Aveeno Baby Eczema Care Night Time Balm, 311 Grams

This balm is seriously a life saver. My two month old developed eczema on her cheeks, arms and thighs - I spoke with our doctor and she suggested we try some strong moisturizers first, she is not a fan of prescribing steroid creams for little ones - and frankly I would have a hard time using it on such a little baby so I was happy she thought of trying something else first. This overnight balm works wonders. I could see an incredible improvement after just couple of nights - hubby noticed it too! Definitely recommend. At this moment my little one still has some dry patches but they are not as red and flaky as when we started using this balm.

Most drugstores carry the Aveeno Baby product line, with that being said I got mine on Amazon, they had a very reasonable price. I am keeping my eyes out for deals in the stores I usually go to so if by any chance it goes on sale at any point, I will stock up!

Melissa & Doug Easel

This is a great easel! I wish it was a little easier to put together, it was a bit frustrating at times because some steps could have been explained better and in slightly different order (ie they show you how to put the board on, but the recommended height for age doesn't come until after - so we had to redo the screws because of that). The overall quality is however good and my almost 23month old daughter loves it - she is able to use the chalkboard, the dry erase board, and I did purchase some paper as well.
The easel does NOT come with a roll of paper, just fyi.

You can purchase yours here.

Nivea 2 in 1 moisturizing primer for dry to sensitive skin

I am a huge fan of Nivea products so was thrilled to be selected by @chickadvisor for this campaign - so I fully disclose #igotitfree to try. With that being said, I always give rating based on my experience - most brands do not expect a glowing review if you don't like the product!

This Nivea primer is basically 2in1 - a moisturizer and a primer in one box. It comes in the same box as all of their creams. The primer goes on just as nicely as any of the creams, and it left my skin feeling hydrated and even. I am currently in the last few weeks of pregnancy and I have been feeling like crap because I cannot sleep, so I was curious if this primer would make a difference in my appearance once I use it and put my makeup on. Lo and behold, it did! The primer evened out my skin and it was much easier to put make up on and make my skin look less tired. I felt a lot more confident going to work these past few days when I was able to use the primer underneath my makeup.
The makeup lasted all day without any touch ups, and my skin never felt tight and dry like it usually does at the end of the day.
So for me, this product is something I will definitely buy once I run out.

Oikos Super Grains

What does the product taste like? What is the texture like?
This Oikos yogurt is super thick and yummy. The taste is not too sweet, and the texture is not as smooth as yogurts without grains. In one way I found this yogurt a little dry if that makes sense to say about a yogurt.

Would you buy it?
YES, it's convenient size for carrying for lunch at work or school! I love that this yogurt has both dairy and fibre, it's double the goodness for one's overall health. With hat being said the amount of fibre in this yogurt is not huge...but as most Canadians typically do not eat enough fibre in a day, every little bit counts.

Would you recommend it to people?
Yes, it's a yummy convenient snack!

What are your overall thoughts about the product from a healthy eating standpoint?
It's a decent product. It does contain sugar but not as much as some of the yogurts targeted at kids, so I would feel comfortable feeding my little one with it as well. I found it more filling than a regular yogurt so if you are worried about portion control, this one will help you staying on track!

How would you rate this product overall (out of 5 stars)?
I am giving 4 out of 5
