Hey folks! Have you ever wondered when reading a blogger's product review if they really liked the product or if they were just writing good things about it because they (more than likely) received the product in question for free? If so, you're not alone. I'm not a hardcore review/giveaway blogger by any means (which I'm sure you've noticed!), but I've done my fair share. Even if I end up not liking an item or it just plain and simple doesn't work for our family, I still like to be honest about it. (In a polite manner, of course.)
So, what does all of this have to do with today's post? Well, I thought it would be fun to share with you what products I have reviewed since I started blogging that I still use, have gotten the most use out of, and still love! I've been meaning to do a post like this for awhile and what better time of year, right?
1) Ozeri Instavac Food Storage Set
These things are amazing! I won't go into details since you can read the review for yourself by following the link above, but I still use these all the time. Not just for leftovers, either. Just last night John had the bright idea to use one of the bigger sizes as a muffin container. I've also used them as mixing bowls when I didn't feel like dirtying up one of our big ones.
2) Lullaby Light Cube
I have to admit that I can't write about this without having a little smirk on my face. I recently had a comment on my review of this product on Amazon from a fellow user (reading between the lines: troll). His (I'm assuming) or her comment was short and to the point: Sounds like you work for the company. I sent a nice little message back to him stating that I didn't, but I did receive the product for review and regardless, my daughter still loves it after over a year of using it.
In this instance, "loves" is quite possibly an understatement. She requests it every night and everyday at naptime. "Moon? Moon? Moon?" The Lullaby Light Cube is fantastic. No sarcasm for once.
3) Woolzies Dryer Balls & ReusaWool Dryer Balls
Both sets of my dryer balls permanently reside in my dryer. I have to say that I did notice a difference sometimes on certain loads of laundry when we were living with my parents and didn't use our dryer balls. Not surprisingly, it took towels and heavy things like blankets longer to dry. I also like them because they don't have yucky chemicals in them!
Pink Lemonade Shop Cloth Pads
I have to admit I still use tampons most of the time during my period...But to be fair, I only have two pads from PLS that are actually, well, pad sized. All the rest are pantyliners. If you are thinking about trying cloth pads, definitely be sure to check out Pink Lemonade Shop! They have super soft fabrics and fun designs...for what it's worth. :D
Dustpan & Whisk Broom from For Small Hands
I know I just posted my review for this about a month ago, but we've actually been using it for a few months now. Not only does Myka enjoy using it to "help" clean up messes, it comes in handy for me as well if there is a mess that's not worth getting the broom for!
