Dove Advanced Care Deodorant – Dare to Go Sleeveless!

I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Influence Central for Dove Advanced Care Deodorant. I received a promotional item to facilitate my review.

Do you ever find yourself hesitating to go sleeveless because you’re ashamed of your underarms? It’s summer time, and it’s sweltering hot in many places, it’s time to enjoy a sleeveless summer! I recently had the opportunity to try a few samples of a new line of deodorant from Dove and if you answered yes to my question above, it may be the answer for you! Even if you proudly go sleeveless already, Dove Advanced Care Deodorant is something worth trying. Dove Advanced Care contains NutriumMoisture, a blend of ingredients that help to moisturize the skin in your underarms and keep them looking great! Dove’s NutriumMoisture can help to create softer, smoother skin in just 3 days and also helps to reduce irritation from shaving. As an added bonus, Dove Advanced Care Deodorant also provides 48-hour odor and wetness protection!

I received 3 full-size samples of Dove Advanced Care and decided to give one to my awesome mom. We both agreed that Dove is a notch above the rest! I immediately noticed the effects of NutriumMoisture and felt that the deodorant glided on very smoothly and felt like it instantly moisturized my skin. I took it along with me on a cruise last week and witnessed the staying power as I swam all day and soaked up the 90-degree sun and humidity in the Bahamas, I never noticed it wearing off! My mom put it to the test while she babysat our two young kids while we were on the cruise, and Dove Advanced Care held up! I love the scent of “Rebalance” which smells of plum and sakura blossom, but there are so many great scents available from powdery to fruity to cucumber and green tea! There is also a Sensitive formula that is hypoallergenic and free of scents.

Proudly going sleeveless on my cruise last week!

Stylist Erin Walsh has partnered with Dove to help challenge women to embrace sleeveless fashion. In her words, “Your clothes will always look better if you feel beautiful and confident in them. As a fashion stylist, I know that sleeveless can often feel scary and make women feel vulnerable or exposed; however the Dove Advanced Care product line provides softer, smoother underarms in just 3 days, so that all women can feel confident going sleeveless.” I couldn’t agree more! Anyone who has shied away from going sleeveless should at least give Dove Advanced Care a try, you never know, you could be proudly flaunting those underarms in just a few days!

Alex’s Lemonade Stand – Elijah’s Story

Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation

Many of you might be familiar with Alex’s Lemonade Stand, a grassroots childhood cancer fundraising campaign started by Alex Scott at barely 4 years of age. Alex was in the process of undergoing treatment for neuroblastoma, a type of childhood cancer, when she decided that she wanted to help raise money for her hospital so she could help other kids fighting cancer. A truly selfless child, she lost her fight with cancer in 2004 at age 8 but her legacy lives on through the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF).

Elijah’s story

Auntie Anne’s has partnered with ALSF to help raise funds to fight childhood cancer through a Tilt campaign. As part of the campaign, a different child hero is being highlighted each week and I have the privilege of talking about a brave young boy named Elijah. Elijah is from Little Rock, Arkansas and was diagnosed with stage IV neuroblastoma in August 2005. After a round of successful treatment at his local children’s hospital, Elijah’s cancer sadly returned in 2006. He eventually had to travel with his family over 1,200 miles to get treatment at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. He’s receiving the help he needs in part due to organizations like ALSF. Elijah has been happy to host his own lemonade stands through ALSF which shows what a truly remarkable boy he really is. Please consider helping out Elijah and other child heroes who are bravely battling cancer by visiting the Auntie Anne’s and ALSF Mighty Fight Tilt campaign today and donating anything you can manage!

School Fundraising with Schoola…and a Schoola Coupon Code!

I recently posted here about a remarkable new school fundraising website called Schoola, where you can earn money for the school of your choice simply by donating outgrown children’s clothing. When I first posted, I was new to the site myself but excited to give it a try! Well, we requested our first couple of donation bags and have gotten to work cleaning up our garage of gently used children’s clothing, and we have a TON! I quickly filled up our first two postage-paid bags and dropped them off at the local post office. I immediately ordered more bags as we still have a lot more to donate! My son is super excited to see how much money his old clothing earns as 40% of the proceeds go directly back to his school, how awesome is that? My 2-year old daughter will even benefit from the sale of her heaps of clothing as she’ll be attending the same school in just a few short years. If you want to request your own free donation bag, head to Schoola and choose the school you would like to benefit and they’ll send you a bag, easy as that!

Two of our many bags of outgrown clothing we’re sending to Schoola to earn money for my son’s school!

We’ve also taken to shopping on Schoola, all of those outgrown clothes we donated need to be replaced with stuff that actually fits! My kids are growing like crazy right now and all of the jeans I just bought for my son at full-price this winter have become way too small for him (maybe you’ll end up buying a pair if you have a size 5 or 6 boy!) I was elated to find practically new brand-name jeans on Schoola for my son at a fraction of the price I usually pay for his jeans! I found him two great pairs each for under $10, not a bad deal! My daughter has been lucky to have a ton of hand-me-downs from friends, but I still couldn’t resist getting her a few cute shirts from Schoola, they were practically free! If you want to pick out a few items for your own kids, use Schoola coupon code BacktoSchoola20 and get 20% off your entire purchase through 8/20/14! Remember that whenever you make purchases on Schoola, you are also helping fund education as 40% of what you spend will end up back in the school of the donor. It’s a deal too good to refuse!
