Eclos Anti-Aging Skin Care Kit Giveaway


Plant extracts, vitamins and anti-oxidants work in synergy with the Plant Stem Cell technology to help minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and tired skin. This method is the secret to success for the Eclos Beauty skincare product line. While I personally have only had a few days with the Eclos Anti-Aging Skin Care Kit the system thus far refreshes my skin after use. Leaving me with a wonderfully clean feeling that carries me through the day till my next evening wash. Unlike many products of this time, Eclos contains natural plant based ingredients that are easy on the skin. It is always amazing to find beauty products that are stemmed directly from mother earth.

The Eclos Anti-Aging Skin Care Kit has everything you need to get you started in a daily natural anti-aging routine. You can find this product and more available in stores and online at retailers such as Target and Walgreens. The Eclos Anti-Aging Skin Care Kit six piece set is a great value at just $19.99.

Teethease Teething Jewelry Giveaway *Closed*

Teethease was designed to provide a product that is fun but useful for mothers, fathers and care-givers alike. Although there are many different choices when it comes time to teething products, we found it difficult to find any that offered convenience and style, while still focusing on safety. That became the start of our journey to provide a convenient alternative to what was being offered. Teetheaseis a fun, functional and fashionable piece of jewelry that is an accessible alternative to digging through a purse or diaper bag. Teethease is made of FDA approved medical grade silicone, free of BPA, PVC, latex, heavy metals, phthalates and meets the highest international safety standards (EN-71).

My boys are out of the teething stage but boy would I have liked some teething jewelry when they were younger! Check out the review below by Teri at Mom to Bed by 8.

I have become a big fan of teething jewelry over the last few years. After having numerous necklaces damaged and even broken from my son's obsessive pulling and biting as his teeth made their way in, I finally gave in and invested in some great looking pieces like those you will find at Teethease.

Summer is upon us and we spend so much time on-the-go that it's almost impossible to ensure that my boys are eating right...

Basically they're the perfect anytime, anywhere snack.

Summer Must-Have: Toweligator Beach Clamp Review and Giveaway

Have you ever been relaxing on the beach when all of a sudden a strong breeze blows through and whips up your towel throwing sand all over you, the kids, and your belongings? Well, thanks to the Toweligator that's no longer a problem!

About the Toweligator:
The Toweligator was first conceptualized in the Caymen Islands by Martin Hellkamp and his wife and was then perfected further north. The warm, tropical sun was bronzing their skin while their minds relaxed and a refreshing ocean breeze…kept blowing the towels off their chairs. “There has to be a better way!” And so the adventure began; to end the frustration of beach and pool towels staying everywhere but the chair.

As they dove into the creative seas of invention to produce a masterpiece that is functional, fun, and affordable, the Toweligator came to life! The product was originally developed to hold your beach towel in place with it’s gator-like grip and it’s strong and flexible tail, but the Toweligator’s uses continue to expand. Now you may find Toweligtors holding snacks, toys, clothes, and small pets off the ground to dry or securely in one place.

Little Kids Inc. No-Spill Bubble Machine Review and Giveaway *Closed*

If you're an avid Life With Two Boys reader you probably already know how much we love bubbles! We were lucky enough to work with Little Kids Inc. in the past and I was super excited when they contacted us about reviewing their No-Spill Bubble Machine.

The No-Spill Bubble Machine offers tons of bubbly fun without the mess... Simply attach the top and bottom of the machine, press the button, and watch the bubbles fly! What's great about the No-Spill Bubble Machine is the fact that kids can carry it around, knock it over, and turn it upside down and you don't have to worry about the bubble solution spilling all over the place.

We spent a Day Out with Thomas!

Thomas has been big in our house since Brayden was little and every year my husband and I talk about taking the boys to see him when he visits Strasburg Rail Road... Well this year we finally did it!

Last Saturday, June 16th, we spend the day at Strasburg Rail Road enjoying our Day Out with Thomas: Mystery on the Rails Tour! We got up super early because Brayden and Trevor were so excited, got dressed and headed to Lancaster. Unfortunately I had come down with the flu the day before so we didn't get to spend as much time there as we would have liked but we still had a blast!


The boys were completely overwhelmed at the amount of Thomas toys there were in the shops and all the fun Thomas-themed activities, but the best part of all was getting to ride on Thomas!
