I love being a part of the Rite Aid network. Each month the company sends me a box full of goodies to try out. It’s like my birthday and Christmas rolled up into one every month. I never know what I am going to receive. Many of the products they send me end up being my new favorites. Thank goodness we have a Rite Aid near by so I can purchase more of the products that I like the most.
One of the products they sent this month didn’t even last a day! I received two packages of Dove chocolates. Both are made with whole fruit that has been dipped in chocolate. One package was blueberries and the other one was cranberries. Noticed how I said “was”. Between me and my family we finished off both packages before the end of the day. Thank goodness our local Rite Aid carries them. I was able to pick up a few more packages (a couple of them I hide for myself – LOL). I would never think to cover cranberries in chocolate but they pair together so good!
They are also available in chocolate covered cherries. I haven’t seen them locally but I am keeping an eye out for them.
Rite Aid also send me two packs of Mentos Gum (Fresh Mint and Tropical). I’m not much of a gum chewer, but my kids are. I do like to chew gum from time to time. Sometimes it relaxes me. I find if I’m stressing out a bit that chewing on some gum helps to calm me down.
I love Mentos candy but I’ve never had the gum before now. I like it. It does have a bit of a “kick” to it, but that is fine with me.
I’m glad I received two so that I could share with my family.
Just like the Dove chocolates the gum was also quick to disappear in my home.
One product I received that I use daily is Oil of Olay Regenerist Luminous Facial Oil. This clear, fragrance free oil contains nine luxurious enriched natural oils including coconut, apricot kernel, grape seed extract, sunflower, evening primrose, sesame, jojoba, babassu, and mimosa oil. The oils help to hydrate your skin and protect against moisture loss.
Oil of Olay Regenerist Luminous Facial Oil is easy to use and apply. Simply put a few drops on your hand and then gently apply the oil to your skin in a circular motion.
I was concerned that putting oil on my face would make it greasy or cause breakouts. That has not happened. It’s lightweight and absorbs quickly. You don’t even know you are wearing it. I also have not broke out.
So far my face is free from dry patches, which I normally get during the winter months. I attribute that to the oil. It’s really nice. Plus a little bit goes a long way. It’s a big bottle and you only need a few drops each time you use it.
Speaking of winter and dry skin, like many people, the heels of my feet get REALLY dry during the winter months. So much so they split which is not only gross looking, but sometimes painful too.
To remedy this problem I have been using the Amope Pedi Perfect electronic foot file (also from Rite Aid). I’ve been using it for well over a month now to remove dry skin.
Rite Aid send me a jar of Callex. Callex is made especially for dry, cracked heels. It helps to moisturize, soften and smooth cracked heels. Combined with the Amope Pedi Perfect my feet look awesome. I could wear sandals or flip flops right now and not have to worry about my feet being seen. I want to show them off. They look and feel great.
In addition to these products I also received some products from TheraBreath Oral Care. I have never heard of the brand before. One is toothpaste and the other is an oral rinse.
My family of four used up the toothpaste tube right away. I’ve been using the oral rinse. It has a light, minty taste to it. Its not strong like typical mouth rinses are. I find that most mouth rinses are too strong and almost feel like they are burning the inside of my mouth. I like that the TheraBreath Oral Rinse helped to eliminate the bacteria that causes bad breath in a gentle, yet effective, way.
I plan on picking up more of the oral rinse the next time I stop by Rite Aid. Personally I really like how well it works. It also makes me feel more confident that my breath smells clean.
I would have enjoyed the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara that was sent to me, but my teenage daughter needed new mascara. It made no sense to purchase new mascara since Rite Aid was kind enough to send me some, so I gave it to my daughter.
I asked her how she likes it. She says she likes the curved lash brush. She said it helps her to do the corner of her eyelashes much easier (she turns the brush upside down to fit in the corners). She also tells me that is lasts a long time (it doesn’t flake off throughout the day) and it washes off easily.
Since she’s having good luck with the mascara I’ll pick up one for myself when I need to replace my mascara.
One of my goals for the new year was to get on track with my health. Taking a multi-vitamin was on my “to do” list for the new year. Rite Aid must have read my mind because they sent me some vitamins from GNC. I didn’t even know you could buy GNC products at Rite Aid. I was happy to hear that.
I received Ultra Mega Green Women’s Vitamins and Women’s Ultra Mega Women’s 50+. I’m not 50 (yet) so for now I have only been using the Ultra Mega Green Women’s Vitamins. These vitamins are made with eight wholesome vegetable, fruit and green blends. These nutrient rich blends provide your body with cell-protecting antioxidants. They also support immune health which is important during the winter months when colds are rampant.
I plan on using the Women’s Ultra Mega Women’s 50+ multivitamins too because they help support memory function which I need sometimes. They also help with breast and bone health and B-vitamins for energy (which I also need a lot of). These vitamins also combines a premium free radical protection blend with antioxidant vitamins, alpha-lipoic acid and green tea.
Rite Aid sent me a few other goodies which I’ll write about another time (I think this post is long enough – LOL).
