                                                     JOURNEYS MOTHER PELLET LOTION

I found this website about a month a go which is
I originally bought the Journeys Mother Lotion Bar and loved it but the owner of the company ( Jackie ) also sent out to me a few of her 3 quarters of an inch heart shaped Pellet Lotion.  It is the same exact product but instead of being in a soap bar form  it  is in  these heart shaped pellets.
I love love these little heart shaped pellet gems.
You just take one out rub it in your hands which melts instantly with the warmth of your hands and you just glide it  onto your skin and let it sink in to quench  the thirst of your dry parched skin.
It is like a miracle worker
She even has travel sizes of these little gems which is great just do not put them in your pocket because they will melt.
They have 4 different scents to choose from and their scents are not over powering it is a nice light fragrance.,,
almost like a light  summer evening breeze frolicking throughout   your skin

She is just coming out with a new product which is these heart shaped pellets in a all natural sunscreen
( Fabulous ) perfect timing for this time of year.

These heart shaped pellets are not on her website as of yet but you can call her and let her know that you would like  to try some and she will give you prices on this
You will not be sorry I think this product will rock for the summer time especially because it is all natural
Jackie's mobile number is 201 952 1470 and once again her website is
You have got to try out her pellets and her sunscreen pellets they really work for a fantastic quenching moisturizer for the skin that is all natural.  As the professionals say only the best will do and this in my opinion is it in a  heart shaped pellet.   Your skin will give you a big thumbs up.

Thank You

There are a couple of new blood glucose meters that have just come in the market for the US for your Diabetes Care Management
The first one I wanted to let you know about is the IBG Star Blood Glucose Meter.     This meter I like a lot I got this one for my son he is a Type 1 Diabetic that I have a hard time getting him to test his blood sugars.  I found this meter on their website and kept on trying to have our insurance company get it for him.   i finally bought it for him it is so new that it is not in stores yet and most health insurance companies do not have it in yet
It was launched in the US in the past month.
What I like the most about this meter is that it attaches to your iphone and you can have it stay there or you can take it off and when you put it back on it stores the results that you had when it was off the Iphone.
You have all your results right there and if you are having a doctor's appointment coming up or if you are having a problem with your blood sugars that you  need to have your doctor see the results so that he or she can help you manage your Diabetes better you can instantly down load your results and send them to your doctor by email.
The website for the IBG Star Meter is and their telephone number is 1855 424 7827
On their website you can fill out a form to get a discount on test strips.  The cost of the meter is 76.00 and right now the only way to get this meter is to go the website or  
I did call our local Walgreen's Pharmacy and they were able to order it for me.
My son loves this meter he says that it is so easy and it is kind of fun to use.  He says that the only draw back is that it does not come with a case for it.  I called the company today and they said that they are working on getting a case for it but for right now they do not have one

The next meter I would like to talk about is the Accu-Chek Nano this is the newest meter from Accu-Check.  It is samll sleek and is incredibly accurate for results.  I like it becuase it has a back light which makes things a lot easier when you are testing in a spot that you could stand some light while testing .
the websit eis and their telephone number is 1866 775 2016
I have not received this meter yet but I am supposed to get one shortly so I  will let you know about it then
They are giving out free meters for this one

The last meter I want to talk about is the one Touch Verio IQ this is the newest meter for Life Scan One touch meters.
This meter tells you the patterns that you have with your blood sugar results .  It will notify you of these patterns on the blood glucose meter so that you can talk it over with your doctor to make changes to help with your diabetes management.
At this time they are not offering free meters they are offering a 30.00 coupon to use towards the meter,  the meter cost around 70.00 and the strips are 40.00 but once again you can sign up for a discount card for the strips and they will take off 20.00 so the strips for 50 strips will cost you 20.00
You can call the Life Scan One Touch Site Verio IQ site at the following number 1 888 567 3003

                                    MORE GLUTEN FREE OPTIONS FOR SKINCARE

I just found a few more websites for gluten free skin care products that I have tried and really like.
The first one is at the website, when you are there you will see some catalogs for different products I went for the soaps and tried a few and really liked them they are super moisturizing and really lather up quite nicely.  I tried out the Unscented  Charcoal soap , the Charcoal Milk Soap and the Charcoal Lavender Soap , all of them I really liked very much .  My skin was soft supple and felt rejuvenated.
The Charcoal soaps and different products are supposed to be great for skin problems even some medical centers use charcoal for skin infections and problems of the skin.  I got the Charcoal Salve for my husband he has a spot on his calf that never goes away that is dry and inflamed.  He has tried this and it looks better now.
The soaps are like I said super moisturizing and a rich lather but they do have the color of charcoal for the lather but if it works who cares and it is supposed to be great for your face and supposed to help out with any wrinkles you might have.  .  

Another great website for dry skin is This is a lotion in the shape of a soap bar.  It is not soap but a super moisturizing bar full of deep moisturizers to give your skin a pick me up, this is for people  if you have skin like mine ( Lizard Skin ) it has really helped.  You just place the lotion bar  on the dry areas of your body  and the warmth of your skin melts the lotion onto your skin which is great you do not have a drooping drippy mess to rub into your skin . You  just have a thin layer to smooth into your skin with no residue, your skin drinks it all in.
They have 4 scents to choose from one of them of course is unscented and they even have it that you can custommize your own bar of lotion .  You have the choice of three different butters to put into it then you have a choice of three different carrier oils to put  into it then lastly you have a choice of 3 different essential oils to put into it.  I was just thinking about it and with this you could easily make up your own insect repellent in a bar of lotion for when you  are going camping or beaching at the sea shore just look up what scents the insects do not like for essential oils and you can make up your own insect repellent knowing what is going into it maybe even a repellent for your pet's skin issues. It goes onto your skin very easily and smooths into your skin right away I love the product very  much and it is labeled gluten free.  She also has Lotion Pellets which are little hearts the size of a half of an inch that are in a little bag which is great if you want to bring to  some where yo are going to or if you are traveling for a day or two and want to bring some lotion with you.  It is the same concept you just place the little heart in the palm of your hand rub together and smooth over your body.  She does have traveling Pellets which are in a little tube she does say on her website do not put this in your pockets it will melt

Another website i like is I like these a lot also they have a foot powder that is out of this world it smells so sweet and nice and it is all natural.  I had thought about getting it for my husband but I think I use it more then he does .  The ingredients in it are Cornstarch, Baking Soda , Arrowroot Powder, Kaolin Clay, Sage, Chamomile, and Tea Tree  Essential Oil..  The soaps are all natural  and their prices are very reasonable and they make great gifts

Thank you
