Braun Forehead Thermometer Review

When I received the Braun Forehead Thermometer complimentary from Influenster I was curious how accurate it really was. We were all currently healthy so we didn't get to put it to the full test until this week when sadly we all came down with the flu. The Braun forehead thermometer finally had it's time to shine. I LOVE IT! It's so easy to use. Simply place above eyebrow, hit the button and swipe to the temple and back. It is so simple that I could even use it without waking Elijah. The screen is nice and large making it very easy to read, even in the dark. It also lights up green for no fever, yellow for a slight fever and red for a high fever, making it even easier to determine our temperatures faster! I also like that it shows the last temperature taken when turned on for easy reference whether the fever has increased or decreased. We definitely will be relying on the Braun Forehead Thermometer from now on when we need to quickly, easily and accurately check our temperatures!

Tossing my old toothbrush and loving the new Colgate #SlimSoft !!!

With so many toothbrushes on the market I tend to stick with what I know rather than trying out new ones so I was excited to see Influenster's newest campaign was helping to launch the Colgate Slim Soft. I received this toothbrush complimentary from Influenster to review for myself I was really impressed with it.

The first thing I noticed about the Colgate Slim Soft is the head of the brush is very small, not bulky like a lot of the new brushes on the market. It's perfectly sized to brush your teeth and your gums without feeling like you do not have enough room to maneuver it around.

The next thing I loved about it was the bristles are very soft and comfortable on my extremely sensitive teeth and gums, yet still powerful enough they have no problem removing the plaque.

The last thing I liked about the brush best is the bristles themselves are slimmer with "gliding tips." The Slim Soft boasts 17x slimmer tip bristles than regular end-round bristled toothbrushes for a deeper clean between teeth. I noticed the difference right away with how the bristles swept between and over the teeth.

I think the Slim Soft certainly earns it's name and it has definitely earned it's spot as our families new favorite toothbrush.
