{ Tone Body Wash - Leaves your skin hydrated and smelling wonderful! }

I have always been the type of person to want to try out new products that come out - specifically beauty related products. Every time something new comes out on the market that interests me, I know there is most likely going to be a good value coupon that usually comes out about the same time, giving me the opportunity to either try it for free or at a great price. That way, if I buy it, try it out and do not end up liking it, I do not feel like I spent a fortune on something I only used once and did not like. However, this happens very rarely and more often than not I really enjoy the new products that I try. Such is the case with Tone Body Wash.

Tone Body Wash in 'Petal Soft' is a fantastic body wash in more ways than one. First off, I really like the packaging. The bottle is easy to pick up and hold in the shower, which may sound strange but I know it is an important feature to a lot of people. The lid snaps right open so you are not trying to finagle to get the bottle open. The design of the bottle is really pretty as well. Each scent of body wash has it's own color and design and I really like that.

The 'Petal Soft' scent body wash goes a long way - you only need a little bit to have your skin feeling wonderful and lightly scented. Another feature that I really liked about this body wash was that the scent stayed on my skin even after I left the shower. Many body washes do not do this, so this was a major bonus. I do not want to just smell the body wash when I am in the shower - I want to the scent to stay even when I am out! While the scent does last, it is not overpowering at the same time - also a major plus!

The 'Petal Soft' scent contains pink peony and rose oil with vitamin E, which contributes to my skin feeling soft and moisturized after I use it. It is hard not to think you are not at the spa because of it's hydrating qualities and wonderful scent. I have sensitive skin, so having a body wash that does not have an overpowering smell, yet still makes my skin feel good, is a must. Tone Body Wash in 'Petal Soft' definitely receives a ten out of ten from me!

I highly recommend that you give the Tone Body Wash line a try if you have not experienced it already. There are numerous scents to choose from - Vino Moisture (this one has crushed grapes (!), shea butter and vitamin E), Mango Splash, Oatmeal and Shea Butter and Ocean Therapy - just to name a few. It would be difficult to not find a scent you did not end up liking. 'What if I don't like body wash and prefer a bar of soap instead?' you may ask. Well, Tone has that covered! You can find all of these wonderful scents in a bar soap in addition to the body washes. Another plus for Tone!

If you do decide to try this body wash line out for the first time, or it is the current brand you use, or you have used it in the past, please let me know your thoughts. I am interested to hear about the other scents and if you had a spa experience like I did when I used Tone Body Wash!

{ Kroger Skillet Meals - On the table in no time at all }

Before you know it, the holidays are here. It has not even been Thanksgiving yet and the radio stations are already playing Christmas music...crazy, right?! And then comes to mind all of the things you must get accomplished before family and friends come over to celebrate the holidays. You are worried about what food you are going to serve, presents to buy and a myriad of other things you know you absolutely have to get done. In the craziness of the holidays, what are you supposed to do about the in-between meals? The meals that are leading up to the big day? Who wants to spend even more time in the kitchen trying to come up with something for dinner? This is where Kroger Skillet Meals come in.

Kroger Skillet Meals are the perfect answer to the dinners that fall on days that come between holidays. They take minimal time to prepare - they are ready to eat in just TEN minutes! TEN MINUTES! Now how many meals can you say accomplish that? There are several different flavors of skillet meals. These flavors include Tuscan-Style Penne, Chicken Fajitas, Sorrento-Style Gnocchi, Shrimp Lo Mein and Sausage Rigatoni. I decided on the Tuscan-Style Penne because it has one of my favorite vegetables in it - asparagus. Yum! The main ingredients for the Tuscan-Style Penne included grilled chicken breast, asparagus and sun-dried tomatoes in a roasted garlic cream sauce. I absolutely love anything that has garlic in it, so this was another reason why I was excited to try this flavor. All of the ingredients were very fresh and delicious - you would never even guess that the meal comes frozen. Each meal comes with two servings so it is the right amount for two people.

This meal was paired with a Kroger Salad Kit and Kroger Garlic Bread. The salad kit comes with everything I like to eat with my salad - dressing, cheese and bacon bits. There was enough for two people to have a nice sized salad. I just threw all of the ingredients into a salad bowl, mixed them together and let each person decide on how much dressing they wanted. I really enjoy having a salad with almost every meal, so having this kit was fantastic. The lettuce was already cut up, the cheese and bacon bits were ready to just be mixed in with the lettuce...delicious! The garlic bread was ready in ten minutes as well, which really pleased me. I thought maybe I was going to have to put it in the oven a few minutes before I started cooking the skillet meal, but no! Both items were ready at the same time. I am so used to spending at least thirty minutes, if not more, on preparing a dinner each night. The Kroger Skillet Meal and sides were absolutely refreshing and reminds me that yes, you can have a meal ready to eat in no time flat!

If you are looking for a quick meal that offers you ingredients that are delicious, ready in ten minutes and enjoyed by your entire family, look to Kroger Skillet Meals and sides. You will certainly make these staple items when you go grocery shopping!
