Happy October! It’s time for me to share some products that I’ve been gifted to review. Each of these has been tested by myself, my daughter and my mom. If you’re anything like us, you love to try new products. We hope that you enjoy our suggestions. I DO make an effort to read the product ingredients on the labels and only use products that meet my high standards. I promise when I review products here on my blog, I will let you know how they stack up on the toxin-free scale.
