Bluum Box 2

Emily TuckerComment
I received -October's Bluum box: Girl Talk- a couple weeks ago but have just finally gotten round to trying my products. This month they are super fab and still a few more to try. 

1. Baby Symbolizer App- I'm lazy and you have to email them to get a redemption code and I am hesitant to bother anyways since Hayden would just eat and drool on my iPhone... Cool idea though.
2. Dr.Robin Shampoo/Body Wash and Sunscreen Samples- Also have not tried these yet.. I don't think Hayden really needs sunscreen at the moment but I will definitely try the body wash during her bath today.
3. Baby Gourmet Juicy Pear & Garden Greens- Hayden isn't eating solids yet but I 'm planning to  start her on them next month since someone is getting her highchair for Christmas. I have given her tastes of things though and I'm thinking she would probably like this as long as its more pear-y.
4. Strivectin-SD- I don't know any girl that wouldn't want a sample of Strivectin. A modern miracle worker for wrinkles and stretch marks. I've used it only around my eyes and forehead wrinkles at night for the last 3 days so far (they suggest morning and night) and I think it is tightening a bit. It has a light tingle/cooling feeling when you put it on, which I love. The only problem is if I end up liking it - a 5 oz tube is $135 bucks!
5. Super cute bonus magnet- bees are kind of Hayden's theme for her decor, so I love this. I can't wait till she is big enough to play with magnets on the fridge.
6. CJ's Butter- I heard about CJ's Butter a few months ago through a cloth diapering board and have wanted to try it but already have a couple diaper creams. I received their Toasted Almond & Cherry Blossom scent and seriously if I didn't know better I would eat it because it is so delicious smelling! Not only does it smell amazing, it is super soft and glides on providing a nice barrier for little one's bum and seems to heal a rash almost instantly. I will definitely be using CJ's Butter from now on and I can't wait to try some of their other scents (some faves: blueberry crumble, coconut lime dream, honeyed patchouli and warm vanilla cake) and supposedly its good for dry skin, eczema and can even be used as leave-in conditioner too.

Hope everyone is having a good month, its been crazy busy for us and about to get crazier but all in good fun!

Have you heard of Birchbox? Well there is a new kid on the block, literally. Sort of. 

Meet the Bluumbox. Bluum is the same concept as the Birch - except for Mom & Baby. 

For those that don't know what the heck I'm talking about at all... Soooo you sign up for a subscription and around the 15th of the month you get a box full of surprise items and samples. 
Birch = luxe cosmetics samples - Bluum = assorted samples and full size items for Mom & Baby
Birch box just had their one year anniversary and Bluum box just launched. I decided I had to try it out and also gifted a 3 month subscription to a pregnant friend.

What's in it?

A) The Drooly Bib by Wry Baby - not only is this bib shaped like drool but it has a special inner layer to catch and not let drool seep through the other side. Genius!
B) Itzy Ritzy Snack Bag - I love these and had planned on buying some and will buy some more for us. A much better alternative to the regular plastic snack baggie, this one is reusable/washable plus bpa free. I got the cute whale but they have other options.
C) Episencial Soothing Cream - For eczema and itchy/dry skin, this cream is smooth with a super light natural scent and has helped soften the baby bumps on Hayden's face. Made for the little one but adults can use as well. Made in the USA. (4 oz tube, um hello full size item!)
D) Bum Boosa Bamboo Baby Wipes - Not that drastically different than the 7th Generation wipes we already use, slightly scented.
E)  Magnet illustrated by Mimia Johnson - Nice little treat for the kid
F) Apothederm Stretch Mark cream - I'm out of the stretch mark stage but will try to use on remaining stretch marks.

I love how simple things like a package can make your day..
