With the holidays here, I think it is important to take a moment and reflect upon what we’re thankful for- not just on Thanksgiving, but always. For me, I am beyond thankful for my family, my friends, my health and theirs, and so much more. We have been working hard with our children to focus on the blessings we HAVE and the many things we have to be thankful for, because these are the things that matter to us most. I want my children to be able to look at the world and see it through the lens of what they do have, and not what others have and they do not. It’s a tough concept but at some point, I understood it, as did my husband, so we have hope that our children will too.
I’m also thankful for my blog, my readers especially, and also the opportunities that this site has provided for my family that we may not otherwise have had. I’m not simply talking about review products but, for example, without my site I’m not sure I”d have known that Walmart sells Crystal Roll On Deoderant- nor that I’d have the opportunity to not only try some, but to know it exists. The product is with the regular deoderant products, but on the top shelf, which is above my eye line and likely not to have been noticed by me. I’ve also tried a few other natural deoderants and found they didn’t work for me in the past. But I’m very thankful that my site has opened new doors and new paths in my life, especially when they allow me (and my family) to use more natural, safer products for our bodies, both internally and externally. (Hint: Check the Crystal site for a $1.00 coupon!)
I headed to Walmart, and went right to the deoderant aisle with Baby B. We only got distracted by a few holiday displays on the way. I’m a creature of habit so I tend to buy the same 1-2 brands, formulas and scents of deoderant, although what I buy I use because it is effective, it isn’t something that is natural or good-for-you ingredient wise. This has bugged me but as I said, I haven’t had luck doing natural deoderants (I’m too stinky?). Since I was specifically looking for a product, I really noticed while looking all of the different products available. I can’t believe there’s anyone in the world who can smell bad with all of the deoderant products available. Holy moly. Formulas, scents, container shapes, brands- so many options. I was especially thankful when I did find the Crystal and saw how AFFORDABLE it is!!
Fast forward a few weeks of using this deoderant and I am sold. I already grabbed a few more last time I was in a Walmart. I love this stuff. Its kind of weird when it goes on- feels super wet and thick, but it works, it doesn’t stain my clothes and there’s no aluminum in it. I’ve also run a 5k race (me! my first one, too), the Manchester Road Race (4.74 miles) and 2.7 miles just this week alone wearing it and I’m still stink free. (I mean, yes, I showered and stuff, after, but this product performs really well for me). I’m so excited – and thankful – I have a natural product that works and is affordable- and readily available!!
I’m also thankful that with more and more natural products available at affordable pricing, hopefully I can live to a very old age!!
