AcneFree Energizing 3-in-1 Acne Wipes - Review

I received product for review. The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way. Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services. Your opinions and results may differ.


Not too long ago I posted a giveaway for AcneFree Energizing 3-in-1 Acne Wipes. Now I've had the chance to fully review the product myself. I don't usually suffer from acne but do use wipes and facial cloths to remove dirt and makeup from my face.

AcneFree® Energizing 3-in-1 Acne Wipes are formulated with orange and mint extracts to cleanse skin, treat acne and energize the senses all in one simple step. Available at major drug and mass retailers, AcneFree® Energizing 3-in-1 Acne Wipes retails for $6.99. There are 30 pre-moistened wipes per package, and the package is resealable.

With an energizing burst of orange and mint, the acne wipes are thick and adequately rid my face of makeup, dirt, and sweat. I'm able to use one wipe at a time and have full success in effectiveness. The wipes contain Salicylic Acid, meant to help prevent breakouts and keep pores open. In short, I like 'em!

The Other Woman is coming to DVD and Blu-ray, July 29th!

It’s time to get even! Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment takes girl power to a whole new level with THE OTHER WOMAN, debuting on Blu-ray & DVD July 29. With Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann as the leading ladies and newcomers Kate Upton and Nicki Minaj bringing the jokes left and right, ladies all over better be ready for the perfect movie to end their summer in style! Cameron Diaz leads a knockout cast in this irreverent comedy about love, lust and the laws of karma. New York attorney Carly Whitten (Diaz) is nobody’s fool. So when she accidentally discovers that her too-good-to-be-true boyfriend Mark (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) is married, she’s less than thrilled. Not only that, she and Mark’s wife Kate (Leslie Mann), learn about yet another mistress (Kate Upton)! Great boyfriends are hard to find, even in the movies. To prepare you for the release of The Other Woman, here is a list of the top ten boyfriends that Hollywood films have to offer.

The Best Hollywood Boyfriends:

1. Noah Calhoun- The Notebook

“So it's not gonna be easy. It's going to be really hard; we're gonna have to work at this everyday, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, everyday. You and me... everyday.”

2. Jack Dawson- The Titanic

“Winning that ticket, Rose, was the best thing that ever happened to me... it brought me to you. And I'm thankful for that, Rose. I'm thankful.”

3. Harry Burns- When Harry Met Sally

“I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.”

4. Leo Collins- The Vow

“I vow to fiercely love you in all your forms, now and forever. I promise to never forget that this is a once in a lifetime love. And to always know in the deepest part of my soul that no matter what challenges might carry us apart, we will always find our way back to each other.”

5. Lloyd Dobler- Say Anything

“What I really want to do with my life -- what I want to do for a living -- is I want to be with your daughter. I'm good at it.”

6. Sam Wheat- Ghost

“I love you, Molly. I've always loved you.”

7. Westley- The Princess Bride

“Death cannot stop true love. All it can do is delay it for a while.”

8. Patrick Verona- 10 Things I Hate About You

“It's not everyday you find a girl who'll flash someone to get you out of detention.”

9. Augustus Waters- The Fault In Our Stars

“I'm in love with you and I'm not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. I'm in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we're all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we'll ever have, and I am in love with you."

10. Phil - The Other Woman

Hit the Yard Sales Jackpot


I love a good bargain. Being that I work the graveyard shift, it's rare I get the chance to hit area yard sales. I'd rather head straight home and hit my bed.

I didn't have to work last Friday night so I got up at the break of dawn on Saturday with my oldest daughter and hit the area yard sales. My wallet was a lot less slimmer by the time it was all said and done, but I got lots of things I needed wanted.

Shelby came home with some loot too, including a glass vanity for only $10.

I came home with a wooden tray, greenery plant, wall decoration...

bath towel set, shorts, blouses, jeans, a dress...

books, photo frame, wire basket, new curtain, apple decor...

and two purses!

I felt like I hit the mother lode. Lots of nice stuff at a great price! My favorite was the purple and black purse that looked like it'd never been used, for only $3.

Do you go to yard sales often? What's one of the best bargains you've found?

Planes: Fire & Rescue Soundtrack Released - Giveaway

I'll be receiving products in exchange for this post. Pleas do your own research before purchasing products or using services. Your opinions and results may differ.


Award-winning composer Mark Mancina, who won a Grammy® for Best Soundtrack Album (with Phil Collins) for his work on Disney’s 1999 feature “Tarzan,” produced and composed the score for “Planes: Fire & Rescue.” The Planes: Fire & Rescue original motion picture soundtrack takes off July 15.

The melodic score was recorded with a 90-piece orchestra. For Dusty’s training montage, filmmakers agreed it called for a bold acoustic piano that would stand out from the orchestra. Says Mancina, “We were lucky enough to have Bruce Hornsby play piano on the score, which brought a completely different color and a much more mature feel to the score.”

Hornsby, a multiple Grammy®-winning artist, also played a special cue that can be heard near the end of the film, supporting the serious and emotional tone filmmakers sought.

Brad Paisley performs two new songs for the film, including “Runway Romance,” which was written by director Bobs Gannaway and Danny Jacob, and “All In,” a song Paisley signed on to write and perform after hearing of the film’s firefighting themes. Paisley also lends his voice in a cameo appearance as a pickup truck in Honkers Sports Bar.

Newcomer/singer/songwriter Spencer Lee performs “Still I Fly,” a song he co-composed with his writing partners Windy Wagner and Michael “Smidi” Smith. “Still I Fly” can be heard when Dusty, after discovering that he may never race again, leaves Propwash Junction en route to Piston Peak to train as an aerial firefighter.
