Did You Know...
...the European Parliament approved the creation of bee "recovery zones" across the Continent to boost the plummeting bee numbers. These zones will have a variety of plants rich in nectar and pollen as well as free of pesticides.
Today I will review for you something that I liked veddy, veddy much...
It is Tom's of Maine Natural Conditioning Shave Cream. Although it's not listed on their website (they have a lot of products - maybe they ran out of room?), I still love their website. Click on it to check it all out. Here's the review:
REVIEW: As I was going through all things natural in the natural foods store I kept coming across this Company's products and I would look at the label, be impressed, then put it down. I finally decided on getting this shave cream for my husband because he has been a Barbasol man since the day of our 'I Do's' but he itches after like it gave him fleas. Needless to say, I hate to see the man suffer so I'm glad I bought this. All week it sat there in the medicine cabinet...all lonely and getting bullied by the big, bad chemicals that sadly still live there (until mama can completely switch our products over to the natural and sunny side). After waiting what seemed like forever for the hubby to use it and tell me EVERYTHING he thought or felt about it - great times! - I finally realized that hmm....what is this itchy stuff all over my legs? HAIR! I completely forgot that I could use it for myself! (Enter a Homer Simpson D'OH!) Off I went, I wet my legs with warm water, squeezed (and when I say squeezed I mean Tom really made me work for my smooth legs - that stuff takes some elbow grease to get out of the tube) a small bit onto my hands and lathered over my legs. It gives a decent amount of lather. I'm learning not to expect a huge Calvin & Hobbes type bubble bath lather in a lot of natural products. I think they keep the glycerin (which gives it that sizzle) to a minimum. Fine by me, as long as I come out cleaner than when I went in! After the shave, I looked at my fine work and I was quite impressed. My skin looked and felt great and I didn't have that itching feeling afterwards. I was hoping that it would have cured my hair growth altogether but since sometimes I'm sure I'm half Chewbacca - my leg hairs grow quickly whenever they come in contact with cold air. I have a very protective body I guess... Anyway, short story long I loved it. I prefer it, 5 out of 5 Lynns would recommend it to her patients and it gets the coveted 5 carrots. I'm converted and I hope you try it out.

SUMMARY: I really liked this product and even more importantly, I appreciate the company of Tom's of Maine. Their methods and ideas on animal testing, product ingredients, and consumer treatment just blew me away. I encourage all of you to go to their website and peruse around. You'll be impressed. Tom's
