GIANTmicrobes Christmas Review and Giveaway

Christmas is right around the corner as much as I hate to admit it. I am a stickler when it comes to shopping and always wait mostly until the last minute.  We were able to do a review on GIANTmicrobes Christmas themed box.  This is the one we received. Who know microbes could be so cute????? Tis the season for the flu and everything else the kids bring home. How about bringing home GIANTmicrobes that wont make the kids sick, nor keep them from school.

Trim your tree with Common Cold, Brain Cell, Kissing Disease, E. coli and the limited edition Red Amoeba, festively adorned with a Santa hat, candy cane, mistletoe, reindeer antlers, and winter scarf.

Once I got this and opened it, all I could think was Hunter is going to love this. What a great way to teach kids and make it a fun learning process.

These can be hung from the tree as they are attached with a gold hanging piece. I think I might hang them from our tree and have Hunter find them. They are very soft and do have small pieces. I’ve pulled on them and nothing has come off but I would not recommended for a very small child.

They also carry two other designs with different microbes inside.

Salonpas Pain Patches-Review and Giveaway- Ended

Between work and school I sit at my desk for a good 9 to 12 hours a day. Lower back pain is nothing new so most nights I sit in a warm bath to relieve all the tension that has built up for the day, and yet my back still aches when I go to bed. When I was offered a review for Salonpas I have to admit I was a little thrilled. They sent me three different types.

The SalonPas Pain Relief contains 3% Menthol and 10% Methyl Salicylate and comes in a pack of 5. They are light and flexible and I found these to work great when my hand cramps due to breaking all of my metacarpals at work a few years ago. The patch gets pretty cold and feels relaxing. The smell is not so bad from the menthol, wish I would have thought about using one of these when I was sick and could not breathe I’m sure it would have

Salonpas also makes patched for Arthritis Pain Patch that contains the same ingredients just markets them different. I could not find any difference to the pain relief patches.


My favorite one was the Salonpas Pain Relieving Gel-Patch HOT. When I first put one on I just about jumped out of my seat due to the gel being so cold. After a few minutes it started heating up and I could not feel any aches or pains and I was able to work longer without the need to keep getting up. They are air activated so if you put anything heavy on over them they will not heat up as much. They contain 1.25% methanol so the smell was a bit stronger, but pro’s outweighed the con’s for me.


Here’s your chance to enter to win. One winner will receive:

Salonpas Pain Relief Patches (5 pack)

Salonpas Arthritis Pain Patches (5 pack)

Salonpas Pain Relieving Gel-Patch Hot (6 pack)
