DINO BARS Review - Organic All-Natural Fruit Bars for Kids

When I heard about DINO BARS I knew I wanted to share them with my niece and nephew! My brother and sister-in-law like to give the kids healthier treats, so I figured these would be a great fit for them.

*Disclaimer: This product was sent to See, Shop, Love! in exchange for an honest review.

DINO BARS are made with all-natural, organic, and healthy ingredients. They have no artificial flavors, preservatives, or refined sugar. They are nut free as well, except for coconut oil, which is not technically a tree nut or a major food allergen (even though it is classified as such by the FDA). All of the bars are certified USDA organic.

I knew that the bright packaging and cute dinosaurs would be a hit with the kids regardless. The bars come in four flavors: Mango Pear Banana, Blueberry Pear Banana, Strawberry Pear Banana, and Sweet Potato Raspberry.

As you can see, the ingredient list is minimal with plenty of certified organic items. Lots of fruits with low calories and fat and an appropriate carbohydrate count for a fruit-based food.

The one thing I wasn't sure about was the edible wrapping. I didn't mind it, but I'm an adult. I wasn't sure if the kids would find it strange or not.

The edible paper wrapped around each DINO BAR is made with potato starch, water, and olive oil. It's tasteless and is a unique way to keep your child's (or yours!) hands clean while eating the bar. It's such an ingenious addition to a great product!

Turns out, the edible paper wasn't a problem at all. Both my niece (one year old) and nephew (three years old) dug right into the bars without even noticing the paper. They both loved the Mango flavor the best! I didn't take any photos of them to respect their privacy, but I promise these bars got a great review. Both said they were very yummy!

  • Learn more about DINO BARS and purchase at their website
    • The bars will soon be available on Amazon, too

Bottom Line: The DINO BARS are so cute and a great snack for kids and adults alike! The edible paper makes them mess-free, too. I highly recommend these bars.

Elims Melt-Away Teeth Whitening Masks

Elims is a sustainable oral care brand that creates products with less plastic waste than most brands with 100 percent sustainable packaging.

 *Disclaimer: This product was sent to See, Shop, Love! in exchange for an honest review.

Elims has toothpaste and whitening products. I tried their Magic Melt-Away Teeth Whitening Masks, which brighten your teeth up to seven shades lighter in 14 days. The masks are vegan and melt away on your teeth when activated.

I used the masks for two weeks as instructed, and leftover masks can be used on a weekly basis to keep teeth looking bright. To be completely honest, I didn't notice a huge change in my teeth, but I also didn't have a ton of staining to begin with.

What I like best about these teeth whitening masks is the packaging. Although the outer packet still needs to be discarded (not much you can do to help that), I like that there is less waste with the strip itself. All you have to do is wet your teeth with your tongue and then apply. The mask adheres to your teeth and then melts away. I left these on for 20 minutes and rinsed with water and brushed away excess mask, just like I would with other strips.

Here's me and my big forehead with the strips on my upper and lower teeth! You can see that they fit snugly against the teeth.

Bottom Line: If you're looking for a sustainable brand of oral care products, Elims does an excellent job of creating products that deliver on their promises without extra packaging waste!

Musely Skincare Review and Coupon

The FaceRx program from Musely sends prescription skincare right to your door. They'll customize a routine specifically to treat your needs!

*Disclaimer: This product was purchased by See, Shop, Love! at a discounted price in exchange for an honest review. Post contains referral drinks.

Musely's FaceRx program makes prescription skincare accessible to everyone. You'll have access to an online dermatologist, personal pharmacist, personalized medication, and an eNurse in the My Musely mobile app.

Musely has products to treat dark spots, melasma, wrinkles, texture, and enlarged pores on the face and body.

When you create your account, you'll fill out a survey that tells Musely your skincare needs and concerns. You'll also upload three photos of your face: forward facing and both sides. After completing the survey, Musely will recommend the products that will best suit your skin. You can then sign up for a one-time purchase or subscription and a consultation with their dermatologist. The consultation costs $20 on top of the cost of the product(s).

I received the Anti-Aging Night Cream for dull skin and wrinkles. I'm in my 30s now, so focusing on anti-aging is a must. Even if you're in your 20s I recommend starting an anti-aging regimen since it's never too early for preventive care!

The shipment comes with information on the free Musely mobile app, which you can use to set reminders to use your products and consult with an eNurse. There's also information about the products and pharmacy.

The Anti-Aging Night Cream has 0.05 percent Tretinoin cream and the instructions say to apply a pea-sized amount at night. Other ingredients include hyaluronic acid and niacinamide to treat wrinkles and fade sun damage. Tretinoin helps turn over skin cells and boost collagen production, niacinamide is a hydrating skin brightener that also shrinks pores, and hyaluronic acid reduces visibility of fine lines and wrinkles and helps skin retain moisture.

The tretinoin cream provides similar results to retinol cream; however, this particular cream does not have retinol in it. I haven't had great results with retinol, it's a bit too harsh on my skin, but the tretinoin hasn't caused any of the standard "purge" period that retinol sometimes does. This cream is the best cream for wrinkles!
