Allure Beauty Box Review


It's no secret...I love subscription boxes. Snail mail is the best, especially when you receive a package filled with surprises. It's like having a birthday every month! Honestly, checking the mailbox is one chore I really enjoy, is checking the mailbox a chore? Anyway back to subscription boxes... I have tried a few. Recently I decided to check out the Allure Beauty Box after discontinuing another beauty box subscription. Allure Beauty Box includes at least 5 deluxe sized products that have been chosen by the editors of Allure magazine. The box is $15 a month  but contains a value of at least $50 in products and you can cancel at any time. Beauty boxes are a great way to learn about, and try out some new products without paying retail price on something, and then figuring out the product is not what you thought.  

My first Allure Beauty Box arrived in August and contained a total of 8 products. New members receive a welcome gift. My welcome gift was a Mally Eye Shadow Stick in Autumn Shimmer. Retail price for this item is $25 so I already made my money back and some! The other 7 items included:

  •  Full size Pixi Rose Oil Blend Nourishing Face Oil valued at $24. 
  •  Full size Floss Quarts Pressed Highlighter valued at $20.
  •  Deluxe sample size of Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Serum full size sells for $84. This is a Korean line of skincare and makeup and their products are not cheap! The deluxe sample I receive had about 2 weeks of serum in it. The perfect amount to find out if you indeed like the product or not. I really liked this serum. It goes on like an oil but absorbs quickly into your skin and does not leave an oily residue. Instead it leaves your skin feeling smooth and soft. 
  •  Full size Erno Lazlo Exfoliate and Detox Face Bar valued at $23. This deep sea mud cleansing bar is sitting on my bathroom counter. I have been using it daily. It does not lather up and leaves a little bit of a black mess in my sink. It also stings, bad, if you get it in your eyes...careful. It's just okay, I am not really a fan of face cleansing bars. 
  •  Sample size H2O+ Hydration Sensitive Gel Cream Moisturizer full size sells for $42. I wouldn't consider this one a deluxe sample. It's pretty small and while I haven't tried it yet, it looks about no more than a weeks worth. 
  •  Deluxe sample size of Whish Botanical Primer full size sells for $44. This is a larger sample size that I think will get quite a few uses when I finally give it a try. 
  •  1 Looks and Meii  Brightening Lift Up Perfect Fit Mask valued at $3. My daughter Penelope is loving sheet masks right now so I gifted this one to her. 
Ok now for the tally....let me get out my calculator. Excluding sample sizes and including my new member gift. The total value of my Allure Beauty Box is $70! Not bad for only $15. I still haven't decided if I like this subscription box or not. I have another box that should be arriving any day now. I will share it with you and we can decide together. If you would like to check it out for yourself you can subscribe here

Mango Publishing Books Review

It's been a few months since I last posted, right before we were put on stay at home orders. So how have I been spending my time? I've been getting projects done around the house, cooking and cleaning a lot more, spending more time with the family and of course doing a lot more reading. I love to read but it is sometimes hard to find the time when you are working all day and exhausted by the time you manage to get home. So, I have been finishing up partially read books and reading ones that had been sitting on my bookcase waiting to be opened. Reading is a great way to relax and escape from all the craziness that has been going on lately. So when I was contacted by Mango Publishing and asked if I would like to check out a few of their titles, of course I said yes. One can never have to many books.   

Your Brain on Facts Things You Didn't Know, Things You Thought You knew, and Things You Never knew You Never Knew by Moxie LaBouche is entertaining and brainy. This book is full of facts and trivia from movies to medicine and everything in between. I consider myself a trivia buff, I often surprise my husband by knowing stuff he assumes I couldn't possibly know. My brain has a way of retaining information I've heard, seen or read along the way and I am always eager to learn more. This is my kind of book. Believe it or not many of the things I read about in this book I already knew, but I did acquire some fascinating new knowledge to impress during my next dinner party. For instance did you know that cat's can't taste sweet? Huh? Why does my cat Merlin always try to steal my ice cream than? There is a whole story about pharmaceuticals and antifreeze behind this fact. Get a copy and read for yourself! 

Anxious Art A Creativity Journal to Help Calm You by Elina Diaz and Yaddrya Peralta is a book to help you de-stress. It's part journal, part sketch book and all fun. I decided to gift this one to my tween daughter. Although kids tend to hide it a little better, they do feel stress. With school shutting down, and not being able to spend time with her friends, and being around mom 24/7, she's gotta be going nuts! This book has silly tasks like doodling a snail going on a trip to more thoughtful tasks like starting a breathing journal to share thoughts and ideas as you find your calm.  

The Crafty Gardener Inspired Ideas and DIY Crafts from Your Own Backyard by Becca Anderson has some great ideas to help you get crafty. I know a lot of people are finding more time to show their creative side since we have been at home. Sewing, baking and gardening have made a comeback and this book offers helpful gardening tips and recipes to make the most of your new hobby. 

Check out this rosemary ring my husband made using rosemary and pink peppercorns grown in our front yard. You can also find some things to make and gift or even sell for some extra spending money, for more books! 

You can find these titles and more from Mango Publishing on Amazon or Bookshop.

Sunless Tanning Towelettes Review

Summer is here! Time to pack up those layers and and pull out some lighter tops, flowy dresses and slip on some sandals. And since it is 2019 we all know the dangers of too much sun bathing, so go ahead and lather on that sunscreen too! Wait! How am I going to get that sun-kissed skin to go with my cute summer dresses you ask. I have the perfect solution, Comodynes Sunless Tanning Towlettes

These totally convenient and safe self-tanning wipes will leave your skin summer ready in less than 3 hours and without any help from those pesky UV rays. Sold in packs of 8 and individually wrapped so they are ready to toss into your purse, luggage or beach bag for some quick color. 

So I have to admit I don't wear dresses very often, in fact my legs are a totally different color than the rest of my body, and since I am not a fan of sitting out in the sun I usually have to live with the unsightly color difference when I do decide to show some leg. I was sent samples of these self-tanning towelettes for review and was pretty excited to try them out. You simply apply the tanning towelette in a circular motion starting from your feet and working your way up. I only used from my ankles up since my feet are already pretty tan. You wait about 10 minutes before dressing and your skin will gradually begin to reveal a faux glow. At first I only saw a slight difference but a few hours later I noticed my legs definitely looked more tan. It was that easy! I was also afraid that the towelette would leave my hands looking weirdly orange but there was no trace at all. Another bonus with these towelettes, they leave your skin feeling super soft. It is recommended to use a towelette every 3 to 4 days to keep up that sunbathed look. These also come in a intensive and fast bronzing option if you are are really looking for that deep tan. 

These are available online at and

Carmel-by-the-Sea Vacation and Hofsas House Review

So a couple of weeks ago I posted about how I and my family had been invited to visit the quaint town of Carmel-by-the-Sea and stay at Hofsas House Hotel. Well, we did and guess what?! It was amazing! First I need to tell you about the charming place that is Carmel-by-the Sea. I grew up in southern California however, I lived in San Francisco for a few years during my late teens, early twenties. Despite San Francisco only being about two hours away from Carmel I never visited, but now that I have I can't imagine why no one ever mentioned it to me. It is the most adorable seaside town located in Monterey County. A peaceful hamlet that is picturesque and clean and reminds me of a fairytale village. 


It has numerous restaurants, art galleries and shops all in close walking distance. It is also super dog friendly and I saw so many locals walking the uneven paved streets with their four legged companions. More on that later... Many of the homes in the area are cute cottages and Tudor style that remind me of something out of Hansel & Gretel. In fact, the houses don't even have addresses instead they have cute names like Dream Catcher or Robins Nest. They have a local post office where you can stroll to and pick up your mail, so who needs an address, right? I also learned that they do  not allow chain restaurants because they want to keep that small town vibe going. I love this! Another fun fact is that as of 1963 it is actually illegal to to wear high heels. What?! That's right a municipal code bans shoes with heels taller than 2 inches or with a base of of less than 1 square inch. This law was put into place to protect the city from lawsuits due to the irregular pavement and tree roots that have grown through the sidewalk. Don't worry though, local police do  not enforce the law, however if you want to be on the safe side you can actually visit city hall and get a permit to wear said high heels. I really wanted to get a permit as a souvenir however city hall is closed on the weekends. One more thing you may not know about Carmel-by-the-sea, from 1986-1988 Clint Eastwood was mayor. Did that make your day? 

Now there are several places to stay when visiting Carmel-by-the-sea but my suggestion for you would be to stay at the Hofsas House Hotel


This Family run Bavarian inspired hotel fits Carmel-by-the-Sea's setting perfectly. Built by Donna Hofsas and her then husband in 1957 it is now run by her granddaughter Carrie Theis. Today they are celebrating 70 years of hospitality. During your stay be sure and have Carrie share the hotels history with you. She is absolutely lovely and you can tell she is proud of the grand accomplishment that is Hofsas House. The room we stayed in was one of the larger ones 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and a wood burning fire place. All the rooms have these cute dutch doors. 

Our room had a balcony and ocean view ideal for enjoying Carmel's beautiful sunsets. 

I loved the traditional old world vibe of the room and it was really comfy. We were greeted with this fabulous gift. 

One of their additional add-ons that can be added to your room when booking. This was their Champagne & Cheese Pairing complete with champagne from a local winery and cheese from the local cheese shop. Yummy! As you can see they also gifted us with a Frisbee to take home to our pups. The hotel is also dog friendly however our dogs are the size of mini horses and they would have never fit in the car up. In addition to the wonderful offerings that can be added to your room Hofsas House also has special packages available; The Artsy Package, The Wine and Chocolate Package, The Tail Wagging Package and a Cinq Mondes Spa Package. Inquire about them when you are booking your stay. Amenities include on and off street parking, on-site meeting room, free wireless and a heated pool. My daughter loved taking advantage of the heated pool because although the local beaches are picturesque, the water sure is awfully cold. 

They also have a complimentary continental breakfast complete with pastries and muffins from the local bakery, yogurt and coffee and juice. Delicious! 

We were also invited to visit a local gem, Lugano Swiss Bistro. Here, you can find authentic Swiss food in a rustic setting. 

Of course we had to partake in some fondue! Just an FYI when you are planning your trip, Lugano's is closed on Mondays, and the 4 Course Fondue Dinner is the way to go. 

Our stay was fabulous and I truly want to think owner Carrie for being so gracious and all the staff at Hofsas House for the world class hospitality. To the people of Carmel-by-the-Sea, I envy you and absolutely want to live in your beautiful oasis. 

I was provided a complimentary stay at the above mentioned hotel by the owner or PR company representing them.  All opinions expressed in this review are my own and not influenced in any way by  anyone.

Biore Facial Masks Review

A few months back I was introduced to the New Biore Blue Agave and Baking Soda Collection. The collection includes a Pore Cleanser, Instant Warming Clay Mask and a Nourishing Whipped Detox Mask. These products are meant to not only provide a deep clean but nourish the skin with the help of blue agave and baking soda. While the baking soda cleanses the blue agave provides skin conditioning making the perfect duo. These are especially nice for those of us with combination skin that need some exfoliation and deep cleaning while also moisturizing any dry patches on the face. 

I was sent both masks in the collection for my review. 

The Instant Clay Warming Mask is sold as 4 individual packets. It is designed to open pores and cleanse them removing dirt and grime and excess oil. Once the mask becomes activated it will start to warm up. You simply wet face, massage mask on to face for about a minute. It wills start to activate and warm up as you massage. Then simply rinse with warm water. This mask does not harden or dry up and is easily washed away. It leaves your skin feeling clean and smooth. I like the warming sensation and also like that you do not need to leave it on for to long and still get maximum results. 

The Whipped Nourishing Detox Mask is used for a deeper clean and unclogging those pores. It is sold in a 4 oz. tube and also contains menthol for a tingly clean. To use this one you want to wet your face and then lightly rub onto skin avoiding the area around your eyes. Leave on for 3-5 minutes and then rinse with warm water. This mask does dry a little on the face and is a litter tougher to remove. I used a warm washcloth to get it completely off. I like the tingly sensation it provides and it left my skin feeling refreshed. 

I know there is a lot of us out there that just love facial masks. I would definitely give these a go! They can be purchased at food, drug and mass merchant stores. Check out Biore online to learn more about these and other Biore products.

Rebels Refinery 2- in-1 Body Wash and Shampoo Review

In case you missed it, you can check out my previous Rebels Refinery post here. Today, I am going to share the latest Rebels Refinery product I was sent for review, their 2-in-1 Body Wash and Shampoo. I decided to gift this to my husband and get his input. He works a 3 week hitch in Alaska and shares a bathroom with other oilfield workers so he doesn't have a lot of room to for toiletries, yes roughnecks use toiletries, at least mine does. I figured this would be a nice convenient addition to his Dopp Kit. The first thing he said when I asked him what he thought about the 2-in-1 Body Wash and Shampoo was that it smelled really good. I asked him what it smelled like, his response was "like a man". Interesting, the Rebels Refinery website states that you will smell fantastic after using this stuff, according to my husband they are right. My husband also has sensitive skin that tends to be irritated easily and Rebels Refinery products which are made with natural ingredients and free of the harmful ones are perfect. While Rebels Refinery are not solely products for men, their logo reads Premium Natural Skin Care For Humans, they do carry products specifically for men and their products seem to lean towards a male fan base. 

Fathers day is right around the corner and this as well as other Rebels Refinery products would make a great gift for the man in your life. 

In fact, this Essential Rebels Kit sells for only $40 and would up any mans grooming game. Check out more of their products online. You can also find them at Target stores nationwide.

Mimzi by Marguerite Germaine Perfume Review

Dr. Marguerite Germaine is a board certified dermatologist and creator of a variety of skincare products. Practicing out of Charleston, South Carolina, she has been voted best dermatologist for 13 consecutive years. The latest addition to her accomplishments is the fragrance Mimzi by Marguerite Germaine, created in celebration of her mother, affectionately known as "Mimzi".  

The lovely 1.7 fl.oz. bottle is filled with a scent that combines citrus and floral. 

Top Notes: Citrus-floral, soft lemon, sweet orange, currant, watery, airy, fresh
Middle or Heart Notes:   tuberose, jasmine, grassy, light bitter orange
Base Notes:  sandalwood, light cedar, jasmine

To be honest I do not wear Perfume very often because I am very particular about what I like. I am not a fan of overly floral scents or anything too woods-y. I tend to stick to light airy scents with a touch of sweetness. However, I am really enjoying this perfume. It's floral notes are very light, the citrus notes smell of lemon. It smells wonderful and for some reason it makes me think of a fairy garden. Dr. Germaine did a great job honoring her mother with this enchanting perfume. You can purchase your bottle by visiting Germaine Dermatology online.

Curél Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer Itch Defense Lotion Review

Hey everyone! Welcome to my debut post on Girly Girl Giveaways! I was given the opportunity to review a lotion from Curél and I’m so excited about it. Here’s a little back story… When I was pregnant with my first back in 2013, my belly was getting itchier and itchier as my belly grew and grew. I reached out to my fellow mom group and asked how to combat the itchiness of my growing belly. A ton of moms recommended Curél Itch Defense. Let me tell you, this lotion saved my sanity when I was pregnant! I was going nuts trying to get the itch away with regular lotions and trying not to scratch but nothing was working. This lotion immediately calms itchiness and even redness! The consistency is great because it’s not greasy and not too slick like other lotions can be. It has a very slight fresh smell as you apply it but it goes away within a minute or so. I love the fact that the lotion absorbs into my skin and doesn’t add a gross film on top of my skin like some other lotions do. 

Now, Curél has a new lotion called Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer Itch Defense. It’s a mouthful but basically, you use it on wet skin right out of the shower so it’s able to penetrate better into your skin. I use it right after the shower to combat itchiness and dry skin all day. This has been so helpful during the winter when my skin dries out!

You can buy it from Walmart, Target, Amazon, and other local retailers. It’s a great price for this single mama and one 20 oz bottle of the original Itch Defense lotion lasted me through my whole first pregnancy and into my second!

If any of you have tried it out before let me know what you think in the comments below!

CBD Living : product review and giveaway!

My experience with using CBD Living products these past few weeks has been a pleasant surprise. Although I am excited about, and eager to try, natural ways of self-care, my often aching body seems to blur my hopes and bring the reality on very quickly. Eating a vegan diet and exercising regularly have been my tried and true methods of keeping inflammation at bay, but the pain is always lingering. I know pain exists and we all experience it, but as I awaited my package from CBD Living I found myself in high hopes for a product that could target my back and joint pain. With those high hopes came all the doubts, so I prepared myself for a let down. I figured, if nothing else, I can say that I had tried CBD as a means to relieve pain and could move on to find other solutions.

My package arrived promptly and I was excited to pull out three beautifully packaged products. First, a bar of amber bergamot  CBD Living soap, weighing 4.5 oz and containing 60mg of CBD. Next, a coconut lime bath bomb, also containing 60mg of CBD. Last, the CBD Living Daily Lotion in Lavender.

Before I dove into these products to ease my aching back, I took some time to research the product a little more thoroughly. I am a child care professional, so had to be sure that these products do not offer any sort of "head change", which they do not. CBD is not psychoactive.  I also wanted to be sure that none of their products are tested on animals, which I happily found they are not! While doing my investigating, I found an enthralling information page on that explains their nanotechnology that allows for the molecules in the CBD to be absorbed into the body more effectively. Also, the company is based in Corona, Ca, practically next door to my hometown of Wildomar, so on I went to try these bad boys out.

I first tried the lotion, just to see. I applied a dab on my lower back and massaged it to cover the entire area I was feeling pain. The lotion itself it wonderful, and I would absolutely use it even without its superpowers. The smell is fresh, the lotion glides on smoothly and there is no sticky or cakey residue left over. I am known to just bi pass lotion all together to avoid the swampy way it makes me feel, especially while working out or hiking. After applying the lotion, I went about my day and began to get dressed for my morning hike. About five-ten minutes after applying the lotion, I realized that my lower back had stopped shooting pain. I was able to bend and tie my boots without taking the standard position of a 95 year old woman. I bent down to touch my toes just to be sure and, yep!, I could do it without twitching in pain. I chalked it up as a fluke or a coincidence and went about my day. The next morning I was feeling sore through my whole body, and my back was more stiff than usual (I had packed my backpack with 28 pounds of weight and crushed 10 miles of hills on the Santa Rosa Plateau) I decided to try the lotion once again. To my surprise, the areas where I applied the lotion were noticeably more at ease than other areas of my body. I used the product as a spot treatment over the next week and to my pleasant surprise, IT WAS WORKING! I now use it almost daily, for those times when my muscles are sore from use, or when my body is sore from its fight against Lyme disease.

As I realized the lotion was actually working, I chose to wait to use the bath bomb for an exceptionally rough day on my body. On Tuesday, after a very ambitious leg day at the gym and a long training hike for the books, I started my day in the bath, which I NEVER do. I have never tried a bath bomb (I know) and now I realize what all the hype is about! There is something very satisfying about the fizzing, something meditative. My entire bathroom filled with this sweet but natural smell of coconut and lime and my mind slowed and my body relaxed. I soaked for about 10 minutes (I have NO patience, even when content) and honestly felt like I was floating on air. My entire body was less tense and my muscles were relaxed and at ease. I also smelt amazing and felt very proud of myself for my self-care type action. I do not often take time to just be still (unless I am on the trail).
The bar of soap is now a staple in my life. I will need to order one however, because my dad commandeered mine. The soap itself is fantastic, it smells super fresh and delicious and it lathers like a champ, which I, and apparently my dad, really appreciate in a soap. He has rheumatoid arthritis and uses the soap daily on his hands. He gave me the honest feedback that he isn't sure if its the CBD in the soap and lotion or the fact that he is massaging his hands so much because of the great lather and yummy scent, but his hands do feel better!

I am such a cynic however, that I've got to share this silly truth. Before I sat down to write this review, I tried the lotion one more time, just to be sure. I was cramping in my calf this morning and thought, "this would be a good test." I have experienced the pain relief for days on end, and yet for whatever reason, my brain does not want me to believe I have found a product that actually works. Happy to report my calf is cramp free as I finish this up.

CBD Living has been an awesome experience and I am so happy to announce that they have been kind and cool enough to host a give away with us!! I will announce a winner in ONE WEEK - Sunday, April 7, 2019.

Fusion Diet Systems Natural Pea Protein with Whole Grain Rice

As I begin training to hike to the top of Mt. Whitney this summer, my gym routine has gotten a bit harder and much more consistent. I try a new vegan protein product every few weeks. I know they are unnecessary to be a powerful and healthy vegan athlete, but I am lazy about my food. I also hate eating in the mornings. The option to drink my nutrients is very appealing to me for these very reasons. I usually buy my shakes from Aldi's or Grocery Outlet, as they often switch out their brands so I get to try new products all the time, and their products are deeply discounted (such a huge plus for this early childcare teacher). 

I found this Fusion Diet Systems gem last week and have played with my shakes all week, working on what I love the best. I have found that hot coffee, a handful of ice, a splash of plant milk and two big ol scoops of the powder makes for an amazing and fudgey mocha! It is rich in chocolate flavor and depending on the amount of liquid you add, you can prepare a very fluid and easy to chug chocolate protein drink, or a thick and scoop-able chocolate shake with some ice and less liquid. Another bonus I found by mistake.... pudding! The first day I tried this I blended two scoops of powder with about 1 cup of Ripple Chocolate Pea Milk. I couldn't drink it because it was so thick! I scooped some with a spoon and was instantly reminded of chocolate pudding. I threw my shake in the fridge for the day and came home to a velvety, cool chocolate pudding packed with protein for dessert. 

I love the versatility of this product. I also love that it is marked VEGAN with pride across the front of the packaging. With 25 grams of protein and only 150 calories, I have definitely found myself a delicious post-gym meal that will help me reach my hiking and backpacking goals. This Pea Protein shake is also enriched with Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) to help promote healthy muscle growth and brain function, which is a concern many people approach  me with when I even mention Veganism. Finding a product like this makes my heart feel super happy!

Bonus:  a portion of all sales is donated to charity.

BratoxINSTA by Brazilian Skin

Brazilian Skin are the makers of age defying products formulated with ingredients grown deep in the Amazon rainforest. Combing the natural wonders of the Amazon and the miracle of science they have developed a skincare line to help combat the signs of aging. You can read more about the ingredients used to make this skincare, that is free of harmful chemicals and safe for all skin types, here

The Brazilian Facelift Kit contains 3 products to nourish, restore and revitalize your skin. These include Bratoxin that is scientifically proven to hydrate, smooth and increase your skin's elasticity. Acai Triple Stem Cell Mask that uses the latest stem cell technology to lock in moisture and absorb antioxidants while you sleep. Bratonista a fast acting cream that eliminates the appearance of puffiness, sagging or crow's feet in an instant. 

I received a tube of Bratoxinsta for review. Although this looks like an inject-able syringe don't worry, it it's not. No need to inject yourself with needles to add some youthfulness to your face.  With Bratoxinsta you can smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and de-puff those eyes in 60 seconds or less. Not only will this tube give you instant results but the powerful combination of stem cell, antioxidants, and peptides will help to improve long term appearance. It can be used under your eyes to eliminate puffiness, around your eyes to tighten and erase those crow's feet, or on your forehead and mouth area to hide those lines. 

Although those dreaded wrinkles and crow's feet have not paid visit to my face yet, I am hoping that by using this cream around my eyes I can prolong their absence a little while longer. I just use a small amount around my eyes and immediately feel my skin tightening. I tested it out on my mom who looks great at her age but has developed puffiness under her eyes. We were impressed at how much it tightened the area under her eyes making them appear less puffy. Her face looked even more youthful and like she had a long restful nights sleep. Unfortunately, my mom is camera shy and she would not allow me to photograph the evidence. 

Brazilian Skin has a 60 day money back guarantee on their products. They are that sure you will be impressed so why not give them a try!

Evanger's Review

In just a couple of weeks my sister will be picking up her new addition to her family, a chocolate Lab puppy. This is her first dog so she has been researching like crazy, and stocking up on all the puppy essentials. Just the other day she texted me to inquire about high quality dog foods, and of course I had to share all about my pet's favorite food, Evanger's.

Evanger's produces food for cats and dogs filled with top quality ingredients made in the USA. In fact their pet food contains human grade ingredients like fresh salmon, liver, whole sardines, chicken, hunks of beef and fresh produce. Their ingredients are 90% sourced within 50 miles and 10% sourced from US farms every day. They contain no soy, corn, wheat, artificial ingredients, preservatives, harmful additives or by-products. With balanced meals for all life stages, ages, and breeds and specially formulated for optimum nutrition you can be sure your four legged family member is eating great. 

No kidding! Check out the ingredients on one of their classic cans of dog food. 

Beef, Water Sufficient for Processing, Liver, Guar Gum

Compare this to many of the other store bought brands that contain a long list of ingredients. Evanger's pet food is simple and wholesome. Meats and produce that is hand packed and never frozen. 

Our dogs Relic and Timber love the stuff. 

Aside from fresh canned foods they also have a line of dry foods. Evanger's version of kibble semi-moist dehydrated food that has been roughly ground and mixed. It is air dried at low temperatures to retain nutrients, enzymes and flavor. 

So, I have passed along some coupons to my sister so she can stock up on some doggy food and I can't wait to meet her new pooch.
