I was asked recently to try out a sample of Capriclear Soothing Oil. The only ingredient in this spray-on moisturizer is fractionated coconut oil. I’ve learned so many good things about coconut oil in recent years that I loved the idea of trying it as a spray. Awhile back I tried out another spray-on moisturizer, and loved the convenience of the spray bottle, but found that it didn’t last long on my Ethiopian daughters’ very dry skin. In addition, one of my daughters is very sensitive to fragrances, and because of this she has almost given up on moisturizers.
This spray goes on very light and after being rubbed in, it absorbs nicely and lasts well. Several times I even used it in my girls’ hair, to add some shine and extra moisturizing. I liked the way it worked for that purpose too. The spray was billed as perfect for babies, due to it being only one ingredient and fragrance free. So after trying it at our house for a few days, I handed it off to my daughter to try with her baby, whose skin was a little broken out at the time. Amanda reported that it worked well for little Wilona and seemed very soothing.
I will be giving away a bottle of Capri Clear to one reader early next week. If you are interested in entering the drawing, comment below and tell me something interesting that is happening at your house this month.
As for us, we are chugging along with school, trying not to get too tired of it all. We have an ambitious schedule this year and I’m hoping we can keep up so we can have a long Christmas break like we usually do. The biggest two things on the list are high school Chemistry (Apologia) which I am hoping to complete in ONE year, AND an essay a month for everyone. Writing and editing can take lots of time, and Chem is very time consuming as well.
So far, the most exciting thing this month that has happened is that our 18 year old daughter Lidya was invited by her friend Henry to go to the homecoming dance at his school. We had great fun shopping for her dress (yet another score for thrift shopping!) and also adding a bit of bling to the dress. She and Henry had a very nice evening, first going to Outback for dinner with some friends (where an anonymous stranger paid for ALL their dinners) and then off to the dance. Such fun!
Writing is going well. I’ve got 7 out of 10 chapters pretty much pulled together. However, I keep thinking of more and more I need to write about! Hopefully I will have it all pulled together within the next month or so. I’d love to get it turned in early, but we’ll see.
I’m starting to keep my eyes open for fun Christmas ideas for my clan– with so many people to shop for, I always need to start thinking early. These days the grandbabies are the easiest to shop for, and the teens are more challenging.
Little baby Ali is getting bigger. Isn’t she sweet?
Looking forward to hearing what’s going on in your world!
