Prevail Quilted Cotton Adult Disposable Large (12″ x 8″) Washcloths with Lotion 48 CT


These are very thin and not what I’d use for total body cleansing (No Rinse is the nice thick wipe for that). These will do for minor touch-ups at the toilet or cleaning our hands, although my boyfriend does not like the lotiony feel of them (I don’t mind it). These do a slightly better job of cleaning than baby wipes but not much. Would not repurchase.

Sun Bum Continuous Spray Sunscreen (Sports) SPF 70 6 ounce


I love the SPF 70 strength. I haven’t tried the others. This is great for those times I don’t feel like rubbing in lotion. There’s no evidence of sun exposure, even after being out gardening for hours. I’m one who doesn’t want any sun to get through, and this achieves that for me. Plus, I’m very vain and this doesn’t make me feel icky/sticky or look slippery. Thanks!

Excellent for Allergies!

My doctor explained how Vitamin A eliminated his allergies. This product is a fantastic solution to allergies in a dry supplement. I didn’t want oily or fishy, so this is perfect!

I used to suffer from terrible seasonal allergies, particularly to pollen, dust, grass, and trees. I’m also allergic to cats and dogs, and considering that I have four cats and love to be around dogs, I had no choice but to get rid of the allergies. Now I take Vitamin A instead of allergy meds. I’ve used Allegra, Claritin, Zyrtec, Zycam, and a number of homeopathic remedies from Hyland’s and Similisan, and this particular Vitamin A trumps all. I wouldn’t want to be without it. Solgar also makes a great dry one. If Thorne isn’t available, that’s what I buy.

It’s also fabulous for my skin. For a skincare supplement, it’s hard to beat Vitamin A.

FYI, the cats I’m referring to are indoor only. I don’t know if I’d still react badly to cats tracking in allergens from the outdoors, but working out in the yard among all the usual triggers doesn’t affect me anymore, so I’m guessing it would be ok. We would never let our cats loose outside, allergies or not.
