I am an Influenster Dr Teal’s Top 50 Brand Badge Prize Winner!

Hello guys!  I’m so excited today to share with you what I just received in the mail a couple days ago! (it’s now been a month ago but the excitement is still there lol)  As you know from my previous blog posts, I’m a member of Influenster.  In my Cheers VoxBox which I received back in February, one of the items included was a bag of Dr Teal’s Epsom Salts.  For each item in my VoxBox I had to do different activities like: post a photo to Instagram with the product in the photo, make a post on Facebook, make a video, etc.  If you complete all of the required activities for each of the products, you get entered into the contests for a chance to win a prize pack from one of the brands.  So, I completed all of the activities for each of the products of course because who doesn’t love a chance to win stuff?

About a month ago or so I got an email from Influenster telling me that I won the Dr Teal’s Brand Badge Top 50 prize pack!  I’m not certain, but I think this means I was one of 50 people chosen and that is pretty freakin’ awesome odds considering how many people received this VoxBox.  Of course I was really excited and it said it would be here in a few weeks so I waited to find out what would be in this prize pack (because they don’t always tell you ahead of time, makes it more fun that way).

As I mentioned earlier, I received my prize pack box in the mail on Thursday.  🙂  Because it is so close to my birthday (June 1st), I was thinking maybe this was a birthday present. Somehow I didn’t register that this could be my prize pack.  It was also really heavy so that got me more excited to see what was inside the box!  I hurriedly opened it with the help of my boyfriend because I couldn’t wait to see what was inside!

Here’s what was inside:

IMG_20160528_102452Prior to receiving this box, I had only tried the Epsom salt, so I’m very happy to have all of these products.  And, they’ll last me a long time since they are gigantic!


Dr Teal’s Foaming Bath Super Moisturizer Avocado Oil smells amazing and is not only made with Avocado Oil of course, but it also has Orange Peel in it.

20160528_101725Dr Teal’s Ultra Moisturizing Body Wash Soothe & Sleep with Lavender is perfect when you want to have a relaxing night in or after a long day and you want to settle down before bed.  It’s made with Aloe Vera, Shea Butter, Vitamin E, Epsom Salt, Lavender and Tea Tree Oil. The Lavender scent whisked me away and made me feel like I was at the spa.

20160528_101741Dr Teal’s Pure Epsom Salt Soaking Solution Detoxify & Energize with Ginger and Clay. It’s made with Ginger Root Oil, Lemon Peel Oil and Clay.  Naturally removes your body’s built-up toxins, helps increase natural energy levels, and it eases aches and muscle pains. You can use this in your bathtub to detoxify your body, to soothe muscles and body pains or to relieve sprains and stings.

Here’s how:

-Detoxify your body:  Pour at least 2 cups of Dr Teal’s Epsom Salt under warm, running bath water.  Soak for 20 minutes and let the rich minerals absorb through the skin, offering relief to sore muscles.

-Soothe muscles and body pains:  Create a soothing paste by dissolving a handful of Dr Teal’s Epsom Salt into a cup of hot water and cool the solution in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes. Clean the skin before applying the paste to the affected area.

-Relieve sprains and stings:  Add 1 cup of Dr Teal’s Epsom Salt to 1 quart of warm water. Immerse a wash cloth in the solution, then wring out excess water. Apply the warm wash cloth to the affected area until the wash cloth is no longer warm. Repeat two to three times to help reduce pain and swelling.

I love that this has many uses!  I used this in my foot spa and I enjoyed how it felt on my feet.  It’s such a great way to relax!

20160528_101750Dr Teal’s Pure Epsom Salt Soaking Solution Comfort & Calm with Chamomile. Calms your mind and comforts your body and eases aches and muscle pains.  It’s made with Chamomile Flower Oil.  Just like the Detoxify & Energize Epsom Salt above, you can use this for all of the same purposes.

I tried this one out also and I enjoyed the chamomile and lemon scent and found it to be a relaxing treat for my feet!

I’m happy that Dr Teal’s was introduced into my life through Influenster because their products are great for so many things and I love being able to try new products.  If you would like an opportunity to try new products or win prize packs like this one, click on the green Influenster button on the right-hand side of the main page of my blog.

Take care until next time,
