Back to School Products for Everyone

My kids already went back to school in July. If you are like us, it’s hard to get back into the routine of things. There isn’t a whole lot of time to do everything in the morning, so we need products that help us out in feeling better, looking better and everywhere in between. Here are a few products I think you may like.

I take vitamins every day, and I would prefer my kids do as well. Colds, flue etc are inevitable but I try to do my best to help protect my kids from them. If they do get it, I hope it’s not as bad.

L’il Critters have a few different vitamins for children. Gummy Vites Complete feature 6 of the vitamins that your little ones need the most. I don’t like saying they taste like candy, as I don’t want my daughter to associate “medicine” with candy. I tried one and they do actually taste pretty good and my 4 year old loved them. We like to keep it simple and just refer to it as medicine.

  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin B-12
  • Vitamin B6
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin D
  • Vitamin E
Calcium and Vitamin D are very important in children and in adults. Even though the Gummy Vites Complete have D in it, sometimes we need just a little extra. L’il Critters knows that and has a separate option of Calcium & Vitamin D. Adding them together helps absorption and we all know how important it is to have a little extra bone support. One serving of these vitamins is the same as 5oz of milk!

Once our kids are out of the “little kid” phase, they don’t really want to be taking the kids vitamins, and really they shouldn’t. Vitafusion has a great. Please note that these supplements are meant for our older kids (16 and up).

Sleep, hair/nails, and of course our moods are a big thing for both boys and girls. We focus on girls and their nails and such, but boys are just as vulnerable. Vitafusion knows that and created a great line of products.

Beauty Sleep- well, the title says it all. Taking 2 gummies about a half hour to an hour before bedtime will help you. “One serving of these great-tasting gummies provides 3 mg of Melatonin to support sleep, sleep cycle regulation, and to help you awake refreshed*, and 400 IU Vitamin D to support bone, teeth, muscle and immune health. As parents we can take it as well, as I know I can use all the help I can get when it comes to sleep.    

Relaxed Mood- Theanine is known to help us relax. Vitafusion takes that and combines it with some Zinc. They infused with natural tropical flavorings, so it doesn’t taste bad at all. All you need are 2 a day!

Gorgeous Hair, Skin and Nails- This is a supplement that all teens can benefit from. You can 3 a day.
“One serving of these delicious gummy vitamins provides 2X the biotin, 4X the antioxidant vitamins C & E, and 12 essential nutrients to support luxurious hair, gorgeous skin and healthy nails.*† 5000 mcg Biotin 90 mg Vitamin C and 60 IU Vitamin E Infused with natural raspberry flavor Gluten free”


Mya’s school day starts at 7:15, ends at 3:10 and then she has sports practice until 5:30. With a schedule like that, time can’t be wasted. I remember using Nair when I was younger and it saved so much time. So when I showed her the creams and the wax strips she thought they were the coolest thing. I haven’t tried Nair in a few years, and I have to say they have gotten better over time.

Nair™ Nourish Shower Power™ with Japanese Cherry Blossom and Rice Bran Oil doesn’t smell like the Nair I remember. The Cherry Blossom helps it a ton. In under 10 minutes your legs will be silky smooth. Just use the sponge that comes with it and wipe the cream off. If you lose the sponge, just use a wet wash cloth. Mya has fallen in love with it as it's easy and saves time.

Nair™ Wax Ready-Strips. These strips are so easy to use. You don’t have to warm them up in the microwave or even in your hands. Just peel apart, place on the area you want and pull in the direction of the hair growth. That part is very important for it to work the best. For some you can have results last up to 8 weeks! Nair has ready strips for your legs & body as well as for your face & bikini. I highly recommend these products for your kids or even for yourself.

Deodorant is something we don’t really talk about, but is really important. I mentioned above that my daughter plays sports. Let’s be real, there is sweat involved. So for us and my husband, the clinical performance is definitely needed.

Mya prefers the MITCHUM CLINICAL™SOFT SOLID which have the following benefits:
  • Clinical Performance Formula™ for protection against wetness and odor
  • Maximum level of active ingredient to effectively combat wetness
Myself, I prefer the Mitchum Gel. It really just comes down to preference as there really isn’t a wrong choice.

  • Maximum wetness protection with the highest level of active ingredient
  • Keeps you smelling great for 48 hours
  • Quick-drying: no trace of messy white residue
  • Alcohol free

You can buy online from stores like Amazon, CVS or buy in the store like Walmart, Target and so many more. Check out their site to see a store near you that sells it.
I can’t talk about back to school products without talking about technology. If your kids have an iphone and need extra storage then you need to check this out.

Lexar now has a microSD reader that is specifically for an iPhone or iPad. You do need to download Lexar Mobile Manager app. Once that is done, you just put your microSD card in the reader and plug that into the phone. From there the app will start and you can add photos, music etc from your phone to the micro SD card or the other way around. You can also use Dropbox to manage files. This is such a time saver and a great way to carry extra storage with you all the time.
