Dawn’s Top 10 First Year Product Picks


Now that a little time has past I thought it would be fun to share with you my top 10  favorite products that I have reviewed over the first year.  These products are all ones that I continue to buy and use today!  (Click on any title to be taken directly to their website)

FRS Healthy Energy

I love FRS Healthy Energy and continue to drink it every day.  It gives me so much energy and helps me recover so quickly from my workouts, that it’s become a must have for me.  During the times when I am out of it, I notice that I am much more tired in the afternoon and I don’t seem to have as much stamina in my workouts.  I drink the Low Cal Orange Concentrate each day and have  one of the FRS Pomegranate Chews before my workout.  I have tried the cans and the powdered drink, but the concentrate is the one that I like the best and it seems to work the best for me.  The chews I am able to pick up at my local Winn Dixie’s for $10.00 per bag and it lasts me for 30 days.

You can try FRS for free for 15 days by clicking on the picture below.  You just have to pay for the shipping (about $4) and you will receive the items pictured below.   If you do decide to give it a try, you need to make sure you read the agreement because you will be signing up for their auto-ship program and will need to cancel within 14 days if you do not want to continue.  I have not used the auto-ship program since I buy my concentrate at another online store and get the chews at my local supermarket.

I LOVE my FRS Healthy Energy just as much if not more than when I completed my review!




P90X by Beachbody.com


I am pretty sure this will come as no surprise to anyone that P90X is in my top favorites!  If you are looking for a fitness routine that will give you serious results, you can’t go wrong with P90X!  Remember though, for it to work you have to do the program – all of it!  You will be sore, you will be pushed to your limits but you will emerge a “younger”, healthier more energetic you!!  Decide, Commit, Succeed!

If you are not yet familiar with EvoraKids, be sure to check out my original review here. Now let me tell you why EvoraKids is in my top pick of products over the past year.  We recently went to the dentist and typically the girls get their teeth cleaned, and usually there is a filling, and every time I am told that the girls need to focus more on their brushing and flossing and also that they especially are not doing good on their back teeth.   The only thing that has changed since our last visit is the addition of EvoraKids to our nightly routine.  However, this time there were no cavities and the dentist told me that the teeth looked great for both girls!  Nothing about better flossing or brushing – just healthy, great looking teeth!  I was so excited because I know as much as I tell them to brush their teeth good – they just do the same as always (enough to appease mom that they did in fact brush them).  Thank you EvoraKids for a product this mom can trust!



EnPointe Skin Solutions Pirouette Bamboo Microderm


Dr. Christine Rodgers EnPointe Skin Solutions pirouette Bamboo Microderm is one of the  most amazing products I have ever tried!  I still use this product once per week and each and every time it amazes me at how soft and smooth my skin is after use!  I look forward to this all week, the scent is both soothing and invigorating at the same time.   I love it so much!!!

Tropical Traditions


It would be sorely lacking to do a top product post and not include something from Tropical Traditions!  It was a tough call between the Coconut Oil, the Coconut Cream (watch for my upcoming review and another great giveaway!) and the Baby Silk Moisturizing Cream for Hand, Face, and Body.  I have loved every Tropical Traditions product that I have tried but my top pick goes to the Moisturizing Cream.  I ordered it this past time in the unscented version and I just want to point out that since this moisturizing cream is made from coconut oil, all that you get is a wonderful light coconut scent that I just LOVE!!

Ayala’s Herbal Water


I have stated in the past that this is the first drink that I have ever preferred over soda!  Instead of automatically reaching for soda to drink, I would much rather have Herbal Water, and I don’t feel like I am sacrificing anything!  My only complaint has nothing to do with Ayala’s Herbal Water, but instead my  local Whole Foods who is not doing a good job of keeping this in stock – I can never find it there even though they are supposed to be carrying it now!  At least there is always Amazon or the Herbal Water website!

I love, love, love my Herbal Water!!!

HD-Illuminating Plasma Crystals Diamond-Dermabrasion Peel Treatment


This is another one of the most amazing skin care products I have ever had the opportunity to try.  I LOVE this product and also use this one weekly!  It feels amazing and the results are incredible!  If you want to look younger – check out this product!  Watch for this in an anniversary party giveaway!

Karito Kids World Collection Dolls


We immediately fell in love with the World Collection Dolls as soon as I saw their website.  Once we received Ling in person we couldn’t believe how beautiful she was!  I have since bought dolls for both my older daughter and one of my granddaughters.  They all love their World Collection Dolls!  The beautiful dolls and great company make this a favorite top pick for me!

CleanWell:  All-Natural Hand Sanitizer


I love CleanWell’s hand sanitizers (and the hand soap too!) because its all-natural, alcohol-free and non-toxic.  Plus it smells great!  I carry this with me everywhere and when I pull it out at school lunches or parties, I find all the kids holding their hands out for some!  Great product for a top pick and one that we will continue to use!

There are many other favorite products that I have discovered over the past year and continue to use, but wanted to give you my absolute favorites!  Others that deserve honorable mention are Mega Catch Alpha Mosquito Trap, In(fus)ium 23, Baby QuasarZooni and Health Master.

I hope you enjoy my top product picks and I am looking forward to finding you  many more great products over the next year!  Have you tried any of these products yet?  If so leave me a comment and let me know how you liked them!

  1. I haven't yet had the courage to try P90X but maybe one day… and the Cleanwell! LOVE it! I keep the bottle I won with me at all times. My husband's not a big fan of it because of the oregano scent but the boy and I use it several times a week.

  2. Hi Dawn,

    Thanks so much for this ingenious post! I am a regular reader of this (and many other) product review blogs. However, I end up reading so many reviews that I found it very hard to keep track of the various products. I think you had such a fantastic idea of posting a Top 10! Keep up the great work!

    Kind regards,
