Love Corn and The Light Family

 *This post was created in collaboration with Love Corn and MomsMeet. All opinions are 100% mine and as always, thank you for supporting Prim and Propah and the brands that I work with.


You know I love a good blogger kit and one that is food? Well, bring it on. I have two growing boys that are coming in hot when it comes to eating. They are only 6 and 4 but if what I am dealing with now tells me anything about the future, I am certainly in trouble from a food standpoint. When we got the very generous box in the mail from Love Corn, my kids were like STICKERS and then SNACKS 😂 and I was like CORN! Ask anyone in my family and they can tell you about my love of corn and cheese, both separately and together haha. But anyways, yes SNACKS! Plant based, Non-GMO, gluten-free snacks to be exact!



Mom life has been a bit cray lately, oh who am I kidding, mom life has been downright hard for the past year, harder than usual. I have to admit, that I now have the snacks low enough in the pantry so that my kids can go get it themselves. It's not how I envisioned parenting but this is one of those battles that I am happy to raise the white flag of surrender. Adding Love Corn snack packs to the closet has made me feel a little less guilt about the ease that I've welcomed in the snacking process. Love Corn sent us a bunch of varieties from habanero chili (my personal favorite), to sea salt, BBQ and salt + vinegar. The base for their recipe? Corn, sunflower oil and salt, that's it. Ingredients you can recognize... that I love... corn. 😂




In addition to the fact that my kids actually like this snack (when it comes to healthy stuff, it's a hard sell for them) and that this is the perfect size for lunch boxes and car snacks (though I do not look forward to rogue corn kernels in between seats), Love Corn looks like a brand that has goals to be a brand that gives back and supports their community, which is big for me. We vote with our dollars so if we're going to spend money, why don't we buy from brands who are doing great things and helping people in their community? That's how I like to vote anyhow.

TruSkin Review, Sponsored Content

 *This post was created in collaboration with TruSkin and MomsMeet. All Opinions are 100% my own and as always, I thank you for supporting Prim and Propah!


I have tried MANY face oils, serums and moisturizers in my day. I have been on the "clean beauty" scene for about 6 years now so I have had the opportunity to sample and review a lot of different brands and their product offerings. I wouldn't consider myself an expert but I wouldn't consider myself a novice either. I can tell when something is a good product for a good price. I can tell when something is overrated and overpriced and anywhere inbetween the two. So when TruSkin sent me their face serum and moisturizer, I have been able to review with a discerning eye.




When I first recieved the products, I have to admit, my first impression was to not be impressed. I mentioned that I have used many, many products so I have seen the prettiest and most impressive packaging that there is... but here's where I shouldn't be so snooty, right? Beauty and quality skincare should be accessible and available to all and we shouldn't judge a book by its cover. Based on my initial first few uses, I would say that this is a pretty good product and is on par with some of the brands that I've gotten at Whole Foods. There is no scent (which I know is huge for a lot of sensitive folks) and it's very lightweight, both the serum and the moisturizer. My skin has been drier than usual due to the New England cold and this duo has stood up to it, which I do find impressive.



I think what I like the best about TruSkin is their price point for this product. I use a toner, serum and moisturizer every day. I believe it's a good solid skincare routine for anyone and if you don't have major skin issues, I think this duo is actually pretty perfect. A Serum at $19.99 and moisturizer at $15.99. I've recently come to realize that just because a company puts forth affordability, doesn't mean they don't care about ingredients and sourcing. TruSkin is Leaping Bunny Certified so you know that they take consideration in that area.



I really liked this duo and even though I have other oils and moisturizers, will work this into my routine, I like it that much. Their products do the job and while they might not be the fanciest out there, they are affordable, quality and generous in size. Save 10% on any TruSkin products by using the promo code MOM10 on their website.
