A Good but Inexpensive Foundation for Adult Acne

Hey mommas! I am a 31 year old SAHM mom. I currently use Arbonne foundation and Aveeno clear complexion face wash and moisturizer. I am running out of my Arbonne foundation and wonder if anyone has a suggestion for an over the counter foundation that is not $30+ dollars. I LOVE the Arbonne stuff and it has been the only foundation that I found to not break me out, but I am really needed to crimp our budget. I will buy Arbonne if necessary but I would like to find something cheaper and locally. Any suggestions?

Fav Sunscreens for You and the Kids?

Hi Ladies, Before I waste another $30 on sunscreen that's okay (bought three last year -- Johnson & Johnson, which was super thick, the Neutragena baby stick, and another I can't remember), I thought I'd ask what brands of sunscreen you all like best. Just got a new Aveeno one (spf 30, says all natural, but kids seemed to burn through it even though we were only outside less than a couple of hours). I like the sticks for faces -- my boys are 1 1/2 and 3 1/2 -- but the Neutrogena one I got last year left white marks that I ended up...

Really Itchy Skin

My 21 month old son has really itchy legs. Soon as I take his pants off to change his diaper he scratches them. I have tried Cetaphil, Aveeno Daily Moisturizer, GoatsMilk lotion (and prob. others) I only bathe him every 3 days. I use Baby Aveeno Moisturizing bath for his skin and hair. Has anyone found lotions that work for dry skin? (I do not feel this is an allergy b/c this has occured since the weather got cool)

Dog Loosing Hair?

Hi Moms, I'm hoping that someone out there is a vet or has knowledge of dogs and can help. My 6 year old American Bulldog has recently started loosing his hair in patches. It started off looking like bug bite bumps and under the hair were scales that looked similar to a childs cradle cap. The fur was coming off with the scales when I rubed at them. He is not scratching any of the area which is only on his sides by his ribs. I took him to the vet about two months ago and he had a urinary tract infection that took two rounds of...

Kid with Not-so-severe Allergy Being Separated at School Lunch

A little background: when my son was a year old he got hives around his mouth after eating a bunch of French toast. I gave him Benadryl and washed him off...he was fine in 20 minutes. I took him to an allergist and my son tested positive for eggs, peanuts, and tree nuts. At 2 yrs old, the allergist ordered a blood test, which came back negative for everything. I was thrilled...thought he could start eating those items. Nope. Allergist said blood test really just says he is likely to grow out of the allergies or that they aren't that severe....
