{Review} Udderly Smooth

 As a part of the Mosaic Reviews team, I've been given the opportunity to review some amazing products. This one is a bit different but so, so nice!

I received a box of Udderly Smooth cream. Udderly Smooth is a moisturizing product that was originally made for cows but has since been reformulated. It can be used for everything from a facial moisturizer to Diabetic foot care to dry, cracked skin. According to their website, Udderly Smooth is also excellent for sunburn! I won't be trying that out for awhile, as it's in the single digits here today, but it's good to know for the future.

Udderly Smooth is made in the USA, is not tested on animals and although it's eye catching packaging looks like a cow, there are no milk products in it. It comes in many different sizes and formulas.

I received:
- a 4 of hand cream ($2.75)
- a 2 oz. tube of hand cream ($1.75)
- a 12 oz. jar of body cream ($5.75)
- an 8 oz. jar of shea butter foot cream ($6.50)
- several sample packets (and a coupon!)

My hands are extremely dry -  to the point of cracking and bleeding when it gets really cold. I've not found a lotion that works well or for very long. So far, Udderly Smooth is working great!  It's not greasy and soaks quickly into my hands. Because really, who has time to sit around with slimy lotion hands?!? This is about all I need to moisturize my hands:

The foot cream is amazing as well. I walk around barefoot year round inside and as often as I can outside. I hate wearing socks. So my feet are not exactly pretty or even close to soft. Last night, I put the foot cream on my feet and put socks on. By this morning, my feet were noticeably softer and the dry skin looks much healthier. I was honestly surprised. Nothing has ever, ever worked on my feet.

The body cream is thick and reminds me of some of the medical-grade creams we've had to use for my daughter's eczema. It also soaks in quickly and smooths skin quickly.

Overall, this lotion is working really well for our family. My daughters are constantly stealing it! I've had to hide the small tube of hand cream. It has a lovely, light fragrance and does not leave hands feeling greasy. It's well worth trying, considering any lotions I've tried have cost much more and not worked nearly as well. (I think it would make a great stocking stuffer for girls!)

You can find Udderly Smooth at several retail locations including Walmart, Walgreens, Price Chopper and Dollar General. It's also available online through the Udderly Smooth website.  Also, if you visit the Udderly Smooth Facebook page you can download a coupon for $1 off any two Udderly Smooth products!

{Check out the UPDATED tutorial on using Khan Academy!!}

I'm not a math person. It just never clicked for me. So many homeschool moms have shared similar thoughts as well as their worries over how they'll teach their children upper levels of math. Finding tutors is always an option as are the more expensive computer-based curriculum. But what if those expensive curriculum are out of reach for you or you don't know anyone who can tutor?

Enter Khan Academy.

Khan Academy is a completely free resource that began with Sal - the original genius behind Khan Academy - wanting to provide a better education for relatives overseas. What began as some math videos shared with family members has become an extensive virtual library of over 4,000 videos on topics ranging from basic math to trigonometry to American Civics. They've been featured on The Today Show and have thousands of Twitter followers.  Khan Academy is being used in schools around the world.

So how does this work for …

Khan Academy - UPDATED

{UPDATE #2 -- Khan Academy now gives each person the option of choosing a grade level, from early math - which covers K-2 - to high school. You have to log in under your student's account to change their grade level. But it definitely guides their exercises in a very clear way! We really enjoy it. Let me know what you think!}

One of my most popular posts has been this little tutorial on using Khan Academy for homeschool.  Soon after I posted, Khan Academy completely revamped their Learning Dashboard.  It is even easier now for homeschool families to use Khan Academy for their students.

Here's how to get started, if you haven't yet.  And you should! Because it's amazingly easy and totally free.

First step. Sign in. Always sign in as a teacher, so you have access to all the 'coach resources' as they're called. It will also give you more ways to track what your students are doing and what skills they need to keep practicing.

Once you're signed in, what you…

map tablecloth

Reposting a popular homeschool idea...

One issue homeschoolers run into at times is where to keep maps. Many programs really require access to a world and US map. Some homeschoolers are blessed with enough space to have a dedicated homeschool room. For those of us that do school at the dining room table, the living room couch or where ever we land - where do we display a map?

My oldest daughter suggested gluing a map to the underside of a clear tablecloth. Sounded like a good idea to me! Turns out it was the easiest project ever. We now have a sturdy plastic tablecloth to protect the table as well as easy access to a world map as well as a US map.

I purchased a large clear table protector, a World & US wall map set and clear Elmer's glue.

First step, spread the whole plastic cloth out and line up the maps up the way you want them. Our table is large enough that we could have both maps shown at once.

Glue like crazy on the map side, then carefully flip it over so the map side…
