Summer Survival Kit Review and Giveaway from Tec Labs! Ends 7/5

Summer is finally here and along with that comes bumps, scrapes, rashes and bugs!  (At least in our Crazy House!) Thankfully, Tec Labs has us covered through their great line of products that treat everything from head lice to wound care!!  We were sent a Summer Survival Kit from Tec Labs and I am excited to share those products with you!!

The first product we received was the Tecnu Original Outdoor Skin Cleanser!

Myself and at least 2 of my children are EXTREMELY allergic to poison ivy and I have personally used this product on several occasions. If I get poison ivy, I will swell up to the point where I can't even open my eyes so if I even think I have come into contact with the stuff, Tecnu is my best friend!  If you have come into contact with poisonous plants, simply apply Tecnu to dry skin for two minutes and rinse with cool water or wipe off with a cloth. When used within 2-8 hours after exposure to the plants, Tecnu can remove urushiol oil before the rash begins. Once the rash has started, washing with Tecnu helps remove any free oil on skin allowing the natural healing process to begin without possible re-contamination. Urushiol oil can also spread from contaminated clothing, shoes, gloves, tools and pets. Since the oil does not evaporate, it can remain on these items for months or even years at a time. Use Tecnu to remove the oil and avoid a rash from secondary contact. This product is awesome because you can stop a rash before it ever occurs!!!  I am definitely going to be stocking up on this stuff!!!

The second product we received was StaphAseptic®.

In our house, we know all to well how quickly a simple cut or abrasion can turn into an infection. One year, my husband got a nasty wound on his leg after sliding during a game of softball. Despite his efforts to keep it clean and covered, it ultimately turned into a terrible, painful staph infection that required a trip to the ER along with a hefty amount of antibiotics and painful treatments.  Now, as soon as anyone in our home gets even a minor wound, we will immediately turn to StaphAseptic First Aid Antiseptic/Pain Relieving Gel!  StaphAseptic contains Lidocaine for pain relief so this is a perfect product for children!  I can't tell you how many times my 6 year old has come inside scraped up from climbing trees, falling off of his bike or wiping out on his skateboard. If you have a dare devil like mine, StaphAseptic will be your best friend! 

The final product we received was Tec Labs was their Licefreee Everyday! 2 in 1 Conditioning Shampoo!

Having 4 children, one that happens to be a girl with long, thick hair, there is nothing worse than getting the call that one of the kids on the baseball team or in the classroom has head lice. We get one of those calls or notes nearly every summer and I start itching as soon as I think about it.  Tec Labs has created this awesome product that contains naturally occurring ingredients to create an environment where head lice do not like to live. It is designed to be used in place of your regular shampoo. This product is perfect to use after treating head lice to prevent a recurring head lice infestation, on other family members to help prevent spreading head lice from one person to another, when notified of a head lice outbreak at school to help prevent head lice infestation at your home or if you are a teacher or a school administrator who may be in contact with students who have a head lice infestation. I call it genius. I will definitely be keeping this stuff on hand because it is bound to happen sooner or later and now I will be prepared if/when I get that call!  We have only had to deal with head lice in our home one time and personally, it was enough to last me a lifetime and if this product can help prevent us going through that again, it is worth every penny! 

If you don't know much about head lice, you should check out the Lice Freee webpage or join the Keeping Kids Lice Free Campaign on Facebook!!!  They both offer valuable tips and tools to help keep your children lice freee!  And if you are looking for other great tips on a variety of topics, check out the Tec Labs Blog!!! 

All 3 of these products are perfect for Summer and I would say they are "Must Haves" in the first aid kits. Having products like these on hand will prevent a lot of headache and best of all, unlike most products of this type, these are totally affordable. 

Visit the Tec Labs Website to check out all of their awesome products and for more information. You can even submit your own questions about the products and their uses or sign up for their newsletter to keep up with them!


One lucky reader is going to win their own Summer Survival Kit containing all 3 of the products we received!
