A Beautiful Day for a Venture Outdoors

On Saturday, Greg and I ran a 5k then headed into downtown for the Venture Outdoors Festival and a chance to see our friends at WRRYFree Skin Care (by the way, have you entered our giveaway that ends tonight???). After a nice walk around the Point and learning about some of the great ways to enjoy the outdoors in Pittsburgh, we took our own ‘lil adventure through Gateway Center and discovered a bunch of cool statues.

Here are some of our favorite photos from the day!

WRRYFree Skin Care Review and #giveaway

In case you missed it, Greg and I recently participated in a mud/adventure run. I was lucky enough to get a few samples of WRRYFree Skin Care before we embarked on our adventure. I was sent Climb On! Creme, Lotion and Lip Tube to test and share with you–all opinions are my own, but I hope they become yours, too!

First, I read the ingredients on the back of the Creme and was excited that everything sounded like you could eat it–that to me means nothing harsh was going on my semi-sensitive skin. Bonus? There’s a line there that says “Excellent chamois cream for cyclists”. Well, well! Guess what I took that to mean? I could use it to protect myself from any rubbing while adventuring 7 miles, most of it soaking wet and mud covered.

So, on it went. And you know what? It worked amazingly. I had no discomfort after the run! There’s even a nice little note there that says it’s great for diaper rash, too. Earlier, ‘lil Man was crying because of a diaper brand change, so I put some on him. Only morning will tell, but I think that he felt instant relief because the tears turned to smiles quickly.

The Lotion Bar kind of confused me because it feels almost greasy, but let me tell you, it WORKS. My elbows and knees were super dry after the weekend, and today I have the Lotion Bar to thank for how soft they are now. You take it out of the (super cute) container and just rub it on. It helped with my itchy skin and patched up the dryness. Sadly, I have no crazy scars from the event, but I have WRRYFree Skin Care to thank for that!

And the Lip Tube. Can I just tell you how much I hate mint? HATE it. But, last fall, I was lucky enough to come down with a cold and need some Lip Tube during PodCamp Pittsburgh. The owner of WRRYFree Skin Care was there with samples, so I have been a long time fan of the Lip Tube…and guess what? It’s peppermint flavored! Who knew I could actually like mint. That, and it is perfect for keeping lips from being chapped. We both used it before the run to bring wind or sun burn, so it even performs well in harsh conditions!
