Colgate©. The opinions and text are all mine.
I was only 19 years old when I decided to move to the USA. It was a very strange feeling because something inside of me was telling me that it was the right thing to do, but I would be lying if I said I was not scared to leave my family, friends, and culture behind. 22 years later I am very proud of my courage and decision. My whole family is here because of me, because of that courage - the same courage that every immigrant has when they leave their country and follow their dreams. We leave our country behind but not our culture, because our culture is a part of our history, and I will always be very proud of my Hispanic roots.
Did you know that Publix has a Hispanic Heritage Month celebration? I love how they dedicate a whole month to our beautiful culture and traditions; Traditions that I’m passing to my family.
Publix has some of my favorite must-have products to use at home that I have been using for years. These are products that I love, trust, and that make me feel like I am back at home in Columbia.
Here are some of my favorites:
Palmolive©: I love that the bottle is recyclable and made with 100% recycled plastic, and uses 0% parabens and phosphates in the soap. It’s safe for Olivia’s delicate skin since she loves to help me clean the dishes. It’s tough on grease, and gentle on the planet. You can find a huge variety of fragrances at Publix, so make sure to select your favorite.
2. Colgate® Optic White® Advanced: I have been using Colgate® toothpaste since I can remember. Taking care of my image and beauty is important to me, and Optic White® Advanced helps me to deeply whiten my teeth inside and out, unlike ordinary toothpaste. It also contains dentist recommended hydrogen peroxide.
3. Suavitel©: My kids both have their favorite blanket that they have been using since the day they were born. Suavitel helps me to add loving coziness and softness to it! They also love the fresh fragrance.
4. Irish Spring Soap©: This moisturizing body and face soap is Daniel’s favorite! It gives him a 24hr fresh feel and also washes away bacteria! Very important for active teens like himself. It was also my favorite when I was super active at school back in Colombia. Daniel loves its aroma and freshness.
You can find all of these products and more, some with super discounted prices at Publix. Shop in-store or online, here! (insert link)
