Body Naturals Hyaluronic Acid Serum Review

* I received a sample of this product from Pure Body Naturals in order to facilitate this review





I have just started using products made by Body Naturals. The first I will be reviewing is their Hyaluronic Acid Serum. I also will be reviewing their Lemon Oil coming up but thats for later.

This serum comes in a glass bottle with a pump top. On the front it says Advanced Moisturizing Serum with Vitamins C & E. When I turn it around and look at part of the side label it says:

Not tested on Animals
Cruelty Free
98% Naturally Derived
72% Organic
Made In The USA

Hello! This company knows the key to my heart. I love it when companies are Cruelty Free.

I used this serum every day after taking a shower. I found that it hydrated my skin really quickly. As for moisturizing I found it to work really well. While there is not really a scent there is a slight one. I think this is green tea personally because I have a few green tea products that sort of smell like this but it is faint.  I liked the smell of it and found it pleasant.  The serum itself is clear. Its not too thick either it is absorbed by your skin quickly. It is not greasy or oily at all. It also doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. This is a major plus.


If you are not sure what Hyaluronic Acid is its basically like lubricant for the skin. A lot of people call it the "fountain of youth" but really its just lubricant for your skin. It's found naturally in the body in places like your eyes or joints. Its basically the body's natural lubricant as a cushion. As you can see thats why this makes a great skin care ingredient. It may also help repair skin cells and it boosts skin collagen.

Using a skin serum that has Hyaluronic Acid has all of these benefits. It also has the great Vitamins C & E which we know are great for skin. Along with other ingredients such as Organic Aloe, Witch Hazel, and Green Tea  takes the best of natural ingredients and combines them to make a great serum. It also helps that the bottle is quite attractive with a lovely pink label. It comes in 1 oz. formula which should last you a long time.


You can pick up the serum HERE and then read more about their wonderful guarantee.

Old Factory Soy Candle Gift Set Review + Giveaway





I absolutely love burning candles. Thats why I was super excited when OLD Factory asked me to review their set of 3 natural Soy Candles.  The set I picked out was  Happy Holidays. It includes Candy Cane, Gingerbread and Christmas Tree. This is the perfect holiday gift.

Each set comes with 3 soy candles. There are a bunch of different sets to choose from. Each candle burns for over 20 hours.  Yep 20 hours. That is a lot longer than a regular wax candle of the same size. Thats what makes these candles unique. Of course there are lots of other things to like about these candles. They don't have cheesy images of apples or candy canes on the label to remind you of your grandmas house. That way they easily go with any decor, modern or traditional.

They are hand poured in the USA with soy wax, come with a self trimming wick, and premium fragrance oils. You don't even have to trim the wick. Perfect for the dangerously lazy candle burner. Certain family members may fall into this catergory so this is perfect for my house. Each candle is a 2 oz candle, but with each one burning 20 hours thats a whole lotta burning time for their size.

They come in a variety of sets so you can get any scent year round for your home. I love the gingerbread scent. Its my favorite. When I got them I opened them up and let my mother who was visiting guess which scent was which. They are a nice set and I love the packaging. Its perfect for a housewarming gift, holiday gift, or just because. After lighting this candle for over an hour it was as if I had just lit it. These will last a long time burning. If you want to purchase your own gift set check them out HERE. You can find them on Amazon and they have a wonderful guarantee.

Would you like to own your own set of Old Factory soy candles? Tell me which gift set you would pick out in the comments below and enter in the rafflecopter form. Good Luck!

4K HDMI Cable Ultra Premium Series by Solid Cordz® Review





I was asked to review the 4K HDMI Cable by Solid Cordz.  This HDMI cord is very cool. It is not your typical small rubber cord that you pick up from the store. This is a HDMI 4k High Definition Multimedia Cable. If you don't already know what an HDMI cord is I'll briefly explain. This is the cord you would connect to your DVD players, Blu-ray players, video game consoles, a/v receivers etc. Most of the time it would connect directly to your HD television set. It connects two devices so that you can use them. Most of the time it connects your device to your TV in order to view media. 

My favorite feature of these cords is the triple shielded wire construction. These wires are protected by a triple weave type covering that almost feels metal. I'm not sure it could be plastic but its definitely different than rubber covering. It is almost like cable armor! How neat is that. As the cable moves the weave flexes with the cable.  As you can see from the picture above, it goes over the cable cord. Its a nice durable cable and there's a reason why these are called Solid Cordz. These cables are about as solid as you can buy.  

The connectors are 24K Gold Plated. This is my kind of HDMI cable. Not only is this cable high performance and quality but it looks very modern too. Who says a cable has to be ugly. It can have a little bling on it too! 

In addition to the nice looks it also performs.  With Ultra High Speed up to 18 GBPS these cables are 100% HDMI Certified. They also have up to 7.1 Digital Surround Sound and lossless digital surround sound. They are compatible with Ethernet, and 3D. It supports resolutions of 480i thru 2160. Compliant with HDCP, CEC and ROHS. Supports SACD, TrueHD, DTS-HD.

 From the package it states:
This High Speed HDMI cables have been designed to meet the performance standards set by HDMI 1.4 and have passed stringent Category 2 testing. They are backward compatible to all previous versions.


 The major enhancements introduced in the HDMI 1.4 specification
• HDMI® Ethernet Channel
• Audio Return Channel
• 4K Resolution Support 

I previously reviewed Solid Cordz 6' extension cords and hdmi cords. Their cords are the best you can buy. Every time I see a skinny little extension cord , I think to myself my Solid Cordz is so much nicer. The wires are covered in thick rubber and it houses it much better than my skinny rubber extension cords that last a year at best. It honestly is the best extension cord I have ever had. I now plan on purchasing the 10' extension cords next. Never can have too many extension cords! 

There's one last feature that I have to share with you. Solid Cordz has a lifetime warranty on their Cables. Yes a lifetime warranty. If you are like me we have all bought cables on sale just to take them home and a month or two later they stop working. So you can buy your Solid Cordz in confidence. Read up and purchase your solid cord cables at the link below.

Body Merry Hyaluronic Dew & Pro-A Serums, Age Defense Eye Cream Review

The assets in this message were delivered to me in order to promote Body Merry. All opinions are my own.


Yay... Thank You Body Merry for asking me to review your line of skin care. I have two Serums and an Eye Cream to tell you all about. I can't decide which one of these Serums I like better. Initially I thought only one had Green Tea, but they both do. Theres 2 major things I really like about these products. They are Made in America, and they Do Not Test on Animals. I think both of those are important and if I can purchase an American Made product then I will. Both of the products arrive in glass bottles with glass droppers.





Hyaluronic Dew Serum:
 I loved the smell of the Hyaluronic Dew Serum and enjoyed smelling before applying. It does contain Witch Hazel which I like, but it could also be the Wildcrafted Green Tea. Applying this serum to clean skin was refreshing. Application was easy and the serum spreads easily. After applying the skin absorbs it quickly. No oily residue left behind at all.  Vitamin C and Green Tea are both antioxidants that leave your skin soft smooth and nourished. If you have spots then this would be the serum to use and it also helps firm your skin. I noticed my skin felt firmer after using this daily.






Pro-A Serum:
This serum features Retinol, which reduces the fine lines and wrinkles. Areas like your mouth and eyes benefit most from an ingredient like Retinol. Its a professional grade 2.5% Retinol Serum that also has Green Tea for the antioxidant kick.  Its been known that it fades brown spots, reduces wrinkles and smooths rough skin. Throw in Hyaluronic Acid and you have tissue hydration which helps your skin retain moisture. It also helps improve your skins cellular function. This Serum left my skin feeling soft to the touch. There is no scent on this Serum that I could smell at all. It also contains Organic Aloe which I am a huge fan of for skin products.  This serum doesn't contain sulphates, parabens or phthalates, which is the number 1 feature that I like about this serum.


Age Defense Eye Cream:
This one comes in a plastic pump top. Its easy to dispense and after applying to the eye area it leaves your skin feeling fresh. Contains Aloe which is one of my favorite plants. But as I looked over the long list of ingredients expecting to read chemicals it actually lists a wonderful list of natural ingredients. From Organic Coconut Oil, Cocoa Butter to Organic Licorice and Blueberry Extract this Cream has everything. Seriously. I knew using this that I liked the way my skin felt and the dark circles under my eyes were not nearly as bad.  This cream also has matrixyl 3000 & tripeptide5, ocean based retinol, botanic hyaluronic acid, organic vitamins & minerals, and pure plant oils. The long list of natural ingredients leaves this cream smelling really good. I wish I could use this on my entire face, ok I confess I did!  The pump top contains 1oz of Age Defense Eye Cream. Its my new favorite Eye Cream everyone. Its awesome.

Purex Crystals Aromatherapy Review & Giveaway


The assets in this message were provided to me by Purex. 

Introducing Purex Crystals Aromatherapy in-wash fragrance booster.  

I love it when Purex asks me to review their products. Their fragrances are always the best. Today I'll be reviewing Purex Crystals Aromatherapy Energy. It comes in 3 scents.

WELL BEING: Brightens any mood with happy fragrance of fresh blossoms
ENERGY: Helps you tackle any day with the stimulating power of citrus
SERENTIY: Keeps you calm all day long with the gentle scent of Water-Lilies





I received Energy. I took the cap off and smelled the scent. It definitely has a citrus smell that almost makes me thirsty or hungry. I'm not sure which. It did slightly remind me of my childhood when orange powdered ingredients made drinks and not things we added to our laundry to make smell good.  Energy scent described as, "Helps you tackle any day with the Stimulating power of Citrus" And its a nice citrus smell. I do prefer citrus over floral so I was pleased to try Energy Purex Crystals Aromatherapy. What scent do you think would be your favorite?










What makes the new Purex Crystals Aromatherapy any different than the rest?

Well, these aren't just regular Purex Crystals scent boosters.  These are infused with Floral & Citrus Oils. I have recently been getting into using Essential Oils and I absolutely love it. So thanks  Purex, for embracing it and providing this. Its a product that I can add to my washers tub at the start of the was h. Its super easy, and once I have added it, I combine it with my regular laundry detergent. Thtas it! Instead of the smell disappearing as soon as the heat from the dryer wears off (total bummer), these scents blend into the clothing and last for weeks.

Can be used in both top loader and H.E. washers. Want to find out who sells then click HERE.

An interesting idea, you could take these crystals and put them into little bags and hang them in the bathroom using ribbon as a replaceable air freshener.

Check them out on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, & Instagram. And their website at Purex.com

Want to win some? You know the deal enter below. I'll pull 3 winners to mail them each a coupon to try it out. US only ends 11/21/14.

Adovia Intesive Anti-Wrinkle Cream Review





Adovia skin care line is one of my favorites. They asked me to review their Intensive Anti-Wrinkle Cream which is part of their Dead Sea Mineral line of products.

This cream is made with Dead Sea Water which is awesome because Dead Sea Water contains minerals unlike any other. Those minerals help control the itching and other symptoms of my psoriasis. Its also great for all kinds of skin.


This cream has Vitamin C, Dead Sea Salt & Minerals, Lactic Acid and Collagen. These all have great effects on wrinkles. Along with Seaweed and Aloe Vera your skin will be happy because of all the nutrients in this cream. This will ultimately increase your skins firmness and vitality. It is a Deep-hydrating cream that contains natural Sweet Almond Oil. Silicone and Vitamin A help keep your skin firm.

The Minerals in Dead Sea Salt contain Magnesium, Calcium, Potassium, Bromides & Sodium. Each one of these minerals brings a benefit such as Calcium inpromves fluid retention, stress, slowing the aging of skin and calming the nervous system. Potassium helps balance your skins moisture. All of them benefit your skin in certain ways. These minerals are what make Dead Sea Salts so valuable in a skin care product.

This Intensive Anti-Wrinkle Cream is a thicker cream so its best if you use it after washing and I do recommend a toner if you use one. Then apply this to your skin and neck. The perfect time to do this is right before you go to bed. Its also light enough of a cream that you can use it in the morning or mid-day as well. I noticed that my skin felt softer, and more plump in my areas of concern for wrinkles. I love everything Adovia makes and would consider this as a great intensive wrinkle treatment right before bedtime.

You can find this product HERE.

Smart Weigh 500 x 0.01g Digital Pro Pocket Scale Review


Smart Weigh 500 Digital Pro Pocket Scale



A scale is a scale, right? Thats all I thought they did was just weigh things. But I really had no idea all things a scale can do.  This scale by Smart Weigh can basically weigh anything. When I was asked to review it I figured that it was just like any other scale. But I learned a lot so I'm very impressed with it. I was surprised at all the features it had. Its not just for mail!

Jewelry
This scale can weight gemstones, diamonds or any other precious stones easily. If you put the scale on the CT setting you can weigh diamonds, gold to one hundredth of a gram. The PCS Function which counts all the piecse youre weighing is another feature to help make your job easier.

Postage
Now this is probably what I use this scale for most. I live in a remote area and I rarely can make it to the local post office. I often need to send a heavy letter or package but im not sure what the amount will be. Thats where this comes in handy. It will weigh your package or mail and allow you to manually figure out your postage yourself. That way you save money knowing exactly what the cost will be. I used to just slap on a bunch of stamps just to be sure but now I don't have to.

In the kitchen
I never thought I would NEED to have a scale in the kitchen. That was until I met Green Tea Matcha Powder. When I received it I just eyeballed it into my recipe and discovered a wide eyed short time later that I had used WAY too much in my baking. Like 3 times too much! Had I used this scale to measure out my ingredients properly I wouldn't have had to toss that batch. Its also a great way to measure portions if you are watching your intake.

Prescriptions
What? I know right? I had no idea! If you are a pharmacist or caretaker that handles medicine this little scale can do it all. It has a unique PCS Function that accurately counts the amount of tablets you are weighing. You can fill prescriptions in a jiffy no need to count each individual tab. Using four precision sensors it provides you with accurate readings. The hold Function locks the weight reading on the screen.


I've never had a scale like this. It was easy to change modes, it was slim small and actually handsome. My last scale was difficult to figure out and didn't have the option of multiple modes. I love that it comes with 2 plastic protective covers that double as expansion trays. I had no idea thats what these were and when I found out I was super jazzed. I can use the trays when weighing my Green Tea Matcha Powder without worrying about it getting all over and inside the scale. I love my scale and its definitely replacing my old scale.

This scale features 6 modes. g, oz, ozt, dwt, gn or ct. Featuring a beautiful stainless steel platform and chrome buttons. It also has rubber grips on the bottom for stability so your scale isn't sliding about while weighing.  The capacity for this scale is 500 grams with a wide measuring range so this little scale packs a punch. This scale features a blue LCD backlit display making it easy to see in daylight or in dim lighting. Takes 2 AA batteries and has an auto shutoff feature so you don't waste your battery.

Sticky Suction Car Mount by iGotTech Review



I have reviewed other phone stands in the past. So when iGotTech asked me to review this one I figured it would just be another regular car mount. But this mount is the best mount I have ever used. Instead of a magnet or a holder, this mount uses sticky suction. It also rotates, and can be used vertically or horizontally. Attaching the mount to the surface was way easier than I imagined. That clip you see is opened and closed until a suction strong enough is created and then you close it. As you can see from my image above, there are several ways you can use your device with this mount.

Removing this mount is easy. It also doesn't leave any residue on the surface or on your device. I was very surprised that I was able to remove and remount my device several times without having to clean the sticky part. I assumed dust and debris in the air would get it dirty in between but I haven't had to wash it since I have had it. But if you do get it dirty just wash it clean and its good to go for 1000+ washes.

Plus the best thing is you don't HAVE to use this in your car. You definitely can and it would be easy to mount anywhere you have a clean surface. But I see more possibilities than the car. Bedside table, Kitchen tabletop, Patio table, Desk or even bathroom countertop. It can go anywhere.

They currently offer a crazy satisfaction guarantee when you purchase one. I know they are very passionate about their products. You can read more about their Guarantee and/or purchase one HERE. Tell me what you would put on your iGotTech Sticky Suction Car Mount.

Landscape Staples Review


I got these for my new garden, but since its fall, I may have to wait till next year to do my complete garden. I do have some leftover starter plants though and for the purpose of this review I will share my experience. I was very glad that Darn Good Products asked me to review their Landscape Staples.

I have a ton of fencing and wiring because my dogs notoriously like to trample any garden I have if they can. I also have wild rabbits that somehow get through our fence. On one side it is wired so thats probably where they are entering from. I noticed that the leaf of my cucumber plant was already chewed off. So in an attempt to ward off my rascally rabbits I used these Garden Staples. They were perfect and just what I needed. They are just the right length at 6" to hold into the ground strong. Just using my hand I could only get it about 3 inches into the soil. I recommend using a rubber mallet to pound them in but I'm sure you could use a hammer or other tool. They did not even bend at all while inserting them into soil and whacking them in.

 They are made from extra sturdy steel so they won't bend in normal soil. The ends are sharp so its easier to insert. You don't have to use these just for rabbit fencing, they have a variety of uses. Landscaping fabric installations, weed barriers, pet fences, artificial turf, irrigation pipe, erosion control products and whatever else you need. I also like that they come with 100 Staples. That way I know I have enough for whatever project I am working on.

These would be perfect as I mentioned for landscaping fabric. I currently have some attached to a unit for shading and the ends flap in the wind. It is perfect for attaching it to the ground to ensure it doesn't move in the wind. You could also use these as markers. Or cosmetically as a marker with tape and writing each row seeded contents.

I tried to yank the staple out after I had inserted it. It isn't going anywhere. I was very impressed with how sturdy, and convenient these Landscape Staples are. If you would like to purchase some check them out at the link below. They also have a money back guarantee you can read more about.  Tell me what kind of project you would use these on in the comments below.

Best for my Pets Bully Sticks Promo Review


Bully Sticks!

First off my dogs were very excited when this package arrived. I don't know if they knew that I was asked to review Bully Sticks or not but boy they knew it the second I received it in the mail. I hadn't even sat down when sure enough Moxie was right there at my feet. Shoving her snout into my leg to let me know she wanted one. But Moxie how do you know you want one when you have never even had a Bully Stick? Apparently she just KNEW!

Bodhi can't wait and  snatches it out of my hands! 


All Natural , 100% Pure Beef I feel really good giving these to my dogs. Plus they didn't inhale them in 30 seconds like they normally do.  They are made of dried muscle, are Gluten-Free and Grain-Free which is 100% digestible.  Grain-Free is very important for Bodhi because he has a Grain allergy. Almost all of the major treats on the market contain grains of some sort. Especially the biscuits. These are Chemical Free, High in Protein,  and promote Oral Health. Plus these treats actually took them a bit to get through.

 Both dogs really enjoyed them and come running if I even rustle the bag just a little bit. I'm definitely impressed with these Bully Sticks. They lasted longer than a typical dog treat, they are safe of grains so I can feed them to both. Overall I would definitely buy them again. You can watch Moxie chew on her Bully Stick while my cat yawns in extreme boredom.






Right now they have a great guarantee for every purchase. You can read more about them on the link below as well as purchasing the Best for my Pets Bully Sticks.

Children 'N Us Stroller Organizer Review



I have been lugging around a massive diaper bag. Its huge and I really didn't know what I was missing until Children 'N Us asked me to review their Stroller Bag.

Adjustable Straps
 My diaper bag does not fit onto my stroller properly and you kind of have to force it onto the arms. With this Stroller bag it comes with adjustable straps. Whether you need it long or short this bag will accomodate your stroller. How awesome is that? Adjusting it to your stroller was easy, just adjust each strap to the length and tightness you prefer. This makes it easier to transfer to other objects as well. Want to go from Stroller to Bike? Just take off and readjust. Instead of having one long strap that will wobble about it has 2 straps on either end. By having them both adjustable it keeps the bag stable so you don't have to worry about it wobbling about and things spilling over.

What does it hold?
There are insulated spots for 2 bottles or sippy cups. There is a pocket for your cell phone. There is an external pocket for an extra cloth or pacifiers. Inside theres also a zippered pocket for your keys or anything else you want tucked away. The inside will hold enough diapers and wipes for any short trip you are taking. When I went through my massive diaper bag I found things I didn't even know I had in there! I totally had way more stuff than I needed. But what also impressed me was how versatile it is. You don't have to use it on just a stroller. What puts this bag over the top for me though, is the double adjustable straps. A must have feature for me.



Different ways to use the Children 'N Us Premium Stroller Organizer:

  • On your bicycle
  • On the back of your car seat
  • -Let your kids grab their own drinks
  • -Let them grab their own toys
  • On a stroller

2 Majestic Bombay Dog Dental Tools Review



As an avid blogger I love it when things cross your path that are just what you've been looking for. When I was asked to review the Majestic Bombay Dog Dental tools I was glad because I have been needing something like this for some time. 
Majestic Bombay Dog Dental Tools

So I have tried everything, dental chews, dental sticks, everything that says it will end tartar on your dog's teeth. But nevertheless there was always a buildup of it on their teeth. If you want a professional to clean them its hundreds of dollars. I don't want him to have nubs when hes old so what can I do to help him out? I used to actually scrape off what I could with my fingernail which is not only gross but not very ideal. I ordered these guys and I began inspecting my dogs teeth.


As you can see in this picture you can see some buildup at the gum line. Now obviously if your dog has red, swollen, bleeding or eroded gums please take your dog to the vet. Also if he has a very bad rotten smell coming from his mouth. All of those are not good. I also suggest brushing your dogs teeth as well if possible. But as long as your dog will let you use this tool you can safely remove some built up tartar and save yourself the extra cost of visiting the doggie dental office. 

You don't have to use force, I was able to simply scrape softly and the tool did the work. Just placing it on the tooth and rubbing up and down got the plaque off. As long as your dog is willing to let you work on his mouth then using this tool should be no problem. I was very impressed at how easily the plaque came off. I suggest placing the scraping tool at the gumline and scraping downwards. 



Some of the features are:

  • 6-1/2-Inch Double Headed Pet Tartar Remover
  • Mirror features .85"diameter real glass for superior clarity
  • Non-slip Knurled Handle Ensures Accuracy and Comfort
  • All Stainless Steel
  • Wash and Dry after Each Use

These are very economical so even if you aren't sure if it will work, its not a huge investment. 

Tell me what you are doing to help your dog keep his teeth healthy!?

Adovia Natural Sulfur Soap with Dead Sea Salt Review


I was provided a sample of Adovia Soap in exchange for my honest opinion.



I  was asked to review Adovia's  Natural Sulfur Soap Bar. I love nice soap. My dad used to buy bulk soap bars like Irish Spring and still this day theres a 24 pack of it still sitting there. My mother recently visited me and opened one up. Apparently this is an old school thing. Most of us have moved on to gels or foams or liquid soaps. But I only like the good stuff soaps. And yes as always Adovia hasn't disappointed me. Please note that this soap is specifically for Acne prone, oily skin and is not recommended for dry or sensitive skin.

This bar of soap contains minerals and sulfur from the Dead Sea. It helps to balance your moisture with Olive Oil, Dead Sea Minerals and Aloe Vera extract. Sulfur has Antiseptic, Anti-Fungal and Antibacterial properties. This bar of soap has a 3% Sulfur content. It cleanses your face and body but still leaves your skin feeling smooth.

It has steadily been over 100 degrees this summer and as a result I have had more breakouts than normal. I liked using this bar because I can simply just wash with it either my face or my body. It does not get mushy like regular soap does. It stays nice and hard so the bar should last you a long time. It also doesn't feel like theres any leftover residue. I know when I use regular bar soap it leaves me feeling not so clean. This stuff really does leaving your skin feeling completely clean and ready to moisturize.  I know it says its not for sensitive skin, but I have chemical allergies and this didn't bother my skin at all. I suppose the Sulfur may bother some skin types.

If you would like to check it out for purchase click on the link below. Do you prefer gels(body wash), liquid soaps, foams or bars of soap? Let me know in the comments.

Propresser Garlic Press Review







I was so happy when I was asked to review the Propresser Garlic Press. I had JUST tossed mine into the garbage because it had all these water stains on the metal. The grate was hard to clean and I just didn't want to eat the garlic that came out of it anymore. Then I had the chance to review this Propresser Garlic Press. Immediately I knew that it was designed better than my previous Garlic Press.  The metal is higher quality 100% stainless steel. It also has a flip up basket so you can easily wash it off properly and completely. This was a huge problem with my last one.

So I am just going to tell you. I left my garlic in the pulp. I didn't peel it. I didn't even attempt to try. I wanted to see how well this press worked using a complete covered garlic clove. In the top right picture you can see that I inserted it into the basket. Then I show you how much pulp is leftover. It pretty much squeezed that Garlic Clove dry. This means I can easily leave the clove in the pulp and just squeeze. What a time saver plus its more convenient for me. You can of course peel it if you prefer but its not necessary. You can see the Garlic that was pressed comes out with all the juices in the clove. It extracts everything but the pulp.

This Garlic Press comes with a fantastic lifetime guarantee which makes me feel better about purchasing it. I always like it when a company backs up a product with a guarantee.

Right now if you order you get The FREE eBook "Home Chef" is a 70-page kitchen management book that reveals how to create your ideal kitchen, great tips if you want to initiate a Chef career and much more. It's yours FREE just for ordering the Propresser Garlic Press. I'm not sure how long that will last!

Matcha Green Tea powder by Kiss Me Organics Review


Organic Matcha Green Tea by Kiss Me Organics
I had the opportunity to review Organic Matcha Green Tea by Kiss Me Organics. It is culinary grade which means its perfect for baking and cooking in food. I know that Green Tea is high in antioxidants but I have never really liked the taste of it. So when I heard that I could buy a culinary grade Green Tea Matcha powder I was intrigued. This meant I could bake with it, cook with it add it to my coffe (major coffee addict here) and therefore it wasn't straight green tea flavor. A lot of people use it to add to their smoothies.

 For some of you who have never heard of this and don't know what Matcha is let me explain it. Matcha is when the whole leaf is used and consumed. Because you are using all parts of the tea leaf, it contains more of the healthful elements that green tea provides. So it is like Green Tea but with a bonus.

I decided to make Matcha Green Tea Chocolate Chip Almond Cookies from a recipe I found and simply added 2 TBS of Matcha Green Tea Powder. I figured it would make a great energy boost combined with the sugar and chocolate chips. They are perfect for a mid afternoon pick me up snack. Plus I love chocolate chip anything so I knew this was a win/win.



I started with just the basic recipe added the powder before adding the chocolate chip and slivered almonds. It made a slightly green cookie but barely noticeable. It had a slight green tea taste but it really just tasted like a chocolate chip cookie with a hint of green tea. The next thing I'm going to bake are some banana green tea muffins. I just discovered a great banana muffin recipe that would be perfect together.

Right now it comes with a Free Matcha Recipe Guide book with purchase containing 50+ Recipes that will be emailed to you after purchase.

Have you tried Matcha Green Tea? Let me know what you have made with it or if you want to try it in the comments below.

InstaNatural RoseHip Oil Review




I just love that I was asked to review InstaNaturals 100% Pure Rosehip Seed Oil.
I have some skin conditions that require me to extensively moisturize my skin. That is why I love Rosehip Oil. 

Rosehip oil is considered a dry oil that is amber in color. What is Dry oil? A Dry oil is one that soaks into your skin doesn't leave a greasy residue behind once its been absorbed.  Its high in fatty acids and is great for dry, weathered and dehydrated skin. Its also great for scars and treating wrinkles. 

Versatile:

You can use it straight from the bottle or you can add it to a cream, lotion, facial oil or massage oil.  Because Rosehip oil is very gentle to the skin it can be used undiluted. This is awesome for me because I have a chemical allergy to many skincare and hair care products. The option to make natural products for other uses with Rosehip oil means its extremely versatile and natural. 

Known to be beneficial to damaged skin I used this for exactly that purpose. I have an area on my ankle that is very dry and scaly. I had once worn boots that were too small (brand new unbroken in boots) and had done damage to the skin on my ankle. I have used my lotions and steroid creams but its no use because the dead skin on top was just not letting it moisturize below. What I did was I used the rosehip oil to soften up the scaly skin layer that was on top. I then would apply my steroid cream on top. After about a week of doing this, I was very happy to discover that the top scaly layer was peeling off in large sections. Used in combination with my prescription steroid creams I was able to moisturize and soften up the dead skin on top that was refusing to slough off. Now that the top layer of skin is removed I can moisturize and treat the underlying skin with my creams and with rosehip oil to treat it properly. My hope is to remove the next layer of skin so fresh new skin cells can emerge for a better looking ankle.

Hydracentials Sporty 25 oz Insulated Stainless Steel Water




I drink water from sun up to sun down so when I was asked to review this water bottle I was pleased to say yes. I am always looking for a superior water bottle and this Hydracentials Sporty 25 Oz Insulated Stainless Steel Water Bottle doesn't disappoint.

This water bottle has a ton of things I like about it but the major thing is that my 2 toddlers canot open this one. Of all my water bottles thety always seem to figure out how to open it and water spills everywhere. This one has a spout thats a little stiffer to put down and pull out so it makes it super convenient for me. Also in those cases of accidental leaks.  There are other features like the fact that the spout has a straw so you don't need to tilt your head back while drinking your wataer. Or you can even remove it like I did and use it like normal. It is 25 Oz so its a good amount to keep you hdryated on long walks, or bike rides. It also has a nice handle at the top that you can link to whatever a stroller, a bike, a backpack.

 Its insulated so after putting cold water inside the water bottle I wanted to see how many hours it took to take it back to room temperature. I filled it full of ice and filled it with water at 8am. I went back to check on it at 4pm and there was still ice and cold water inside. I was pretty impressed with this. I came back in the morning and therer were still small bits of ice in the bottle. Now I'm officially Sold on this water bottle. Completely impressed with the insulation with no condensation on the oustide. One other feature I enjoy is that the mouth of the water bottle is wide, which means I can fill it with regular ice cubes from home. This is a huge plus for me. If you are looking for a nice looking insulated water bottle thats also 18/8 stainless steel food grade then this is the one for you. There is also foam at the bottom which I assume is to help protect the surface it is stitting on from damage. 

  • Featuring Premium Quality 18/8 Food Grade Stainless Steel you know this is top notch materials. 
  • Sporty 25 Oz Insulated Bottle with Flip Cap and Straw. This flip cap is awesome.
  • BPA Free  We like BPA free on everything

Dream Essentials Luxury Sleep Mask, Sleep Serum & Ear Plugs Review




Ok I have the best product for Mommies or anybody else who needs to take a time out and relax. So that means its pretty much everybody. Dream Essentials asked me to review their Luxury Sleep Mask with Sleep Serum and Ear Plugs. As a mom and a mom of twins I needed one of these. I consider this a "rescue pack". A Rescue pack is something that you need in order to relax. I know we all wind up tight or burn the candle wick at both ends, but its important to take time out for yourself. And as a mom of twin one year olds that is very rare. Thats where this Dream Essentials Luxury Sleep pack comes in. It comes with a Sleep Mask, Sleep Serum, and Ear Plugs.

Luxury Sleep Mask
Ok I have had several sleep masks over the years. This one is the first one that fits properly and comfortably. I also tested this in broad daylight and even facing the sun I could not see at all. It is 100% fully light blocking. It also fits snugly around my eyes so that nothing filters in the sides. It is padded nicely so if is comfortable and the strap on the back is adjustable. The strap also features the Comfort Snug™.  It's made out of 100% cotton so it is breathable and soft on your face. This is literally the nicest sleep mask I have ever had.

Sleep Serum
I used this last night , I opened it up and put it behind my ears, you can also put it on your temples or the back of your neck or all three. The heat from your body warms up the oil and intensifies the smell. The serum is made of Essential Oils of Lavendar, Rose & Roman Chamomile in a Jojoba base. This helps relax you so you can easily fall asleep or enter that relaxed state. It was nice to have the scent to think about just as your drift off as you breathe it in.

Ear Plugs
Ladies these ear plugs are designed for a smaller ear canal like ours. These plugs will block out sound such as snoring, loud kids, loud tv whatever it is. If you are like me then sometimes the only opportunity you get to nap is during the day. And normally my house is pretty busy during that time. Thats why this kit is perfect I can even go in the bedroom close the door put my mask, insert my ear plugs and relax with some sleep serum. The ear plugs even have a noise reduction rating of 32 decibel.
