Admire My Skin Brightening Serum


I do have to admit, I was a little hesitant in the beginning to try this product because I had tried so many that made my skin worse… more red, sometimes itchy, most of the time, so very dry. I am of mixed descent so finding anything that will work properly on my skin is a challenge. Anyway, so I tested this product on a small patch on my neck to make sure it wouldn’t have any bad effects on my skin before trying this serum on my face. It seemed to work well so after a few days, I tried it on my cheeks… more like the T-zone area where I have a lot of redness.

After the the first couple of days, I really didn’t see any difference and my face seem to look more red. Instead of feeling discouraged, I continued using it for a few more days after since I know I’m over 40 and my skin is a little tougher than most. The picture you see below is after two weeks of using the serum. The redness is not completely gone but it has calmed down a lot. I’m very happy with the results.

I would recommend this serum to family and friends but caution them to try it on a small area first since I’ve read some other reviews that warn about peeling and burning even though I didn’t have any of that. This is a great buy, it works and is more economical than what you would pay for a department store brand that may not work as well. Get yours here.

Whalek Cooling Mat Pressure Activated Chilly Dog Mat


My 85 pound lab was hesitant to use the cooling mat. He gets hot really fast, especially since we live in Central Valley, California where temperatures get as high as 105 degrees and he has a black coat. We had to coax him onto the mat by putting his reward snack on it until he got used to it.

I ordered the Large mat to fit our fur baby. Once he got used to the mat, everytime we let him in from outside, he now knows to sit right on it and he’ll lay on it for 30 minutes at a time and watch television with us when he’s not playing with the kids. I think he’s finally figured out how beneficial the mat is and enjoys it while he can.

I would recommend this cooling mat for all fur baby owners. I’ve already referred a few friends locally to purchase it here for their animals. Get yours here, too!

Muster Bag Kids Backpack + Cross Bag Set


Muster bag Kids Backpack + Cross Bag Set - Trendy Camouflage Pattern School Backpacks For Girls Boys Kids Elementary Middle School Bags Cute Bookbag Outdoor Daily bag (Black)

This Muster Bag backpack with matching cross-body bag is made of high quality material and is super-durable. The price of this bag set is also a bit higher than I would normally pay for backpacks and bags even at the durability and quality standard it is at. I can find comparable bags and backpacks at almost 40% cheaper than what these are going for.

On a positive note, purchasing a Muster Bag, you’re paying for the high quality it provides and in the long run will save money because you won’t be having to replace it as often. The material is strong, waterproof and ergonomically comfortable to use. Most other bags do not provide the kind of comfort you’re obviously paying for when choosing a Muster Bag. There are plenty of compartments and it is not heavyweight. It should survive at least a few years of abuse from your student.

  

Overall, if you can afford it, definitely purchase a Muster Bag. It is worth the price. I’m glad I have this one because I don’t think I can afford another one for awhile. Get yours here.

Lavilin Underarm Deodorant Soap


Underarm Deodorant Cream

I ordered this soap for my teenage daughter. She sweats more than the usual teenage boy and was feeling self-conscious about her underarms and odor. We tried medicated anti-perspirants and deodorants but none have been super helpful. After using this brand for a few days, we found this lasts longer than any others she has tried. We also liked that it is aluminum-free.

She said it feels nice on the skin. It also doesn’t transfer to her clothes which is awesome since she loves to wear dark colors. She also likes that it is practically unscented so it doesn’t clash with her scented lotions and such.

BOOK REVIEW: Sexual Integrity by J.A. Dennam

Without giving too much about the book away, a quick, general summary can be found anywhere from Amazon to Goodreads…

Brooke Monroe is the ultimate career woman determined to regain the graphic arts business her father sold to Ethan Wolf, VP of Monroe Graphics. It is your typical story of two people who cannot stand each other but are so far beyond intrigued with one another, they can’t help themselves. Love, business, chemisty, trust, and sex.… Oooh, the SEX.

This novel was definitely a page turner and adult-oriented.  Dennam’s writing style keeps you hungry for each event, right after the other. The descriptions were so easy to imagine that I can see it like a movie in my imagination. Depending on how far your imagination takes you as you sweat with each move the characters make, you’ll definitely hunger for more by this author. If you enjoy all I have just described, you will enjoy this book!

Blackhead Remover Pimples Comedones Splinter Extractors by Lifestance


Blackhead Remover Pimples Comedones Splinter Extractors with Tweezers 5 pcs Surgical Skin Care Cleaning Tools for Acnes Whiteheads Blemishes Zits Ingrown Hairs

This is a nice, stainless steel set for extracting blackheads. The tool with the loop is a little more sharp than I would like – I accidentally scraped skin off my face. Overall, the tweezers are very easy to use and  removed the blemishes I needed to remove. These are easy to clean off so my daughter can use them when I’m not using the tools. The tools are wonderful and are worth what you are paying for them. I like that it comes with the case to store the tools and keep them as clean as we can keep them.

Again, the tools are sharper than I expected them to be for a rookie set. They are super helpful for me and my daughters. I would recommend the product to friends and family with similar issues as ours. Get yours here.

LED Light Bulb with Dual USB Charging Ports


Mega Tiny PowerBulb LED Light Bulb with 2 USB Ports

This PowerBulb USB is an awesome product to own. I should have ordered two instead of the one. It makes for so much convenience! Not only is this power bulb doing its primary purpose of lighting up the room in my lamp, at night it charges my phone. One less cord to worry about hanging aroung our room. I also love the fact that there are two ports so my husband could charge his phone or I could charge my iPad at the same time. Also, I did make one note, if I used my fast charging cord that came with my phone instead of a generic, micro-USB cord, it charged my android a lot better and faster.

This type of product provides all sorts of convenience. Every tech junkie should own one. I would recommend this product to family and friends. I’ll most likely order another one! Get yours here.

Nano Towels Hair Drying Wrap Twisty Towel


Nano Towels Hair Drying Wrap Twisty Towel. The Natural Anti Frizz Wrap - Safer For Your Hair and Dries FAST. Replaces Hair Dryers, Cotton Bath Towels & Microfiber Cloth. One Size Fits All. 10 x 26  

I have waist-length hair and was skeptical that this would even work. I was pleasantly surprised with the results. The towel is very easy to use and does exactly what it says it would do. My hair usually soaks up so much water that even after I think it’s dry enough, water is still dripping down my back. With the nano towel, it absorbed the water pretty well and my hair didn’t post-drip like it normally does when I’m combing it afterward. I normally use two different towels to dry my hair after a shower but with this towel, I only need this nano towel. If used correctly, the towel absorbs a lot of the water from your hair.

I’ve been happy with the plush towel. Anyone with long and/or thick hair would certainly appreciate this product. I would recommend this to family and friends. Get yours here.

Big Ant Knee Pillow Orthopedic Leg Pillow


       

I found this knee pillow to super helpful, especially when I sleep on my side. It was smaller than I expected, but still does its job. Most comparable pillows I’ve seen in local retail stores, seem cushier and larger. This knee pillow is still helpful despite its size. Regardless, I like that the cover is removable for easy washing. I used the pillow a couple of nights but it ended up on the floor by morning. Now my daughter uses it. The knee pillow seems to work fine for her and she wakes up with it at least still on the bed. The knee pillow is what it is for temporary relief.

Again, it helps temporarily but I wouldn’t recommend it for long-term use. Maybe people with smaller legs would appreciate this product more than those built like me who are thicker. It’s great for a little while. Get yours here.

Circo Mini Portable Real Time GPS Tracker by Foxcat Ltd.


This is a great tool to own if you want to track your kids, pet, etc. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get it to work well with the SIM card I had. I had to purchase a pre-paid one on Amazon to use with this device which is not a bad thing, just a couple more steps than expected to get it to work the way I wanted it to.

There’s a video on YouTube that helps you set it up to use right out of the box. I think it will be hit-and-miss, depending on where you are located. It wasn’t easy to always maintain a signal, but when it does work, it’s wonderful.

For those of you who have an interest in something like this, you can find an affordable one here.
