Nature Health D-Gas Natural Anti-Gas, Digestive Aid and Gas Relief Review



Just a quick little post on these amazing pills by Nature Health. I am a big sufferer of bloating. I can't have too much soda or I swear I blow up all crazy like. The pressure can really get bad and be totally uncomfortable to handle. I've tried other products like Gas-X but I swear it doesn't really do much for me. So, when I started taking these pills I was not expecting them to work much of anything either. I was proven wrong when I tried them out. I just took two pills before my can of soda and to my surprise I had no crazy bloating. I finally was able to enjoy my can of soda in peace...it was a miracle!


The pills themselves are very easy to swallow. You can definitely smell them though and I can really catch the smell of the cumin. I can get the cooling sensation of peppermint though once it goes down.
There are no artificial colors, flavor or sweetners, no sugar, no preservatives, no additives, no lactose, no soy, no gluten and no salt.
You should definitely give these pills a shot if you are always dealing with massive bloating like myself. #DGASNature

Stark Cut Resistant Gloves Review



I got to try out this product from Stark which are cut resistant gloves. Cut-resistant gloves are designed to protect hands from direct contact with sharp edges such as glass, metal, ceramics and other materials. These seem to be marketed and geared towards people who cook which is most of us. I think I fell in love with the look of these gloves because they reminded me of chain mail type of gloves and I'm a big geek for medieval things. Anyway, I decided to try these out while I was preparing potatoes for dinner one night.


The gloves are very comfortable and fit snugly on my hands.I was able to use my potato peeler without having to worry about snagging my nail or skin on it. I also was able to chop everything efficiently with once again nothing to worry about. This isn't limited to the kitchen and can be used outside in the yard when having to deal with branches or foliage in general. Have to use a box cutter for extensive work? You can use these gloves with it so you don't cut yourself. I have used the box cutter so many times only to realize later I cut myself about half a million times. They are like paper cuts and they hurt so bad! You don't want to have to deal with that.  #starksafe

So you can get these gloves for any task you may need to watch your hands with. They work great!

3D Fiber Lash Mascara Set by Mia Adora Review


I got to try out this 3D Fiber lash mascara set by Mia Adore. I have been seeing all the craze with these 3D fiber lashes on Instagram for a while now and was intrigued. They would show someone with their regular lashes and then a really dramatic lash look after they used their product. I honestly thought some of the after shots look rather ridiculous.


So here you have two mascara looking containers. One holds the magnifying gel and the other has the natural 3D fibers. All the directions are shown inside the case and it's pretty simple to do. You just have to put the magnifying gel on your lashes about 15-20 strokes. After that you put on the 3d fibers while the gel is still wet so it sticks on. You will need to use about 10-15 strokes on the fibers. You then wait 20 seconds for that to dry and then add more magnifying gel to set everything.



So basically here is my look before using the Mia Adore 3D Fiber Lash Mascara in the middle picture. Everything else next to it is after me applying just one little coat of the 3D fiber lashes. You can go back for a heavier look but I like how it came out with just the one coat. I'm not one for the big fancy heavy look. You have to make sure to do all the steps properly though and watch because some of the fibers may fall down. I would suggest doing foundation after this step and doing eyeliner before it.  I think this product worked really well to show off a more dramatic lash especially when you pair it with some dark black eye liner. By no means am I some makeup guru so anyone can do this look easily and it comes out super cute.

Sun Si'belle Broad Spectrum Mineral Moisturizing Sunscreen SPF 30, tinted, with antioxidants, 3.3oz BB / CC cream Review


I was so excited to get to try this wonderful new product I discovered from Sweetsation Therapy. It's a tinted sun screen which acts as a BB/CC Cream. I honestly prefer these types of light cover up on my skin because I can't stand heavy foundation that does nothing but make me feel itchy and irritated. Also, I feel like foundation can look too caked on and doesn't give off a natural feel.


I found this product to be very light and blended into my skin nicely. It's Paraben free, gluten free and nut oil free which is awesome. It has a very pleasant scent kind of like aloe and doesn't smell like sunscreen at all. I have been using this for about a week and a half now daily and I love it! My skin feels and looks great. 

I wanted to do a before and after shot so this is my before shot without the SPF. 


Here goes my after shot. It's a very slight difference with the sunscreen. It worked well to make the redness around my nose less apparent. I also used it under and over my eyelids to help cover some darkness and light veins. I'm in love with this beneficial tinted sunscreen and I know you will be too! Protect your skin from the sun and look great at the same time...it's a win win situation. Make sure you use this at least 20 minutes prior to sun exposure for it to work properly. Also, you might have to reapply with long hours of sun exposure to take the tube with you if you know you are going to be out for a long time.

Dot&Dot Large Green Packing Cubes Review



I had the awesome opportunity to try out these large packing cubes by Dot&Dot. Dot&Dot is a really cool company that sells all different sizes of packing cubes which also come in many different colors to suit your taste. As you can see in the picture this is how it comes packaged in a clear plastic zip-lock type of bag. I LOVE this because I can actually use this clear bag to store more things away. I will be using that to put away crafting materials for sure. The set comes in four pieces plus the clear bag to store them or other things if you wish. These are made for traveling but I really just like them for home organization.


I love the whole design of these packing cubes. The mesh material makes it easy to look through to see what's in the bag and gives it breathability. The zippers go all the way around so you can lock everything in the way you want to. I like to keep it open at the bottom to pack my stuff and then swing the zippers all the way around and to the top. The mesh handle at the top is comfortable and makes it easy to carry around with you. The color on my cube is vibrant and looks super attractive.


I wanted to use my packing cubes for storing things away that were stuffed unorganized in my dresser drawers. I had my summer/spring clothing still taking space with my long sleeved Fall/winter clothing.


I decided to put all my sleeveless tops and bathing suits into one bag to which there was more than enough space for it all. I do wear a size small though so all my things are tiny. In another bag I decided to put all my tshirts for the spring/summer time. I also filled a third bag with all my lingerie pieces. I am just thoroughly impressed with the storage capacity these cubes have. Everything fit well and I was able to put them away in my closet for the proper seasons to use them. Once it hits Spring/Summer I can then switch out my Fall/Winter wear so that I have more room in my dresser for what I need.

I wholeheartedly recommend these cubes to anyone looking to gain more room and organization for their clothing or home linens. It works and looks great. I am so glad I got to try these out and look forward to seeing what some of their other products can do for me. #packingcubes

YALMEH Glory Eye Brightening Gel Review + Giveaway



I got to try out this eye brightening gel by Yalmeh. I'm always looking for a product that will completely erase my dark under eye circles but I think I am asking for too much lol. My dark circles mostly come from terrible sleep patterns and inherited genes. I will say that eye brightening gels like this do help to keep my eyes refreshed. My skin gets a little darker in the mornings under my eyes and red so this soothes that problem.


The gel is very springy. It smells like fresh cucumbers which most eye gels do. What I do is take a little bit on my pinky finger and dab it gently onto the skin. It absorbs relatively quickly and leaves my skin feeling so great. This is probably the first eye gel I have that is in a tube like this. I really like the precision tip on it. Also, you aren't just limited to the eye area. This is a great product to use on your whole face. I like to use it on my feet to keep them moisturized and looking radiant.

I love how this product is gluten-free, vegan friendly, and made in the USA.  #EyeGel

Here's a list of the ingredients contained in this product

Ingredients
Tea of Wildcrafted Taraxacum Officinale (Dandelion), Wildcrafted Arnica Montana (Arnica), Organic Curcuma Longa (Turmeric) and Organic Calendula Officinalis (Calendula), Organic Aloe Barbadensis Leaf (Aloe), Matrixyl 3000, Palmitoyl Triepeptide-3, Kosher Vegetable Glycerin, Globularia Cordifolia Callus Culture Extract (Plant Stem Cells), Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber Hydrosol), Organic Simmondsis Chinensis (Jojoba Oil), Cassia Angustifolia Seed Polysaccharide (botanical hyaluronic acid), Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), Hydroxyethyl Cellulose, Carrageenan Gum, CoQ10, Silk Amino Acid Blend (Sodium L-Pyrrolidone Carboxylate, Sodium Lactate, L'Arginine, L-Aspartic Acid, L-Pyrrolidonecarboxylic Acid, Glycine, L-Alanine, L-Serine, L-Valine, L-Proline, L-threonine, L-Isoleucine, L-Histidine, L-Phenylalanine), Wildcrafted Vinca Major (Periwinkle), Organic Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice), Wildcrafted Euphrasia Officinalis (Eye Bright), Wildcrafted Ganoderma Lucidum (Reishi), Organic Centella Asiatica (Gotu Kola), Boswellia Serrata (Frankincense), Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Organic Centella Asiatica (Gotu Kola), Wildcrafted Equisetum Arvense (Horsetail), Wildcrafted Geranium Maculatum (Wild Geranium), Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Ethyl Hexyl Glycerin.

hyperbiotics PRO-Kids Children's Probiotics Review



I love hyperbiotics so when I saw that they made the same product for kids I was all over it. Every kid should be taking vitamins and probiotics because it will help keep all the yucky away from attending school daily. I can't express how many times my kids have gotten sick and it's just like a vicious cycle that never ends. Probiotics are live microorganisms that help maintain the balance of good and bad bacteria in the digestive tract. Since the digestive tract makes up more than 70 percent of our immune systems, when it’s healthy, our bodies are, too. The more of the good probiotics we have in our bodies, the better our overall health is. Immunity is perhaps the most compelling reason many experts recommend kids take probiotics, as more and more research shows a link between a healthy GI tract and a strong immune system.


The Pro-Kids probiotics are so tiny and easy to take. My kids have no problem swallowing them and love taking them.It's the ideal probiotics for kids ages 4 and up. It's 100% NATURAL & SUGAR FREE. I also like how these are lactose and gluten free. They are 100% vegetarian.


I highly suggest having your kids take hyperbiotics PRO-Kids along with their multi-vitamins to keep them nice and healthy. #BestProbioticForKids

Moderna Artisan Series Double Wall 2 oz Beverage & Espresso Shot Glasses - Set of 4 Drinking Glasses Review


Woohoo, another wonderful product by Ozeri. These Moderna glasses are so beautiful. They are the cutest little glasses I have ever seen. They are heat and shatter resistant boro-silicate glasses. These glasses are perfect for entertaining. They are stronger than common glasses and I would know this because I went through a case of glasses I purchased at Walmart which didn't last much of 1 year. I think there were about 15 glasses to that set and I just have 1 out of all of them left...it's crazy! 


These glasses come packed very well if you are worried about the shipping process. None of my glasses came chipped and I used them perfectly. I love the little dimples in them which makes them extra easy to hold.


I think these will be great to use for a fun Holiday concoction of sorts. Maybe some green ooze Halloween drinks? It's definitely enough space for a nice refreshing drink as I have used myself for a quickie. I think these are great for mini cocktails as well. I'm not a big drinker so these are the perfect sizes for drinky drinks. These glasses are also very easy to clean. I would love to actually use these for mini desserts at some point because the size of them are perfect for it. I love my durable mini glasses and can't wait to share them at family plus friend gatherings. #Ozeri #Shots #Glasses

Hyperbiotics PRO-15 Advanced Strength for Digestive System and Colon Health Review



I'm just going to outright say that I have been taking pro biotics for a long while now. I feel like they are really benefiting my urinary tract the most. If you are suffering from constant UTI's I really recommend this.  A lot of people take them for stomach issues which I do also have a big problem with bloating. I can't have a bottle of soda without blowing up.

You can learn more about probiotics specifically in this video



So here are a few more things probiotics can help with
  • Treating childhood diarrhea
  • Treating ulcerative colitis
  • Treating necrotizing enterocolitis, a type of infection and inflammation of the intestines mostly seen in infants
  • Preventing antibiotic-associated diarrhea and infectious diarrhea
  • Preventing pouchitis, an inflammation of the intestines that can follow intestinal surgery
  • Treating and preventing eczema associated with cow’s milk allergy
  •  Helping the immune system
The Yale University panel of experts concluded that probiotics may be helpful in other ways, although the evidence is less convincing. These include:
  • Treating symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome
  • Treating vaginitis
  • Treating diarrhea caused by C. difficile bacteria
  • Treating Crohn's disease


These advanced strength pills are quite large for me. I have trouble swallowing pills so I had to cut these in half in order to take them in properly. I do prefer their smaller round counterparts. I only take 1 pill per day but you can take up to three a day for the intense repair.  #advancedstrengthprobiotic

What's great about these probiotics are that they lactose and gluten free.

Be Natural Organics Organic Cranberry & Orange Soap, Shimmer Illuminating Dry Oil Reviews


I got the opportunity to try out two products from the Be Natural Organics online shop. I just want to mention that their customer service is top notch and my things came perfectly packaged. Now on to my thoughts.



I decided to go with the Cranberry & Orange soap bar because it's Fall time now and I was looking for something to put me in that mood of the season. Now, I am not a 100% organic product user but I do like to try some organic products here and there because usually they seem to have a better quality to them. That was definitely the case with this soap bar. You can see all the wonderful little pieces inside the soap bar of what I can only assume is the cranberry. It's funny though because I caught the scent of cinnamon-apple-pumpkin spiciness. It was just the most wonderful smelling soap bar ever. When you try such an amazing handmade soap bar like this you don't want to go back to regular soap bars. The lather was perfect and the scent stayed on my skin long after my shower. The scent will just engulf the shower and your senses. I had a great experience and will continue using this soap bar for sure.

Soap Bar Ingredients:
  Saponified olea europaea organic (extra virgin cold pressed olive) oil, cocos nucifera organic (coconut) oil, elaeis guineensis organic (palm) oil, distilled water, eugenia caryophyllus (clove) oil, citrus paradisi (pink grapefruit) oil, citrus aurantium dulcis (sweet orange) oil, vaccinium macrocarpon (cranberry) fruit, theobroma cacao (cocoa) seed butter, bixa orellana (annatto) seed extract

You can buy your own Cranberry & Orange Soap bar herehttp://www.benaturalorganics.com/product-p/ocos.htm

 

The size of this shimmer illuminating dry oil is really big. You can use this for a long while and not run out for a long time.  The bottle is attractive and I love how pretty it looks amongst my other beauty products on my dresser. You can use this on your face, body and hair. I opted to use this over my eyelids because I wanted a nice shimmer style with my neutral makeup look.

If you lay it on thick this is how it looks on your skin as you can see on my hand. Above you can see it lightly spread on my eyelids. I would probably finish off this look by giving my top eyelids a cat eye and filling in my eyebrows ( they're kind of thin and sparse looking ugh) a little bit but nothing more because I want that sweet golden Fall time look. I love this shimmer so much because it's very pigmented unlike others I have tried before. There is sort of like a citrus type scent to it that smells so nice. Every girl needs some shimmer to make her feel like a pretty princess and this is it.

Ingredients: 
Macadamia ternifolia seed oil, dicaprylyl carbonate, caprylic/capric triglycerides, coconut alkanes and coco-caprylate/caprate, prunus amygdalus dulcis oil (sweet almond oil), simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, rubus idaeus (raspberry) seed oil, borago officinalis seed oil, silica, citrus paradisi (grapefruit) peel oil, citrus sinensis dulcis (orange) peel oil, sceracarya birrea (marula) oil, tocopherol (vitamin E), mica (CI 77019), titanium dioxide (CI 77891), iron oxide (CI 77491).

Spare Fuel - The Emergency Fuel Solution Review



So I came across this product and had to have it. Just as it is described it's an emergency fuel solution. How many times have people run out of gas driving on the road and needed to call for help. This eliminates that problem. You just keep it in your car trunk so that it's ready to use. You also have to make sure to use it while your engine is still warm or it won't work properly. You will get the same fuel mileage as regular fuel. Then, you will be able to drive to the nearest gas station and fill up.


There's a nice seal under the cap but I didn't want to break it because I plan on storing mine for a different purpose. You see what intrigues me about this fuel is it's use in other types of emergency situations. I have the mentality of a prepper. Generators use fuel so this would be perfect backup for that type of thing. These bottles are convenient to store around and will last a long time. For car use, storing gas in your car is just not a good idea. Storing Spare Fuel in your car is completely safe and won’t explode even in the harshest of conditions. Spare Fuel works in any gas-powered engine (it is not appropriate for diesel powered engines).


I recommend this for people to keep in their car and a few to keep inside their home to be prepared for bad situations in general. You never know when disaster will strike but you can make the difference and be ready for it. #sparefuel
