US Art Supply Jewelescent 60 Color Gel Pen Set Review

Wow this gel pen set is amazing! There are so many interesting and vivid colors. They pretty much write and color in beautifully. I only had an issue with about 3 of them but they might need a little more coaxing on different paper. I think the mixed colors are an interesting concept. I didn't have any issue with them bleeding and they are super precise. My favorite gel pens were the "glittery" ones. They had just the right amount of sparkle to them but still kept their pigment which is important. You can definitely use these wide array of colors for special art pieces. I love this large set so much. This would make such a great Christmas gift for the artist in your family.

  • ULTIMATE SET OF 60 UNIQUE GEL PENS: Incredible vibrant and bold colored assortment of superior artist quality gel pens that include Classic, Glitter, Metallic, Neon, Pastel and Swirl Colors. Super smooth writing every time. Safe for children. Perfect for the young aspiring artist to the established art professional.
  • PROFESSIONAL QUALITY: Pens are non-toxic and acid-free with superior archival quality long lasting vibrant inks that don't smear, fade or skip. Exceptional writing pens that provide consistent free-flowing ink with a smooth glide that allows you to create perfect lines with every use. Strong durable 0.8 to 1.0 mm tips.

101 uses for Coconut oil with Cocozia Organic Virgin Coconut Oil

I've tried many different kinds of coconut oil and this one smells really nice compared to some of the others. It has a very fresh coconut scent. The jars were sealed properly which left me with very fresh and high quality coconut oil. I prefer to use this stuff for DIY product making at home such as body butter, lip balms and soap. It melts as it should and hardens up fine at both temperature settings. I haven't used this in cooking but this would be excellent for searing since it's a lot healthier to use. I'm happy with this fine product and it should last me a long time.

Titanium Flat Iron Digital Hair Straightener by Isa Professional

I can't believe how amazing this hair straightener is! It's so sleek and holds very well. I usually need to straighten my hair for about 20 minutes so comfort is very important to me. Not only should it be comfortable to hold but it should be easy to use. You simply plug in your straightener and turn on the power button. I love how when its plugged in the LCD screen will tell you that it's off or display the temperature for you. I always turn it up to the max temperature of 450 degrees. My hair is very thick and can get so frizzy. I was just floored at the job this straightener did in the 20 minutes. I also want to mention that I started out with wet hair fresh from a shower. It dried my hair no problem and made it so silky smooth. I feel so much more confident with the gorgeous looking hair this straightener gives me. I also tested it with feathering out my bangs which is did in one curved pass. The whole time it didn't grab my hairs either which I will attribute to the slight curved shape and point tip on it. Such a simple and small straightener that gets the job done correctly. I am in love with my new straightener.

* MIRROR Titanium plates 
* Neon background LCD display
* 265 to 450 Fahrenheit (130 to 230 Celsius)
* Fast and safe straightening, curls, waves
* 360 degree no tangle cord
* Full 2 year warranty

Golden Groundhog 1000 Assorted World of Warcraft Trading Cards With Rares and Foils

I've been playing World of Warcraft for 10 long years now and I honestly enjoy everything about it. These cards are amazing to have even if you don't play the trading card game. I already know most of all the lore and have seen a lot of this card art in the new app game based off of this called Hearthstone. All of the cards here are in excellent condition and would be great to make plenty of decks with. It's a big mix and match from many of the different themed packs they have put out throughout the years. I will point out that you shouldn't expect surprise loot cards (For in game vanity items EX: Spectral Tiger Mount)  in here because they weren't present in my lot and I doubt they intend to include those. Nonetheless, I was very happy going through all my wonderful cards and reading through various flavor texts. I may end up taking all the card clones and doing geeky crafting with them. You'll love this lot for sure if you're a big Blizzard fan. #GoldenGroundhogWOWLots

  • 1000 Assorted World Of Warcraft Cards!
  • Includes Rares & Foils!
  • Cards Are Near Mint/Mint!
  • Great Variety!
  • A Lot of Cards For Cheap
