Adovia Mineral Lift Serum Review

  • Achieve An Instant Lift and Anti Aging Effects on Your Skin
  • Delivers Anti Wrinkle Results Over Time
  • Vitamin C - Also Contains a High Concentration of Vitamin C for Anti Wrinkle Antioxidant Skin Protection
  • Dead Sea Salt - Formulated with a High Concentration of Dead Sea Minerals and Salt - 21 Minerals Essential for Skin Health and Beauty
  • Non-Oily Moisturizer Delivers Deep Hydration and Nutrient Absorption

  • Review: This serum is quite thick, it has more of a lotion consistency. The natural dead sea salt minerals it contains supposedly lifts and helps prevent wrinkles. I can't say anything about its anti-wrinkle properties as I do not have any fine lines, but this is definitely a rich, concentrated serum to use under your moisturizer. I think it hydrated my skin, but it almost felt tacky because of the cream-like consistency.

    However, it did not make me break out like some serums/lotions have in the past, so I might continue using it just to see if it has any long-term effects. Hopefully I'll have good results!

    Number One Nutrition Krill Oil Omega 3 Dietary Supplement Review

  • Do you want to improve your HEART HEALTH? Lower CHOLESTEROL levels? Prevent heart disease and STROKE? If you can say YES to any of these questions or if you just want to live a HEALTHIER life you NEED Number One Krill. Omega 3 rich fishes do not produce Omega 3. They consume it when they eat krill, a small shrimp species.
  • THE BEST VALUE! We believe EVERYONE should benefit from taking the highest quality Krill Oil. We have the BEST QUALITY Krill Oil out there! TRY NOW! You have NOTHING to lose and EVERYTHING to GAIN.
  • Dr. Oz says, "I never thought I would find something that would FIGHT diseases as well as fish oil, but there is a NEW source of Omega 3 that in some ways may be even BETTER". Dr. Oz also says that when taking Fish oil pills "Not as much [Omega 3] is released and it doesn`t get into the cells as much". Whereas when taking Krill Oil "The Omega 3 is going to get through the blood vessels more readily and into the cells faster." It is believed that a person needs to consume 3 times more fish oil than Krill Oil in order to obtain the same benefits.
  • EASY to do it! Take two SMALL and EASY TO SWALLOW Krill Oil capsules and be on your way to a healthier life! Number One Krill is made with PREMIUM krill oil. Made in the USA in a FDA approved manufacturing facility. 100% SAFE. MUCH research went into perfecting this product for the best performance. • MORE than just HEART HEALTH! Krill Oil is the ONLY ONE that contains Astaxanthin, a powerful antioxidant which combats free radicals and crosses the brain barrier. Protecting eye, brain and nervous system from free radical damage. Regular Omega 3 intake is also associated with fighting arthritis symptoms, premenstrual symptoms, preventing depression.

  • My review: I am glad to have gotten to try this krill oil. I recently made the switch from fish oil to krill oil because of the added benefits of krill oil (such as the natural antioxidants) and the higher omega 3 oil content, which is known to help prevent heart disease and lower cholesterol.

    Number One Nutrition Krill Oil comes in a medium-sized bottle with 60 red softgel capsules that contain 500mg each, but it is recommended to take two capsules daily, for a 1000mg dosage.

    These are smooth, clear gel-like softgels that are easy to swallow and thankfully don't stink like fish oil softgels do! I will definitely taking two of these a day, maybe just one to make my bottle last longer. I definitely recommend this brand, especially since Amazon is selling it for $22.99.

    Adovia Mineral Eye Gel Review

    • Our Promise: Your Eyes will Look 10 Years Younger or Your Money Back! - Reduce Puffiness Under and Around The Eyes - Makes Eyes Appear Years Younger and Radiant!
    • Gets Rid of Dark Circles Under Eyes - Your Eyes Will Look More Youthful and Refreshed!
    • Formulated Specifically for The Genltle Area Around the Eyes - this Light Eye Gel Absorbs Quickly into Skin for Deep Hydration
    • Dead Sea Salt Delivers an Immediate Infusion of Dead Sea Minerals - Essential for Proper Skin Health and Beauty
    • Contains Vitamin C which Delivers Powerful Antioxidants Deep Into Skin Cells

    Review: Made in Israel using skin-moisturizing minerals and dead sea extracts, Adovia's eye gel has a creamy, cool consistency and is meant to be applied all around and under the eyes to prevent dark circles and puffiness. Honestly, dark circles are not a huge concern for me so I didn't see a huge reduction in dark circles, but it definitely is a super-hydrating product. The skin around my eyes felt well moisturized and overall you could tell it looked brighter (and no cold-weather flaking!).

    The fragrance is light and barely there, and it looks white but applies clear, since it is a gel. Beware it does make your eyes a little oily-looking, even if you use just a little, so you may want to limit this to your nighttime skin routine. I have been using this every night before bed, and recommend you do too!

    Rainbow Bandz Refill Pack Review

    Are you tired of cheap Loom Bands that stink and break easily? Are you looking for the highest quality rainbow band refill pack out there? 

    Authentic Rainbow Bandz - Huge Set of 5400 Brightest Colored, Strongest, Individually Packaged Rubber Band Refills - Compatible with All Loom Kits 

    Kids have been going crazy over the Rainbow Loom phenomenon sweeping the nation but they want brighter colors and better quality so we designed this refill set for those moms/dads who want the very best, and don't want their child playing with rubber bands made from harmful chemicals and that smell like petroleum. 

    Rainbow Bandz offer the best quality rainbow band refills on the market that don't stink and will not easily break like other cheap imitators products leaving your kid frustrated and disappointed. 

    Review: I was SO impressed by this Rainbow Bandz refill pack. My sister and I used the Rainbow Bandz loom, and loved it, so we knew this refill pack would be fantastic. The quality of the bands is excellent; the vibrant colors don't "fade" when stretched, and they are very durable as well. Some of them are cut unevenly, but that isn't a huge problem as most of them looked fine.

    There are 9 different colors, and 600 bands of each: a whopping 5400 bands total. This is a pack you don't want to miss out on.

    My only concern was that they are made in China, as it explicitly says on the package, but since they are latex-free I think the quality should be fine.

    MuscleCare Extra-Strength Roll-On Review

    MuscleCare Extra Strength Roll-on is the strongest all natural, scientifically based, topical analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and anti-spasmodic for over the counter sales. Professional TherapyMuscle Care Roll-on combines menthol and camphor for immediate pain relief with magnesium, glucosamine, MSM and chondroitin to relax muscle tension, improve circulation, promote healing and reset the muscle in its normal resting length. The roll-on offers the convenience of applying MuscleCare in those hard to reach areas of the back without using your hands. This product is great for quick application in the workplace or in an athletic arena. The Extra Strength Roll-on is effective in as little as 30 seconds. This helps you to reduce pain and get back to the things you love! 

    My review: This product sounded like a godsend to me because I suffer from lower back pain that gets really bad after I exercise. MuscleCare isn't going to cure your muscle pains, but it is a temporary solution for sore muscles, so I wasn't expecting this to be a miracle product or anything. The roll-on bottle is very convenient to use, and it's easy too—it doesn't get all over your hands and clothes, and you can use it on the go as well.

    The formula smells like menthol—like an ace bandage you stick on your back—and it has a cooling sensation. It definitely felt good and soothing on my skin, but I can't really say if it actually alleviated pain. I used it after my workouts for a little over a week and each time I liked the feeling, but my back muscles (both lower and upper) continued to hurt, even after the next day. (Usually my back pain can be alleviated with stretching).

    I might try this on other body parts such as my abs or legs sometime to see if I get better results. Overall, it's not a disappoint product but I can't exactly say it's "clinically proven" either.

    Poppy Austin Vitamin C Serum Review (temporary link)

    This is not an actual review as I have not received my vitamin C serum yet, despite my multiple messages to the company about the problem. I even heard back from a representative saying a new coupon code would be sent to me so I could re-purchase the product, but none ever came. Tomoson has strict review deadlines otherwise bloggers are impacted negatively. I tried to resolve the issue but the company has not responded very quickly, nor have they given me sufficient time for the review (obviously). I will update this link with a real review once I receive and try out the product.

    HSI Argan Oil Review

    Discover the Moroccan 'liquid gold', the product your hair needs for constant nourishment and incredible shine! The essential nutrients contained in this magic-in-a-bottle product are meant to give your hair a very healthy look, lots of shine and velvet smoothness. This is a leave-in treatment conditioner which feels really light on your hair, without building up residue or being greasy.

    HSI Professional recommends the use of Argan Oil as an extra thermal protection before styling your hair with tools such as the flat iron, the hair dryer or the curling iron. It is suitable for all hair types, and you will just be sorry you have not discovered it before! It tames the frizz, it gives a lovely scent to your hair and it makes it soft and shiny. It really seems like your hair is in for a fabulous treat!

    My review: HSI Argan Oil is quite thick in formula, much thicker than pure argan oils I have tried. Its texture is almost like that of a cooking oil, so using too much could make your hair greasy. There is a pleasant hair product scent to it, because it has added fragrance, and it spreads out nicely in your hair, not creating clumps. I like this because it didn't make my hair greasy!

    I can't say anything about added shine, but as a leave-in treatment, it definitely did make my hair softer and easier to brush (I usually have slightly wavy, very tangly hair). I noticed this has lots of added ingredients so it is NOT all-natural. If you are looking for an all-natural pure argan oil, this product is not it.

    However, because it worked pretty well I would use it again. My biggest complaint is the packaging. You're only supposed to use a few drops and smooth it through your wet hair, but there is no dropper or pump; it's just a screw-top bottle, which means you need to POUR the oil into your palm. Obviously if you pour an oil, you're not going to get a perfect 2-3 drops; you're going to get a little handful. Fortunately, I had some extra droppers from vitamin C serums laying around, and one of them fit perfectly on the mouth of this glass bottle. You are going to want to invest in a screw-on dropper bottle or pump cap if you want to use this product correctly and not waste it.

    The Rebel Cowboy's Quadruplets Book Blast

Click on the tour banner to see the other stops on the tour. Remember, the more stops you visit and comment, the better your chances to win.


    Justin Morant can't believe he answered an online dating ad! Turns out, beautiful Mackenzie Hawthorne is looking for a ranch foreman, not a husband. Good thing, because marriage isn't in the injured bull rider's future. Justin is happy to take up the cause of saving the Hanging H ranch—and then there's the bonus of playing stand-in father to the sexy single mom's four angelic newborns.

    Mackenzie doesn't know what miracle brought Justin to Bridesmaids Creek, Texas, but she'd be a fool to fall for the hunky cowboy who wears his rebel status like a badge of honor. Justin's a natural with her daughters and a whiz at ranching...yet one day she knows he's going to gallop off into the sunset. Unless, of course, the marriage-minded townspeople get their hands on him!

    Now enjoy an excerpt:

    Justin slept off and on, dozing in the room with the babies. It was weird how much he found himself enjoying taking care of them. As a man who’d never been interested in having children—not one bit—he was surprised by how Mackenzie’s four little daughters tugged on his heartstrings.

    He hated the idea of leaving them—all of them. And, somehow, he even hated the idea of Frog staying behind to take his place. Or any of the three men Ty was bringing on to replace him, for that matter.

    The only reason he was leaving with Ty was because Ty had brought him here in the first place. He owed it to him out of a sense of brotherhood. Ty wouldn’t ask him if he didn’t need him. Mackenzie didn’t really need him—not like Ty did.

    He needed to talk to Ty a bit more, dig into the mission to settle the questions in his mind. But the thing that unsettled his mind the most was how much he hated the idea of three men he didn’t know all that well roaming around the Hanging H and falling for Mackenzie and the girls.

    Just as he was beginning to fall for them.

    Whether he liked it or not, that was the truth. Justin closed his eyes as he rocked in the chair. The tiny night-light sent a soft glow over the room. An occasional baby snuffle or sigh reached him, the sound somehow comforting and not intimidating at all, not the way he’d thought it would be. During his wilder, crazier rodeo days, the idea of a family had been distinctly unappealing.

    Mackenzie was recently divorced. No doubt the last thing she wanted was another man in her life. He couldn’t blame her if that was the way she felt.

    At dawn, when Betty Harper appeared in the nursery, Justin felt strangely rested. He smiled at Jade’s mother. “Good morning.”

    “Go get some rest. I’ll take over from here. Mackenzie said the babies didn’t even move last night.”

    He felt like he hadn’t, either. In fact, he couldn’t remember the last time he’d felt so relaxed. “I thought I was awake all night. I didn’t even realize Mackenzie came in the nursery.”

    Betty smiled. “I checked on you at five. Everybody was sound asleep, which is a first for the girls. They probably feel comforted with a man’s presence around. Babies do that sometimes. You have a nice deep voice with is probably soothing to them.”

    She disappeared from the room. Justin rose and stretched. Haven peered up at him from her blanket, and he had the uncanny notion that she was watching him. Did babies see anything at this tender age?

    “Hello, little one,” he said, approaching her crib. Gently he picked her up, held her close. “Good morning to you, too.”

    He kissed the top of her head, breathed in the sweet baby freshness of her skin, the scent of baby powder.

    “Hi,” Mackenzie said, her voice soft.

    He turned and saw she was wide-awake and looking refreshed. “You’re up bright and early.”

    “I got a lot more sleep than I have since before I became pregnant.” She came to take Haven from him, and he smelled an entirely different smell: strawberry shampoo, delicate floral soap, sexy woman.

    His heart did one of those funny flip-flops he’d gotten used to feeling around her.

    “Thanks for watching them last night.” She gazed up at him. “I think I slept so well because I knew you were standing guard.”

    Oh, boy. There went the heart. “It was no problem. Part of the job.”

    “Not part of the job I hired you to do.” She looked at him funny.

    He backed up a step when he realized he was staring at her pink, glossy lips. “It’s the job Frog and Fellows are applying for.”

    “That’s Ty’s bright idea. And by now, you know Ty can be a bit of a squirrel.” She smiled. “Babysitting isn’t part of your job description. But thank you.”

    Warmth expanded in his chest at her smile. He wondered if he’d ever met a woman he was so blindingly attracted to—and decided in a hurry that was a terrible thought to have about his boss. Definitely a dead end. There was no way on this planet he had any business being attracted to her.

    “I’m going to get some coffee. You want a cup?”

    “No, thank you. You go on.”

    He nodded and turned to leave.

    Turned back around, met her gaze. Started to say that sitting up with her daughters hadn’t been work; he hadn’t done it because of Frog and Friends. He’d done it because he’d wanted to. Wanted to make her happy, help her out.

    But it was a bad idea to make such a confession. No purpose to it at all, and he didn’t do anything unless he knew the purpose.

    Shutting his stupid yap tight before it could say weird, mushy things, he left.

    Skin Secret Derma Roller Review

    STIMULATES COLLAGEN PRODUCTION Collagens have great tensile strength, and provide these body structures with the ability to withstand forces that stretch them. Collagens consist of three polypeptide chains arranged in a triple helix, and are bundled together in fibers. This can be used with collagen creams, collagen lotions, collagen supplements to amplify the collagen production and improve skin quality

    HELPS ELIMINATE SCARS INLUDING ACNE SCARS scars will become less vissible over time, including acne scars. This is a good alternative to invasive laser surgery. This product works with othe acne treatments by allowing product to penetrate skin

    REDUCES APPEARANCE OF FINE LINES AND WRINKLES this will help eliminate bags under the eye, skin discoloarion, large pores. The skin will appear firmer. Works well with skin lotions, skin creams and skin serums like ascorbic acid vitamin e hyalurunic acid.

    REDUCES CELLULITE AND STRETCH MARKS. Reduces the appearance of stretch marks and cellulite. This is without liposouction or other invasive procedures.

    My review: You're supposed to use this product on your face to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, but I didn't use it on my face for four good reasons:

    1. I was too much of a wuss. These are tiny needles you're poking into your skin!!
    2. I don't have fine lines or wrinkles.
    3. This product should not be used on acne, and having oily and acne-prone skin, I didn't want to risk using it even when my face was clear
    4. There are virtually no instructions about cleaning or sanitizing the product, and I didn't want to risk my face in case there were any contamination complications
    So, I used it on the inside of my things where I have mild stretch marks from previous weight loss/gain. I don't have cellulite anywhere else, just on the INSIDES of my things, which has always bothered me. The skin there is obviously sensitive, but not as sensitive as my face, so I thought I'd give it a try.

    I only used the roller on one leg to be able to make a comparison with my "control" leg. When rolling, you're supposed to do about 10 strokes in each direction—horizontally, vertically, and diagonally each time. The sensation isn't exactly pain, but it does sting a little, like a sunburn as described in the product claim. No blood was drawn, which was my biggest concern, but then again I'm a huge wuss and I was rolling very lightly. I do not doubt you could draw blood with this thing if you pressed really hard into your skin. *cringe*

    Thankfully I did not experience much redness or swelling, afterwards. I immediately slathered the treated area with a hyaluronic acid serum (for better absorption!), and then my regular body lotion. If I had any cellulite cream available, I would have used that on top of the treated areas. I did not see immediate results; in fact, my legs look exactly the same now, but the product claims say to use it a few times before making a comparison.

    The biggest concern I have is sanitary reasons. You are supposed to clean and sanitize this product before and after each use, but it doesn't tell you how. I am not going to run it under soap and water... how would I ensure complete cleaning? I'm not touching these needles with my bare fingers. I considered rolling it over some rubbing alcohol but am not sure how that would react with the metal. So basically I am scared to reuse it...... hopefully I'll find a solution soon enough.

  • Review: This mask is smooth and smells strongly of eucalyptus oil—so refreshing! It applies very smoothly—you can feel the little mud particles, but it's not so bad in a grainy way. At best, it's a mild exfoliant, which I love. I applied a very thin layer to my entire face, so when it tried, the mud had gotten light and formed a hard layer. I washed it off, and my face was very smooth thanks to the various oils and shea butter.

    I love this product but would not use it regularly as shea butter is comedogenic, and I actually have oily and acne-prone skin. This might work better as a body mask or for people with dry skin that don't have problems with acne.

    LOVELY LASHES Eyelash Curler Review

    Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

    Why Should I Choose Lovely Lashes Eyelash Curler ?
    If you desire gorgeous eyes, you need more than make up. As a lady, you need long, thick and dark eyelashes. I need to add, very importantly that you keep them curly and sexy. Lovely Lashes Eyelash Curler does just that for you.

    ✓ Gentle and Soft Pad Design With Rubber Grip Handle -This handle ensures ease of use. Your hand is now free to concentrate on getting your lashes curled
    Get FULL, SEXY eyelashes today... grab your Lovely Lashes Eye Lash Curler 100% Risk-Free!

    Review: I was pleasantly surprised by how well this eyelash curler works. It has a narrow "clamp", so it gets really close to your lashline and curls eyelashes well. The curl was immediate, I only had to curl each eye a few times, and lasted pretty much the whole day.

    I would recommend curling once, adding a coat of mascara, and then curling once more for maximum results.

    The only drawback was there was slight pinching, unlike the product statement says. The curve of the curler does not fit the shape of my eye exactly so it did hurt a little—my Japonesque and Shu Umura curlers do not have this problem—but that's the price of pain, right? :) I'm definitely glad to have this extra curler handy, I can see myself using it regularly because I'm one of those people who keeps an eyelash curler everywhere! On my makeup vanity, in my purse, in my schoolbag, even in the car!

    StyloPhora Ice Ball Molds Review

    Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

    - Great Ice Breaker at Parties. 
    - Create Healthy Juice ice balls for Kids. 
    - Great Gift Idea.

    Review: I absolutely love the idea of these ice ball molds. Each order is a set of three molds. Each mold is made of smooth, 100% food-grade silicone. I loved how smooth and flexible they were, unlike some of the plastic ice ball mold's I've tried!

    There's a line at the top of the hole where you pour water in to conveniently let you know where to fill the water to. The water line takes into account the expansion of water as it turns to ice, which I thought was thoughtful to include.

    The set comes with a collapsable silicone funnel that fits in the hole at the top perfectly. This was the only thing about the product I didn't like. There was no hole at the bottom of the funnel and I couldn't, for the life of me, figure out how to use it! I felt like an idiot struggling with a funnel LOL! However, I just cut a little hole at the bottom of the silicone to make use of it. Not a huge issue, but I shouldn't have had to do that.

    The molds have a flattened surface (but the insides are a smooth dome, so you get a perfectly round ball of ice) so you can stick them in the freezer without worrying about them rolling around. This is especially useful since the hole at the top would spill water if it rolled around in the freezer!

    Upon freezing, all you have to do is open up the silicone ball, and push the ice ball out. This worked fabulously, to my pleasant surprise, as the molds are very pliable and so the ice just pops out without any fuss. 

    The packaging isn't pretty... it's just a flimsy plastic tube (like a tennis ball can) with Scotch tape haphazardly wrapped around the ends to secure the equally flimsy plastic lids. This would not be impressive for gift giving, I would have liked a better plastic packaging, or maybe for these to be boxed. Otherwise, this is a cool product, great for entertaining and drinking aficionados!

    Natural Stacks Vitamin D3 Review

    Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

    Vitamin D3 plays an integral role in regulating the neuromuscular and immune systems, as well as mood and sleep. It’s also a critical hormone precursor that supports new cell growth and bone formation.
    • 5,000 IU of D3 with 100 mg of Certified Organic Coconut Oil per softgel
    • Coconut Oil aids the absorption of fat-soluble Vitamin D
    • Highly bioavailable form of natural Vitamin D (Cholecalciferol)
    Your body naturally converts sunlight to Vitamin D, but most people don’t get near enough sun exposure (unless you’re an outdoorsy nudist living near the equator).  Natural Stacks Vitamin D3 is a performance essential.

    My review: I'm a lover of vitamin supplements and was eager to try this coconut oil Vitamin D3 softgel. The capsules are very tiny, and a clear-yellowish color. They don't smell or taste like anything, and the size makes them easy to swallow.

    The ingredients list indicates the only factor of D3 component is coconut oil;  basically you are consuming pure coconut oil. I suppose if you normally consume a lot of coconut oil in your diet, you would not need to take Vitamin D3 supplements.

    There are 180 softgels in the bottle, and you take one per day, so that's a 3-month supply, which isn't bad for the price. My only concern is that the general recommended daily dosage of Vitamin D3 is 4000 IU, but these pills offer 5,000 IU. Not a HUGE concern, as these are fat-soluble pills so overdosage won't kill you, but like I said, if you have a diet that already contains lots of Vitamin D3, this product may be unnecessary.

    To my dismay, after opening this bottle, about one-third of the capsules in the bottle clouded up, and I believe the coconut oil inside had hardened up. This is strange because I kept them in a cool, dry place as instructed. I know this isn't a huge issue but at first glance it made me think the capsules had gone bad, and I checked the expiration date (2016, which means it should be safe). However, I think Natural Stacks should find a way to prevent this from happening, as it's unnerving to have a bottle of pills that are half clear, half cloudy.

    Natural Stacks Krill Oil Review

    Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

    Natural Stacks Krill Oil is cold pressed from sustainably harvested Antarctic Krill (tiny shrimp-like crustaceans). Studies suggest that Krill Oil can reduce inflammation, improve brain function, relieve joint pain, and promote heart health.
    Our premium Krill Oil Complex contains:
    • A variety of key nutrients including choline, vitamin A, vitamin e
    • 420 mg of cell-building phospholipids
    • 300 mg of omega-3 fatty acids (150 mg DHA & 90 mg EPA)
    • 1.5 mg of astaxanthin (7X more than most Krill Oil products)
    Natural Stacks Krill Oil features an optimal DHA / EPA ratio and is phosphorylated for superior bio-absorption.

    Review: This is my first time trying a Krill Oil, but I've been an avid taker of fish oil in the past, and apparently krill oil is a better, higher dosage version of fish oil with same the healthy omega-3 fatty acids. I have been taking these for the past couple of weeks—two a day, before a meal—and my bottle is almost running out because each bottle has 60 softgel pills, so it's a monthly supply. I will definitely be looking into purchasing a krill oil for my own, to consume outside of this sample.

    The softgel itself is a dark blue gel color, and is reasonably sized and easy to swallow. What I love is it doesn't have that nasty fishy smell fish oil softgels have, so it's easy to palate. Great for kids too!

    LumenX Ez Grip Bike Light review

    Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

    LumenX Ez Grip Bike Light consists of a front bike light and a rear tail light which can fit and can easily attach to any bike – mountain bike, street bike or children’s bike. It has a high quality silicone material and a water resistant property which makes it great for safety and emergencies.

    LumenX offers the new high quality dual energy efficient LED bike light which are super bright, with 90 lumens and provide up to 150M safe use. For added safety, it has 1 red LED for the rear light and 1 white LED front light. It can be used in Four modes: Constant, Strobe, Disco strobe, Epileptic Fit Strobe.

    The Ez Grip Bike Light has an energy saving feature which can last up to 130 hours of flashing and 25 hours of constant light. It also has an easy integrated clip feature which allows quick mounting and fits around any handlebar, seat post and frame tube.

    Guaranteed to have the best LEDs which offers the best performance bike light at a minimal cost. We are dedicated to maintain our high quality standards in compliance with ANAI (American National Standards Institute), an industry standard for flashlight categories.

    My review:
    This was a great LED bike light, I like how it's bright and flashes well but you don't have to worry about replacing the battery or having the light go out while you're out for a nighttime bike ride!

    You have to click the center of the light, and it has four settings: constant light, a strobe light, a flashier "disco" strobe light, and the epileptic fit strobe (from the description). The annoying thing is you can't just turn it on or off, you have to go through all the different modes of light before finally turning it off. But I guess due to the simplicity of the design, there's really no other way to handle the different light settings.

    The silicone grip around the actual bulb allows your to stretch the band around any frame or handle. My only complaint is the hook that keeps the band attached in a look is not that large, so it comes unhooked very easily—it fell off my bike a several times even when I didn't touch it.

We like this because it doesn't feel "cheap" and the colors are very vibrant and varied.

    Pee Pocket Review and Giveaway

    Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.


    Developed by a team of doctors, pee pocket is ideal for any woman 
    on the go, who has to go.

    THE PEE POCKET female urinary device is perfect for athletes, travelers, the elderly, disabled, pregnancy, parents of young girls, post-surgery patients – any woman who might have to go while on the go; active women who enjoy the outdoors, sports, music festivals, camping, hiking, biking, traveling, etc. Sketchy bathrooms -- or nonexistent ones! -- are no match for this handy device. It fits easily into a purse or backpack and is a must have for germ-conscious women who don't have access to a sit-down toilet or who don't want to use unfit facilities.
    THE PEE POCKET is a single use, waterproof disposable funnel allowing women to pee while standing. It’s convenient tri-fold design easily fits in purse or pocket and includes a  hygienic tissue wipe and disposable bag. Use without getting hands or other body parts wet.

    Created by team of doctors who were fed up with the mess after taking their young daughters to unfit facilities.

    Come in single pockets for $1.75 or three packs for $4.95.

    For more information, please visit

    This is a really cool concept for people who travel a lot or in situations where public restrooms aren't exactly buttcheek-friendly (don't I know!). I think it's a very simple, very useful thing to have with you just in case.

    The quality of the disposable Pee Pocket is very strong and durable, it's not just a piece of paper. It also comes with a cute tissue, just in case there is no toilet paper around.

    While I think this is an inventive product and it works just fine, I don't think I would necessarily pay that much money just to pee one time. You could easy roll up a piece of cardstock into a funnel and urinate into it..

    Regardless, you can try it for FREE. Just email me at if you want to enter to win one sample packet.

    Eye & Mighty Eyelash Curler Review

    Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

    Girls, Want Lovely Lashes?
    It's a shame for you not to have curly, dramatic lashes when this little tool does it so easily!
    What Makes The Eye And Mighty The Curler You Need?
    ✓ No pinch no pain curling
    ✓ Non slip handle
    ✓ Ergonomic design, to get every lash
    ✓ The Eye & Mighty eyelash curler lifts and curls like no other eyelash tool. You will know that you have found "the one"
    ✓ The spring loaded handle means you get a lot more lift with less pressure, say goodbye to straight lashes and hello to sexy curvy eyelashes!
    This Product Is So Easy To Use
    ✓ With eyes wide open, position the lash curler at the base of your lashes
    ✓ Gently squeeze and hold for 10 seconds
    ✓ For added drama add 1 coat of mascara for a pretty daytime look
    ✓ 2 coats for a dramatic look
    Voila, curly, dramatic lashes!
    Bella and Bear's eyelash curler is unlike one I've ever tried before because it contains a little spring in the handle that allows you to use less pressure on your eyelashes. I suppose this is better for the health of your lashes because they aren't as crimped when you use it.

    Honestly, I really wanted to love this curler, but it doesn't hold a curl at all. I have pretty long eyelashes to begin with, so curling my eyelashes always makes a noticeable difference. However, with this curler, I felt like I wasn't curling them at all! It curled my eyelashes at first, but after adding a coat of mascara, they drooped down to normal. Disappointing. Just to make sure, I curled my lashes again, with the coat of mascara on, and a few minutes later, the same thing happened.

    This all happened within 15 or so minutes. I'm glad I didn't leave the house like that! I have tried much better (and cheaper) curlers and this one may be unique, but I would not use it because it doesn't work for making my lashes more dramatic.

    The only thing I LOVED about this product was the handle. It's so smooth and fits perfectly in my hand. The design is really well done, I must admit; I just wish the performance was as impressive.
