Product Review: Bulgarian Lavender Essential Oil by First Botany Cosmeceuticals

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


This Bulgarian Lavender Oil by First Botany Cosmeceuticals is 100% pure. It is a therapeutic grade with no additives or fillers. It comes with a glass dropper that easily dispenses the oil in drops and helps to prevent leaking and dripping. There are many different uses for lavender oil, which include it being beneficial for migraine relief, headaches, and as a sleep aid.

I used this Lavender Oil in my aromatherapy machine as a sleep aid. On some nights I could feel myself getting sleepy and turned off my aromatherapy machine before I feel asleep. On other nights I drifted off to sleep fast and I slept through the whole cycle of my aromatherapy machine, which I think lasts at least a few hours. Then there was one time it wasn't able to put me to sleep, although I don't think anything could've that night.

I also used this Lavender Oil in my spa facial steamer because I heard it was supposed to help my skin when used that way. After I used it short term that way my face felt and looked soft.

The bottle that this product came in is a 4 ounce size bottle. I love the glass dropper because the drops looked like equal-sized drops me to me when I dropped them into my aromatherapy machine.
I love the smell of Lavender Oil and this Lavender Oil has smelled great to me also!

Product Review: Spa Home Facial Steamer by Lift Care

Updated review (the original post has also been updated)

Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.
 
This Spa Home Facial Steamer by Lift Care is made to help remove dirt and grime from facial pores. After it is plugged in, water is added, the water heats up for about five minutes, and essential oil is added, the steamer starts the process of hydrating the face to open up and clean the pores and remove blackheads (please be sure to do the research on what essential oils you should use to help the facial skin). 

There are three levels of skin application for this product listed in the directions: 1) oily skin steam nursing, 2) dry skin steam nursing, and 3) sensitive skin steam nursing, and includes directions on how to use this product for all three levels. There is also directions on how to use this product to extract blackheads. There is one bottle of Frankincense and Myrrh included (mixed). The steamer can work on the low or high level of power. It can also be used for aromatherapy.

 
The directions that came with this product list some precautions to not to use it if you have heart disease, serious rosacea, and eczema or psoriasis. Patients with serious diseases and pregnant women should consult a physician before use. People should stop using this product if there is skin inflammation or discomfort. There are also some other precautions listed in the directions.

I have used this product as a facial steamer short term with Peppermint and Lavender essential oils. So far the results I have seen are that my face feels and looks soft to me. There are two modes to use this product at and I tried both levels. The lower mode definitely feels less steamy to me, so when I don't want as much steam I will use that mode. I used it with and without a towel on my head and I think I got better results with using it with a towel on my head. This steamer works for about 10 minutes and then the water is used and it stops working.

I used it for aromatherapy, also. After I added water it took about 3-4 minutes for the machine to sound like it was ready; after I added the essential oil and put the lid on it started dispensing the essential oil aroma into the air. I used a type of essential oil (Peppermint) that would help me breathe better, since the weather change has been messing with my respiratory system. The aroma did seem strong; at one point I got up real close to the machine to sniff the aroma and I could feel it passing right through my respiratory system very rapidly as I sniffed...from my nose, throat, and I think into my lungs (I probably added too much essential oil and I was more careful the next time). My family members and I could smell the aroma very heavily downstairs.

This product is great for people that just want to steam their face in combination with the benefits of essential oils that are good for the skin and/or want to use it for a short cycle of aromatherapy.

Product Review: Women's Silicone Fit Ring by Arthletic

Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.
 
The Silicone Fit Ring by Arthletic is a great alternative to a metal ring. It is made of hypoallergenic, non-conductive silicone. There is a symbol on the outside of the ring (looks like the pie symbol) and says FIT[RING] on the inside. It comes in 4 different colors that I know about right now: space black, lilac borealis green, lilac purple, and aurora blue.


The Silicone Fit Ring in Lilac Purple. If you look close enough you can see what looks like a pie symbol on the outside of the ring and the words FIT[RING] on the inside.


I received this ring in a size 6 in lilac purple. I wore it on the same finger as my wedding ring finger but on the other side of my hand, since I'm not married. It fit nice and snug on that finger and is easy to take off also. I liked wearing it when I wore purple shirts; it would also look great with black, white, and gray shirts.

This ring would be great to wear in place of a wedding ring for people that need to protect it during work and other situations where it might be damaged if it is worn. Athletes and people that need to wear gloves to serve meals (to prevent diamonds on rings from cutting into the gloves) would benefit from having a ring like this. I don't think this ring will get scratched and nicked like a metal ring with diamonds would, and if it does ever get damaged it is very inexpensive to replace!

Product Review: Hammered Half Moon Silver Necklace by SpunkySoul.com

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


This Hammered Half Moon Silver Necklace by SpunkySoul.com is 18-20" long, the pendant is 1 3/8" x 1 3/4". It is made of silver metal and glass beads, has a lobster clasp, and is lead and nickel free. It comes in a purple drawstring gift bag, and contains a keepsake card.

I first noticed the drawstring gift bag this necklace comes in and it is very pretty (I love purple)! The Hammered Half Moon on this necklace is beautiful (very shiny)! When I first saw it I thought it would be nice to wear with fancy clothes but after putting it on it looked good with blouses I wore around my home and to a family member's softball game also. It really will go with pretty much any color. The length it hung around my neck was adjustable, since there are loops in the chain. It hung on my chest area. It is heavier than most necklaces I have worn; I often forgot it was there though until I looked down and saw it, so it is not heavy in a way that it weighed me down.

I will most likely be getting this necklace out when I have a fancy event to go to; it will be great for wearing when getting together with my family and friends also.

Product Review: Gluten-free Oatmeal Bars by Toosum


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

These Toosum snack bars are not only good, they are healthy! At 100 calories per bar they are created from nutrient-dense ingredients, straight from nature! They are also gluten free, low in sugar, non-GMO, and are Kosher!

I sampled the cranberry and acai, coconut and banana, cherry and plum, and blueberry and greek yogurt bars. Each 1.07 oz bar I ate seemed to have the right amount of oatmeal, just the right amount of fruit, and even the chia seeds were a nice touch. After I ate the bars it felt like I had put something healthy in my body and I remember thinking something along the lines of "That was really good!". As a snack it held me over until the next time I ate.


The name Toosum comes from the word "toothsome", meaning "temptingly tasty and delicious." The name of these bars definitely seem to match what they were to me..."temptingly tasty and delicious."

Product Review: Freedom Clever Clip by Freedom Brew 2.0

Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.
 
 
This Freedom Clever Clip is to be used with the Keurig 2.0. It clips inside the Keurig and allows different Kcups for the Keurig 2.0 to be used, not just the Kcups that Keurig sells. So when people put a Kcup in their machine that is supposed to be for the Keurig 2.0 and they find that it doesn't work, this clip should solve the problem!

I needed to unplug our Keurig when installing this clip so the machine hopefully wouldn't do something strange while I was installing it. There are sharp parts inside the Keurig so I tried to be careful installing it even when it was unplugged. There are instructions on how to install the clip but it took me a few tries to figure out where and how to clip it onto the part it needed to be clipped onto.

Having this clip installed inside our Keurig 2.0  does allow our Kcups that are not Keurig brand to brew. Our Keurig 2.0 has worked with all non-Keurig brand Kcups we have purchased so far. If we run into any Kcups that will not brew in our Keurig then we feel better knowing we now have this clip to use in the machine!

Product Review: Chalkmaster Earthtone Color Set 10 Liquid Chalk Markers by US Art Supply

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


The Chalk Master Earthtone Color Set Liquid Chalk Markers by US Art Supply comes with the following Earthtone colors: Black, Light Purple, Fleshtone, Rustic Red, Light Brown, Dark Brown, Cream Yellow, Light Green, Dark Green and Sky Blue. The liquid chalk markers not only come with reversible tips but there are also 6 free replaceable tips included. They can be used on surfaces such as plastic, glass, metal, and non-porous surfaces. They are safe to use for ages 3 and up since they are water-based and non-toxic.

My project with the Chalkmaster Earth Tones Liquid Markers
It was easy for me to start using these Liquid Chalk Markers. I took the caps off, shook the markers, and pressed the tips down on the markers until liquid filled the entire tips. When I made some mistakes on the plastic I colored on, or my hand smeared the liquid before it dried, it was easy to wipe off the markers and start again. The day after I first used these markers I used them again and a lot of the liquid still looked fresh but some of the liquid looked like it was drier then the first application. I shook up some of the markers and the liquid looked less dry to me and more or as moist then the first time I used them. The liquid will stay moist longer if the caps are put back on tight.

I can imaging that these markers would probably be fun for children to use on jars, plastic, and non-porous surfaces.

Product Review: Foot Compression Sleeves by HealPT

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

 

These Foot Compression Sleeves by HealPT are heavenly to me! When I first put them on they felt sooo good on my feet...I could feel them compressing soreness in my feet! I wore them under a pair of socks. I used them for work because after about an hour or two of standing on my feet they start throbbing and I end up twisting my feet around trying to get some relief. The throbbing in my feet was almost non-existent when I wore these Foot Compression Sleeves; I felt a little bit of throbbing towards the end of my work day but it was barely noticeable. I did find myself twisting my feet a little bit during that time but it was a very small amount of throbbing, compared to a very large amount that I was feeling before I used them. I remember thinking thoughts like "These feel sooo good and I barely notice any soreness in my feet after standing so long." They definitely did provide a HUGE amount of relief to the soreness in my feet!

Sometimes when I get home from work my feet throb so much that I need to soak them and my legs in a therapeutic foot soak; I didn't need to do that after wearing these foot compression sleeves because I didn't notice any soreness in my feet after wearing them.

Not only are they made for foot soreness but also to relieve arthritis, plantar fasciitis, and heel spurs. The nylon and spandex create a tight fit for stability and promote quicker healing because of increased blood flow.

More of these Foot Compression Sleeves are on my wish list, because it would help me to probably have more than one pair.

Product Review: 12-Slot Leather Watch Box by Ohuhu

 
Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.
 
 
This 12-Slot Leather Watch Box by Ohuhu can be used for women and men's watches and jewelry. The size of the box is: 12" L x 8" W x 3 1/2" H, Pad size is: 3 1/2" L x 2" W x 1/2" H. It is very light at 2.75 pounds. There are 12-slots and removable pillows, making it great to store watches and other pieces of jewelry like rings, bracelets, and necklaces. There is a metal latch, which securely closes the box. The lid is made with clear glass so the contents can be viewed on the inside.

I used this to store some watches and rings. The pillows fit nicely around my watches and held my rings pretty nicely. If I would've used some of the slots without the pillows I would've been able to store all my rings in one slot probably.

At first I thought this Leather Watch Box didn't look like a women's Leather Watch Box because it is black and I imagined that black would be better for men. As I have gotten used to it sitting on my dresser, it feels like it is made for women, also. It kind of feels and looks to like to me like something a husband and a wife might share.

I am glad that the pillows are removable because most people probably do not own 12 watches at one time and have other jewelry that can be stored in it!

Product Review: Stretched Small Canvas Multi-Pack by US Art Supply

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

This Stretched Small Canvas Multi-Pack from US Art Supply comes with 2 canvases each of 5 different sizes: 4x4, 5x7, 8x10, 9x12, and 11x14. The canvases are stapled and have clean edges. A few of the sizes (11x14, 9x12) fit nicely on my standing easel to paint on and for the most part were sturdy when I wasn't moving them around with the brushes; I felt more comfortable painting some of the other smaller sizes (4x4, 5x7) on a flat surface.


I painted with acrylic and oil paint on these canvases, with various sized paint brushes. Acrylic paint applied more paint at one time when the brushes had been dabbed in paint. Oil paint took more coats, although the overall texture looked thicker to me when the paintings were finished. I like both paints but I would probably use oil paint more often because although it took longer to apply the paint on these canvases when I used oil paint, the outcome was more colorful to me! I like how the edges of the canvas can be painted also, since the edges stretch over the sides; I was able to expand my painting to the sides because of that.  I like that there are 5 different sizes in this multi-pack because pictures for paintings probably come to people's minds in different sizes, so a variety pack of canvases to match those picture sizes better is great!.

Students and professional artists would most likely benefit from using these canvases!

My review= 5 out of 5 stars

***Note: These pictures I painted symbolize something precious to me and have great meaning to me. They are symbols of the Netzarim (Nazarene) group. This is an example of something I have floating around in my mind that there is already a picture made for but that I wanted to see if I could draw it also. I drew it first and then painted it on the canvases.***

Product Review: Small 'Surf' Chopping Board Acacia Wood by Nice & Nature

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


This small 'surf' chopping board really comes in handy when you want to cut up one or two pieces of fruit, vegetables, or bread; either side of the chopping board can even be used. It is made of acacia wood grain and measures 12"(long) by 8"(wide) by 0.75"(thick). It is easy to clean; the built in handle allows you to hold the board up in the sink as you put soap and water on it.

I used this small chopping board to cut an apple, onion, and a roll. I like that it is so small and handy because a lot of times I often don't cut up enough food to have to get a larger cutting board out. It did leave a few small dents in the board when I used a butter knife to cut with; I thought it wouldn't because those knives aren't very sharp. I don't expect any cutting board to not have dents in it after any kind of knives are used though. I like that this board kind of matches my other larger cutting board, which is made of bamboo. I love the way the acacia wood looks and feels on this board; it is very smooth. I can imagine that someone probably put a lot of time into crafting it!

Product Review: Travel Eye Mask by The Sleep Easy

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

This Travel Eye Mask by The Sleep Easy has a padded eye mask and an elasticated head support. It will fit around a seat with a head rest in a car, train, plane, or coach. It keeps heads from bobbing up and down and rolling from side to side while sitting up. It comes with a stylish carry case so it can be tucked away in bags, briefcases, and purses for your next trip.
This eye mask fit securely around a head rest in the back seat of our van. It kept my head in one place, free from bobbing and rolling. It strapped my head into one place pretty well. It blocked out most light, enough to cause me to probably fall sleep peacefully if I was on a long trip. There was only a few small patches of light I noticed at the bottom of the mask, I only noticed that when I looked for it. I didn't go on a trip during the time I used it, but my head and neck area did not feel sore at all after I used it for the distance our van traveled on two separate occasions.

Not only do I think this mask is great as a travel eye mask but I think it will help soothe pain if someone has a headache because it is sooo soft and comfortable. I love the carry case that comes with it. It is see through and durable!

Product Review: Salad Bowl by Perlli

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


This salad bowl isn't like any regular salad bowl! It comes with a place to put ice in the bottom so food you put in the bowl will stay chilled as long as the ice isn't melted. It comes with a tray to hold items like fruit, cheese, vegetables, and salad. There are some circular spaces in the tray, I think to bring some additional coldness to the food stored on those trays. There is a divider that allows there to be more than one kind of food used on the tray, giving the bowl four separate sections so the different foods will not get mixed up. There is also a cup in the middle of and on top of that divider to store dressings and sauces, a spoon and fork to pick up the food, and a dome lid.

I used this salad bowl to keep apple slices and cheese cold a couple hours before I ate them. The first time I used it I left it sitting out for about 2 hours and the food items were cold when I was ready to eat them. The second time I used it I left it sitting out for about 2 hours and 30 minutes to 2 hours and 45 minutes and the food was not as cold when I had it sitting out for that long, probably because the ice was melted a lot more. I don't think there is any way to keep the cup cold in the middle of the divider so the please keep that in mind when putting dressings and sauces in it. Since I put some honey in it when I was ready to eat the food I am not entirely sure if that cup could be kept cold or not. As most bowls that use ice probably do, the condensation starts dripping after awhile so it would be good to keep a couple of cloth pot holders and even a towel or two underneath if it is being set on delicate surfaces that are affected by water. I plan to continue to use it for fruits and cheese.

This salad bowl was easy to clean before and after I used it. I put it in the dishwasher before I used it and it washed well in there. It was easy to rinse off after I used it, even the honey in the dish was easy to rinse out with water and I didn't need a scrub brush or sponge to help get the honey out before I put it in the dishwasher.

Product Review: Craft Clips (50 per package) by Evergreen Supply


Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.
 
 
These all purpose Craft Clips by Evergreen Supply come with 50 pieces per package in different colors. The colors I found in my package are red, blue, yellow, orange, and pink. The container they come in is very compact and can be stored away in a craft bag or box and also in a drawer. The clips are very small and will not load down anything you use them for.


I have to admit I didn't know what to use these clips for at first but I learned that there are so many uses for these clips...they can be used to hold cloth in place while hemming, mark a place while sewing, clipping papers together, hanging papers/artwork on a string (if the string is thin enough to fit through the small hole), plus probably countless other uses also. It looked like there were magnets on them; I tried using them on the refrigerator and they didn't stick though. They have other handy uses like clipping potato chip and other snack food bags and keeping coupons together while shopping.

Product Review: 45 Piece Art Set with Watercolor Cakes by US Art Supply

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

This is an interesting art set product from US Art Supply! It contains watercolor paints with a paint brush, colored pencils, graphite pencils, pigmented colored crayons, and two pencil sharpeners. This is the quantity of each you will receive in this set:

- 12 Watercolor Palette Colors in Dried Cakes with Painting Brush
- 6 Crisp Line Graphite Pencils
- 12 Pigmented Colored Crayons
- 12 Artist Grade Colored Pencils
- 2 Pencil Sharpeners

The watercolor paints worked well for me on watercolor paper. The paint and water did not drip down off of the paper as I was painting, it seemed to just dry right into the paper. The paint cakes dried well and weren't a sloppy, watery mess.

The line graphite pencils worked well when I used them on some canvases. In my opinion, they drew into the surfaces very easily.

I used the 12 pigmented colored crayons on a coloring picture. They smelled nice (they kind of smelled fruity to me), and they colored very smoothly. One of the coloring ends broke off one of the crayons as I was coloring but all the others I colored with stayed in tact.

The artist grade colored pencils were great to use with an adult coloring book. They were basic colors, which are hard to find in larger selections of colored pencils.

There are probably two pencil sharpeners because one is probably supposed to be used for the Line Graphite Pencils and one for the Colored Pencils. I used one pencil sharpener for one of the colored pencils that lost its point; it sharpened it pretty quickly, without taking up much of the pencil lead. I didn't have to use the other pencil sharpener yet since both the Line Graphite still have strong points on them!

I loved using this art set! I think it would be great for art students that need to use watercolors, line graphite pencils, colored pencils, and crayons. I think it would also be great for first time watercolor artists to have as well as current watercolor artists that go through a lot of watercolor paint, graphite pencils, colored pencils, and pigmented crayons.

Product Review: Microfiber Face Cloth by Luxe Beauty Essentials



The Microfiber Face Cloth by Luxe Beauty Essentials felt really soft on my face; I do not ever remember ever feeling something so soft. The towel itself is white and the borders are pink.  I imagine it is something that would be used for an infant because it does not feel like it would be scratchy or rough on the skin; I also think it is the kind of cloth that an infant or toddler might carry around with them for comfort because it is so soft. It would be good for adults that need non-rough feeling washcloths for the face also.

I cannot find any products specifications for it. It is about the size of a regular wash cloth and looks like the kind of fabric used for infant towels and cloths.

Product Review: Diamond Ring by Beverly Diamonds

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

I received a sample of what the diamond ring from Beverly Diamonds looks like. It is a sample only, which means it is a model of what the diamond ring looks like without the diamond in it. It is replaced by a gem that looks like a diamond, since the manufacturer was not able to send me (or any reviewer I think) a real diamond sample, which is understandable.

I received the ring in a size 7 and it fits pretty good on the finger I put it on (the finger beside the pinky finger on my right hand). Even though this is a sample of what the diamond ring looks like in another form, the ring looks really nice on my hand. Sometimes the ring moves around on my finger, but that is only because it is a size 7 and I would probably need a size 6 to have the ring fit tighter on my finger (I didn't want it to be too tight either though because I don't keep the ring on all the time, and I'm still learning what ring sizes fit well on different fingers). The place where the gem is didn't stick out that much, which I like because I would rather wear rings that have gems that don't stick out that much, or at all.

If this ring is so nice with the diamond-like gem, then I believe the ring with the diamond in it is probably so much nicer and will be great for many women to own as an engagement/wedding ring!

Product Review: Extra Large Bamboo Cutting Board & Serving Tray by Practico Kitchen


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

This extra large bamboo cutting board and serving tray is made from 100% premium bamboo. The measurements are 18 inches x 12 inches x 3/4 inches and weighs 3.1 pounds.  It is toxin-free with no added dyes or stains. It can be used for many purposes, such as preparing cheese, fruits, vegetables, and meat. Food can also be served straight from the cutting board.  It is gentle on knives and helps keeps counters cleaner from the juice and drip groove on the board. It is easy to wash, just wash with soap and warm water and air dry.



This bamboo cutting board did a great job of cutting chicken and an apple when I needed to cut them down into small pieces. It also worked to help level out a ball of pizza dough, to give it something to sit on while leveling it, to flatten it out. It looks a lot nicer to me than some of the cutting boards I have used.

I noticed what looks like some permanent knife cutting scars on the board but they are not very deep and barely noticeable, so I think it did a good job of resisting some of the sharpness of the knives I used.

Although I know the white cutting boards can usually have a cleaner added to remove stains, I am not sure if that would be possible with this board if it ended up staining. Since the board is darker it might not matter. It did a great job of washing clean with soap and water. The juice and drip groove makes it easier to clean because a soapy (for washing) and non-soapy towel (for washing the soap off and drying) can be used to clean it without any (or much) water getting on the counter. Although I didn't need to use the juice and drip groove for the foods I cut, I am glad it is there if I need it for other foods I cut and chop up on this board.

A great durable and versatile bamboo cutting board!

Product Review: Oven Gloves by Ohuho

Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.
These Oven Gloves by Ohuho are lightweight, flexible, and have long cuffs and a non-slip grip. They are heat resistant up to 662F degrees, giving one the ability to take anything that cooks at normal temperature out of the oven and most other baking appliances and be able to handle it for an extended period of time. They are also great for handling hot pots and pans on the stove, frozen foods, skewers, changing light bulbs, etc. They do not provide protection against the fire of heat.


This pair of gloves made it very easy to take a hot pan out of my oven, without feeling heat from the oven or the pan on my hands; my hands felt totally protected.  These gloves were bigger than I imagined they would be but I think they have to be bigger to provide the amount of protection they provide. They were not huge, just bigger than most oven mitts I have used on my hands. They were also really comfortable; they remind me of a big pair of mittens.

I think a lot of people will be happy with the multiple uses for these Oven Gloves and the way they feel on their hands!

Oven Gloves by Ohuho Specifications:

Product dimensions: 11.9" x 6.7" x 1.4"
Product weight: 0.55 lbs
Material: Aramid fiber+ Cotton+ Silicone
