Total Hair Repair Oil Review

I am always looking for new ways to make my hair healthier, and repair the damage that I have from coloring, heat styling, and everyday damage. This oil is different than some of the other treatments I've tried. These light natural oils nurture your hair from the roots to the ends. It strengthens and hydrates at the same time. It helps with split ends, which I think most of us suffer from. It adds shine, which I'm always looking for. This oil works for all hair types. It's a plant based formula, with sunflower oil, Argan oil, Panthenol and shea butter. The way this works is that the sunflower oil nourishes and prevents breakage, argan oil creates a seal for the hair cutical, panthenol fills in the cracks, and shea butter builds volume. On top of that it also contains Jojoba oil, and grapeseed oil. This is an all natural and organic product, which I love. There's nothing harmful going into your hair. This oil is also made by a company that I stand behind, Foxbrim, I have had nothing but great experiences with their products, and this one is no exception. My hair feels so much healthier, it is shiny, and easy to comb through, the scent is mild, and you don't need a lot for each use. It's a quick and easy treatment that takes 10 seconds, and works all day. My hair feels softer, stronger and healthier than it has in a long time. If you would like to get a bottle of this great hair repair oil you can find it on Amazon here.

Softy Wipes is a small family owned company based out of Seattle. Their  product is Softy Wipes, a sanitizing wipe that is alcohol free! These wipes are safe to use on your hands, body, and surfaces. This is cool to have something that's strong enough for surfaces, but gentle enough for your skin. Not only does it not contain alcohol, but they add Vitamin E and aloe, making it really nice on your skin. These wipes are large, thick, and very soft on your skin. The wipes are antibacterial, and kill 99.9% of bacteria in 5 seconds.The bottle comes with 150 of these large sized wipes, the bottle is huge! First of all I loved the smell of the wipes, very fresh and clean. The wipes were strong. I had no problem with them tearing, in fact the company says they are strong enough to hold a 12 kg kettle bell. I didn't test that out, but I may just have to because that is amazing. One wipe was enough, for any job I had. These would be great to keep in the bathroom for quick wipe downs, or even in your car for all of the germs we encounter in public.

Liztek HD Water Resistant Shower Speaker Review

This has got to be one of my favorite products that I have had the opportunity to try. Not only can you listen to music in the shower because this great little speaker is waterproof, and bluetooth compatible, so you can very easily connect it to any device that has bluetooth, but also, if you get a phone call while you're listening from your cell you can also answer a call from the shower.

It has buttons to skip songs forward and back, play, pause, power on and off, and a button to answer a call.The speaker is super loud and clear sound. I will say that the call quality is not crystal clear but, HELLO, your answering the phone from the shower, through water noise lol. I love it. I do wish the battery life was longer, but it's totally worth the quick and easy recharge. I love to use it to play Pandora on my cell. This little speaker makes my showers so much fun.

Azure Naturals Cucumber Infused Ultimate Peptide Eye Brightening Gel Review

Well first of all I only have good things to say about this company, Azure Naturals. They are dedicated to making high quality products that use natural and organic ingredients. I have tried many of their products for skin care and anti aging, and I have always been impressed not only with their great natural products but with their customer relations. The products are made in the USA, with high quality natural and organic ingredients. They are alcohol and paraben free, with no GMO's and they are cruelty free and never tested on animals.
    This eye brightening cream addresses all of the major concerns that we have with the skin around our eyes when we get a little older: dark circles, wrinkles, sagging, puffiness, and loss of the plump firm skin we once had. When we are young are cells renew themselves continuously, but as we get a little older this process slows down, and we need to give it a little extra help.
     The first thing that stood out to me is that the eye gel is infused with cucumber. We all remember either seeing in movies, or from our mothers, that a couple slices of cucumber over your eyes, would reduce puffiness, right? So imagine adding cucumber to your eye cream, and getting the benefit without laying around all day with cucumbers on your eyes lol. The cream was light weight, and absorbed easily into my skin and a little goes a long way, and guess what? It smells just like cucumber, fresh and clean.It's very refreshing.I have very sensitive skin, but I had no issues with this gentle product. It also has plant stem cells, which I think is very interesting, aloe,and many other ingredients that you find in your favorite natural anti aging products. I can't wait to see the results I get from using this product over time. As always with Azure Naturals Products, It has a simple clean packaging, and an easy pump bottle. The bottle is large for an eye cream and should last a while, so it's a good value, from a great line of products.If you want to get some of this eye gel for yourself you can find it on Amazon here.

Framesi BY Hydro Gel Strong Review and Giveaway

I love trying new hair care products, so I was excited to try this hair gel by Framesi. This gel is alcohol free, which is so much healthier for your hair. It has malachite extract and other minerals to help rebuild your hair if it's damaged. most of us have some damage, and you don't expect a styling product to, first of all, not contain damaging ingredients like alcohol, and second, actually help repair and rebuild your hair. These are great things. This product also has UV filters to protect your hair from the suns damaging rays. This is a volumizing gel that adds texture and shine.The first things I noticed about this gel is that it seems geared toward men. The bottle is black with a sleek design, and when  you open it the smell reminds me of a men's cologne. It smells great. This could just be my impression, because it doesn't specify that it's for men, and also it does seem to have a glittery look to the gel itself. I liked the gel. It wasn't sticky.You didn't need much, it went a long way. It dried a tiny bit crunchy but when I ran my fingers or a comb through it it ended up looking soft and shiny. It gave me the hold I was looking for. This would make a nice gift for men or women. You can fid it at the company's website here.

Joyal Beauty Timeless Skin Renewal Serum Review

I've tried many serums: vitamin c, hyaluranic acid, and some others. I'm a fan. This was my first try with a serum made with Royal Jelly, a honey bee secretion. This serum is also infused with honey and powerful natural antioxidants. These ingredients are said to preserve and restore proteins and enzymes for anti aging in the skin. It's said to promote a gentle cell renewal  boost that tones and lifts the skin. It moisturizes your skin, and has a unique non-greasy formula which absorbs quickly and penetrates into the dermis of the skin. You can use it under your regular moisturizer and makeup.This serum also contains ingredients that lead to increased collagen production. This serum is also enriched with centela asiatica herb which has anti viral, antibacterial, and anti inflammatory properties. This herb has been used for skin conditions such as psoriasis, dermatitis, and minor burns. It seems to me like this product is packed with healing ingredients that should be great for my skin, from all natural sources. As for my personal experience with this serum. My first impression was that it smelled great, a little fruity. It comes out like a gel, but when you rub it in to your skin it feels almost like water. It is very hydrating and a little goes a long way.It absorbed very easily and didn't leave any residue on my skin. It just left my skin feeling soft and smooth. I'm looking forward to seeing the long term results for my skin. I love using natural products on my skin, and knowing that I am making it healthier, and not putting any chemicals into my body. This product fits that bill, and I'm happy I got to try it. If you want to test it out for yourself , you can find it on Amazon here.
