BlackGold Adaptogenic Youth Cream

 

I received this adapter genic you screen for free or at a discount for my honest review. See my full disclosure here.

I’m always on the lookout for youth creams that work. I have yet to find anything that works really well. I’m hoping that this will be the one but we shall see. This cream is nice I like the way it goes on and it doesn’t feel oily. My skin seems to feel better and look Better since I’ve been using it. So that in itself is a good thing. I just have only been using it for about a week so I haven’t noticed any difference as far as wrinkles or fine lines.

I would love to know what you think about it if you buy it or not. Leave me a comment below and let me know what you think.

So I plan on using this till the bottle is empty. And I will have to update the this post after I finish it. And I will let you know how well it actually works. Here’s to hoping for the best.

Have a great day!

Hair Curler Set


I received this hair curler set for free or at a discount for my honest review. For my full disclosure click here. 

I have long quit using a curling iron because of the damage that it does to your hair. I know many feel this is a small consequence for good looking style, but I just don’t feel that way. So this product helps one to have good looking hair without the damage.

When your hair is wet or damp, you roll it around the long rod and keep your hair in place with the hair ties. The set also comes with a hair clip which I adore. I love the pearls on it. The hair clip is so very classy and not made of a cheap plastic.

They also have other hair accessories like the head band which is actually pretty comfortable and hair buns which are really cute. I think if you can find one that matches your hair color it would look amazing to use when putting your hair up in a bun. They have the elastic already in them so it makes styling very easy.

There are a few different patterns for the hair curler. I personally like the black on best but the others are cute too. You can get yours here:

Book Light


I received this Book Light for free or at a discount for my honest review.

I have been looking for a new book light because mine has been really irritating me lately. The batteries do not last very long and I dislike having to replace them constantly.

Book Light

 

This light is rechargeable so I don’t have to worry about batteries any more. I only have to remember to plug this one in when it needs it (so far this seems to be about 2 times a week). This light also has 5 brightness levels so it will provide enough light to read by no matter what. I don’t think that I have ever had a light with more than one brightness level so this is a game changer for me.

Book Light

 

This also has 3 different colors that you can use. It has a bright white, soft white, and amber color that are available to use while reading. So far I like the soft white the best but that’s just me.  There is one where the amber is mixed with the white which is nice, but doesn’t work in my room very well so I generally use the soft white setting at a medium brightness level.

 

Book Light

 

You can get this light on Amazon here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B09PR1BTM7

If you purchase this or have this already, I would love to know what your thoughts are on this light. Leave a comment below and let me know.

Small Bathroom Trash Bags


I’ve partnered with Tomoson on this post. Meaning I received payment [o]r free product to write this post. All views are my own. To see my full disclosure click here.

So far I really like these bags. They seem to be pretty strong and hopefully will hold up during use. I just put the fist one in so we shall see. If they preform well, I will likely just let this review stand as is. However, if they don’t preform as well I will update this post later.

These trash bags are the 4 gallon size. They have several other sizes available also so if you need something a little smaller or a little bigger they should have it. There are 4 different colors in the box they came in. I really like the colors of these bags. The colors are pretty vibrant and they look nice.

Each color has a full roll of bags. I don’t remember how many each roll is supposed to have but they last for a long time when used in the bathroom trash here. The last trash bags I bought lasted me about a year and it had the same amount of bags in it so these should last for a while.

One thing I have noticed about these bags is that they seem a little thicker than the ones that I bought. I hope this is the case because they should work much better if they are. I look forward to finding out.

The Squirrel Who Worried


I’ve partnered with Tomoson  on this post. Meaning I received payment or free product to write this post. All views are my own.

 

This has got to be the cutest book I have seen for littles in a while. While I was reading this to my grand son he sat through the whole thing. This is not something he does very often. He doesn’t seem to like being read to for some reason, but he likes this book. For information the grand son is almost 3 but still non verbal.  He enjoyed looking at the pictures while I read the book to him. I was surprised that he sat through the whole thing, he is very mobile and would much rather be mobile rather than sitting still.

The pictures look to be hand drawn and are all absolutely beautiful. I’m guessing the pictures were done by the author Katie O’Donoghue but as far as I can tell it doesn’t say specifically. The story is about a squirrel that worries and his friends, old and new, come to help him work through his worry so that he gather is acorns before winter.

 

As I said the pictures are amazing and beautiful. If you would like to purchase this book you can do so here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/071719230

I would love to know if you buy the book and what you think about it. Leave a comment below and let me know.

Laundry Bag


I received this Laundry Bag for free or at a discount for my honest review. To see my full review click here.

I wasn’t sure this was going to work for me, but so far, I love it.

This bag seems to be made of canvas and it comes with a metal ring that goes in the bottom to help keep the shape. It has a drawstring top to keep everything inside. It has sturdy handles to carry it with. Everything that I need to help me with laundry chores.

The handles are sewn on great and don’t look like they will give out too soon. This is a big one for me. I have several different bags that the handles gave out after a month of use. I don’t even fill the bag very full so I was very disappointed. I am hopeful that this one will not be the same way.

I am looking forward to being able to use this laundry bag for a long time to come. I love that drawstring on the top as it makes sure I won’t lose anything if the bag falls over or something. If you would like to purchase this bag you can do so on Amazon here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B093274J4R

I would love to know if you purchase or have purchased this what your thoughts are. Leave a comment below and let me know.

Small Projects Workbook


I received the Small Project Workbook for free or at a discount for my honest review. To see my full disclosure click here.

We all have projects that we would like to get done, at least I know that I do any how, but without a plan I usually don’t get them done very timely or very well.

This workbook provides the framework and places to write things down so that you have a plan put in place to complete your project. You need to decide on what you’re going to do. You need to figure out how you’re going to do what you want to do. Then you need to plan when you will complete what you want to do.

The main thing I like about this book is that you don’t have to start at the beginning. You can start where ever in planning process that you are currently at. Just find the right section so that you can begin getting your idea down on paper.

There are places in the book that you can write all your information down, if you get the paper back book and not the ebook.  But with the ebook, a piece of paper works just as well.

If you would like to get this workbook you can do so on Amazon here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08CDZG72Y

I would love to know if you purchase this and what your thoughts are about this book. Leave a comment below and let me know.

Cute Socks


I received these socks for free or at a discount for my honest review. To see my full disclosure click here.

These socks are adorable. I love the way they feel too. They aren’t rough like some socks I’ve worn. I really hope these last for a while.

These came with 5 pairs of socks that all have a fruit theme to them. There are different colors and different types of pictures on them as well. What surprised me though was that they are actually fairly comfortable as well. I am looking forward to wearing these for a while to come. I love the longer socks because they also keep my legs warm rather than just my feet.

I have only had them for a short time so I don’t know how well they will hold up, but I am hopeful they will last for a bit. I think my favorite pair has bananas on them in a light blue color. They are absolutely adorable. You can get your  socks here: https://funnysquared.com/collections/pre-sale/products/the-girls-4-pack

I would love to hear if you get these socks as well. What are your thoughts on them? Leave a comment below and let me know.

Weighted Hoola Hoop


I received the weighted hula hoop for free or at a discount for my honest review. To see my full disclosure please click here.

My daughter has wanted one of these for the longest time because she saw it on TikTok so when this opportunity came up I jumped at it. I am looking forward to using this for a while to try to tone down a bit as well because it seems like it would work.

It comes to you in a few pieces, but this is after we completely broke it down so that it would fit in the bag that came with it. It goes together and comes apart within minutes. I think it took us about 2 minutes to build it from the picture above.

The weight slides on just before putting the last part in and it moves easily around the outside track. If you know how to hula hoop, this would make for good cardio I imagine. I have a hard time with this because I couldn’t hula hoop as a kid and it seems that I still can’t hula hoop as an adult.

However, it seems that it will be great fun to learn at this late age in life so I will be testing this out a lot more than I have to date.

If you would like to try this out go to Amazon here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08ZNL1T2G

If you do try it out, leave me a comment below and tell me what you think of this product. I would love to hear your thoughts on this.

Shampoo and Conditioner


I received this Shampoo and Conditioner for free or at a discount for my honest review. To see my full disclosure click here.

So let me first say that because of the ingredients, I wasn’t able to use this so I gave it to my daughter to try it out and she loves the way her hair feels after using it.

The scent of these are amazing, in the bottle. It’s a fruity type smell but once it was used in the shower it smelled pretty bad on Kira’s hair for a couple hours after her shower. This was the only thing she didn’t like about it. Everything else was very positive.

Her hair was really soft after it dried and when she brushed her hair it was so easy. She said it was easier to brush through than even normal. She absolutely loved the way her hair felt after it dried. So the drawback of the scent was over come by that. However, it did last for a long time and it was pretty strong.

That said, the positives outweighed the one negative on this pair. She loved the way her hair felt afterward. She also said that the shampoo didn’t lather as normal shampoo does, but I have noticed that the more natural shampoos usually don’t lather as well but seem to clean better.

Phone Holder


I received this phone holder for free or at a discount for my honest review. If you would like to see my full disclosure click here.

It seems to me that most of these phone holders don’t really hold on to your phone very well. Or at least the ones that I have used in the past. This one appears that it will hold the phone better because it is spring loaded in the area that holds the phone. I like this about this holder, of course, given time that spring could get weaker so we shall see how long this one lasts.

I do like that you can position this phone in so many different ways. The phone can be vertical or horizontal and you can adjust how high or low the phone faces. The base will turn so that you can attach the clip to almost anything in your car, including your vents. The clip is pretty hard to move right now but I assume that with age it will get easier to work.

I really think this one will work for me so I hope that I am right on this. You can purchase this on Amazon here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/mpc/AOTMNSO4HT3MZ

Homestead Classes

Have you wondered about how to get information that you can trust on your animals. I may have a solution for you that won’t cost you an arm and a leg. Shelby Devore of Farminence has several workshops with good information on different homesteading subjects.

If you need information on gardening, she has that at https://shelbydevore.podia.com/backyard-vegetable-gardener-s-summit-2021-all-access-pass/bouat

If you need information on raising goats she has that at

No matter what information you need, you can possibly find it there. All of her workshops are listed at https://shelbydevore.podia.com/a/bouat

I have gone through her herd basics workshop and the information is good. There were a few things that I didn’t know that she had in there. Things that I will be putting to use here now that I know. Of course there is no better information than your Vet, but I know that many times one can’t afford the Vet for everything so having some knowledge helps a great deal.

If your struggling with your gardening she has workshops for that too.  This is one of the websites that I follow so I feel that her information is good. With everything in one spot there is no need to go around searching the web for the information that may or may not be correct.

Check her out and let me know what you think. Leave a comment below and tell me your thoughts on her site.

Have a great day!

Check my Body Health

I received the analysis from Check my body health for free or at a discount for my honest review. To see my full disclosure click here.

I was approached by Check My Body Health to get an analysis on what my body is sensitive to and I jumped at the chance to do this. I have wanted to see about this for a while and have even been thinking about asking my doctor about this. So I was very excited to do this.

I got my results the other day and I am working on the elimination phase of determining what is affecting my health. This was easy to do. You sign up on their website and pay for the test. They email you the information to get the test done, which consists of sending a hair sample to them. I got an email when they received my sample and again with my results. This is a very detailed report. I thought it would just be about food sensitivities but it also includes metals, and other sections.

 

I read through all the information. This is a very detailed report. They tell you what has a high reactivity level, a moderate reactivity level and no reactivity level. They go through every food type you can think of and tell you which ones your body reacted to. I am now working on the elimination phase where you remove the high reactivity foods for a month. This allows the food to get out of your system all the way. Then you start adding them back one by one to determine how you react to the individual item.

In doing this, you are able to determine what products are not good for your system. This allows you to put back those items that don’t seem to bother you while completely removing those that do. I will keep you updated on this as I start the reintroduction phase next month.  If you would like to have this done you can sign up here: http://www.checkmybodyhealth.com/us

Lip mask


I received this lip mask for free or at a discount for my honest review. To see my full disclosure click here.

During the summer my lips are always dry and peeling. I love this collagen lip mask so far, because my lips haven’t been as dry as they usually are this time of year.

This is such a little bottle that I really didn’t have much hope that this stuff would be any good.  I always have to use a lot of the other brands and I’m constantly re applying very often. So I didn’t think this would last very long, but I was surprised because I still have almost a full jar. It seems that this stays put and works for  a while rather than coming off almost instantly. I have been using this only a couple times a day and my lips are nice now. I love the way they feel and look.

There really is no smell to this and no taste that I have been able to tell. It goes on nicely and stays put. It’s not greasy like some others are. I really like this lip mask and I would recommend it to anyone who gets dry lips at any time during the year.

You can get this at: https://www.walmart.com/blocked?url=L2lwL0NvbGxhZ2VuLUxpcC1NYXNrLURyeS1MaXBzLVB1cmVhdXR5LU5hdHVyYWxzLUJhbG0tSHlkcmF0ZS1QbHVtcC1EcnktRHVsbC1DaGFwcGVkLUxpcHMtTW9pc3R1cml6ZXItQ2FyZS1Nb2lzdHVyaXppbmctTmlnaHQtU2hlYS1CdXR0ZXIvMjg1MDQ1MDI4

Foot Cream


I received this foot cream for free or at a discount for my honest review. If you would like to see my full disclosure please click here.

In the summer time, my heals get so dry they start to crack. This isn’t really painful for me it’s just irritating because the skin will catch on everything. So I have been looking for a good foot cream to help keep this from happening. I think I just found it!

I love the way my heels are starting to feel now. They are healing and beginning to get better. I love that this cream is pretty thick so you actually feel like you’re putting something on them. I have used a few that are so thin you can’t even tell if you are using something and you have to use a lot at a time to get any kind of relief. So this one being so creamy is a great thing I think.

I love Pureauty because their product are made in the USA and they are not tested on animals. They have natural ingredients such as: Shea Butter and lavender oil. I love that they use natural products in their products. This company has so many good products that I have been given the opportunity to try out and this one has not disappointed just as the other products have not disappointed me.

Have you tried this product? I would love to hear your feelings on it. Leave a comment below and let me know.
