Moisturizing Hand Sanitizer


I received this Moisturizing Hand Sanitizer for free or at a discount for my honest review. To see my full disclosure click here.

With hand cleanliness being such a big deal right now, this is something that could really help with keeping the germs down.

This sanitizer is plant based and vegan friendly. It is a mushroom based sanitizer that should kill 99.9% of all germs. This hand sanitizer also contain antibacterial properties that could help with illnesses and keeping them down. This is skin friendly as well with moisturizers to help keep your skin from drying out like they do with many hand sanitizers.

The scent of this hand sanitizer is lemon balm. I’m not sure that is an accurate description though. I know that oils react differently to everyone as far as scent goes, but this does smell good in the bottle. I didn’t like how it smelled once I used it though. So this may vary by person, but thankfully it was not very strong and didn’t last very long (as far as the scent) so it’s not really something I would worry about too much.

Biotin Conditioner


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

This conditioner is a good one. I haven’t been able to say that about many of them out there recently so it’s a nice change with this one. I love that the ingredients are mostly natural things found in the environment. I really so far, have loved everything I have tried from this company.

This conditioner has biotin, B3 and Pea Sprout Extract which are all good things for your hair. This conditioner is creamy and feels good. You need to leave it in your hair for a few minutes to get the best benefits from this.  And of course, using it with the shampoo is a big help also because they both have the same great good stuff in them.

It’s simple to use, just like any other conditioner. After shampooing you put it in your hair and let it set for a few minutes before rinsing it out. My hair was very soft after using this and so far does appear to me that it’s looking better. Of course this could just be my imagination. I’ll have to use it for another week or so to be sure but so far I really like this stuff.

Biotin Shampoo


I received this Biotin Shampoo for free or at a discount for my honest review. You can see my full disclosure here.

I am always looking for a good shampoo and conditioner that will be good to both my hair and the environment. I am hopeful that I have found it now.

This shampoo has some great ingredients for your hair that should help it to become healthier all around. If you need thicker hair, this should help. If you are looking for your hair to just plain be more healthy, this shampoo will help. I look forward to using this shampoo for a while. I love the ingredients in this because they are mostly natural things that occur in the environment and they are good for your hair too.

I have always had trouble with my hair because the shampoos that I find aren’t the greatest for your hair. It seems the split ends alone are awful and I can’t get rid of them. I would love to say this will get rid of them, but I haven’t been using it long enough to know for sure yet. I think I am starting to notice a difference though so I am hoping it’s not just my imagination.

Bath Mat


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

I wish I had something like this when my kids were young. However, it still comes in very handy for my grand son who lives here with us.

 

This is two pieces, one for the knees and one for the elbows. This also has some pockets on both sides of the tub (in the tub and outside the tub). The elbow part goes over the edge so that one of the pockets go inside the tub and the other set of pockets are outside the tub.

 

I know that it can be difficult on both the knees and the elbows when giving the little one’s a bath, or at least it is for me. This has been so nice to have because my knees actually get a break and my elbows don’t hurt after the bath either. The material this is made of is fairly soft. I’m not sure what it is but it works well and feels good against the skin.

Sports Bra


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

I’ve never been one to wear sports bras, but this one seems pretty comfortable so far.

It’s pretty stretchy so it’s fairly comfortable as sports bras go. I’ve never been a big fan of them, but this isn’t too bad. It’s more of a tank top rather than a bra, but has the support of a bra. This is something I have not been able to find with most sports bras. So as far as that’s concerned, it’s probably better than most I have dealt with before.

The material is soft against your skin so that is nice too. The straps don’t dig into your shoulders. And it provides almost the same support as a regular bra. For me, these are all things I look for in a bra of any kind. I love the polyester/ spandex mix makes it so that it is breathable material. I really like that because it doesn’t seem like it will be too hot in the summer months here. Since summer here can be brutal, this is a big point for me.

For these reasons alone, I would recommend this to anyone, however, I have only been able to wear it once so far, so I’m not really sure about it yet. I will update this post later with my final thoughts on it at another time.

Belanko Whistling Tea Pot


I received this Belanko Whistling Tea Pot for free or at a discount for my honest review. If you would like to see my full disclosure click here.

I have to say that I adore this tea pot! I had been look for a new one for a while now and I think I finally found the one I want to use.

This kettle will whistle when the water begins to boil. It starts out soft and grows in intensity as the water gets warmer. I love the color of this pot. The pictures don’t show it very well but it is a beautiful powder blue that matches perfectly with my kitchen. I will be using this tea pot for a long time to come.

If you look closely at the handle, you will see a trigger there which is used to open the pour spout. It even stays open on it’s own. After you pull the trigger to open the pour spout, there is a button on top of the handle that is used to close the pour spout. I love that you don’t have to mess with the pour spout at all. The pot does everything but fill itself and pour your hot water.

I really wish that you could see the color better because it really is a beautiful color. I thought that when it got here it would not be like it was shown, but I am so happy that it is. You can get this tea pot here: https://belanko.com/collections/diamond-tea-kettle/products/belanko-2-7-quart-whistling-tea-kettle-gradient-blue

I would love to know if you have purchased this tea pot and what you thought about it. I have only used this twice so far, so I would love to hear from someone who has used this longer. Leave me a comment below and let me know what your thoughts on this kettle are.

Have a great day!

Colostrum Powder


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

Colostrum is so very important to animal babies so I guess it stands to reason that it could be good for people as well. Pure Velvet Extracts believes this to be the case so they have colostrum powder that can be added to your diet.

According to the website, colostrum is good for several things such as one’s immune system. This is what it does for newborn calves so why wouldn’t it do the same thing for people. The calf must get colostrum in the first 24 hours of life or many times they will not survive. The cow will produce colostrum for a couple days until the milk supply comes in. This colostrum provides the newborn calf everything it needs to start off life such as vitamins and minerals. The colostrum also helps to get the digestion system and immune system kicked off so the calf will live. This is supposed to provide many of the same benefits to humans.

This colostrum has been produced ethically and in a GMP certified facility. This is made completely GMO free and made in the USA. I am all for supporting companies in the USA. This would be good for athletes and gym goers or for people just looking to work toward better health. This powder will help with gut health and immune system function too.

 

You can get this from the Pure Velvet Extracts site at: https://www.purevelvetextracts.com/products/colostrum-powder-for-humans

Night Cream


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

So far I really like this night cream. This one is used at night and it helps to soften the skin and is supposed to help with fine lines and wrinkles.

I don’t know how well it actually works for the fine lines and wrinkles but I do know that my skin feels soft after using this cream at night for the last week. I would love to say it helps with aging but I just haven’t used it long enough to know that for sure yet.

I have liked this company for a while now. The products they put out are good and they seem to work. This cream goes on easy and doesn’t feel oily at all. I really dislike a cream that feel oily, even though some oil is supposed to be good for the skin. However, I like this way this one feels. It’s very creamy and nice.

Face Mask Bracket


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

I know that most of us don’t like wearing a mask, and I hope that we can end this practice soon, but in the meantime, I hope maybe this will make wearing a mask easier for some. I was hoping it would help me but it didn’t.

This bracket goes under your mask which is supposed to allow for easier breathing. I have a very hard time wearing a mask for anything more than 5 minutes. I was hoping this would help me to be able to go out more often. I think I’ve left the house 5 or 6 times since this all started because I have very hard time wearing a mask.

 

However, a friend said that it made wearing his mask more bearable. So maybe it’s a preference thing because it worked well for him, but it didn’t for me. I am hopeful this could possibly help some others who have difficulty wearing a mask or just plain don’t like them. If this would make things  just a little bit easier on you then I would hope you give it a try.

I imagine that it’s going to be one of those things that will work for some but not for others. I just hope that maybe it will help one more person be able to get out a little more until this pandemic ends.

Manuka Honey Balm


I recieved this Manuka Honey Balm for free or at a discount for my honest review. To see my full disclosure click here.

I have dry hands. Not just your normal dry skin hands, but they get so dry that they actually hurt, dry hands. I have been looking for something that would actually help with this and have been unable to find anything that would work for more than an hour. However, now I have!

This little jar here is a miracle balm for me. I have used it once so far. Yes, you heard that right, once! I’ve always had to put lotion on several times a day to try to keep my hands from hurting. I wash my hands probably 50 times a day, and no that is not an exaggeration. It’s probably actually shy of how many times I wash my hands in a day. If you work a homestead, or a farm, have kids, and animals you get it. We wash our hands A LOT!

 

That is why I say this balm works miracles. I have had to use lotion several times a day to try to keep my hands from getting so very dry. This stuff, I put it on and I haven’t had dry hands at all just yet. It’s been a week today. I think I will need to use again in the next day or so, but a week without having to use lotion multiple times a day. I will take it and I will be using this stuff from here on out.

I have to say, there is only one bad thing I have found about this balm. It is very oily when you put it on. I despise oily lotions. Usually if a lotion is oily, it goes right out the door and this one almost did too because of this. After about 5 minutes or so, that oily feeling went away. I thought, ok, I’ll give it a chance then. And a week later, I haven’t used it again so far. This stuff is great!

So to recap, I’m going to give you the good, the bad, and the ugly.  It’s oily when you put it on and it takes about 5 minutes to soak into the skin. That is the bad. I love how well it works for really dry skin. That is the good. I think the ugly would be the size of the container because it is very small. However, it doesn’t take a lot of the balm for one use so it should still last for a bit anyway.

 

So if you need something for really dry skin, give this a try. I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Biotin Hair Serum


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

As soon as this came in the house, my daughter grabbed it and started using it. Since her hair is very dry, she was hoping this would help the health of her hair.

With this serum, you put in your damp hair and rub it on the scalp. It also says it can be left in over night if your hair is  that damaged. This serum is supposed to help with thickness also.

 

 

The scent of this serum is wonderful. It has a fruity scent with a bit of citrus mixed in. It’s pretty thick as well and goes in easy. I think it’s supposed to be washed out but it does say that it can be left in overnight. I guess if your hair is that damaged, it would be good to leave the serum in all night and wash it out in the morning shower.

 

 

 

You can get this here: https://pureautynaturals.com/products/biotin-hair-growth-serum  I would love to know what you think of this if you bought it or already have it. Leave a comment below and let me know.

Worlds Okayest Gamer Shirt


This post may contain affiliate links.  This means if you make a purchase, I will receive a small commission at no cost to you. To see my full disclosure, click here. I received this Gamer Shirt for free or at a discount for my honest review.

I got this shirt for my daughter because we like to tease each other about everything. She likes to game on Xbox and always says she is “ok” as a gamer so when this review came up, I had to have it!

She, like me, is not thrilled about having her picture taken, but she does love the shirt. She says it fits good, so the size is about right on for the XL. It appears to be made well and has gone through the wash a couple times now and is holding up great so far.

To get this shirt you need to go here: https://www.nerdyshirts.com/products/world-s-okayest-gamer-t-shirt?variant=19057750802489 This Gray color is the only color that I believe is available but my daughter loves the look of it. I don’t think the pictures really do it much justice. The shirt is softish. Meaning that it is soft, but I have felt softer materials. However, that doesn’t seem to detract from the way my daughter feels about it.

 

 

The lettering appears to be done well too, because after a few washings, it is still there and doesn’t seem to be pulling up anywhere. I know in the past I have received or bought a few shirts that the lettering starts to come off after just one or two washings so I happily impressed that this one did not do that. My hope is that this shirt will last for a bit of time.

As a gamer my daughter also has a stream that she does for her gaming located here if you would like to check it out. She is also on Facebook and Instagram. So, if you’re into that sort of thing, go check out the World’s Okayest Gamer!

Have a great day!

Vertical Phone Stand


This post may contain affiliate links. This means if you make a purchase, I will receive a small commission at no cost to you.I received this Vertical Phone Stand for free or at a discount for my honest review. You can see my full disclosure here.

I have a hard time with these stands because no  of them seem to work very well or they are just so weak they fall apart after only a couple uses.

I have to say, when I first saw this one, I didn’t have high hopes that it would last or work for long. I was pleasantly mistaken. This has now been on the hubby’s phone for a month. It is still there and still works well.

This stand has adhesive on the back of it and you just stick it to your phone. The stand itself appears to be magnetic because it doesn’t open when you don’t want it to. You have to physically open this and set it up which is nice because that means it won’t be in your way. There is also a pocket that you can use for your cards if you don’t carry a wallet.

So I think I have to say, that I do like this stand where most others have not worked well for us.

Soap Dispenser


This post may contain affiliate links. This means if you make a purchase, I will receive a small commission at no cost to you. I received this Soap Dispenser for free or at a discount for my honest review. See my full disclosure policy here.

I love the looks of this soap dispenser. It has an expensive look to it when it really isn’t expensive at all.

 

There is a plastic bottle inside the container that the soap goes into. There is no way to open the outer container so if the inside bottle breaks, there is no way that I can see to replace it. At that point, I’m not sure this would be usable any longer. I guess it would depend on if or how it breaks on the inside. If you don’t get the top screwed on right, it will pop off very easily so just make sure you have it on right and it screws on tight. These are the only two things I have found about this that I don’t like.

 

I love that this looks like an expensive soap dispenser. I love the marble look on the outside. I like that they have other items available that can go with this dispenser. I love the way it looks period.
