Get your daily dose of B-12 with Maxasorb B-12 Serum (Review)

Vita Sciences manufactures high quality supplements and lotions containing natural herbs, vitamins, and minerals.  The Maxasorb line of creams contain nutrients such as vitamin B12, vitamin D, vitamin E, melatonin and other nourishing ingredients. All of the products are hypoallergenic, non-greasy, easy to use and effective.

My Review:
I recently had the chance to review a bottle of Maxasorb B-12 Serum.  My doctor requires me to take B-12 pills everyday, which I hate.  When I found out that I could get my daily dose of B-12 by simply rubbing it in my hands, I had to give it a try.  It takes just two pumps of cream and it absorbs very quickly.  The scent is nice but does not last long.  It has a light moisturizing effect but does not last a long time either.  I have not noticed any reactions to my sensitive skin so I will continue to use it.  It definitely beats taking an extra pill everyday!  I would definitely recommend this to anyone who needs B-12 and wants a much easier way to get their daily dose.  Check out the website for more information.

Get soft, silky skin with GoPure Fractionated Coconut Oil (Review)

The Fractionated Coconut Oil by GoPure is considered an all-natural type of carrier oil that is able to easily absorb into your skin, which makes it a go-to option for all types of topical therapies. It offers a feather-light emollient, providing a soothing barrier, without the risk of clogging your pores, and is ideal for dry or otherwise troubled skin. It provides the skin with a non-greasy, silky smooth feel, unlike the other vegetable carrier oils currently available. It is completely soluble with all types of essential oils and is odorless and colorless.  It will not stain any fabric it comes in contact with. It also has a prolonged shelf life, which means it will not go rancid and is designed for topical use only.
My Review:
I recently had the chance to review a bottle of GoPure Fractionated Coconut Oil.  I have always been a huge fan of coconut oil but this is the first time I have used it in the liquid form.  I have always bought the tubs of solid oil that you have to let melt in your hand before applying.  Most of them leave me shiny and smelling like a Pina Colada.  That's fine with me but my husband hates the smell of coconut.  Since this oil from GoPure arrived, I will never go back to tub oils!  There is absolutely no scent to it.  It's a carrier oil so I can add my own essential oil to it if I want it to be scented.  it feels amazing as a massage oil and makes a great tanning oil.  I have been using it exclusively in my tanning bed and have gotten a nice tan from it.  It leaves my skin super soft and silky without the greasy look.  I would highly recommend this to anyone.  You can purchase it HERE on Amazon.

Take care of your callused feet easily with La Pedi-Bon (Review)

87% of adults in the US have some type of foot problem and one of the most common problems is calluses. Calluses are rough dry patches that form on the feet. Anyone with callused feet who want to have silky smooth healthy feet will love the La Pédi Bon callus remover.  This kit contains a battery operated foot callus remover, one replacement head, a cleaning brush, and instructions. Batteries are not included.

My Review: 
I recently had the chance to review a La Pédi Bon callus remover.  My pitiful feet were in dire need of this because I go barefoot all the time and I haven't been moisturizing them like I should be.  I didn't even realize how bad they were until I took a picture of them!  Summer is coming so it is time to get these ugly feet back to looking normal.
The first time I used La Pédi Bon, it made a big difference in how my feet felt and looked.  There was still a light callus and dry skin there but nothing compared to what it used to be.  It was so easy to use and automatically stopped if I pushed too hard.  I stopped when it felt smooth to me.

Every few days, I ran it over the spot again and my callus is literally disappearing!  Every time, my skin gets softer and smoother.  I love how this product requires virtually no effort.  No more tired arms from filing away with pumice and files to get callouses off!  I would definitely recommend La Pédi Bon to anyone who wants to get rid of calluses easily.  You can purchase it HERE on Amazon.

Create a beautiful photo blanket at (Review & Giveaway)

Keep you and your loved ones warm with a customizable photo blankets from CollageDotCom.  Each blanket is printed on high quality, durable fleece and is machine washable.  The shorter plush on the fleece blanket ensures your photos are as sharp as possible and is perfect for use as a wall hanging or quilt.
Photo blankets are the perfect, unique gift to show the loved ones in your life how much you care.

My Review:
I recently had the chance to review a customizable photo blanket from Collage.  I was able to choose any photo(s) and create my blanket easily online.  I chose these three photos that I took of my kids last fall.  I cherish the biggest picture because it was one of those rare moments that they allowed me to take their picture together without making silly faces.  It's one of my favorite pictures of them together so I wanted to get something special made with it.

I knew a photo blanket would be perfect for this.  The site was easy to navigate and it only took a few minutes to create my blanket.  I could change the color of my photos and the borders.  I could even add words if I wanted to!  There are lots of customization options to use if you wish.  I chose the simple black and white photos without any writing and I just love it!  The blanket is solid white on the back.  It is 50" X 60" and as you can see in the top photo, it is not large enough to cover a queen size bed.  It is the perfect size for lounging around or laying across a couch.  It would also make a nice wall hanging if you did not want to use it.  I think it would make a perfect gift idea for anyone.  Check out the website or follow them on FacebookTwitter, Pinterest, or Instagram.

Clean and Restore Your Leather Products with Leather Nova (Review)

Leather Nova was started with a goal to make the best leather care products, suitable for all types of leather surfaces.  Only high-grade polymers and premium ingredients are used in their conditioners and cleaners. The products are also non-toxic and environmentally friendly, plus they are non-greasy and will not leave any film or residue behind. All products include a complimentary applicator or microfiber towel, which allows for easy application.
My Review:

I recently had the chance to review three products by Leather Nova.  They sent me their Leather Cleaner, Leather Conditioner, & Conditioner & Cleaner.  Even though I have several leather items at home, I mainly wanted to try these products on the seats of my new Tahoe.  I just got it a few weeks ago and it is the first vehicle I have ever had with leather seats.  This truck is my baby and I want to do everything I possibly can to protect it inside and out.  Even though my seats weren't really dirty, I still tried it out.  First, I used the Leather Cleaner first and sprayed it on the included microfiber towel.  I wiped the seats down.  My seats looked great already!  I did notice the towel left little pieces behind but hopefully this will go away after it is washed.  Next, I applied the Leather Conditioner and left it on for an hour.  Then I buffed it away.  I did this on the two front seats and you could tell a difference from the back seats.  For the back seats, I used the Conditioner & Cleaner.  I just applied it with the included pad and allowed it to dry for thirty minutes.  After that, I buffed it out.  All of my seats looked amazing, clean, and restored.  I know it is very hard to show shiny black leather in photos but here are my before and after pictures of my seat...

Trust me, the photos do not show justice to what this stuff can do!  I would highly recommend Leather Nova to anyone who wants to clean and restore their leather products.  Check out the website or follow them on Facebook.

You get a salon quality Styling Brush, the innovative Detangling Brush and the Cosmetics Bag for easy storage all in one stylish set!  You will Immediately see an Improvement in the way your hair looks and feels.


My Review:
I recently had the chance to review a set of Hair Symphony brushes.  I wanted to try these for my daughter's hair.  She has long, baby fine hair that tangles easily.  She always gets mad when I brush her hair because she says I pull too hard.  When she puts her own hair up, she misses tangles and her hair looks awful.  When these brushes arrived, she immediately took them over.  She brushed the tangles out of her hair easily with both of them.  The larger brush, which is a styling brush now resides in her bathroom so she can use it everyday.  She put the pink detangling brush in her gym bag so she can put her hair up before basketball practice and games.

I am glad I have found a brush set that takes the tangles out of her hair painlessly.  I would highly recommend Hair Symphony to anyone.  Check out the website or follow them on Facebook or Twitter.

Get a Free Peeler with the NanoRazor 3" Ceramic Paring Knife (Review)

The Savvy Living NanoRazor 3" black ceramic paring knife is an all-around performance ceramic knife that is sharp, durable and delivers effortless & high precision. The free peeler included in the packaging can be re-arranged for both right handed and left handed consumers. This product is perfect fit for the healthy eating conscious consumers who love to enjoy the authentic taste of their fruit and vegetables.
Ceramic knives are sharper, more lightweight, and much easier to clean than steel ones. However, many people complain that ceramic knives are too fragile, chipping or shattering at the slightest bump. The Savvy Living NanoRazor is made using a special 4-step process which makes their blades sharper, denser, and more durable than those on regular ceramic knives.

My Review:
I recently had the chance to review a NanoRazor knife.  The knife arrived in a nice box with a free peeler.  They were both molded perfectly in foam so they could easily be stored away for safety.  The first thing I used the knife for was peeling potatoes.  It worked great and is extremely sharp.  I actually cut my thumb because I wasn't used to using such a sharp knife.  I decided to try the peeler while I was peeling.  It got the job done but not as quickly as the knife.  The peeler is not near as sharp either.  Next, I tried peeling apples with both items.  They both worked great again!  The peeler worked much better on apples because of the softer skin.  This is the first ceramic knife I have ever used and am glad to add it to my kitchen.  It is easy to hold onto and fits my hand nicely.  I would highly recommend this knife to anyone who wants a sharp, quality kitchen knife.  You can find out more about it at Savvy Living.

Keep the Cold Out and Body Heat In With the Goddess Rash Guard Compression Shirt (Review)

This Goddess Rash Guard Compression Shirt will increase workout effectiveness by offering unbelievable flexibility, comfort and moisture management with it's extremely high quality functional material design.  It is designed for active women of all levels, so this workout shirt is an essential game changer for your workout routine!
My Review:
I recently had the chance to review a Rash Guard Compression Shirt in my choice of colors.  I chose black because it is my favorite color and it goes with everything.  The shirt arrived just in time for a ski trip we had planned.  I thought it would be the perfect time to try it out.  I wore the Compression shirt with a pair of leggings as my base layer of clothing.  I wore another pair of jogging pants and a sweatshirt over them, then put my thin weather-proof snow suit on.  Normally, I would wear 3-4 shirts but I did not need to this time.  The Compression shirt kept my body heat in and kept the cold out.  I was able to ski all day without having to take warm up breaks.

I ordered the size large shirt all though I normally wear a medium.  I'm glad I did because it would be a tighter fit than I would like.  The shirt can be worn alone or underneath other shirts.  It is made of soft material that does not allow hair or fuzz to cling to it.  The stitching is made perfectly and has not raveled after several washings.  I would highly recommend the Goddess Rash Guard Compression Shirt to anyone who wants a comfortable shirt.  You can purchase it HERE on Amazon.

Take A Break With Mommy's Time Out Wine (Review)

Mommy's Time Out is a line of delicious, affordable wines made from Italian grapes that make great gifts or a fun girls night out.  Mom deserves a break, and Mommy's Time Out is a perfect way to sit back and relax.

Selective Wine Estates also produces two additional novelty labels including Dad's Day Off and First-Rate Old Fart.  Both make ideal gifts!
My Review:
I recently had the chance to review a bottle of Mommy's Time Out Wine of my choice.  I chose the Moscato because I prefer a fruity wine that can be drank anytime.  I like to drink a glass of wine and relax after a rough day or while I am scrolling through my endless emails.  I choose my wines by reading the bottle.  If it says "should be paired with fish or cheese", I tend to shy away from it.  I just want to drink it!  This is why I love this brand...Mommy's Time Out.  There are so many times during the day that I am sitting here by myself and nothing is going right.  I think to myself "Mommy needs a time out!"  How many of you do that?  This company  couldn't have picked a better name for a wine company.  We give our kids a time out so why can't we have one?  
The bottle arrived by FedEx in a cute blue satin bag.  It was freezing outside so the bottle was ice cold already.  It had a card attached that had a note inside...much agreed!

The bottle has the twist off top so you don't need a corkscrew to open it.  After pouring my first glass, I thought it was an odd flavor for Moscato.  It was a decent wine but was very light in flavor.  There wasn't a lot of fruit taste.  It is not a sweet wine like some Moscatos are.  It has a crisp flavor that lingers.
I would probably buy it again and I am looking forward to trying the other flavors.  I would recommend Mommy's Time Out Wine to anyone who loves wine and needs a time out!  Check out the website or follow them on Facebook.

Stream Your Instagram Feed With #Cube (Review)

#Cube is the living canvas for the Instagram photos and videos that matter most to you. Finally liberated from your smart devices, #Cube passively streams the candids of your friends, family and favorite people to you throughout the day. Photos and videos are streamed in real-time, bringing them straight from Instagram to your #Cube.

My Review:
I recently had the chance to review a #Cube.  To be honest, I wasn't sure what it was before I got it.  I thought it was something to display my Instagram photos but it is not.  After receiving it, I seen it is so much better than that.  You actually connect your Instagram account to it and it displays all of the photos and videos from your connections as they are posted, as long as there is a wifi connection.  You just set how fast the photos change and sit back and watch them roll!  You can see the back of the photo to see what is wrote on it and you can also "favorite" them.

The screen size is large enough that several people can watch it.  It is much nicer than trying to look at a little phone screen.  You can get the #Cube in other colors.  It also comes with a charger.

I love this new gadget and I highly recommend it to any fan of Instagram.  It makes a great gift idea.  Check out the website or follow them on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, or Google+.
