Total Hair Repair Oil #Review #FoxBrim

foxbrim2

 

I know I have mentioned before how thick Tink’s hair is.  She recently decided to have a couple of inches cut off, and the curls and waves returned with a vengeance.  Products that worked in the past were not working as well with the curls and waves.  We needed something to tame it.  She decided to try FoxBrim Total Hair Repair Oil.  Her hair wasn’t damaged per se (she does use a flat iron every so often and a hair dryer about once a week) so I didn’t know if she would get all the benefits form the Total Hair Repair Oil.

According to FoxBrim, the Total Hair Repair Oil contains key natural ingredients including “organic argan oil, jojoba oil, shea butter, grapeseed oil, and sunflower oil.”  I have used these ingredients separately for different things, so I was intrigued as to how they would respond together in a hair product.

Tink loves this!  It helps keep her hair straight without weighing it down.  It also helps tame it on the extra humid days we have in Texas.  It makes her hair soft and manageable.

You can find FoxBrim Total Hair Repair Oil on Amazon.

Girls’ Night Out #WhatNightWine Glass #Review

I recently had a sort of high school reunion with classes 1986-1993; I was class of 1991.  Boy did I feel old.  I was hesitant about going because I didn’t know everyone that was going, but I am so happy that I went.  This “reunion” of sorts gave me the opportunity to meet with friends I haven’t seen in forever due to lives getting busy.  One of my friends, L,  I hadn’t seen in person in 9 years and another one was 20 years (YIKES!).  We all picked up right where we left off like no time had passed.  I can’t even describe how wonderful it was.

One of my friends, M, lives in a different state so she wasn’t able to attend.  M does plan on visiting this summer so L and I decided we would have a weekend sleepover for the three of us.  I can’t wait!  It is going to be so much fun.

M, L, and I were talking about the things we want to do when M is here.  Of course drinking wine is on our list.  I found the PERFECT wine glass for this weekend.

Really, does it get any better than this?

I found this wine glass on Amazon.  I have a total of 3 of them.  I bought two and received one of them for free to review.  I did buy one before I received a discount code to get one free (sorry, I can’t offer this to you).  I was worried about wine glasses being shipped.  I shouldn’t have worried though.  Each glass came bubble-wrapped in a box within a box.  I love the saying on the wine glass, and I love the thickness of the glass.  I have had thin wine glasses in the past, and needless to say, they didn’t last long.  Who needs a thin wine glass?  It spells disaster.

On the Amazon page for the company it states that the wine glass is “high quality USA made Libbey glassware.”  I absolutely love Libbey glassware!

At the time of publication, the “What Night” Funny Wine Glass is available on Amazon for $14.99.  It is a great price for a cute and fun wine glass.  This should be in every wine lover’s collection.  Mother’s Day is coming up so this would be a good gift to get mom so she can relax.

Beard Oil #Review #RealMenDoBeards


beardoil3
*Sigh* My hubby has a beard and is determined to let it get long. It was wiry and all over the place. He was not pleased with this. He has tried Beard Oil and uses it at least twice a week. He admits he would get better results using it daily (as the directions say), but he is not a morning person so he forgets. He loves this beard oil and recommends it to those with beards. His beard has never felt as soft as this before.

You can buy Beard Oil on Amazon.  At the time of publication, Beard Oil has a sale price of $14.99.  This is an excellent price for how much is in the bottle.  The bottle contains 60mL or 2 fluid ounces of product.

Rash Guard for Men #Review

I reviewed this product on Amazon.  You can find the review here.

My husband loves riding his motorcycle.  He is not fond of riding it in the cold due to the temperatures.  He enjoyed wearing the rash guard shirt to add an extra layer of warmth so he could ride in the chilly temperatures.  He is more than excited to wear it at the beach.  He is a ginger so he has fair, fair skin.  We always worry about the sun’s rays on his skin.

The rash guard is true-to-size.  It fit perfectly.  After he wears it, I throw it in the washer and hang to dry.  It dries quickly.

Compression Shirt for Women #Review

I reviewed this product on Amazon.  You can click here to see it.

I love a rash guard/compression shirts.  I was weary about ordering one online due to sizes not always being the same.  This one did not disappoint.  The shirt is true to size.

I love wearing it under my active wear when I go walking, especially during the cold temps that we have right now.  I am excited about wearing it to the beach.  I am always looking at ways to reduce my sink’s exposure to the sun while still enjoying the outdoors.

At the time of publication, this shirt is selling for $26.99.  You can buy it on Amazon.

GrillFella BBQ Wok in Copper #Review #GrillFella

grill2

I received the GrillFella BBQ to review.  All opinions are my own.  I would not recommend something I do not like.

My hubby recently bought a fire pit.  It comes with a grill you can set on the top.  He grilled some chicken New Year’s Eve, and it was delicious!  I have always wanted to grill vegetables but was afraid they would fall through the grill’s spaces (and it would).  I was so happy to receive this BBQ wok to try.

I wanted to try something simple at first as I am not a chef nor do I play one on TV.  I cut up some zucchini and yellow squash, added olive oil, salt and pepper.  I put it in the BBQ wok and put it on top of the fire pit’s grill.  It worked out perfectly.  I would just lightly stir the vegetables so they cooked evenly.  I don’t know how long I had them on the grill (remember I’m not a chef).  The GrillFella BBQ wok made cooking the vegetables on the fire pit so easy!  I didn’t take pictures because I thought I would get another chance to use the fire pit to cook, but mother nature decided we would have a cold winter in Texas.

One of the things I like about the wok is that it comes with a divider so you can separate things you want to cook.

It comes with a divider and there are three slots to choose.

I recommend this for anyone with an outside grill whether a charcoal grill, propane grill, natural gas grill, or a fire pit. It would be perfect to take on camping trips and to your favorite cookouts.

At the time of publication, you can find this on Amazon for $19.99. It would be a perfect gift for the person that loves to grill!

Purex Power Shot #Giveaway

*The Purex brand provided me with a sample of Purex PowerShot detergent in exchange for a product review. However, all opinions expressed here are my own.

Purex has once again surprised me with a new product. When I was the only one doing laundry, my detergent lasted like it was supposed to. I measured to the correct mark and tried not to spill any. Once my children have started doing laundry, the liquid detergent does not last anything like it is suggested on the bottle. They do measure, but they don’t pay attention to which line they are to use. It doesn’t matter how many times I show them or mention it to them.

 

IMG_2992

There is nothing easier than using Purex PowerShot.  The slogan is Flip.  Dose.  Done.  It doesn’t get any easier than that.

IMG_2991

It is truly this simple.  My husband doesn’t mind doing laundry now either.  I don’t have a messy bottle after my children do the laundry.  The only time more than one dose is needed is for extra dirty clothes, and we have had some after working in our flower beds recently.

This detergent cleans just like the other Purex detergents.  I love Purex detergents.

I am always looking for different sweeteners besides sugar. My body is changing the way it processes things so I need to try different things. I had the opportunity to try Morning Pep’s xylitol so I decided t go for it.

Here is what Morning Pep says about its product:

The grains are bigger than regular sugar, but that is the only difference I have noticed. It sweetens my coffee just like regular sugar, and I use the same amount. You use the same amount of xylitol that you do with regular sugar. I have read that it is possible to have some stomach discomfort when using xylitol, but I have not had that effect at all.

I will purchase MorningPep’s xylitol again. You can purchase it here on Amazon.

Indian Healing Clay Review

clay

 

 

I have reviewed this clay on Amazon; you can find my review here.   At the time of publication, the Indian Healing Clay was on sale for $12.95 which is a great price.

The product is dried clay.  You add one part clay to three parts water.  My daughters and I did one tablespoon to 3 tablespoons water, and it was enough for one person to use.

I liked using the clay with just water, and Martha did as well.  Tink likes trying different things with the clay.  She mixed it with fractionated coconut oil and different essential oils.  She was pleased with the results.  Tink said her face never felt so soft and she felt her face stayed clearer for a longer time than with other face masks she has used.

This is a good product.  It is one I like to use once a week.  I always have to look for it as my daughters use it as well.  You can buy it here on Amazon.
