SunRype Products Review

SunRype gluten free vegan kosher energy

I was contacted by the lovely Shelley Carter with SunRype Products and asked if I would be interested in trying out a couple of their new products.

Fruit & Chia bars which are completely Gluten and Peanut free as well as Vegan and certified Kosher.  These bars are made using whole grain gluten-free oats and fruit.  They have two flavor options, Apple Cinnamon and Mango Twist.  They are a great source of vital nutrients such as magnesium, phosphorus, fiber, and omega 3 fatty acids.

Next is the Energy bars.  These bars contain 7g of plant protein.  They are also Gluten and Peanut free as well as Vegan.  The bars are a great source of Iron and fiber.  They come in two flavor combinations as well. Chocolate Coconut and Raspberry Chocolate flavors.

Now I have a family that loves to grab a granola bar for a snack and I have even spent time in the kitchen making my own just so that I know exactly what is being put into them.  But sometimes I just don’t have time for that and honestly I don’t like baking.

So I put them to the test with three teenagers (one who happens to have Celiac disease) and my 3 littles.  And of course myself.  The taste testing result was as follows:

Two teenage boys said they were good but had a strange texture.  (They are sticky so not crumbly like the granola bars that they are used to).

Teenager with Celiac disease said they were really good and that she would eat them again.

My 3 littles LOVED them.  They wanted more as a snack later.

And I thought they were tasty as well.  I would gladly take them on the go or eat one for breakfast as I am not a big breakfast eater but will usually try to get at least some calories going in my body.  They are small sized bars but surprisingly filling.

I would gladly purchase this product.

If you are interested in buying them you can click here to find a list of grocery stores that carries them.

You can also order them by the case online here.

For more information and a full list of products you can visit there website here.

I want to thank Shelley for giving me the opportunity to work with her and in doing so, I have found a delicious alternative to some of the granola and protein bars that I currently purchase.

TruSkin Naturals Review and Giveaway

TruSkin Naturals Vitamin C Serum

About a month ago I ordered some vitamin C serum from TruSkin Naturals.  I have always liked vitamin C to use on those dreadful, I hate to even say out loud, **whispers** age spots.

To my surprise they asked me to do a review of their product and they also sent me a free one to use in a giveaway!!!

I have been using the product for about a month now and have noticed a little bit of a difference on a spot on my face in which was really bugging me.  I spent a lot of time in the sun in my early teens before I learned the importance of sunscreen, and it takes approximately 20 years for sun damage to appear, so this is why I am starting to notice it in my 40’s.  **coughs**

I have noticed a considerable difference in the over all appearance of my skin since starting to use this product.  It has lightened up some of the dreadful spots and evened out the tone of my skin.  So much so that I plan to give some of their other products a try.

I am a licensed Aesthetician so I am always looking for new beauty regimens to try to slow down the aging process.  My best advice is to always protect your skin when outside.  People don’t realize that you can still get a sun-kissed glow even with wearing sunscreen.  The sunscreen just helps you not to burn which is what causes the damage.

Reflections From Me

 

 

~Squid London Review~

I was contacted by Emma from Squid London who so generously mailed me one of their changing color umbrellas to try.  All the way from London!  It took a while to get here but imagine my kids excitement when I told them about an umbrella that changes colors in the rain!!!

Squid London makes various rain gear all of which is made from a material that changes colors from dry to wet.  Now we don’t get much rain here in the high desert…but in the last few days it has pretty much been raining non stop.   So we finally got to put the umbrella to the test.

Squid London Rain Gear

As you can see in the middle picture it starts out white and as soon as the rain starts to hit the surface it begins changing colors.

The umbrella is a durable material and the perfect size for small children. And all 3 of my toddlers were able to open and close it without any problems.  I have been carrying it in the car to walk the kids to and from anywhere we go.  Squid London makes items for adults too!  If you would like to see more of their products please visit their website squidlondon.com.

~IntelliDent MouthGuard And Toothbrush Shield~

I was contacted by Lisa at IntelliDent to do a review of the latest products, toothbrush and mouth-guard shields.  Please note that the following review is of my own opinion and all words and photos are that of my own.

I am sure that everyone thinks that because they clean their teeth with their toothbrush that their toothbrush is clean right?  Wrong.  The bacteria living on your toothbrush includes fungi, viruses, and just a profusion of various germs.  Germs that can live for months…although if you are keeping your toothbrush for months then you have horrible hygiene.

Now, I have known for quite some time that upon flushing your toilet, germs can travel as far as a 6 foot radius.  I have also read that scientists have found more than 10 million bacteria on ONE. SINGLE. TOOTHBRUSH.  Some of that being feces people!  After reading that I always flushed with the lid down.  Now, how many of you have your toothbrush container sitting on the sink right next to the toilet? And also how many of you share a toothbrush holder with other member’s of your family’s toothbrushes?  There’s enough germs jumping back and forth between your toothbrushes to put a germaphobe into OCD overload.  Well that’s where these fabulous toothbrush covers come in handy.

Here’s a great article entitled “The Disgusting Truth About Your Toothbrush” I found.

IntelliDent Review #toothbrushes #germs #bacteria #health #toothbrushgerms

The container I received for review came with 10 shields and they last up to 7 days and then you just throw them away.  This cuts down on the costs of toothbrushes especially for a person like me who buys a new toothbrush for her kids every time one comes in contact with the floor.  The toothbrushes…not the kids.

They also have mouth-guard shields.  I have a mouthpiece that I have to wear at night because I grind my teeth in my sleep.  Probably due to the fact I deal with 3 toddlers all day.  Imagine how horrified I was after reading about all the bacteria that lives in the little plastic container that holds my said mouthpiece.  And I wash it before putting it in there!  Goodbye plastic container…hello disposable mouth-guard shields.  I think I will be taking this product to show my dentist as well.

I want to thank Lisa and the IntelliDent team for letting me review their product.

~Fit Organics Product Review~

I was so lucky to have kind of stumbled upon a conversation on Twitter with a representative of the Fit Organic Company.  I happened to mention how much I love the fruit and vegetable wash, which I have been using for a few years now, and they asked if they could send me some samples of their new products.  Imagine my surprise when I opened the box to find this…

Fit Organic Product Review Domesticated Momster

Those are 6 full sized bottles and a strainer/bowl combo!

Needless to say I was super excited to try these products out!

I wil start off with the fruit and vegetable spray.  I can’t say enough about this stuff.  Have you ever been to the store and brought home apples that felt like they were caked with wax?  Disgusting right?  Well I keep the handy spray bottle filled and right next to the sink.  I give the fruit or vegetables a good spray.  (This is where now the strainer/bowl that they gave me comes in handy).  I spray the fruit or vegetables in the strainer part…give them a good rub…rinse with water and then place the strainer in the bowl and let dry.  Then my mini-monsters usually eat whatever has been washed right from the bowl.  I can’t say enough how awesome this product is and I will continue to use it for years to come.  You can read about or purchase it here.

Next will be the dish liquid.  It was strange at first for it’s not thick like regular dish washing liquid that I use nor does it suds up either.  This is probably due to the fact that it doesn’t have all the nasty chemicals that they use in other brands of dish soap.  It is an organic product.  It still cleaned my dishes just fine and because it’s a safer to use product I will surely be buying more of it.  You can read about and purchase here.

The cleaner and degreaser spray comes in a concentrated form which can be diluted to make up to 4 gallons from the above container.  And it works great on grease.  I used it on my stove after cooking bacon.  We all know what a mess that makes.  I sprayed it and waited a couple minutes then used a hot rag and wiped.  NO ELBOW GREASE INVOLVED.  And again because I know it is safer to use then other products I will buy this product again.  You can read about and purchase here.

The dishwasher liquid unfortunately didn’t live up to our hard water problems here in rural Nevada.  I have found that there is only one kind that keeps the dishes from coming out of the dishwasher with hard water stains.  And I am quite certain that is because of certain chemicals in my leading brand.  I will say though that the Fit Organic brand did better then other brands with the organic label on them.  Therefore, if you don’t have horribly hard water then I highly recommend Fit Organic if you are looking for an organic dishwasher liquid. Comes in citrus scent as well.  You can read about and purchase here.

Last but not least the laundry detergent.  Now I will honestly admit here that I am just very addicted to one brand of laundry detergent because well, when I scratch my clothes the smell that is released is amazing.  I know it’s strange but I just don’t see me ever changing laundry detergents.  But I will say that Fit Organic’s laundry detergent did the job of cleaning the clothes and they even make a gentle baby formula, so if you are looking to go the organic route it’s a great product and it even comes in “he” for energy saving washers and citrus as well.  You can read about and purchase here.

I want to thank Fit Organic for giving me the wonderful opportunity to try their new line of products.  Did I also mention that none of their products are tested on animals?  Makes their products even more fabulous! They also contain no synthetic detergents or artificial surfactants. They are a certified USDA organic product.

Disclosure:  I received these products for review and all the words and opinions above are of my own.

ZIC Folding Reading Glasses ~ Review

I was contacted by Daniel about doing a review for ZIC Folding Reading Glasses.  He informed me that these reading glasses were simple and durable.  Of course the first thought that came to my mind was “Oh my 3 little monsters will put the durability to the test!”  Challenge accepted.

Upon receiving the package and opening it up, my 3 year old INSTANTLY wanted to play with them.  So of course I let her.  It wasn’t 5 minutes and she had popped the arm off.  But much to my surprise …it popped right back on with ease!  She was unable to break them.

ZIC Reading Glasses Review

As you can see in the picture they are sleek and made of a very durable plastic.  The arms of the glasses move up and down to form it’s own carrying case as well and there is a small clip (like that of a pen) on the side of each frame for easy storage in a pocket or bag.

ZIC Reading Glasses Review

All of the items above are included with the package of eyewear.  I chose red but there is an assortment of colors.

Below is a short video showing just how flexible and on the go these reading glasses really are.

Enjoy,
