Herb Theory for Hair, Skin and Nails Review


 I wasn't sure what to expect from these because I've never taken anything like this product.  I had been taking them for a month and wasn't sure if I had anything in particular to say.  About 2 weeks later I was brushing my hair in the mirror and I realized that my hair had grown considerably. So then I used a hand mirror so that I could look at the back of my hair in the big mirror.  My hair had grown a lot and was shinier and healthy looking. .I’m 55 years old and my hair is looking wonderful!  I've ordered more Hair Skin and Nails and I’m telling my friends. I am totally pleased. Thank you Herb Theory!

KG Baby Baltic Amber Teething Necklace Review


I had only heard of these beads used for teething once before. So I thought that I would do some research on the subject. I was surprised that they were popular and had been for quite some time. I really didn't know very much about amber in general other than thinking it was a stone. It is not a stone. It is actually resin and is a fossil not a stone.
Baltic amber contains analgesic properties and helps take the edge off of many types of discomfort associated with dental issues, headaches, joint pain, etc. It is a well known European method to help decrease the pain associated with teething In many different and subtle ways, succinic acid helps boost the body's own natural healing ability and immune system.

Hippocrates the father of medicine, wrote about and described medicinal properties and methods of application of Baltic amber. Throughout Ancient Rome, Baltic amber was used as medicine and as a widely used method of protection against different diseases. Albert The Great, born in 1193 who later became a Dominican monk, called Natural Baltic Amber “Succinium” and stated that it was the most effective medicine of the time followed by other substances such  as ocastoreum, mors, camphor, tartarus, and aurum. A Nobel Prize winner, Robert Kock (1886)  confirmed its positive influence and discovered that there is no risk of the accumulation of surplus amounts of succinic acid in the human body.

Natural Sweetly Citron Insect Repellent Spray



I have finally found an insect repellent that I will not mind at all using on my grandkids! They are young and I don't like the idea of putting chemicals on their skin.  I don't care much for using products that contain harmful things like Deet. But when the insect are biting especially mosquitoes, chiggers and ticks, oh my goodness I dread those things!  That's just some of what we will soon be up against around here now that the weather is warming up.

 I must say that this smells wonderfully. No chemical smell of any kind. This really will be a pleasant product to use.  I always dread bug season, not only for the bugs but because I hate using chemicals on my skin.
The ingredients are safe and there are side benefits besides repelling insects. The scents have been known to have a calming effect and also can help relieve stress and nervous exhaustion.
Lavender Essential Oil
Citronella Essential Oil
Lemon Essential Oil
Vanilla Extract
Water
Repels mosquitoes for up to 2-4 hours
Pleasant Aroma of Lavender, Lemon, Citronella and Vanilla Extract

2 CREE LED Flashlight with Magnetized Base Review + Giveaway Ends 3/31


It's time for another giveaway! 

What would you reach for right now if the was a power outage or emergency situation?
How about a flashlight that only takes 3 AAA batteries and has plenty of light?  This flashlight has a magnetic base and you can keep it right on top of your fridge.  No more looking around and wondering where the flashlight is.

When my boys were little I had a real hard time keeping an emergency flashlight. Some little guy would get his hands on it and by the time I needed to use it, the batteries were dead or the flashlight was MIA. and batteries were dead.   Flashlights were so different back then. They had bulbs that used up more power and They took larger C and D batterie which were expensive. So letting kids play with flashlight was not a good idea unless of course you had an endless supply of those old bulky C and D batteries and bulbs on hand.

When I think back now it sure does seems like I was buying batteries for something on every grocery trip. I There wasn't even a Walmart around back then in California. Imagine that?  I  think the bulbs were  more sensitive too. Flashlight falls a couple times (or dropped) and the filament breaks. So then  I started hiding it on top off the fridge and of course it would roll off  and sometimes it was behind the fridge and to find it required another flashlight to spot it.

I remember that flashlights were bigger and heavier back then.  I lived back in the Stone Ages and I was a single mother with 3 boys and they could be like little tornados. How on earth did I manage to keep up with them?  I couldn't begin to say. I do know that they grew up to be wonderful guys and between them have given me lots of grandkids.

These days my flashlight is lighter and rechargeable and it's in my kitchen.and plugged into a wall outlet.  So getting this new one is a wonderful thing. I'm plan to keep this one in my car. The magnetic base is cool because it's like having an extra hand.
This is perfect to keep in the car for emergencies.  As a matter of fact that's exactly where my flashlight is. I've broken down at night and sat on the side of the road in the dark.  I am very impressed with this light. It is super bright and it's very sturdy too.
One lucky winner will find out for their own self, maybe it will be YOU!
I want you to comment below and tell me where would you store the flashlight if you won? (Must comment to enter)

MeasuPro Digital Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor Review




I've been taking my blood pressure at home for years using one of those wrist cuff monitors. Although I had never attempted taking it with a regular cuff and stethoscope and I did pick up both at an auction. I had no idea that it was so tricky to do. So I gave up on those and just kept using the wrist cuff. But now thanks to MeasuPro, those days are over!  I can also tell you that I had been very interested in trying this product for several reasons,  I'm starting to get up there in age now (55) and there has been a history of high blood pressure (hypertension) in my family.

I know that high blood pressure is a serious problem and it can lead to some serious problems such as coronary heart disease, heart failure, stroke and kidney failure and bunch of other health problems.  Many people that have high blood pressure may have no idea. It has no signs or symptoms and many adults have had it for years without knowing it. When that happens we now know that high blood pressure has already done damage to our heart, kidneys and blood vessels. They estimate that about 1 in 3 adults in this country has high blood pressure.


The best and smartest way to stay on top of high blood pressure is to monitor it at home. Whether or not you have been diagnosed with it or you haven't been, taking your own blood pressure often is a tremendously helpful way to be proactive in your health and the health of those that you love.

The MeasuPro Digital Arm Blood Pressure Monitor is exceptional. It's very easy to use and set up. The direction are clear and easy to understand and follow. It comes with a product manual (with directions in English, French, Italian, Dutch and Spanish) and the customer support info is on the back of the manual and includes a phone number,  a street address as well as an email address which is a great thing to know because I've often had a tough locating that info for products I've bought in the past.

The blood pressure reading done with the MeasuPro are equivalent to those by a trained person using the cuff and stethoscope auscultation method.  I can tell you that the results are consistently accurate when takes 5 times over a 15 minute period compared with my old wrist cuff which had clearly inaccurate results several times during that 15 minute test. Just like my old wrist cuff this one also keeps track of 2 separate users history. Although I must add that the MeasuPro is far easier to access one user over another because the history is stored separately which is really a lot handier.

The wrist cuff was different and I had often experienced user history accidently being deleted on several occasions and it just was a problem that I had to live with. The MeasuPro is different and there are 2 separate buttons and each one keeps track a user's measurements. Another thing I like is this one lets you see where the measurement is on a scale from being optimal, normal high normal, mild and so on which instantly lets you know where you are at as far as your pressure and pulse.

I'm very much pleased with my new MeasuPro Upper Arm Digital Blood Pressure Monitor. I will definitely recommend this to my family and friends.  This is available on Amazon and qualifies for Prime.

Acu-Life Dri-Eze Hearing Aid Dehumidifier Review #DriEze


I am one of the 35 million Americans with hearing loss. 
My hearing loss is severe and to me it means that I have a hearing aid in my only hearing ear so maintaining my hearing aid is very important to me.

 Without it, I would have very little hearing at all.  The supplies that my hearing aid specialist had given me were the only products that I had known. So I was over the top thrilled when I contacted and asked if I would be interested in reviewing 3 Acu-Life products including the  Dri-Eze Hearing Aid Dehumidifier. Of course my answer was yes.

The single most important thing to know when you wear a hearing aid is that moisture is going to be an on going issue. Moisture from perspiration, condensation, high humidity are things that can cause a hearing aid to malfunction.  It's very important to use a dehumidifier daily.  My old one was twice the size of the Dri-Eze and it had a removable piece that needed to be heated in the microwave. She told me that she had melted hers by overheating and so I sensed it was a hassle to use. She also never indicated that there were other products that would not require heating. Of course I in turn eventually melted the removable part but continued using it anyway. I am very happy with this new one! It's much smaller which I love because I can pack it to take along much easier. I love that I just have to simply open, drop my hearing aid in and close the top. It's a breeze!

The Acu-Life Hearing Aid Cleaner is an awesome product. It contains the 5 tools needed for daily  cleaning and maintenance.  It's so very important to have the correct tool needed in order to maintain a hearing aid.  This audio kit is incredibly handy. It's got a built in case along with the tool.
1. Brush 
2. Pick
3.Tube and Vent Cleaner
4. Battery Door Opener
5. Battery Magnet Tool

I wasn't sure whether I would like this because it is so different from what I had gotten used to.  I only had to think about it for a minute because that's all it took for me to realize that this was a huge improvement. My other hearing aid tool consisted of  a couple of single tools that were quite flimsy and very small. The tiny size means that they can be easily misplaced. (I've also lost a few)  I truly love this product. It has to be the greatest thing to give to someone with a hearing aid.


The Ear Wax Removal Syringe is wonderful. It's very simple to use.  I had never used one of these before and I was so surprised that it did not hurt in any way. I had wanted to try one of these but was just somewhat scared to. I always had a doctor do this for me and truthfully I wasn't sure what they actually used because I didn't want to look. We normally do have wax build up occasionally and we all know that poking our ears is a no no.  This is an awesome item to have and it's easy to use too.

They have a variety of hearing aid accessories  as well as many other helpful health aids. I had no idea that Acu-Life made so many products. They have been in business for 35 years. Headquarters are located in North Attleboro, Massachusetts and they partner with customers in over 50 countries across the world.

Their Mission Statement states:

Derma Roller System Review


I want to tell you all about the Derma Roller System.
This is the same technique that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have used to maintain their youthful appearance.  Now you can use this at home. It's safe and effective.
The Derma Roller System is a revolutionary skin care product that uses 200 extremely fine medical grade needles which triggers your bodies natural healing process which cause your skin to create collagen and elastin which helps thicken your skin and smoothes away fine lines, wrinkles, scars and hyperpigmentation.

The concept can be likened to wound and heal. It is a fact that after age 40 skin only rejuvenates itself about every 53 days. Products like this were only used in the doctors office in the past. We now know that that is not needed in order to achieve great results. You can find out more about how it works here 
It doesn't hurt during the treatment although afterwards my skin was a little beyond tingling.  I'm going to use it again but I'm waiting a couple of weeks.

LashiQ Natural Eyelash Growth Serum Review


I can see that LashiQ is nourishing my eyelashes. They haven't been falling out as much as they normally do although that's not exactly what it's for but it sure does help. I can't say that there has been tremendous growth but I can tell that my lashes are healthier since I've been using this.

 I have been using this for about 2-3 weeks and around 4 to 5 times per week. I haven't had any incredible results and I realize that it's best used every day.  It's very easy to apply. Apply once before bed to clean lashes.  Honestly I wish I could remember to use it every single day  I'm going to continue using it and I'm hoping that I'll have some more to report.  I have not had irritation or problems from this product.
The ingredients are:  Biotin, Myristoyl Pentapeptide-17, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7, Retinyl Palmitate, Pumpkin Seed.  It is  MADE IN THE USA
#Naturaleyelash
You can purchase it on Amazon.
