Product Review + Giveaway: Dial’s “New” Sugar Cane Husk Scrub Hand Soap.

I am a Purex Inside blogger. As part of this program get to try new products. Recently had the chance to try a new product from Dial. Dial has this new Boutique Collection, and one their products is the Sugar Cane Husk Scrub hand soap. Luckily I had the change to experience this product & host a giveaway.


We all wash our hands multiple times per day. Washing your hands frequently has many positive health benefits such as preventing colds & flu. Still all of this hand washing can lead to dry, cracked hands. First thing I noticed about this hand soap has tiny flecks in them. Those tiny flecks are the sugar cane husks. Another thing I noticed is the nice scent. The scent is almost like a almond cookie. Lightly sweet & very pleasant.


Like using this hand soap. Dial’s Sugar cane hand soap is highly effective at cleaning your hands. I find that the scrubbing agent in this hand soap is the perfect size & amount. Often products with scrubbing agents are to harsh, but not this product. I do wash my hands several times, and often my hands get very dry. This hand soap effectively cleans my hands, but doesn’t dry them out. My hands get nice & clean + hydrated.

After using this product I am big fan of Dial’s Boutique Collection. Currently I have only experienced the Sugar Cane hand soap. This collection has other scents & they are yellow raspberry, water blossom, & coconut lime verbena. Plan to purchase the yellow raspberry next it sounds amazing. Have to say I am no a fan of Dial hand soaps.

Want to thank Purex Insiders for allowing me to try this product & host a giveaway. This product was sent to me complimentary in exchange for an honest review. Thanks for reading this blog post. Stay blessed & good luck my friends.

Dot & Dot 15 inch Packing Organizer: Product Review

Disclosure: I was sent this product complimentary in exchange for an honest & fair product review.

One of my great loves is traveling. Traveling can either be a joy or a burden. Being organized makes my traveling experience a joy. Thanks to Dot & Dot travel it makes the packing part of travel a breeze.


What is Dot & Dot 15 inch Packing organizer? Each packing folder can hold up to 7 shirts or pants. Using this packing organizer helps to minimize wrinkles, but also maximize space. As we all know the airlines keep limiting the size & weight of our suitcases. Like that this product also gives the user more privacy. Each packing organizer also comes with a folding board with instructions printed on the board.


Honestly I love the idea of this packing organizer. I am one of those people that over packs. A product such as this will help to keep me more organized & tidy. Normally I travel for leisure, but being on a vacation is no reason to look sloppy. This packing organizer keeps my clothes wrinkle free & that saves me from ironing my clothes.

In the photo above you can see how neatly folded clothes remain. What I like is that this product can really free up space in my suitcase. Another great aspect of this product is that it keeps your clothes protected from shoes, dust etc. The product is easy to use, and care for. Spill anything on just wipe it clean. Now for my travel needs I would need 2 or 3 packing organizers. Dot & Dot 15 inch pack organizer is so easy to use. Regardless of how much you travel this is a useful product. Why did I not think of inventing a product like this?

I love using Dot & Dot 15″ packing organizer. Will purchase the 18 inch size also. Even if you don’t travel much this product can free up space in your dressers & closets. Would highly recommend this product to any business traveler. Please find links to buy the product on amazon & visit their homepage.

Product Review: Nutraplex’s Pineapple Coconut Bar….

*** Disclosure: I was sent this product complimentary in exchange for an honest & fair product review.

Happy Monday friends. Hope all of you are enjoying your Spring. Sadly it’s been rainy for me, but enough of the weather. Yes I am here to do a product review for you on a product from Nutraplex.


Today want to share with you my thoughts on Nutraplex’s Pineapple Coconut Bar. Firstly I do love these sorts of products. Like these types of bars to have a healthy alternative. I am big Pineapple & coconut person so this product was perfect for myself.

Nutraplex® Pineapple Coconut Bar is the trip to paradise you have been waiting for. Explore the sweetness of juicy pineapple adjoined with the silky smoothness of coconut. Your taste buds will be fooled into thinking you just woke up on an exotic island. Naturally sweetened with honey, this chewy blend of almonds cashews and chia seeds is packed with protein.

• Delicious
• Natural Energy
• Gluten Free
• Non-GMO
• Vegetarian
• Kosher
• Omega 3s
• Antioxidants
• Fiber
• Soy Free
• Dairy Free
• Natural Preservatives
• Balanced Micronutrients

Maybe you want to know just what is it? These are nutrition bars from Nutraplex. Often nutrition bars, don’t taste good, but these bars taste terrific. Just what’s in it? The Pineapple coconut bar has ingredients such as cashews, dates, pineapple & honey. Nutraplex bars are special as they have Chia seeds & pea protein. Chia seeds are packed with nutrients & antioxidents, but have very few calories. They also help the bars to have nice chewy texture. Yes I am big into chia seeds. What is good about pea protein? Firstly it digest easily, rich in protein & is lactose free.


In the photo above you can see my photo of my Nutraplex bar. The fact that it’s good for you is awesome, but just as important is the taste? Personally I love it! It lightly sweet, and chewy. Nutraplex got the texture right. This bar is not to moist nor is it to dry. This is the kind product I would enjoy eating. Nutraplex’s Pineapple Coconut bar is a great on the go snack. If a product doesn’t taste good….I won’t eat it. While I have only tasted this bar it’s delicious. Would love to try the rest of the product line.

Currently Nutraplex has flavors such as Megaberry, Pomegranate cherry, Mango strawberry & of course Pineapple coconut bar. Best place to buy their products is at or you can find them on amazon too. Below please find links to their homepage, like their facebook page.

Product Review: NorthCoast Products 100% Pure Argan Oil.

Disclosure: I was sent this product complimentary in exchange for an honest & fair review.

One very popular product in the beauty world is Argan oil. Go into any store or online, and your sure to find Argan oil for sale. Luckily I had the chance to try North Coast Products 100% Pure Argan Oil.


North Coast Products Argan Oil comes in a generous 4 fl. oz. bottle. The bottle is dark brown, and the label is black with a pump top. With any Argan oil product less is more. Like that this product is fragrance-free. It also has no preservatives, and not tested on animals.

So where can you use Argan oil? It can be used on your face, skin, hair & nails. It’s important to know that North Coast Products Argan oil is also organic. This product is also safe to use in sensitive areas such as the under & eyelid areas. I use argan oil from my head to my toes. Found this product to be very helpful in taming my frizzy curls.

Not all argan oil are created equal. What should you look for when buying argan oil? Only ingredient listed should be argan oil or “argania spinosa.” It should also be listed as imported from Morocco. Just as important are the, “USDA Organic” & “Eco Cert” logos. While this product is fragrance free it has a natural nutty scent to it. This will disappear soon after applying it. Argan oil should also have a slight golden hue to it. Guess what? North Coast Products 100% Pure Argan oil meets all of the criteria for a top quality argan oil.


Normally I use about 5 tiny drops to cover my entire face & neck. Put few drops of your argan oil into your hands, and rub them together. Gently pat the oil onto your face, and take your time. No matter where you apply argan oil it will absorb quickly. I have included links to buy the product on amazon & visit North Coast Products homepage.

** Buy North Coast Products 100% Pure Argan Oil on amazon:
** Visit their homepage:
I consider myself an Argan oil aficionado. This oil is a very high quality product. After a few weeks of use you will notice both fine & coarse lines will soften. Would suggest using Argan oil twice a day. Being consistent with using any beauty product is very important. I would suggest keeping your argan oil in a cool dry place.

Have used this oil for a month now, and have barely used any of the product. This bottle should last at least six months. Once again thank you for stopping by, and reading my blog. Stay blessed, and enjoy your spring.

Product Review: goPURE Natural’s Fractionated Coconut Carrier Oil

Disclosure: I did receive this product complimentary in exchange for an honest review.

I am not new to the carrier oil & essential oil world. Yes have used other carrier oils before but not from goPure Naturals. Over the past month have been using their 100% Pure Fractionated Coconut Oil. Maybe your confused about the term,”Fractionated Coconut Oil.” Basically Fractionated Coconut Oil stays in a liquid form & not a solid as the fats are removed from it. Removing the fat allows the oil to stay in a liquid form.


Why use goPure Natural’s 100% Pure Fractionated Coconut Oil? The name says it all. It’s natural. This product has no additives, preservatives, nor does it have fillers. This oil absorbs quickly into the skin. All you need to do is put a drop in your hands, and apply. As this product is natural your body knows how to process it. Like that it does not look greasy or slick on your skin. I can apply some to my dry hands, and the next minute.. I can snap snap my fingers.


Personally I like to use products that can multi-task. This oil can be used in many ways. Of course you can use it as a massage oil. Below I will share a few ideas for using, “FCO”. Still use your imagination & find other uses. Honestly you are only limited by your imagination.

Sweet Citrus Sugar Scrub:
* 1 cup Sanding Sugar (granulated can be used, but sanding sugar is best)
* 1 cup Fractionated Coconut Oil “FCO”
* 24 drops of Lemon Essential Oil
Yes the above sounds like large amount, but use it on your body, hands, and it makes a great gift. Let me warn you your friends will ask you to make more for them. Of course use your favorite essential oil, but I love lemon…

Close Shave Oil:
* 1/2 cup Fractionated Coconut Oil “FCO”
* 8 drops of Chamomile essential oil
Take any empty bottle glass or plastic, and first add in your “FCO” next add in your chamomile essential oil. Now there are both German & Roman chamomile essential oils, and both work fine. I personally like the German variety best. Yes you can use another essential oil, but find that Chamomile is so calming & relaxing.

The above are just two ways to use goPure 100% Pure “FCO”. I have also used just straight, “FCO” as a hair moisturizer. Use it as you would baby oil. What I like about goPure’s “FCO” is it has no smell. Many “FCO” oils on the market have a burnt like smell, but goPure’s does not. This oil will last you a long time, but recommend keeping it in cool, dry place. I have enjoyed using their product, and it’s a great value. Below find links to buy it on amazon, & go like their Facebook page please.

Hope that you can give this multi use product a try. Feel free to comment below with any ways in which you use, “FCO”. Thanks so much for stopping by, and reading my blog. Hope your enjoying your spring, and stay blessed.

Review: +LifeGuard Mini 1 Portable Charger.

Disclosure: I was sent this product complimentary in exchange for an honest review. The thoughts in this blog are my own.

Happy Sunday everyone. The sun is shining, and I am in great mood today. Wanted to do a product review for +LifeGuard Mini 1 Portable Charger.

So what is it? It’s basically a source of power for smartphones, cameras, mp3 players & gaming devices. This is about the size of your hand. It’s about 3.8 inches long & maybe 1 inch wide. As for the weight think it’s about 2.5 ounces if that. I got the black charger. It has 3000mAh & it’s a lithium ion battery. In your package you will get the charger, a usb micro cable & lighting cable(for apple devices).

I would suggest charging your +Lifeguard mini 1 overnight. This charger is compatible with Iphones, Ipods, Samsung, and most mobile phones. The +Lifeguard Mini 1 portable charger is on the basic side. It has no fancy digital display or bells & whistles. I like the simplicity of this portable charger. The more functions your charger has the bigger & heavier it will be.


+LifeGuard Mini 1 is so easy to use. Of course first charge it up, and once fully charged start using it. Next simply connect your phone to the portable charger. In the photo above you can see my smartphone. At first my phone was dead, and it took about 3 hours for my phone to fully charge. What I like is how easy it is to use. When you first charge up your +LifeGuard Mini 1 it may become warm, but this is to be expected. While it’s charging the light will stay red, and when fully charged the light switches off.

I have use this product for almost a month now. Personally I give +LifeGuard Mini 1 a 5 star review. It’s simple for anyone to use, and can be used for just about any smartphone, camera, mp3 player or gaming device. Yes this portable charger is more on the simple side, but it’s fairly priced. Currently you can buy one on amazon for about $ 21.97. At that price would suggest buying several. Keep one in your car, bag & your desk. Give one to your kids so they have no excuse not to call you. Below please find the link to buy on amazon.

Once again thank you for stopping buy, and hope you have a blessed Sunday.

InstaNatural Lemon & Peppermint Essential Oil’s Product Reviews

Disclosure: I received complimentary products in exchange for a fair & honest review. The thoughts in this blog are my own.

Think that many of my readers know I am into using essential oil’s. Have used essential oils for several years. Recently I had the good luck to try InstaNatural’s Lemon & Peppermint Essentail Oil’s. Have only used these to products for about a week so far. Yes I am a fan of InstaNatural, and one word that I associate with this company is, “QUALITY”.


These two essential oils each come in a big 4 fl. oz. bottles. InstaNatural’s Lemon & Peppermint essential oil are for external use only.

InstaNatural’s Lemon Essential Oil:
Ingredients: 100% pure Cold-Pressed Lemon Essential Oil (Citrus Limon) I believe the process is taking the rinds of lemon’s and pressing them & thus extracting the natural oils.
Fragrance: The scent is sweet & refreshing. It reminds me of Southern Italy! This is one of the best Lemon Essential Oils I have used.

Lemon essential oil is known to have antifungal, antiseptic, antidepressant & astringent properties. I find that the scent of this oil is also uplifting. The possibilities are endless for this oil.
Ideas for uses of Lemon Essential Oil:
1. Natural Disinfectant: I try not to use bleach to disinfect my countertops & surface areas. I use a plastic spray bottle that’s 16 oz size & add about 30 drops of your Lemon essential oil & 1 oz of white vinegar & the fill with water. I also use this spray to clean the shower & my shower curtains.
2. Immune Support: Mix equal amount of Lemon essential oil & coconut oil then apply to your neck & chest. This will help you fight any cold you may have.
3. Mood Enhancer: Feeling down or grumpy? Simply add some of your Lemon essential oil to your diffuser, and allow it to fill your room. This scent will take you out of any bad mood.
4. Face Wash: Lemon oil is very nourishing to the skin. Simply mix the lemon oil with baking soda & some honey for a natural face wash. This wash is great for anyone dealing with breakouts or dull looking skin.

InstaNatural’s Peppermint Essential Oil:

Ingredients: 100% pure steam distilled from Peppermint leaves. This oil is the real deal & nothing is added to it. Open the bottle & you know it’s Peppermint!

Think many if not most essential oil users have peppermint in their collection. Reason being it’s so versatile. This essential oil is strong, and most likely you should dilute it with a carrier oil such as sweet almond. Find that the scent is cool, & refreshing scent. Many of us just think of peppermint as something to freshen the breath. While that is a good thing it has so many more uses & benefits. This oil can help with nausea, and it also has antifungal properties. Below are few ideas for the use of this multitasking essential oil.
1. Headache Helper: Take about 2 drops of the carrier oil of your choice & one drop of Peppermint essential oil rub together in your palms. Next apply the mixture to your temples, forehead, & back of the neck. Gentle massage into the area. When I have bad chest congestion I use this recipe also, but chest apply to the chest.
2. Achy Feet: I use a damp towl & apply few drops of my Peppermint essential oil to it & rest your feet on the towel, and they will feel much better.
3. Odor Control: If you have any smelly trash cans simply apply the oil to the inside of your cans. This will help them to smell better, and it keep cat’s, rat’s & mice away.
4. Constipation: Use about a quarter sized amount of coconut oil & one drip of peppermint oil. Massage the mixture onto your stomach in slow circular motion.

Listen I am not natural health guru, but I know what works for my life. The ideas listed above work for me, and meet my needs. Now you may need to adjust the amount of oils uses to suit your needs. With anything use your common sense. If you think you could be allergic do a patch test on your skin. Below please find links to buy the products on amazon, & link to their homepage.

Product Review: 100% Pure Whey Protein Isolate – 3 single serve PK from Summit Nutrition.

DISCLAIMER: These products were sent to me complimentary in exchange for an honest & fair review.


I am a regular user of protein powders. Have used many in the past, and do enjoy trying new products. Luckily had the chance to try Summit Nutrition’s 100% Pure Whey Protein Isolate in the Dutch chocolate flavor. Was sent 3 single serving packets. Below will share with you what Summit Nutrition says about the product.
*** -100% BIO PURE WHEY PROTEIN ISOLATE – Summit Nutritions whey protein is isolated from Whey Protein concentrate by using patented ultra-microfiltration process which preserves Natural Profile of Amino Acid unlike other whey protein isolates that denature the Protein profile by using Ion Exchange method or others. Our PROTEIN is FREE FROM PROTEIN SPIKING OR AMINO ACID SPIKING and it gives you 90% Protein per Scoop (25/27.7g)
– HIGHEST BIOPURITY PROFILE – Summit Nutrition’s Whey Protein Isolate gives 90% of protein per scoop (25/27.7g) and maximum amount (5.6 GM) of BCCAs and (4.8 GM) of Glutamines per serving size and it’s ALL COMING FROM THE PROTEIN NOT EXTERNALLY ADDED. Also our protein has all 26 Full Spectrum Amino Acid Profiles including essential, semi essential and non-essential Amino Acids with 159 Biological Value and Perfect 1.0 PDCAAs Score.
– ZERO FAT, VERY LOW CARB AND CHOLESTEROL – Summit Nutritions Whey Protein isolate has zero fat and very less, in fact less than 1% Daily Value of Cholesterol and Carbohydrate which is much better than other proteins. In addition to this, there is ZERO FILLERS OR EXCEPIENTS.
– NON-GMO, LACTOSE FREE, SOY FREE & NATURALLY FLAVORED INSTANIZED – Summit Nutritions Whey Protein Isolate is free of Lactose, Soy Gluten, BSE/TSE, NON-GMO and naturally flavored with Stevia. The protein is gently spray dried and lecithinated into granular free flowing powder which readily dispersible in water.

Wow that is lot’s of information & it could be confusing. Why choose a Whey protein isolate product? In short it has the highest amount of protein. Whey protein isolate can better absorb into your muscles. So is there a down side? Honestly yes. Whey protein isolates cost more, but you get what you pay for. Whey protein isolate has many benefits which are:
* Repairs Body Cells
* Builds & Repairs Muscles
* A source of energy

The above makes Summit Nutrition 100% Pure Whey Protein Isolate sound pretty good, but how do you use it? I use 8 0z of unsweetened Almond milk, a handful of ice cubes, and 1 serving of the protein powder & blend it up. If you want a shake like texture reduce the almond milk to 6 ounces. No blender? No problem get an inexpensive shaker, and shake for about 30 seconds.

So how does the product taste? Honestly I like the taste. In my view it has the correct level of sweetness. This product does not have an aftertaste nor does it have a chemical like taste. If you mix it with almond milk it does taste like a milk shake, but one that’s beneficial for your body. Below will share few of my recipes.

**** Terry’s Chocolate & Banana Passion. First you will need a blender for this one. Cut up one banana & freeze it until fully frozen. Use 8 oz’s of unsweetened Almond milk, the frozen bana & blend for 30 seconds. Next add in your Summit Nutrition Whey Protein Isolate & blend an additional 30 seconds. This has a much thicker consistency.
**** Mocha Madness: Use unsweetened black coffee that has been frozen in an ice tray. Use about 5 of the coffee ice cubes. Once again use 8 oz of unsweetened Almond milk, & your Dutch chocolate flavored whey protein isolate powder, and blend for 30 seconds. This is drink is just as good as any drink from your favorite coffee shop.

I have loved using this product. So far I have only tried Summit Nutriton’s 100% Whey Protein Isolate in the Dutch chocolate flavor, and I enjoyed it. If a product does not taste good… well I won’t use it. This product is lactose, gluten & soy free. It has no banned substances or hidden ingredients. If you want to get into using protein powders try this one from Summit Nutrition. Please find links below to purchase the product on amazon.

Once again want to thank you for reading this blog. Would like to thank both Summit Nutrition & Tomoson for allowing me to try this product. Have a blessed week, and stay warm.
