Product Review: Cove Castile Soap

Good morning. Hopefully all of you are having a wonderful Saturday. Been away for a while, but I’m back. Today I shall be reviewing Cove Castile Soap Lavender.

Been using the product for about two weeks now. Cove Castile soap is unique as it’s all natural & Vegan friendly. Another awesome fact is that all of the ingredients are also biodegradable.

Personally I like to think of Castile soap as a multi purpose use product. It’s great for your body, hair, and home use. Very impressed that Cove’s Castile soap is pure & natural. Oh, and by the way the Lavender scent is light, and beautiful.

Maybe my favorite use is as a body wash. To create the body wash use 1/2 cup of your Cove Castile soap & 1/2 distilled water. I also like to add in a little extra Lavender essential oil. Use it like any other body wash. I find my skin feels hydrated, and healthy all day long.

My second favorite use is as a window cleaner. Use 1 tbsp. of castile soap to 4 cups warm water, and clean your windows. I get a streak free window with minimal effort. Below I shall place a link to purchase this wonderful product on amazon.

I regularly use energy/protein/nutrition bars. Reason being is that they are a healthier alternative to candy/junk foods. Had the chance to try an Energy bar from Briskbars.

I am new to Briskbars, and maybe so are you. So what are Briskbars? This product is a plant based energy bar. Oh this product is also vegan friendly bar. Where does the energy come from? Well it’s plant based. Energy comes from plants such as guarana berries, and maca. Briskbars has only 100 calories, 4grams of sugar with 5g of protein.

Yes all of the above facts sounds pretty cool, but how does it taste? I find Briskbars to be delicious. Like that the taste of this bar is very balanced, and it’s not to sweet. Texture of this bar is good also it’s not to hard or too soft. Oh another thing is it won’t get your hands stained or sticky. Like to keep bars such as this in my bag, and in the car as a healthier alternative. At first I was nervous to get jitters from this bar, but did not experience that at all. Actually enjoyed eating it.

I really have enjoyed eating, and experiencing this product. So far Briskbars has one flavor the Dark chocolate & coconut. They are working on more flavors which I’m excited about. Another thing to know is that Briskbars fairly prices their product, and that makes it more affordable to snack healthy. Please visit Briskbars homepage with the link provide below. Shall also include a link to purchase them on amazon.

Product Review: Banish your gray & roots easily with… Cover your gray…..

Many if not most of us change the color of our natural hair or like to cover up pesky gray hairs. Normally having a salon service can be very expensive. Often retouching regrowth/roots or gray hairs can cost just as much as a full head application. I personally don’t have that type of money or time.

gray4

Over the past few days I have been using a terrific product called, “Cover your gray.” Yes this product is terrific for covering up grays, but also good for touching up roots/regrowth. Fell another unique aspect of this product is that it’s waterproof, and last up to three washes. I selected to try the black color.

Like how, “Cover your gray” is very easy to use. Actually you can’t make a mistake using this product. Simply apply short strokes to gray roots at your hairline & parting line. Next you will come through hair, and allow to dry for a few minutes. Within the product range they have different application styles. My favorite is the doe foot applicator. There is also a pencil style, and a mascara style wand. All will give you the same beautiful color it really comes to your own preference.

Now let’s talk about colors, “Cover your gray” comes in black, dark brown, medium brown & blonde. While my hair is not jet black it’s definitely not dark brown. I choose to use the black. True my hair is not jet black, but the color still seamless blends. Using this product I can stretch out visits to the salon, and save lots of money. The color never ran, and was not messy.

Before Cover your gray

Have to say I am loving, “Cover your gray.” It’s easy to use. A little goes a very long way with, “Cover your gray.” The pigments in it are rich, and beautiful. Personally I was able to wash my hair 4 times before the product was washed out of my hair. Think of this product as a way to stretch out salon visits.

Thank you to, “Cover your gray” for allowing me to try their products. Was very impressed with it’s ease of use, and how easily it blends. Want to thank all of my readers for stopping by my blog, and learning about this product. Below you shall find links to learn more.

Product Review: Isa Professional Digital Ceramic Flat Iron….

Disclosure: I received this product complimentary in exchange for an honest, and fair product review.

Happy Friday everyone. Hope you all had a terrific day. Today wanted to share with you a product review for Isa Professional Digital Ceramic Flat Iron.

iron 1

Have the luck to use this flat iron for over a month now, and feel I can tell you my thoughts on it. I have done a product review for Isa Professional before, and was excited to try this flat iron. Let me share with you few points about this flat iron.
* Tourmaline Ceramic Plates
* Neon Background LCD Display
* Digital temperature control 175-450F
* Fast & Safe Straightening, curls or waves
* A 2 year warranty

This flat iron is a good looking & well made. While this iron is durable, and well constructed it’s not to heavy. It’s balanced in your hand. I also like the longer cord that is helpful too. With the backlight digital display you can easily know the temperature of your flat iron.

Speaking of heat and temperature. The Isa Professional Digital Ceramic Flat Iron has a temperature range of 175-450F. Like that this iron can reach it’s max temperature in about 55 seconds. That is very fast. Love that the digital temperature control allows myself to choose the best heat level for myself. Personally I need it around 360.

Plates of your flat iron are very important. These plates are tourmaline ceramic plates. This is important as the plates can maintain and even & consistent heat. While this is a flat iron you can also curl or wave your hair. My hair is very curly, thick, but can straighten my hair with one pass. Doing only one pass is much better for your hair. Oh yes as the plates are well made your hair won’t snag. This flat iron glides through my hair with ease.

Only negative about this flat iron is the placement of the buttons. Wish they were higher up. Kept changing the temperature of the iron whilst using it. That would be the only negative. Overall I have enjoyed using this flat iron. Below you will find a link to buy this flat iron on amazon.

Via Cosmedics Sea Whip Cucummber Detox Soothing Gel: Product Review

Disclosure: I received this product complimentary in exchange for an honest, and fair review.

Over the last few weeks I have been trying a product from Via Cosmedics. The product is their Sea Whip Cucumber Detox Soothing Gel. This product is a gel, but in my mind it’s a mask. Below I shall share some information about the product.

Directions: Cleanse the skin thoroughly, pat dry. Apply evenly to clean, dry face. Allow product to work on the skin for 10-20 minutes. Rinse with cool water. For a more intense treatment, gel may be left on for several hours or overnight. For a cooler treatment, refrigerate gel. May repeat 2-3 times per week or daily for intensive treatment

via1

Benefits of using this gel: • Cucumber provides natural brightening, firming, calming, and de-puffing benefits
• Allantoin contains anti-inflammatory properties to soothe and ease dry, irritated skin
• Oatmeal has anti-inflammatory benefits that calm, soothe, and protect skin aiding in moisture retention and keeping skin firm
• Sea whip is an excellent healing agent, which neutralizes an enzyme responsible for irritation, redness and those with sensitive skin
• Chamomile and comfrey provide synergistic anti-inflammatory and powerful healing properties for dull, inflamed, and irritated skin
• Marigold extract is an excellent anti-irritant, anti-inflammatory, and helps to rejuvenate damaged skin
via2

My thoughts: I find that this product is great for so many skin types. My skin is more combination. Via Cosmedics Sea Whip Cucumber Detox Soothing Gel is terrific for even the most sensitive skin. Find that why my skin gets stressed or dry this gel helps to balance out my skin. Find this gel to be hydrating, and not heavy to the skin. Try to leave it on for at least an hour, but that is just my preference.

via3

Tips: For an extra cooling sensation I keep the jar in my refrigerator. It adds an extra layer of cooling & soothing to the skin. When your skin looks tired or lifeless just apply the gel/mask and in short time your skin will look great.

I do like this product, and it’s something I would buy again. Thanks to all of you for stopping by, and checking out my blog. Have a blessed day.

Product Review: Coffee Crazy French Roast USDA Organic Whole Bean Coffee

Disclaimer: I received complimentary in exchange for an honest, and fair review. The thoughts in this blog are my own.

Each morning I start my day with coffee. Yes I am a coffee lover. Make my coffee in many ways. Often I brew up my coffee in a Keurig machine, but also use a French press. Had the luck to try a French Roast coffee from Coffee Crazy. Received a 12 ounce bag of whole bean coffee.

coffeecrazy1

This coffee is USDA Organic. First thing I noticed when opening the bag of coffee was the smell. Smell of this coffee is heavenly. Often many French roasted coffee’s have a burnt like smell, but not Coffee Crazy’s. The fragrance of this coffee is bold, but not overpowering. The coffee beans are a love shade of brown, and not over roasted like many.
coffeecrazy2

So we know about the appearance & fragrance of the coffee, but how does it taste? Love how smooth this coffee taste. Often many French Roast coffee’s have a burnt or acrid quality to it. Coffee Crazy’s French roast is the bold, rich & has a smooth finish. Normally I add cream, and sugar in my coffee, but with this coffee just add cream. My brothers like their coffee black, and they are loving Coffee Crazy’s French Roast.

coffeecrazy3

When I make coffee try to grind only what I’m going to use at that moment. This is a dark roast coffee. Find that less is more with any dark roast coffee. It’s still going to have a rich taste, but it won’t be overpowering or harsh. I also like to add some freshly grated nutmeg to coffee grounds. Many dark roast coffee’s have a harsh aftertaste, but not this one. Highly suggest this coffee to anyone who claims to dislike a dark roasted coffee.

Below I have posted links to buy the coffee on amazon as well as Coffee Crazy’s homepage.

Product Review: Good Mood Tea from Culinary Teas……

Disclaimer: I received this product complimentary in exchange for an honest, and fair review.

Normally I am a coffee drinker in the morning, and in the evenings I enjoy drinking tea. Love to have nice steaming cup of tea while enjoying my favorite TV shows. Recently I had the chance to review some tea from Culinary Teas. The tea I received was the, “Good Mood Tea.”

tea1

I believe most if not all teas from Culinary Teas are loose tea’s. This tea is delicious, and complex. Actually the tea is beautiful to look at. Base of the tea is a black Sri Lankan origins. Believe that the floral notes come from the calendula & Safflower petals. The star ingredient is the cacao nibs. While this tea has many wonderful ingredients it’s flavor is balanced.

With a tea such as this I suggest using filtered water. Personally I turn off my tea kettle just before it reaches the boiling point. The a place 1 tsp of the loose tea in a tea infuser, and pour the water over. I allow the tea to steep for no more than 5 minutes. This keeps the from having a scorched taste in my opinion.

tea3

Have really enjoyed this tea. It’s very light, refreshing, and delicious. Culinary Teas has a wide selection of teas from white, black, herbal etc. I am planning on purchasing their, “Blood Orange Tea” & “Cranberry Apple Herbal Tea.” Sure will try many of their teas.
