Product Review: NEW Ancient Orient Rice Enzyme Dermafoliant by Oz Natural

While it's true that our skin gets rid of dead skin cells naturally, most of the time they don't fall off right away. We still need to slough them off for skin care products to get absorbed and do its wonders. That is why I make it a point to exfoliate once in a while. And yes, that is what this post is all about. I was recently given the opportunity to review the NEW Ancient Orient Rice Enzyme Dermafoliant by Oz Natural.





About the Product

* OZ Naturals FACE SCRUB EXFOLIANT utilizes bamboo to gently exfoliate skin and unclog pores without irritation, drying or stripping.
* FINALLY A FACIAL SCRUB THAT contains lactic acid and alpha lipoic acid to further help the exfoliation process by breaking down and removing dead skin cells, revealing the glow of healthy skin beneath, and assists in reducing fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of premature aging from sun damage.
* ANOTHER KEY INGREDIENT, green tea extract, is rich in antioxidants and helps to prevent collagen breakdown as well as tone and protect the skin from the damaging effect of free radicals.
* THE PRO-VITAMIN B5 IN OUR scrub is readily absorbed by the skin and penetrates deep down, retaining moisture and relieving dry, irritated skin, and Alpha Lipoic Acid provides anti-inflammatory effects reducing redness and blotchiness, shrinking pore size and imparting a healthy radiance to the skin
* SAFE FOR ALL SKIN TYPES, our bamboo exfoliant is all natural and free of harmful ingredients.

My Thoughts

The exfoliant is very gritty and you will definitely feel the exfoliation. I have to warn you to be very, very gentle when rubbing this on your face.



I love the results, though, because as soon as I washed it off, my face felt very soft and smooth. The blackheads on my T zone (the nose especially) are gone. Aside from that, my skin felt very clean and refreshed.

This should be done 2 to 3 times a week to get the best results and I would do just that especially that I love what it did to my skin.

Overall, this is a great exfoliant. It cleanses and rids skin of dead skin cells and leaves it silky smooth. If you are looking for a product to help slough off dead skin cells, grits and grime, this is a great product to try.

Where to buy?

You can purchase the Ancient Orient Rice Enzyme Dermafoliant through the Oz Natural website and on Amazon.

Product Review: Premium Quality Engraved Set of 5 Measuring Spoons

Baking is one of our favorite things to do, especially when the kids are on vacation. The kids love helping out, especially when I give them the go to measure the ingredients, make the batter and scoop and place them onto the baking sheet.

I recently received a set of pretty measuring spoons for evaluation purposes.





Product Description

- NO More Scratches, Spots, Hurting Sharp Edges
- NO More Rubber Inserts Or Magnets To Fall Off the Holes
- NO More Washing Off the Ink Measurement Markings
- NO More Breaking Of Spoons Like Plastic, Ceramic, Wood or Glass Ones
- NO More Bad Taste Or Strange Smells

My Thoughts

I love that the spoons come in different colors because it makes you easily remember what to use. The spoons are made of stainless steel and unlike other measuring spoons that I have used, the measurements (metric and non metric) are engraved on each spoon. The handles are made of silicone, making them easier to grip.

A metal ring that easily opens and closes holds all the spoons. You can easily take out one spoon that you often use or just keep them all together. Storage is easy as well because you can just simply hang them using the ring or store in your cabinet.

Where to buy?

The Premium Quality Engraved Set of 5 Measuring Spoons can be purchased through Amazon. It is fairly priced at $9.99.

Three Things To Look For In A Uniform Company

These days, business owners and individuals are constantly looking for great uniforms that will optimize their appearance and increase the professionalism of their companies. If you're currently looking for the ideal company from which to purchase your uniforms, it's important to note that the best businesses will typically possess the following three attributes:

1. Experience In The Uniform Industry.

Whether you're looking for polo shirt uniforms, kitchen uniforms, or some other type, you want to work with a company that has extensive experience in the industry. Doing so is important for many reasons, including the fact that experienced business owners typically possess the extensive knowledge and "know-how" necessary to help you attain the perfect uniform quickly. When you start looking for the ideal uniform company, keep Averill's Sharper Uniforms in mind. This company has been in operation for over a decade and places great primacy on ensuring the customer's 100% satisfaction.

2. A Great Reputation.

Another factor you should look for in a uniform company is a great reputation. Reputation is important because it functions as a form of proof that the company is known for providing customers with the high quality uniforms and personalized services they need and deserve. To determine whether a uniform company has a great reputation, go online and see whether it has obtained a favorable rating from the Better Business Bureau (BBB). You can also take time to read online reviews left about the uniform company.

3. Reasonable Rates.

If you're like most people, you're on a budget and don't want to "break the bank" to get the great uniform you want. With this idea in mind, be sure that you're looking for a uniform company that offers reasonable rates. To get an idea of what the going rates are, you'll need to shop around and do a comparison/contrast before making your final decision. By taking this route, you'll be able to get the most cost-effective prices on the block.

Conclusion

If you're interested in getting an aesthetically appealing, durable uniform for work, remember that finding a reputable retailer from which to make the purchase is important. To ensure that you find a uniform company that will offer you the excellent products and customized care you deserve, make sure that the retailer possesses all of the attributes listed here. Good luck!

Tips for Buying Boys' Clothes

Children grow so fast and whether they are getting ready for summer, going back to school or getting ready for the cold months, they will usually need new clothes having outgrown the ones you bought a few months ago. For me, it's easier to shop for girls' clothes than boys'. Aside from the fact that almost all children's stores offer a wide variety of styles and designs for girls, they are more patient when it comes to shopping and trying on clothes.

Most boys don't really care about their clothes. So long as they have something to wear and they are comfortable, they're okay. If you are shopping for them and you have them in tow, that could be a real challenge. Boys don't have the patience to visit several stores, so you better have those measurements and sizes ready. That way, you won't have to spend a long time in the store. Also make sure that you have a list of what you need, so you can easily check the items as you shop.





While it's a good idea to buy clothes that are a size bigger, don't risk it with seasonal items. Like for example, you want to buy a pair of boots for winter because it is on sale; you have to keep in mind that boys grow at unpredictable rates and there is a great chance those boots won't fit come winter time.

Nowadays, many people are preferring to shop online because of convenience. Aside from saving their sanity from having to deal with impatient boys, there are no traffic and parking problems to think about. ZALORA is my go to shop when it comes to clothing. They offer a wide range of clothing for children that are stylish and affordable. You can check out their collection here.

My Thoughts

The shampoo has an earthy and fresh scent. It's hard to describe, but I really like it. The conditioner also smells great. It's lavender and vanilla - you'll fall in love with the scent.

The husband has thinning hair, so I made him use the shampoo. It's only been a few days and albeit no new hair has grown (yet), he says he can feel that his hair is stronger and there is less hair fall. His hair also looks healthier. He also loves the earthy/fresh scent.

I was the one who tried the conditioner. Aside from the lovely scent, I love how it deeply moisturizes. My hair stayed soft and smooth all day. I've got thick and wavy hair, but the conditioner tamed the curls.

Radha Beauty's Clearing Serum {Review}


Ever since I started reviewing products more than a year ago, I often have the opportunity to test and review beauty products complimentary in exchange for my honest opinion of the product. Today's beauty product is the Clearing Serum by Radha Beauty. I am not new to this brand and to tell you honestly, I love their products.





Product Description

The Radha Beauty Professional Age-Defying Skin Clearing Serum will help reverse the signs of aging while improving blemished skin and hyperpigmentation. In this powerful serum sulfur penetrates and creates elasticity while Niacinamide takes the red out and prevents inflammation that underlies all troubled skin issues. 20% Vitamin C repairs micro scarring, reverses sun damage, provides significant natural sun protection and rapidly creates smooth supple glowing skin. Stealthy superior retinol and salicylic acid unclog pores, heal acne, speed cellular turnover, and undo the signs of aging skin.

My Thoughts

The serum has a very strong herbal scent that is similar to tea tree oil. There is also a light floral smell that mixes with the herbal scent. The scent is rather strong, but it is not offensive. I kind of like the smell actually.

The serum has a nice consistency and it is not sticky. It is absorbed quickly and it dries fast. It is gentle on the skin, it is not drying and I did not break out. Although my skin is not really sensitive, there are a few products that I've tried that had me breaking out. This one didn't. In fact, I love how it keeps my skin moisturized and supple.

It's only been a few days and I'm already in love with this product. I can't believe that my enlarged pores appear smaller! The fine lines around my eyes have softened as well. I am so sure this serum will continue to amaze me in the weeks to come.

Overall, this is one great beauty product and it definitely deserves a spot in my skincare regimen. If you are wanting to combat the early signs of aging and bring back the glow of your skin, this serum by Radha is worth giving a try.

Where to buy?

You can purchase the Clearing Serum through the Radha Beauty website and on Amazon. It is fairly priced at $22.89.

Wearing Black and White?

Stick with solids because it whittles the middle. Blouses with busy textures like lace can blur the outline of the waist, causing the middle to look thick. 



Whereas a solid white top creates the illusion of a more defined silhouette, which highlights the dip in at the waist, so it looks thinner.

Wearever Leak-Control Underwear for Men and Women of All Ages Review + Giveaway

Yay! Today I am reviewing another great product from Wearever, the Women's Super Incontinence Panties.




Product Description:

Wearever Women’s Super Incontinence Panties offer twice as much protection as our already reliable panties. With the same comfort, style and reusability the Wearever brand has always delivered, reusable incontinence underwear are both an economical and reliable alternative to disposable incontinence products. Our Super Incontinence Panties offer more protection than our regular Women’s Cotton Comfort Incontinence Panties and are soft, silky cotton/poly jersey with an Agion™ antimicrobial fiber, which reduces odor-causing bacteria. This pair of incontinence panties has a waterproof outer layer, which prevents leakage and provides you with double the protection. Wearever’s Unique-Dri™ super absorbent, sewn-in pad, traps liquid and provides all-day protection. Our incontinence panties require no extra inserts or disposable pads and offer twice as much absorption as our Wearever Panty L-1. These Super Incontinence Panties are machine washable and last up to 250 washes! Patent: #8123,735 B2

My Thoughts

Just like their other products that I have tried, this one didn't disappoint. The material used is very soft and light. The thickness is also perfect and I love the comfort of wearing these panties. It's just like wearing regular panties, but without feeling the moisture. I suffer from very light incontinence and although panty shields work for me, wearing incontinence panties is a lot more comfortable.

If you are looking for a good underwear to protect you from surprise leaks, I would recommend giving Wearever products a try. They offer a lot designs for both men and women.

Refresh Eye Recovery Serum {Review} #refresheyeserum

There is no doubt that cucumber and potato juice both work to eliminate dark circles and puffy eyes, but a good eye serum is not as messy. I was recently given the opportunity to review the Eye Recovery Serum by [Re]Fresh. I am not new to this brand and I love their products, that is why I was so excited to try the eye serum.



Product Description

This is our newest product - due to launch March 9th! However, we want to reach out to bloggers and see how you like the product and can introduce it to your readers. Sorry, the product photo is still being worked on, so this not the final image, by any means.

Refresh's Peptide+ Intense Eye Recovery serum is a dynamic and effective dark circle elimination treatment. Using an active ingredient mix of purified soy, rice and yeast peptides, the formula positively stimulates blood circulation away from the eyes to dramatically reduce dark circles and puffiness.

Benefits

• Reduces dark circles and puffiness around the eyes
• Restores important moisture levels
• Soothes and softens the skin
• Is safe and gentle to use around the eyes






My Thoughts

I'm glad that I'm one of the first to have tried the serum as it was only launched recently. As a blogger, I work late nights. I need to finish the chores and see that my family's needs are met before I can start writing articles and doing reviews. Dark circles and puffy eyes are my constant companions!

The serum is unscented and it has a nice consistency. It is easy to apply and a little goes a long way. It soothes and relaxes tired eyes instantly and it didn't sting. The serum is easily absorbed and I love that it kept my eyes moisturized for hours. My skin feels soft and smooth to the touch.

I've been using the eye recovery serum for more than a week now and to everybody's surprise, my dark circles are lighter and the eye bags are smaller. The first persons to notice are my husband and daughter. I'm still watching the fine lines, but with what the serum does to my skin, I'm sure it will continue to amaze me in the weeks to come.

Recommendation

If you are looking for a product to combat puffy eyes, dark circles, crow's feet and fine lines and wrinkles, the serum is worth giving a try. It contains purified soy, rice and yeast peptides; ingredients that are known to significantly improve eye bags and erase dark circles.

Where to buy?

I may not be too young, but like my kids, I'm crazy about Harry Potter. I've read all the books and seen every movie. And I was very excited when I found out that I was one of the lucky bloggers approved to test and review the Harry Potter Time Turner Twin Necklace Set Gold.




Product Description

Both necklaces are cool! They may just be gold plated, but you can tell that they were done with care. I just hope they will not fade over time. The chains and the charms are cute and they look sturdy. They are of high quality and I'm sure they will last a long time.






My kids were thrilled that they spin! Of course, both necklaces will go to the daughter who's crazy over Harry, Hermione and Ron.

Overall, we loved the twin necklace set. If you are looking for a unique gift, these necklaces are perfect.
