Product Review: Lux Essentials French Press

Lux Essentials French Press

I've been wanting to try out a French Press for years but assumed it would be a hassle to use. When I had the opportunity to review one I jumped at the chance to finally see what it is like to use. Well, it turns out that it is incredibly easy to use AND to clean. To use you basically just add your coffee, your hot water, and press! There are two major things that convinced me to convert to using a French press. The first is that it is easy to clean. There aren't a ton of parts that you need to break down to clean, just some simple water and dish soap to get it clean. No more difficult than cleaning a glass. The second thing is that it saves me so much counter space. I can store this out of my way in the cabinet which is important since I live in a small apartment with almost no counter space. I'm so glad I finally tried using a French press. It's now my preferred method for making coffee.

Product Review: Tazo Chai

I was recently sent some samples of Tazo Chai to try.  Now, I'm a chai snob so I expected not to like the tea bags. I was so wrong! The chocolate chai especially blew me away. The chocolate flavor was faint so that it did not overpower the tea and spices. perfection! The original and caramel flavors were good but paled in comparison to the chocolate. I also bought the chai concentrate and prepared it both hot and cold. It was pretty good, but was lacking a richness that I prefer in chai. I liked the chai concentrate better cold. If you have never had chai before I highly recommend it. Even my boyfriend who doesn't really like hot tea tried it and ended up loving it.

Product Review: Magnus Heavy Duty Double Edge Safety Razor

 Heavy Duty Double Edge Safety Razor
This is my first safety razor so I can't compare it to the quality of others, but this razor is definitely an improvement from disposable razors. I really like the weightiness of the razor. Overall it is a good product that works the way it is supposed to. I received this product in exchange for an honest review.

Product Review: UNi 100% Organic Moroccan Argan Oil

UNi 100% Organic Moroccan Argan Oil 2oz
I've been hearing about how awesome argan oil is for awhile now so I figured I should give it a try. I'm certainly glad I did. My skin is always so dry, especially my face, legs, and feet. The first time I used the oil was on my face. My skin felt so tight and dry and then I applied a little Argan Oil. Immediately I felt relief. My skin felt so moisturized and soft.  I was a little concerned the oil would cause a breakout, but surprisingly it didn't. Just a heads up, a little goes a long way. The one thing I don't like about the oil is the smell. Others have said it has a nutty smell, but to me it smelled very faintly of dirty diapers. Thankfully, the smell disappeared pretty quickly and it was a very very faint smell. In the future I will use the argan oil in some homemade beauty products.

Product Review: OG Instant Read Thermometer

OG Instant Read Thermometer

This meat thermometer was accurate when I used it which is the most important thing. It also came with a temperature guide printed on the package which I found handy so I cut it out to keep. I also like the holder for the thermometer so it is protected and stays clean in storage. The only reason I don't rate this as 5 stars is because to me this isn't instant read. It took a long time to get to the final temperature. I have a non digital thermometer that takes the same amount of time as this digital instant read thermometer. Overall I'm pretty happy with it though.

Product Review: Oleavine Neem Oil

Oleavine Neem Oil
I was hesitant about using this product at first because people warned about its strong smell. When I opened the bottle I got hit with a potent earthy kind of smell. It wasn't necessarily bad and it didn't really bother me. Neem oil has so many uses and so far I have only tried it a couple ways. First I used it to make an eczema cream since the eczema on my hand was acting up. I used the neem oil, coconut oil, and ground turmeric. It really did help the inflammation. I will definitely keep using the neem oil for this. I also used it as a pest repellant. We keep getting these weird little bugs in one room so I wiped the oil in the area I keep finding the bugs. So far I have yet to see them again. I can't say for sure it was because of the neem oil, but I will probably use it again for this purpose to see if it works again. Next up I plan to use the neem oil in my hair.

Product Review: Bronson Naturals Beard Oil

Bronson Naturals Beard Oil

If there is anything my boyfriend has taught me it is that having an awesome beard takes maintenance. My boyfriend actually carries a beard comb on him all the time, so I knew he would be interested in trying this beard oil. My personal favorite thing about it is that it is truly unscented. Don't get me wrong, I love scented beard oils, but it is nice to take a break from it. My boyfriend liked that it didn't leave his beard feeling oily and that it made his beard soft. I should also note that he never broke out on his chin during his usage of the product. This product is a triple blend oil. The oils are Argan, Jojoba, and Almond. All great oils with lots of great benefits!
Overall, I think this is a quality product.
