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.

Product Review: Copperside Trading Sound Sleep Anti-Snore Combination

Copperside Trading Sound Sleep Anti-Snore Combination

I have a problem with snoring so I was really hoping this product would help. Unfortunately it did not. The piece that goes in your nose did nothing for me. When I woke up in the morning I couldn't even find it. It does not fit very securely in your nose. For the mouthpiece you are supposed to immerse the piece in very hot water to soften it up. You are then supposed to put it in your mouth and mold the piece to your teeth for a better fit. I attempted this more than once but it just would not mold to my teeth. It was VERY uncomfortable to wear. It actually made my jaw ache and teeth hurt. This product just wasn't for me.

Product Review: New Radiance Naturals Hyaluronic Acid


New Radiance Naturals Hyaluronic Acid Serum

Why haven't I been using this for years!?!? This product is amazing. To be honest, at first the word acid being in the title made me hesitate. It conjured images of skin peeling and red/raw skin. Hyaluronic Acid does not do that! It has made my skin incredibly soft. Obviously the longer you use the product the better results you will see, but the soft skin is pretty much immediate (which is what got me hooked). Another thing to point out is that I have extremely dry skin and although my skin has not become totally perfect from using the product, my skin is no longer as dry as it once was. Also, my skin tone has evened out a bit. My skin is very sensitive and also prone to breakouts but this product did not irritate my skin one bit. It does not clog your pores either. I've actually had significantly less problems with breakouts since using the New Radiance Naturals Hyaluronic Acid AND my makeup goes on much smoother now that the texture of my skin has improved. 
The application of the product is simple. 
Here is what I do: 
1. Wash/exfoliate skin (I use a konjac sponge)
2. Pat face dry
3. Use the dropper on the product to squeeze a small dollop of the slightly gelled liquid on a finger. 
4. Rub it on your face and neck (avoiding the eyes and mouth of course). 
5. Wait for it to dry (which only takes seconds)
6. Apply your moisturizer 
I mostly just apply once before bed but you can apply this twice a day. I've applied it under makeup before and it didn't affect it.
I definitely give this product 5 stars.

It's been a long time...

I can't believe how long it has been since I've posted anything. Sorry to my followers, but I'm back now! I've decided that I will review all sorts of things this time around in addition to books (movies, music, products, etc). I think I will have fun doing this and maybe introduce y'all to some new things. 

Talk to you again soon,
