After many years our electric can opener had died. We had a manual one as a backup, but Tony and I both had so much trouble trying to get it to work, that we tried another one. Tony can get that manual one to work but I can’t, I have to squeeze so hard that it hurts my wrist. When I saw that Bartelli was looking for reviewers of their Soft Edge Automatic Can Opener, I applied right away.
Thankfully they selected me and provided me with an Amazon code to order the blue version for free. When it arrived I quickly ran to the store to get some AAA batteries which are not included so I could test it out. Continue reading →
The Azure Naturals Ocean Minerals line contains over 90 powerful Oceanic Minerals, micro minerals, vitamins and vital nutrients help repair, rejuvenate and deeply nourish your skin, giving it a healthier, more youthful glow. This wonderful line of products is specially formulated to work together to improve the effectiveness of one another. I was lucky enough to be chosen to review four of the products in the line for free.
You should start your day with the ULTIMATE Ocean Mineral Cleanser. This cleanser has High-End Spa Quality Oceanic Minerals and Micro Minerals To Nourish, Repair Skin Lesions, Dry Skin, Blemished Skin and Rough & Damaged Skin, MSM Increases Cell Permeability, Vitamin E and Rose Hip Oil help diminish discoloration and Repair Scarring Leaving your Skin With a Clean, Healthy, Youthful Glow. This cleanser is great because it has age-defying properties, capable of neutralizing acne-causing bacteria, unclogging pores, evening skin tone, reducing redness, fading discoloration and more! Even as I enter my early 30’s my skin still breaks out. I know it is due to stress, but sometimes stress is unavoidable. I have been using this cleanser (as well as the other products in the line) for almost three weeks now and it has done a great job controlling breakouts. There were a few days where I started to get a lot of white heads and pimples so I switched to my old facial cleanser and it wasn’t helping at all. I went back to this cleanser, twice a day and by morning all my blemishes were smaller and less visible.
You follow the cleanser with the ULTIMATE Ocean Mineral Toner. The secret in the toner is the phytochemicals, polysaccharides and bio-available oceanic minerals and micro minerals working together to activate enzyme promoting skin cell repair & renewal . They also encourage collagen production to restore firmness & elasticity which prevent premature aging of skin. Micro minerals help repair, rejuvenate and deeply nourish your skin, Irish Moss and Kelp (Algae) stabilizes minerals that deeply moisturize and brighten your skin. You can spray on your skin, or apply with a cotton ball. This is the only product in the line that I tried that I wasn’t thrilled with. It seemed too harsh for my face. It always burned my eyelids and lips so I wiped it off those areas immediately. When you are using it as a spray, you can’t really control where it goes. It also irritated other parts of my skin but once I put the moisturizer on, it seemed to calm down, and the redness would go away. Continue reading →
Do you have trouble falling asleep at night? I do. I must have the tv on for a little while but then I wake up and shut it off, unless the cable box has already timed out and turned itself off. Sometimes my mind goes racing in a bunch of different directions and I replay every conversation, every action over and over until I stress myself out so bad that I can’t fall asleep.
I hate taking pills because they generally leave me feeling groggy in the morning. I am always on the lookout for non-pill forms of relaxation. Owning my own house has allowed me to relax in ways not possible when we were renting. Sure we are in the middle of a bunch of home improvement projects but this is all mine. I can go out on the deck in my pajamas and enjoy a cup of coffee while watching all kinds of birds visit my feeder. Even the occasional deer stops by to enjoy some apples or berries from my (or my neighbors) yard. Continue reading →
