Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair

 

image

 

I have been a long time Vaseline lotion user and taking care of my skin is always a must. I can say that I have used several Vaseline lotions (yes, I tried them all) and I was so happy when I was chosen by Vaseline and Influenster to test the new Vaseline product. I received a bottle of the new Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair. It is ideal for those with dry, scaly skin which most so us experience during winter!

The new Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair is fragrance-free which is good because it won’t clash with any cologne or perfume you may be using afterwards. It has micro-droplets of Vaseline jelly and it is clinically proven to heal very dry skin in 5 days. I do have combination skin so I tried it first on my elbow and the effect is instant. It leaves the skin really smooth and it dries very quickly too. There’s no greasy or sticky after-feel. Unlike other lotions, you do not have to wait for your skin to dry up before you can put your clothes on. I have tried it on a daily basis and I can say that in this very cold weather, my skin (especially my hands and feet) are always smooth. It keeps my skin smooth and there was even one time when I was such in a hurry that I got no time to put lotion on but my skin was still smooth the entire day!

I have received his bottle for free and I will definitely purchase this product when this one runs out!

Old Factory Candles Review and Giveaway!

I am a self-confessed coffee lover and candle lover. That is why testing this product is like hitting two birds with one stone! I was so excited when I received the candles. I specifically chose to order these scents mainly because I haven’t yet bought a candle with a coffee scent.

The packaging is really cute. The box and bottles are something you can reuse afterwards. One box comes with 3 candles, each with a different scent. The ones I received are Coffee Bean, Hazelnut and Chai Tea. They are collectively called as Coffee Shop. πŸ™‚

These candles are hand-poured in the USA with natural soy wax, self-trimming wicks, and premium fragrance oils. According to the company, the candles burn clean and even for 20 hours. It has always been my preference to choose clean burning candles so that’s plus points for this product.

I have tested each and I’m now burning the Chai Tea while I’m writing this. I’ve noticed that they do burn clean. Because the candles are made from natural soy wax (produced from soy beans), they produce very little soot and they are less likely to trigger allergies than artificial waxes. The scents are spot on. The strongest scent out of these three is Hazelnut. It filled out the room with its scent right away when I lit it. The Coffee Bean scent smells like a mild scent of coffee. The most calming of them all is the Chai Tea.

These are candles that I would definitely buy. These candles are also perfect gift ideas. There’s a scent available for every room in your house. Old Factory offers the following scents:

Instanatural Vitamin C Facial Toner

image

I don’t normally put too much stuff on my face. I’m a water-facial wash-moisturizer type of girl and sticking to the essentials is what I am used to. When I shop, I get overwhelmed with so many facial products that I really can’t figure out which ones are better than the rest. I know this is a problem for a lot of girls. The golden rule is: Always stick to natural ingredients and carefully choose the products that is best for your skin type.

I have combination skin and I consider myself quite lucky to have healthy facial skin. Never had acne but I usually get one big flashy pimple (gross I know) during my periods and even if it breaks, it doesn’t scar at all. That is one of the reasons why I don’t put too much stuff on my face for fear that it might trigger something really bad. After researching, I found out that a facial toner is really good in order for our face to keep its PH balance before we put moisturizers etc. So when I was given InstaNatural Vitamin C Facial Toner for testing, I gave it a go to see what it can do for my skin. This product is in a spray bottle so you can just spray it on after you clean your face. I tried to spray it first at the back of my wrist to test if I’m allergic to it and good thing, my skin had no reactions to it. I sprayed it on my face and It dried very quickly. Then you can follow through with moisturizer or makeup.

The instant effect is refreshing. It also has a citrusy smell. I had been using the product for 7 days as I’m writing this and the effect on my skin is really good. It balances out my skin. My face is clearer and looks healthier. πŸ™‚

Sticky Suction Car Mount

The first time I used a car mount, I told myself I won’t use any type of car mount again. It practically got stuck in the aircon vent that when I sold my old car, it’s still there! I just didn’t want to damage the air vent so I just left it there as a bonus “problem” for the buyer (of course I warned the buyer about the problem car mount).

So when I recently had an opportunity to review a car mount that I will receive for free in exchange for unbiased and honest feedback, you can just imagine how critical I was from the time I opened the box and tested it. I’m talking about the Sticky Suction Car Mount by iGotTech. When I received it, it was neatly packaged so that’s a good sign. I love it when companies package their items in larger boxes with lotsa lotsa bubble wrap. πŸ™‚

Here it is:

The car mount is pretty stylish with a glossy finish. The suction at the base is wide so it will attach to any flat surface. It has like a larger rectangular part which is the “sticky” part.

So I tried it with my GPS, iPhone, iPad and remote control. The adhesive is strong and it will hold on to whatever you stick to it.

Perfectly matches my baby! πŸ™‚

 

My initial concern was since the product has a sticky area, it might leave a residue on my gadgets but it did not! Another feature of this car mount is that you can use it for as long as you want. You can basically wash the sticky area with water if it loses its stickiness. Plus they do have a 2-year warranty as well so I got nothing to lose!

Sili Sili SiliGuy!

To start off, this guy ain’t silly at all! When I received the item, it was longer than I thought it would be which is a good thing. Very easy-open package. No need to get a scissor and struggle cutting through very hard plastic. The one I received is color black. It is made of good rubber material with a smooth feel. No sharp corners. The flexible parts are the hook, the arms and the legs.

I have an iPhone 5 and I think this product is also good for future iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 plus users πŸ™‚ It is advertised as a “flexible cell phone holder” but I’m telling you, you will never run of other things to do with this flexi SiliGuy.

It can stand on its own.

It’s great that it can hold my GPS and I can hang it wherever. Plus, it doesn’t block the camera installed at the back of my GPS.

Say Hi to my cat!

Even Mindy and Daryl Dixon is hanging out with SiliGuy! :p

As you can see, I really had fun with my SiliGuy. This flexible silicone carmount is designed for any kind of phone that it can hold. It does not have a magnet but it would be a good product addition to have a magnet version of the SiliGuy so we can hang stuff on the fridge too. πŸ™‚ Aside from hanging SiliGuy to hold your recipes while cooking, your phones while working out, your musical pieces while playing an instrument, it can also organize and hold all unsightly cables/cords in your home.

This is a very simple design but can be used with almost everything it can hug! I guess we can call this the universal holder/hugger! Definitely a cool gift idea and something you can also buy for yourself. Have fun with it!

iArrow Sports Armband

I received this product from iArrow in exchange for honest and unbiased feedback. That is not a hard task because I love this product! The item arrived quickly and here are some pictures!

The item is inside this hard plastic case. I had to use a pointed object to open its flap at the back because I don’t want to damage my nails. πŸ™‚ The item came with a little note from the seller and this also includes a screen protector! So you have the strap, screen protector, the case where you put your iPhone 5 and another case where you slide it in. There are no instructions included so I had to put all these pieces together and it’s just easy-peasy to figure it out. πŸ™‚

What I like about this armband is its minimalist style. I’ve seen some sports armband in the market but most of them are too bulky and it kinda drowns my Asian arms! Aside from the perfect fit, the material of the case where you put your iPhone has a matte, rubbery feel and the back of it has a ridged design. I’m using it now as my iPhone case so I can just slide it in the actual armband before I workout. The material of the strap does not irritate my skin so that’s another plus.
