Dead Sea Mud Mask Review #deadseamask

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.




Sometimes I feel like there is nothing better than the feeling of fresh clean skin.  Well, for a change I found a small addition to my fresh clean skin routine that I loved.



I needed to be thorough when reviewing the Instanatural Dead Sea Mud, so I recruited a few friends. Why not right? So not only did I gather my data, but I used the data of 3 generations to see if it worked the same on all of us.

First off, the ages of guinea pigs, err, I mean testers, ranged from 10 years old all the way to 72. We all sat around and slathered mud on our skin, let it sit until dry, and rinsed it off to discuss or thoughts.

To start, lets discuss the mud itself. The texture of the mud is unlike any mud I have ever used. It is lighter going on the skin and feels a little more like a smooth gelatin than a traditional mud. I thought it was unusual at first, but it was so easy to apply that I realized this texture is amazing. The was no pushing and pulling to get it on my skin.

Hurry up and wait.
Do you every feel that way? With the Dead Sea Mud I started to feel like it was not going to dry out. Not knowing everything about the product, it was possible that it wouldn't. But I remained patient and it finally dried out. I am not sure that it really took any longer than a traditional mask, I really think that holding a conversation for more than 5 minutes with my sister was starting to make me feel like I needed to crawl out of my own skin. Normally it takes longer than five minutes, but keep in mind we had been under the same roof for three days already. That should be a worlds record for the two of us.

Get it off me!
Okay, now it was time to wash my face. I forgot how much of an effort it can be to get mud off. Okay so it may not be hard for you, but I may have put mine on a little thick. It tool a washcloth and a small effort to clean the mud off of my face. Then Voila! I had clean skin!

The much awaited outcome.
Now that I had gone through the entire process with three other people we gathered our thoughts. The 10 year old was useless. I think she would have told me she liked the mud from my backyard smeared on her face. But all of the adults agreed that our faces felt better. No, they did not "look" better, but all of us agreed our skin felt softer. Usually after a mask I feel like my skin is tight or slightly sticky. I did not get that feeling from this. Just a lightly refreshed feeling and a feeling I needed to apply a mud mask more often. If she is lucky, I might even allow my sister to join me.


Pet Stain Remover and Odor Eliminator Review


Disclaimer: I received the product described below free of charge. All opinions are my own and have not been influenced in any way.



Being a pet owner sometimes means cleaning up things we really do not want to. If my carpet could talk, I am sure you would run away plugging your ears. In fact, my husband's feet would have some great stories to make you cringe too. He is the one that usually "finds" the unwanted items left on the floor by our dogs.

Not only did I want to test this product in my home, but nearly two years ago, we had a BIG mess inside of our car. Our large dog fell ill and while in transport to the vet, lost the entire contents of her bladder. I thought that I had managed to clean it up, but the car still smelled. I even took the car to have it detailed, but unfortunately the detail shop advised me that he did not have pet odor removal products available for the car.

So my problem was not limited to the carpet in the car. The back seats were folded flat to allow the dog to rest comfortably while being transported and her lovely little gift ran between the sections of the seats. So I not only needed to get the smell out of carpet, but the actual seats needed to be cleaned also. The biggest problem, there is no visible stain to locate. The auto detailing took care of that for me. So on a stinky hunt I went.

The product could not be easier to use. I followed the instructions for an older stain and saturated the area I thought the stain was. I allowed the product to stay on a little longer than one hour, just for good measure. To completely saturate the area, I used about half the bottle. But, remember that I was "guessing" at where the odor was coming from.

After my extended "hour" passed, I used a dry towel to absorb and excess liquids from the car seat and carpet. Then I waited. I allowed the car to air dry with the windows cracked for 2 days. I had to do this in my garage since I live where the sky leaks ALL of the time.

After my two day wait, the car no noticeable foul odor. I could smell a hint of the scent of the Pro Vet Choice but it was not strong or overbearing. It is a light clean scent. As I ran my heater and warmed my car up during driving, I noticed a light foul odor again. I repeated the sames steps as before and have not had the scent return. It has been over 2 weeks and I have heated my car up and cooled it back down again.

I honestly could not be happier to have a clean smelling car again. I was beginning to wonder if I would ever get the stink out.

Silicone Heat Resistant Baking Gloves #SelectCulinary



I cannot tell you how many times I have been cooking in my over and had a hot pad slip out of my hand or an oven mitt slide right off my hand. There have also been countless times that I have used a hot pad and bumped the top of my hand on an oven rack. OUCH!

When I originally was given the opportunity to try out the silicone heat resistant gloves, I had no expectations. Once I used them, all of my oven mitts went in the trash and all of my hot pads turned into trivets for my table.

I instantly fell in love. They slide on just like a glove and protect your hands from hot objects. No sliding off my hands and no bumping exposed parts of the hands on oven racks with these little babies! Ieven gave them an unexpected test, that I would not recommend. I managed to pull them off and toss them on my stove top. No big deal, except my burner was on! EEKS! I looked at the cute little white blisters that formed on my new found love and almost cried. Then I noticed the blisters started to fade. Really?? When the gloves completely cooled, there was no evidence of my stupidity anywhere. They went right back to looking brand new! 

The only downfalls I could find:
They come in orange
They may not fit really large hands

There you go. If you don't have giant hands and do not care that these amazing gloves are orange, these belong in your kitchen!

Disclaimer: I received the product below free of charge to facilitate my review. All opinions are my own.


If you are like everyone else, you probably carry a few extra pounds around with you. We are always searching for the easiest way possible to drop those extra pounds. I know I don't want to change the way I eat, and I certainly do NOT want to exercise. Yuck!

 Summit Nutrition's Garcinia Cambogia has allowed me to just take a pill to simplify my weight loss. I have always been resistant to taking diet pills due to the fact that they make me feel horrible. Garcinia Cambogia did not make me feel like  my heart was going to jump put of my chest, did not make me feel like I was going to starve to death, and it certainly did not turn my insides upside-down.

All in all, While taking the Garcinia Cambogia pills for two weeks, I lost a quick 8 pounds. Now I know that seems small, but it was only 2 weeks time AND I did not do anything else. That means no exercise, not change in diet...nothing! Imagine what I could do if I changed my diet and exercised.

Old Factory Candle Gift Set Review #oldfactory

Disclaimer: The product described below was provided free of charge to facilitate the review. All opinions are my own.



When I was given the opportunity to try Old Factory Candles and provide my opinion, I was elated. I love candles and now that I do not have small children running through my house, I can place them anywhere that I want...providing it is safe.

That means that I can set candles in my bathrooms, my kitchen, my family room...where ever I want.
When given the opportunity to pick a scent, I chose the Fall Harvest Collection that contains one of each of Pumpkin Spice, Cranberry,  and Autumn Leaves. I thought the fall scents might get me into a holiday spirit.

The candles arrived and I was very excited to pop open the box to smell each one. They all smelled like anyone would think. The one that caught me off guard was the Autumn leaves. It really smelled just like leaves! I thought that the name was going to be for a mix of fall scents. Nope, it smells just like the name implies.

The candles burned clean at all times. Since they are in their own small jars, it was easy to blow out the candle when I was done and place the lid on the jar to prevent any smoke from lingering. My only disappointment was in the size of the candles. These are really not any bigger than a votive candle. They are in cute little jars with lids and would be very easy to break up to give as individual gifts.

Manufactures information on the 100% Alpha Garcinia Cambogia Extract

Garcinia Cambogia is extract from the South East Asian fruit Garcinia Gummi-Gatta, part of the tamarind family. It is an all natural extract shown to suppress your appetite, burn fat while maintaining your lean muscle mass, and increase fat loss 3 times more than diet and exercise alone. Garcinia Cambogia has also been proven to increase serotonin levels and has all of these positive effects without negative side effects.

What Does Garcinia Do?

If your body does not use carbohydrates as energy, they are converted into fat and stored in the body as fat cells. Alpha Garcinia Cambogia stops the enzymes in your body from turning carbohydrates into these fat cells. It also assists your body in converting fat into glycogen, a readily available source of energy for your body to use. Other positive benefits of Garcinia are increased serotonin levels which can positively affect many aspects of the users lives including mood, sleep, and satiety.

What Sets Alpha Garcinia Cambogia Apart From The Rest?

Each capsule in Alpha Garcinia Cambogia is 1000MG of Garcinia Cambogia, compared to only 500MG in competitors capsules. This means you only need to take one capsule per dose and get double the effect per capsule. This makes taking Alpha Garcinia Cambogia a pleasure and increases the effects dramatically when compared to other low quality competitors on the market.
