Essential Oils Natural Acres – Peppermint and Bergamot

Essential Oils Natural Acres – Peppermint and Bergamot

Essential Oils

Essential oils, helping many people through their day to day lives.

We recently had the pleasure of reviewing these two amazing essential oils. Each time I get a new essential oil from a brand I am not familiar with I put it through a few tests, sight, fragrance and blotter test.  This helps me distinguish the higher quality oils from the lower quality oils and what I will end up using them for.

 

I have found both the peppermint and bergamot to be spot on with fragrance and sight, the oils are the right color, they have the right consistency. They have passed the blotter test, but they leave behind staining but the stain does not have an oily appearance or texture. I do believe these are pure essential oils, but I feel they maybe on the lower end of pure. For example, not distilled as many times or from subpar parts of the plants.

Because they are not what I consider a higher grade these will be used in my diffuser for scent quality, and bath and body products as more of a fragrance and not for their medical benefits.

They both have beautiful on spot fragrances, the bergamot is commonly used in many men’s applications due to its woodsy citrus like fragrance and the peppermint is used to help unblock the sinuses and to give a warm feeling to the home.

essential oils

Both these essential oils are modestly priced and I would purchase again.

If you are just starting out with essential oils or looking for essential oils that are modestly priced, I do recommend Natural Acres essential oils. They are pure, but just not the highest grade. With any product thought the higher, the quality the higher the price and this holds very true with essential oils.

Natural Acres – Peppermint Essential Oil  $8.99

Natural Acres – Bergamot Essential Oil   $9.19

Stress and Dark Eye Circles #SwissVita


Stress and Dark Eye Circles

Dark Eye Circles

I have been under a tremendous amount of stress lately, and with that stress comes dark eye circles. Typically I would cake on makeup and call it a day if I had to leave the house, but caking on the makeup is a quick fix but you can tell it’s just that, makeup!

I needed a way to actually get rid of the dark eye circles because the stress will not be leaving anytime soon, nor will the lack of sleep due to the stress.  So when given the chance to review Swiss Vita eye cream for wrinkles and dark circles I jumped at the chance.

After 10 days of use, what I noticed was them fading and you can see in my video that I didn’t do the corners of my eyes so you can visibly see where the product has been applied to where it hasn’t been applied.

I had a lot of luck with this product removing the dark circles. I can’t comment on the wrinkles, because even at 40 I am fortunate not to have any (yet).  But as good as this product is on the dark eye circles I am sure this will be the first product I reach for.

Getting older is nothing to be ashamed about, our bodies change that’s a given. But growing older can be done gracefully and classy. I prefer to retain as much youth as possible during this time and that includes ensuring I look the best I can, for myself.

Price (At time of review): $29.99

Uarter Waterproof Dog Boots Review

Uarter Waterproof Dog Boots Review

I had the pleasure of reviewing Uarter waterproof dog boots and I can tell you it’s been a hilarious experience. First, they turned our very graceful and agile german shorthair pointer into a clumsy stomping Clydesdale horse.

Dog Boots

Check out our sneak peak video, before we upload the longer hilarious video

The dog boots are very well constructed, they have a skid proof bottom, and dual velcro straps that ensure they stay in place and to offer a more custom fit.  Our hunting dogs play hard in the winter, constantly running fields and chasing field birds.

With their activity level, I felt getting a good pair of solid dog boots would help protect their feet from the elements, not to mention being cut by the ice. We have one hunting dog that would keep on going even if his feet are torn up and bleeding, he is very driven to flushing out those birds. As his owner its our job to ensure his safety and well-being.

These boots are made of rubber, they are water resistant, flexible and ski-resistant.  The soles are very sturdy and secure.  With the dual straps, you can adjust how tight the boots are on your dog, to prevent them from biting or shaking them off. They also have a reflective strip on each of the velcro strips to help make your dog more viewable at night.

These are designed with the dog paw in mind and our dogs don’t seem to be bothered by wearing them short of just the adjustment of having something on their feet. They don’t seem to be in any pain, to indicate the boots would be uncomfortable.

Price: $17.85 to  $18.85

Order on Amazon

DemocraTEA 2016: ClinTEAN & TEArump Teas Review

DemocraTEA 2016: ClinTEAN & TEArump Teas Review

DemocraTEA

When I was offered to review this DemocraTea I jumped on it, because let’s face it this is probably the weirdest election we have seen in a very long time. This is NOT a political post at all I am going to only showcase these teas without letting my political choices known.

Let’s start with the tea as a whole. They are 100% organic and they are absolutely delicious!

Donald TEARump For President:  #MakeTeaGreatAgain  comes in this delicious pure white tea with peach.  What impressed me is that I typically hate fruit flavored tea because it carries a nasty aftertaste. There is nothing but a true to eating a peach taste. I truly loved the way this tea tastes. Made with white tea and organic flavor.

Hillary ClinTEAn for President: #ImWithTea comes in this delicious vanilla essence flavor, made with black tea, carob, natural flavor and stevia. Again, I am not a fan of vanilla tea and this was another hit. There is no artificial flavors or nasty aftertastes.

While this DemocraTEA is very collectible and funny, the fact is they are truly a flavor punching delicious tea. They are 100% organic and certified by OTCO, they are also Kosher! You could not ask for a better flavor in tea, I was truly impressed.

 

What came as a surprise, is I made about 6 ounces of each of them to test out side by side. When I was done with my test, I dumped them together and called it a night. This tea together rock! They are good on their own but they are even more amazing together.

If you are looking for quality teas that are sure to bring some chuckles and heaTEAd debates jump on these teas today!

To order DemocraTEA head on over to The Tea Book

On Amazon

At the time of this review, the price is $7.00 for 20 tea bags

10x Magnification Makeup Mirror Review

10x Magnification Makeup Mirror Review

We got the pleasure of reviewing another magnification makeup mirror by Mirror on a Rope.This time, the mirror is 10X magnification.

Magnification Makeup Mirror

This magnification mirror offers a LED light that circles around the mirror. It’s not overly bright, so it will not blind you while you are trying to do close up work. But, that is  not to say it’s not bright enough either because it is.

Mirror on a Rope made a home run with this mirrors base! It’s swivel ball joint  type base that you can easily move in all directions, left to right, and up and down. There is not an angle you will not be able to achieve with this makeup mirror.

The next bonus is the suction cup attachment. This is not one of those lick and stick types. You simply twist the base and the suction cups locks onto the surface, you untwist the base to get the suction to detach.

The mirror size is about 6 inches, you can see the size in the video as I compare it next to a makeup brush to give you a better idea on size. This is the perfect size for hands-free makeup work. You might wonder why anyone would need a magnification mirror, the truth is, you would be shocked at all the imperfections we leave behind when we are leaning into a mirror to do our makeup or when the lighting is inadequate.

This magnification makeup mirror is a must have for anyone who a makeup junkie like myself. Or even someone who just wants to ensure their makeup is perfect. Your face is a canvas so ensure it looks like a masterpiece!

To Purchase:  Magnification Makeup Mirror

Price:  $21.99
