Review: Precisio Tweezers

tweezers

Precisio Professional Grade tweezers by Crave Naturals do exactly what intended exceptionally well. The tweezers come with a lifetime guarantee, can be tried and if not satisfied returned for a full refund or replacement. The tweezers work better than any other tweezer I’ve owned and I’ve owned many. I know the $19..99 price tag may seem a bit steep but they are worth it! These tweezers are stainless steel and built to last! The unique slanted angle shape is perfectly angled for brows and the tips of the tweezers are quite smooth preventing any pinching of the skin or poking!

I’ve been able to tweeze my brows in more than half the time of using other tweezers. The experience has so much nicer too without any pinching or of the bothersome task in trying to grip those tricky stubborn hairs. No more painful tweezers2ingrown hairs here either! I’ve been using these for about a month now and the tips seem to be holding strong. There’s been no declining difference in tweezers meaning they are as accurate as the first day I’ve used them. There’s been no dulling, chipping, are undesirable wear of these.

Other than using these for brows or other beauty needs, these can be used for first aid too. I haven’t the opportunity to use these for that purpose but I’m sure a splinter would be easily removed with the precise tips on these. Something I like is that the tweezers arrive in a case which is great for keeping these sanitized when not in use. There’s not much more to be said other than this is a impressive pair of tweezers. I would highly recommend these to both men, women, and teens! I’m completely sold!

Ultrasport Travel Towel From Shandali Review #UltraSportsTravelTowel

shanditowel

 

The Ultrasport Travel Towel from Shandali is quite nice. What makes this towel truly useful is the fact that it takes up very little space and it absorbs 10x faster than a regular cotton towel! It also dries quite quickly after use especially if left in the sun. This towel has made visiting our local parks to let the kids play in the water features that much more freeing this Summer season. I can simply throw this in our park tote and be on our way. There’s no taking things out and putting back in to have enough space for everything two kids would need in just one very large tote bag. Believe me, regular towels take up a lot of space! Continue reading

Honey Bee Holistics {review & giveaway}

I’m quite impressed with the love and care  that Melissa the mom and creator behind Honeybee Holistics has poured into the products she’s created. Visually I was drawn to her store and with my high standards in only using the best products for myself, my family, and the environment I knew I wouldn’t be disappointed.

Honeybee Holistics offers many wonderful skin care products each being handmade such as soaps, lotions, massage oils, teas, and much more. All products are 100% free of  harmful parabens, petroleum derivatives, and chemicals. Melissa even uses wild-harvested herbs or herbs that she grows on site!

Melissa was more than willing to answer my Etsy Meet and Greet questions! I enjoyed getting to know her and was pretty thrilled to be supporting a stay at home mother whom also plans on homeschooling her children like myself! Read on…

1.Why did you decide to start doing this on Etsy and how long have you been?

~~ I chose to start selling on Etsy because I felt so at home selling my handmade goods with other artists who handmake their wares. I needed another way to get the word out about my business and my website I built www.honeybeeholistics.com I have been with Etsy for 1 year now.

2. What do you enjoy the most when creating your products?

~~I enjoy the meditative properties of stirring my newest creation, or the excitement I feel when my newest creation turns out like I want it!! Plus the opportunities I have to help heal others with my herbs and spirit that I put into every product!

3. Apart from creating things, what do you do?

~~I am a Stay-at-home Mom to my beautiful baby girl Aria who has just turned 11 months! She is the reason I do what I do so I can continue to stay home with her as she grows. I plan to homeschool as well so it gives me the perfect opportunity to be the one who influences her life the most.

4. What inspires you?

~~My daughter, my herbs, my husband, my love for all things natural! It just feels good to be helping others through my products. Some people ask, “Why make soap & lotion when everyone does?” I say to them, “Everyone might make products similar to mine, but NO ONE makes products with my spirit in it because I am the only one who can do that!”

5.In five years you’d like to be…?

~~I would like to have my business established well enough that I can offer jobs to some other stay-at-home Moms in my local community so they can make a way for their children too!


My Thoughts…

I was sent three products from Honeybee Holistics to review. The Organic Baby Ease Massage Oil from the Mama Baby line, Organic Calendula Lotion from the Herbal lotion line, and from the Herbal soap line the Organic Sugar Cookie Soap made with Real Tahitian Vanilla Beans!

The Organic Baby Ease Massage Oil from the Mama Baby line: My baby loves taking a bath and so much so that when bath time is over he gets extremely upset about it. So as much fun as bath time is after hasn’t been all that fun to handle until I tried something new following his bath times! After his bath, I started giving him a baby massage thanks to the Organic Baby Ease oil from Honey Bee Holistics. The included how to give your baby a massage pamphlet  has been super helpful in knowing exaclty what to do and how to do it!

The Baby Ease massage oil is deep penetrating and absorbs fantastically into the skin. It really does help calm a fussy baby! This oils smells great with its added Calendula & Chamomile! It’s 6.00 for 1 ounce but very little goes a long way. I love this product as it’s made my life and my sons a lot easier!

Organic Calendula Lotion from the Herbal lotion line: A great smelling lotion to use on anyone in the family. I love that this lotion comes in a convenient pump bottle. The lotion is light, creamy, and easily can be rubbed into and absorbs well leaving skin with no icky residue behind! Ideal for healing irritated/extremely dry skin (ex. psoriasis/eczema sufferers) especially during wintertime.  I’ve used this on my 3 month old babies dry forehead and where he commonly has some dry skin spots and it was better the next day!

Organic Sugar Cookie Soap
: This soap smells so good that you’ll want to eat it and though the ingredients are all natural, I wouldn’t recommend it! I love the smell of vanilla and was beyond thrilled to find out that the scent comes from Organic Vanilla Essential oil & Real Organic Tahitian Vanilla Bean flecks. The Organic Tahitian Vanilla Beans were hand scraped from their pods and added to the moisturizing soap that contains Organic Fair Trade Shea Butter. These flecks impart a very light vanilla fragrance that is not overpowering at all. Each bar is topped with Organic Raw Sugar swirled throughout the tops!

I love this particular soap and have now found my new favorite place to purchase Organic soaps! I love that each of the soaps have special healing properties!

Overall I am very happy with the products I was able to review! And I’m excited to let you know about a special going on right now of  limited quantity of special gift certificates for purchase! This would  be a perfect Mother’s Day gift… Can you believe it’s already coming up on May8th? You can purchase a 26.00 certificate for 15.00, click here for details! I personally took advantage of this offer because my mom could definitely use some pampering! 🙂

Luma Tweeze {Review & Giveaway}

Did you know that tweezers are known to have been used in predynastic Egypt?  Tweezers are something that most everyone has on hand for many needs such as  personal grooming, removing insect stingers & splinters, crafting, and even for working on computers.

I recently was given the opportunity to review the Luma Tweeze from As Seen on Tv. And though I personally won’t be working on any computers with these, I believe they are very handy when it comes to using them for my own personal grooming needs and removing unwanted objects from the skin.

So what’s so special about Luma Tweeze compared to the regular run of the mill tweezers you can pick up in any store? Well, these tweezers are the only precision lighted tweezers with a built-in LED light and magnifier! These features, combined with the stainless steel precision tips, make Luma Tweeze the easiest to use tweezers ever created!

I like that these tweezers give me the wanted magnification and the precision when tweezing. It’s so much nicer than getting blinded by one of those large magnified, very brightly lighted bathroom mirrors! These are great to keep one for around the house and I can throw one in my purse for on the go fashion or bug stinging emergencies. And no worries about  these tweezers damaging anything else whether in my bathroom draw or in my purse with the tips because there’s a cap to go on the the Luma Tweeze when you are through.

Overall,I am pretty happy with this product as it’s very easy to handle!  I consider it a must have for all your tweezing needs.
