Cheek Retractor -Dental Mouth Opener

 

I have a dear friend who told me of a game she played with her kids last summer. It’s called Speak Out and it involves using Dental Cheek Retractors from Dental DutyYou have each person insert the mouth retractor, then attempt to recite a phrase while others try to interpret what they are saying. It’s a hilarious game and it’s hard to keep a straight face while watching the speaker try to talk around the retractor.

 

 

 

Dental Cheek Retractors from Dental Duty are made from high quality, professional grade materials and is smooth and comfortable to wear. These can be used for dental exams and treatment, for playing Speak Out, or for applying tooth whiteners and keeping them from beingdisturbed by swallowing or saliva. They are washable and reusable over and over. They come in varying sizes and packages. We tried both the medium and large sizes and felt that the large was best for the game .

Best Bamboo Alternative Down Pillow from Blissful Serenity

SONY DSC

I love the feeling I get when I’ve had a good night’s sleep. The whole day just seems to go better. Conversely, the day drags on and on and I find myself easily irritated when I’ve tossed and turned all night. Our bodies were made to rest and reset so it makes sense that they don’t work as well when we don’t get sufficient rest. I just got a Best Bamboo Alternative Down Pillow from Blissful Serenity and I’ve been trying it out for the last week and a half.

The Best Bamboo Alternative Down Pillow from Blissful Serenity comes rolled up when delivered. It’s very tightly rolled, but it unfolds into a flat rectangle almost immediately when the tape is cut. Slice open the plastic and the pillow begins to fill with air and rise. At this point, you can grab it on either end and shake it or you can put it in the dryer on air only for 15-20 minutes. I tried shaking it but decided it needed the full treatment so I put it in the dryer. It was so full when I pulled it out! I could barely it into the pillowcase!

The Best Bamboo Alternative Down Pillow from Blissful Serenity is made from bamboo, so it’s hypoallergenic and feels cooling when you use it. The liner is memory foam, so it retains its shape better than standard fill pillows. It comes in a case that unzips so that you can remove it to wash it easily. Inside the case, the pillow itself also opens. This is so you can add or remove fluff to your liking. The whole pillow is washable though, so you can rest assured if it needs cleaning, it won’t affect the fluffability (I just made that up) of the pillow. If you buy it and it doesn’t do what you wanted it to do, rest assured that Blissful Serenity has offered a 100% guarantee.

Look how big my new Blissful Serenity pillow is!

AHAVA Dead Sea Mud Dermud Intensive Hand Cream

 

SONY DSC

 

Winter hasn’t even begun yet but my skin feels like it’s been going on forever. My husband has an ever worse problem. His skin literally peels on his hands and it becomes painful when it becomes raw. We’ve tried so many different remedies: inexpensive and high end lotions and creams, presceription creams, different essentail oils- nothing seems to really work that well. I was offered a trial of AHAVA Dead Sea Mud Dermud Intensive Hand Cream and jumped at the chance. At first I was just looking for something to help my dry skin, but then when I put it on it felt amazing. I just had to share with my husband.

 

 

AHAVA Dead Sea Mud Dermud Intensive Hand Cream is a thick, luxurious cream, not a lotion. It comes in a 3.4 fl. oz tube. It rubs in fairly quickly and doesn’t leave a greasy film. It’s got a light pleasant scent but, even better, it continues to keep my skin protected for hours. I even washed my hands after I had applied the cream and it still made my skin feel soft and much smoother. I’m not a fan of the tiny wrinkles my skin has been developing lately but it seems like they’ve even diminished!

I’m definitely a fan of AHAVA Dead Sea Mud Dermud Intensive Hand Cream and I would buy it again for sure!

Queen Size Bamboo Pillow from Xtreme Comfort

 

SONY DSC

 

I believe getting a good night’s sleep is key to leading a healthy, productive life. I am a 9 hour a night sleeper. I can sleep less for a few days but then I need to make up for it by sleeping in. I have chronic pain and a back/hip injury that makes sleeping difficult to do for long periods. I wake up many times needing to adjust my position or being uncomfortable. One thing I notice is that if my pillow isn’t in a good position, I suffer for it. I buy pillows new each year so that they are kept in good shape.

 

 

This year I got a Queen Size Bamboo Pillow from Xtreme Comfort. I can’t believe how comfortable this pillow is! It comes rolled up into a cylindrical shape and quite small. Once I cut the tape it flattened out into a rectangular shape but it was still quite flat. Then I cut the end of the plastic it had been sealed it and it expanded to a regular pillow shape. I gave it some fluffing by hand, then I gave it a 20 minute ride in the dryer on air only. It expanded even more than before!

 

 

The Queen Size Bamboo Pillow from Xtreme Comfort is made from a bamboo based viscose. It’s hypoallergenic and great for allergy sufferers. It comes with a zippered case for easy removal for cleaning. The pillow itself is also washable. The bamboo contents hold their shape well, so you can use the pillow over and over and it won’t flatten out like so many others pillows are prone to do. The filling is encased inside the pillow but there is a zipper so you can add or remove filling to your own preference. The outer liner is luxurious and really feels like quality material. The biggest test is how it feels when I’m sleeping. It took me a couple of times to get it feeling just right, but now I can’t imagine sleeping with any of those old pillows I used to buy.  And it comes with a 100% money back guarantee so if I hadn’t liked it I could have asked for my money back. I think the Queen Size Bamboo Pillow from Xtreme Comfort is a great pillow for the price and I would recommend it!

World’s Best Cat Litter

kiki-stretch

Please do something about my litter box!

World’s Best Cat Litter sent me a trial sample of their Cat Litter to review. I have to say, this is one of the best products I’ve ever had the pleasure of sampling! It compresses naturally absorbent corn in a patented process so the waste is immediately clumped and odors are trapped inside. It doesn’t make bricks like clay litter, so no digging and scraping to get rock hard clumps loosened and no lingering odors from the kitty box. I come into the house and take a deep breath now because I no longer smell that residual smell.

 

SONY DSC

 

We use an automatic litter box and it’s always been a fight to get the chunks of hardened litter off of the sides. If it’s clumped onto the side the automatic scoop can’t work so it freezes until someone comes and cleans the sides so it can move freely. The World’s Best Cat Litter doesn’t harden, it just clumps and then the scoop can pick it up and deposit it into the litter tray.

 

 

I was concerned about the cost until I saw how well it works and for how long. I am a customer for life now. I tell everyone I know that has cats that they have to try this litter. World’s Best Cat Litter was kind enough to give me coupons to hand out. I had no problem finding people who wanted to try it once I told them how well it works. And none of the mess of that dust all over. My floor is so much cleaner now! No silica or other products in this litter- it’s all sustainable formula.

I’m a happy kitty now!

Great for the environment, odor and dust free, safe for your cats, and even flushable! I find World’s Best Cat Litter Worthy of 2 thumbs up!

Omega Flex Joint Supplements from Marine Essentials

 

SONY DSC

I have a back injury that causes chronic back pain. I’ve tried everything out there to reduce the pain and keep me mobile. Sometimes I get relief, sometimes I don’t. To add insult to injury, I now have a hip issue to go with the back pain. It can be increasingly difficult to move around because of the pain, but if I don’t move around I stiffen up and over time I lose muscle tone. I try as much as possible not to take pain relievers as they can be addictive or cause other issues over time.

 

SONY DSC

 

Omega Flex Joint Supplements from Marine Essentials are made to help with joint support. The main ingredients in Omega Flex Joint Supplements are FruiteX-B, 5-Loxin, and Calamarine. Calamarine is derived from calamari and provides 500% more joint-lubricating DHA than fish oil. DHA is said to improve blood flow and shore up the structure of joints. FruiteX-B is a form of boron, which fights inflammation, and 5-Loxin keeps the enzyme that degrades your cartilage at bay, so you body can experience both healing and protection in the joints. According to their information, Marine Essentials says that  Fruitex-B and 5-Loxin can show improvement in as little as 7 days time. Lastly is Hyaluronic Acid, which is included to help with joint lubrication.

 

SONY DSC

 

Two Omega Flex Joint Supplements from Marine Essentials gelcaps are taken each day and can be taken with or without food. I prefer to take them with a meal to keep from having fish burps. I don’t know that this product has an issue with that or not, but I’ve learned over time that it’s better to eat with Fish Oil supplements that suffer afterwards.

I have not taken Omega Flex Joint Supplements from Marine Essentials faithfully. I read the label and it is supposed to be refrigerated. I find it difficult to remember to take it because it isn’t stored in my pill container with the other pills I take. I cannot give positive or negative advice regarding my expereince yet as a result. I will continue to take this product and report back when I have a better idea of the results one way or the other.

Better Body Probiotics for Weight Loss Support from Hyperbiotics

SONY DSC
I’ve really been trying to up my activity level and lose weight but the struggle has been significant since I have a back and hip injury that prevents me from doing many physical activities. One thing I know I need to do is eat healthy. I also need to make sure that my digestive system is at peak performance while making some dietary changes that will allow me to function better and lose weight. I take a series of multivitamins, vitamins, and minerals already, but I also make sure I take a good probiotic. I find that my system tends to work more efficiently if I have laid the groundwork for a healthy digestive system. Probiotics are extremely helpful in that regard. To make probiotics work even better, prebiotics are a must!
SONY DSC
Hyperbiotics has a product called  Better Body  Probiotics for Weight Loss Support. This product contains 6 different targeted strains of probiotic along with Orafti 95, which is a prebiotic that helps to nourish the healthy bacteria in my system so it runs more efficiently. Also included is White Kidney Bean Extract, which inhibits caloric impact of any starchy foods you eat and lowers your glucose response and glycemic index.
This pill is in tablet form and is not enterically coated or in a gelcap. Both of those types of pills have been shown not to work well for probiotics because the probiotic doesn’t make it past the stomach acids before it’s destroyed. Hyperbiotics Better Body  Probiotics has a patented BIO-tract protection and time-release delivery system that raises the amount of probiotics that make it into the gastrointestinal tract from 4% to over 60%. This means much better results and much less wasted product.
SONY DSC
 Daily dosage varies according to the results you are looking for. For a daily regimen for regular maintenance, 2 tablets twice a day are all it takes. For a weight loss regimen, 2 tablets twice a day are recommended. I tried to lose weight using these pills, as the additional White Bean Extract is supposed to reduce the digestion and absorption of carbohydrates by up to 66 percent. This was not apparent to me, as I took 4 pills daily for 2 weeks and didn’t lose any weight. I can not recommend this product for weight loss, but I do believe that it’s a good product for both the prebiotic and probiotics.

Purina One Smartblend True Instinct Dog Food Review

purina-2

I have been trying out Purina One Smartblend True Instinct Dog Food on my German Shepherd for the past month. It took a little bit of work to shift him from his old food as his tummy tends to be a bit sensitive, but we combined his old food with the new food to begin with and then tapered off of the old food. The Purina One Dog Food looks better than the old brand and it seems to be preferable to him as well. He never really got excited about his food before. Sometimes we had to prompt him a number of times to get him to eat. Not with Purina One! He made a beeline from the house to his dish as soon as he realized it was there!

His coat is shinier and he is more active. I’m not sure if that’s a plus or not!😉 He’s looking much more healthy now and I think we’ve found his new food. I will be using my extra coupon for $3.00 off on my next bag of dog food. Thanks to Purina and Smiley360 for the opportunity to get this product for free for the purpose of review.

Brooklyn Beans Midnight Dark Chocolate Cocoa

Brooklyn Beans Midnight Dark Chocolate Cocoa

I just got a box of heavenly cocoa from Brooklyn Beans. It’s Brooklyn Beans Midnight Dark Chocolate Cocoa and it’s so rich and creamy! It’s a decadent treat anytime I want to spoil myself or my family. My grandson and his girlfriend come over and they love to have cocoa. This is so easy- I drop it in the Keurig and in less than a minute they’ve got a tasty, thick mug of cocoa. It doesn’t taste like it was made with water though. It tastes like it’s been prepared with rich, full fat cream!

SONY DSC

Brooklyn Beans Midnight Dark Chocolate Cocoa comes in a box of 40 K-Cups. That’s enough to satisfy my chocolate cravings for quite a while and, at 70 calories per K-Cup, I don’t feel guilty about enjoying a cup now and then. I actually loved drinking this cocoa with a couple of slices of banana chocolate chip bread. Just the right amount of chocolate and banana goodness paired perfectly in my opinion.

If you haven’t tried Brooklyn Beans Midnight Dark Chocolate Cocoa yet, give it a shot. Or try any of the other Brooklyn Beans Cocoa K-Cups- they’re all very good!
