10 Credit Card & 2 Passport RFID Blocking Protectors Set | Review




GET THE DETAILS:

What card types will Number 1 in Service products shield and protect against EP?
The patented Secure Sleeves are designed to shield from electronic pick-pocketing (EP) all 13.56Mhz contact-less credit cards, passports, drivers licenses, ISO 14443A/B and EPC Gen1/Gen2 contact-less smart cards; any contact-less card that operates at 13.56 Mhz and above.
Our Sleeves Shield These Types of Cards: 
• All new contact-less credit cards and debit cards
• US Passport Cards
• Enhanced Driver's Licenses such as Washington, Michigan, New York, Vermont, and Canadian provinces.
• Many transit cards such as the DC Metro and Boston CharlieTM card
• TWICTM (Transportation Worker Identification Credential)
• HID iClass, HID MIFARE®, HID FlexSmart, DESFire
• Indala FlexSmart
• Any card ISO 14443A/B or ISO 15693 compatible
• All MIFARE® and DESFire compatible cards
• sQuid cards used in Europe
• Military CAC (Common Acess Cards)
• New Government PIV (Personal Identity Verification) cards such as the Linc-Pass
• New long range RFID EPC Gen1/Gen2 cards
How RFID Blocking Works
By creating a shield that blocks the ability to power and communicate with the RFID chip, our products protect personal information stored on these items. Unfortunately, industry-standard security measures implemented for user protection are easily by-passed with modification, so complete protection requires additional security.


MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW:

With all the credit card hacking and scams lately, I wanted to get something to help protect my cards while I am out, and save me from any mishaps. I didn't use the passport piece in this set because I don't travel internationally, so my review is solely based on the credit card holders.

At first when I saw these, I thought for sure it was a rip off. They seem like flimsy paper pouches. But before coming on here and writing that, I wanted to take apart one of the sleeves and really see what it was make of. The outside of the sleeve is just like paper, nothing special. I sacrificed one sleeve and tore it apart. In between the paper layers there is a foil layer, which I imagine is the part that is the RFID blocker. The sleeve itself is pretty sturdy, and holds up fairly well.

My cards fit securely in the sleeves nicely, and they easily go right back into my wallet. It does make it a bit more time consuming when getting my cards out, but in the long run its well worth it. Personally I think something like these would be great to have if you are traveling and want that added protection. For daily use, you may want something a bit more sturdy. It's more of a personal preference I guess. Overall this is a pretty good product!

ToeNail Nipper by KlipPro | Review




GET THE DETAILS:

- This Toe Nail Nipper is great for thick nails, Ingrown nails or Deformed nails. Blades open over 1" wide. Top of blades are slightly curved to contour around nails. Easy to cut and maneuver to provide clean and smooth cuts.
- Handle is 5" long for easy grip and control. Handle design increases traction and anti-slippage.
- Made with high quality stainless steel. Easy to clean. Simply wipe with alcohol after use.
- Plastic tip cover locks blades to keep them clean and secure while in storage.


MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW:

This was the first time I have ever used a nail clipper like this before, so I was excited to see how it compared to traditional nail clippers. To my surprise, this nail nipper is so easy to use! I can get into the hard to reach areas of the nails (both toenails and fingernails) and have a clean cut. It provides a nice curved cut shape, and doesn't split my nails.

It comes with a protective cover to keep on the tip of the nail nipper when you aren't using as it is quite pointy and sharp. If you are used to using traditional clippers, it may take you a few tries to get the feel for this, but you will easily get the hang of it! I also use it around my cuticle area to trim away any dead skin when doing a manicure.

Overall this is a very nifty nipper! It does exactly what it claims, and is a new part of my mani/pedi routine!

BBQ Grill Brush | Review




GET THE DETAILS:

Your Search for the Perfect Grill Brush is Finally Over. 

This is a seriously awesome grill brush. It is by far the sturdiest grill brush you will ever own and makes a great gift for the grill-master in your family. It is well-designed, very sturdy and super long lasting. It should last several years and won't leave bristles behind.

The 18" handle is long enough that, even when the grill is on or is still hot, you can feel comfortable that you will not scorch your clothing or arm hair during the grill-cleaning process.

This is the mean machine of grill brushes! It cleans like magic. No need for muscle with this one - it does all the work for you. This grill brush cleans all the nasty grime, grease and grizzle that sticks on your grill grate with ease and really gets in the nooks and crannies to clean every bit of your grill. Dip the brush in a cup of water and it makes a great steam cleaner for your grill.

The cleaning area of the brush head is quite large, so it takes less effort to clean a larger area. The brush does a great job of getting in between the grates and underneath. A few passes of this grill brush and your grill is ready for use.

What separates the Grill Brush Pro Grill Brush from our competition? It's simple really. It starts with the 3 brushes in 1 design. We specifically chose this design because it not only makes and incredibly sturdy and strong brush, but it allows for more surface area than other brushes and makes cleaning a grill simply effortless.

It's because of this that we're able to make a guarantee unlike any other you've seen for any other grill brush. We call it our better than money back guarantee and here it is... Try our grill brush for 60 days. If during that time you don't find that this is the best grill brush you've ever owned, or don't feel it was worth every penny of your investment today, we'll give you your full payment back, no questions asked.

You're protected by this guarantee whether you only used your brush once, or cleaned your grill everyday with it for the next two months! That's how confident we are you'll be happy and keep coming back for more!


MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW:

I love grilling season, if I could, I would grill just about every day! I use my grill at least 3 times a week, and that means I have a lot of cleaning to do. I like to clean my grill shortly after I'm done using it, and again right before I use it. I have been using this grill brush for a couple weeks, and I have to say I quite like this little baby!

It has a nice long handle, which makes it easier to reach the tight spaces on the grill. The 3 sections with the bristles really do a deep cleaning and get rid of any grilling residue. I don't have to put much effort into it for it to remove the yucky bits from my grill. I do wish that this had a solid scraper on the brush like my other grill brush has, that comes in handy at times. However that is my only "negative" issue with this brush. It is very solid, and heavy duty feeling. Some grill brushes feel very flimsy, and I'm worried they will break. This one seems very sturdy.

I definitely recommend this for home personal use, or give it as a gift to the grill master in your life!

Bella and Bear Makeup Brushes | Review

This is a 3 part review, where I will be sharing with you my thoughts on 3 different products from Bella and Bear. Enjoy!

"Cats Eyes" Eye Brush Set



This set of eye makeup brushes has every type of brush you need to create beautiful looks. This set comes with 5 full size brushes. This includes the  Iberian Lynx brush, which is used for your brows and lashes. The Leopard Cat brush, this one I found to be great for smudging out my liner, and for adding small amounts of color to add to a look. Next up is the Iromote brush which I use for adding color to my lid, and it works wonderfully with cream eye shadows! Then we have the Pampas Cat brush which is the perfect blending brush. And last but not least is the Black Footed Cat, which is a slanted fluffy brush that is great for working in corners, and on the brow bone area. 

I have been using all of these brushes over the past 2 weeks and I have had the chance to try them out with all sorts of different products. I have to say that I am quite pleased with this set! The brushes are easy to work with, and do exactly what they are suppose to do. 3 out of the 5 brushes in this set are very soft and easy on the skin. However 2 of them, the Pampas Cat brush, and the Leopard Cat brush are kinda scratchy, a little more rough feeling. I think that I would prefer different fibers to be used for these 2 brushes.  Cleaning these brushes was very simple, and I didn't have hardly any shedding. 


Iberian Lynx Brow Brush



This brush is fantastic for doing your brows. It is double ended, small slanted brush on one end, and on the other is a spoolie. The slanted part I like to use for brow wax, and brow powder. It is just the right size to define your brows and make them look flawless. I also have used this with my gel eyeliner on those days when I want a little bit of a thicker line. The spoolie end is great for smoothing out your brows after applying product. It takes away the harshness and gives a more natural look. You can also use this on your lashes to smooth out mascara and get rid of clumps. Like other Bella and Bear brushes, this one cleans easy, and I haven't had any shedding. 


Lynx Kabuki Foundation Brush



I only use liquid foundations, so a good brush is a must have for me. I like this kabuki brush, it does a great job at buffing out my foundation and giving me a nice natural look. It is a bit smaller than most kabuki brushes that I am used to, but I am easily getting adjusted. I like that I can get into corners and creases of my face with ease. I have also used this with powders, such as my blushes and bronzer and it works just as well. It washes very well, and I only experienced very minor shedding. 

Overall I love these Bella and Bear brushes! These are perfect for beginners or my fellow makeup addicts!

MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW:

This is such a neat lip product! When I first used it, I applied it on and the cream came out white. I was concerned at first, but then I ran my lips together, and before my eyes the cream turned pink, and my lips had a beautiful shimmery pink color to them! This isn't like a lip gloss, lip stick, or lip balm. It has none of those qualities. This is straight up lip color. Almost like a lip stain, but in cream form. The color is very complimenting to my skin tone, and I am quite pleased with how it looks on me. It wears for quite a long time before I have to reapply, and only a little came off while drinking. I like that this doesn't stick to any dry patches on my lips as well.

I read that this can be used on other parts of the body, so I tried it on my cheeks as a blush. It worked pretty good! Gives a nice flush of color.

Overall this is a great lip product, I quite like it!

MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW:

Let me start off by saying that I give this a full 5 star recommendation, and in fact if I could, I'd give it a 10 star rating because it is that good of a product!

Anyways, I have 2 cats, one which loves to be brushed and another which doesn't care for it too much. The one that likes to be brushed, gets brushed almost daily. So while she still sheds, her loose fur is removed often, so she didn't have too much of a use for this. However my other cat, the one who isn't a huge fan of being brushed desperately needed this. I like to keep my cats coat looking its best, and brushing them is a great way to do so. But because she isn't a fan, she doesn't get it done often. I knew she had a lot of loose fur because when I would pet her, or pick her up, I'd be covered in fur. So I tried this brush on her.... By far the best pet brush I have ever used thus far! It works so well! It not only gets rid of loose top coat, but also gets to their under coat. The amount of fur that was coming out of my cat was mind boggling! I could tell she was loving it because she would rub her head into the brush, so I figured getting rid of that loose fur must feel pretty good!

I absolutely love this brush, and cannot recommend it enough! My 2 cats give it a big 2 paws up rating as well!



Ultimate Smile Professional Teeth Whitening | Review



GET THE DETAILS:

Our best-seller, the Ultimate Smile Gold Kit, was designed for maximal usage and maximal results.

Truly Professional At-Home Whitening System, with In-Office Professional Results.


MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW:

At first I was a little unsure about how this whitening system would work for me. I used the recommended dosage, and it just had such a strong taste that I couldn't keep it on my teeth for more than 5 minutes. However the next few uses I played around with the amount of gel that I used. I finally found the right amount that covered all of my teeth, but wasn't to the point where it was spilling out and getting into my mouth.

The trays that they provide are nice, and they were easy to shape and mold to my teeth. I simply put them in some hot hot water, let them sit for a few seconds, then popped them in my mouth and bit down. They are very sturdy, and super easy to clean!

I have been using this for 3 weeks now, and I am starting to see some really nice results. I started noticing a minor change within the first 5 uses. Because I lowered the amount of gel I am using, I assume that I may have to use this a bit longer than normal to get full results, but that doesn't phase me at all. My teeth are getting whiter! One huge plus is that my teeth experience 0 sensitivity during or after treatments. I tend to be wary of teeth whitening treatments because my teeth are quite sensitive, but this gel doesn't bother my teeth at all!

Overall I am a big fan of this kit, and I am still using this product as we speak! Worth a buy!

GET THE DETAILS:

Soap is our passion. In fact, it’s our only product. We focus on premium quality soap aged up to 6 weeks and made fresh with pure ingredients that will stimulate your senses. The secret is our old-fashioned cold process soap making. Every product is made by hand, starting from stirring the recipe, cutting the bars and even packaging each individual item. Right away, you will notice the soft gentle lather that feels like lotion instead of rough sharp edges that feel scratchy or rough on your skin.
 
The cold process method of making soap helps enhance the fragrance. Many of the essential oils and fragrances provide the same properties used in aromatherapy and wellness programs. Feel the guilt free, sensual indulgence of our soap



t-family: inherit;">MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW:

I love soaps, and this one from Soap.Club was very pleasing. It has a nice light scent, nothing over powering in the least. However the scent doesn't last on your skin once you are done showering. Depending on your personal preference, you may either like or dislike this quality. The size of the soap bar is fairly generous, perfect for use in the shower. My skin tends to be dry, and can dry out very easily. I was happy to see that this soap kept my skin feeling hydrated, while at the same time leaving me squeaky clean. 

I love the fact that this soap is pretty basic. Nothing like the soaps you would buy at mass retailers that contain all kinds of chemicals and ingredients that you can't even pronounce. 

I think soaps from Soap.Club would be perfect for use for yourself, or as gifts for others! Soap.Club offers a vast selection of scents that are sure to please anyone!

GlassesShop.com - Marguerite Square Prescription Sunglasses | Review + Coupon Code

Sunglasses are a summer staple for just about everyone. Whether you are wearing them for practical reasons, or using them to finish off a outfit, everyone needs to have a couple good pairs of sunglasses around. If you are like me, and have to wear corrective lenses, then finding prescription sunglasses can be tricky. Many eyeglass centers are quite pricey when it comes to sunglasses, charging up to a couple hundred of dollars just for a basic pair. I have found a couple places online that offer affordable, great quality prescription sunglasses and one of them I'd like to share with you today, GlassesShop. They offer prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses, including prescription sunglasses.

I browsed through their selection of prescription sunglasses and found a pair that just screamed my name. They are the Marguerite Square- Black & White frames. Before these, I only had 2 styles of sunglasses in my collection, aviators and wayfarers. While I love those designs, I wanted something new, something a bit larger in size. These seemed to be perfect, and just what I was looking for.


Not too long after ordering, my glasses arrived in the mail. They came in a nice gold / orange sunglasses case, along with a lens cleaning cloth. I tried them on immediately, and loved them! The frames compliment my face shape very nicely, and are just the right size I was looking for. I didn't want anything too big where I would look like a fly! I have been wearing these ever since, I even took them on vacation with me to really test them out.


The frames are nice quality, and seem to be pretty sturdy, I haven't had any issues at all with them. The lenses are also perfect. GlassesShop made my lenses exactly to my prescription, and I can see out of them just as well as my daily wear eye glasses.


I absolutely love GlassesShop and their products. If you are looking for a pair of affordable, cheap glasses or sunglasses, I highly recommend checking them out!

Soluna Naturals Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil Softgels | Review





GET THE DETAILS:

Coconut oil has been given a bad reputation in the past because it contains 90% saturated fat. Most of the fatty acids in human diet are long-chain, but the medium-chain fatty acids in coconut oil are metabolized differently and much more efficiently, becoming available immediately as energy as well as offering additional health benefits including a boosted immune system, improved digestion, enhanced brain function, and stronger hair, skin, and nails.

Our bodies rapidly metabolizes Medium Chain Triglycerides in the liver immediate
ly, opposed to having to go through the lymphatic system, converting this into energy as fuel for muscle function or turned into ketone bodies as fuel for the brain. Because MCT's are burned so quickly and efficiently, it is very difficult for your body to store it as fat.

The medium chain triglycerides or medium chain fatty acids (MCFAs) allow the body to quickly convert coconut oil into energy. Coconut oil is used as a healthy way to boost energy levels when a pick-me-up is needed. Many athletes also use coconut oil to improve performance and endurance. oil is digested by enzymes, it also forms a monoglyceride called Monolaurin. Lauric Acid and Monolaurin have both been found to kill harmful pathogens like bacteria, viruses and fungi in the body resulting in a stronger immune system.


MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW:

I absolutely love coconut oil. It does so many wonderful things for my body! The biggest difference I notice when taking coconut oil is how faster my hair and nails grow. 

My nails are always breaking because I use my hands a lot with my job. Since I started taking 2 capsules of the Soluna Naturals Organic Coconut Oil a day, my nails have done a complete 360! My nails are longer, and very stronger. They look so much healthier. My hair is the same. It is growing so much faster, stronger and shiner. 

Coconut Oil for me is definitely a holy grail product! I absolutely love this stuff!
