Barbeque BBQ Brush Review

Cleaning the BBQ is always a nasty job. When I came across this new brush design I was not expecting to be impressed. We have an infrared grill so the grates aren’t the same as a traditional grill, which makes it harder to clean. However, I was super excited when we got down into the nitty gritty with this brush. It worked! Our process is to bring the grates into the sink in the garage and clean them there, so with this new brush it got down into the cracks and made cleaning a snap! bbq-brush

Advanced Face Serum by SCS with Hyaluronic Acid

 Having never heard of hyaluronic acid before, I was curious to try it out. I looked it up on WebMD just be sure that it was safe and WebMD said “Some people apply hyaluronic acid to the skin for healing wounds, burns, skin ulcers, and as a moisturizer. There is also a lot of interest in using hyaluronic acid to prevent the effects of aging. In fact, hyaluronic acid has been promoted as a “fountain of youth.” However, there is no evidence to support the claim that taking it by mouth or applying it to the skin can prevent changes associated with aging.” I was happy to try it even if it didn’t live up to the claims.

The package says “100% pure hhyaluronicyaluronic acid serum gently binds formidable amounts of moisture to the skin and its layers while preserving your skins most important youthful characteristics such as suppleness, elasticity and tone. This serum nourishes, soothes and moisturizes your skin, helping you maintain a beautiful youthful glow while protecting your skin”. This brand is also produced without parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, synthetic dyes, petrochemicals, phthalates, GMOLs. So it seems that it’s pretty pure and since it’s made in the USA I felt good about the quality.

The instructions are to apply several drops to clean, washed skin and gently massage into the skin. Allow product to completely absorb into skin before applying makeup. Use twice a day in the morning and evening.

The serum has no discernable fragrance. It has a slightly smooth feel, but not oily.  The serum absorbs quickly so I’ll keep using it and see what the results are.

Anaiti Luminous Cream

anaitiWow! This stuff is amazing! When opening the bottle for the first time, a refreshing citrus scent wafts your way. It absorbs quickly and smoothly. I felt a tingling on my face so hopefully that means it’s doing something amazing! It doesn’t make my skin feel oily or coated with extra stuff. I have a couple dark spots that are already showing some lightening. We’ll see how it goes after a few weeks. So far, definitely amazing!

Eye Mask for Sleeping

eye maskGot this eye mask to test. The idea is that in the summer time when it’s light later, and it’s time for sleep that you can block the light and get more sleep.  I have a couple other eye masks from several years ago.  They are cotton.  This eye mask is made from a silky material — probably polyester.  So it feels nice and silky.  That is good and bad — it’s smooth on your skin, but then can also come off easier.  If you are the type of sleeper who stays in one spot the whole night, this will be perfect for you.  If you move around a lot, this will probably come off.

Stainless Steel Coffee Mug

steel mugBeautiful steel mug! Love the look of the mug part. The handle seems to be designed funny and I would actually prefer the mug without the handle. Very drinkable and nice insulation. Bummer that you can’t reheat drinks in the microwave, but that’s the price you pay for a super stylish mug 🙂 It keeps your coffee warm while you get your day started.  The mug is one solid piece so you don’t have to worry about cleaning the little bits.
