Momma Bear-Baby Gender Test

Some people decide to have children and some people get surprised by a bundle of joy. Nothing compares to using a home pregnancy test and getting a postive result. There is another test though that might come close to the hpt. This test is called a baby gender test. These tests are suppose to tell you whether you are having a boy or a girl. They say just for fun on them but I have heard of a few women who swear by them and say that they have always been correct at predicting exactly what gender of baby you will have. Pregnancy takes a long time and a lot of patience. There are many stresses that come along with being pregnant so maybe this is what women need to relieve the stress for a little while. One day maybe you are bored and pregnant and you decide you want to know what your going to have so you go to Amazon and click here and up pops the Momma Bear baby gender test. If you want to have a fun moment and just try out something silly you order it. The reviews on the Amazon page I have seen are from people who obviously didn't read that this is for entertainment purposes only and have given it bad reviews. I personally knew that it was just for fun and that it would have a 50/50 chance of being right. No products like these are going to be a for sure thing so I hope no one runs out and gets everything for whatever gender it said it was going to be. With that being said, let's go on to the product itself.



When I first got it in the mail before I opened it, I wasn't sure what sort of thing to expect. The company sent it straight to me so I didn't really have the chance to go to the Amazon page and check it out like I usually do while I am ordering something. I liked the idea that the whole thing was a big surprise to me.

When I got the package and opened it up, I have to say that my first reaction and the reaction that I am still having with this, is that it looks like a kid's science fair project and I had a real problem taking it seriously. It comes with two tests in it, so you could take them both and see if the results are the same, or you could share it with another woman who is pregnant. The set includes, a "cup" which looks like one of those cups for liquid medicine, to pee in, 2 syringes that will extract the urine from the cup, 2 balloons-purely for celebrating purposes, 2 test tubes-they come with what I originally thought was glitter on the inside but from what I have read and from really looking at them, they are some sort of crystals, a card that explains the results, coupon, and of course instructions.

It is fairly self explainatory, you go in the cup, extract the urine with a syringe (of course they have no needles on them), then you smack the test tube a few times onto a counter or other hard surface to get most of the crystals down to the bottom (they will settle while being shipped so it is not possible to get it all down to the bottom without sticking something into the test tube, which I don't recommend because it may mess up your results), then you open the test tube (a lot harder then it looks and not just because I have arthritis. I had to sit down my syringe and then wriggle the to off and even had to use my fingers to pry the last little bit apart so that it would come off!) and you squirt the urine into the tube. Make sure you have filled up almost the whole cup or at least a good bit of it because I had to fill the syringe 2 or 3 times to get it to the fill line on the test tube. My cup was full and when I was done I had a little less then half a cup. Anyway, once you get it up to the clearly marked fill line, put the cap back on and make sure it is tight and then shake it until all the crystals have dissolved. Once you have all that accomplished it should look be either green or purple. Green is suppose to be for a boy and purple for a girl.This is my result:


In my case I didn't have to shake it because it was already green when I got done putting all the urine in the tube, but I did anyway just to make sure that it wasn't going to change on me and give me a surprise. I then let it sit for a second just to make doubly sure that it was going to stay green and took out the card with the results. I then found out that it said I was going to have a boy. I have to be honest though, I do not know right now if I am even pregnant. All signs point to the fact that I am and with these signs and symptoms, people have been telling me that they think I am having a boy, if I am indeed pregnant. This is what my husband and I want as well but there was no way that the test could be influenced in anyway so I feel safe in saying that the test came up with the result all on its own with a little help from my urine. If I am pregnant though I will still make sure to find out what the dr and the ultrasound say because like I said before this test is just for fun and only a 50% chance of picking the right gender.

I can really see how a pregnant woman would enjoy this product. It really gave me a few smiles from the unveiling of the product to the unveiling of the results. It is easy to use and had very clear instructions that come with it so no one could really do this wrong in my opinion. With that said, women's hormones are out of control while they are pregnant and I can see something like this causing stress overload if a woman got a result that she was not happy with or if she really took it seriously. If you know you are having a girl, the doctor says girl and the ultrasound says girl (eventhough both can be wrong from time to time) and the test says you are having a boy, don't assume that the drs were wrong. Just remind your self that it is all for fun and sometimes it comes out right and sometimes it comes out wrong. No need to stress just enjoy the few minutes it takes to do this test, because while you are doing them you are care free and the stresses slide away while you are focused on something else for a little bit.

I say if you want to have a bit of fun and try to ease your mind for a little bit, this product is for you! It's not a for sure thing, but its not going to hurt you either, unless you have your heart set on one or the other and the test tells you otherwise! I think this would be fun for doing at a baby shower to see what the result would be for the guest of honor or just for a friend that believes in this sort of thing. You can never go wrong if you can put a smile on the face of a pregnant woman!

NuElle Anti Cellulite Concentrate



Your body is one of the things in your life that you can not control. I don't like to see anything weird on my legs especially in shorts or a dress. I never had this problem until later on in life and I hate it now. I was searching for something that would help and this review fell into my lap.

NuElle contains a cocktail or 25 well known ingredients to help with your flubber and imperfections. It firms and tightens on the surface of your skin while detoxifying the inside to help relax and get rid of the skin problems. Since it is natural and organic, you don't have to worry about what you are putting on and absorbing into your body.

It comes with some awesome instructions and makes it easy to use. You need to put this on 2 hours after you eat or and hour before you eat because there can't be any food in your system or it won't work. Doing this two hours a day should have you seeing results within the first few months.

The first time I put this on I did as the instructions said and I waited for the "sauna" feeling that says accompanies the product in the areas that you rub the product on. I rubbed in circular motions all over my stomach, thighs, and butt. I then went and cooked dinner and sat around and the sauna feeling never happened. The net time I did it right before a work out and I did start to feel the warm feeling towards the middle of the work out. So I am not sure if it didn't work the first time but I am fairly positive that it did work the net time I tried it. So after that I kept doing it that way and really started to feel like the product was working the way it should.

I haven't been using it long enough to see any real results yet but when I do I will make another blog post or edit this one and let everyone know. One thing though, it didn't make me sticky, was easy to put on, and did make my skin feel softer in those areas so far.

If you want to find out more about this product or the other things they have for sale go to Amazon and check it out here, don't just take my word for it!

PureSol sponge



After the last experience with a sponge, I was concerned that the same thing would happen with this one. At first sight though I had a better feeling about it then I did the last sponge at first sight. It is so much better looking then the other sponge and it even came with a handy string so that it could be hung up in the shower and not just lay somewhere. That way of course it dries a lot faster and makes me think that there would be less of a chance to have mold grow on it. Of course anything that is wet and dry constantly has the chance of mold, so always keep it in a warm place so that it will dry quickly.

I really like the simple instructions that they give as well. It really takes the guess work out of using this product.

"Directions
1. Soak the sponge for several minutes in water until it is fully soft. 2. Massage gently in a circular motion on your face with or without your favorite cleanser. Should you however chose to use an additional cleanser, you can apply a fraction of your usual amount, as the sponge will generate more bubbles. 3. After use, rinse the sponge and press it gently and press it with two hands. 4. Hang the sponge on the enclosed hook in a well-ventilated space. We recommend to replace the sponge every 2-3 months. After use, the sponge can be composted! To extend the life of your pureSOL Konjac Sponge we recommend keeping it in refrigerator if you live in a hot & humid climate. The sponge can also be sterilized every couple of weeks by boiling it in water or popping it in the microwave for a couple minutes!

While the sponge is soft which is a good thing, it is also a bad thing as well because there is no way it is rough enough to exfoliate your skin. You can use this instead of using a wash cloth to wash your face and make it feel softer if that is what you like. I did enjoy using it instead of a wash cloth for a few months though. Everything has its ups and downs and this is no different. Just have to weigh out the possibilities and see what you think of the product yourself. To check it out on Amazon and see the diverse set of reviews and find out more about the product go here and you will find out everything you need to know.

Oleavine Beauty Sponge




When it comes to your face, I am not sure if you are like me or not but you are weary about what you put on it and what you use on it. Some people just use their hands and other people use a wash cloth or beauty supplies like sponges. I wasn't sure what a sponge would feel like so I wasn't sure about using this product.

One good thing about this sponge is that it is 100% natural and eco friendly. It is suppose to be anti aging as well which would be awesome but not something that you can really confirm in such a short amount of time. You can also use it for 2-3 months without having to replace it, if you like the sponge and the benefits.

Now to how the sponge worked. When you first start using it, it kind of feels like styrofoam on your face. Like you are using a cup to scrub your face. It says you can use a non foaming cleanser with it but once you put it on the sponge it soaks it up and is pretty much like you never put it on there in the first place. So it is pretty pointless to waste your cleanser on it so just use soap.

Once you put it under water though it starts to feel like a regular kitchen sponge. Which is pretty weird when you think about it but I suppose if they can clean dishes, they can clean your face as well. The downside to this product though is when it is fully wet and ready to be used, it feels like jello when you put it on your face and start to use it, it starts to feel like jello. It wiggles around all weird and not just on your face, it wiggles in your hands as well.

Now while the product isn't really any better then a normal wash cloth, it will take off your makeup and not make your face hurt. It will also make your face feel softer after using. Although you won't have the feel of the top layer of skin come off because it is too soft to really scrub anything, it will make you softer if that is what you are into.

Bottom line is I would just use a regular wash cloth from now on but you may have a different experience with it and love it.

Bully Sticks--Best For My Pets



When it comes to my dog I will do just about anything to keep her happy and healthy. She loves treats especially ones that she can chew on for awhile. I was giving her treats that she guarded more then chewed and then she would dangerously swallow big pieces instead of chewing them. She got to where she was getting sick a lot and I was not happy about that at all. She is a part of the family and no one wants anyone in their family to be hurt or sick. My heart went out to her every day but it was the only "treat" that she would eat. I am sure she could have went off of the treats and been just fine but she may have went on to chewing other things.

I remember one time we were moving and one of my wood tables hit the side of the wall and a chunk came out of the table. This chunk also had a nail sticking out of it. Later we found her chewing on something and it was that chunk. I was so scared that she had swallowed some pieces of wood and that they would splinter coming out or that she would swallow it whole with the nail and everything. We gave her the first chew snack/treat that day and she hasn't went back to chewing on things that she isn't suppose to.

I got her when she was about 6 weeks old. She never got the chance to be around other dogs so she was and still is more like a human then a dog. Willow is scared of everything. If a walmart sack or other plastic page makes a sound she jumps and runs. I guess I should add that she is not a small dog. She is a beagle/basset hound/austrailan shepard mix. So she is beautiful but she is getting kind of fat because the kids feed her whenever she acts hungry. But she refuses to accept change, just like a human. I have had toys sit around for months and she will smell them every day and run and then one day she will take off with one of them and have so much fun. Treats like rawhides are the same way. I just threw some out that have been hanging around since we got her because she simply is too scared of them to even get around them, won't even smell them or be curious of them.

So I knew when I got these to try out that it may be an up hill battle to get her to even try them.  When the package came I let her sniff it out and she seemed interested and not scared like normal. I took one out and she took it right away and went off to her own little space to check it out and start chewing on it. Sometime in the net half an hour she was guarding it so well that she was on top of it and the kids thought that it was gone. So going back to their over feeding issues they decided to give her another one. Only to see her drag the first one out right after wards. For awhile she chewed on one and kept the other one either under her or under her paw. Then the kids wanted to see what she thought and she stuck them both in her mouth and looked at them like she knew they weren't going to try and take them. At this time I had company that was going to be stopping by so I tried to get at the least the one under her paw away from her and she stuck them both in her mouth again so I stopped trying and just let her be in the bedroom. The package says to keep an eye on them so I had my kids go in every few minutes and make sure she was ok and every time she was still chewing away.

I love the fact that she likes these and I also love the fact that these are so good for her! They are all natural, chemical free, low in fat and high in protein. Everything that I could ask for in a treat for her especially with the overweight problem. Which she doesn't help by sleeping all day like a cat, Another great benefit of these is they provide stress relief and are a comfort to her. The kids like to take all of her toys whether they are playing with her or just being themselves and she knows that this is one thing that they will not take from her. She seems to be calmer about getting treats now and it provides something for her attention to be on for a while which is nice as well.

These do not have an odor so they won't make your hands or your dog's breath smell funky and they are also really good for oral health. They are sourced from free range cattle so the fact that there is no smell off of them makes me smile! I would expect some sort of smell! Plus I have never seen a stain on my floor or carpet from these like I had previously had problems with, with other treats. I can not stress the fact enough that these are all natural and chemical/dye free which is why they don't leave pesky spots for me to clean up!

My dog just loves these and she is so picky. I tink your dog would love them too which is why I am recommending them to all of my readers who have pets as part of the family. If you want to check out the link, other reviews, and/or place an order on Amazon just go here and you will find out everything else you need to know about this awesome product. Until net time I will be sitting here in peace and quiet until the kids get home watching Willow chew on her Bully Stick...they really are Best For My Pet!

Bellafab Hyaluronic Acid Serum



I can't deny that I am getting older. My skin just isn't hanging and looking the way that it used to. There comes a time in every woman's life that she realizes that she needs a little bit of help. I think that time for me came when I turned thirty. When you are in your 20's you feel like you can't be touched and that your skin will always look amazing. You are so blinded by your age that you don't stop to see what your lifestyle has done to your face and skin.

Once you finally do hit the age where you take a hard look at yourself in the mirror, you realize that you have had your rose shades on a little too long. By then some addiction has taken ahold of your face and skin. Whether it be smoking, drinking, etc or if you are just one of those people who likes to be out in the sun a lot, something you have done growing up will cause your skin to change. Hack just growing older in itself will make your skin do some crazy things and look some crazy ways. When I finally faced up to this fact I realized that it wasn't too late to do something about it, if I started trying to find something to help now!

Bellafab, doesn't look like any other serum that I have seen or tried in the past. It comes in an awesome container and doesn't use the usual "medicine" dropper as most of the other serums use. This meant that it wasn't some oil, it had to be a gel or cream which in my opinion are so much better then the oil serums.


I have to admit that I am in love with the layout of this bottle. It is plain but also cool enough that people using your bathroom will stop and wonder just what the heck it is! The best part is, that what it is is so plain to see and in big letters that can be read quickly and easily by just about anyone. The instructions are a bit smaller but very easy to understand.

You always hear me talk about my arthritis, so products have to be easy to open and easy to use. This opened very easily and it comes out nicely as well. I was so ready to try this serum out that I almost forgot the first step which is wash your face and pat it dry with a towel! After doing that I got some product out on my finger (also another benefit to it not being an oil!) I then put dots all over my face and from there I used those dots to spread it around on those particular parts of my face. A little goes a long way with this serum. It dried very quickly and as it dried my face got..hard. It was kind of weird to move it and smile and have expression on my face. I don't know what botox feels like but if I had to guess I would say it feels like this product felt.

Don't get me wrong, I am not complaining at all because it was a feeling that I never got with any other serum that I have tried. I felt like it was really working! My face was glowing and it felt fantastic after using it just one time! Every time after, I got the same results and let me tell you, if it is like botox, then I can see why people get addicted to botox. You just get this feeling of being young again when you skin was tight and didn't hang or sag and it just makes you feel and look so much younger then you did before you put it on!

I really enjoy using this product and I will keep using it. It hides well under my make up and I still have the glow to my face even after putting make up on which in turn means I put less on because I don't have so much to compensate for because my skin looks amazing! Don't take my word for it though, check out this product on Amazon, just go here and check out the product and some of the other reviews!

Adovia Sulfer Soap



As ladies, we think we need some scrub or pads to deal with the acne on our faces. Nothing seems to work as well as you hoped it would and it gets more frustrating everyday you see the acne on your face. I wouldn't of thought that a simple soap could help with the acne problem I figured I would have to go big or go home and shell out for Proactiv. That was until I tried Adovia Sulfer Soap.

I will admit that I didn't think that it would work at all for my acne. I figured that it would clog me up even more and cause even more acne then what I had before I tried it out. I mean let's face it, most products that claim to help with acne, ends up going in the trash because they simply don't. To me that is just throwing money in the trash so I was desperate for a solution and would try anything.

When I first got this product, I took it out of the box and it seemed like a simple bar of soap. The only thing that seemed special about it was the fact that it was yellow instead of the white that I am use to from other soaps. I ran it under water and got a huge lather, believe me you don't have to run it under there long to get a huge amount of lather and a little goes a long way with this soap. Anyway, I got it rubbed on my face, and it felt like normal soap so again I didn't have any thoughts that it would work. I rinsed it off though and my face felt so smooth! It says it works for acne, blackheads, and oily skin so I knew for sure that one of the three claims was working right away.

I continued to use it for the next week and my face stayed baby soft for that week. My nose didn't have the usual amount of blackheads either, and the real kicker was, my acne that was there at the start of the week was almost all gone. I went from a nonbeliever to a believer in a little over a week. You wouldn't think a soap would work but it actually did!

For the real test though, since it says for the face AND body, I decided to use it on my husband's back. He has a real problem with acne on his back because of all the sweating he does at work. So I used it on him for a few days and the acne is starting to fade on his back as well and I haven't seen any new acne pop up on him. I just lather his back up while he is in the shower, have him leave it on there for just a few minutes and then he washes it off. His skin is already soft (I don't know how haha) so I couldn't say if he benefited from the smoothness but he definitely benefited from getting help with his oily skin, since I haven't seen any new acne pop up.

If this product can help his crazy acne back then it can help you too! I really like it as well, it has helped me to keep the acne at bay and make me feel better about my skin. Another great product from Adovia. I am in love with this company, they make good quality products that really work!!

Insta Natural Deep Cleansing Facial Oil



We all know what it is like to want to impress our significant other. If you are like me you only wear makeup a few times a week if that. Just to make yourself feel pretty and to get a little extra attention from the one you love. You spend all the added time to put it all on, even if you are running late. Sometimes I hate how long it takes me to get it perfect. Since I don't wear it as much I am not as good at putting it on as I probably should be at 31 but we won't discuss that haha. Anyway it takes me probably about half an hour maybe a little more depending on whether it is a good day and I remember exactly what I am doing or not. But the problem with putting on all this makeup, is taking it off at the end of the day. It seems like you can get it on everything, shirts, coats, sleeves etc. Yet when it comes the time that you actually want it off it seems like it is cemented to your face and would take a sand blaster to get it off.

I don't know about you but I want something that will take the make up off quickly and not hurt my face or dry it out. I have tried the wipes and they are okay but they always end up drying out my skin or making me feel like I have a sticky face. Insta Natural was not that way though. You can use it with a wash cloth or even with just cotton balls and it works the same with both. I don't wear much make up so it didn't take much of the Insta Natural to get it all off of my face. I tried it with cotton balls the first day and that took a little bit to get it all off of my face but I liked how soft the cotton balls felt while they were going across my face. They didn't feel rough or harsh in anyway and didn't leave my face in any sort of pain or feeling like I took the top layer of skin with the make up. It didn't make me feel like I was sticky and my face even felt refreshed afterwards. The second day I used a normal wash cloth and it did work a lot faster then the cotton ball since a wash cloth is a lot bigger but it felt like my face was raw from the scrubbing. The third time I tried it, I used a wash cloth from back when my kids were little. It didn't have the roughness to it. It worked quickly as well but this time I didn't feel raw. I got all cleaned up in a record amount of time, I didn't feel raw or sticky, and my face felt better and almost had a glow to it. I would say if you are going to use a product like this to use or get some baby wash cloths as those would be the softest and the best and fastest way.

I really enjoyed trying out this product and getting to experiment with the different ways that it could be used. The best part was that it actually worked better for me then I thought it would and it cut down the time it takes me to get my make up off. If you want to try something different besides soap and water or make up wipes, I recommend you trying this product. If you would like to check it out on Amazon go here and it will tell you everything else you need to know about this awesome product and the best part is you get a huge bottle for a very low price!

Skintimate Mandarin Burst

Everyone enjoys having smooth legs and I am no different. I got to try Skintimate Mandarin Burst through Crowdtap and Skintimate for free just for my honest review. I was excited to get to try it because Skintimate is in my opinion the best shaving cream around.

 It comes in a nice bright container and it is easy to see what brand it is and what smell it comes in. I love how they like to use fruits to show how it could smell. I love the top and how easy it is to make it come out. It comes out in pink instead of just the weird foam. I "sprayed" it to my legs and when I rubbed it in, then it turned white and almost like a foam. I liked how it changed colors once I rubbed it in. That was pretty awesome.
When I started shaving, I noticed that my razor kept clogging and the cream did not fully come off my legs. after every stroke I had to clean my razor off because running the water over the razor didn't help. It seemed to cement the hair into my razor and I wasn't too happy about that. It did come off fairly easy though so that was a plus.


 This is how the gel looks when you apply it to your legs. Just a little bit goes a long way with Skintimate.

 When you rub it in, It goes to the "foam" like stuff that you see here. It rubs in well and quickly and turns white when you rub it in. It covers well also and smells really nice as you are shaving.

My legs after shaving with Skintimate. Very smooth and smelling good. After an hour I could still my legs and I really enjoyed it. I probably wouldn't shave right before going somewhere because it is not really a sexy sort of smell. More like going to the grocery store smell but still a good smell. It did help me from getting cut and my legs are so silky smooth. I will continue to use the bottle and if I like it I will see about getting more if the price is right!

I recommend Skintimate as I use it as well. If I could give some advice though, I would use disposable razors instead of a good expensive one so that it won't get ruined. Yes it does wipe off but there are still hairs and gel stuck in my razor after wiping and washing for about half an hour. I did get this for free but I always say what I feel and give my honest opinion about everything I try out and review.

Dr. Song Vitamin C Serum Giveaway

Recently I got to review Dr. Song through Tomoson. You can find the full review here. Dr. Song is a unique serum unlike any I have tried out before. It doesn't have the weird fruity smell as the other serums I have tried and it really has started to work! Now I get the chance to let one of you try it out! I am excited about being able to give this away. I love doing giveaways and a beauty product seems like it would be so much fun to giveaway! I hope that whoever wins likes the product and if you don't win you can always find it on Amazon and read some of the other reviews and grab it for yourself. Good luck everyone!

Dr. Song Vitamin C Serum



By now it is no surprise to anyone that I have gotten to try my fair share of serums. So far all the serum have been different in some ways and same in others. Some serums are runny and some are like a lotion. This serum has a different texture all together. I am not really sure how to explain it besides watered down glue texture maybe? It goes on very well I am not knocking how it goes on, I just haven't used a serum that was like before.

This product doesn't really have a smell so I can't say anything bad about that. Many of the serums I have tried have had an orange/fruity smell and I don't really want my face smelling that way. So for this to not have a smell I was really happy about that.

The product like I said goes on very well, it leaves you greasy only for a few minutes but after that it is a really nice feeling. I waited for a little bit and then I put my makeup on like normal and forgot that I had even put the serum on my face. My makeup didn't smear or have any weird effects from going on over the serum.

The product itself comes in a cute little blue bottle. I very much enjoy the look of it and the color. It is easy to see who made it and what it is for. The packaging is a bit plainer but I would expect for the bottle itself to be more glitzy and showy then the packaging anyway because that is what people have on their shelves, that is what other people see and makes them interested enough to ask you what it is. One thing I didn't like, is the fact that there are no instructions in or on the box or bottle. Just a card that tells you to go on line and look up the instructions. What if you are buying this for someone else and that person doesn't have a computer?? You then have the obligation of going online and finding and writing down the instructions for the person. I realize that this is probably just a way to get people onto their site but still with the time it took to make the cards up they could have made up simple instructions and then said something about "for full instructions see the site" or something to that affect.

After using this for a few weeks I did notice that familiar glow and I have to say my skin is a lot softer then it was before I started using Dr. Song. So no matter how many things I can gripe about, I can't deny that it does really seem to be working! If something works for you keep trying it, because the next thing you try probably won't. With so many different products on the market that claim to do things they don't really do it is hard to find one that really does. Get yourself a serum, this one is nice, and a good price. Pick it up on Amazon ! I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Pure Shea Butter-Adovia

When it comes to smells, I have always loved the smell of Shea Butter. Whether it is in lotions or my favorite shampoos, I just love to use. The way it makes you smell is better then anything else you could ever use in my opinion. I will purposely buy something even if it is more expensive simply because of the words shea butter on the package.

I was really happy when I got picked to review shea butter. I was unaware of the form it would come in and I should have done my homework so I would have understood exactly what I would be getting. I was thinking it would be spreadable sort of like butter but I wasn't prepared for the big block that I received. Just like normal Adovia filled the container to the top which was very nice, but I just couldn't understand how I was suppose to use the Shea butter.

When I went online to find out about it I heard different opinions on how to use it, so I chose the one that I thought would be the easiest for me. I got some out and put it in a container and I put it in the microwave for about 5 seconds. It was hot when I got it out so remember always let it cool before grabbing any container or using any product straight from the microwave. I let it sit for a few minutes and it wasn't runny it was just slightly less hard then the rest of the container of shea butter.

I decided to use it on my stretch marks. Any woman who has had a baby knows the struggle of stretch marks. Those bad boys are hard to get rid of, yes they are a symbol of having your children but they are also ugly and I can't wait for them to go away! So I put them on my belly all around where the stretch marks were and I left y shirt up for a little while so it would dry because the container says it won't make you greasy. I finally got tired of waiting and put my shirt down. Hours later I was still greasy. I didn't like that at all. Maybe if it actually smelled like shea butter, but it didn't really smell like anything. I don't know what they put in the lotions and shampoos to make shea butter smell the way it does but it obviously has an additive because pure shea butter doesn't smell anything like what I am use to.

The next night, I decided to try and use it right out of the container because I thought maybe I was so greasy the night before because I used the microwave. This method took me about 10 times as long to do because you just can't get a good amount on you in a short amount of time. I wasn't greasy but I didn't really feel like I had any on my body either. So after that I went back to the batch that had been microwaved and even though it made me greasy (sometimes I was still greasy when I got in the shower the next day) I knew that it was applied and continuing to work.

I have experienced a slight fading of my stretch marks so I have to say that this product is doing what it says it will/can do. So far I am happy with the results I have gotten and I will keep using it. I will take being a little greasy over having these crappy stretch marks any day of the week! Just like every other thing from Adovia, I love this product and was very excited to have the chance to review it. I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com.

Branch Chain Amino Acids



Nowadays there are so many pills out there that you can take to better yourself and/or your health. They will help you to get many of the proteins you need in your life. You can also get these proteins from meat and dairy.

I am not one to love taking pills but if they are something that might help me then I will gladly try them out. I wasn't sure what to expect from these pills. I reviewed them and what they do before taking them and I felt quite secure in their worth and what they would do for me.

These pills were very easy for me to take and the taste wasn't as bad as I assumed it would be from just looking inside the bottle. The smell of the pills is what I have become use to in my time of reviewing different pills through Tomoson.

These pills seem to give me more energy so I try and take them before I am about to work out. The added energy helps me to work out longer and better then any other pill I have tried. I have noticed they also seem to make me not as hungry after I take them so they almost work as a meal substitute. I am trying hard to lose weight and I think that these will help my journey.

If you need help on your journey and think pills may help you then try these out you can get them on Amazon and you get your money's worth.

Listerine Naturals mouthwash

As a member of Crowdtap I get to try out some awesome things for free just for my review. No matter what, I will always give an honest review.

There are so many mouthwashes in the market today and they all include things that we don't know what they are. With everything turning to the "green" natural side because of people afraid of what they are putting in their bodies, it was only a matter of time before mouth wash followed suit. Personally I could go either way. If a company makes a product and uses it themselves and gives it to their families then I feel it is ok for me. They would never put their own families in jeopardy just to sell a product, at the same time going green seems more responsible in this day and age. But with the word natural and green you can also see a bigger price tag. I feel that if more compaines could go green and keep the price down then more people would follow suit and buy the products.




This mouthwash looks and tastes the same as normal mouth washes. After I swished I expected to have the same taste in my mouth for awhile after spitting it out, you know the taste that assures you it is still working. When you breathe in and just know you are covered. I didn't get this taste for more then a few minutes after I swished. It would come and go though for a little while. It must have worked though because no one complained and said I had horrendous breath or anything.

Seems to me that most "green" products are this way. You never really know if they actually work or not. To me I would rather have a product that I know actually works then something that may or may not be better for my body. Bottom line this mouth wash has a good taste, nice appearance and it apparantely works unless everyone was just being nice and not telling me that my breath stank. If you are into being greeen, check this out. You may have to pay a little bit more but if you are already a green person then you are use to this by now.
