Product Review: Soniclear skin cleansing system by Michael Todd! #Soniclear @michaeltoddtrueorganics @Michaeltoddskin


I was very excited to try out this new product from Michael Todd!  This is the SONICLEAR, it’s the world’s first Antimicrobial Sonic Cleansing System for your skin.  You can use it on your face AND your body!

Stain and odor causing bacteria can grow on brushes when skin cells, makeup and moisture combine with bacteria that cling to bristles between cleansings.    This product is powerful, yet gentle enough even for sensitive skin.  Soniclear micro-massages away dirt and impurities and then protects itself from microbial contamination.  It removes makeup 6x better and cleans 2x better than with hands alone.

In my package, it included the following items:

  • 1 Soniclear Device
  • 1 Facial Brush Head with Cover
  • 1 Body Brush Head with Cover
  • 1 Charging Stand
  • 1 Charging Cord


When I first opened it, I couldn’t wait to use it!  But, it was not fully charged, and the instructions said to make sure you fully charge it prior to using.  So I plugged it in and got it charging.  It’s easy to tell when it’s fully charged and when it’s not.   See how the bottom light is lit up?  That means it’s NOT charged.  As it gets more and more charged, the other two lights will also light up.   Once all three lights are lit, you are good to go.


One reason I was interested in trying this product, is because I’m extremely gentle on my skin.  I read that it was very gentle, but still cleaned your face really well.  I have never had an issue with acne, even when I was a teen.  I was blessed with great skin genes.  My mom has always had very smooth, soft skin, and so did my grandma, her whole life.   And they always looked way younger than their actual age.  I’m very glad that gene was passed down to me!  I remember years ago, I ran into an old teacher from high school, and she said I was “very well preserved”.  That still makes me laugh when I think about it.

I just turned 41 this year.  My employees at my old job were trying to guess my age… they all thought I was 27 or 28, and one even said “I’m not even guessing over 30″.  When I told them I was 41, they were floored.   Yes, I was blessed with great skin, but I take really good care of my skin, too.   I don’t ever “scrub” my face.  I gently wash my face with soap and water in my hands only. I do have dry skin on my forehead, especially in the winter for some reason (could it be this sub-zero, freezing, windy NY weather?) .   So I do sometimes put a moisturizer on my face.  But I’m very careful not to scrub it.  When I dry my face, I pat it dry, I don’t rub my face, ever.   And, I’m a non-smoker, which I also strongly believe that smoking affects your skin.

So I was very interested to try this product, because I knew it was also for your body, in case I didn’t like it for my face.  Because I’m very particular about my face.  I was a little afraid that this would have been a little too harsh for my face.  But, I was still going to try it.

After it was fully charged, I took this waterproof product into the shower with me, and got the scrubber all soapy and very carefully tried it on my face.  And you know what?  It was SO gentle on my face!! I just couldn’t believe it.  I was expecting it to feel like sandpaper for some reason.  But it was so soft!   It was not harsh on my face whatsoever.  I used it all over my face – my cheeks, chin, forehead, but just avoided the eyes like the instructions stated.  I then changed the brush heads and put the large brush head on it for my body.  And it was very gentle on my body as well.    There are 6 speeds on this too – 3 for face and 3 for body.  So you can get the right speed you need.

Overall, I was very impressed with this product.  I’ve been using it every day and I love it.  I’m still blown away that I have a product I feel is gentle enough to “scrub” my face with.   My face feels so soft and exfoliated after every shower.  I really never thought I would have liked this for my face, but I do!

I would highly recommend this product to anyone!   You can read more about this product on their website and get an instant 10% off coupon, and even enter to win a $100 gift card!

You can also purchase this on Amazon for just $150!

Product Review: Vital Essentials Freeze-Dried dog treats!


I was sent three bags of Vital Essentials Freeze-Dried treats for our dogs to review! Our little tribe of six dogs LOVE their treats, so I was excited for them to try these.  We received the Turkey Giblets, Beef Nibs and Rabbit Bites flavors to review.

As you can see, Molly always has a sense of urgency about her, and she just HAD to check them out… immediately.  I don’t know if they can smell treats through the packaging, but she was very interested in the Rabbit Bites first, so I opened that one first.


At first, we almost had a stand-off between Cody and Sammy.  They were staring at each other while I opened the bag, with little growls at each other.  Naughty dogs.  They only do that when they are REALLY excited about a food.


They tried them, and loved them!   Little Maxi typically has to smell his treats for about 5 minutes before he’ll actually eat it, but these he ate pretty quickly.  But he did give it the sniff test first.


Next we tried the Beef Nibs.  These were even more popular than the Rabbit Bites.  They were all over these!   Cody and Max quickly ate this handful up.


Maxi eats a lot slower than the other dogs, so he gets a little one-on-one time without the other dogs interfering.  He LOVED these treats.


I should really know better to turn my head for even one second… because Miss Molly had her head in the bag of Beef Nibs.


Lastly, we tried the Turkey Giblets.  I gave them a little sniff at first to get them excited.  And it worked.


Maxi ate these very quickly!  I think these were his favorites.




Haha!  I just love his little facial expressions when he eats sometimes.  He has a pretty strong underbite, and he chews with big bites, it’s absolutely adorable.


Are these Rabbit treats the equivalent to “catnip” for cats?  Maybe “dognip”?   Because Molly looks like she’s over the .08 limit.    Good thing she’s not driving.


And Noah would not stop eating the Rabbit Bites.  They were his favorites.  Clearly.


Here’s what I learned about these fantastic treats:

VE™ Vital Treats is Vital Essential’s newest product innovation. They start with fresh, high quality, RAW USDA meats, bones and whole organs. These provide the essential nutrition that dogs instinctively crave as well as being highly palatable to dogs.  They never use grains, preservatives, coloring or rendered by-product. Their products are made only from the “right stuff” to support overall health and vitality.

Their exclusive 48-hour “slow” freeze drying process locks in the vital nutrients without cooking the RAW meat. Fresh, life sustaining nutrients are not lost during this process. VE freeze-dried foods need NO refrigeration making them ideal to take anywhere you want to go with your dog.

If that doesn’t make you want to get your dogs some of these treats, I don’t know what will.  I LOVE that they have NO by-products.   Our dogs are not just pets, they are our furry, shedding, messy, destroying, but loving and adorable little family members that we love dearly.  Don’t they deserve the very best?

Wondering where can you buy these products?  Check their store locator here for a store near you!  I was happy to see there are at least 4 stores near me that carry these products!  That’s going to make some VERY happy dogs.

And then there’s this gem:


I don’t know about you, but every time I see this, I get the warm fuzzies.  Nothing makes me happier than seeing products made right here in the great USA, and “God Bless America!”.   God Bless America, indeed!

Product Review: Old Factory Candle Gift Set & ENTER TO WIN a set! (Ends 11/26)

I am a huge fan of soy candles.  So when I had the opportunity to review a Candle Gift Set from Old Factory, I was all over it.

They had lots of sets to choose from:


And while they all sounded fabulous (well, except for the High As a Kite one.. not so sure about that one), I ended up deciding on the Fall Harvest themed set.   I love fall scents all year round, but especially this time of year!   Pumpkin Spice, Cranberry and Autumn Leaves.  Sounded wonderful.

My candle gift set arrived quickly and gift wrapped with a little card!



I just love soy candles.  They burn so much more cleaner, they are so easy to clean up (just hot soap and water!) and I think they smell way better than paraffin wax.   Plus, they are better for the environment.

Here’s how my candles were perfectly packaged:



One thing I really loved is that they didn’t color their candles.  I love that they left them “pure” without the coloring, and that they use all cotton wicks with no lead.  I couldn’t wait to burn them!  I burned the Pumpkin Spice downstairs, and I burned the Autumn Leaves upstairs.


I quickly fell in love with all 3 scents.  I had never smelled an “Autumn Leaves” candle before, and it was amazing.  I don’t even know how to describe it.  What do leaves smell like?  I never really thought about it before, but they captured the smell wonderfully.  The Pumpkin Spice was Chris’s favorite.  We love the smell of pumpkin anything!  And this smelled like I had pumpkin pie or pumpkin bread baking in the oven.  Chris was slightly disappointed to come home from work to find out that the smell was not me baking something delicious, but just a candle ;)

The Cranberry also smelled really nice too, and fit the Fall Harvest theme perfectly.  The candles were only 2 oz. each, so they only lasted a few days, and left us wanting more!

If you are considering buying these, I would definitely recommend it.  These are very high quality candles and the fragrance fills up the entire room.  These would also make great gifts for the candle lover on your list.  You can buy them on Amazon here.

My only dilemma is what scents to get next?  I’m thinking the Winter Wonderland!  Hot Cocoa?  Yes, please!

What is your favorite scent?  You might want to think about that… because the very generous people over at Old Factory Candles are giving away a set to one of my readers!!   Yes, that means one of YOU will win a candle gift set, valued at $30.99!

This giveaway will end at 11:59pm EST on 11/26/14!  Valid to USA residents only, and must be over 18 to enter. Just fill out the giveaway form below, to enter to win!  Good luck to everyone!

Make money selling Pink Zebra products!

I’m always looking for new ways to make some extra money.  As you probably are already aware, I run a business out of my home (since ’97), I also do craft shows and sell on Etsy as well.  And as you know, I blog!   And this isn’t my only blog.  Yeah, I have a lot going on.  But, that’s that way I like it.  I hate being bored.  I always have to have a new project to work on.

I found out about Pink Zebra last year at a craft show I did.  There was a vendor selling Pink Zebra products.  And I fell in love.  Their products are so unique, and they are great sellers.  Their table at the show was always full of people.  And you could smell their things as soon as you walked in the room.  Their scents small amazing.   Their most popular product is their “Sprinkles”.  They are little tiny sprinkles of soft soy that you can either melt in a warmer, or pour into a jar with a wick and burn it that way. Love, love, love the Sprinkles.

I had actually forgotten about Pink Zebra, because earlier this year I took on a full time job in retail management.  Well, after being robbed at knifepoint and realizing what a horrible company I was working for, I quit 6 months later.   So here I am, working from home again, still running my home business, but starting to feel slightly bored.  I needed something to spark that fire under me again.

My BF was excited to do craft shows with me again, so I had that to look forward to, and quickly booked almost every Saturday for October through the end of the year.   A couple weeks ago I was at a craft show and saw another Pink Zebra vendor.  After the show, we came home and that got me thinking.   First, I started doing research on all types of Direct Sales companies.   I couldn’t believe how many DS companies had such bad ratings, complaints against them, and just negative reviews.

And then I looked into Pink Zebra.  The more I read about them, the more interested I became, and had to keep finding out more.  I read blog posts and reviews on them, and it seemed like everywhere I turned, people were raving about PZ.  I posted some general questions on some sites, and was overwhelmed with how much everyone loved being a PZ consultant.

Then I looked into the pricing.  You can start your own PZ business for as little as $99.  You get the website free for 30 days, and after that, it’s just $9.95 a month.  Customers can place orders right through your site, and the product can ship directly to them.  You don’ t HAVE to even keep any product on hand if you plan on just doing the online thing.  But since I do shows (and let’s face it, I’m a sucker for candles), so I did want some on hand.

I signed up on a Sunday night, and received my kit on Wednesday, and that’s even including the Veteran’s Day holiday in there.   Here’s what I received in my kit (I got the Deluxe kit, I wanted that suitcase and purse BAD!)

It comes with everything you need to start selling!

If you are wondering how you can sell your Pink Zebra products, here’s a list of ways I came up with:

  • Craft Shows & Craft Sales  I am booked for almost every Saturday through the end of the year.  Most people are already familiar with the brand.  So in lots of cases, they just want to replenish the wax they have already consumed.
  • Website  Pink Zebra gives you a website with all of their products already on it.  This makes it super easy for customers to just place their orders through your site.  You do get the first 30 days free, and after that, it’s a nominal fee of $9.95 per month to run the website.  You don’t need to know any programming, the website is built for you.  You just sign into your ZebraNet (back office) and watch your sales come in!
  • Home Parties Home parties are very popular, and a great way to introduce a room full of people to your products.  This is also a great way to get huge orders at once, which could also result in free products, large commissions, and lots of repeat customers.
  • Social Media Take advantage of your social media skills and sell sell sell! You have lots of friends on your social media sites (and if you don’t, get working on that! You don’t HAVE to personally know all your “friends”).
