Automatic Soap Dispenser from Ohuhu! #Dispenser #Review



dispenser4

We used to have an auto soap dispenser in our bathroom, and then a few years ago, it just died on us.  We replaced it with one we bought from a local home goods store, but it only lasted a few days and we returned it.  We couldn’t find a quality one, so we’ve been using a manual pump dispenser since.   To be honest, we eventually just forgot to keep shopping for one.

So I was very happy to get the chance to review this automatic soap dispenser from Ohuhu!

It arrived very quickly.  It’s a very nice silver and black color, it looks like stainless steel but is actually plastic.  It takes 4 AA batteries in the bottom, and it comes with a wall mount.  We won’t be mounting it on the wall though, we like it on the bathroom counter.  It’s also very easy to fill with soap, just slid the lid off, and unscrew the plastic cap and fill.

And it works great!  It’s extremely quiet when it’s dispensing soap, and gives you the perfect amount each time.

6-in-1 Stylus Pen is 6 tools in one! #styluspen #Review



stylus1

My phone is attached me to pretty much 24/7.  I use it for everything!  It’s so much easier to use when I have a stylus.  I’ve been using really cheap I bought on Amazon a while back, and while they do the job, they are very flimsy, they break easily, and the rubber tip has broken off of several of them.

I was very happy to get the chance to review a 6-in-1 Stylus pen by Extreme.

First, you need to know that I’m a pen fanatic.  I love writing (yes, in an actual notebook) and I can only write with a decent pen.  If a pen has a cap missing, I simply cannot use it.  It throws the balance all off and I just can’t write the way I like to with it.  I also can’t write with pens that are cheaply made, and leave globs of ink on the paper.

So for various reasons, I was looking forward to trying out this Stylus/Pen.

stylus2

As soon as I received it, I couldn’t wait to try it out.  I was very pleasantly surprised at the quality of it, right off the bat.  This was not a cheaply made pen.  It was a sturdy, heavy pen.  I immediately started writing things with it and there were no globs of ink when I was writing, and it just felt like a great pen.

But it’s not just a pen!  This pen has 6 functions.  And they are:

  1. It’s a pen, and you can even buy refillable ink cartridges for it.
  2. It’s a stylus.
  3. It’s a level.
  4. It has a 4-inch and 10-cm ruler on it.
  5. It has a flat head screwdriver.
  6. It has a Phillip’s head screwdriver.

What other pen has all those features?

stylus3

And everything works great on it!  The ruler has started to rub off at the very right, but it’s such a minor thing.  This has become my only stylus that I use now.  I use it when working on social media, I use it to write & read emails, I even play my word games with it.  This pen/stylus does not leave my side.

I also do a lot of craft/vendor shows on the weekends, and I accept credit cards at these shows, and my customers use this stylus to “sign” their name on my smartphone.  I have to keep an eye on them so they don’t walk away with my favorite new pen/stylus!

Thermo Lunch Box keeps your food hot/cold for up to 6 hours! #Review #ThermoLunchBox



thermo3

I love products that are perfect for lunch boxes!  Remember when you had to use little plastic baggies for everything for everything in your lunch boxes?  Well those days are over!

These Thermo Lunch Boxes are functional and sylish, all at the same time!  They come in four colors – green, blue, pink and yellow.    They all have 4 gray clips on the outside, one on each side, to make sure you get a good airtight seal all the way around.  They have a stainless steel interior.  These Thermo Lunch Boxes will keep your hot foods hot for 4-5 hours, or your cold food cold for 4-6 hours!

thermo1

The more you pack in them, the better results (hot or cold) you will get. I put Chris’s fruit in there for his lunches.  In the photo below, I placed a HUGE orange, cut up, in it. He didn’t take his lunch until 3pm that day, and he said it was still cold!  It kept his orange cold for  9 hours!

thermo2

You can only wash it by hand (hot soapy washcloth is recommended) and it is not dishwasher safe.  You cannot immerse it in water (not sure why, just going by the directions it came with).  And it is also not microwavable.

You can buy these on Amazon right now for just $12.99 with free Prime shipping!

Cordless Engraving Pen Product #Review #rmcassociatespen



engraving1

I’ve never owned an engraving pen before, so I was really excited to try this one out.  There have been so many things around the house I have wanted engraved over the years, but thought engraving pens were expensive.

Well this engraving pen is not expensive at all.  You can get it on Amazon right now for just $15.95 with free Prime shipping!  But how does it work, right?  To my surprise, it worked pretty well!  I put Chris’s name on a couple of his stainless steel Contigo thermoses and it only took a few seconds.  I also put my name on some rubbermaid-type containers.  How many times have you given rubbermaids to someone and never got them back? I bet if your name is on them, you will start getting them back!

engraving2

The pen takes two AA batteries, and is so simple to use.  You just hold it like a pen, with your thumb on the little button, and start writing on whatever you want to engrave.  It works on glass, ceramic, plastic and more!   Just think of all the things you can engrave with this!  The possibilities are endless.

Check out my quick video here, to see it in action:

See how easy it is to use?  What would you engrave with this pen?

Centrum MultiGummies #review & enter to win a 70-ct bottle! (Ends 8/13/15)



centrum1

When I was little, my mom gave me those little Flintstones vitamins, do you remember them?  They tasted like candy, and I looked real forward to my daily piece of candy that came out of the medicine cabinet.

Then I grew up.  And had to start taking adult vitamins.

Well, I have a problem taking pills of any type.  I gag on pills.  They have to be really teeny tiny for me to be able to take them.  I have to really force myself to take medicine when it’s something I really NEED, let alone just for vitamins, which I’ve never considered a necessity.

But I’m in my 40’s now and everyone keeps telling me how I need to get my daily dose of vitamins.  It became a reality when my doctor even told me I need to take vitamins.  I’ve always been anemic, and living in NY, we are really Vitamin D deficient, especially in the winter months.  So I tried taking vitamins – I really did.  But I can’t hack the pills.

Centrum to the rescue!  Who says you have to be a kid to enjoy taking your vitamins? Centrum now makes Vitamin Gummies!!  Oh my goodness, they taste like little gummy bears.  But, you can only take 2 a day.  So don’t go eating the whole container or anything.  But they are yummy, AND they give you the vitamins you need!

They come in three flavors – Cherry, Berry and Orange.  Molly photobombed my photo below.  I think she thought they were for her, since it seems that most everything that comes in for review is for the dogs, lol!

Softsoap Limited Edition bodywashes for summer! #Review



softsoap5

 

A few weeks ago, Softsoap sent me their three newest bodywashes in their Limited Edition summer scents!  We received Fuji Waves, Bali Bliss, and Tahitian Glow.  They could not be more perfect for summer!

As always, I opened them all right up as soon as they arrived so I could smell their new scents.  And they were all amazing, as usual!

Fuji Waves is a mix of cucumber & melon.  Bali Bliss is a mix of coconut & lime, and Tahitian Glow is a mix of citrus and pineapple.

We have both used all three of them, but can you tell which ones are our favorites?

 

softsoap4

We both liked the Bali Bliss, but Chris’s favorite is the Fuji Waves, and my favorite is the Tahitian Glow.  I just LOVE the citrus & pineapple scent.  You can really smell the citrus – you can really smell the grapefruit, and it’s a great wake-me-up scent first thing in the morning.  My second favorite is Chris’s favorite – the Fuji Waves.  It has a hint of watermelon in it, which is a favorite scent of mine in anything.

Not only do they smell amazing, they always leave our skin feeling super clean, soft and moisturized. Softsoap is a favorite in our bathroom and in our kitchen – we even use Softsoap hand soap in our dispensers.

I would like to think that summer is never going to end, but it will.  And these three scents are a Limited Edition, so they will be coming to an end too!  So if you want to try them, now’s your chance!  Check them out at your local Walmart.

Which scent do you want to try the most?

ISA Professional Flat Iron Hair Straightener #Review #isaprofessional



isa2

When I was really young, I had beautiful, silky hair.  I begged my mom to let me get my hair permed when I was little (hey, perms were “in” in the 80’s).  Finally, after a lot of begging, she let me get my hair permed.  I went with my grandma to her salon and got my hair permed.  I left with very curly hair, just like I wanted.  Little did I know, this changed my hair forever.  The lady who permed my hair, either left it in too long, or used the wrong thing on my hair, because my hair was never silky soft again.  I remember years later my mom taking me to a salon to figure out what was going on with my hair – and we were told there was nothing that could be done.  My hair was permanently damaged.  So ever since, I have extremely thick, wavy, frizzy, out-of-control hair.   It’s something I’ve learned to manage, but it’s not fun.

If I let my hair air dry, I look like I stuck my finger in a light socket.  And if I dry it with the hair dryer, it’s even worse.  So my two options are to spray it with spray gel and let it air dry (and then my hair turns “crispy”), or otherwise I have to straighten my hair.  I choose to straighten my hair – every. single. day.  It’s become a life necessity.

I can’t use cheap flat irons.  The ones that stores like Walmart sell I can’t use at all.  They do not phase my hair whatsoever.  So I can only use quality flat irons.  They have to have ceramic plates and have to heat up to 450º.

Two years ago I bought a really nice flat iron that I loved, but within a year, the plates cracked.   I went and bought the same one again, and a year later – yep, the plates cracked again.  It was still usable, but when I’d use it, my hair would get caught in the cracked plates and it would yank out some of my hair.  Not fun.

So I’ve been shopping around for a new flat iron, and when I had the opportunity to review this flat iron from ISA Professionals, I jumped on it!

isa3

It features red ceramic plates, a full swivel cord, a SUPER long cord, which is awesome, and a digital readout.

This flat iron heats up to 450º, and it heats up extremely quickly, which is great!   I hate having to wait to my flat iron to heat up.  I was very happy with how well it straightened my hair.  It left my hair not only pin straight, but shiny and soft as well.  And, it has a curved edge, so you can also use it to curl your hair.  I don’t ever use a curling iron anymore. If I want curls, I use my flat iron.

isa4

There is one feature I do not like though, I have to be honest.  The buttons where you turn it on/off and set the heat setting, is on the outside of the flat iron – and it’s exactly where you place your hands when you are straightening your hair.  So when you are using it, you constantly press the buttons, change the temperature by accident, or accidentally turn it off.  There IS a solution to this though.  If you press the power button twice, it will lock the settings, so when you are using the flat iron, you won’t mess up any of your settings, or turn it off accidentally.  And when you want to unlock it, just press power twice again.  And when you want to turn the flat iron off, just press down the power button for 2 seconds and it will shut off.   And if you have it locked, even though you won’t mess up any of your settings, it will still “beep” if you press one of the buttons.  This is something I’m just going to have to get used to, but the flat iron works so great on my hair, it really does make it just a small problem in the grand scheme of things.

This also features an automatic shut-off after 90 minutes.  So you’re never left wondering and worrying if you left the flat iron on.

Want to see it in action?  Check out my video:

Overall, this is an excellent flat iron.  I’m very happy with it, and it’s making my frizzy hair look smooth and shiny again!   You can purchase this from ISA Professionals, or on Amazon!    This flat iron retails for $299.99, but you can purchase it right now for just $145!  That’s a 52% savings!
