LF Garcinia Cambogia Supreme 80% HCA {Product Review}

Hi again. Here is my official New Years post! *blows trumpet* Happy New Year! With the new year lots of people will be trying to lose weight, be happier, and loads of other things. These are admirable things to try to achieve, but you have to make these decisions every day and not just at the beginning of the year.

 The weight loss craze is... well... crazy. For about a year or so I've heard about this Garcinia Cambogia stuff and I think I even tried a couple of kinds. I never think trying to lose weight with supplements alone is a good idea, especially if it's something that is harmful to your body, but I figured these were plant based and were supposed to be supplemental and not restrict what you eat or anything. So I decided to try a couple of companies that offered to let me review. Because more than one accepted me, I gave this one to my mother to try. This stuff is supposed to start working pretty quickly, and my mom has taken it for about two weeks or so now.

 According to the brand, Life and Food, this contains no stimulants or additives and is the pure plant. It's just a vegetable capsule mixing Garcinia Cambogia fruit rind with calcium and potassium for added absorption. I think it's supposed to help with your mood too.

 As far as she could tell, the biggest difference was Mom felt her appetite being suppressed. She got full quicker. I don't know if that's any sort of sign or what. But she didn't feel any "thinner' and her weight stayed about the same. Maybe it isn't a fast working thing, maybe you have to take it longer than two weeks, but the stuff didn't really do what was hoped for. But since we weren't expecting /too/ much with this experiment, we aren't so disappointed. What can replace being healthy anyway? But just for fun, I shall be experimenting with a couple of other brands to see if we can actually find one that works for us. I've also heard that you have to pair it with something, but I'm not sure what that something is. Perhaps I will learn for my next review. If you would like to try this stuff out for yourself, here is a link. It might work better for you than us. It worked for LOTS of people, but for some reason... not so much here. But we will try again. 

**EDIT** If you would like to try this product yourself, the company has offered to send one as part of a giveaway. This will be a short giveaway that ends tomorrow evening, so enter fast!

Lemon zester/grater {Product Review}

 Hi girls! Me again with another review. Yep. This one, and then right aboutMidnight tomorrow's post will be up. Hehe.
This evening I'm reviewing a really neat lemon zester/grater from Chef Proven.

My mom loves this thing.

 At some point all classy ladies are going to need some good cooking utensils... You might even use them now. So here's a nice combined product you can use for both zesting and grating.
Here tis.

 It is a long metallic zester/grater that has been voted the #1 useful kitchen tool for grating and zesting. According to them, it is the most popular kitchen tool on the market. It works great for both zesting lemons and oranges and whatnot and is also a wonderful grater.

 My mother is the main cook in our family so she did a lot of the testing for me (I took the pictures.) She initially used it for grating and loved that half of it. She grated carrots and remarked on the fineness of the grate and how good that would be for my grandmother. She also loves how easily it grates.

Here's part of a zested lemon.
 The blade is stainless steel (and sharp), has a nice cover sleeve when not in use, and has a lifetime money back guarantee. It is also crafted well. Great. My mom also told me to say that it cleans really easy and that is a plus in her book. My mother is probably one of the best cooks I know so I definitely trust her judgement on this thing. If she likes it, I know it's a success.
 It works for whatever you want to zest/grate including lemons, carrots, etc. and it costs less than $13 on Amazon, which I think is pretty cool. You can check it out and read more reviews here.

So if you or your mother or anyone you know needs a nice gift or
whatnot in this department, I recommend this one. :)

Softy {Product Review}

 Hey gals! Tonight I'm reviewing another product from Softy sanitizing wipes. I know a lot of you might have younger siblings or you just need some practical wipes. So this review might be the one for you. I know wipes might sound like a weird thing to review, but trust me... they come in handy.
So here's how big the container is. Also I'm tired.
So... Softy sent me a giant cylinder of wipes. I was surprised and pleased at the enormity. Especially when compared to those tiny little wipe containers they sell in the store. They contained a whopping 150 count of wipes. Which is pretty cool. But would they be super liquidy or too dry or too thin? The wipes turned out to be nice and thick for wipes with a perfect amount of dampness and they worked pretty wonderfully. They also smelled good. I like the way the packaging is done. When we traveled out of state for Christmas, I stuck the wipes in between the seats, anticipating their need.

 I'm pretty sure we actually used them at some point in the car but for some reason my memory is currently failing me. But when there was an accident involving my one-year-old nephew and him taking off his diaper, well... let's just say those wipes came in real handy. My mom even got some great uses out of them. She used them for wiping hands, wiping kids, wiping counters... you name it. They have been quite useful. And since there is such a large amount, we're still experiencing their usefulness.

 These wipes are unique in the fact that they are safe to use anywhere, even on little kids and are alcohol free. They're also infused with aloe and vitamin c. They have a germ-killing rate of 99.9 % and are quality with their soft application. I really like these wipes and think you will too. If you need a bunch of wipes these retail for about $15 on Amazon. Since they're so nice I think it's worth it. Also, there's a money back guaranty if the wipes don't stay moist. So that's cool.

 Thank you Softy wipes and Tomoson for letting me give my honest opinion with this review.

Review: Amari Vitamin C Serum with Organic and Natural Ingredients

Hey everyone! It's Christmas break for this college student. WHOO! Anyway, I'm reviewing Amari Vitamin C Serum with Organic and Natural Ingredients! I don't have pictures  ready to upload but they are coming!

 Vitamin C has an endless list of benefits. Here are some of them...

 Colds – Doesn't cure the cold but can reduce symptoms and help.

Stroke – Vitamin C reduces risk of having a stroke.

Heart Disease – Vitamin C may lower the risk of heart disease.

Osteoarthritis – Vitamin C helps combat this.

Asthma – Vitamin C helps.

Cataracts – Apparently increased blood levels of vitamin C are associated with decreased risk of cataracts.

Gout – Helps with this.

Skin Aging – Vitamin C helps keep your skin from aging, wrinkles, acne, etc.

Stress – Vitamin C is helpful for those whose immune systems are weakened due to stress.

 As you can see, Vitamin C is really really good for you. While I feel like I can't give you a total comprehensive review of this product because I think it's benefits are more obvious over time, here is the product description.

Description: Combination of the most powerful herbal and organic ingredients along with 20% Vitamin C provide up to eight-fold antioxidant protection, 96% percent reduction of sunburn cells, and prevents new formation of free radicals in skin exposed to sun. Vitamin C Suspended in a concentrated base of pure vegan hyaluronic acid to plump skin cells and protect and restore. This serum is a concentrated delivery system for the highest form of active, bio-available Vitamin C for beautiful skin.

- Hydrated and Moisturized skin
- Lighter and brighter complexion
- Reduced photo damage and scarring
- Boost healing properties of skin
- Improved collagen synthesis
- Reduced Inflammation

  This stuff is a really nice oil, and it smells pretty nice too. I haven't noticed any obvious effects of it yet, but I'm sure it is helping because it's a nice vitamin c combination. My mom, however, has been using it, and she put it on a spot on her skin that was darkening.  She said it started to lighten it up right away and has been really helping her skin. So though I haven't seen the obvious effects personally, I'm sure they are coming. Also, the ingredients are all organic and natural so that's a nice plus! If you would like to try out this nice product, you can purchase it here.
