HSI Professional Flat Iron Review

This is the best flat iron I have used.  Even better that I received it as a gift.  Easy to hold doesn't feel awkward.  Easy to maneuver.  I love the box it came in.  The temperature is just right and easy to adjust.

Many flat irons I have tried were pulling my hair and I ended up with split ends.  This HSI flat iron does not pull.  Without a lot of heat, I get a good straightening.  Highly recommended by friends I can say they were so right. This is the best iron I've used for my hair.

For 6 months I have been natural trying to repair damaged hair.  I was afraid to use a flat iron again that I wanted to have straight hair without chemicals.  It's a relief that I don't have to worry about using a flat iron with HSI products.

I plan to use HSI heat protectant products and can't wait until they arrive.

I don't think you will be disappointed if you buy this product.  Its a well known recommended flat irong.

New York Biology Arabica Coffee Scrub

New York Biology Arabica Coffee Scrub

I used this scrub for two weeks on my body.  I was amazed at how it smelled like some of the best coffee I have ever drunk.   My mother kept sniffing the jar saying "wow."  When I first used the scrub on my body I was nervous because other scrubs seemed so rough but that was not the case with this product.  After rinsing off my body my skin felt very smooth.  

Since I like using scrubs my only hope is that the company has a larger size to order.  Like other products I have used by this company, there was no disappointment.  When you get to my age it is important to find products that work otherwise you end up wasting money.

New York Biology gets it and understands the needs of its customers.

I plan on continuing to us this product and at the request of my mom will be getting her a jar she can call her own.

My Daily Regimen

I used the scrub daily #NewYorkBiology in the shower on my body mixing it with pure coconut oil. It did not take much to get the job done and the scrub was not messy like some I have used.

Daily use is necessary because once the cold weather comes my skin gets dry and scaly and lotion only helps so much.  With the combined regimen of using the scrub in the morning and then follow up with lotion I get through the day without feeling dry and my hands don't feel rough.

When the Summer season comes I will be able to use the scrub three times a week as recommended.

If you like coffee you will love the way this aroma sticks with your memory and helps you have an uplifting day.

If you love scrubs you will love the way your skin feels smooth and soft after using.  For those who have not used a scrub before you are in for a treat.

If you like to use only organic products this product is the one to chose.

As you can see from the picture the jar comes packed to the top with product.

New York Biology Eye Gel ~ Review

I used this product for two weeks. I don't get enough sleep due to my work. The bags under my eyes looked bad. After using this eye gel my puffiness under my eye went down and my skin tone began to even out. 

My regimen was to use the gel in the morning and in the evening before bed. I do recommend at my age there are not too many products that seem to work and those that do are so expensive. I loved the silver box it looked expensive. 

As you can see in the picture once you take the clear top off there is a white cover. You just gently push that cover down and an adequate amount of gel comes out for you to use. 

It's enough to cover your whole face if you like. The gel has a faint scent like aloe you almost miss it no worries about my allergies acting up. You can purchase the Gel on Amazon Click Here



My skin color has a more even tone it has lightened up. Not easy to tell from the photo
but the skin under my neck firmed up and I wasn't expecting that.

I would use this product again and look forward to seeing what changes happen over the next few weeks

I always give an unbiased opinion when I do a review. This product was given to me for free to review.  I will be purchasing this product for continued use. 

Take care until next review

Easy Home Basal Thermometer Review

I was pleased when I opened my delivery to see that the thermometer came in a nice handy storage case.  The actual thermometer I felt could be a little smaller at the top. I found it to be a little awkward to handle.  The light I found helpful. I was able to check my readings without waking up hubby by turning on the lamp.  I am a journal writer so I kept my data in my journal but for others Easy Home provides a a well organized and easy to use chart.

What I did have difficult with is setting the date and clock. I followed the direction over and over but each time I clicked the bottom on top of the thermometer I could not change settings because the thermometer would turn off.  So unfortunately I could not set an alarm nor did I hear any beeps to let me know if I had reached a higher or lower reading than was normal based on the instructions in the guide.   Still my readings were accurate and helpful.  By using the thermometer daily I used my readings to assess with other criteria we are analyzing.  I would recommend this product the difficulties I had seemed to be user driven and I will be contacting the manufacturer for assistance. We plan to continue to use.

I have to disclaim that I was given a discount in return for my unbiased View and opinion of this product this in no way changes my opinion

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all up hill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don't you quit!
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure has turned about,
When they might have won had they stuck it out.
Don't give up though the pace seems slow,
You may succeed with another blow!
Often the goal is nearer than It seems to a faint and faltering one,
Often the struggler has given up
When they might have captured the victor's cup.
And they learned too late, when the night slipped down,
How close they were to the golden crown.
Success is failure turned inside out,
The silver tint to the clouds of doubt.
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far.
So stick to the task when you're hardest hit,
It's when things seem the worst, that you must not quit!
