My Review: 

I recently had the chance to review a tube of  180 Cosmetics Body Shaping Solution.  I am always looking for ways to keep my skin looking young and healthy.  After having kids, my whole body could use all the help it can get with firming since I don't exercise like I should.  The instructions say to apply all over the entire body in small circles once or twice daily.  The first time I used it, I could feel my skin tighten on my legs.  It is very moisturizing and makes my skin very soft and silky.  I typically apply it twice a day and have used it for a couple weeks now.  I have definitely seen results, especially on the backs of my legs!  My husband even asked me what I have been doing different.  If he has noticed, then I know it works.  It also smells great!  My skin is very sensitive to many products but I have had no problems with this one.  I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who wants firmer, healthier skin.  You can purchase it HERE on Amazon.

Make Amazing Chocolate Souffle's In Fifteen Minutes With Gourmet Souffle (Review)

Gourmet Souffle has the first Instant Chocolate Souffle Kit that allows you to make amazing souffle's in literally fifteen minutes!  You simply add water, mix, bake, add your favorite toppings, and eat.

My Review:

I was recently chosen to host a Gourmet Souffle party in my home and share this product with my friends and family.  I'm not sure if I have ever had a souffle before so I wasn't sure what to expect.  After looking at the website for recommended toppings, I talked to my guests about what they would like.  They all said chocolate, caramel, and pecans, which is exactly what I was thinking.  Before the party, I made a batch of four to try with my family.  They turned out great so I knew the party would be a success.  When the guests arrived, I showed them how simple it was to make the souffle's.  You just add water and mix with a mixer for a few minutes.  Then you distribute the mixture into the included ramekins and bake.  When they are done, top with whatever you like and enjoy!
I highly recommend the turtle souffle!

Some of my guests said they were expecting these to be like cupcakes but they are not.  They have more like a thick pudding texture.  They are best when served immediately out of the oven while warm.

Overall, I would definitely recommend Gourmet Souffle to anyone who wants a quick, great tasting dessert.  You can purchase the kit HERE.  Be sure to check them out on Facebook & Twitter as well.

Namefully Has Custom Name Jewelry In a Variety of Sizes and Colors (Review)

 Namefully offers numerous types of custom jewelry in a variety of materials, colors, and sizes.  The original Carrie necklace design, is now in acrylic! This necklace can be made with any name in any of 15 colors. Chain length can be one of 5 sizes: 14", 16", 18", 20", 22".

My Review:

I recently had the chance to review a Custom Acrylic Carrie Necklace in my choice of color and size.  I chose the 16" chain with my daughter, Savanna's name in silver mirror.  It arrived in a cute little mesh bag.

The first necklace I received was broken during shipping.  The company was very quick to ship out a replacement.  When it arrived, the chain had broke from the necklace.  I fixed this myself with a pair of pliers but the links bent very easily.  I think my daughter would break it in no time so I am going to replace the chain with a higher quality chain.  I love the name part of the necklace and would recommend it to anyone who wants a custom jewelry piece.  Check out the website or follow them on Facebook or Twitter.

Get Whiter Teeth Fast With Dr. Song Home Professional Kit (Review)

Dr. Song Medical is a medical cosmetic laboratory that originally manufactured products for professionals, doctors, and medical facilities. Dr Song Medical products are made in the USA and is FDA compliant and a provider of professional products.

About the item:
Dr. Song Home Professional Teeth Whitening 44% Carbamide Peroxide Kit is a maximum strength take home teeth whitening kit, the same ones used by dentists, but done in the convenience of your own home! Since this kit contains professional maximum strength whitening gel, it is not recommended for use if you have sensitive teeth.

The kit includes:
• 8 large syringes of whitening gel - good for 50 applications
• 1 large remineralization gel syringe
• gel applicator brush - for easy application of whitening gel
• LED Blue Light Accelerator - for acceleration of whitening process
• moldable teeth trays

If sensitivity occurs, a Remineralization Kit is available for purchase separately.  It includes 8 large syringes of gel.

My Review:

I recently had the chance to review a  Dr. Song Home Professional Teeth Whitening 44% Carbamide Peroxide Kit & a
Remineralization Kit.  I am always looking for ways to keep my teeth nice and white but when I read that this product is nor recommended for sensitive teeth, I knew it wouldn't be for me.  My son was more than happy to test it out.  He has very nice teeth but they are not very white.
 It took a little time to set up the trays to fit and read the instructions.  Then we painted the gel on his teeth and put the trays over top.  Last, we placed the light in his mouth for fifteen minutes.  He could have left it on longer but he was tired of having it in his mouth.  After he rinsed his mouth, I could see a big difference!  I really couldn't believe the results he got with one use.
After 1st use

He said his teeth were not sensitive at that point but after using the product a couple more times, he started feeling a little sensitivity.  He started using the Remineralization Gel and hasn't had any more problems.  I can say that I would honestly recommend this product to anyone who wants whiter teeth fast.  I have seen the results right before my eyes.  You can purchase the kit on Amazon HERE

Hydrate and Improve Your Hair With Arvazallia Argan Oil Treatment and Mask (Review & Contest)

Arvazallia's slogan is "Beauty Maximized" because they create products that are designed to not only maximize your beauty but to maximize your confidence and spirit as well. This professional series hair treatment product line is one of the highest rated and best selling salon quality argan oil hair treatment lines.

My Review:

I recently had the chance to review two items of my choice from the Arvazallia Argan Oil line.  I chose the Premium Argan Oil Hair Treatment and the Hydrating Argan Oil Mask.  As a huge fan of Argan Oil, I must say these are some of the best I have tried.  As many of you know from previous posts, my hair has been bleached, colored black, bleached again, permed, straightened....and the list goes on.  You name it, I've done it.  My hair has been ruined to a point that I thought I would never save it unless I shaved it all off.  I had finally cut a few inches off and started deep conditioning treatments when these products arrived.

I started out by using the Hydrating Argan Oil Mask every few days as a conditioner.  I left it in for five minutes then rinsed.  While my hair is still damp everyday, I take a small amount of the Argan Oil Hair Treatment and run it through my hair and let it dry.  I pay special attention to the ends.  My hair does not feel oily or look greasy like some oils do.  It makes my hair soft and silky without frizz.  I would definitely recommend these products to anyone who wants to make their hair look and feel healthier.  Check out the website for all of their amazing products.

 Arvazallia is hosting a video contest in which you can win some major prizes!  There's over $6000 worth in prizes up for grabs.  You can also vote on other videos once every day for a chance to win prizes as well!
         Video submissions for the contest began on November 17th, but because of the holiday season, they have extended out the submission deadline to January 11th, 2015.  Digital Voting on contest entries will be extended out until January 25th, 2015.  For all the details check out the Challenge HERE.

Take Care of Pet Hare With Epica Slicker Brush (Review)

The Epica's pivoting head makes the grooming experience more comfortable and efficient for both you and your dog. And with retractable pins, clean-up's a cinch too! Retractable Pins Make Brush Cleaning Easy
Simply push the retractor button, and the pin bed is left bare for you to shake off the hair. It's so fast and easy, you can even do it in mid-groom while keeping one hand on your dog.
Pivoting Head Adjusts to Your Pet's Curves
Reaching all your pet's sides and angles can be difficult with an ordinary brush. Epica came up with a brilliant solution: instead of bending and straining your wrist, you adjust the angle of the brush head. Now even brushing his belly is a breeze!
Durable Stainless Steel with Non-Slip Grip
Sturdily constructed for long use, the Epica features flexible, non-rusting stainless steel pins that gently but thoroughly remove tangles and dead hair build-up in the undercoat. Non-slip gripper nodes on the handle keep you completely in control.

My Review:

I recently had the chance to review an Epica Self-Cleaning Slicker Brush.  We have two Yellow Labs that shed like crazy all summer long so I am excited to try this.  I have to keep them outside or constantly keep brushing them or my hardwood floors look like I have white shaggy carpet on them!  Even after brushing them with an under brush, I am still constantly cleaning my floors!  After using Epica, I hardly see any hair in my house.  It is colder and they have their winter coat right now but I know it has made a difference.  They love being brushed with this brush unlike the others.  It usually takes two people to brush my youngest dog, Ranger,  because he hates it so much.  Now he lays here and enjoys it...until I try to get his picture.

Since the head of the brush swivels, I can get under his belly and around his whole body in no time.

It even captures the finest hairs.  My cat loves it too.

When the brush is ready to be cleaned out, one press with my thumb releases the hair.  I only need one hand! 

 The hair drops in one clump.  I love this brush and would definitely recommend it to any pet owner.  You can purchase it HERE on Amazon.

My Review:
I recently had the chance to review four colors of my choice from the new SinfulColors Holiday 2014 collection.  I chose Pine Away, Decadent, Hottie, & Endless Blue.  When I buy nail polish, I always buy them in sets of two because all of my nails can't be the same color.  My ring finger has to be different but still has to match well with the others.  I knew the Hottie & Endless Blue would go great together as shown below...
The Hottie is a little too sheer for me to wear alone but looks great over top of the darker color.  These are one coat (except the ring finger).

I thought the Pine Away & Decadent would make a great Christmas theme but they didn't look good together.  I had my daughter polish my toes with Decadent.

It took four coats to get the sparkles to be thick enough to see well.  This might make a good top coat over another color but I would not recommend it by itself.

Finally, I polished my daughter's nails with the Pine Away.

This is an awesome color with the glitter made into it.  It only took one coat to make her nails stand out boldly and festive.  The polishes all went on smoothly and dried very quickly.  I would definitely buy SinfulColors again and would recommend them to anyone looking for great nail color.  You can only find these holiday colors at Walgreen's for a limited time.  Check out SinfulColors on  Twitter or Facebook.
