MAANGE Shell (Mermaid Inspired) Makeup Brushes Review (Amazon)



I have a short and sweet, mini review for you!



I was sent three travel sized makeup brushes for review. They are perfect for a mermaid or anyone that dreams they are a mermaid! They are very comfortable to hold due to the grippy texture of the shell-like mold. The synthetic bristles are soft. I like that they are packed densely and have shed only 0-2 hairs per brush. They are a luminous fuchsia and green and very cute! These can apply various makeup products. I like them but to be honest, will not use them as my daily brushes. I like a rounded makeup brush and an actual handle. However, for travel, these little beauties will do wonderfully. They easily fit into a small makeup bag. You can find these on Amazon.

Eczema Cream - Anti Itch Treatment by Insta Natural (Review)



We are currently loving this eczema skin cream by InstaNatural! My husband has been using it on his dry and cracked knuckles and fingers. My 7-year-old daughter uses it on her chin where she has been having redness and dry, irritated skin. She mentions that it stings her a little but we find that it is working. When she uses it, the skin looks so much better. Unfortunately, her irritation keeps coming back due to her constantly rubbing the area on her chin. It has become a habit that she does not notice. The cream works well to clear it up. It is gentle and has great ingredients in it. I have been very satisfied with this company. They have consistently fantastic products. This lotion/cream was sent to me for review. I have no complaints with this product and I recommend it. I love the oatmeal and shea butter in it. This lotion has skin soothing and healing ingredients that calm skin. I do not find that this is overly greasy. We only need to use a small amount of this lotion. I think the flip top lid is great. 

Here is what the company says about their product: (copied and pasted directly)

Our Eczema Cream uses the power of oatmeal to soothe and relieve the itching and irritation caused by eczema. Natural oils are combined with Niacinamide and Panthenol to moisturize while strengthening the skin’s natural barrier. Our clinically-tested formula relieves the common symptoms of eczema, prevents dryness and redness, and protects the skin from external aggressors.
  • Colloidal Oatmeal – Proven active ingredient to treat and prevent eczema and the symptoms associated with eczema and rashes. Soothes, replenishes and calms the skin.
  • Shea Butter – Deeply nourishes to reduce dryness and irritation, while providing a layer of moisture to the skin’s barrier.
  • Niacinamide & Panthenol – Strengthens epidermal barrier function, supporting overall skin health and preventing transepidermal water loss. When supported, a strong epidermal barrier keeps skin hydrated and nourished.
  • Meadowfoam and Safflower Oil – Rich in essential fatty acids and nutrients to replenish and nourish dry, dehydrated and sensitive skin to reduce the appearance of redness and irritation.

Beard Command Oil and Beard Balm Kit for Men (Review)



I was recently sent a Cherry scented Beard Oil and Beard Balm/Butter Kit for my husband to try. He has worn a full but neatly groomed beard for 10+ years. He keeps it a moderate length but it is thick and has some curl to it. It often gets unruly due to the natural curl and the coarse sprigs of grey that pop up. :) (LOL.) It is true. We frequently joke that he needs some "Just for Men" beard dye. 

He often uses beard oil or a balm similar to soft hold styling wax that grooms and conditions his beard. He has been testing this one from Beard Command. You can find them on Facebook. I like the cherry scent and find that it reminds me of a tobacco cherry pipe or a sweetly fragranced cigar. I do not smoke (neither does he) but we often like a tobacco-scented aftershave or body wash on him. I like the skin and hair follicle nourishing ingredients in the balm and oil. I do find that the oil is a stronger scent than the balm. I prefer the balm fragrance. They are similar but the oil triggers my migraines if I sniff it up close, directly from the bottle or too much is used. I admit I have dabbed some of the oil around my neck and behind my ears as I like the scent. I just cannot put it on too heavily as it is very strongly scented. I think this is a beautiful and mysterious unisex scent. This set is perfect for any bearded fellow and the product should last a long time. We have had this a month and he does not need to use much if the balm to smooth and tame his beard. He scrapes the balm with his nail and then warms the balm between his fingers or palms. He applies the balm after he has brushed his beard. He has a rounded boar bristle beard brush, a wooden comb, and a badger hair brush. The badger hair brush is actually a regular hair brush that he brushes both his hair on his head and the beard hair on his face. It is always a funny sight to see him use a full-sized hairbrush on his beard. The photo of the balm shows about how much has been used in a two-week period. We like the packaging of the balm. The tin is nice in the hand and the logo/photo is classy.

I love that this is made in the USA and cruelty-free. The ingredients are great and we use natural products whenever possible.

Balm - Beeswax, Shea Butter, Kokum Butter, Sweet Almond Oil, Essential Oils
Oil - Argan Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Essential Oils 


I was sent this set for my honest opinion. I received no sponsorship/payment. I received only an evaluation sample set for review.

Menthonol Lotion for Sore Muscles and Joint Pain Review






I was sent some muscle relief lotion from Menthonol. I have frequent back pain and my 7-year-old has leg pain at night. I am thinking it is the common growing pains like I have when I was her age. I remember they felt like Charley Horses in my legs and I would cry about them. I have used this on her legs and although it makes her legs a little chilly cold, she appreciates that this helps with the pain. She does not take OTC medication when she has pain. We keep things as natural as possible. This cream and a banana (potassium) usually help her relax enough to go back to bed. My husband uses this cream on his tired, achy legs, feet and ankles. I use it on my back, neck, and forehead. Even though I mainly get migraines, I often have tension/stress headaches as well. This helps with lessening some of the pain when I use it around my forehead and temples. I like using it on my lower back as I frequently have lower back pain. My husband has frequent shoulder pain due to the way he sleeps. 

I love that this cream is natural and does not contain petroleum. We do not use Vicks vapor rub as it contains petroleum and turpentine oil. I have had several colds this winter, due to a first grader who brings home her friend's colds. It seems that a lot of her friends go to school when they are still very sick and contagious. I am guessing their parents both work and do not want to stay home? :) 

I kid you not, I have had at least one cold every 4-6 weeks since October. I have only tested this cream for a month, but I used it during my most recent cold. I suffer from frequent, miserable, stuffed up nasal passages and sneezing. I cannot breathe when I get colds. I never take OTC cold medicines, except for the occasional homeopathic children's' Zarbees. This is a great menthol lotion to put up high on my chest and near my neck to breathe in some of the vapors. For my kids, I put menthol cream on the bottom of their feet and cover them with socks. 

When I found out that this had Emu oil, I was super excited. I love that oil because it is transdermal and goes deep into the tissue and helps with pain. Arnica oil is another fantastic ingredient! 

Here are the ingredients, straight from the website: (The following was copied and pasted exactly from the Menthonol website.)

MENTHONOL INGREDIENTS (including ingredients approved by the US FDA for the temporary relief of minor aches and pains of muscles and joints associated with arthritis, strains, and simple backache):
  • SEANOL-S: powerful, patented extract from the Ecklonia cava marine algae with powerful healing properties, including:  healthy inflammatory responses that both heal and protect as a result of improved blood condition and flow; significant blood circulation improvements and overall promotion of vascular   health that heals joints, muscles and surrounding tissue; and strong anti-oxidant scavenging of free radicals that reduces oxidative stress and promotes healthy cellular function.
  • MENTHOL: one of nature’s most effective pain relievers, menthol has analgesic properties that provide relief from many aches and pains.  In response to inflammation, menthol delivers a strong cooling sensation by stimulating receptors that recognize temperature change and cause “cold” signals to be sent to the brain providing relief from the painful “burning” of inflammation.
  • CAMPHOR: delivers dual cooling and heating sensations.  When applied it cools and numbs nerve endings and a short time later it warms the painful area as it increases healing circulation to stiff and sore muscles or joints.  This analgesic effect is highly effective in reducing or eliminating the pain messaging being transmitted from sore or injured areas of the body. 
  • EMU OIL: includes a powerful trans-dermal agent that can penetrate deep into and beyond the top layers of skin.  It contains high levels of linoleic acid, which is a polyunsaturated omega-6 fatty acid known to ease joint discomfort and reduce swelling.
  • ARNICA OIL: Potent healing properties are generally attributable to its thymol and helenalin compounds. Both compounds can be effective as a vasodilator of subcutaneous blood capillaries, which helps facilitate the flow of blood and acts to promote healthy inflammatory responses and to assist normal healing processes.  Specifically, arnica oil aids in stimulating the flow of white blood cells, which process congested blood to help disperse trapped fluid from the joints, muscles and bruised tissue.
I received this cream complimentary to review. This is my honest opinion on it. It is a top quality cream and I love it. I highly recommend it. I receive no payment to tell you about this item. If you happen to purchase it, that is great! Please know I do not receive any benefit from anyone purchasing this product. I just like spreading the word about good products that are NATURAL.

Bluetooth 4.2 Headphones Archmage SoundClean09 Review



I was sent some bluetooth headphones this month for my review. They are working well for me and I use them each day. They came with a molded foam zipper storage case. They are nice looking headphones that fold somewhat flat when storing. I would have preferred them to be pink though! The color is a deep blue with a very slight touch of teal. I actually had planned to give them to my husband after my review but I like them a lot and he has not gotten the chance to try them! :)

They can be used with an aux cable or charged by micro USB and then used wirelessly. The charge can potentially last up to 50 hours! I generally just use them with the cord as I use these with my MacBook Pro. The sound is clear and these are fairly comfortable to wear. I always prefer headphones instead of earbuds. The $50 price range is reasonable for these. I have never had headphones over the $100 range so I cannot compare these to more expensive brands. For the casual once or twice a week movie watcher like me or someone who just likes listening to some music in their spare time, these work well. I have no complaints with these. There has not been any static with these. 

*These were sent complimentary for review/testing.

Sore Throat Spray Throat37 by Clyor (Review)





I was sent this natural throat spray for my honest review from Clyor. It is called Throat37. It helps with prevention of strain and issues while also can be used when strain or discomfort is present. This product can provide relief from a sore throat from sickness or soothe and protect your throat if you use it extensively for singing and speaking. It contains an herbal tincture that provides lubrication for the throat and vocal cords. The ingredients are wonderful and boost immunity and can potentially shorten a cold. I often take Echinacea tea and Elderberry when I am sick and I appreciate that this contains these ingredients. I like that it is an easy to use, convenient spray in an amber colored glass bottle. 

I have only used this for a week as I decided to use this for my sore throat and cold. I usually get a sinus/chest/head cold several times a year. Just this winter alone, I have had at least 3 colds, due to a first grader who brings nasty germs home and then passes it to her 2 younger brothers and then I catch it after being around the kids as I stay at home. I am hoping this cold will be cut in half. I also try to eat a lot of raw honey and sip hot herbal teas.
