Review Michael Todd Soniclear Elite

I’m thrilled with the Michael Todd Soniclear Elite! Actually I’m a huge fan of all of their beauty tools. I haven’t had a chance to try their beauty products such as lotions and things but I can vouch for the beauty tools! I already own the Michael Todd Soniclear Petite and I love it so of course I was trilled to review their full size Soniclear Elite. It’s a full size cleansing brush that comes with the body wand attachment as well as the body brush attachment so not only can it be used for cleansing and exfoliating your face but it works well as a body brush too! Where Michael Todd brushes differ from Clarisonic is that they specialize in  antimicrobial brushes. Of course you would still clean your brush off when your done with it but because it’s antimicrobial it will kill 99.9 % of bacteria unlike a regular cleansing brush. In my opinion that’s a pretty big deal right their. It actually has SIX different speeds and it’s totally waterproof. Also, the quality of the Michael Todd Soniclear brushes are very high quality. I’ve tested and reviewed several different brands over the years and no, they are not all created equal. I’ve actually thrown some in the trash can. LoL and I’m not kidding either! I nice perk about the Soniclear Elite is that it has C-Boost™ Technology – an additional pulsating massage mode that promotes collagen growth. There is even an optional attachment that promotes the growth of collagen. What is collagen you ask? Well, I can tell you that the lack of it is what causes those pesky wrinkles on your face! Collagen plumps the skin and gives it that youthful look.

Another thing I love about the Soniclear Elite is the matching colored cord! Such a minor detail but I’ll always know that cord goes with my Soniclear! Don’t you hate when your cords get mixed up and you need to charge something?

How to get REALLY GOOD free samples in the mail from PinchMe!

2So, I thought today was going to be like any other day. Wake up, eat breakfast, get the baby dressed and walk to the mail box to collect the junk mail and bills like normal. Well, I’m happy to announce I found a really nice surprise instead! My PinchMe box came and it was packed with sample! Yay for me! How exciting! What is PinchMe? It a really cool sample service that’s totally FREE! That’s right, I said FREE! Companies send provide samples of their products to distribute to the public and all you have to do is request them. To do this all you have to do is head over to the PinchMe website by CLICKING HERE and register for a free account. Don’t worry, they won’t spam your email or mailing address. I’ve actually been a member for a few years now and love the site! Here are some pictures of what I found in my PinchMe box when I opened it. Remember your mileage may vary meaning it’s first come first serve and each month the samples are different.

So far my favorite goodie from the box is the Blistex Bliss Flip lib balm! I love the packaging and the packaging is so convent! It feels really nice when I apply it to my lips and there is no cap to get lost.

Oh course I love the Tide pods! Who doesn’t love Tide! Just toss one of the pods in your washing machine with your clothes and turn the machine one. These work with front or top loaded machines because they are the “he” type. Of course you should always keep any cleaning product out of reach of children but take special caution with pods when children are in the home because they are very attractive to little ones.

Next I got a sample size jar of Pond’s anti wrinkle cream in the mail! At 38 a girls got to start thinking about these things! The sample jar includes a really generous size amount of the product which is really nice. I hate samples that are really small and have one use of the cream or whatever the sample is. I actually throw those in the trash because personally I don’t think their worth my time. Don’t tell anyone I said that.

The Scotch Brite cleaning cloth came at just the right time because I was actually needing to purchase some dish rags so I’m really happy about that. The quality of this one is really nice! I tried this when wiping down my leather couches to get the dog hair off and it did a really good job. Next I tried it on the kitchen counters and the stove and I was happy with that too. In other words It can be used for more than just a dish cloth.

The Sinful Shine top coat I really like a lot! Not only was it a full size sample but it left my nails extra glossy! Very nice! The packaging is attractive too.

What I really like about being a PinchMe member is that you get a few things in your sample box and not just one item. To get your free box head over to their website and hurry and sign up before Sample Tuesday. That’s when they post the samples and they do go fast so that’s why it’s best to have your account ready and waiting.





ISA Professional Digital Hair Straightening Brush Review

I found this to be so much more convenient than a regular flat iron! Even though it’s a “brush” you should still brush your hair to make sure it’s smooth and ready for this tool. Once you’ve done that simply turn the ISA Digital Straightener on and allow it a few seconds to warm up. You’ll see the temperature display on the front and you can use the arrow buttons to adjust the temperature up or down. When you’re ready to start using the straightener simply brush it threw your hair using a slow steady motion. Not only is it much easier and faster but I find it gives my hair a much more natural straight look and doesn’t over heat my hair unnecessarily. I really like that it came with an included heat resistant glove too! That was a nice added bonus. I’ve reviewed a several different brush style straighteners and this one is by far superior in quality. It has a salon quality cord that’s extra-long and thick. There is a swivel at the base of the brush so the cord can swivel making it easier to use allowing it to move with you. This brush has 100% Titanium Ceramic plates rather than rubber or metal plates like the others I’ve tested. This is a quality product made with top quality material, and it has 2 year warranty as well.

Review of the Heka Oil Diffuser

Had I known how much a diffuser could improve life, I would have gotten one a long time ago. Not only is it elegant and pretty but It comes with a fancy ceramic cover which turns it into beautiful home decor.  The light controls are a really nice touch; my personal favorite is the blue. I have quite a few other diffusers spread out all around the house but I made sure this one went front and center in the living room because it’s so pretty and blends in so well. There are lots of colors to choose from or you can just let the automatic color changing lights run which makes a beautiful display. Another thing I love about using oil diffusers is the fact that you can control the scent by how many drops of essential oil you add to the water. Personally I’m one of those people who hate fake smells in the air from plug ins or sprays in the air but after using oil diffuses I’ve come to realize there is a way to add scent to a room without it being over whelming or over the top. The Heka Oil Diffusers has 2 small discrete buttons on the bottom behind it. One controls the light color and the other controls the diffuser. This product is very easy to use right out of the box. Basically, you just unbox it, add water to the fill line, add a few drops of your favorite essential oil, put the lid on, plug it in and turn it on! Of course, be sure not to leave the cord dandling where small children can pull it down.  All in all I’m very happy with this diffuser and out of all of the different ones I own this is my favorite. I do have to point out that it doesn’t hold much water. Only 2 or so ounces so I find myself filling it a lot because personally I use it every day.

You can find it on sale for $38.99 on Amazon by CLICKING HERE.

Millions of Amazon Sellers & Reviewers Left in SHOCK! Amazon Reviewer Policy Update is BIG NEWS!

gettyimages-521186348.jpgAmazon made a really big change to their Community as of Oct 5th leaving over 3 million sellers in SHOCK including the millions of Amazon reviewers! This affects all reviewers in a big way as well as sellers!

So what’s the big news? Reviews ON AMAZON can no longer be written in exchange for free or discounted products.

Businesses wanting to market their products and gain honest reviews can still have their products reviewed and blogged about on other platforms such as personal blogs (such as this one), Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc.

So basically if you’re a reviewer and your caught leaving a review on amazon, even with a disclosure such as, “I received this product in exchange for an honest review” or “Sample sent for review purposes”, your putting your Amazon account at risk of being deleted! Crazy in my opinion but that’s Amazons new updated policy.

I personally use a site called Tomoson to find my products to review. What they are doing is removing the option to leave Amazon reviews but they are leaving the social media options and blog options. So if you’re a reviewer and you still want to get free products to review you can still find them on the site. And from the business persons stand point (the sellers), what business in the world has never ran a sale or advertisement for their product? I don’t believe Amazon is trying to prevent free or discounted products or prevent sellers from gaining advertisement for their products.

Businesses can still send products for free or at a discounted price while requesting posts on other social media platforms such as Facebook or Youtube.

My personal opinion about the Amazon policy update is that I think is sucks!
