Review: Finally Light Bulb

While making sure we have the perfect hue of blush to complement our skin tone is necessary for the perfect look – we should also consider the importance of having the right light. Whether it’s in our bathroom, vanity or bedroom, we need to surround ourselves with a warm glow, which can make all the difference when getting ready in the morning for work or for a night out.

Introducing the Finally Light Bulb.  The Finally Light Bulb Company has created bulbs that feature Acandescence™ technology, an innovative lighting technology with one goal in mind: to reliably recreate the same light as an incandescent bulb without the energy waste or excessive cost.  The quality of light it produces is both eco and consumer-friendly, as well as comfortable and safe on our eyes.

Finally Light Bulb was kind enough to send me some light bulbs to test out for myself. My husband suggested we try the new light bulb out in our bathroom. I was so amazed at the light one light bulb produces. Below is a before using our regular bulbs and after is using Finally Light Bulb. 
 
My thoughts: I am very impressed with Finally Light Bulb and the amount of light it puts off. I am now able to apply my make up better and see better in my bathroom. The plus to Finally Light Bulb is they use 74% less energy, instant on and instant re-start, and a 10 year warranty based on 3 hours of normal consumer use each day. 

Finally Light Bulbs are available for purchase on www.finallybulbs.com, as well as Quidsi.com sites such as Soap.com, Diapers.com and Casa.com.  The Finally™ 60 Watt retails for $9.99 and the 100 Watt replacement bulbs are available for pre-order for $14.99.  The bulbs will be sold in national retail stores by the end of this year.

Review: Niapads





Niapads is a simple one-step Acne relief process for opening clogged skin pores, exfoliation, diminishing Acne Scars and keeping Acne bacteria away. Skin friendly emollients prevent drying of skin. Niapads contains Lavender oil, which is well-known for its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties; and yes, it provides a sweet mild lavender scent. 

Did you know?
Scientific research has shown that topical application of Niacinamide is more effective in reducing Acne than using antibiotics such as Clindamycin. Niacinamide is not an antibiotic and there are no antibiotic related side-effects associated with its use.  Niacinamide is also known as Nicotinamide or Vitamin B3. It is a common food additive in fortified foods and is widely used in cosmetics and medication products.  Niacinamide also effectively minimizes skin hyper-pigmentation (acne scars).

I was recently given the chance to test Niapads out for myself. Although I am 32 I still get the occasional pimple from time to time. Just about every single acne product that I have tried leaves my skin red and dry. I was very excited to see how Niapads would work for me. I decided to give it a try last night. The pads come in a ziploc type bag to keep them fresh. I started out by using a few drops of water onto the pad then I gently scrubbed the affected area. I waited about 30 seconds then I rinsed it off with water and then gently dried my face with a towel. I was shocked at my results when I woke up this morning. I could not believe how much improvement happened over night. This has never happened to me before! I LOVE Niapads and will definitely be purchasing more when I run out. Check out my before and after photo below!

    My thoughts: It's been a month and half since I started using the cream. I turned 32 this year and the wrinkles and fine lines are coming! YIKES!! I will admit like most I was skeptical of this product and did not have high hopes of it helping. The first few days it was honestly hard to stick with it due to how it felt on my face. My face felt a little dry but I did notice after 30 minutes it went away. I have noticed a huge difference in my eczema since using this. My face is less itchy and my fine lines are improving! I definitely think this is a wonderful product and I think the longer you use it the better the results get. Below are my results so far:

    Review: SwiftWick Socks

     I was recently given the chance to test two pairs of ankle socks from SwiftWick. I received Aspire One in Cool Mint and Aspire One in Halo Green.
     
     

    Details:
    The ASPIRE Line is thin and light for serious runners and cyclists, yet still perfect for athletes of any sport. Our Managed Compression™ prevents bunching and hot spots by supporting all 3 arches in the foot. Our Linked-Toe technology prevents blisters by eliminating bunching in the toe-box. The result is a sock designed to fit your feet perfectly while helping you do what moves you. 

    Technology:
    • Reduces swelling, increases endurance and improves muscle stability for a stronger performance.
    • Chemical Free Wicking – Performs every time and delivers the ultimate dry fit. We fuse the most advanced knit patterns with hollow Olefin fibers to pull sweat off your body and repel external moisture.
    • Blister-Free – Our seamless Linked Toe and Managed Compression™ technologies keep your feet blister-free. This fit gently hugs the shape of your foot and eliminates negative space.
    • Antimicrobial – Feet can stink, but your socks don’t have to. Our natural antimicrobial technology fights bacteria and odor to ensure that your socks stay fresh.
    • Half Density Weave – Enhances range of motion and prevents bunching as your foot flexes
    • Zoned Climate Channels – Release heat and moisture for optimal temperature
    • Linked Toe Technology – Seamless construction eliminates hot spots
    • 1" Managed Compression™ Cuff – Stays up on your leg forever
    • Y-Heel Contour – Lateral foothold delivers a no slip fit
    • 3-Point Arch Support – Increases endurance and reduces fatigue
     I was so excited to open my package from SoftWick! As soon as I opened it and my son saw the halo green socks he took them. Mint green is one of my favorite colors so I was so happy to receive that color. We tested them out Saturday. We went to Cruisin' the Coast. We did a LOT of walking looking at classic cars and hot rods. We ended not getting home until a litlte after midnight. I must say we are both very impressed with these socks. They stay in place like socks should and even after sweating and being in the heat all day our feet DID NOT stink! We love our SoftWick socks and will definitely be purchasing more!

    Review: 6th Sense Styling Technology Fh-1 Professional Styler

    I was recently given the opportunity to try a 6th Sense Professional Flat Iron Hair Straightener

     6th Sense Styling Technology has studied what factors must be present in a flat iron hair straightener to make it most effective. They selected high quality tourmaline impregnated ceramic plates to do the job.

     Why?
     The hair shaft is a delicate thing. The outer layer – the cuticle – is heat sensitive. Cuticle damage shows up as split ends and lifeless hair. Tourmaline is a crystal – it increases negative ions, which balance hair to drastically reduce static and frizz.

    So how do you get the style you want without the ravages of heat?
     By using the correct temperature for your particular hair texture and weight. And by getting the job done with the fewest passes possible. The 6th Sense ionic bond seals in moisture, helping keep the cuticle intact, preventing splitting and dryness. The ceramic component of our floating plates allows for fast heat up and even heat distribution. And, the FH-1 delivers that heat fast – fully ready to go in less than 30 seconds. The floating plates deliver a smooth 1 pass straightening experience that keeps your hair healthy and shiny.

    Ever have a flat iron pull and pinch your hair? 
    Well, that’s a thing of the past. The FH-1 is smooth and its floating plates caress your hair and never pinch or tug. They also know that one of the most frustrating things that can happen to you is to have your flat iron die on you! So, they have crafted a durable, professional quality tool to give you years of use. They seal the deal with a 4-year warranty to prove it. The FH-1 has been bench tested for 800 hours of use. That means you get your money’s worth – years of it. Pros using the FH-1 rave about its workhorse delivery, day after day and you will too.

    Features:
    • Tourmaline Ceramic plates that blast your hair with negative ions, that protect the hair cuticle
    • Under 30 Second Heat Up
    • Microchip Heat Control – gets the temperature you need, when you need it
    • Professional Quality backed by a 4 year warranty
    • 1 Inch Floating Plates that don’t pinch, they glide through your hair
    • Locking mechanism to keep your styler closed on the go
    • Automatic shutoff
    • Heat Resistant carry bag
     I used a Chi straightener for many, many years. I recently sold it after trying this straightener! I have long, thick, coarse hair. As you can imagine the process of straightening has always been a long process for me. I was amazed at how this straightener made the process so much shorter. It usually takes at least 45 minutes to do my hair. Within 25-30 minutes my hair is straight and I am ready to walk out the door. Some of the pluses for me are: takes under 30 seconds to heat up, I can control how hot I want my straightener to be,  and the automatic shutoff. My hair is so so much softer, pin straight, and shiner since using this straightener. The heat resistant carry bag is a plus as well. I no longer have to wait for my straightener to cool down. If I am going out of town I just place it in the heat resistant carry bag and I can pack it without worrying if it will burn anything.
