Crowdtap Sampling....Zep Microwave Miracle Foaming Cleaner Review #MicrowaveMiracle

I love participating in the Sample & Share opportunities from Crowdtap. I get to try new products from some of my favorite companies. This time the sample is the Zep Microwave Miracle Foaming Cleaner. I usually use vinegar & water to clean my microwave, but I'm always willing to try something new if it will save time & effort.

One of the things that I appreciate about Crowdtap samplings is that the "samples" are full-size products. It's hard to test a product if you only get a small single-use sample. The Zep Microwave Miracle that I received is 8 ounces so I will get a lot of use from this bottle.

I had not cleaned my microwave since I knew I would be receiving this product to test so I read the instructions to get started. It's so simple to use this product. Just spray the cleaner all over the bottom of the microwave or all over the turntable, set the timer for 2 minutes & let the microwave & the cleaner do all of the work for you! After 2 minutes, give it time to cool & then wipe down the interior of your microwave with paper towels. It wipes off really easily & you'll have a clean microwave in less than 10 minutes!

See how easy that was! The cleaner does all the work & I get a shiny clean microwave that smells fresh & looks new. Now I've got extra time to spend doing things other than cleaning.

This cleaner is NOT for use on the exterior of the microwave, the exterior of any other appliances or any dish that comes into contact with food. If you spray the cleaner on the turntable, like I did, be sure to wash it before putting it back in the microwave.

So. Here is what I think about Zep Microwave Miracle Foaming Cleaner: If you haven't tried this product yet, you need to! I highly recommend it. It's easy to use. There's no scrubbing. Your microwave will look new & smell fresh. What's not to love??!!?

I want to say "Thank You" to Zep & Crowdtap for choosing me for this Sampling. This is a product that you will find in my kitchen from now on!

Perfect for day trips, picnics at the park or a day at the lake! Big Size Insulated Lunch Bag/Cooler by Sacko Review #LunchBag

Now that it is Spring, we love weekend driving trips. We pack a lunch & head out to a nearby State Park for a picnic by the lake or explore some of the Farm to Market roads during wildflower season. This Big Size Insulated Lunch Bag/Cooler by Sacko is the perfect bag to carry our snacks & lunch items.

This really is a BIG lunch bag. It measures 13"x 13"x 8" & has a padded adjustable shoulder strap. The bag comes in several colors. Mine is green/white/black & the insulated lining is white. The bag has two black mesh side pockets that are perfect for storing utensils or napkins & a front pocket that is wide enough for your paper plates. On the top of the bag is a velcro flap that allows easy access to the contents of the bag. This makes it really easy to grab a soda or a bottle of water while we're driving without having to unzip the whole top.

On our most recent day trip, we packed the lunch bag/cooler with ice, water, sodas, beers, mayo, mustard, pimiento cheese, hot dogs, cheese, tomatoes, lemons & limes (we also added lettuce, relish & candy bars before we finally zipped the top closed) with plenty of room to spare. The drive to the lake is about 90 minutes & our picnic lunch was in the bag for another 3 hours before we finally unpacked it to cook the hot dogs. Everything was still cold!

So. Here is what I think about the Big Size Insulated Lunch Bag/Cooler: This bag is such a nice size! You can easily pack enough food for day trips or picnics with no problem. It's great to have to carry food or drinks to a cookout or party at a friend's house. It is easy to wipe clean & folds up for storing.

This is a good quality bag/cooler so I'm sure we'll be using ours for road trips, camping, picnics or just a day at the park for many years.

Let air in but keep bugs out! Magnetic Screen Door Review #Magneticscreendoor

This is another one of those products that I see advertised on TV every Spring. We have storm doors on both the front & back of our home but, when I had the chance to review this Magnetic Screen Door, my husband knew exactly where he wanted it installed.

The Magnetic Screen Door comes packaged in a plastic sleeve. It is black mesh & measures 83" X 39" so it will fit any standard door opening & will be perfect for use on my husband's backyard shed. He works in the shed with the door open to get air so he gets a lot of bugs in there. With this bug mesh covering the door opening, he will be able to work comfortably without the nuisance of swatting bugs but still have outside air.

When we were ready to install the mesh door, we took everything out of the packaging to see what was included. There were the 2 sides of the mesh door, a roll of Velcro & a bag of thumbtacks. We cleaned the inside door frame & put the self-adhesive Velcro on both sides & along the top. Then we attached the screens to the Velcro. It was a bit tricky getting it lined up but, once we figured out to start at the bottom instead of the top, we got it done & it does fit the door. Then we tested it to see if it really closes after we walk through. The magnets down the center are supposed to close with no gaps each time someone walks through the screen. It wasn't doing that so we decided to leave it alone & let it hang for at least a day since it had been folded up inside the packaging. Then we went back a couple of days later to test it again & it worked much better but still the magnets didn't close completely each time. But it works more often than not, so we will definitely be leaving it where it is because a few bugs are better than the swarms that were usually in the shed.

So. Here is what I think about the Magnetic Screen Door: Since we've had the mesh door installed on the work shed, my husband has been much happier working in there without so many bugs. We did have to use the thumbtacks to keep the top of the magnetic door completely attached to the door frame. It would have been nice to have a sheet of simple instructions included in the package.

This mesh door will allow my husband to work in the shed on his Honey-Do list more comfortably this Spring & Summer with fewer bugs. He's pretty happy that this door is installed.

Perfect for Spring yardwork! 150' Gorilla Hose with Solid Brass Review #ExpandableHose

I've been seeing a lot of advertisements on TV for expandable hoses. I knew that my husband would love to have one but almost every one of them is either too expensive or not long enough or was featured on a "Deal or Dud" segment of our local news & deemed a "dud". Then I was offered the chance to review this 150' Gorilla Hose with Solid Brass & I knew that I could not pass it up.

The hose came packaged in plastic in a box that weighed about 4 pounds. I opened the plastic bag & got the hose out so that we could hook it up to the faucet. The first thing that my husband noticed was that the fittings on both ends are brass, not plastic like those other hoses that we see advertised on TV.

So we hooked the hose up to the faucet & turned it on. Now, I may be easily amused but I had so much fun watching that hose expanding! It was like a giant snake coming to life. Once it had expanded to its full length, which happened really quickly, we turned on the nozzle to see what kind of spray we would get. There is a black switch on the nozzle to turn the water on & off so you don't have to go back to your faucet handle each time you move to a different area of your yard. The water pressure we got is really good for a hose that long.

After watering, we shut the water off & spray until the hose was empty. Then we wind it up on our hose reel. It is SO much easier to wind up than our old rubber hose because it is so lightweight. The only heavy part of this hose are the brass fittings. I'm really happy with this hose because when my husband is at work during the week, I water the garden & backyard so that he doesn't have to do it when he gets home in the evenings.

So. Here is what I think about the 150' Gorilla Hose: We've used this hose every day for almost a month now & have not had any problems at all. It has not kinked or gotten tangled & is easy to pull into even the farthest corners of the backyard. I'm so happy that we have this Gorilla Hose because it makes my job of watering our garden & flowers so much easier. And it's easy to wind it up when I'm finished watering. I love this hose & we're getting rid of all of our old rubber hoses!

La Beaute Pure Anti-Aging Serum Review #labeautepure

I was not familiar with La Beaute Pure when I was given the opportunity to review one of their products. I'm a big fan of Vitamin C Serums so I was very happy that the product that I got to review is their Anti-Aging Serum. I love the packaging of this serum! Just look at the beautiful oranges on the label. That just screams "Vitamin C"!

This Anti-Aging Serum comes in a 1 fluid ounce amber glass dropper bottle. According to the label, this serum is a "concentrated delivery system for the highest form of bio-available Vitamin C for beautiful skin". It also states that the Vitamin C is "suspended in a concentrated base of pure vegan hyaluronic acid to plump skin cells and protect and restore". Sounds good to me!

I use skincare products twice daily, after I wash my face each morning & again when I'm getting ready to go to sleep each night. So that is the way that I used this serum too. Because it is dispensed through a dropper, I don't have to worry about wasting any of the product. It has a subtle earthy scent which I really like. Once I have applied it to my face & neck, it absorbs quickly & doesn't feel greasy or sticky. I have not experienced any redness or irritation from using this product on my somewhat sensitive skin.

I've been using this Anti-Aging Serum for several weeks now. I know that it takes longer for a product to work at a cellular level, but with continued use I'm hoping to see smoother skin & fewer fine lines around my eyes.

So. Here is what I think about La Beaute Anti-Aging Serum: I like that this serum comes with an eBook with 15 recipes for DIY Facial Masks. I like that this product is good for all skin types. I like the earthy scent. I love the colorful label! I like the way my skin feels after I use the serum & I will definitely continue using it as a part of my daily routine.

And I really like that it is 98% Natural, 72% Organic and Made in the U.S.A.!

You can purchase this Anti-Aging Serum on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Anti-Aging-Facial-Serum-Hyaluronic-Hyperpigmentation/dp/B00GDV55B4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1427473191&sr=8-1&keywords=la+beaute+pure+anti-aging+serum

Warmer weather is coming! Sun'n'Fun Broad Spectrum SPF30 Sunscreen for Kids Review #sweetsationtherapy

Now that Spring has officially arrived & the weather is starting to get warmer, we will be spending a lot more time outdoors. This means a lot more time in the sun. And even if it's a cloudy day, we still need to be protected with a good sunscreen. But getting kids to want to stand still long enough to apply sunscreen can sometimes be frustrating, so I was very interested to try this Fun'n'Sun Broad Spectrum SPF30 Sunscreen for Kids.

There are a lot of sunscreens on the market right now that are specifically for children. But just check out some of the wonderful ingredients in this one: Organic Marshmallow, Grapeseed & Raspberry are rich in Vitamin C & antioxidants to fight skin damage; Green Tea for neutralizing free radicals; Kelp & Cucumber are highly moisturizing, soothing & hydrating; Rosehip Oil promotes healing & nourishes skin; Tamanu Oil has high anti-inflammatory properties & helps with dry skin & eczema; and a combination of Cocoa (yes!) & a hint of vanilla create the wonderful CHOCOLATE scent. Yep! Chocolate!!

When I opened the top of the tube, I could smell the chocolate scent. Now, this is supposed to be for kids but I admit that this is a sunscreen that I will use too! It is a light brown color when it comes out of the tube but, once it is applied to the skin, it disappears & doesn't leave that white film like some sunscreen products. It doesn't feel greasy after it is absorbed, just soft & dry. It doesn't take a lot of this sunscreen so be careful how much you squeeze out because a little bit does go a long way.

We have not yet had a chance to test this sunscreen after swimming because it's not warm enough for a trip to the lake yet. But the tube indicates that it is water-resistant for 80 minutes which means that it should be reapplied after 80 minutes of swimming or sweating or immediately after towel drying.

So. Here is what I think about Sun'n'Fun Broad Spectrum SPF30 Sunscreen for Kids: Why didn't someone think to make sunscreen smell like chocolate a long time ago?? It's such a good idea to make kids WANT to wear their sunscreen all the time! I like that this product contains so many natural ingredients. I like that this sunscreen is safe for even the youngest skin.

And I like products like this one that are Made in the U.S.A.!

You can purchase this chocolate-scented sunscreen for your kids on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Spectrum-Sunscreen-Antioxidants-Marshmallow-Chocolate/dp/B002ES6Z0K/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top?ie=UTF8

Dessange Paris Oleo Miracle Replenishing Shampoo, Conditioner & Oil #JadoreDessange

I am so happy that I was chosen by Influenster to receive & review the #DessangeVoxBox! I couldn't wait for it to arrive because I was excited to try these replenishing products on my hair which I abuse by coloring it every month.

Finally! The box arrived & I opened it right up so that I could see the products that were going to make my hair thank me. I had already done a bit of research so I knew that these replenishing products contain three precious oils: argan, camellia & pracaxi. I'm familiar with Argan Oil, but I have never heard of the others.

All of the products were packaged inside of a ziplock bag just in case there was any spillage. We all know how the Post Office sometimes treats our packages....  But everything was intact so I opened the bag & took out the products.

The first thing that caught my eye was the packaging. I love the colors & it looks very expensive. From my research, I found out that the legendary French hairdresser, Jacques Dessange, opened his fist salon in Paris in 1954 & was favored by many French actresses. He eventually became the Official Hairdresser of the Cannes Film Festival! And I get to try products from Dessange right here in my own home!!

When I was ready to wash my hair, I gathered up all of the products & headed for the shower. The Oleo Miracle Replenishing Shampoo is a light golden color & feels silky soft in my palm. It lathers nicely & smells like perfume! But then, I wouldn't expect anything less from a French product! After I rinsed out the shampoo, I applied the Oleo Miracle Replenishing Conditioner. It is a white cream, but very light. I applied it to the entire length of my hair, especially the ends. After a couple of minutes, I rinsed it out. It rinsed out cleanly & left my hair feeling smooth. And it smells amazing! Next I wanted to go ahead & use the Oleo Miracle Replenishing Oil, which is a leave-in treatment, so that I could experience the whole system. I towel dried my hair & applied 2 dime-sized drops of the oil to my hair. I combed it through & let it air dry for a while before using my blow dryer.
My hair never looks like this! There are no frizzy or flyaway ends & it feels soft & smooth. I think I'm in love! Not only do these products work but they smell amazing! I just want to be sure that you realize that they smell great! I almost don't need to wear any perfume after I wash my hair because my hair smells so good.

So. I know you want to try these wonderful products. And guess what??!!? You can buy them at Target! I'm not lying. Check it out right here.

I want to say a great big Thank You to @Influenster and @DessangeParis for the chance to try these products. I'll definitely be going to Target to buy more once these bottles are empty.

Taking a trip? 1.25oz Travel Bottles AND 15 inch Packing Organizer Review #travelbottles #packingfolder

We took our vacation a few months ago & I really could have used these products when I was packing. We went overseas & I was trying to pack as much as possible into the smallest space possible so that we only had to check one bag & everything else could stay in the cabin of the plane with us. These two products from Dot & Dot would have helped me accomplish this while also keeping things more organized.

The 1.25oz Travel Bottles come in a clear toiletry bag so they can be easily inspected by TSA & are TSA approved so they can go right onto the plane in your carry-on luggage. The set includes 4 pastel colored bottles with screw-on tops with leak-proof valves. They are made of 100% BPA Free Food Grade Silicone so you can use them to carry baby food or your favorite condiment that you just can't live without!

The large opening make it easy to refill the bottles & the squeezable sides make it easy to dispense your liquids. They come pre-printed with labels for Sunscreen, Shampoo, Conditioner, Lotion & Soap. There are also 3 blank labels so that you can label your own contents. These Travel Bottles allow you to carry all of your favorite toiletries without having to buy travel size versions.

The 15 inch Packing Organizer that I received is red with black mesh & a black handle. It comes in a zipper-top plastic storage bag. This bag can be used to pack additional items or to store the Packing Organizer when it's not being used. The organizer looks like a big envelope. It is 15" X 10" when it is closed & is made of a lightweight water-resistant material with velcro closures.

One side is mesh which is really handy to press the extra air out of the organizer once it is packed & the bottom is reinforced to add sturdiness. Also included is a plastic shirt folding board with Folding Instructions to help you fold your shirts & tops neatly to minimize wrinkling. The Packing Organizer will hold up to 7 shirts or pairs of pants so it will allow you to pack more in a smaller space.

So. Here is what I think about the 1.25oz Travel Bottles & 15-inch Packing Organizer: Anything that can make packing easier & save time at the airport inspection lines is exactly what I want. I like that the Travel Bottles also come in 2oz & 3oz sizes and that the Packing Organizer comes in several colors as well as a larger 18"X12" size. I like that both of these products are made of sturdy materials so that they will last for years of trips. I did not have either of these products on our last vacation but they will definitely be used for all of our trips from now on!

You can find these products in all colors & sizes on Amazon:

HOT + SWEET Smoked Spanish Paprika Powder Review #SmokedPaprika

I use a lot of herbs & spices when I cook but Paprika is a spice that I'm not very familiar with & really don't use a lot. So I was excited to try the HOT + SWEET Smoked Spanish Paprika from Kiva Health Food.

These Smoked Paprika spices come in 2 ounce plastic bottles with a shaker top. According to the labels on these spices, smoked paprika is imported from the La Vera region of Spain where hand-harvested peppers are smoke dried over holm oak for at least 14 days. This century old recipe gives the paprika the unique flavors. It is made in small batches for optimum aroma, color & flavor.

 Like I said above, I'm not really familiar with paprika, or at least not with smoked paprika. I've got the regular stuff in my spice cabinet & use it occasionally, mostly on deviled eggs & veggie dishes. So I was anxious to try this out to see if I could taste the difference. The first thing that I noticed when I opened these bottles is that both of them have a nice smoky smell so I knew right away that my family would love them.

I used the Hot Smoked Paprika in a smoked sausage/zucchini soup that is a favorite at our house. I usually add some chili powder to give a little bit of a kick, but the smoked paprika really gave this recipe a needed boost in taste! I have also stirred some into chicken when I was making fajitas. It gave them a nice smoky pepper taste but wasn't too hot. The Hot Smoked Paprika is also good stirred into a pot of chili & we used it in a dry rub for a roast.

I tried the Sweet Smoked Paprika in some veggie dishes, on scrambled eggs, in a rub for baked chicken & the deviled eggs that I always sprinkle with regular paprika. The Sweet Smoked Paprika is a bit spicy but not as much as the Hot.

So. Here is what I think about HOT + SWEET Smoked Spanish Paprika Powder: I like these smoked versions of paprika MUCH better than the regular stuff! I like that I can use it in old standby recipes to make them taste completely different. I like that I have discovered a spice that I will use much more now!

And I really like that the company uses ingredients that are sourced directly from local farmers that practice sustainable & eco-friendly methods.

Now, I know you want to try these wonderful spices! You can find them on Amazon:

+Lifeguard Mini 1 Portable Charger Review #pluslifeguard

When we travel, we always take along some sort of electronics. If it's a road trip or a vacation, we take our laptop, tablet, digital camera & smartphone. Even if we're just running around town doing errands or going out with friends. we have our smartphone & sometimes our camera. And when we want one of those devices to work but they have no more power, it's frustrating. So always having a portable charger like this +Lifeguard Mini 1 Portable Charger in my purse is a must!

This portable charger comes in a variety of colors: Black, Navy Blue, Pink or Silver. I got the Navy Blue charger so that hubby would feel comfortable using it in public. If I had the pink one, he'd just let the phone die! This Lifeguard Mini comes packaged with a User Guide, a Micro USB cable & a Lightning 8-pin cable (Apple Compatible). We don't own any Apple products so I won't be testing that cable.

Of course when I was ready to plug the portable charger into the wall charger for the first time, I couldn't find my wall charger. So I plugged it into my laptop instead. The light on the Lifeguard Mini turned red while it was charging & went off as soon as it was fully charged. The whole process took about 95 minutes. Not bad!!

Once the Lifeguard Mini was fully charged, I plugged it into my Samsung Tablet. While it was plugged into the tablet, the light was blue & the blue light went off when it was done. I've also used this portable charge on our smartphone & digital camera when we've been away from home & it has saved us from a lot of frustration & swearing!

So. Here is what I think about the +Lifeguard Mini 1 Portable Charger: I haven't left my house without this charger in my purse since I've owned it! I like that it take a full charge in less than 2 hours. I like that it comes in a variety of colors. I like that it comes with the extra Apple Compatible cable even though I have no use for it, but I know many Apple owners will appreciate it.

And I really like that the Lifeguard Mini can be recharged over 800 times & comes with an 18-month Money Back Guarantee.

You can find this portable charger on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Portable-Charger-LIFEGUARD-Electronic-BlackBerry/dp/B00SULA1LY/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1427132415&sr=8-4&keywords=lifeguard+portable+charger

Unboxing....Birchbox March 2015 #birchbox

My March Birchbox arrived a few days ago! The theme this month is Creativity. "I feel most creative when I _________". The box this month is pink & purple with a green bottom.

The first thing that I see when I open the box is the theme card. Fill out the blank on your card, share it & tag #BIRCHBOX and #GIVEAWAY for a chance to win full-size versions of everything in your box!

On the back of the card is the information & descriptions of all of the products in the box.

Then I pulled back the bright green tissue paper to see what goodies are in my box this month! I could see 3 of the products, but the other 2 were hidden inside of the little white & black box.

I opened the little box so that I could finally see all of my exciting new beauty products.

Here is what I got this month:

amika Bombshell Blowout Spray (full-size $24)

BeeKind Shampoo (full-size $15)

Key West Aloe Aloethera Intensive Body Moisturizer (full-size $18)

Mirenesse Glossy Kiss - Cheeky Kiss in Starlet (full-size $22)

Supergoop! Advanced Anti-Aging Eye Cream SPF 37 (full-size $45)

I'm excited to try these products! The only one I probably won't use is the Bombshell Blowout Spray because I have pretty thin hair & if I use a "volumizer" it would probably look even thinner! I'll give that one to a friend who can use it, but I'm definitely going to use all of the rest of these products.

Until next month....
