New Spa Lifting Anti Age Collagen Eye Patch Review

We seriously love hearing about different products from our friends! Ali Holman nationally recognized fitness expert, owner of Corecamper.com raved about some eye patches that take away dark circles and bags under your eyes and we had to try it!

Shirley happily volunteered to try this product New  Spa Lifting Anti-Age Collagen Eye Patch with Bio-Gold and Hyaluronic Acid. The results were amazing! We took a before, during and after photo below.

Lifting Anti Age Collagen Eye Patch

We purchased the Lifting Anti Aging Collagen Eye Patch on Amazon. Crystal collagen is an active element of the tissue rejuvenation process and skin’s own collagen stimulant.

After 30 minutes of relaxation, Shirley’s skin looked smooth and refreshed. The box came with 5 patches. As long as you keep them moist you can reuse each patch 2-3 times.

The patch hydrates the skin, stimulates cellular metabolism and cell’s regeneration. Multilevel ingredients provide excellent lifting and toning effect.

The unique ability of the collagen mask’s components to penetrate deep into the skin smooths the wrinkles, improves the turgor of the skin, making it  look young and radiant

The effect is visible after the first application – smooth, glowing and hydrated skin. Weve Tried It and loved it!

sweat block

SweatBlock Product Review

sweat block

We were thrilled to hear about a product from our friend Angie that says it can stop excessive sweating for up to 7 days. We tested SweatBlock out in the harshest of conditions (my glistening)!

SweatBlock is a liquid antiperspirant soaked soft towelette. You use it once a week by dabbing the little towelette onto your underarm area. Let it air dry for 5 minutes, go to sleep and viola! No perspiring for the next seven days!

There are hundreds of options on the market to aid in the issue but most of these products do little for those who sweat profusely. I know many women who live in jackets and blazers, and who never wear any shirt color but black due to their fear of excessive perspiration.

We can attest that this product is amazing and we are 100% satisfied. My underarms were dry no matter what the weather and the day threw at me. SweatBlock even worked through my glistening episodes (HOT flashes) as well as my training sessions. The product is effective but still gentle on my skin – no itching or rashes on my (now extra dry) underarms.

You can order SweatBlock here. We have been told that you can pick this up at your local big box stores as well.

Do you have a great product you would like us to try? Contact us and let us know.

Running

Sole F80 Treadmill Review

Let’s talk fitness! I purchased my Sole F80 treadmill over the winter so I could continue my training without having to leave the house to get to a gym.

Sole F80 Treadmill

After doing a lot of research online as well as testing out quite a few treadmill models I felt the Sole F80 was the best choice for me. I loved all the different training modes it had and the running deck has a great cushioning system.

Sole F80 Treadmill Front

The preset workouts are a great change of pace for me when I get bored with my regular workouts.

The only real downfall for me was the built-in fans. They are a little high up for those of us that are vertically challenged, so I just taped my small fan to the base and use that.

I am impressed with how quiet the machine runs.  This is a bonus for me as I tend to run early in the morning and I don’t have to worry about waking my family up.

The Sole F80 easily folds up and comes down with a pneumatic assisted unfold mechanism. The warranty on this is great, the motor, deck, and frame are all covered for life; electronics get 5 years; and labor gets two years.

Let us know what you train on and what makes it so fabulous in the comments below.

Bissell SpotBot Pet Carpet Cleaner Review

It’s time to say good riddance to the dirt and salt that has been left behind in your car from the long, hard winter.

Salt covered floor

Our floor mats were stained with salt and instead of bringing the car in for detailing we decided to tackle it ourselves with the Bissell SpotBot Pet carpet cleaner.

Bissell Spotbot

First we vacuumed the inside of our car to get rid of all the sand and dirt. We then removed our floor mats and went to work on steam cleaning them.  We know this product is geared towards pet cleanup, but we love to get the most out of each and every product we buy.

All you need to do it fill up the canister with water and cleaning solution and then you are ready to steam clean your mats and floor. It worked amazing. Look at the picture below, the car looks new.

Clean car

The Bissell SpotBot worked so good, we got a little cocky. Everyone has that one friend whose car is a disaster at all times – right? We called up ours and told her to bring her car over and we would clean it for her. We got more than we bargained for – the was a one time deal!

photo 3 (2)

As you can see in the picture she travels with her dog (we hope) – the hair was crazy! We did not use the SpotBot to pick up the hair, we unsuccessfully tried a vacuum and resorted to using a full roll of packing tape to get up the hair. Then we vacuumed and got out the SpotBot. It was like a new car after we steamed the floor.

Spotbot

Seriously, at this point I think it is safe to say that we could go into car detailing and make some good money. Instead we will move on to the next review.

We love our Bissell SpotBot and while it works great on cleaning up after our pets it also works fabulous on our car interior.

Lindy Springs

Lindysprings Systems Pure Water for Your Home Review

We were thrilled to sit down with Craig (Jehtro) Lund the owner of Lindysprings Systems out of Hudson, WI to learn about our water and what we can do to make sure it is safe and healthy.

Lindysprings Systems understands the water challenges in this area and took the time to learn about my family’s particular water treatment needs. Craig recommend the most efficient, effective and economical water treatment solution custom fit for my home. So every time we turn on your tap, you know we are getting the best water.

You can feel the concern, care and knowledge as Craig speaks. This locally owned and operated business understands the importance of honesty and integrity in all of their business dealings.

They focus exclusively on everything having to do with water softeners and other water treatment products. They don’t get sidetracked with water heaters and other plumbing related products and services. Because of our dedication to their core expertise you will find that they are head and shoulders above any of their competitors.

Lindysprings Systems offers a full line of water softeners, whole house filters and reverse osmosis drinking water systems, so you can be confident we have a solution that’s right for you and your budget. And you can count on them being here for you now and in the future.

My family went with the LRR Series II Water Softener System and the SQC Series Reverse Osmosis System.

You can find Lindysprings Systems website here and be sure to like their Facebook page.

Update: Our Lindyspring System is installed and we are in love! Here is a note that I sent to Craig about how pleased we are:

Seriously, this has been one of the best investment we have made in a long time! After having Lindyspring Systems come to our home and and test our water, we immediately set up an installation date. With chlorine levels through the roof that alone made the decision easy.

Craig and Adam spent the time to educate us on water and our health. I can’t recommend this company enough.

In just a weeks time I have already noticed that our water no longer smells like chlorine, with the reverse osmosis system the water tastes amazing, we use 1/4 of the shampoo we were once using, soft skin and ice cubes are clear! One of the biggest benefits is that I no longer have a stomachache from drinking water.

Streaming Media Comparisons: Netflix, Hulu Plus and Amazon Prime

We have been asked by one of our readers to compare the most popular streaming media services.

After doing some research and speaking to a few people we have come up with the following information.

Netflix vs Hulu Plus vs Amazon Prime

The three most popular streaming media companies right now are Netflix, Hulu Plus & Amazon Prime. The costs are pretty similar, Netflix and HuluPlus both run $8.00 per month for basic service which is streaming only. With Netflix you can add an additional service for dvd delivery for $7.99 – $11.99 per month depending on how many dvd’s you would like to be able to get at a time. Amazon prime is billed annually at $99.00 which comes out to $8.25 monthly. Your Amazon prime service give you the additional benefit of free two-day shipping for any Amazon purchase.

Netflix has the largest selection of movies and shows, but not all their movies are available for download, so to see their entire collection you have to subscribe to both services. They have licensing contracts with 4 main networks as well as Starz, BBC, Sony and DreamWorks so you have the ability to watch your favorite network shows. Another benefit of Netflix is they do not play any ads.

HuluPlus comes in second when it comes to selection of movies and shows. HuluPlus has licensing deals with Fox, NBC, Disney, MTV and many other cable channels. HuluPlus is known to update its library more frequently which means you can catch up on your favorite shows more quickly. The biggest draw back that I have heard is the ads. You must watch multiple advertisements with each download, and if you rewind to catch up on a part you have to watch the ad again.

Amazon Prime is the newest to the media service market. They have a smaller library, but are expanding it quickly. Their biggest sell seems to be the free 2 day shipping. With Amazon Prime you are making a 1 year commitment as it is billed annually.

All three do offer a free trial, with Netflix & Amazon Prime offering a 30 day trial and HuluPlus offering only a 1 week trial.

There are some great options available to help lower or eliminate a pay for tv bill. It’s nice that you can give each one a try and see what works best for your tv viewing preferences.

We currently use Netflix and are very happy with it.  Paying monthly with the option to cancel at any time. Let us know what you use and if you are satisfied with it!

Loreal-Sublime-Bronze

L’OREAL SUBLIME BRONZE SELF-TANNING LOTION REVIEW

I was looking to add a little glow to my skin after the long winter without causing damage to my skin from tanning beds, so I decided to try some self-tanning lotion.

Loreal Sublime Bronze

I purchased the L’OREAL Sublime Bronze at my local big box store. I did some research on how to get the best results without streaking and dark spots. Following the directions,  I used an exfoliating mitten in the shower then applied regular lotion to my knees and ankles. I tried this product only on my legs.

The first thing I noticed was the smell, it was very strong, kind of like an inexpensive perfume. I then noticed my legs looked glittery, I was hoping this was something that would go away once the lotion dried, it did not.

They are definitely truthful when they say instant results, I could not believe how dark my legs where already and as the day went on they got even darker.

Just to see what the results would be after 2 applications I repeated the process the next day, and yes they got darker and the smell was still strong. I believe it was asked of me “Did you take a bath in Aqua Velva?”

Loreal Self Tanning Lotion

I’m not sure if I did a good job on the application process as I am looking at my legs close up and from every angle possible, but when I step back and look at them in the mirror they do look tan.

I need to work on the application around my ankles and feet, so I will be wearing socks and tennis shoes for a few days. I would guess after more applications, I could probably perfect the application.

The only things that might prevent me from using this again are the smell and the time it takes for the lotion to dry.

This product works as advertised and when used properly can provide a sun kissed glow without going outside.

Isagenix Wellness Products Review

I am currently training to run my first New York City Marathon next fall.  I have a regular routine on my running days and Isagenix is a big part  of that routine.

Every run includes the following:

Isagenix Photo

An E+ shot before I run, a natural way to kick start a work out with caffeine derived from green tea and yerba mate’.

A bottle of water filled with all natural Want More Energy  post run to replenish electrolytes lost during the work out.

An IsaLean Pro shake post run to refill my system and help with muscle recovery!

I have done a few runs without my Isagenix routine and I did not feel the energy during my run and my  post run recovery was sluggish. I have tried various other products and Isagenix is what works for me.
