Spotlight on Women in Business: Betty Herbert – Rodan + Fields Skin Care Review

I had the pleasure of reviewing two of the Rodan + Fields skin care lines from my friend and consultant Betty Herbert.  Betty was kind enough to send me two kits:  Redefine and Redefine AMP MD.  These are the two kits that she recommended for my particular skin type and issues.

I have had a acne problem for years and I have tried everything on the market and continue to try every new product that comes out.  I’ve been to more dermatologist in my lifetime than most people visit their doctor when they are sick.  My parents both had skin issues so I got slammed from both sides of the family.  I’ve tried over the years prescription drugs for acne, pills, creams, gels you name it and nothing seems to cure it for good.  I guess it’s in my genes and there isn’t much I can do but keep my skin as clean as possible with a good regimen and control the acne as best I can. The over the counter type cleansers do nothing for me.  I have consulted with doctors, estheticians, holistic practitioners and tried every possible thing they have suggested.  Whatever I use seems to be a temporary fix but nothing (including prescription medication) has a lasting effect on my skin. My biggest issues is clogged pores.

Review and Giveaway: Tumeric Curcumin With Bioperine from Schwartz Bioresearch

As many of you know I have had a rough time with joint and muscle pain since my blot clot diagnosis in 2015.  Unfortunately, because I take blood thinners on a daily basis, many over the counter remedies for joint and muscle soreness are not safe for me to take.  That makes me sad since I know they work as I have taken them in the past.

I received for review a product called Tumeric Curcumin with Bioperine from Schwartz Bioresearch.  Since I could not test the product myself I recruited my husband to test it for my review.

Now you have to understand my husband is one of these people who hates and I mean hates to take even an aspirin when he is sick so it took some convincing on my part.  He has been suffering with joint pain for years but wouldn’t see a doctor or take anything to help his situation.  I convinced him to do some research on Tumeric products and he found out they are safe and non-narcotic so he was willing to give it a try.  It’s been about four weeks now and my husband has felt a significant difference in his joint pain after taking the Tumeric Curcumin with Bioperine.  He’s a happy camper and will continue taking this product for many years to come now that he is feeling so much better.

Review: bObi Classic Robotic Vacuum Cleaner from bObsweep

Have you met bObi?  That is bObi the robotic vacuum cleaner.  Let me introduce to my new bObi robotic vacuum cleaner from bObsweep and tell you about this amazing cleaning tool that every house should have.  This product is going to save me so much time and energy that I am doing the happy dance.

I had the pleasure of reviewing this amazing cleaning tool recently.  You will see in the short video demonstration below on how this product will vacuum your entire house all by itself without you having to lift a finger.  It also has the capability to pick up a small liquid spill.

I received for review the “Classic” model.  There are two models available for purchase, the bObi Classic and the bObi Pet.  You can view more information on both of these models at the bObsweep Website but the basic difference is that the “Pet” model has stronger suction, more forceful brush contact, and increased battery life.

With the 5-in-1 cleaning powers, bObi hits the floor with everything she’s got. Her heavy-duty vacuum extracts dirt and dust while her trio of brushes reel in larger bits and scraps; attach her mop and bObi finishes with a shine. To go the extra mile, bObi’s UV light kills floor bacteria while her built-in HEPA filter traps harmful airborne particles.

Caso Stainless Steel CK-300 Water Kettle Review!

I had the pleasure of reviewing and testing the Caso Stainless Steel Water Kettle today.  We drink ice tea all year around in my house.  Boiling water in a pot for a pitcher of ice tea is a pain so when the folks at Caso offered me this wonderful product to test and review I jumped a the chance.

I received the Model CK-300 to review.  This model holds a little over seven (7) cups of water for use. It has a built in Brita water filter to give you the best possible tasting and cleanest water possible for brewing tea or other beverages.  It has a digital LED temperature display for easy reading. Recommendations for water temperatures for different beverages are suggested in the owners manual and should really be adhered to for best results. The kettle has an auto-shut off feature (which I really liked) not only for safety purposes but it will never burn out the heating element because there is no water in the kettle.  It also has a 30-minute keep warm option built in.  It has a color changing indicator that alerts you to the precise water temperature based on the five (5) pre-settings.

As you can see by the little video I have prepared for you it is convenient and much faster than boiling on the stove which is a great convenience. I will really enjoy having the Caso Stainless Steel Water Kettle in my kitchen and you will too.

Capresso Perk Model 405.05 Review!

My husband and I love coffee.  We have tried so many coffee makers over the years from drip to press and back again.  Each time something new comes out on the market we purchase it hoping to find the best tasting brew.  My husband is and always has been a perk coffee fan and that is what he prefers to drink.  Our electric peculator is quite old and I’m afraid showing signs that it won’t be with us much longer.  So when I was contacted by the folks at Capresso to test and review their Capresso Perk I was thrilled.  It couldn’t have come at a better time.

Sunbelt Bakery Granola Bars (Dark Chocolate Chunk and Almond Sweet & Salty) Review

I had the pleasure of reviewing two new granola varieties by Sunbelt Bakeries recently: Dark Chocolate Chunk and Almond Sweet & Salty.  Both were delicious and my family really enjoyed them. We love granola bars for a quick healthy snack.  I carry one in my bag at all times and my husband and son love them in their lunches for work each day.  Sunbelt products are reasonably priced and contain wholesome ingredients with no preservatives.

They make a large variety of bars including fruit and grain bars as well as the two mentioned above.  You can purchase your Sunbelt snacks in local markets, mass market stores, or on Amazon below.

Give them a try you won’t be sorry you did.


Shark Rocket Complete TruePet with DuoClean Technology (Model HV382) Review!

I had the pleasure to review the new Shark Rocket Complete TruePet with DuoClean Technology recently. As you all know by now I am a huge fan of the Shark/Ninja family of products and I continue to love each and every new product that they manufacture. This is a company who cares about it’s customers and continues to make improvements to better our lives.

I don’t know any one that likes to clean, but unless you are fortune enough to have someone or a service come in and clean your house for you, many of us are stuck with the task ourselves. I too clean my own house and with each passing year, as I get older, I dread it more and more. I have a fairly large house and in my younger years I was able to whip through one floor (bi-level home) in one day but now I’m lucky to get through one room a day. For this reason I am always looking for new and innovative products to help make the task easier and faster. Shark has done it again with the Shark Rocket Complete with DuoClean Technology.
