Abco Tech Water Resistant Wireless FM Radio Bluetooth Shower Speaker

abcotech_weblogo

 

We received the Abco Tech Water Resistant Wireless FM Radio Bluetooth Shower Speaker several weeks ago.  My husband absolutely LOVES this speaker.  He said it makes his shower so much better.  It sticks to the shower, and doesn’t slide or anything.  Stays in one place.  The sound is fabulous, loud enough to hear over the shower water.

SDC14796Joe said he doesn’t know how he survived before the Abco Tech Water Resistant Wireless FM Radio Bluetooth Shower Speaker.  He said his showers were boring and dull, but now he has a reason to enjoy his shower.

 

“The Abco Tech Waterproof Wireless Bluetooth Shower Speaker & Hands-Free Speakerphone is compatible with all Bluetooth devices, iPhone 5, and all Android devices. This Bluetooth activated device is the industry standard for playing your music while taking a shower. With this device, you can experience the new wave of Bluetooth technology. Connect to all Bluetooth capable devices to listen to your favorite music or take advantage of the built in call answering feature for use as a hands-free speakerphone. It features convenient and responsive buttons for music and/or call control, as well as auto pairing that allows you to connect to the device from longer ranges. Features: IPX4 Grade Waterproof speaker, playback time of 15 hours per charge, extremely lightweight at 12 ounces, 3W output rechargeable battery, frequency response: 100Hz-20kHz, built-in Bluetooth 3.0 + EDR receiver, distortion: <1.0%”

 

We will continue to use this speaker for years to come, and when my 3 year old is old enough to enjoy it, he will too.  My 17 year old already enjoys it more than her dad.

When the town’s villain, Archibald Snatcher (Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley), comes up with a plot to get rid of the Boxtrolls, Eggs decides to venture above ground, “into the light,” where he meets and teams up with fabulously feisty Winnifred (Elle Fanning). Together, they devise a daring plan to save Eggs’ family.

CapriClear Spray On Moisturizer

capriclearI received CapriClear Spray on Moisturizer several weeks ago.  I gave it to my mom because she has super sensitive skin.  She said that CapriClear put moisture back into her skin.  She is super pleased with this product.  CapriClear is a spray on product.  It’s super easy to apply, and no sticky mess follows putting it on.

CapriClear retails for $19.99 for a 5.2 ounce bottle.  Which is very generous.  Created by Dr. Betty Bellman, a leading Miami, Florida-based dermatologist.

 

“Patented formula has a single, natural ingredient fractionated coconut oil (also known as caprylic/capric Triglyceride), which is extracted from whole coconut oil. The purest, most stable form of coconut oil available, it offers all of the ingredient’s skincare benefits, without the fragrance.”

Scar Away

scaraway logo

 

scarawayI received some Scar Away a few weeks ago, and I gave it to my Sister in Law, Angel, to test out.

She said she loves Scar Away.  It comes in a 10g squeeze container, and SRP is $29.99.  She said it’s every bit worth the price.  Her scars started seeing relief in just 2 1/2 weeks.  This is the fastest I’ve heard of any scar healing product working.  She’s tried many scar removing products.  She says she will be going to Walgreens to buy Scar Away from now on.

 

“Scar Away®  Scar Repair Gel , featuring patented Kelo-cote®  technology, carries the only patented, transparent, self-drying 100% silicone gel designed to improve the appearance of scars and prevent abnormal and excessive scar formation. The elegant, transparent gel offers convenient application for custom scar prevention and treatment that can begin the moment a wound has healed or sutures are removed.”

 

Here’s some facts:

 Improves the appearance of hypertrophic (red, raised) and keloid scars resulting from surgery, burns, C-sections, cuts and injuries, cosmetic procedures, and trauma

Also helps relieve itching and pain associated with some scars

Works on both old and new scars of any shape or location

Once dry, sunscreen or makeup can be applied over gel

Odorless, transparent, breathable, and lightweight; suitable for all ages and skin types, including children and those with sensitive skin

Inateck Bluetooth Speaker

inateck

 

wireless speakerI recently received the Inateck Bluetooth Speaker, and I gave it to my father in law to try out.  He LOVES it!  He said the sound is clear.  Also, it is loud enough that he can hear it without problem.  And with it being wireless, it’s easy to keep out of the way, and not by a plug.  The Inateck Bluetooth Speaker, shown to the left, is a great price at just $25.99.

There is a place to stick your ipad, ipod, etc on top of the speaker so that it’s in a safe place.  The speaker comes with the USB cord, incase you want to plug it in.

Inateck is a great company with a lot of great merchandise.  I can’t wait to get the USB Hub from them, that I’m going to order.

Inateck is my new go to brand for all my wireless product needs.

The Inateck Bluetooth (wireless) speaker will definitely be used for a long time in my father in law’s home.  He didn’t have a speaker before Inateck, but he had listened to my husband’s speaker, and he loves his Inateck speaker and has since opening it.

Nicole Made This ~ Handmade Products

nicole made this

 

nicole made thisI received a nice package from Nicole Made This a few weeks ago.  I gladly gave the products to my 17 year old, Sarah, to try.  She Loves them!

Nicole Made This is all hand blended items, made by Nicole.  Everything is blended fresh, and you get instructions on how to store each item.  Sarah’s favorite item is the Face Cream.  She said it makes her face feel so smooth, instead of dry, like it usually is.

The Balm Bar is my favorite, though it’s in Sarah’s possession.  It’s like a perfume bar, but totally vegan!  You can dab it on your wrists, your neck, or anywhere to give you a fresh smell on those hot, sticky days.

The Facial Mask is a must have for my mommy.  She took it from Sarah.  She said she needs it more…hahaha.   She said it makes her feel, “young again”.  And gives her face a fresh feel.

 

“My mission is to produce handcrafted personal care products in an artisanal manner – using the finest ingredients available and blended in small batches to ensure quality – resulting in nothing less than an affordable luxury, and because the products are naturalLy derived and vegan-friendly, they are a responsible indulgence.”

These products all have realistic prices (not overpriced).  Go to Nicole’s site to take a look (link below).

Eat Smart Digital Scale

eatsmart

 

SDC14802I received the Eat Smart Precision CalPal Digital Scale about a week ago.  I love it.  It’s the most awesome scale I’ve ever owned.  This will be my last scale.  Batteries are included.  My mother in law really wants this scale, but I gave her my other Eat Smart Scale instead.  She was happy with that, because Eat Smart is such a good brand.

None of us like weighing ourselves, but with an Eat Smart Scale, you won’t mind so much.  They are durable and cool!

  • At each weigh in, the scale will display three readings: current weight, Body Mass Index, and Estimated Caloric intake needed to maintain current weight.
    Automatic User Identification: privately stores personal data for up to 4 users and automatically identifies the person standing on the scale.
    Sleek design and easy to read display, its got the “smart scale” look.

Why the CalPal Makes a Great Gift – An exceptional value at $35.00, the Precision Cal reinforces the belief that weight management is not a quick fix but part of a long term commitment to a healthy lifestyle. This scale is perfect for diverse groups of people including:

  • Health Conscious – Stay committed by using in conjunction with a food and exercise journal.
    Athletes – Monitoring weight loss or gain will help athletes perform at their highest level.
    Weight Loss – Setting goals and monitoring your progress provides continuous motivation and accountability.
