Best Home Products - I had both my daughters through C-Section and afterwards, I wore a belly band to help with the incision and on a side note, lessen the belly pouch, tighten stomach muscles and support my back. When I received the Mamaway postpartum belly band, I looked forward to trying it even though I'm not pregnant. It's nice to see if this is different from the ones I used before. Before I head on over to my review, here is a short description of the product from the company:

1. 12% Polyester, 48% Nylon, 20% Bamboo Charcoal, 20% Rubber
2. Wear right after birth. Can be used straight after birth to first help with uterus and pelvis recovery, then used to tighten the abdominal area as well as back support, as you will be bending down constantly to pick up your baby. Perfectly safe for both natural and c-section. Wide enough to be a corset, soft enough to be a wrap and strong enough to give you back support.
3. Triple Compression. Easy to use 3 step fastening feels secure and comfortably tight. Two extra compression belts to reinforce key recovery areas, giving you an immediate waist line.
4. Comfortably tight. You can wear it all day, everyday, even during sleep. Designed to bend, twist and move with your body and won't ride up, ever.
5. Incredibly stretchy. Breathable Bamboo fibres form a rigid yet flexible material enabling easy, natural movements. Accelerate recovery with added infer-red to improve blood circulation.
6. High quality, durable construction that will maintain its shape, wash after wash.

The Mamaway Postpartum Belly Band arrived neatly packed in a plastic casing. I would say that this product is much better than the one I've used 4 years ago because the material used is soft and smooth and yet it provides a lot of support on the belly. I noticed that it has an extra layer of band that adds more compression and helps the band to stay in place. This belly band from Mamaway provides double support not only to the belly but also my back. It is easy to wear and stretchy and can be adjusted for comfort. The material is hypoallergenic and does not irritate the skin. It can easily be washed with no worries about the material because it maintains its shape and not easily wear off. I am so keeping this for my next baby.

When I take a bath, our bathroom would become foggy, specially the mirror, even when I turn on the exhaust fan. I have to open the door to clear the foggy mirror and now that the weather is colder, opening the door brings in a blast of coldness inside the bathroom. So, when I received the Gurin Dehumidifier, I was excited to try it. Before I head on over to my review, here is a short product description from the company:

The Gurin Electric Compact Dehumidifier uses Peltier Technology (no compressor) which makes it light and quiet. It is perfect for bathrooms, and small to mid-sized rooms where dampness and humidity are a problem. This unit is small enough to easily fit on your desk or workbench. It extracts the moisture from the air and stores it in a spill-proof reservoir. Just plug it in and it quietly dries the air. Features an automatic shut off switch to shut the unit off when the water reservoir is full. When this occurs a"full" indicator light will alert you when the reservoir needs to be emptied. Holds up to 16 oz. CE and UL Approved.

It is small and compact measuring 8.5(H) x 6(W) x 5(D) inches and weighing about 2 lbs. It is so easy to use, just plug it and press the On Button (Green Light).

Specially now that it's getting colder, the mirror would fog up even if I turn on the exhaust fan in our bathroom. I have to wait a couple of minutes and open the door in order to lift the fog from the mirror. When I received the Gurin dehumidifier, I was excited to try it to see if it would help lessen the fogginess inside the bathroom. The Gurin dehumidifier is so quiet and doesn't consume much space. Since our bathroom countertop isn't that big, I like that I can fit it there without having to compromise space. It is quiet, barely a whisper, when working so it's nice. I have to empty the tray every 3 to 4 days because water collects at the plastic bin. I like that it's easy to use and works as it should.

Advanced Color Care System From Arvazillia Review

 Advanced Color Care System From Arvazillia
Click Image fo More Informations

I had my hair colored about 5 weeks ago and ever since, I've used the Suflate Free Shampoo, Conditioner and Hair mask from Arvazallia. I use the shampoo every other day, which is when I wash my hair. The Arvazillia shampoo has a pearly, light greyish color and smells really nice. It smells luxurious and elegant which also leaves my hair smelling nice.

It creates a creamy lather compared to a bubbly one from my previous shampoo. I like how it rinses off clean and doesn't leave any residue on my scalp as well. After rinsing it off, my hair would always be super tangled from my previous shampoo but with the Arvazallia shampoo, my hair is less tangled, though I still have to use the conditioner.

The most important thing is, my hair color hasn't faded yet and still looks vibrant. The Arvazallia shampoo is sulfate and paraben free which really helped my color treated hair from getting dull and brittle. I also like how this hydrated and protected my hair. It helped make my hair manageable and smooth. This is a really nice product which effectively moisturizes and protects my color treated hair.

The conditioner works well together with the Arvazillia Shampoo and leaves my hair feeling smooth. It removes the tangles making it easier for me to comb my hair after taking a shower. The Arvazillia conditioner rinses off quickly and doesn't leave any residues on my hair and scalp. I like how it smells and how it leaves my hair smelling nice.

Since having my hair colored, the Arvazillia conditioner protectedm y hair from getting dull and brittle. My color treated hair remained vibrant and helped it look healthy and shiny. This also provided moisture and hydration my color treated hair needed to remain healthy, shiny, soft and smooth.

 The hair mask came in an 8.45 oz. plastic jar. The product inside has a white color and a paste-like consistency. I use this twice a week. after shampooing, and leave it on my hair for about 5 minutes and then rinse it off. For my below the shoulder length hair, I scoop a small amount and comb it through my hair using my fingers. It rinses off quickly and doesn't leave any residues on my scalp and hair.

What I love about this is the instant softness and smoothness I feel once I rinse this off my hair. It gives my hair the extra moisture to prevent it from being too dry and brittle. I also like how it leaves my hair smelling nice and hydrated.

The rejuvenating hair mask from Arvazillia is also sulfate free so it's safe for my color treated hair. I love how it makes my hair looking healthy and shiny.

When I use often and for longer periods of time, I notice that my wrist would feel a bit rough and callused. Sometimes, my wrist would also feel a bit sore when I use the computer for an extended period of time. So, when I received the CushionCare Wrist Rest Pad, I looked forward to trying it.

CushionCare Wrist Rest Pad

I received the CushionCare Wrist Rest Pad in a box bundled with a Mouse Pad. The Wrist pad measures 18 x 3.3 x 0.4 inches and is made of quality memory foam that is soft and conforms to the weight of the hand/wrist.

It does not deform and will always go back to its original shape even after hours of use. It provides cushion to my hand and wrist while typing thus reducing strain and also pain for prolonged computer use. It helps maintain the natural position/angle of the wrist while on the computer. It is comfortable to use in that the pad does not slide and stays in place thus keeping the hand and wrist also in the right position. I gave the mouse pad to my youngest brother and he is glad to have it because he plays games and is always in the computer. He said that the mouse pad also helps a lot in reducing wrist strain.

I like that both products are effective and I recommend it to anyone who uses the computer often.

When we send packages, I always look for a durable, effective packaging tape because I wouldn't want the contents of my package spilling out during shipment. So, I would often buy the more expensive ones before because of a bad experience with a cheap one. When I was offered to try the packaging tape from Zitriom, I grabbed the opportunity to try it. Before I head on over to my review, here is a quick product description from the company:

Ultra Sticky Tape - Made With Highest Quality Materials Available
- Packaging Tape with High Tech Film technology provides extra strength for package protection
- all-season Adhesive For Excellent Holding Power During Extreme Hot or Cold Temperatures

This packaging tape from Zitriom came in a pack of 6. It included 1 dispenser that has sharp edges and cuts the tape easily. The clear tape measures 1.9 inches wide and 55 yards/roll. Not bad for the price. The tape is a little bit thinner as compared to the other brand that I have at home but when I used it to pack a box, It did not differ from my other tape. It is also sticky and adhered to the box instantly thus securing the box from opening up or spilling the contents. It also did not rip or break easily like some tapes that I have encountered before. So far so good. I have not seen any problems with the packaging tape.

I used to use a plastic cup for our toothbrushes. It does the job but wanted to try something more pretty for our bathroom. When I was offered to try the HSS Heart Shape Stainless Steel Toothbrush Holder, I looked forward to trying it. Before I head on over to my review, here is a short product description from the company:

4 Made of metal,no the gargle cups.

The HSS Heart Shape Stainless Steel Toothbrush Holder has an elegant and at the same time cute design. It is sturdy and looks durable. The stainless steel metal is thick and looks lit it has a good quality. I set it up in our bathroom to organize our toothbrushes and toothpaste. It can fit all 4 toothbrushes (2 adult and 2 kids) and both adult and kid's toothpaste.

My only concern was that there is no covered base underneath the toothbrush holder so water from our toothbrush tends to drip down our counter.  To fix this, I either place a pad of tissue paper underneath or a cloth to absorb the water. There wasn't any cup included too but I was hoped that it came with a cup too because it is kind of hard to find the right cup for this. This will make a nice gift.

I started working a couple of months ago and now that the weather has become cooler, I always bring hot coffee on my drive to work. I leave our home at around 2:20 in the morning so it's really cold. So, I've stocked up on my single serve cups for my Keurig 2.0. When I was given the chance to try the Friendly's Single-Cup Coffee for Keurig, I was excited to try it because it says it's Keurig 2.0 compatible. Aside from that, I was excited to try the fun and dessert-y flavors included in this pack. Before I head on over to my review, here is a short product description from the company:

Now you can enjoy the taste of all your favorite ice cream flavors in your coffee mug. Buttery butterscotch, creamy chocolate marshmallow, decadent Vienna mocha chunk, cool mint chocolate chip-these flavored coffees will satisfy the biggest ice cream craving without all those pesky calories. Try the friendly's ice cream flavored variety pack and savor the sweetness with someone special. This promotion includes a 40 count box of Friendly's Single Cup Coffee for Keurig K-Cup Brewers.  This product IS 2.0 compatible.

Friendly's Single Serve Variety Pack Ice Cream Flavored Coffee

First of all, I tried this on my Keurig 2.0 but it still gave me the error message of these cups not for a Keurig machine. Luckily, I've found a way to use these on my Keurig 2.0 even with the warning message. :)

Friendly's Single Serve Variety Pack Ice Cream Flavored Coffee

Friendly's Single Serve Variety Pack Ice Cream Flavored Coffee

I've tried all 4 flavors and each has this different, distinct flavor which makes drinking coffee fun. My favorite would be the Creamy Chocolate Marshmallow because I love coffee and I have a sweet tooth. I do add creamer here because I can't drink black coffee but the sweetness and the dessert-y taste is definitely there.

Friendly's Single Serve Variety Pack Ice Cream Flavored Coffee

The Vienna Mocha Chunk is a bit more bitter among the 4 flavors and my least favorite would be the Mint Chocolate Chip because I am not a fan of chocolate mint flavors. The butterscotch is a bit sweeter compared to the Creamy Chocolate Marshmallow but tasted good as well.

Valentia Even Glow 20% Vitamin C Serum Review

Valentia Even Glow 20% Vitamin C Serum
Click Image fo More Infos

Best Home Products - I've reviewed a couple of Vitamin C Serums already and what can I say? I'm in love with them. I've incorporated it on my daily routine and I'll continue using it for a long time. Now, I am excited to do a review on another Vitamin C Serum brand because aside from the usual 20% Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid ingredients of the other Vitamin C Serums I've reviewed, the Valentia Even Glow 20% Vitamin C Serum has 4 additional ingredients added to enhance and support the Vitamin C's effect on the skin.

20% Vitamin C helps in brightening your skin as well as improve the texture. Vitamin C is also critical to the production of collagen which helps maintain skin's elasticity and firmness. It is also scientifically proven to reduce oxidative stress protecting you from sun spots, redness, dulness and wrinkles. The Hylarunic Acid allows the skin to retain moisture while simultaneously increasing elasticity and firmness.

So what are the 4 additional key ingredients added to the Valentia Even Glow 20% Vitamin C Serum? Here are the 4 additional key ingredients added and their short description from Valentia.

1 & 2. Organic Rosehip Seed Oil & Organic Sea Buckthorn Oil - These oils promote skin hydration and lock in moisture to protect your skin from signs of aging and improve its beauty and youthfulness. Rosehip Oil specifically has been used in medical communities around the world for those with serious skin ailments and only recently has North America learned to embrace natural solutions from our ancestors. These two organic oils are full of antioxidants and therefore act as the perfect supporting cast for our best friend - Vitamin C

3. Resistem (Plant Stem Cells) - This provides the perfect mix of protection from stress-related aging and promotes skin detoxification. Resistem will help your skin regenerate faster while protecting it from environmental stressors.


4. Green Tea Extact- The catechins in green tea are a potent antioxidant which also contribute to the overall anti-inflammatory and anti-irritant benefits of this ancient health and beauty secret.


Even Glow Serum Vitamin C Serum Antioxidant Treatment Advanced Plant Stem Cells Natural & Organic Ingredients Includes Organic Rosehip Oil & Sea Buckthorn Oil, 1.18 oz

The Valentia Even Glow 20% Vitamin C Serum has a thicker consistency compared to the other Vitamin C Serums I've tried. I like the orange color and the yummy orange scent. :) The natural ingredients in the bottle have a tendency to settle so inverting the bottle and shaking it very lightly for 1 to 2 seconds is a must. The bottle might be small but believe me, this would last a LONG time because you only need a few drops a day.

Even Glow Serum Vitamin C Serum Antioxidant Treatment Advanced Plant Stem Cells Natural & Organic Ingredients Includes Organic Rosehip Oil & Sea Buckthorn Oil, 1.18 oz

This is 5 drops of the Valentia Even Glow 20% Vitamin C Serum. It says to apply a small amount to face so I just dispensed the same amount I usually dispense in the past vitamin c serum I've used.

Since the Valentia Even Glow Serum is a bit thicker, my initial thoughts were it will be a bit heavy on my skin and it will not be absorbed as fast as the other brand I'm using. I was surprised that it was absorbed just as fast (about 15 seconds) and that it didn't leave any heavy residue/feeling on my skin. It also didn't cause any break-outs on my skin which is a plus for me. :)

After using the Valentia Even Glow Serum for a week every morning (my previous routine for my past vitamin c serum was every night but I changed it to every morning), my skin looked brighter and fresh. It made my skin glow and look radiant. It haven't actually vanquish my acne scars and dark spots but it did make them appear lighter on my 1st week of using it.

I love the Valentia Even Glow Serum and the additional ingredients because it is effective and I saw results quickly. The difference wasn't noticeable overnight but in a week, it made a difference already. That's quick enough for me. :)

You can learn more about the Valentia Even Glow Serum on Amazon. It is currently priced at $25 a bottle but it'll last for a long time. I am using it for a week now but I can barely see any difference on the volume.

My 4 year old daughter loves to play pretend. She has a mini kitchen with all the grocery items, veggies and fruits. The Precious Toys Kids & Toddler Pretend Play Shopping Cart from Homeco just completed her collection. Take your shopping list and your teddy bear and get ready to shop. Our durable metal shopping cart looks just like those in real stores. Heavy gauge steel construction includes 360 degree pivoting front wheels, easy-grip handle, and a folding seat so a child and his or her favorite companion can navigate the aisles in style. There are endless play possibilities with this incredibly durable metal shopping cart. Children love playing grocery store; they can collect play food in the shopping cart, roll to the pretend checkout and pay, or stock the shelves with supplies.

Encourage sorting, planning, and motor skills by creating a shopping list with pictures or simple words and then asking a child to fill the order, or ask him or her to put all of one kind of play food in the cart (like frozen foods), then roll to the end of the room, unload it, and return for something else (like fruits and veggies). With sturdy metal construction and pivoting front wheels, this kid-size metal shopping cart toy is the perfect addition to your play grocery store. Easy to maneuver, fun to fill, and built to last for years of pretend play.
