BzzReview ♥BIC® Soleil® Savvy™♥




BIC® Soleil® Savvy™ Razor


   As some of you may know, I am a member of BzzAgent and receive products and coupons, often for free and in return I express my thoughts, on these products, through Word of Mouth and also through Facebook, Twitter and Blogger.

   Just the Facts

  • Each razor package contains one disposable handle and four refillable cartridges
  • Each handle includes a rubber grip for extra control
  • Blade heads feature flexibility and Vitamin E strips
  • pivoting heads are made to made to glide along a woman's shape and give a super close shave
  • Retail price is $7.49
My Story

   I have tried almost every way there is to remove hair from my legs. I have always stuck with a razor that has a refillable cartridge. My most recent was the very bulky, Schick® Quattro for Women® Trim Style®. With the Trim Style razor, I had to use a very heavy hand to shave my legs and even then, I would have to go over my legs twice to insure that I shaved all of the hairs. 
   When I received the BIC® Soleil® Savvy™ razor with cartridges, I was excited to try something new. They razor was easy to remove from the package and it was easy to place the cartridge head to the razor. I remember using this razor for the first time and feeling the nice, small grip, which was much different from the Quattro Trim Style. I started to shave my leg with the nice clean blade of the Savvy™. I wanted to use a heavy hand, but realized if I did, then I would cause cuts to my skin. I used a light hand and I let the razor glide smoothly over my skin. It was a nice clean shave. With the first use of the razor head, I did not have to go over my skin twice.
   With any razor that I have used, I have experienced redness and ingrown hairs, which I am not a fan of, but I understand that it is my own fault because I do not shave regularly. With this razor, I have actually noticed a difference in the ingrown hairs. Before the Savvy™ razor, I had a whole leg full and now, I only have a few on each leg.
   I am happy that I no longer have to search for the right razor. I feel that I have found a great razor that can benefit my legs rather than hurt them. 
   This razor glides on my skin smoothly, has helped with my ingrown hair problem and is small and very easy to use.

BzzAgent Review: Dr. Scholl's(R) Massaging Gel Insoles♥



Dr. Scholl's(R) Massaging Gel Insoles





As some of you may know, I am a member of BzzAgent and receive products and coupons, often for free and in return I express my thoughts, on these products, through Word of Mouth and also through Facebook, Twitter and Blogger.


Facts:

  • Retails for $12.99
  • Men's sizes 8-13 and women's sizes 6-10
  • Can be used in a variety of shoes
  • Dual Wave Design - soft blue gel cushions with superior shock absorption,while purple gel adds support.
  • Found in the foot care aisle.
  • Money-back guarantee, so there is no risk in trying!



  When I received my Dr. Scholl's(R) Massaging Gel Insoles, I immediately opened up my package. I was excited because my feet ache all the time, no matter what shoes I wear. I read the directions and measured my foot to the insole and tried my very best to cut the insole right. I found that the Gel Insoles are tedious to cut. You have to get it right or the insole will not fit into your shoe exactly how you need it.
  I put my shoes on after fitting the insoles inside and noticed that every time I would walk, I could feel the blue wave design right on my heel. It felt weird to me, but it wasn't in a bad way. My feet did not feel noticeably different right away, but after a couple of days of wearing them in my Sketchers Shape-Ups, I did feel a difference. But, it did not relieve all of the pain and ache in my poor feet.
  I am not completely disappointed in my Dr. Scholl's(R) Massaging Gel insoles, but feel that it would have been best if I was able to wear them over my original Shape-Up soles. It would have given me some added comfort instead of giving me the same support I had with the original soles. I believe it would have made my feet feel so much better than they had previously been feeling.

Children's Claritin(R) Syrup BzzReview



Children's Claritin(R) Syrup

   As some of you may know, I am a member of BzzAgent and receive products and coupons, often for free, and in return I express my thoughts, on these products, through Word of Mouth and also through Facebook, Twitter and Blogger.

Get The Facts:
  • Children's Claritin(R) provides 24-hour relief from seasonal and indoor allergies without making child drowsy
  • Children's Claritin(R) is the #1 Pediatrician Recommended Non-Drowsy Allergy Brand
  • One dose lasts for 24 hours.
  • As well as Syrup, Children's Claritin(R) is also available in Chewables and RediTabs. 
   
   Does your child have itchy, watery eyes along with sneezing and a runny nose? Then, it may be time to give your child 24 hour non-drowsy relief with Children's Claritin(R).


My Story:

   My 3 year old son, Keegan, suffers from seasonal allergy's, just like I do and I asked him to take a dose of the Children's Claritin(R) early one morning. He is not a fan of medicine at all, but I told him that I was feeling that my allergy's were starting up and told him that I was going to take some, so he agreed to take some right along with me.
  I didn't feel a difference until about 30 minutes to a hour. After that time, I was no longer sneezing and neither was Keegan. My eyes cleared up and I didn't feel the sinus pressure that I usually feel when the allergens are around me. I can't say much about my son, it was mainly a regular day for him, except he wasn't stopping to sneeze or scratch his nose. 
   I felt that it did last for 24 hours and the next day I was back to my usual self. I don't always have allergy's, but when the pollen and weed count is HIGH, I start to feel bad. 
   I may take this medicine at night, just before I go to bed, to see if it will have an automatic effect as soon as I wake up in the morning.

  Children's Claritin(R) has helped my oldest son and I with our allergy symptoms. I just wish that there was a Claritin product for 1 year olds! My youngest son also suffers from allegies, but is not allowed to take any product that helps with it.

Philips SatinPerfect Epilator BzzReview



Philips SatinPerfect Epilator

As some of you may know, I am a member of BzzAgent and receive products and coupons, often for free and in return I express my thoughts, on these products, through Word of Mouth and also through Facebook, Twitter and Blogger.

Features:
  • Extra Wide Head
  • Opti-Light
  • Washable Epilation Head
  • Two speed settings
  • Luxury Pouch
  • Variety of attachable heads
  • Tweezers with a light



   I came into the Philips SatinPerfect Epilator BzzCampaign not truly knowing what epilation was all about, but when I read that over time the hair growth on my legs would diminish, I was in! I received my BzzKit and that night I got to work on my legs.
 The Epilator came with a few useful attachable heads, but I started with the original head that was already on it. Because this was my first time using an epilator, I wanted to use the lowest setting possible. I did not prep my skin beforehand, by exfoliating, but I did try the epilator out during the evening time.
  I turned the epilator on and switched it to the low setting, by clicking the button. I started at my ankle and moved the epilator up like I would using a regular razor. I was extremely surprised and shocked at how much pain I felt, even though I used to tweeze in-grown hairs on my legs. For just a couple of minutes, I was not able to keep the epilator on my skin as it did its job. I was having to pull away as the hairs were pulled out. After those few minutes though, my skin became accustomed to the feeling and it was no longer painful for me.
  After one leg was finished, I did notice redness, but was not worried because this happens to me with any type of ravor that I use. I also felt my skin to see how smooth my legs really were and I realized that the epilator does not necessarily pull out ever hair. I do have small, fine hair that the epilator was not able to grab. No one but myself would be able to notice, unless someone was up close and personal with my legs!


  
  Caution:

  Using this type of skin removal can cause in-grown hairs and skin irritations. You should consult your doctor with any questions or concerns you may have about epilation.
  Exfoliation of skin, two day before epilating, will help with the pain. Within weeks of using this type of hair removal, you should see a great difference in your hair growth. The hairs should diminish or look lighter with every use. Enjoy soft and smooth skin over time!

::BzzAgent BzzReview:: Manduka eKO Lite Yoga Mat



Manduka eKO Lite Yoga Mat



As some of you may know, I am a member of BzzAgent and receive products and coupons, often for free and in return I express my thoughts, on these products, through Word of Mouth and also through Facebook, Twitter and Blogger.


Features
  • 7lbs.; 71" x 26" x 3/16"
  • made from non-Amazon harvested, natural tree rubber
  • designed to provide the ultimate combination of cushion and grip
  • an eco yoga mat with no PVC or toxic plasticizers



Christmas came early for me when BzzAgent sent the Manduka eKO Yoga Mat my way via Fed-Ex.  I opened up the box and was so surprised. This yoga mat is a beast! I was expecting a quite a bit smaller mat. What Manduka claims is that the mat is lightweight and travel-friendly. When I looked at the Manduka website, I saw that I might have been sent the original eKO Mat instead. I am absolutely not complaining though, because I will be using this mat at home, only!
My New Years Resolution for this year is to lose the baby weight that I had packed on. I am currently needing to lose 45lbs in order to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight. I have already started to cut back on my caffeine intake and have been drinking more water. Just the other day, while my kids were asleep, I unrolled the Manduka Yoga Mat, laid it in front of the television and turned on Crunch: Super SlimDown, a workout video that combines Pilates and Yoga.
The Yoga Mat did its part really well. The natural rubber and grip kept me from sliding around, but gripped me so much that I had to lift my bottom up and off of the mat each time that I had to move to a new position.
I really felt the burn in my ab area and was so sore the next day.



Thanks to the Manduka eKO Yoga Mat, I don't have to workout on the bare floor. I hope to continue this exercise routine throughout the year and be able to say, at the end, that I have  successfully completed my New Years Resolution of 2012!

::BzzAgent Review:: Cuisinart Smart Stick Hand Blender 200w BzzCampaign




As some of you may know, I am a member of BzzAgent and receive products and coupons, often for free and in return I express my thoughts, on these products, through Word of Mouth and also through Facebook, Twitter and Blogger.


This BzzReview is about the Cuisinart Smart Stick Hand Blend - 200w!


The unique stick design of the Cuisinart Smart Stick Hand Blender makes it easy to blend ingredients in pots, pitchers, bowls, or the clear beaker  that is included. The 200 watt motor operates with a simple one-touch button. Blends drinks, puree's soups, mixes pancake batter in a matter of seconds.


Hand Blender Tips and Hints

  • Cut solid foods into half cubes for easy blending.
  • For recipes calling for ice, use crushed ice (not whole cubes) for best results.
  • Using a gentle up-and-down motion is the best way to blend and incorporate ingredients equally.
  • To whip air into the mix, always hold the blade just under the surface.
  • The 2-cup mixing beaker is microwave- and dishwasher- safe. Designed for easy gripping and drip-free pouring.
  • The hand blender is perfect for frothing milk for cappuccino or lattes.
There are several recipes in the manual. the categories included are: smoothies and drinks, soups, sauces, side dishes, dressings, and desserts.


Kiwi Strawberry Smoothie
   This refreshing smoothie is high in fiber and full of Vitamin C.
Makes one 14-ounce smoothie

1  cup frozen strawberries, partly thawed
1  kiwi, peeled, cut into eighths
1/2  cup fat free vanilla yogurt
1/2  cup fat free milk
1  tsp honey

Place ingredients in the mixing beaker. Insert the Cuisinart Smart Stick, making sure the protective guard is submerged. Blend, using a gentle up-and-down motion until ingredients are well combined, about 30 seconds.

Nutritional information per smoothie:
Calories 286(2% from fat)  Carb. 63g  Pro. 11g  Fat 1g  Sat. Fat 0g Chol. 4mg  Sod. 133mg  Calc. 371mg  Fiber 6g

  





My thoughts
When I had first opened up the box to the smart blender, I thought it was huge! I was honestly thinking that this was going to be a small 'hand' blender.  First use of this blender I noticed there is no actual on and off switch. It has a toggle switch that allows you to blend or pulse by just a simple press of the button. 
One of the problems I found, about the smart stick, is that this blender is very loud. I would have never thought that this little thing would make such a big noise. I have found that most recipes on the internet call for more product that the beaker will not hold, so in order to make a great smoothie, I have down grade to smaller measurements to fit in the Cuisinart beaker.
After getting the ingredients into the beaker, I make sure the blade guard in underneath the liquid and started to blend with up and down motions. It is easy to do, but takes a little extra time to make sure that every piece was blended well. I blend for about 40 seconds, just to make sure.
After blending everything together, I pour the smoothie into a different cup. I then press the release button on the back and remove the blending shaft. Clean up is a breeze. What I have done, is just rinse the shaft off with hot water, then let it dry. I then clean the beaker with hot water and a soapy sponge.
Though there are a couple of problems I have with the Smart Stick blender, these problems do not outweight the easy to use, easy to clean and easy to store quality that the blender has and I believe that I will no longer use a traditional blender for a simple one person smoothie again.
