Price range from $14.97-$23.00 for 8oz. YIKES!



First of all I have to say that I love the smell of this shampoo. It’s not what you expect from a dandruff shampoo much less Tea Tree. The tea tree isn’t overpowering. It does feel great on your scalp though. I think it’s the lavender that mellows it out.  I used this shampoo for a few weeks and loved it. My itchy scalp felt relief and the dry patch I get in the fall/winter went away.  I just wish they made an accompanying conditioner. I had to use a detangler and wasn’t happy about it.


My only real complaint is the price. I love it though so I’ll purchase more.


I received this product free for review purposes. All opinions are 100% my oww.  MizD

I’m always on the hunt for a cleansing system for sensitive skin. I came across this face & body wash by Era Organics. It’s formulated for sensitive skin and is also recommended for people who deal with PSORIASIS, ECZEMA, DERMATITIS, ACNE and more without causing pain or irritation. Another reason I opted to try this is because they do not test on animals. :-)

This cleanser contains aloe vera and manuka honey. I’m starting to see more and more products with this honey. As with other products I’ve tried with manuka honey, I’m not too fond of the smell. It’s not bad, i just don’t care for it.

Other ingredients are:

Organic Aloe Barbadensis Gel, Cocamidalpropyl Betaine, Glycerine (vegetable derived), Polysorbate 80, Leptospermum Scoparium (Manuka Honey), Tocopheryl Acetate, Centipeda Cunninghamii (Cehami), Gluconolactone, Sodium Benzoate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Tapioca Starch, Cellulose Gum, Xanthan Gum, Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxide



I used this cleanser on my face only for 5 days. Aside from the smell I was impressed.The smell, I can’t explain it. It’s not unpleasant. It’s just not to my liking. A super strong honey scent maybe?

It rinsed clean, no residue and my face felt super clean. It didn’t dry out. I didn’t feel I need to rush and put on my moisturizer. Up to a few days after I stopped using it, my skin remained clear and felt good. I plan on trying moisturizer from this brand so I’m hoping that by combining the two I’ll have amazing skin!

I received the product mentioned above for free. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. Miz D

I’m not a big wine drinker, but I do a lot of socializing and prefer wine over liquor. I got a Remodia Wine Aerator Decanter to see if that will help. This is what it does.

There are 3 stages of the aeration system that makes your wine taste better almost instantly.

The umbrella-shaped aeration component gently expands your wine, exposing it to the maximum amount of air possible as it flows over, around, and under the wine. This allows the wine to mix with the air and changes the taste to a softer, more enjoyable and palatable experience. Your wine will not only taste better, the scent will be improved, too.





Why does wine have to breathe anyway? Well wine is “alive” in the sense that there are constant chemical reactions taking place, but wine doesn’t breathe in the sense that you and I do. “Breathing” begins the moment a cork is pulled or a twist off is uncapped. But if that’s all you do, the amount of surface area that the wine has that can be exposed to oxygen is only a small size. For more aeration, pouring a glass will help, as will swirling that glass around, but to maximize the “breathing” phenomenon, you’ll want to use a decanter.

I honestly didn’t taste the difference, had I drank it before it “breathed”, but again, I’m not a wine connoisseur. This would make a fantastic gift for someone that is though.





It’s designed to prevent leakage better than other decanters because it prevents any leaking or dripping from pouring your wine too quickly.

Also to prevent a mess, just set the aerator in the rubber stand until ready to wash. The Remodia is easy to clean, store and is dishwasher safe.

To me this is the best wine aerator for red wine, but can be used for white wine as well.
this would make a fantastic gift for a wine enthusiast – comes with pouch and GIFT BOX. :-)



I was given this product for review purposes. All opinions are my own. ~D
