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’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. :-)

This is a review for Maple Holistics Dead Sea Mask. It can be used my Women, men and teens.

Enriched with Organic Mineral Youth Formula to Balance Oily Skin, Remove Acne, Wrinkles & Exfoliate – Anti Aging Facial Cleanser Heals Oily Skin, Psoriasis, Minimizes Pores, Cleansing & Detoxifying Scrub.

I got a 9oz tub.

I got this picture off Amazon because I lost the one I took on my camera.

 

 

The mask is creamy mud that contains Dead sea mud (from Israel), Almond essential oil, Organic Clary sage, Organic Lavender, Organic German chamomile, Biodynes EMPP and Pseudocollagen. I was worried at first (just scanned ingredients) that it would burn like most masks. I have sensitive skin and didn’t want to end up with a red blotchy face.

I was impressed with how cooling it was and how easy it was to spread on my face. It didn’t take a while lot either. I left it on for probably 20 minutes. I was reading and forgot it was on! Most masks leave me running to the sink in 5 minutes frantically scrubbing them off!

When I went to rinse it off, that’s just what I did, rinse it off. I didn’t have to vigorously scrub it off. My face wasn’t read or blotchy and felt SUPER soft and clean.

My only complaint is I that I had a slight break out on my jaw line. I wasn’t surprised though. Most products break me out BIG TIME.  I used some toner and my morning it was gone.

Bottom line: I LOVE this mask and now use it twice a week. The breakouts have ceased and my skin looks great. I will be purchasing it again!

If you read my monthly posts on Snail Mail freebies you may notice there are a few things there that I’ve won on Contest/Sweeps. I enter just about everything I see on Facebook, Twitter & Pinterest. Yeah it can be tedious, but hey, I spend WAY to much time online. You don’t have to though. Just set a little time each day to enter away. One think I also do is bookmark giveaways that allow you to enter daily.

I’ve decided to post my winnings on this blog separate  from my monthly freebies. I just want to point out that people do win if you just enter!

 

I won this in September on Facebook from Desert Essence. All I had to do was like and comment on the designated post. I won Pumpkin Spice Hand Repair Cream! It’s a generous size too, no travel sample. :-)

 

 

 

 

 

 

A few weeks ago I won what I thought was a bag of Pretzle Crisps. All I had to do (on FB) was tell them my favorite way to eat them. I said something boring like “I like them with laughing cow cheese wedges. Well 3 days ago this is what I got on my doorstep from UPS.

8 FULL SIZE bags of each flavor they make, two coozies and a large heavy duty (not plastic or tarpish) reusable tote.

 

Aside from braging I’m urging you to win. If you see a post I’ve shared on Facebook or Twitter ENTER!
