Keep Wrinkles At Bay

Details:  Paula's Choice 2% BHA Liquid is a leave-on exfoliant.  It removes old skin cells both on the skin's surface and inside the pore.  It helps with acne breakouts, is for all skin types, creates radiant even-toned skin, reduces redness and builds collagen.  It is good for those who have rosacea.  Helps diminish wrinkles.


Review:  Paula's Choice makes wonderful claims to help keep wrinkles at bay, and help for acne breakouts.  I was hesitant to try this, as I had just been using an AHA.  It was love at first try with the BHA.  No stinging, no strong chemical smell.  It made my skin feel hydrated and very soft and silky. Actually AHA's and BHA's only have one molecule different in their makeup.  I vote to use BHA from here on out.

The one thing I didn't like is that my face was now breaking out more than ever.  I assume my clogged pores were now unclogging.  I can live with that.  It did last about 10 days before the breakouts diminished.  However, during this entire time, my face felt smoother than ever before, even after the AHA.

Paula has a booklet titled "20 Beauty Myths Busted!"  In there she describes how to keep wrinkles at bay.  She recommends "regular use of brilliantly formulated sunscreens, exfoliants (AHAs or BHA), moisturizers loaded with antioxidants and cell-communicating ingredients, and retinoids (components of Vitamin A including retinol), among numerous others are your best options, and this is supported by copious research."  She goes on to say that you can save thousands of dollars by not purchasing antiwrinkle and anti-aging skin care products that don't perform like they should.


I've had a very hard clogged pore for several weeks.  Once I started using Paula's Choice 2% BHA Liquid, this has greatly diminished.  Not completely gone yet, but almost.  I was beginning to think this would look more like a mole if things didn't improve.  I don't have that concern any more.

Through BzzAgent I #GotItFree. I was given several samples to hand out and let others try.  Everyone who has tried this has had positive results and comments.  It is a great product.

Pros:  Helps to keep wrinkles at bay.  Face is smoother and softer.  Face feels more hydrated.

Cons:  Didn't like the 10 days of breakouts while pores were unclogging.

My Rating:  Thumbs UP!

Store 'N Go Pill Organizer by Sabi

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
Details:   Sabi is a company that provides many types of pill/vitamin containers and organizers, as well as a few other items to make like easier.  Sabi  is a Japanese word meaning that life's imperfections are what make it beautiful.  Sabi is all about making life more easy and to have everyday moments count.

Review:  The Store 'n Go is also called the Tripod.  It has 3 compartments that sort of roll up together, snap in place, and present a nice little storage container for pills.



The lady that received this wanted it initially to store and hold her pills and keep in her purse.  Later she decided that she didn't want to mess up her routine with how she had her pills currently.  Someone suggested to her to use the Tripod for her fake nails and glue.  Now we had her attention.  This was something that would be convenient for her to use, and know exactly where her nail supplies were in her purse.  She said it works out wonderful for that.


I asked her what she thought about the Store 'n Go if she were to ever use it for her pills.  She said it work very nice.  The lid snaps into place and doesn't appear that it would come loose very easily.  The three compartments would hold several pills.  According to Sabi, they will hold up to 24 fish oil capsules.

You can purchase your Tripod here on Amazon.  You can find Sabi on Facebook, Twitter, and on their blog.

Pros:  Great little container for pills, vitamins, or other items.  Fits nicely in a purse or pocket book.  Like the way it folds up to a smaller container than it really is.

Cons:  None.

My Rating:  Thumbs Up!

Pedometer with Multi-Functions

Details:  Ozeri is a speciality manufacturer of digital products for the modern home.  They offer a large variety of such items.  They even have several different pedometers to chose from.  

Ozeri provided the 4x3 runner pedometer in return for my unbiased opinion.  It records daily steps whether you are walking or running.  It includes the distance, speed, calories, fat burned and exercise time.


You set  your target of how many steps you want to accomplish then it keeps track for you.  This pedometer counts up to 1 million steps with built-in memory for 30 days of activity.  It features a clock, calendar and sports timer.  Comes with clip on strap.  Settings will not be lost when changing batteries.

Review:  I've always liked pedometers, but have yet to find one that lasts very long.  This Ozeri 4x3 Runner is the perfect one for me.  I like to walk.  I want to know how many steps I've walked.  Many of us have heard that we should walk 10,000 steps a day to increase our physical activity.  That's roughly around 5 miles, depending on your stride.  A pedometer is a great way to keep track.  With this particular one, you set your goal within the pedometer and let it keep track for you.

My husband likes to run.  He can take this same pedometer and set it up for him to use and keep track of his goals.  This is a great tool that each of us can use.

The read out on the screen is very legible.  I like all the features it offers.  I got confused trying to set it up, but within a few minutes my husband had it up and running, and we were up and running too.  The sleep mode is a nice feature so we don't have to worry about us forgetting to turn it off.  We just pick it up and it's ready to track our movements.  It comes with a clip to attach to waistbands, pockets, shirts, or whatever.  It is fairly secure, and I haven't had any issues of it coming off like I've had with other brands.  This is water resistant, so if you get caught out in the rain, like I did today, no worries about it getting ruined.

If you are looking for a great little tool to keep track of your motion, whether walking, jogging or running, then be sure to get your Ozeri 4x3 Runner here from Amazon.

Pros:  Great variety of options all in this little pedometer.  I so glad I finally have one that will hold up and last.

Cons: Nothing.

My Rating: A big Thumbs Up!!!

Carafe For Vitamins and Pills by Sabi

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. Details:   Sabi is a company that provides many types of pill/vitamin containers and organizers, as well as a few other items to make like easier.  Sabi  is a Japanese word meaning that life's imperfections are what make it beautiful.  Sabi is all about making life more easy and to have everyday moments count.

The Sabi Carafe offers a convenient top to store pills for the day, and a cup to drink them down with.  The top of the carafe fits snug to keeps pills from spilling out until time to take them.  After taking the pills, the snug lid keeps the water droplets from getting all over if unable to dry it immediately.


Review:  This was given to a person who was about to get something along this line.  They need to take pills throughout the day and didn't always have a cup to drink out of.  This allows them to keep their pills for the day in the top of the lid, and drink from the carafe.  It works out very nicely.  The lid fits tight so when the carafe is placed in bags or drawers, there is no worry of the water getting on everything after drinking. Furthermore, this person likes the fact that the cup part is clear and can be used at their work place.


The lid has a divider to hold  pills of all sizes and shapes.  This is also very convenient for use at bedtime and can be placed on nightstand.  The carafe washes easily and is BPA free.

You can order your Sabi Carafe on Amazon.  You can find Sabi on Facebook, Twitter, and on their blog.

Pros:  Lid has 2 compartments to store pills of all sizes and shapes.  Lid fits snug.  Very convenient to use.

Cons:  None.
