Health Labs Nutra Cranberry Concentrate


After having a particularly bad UTI I was told to try Cranberry Concentrate. I have taken a few different brands in the past. After trying this brand I am impressed. These are triple strength softgels. They are easy to swallow. There is no smell or taste. I do not have to take near as many as some of the other brands, which I really like. The recommended dosage is 1 to 3 pills a day not 6 or 8. I don't want to spend my day taking pills. I have had no side effects while taking these either. There are 60 pills in the bottle so I can get 1 to 2 months out of the bottle taking the lowest dose. I personally feel like these are some of the best I have taken. I can actually read the very short list of ingredients and know what they are. If you have a soy allergy though stay away from these as they do contain soy.

I received this at a discount but am not required to write a review, but  I decided I should let people know about my experience with it.

Bug Bite Thing




It may be winter time according to the date, but I live in Florida. There are bugs year round and most of them do bite. The other night my Grandson was here and playing outside, he is 2. He was bit on the side of his leg by I think a mosquito. So I got to try out this Bug Bite Thing. 

It is very easy to use. push the side levers down, place it over the bite and pull up on it like a syringe. I pulled until it gave me a lot of resistance then held it for about 30 seconds. It seemed that a lot of the bites swelling went down and for the next couple of hours that the kids were here he never scratched or bothered with the bite again.

My Grand Daughter who is 4 also got a bite on her arm. She kind of flipped out when the I suctioned the Bug Bite Thing. Not that it hurt but I guess I should of let her experiment with it for a second. It was new and different and she felt the pull of it like most kids got scared I guess. 

This Bug Bite Thing does seem to work and it so much better and easier then sprays and creams that only seem to work until it dries into the skin. My Grand Son never did scratch his bite again and it was totally gone the next day.  This also needs no batteries.

Reflective, Ultra-Portable and Small 100-Piece First Aid Kit


I honestly think that every home needs a good first aid kit. Not just a box of bandaids. Most people spend more time at home then out of the home and I know around my house there is so many more ways for me and my family to get hurt then at work, school, shopping or other places. My husband is the worst with getting boo boo's. We also have 9 Grand kids who spend a lot of time with us. So I go through a lot of bandaids. but you never know when you are going to need more advanced medical supplies as well. This kit comes with 100 pieces of medical supplies from bandaids to cold compresses,and everything in between. You can be ready for just about any type of small emergency and some larger ones until you can get medical treatment. This is also great for taking in the car on outings and tips.
 I also feel like this would make a great gift, especially for families with kids or if you are like me a big klutz.

Premium Cupping Massage Kit by Emerge



This is my first time using a cupping massage kit, so I cannot compare it to others. But I can say it seems to do the trick. I have a spot on my leg that give me a lot of pain. I used the larger of the cups on it and it did seem to ease the pain some. This is simple to use. Choose the size that is right for the area that is giving pain place it on the area and pinch the top while holding it down on the area to get suction. You do not need to leave it on long and you can do several quick suctions to get the blood flowing to the area of pain. These are a silicone cup. They are easy to squeeze. These can be rinsed off in warm soapy water to be cleaned. There are 5 assorted sizes in the set and they come ina  nice drawstring bag. The cups stack together as a space saver.

Nascent Iodine Concentrated Liquid Drops for Best Absorption - Ultra6 Nutrition



When my Daughter was 13 she developed a tumor on the outside of the right side of her thyroid. The doctor removed the right half of her thyroid. They figured she was young enough that her left half would kick into gear and take over enough to not have to put her on thyroid medicine. This did not happen I guess. She will gain a good bit of wait all of the sudden and then she will loose a whole lot of weight. Her doctors suggested she take iodine to stabilize her. Since her thyroid goes both ways she cannot take one pill or the other. I ran across this iodine and she has been taking it for a few weeks now. She is able to put the drops on her tongue, it has a kind of sweet taste and she washes it down with water or juice. I am not positive this will help but it is a easy fix if it does.

3 Pack Mini Sports Stress Balls Set by Perfect Life Ideas





I had surgery on my hand a couple of months ago and need all the help I can get to get my hand back to the way it should be. My doctor has suggested stress balls in order to work my hand with low impact. These balls are a little big for my hand though, but the kids are in love with them. My Grand Son who is 2 has a thing for balls especially sports balls. When he saw these he thought he was in Heaven. He has been playing with them for days now and even sleeps with them. The balls are soft and squishy. These would work as they are supposed to for say my husbands hands, which I guess being sports balls they are more geared towards men. But for the kids they are great. I don't have to worry if they do toss them in the house about breaking things like a regular ball.

Hydracentials Neoprene Bottle Holder With Adjustable, Detachable Strap





My husband and I do a lot of walking. We walk every evening after dinner. We take weekend trips to walk around historical locations, and stuff like that. We live in Florida and it is pretty much always hot. Staying hydrated is very important. I personally do not like drinks once they are warm and I always have a drink with me. With this awesome bottle holder from Hydracentials I can carry my water bottles with me and the neoprene holder helps to keep the drinks cold longer . Neoprene has a smell to it when you first receive it, it is just the way it is. Usually you can tell what it in the package before you open it from the smell. This water bottle holder all though it did have a smell to it, it was not over powering like other neoprene items I have received. I did run this through the wash machine before I used it and it pretty much took all of the smell away. This comes with a long adjustable shoulder/neck strap. The strap is long enough to carry on your shoulder, wear around your neck and even wear cross body style. The strap is also removable. The bottle holder itself is waterproof so when my water bottles starts to drip it all stays inside of the holder instead of dripping all over me. There really is nothing I don't like about this water bottle holder. The best part, I have my water and I am hands free.

Head Ease Synergy Essential Oil Blend (Headache & Migraine) 10 ml. from Plant Guru




I am a true believer in the haling qualities of Essential Oils. I have them in diffusers in ever room of my house. I wear a diffuser necklace all the time, and even have a diffuser in my car.

I have tried a few oils by Plant Guru and I love them all. Their one scented oils and their blends are both awesome. The oils are 100% pure oils. They give a great scent. They come in amber glass bottles that help protect the oil from harsh lighting.

This Head Ease oils is great and really does help when I have a headache. I suffer from horrible migraines that can last days. This oil with just a couple of drops in a diffuser or in my necklace dos help ease my head ache. Be aware that if you use to much it can make a headache worse,, but that is with any strong oil. You should always start with 1 drop at a time until you get the right amount. This goes with any oil though.

This head ease oil contains a blend on Lavender Dalmatia, Peppermint, Wintergreen, Frankincense, Marjoram, and Spanish rosemary. It smells awesome. I love it even when I don't have a headache.

PRO-SYS® Kids Toothbrush - Ages 2-5






As a Nana to 11 Grand kids I have a lot of kids in and out of my door. A lot of them spend a lot of nights as well. So I keep toothbrushes for each child. Most of the ones we have are the cutesy kind with cartoon characters that each child has picked out for themselves. When I replaced some of their toothbrushes with these they were like Nana how come you didn't get me Frozen or Sponge Bob. So they don't have the kid factor to them. They are brightly colored. They are easy for the little ones to hold in their hands. The bristle bed is small enough to get in their mouths but large enough to actually clean the teeth. I really like the fact that they are about the same size a other toothbrushes. I keep caps on the toothbrushes since the kids are not with me daily, that way the bristles are protected from dust and germs. It is unclear if these are the same as the adult brushes I have used int he past from Pro Sys about them being bacteria resistant but I would imagine they are.

Mosiso - High Accuracy Digital Bathroom Scale with Blue Backlight Display





I had one of those scales with the round thing up top that rolled around to show you the weight, but it was hardly ever right any more. I wish I could loose 10 lbs in 10 seconds but sadly that just won't happen. When I was offered this scale to test I was thrilled.

This scale has a nice clear glass platform that you stand on and is safe for up to 400 pounds. They is a nice stainless steel base under the platform.  There is a really nice and large LED  display that is very easy to read. Even without my glasses I can see it. The display is blue with black numbers. The scale works on 4 AAA batteries which are included. The scale seems very accurate. Unfortunately I no longer loose 10 pounds in 10 seconds.

You also get a awesome tape measure. The tape measure is very easy to hold onto with the t shape of it. The tape folds into a slot that can be slipped downwards to make reading the measurements easier. It has inches on one side and centimeters on the other.

B1ST Sport Breathable Headband Elastic Exercise Sweatband Set






Really great headband. My husband and I walk every night after dinner and do a lot of walking on the weekends. It is HOT here in Florida with heat indexes well above 100 degrees.

I have worn this headband while walking in the evenings since I received it and it great. It does keep sweat from rolling down my forehead, and does not pull my hair at all, and I have a lot of hair. I wet it let night and wore it and will be wetting it each time as it does seem to help keep me a little cooler.

The wrist sweat bands are great too. They give my wrists a little bit of support and I have been wetting them before we go on our walks. They have seemed to help by keeping me a bit cooler and when my face is really hot or sweaty they wipe the sweat and cool me as well. This also comes with a set of glow in the dark rubber bracelets. We try to be back before dark but just in case these will help me to be seen.

I did toss the headband and the wrist bands in the washer with no problems at all. They colors did not bleed or fade and neither of them had any shrinkage.

Natural Mosquito Repellent Bracelet by BITE FREE




I live in Florida and the mosquitoes take over most of the year day and night. I also live in the middle of a National Forest and we are surrounded by different lakes. Going outside to check the mail is a battle sometimes. You come in itching from head to toe. I personally love being outside. I like to work in my yard, my husband and I take a walk every day after dinner, and my Grand Kids love to come visit Nana and Pop Pop and like to play outside. None of like to get bit. There are also other bugs outside most of which bite as well. These bands have been a lifesaver the last few days. We can go outside and not be chewed on.

These bands are soft to the skin. They are very adjustable and can be worn on the wrist, ankle, put in a pocket, or straps to clothing. For the smaller kids I put one through the back neck area and string it out through the sleeve then snap it into a band. That way they cannot get it in their mouths or take it off and play with it. These are made out of natural essential oils. Each band can last up to 120 hours of protection. These come in a 6 pack and are in a  zip top bag. When we come back inside I put the bands back in the bag to keep them potent for the next time we go out.
So far I am very happy with these bands. None of us has had any reaction to the oils in the band, but the mosquitoes have been leaving us alone.

Coccyx Orthopedic Memory Foam Seat Cushion




This is a very nice cushion. It really does give you that extra bit of comfort but also holds your body in the position it was meant to be in to help relieve the stress we all put on our bodies.

The only problem I have with it is the material on the top of the cushion is a little rough when setting on it in shorts. It is fine when you have pants or a skirt on that covers the cushion but setting bare legged on it kind of digs and is stratchy to my legs. Other then that it is very comfortable to me.

It is very thick unlike some of the other memory foam pads I have seen and used. There is an opening in the center which would be great for hemorrhoids. It is raised in the center front between the leg area and raised also at the back producing almost a bowl like effect for your bottom.

The pad is about 18 inches wide, 15 inches from front to back, and about 5 inches thick at it's thickest point.  This is a great cushion for chairs or in cars. This will also lift you up if your chair is too low for your desk. I do spend a lot of time setting at my desk and this cushion as made it more comfortable.

Mosquito Repellent Patch Infused With All Natural Lemon Eucalyptus and Essential Oils




I live in Florida and in the middle of a National Forest to boot. All year long we battle mosquito's. We spend tons of money on bug lights, yard sprays, citronella candles, and personal repellents. Although I have not found the perfect 100% repellent yet, while using these bug patches I have noticed that I can walk outside and not be swarmed.

These are so easy to use. Just scratch the surface on the patch, peel it off the cardboard backing and stick it on your clothing or skin. The smell is not awful, it does not leave your skin oily and sticky, and is so much nicer then using a spray. Works great even with the smaller kids. I usually stick on patch to the center of the back of their shirts and let them go.I chose the center of the back of the shirt since they cannot reach that area and I don't have to worry about them getting it off and playing with it or putting it in their mouths. The glue on the back of the patches is quite sticky and does hold well on clothing and skin as well. For adults it usually takes 2 I put one on my shoulder area and one down towards my ankle. These work for about 8 hours once they have been activated by scratching the front surface of the patch. I will be buying more.

Aennon Premium Cool Mist Ultrasonic Humidifier w/ Aroma Essential Oil Diffuser




Really nice humidifier and diffuser. Great for large or small rooms. Very easy to use as well. This humidifier holds 1.3 liters of water and will run about 7 hours.

Add a couple drops of peppermint and it will help you breath better when you have a cold or even with allergies.

Easy@Home Digital Bluetooth Body Fat Smart Scale with App




This is my first Bluetooth scale and it is an amazing idea for those really into health and fitness. Download a app to your phone and this scale will report all of your stats directly to your phone. This scale is really a great way to stay on top of your health and fitness. And it is so easy as well. Just stand on it a couple seconds and it does all the work.

I wear glasses if I want to see and I can make out the numbers without my glasses, barely but then again I can barely make out anything without my glasses.

The base is made of tempered glass and can safely hold up to 400 pounds, so I have no worries about standing on it with my current weight which is no where near 400 pounds.

In just a few seconds this scale can measure your weight, body fat, body water, body muscle and bone mass. It ill send all the data to the app on your phone. You can use the scale without using the blue tooth function as well. There is an app for both Iphone and android.

Meaiguo Non Slip Skid Toe Yoga Pilates Socks




Very comfortable socks. These socks are great. The rubber design on the bottom does not let me slip and slide. I am not crazy about toe socks but while doing yoga they are great. Really helps when doing certain moves. The socks are thin and I like that. Bulky socks doing yoga can be a hindrance to you. I am by no means a yoga guru I am actually just really getting started. I have only been doing yoga a few months, and to some extent I am still in the trial and error phase. These socks are a good thing, so will continue using them. I have put these socks in the washer and dryer with no problems at all. I use a cool dryer on them, but I did gt a pair mixed with a regular heated load and they came out fine as well. There are 4 pairs in the pack, purple, pink, black and grey. The socks have not shrank in the dryer, the colors have not bled or faded either. The full bottom of the sock as well up the heal are coated in the gripper design. The heal being coated as well is very helpful at times. Other yoga socks I have do not have the grippers on the heal are.

Dilanni Waist Cincher Body Slimmer Shaper Belt




This is a great waist trimmer. It is very comfortable to wear. I actually like this type better then the hooks and eyes. This one velcro's around you. The velcro is so much more adjustable and easier to put on then the hook and eye type. I have carpal tunnel in both wrists and cubital tunnel in my elbows so pretty much doing anything tedious with my hands is out of the question at the minute. This one I can put on with out the embarrassment of having to ask my husband or daughter for help, or doing art and having to rest my hands to finish getting it closed. This waist cincher is also very comfortable to wear. It gives you an instant hour glass shape. The best part is you can still breath while wearing it. you d not have to cinch it real tight to get that hour glass.

It is also great for back pain. In the back of the cincher there are 4 reinforced acrylic bones that keep your back straight. Plus the wide elastic band around the outside of the cincher helps with back pain also.
