Mr ROS Mens Daily Multivitamins Pack

My husband is a big believer in taking vitamins on a daily basis. He is 60 and has no health problems at all so I have to admit he may be right. Don't tell him I said that. Every Sunday evening he fills one of the pills boxes for the week with his different vitamins for the week. When I saw these Men's Daily multivitamin packs by Mr. ROS I figured we would give them a try. He can now have all of his vitamins and not have to go through dragging all the bottles out on the table and filling each day in his 7 day pill box. He can just pull out one of the packs every morning and be done with it.

Each packet comes with 3 capsules, 3 tablets, and 1 soft gel. These include multivitamins, mineral complexes, essential fatty acids and herbal extracts. With  full days supply of most nutrients needed to live a healthy life you will see benefits in energy levels, faster recovery from fatigue and stress, ensure healthy bones, eyes, relax your muscles, boost your metabolism, eliminate free radicals through potent antioxidant action, and a lot more.

My husband has been taking these about a week now. So far he has had no adverse reactions to any of the pills, and is enjoying not having to fill his weekly pill box. There is a 30 day supply, each is prepackaged, just pull out a packet, cut the top off and done.

Curad Sooth Plus Bandages

I was sent samples of the Curad Sooth Plus Medium Non Stick Pads, Medium Rolled Gauze, and Large Gauze Pads, and a roll of Curad Sensitive Skin Paper Tape.  I was raised with Curad and have always trusted their brand. I am had not tried the Sooth plus before getting my samples but I have to say they are great. My husband has very thin skin and is always getting cuts. A lot of bandages stick to the cuts but not these non stick pads. The rolled gauze that I put over the pad also did not stick to his skin.  I love how well the baking soda helps to sooth the wound and really does fight odor. The bandages I have used in the past would allow the blood to smell and also the sweat and dirt my husband gets into every day. Changing his bandages were not fun at all from the smells. I did not have that problem using these bandages. I will continue using Curad. I can;t wait to see what they come up with next in wound care.

Thank you Crowdtap and Curad for introducing me to thes great bandages.

BeLive Probiotics Sugar-Free Gummies Supplement, 90 Count

I have a lot of stomach issues and have thought about taking probiotics multiple times. I have tried some but have never stuck with them since I had not seen or felt much of a difference and I hate to take pills. I decided to try these gummies.

They taste great they have both orange and strawberry flavored gummies in the bottle I can take 2 of the same flavor or 1 of each. The adult dosage is 2 gummies and Children over 3 take 1 a day. Gummies are easier for me to stick with for some reason then just taking a pill, and they taste good.

Since I started taking these pills I have not had some of the stomach upset and other issues as I was having before starting these. These gummies are sugar free, soy free, nut free, egg free, milk free, and Gluten free, so I don't have to worry about them adding things I don't need. There are 2.5 billion CFU of probiotics in each gummy so by taking 2 a day you are getting 5 billion CF probiotics each day.
There are 90 gummies in the bottle, so they will last for 2 1/2 months at the adult dosage.

Advanced Thyroid Support Formula Supplement with Iodine and L-Tyrosine (120 Capsules)

My Daughter had to have half of her thyroid removed when she was 15 due to a tumor growing on the outside of it. The doctors did not want to put her on thyroid meds since her body would become dependant on them.. They decided that at her age and having half of the thyroid it would start producing enough on its own without the meds. The thyroid does produce but just quite enough. The doctors still do not want to put her on meds so she has been taking a thyroid supplement for a few years now. Her thyroid levels do tend to bounce around when she has bloodwork down but the levels are never low enough or to high to warrant the meds. The Doctors did suggest taking a supplement. This is the first time she has tried this particular brand. She has been taking them a few weeks now and has had no problems at all with them. There is no flavor or aftertaste to these pills. She has not experienced any side effects either. The pills are easy to swallow also. There 120 capsules in this bottle which will last 2 months since you take 1 in the morning and 1 at night. We will be buying more of these.

#Natrogix Thyroid Support Formula (60 Capsules)

My Daughter at the age of 14 had an egg sized tumor that wrapped itself around the right half of her thyroid. The doctors had to surgically remove the tumor but with it being so wrapped around the thyroid they had to take the whole right half. They also decided with her age and because they left half of the thyroid they did not want to put her on meds. Now she is an adult and the half of her thyroid does not seem to be doing enough on its own, her levels are messed up when she has blood work but the Doctors still do not want to put her on meds since the levels can be hypo one time and hyper another. Her doctor has told her to take Thyroid Support meds. She has tried many different brands over the years. Some have seemed to help others not so much. We have yet to see how well these will work since she needs to take them for at least a couple months to get the full benefits. We do have to say these are very easy to swallow, there is no smell, taste, or after taste with these pills. She does not get any stomach upset or anything. She takes 2 pills in the morning and goes on about her life.  These pills also help with her mood swings, which is a thyroid issue. She is quite happy with these pills. there is a months supply of 60 pills in this bottle. The lid is not childproof so make sure to keep them away from children.

Fire & Ice Therapy Packs

These awesome Fire & Ice pack are perfect for any type of pain. These come in a 10 pack. I personally put 5 in my freezer and left 5 in the box in my medicine cabinet. These are reusable. You can freeze these to help with swelling, sunburn, and other types of pain where cold is needed to help. Stick one in the microwave for about 10 seconds to use for muscle aches and pain and any other pain you would use heat for. These packs are filled with a blue gel. They have fabric on the back to keep the heat or ice from being directly on your skin. They are very flexible so you can use them anywhere on the body. These are about 3 inches across. You could use more then 1 for larger pain areas and put them on with a wrap to hold them in place.

Yestone C6 Fitness Tracker with Heart Rate Monitor, Bluetooth Sports Wristband IP67 Waterproof

I have a very fast heart rate and my doctor wanted me to keep track of it. I have  blood pressure monitor that does show the heart rate like most of them do but it is very uncomfortable to be taking my BP a few times a day my arm gets sore. So i decided a fitness tracker would be the way to go. I have bought a couple of the cheaper versions and I just don't feel like I get an accurate reading. When this one arrived I used this fitness tracker to take my heart rate and then immediately used my BP monitor to get my heart rate. They were the same!! So yeas I am thrilled with this fitness tracker.

This tracker will do more then just give me my heart rate. It has a pedometer, a lap swimming mode, a clock, an alarm, a reminder, and more. There is also an app you download to help give you a record of your fitness training or your heart rate in my case.  The fitness tracker is bluetooth enabled so you don't have to hook it to your phone or computer to transfer the data, just sync them and go.  The tracker has a rechargeable battery in it and comes with the charger. I charged mine fully and so far it has been 3 days since I charged it and it is still running fine.  The band oon ti is very soft and comfortable to wear. You do not need to have it really tight in order for it to work.

Yes I am very happy with this fitness tracker. I am so glad I found one that works without having to spend a ton of money. Oh and I love the purple band I chose.

Simply Essentials BEST TWEEZERS SET FOR INGROWN HAIR Includes CASE and Ebook

My husband is the lead int he maintenance department at the plant he works for.  They build the huge walk in freezers you see in restaurants, on ships and at theme parks. These are partially made of steel. There are tine shards of steel everywhere at the plant and he is climbing in and out of the machines daily. He comes home with steel splinters in his hands and other parts of his body from climbing arun in the machinery. Having a great pair of tweezers is a must have to get the splinters out. Flat eyebrow type tweezers are useless. I am so happy to have this set of tweezers. These have long needle type points at the end so we can actually get to the splinter without having to damage or cut into the skin. I feel that these tweezers are a safer way to remove the splinter. These are also great for ingrown hairs. They are made of stainless steel. They are very light weight and flexible enough to get a good pinch on the splinter or hair.

Lifestance Blackhead Remover Pimples Comedones Splinter Extractors with Tweezers 5 pcs

One of the most complete Blackhead remover kits I have seen. Most kits just come with the remover tools. This set actually has 3 sets of different tweezers. Awesome for ingrown hairs or splinters even. The 5 pieces are made of top quality surgical steel. They come in a very nice padded metal container. Each of the tweezers and also the needle pint have a plastic cover on them to keep not only the tools safe during storage but also so you don't poke your fingers when getting them out of the package. I am very impressed at how Lifestance thought of everything in this small but very useful kit.

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.

The screen is very easy to read. It is back lit and has large numbers. The monitor can also be programmed for 2 people and does keep a log of your numbers. This comes with a very nice easy to read and use instruction manual.

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.
