It’s funny how my lack of writing reviews has come to a standstill, since all the problems with Amazon.
My husband has been wearing Jovan Musk since I bought it for him, and it could now be 30 years or more. You know how a fragrance is just you, well that’s how it is with him. I have actually been using my same perfume for 49 years.
Other years before places like K-Mart closed down, I would buy up all their boxes of Jovan Musk after Christmas, when they were half price. Now I have to pay full retail, so checked around, and found that the cheapest price was on Amazon. I got this big 8 ounce bottle for $15.12. It was at least $20 everywhere else I checked.
It is a real manly smell, and many lady friends of ours tell him how good it smells, on him.
There are smaller bottles, as well as spray bottles, but this one works out cheapest per fluid ounce.
I bought this on March 26th, and only just got the enthusiasm to write about it.
I use anti-wrinkle, anti-aging products all the time, so was happy to receive the Sano Naturals Hyaluronic Acid with Vitamin C Serum.
Most of my serums are this combination, and I have to say that I get compliments as to the softness, look of moisture, in my skin. Alas nothing improves my wrinkles, but this product does help me to keep my wrinkles getting worse. I have been using these product for the past 10 years, and honestly feel that they do a good job.
If you start earlier enough, I truly believe that it will work for you. I, of course left it too late in life. It probably wasn’t around when I first needed it.
I use it in the mornings, after washing my face, and before putting an anti-wrinkle moisturizer on. You can do individual drops, as it is thicker than most. Love that you don’t waste any. It is a pearl color. It goes into the skin really well, and I love the delicate fragrance of it.
A little from the Amazon webpage:
Our Hyaluronic Acid offers the following benefits:
Moisturizes your skin and keeps it hydrated all day long.
Reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks and sun damaged spots.
Evens out the skin tone by softening blemishes, discoloration and scars to reveal a more creamier complexion.
Will leave your skin feeling softer, smoother and silky.
Will leave your skin looking brighter, more radiant and younger.
It will even help your makeup glide on smoother, though after using our serum you won’t need to wear any!
Chemists and dermatologists are using hyaluronic acid in unprecedented ways to make skin dewier, firmer, and a whole lot more awesome.’
I did receive mine for free, and am always honest in my reviews. I update my reviews is anything changes, while using it.
Then I got the Casa Aromatherapy Sweet Orange 100% Pure Therapeutic Essential Oil 10ml/0.33oz, and also the Casa Aromatherapy Eucalyptus Oil for only $1.50 each.
Both the essential oils are still available, but the Nut Cravings one isn’t available right now. You may wish to check it often to see when it comes back into stock.
I love these little items, as they are so inexpensive, and it gives me a chance to try them, before spending a lot of money. I have more coming, so will do another one of these, when I have received a few more.
I am a true believer that you need to take care of your skin, as the sun, wind, etc., will dry it out. That is why I received the Aprilis 20% Vitamin C Serum with Hyaluronic Acid.
The 1 ounce bottle comes with a dropper, and is in a dark brown bottle to protect the product. I like that it isn’t too runny, and that you can get a single drop at a time. This doesn’t always happen with beauty products.
I am 70 so have lines/wrinkles, and dark spots. My skin is really soft, and hydrated, as I do take care of it. I am using this product in the mornings, after cleansing my face, and using a toner. It is easy to apply, and then I dab it, so that my skin absorbs it. Once it is dry I use an anti-aging moisturizer.
I have ladies coming up to me, in the gym, and saying that my face looks full of moisture. I suggest that they do a similar regime.
A little about the product from the Amazon page: ‘Benefits
1. Improves your skin by making it firmer and more youthful.
2. Helps prevent premature aging and wrinkles.
3. Fades dark spots and brightens your skin.
4. Makes your sunscreen more effective and boosts your skin’s defense against UV exposure.
When I go on vacation I tend to take a throw away razor, rather than a regular size one. Now I have the Miserwe Womens Electric Razor Mini IPX4I can get a perfect shave without taking up much room.
It comes with a USB charger that fits into the bottom of the razor. Also a carrying bag, a brush, and User Manual.
The razor comes fully charged. I first tried it on my legs, and it gave me a close shave. The underarms were easy. When it came to the bikini area, it is so slim, that it was extremely easy to use, and get into difficult areas.
All in all, this is a really good product.
A little from the Amazon page:
‘Ladyshaver with 3 in 1 flexible trimmer system, allows you to remove unwanted hairs, more safely and quickly, easily and comfortably.
Soft touch switch, convenient and comfortable.
Using universal global Micro-USB, you can charge your epilator anyplace and anytime.
When this electric lady shaver is full of electricity, or running, or charging, its LED light will indicate different light.
Wet & dry use for maximum convenience. Easy for clean.
User tip: Hold the epilator handle at a 90 degree angle for the most efficient hair removal treatment. Lady Shaver/epilator cleans quickly and easily under warm running water.’
I was fortunate to receive this ladies razor for free, but feel it is a perfect product for anyone that travels, or only has a tiny bathroom.
I do have one 220 ml Essential Oil Diffuser, and find it perfect for my bathroom. I have several larger ones, but was so happy to get the Diffuserlove 220 ml. Essential Oil Diffuser, for my other bathroom.
These are great for any smaller rooms, and I would certainly recommend it. So simple to use, as you can see in my video. I did this in our office/bedroom, and apologize for the messiness of my desk. If I put everything away, I don’t get to it.
There are only 2 buttons for the light/color, and the mist, so the simplest of products to use. Mine is going to be running whenever I am home, so love the auto shut-off. That’s saved all my diffusers over the years.
This one is a perfect price, at just $14.99 with Amazon Prime, so an inexpensive gift for that lady in your life. Also great for gym rats like me. I would hate for anyone to come in my home, and it not smell wonderful.
I did receive my diffuser for free, and have been totally honest in my review of it.
I am a firm believer in biotin supplements, so wanted to try the HAIRESSENCE All Natural Hair Growth Biotin Vitamin Formula Supplement.
First off I have to say, when opening the bottle, it was barely half full. Why can’t companies use bottles, the correct size, for the enclosed product. There are 60 capsules, and the directions are to take 2 a day. Thus a 30 day supply.
If I hadn’t already been taking biotin, it would be hard to be honest, on a product that really takes around 30 days to start working. However, these are similar to the ones I have been taking, so continue to make my hair soft, and shiny. I still loose hair when I comb in, but it doesn’t brake
This is the product description from the Amazon webpage:

I do take Vitamin C, Folic Acid, Vitamin B Complex,
Vitamin D3 separately from this capsule, and notice that my nails are also in excellent condition. Overall, I think the combination is great for a healthy body too.
At age 70, I have to say that my hair looks good. It has always been baby thin, and nothing can be done about that. I don’t seem to have hair loss, apart from the few strands I have always lost each day.
I did receive this supplement at a discounted price, and am pleased with it.
I use so many Ziplock bags, which end up getting thrown away, as they are single use. When I saw the Strawberry Halo E-Z Seal re-seal reusable Peva Storage Bags, I thought ‘Great’ less landfill.
They are see through, and come in 2 handy sizes. There are 2 of the Snack bag 8.5″ x 4.75″, and 3 of the Lunch bag is 8.5″ x 7.25″. They have an excellent thick seal to them, which doesn’t leak.
I have tried them with water, just as an experiment, and no leakage. Then with food. You can see the leftover hot dogs, in one of my photos. They are also great for the office, keep desks tidy, and everything together. Ladies, all of your
travel makeup would fit in either size, depending on how much you take.
There are so many other uses for them, and I am sure that everyone can come up with different ones.
They are food grade quality, BPA free, are freezer safe, and travel friendly. They are completely airtight.
A little from the Amazon webpage:
‘Leak-proof lock seals in freshness and is perfect for Make-up, Make-up Brushes, Food storage, Baby Pacifiers, Stationery and much more…
Capable of holding liquid without spillage Pack of 5 reusable zip seal bags (3 lunch size, 2 snack size)-the perfect solution for plastic bag waste
Freezer safe and hand washable Made of FDA-grade PEVA material (which is also PVC, BPA and Lead free)’
I am loving using them, and thinking about getting more, as the savings of not buying throw away bags, would pay for them over time. I did receive mine at a discounted price, but feel that these are a great value product at $17.99, with Amazon Prime.
There is only two words I can use for the GURUN Tabletop LED Lighted Makeup Mirror with 7 x Magnification, quality product.
Yes, I do realize that this is an expensive LED Lighted Makeup Mirror, but the money has been put into the product. It weighs 4 lbs., which means that when using it, the mirror will not budge. The dimensions are 12.6 x 7.3 x 16.8 inches, so it is a big, strong mirror. It has a chrome finish, which adds to it’s beauty.
On one side it is an LED lighted mirror with 1 x, and the other side is the 7 x magnification mirror. As you can see in my photos, it lights up really well. The mirror can be turned over, so you don’t have to move it around.
A little from the Amazon webpage:
‘Made of high quality BRASS: Rustless, anticorrosive and durable
Double sided mirror in 2 magnification setting: 1x & 7x that is suitable for any task
The light mimics the true lighting of the outdoors so that your makeup looks flawless when you step outside!
Compared to mirrors with incandescent bulbs, Led won’t get hot with prolonged use and saving energy
Stylish Chrome Finished
My husband wanted the last mirror I reviewed, in his bathroom, so this one will now be in mine. I did receive it at a discounted price, and have really tested it well, before writing my review.
As I am almost 70, one of the important beauty products for me is anti aging serums, and creams. I keep my body looking good with exercise, so want to do the best for my face, and neck. That is why I wanted to test the Eternal Youth Anti Aging Cream with collagen.
The jar is very elegant, and contains 1 ounce of rich, white cream. I dab it on my face, and gently rub it in. It completely disappears into my skin, and leaves a shine to my face. It is not greasy at all, and my skin feels soft, and dewy.
The directions are to use it morning and night for best results.
‘ Sweet Almond Oil, loaded with antioxidant Vitamins E & A… shown to help prevent UV damage & more (2007 study, Hamdard University)
=== > Avocado, filled with Vitamins A, C, E & other antioxidants known for revitalizing skin (multiple studies cited by the National Institutes of Health)
=== > Cucumber, a rich source of Vitamins A, C & K plus collagen-boosting silica… believed to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, according to the Archives of Dermatological Research (May 2011)
=== > Ginseng, the homeopath’s go-to herb for renewing & regenerating skin cells
It All Adds Up to Glowing, Radiant Skin… Guaranteed or Your Money Back’.
I have only been using it for a few days now, and
like what I see. I did receive this product at a discounted price, and will be honest, when I get back to this review after more testing.
