Hair Oil Moisturizer

When I moved into my home 7 years ago, I had no idea how hard the water was going to be here. As time went by, it became obvious that we had too much of something in our water. My skin needed moisture all the time and my hair became an absolute mess.

Enter the Hair Oil Moisturizer I was sent for review. This leave in conditioner is designed with a blend of Shea Butter, Coconut Oil and Jamaican Black Castor Oil. It leaves your hair feeling amazing after use. The bounce, shine and softness I have been missing is hidden right in this bottle.

The moisturizer has a unique scent to it, kind of like sweetened cream. It applies thickly enough to get nice coverage, but without running everywhere, or coming out in clumps that just sit on your head. You simply wash and rinse your hair as normal, apply the moisturizer and comb it in. That's it. Leave it in to get the full effects if the treatment.

The bottle is large enough that I find it worth the cost. It provides multiple applications, and for someone like me, who has damaged hair, that is a must. Let's be honest, just one application of anything is not going to fix badly damaged hair.

Meterteck Digital Multimeter (DMM) - Voltmeter, Ohmmeter, Ammeter

I thought I would have a lot more use for this tool, but after receiving it, I found I really didn't. The Multimeter works well, and seems to give me readings similar to other tools of this type, but it just isn't something I will use on a regular basis.

That said, if this is something you need, want, or have to replace, I think this version would be a good choice. The knob is easy to turn and stays aligned well during use, so no worries about it slipping to the next space or getting a bad reading. I like that this comes with two sets of probes, so you have an extra in case one gets lost or damaged. I like that it comes ready to go in the box, so I didn't have to purchase anything to go along with it. I like that anyone can use this once you know what it is for and it reads quickly too. The lighted screen option is great for working in low light, and the compact size means it can fit in the toolbox or storage compartment easily. I didn't have any issues or problems with this meter at all, I just won't be using it as often as I assumed I would when ordering, but that is on me and doesn't take away from how nice and handy this tool is.

Awesome Interactive Children's Magazines Featuring Their Favorite Characters

My kids love getting postal mail or deliveries. There is something about a package or letter for them that they just can't get enough of. When that mail is something they can enjoy later, they love it even more.

We were sent multiple kid magazines to review recently, and they were such a huge hit. Each book is geared around a character or theme like Spiderman, Disney Princesses or Scooby-Doo. There are a ton of different magazines to choose from, and each one is filled with fun things like activities, puzzles, posters and stickers.

The different themes reflect different age groups, so you can find something suited to boys and girls, ages pre-school and up.

My daughter and her friends are 9 and 10, and they still loved the magazines like Frozen and Care Bears. To tell the truth, some of the pictures and stickers were even fun for me and they were a great way to fit in a little mother/daughter time too.

I shared some of the magazines we received with my niece and nephew, as well as some of the neighborhood kids, so I could get a lot of opinions on these. As soon as I saw them, I thought how great they would be for gifts and i wanted to see if I was right. Everyone who tried these loved them and several have asked for more magazines, including the older kids.
You simply subscribe to the magazines you like and they send 6 different issues a year. Delivery is free and comes before the new issue hits stores, plus you can change your titles anytime to grow with your child or keep up with their new favorite characters.

I love this idea and think it would make an awesome gift that keeps giving all year long. The magazines are great for home or on the go and fun to share too!
