Nordic Naturals Review



About Nordic Naturals
Nordic Naturals is a leading supplier of fish oil worldwide. Nordic Naturals believes that omega oils are essential to life. By correcting the global omega-3 deficiency, they give each generation what they need to grow healthy and strong. Through science and innovation, they are committed to delivering the world's safest, most effective omega oils.

Our Experience
We had the chance to try the Ultimate Omega Junior and the Vitamin C Gummies. Each of the boys tried them and of course I was curious and had to try them too.
The Vitamin C Gummies were loved by both Mr. O and Mr. C. I thought they were good too. They seemed similar to other gummie vitamins that we had tried in the past. The Tart Tangerine flavor was more than Mr. R could handle. But I think most kids will like them. I also like that they are free of many allergens.
I've been reading more about how important Omega-3's are to our health. The Ultimate Omega Junior soft gels were also well liked. I don't feel that my boys are old enough to swallow pills yet so I encouraged them to chew them. They were a little surprised when they 'popped' in their mouth. The strawberry taste is just ok if you ask me. Mr. O seems to like them. The recommended age is 5+, however I would still be careful with some children swallowing the soft gel shell.
Overall I think these products can aid in providing healthy supplements to my children.

I try to be gentle to my hair, but it still shows signs of damage. I have dry split ends. This hair mask worked well. I like how thick it is. It is easy to apply too.

It gives my hair a nice boost with extra shine. I like knowing that I'm using an organic and natural ingredient beauty product. I also like the way my hair smells after using the Argan mask.

Galley Essentials Silicone Baking Cups Review



About Galley Essentials Silicone Baking Cups
Our silicone baking cups make for "Easy Release Cupcakes or Muffins" with no messy tearing! You get a set of 12 reusable (standard size) silicone baking cups in 4 colors.

Fun, versatile silicone baking cup molds can be used for cupcakes, muffins, mini cakes, cheesecakes or any tasty frozen treat!


My Experience
I've used other silicone products before, but this is the first time I've used silicone baking cups. These have so many uses. The first thing I made was pancake muffins. They were a big success! I placed mine in a muffin tin to give them a little more stability, but I think they could be baked on a flat cookie sheet as well. The muffins were easy to remove after I let them cool. I also love filling them up with little snacks like fruit and nuts, crackers and cheese, or even dry cereal. They give my kids just the right portion. I hand wash mine, but I like that they can be placed in the dishwasher. I also like that they will save me money. No more buying paper liners that just get thrown away. I also feel I'm doing my little part to help the environment. Overall these silicone baking cups are one of my new favorite kitchen tools.

InstaNatural Deep Cleansing Facial Oil Review



About InstaNatural Deep Cleansing Facial Oil
Our Deep Cleansing Facial Oil contains the perfect blend of ingredients that melt away dirt, impurities and makeup without stripping the skin of its natural oils or disturbing the natural pH balance. This energizing blend of oils will gently clean your pores and remove dead skin cells, leaving your skin smooth and nourished. Our Facial Oil Cleanser is made with natural ingredients, such as Jojoba Oil, Olive Oil, Essential Oils, Tamanu Oil, Hemp Oil, and more. Massage onto skin to gently and effectively remove dirt, impurities and makeup. Our nonabrasive facial wash contains many key active ingredients that work to clean your face and pores without stripping the skin of its natural oils. Strong enough to be used as a makeup remover - can even tackle eye liner and mascara!

My Experience
I was skeptical at first that an oil could effectively be used as a cleanser. Wouldn't I need to wash my face again after I used it? I was surprised to find that this was not the case! This cleansing oil is wonderful! The pump dispenser is convenient. I found two pumps to be the right amount to use on my face. It is very gentle on my skin, and after I rinse my face it feels smooth with added moisture. I've found that I can use it daily and my skin doesn't feel oily. The oils are absorbed quickly after I gently blot my face to dry it. Makeup and other skin products can be used on top of it as well. Overall I'm enjoying this all natural organic cleanser.

Graindrops Probiotic Beverage Review



About Graindrops
Graindrops introduces a most delicious gluten-free, dairy-free, organic probiotic beverage powered by koji, an ancient Japanese culturing tradition. We believe in optimal health powered by nature’s own wisdom. That’s why we’ve worked hard to create a beverage made from the purest ingredients that delivers extraordinary nutritional value while promoting digestive health. Our whole grains are rich in fibers that encourage the growth of healthy and beneficial bacteria in our bodies. Koji’s naturally rich mixture of enzymes like protease, amylase, and lipase convert all parts of our whole grains into healthy amino acids, carbohydrates, and natural sugars. So whether you’re traveling, working out or simply want a snack that’s healthy and satisfying, Graindrops tastes and feels great any time of day.


My Experience
I was eager to try Graindrops. I've heard good thing about probiotic beverages but hadn't tried them before. I thought they were delicious. They reminded me of very runny yogurt. The original and mango ginger were ok, but my favorite was the blueberry. I had all three boys try them and Mr. O and Mr. R weren't big fans, but Mr. C drank his glass with a big smile. This will make a great snack on those days that I need a boost. You can find them at a Whole Foods store near you.
Graindrops comes in three varieties: Original, Blueberry and Mango Ginger

My Experience
I am a night owl. So I was interested in trying something that could help me get to sleep. I like this Tart Cherry Juice. I think it tastes great. I tried it both mixed with water and straight from the bottle. I actually preferred it straight. My husband thought that it tasted like cherry pie. All three of my boys liked that way it tasted when it was mixed in water. I think they will like it as well when I add it to their smoothies. As far as helping me sleep I think it works a little and because it's not a medication I feel confinement it continuing to try it. Overall our entire family can benefit from this juice concentrate.

I added dried blueberries and toasted coconut for my afternoon snack.

This is my first time trying a nut milk bag. I was excited to try making my own greek yogurt. I liked that I was able to hang the bag by the drawstring. I didn't have to 'babysit' the bag to be sure it was straining properly. The results were delicious! I found the quality of this bag to be very good. The double stitching around the bottom gave me confidence that it could withstand multiple uses. It was easy to clean and dried quickly too. Next I'm going to try making almond milk. I think will be a good tool to have in my kitchen.

Adovia Pure Shea Butter Review



About Adovia Pure Shea Butter
Raw Shea Butter has been proven to provide natural relief from symptoms of very dry skin, psoriasis, dryness and eczema. Also very popular as a daily moisturizer. Excellent for stretch marks from pregnancy or other reasons. Great to use as a tummy butter for expecting mothers. It can be used as a deep daily moisturizer for skin & hair. Contains Vitamin A, Vitamin E and Vitamin F. It does not clog pores. Adovia Shea Butter is highly moisturizing and long lasting. Used by many to make DIY soaps and lotions.

My Experience
I've found many uses for this shea butter. I especially like using on my hands and cuticles. I wash my hands often and use hand sanitizer when I'm working so the shea butter is very helpful. I've also used it on my lips as a balm and as a moisturizer for my face. I like that it melts easily with just the warmth of my skin. I know that Vitamin A and Vitamin E are good for my skin. However, I wasn't sure what Vitamin F was. If you are curious like I am I discovered that Vitamin F is two essential fatty acids: omega-3 and omega-6. These are typically consumed in the foods we eat, but applying them to my skin seems like a benefit too. Overall I feel this shea butter is a good moisturizer for my skin.

The lavender scent is relaxing. After rinsing my face I was happy to find that my skin felt soft and hydrated. The oils seem to be absorbed as the mask dries. My skin is somewhat sensitive, so I've used it once a week so as not to overdo it. However, I think I might move up to twice a week because I love the results.
