VeeSap LifeStyle Grill Brush Review

Grilling season is in full swing!  If your family is anything like ours then most of our meals are now being cooked on the grill.  With that increased use comes increased dirt.  We have purchased many grill brushes over the years and have never really been satisfied.  We were either scared of bristles coming out into our food or it just never really scrubbed enough.  I was contacted to review The VeeSap LifeStyle Grill brush and it has been a real hit with hubby!

The VeeSap LifeStyle Grill brush has a durable and twisted wire surface that will help you to quickly remove the burnt on residue, making cleaning your grill as easy as it has ever been. The spiral bristles penetrate between and through the grill grates, leaving your grill clean and unscratched without having to burn your hands.  With the new and improved woven wire design, worry no more about bristles landing in your food.

This brush can be used on all grill makes including Weber, Broil King, Brinkman, Broil-Mate, Napoleon Gourmet Grills and ALL Grill Types, especially Porcelain, Stainless steel, Infrared, charbroil gas and charcoal grills.  With the easy to clean brush, you will be able to scrape that stubborn grease off of your grill without scratching it.
The brush came in a storage bag and was well wrapped before opening it.  It worked very well on our Weber grill.  This is my husband's baby so he is very careful about what touches it but he was impressed with the awesome handle length and comfort of use.

The handle is 18'' inches long, and had an ergonomic weather resistant handle design. The handle is long enough to be used by both hands. The VeeSap LifeStyle Grill brush is designed to clean all the accumulated grease in all those tough areas without adding strain or pressure on your wrists or burning you knuckles!

 Another great thing about this grill brush is that it is easy to clean and can fit easily in your dishwasher.  You can sit down sooner to eat with your family knowing that it took you less time to clean the grill with 3 times the scrubbing power.

The sturdy handle and innovative bristle design will extend the life-time of your grill and save you the hassle of buying a new one.  They even have a 100% money back guarantee + 5 year warranty + free replacement guarantee.

Blockit RFID Blocking Sleeves Review

If you have a credit or debit card, there is a new digital security threat you need to be aware of.  An estimated one-third of all existing Visa, MasterCard and American Express cards have an embedded radio frequency identification (RFID Chip) that carries financial and personal data- which digital thieves can steal in seconds. It's called DIGITAL PICKPOCKETING!  Using digital readers they buy off the Internet for about $100, unscrupulous people- without ever touching you- can steal your name, account number, card expiration date and other information off your card, while it's tucked away safely in your wallet.

I received the purple and white card holders.  They are slim and not bulky in my wallet.  My wallet's card pockets are too tight for them to fit in but I have a pocket on the side under them that they fit in.  I have had my information stolen 2x and my parents have once so these are a must!!
  • Protect your family and Friends from Credit Card Fraud, Identity Theft and Digital Pickpocketing.
  • 6 fashionable designs are Color Coded Making it Easy to Locate the Right Card, Every Time.
  • Fits in your wallet:  Your Cards Fit Snuggly Inside Plus They Fit Easily in all Wallet Card Slots.
  • Exclusive technology:  BLOCKIT 3-Layer Construction for Maximum Protection
Secure your financial and personal data now!
BLOCKIT Sleeves will protect your privacy and secure your most valuable data from digital pickpocketing. Each BLOCKIT Sleeve is engineered using 3 performance layers - A layer of aluminum material blocks 13.56MHz frequencies, a copper substrate layer blocks all 125kHz, while the outer layer is a glossy paper with attractive full color design

Glow2Go Self Tanning Towelettes Review

I was contact my Thermalabs to review their new innovative tanning towelettes.  I have tried SO MANY different kinds of tanning products but never towelettes.  I am so glad I did!  I really like these so far.

The actual towelette is nice and big and had plenty of product on it for 1 leg.
Below on the left is the first day.  I used 1 towelette on 1 leg.  There is a slight difference and as you can see I'm starting out pretty pale!  I wanted it to be darker so you can see below on the right that by using another towelette the following day gave me a really nice tan color.

It has a slight self tanner smell but not overly strong.  I made sure to thoroughly exfoliate before using the product the first day but the second day I did not for fear of rubbing off what was already there.  I also did not shave 24 hours before using the product.  In the past I have used self tanners right after shaving and the product seems to stick in my hair follicles leaving me with tiny dots, not cool.  By holding off on shaving this helped that issue a lot.

This box of Glow2Go comes with 20  individually wrapped premium towelettes which are perfect for sunless tanning at home or on the go.  Take the towelettes with you on the road and when you travel and you don’t have to carry a big self-tanning lotion bottle.

They even created this special box to also help with storage! The super-saver box comes with a special ‘press to open’ area that will enable easy pulling of one towelette at a time – WITHOUT opening the entire box! This will enable you to keep it in your closet under other products and stay organized. (I realized this AFTER I had already popped the top open...) Yes, they really do try to think about EVERYTHING…

Each towelette is concentrated with their innovative self-tan formula that will produce:
• Quick
• Even
• Streak free
• Natural looking tan in less then 4 hours

To make sure you get the best out of your tanning experience, they will also send you their best selling guide “Self Tan Secrets” that is packed with all the facts and secrets you need to know about the wonderful world of self-tanning! This 50 page guide was researched and written by Thermalabs formula technicians.

They also give you 100% money back guarantee!  They know you’ll never need it, but if for some reason you’re not 1000% amazed by the results – send them the box back and get a full refund!

Right now you can grab a box of Glow2Go towelettes for 50% off, only $16.99 on Amazon with FREE Prime shipping!  Get your tan on now!

Even though I received this product heavily discounted my opinions are my own and I will always be honest good or bad.

Fertilify Vitamin Supplement Review

Women today are having their first child nearly a decade later than their mothers did.  We lead very busy lives, as more of us pursue higher education, personal goals and demanding careers.  We're proud of our achievements; however, these strides take time.  Unfortunately, as women age, both the quantity and quality of our eggs decrease, which can make it difficult to start a family later in life.
I had my son at 28 and now that he is 4 we are trying for another!  I felt this was the perfect time to try this vitamin supplement out!  The tablets are chewable and taste great.  You take 3 per day so I take them all at the same time.  They almost have a cool sensation when chewed.  The orange flavor is great and a little tart but I don't mind that.
FERTILIFY believes that women should not have to choose between their education/career/life aspirations and starting a family.  Women should have confidence in their fertility, whether they are ready to start their family now or later in life.  To get that confidence, women need to be proactive about their reproductive health.  This is why we created FERTILIFY!

FERTILIFY is an all-natural, scientifically backed, doctor designed fertility supplement for women who want to enhance, support and maintain their reproductive health.  Their formula includes antioxidants and coenzymes that remove harmful free radicals that can decrease our fertility as well as key vitamins that help to balance hormones to improve our fertility.

FERTILIFY has leveraged the latest in scientific research to develop its formula; every ingredient has a specific function, and research to support its use.  Their active ingredients include CoQ10, Vitamins C, E, D3, B12 and Folic Acid.  FERTILIFY complies with both U.S. and Canadian health regulatory requirements. 

FERTILIFY is for women who:
  • Want to have children now, and want to support their reproductive health.
  • Want children, but not just yet, and want to be proactive in supporting their reproductive health
  • Are consulting a doctor, and want an all-natural way to complement their treatments.
  • Have children and would like to support their fertility to have more in the future.
  • Want to support their reproductive health before oocyte cryopreservation (egg freezing) treatment
Together they want to help women take charge of their fertility.

You can get a bottle of Fertilify on Amazon for $65.00 and FREE Prime Shipping.  This comes out to just over $2 a day, which is a great deal.

Wild Birch Body Care Premium Beard Oil Review

Are you searching for a solution to coarse, scratchy facial hair? Want to stop beard itch and brittle, split ends?  Do you love having a beard, but would also love stronger, more manageable whiskers and healthier skin?  Are you ready for a grown up beard oil without gimmicks or tricks? 

Wild Birch Beard Oil is an essential part of beard care for all beard styles and skin types - from 5 o'clock shadow to business professional to full grown yeti.

Here is my husbands review:
"First things first, this beard oil has a squirt top!  Two squirts and you have a perfect dime sized circle of oil in your palm.  Repeated use definitely keeps my beard very soft.  The scent is very subdued and sticks around for a while, which is great.  It's a woodsy smell that I can't really pinpoint but I love it.  I didn't like the scent at first, but it definitely grows on you."
He was such a good sport and let me film him using it!!  Give a thumbs up if you think hubby looks good with his well groomed beard!

Wild Birch Body Care Premium Beard Oil is for YOU. Let's take a quick look at why:
  • Softens and strengthens your beard while restoring your skin's moisture and balance.
  • Has a light citrus and woodsy scent that smells great, but doesn't linger too long.
  • Fast absorbing, light weight, and doesn't leave behind any greasy or oily feeling.
  • Easily pump the perfect amount of oil.
  • Powerful, pure, top shelf ingredients include: 
    • Argan Oil: This Moroccan tree kernel nourishes and moisturizes skin, and helps shine and soften hair.
    • Grapeseed Oil: Thin and light, this oil controls moisture and grows and strengthens hair. Its components also provide beneficial properties for skin: anti-inflammatory, acne reductive, and moisture retentive. 

Buy your own bottle of Wild Birch Beard Oil on Amazon with free Prime shipping for $19.99!

Watch others sneak a peek at your inspiring beard masterpiece as you walk by on the way to beard history.
