This info is based on my hair type which is long, wavy, thin and frizzy. Obviously this product will have different results for different hair types.

Ever since I’ve heard about the straightening brush craze I’ve been wanting to try one. I don’t straighten my hair alot since I have wavy hair, but I do like the nice smooth, sleek and non-frizzy look on occasion and I don’t seem to get along with regular straighteners very well as I tend to burn myself.

This brush straightener arrived nicely, it comes with 2 teal clips that are great if you have thick or curly hair and need to work in sections and then the brush itself. The cord rotates so you can use it in any direction and has a nice velcro loop so you can keep it wrapped up when not in use. The brush itself (the black back side) does look a bit cheap though, and was already full of scratches and smudges when it arrived.

The brush part has 3 buttons on the side, an on/off (hold for a few seconds to turn on and off) and a +/- for heat control. The heat settings are in Celsius but can be changed to Fahrenheit, and you can increase or decrease it in 11 different modes. But they are in 5C so when you change it in -F the numbers are all odd.

That part I honestly dislike and also feel its misleading to advertise as an American brand when its clearly not (refer to the main title) also this product is made in china. I tried to get more info about this product, they gave a website address in a coupon, and also on the box and the website doesn’t exist. Even with a search I wasn’t able to find anything.

The brush itself works nicely, it straightened my hair. I did have a few problems with tangles and when I tried to remove hair from it I realize it was really hot! So make sure you wait til its cooled before removing hair from it. I did just use it like a brush, although I made sure to brush my hair first, it does recommend that you do small sections at a time though. I did not like how hot it got on the back of the brush. It got REALLY hot! I had it on the starting setting even. I had to put it in the sink to cool off when I was done because I was worried to leave it on the counter with how hot it was.

Overall this is an ok product. It does work but it could use some improvements to make it better for its price point. You can find out more about this product or purchase your own here. I received this item at a discount for my honest and unbiased opinion.

Toothbrush Shield & *Giveaway!*

Toothbrush Shield by IntelliDent 

SAM_0092.JPG

I’m guessing you have no idea what a Toothbrush Shield is, mostly because I didn’t know what one was up until a few weeks ago. But trust me your going to want to find out! I travel, and when I do I use a toothbrush cover, or when I lose it I sometimes just throw a toothbrush into a plastic ziplock, and then of course I forget about it all day as I return and its wet and gross and smelly and it results in me throwing away my travel toothbrush (good thing I keep a supply of back-up travel toothbrushes) but that gets pricey. Not anymore!

The toothbrush shields come in a pack of 10, all nicely individually sealed, super easy to use and fits on all size toothbrushes.

These are great for traveling because the material is breathable and drying but doesn’t get wet on the outside. They are lab tested to be 99.9% effective against surface and airborne bacteria, were as plastic caps hold the moisture in and are known to trap and breed bacteria. I don’t know about you, but its kind of gross to think about germs and bacteria crawling around in my mouth!

Even if you don’t travel much these are great for home use too. I never realized how important it is to keep your toothbrush covered! Here is a fun fact from the IntelliDent Website:

 Did you know? A flushing toilet releases a fine mist of airbourne droplets that settle on surfaces within a six foot radius of the toilet; this mist can contain e-coli and many other harmful bacteria.

So while the shield doesn’t kill germs it does block them, so while your out buying a new toothbrush you should probably get some of these to go with! Your mouth will thank you! Have a mouth guard or retainer? They got you covered too. There is a shield for that. Want another reason to love this company? Made in the USA and Women Owned 🙂

IntelliDent was gracious enough to send me extras so I want to share!! I am giving away a Sample Pack of Toothbrush and Mouth Guard Shields for a lucky reader to try!! Can’t wait to see if you will win? You can find them in select Walmarts, and online at Drugstore.com, Walmart.com, Walgreens.com and Riteaid.com

I recieved this product for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

My Review: I suffer from horrible dry skin, and I really love trying products that are suppose to help with that. I also have sensitive skin so I am very careful about what I put on my skin. I absolutely LOVE that this Scrub is 100% natural. Alot of them claim to be, but you can actually see it be reading the label. They are ingredients you can pronounce!  Coconut Milk is the #1 ingredient. Also love that it is USA made and not tested on animals!

Now about the actual scrub, it is 12 oz. comes in a nice plastic tub, it smells fantastic! I pretty much love all things coconut though! It doesn’t have a strong smell at all, which is saying alot from me since I’m sensitive to smells. The scrub itself is the texture of sand its lightweight, not like a paste like some scrubs. You do not need much though. It went on soft and smooth and I loved how it felt creamy on my skin! It is kind of an oily scrub, but it didn’t leave an oily residue after my shower. I’ve used this a few times and it really feels like my skin is softer. This is great for prepping dry feet for flip flop season!
