Grout Express makes the back breaking work a breeze with its patented design glides that allow you to stand and clean deep into the grout lines. Professional tile cleaning can cost $100s. Grout Express offers an affordable alternative. It’s a stylish advance design tile grout cleaner for only $24!! 

I have been looking over the Grout Express’ Kickstarter page and I am really impressed! You can check out the Grout Express on Kickstarter and see for yourself!

grout3Grout Express is more hygienic that brushes. It uses cleaning pads not brushes to clean the grout lines. After cleaning a dirty tile area just remove the pad and discard before cleaning a bathroom or other area. Brushes can track and spread mold, bacteria, fungi and other allergens into other areas causing illnesses. It is versatile. You can add cleaning glides to the bottom and adjust the width to accommodate small or large tiles allowing you to clean up to four grout lines at once. Saving you time and most of all saves you energy. It is easy to use. Simple as a vacuum cleaner just stand and push forward back and forth. Continue reading

I am super excited to announce that a product review for the Grout Express will be featured on Jennifer’s Deals in the future so be on the look out! 

Pepto-Bismol: Relief for Your Stomach Issues #Productreview

received this product for free from Smiley360 in exchange for my honest review. You can join Smiley360 here!

I have experienced stomach issues ever since I can remember. When I think back to my childhood and teen years, I can remember several times I would be sick for days because I was dealing with stomach issues. I could never go to a friend’s house because I never knew when I would have these episodes. I still suffer from time to time with these episodes and let me tell you, it is not fun. But something else that I can remember very well, is that I always took Pepto-Bismol to help relieve my stomach pains. To this day, I still take Pepto-Bismol.

Pepto-Bismol really works for me and my family. Every time I have an upset stomach, stomach cramps or ingestion, I take a couple of Pepto-Bismol tablets (my favorite method) and within a few minutes the pain subsides. So, knowing the benefits of this product I was really excited when I got the chance to feature and review some Pepto-Bismol products.

peptoPepto-Bismol is indicated for relief of diarrhea and upset stomach due to overindulgence in food and drink, including: heartburn, indigestion, nausea, gas, belching and fullness. Pepto-Bismol relieves upset stomach by binding with the mucoproteins in the stomach lining and providing a protective coating that soothes irritation and provides fast relief from upset stomach and indigestion. Continue reading »

The main thing that I really enjoy about this product is the fast relief. When I am sick to my stomach, I want fast relieve. I want the pain to stop right now. Not an hour later. Not 30 minutes later. I want relief as fast as possible and Pepto-Bismol has always done just that! I also really like that you can buy it in a few different forms. When I am really nauseated I can not take the liquid form. It makes me throw up every single time. My to go form is the chewable tablets. There is a cherry-flavored kind as well, if you don’t like the original taste. I am not a big fan of the flavor when I am sick to my stomach. But it helps my daughters take it when they have an upset stomach.

You can visit Pepto-Bismol and learn more information about how this product can help YOUR family with their stomach issues. And since I am all about saving money there is a coupon and promotion section you should definitely check out!

Personal Microderm (PMD) #Review


reviewpicture

I was recently introduced to a product that helps brighten, smooth, and even your skin tone and texture. I am about to turn 30 in July and as I get older, I have started to realize that my skin is changing. It is not as “youthful” as it use to be. I have always struggled with blemishes and redness and have tried several different products. Some products have helped while others not so much. So when I was introduced to the Personal Microderm, I was really excited to give it a try.

pmdThe Personal Microderm combines the power of Patented Spinning Disc Technology with a Perfectly Calibrated Vacuum Suction to brighten, smooth, and even skin tone and texture. The Personal Microderm reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, blemishes, and enlarged pores. After a treatment, makeup goes on smoother and skin care penetrates significantly deeper – 20X deeper.

PMD Personal Microderm is a company built from the experiences and results of bloggers and youtubers. This company wouldn’t exist if it weren’t for brave influencers taking a chance on their product and discovering their super skin secret weapon. Some use their product to even skin tones, or so make up glides on smoother. Some use it for acne scars or even fine lines and wrinkles. Some use it so their bronzer goes on smoother and lasts longer. Whatever your skin needs, the rejuvinative powers of the PMD can help. Continue reading »

The power comes from the micro-abrasions that take off the top layer of dead dull skin which activates the skin’s own healing process. In addition the vacuum suction brings blood flow and nutrients to the surface of the skin. The combination is the perfect recipe of healthy radiant skin. This is not covering unhealthy skin with make-up. This is transforming your skin from unhealthy to healthy.


The PMD Personal Microderm PIllars of Intensity.Overview – The Personal Microderm is a revolutionary at-home skincare tool that provides the same impressive results as professional, in-office microdermabrasion treatments. By combining the power of exfoliation with a unique vacuum suction, the Personal Microderm works to remove the dead, dull skin cell barrier, increase blood flow, and stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin.The Power of Exfoliation
PMD uses a patented spinning disc with aluminum oxide crystals to exfoliate away the dead, dull cells on the skin. By removing this dead skin cell barrier, new cell growth is stimulated and renewed, revealing soft, brilliant and rejuvenated skin.The Strength of Suction
The PMD uses a calibrated vacuum suction that pulls the blood flow to the surface of the skin for increased blood flow and circulation. This suction triggers the body to build collagen and elastin which leaves the skin firm and radiant.The Benefit of Absorption
Once this barrier is removed from exfoliation, skin care products fully penetrate the skin. This maximizes the benefits of skincare products and helps to restore and perfect the skin, leaving it gentle, rich, brilliant and bright.

My Thoughts:
At first, I was a little bit nervous to use my PMD. I have never used any type of suction vacuum device on my face. I was a little bit overwhelmed when I read the directions and watched the instruction video. But after my first initial use, it is quite easy to use. To use the PMD, you have to plug it into a wall outlet. I was surprised to see that it was not a device that you would use a rechargeable battery. The PMD comes with seven different exfoliating discs; one white disc which is for ultra sensitive skin and training. This is the one that I used on my first try. A blue disc for the face and body (two separate discs), and a green disc for the face and for the body (2 separate discs) which is for medium abrasion. There are red discs, used for maximum strength abrasion, but you have to purchase them separately. The PMD comes with two blue caps, a small facial cap and a large body cap. It is really easy to change the cap. All you have to do is twist the cap off and pull the disc off the device, and replace it by pushing the new down onto the little spike and replace the cap and twist it back in place.
 pmd2One thing that I learned from reading the directions is that if you are using any type of chemical peels, hydroxy acids, retinols or similar products, it is very important to stop using these and allow your skin to regenerate for seven days BEFORE using this device. Fortunately, I did not have to wait since I have not used any kind of facial product of the sort.
 
This is also a very important thing you need to know when you use the PMD. Never hover or stop in one spot or you can get scrape marks or irritations and you must never pass over the same piece of skin more than twice. PMD recommends testing new discs and colours on your arm or neck. This is see how your skin will react. If you feel any type of pain, discontinue use.
 
The directions and training video will seem like a lot but after you follow the directions it is really simple to use the PMD. The first thing you have to do is thoroughly cleanse the skin and allow it to dry. Then connect the power cord and twist tight and start your first treatment with the small white training disc. Make sure the disc sits slightly below the cap and glide the PMD across the skin in straight line motions; short strokes are okay. Make sure to pull your skin tight with your free hand so the disc glides smoothly across the surface of the skin. Place the PMD device on your skin so you feel the suction, and always keep the device moving across the skin.
 
You are only suppose to use the PMD once a week. I have been using mine for about a month and a half so I have gotten in about 6 treatments. I have noticed a difference in my skin. It looks healthier, especially my chin area. My chin was the area that I was affected the most with acne and it left acne scars. I have never found a product or device that would make that acne scars look different. I am very pleased with the results. I have also been using the body discs on the back of my neck and shoulders. I use to have suffer from little red bumps on the back of my neck but no more! My skin looks so healthy now and I have not had any body bumps on my neck or shoulders for a few weeks now!
 
I am highly recommending the PMD Personal Microderm! And all my readers will get 15% off when you use code: Ask Brand! The only thing you have to be careful with is not leaving it on one spot. I accidentally did the second time I used it and it left a little scrape. It didn’t take long for it to heal, but as long as you are careful and don’t stop moving the PMD you won’t have any issues.

Bladder Leakage Does Not Have to be Embarrassing! FREE SAMPLE #underwareness


Until a few years ago, I never really thought about bladder leakage. Then one day I was talking with my Grandmother and she started telling me about how she has been experiencing some severe bladder leakage when she is out and about. It really made me feel bad and worried for her. I didn’t like the thought of my Grandmother having an accident out in public and just imaging the embarrassment she must have felt.

Did you know that the average age of someone with bladder leakage is only 52?! More people with bladder leakage are in their 20’s than their 80’s. Can you believe that? This was a hard fact for me to even fathom since I am only 29! More people with bladder leakage are 50 or younger than 60 or older! Since bladder leakage affects such a younger age range, we don’t want products that are made with the older generation styles. If I start to experience bladder leakage, I want something that will be comfortable and fit into my lifestyle.

But bladder leakage does NOT have to be an embarrassing thing! Depend has up their game and now provides so pretty awesome products to help women with bladder leakage and I love sharing them with my Grandmother.

Depend provides a variety of discreet products that help people regain their freedom and get their lives back, including: Silhouette Active Fit

Silhouette Active Fit for Women briefs: Depend Silhouette Active Fit briefs are a new moderate-absorbency brief that feature a thin design for complete comfort with the trusted protection of the Depend brand and a lower rise+ for an underwear-like look, fit and feel. As a category first, the product is available in black and beige colors. Continue reading »

dependsSince I am not personally experiencing bladder leakage, I asked my Grandmother a few questions about her experience with bladder leakage. Here is how the interview went:

When did you first experience bladder leakage?

  • It kind of surprised me one day. I would notice a few drips every now and then but nothing serious…or so I thought. Then one day I was out shopping by myself and I needed to use the restroom. I could not find a restroom quick enough and well.. I had a major embarrassing accident. Ever since that incident, I have experienced several bladder leakage incidents. Sometimes it is just a little and sometimes it is just a lot. But I have been having these problems for around 3 years now.

How did you go about finding solutions for protection?

  • At first, I didn’t look for anything. I was really embarrassed. Then when it started to come frequently I knew I had to find something so I could go out and live a normal life again. I just picked up a regular pack of Depends.

What feelings did you have when you realized you have bladder leakage?

  • To be honest, I was upset with my body. I have gone through so many different body changes as I have gotten older. I felt like I was just losing more control over my own body.

Do you have any tips or advice for others experiencing bladder leakage?

  • It happens. Don’t be afraid to seek help if you start experiencing bladder leakage. Sometimes doctors can help. Don’t be afraid to get products that will help YOU feel comfortable with the changes in your body. If you need Depends, then get those Depends. There are so many different products out there that can help you live a normal life. Don’t be embarrassed to use them! Be you always!

Depend is entering year three of Underwareness, a social movement and charitable cause to break down the bladder leakage stigma! As part Underwareness, the Depend brand is encouraging people to show their support for women with bladder leakage. For every photo and video shared using #Underwareness and featuring Depend products, the Depend brand will donate $1, up to $3 million through 2016 to fund charities that advance the research and education of bladder leakage.

Five Reasons Why We Love Fur Gilets

Fur gilets are about as on point as it comes this winter season. If you’ve never heard the word “gilet” before, don’t feel bad. A fur gilet is a sleeveless fur jacket that falls to the waist or lower. They’re a favorite item of some of Hollywood’s biggest stars. They are truly stunning garments that can spice up just about any look. Here are five reasons why you need one in your wardrobe.

1. They’re A Celeb Fave

Celebrity trendsetters like Keira Knightley, Taylor Swift and Nicole Richie have been seen rocking fur gilets, both for formal and casual ensembles. Furthermore, the biggest tastemakers on YouTube and Instagram have also been seen rocking these gorgeous fur pieces. If you want to emulate the look of your favorite stars, a fur gilet is a definite must-have.

2. They Go With Literally Everything

A fur gilet is neither formal nor informal. Pair it with a little black dress or a simple t-shirt and jeans. Either way, it compliments your look perfectly. There are few ensembles that don’t benefit from this gorgeous finishing touch. Plus, you can have tons of fun accessorizing your fur gilet with a myriad of purses, shoes and jewelry items.

3. They Are Perfect For Both Day And Night Wear Continue reading »

There are few items in your wardrobe that are perfect for both casual daytime errands and formal nighttime events. A fur gilet, however, is exactly that type of item. It’s one of the few pieces that takes you from day to night flawlessly.

4. They Keep You Cozy And Warm

Just because they’re sleeveless doesn’t mean that fur gilets don’t keep you totally cozy and warm. Thanks to their thick and warm fur material, you’ll never be chilly when you’re wearing a fur gilet. Plus, their soft texture makes them incredibly cozy. They are perfect over a cardigan for mildly chilly autumn days, but can also be layered over or under coats and jackets for even the coldest of winter days.

5. They’re Fabulous And Timeless

Fur gilets aren’t just a flash in the pan trend. Fur gilets have been spotted in editorial and runway looks for a very long time now. If you invest in a fur gilet for your wardrobe, you don’t have to worry that it will be out of fashion next winter. It will be a timeless piece that will age with your wardrobe beautifully.

Fur gilets are the perfect accessory for both winter and fall. They are cozy, warm and incredibly stylish. Whether you’re shopping for someone else or looking to spice up your own wardrobe, they are beautiful investments that will last for many, many years.

Hydrating Conditioner #Review

Disclosure: I received one or more of the products mentioned above in exchange for review from Giveaway Service website. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

One thing that I have always struggled with is my hair is that it gets so dried out and frizzy looking. I have used all sorts of different products to help try to hydrate my hair. Some have helped a little bit while others just cause other problems. Like itchy scalp to super frizzy hair. Knowing all of this, I have to be careful what kind of products I use on my hair.

hydratingI was recently introduced to this hydrating conditioner. I usually don’t use a conditioner (maybe that is part of the problem) but I said why not? I am SO GLAD that I took this opportunity to try this hydrating conditioner! I have noticed a great difference! Not only does my hair look healthier, but I haven’t had any dry, frizzy hair days. Otherwise known as bad hair days! Not only have I gotten some amazing results, but my hair will smell so good after each use. That is one thing I am a sucker for. A great scent. This hydrating conditioner did not disappoint. Continue reading »

The directions state to start from the scalp and work your way down to the roots. It also states that you use small amounts. I had to alter the directions a little bit. My hair is super thick so just a little bit did not work for me. I had to use a medium amount to get the best results. For a deep conditioning, it states to leave it on for a few minutes. I leave this conditioner on for around 5-7 minutes. I will wash my body or shave my legs to give it time to sit on my hair.

I highly recommend this hydrating conditioner if you have dried out hair like mine! Plus this would make for a great last minute gift!
