(Product Review) Alisten I3HR Heart Rate Monitor, Smart Fitness Band Black



I ordered the Alisten I3HR Heart Rate Monitor, Smart Fitness Band Black because I've been wanting to get one of the fitness trackers. Unfortunately, the one I got was defective and would not power on.

This is a Heart Rate Monitor, Smart Fitness Band Activity Tracker Bracelet Wristband HR Pedometer Wireless Waterproof Calorie Counter Weather Temperature Smart Watch for IOS & Android Smartphone IP67. It was just what I had been looking for. I only wish it would have worked because I was very anxious to try this out, but unfortunately I didn't get the chance.

I have returned it and am hoping the company will send a replacement for evaluation. I can't recommend it at this time since the one I got would not even power on, but if I get a working one I will update to let you know.

(Product Review) IDO3D Vertical 4 Pen Studio - White, Blue, Green, Red




With IDO3D Vertical 4 Pen Studio - White, Blue, Green, Red, you can draw vertically, straight into the air and make all sorts of 3D art. Just draw your designs, then cure them with the light. Great gift for kids between the ages of 8 to 15 years old.

Although these vertical pens aren't quite the same as the more expensive ones, they are a lot of fun for the kids. Each pen comes pre-filled with a melty plastic like substance. You can draw your designs, then cure them with an included ultraviolet light. If you don't cure them, your 3D art will stay soft and melty.

There are higher quality 3D pens out there, but they are also much more expensive. I think this was a great starter set to allow my grandchildren the creative freedom to design their own artwork without paying the much higher price for some of the others out there. This set was absolutely perfect for our needs and made a great gift for my older grandchildren.

(Product Review) AUDBOS Double Driver In-ear Deep Bass Noise Isolating Earphones with Mic and Remote



I am always looking for a better pair of earbuds and this time I ordered the AUDBOS Double Driver In-ear Deep Bass Noise Isolating Earphones with Mic and Remote.

I have tried a lot of earbuds, and have never found a more comfortable pair. I love the wood and metal combination for these. They not only look great but also have an excellent sound quality.

They are easy to use with my phone for listening to music or making phone calls. I can hear everything perfectly. They come with an assortment of ear tips so you can get just the right fit for your ears, and the snug fit helps to eliminate background noise.

I am very happy with my earbuds and would recommend them to anyone who wants a good quality set of earphones that both look and feel great.

Another cool kitchen gadget I recently got is this PSF-C316 2-in-1 Knife and Cutting Board Food Chopper. It is like a knife and a cutting board all built into one. You use it similarly to a pair of scissors. Place food between the blade and the cutting board, then squeeze it shut. It chops all sorts of veggies perfectly.

(Product Review) InstaNatural Retinol Moisturizer



InstaNatural Retinol Moisturizer is a natural and organic beauty product that has become a part of my nightly beauty routine. It is easy to use. I just apply a little of this onto my freshly cleansed skin, then massage it in.

This retinol moisturizer is lightly scented and absorbs quickly and easily. I've been using this every night. It appears to be smoothing my fine lines and wrinkles, as well as reducing the blemishes. My skin tone is beginning to even out and my skin appears smoother with less visible signs of aging.

I can't say if it is just this product that has made the difference since I have been using a couple of other products from Instanatural, but the combination is definitely something I would recommend.

(Product Review) Islands Miracle Chelated Magnesium Bisglycinate



Magnesium is a crucial mineral for a variety of bodily functions including everything from your muscles, bones, digestion, sleep regulation, blood pressure and even your heart. I have been taking Islands Miracle Chelated Magnesium Bisglycinate along with my usual supplements.

I had read that a magnesium deficiency can cause multiple symptoms such as muscle spasms, poor digestion, insomnia and anxiety, as well as issues with blood pressure, bone strength and more. Since I have several of these issues, I was anxious to try this supplement.

These 200mg Magnesium Glycinate capsules have better absorption than tablets. They are easy to take and have no laxative effect like some of the other magnesium supplements I have tried in the past. These are vegan and non-gmo capsules.

I have been taking these for a little while now and although I can't say for certain whether this supplement has made the difference, I have been having a bit less trouble with both my digestion and my insomnia. My muscle aches and spasms are still there, although they may be slightly better. I will continue taking these and hope for continued improvements.

I love lemon in my water or tea, and have been trying out a new kitchen gadget. Squissors - The Only Lemon & Lime Squeezer with a Built In Blade, is a manual fruit juicer that cuts and squeezes citrus quickly and easily.

Just place your lemon, lime or small orange into the basket, then lower the blade to slice your citrus fruit in half. Then squeeze the handle, and much like a pair of scissors, the gadget closes, pressing the juice from your fruit. This thing is really cool.

(Product Review) Aulker Dry Bag, Outdoor Compression Waterproof Dry Pack Stuff Sack



My family and I enjoy a variety of outdoor activities, and know the importance of a good drybag. I got the Aulker Dry Bag, Outdoor Compression Waterproof Dry Pack Stuff Sack to add to our outdoor equipment, and I'm glad I did.

I already own several dry bags in assorted sizes and colors, but this one is a bit different than the others. I'll tell you why in just a minute, but first I want to stress that the most important thing in a dry bag is that it actually keeps your gear dry, and this one does. As with many of the other dry bags, you simply roll the top down 3 or 4 times, and fasten it shut. It keeps the water out very well through heavy rain or even being dropped into the river.

This bright yellow bag holds 15 liters, which is plenty of room for most of my individual outings, or as a supplemental bag when the entire family goes on an outing and brings along a lot of gear. It is perfect for camping, hiking, fishing, or our frequent river trips during the summer. The sturdy material will hold up well to the elements, and keep our belongings safe and secure during our outdoor adventures.

Additionally, this would be great to use as a bugout bag for those who wish to keep a survival bag handy by filling it with your emergency gear and keeping it tucked safely in the trunk of your car. It not only works well to keep your stuff dry, but can also be used as an emergency life preserver or even to carry water in a pinch. This large drybag also has a detachable handle so you can carry it as a duffle bag or over your shoulder.

Okay, so I promised to tell you about the unique feature that I love so much about this bag, so here it is. How many times have you taken a cellphone out on a boating trip and ended up with a wet phone? This bag can really help with that. It has a pouch built into the inside where your cellphone is protected from the elements, but is also easy to use. The pouch has a responsive side where you can actually use your touchscreen phone through the clear material, but that isn't all. There is an auxiliary jack built into the pouch. You can plug the jack into your cellphone while it is inside the bag, then plug your headset into the other end of the jack on the outside. This allows you to use your smartphone or tablet easily without having to worry that it might get wet or damaged. This is an excellent feature that I absolutely love.

Starry Laser Lights Projection Christmas Lights Video Review



I love how the light from these Starry Laser Lights Projection Christmas Lights twinkles. These add a festive touch to your yard or home. They come with a detachable stake so you can stick it in the ground outside of your home and shine the starry laser lights onto your house or trees.

I got the blue and green lights, but they are also available in red and green if you prefer. Either one looks great, so it is simply a matter of personal preference.

The light comes with a remote control so you can change the color to show either color individually or both colors together. You can also adjust the speed of the lights so that they flash more or less frequently. The remote control also has an adjustable timer setting so you can set your lights to turn off after two, four, six or eight hours if desired.

These are lovely to look at and even though this may be a Christmas light set, it would be beautiful for other purposes as well. You could use it at nearly any type of outdoor party, or even to showcase the giant snowman you built from all the snow that was just dumped on us.

I love that it is an outdoor light that can be used year round for an attractive accent. The remote control is certainly a bonus too, since it can operate at up to about 10 meters away so I don't need to go far to turn it on or off. I am very happy with this light and would recommend it to others.

(Product Review) AZSPORT Hand Exerciser and Grip Strengthener with Adjustable Resistance



I've been working to increase my overall fitness, and added the AZSPORT Hand Exerciser and Grip Strengthener with Adjustable Resistance to my exercise equipment. Using this hand exerciser while watching TV or other idle tasks is an easy way to work on strengthening your hands, fingers, wrists and forearms.

I have a couple of other grip strengtheners that we also use, and although this one isn't my favorite, it does work rather well. It is somewhat adjustable, although not as much as a couple of others I have used. It works well for those who have hand problems and don't have a lot of strength.

It doesn't adjust to enough tension to work as well for my sons who already have pretty good hand strength, but works well enough for me and my grandchildren to use. I do wish the settings would allow for a little more tension since I am now using it at the maximum setting, however I now find myself needing to increase the repititions instead of the tension. Still, it works well for me, so I would recommend it to those who don't already have good hand strength. For those who require additional tension, check out my reviews of other similar hand exercisers for one that may work better for your needs.

This is a wired mouse that plugs into a standard USB. It is a plug and play device that needs no additional drivers or software. It is advertised as a gaming mouse, but it works well for much more than gaming. This mouse works very well for video games, but also is a great mouse for my office tasks or any other purpose.
