Spa Home Facial Steamer Sauna

This facial steamer set comes with a bottle of eucalyptus oil. First thing I noticed when I received the package was the intense aroma of the oil.
Inside was 3 pieces of the facial steamer. Easy to put together and store.
The material of the facial steamer seems to be plastic. It’s not very durable but serves its purpose.
There is a little cup to pour the water into the facial steamer. There is a max line which the manual clearly instruct not to overfill. It takes a couple minutes for the steam to appear. Before you start the facial sauna, make sure your face is well exposed. I tied up my hair so that it doesn’t get in the way.

About 1-2 drops of eucalyptus oil is strong enough. Too much can be intense or even painful for the nose.

After use I feel my skin feeling softer and more hydrated. About a week after repeated use I noticed smaller pores.

HealthyWiser NEW Digital pH Meter

This ph meter requires battery.
The ATC runs from 0.00 – 14.00

When the PH meter came and I opened it, I noticed right away that it was a used one. There are scratches and air bubbles on the screen. The reading was not very stable when I first tried it. I read the instruction and calibrated the meter. The reading can take 5-10 seconds to become stable. The tap water is around PH level of 5-6 from PH strip reading. I tested with the meter and it reads 6.41 which is relatively close to what I should get. Keep in mind we really shouldn’t be consuming acidic water OR tap water.
FYI: Cancer cells thrive in acidic environment.

This ph meter requires battery.
The ATC runs from 0.00 – 14.00
The meter is easy to use and operate. There are two buttons; on/off and calibration. To measure the ph level of water you simply dip the tip of the meter in the water and wait until the measurement is stable. Sometimes when the electrode dies out from due to prolonged exposure to air, which can lead to slow or unstable reading. The electrode should be immerse into distilled water for 2-3 hours to fix this problem.
After finish using the meter, the cap should be placed back to reduce the electrode from exposure to air.

PH meter measures acidity and alkaline level in liquid.  PH level of tap water is 6.4 which is considered acidic.

2 Quart (1/2 Gallon) Cold Brew Coffee Maker and Tea Infuser with Mason Jar and Stainless Steel Filter

Half gallon Mason jar coffee maker and tea infuser. The cap is BPA free.
The Mason jar has measurement on the side. The stainless steel filter is ultra-fine and leaves almost no residues in the drink.
The filter is almost as long as the jar itself. The silicon seal is to be placed around the filter to prevent leaking when the jar is screwed tight.
You might not want to make exactly half gallon as the jar can become heavy and difficult to pour.

Able to make both coffee and tea in large quantity. Relatively easy to wash.

Pour Over Coffee Maker

The filter of this pour over coffee maker is very fine. I really like this feature because I can only make tea with it. The mesh is very fine so that small particle or residue doesn't get into the drink.

I tested the tea leaves and the filter works great. Little to no residue on the bottom of the drink.
It's a pretty large size and light weigh. Overall easy to wash. I soak it in a big bowl of lukewarm water and gently rub out the remaining residue.
For coffee this is perfect but for tea it may require some extra work. Since the tea leaves actually need to be soaked more. You might find yourself pouring a couple times.
I also find this filter great for preparing matcha (green tea powder) if you don't have a matcha whisk (chasen).
