Leak Proof Silicone Bottles and Cream Jar

Leak Proof Silicone Bottles and Cream Jar

The travel set came with 2 larger silicon bottles, 1 medium sized, a smaller bottle and a cream jar.
As you can see I have filled the larger bottles in the back with shampoo and conditioner already. I had a little problem with leakage on the two larger bottles. I had to put them upside down right after taking the picture. I tried many ways to fix the leakage but it wouldn’t work. Adjusting the silicon part helped a bit but I think it is something with the caps. The smaller bottles didn’t leak so I can use them normally.

 There was also problem with changing the labels: which includes shampoo, conditioner, lotion and sunscreen. If you want to change the label on the bottle you have to twist the silicon until you have the label you wanted to appear. 
There is an X shaped entrance for every bottle. While the cap is closed the liquid should be dispense even if you squeeze the bottle. It’s pretty secure.

The little jar can hold a good amount of cream. I make my own moisturizer with organic raw shea butter, virgin coconut oil and essential oil. As you can see I already used a bit.

Ziraki Lower Back Brace

Ziraki Lower Back Brace

I ordered the small size which I thought it would be too large for me since the measurement says 27"-33". I have a very small waist around 24" and it actually adjustable to that size and even larger I assume. The belt is of very good quality and you can tell by the look and feel. The came in a plain zip lock bag o.o Not complaining though!

I tried it on and it wraps around my waist very tightly. The only problem is that it is harder to breathe and very warm. It does help with the back and spine. I think I would wear this when it's cooler weather so I can breathe!
I don't think I need to lose weigh but this thing is so good for my back! It makes me sit up straight more. Oof very hot though

Sandalwood and Bay Rum Spice Shave Soap

Sandalwood and Bay Rum Spice Shave Soap 

I always like products that comes in very simple packaging. Without all those flashy and sophisticated stuff.
These soaps are very down to earth and function as advertised.
I am a lady and I do love the scent of sandalwood. The Bay Rum and spice has a scent very similar to sandalwood. Almost identical.

I initially wanted to give both of them to my guy but since I like it so much I'll keep the sandalwood for my legs!
These soap are natural and without the harmful chemicals you would find in shaving cream. Not to mention these are much cheaper and will last a long time.
The soap are very gentle and no irritation when applied to my legs. They lather nicely but you have to rub a bit to get that foam. The scent of sandalwood leaves my legs smelling like......sandalwood of course! Not unattractive at all :P Ladies please try these!

Essential Oil Soaps 4 Pack

I absolutely adore these soaps. I mean they look really plain and Jane. Even the packaging is very down to earth. Not to mention the scent of these soap are breath taking. They kind of seep through the packaging when I opened the box.

There is no doubt that these soaps are handmade. The description does say "handmade by Indian artisans". The fact that it is just make me love these even more!
The ingredient are full of natural oils and no chemical or fragrance.

Mint, Rosemary & Eucalyptus:
The color is navy blue and the scent is rather mild compared to the other 3. I had to sniff it really close and I sneezed! It has a neutral/masculine kind of scent and is very soothing. The mint is mild and not penetrating at all. The scent of rosemary is dominant.

Orange & Lemongrass:
I almost mistaken it for sandalwood because it smell almost just like sandalwood essential oil except for the gentle lemon scent. The color is like an attractive dead leaf. Also has a neutral/masculine scent.
My FAVORITE out of the four because it's not too strong and has a gentle almost musky. Perfect for a dude and or a lady. For a lady like me.

Patchouli with Aloe Vera:
The strongest scent of all 4. The color is a muddy yellow. Without looking at the ingredient list I would of definitely think lemon oil is on there. Not! It must be that patchouli..but where does that fresh citrus scent come from!? Never mind that. Smells uh-mazing.

Last but not least- Lavender & Ylang Ylang:
Reminds me of the eye shadow color teenager wear these days. Purple and blue!
The scent is very settling and earthy yet fresh and feminine. Has the 3rd strongest scent of the 4.

FSL AL13 Heavy Bass Earbuds

First of all I really like the packaging - simple and still attractive. I usually look for simple packaging.

When I take out the headphones it was in this plastic mold with two extra pairs of buds. Always great to have back ups.
I carefully popped the headphones out of the mold instead of jerking it out because that could damage the headphones. I usually have one ear bud not working after awhile.

The sound quality is not bad at all like most headphones that sound like the sound is echoing or really far away.
Really like the anti-tangle function of the headphones. Nothing stopped me from giving this a 5 stars! Maybe a little pricey ~_^

Organic Jojoba Oil by Deluxe Botanicals

Organic Jojoba Oil by Deluxe Botanicals

 I never had jojoba oil before but I can tell this is as advertised. Organic and unrefined pure jojoba oil should have a very mild nutty scent.
I did some research before using and testing the oil. It seems that it is safe :D

The color is a light yellow and slightly oily. After applying a little dab on my hand and rub in a circular motion. The oil dries in less than a minute and it is extremely moisturizing without any irritation or scent. I'm not sure about using this oil in my hair because it would make my hair really oily looking but it is perfect for skin as moisturizer.I also use this as a carrier oil for mixing with essential oils. The absorption is excellent.
