Skrub’a potato gloves – Making Cleaning Potatoes Easy – Giveaway & Review

written by: Riah

Extended Giveaway… as a result of low entries… must get up to at least 50 by Aug 31st.

I would like to introduce you all the Skrub’a potato gloves, I was kindly asked by Fabrikator USA to try out a pair of their gloves for cleaning veggies. As I waited for my Gloves to arrive I looked at their site and was impressed with the idea of gloves for cleaning your Potatoes, Carrots and Veggies. Not only that but what a fun idea to get the kids involved as they have childrens gloves too! I can see how this would have encouraged participation of the kids in cleaning their veggies. I always found that getting the kids involved in food preparation not only taught them lessons for later in life, but gave us together time as well as made them sometimes eat those things that they helped prepare… all in all a good life lesson. 


While I awaited the gloves to arrive from Fabrikators, I looked through their website and I was surprised to see what other products they have “Lemon Friend” and the cutest “Toddler Cutlery”. After seeing that I had to see about the company so I looked at the “What is Fabrikators” link and this is the interesting information that I read from their website: 


My Gloves arrived and I received the Potato Gloves to try out. Now my husband is a meat and potatoes man, but we both prefer sweet potatoes. So I had hubby pick up some sweet potatoes for us to try these on, I must say it is so simple to use these gloves on them, I just ran water and used my hands. Being that I didn’t use my old spray fruit and vegtable cleaner on them, I was surprised at how quickly and easily they came clean! Actually they came clean easier then with the Fruit and Veggie Spray. And they were right (on their website) there was no damage to the skin, where all the really good nutrients are.



Now I took before and after shots of the sweet potatoes, but I must admit that it’s not too easy to see the difference, but believe me there was! It is unfortunate that though  he tried, my husband failed to find very dirty potatoes. Doesn’t it figure that when, for once, you actually go out of your way to find something dirty as can be to clean you only find things that are a little dirty? lol




Results of this product testing:
1) I am pleased to have a pair of gloves to clean my potatoes with, they do a great job, with less effort than anything else I’ve used.


2) I love the fact that these gloves are machine washable! 


3) I have to admit that calling them Skrub’a Gloves feels a little uncomfortable, why? Because, it’s not like scrubbing at all, it’s not rough on the potatoes and it’s not a chore to use these gloves, it’s more like giving your potatoes a little rub down!


*Oh speaking of “rub downs”, there is a benefit that I  almost forgot to mention
While using this you may note that you feel as though your hands are being massaged with an gentle exfoliator. So when your done guys and gals, wash off your hands (just incase some dirt came through). Pat your hands dry (don’t overly dry them you want to keep the moisture in) and then put on some lotion… trust this former Cosmetologist, it should help make your hands baby soft! 


Thank you to Arya, for entrusting me with the review of these wonderful Gloves. I will remember these gloves come gift giving time! What do you give to the person that has it all? Well… I think I finally have the answer! 🙂


One of you lucky followers out there will win a pair of adult potato cleaning Skrub’a Gloves, just like I have!

Luscious Lips – Win a Plump Pout! Review

I was so very lucky with this one, I was asked by Rejenuve, Inc. (Cynthia Rowland’s Products) to do a product review and giveaway of Luscious Lips… the product made to make your lips fuller.




First off let me say … there is a SALE on only through the end of this month, it ends July 31st, sorry they couldn’t continue on with the sale after all, as they are going fast!  I am so sorry, I had just gotten a note from the Representative of the company saying that they couldn’t to there sale until the end of August after all. Here is a qoute from her note (copied and pasted): 

URGENT: please change the expiration date for the promotion to July 31st as soon as you can! Cynthia cannot extend the promotion til August anymore. Sorry about that!

Thanks,
Jenn

I am sorry folks, I guess they didn’t know how fast the product would go, and here I was so impressed with their sale offer to you my very special readers. *sigh*  So act now for the great savings on this product, I would order now if I were you, who knows when they will have a deal like this again, besides, if you know someone into beauty or an older woman they would love to give this a try too. So even if you were to win, you can give one away as a gift! Buy Luscious Lips for only $30, saving you $20 off the usual price!

Luscious Lips Deluxe Kit
from: Rejenuve, Inc.

Now on with the review, I am going to be ready tomorrow to start up the full treatment on my lips with the Luscious Lips lip pump… I’ve been a good girl and have done my 9 of my 10 to 14 days of “Conditioning” my lips for the full treatment. I can already see a little difference in my lips. I have been following the instructions and going the gentle pumping action and holding for 2 seconds. A total of five 2 second pumps. I may just go the other 4 days before starting the whole routine… I had been sick this past weekend and skipped a day, so better safe then sorry. 🙂
I have had no ill effects from using this, I’ve heard nay sayers say that they got bruises on their lips etc… what are they trying a vacuum cleaner? Seriously folks once or twice I must have pumped a little too hard but it lost suction those times and I think as long as you are gentle and not over doing the routine you will be fine. 
 
Besides that, I have fine lines around my lips that are disappearing before my eyes so the Therapeutic Lip Creme  that came with my kit has been helping and the very slight plumping of my lips I believe have been helping too. Nothing like making a fish face inside that thing, I was actually worried that it would create more or deeper lines, but it hasn’t. Let me tell you a little about the Therapeutic Lip Creme, you not only put it on  your lips but around your lips too, i was worried I was going to break out from it, but luckily for me it was light enough that I have had no problems with it! 🙂 The Therapeutic Lip Creme too can be used to lubricate your Luscious Lips lip pump… instructions are in the kits. 🙂
 
I first heard of this product years ago on The Doctors and I’ve wanted to try one ever since, as a safe alternative to collagen injections or surgery to increase the size of your lips up to 50%!  I can’t say how exciting this is and I can feel the increase of blood supply to my lips even as I sit here writing this, I can feel the tingle…ever been kissed for a long time, I had make out sessions that were all kissing for hours… and woke up still feeling the kisses on my lips, that is what the tingle feels like! 





I am excited at seeing, the slight results on my lips already and I haven’t even got to the “good part” yet! I can’t wait to see what the full regime does for me and my lips. And not only that, but I am excited to share with one lucky winner a prize of their own Luscious Lips Deluxe Kit, by Rejenuve, Inc. just like the kit I received! That is the pump along with their wonderful Therapeutic Lip Creme! 

The Luscious Lips, lip pump to fill out your lips and make them kissably fuller… no promises that your lips will look like Angelina Jolie, and it won’t last more than a few hours at a time, but why not have fun and check it out?

There are some other wonderful products at Rejenuve that will enhance the way you look too:

SORRY The Giveaway Has Ended!
 
Good Luck to all our friends!

Stopain Roll-on to Help You Get Some Relief and Make Muscles Go Ahhhh!

I was given the opportunity to try this Roll-on for pain relief.  I have a lot of muscle pain from Fibromyalgia, especially my neck and low back and it is hard to find relief from my pain there! If
you follow the above links, you can read specifics on how Stopain will help with relief!
I got my Stopain and looked up some information on the product, that is the old nurse in me!
Did you know 1 in 5 adults have some form of arthritis and it affects women more than men.
That figures as us women do the work around the house and in this day and age also hold a
job. Also when we hit menopause the decrease in estrogen causes our bones to become more
brittle and that adds to our (my) pain!  
Due to my pain, with the Fibromyalgia, I am unable to do what I used to be able to do around
the house, and I do take pain pills but don’t find them helping much with my pain relief, especially
in the bed at night.  What my husband does is apply the stop pain to my neck and low back and 
rubs it in and I can feel the relief for hours in my back.  I some times feel the Stopain may
help more than my pain pills!
There are 4 different Stopain products available on the market.  Per Stopain :
  • Stopain Extra Strength Formula
  • No drip spray
  • Clear, non-staining
  • Non-greasy
  • Light, vanishing scent
  • Hands-free application
  • Sprays from any angle
  • Contains 8% menthol

  • Stopain Original Strength Formula
  • No drip spray
  • Clear, non-staining
  • Non-greasy
  • Light, vanishing scent
  • Hands-free application
  • Sprays from any angle
  • Contains 6% menthol

  • Stopain Extra Strength Formula Roll On
  • Easy-to-use hands-free application
  • Non-greasy and non-staining
  • Fast-absorbing—penetrates deep
  • Light, vanishing scent
  • Contains 8% menthol

  • Stopain Gel
  • Contains 6% Menthol
  • Fast acting, long lasting pain relief
  • Light, pleasant scent
  • Non-greasy, Non-staining formula
  • Works on contact
  • Pharmacist Recommended
I love that they have all these choices available for you so you can pick your favorite application source for yourself.  I have been used to using a roll-on pain remover for quite 
some time and that is why I chose that source for my own use.  I have to say that I
really loved the Stopain product.  It helped remove my pain quicker and better than
the product I had been using and allowed me to rest easier at night!
