Have you heard of Phytoceramides Supplements?
If not, Dr Oz has called these supplements “The Natural Facelift!” As you know, I love Dr. Oz and for many things his advice has helped me out. And I have been testing out this supplement from Purely Holistic and I am loving the way it is caring for my skin. This product nourishes your skin from the inside out and helps support and plump up those problem areas that arise as you age. This is even great to maintain your natural youthful look before too many signs of aging start to appear on your face.
And this is not your typical Phytoceramides Supplement, this is the superior type since it is rice based! Here is what Purely Holistic has to say about their product:
Purely Holistic Phytoceramides use rice based Phytoceramides which have been clinically PROVEN to be SUPERIOR to Liowheat based Phytoceramides. CLINICAL STUDIES proved that rice based Phytoceramides were up to 33% more effective at improving the signs of aging skin than Wheat Phytoceramides.
Please be nice and give the product a try and post an honest review on their Amazon Sales page! Leaving a review will let others know what you think about this product, be honest and leave an unbiased review!
Disclaimer: I am fortunate enough to have this exclusive giveaway to offer all you wonderful readers! I am not affiliated with Purely Holistic. But Purely Holistic and I am running this giveaway together, to give you all the wonderful opportunity to try out this supplement. I did receive a free bottle of Phytoceramides Skin Care Supplement for a review through Tomoson, and not in exchange for this giveaway… this is just one of those special events for my readers.
I was lucky enough to receive the opportunity to run a review and a giveaway of Colloidal Gold Skin Care products by Jolie Femme 24K.
I received my package from this Luxury Line of Skin Care and I could have jumped for joy! Previous to receiving these Colloidal Gold containing products, I had heard about and studied up on Colloidal Gold Treatments for skin and all the wonderful properties of using this in skin care.
Here are just a few facts about Colloidal Gold:
It helps to bring blood to the skin area, which in return speeds up your cellular regeneration.
has active ingredients that work rapidly to give you immediate results
has a stable texture that has the ability to penetrate the skin fast, resulting in full absorption and no residues left behind.
has a gentle scent
No Animal Testing
valid for 24 Months after opening
Appropriate for all skin types
The products I received from Jolie Femme 24K:
24K Deep Facial Peeling – the product feels slightly warm on my skin as I rub it in. The products make my face feel soft, firm and yet not dry… it feels as smooth as can be. This product not only helps aging skin, but helps stop breakouts, smoothing the skin, reduces wrinkles and gets rid of dry patches and evens skin tone (including sun damage).
Note: I had problems charging my Camcorder, so I tried using my laptop to record. First Recording I forgot to turn on the microphone, redo and reapply the deep facial peeling. Second Recording after rinsing off the product, I checked the video and the sound was tinny sounding. third video, done without sound… was third application of the Deep Facial Peeling and my face became ruddy. I only recommend using this once a week. lol
With the Deep Facial Peeling, remember to wear your sunscreen!
The Extraordinary Effective Eye Serum and Eye Cream – these help with dark circles, discoloration, light infusing, firms the delicate eye area and more.
Here is a video where I show the products and show how to use the Jolie Femme 24K Gold products that I received.
Please note, it’s almost 1 am and I started this early this morning, multiple problems including trying to find a way to adjust the volume of the microphone headset so I wasn’t yelling at you, and the one sound video I recorded had to be dumped, the video was far too long. So voice over was my final solution. I would have given up, had it not been for the request of a video by Jolie Femme and the fact that I LOVE these products. 🙂
*Sorry Folks, I have been having technical difficulties it appears that Muvee, doesn’t like voice-over on my PC… I perfected it on my computer and it shows up in the program, but I try to save or upload it and the voice-over disappears. And yes I even tried it without the music… nothing is going my way with 2 days (and 3am of the 3rd day right now). I hope to have this fixed soon so I can do Jolie Femme Justice and have the voice over fixed by Muvee soon.
Update 6am and I did yet one more Voice-Over for the Review, I hope you like it… the new video is posted (above)! And Muvee contacted me, within a short while after I fixed this video, they will be online helping me repair the problem. 🙂 NICE!
Okay that all done, Come and enter the giveaway!*** (please read my disclaimer below)

Tommie Copper has once again honored me with the chance to review some more of their products on my blog.
Lets start off with a little history first, shall we? 🙂
Just like me, the inventor of Tommie Copper (Tommie Kallish) tried all sorts of support wear for his arthritis only to find that the products were bulky and uncomfortable to wear. Mr. Kallish then proceeded to try all sorts of fabrics out for himself until he found the one that worked best for him and his arthritis, the rest is history… Tommie Copper was born in 2010.
And just like any great company Tommie Copper keeps expanding and perfecting their line. The logo has recently changed, but the product is still as fantastic as ever, and I see some new and improved innovations in the new items offered. They now have “Innergywear”, their newest development in their compression line and an Active Fit Exercise Apparel line. Both of these have some amazing features, all of which you can look at on their page HERE.
Our Pain History:
Both my husband and I suffer from Fibromyalgia and Arthritis as well as Sciatica, including pain in hips and lower back. My husband injured his back about 7 years ago and became disabled. I have been disabled for many years with bad discs in my neck and back, as well as Lupus SLE. So we are quite the pair… together we may make one whole healthy person. lol Any-who these are the things that we are trying to address with Tommie Copper.
Experiencing Tommie Copper For Ourselves:
Several Months ago we received products to try out, yes this time hubby was included! Hubby was excited to receive his own Tommie Copper to try out and yet he had his doubts. My husband, like many of us, needs to experience the results for himself. Here was his chance, hubby received the Tommie Copper Men’s Short Sleeved Crew Neck Shirt and the Men’s Shorts to test out. I picked these for him, knowing how these could easily be worn year round, the material and the compression make these items easy to put underneath clothing when it gets chillier outside.
I already knew how wonderful Tommie Copper is. I have been wearing Tommie Copper since shortly after the company started in 2010. I already had the Women’s Short Sleeved V-Neck Top (from my first review) and the Women’s Tights (from my second review). The products I received for this review where, for my ankles and my hands and wrists. I received the Women’s Half Finger Gloves and the Women’s Ankle Sleeve. By the way the past reviews can be found in a search on my blog for Tommie Copper.
Having Experience Tommie Copper Before, I still check to make sure the compression wear is as great as ever. In the past I know that the stitching is perfect. The hems on the sleeves, neckline and bottom of the shirts and the tights are perfect too. They don’t cut corners, at least not in the past. As I wait for the items to come in the mail, I want to make sure that I check everything out as soon as the items arrive so that I can tell you how their products are today.
Important Note on Sizing your Tommie Copper:
It is worth while to take out the measuring tape to make sure you get the correct fit. If you don’t have a measuring tape, use a piece of string or yarn to measure with. Place the string or yarn around the area as instructed to measure and keep your fingers in place where the string or yarn meet. Then grab a ruler, yard stick (whatever you have to measure with) and line up your yarn or string and you should have your measurements.
Experiencing Tommie Copper for the first time (my husband):
The Mail Man came with my husband’s Tommie Copper, my husband brought in the bag containing his products and all he could say was, “this can’t be it, the package is far too light!” lol I had to laugh, as I recalled that this was my exact statement when I received my shirt from them years ago.
The package was opened and the shirt he was wearing instantly got thrown aside, as he tried on and modeled his new shirt for me. Mighty handsome shirt, he was amazed at how soft and lightweight the fabric was and how comfortable the compression in the shirt is. And of course the fit was perfect… *I type this as a pat myself on the back*. The shipment also included the shorts and he tried them on a little later.
I examined the men’s shorts, these shorts are a lot like bicycle shorts, the stitching is still perfect on them and the stretch at these hems and seams are great too… doesn’t feel like their will be any pinching on any areas with the items. Nice to see that Tommie Copper hasn’t cut any corners in the 4 years they’ve been in business, everything looks fantastic.
As time went on, I noticed that my husband is wearing his Tommie Copper shorts a lot, the shorts have become his favorite item for sleeping in. I asked him what he thought after several months of wear and he commented that the shorts really help him sleep as they help with the hip pain (he has an injured back and it has resulted in sciatic nerve pain and pain in the hips). He also wears the shirt, but not as often, he wears it when his shoulder (he broke it about 2 years back) is acting up and it helps his shoulders too.
Hubby is now sold on Tommie Copper for his arthritis pain, his injured shoulder, his back and hip pain. I am so glad to see he is having a great experience with Tommie Copper just as I have in the past.
My Experiencing Tommie Copper Again:
My turn now, I received my packages in the mail a day or so later and I was tickled pink to receive not just one ankle sleeve but 2 and a special order of one in blue. Their line has been updated since our products had arrived, they now have new colors and a new logo on their ankle sleeves. The timing of my receiving the offer to review Tommie Copper was perfect as I had had my ankles acting up for just over a month at that time.
As soon as I received my Tommie Copper, I put on the ankle sleeves right away and realized that it was indeed helping my ankles, but something was still wrong on one foot. I thought I would tough it out and wait to see if this would help…I finally saw a specialist and the problem wasn’t Tommie Copper, it was that I was aiming the compression wear at the ankle and my problem apparently (on the right foot) was from the Achilles Tendon. At that point and time I learned that the compression wear for the ankle wasn’t going to help the Achilles Tendon as the Foot Specialist said I needed full compression there… Tommie Copper didn’t hurt the Achilles Tendon, I did a while back as I heard a strange pop sound as I stood up on my tip toes to get something off a shelf. Because the compression wasn’t were I thought I needed it, it wasn’t helping much either.
Lesson learned, there is such a thing as heel pain that feels like it’s in the ankle but if the pain goes up the back of your lower leg, it could be Achilles Tendon problem. If this is the case it would be best go with Tommie Copper Compression socks for heel pain.
Now I did need the other compression Ankle Sleeve, I was over compensating with the other leg and foot for the injured one and that ankle was getting mighty “Angry” as I was told. So my Ankle Sleeve was indeed helping and it also helped that ankle as I wore the cotton-pickin Walking Boot on the other leg. The Ankle sleeve stabilized the other ankle that was now compensating for the walking boot being taller than any of my comfortable shoes. I could have worn a heel on my other foot, but what if I sprained that ankle? lol Yup, I could see it now! Yikes!
My half finger gloves have been a God send, my hands and wrists act up easily and I’ve had to wear my wrist braces on my wrists many times over the years. The strain of typing takes it’s toll over time as does all the work we’ve been doing on the garage replacing siding etc. I worked and helped out hubby as we hauled Hardie Board, cut and put up the new siding together… I realized my hands didn’t want to grip anymore and so I excused myself and ran in getting my Tommie Copper Gloves.
The rubberized lines on the palm of the gloves helped me grip when my hands felt like otherwise giving up. And once again, hands acting up I slipped on my gloves to work with caulking and painting the garage, the gloves have continued to helped support my hands and wrists. And the garage is not an easy task, it has a man-cave on one side and storage area on the other… it’s about as big as our house, without Tommie Copper and a bit of rest between doing work on the siding of the garage, Tommie Copper has once again come to my rescue and saved me a lot of pain.
Would I recommend Tommie Copper?
Yes! I am so pleased to see the latest expansion and additions to the Tommie Copper Line and can’t wait to see what comes next. They now have Sun Protection with zinc on some of their products too, the wicking action of their products make them all so easy to wear in the hot sun. I love the fact that their items can easily be worn under anything, I even wore the gloves under plastic gloves while painting.
The Gloves from Tommie Copper have more than helped me realized that although these products are great for pain, they are also great for preventing pain too… I would recommend this for anyone who is getting older, folks who are doing some manual labor that they aren’t (or are) used to, for me it prevented further injury and decreased pain. This is the same with our Tommie Copper Shirts, my tights and hubbys shorts from Tommie Copper… we’ve found it helps with nerve pain from sciatica, fibromyalgia, bad or injured spine and my lupus sle (a painful illness).
I would recommend this to Construction workers too! Check out the gloves if your hands cramp up or get painful, wrists as well! Not that I am a Construction Worker, but with my experiences as we continue to fix up our large Garage/Man-Cave/Storage Room exterior, I have see how much they can help prevent pain and I suspect prevent injury as well.
Tommie Copper continues to put out a wonderful product still today, they haven’t cut any corners on the products since the beginning. All seams, hems are wonderful, the stitches are great without gaps or bad tension. The stretch is still wonderful, the material is still lightweight, soft (softer than most t-shirts) and attractive as ever. No pinching or binding on any of the items we tried for this review.
In the end, Tommie Copper is perfect for me and my husband too. Thank you Tommie Copper!
I thank Tommie Copper for their patience with me as I got to their review, things have been nuts here (more so than usual) and I am so thankful to have their products supporting my body, hands and feet with their soft comfortable compression as it embraces my body.
