Pure Garcinia Cambogia Extract PLUS Detox Cleanse System[Review]

I jumped at the chance to review a weight loss product. I was given the opportunity to test the Pure Garcinia Cambogia Extract PLUS Detox Cleanse System I was so excited. It was just passed Thanksgiving and I thought I would love to shed those extra pounds that I gained eating those extra pumpkin pie slices.



I ordered it from Amazon.com and was happy that it was delivered within 48 hours of my order date. I found two bottles inside the box. No other form of instructions were included.

I started taking the pills on Monday morning. The Slender Cleanse states to take 2 capsules in the morning and 2 capsules in the evening. Something to be aware of, is not to take these capsules longer than 10-15 days. These capsules contain ingredients that will cause an evacuation of the intestines. Most of the ingredients such as Buckthorn, Psyllium, Cascara Sagrada are all gentle laxatives. But with these laxatives you need to be cautious to your body becoming dependent on them. Of course you will lose weight from cleaning out your intestines, but it’s not always a good thing to do. These pills did work, but did not make a difference in my weight.


Make sure you drink plenty of water when using this diet kit.

The Garcinia Cambogia Advanced bottle said to take 2 capsules daily. But there are different instructions on Amazon page. It states to take 2 capsules three times a day and 30 minutes before eating. I tried both different instructions, I noticed that three times a day keeps my cravings away. Taking just two capsules daily isn’t enough for me. If you want to suppress those sweet, sugary or junk food cravings this should work for you. However, if you are looking to lose serious weight this product might be disappointing for you as it is for me.

I weighed myself prior to starting this product. After 8 days of taking this diet kit I haven’t noticed any decreased bloating.  Monday I went to my doctor for a (unrelated) appointment. I was weighed and had gained 4 pounds. Take away 2-3 pounds for clothes & shoes and I still gained one pound. I thought maybe it’s because I had walked an hour a day and maybe added some muscle to my legs. I also measured my waist, hips, bust and thighs to see if there was any difference after I started using this diet kit. Measuring myself again before completing this review and again there was no change in any of my earlier measurements.

What I DID NOT like about Pure Garcinia Cambogia Extract PLUS Detox Cleanse System:

  • I did not lose any weight.
  • Price. At $36 not worth the cost with high expectations of losing weight.

What I DID  like about Pure Garcinia Cambogia Extract PLUS Detox Cleanse System:

  • Easy to swallow capsules with no bitter taste
  • Easy to follow directions
  • There is a “No Questions Asked A to Z Money Back Guarantee”
  • No Jittery feeling

Would I recommend this diet kit of Pure Garcinia Cambogia Extract PLUS Detox Cleanse System? No. Based on my personal experience. If a good friend wanted to buy this product I would tell them…use it only to suppress cravings and or hunger.  You know, like during the holidays when we tend to eat more than usual. Do not expect major weight lose while using this diet kit.

Unilever Dry Spray VoxBox [Product Review]

I have never been fond of spray antiperspirants. I was given a 3 ounce bottle of Degree Motion Sense antiperspirants Fresh Energy Dry Spray to test in exchange for my opinion after using this product. After using this product I still do not like spray antiperspirants. There  is still a cloud of spray that floats around and made me cough. The dry spray is still cold in my armpits, but does have a dryness to it when applied. The Fresh Energy scent smells really good.

 degree motion sense dry spray

If you don’t spray this too close to your armpits it’s not cold, however, I tried it once and yes it’s cold. Hold it about 5-6 inches away and it’s nowhere near that shocking temperature. I never know how much to spray for enough odor protection, maybe it’s  because I’m so used to stick deodorants.

Degree MotionSense Dry Spray #trydry

What I DID NOT like about Degree Motion Sense Antiperspirant Spray:

  • The cloud of product that appears when product is being used. (Made me cough).
  • Degree Dry Spray claims to last up to 48 hours. Not for me, I felt like I needed to spray more half through my day.
  • Price at $6 something a bottle. I don’t buy spray deodorants so I’m not sure if this is a good value or not. I’m used to spending no more than $4 for the sticks.

Degree MotionSense Dry Spray #trydry

What I DID like about Degree Motion Sense Antiperspirant Spray:

  • I liked the open/close button at the top of the bottle. Slide it forward to use the spray and slide it down to lock the spray. I think that would be great for having it loose in a gym bag or in a travel bag.
  • The Fresh Energy scent was wonderful. Fresh, Clean and reminded me of spring flowers. When used properly the Fresh Energy scent lingers for a while. You will notice it when you move around a lot. There area where it was sprayed will still have the scent there. It is a strong scent, which I do not mind at all.
  • There is no residue left on my clothes. No stains in the armpits either, which I have noticed when using stick deodorants.

Bullseye Silicone Dildo [Review]

I have been given the opportunity to review the Pleasure Works Bullseye Silicone Dildo from Good Vibrations. The box itself reminds me of a quart of milk, perhaps a bit wider. The outside of the box gives pretty good product details, even states that the box is recyclable. The box is sealed with tape and the dildo is inside a plastic bag.

Dildos have not been my favorite sex toy to use, however the Bullseye has changed my mind.  I was briefly disappointed when I looked at the box. The quote “never judge a book by its cover” popped into my mind. Be open-minded, I thought. You’re doing this for testing purposes, to share your opinion & experience of this product.

Bullseye Dildo

Looking at the dildo, it’s a pearlized white with subtle lines that encompass the dildo. I have one other dildo. The first thing I noticed about that dildo was the awful smell it had. The Bullseye dildo does not have that smell.  The very first thing I did before I even started to handle the dildo was to wash it with some soap & hot water. A huge plus in my book is that it’s waterproof. This makes for easy cleaning, easy care. However, since it is 100% silicone it also can collect dirt & dust easily. I dropped it on the hardwood floor when hitting it against the table, when I picked it up it had dog hair, my hair and debris from the floor stuck to it. I just rinsed it off with warm water. It air-dried on the countertop afterwards. The base is flat which allows it to stand. I would suggest keeping the box or keep it covered when not in use. I suggest a more thorough cleaning prior to using it during any sexual activity.

I decided to use some lube with the Bullseye, because I was a bit intimidated by the head of the dildo. The dildo has a flat rounded base, slightly curved with a bulbous head.  The Bullseye measures at approximately 6 inches with approximately 5 1/2 of insertable inches. The head measure approximately 1 1/2 inches in diameter and the shaft is approximately 1.25 inches. The base is approximately 2 1/2 inches in diameter.

When I first used the Bullseye, it did take some getting used to. I have a very small pelvis, sex toys that look big to some look enormous to me. I felt the fullness of the bulbous head, the thickness of the shaft. And I loved it every minute of it. Waves of pleasure were received by the Bullseye dildo while I used it. When my spouse used it on me it seemed too long, hitting my cervix causing me to move in discomfort. The Bullseye dildo is very flexible and bendable. It can be bent so that the tip touches the side of the base. That’s how flexible this dildo is.

What I DID NOT like about the Bullseye Dildo:

  • At times it become uncomfortable to hold by hand while in use.
  • Difficult to keep clean, collects debris, dust, hair. But very easily washed and cleaned.

Bullseye Dildo

What I DID like about the Bullseye Dildo:

  • The pearlized white color with a subtle design throughout the dildo.
  • 100% silicone. There is no foul, rubbery or plastic odor to this product.
  • Waterproof. Easy to clean, but difficult to keep clean when not in use.
  • Can be used by male or female.
  • Can be used with or without a harness.
  • Can be used for both vaginal and anal pleasure (g-spot and prostate).
  • Made in the USA.
  • It’s curved and very flexible, bendable.

I really enjoyed the Pleasure Works Bullseye Dildo. I no longer look at this dildo with disappointment. Now, what I really want is to get a harness to use with it. I’d like to test it with a harness, along with using it on a man for their opinion. I wonder how intimidating, if at all it would be to a man who is doesn’t get pegged often. 

Read about my pegging fantasy here.

Would I recommend the Pleasure Works Bullseye Dildo to my friends? Yes. Yes I would. Why? Because it’s a toy I would call “universal.” It can be used by & for either gender. A woman can use it on her lover; man or woman, hand-held or harness. A man can use it on his lover; man or woman. And it can be easily added into a couple’s lovemaking or sex scene. It’s a good dildo to own.

Butterfly Bliss Waterproof Vibrator [Sex Toy Product Review]

I was excited to receive the Butterfly Bliss Vibrator from Good Vibrations. Anything that vibrates excites me, the anticipation of future orgasms fill my mind. The packing is simple and the vibrator itself is wrapped inside a clear plastic bag, taped shut.

My Butterfly Bliss Vibrator is a matte teal color, it’s also available in pink. The vibrator is about 7.25 inches long with 1.25 at the widest part. There is 3 insertable inches of the vibrator with a bulb-like head. The outside of the box does state the insertable tip is 2 3/4 x 1 1/8″.  The bottom unscrews for the 2 AAA batteries which are not included. The control/power button is located at the very bottom of the vibrator. The 3 inches insertable inches of the vibrator is flexible. The Butterfly wings & antenna are also very flexible.

What I DID NOT like about the Butterfly Bliss Vibe:

  • It’s operated by 2 AAA batteries.
  • The battery life (even with brand new batteries) is not long. I have already used three sets of batteries. One set of brand new batteries I used in one day after using it for about 2 1/2 hours.
  • Price. It is a bit more than I am willing to pay for a product like this one. At GoodVibes.com it’s $29.00. Prices do vary depending on what site you are looking at. 
  • Is that the butterfly area must be cleaned very well. Otherwise fluids dry collecting more debris. Make sure to move around the butterfly wings, inspect the lines of the body of the butterfly. Even when I thought the area was clean, I noticed debris had collected, mostly by the wings. 
  • The vibrator can get warm while using it for a while. 
  • The intensity of the vibrator can be hard on those who have health issues with hands, wrists and fingers.

What I DID like about the Butterfly Bliss Vibe:

  • Waterproof
  • Dual power/control button. Simple to use. If you only use the low setting you have to pass the higher two settings to reach the off option.
  • G-spot stimulation while also stimulating clitoris. The intense vibration can be felt in the bulbous head along with the butterfly area.
  • Silicone. There is no bad odor to this product (like I have experienced in the past). It is silicone so it does pick up debris.

The Butterfly Bliss Waterproof Vibrator is a nice little novelty. Not a vibrator I would recommend to my friends. Why? Because I’ve been spoiled with USB chargeable vibrators. Don’t get me wrong, some battery-operated vibrators work great. I just don’t like that this one seems to suck the battery juice down in a short amount of time. 

When I used this the last time I kept thinking “How many hours I have used this? I’m gonna be pissed off if the batteries start to weaken and I’m on the verge of my orgasm!” 

There is also something about the way it “fits” or “doesn’t fit.” “One size” does not fit all. The good thing about the Butterfly Bliss vibrator is that is very bendable. Once inserted the Butterfly Bliss can be slightly angled so that the butterfly’s antenna & wings can surround the clit, if it can (comfortably) reach your clit. Really take time to know your body, because in my opinion this vibrator will not fit every women in the way it is intended to.

InstaNatural Advanced Repair Scar Gel [Product Review]

I had surgery on my foot in May 2015. I have searched for a scar treatment for the incisions that were left. I had tried a few different scar treatments and have not had a lot of success. Scar Gel by InstaNatural

I even spoke with my dermatologist and my surgeon for some recommendations for scar treatment. They both stated that I have what is known as a Hypertrophic scar. They also suggested a product or two, but again not a lot of success. 

I was given a chance to review Advanced Repair Scar Gel by InstaNatural. In exchange for my honest opinion of the product after I finished using it.

I have used Advanced Repair Scar Gel for a few weeks now. In my honest opinion I have not noticed any major differences in my scar. My primary doctor told me that scars can take up to a year to completely heal. “When the scar turns completely white then it’s finished healing.” I remember her saying that during my physical. 

What I DID like about InstaNatural Advanced Repair Scar Gel

  • All Natural
  • Made in the USA

What I DID NOT like about InstaNatural Advanced Repair Scar Gel

  • There is a woody, autumn leaves type of aroma.
  • There is stiff feeling left on the skin after application.
  • Price. At almost $30 for 1 ounce

I would not recommend this to my friends or family based on my personal experience. I think that using this product, massaging it into the skin is what might help with the healing of the scar. That’s about it, massaging the skin being key. After I used Advanced Repair Scar Gel I felt the tightness in my skin and sometimes it was uncomfortable at times. Once the gel dried completely there was no stiff feeling left. There is slight aroma left behind after application. Sadly, this product did not work for me as well as I would have liked.

Crest Pro-Health Advanced Mouthwash [Review]

I received the purple Crest Pro-Health Advanced Mouthwash. I use it both in the morning & in the evening after I brush my tooth. In the evening I floss before using Crest Pro-Health Mouthwash. I noticed the typical sting of the mouthwash, but I have felt a stronger sting with similar products. The longer I swished it around in my mouth the more intense the sting/burn became.  The aroma of the Crest Pro-Health Advanced Mouthwash was pleasant, it’s a winterfresh mint kind of smell. I must have a cavity starting because once the mouthwash hit that area it hit a nerve. The bottle states to wait for food or drinks for 30 minutes, but by that time there is an unwanted taste in my mouth. My mouth felt clean, but that aftertaste was a bit much for me. I kept rubbing my tongue along my teeth because my teeth almost felt kind sticky, a film or protective coating.

Swishing Crest Pro-Health Advanced Mouthwash

My spouse uses mouthwash more often than I do, at work mostly. This was a welcome change to the other brands that he normally uses. He liked this product just as well, if not better than the brands. The plus side of Crest Pro-Health Mouthwash is that it is alcohol-free. There is no hard alcohol smell when you open the bottle. I noticed that there is a safety cap on the bottle, it must be gripped at the marks on the sides to twist off. This is good for those that have little ones who might be curious about the bright purple liquid in the bottle.

This mouthwash is an addition to the daily dental hygiene and the assistance of preventing activities in addition to regular dental exams.

What I Didn’t like about Crest Pro-Health Advanced Mouthwash:

  • The stinging sensation the longer it stays in your mouth
  • There is after taste that is left in your mouth.
  • Recommended a wait of 30 minutes before having any food or drink.

What I Do like about Crest Pro-Health Advanced Mouthwash:

  • There is no strong alcohol smell or taste. It’s 100% alcohol free
  • Safety (twist) cap
  • It does give a clean fresh feel to the teeth.
  • The price is reasonable at $6

Crest Pro-Heath Advanced Mouthwash

I would recommend this to family & friends. There is a certain amount of burning or stinging when using any mouthwash or oral rinse. However, Crest  Pro-Health Advanced doesn’t have a strong burning sensation compared to other mouthwashes I have used in the past.
