DelfogoRx Professional Vitamin C 22% Anti-Aging Serum Review


More Info:
YouTube



What I say:

I, like many others, find myself casing the fountain of youth these days... It's hard to believe, but just this month I turned the BIG 4-0-it's hard to believe that cause I feel like i was just in high school last year! I was
cursed as a teenager with oily skin that turned into a blessing as I got older because I have every few wrinkles. But I still want to fight back Father Time and I am using Mother Nature in a bottle. For almost a month now I have been using DelfogoRx Professional Vitamin C 22% Anti-Aging Serum. I love the fact that the serum comes with an easy to use dropper. It is easy to control the amount of product that I want to use, and a little does a long way. The vitamin C serum goes on smoothly and absorbs quickly. It does not leave my skin sticky or feel like I have a film on my face. So far I am extremely happy with this product my skin feels smoother and looks brighter and feels firmer every week. DelfogoRx Professional Vitamin C 22% Anti-Aging Serum does cost a little more than some of the other Vitamin C serums on the market, but in the end you get what you pay for and this bottle will last you a while. I say it's definitely worth the money and the healthy glowing skin that in provides-so invest in your skin care.

Vitamin C is critical for your body and plays an important role in maintaining healthy, resilient skin. While young skin is full of vitamin C, aging skin naturally loses this nutrient over time. Other factors like exposure to UV light, pollutants and cigarette smoke compound the decline of vitamin C, contributing to signs of aging. The good news is that you can fight back by replenishing your skin's vitamin C levels to help to combat and even reverse time's effect on your face.

Wrinkles: One of the most powerful functions of vitamin C is its role in the production of collagen, a protein that gives your skin its elasticity. As you age, collagen breaks down and wrinkles begin to form. Stabilizing your skin's levels of vitamin C can help to counteract wrinkles formation by increasing collagen production.

Age Spots: When it comes to treating age spots, you don't need chemical peels and lasers - it turns out that vitamin C can have almost the same results! Age spots are essentially sun damage, and vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, shown to reduce the number of sunburned cells as well as reverse age-related damage to skin. While it is not a replacement for sunscreen, vitamin C protects against and may repair UV damage like discoloration and fine lines.What they say:
SkinPro introduces the most potent Vitamin C serum ever introduced.

For the first time ever, cosmetic pharmacist Irwin Grams has been able to produce a formula with a Vitamin C concentration of 22%. This serum also contains an unheard of 0.8% dose of Ferulic Acid along with 2% Vitamin E.

To compare to leading brands, Skinceutical's C E Ferulic (MSRP $153.00), contains only 15% Vitamin C, 0.5% Ferulic Acid and 1% Vitamin E and it is considered to be an industry leader and perrenial best seller.

This professional anti-aging serum contains pure hyaluronic acid and is dispensed by way of a medical dropper. 

This is the most potent Vitamin C serum that has ever been released and it is available now on Amazon.com with a Complete Satisfaction Guarantee.

Here are the benefits of using this serum:

- Stimulates collagen synthesis to make your skin appear many years younger and significantly more vibrant.
- Reduces the signs of aging and diminishes the appearance of photo damage through the new science of the stimulation of collagen production.
- The most advanced environmental protection against all forms of UVA, UVB and infrared radiation A.
- Increases the skin firmness and elasticity upon application, which replenishes the vital lipids in order to reduce wrinkles.
- Acts as a super antioxidant that also enhances the protection of sunscreen against damaging solar rays to better protect the skin.

What I say:

What they say:
SIMPLY SPROUTED.
What do you get when you add sprouted whole grains & seeds to a tortilla chip? A Way Better Snack!

So when you share these deliciously sprouted chips, you’re actually improving someone’s well-being. You’re the best. Still good & crunchy. Still great with salsa. Just better for you. Doesn’t that make snacking better too?
OUR STORY
It all started with a simple vision to create a better snack. We wondered, wouldn’t it be great to go back to a time when the food we ate was actually nutritious and good for you. You know, before decades of environmental harm and mega food conglomerate processing wiped out most of the nutrients which used to be abundant in the food your grandparents ate. To make products you could feel good about eating again and sharing with others. Well, with that in mind, we decided to do just that. And we were led to the miracle of germination (you might know it as sprouting). Now we know that nutritionists and naturalists have been touting the incredible nutritional benefits of sprouting for years. And we knew how sprouting unlocked all the “good” that is inherent in all grains, seed and beans and brings them back to life (nutritionally speaking). So we thought, why then couldn’t we combine the powerful benefits of sprouting to a great tasting snack? You know sort of like those old TV commercials with that guy and girl tripping into each other with their chocolate and peanut butter. Anyway, you get the picture.

So, supported by the memories of simpler days gone by, we began to craft our products. And after many tries, we can say we’re proud to share Way Better Snacks with you. All are high in omega 3’s, antioxidants and other vital nutrients, and all are low in sodium and saturated fat. Way Better Snacks! They pretty much named themselves.

So grab a bag of Way Better Snacks, sit back, kick your feet up and think about some great old memories of simpler days gone by. And Enjoy!

Mother's Therapy Organics Review and Giveaway



More Info:
Mothers Therapy Organics
Facebook
Twitter

What I say:
The very first thing that stands out for me about these products was the smell-crisp and clean cucumbers! Oh my gosh, how I love the smell of these-no over powering chemical smell. But these products are much more than a delightful smell-they products that help keep us safe from germs yet are gentle on the skin. Quick absorbing and no drying formula is great during the winter months. My kids and I love the fact that they make a product for kids too. The Mothers Therapy Organics kids hand sanitizer is for little germ fighters-even has a germ fighting super hero on the label.  These products would also make a great gift for any occasions.

I was sent 2 products to try:
Mothers Therapy Organics Germ Fight'n Hand Lotion-
A small dab of Mother’s Therapy Organics™ Germ-fight’n Hand Lotion prior-to and after a diaper change keeps baby — and yourself — healthy and clean.
Natural citrus essential oils and extracts power through germs naturally while soothing aloe vera encourages multiple daily use.
The alcohol-free clean smell and non-greasy formula is water-based and not thick like some lotions that stick to the top of skin.
Mothers Therapy Organics Organic Hand Sanitizer-
Because of it’s 99.9% germ-kill ratio and just as importantly for kids, it’s quick-dry properties, we have chosen natural alcohol as the active ingredient in our Hand Sanitizer. Contrary to popular belief, an alcohol-based hand sanitizer can leave skin softer than before use!
Mother’s Therapy Organics uses the purest organic and natural ingredients. As the natural alcohol evaporates, it leaves behind our skin-softening aloe vera-based lotion which becomes infused into the skin so no extra rubbing is required. The end result? A non-greasy hand sanitizer that can be used as often as needed without the worry of damage to sensitive skin.

Mothers Therapy Organics have also offered to do a giveaway too

What they say:
Mother’s Therapy Organics™ is a woman-owned company that strives to provide parents with healthy options for our children.

Buffalo Wing Turns 50 with the good taste of Franks Hot Sauce


More Info:
Franks Red Hot Sauce
Facebook
YouTube

I'll admit I am not a big wings fan-But I love chicken and I love Franks Red Hot SauceFranks Red Hot Sauce has spice without being overly hot. I can enjoy it without feeling like I am going to die-enjoy with flavor without all the heat. Franks Red Hot Sauce is great to use at get togethers or just everyday meals. I have included a recipe that I make monthly that that includes
Franks Red Hot Sauce! Try it and let me know what you think!

Cheesy Chicken Spaghetti with Franks

Ingredients: 
5-6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts or 1 whole chicken fryer
Franks Red Hot Sauce1 - 12 oz package spaghetti noodles
1 - 16 oz (1 lb) package Cream Cheese
1 - 10.5 oz can cream of chicken soup
1 - 14 oz can chicken broth or 2 cups reserved homemade broth
1 - stick margarine (1/2 Cup)
1 - 8 oz package shredded mild or sharp cheddar cheese
1 - small onion, chopped


Directions:
Fill a big stock pot with water. Clean and rinse whole fryer or chicken pieces. Add chicken, I like to add a little seasoning salt, pepper and Franks Red Hot Sauce. Wash hands after handling chicken.

Let the chicken come to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer chicken until done. Cook whole fryers about 2 hours and chicken breasts or pieces 45-50 minutes. Remove chicken from pot and place on a plate to cool. Drain the broth through a strainer and reserve.

Cook the spaghetti per package directions. Instead of cooking the spaghetti in water, we are going to use the reserved chicken broth.

Add spaghetti and bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer noodles until al dente. While spaghetti noodles are cooking start de-boning the chicken (make sure it is cool enough to handle) or break chicken breasts into smaller pieces.

Chop up onion and set aside. Melt margarine in a small skillet and add the vegetables. Sauté onion until they are tender and translucent in color. When noodles are done, drain and set aside.

If you are not using canned chicken broth, reserve 2 cups of the cooked broth. In a large bowl, combine cream cheese, chicken broth and cream of chicken soup and Franks Red Hot Sauce to taste.

Place in microwave and cook on low for 5-7 minutes or until mixture is smooth and cheese is melted. (You can also use the defrost setting).

To the cheese mixture add cooked onion with butter, spaghetti noodles and chicken pieces. Stir to combine.

Spray a 9x 13 inch baking dish with cooking spray and add combined mixture. Top finished casserole with 8oz of shredded cheddar cheese.

Place casserole in a preheated 350 degree oven and bake for about 45 minutes or until cheese is golden brown and casserole is bubbly. Remove from oven let cool and serve.

Can me topped with more Franks Red Hot Sauce, cheese and sour cream! Serve with a salad and bread.

This was my first experience with Penny Auctions Canada and how it works is really interesting. Their website is different from most in that you can place bids on live auctions. You can also buy for a set price if you don’t want to wait for the auction but personally I think bidding is all part of the shopping fun! Items listed at cute, affordable and unique. All items would make a great gift for yourself or others. These bracelets are really trendy these days, so I have to say my 10 year old daughter has been wearing mine to show and it's really holding up well to her wear and tear. I love the fact that is adjustable and fits her wrist and  mine, so it's pretty much a one size fits all product. It's a great product for the price and you will get stopped daily if not hourly with the question-Where did you get that?
“Penny Auctions are pay per bid and require the purchasing of bids.” So basically you first have to purchase bids for .75 each and they come in many different batch sizes so you can buy as many or as little as you want. I actually like that they charge for bids so then you get serious people only and people can’t just drive up the price of the auction unless they are serious, like a certain other site I know! Then you just pick what you want to bid on and make a bid! For more information on how it all works you can visit their how it works section!

Now if you don’t want to pay for an auction they also have daily deals where you don’t have to purchase a bid to place a bid on something and then the rest of the steps are the same!

Penny Auctions has a huge variety of basically everything under the sun to bid on. And right now my readers can get a special discount by using the code Tomoson25 to get 25 FREE bids with a 25 bid pack purchase. Happy bidding!

What they say:
Ulysses S. Grant was President, the population of America hovered at 39 million, and the telephone was still a pipe dream, when in 1870 J. Herman Pine hung out a confectionery shingle on 8th Street above Walnut in Philadelphia and, along with his brother, sold their first batch of what they called 'Pine Brothers Glycerine Tablets.' In an attempt to relieve his own sore throat and those of his family members, Mr. Pine, a former German confectionery maker, determined that by combining the soothing natural qualities of glycerin with the healing properties of gum acacia, he could sooth and mitigate the mild discomfort of a sore throat. Add in some natural flavoring and a sweetener and voila, Pine Brothers Softish Throat Drops were born. "I have discovered something," Pine wrote, "which will give quick throat relief to thousands afflicted as I was." He added,"Perhaps I won't make much money out of this. But I can make people happy, and that's more important than money." Mr. Pine was being unduly modest, as his "discovery" would become one of the most successful, most delicious and most unique throat lozenges in the world. Nor has the recipe changed appreciably since it was first introduced to the public over 140 years ago.

In 1930 Pine Brothers was sold to the Life Savers Company and continued to flourish. Known for its 'soft drop consistency,' Pine Brothers lozenges became a favorite of adults and children alike. The product, which attracted healthiest sales in the eastern and northern states, due to its icy winters, reached its peak popularity in the 1970's. The company was sold by Life Savers, and then, having been re-sold and acquired a number of times, found itself essentially rudderless and under appreciated; this despite a legion of loyal consumers. Cost cutting changes were made to the original recipes, packaging became stale and marketing non-existent; Pine Brothers began to be made overseas. Sales declined.

Recently, Pine Brothers was acquired by the creator and former owner of Airborne, Victoria Knight-McDowell, for her new company 3 Sisters Home Products™. Much time and effort has been spent locating the original Pine Brothers recipes, redesigning the packaging, and creating an exciting yet classic new look. Pine Brothers is once again being made in America, and was launched nationally in fall 2011. And indeed, old Mr. Pine has succeeded yet again in "making people happy." God bless him!
