FL Mom's Blog: Review of Purity Brush (toothbrush review)

Disclosure: I received the toothbrush at a reduced price for my fair and honest review. The opinions expressed are my own.

I had heard of bamboo and wooden toothbrushes a few years back, but I hadn't used one until recently. (I had planned to have this review up yesterday before I went to bed, but between work this past weekend and coming down with a sinus infection I wasn't feeling too great.) The bamboo toothbrush by Purity Brush has a bamboo handle and binchotan charcoal infused bristles. Binchotan charcoal is  antiviral, antibacterial, and antiviral in nature.   The bristles are comfortable to my gums and my teeth. It did take a bit of time to get used to using a brush that had less give to it, since it was a wooden one. I did like that it was ecominded, in the sense that it's biodegradable and it's vegan. It's also PBA-free! I did like mine! For more information, Charcoal Infused Biodegradable Toothbrush

Learn English, Speak English (app review)

Disclosure: I was given a section of the app for free in order to facilitate my review. The opinions expressed are my own.

Oh boy! Being an American, born and bred here in the USA, I really thought that I spoke English clearly. I'm starting to think that I don't after I reviewed an app called Learn English, Speak English!
Don't get me wrong, it's a really cool learning app! It's as if you have your own tutor available when you have the chance to take in a lesson on your phone or your tablet!

The section that I was able to review had to do with counting from 1 to 10, and it took you through the lesson multiple times. At first, I tried to not talk in my normal voice, and I didn't do well. After I used it for a bit, I spoke in my regular voice, and that's when I didn't do well, like around 70 % or less! It was definitely challenging, and I can imagine being a Spanish speaking person trying to learn English via the app. Definitely challenging and interesting! I do recommend it!

This one is from my iPhone!

New York Biology Anti Aging Cream (review)

Disclosure: I received the product for a reduced price for my honest and fair review, good or bad. The opinions expressed are my own!

I recently reviewed the New York Biology Eye Gel. On the jar it says: Resistem Stem Cell Technologies   Intensive Anti-Wrinkle Formula     Lifting- Firming-Hydrating  It contained amino acid complex, Vitamin E, Plant Stem Cell, Matrrixyl 3000, and hyaluronic acid.  Those pretty much make up the ingredients for helping your skin to look more youthful!

What I did was use it mostly at night, or at what was considered my bedtime that day! Occasionally I would use it prior to going to work at night. I'd press down the pump-type dispenser which was unique, and apply the cream in a patting motion around the eye area, my forehead, and occasionally all over my face! It felt soothing and cooling, but not in a stinging way! My face felt firmer and more hydrated after I used it. Unfortunately, my dark circles did not go away or reduce any! I did like the product, and didn't have any irritation issues with it. Sometimes products irritate my skin, but this one didn't. For more information, check them out at New York Biology

Areta Fingertip Pulse Oximeter (review)

Disclosure: I received the pulse oximeter for a very reduced price, for my honest review, good or bad. The opinions expressed are mine!

Hi everyone! Do you or a family member have asthma or COPD? Or are you a healthcare worker like me? I recently reviewed the Areta Fingertip Pulse Oximeter. It uses a graphing area above the pulse and the O2 saturation reading on the pulse oximeter! I used it at work one night so far, and on myself, my husband, and my son to check our saturation levels. All were within normal limits for the people it was used on. I plan to use it at work, when I am checking oxygen saturation levels on those who are short of breath, those who have pneumonia and I need to know how they are perfusing, and the list goes on.

It is handy to use and so easy to carry. It can be hung by the lanyard around the neck, on a belt around the waist (The carrier it comes in can secure via a belt.), or be put in a pocket. Me--- I prefer not to wear anything around the neck, I've almost choked in the past from residents who were confused pulling on things hing around my neck.  I like the canvas type of material that the pulse oximeter can be stored it, it's quite sturdy! It runs on 2 AAA batteries, and they are able to be replaced by removing the small panel the bottom of the oximeter.  It works well and I was quiet pleased with it. The only thing that I haven checked with it is a nail with red nail polish on it! Those tend to be the hardest for a pulse oximeter to read through!  All in all, I was really impressed by this pulse oximeter, and  I would have gladly paid full price for it!
