August Glossybox Review And Giveaway! International Competition!

Hi everyone!  Today I wanted to share with you the August 2016 Glossybox, and start a new giveaway so that you have a chance to win one for free!  If you do not already know about Glossybox, then please read my main page HERE on it!  I was so excited when I received the August box in the mail because the contents were worth several times the price that I paid for the box, and I really liked the items!  Keep in mind that when you subscribe, you select your preferences and they send you products based on your selections.  So everyone may get some items that are the same, and others will be different based on your beauty profile.  So here is what was in mine this month…

  • Wella Professionals Oil Reflections Smoothing Oil– This oil is very effective and smells nice after it is applied to my hair.  Since I have started using this product I have noticed that my hair looks much healthier and smoother!  The oil is great for after using the flat-iron.  It is ideal for all hair types to restore damaged hair.  I will definitely buy more of this when it runs out!  I really like it that much!

  • De Bruyere After Sun Lotion Monoi– This lotion is so amazing!  Not only does it smell heavenly, but it has that signature tropical scent that I love!  The lotion has a thin consistency, but it is very effective for moisturizing dry “sun-kissed skin” I really enjoy the smell and an interesting thing is that one of the ingredients used in this was used in ancient medicine and sacred ceremonies!  How cool!  This is another one that I will buy after this is gone!

  • Too Faced Mascara Melt Off Cleansing Oil Waterproof Mascara Dissolver– The name is a mouthful, but this is actually a product I have been waiting for!  My eyes are sensitive so when I remove mascara I want a quick and painless process.  This product does just that!  It is super easy to apply on eyelashes and a few wipes downward is all it takes to remove your mascara with ease!  Thank you Too Faced!  Very handy to have in your purse!

  • Invisibobble The Traceless Hair Ring– I saw this in my Glossybox first and I must admit, I giggled!  It looks like something straight out of the 80’s!  I do have to say that after wearing it though, I was amazed!  It does not kink the hair and leaves it damage-free.  It has a light but firm hold, and caused me fewer headaches than regular hair ties.  Overall, I really like it but I wish it would have come in a black color!

  • Trifle Cosmetics Lip Parfait Buttery Lip Cream– This is a great lipstick!  It has cute artwork on the outside, and has a lovely scent to it!  The color is a peach tone with a matte creamy style.  It is compact and completely 100% cruelty-free!  This is also infused with cocoa butter to moisturize the lips!  Love it!

  • Borghese Brightening Mud Mask For Face And Body– This mud mask is perfect for my skin!  It really leaves my skin feeling refreshed after every use!  The mask has an aloe scent to it and a pink pigment to it as well.  It feels like a mask from a quality spa.  This company also dates back centuries to a princess who created her own beauty product line using ingredients found in Rome!  What a neat history!

So it is pretty obvious that you need to order one!  Normally Glossyboxes come with 5 products, but this one comes with 6 and they are nice ones!  And you can use one of the promo codes below to make the deal even sweeter by getting 3 for the price of 1!  Head over to their website now and get glossy!  You can also enter the giveaway through the link below to have a chance to win a box for free!  And remember glossy-fans, next month is a special edition box that will have special items and beautiful art on the box!  I love to collect them all!  Thank you so much for reading, and for all of your support!

Orico Surge Protector + USB Charging Station Review And Giveaway!

Hello everyone!  I wanted to share with you another great product that I just got in from Orico.  It is the Orico 4-Outlet Surge Protector With 5 USB Charging Ports!  This is the most classy surge protector I have ever seen and I love it!  This can be purchased from Amazon or Newegg for around $35.  Today I am going to tell you a little bit about this product, my experience using it, and give you a chance to win one for free!  So let’s get started!

This unit has a very nice design to it and comes in either black or white.  I chose the black version because I felt that it would look nicer in the room I used it in.  There is a little slot that is perfect for setting your phone in while it is charging!  I love that feature and it works great with my large phone.  This is especially helpful when watching a show while the phone is charging.  If you have a thicker phone case, it may not work though.  It is also safer to dock the phone there because it is less likely that someone will step on it or knock it off of the table.

I also like that the top of it is completely flat because I can set things on it while they charge like my tablet or bluetooth speaker.  Another great feature is that the lids to the outlets can be closed when the outlet is not being used.  It just looks more organized that way and is a little safer too!  The USB charging ports work well charging different devices at different power levels, and it charges my phone quicker than my other charging hub.  These USB ports also help this to look more organized because instead of having the plug and cord to your charger, you can just connect the cord.

I hope that this review helped you to decide that this is the right product for you!  I think that you will find this to be very useful in any room that it is used, and it will look nice while it protects your precious tech products.  I learned my lesson years back when a storm surge erased Windows off of my laptop!  You simply cannot use an old and beat-up power strip without taking a gamble with your tech.  If you would like a chance to win one for free, then please enter the giveaway through the link below!  Thank you for reading and good luck!

Orico Aluminum USB3.0 10-Port Hub Review!

Hello everyone!  I wanted to share with you another great product that I just got in from Orico.  It is the Aluminum 10-Port Super Speed USB3.0 Hub!  This thing has 7 USB3.0 Ports and 3 Charging Ports!  It is very durable, will charge and connect everything you have, and great for travel!  This can be purchased from Newegg or Amazon for around $40.  Today I am going to tell you a little bit about this product and my experience using it!  So let’s get started!

Now I really enjoy this device because everything connects via USB these days!  Even the keyboard and mouse usually use this connection now.  This is about the same size as a 16 ounce bottle of water in height and width, and is about and inch and a half deep at it’s biggest part.  The slim depth really helps it to stay out of the way, and it can fit in many places because of this!  It does not scratch easily because it has a rugged aluminum body.  There is no wiggle to the USB ports when I plug a device in.

I use this at my computer center!  It quickly replaced my other USB hub that I was using because it only had 4 ports.  This one is perfect for me because my mouse, keyboard, hard drive dock, and phone all connect to the hub!  Plus, it can charge the devices that I usually charge at my computer area which are my power bank, bluetooth headphones, and tablet!  And I still have a couple left over after all that, wow!  Surely I will fill them up soon!  This fits between my monitor and hard drive perfectly, and is easy to take with me in my laptop carrying bag.

I hope that this review helped you to decide that this is the right product for you!  I think that you will find all that you could possibly need in this hub, because I really do not know how they could have made it any better!  It is built to last and will give you all the functionality you would want from a USB hub, and more!  Thank you so much for reading and following!

Orico Tool-Free Hard Drive Dock Review And Giveaway!

Hello everyone!  I wanted to share with you another great product that I just got in from Orico.  It is the Orico Tool Free USB3.0 to SATA Hard Drive Dock!  This device works to dock both 2.5 inch and 3.5 inch hard drives!  It works right out of the box without any drivers or downloads so it is easy to use!  This can be purchased from Amazon or Newegg for around $25. Today I am going to tell you a little bit about this product, my experience using it, and give you a chance to win one for free!  So let’s get started!

This device is really handy to have around just in case!  You can use a hard drive from an old computer or buy one online, and then just dock it in this unit to access it from any computer.  So this can be really helpful to access photos or videos on a crashed computer, which is exactly why I wanted one in the first place!  A hard drive can also be used like a giant thumb drive and you can back up important files or data there.  It is great to have a backup of all my important photos and videos!  Just make sure you do not disconnect the drive or power when completing a data transfer or you may lose that data!

I wanted to try this version because I have another model already that is upright.  This one is horizontal in the way that it lays on it’s side, so I thought it would look nicer than a hard drive sticking straight up.  I can put this on top of my desktop tower, which is under the computer desk.  That is nice because it is out of the way and low-profile!  With the USB3.0 connection you can transfer data around 10 times faster than regular USB connections, so if you are transferring any large files or folders then you will be happy with the amount of time that you save!

I hope that this review helped you to decide that this is the right product for you!  I think that you will find this to be a useful device to have around whether you are just backing up photos or you need it for an emergency data extraction from a crashed computer, and it does not cost much.  And that always happens at the worse time when you have a work project due the next day or something!  If you would like a chance to win one for free, then please enter the giveaway through the link below!  Thank you for reading and good luck!

Orico USB3.0 Hub + Type-C Charging Port Review!

Hello everyone!  I wanted to share with you another great product that I just got in from Orico.  It is the USB3.0 3-Port Hub With Type-C Charging Port!  To be clear, it has 3 USB ports and a type-C port as well!  With the PD function it will be able to charge the newest notebooks and smart devices.  It does not require any configuration so it is very user-friendly and also compact and great for travel!  This can be purchased from Amazon or Newegg for under $30.  Today I am going to tell you a little bit about this product and my experience using it!  So let’s get started!

I really think this is a perfect little device that will increase in popularity as people upgrade their laptops and smart devices.  This unit is just so up to date!  With the USB3.0 ports you can transfer data and photos at a much faster speed than regular USB ports.  On average USB3.0 is about 10 times the speed of USB2.0, so that is a considerable difference!  Also, it includes the type-C charging port for the newer devices that charge with that type of port.  It is a possibility that all smart phones will use the type-C ports soon, and that the regular micro-USB ports will be a thing of the past.

I have declared this as my official travel port!  I already have another one from Orico that I really like to use at my computer area, and this is just so small and cute that I love to take it with me!  It is very lightweight but durable, and is about the size of my cellphone or maybe a little longer.  It is easy to throw in my purse if I am using a bigger purse, or I can just toss it in my laptop bag.  Then I can charge my phone and connect whatever external hardware I need to use at the time, how easy!

I hope that this review helped you to decide that this is the right product for you!  I think that this is a great hub to have if your smart phone uses type-C charging!  It gives you a nice combination of high-speed data transfer and fast charging power, and it is small and easy to connect on the go.  Thank you so much for reading and following!

Hamswan Aromatherapy Essential Oil Diffuser Review And Promo Code!

Hello everyone!  I wanted to share with you a great new product that I just got in from Hamswan.  It is the Aromatherapy Ultrasonic Essential Oil Diffuser!  It is very small, colorful, and makes any room smell great!  This can be purchased from Amazon for around $15.  Today I am going to tell you a little bit about this product, my experience using it, and share a special promo code with you so that you can save an additional 15% off on purchasing one!  So let’s get started!

I cannot believe that I have never tried an essential oils diffuser until now!  I have tried just about everything that exists to keep the house smelling fresh and clean, but it is tough with kids!  As soon as I get something cleaned up, it seems like they are sneaking around behind me waiting to create more havoc!  This is where this device comes in and really helps me out.  It is very inexpensive to run regularly, is healthier than alternatives, and easy to maintain.  All you have to do is add water and a few drops of essential oil!  If you are looking for an alternative to air fresheners or if you are just looking to relieve some stress, then you might consider investing in one of these!

So this device is used in combination with essential oils to create a light and calming scent.  Essential oils are much healthier to use than air freshener sprays that are loaded with chemicals.  And they are cheaper to use than candles, considering the longevity.  The device itself is small and is about as tall as a bottle of water, and twice as big around.  This makes it easy to display on any end table, night stand, office desk, or anywhere!  The colorful lighting is a super nice touch, and that takes it to a new level of functionality!  The light can be alternated between several colors, set to a particular color, dimmed down for using as a night light, or turned off completely.  It comes with an adapter to plug into the wall to supply power as well.

I enjoy using this device very much because I am tired of spraying air freshener and then choking afterwards!  This provides a very soothing and natural mist that smells very subtle and relaxing!  The colorful lights add to the ambience, and I use it as a nightlight.  It does not take up a lot of space, so it can go unnoticed during the day and then come alive at night!  This is a very inexpensive model that will save me a lot of money over time, and perform more efficiently at the same time.  It is safer than candles when I use it around the kids, and safer for animals and their breathing as well.  It will shut off automatically when your water runs dry, so it can be left on overnight while you sleep!  Next time I go on vacation, I would like to take this with me to make the hotel room smell better and help me fall asleep faster!

I hope that this review helped you to decide that this is the right product for you!  If you have never tried an essential oil diffuser, then this is the perfect time!  Hamswan is offering us a 15% off promo code for anyone who wants to try!  Just go to the Amazon listing here, and enter promo code: 120990OF !  Feel free to share this promo code with your friends too!  For under $15 you cannot go wrong considering it does so much, will save you money, and be better for your health!  Feel free to follow Hamswan on their Facebook Page and Twitter Account.  Thank you so much for reading, and feel free to comment below if you have any questions or feedback!
