Essential Oil Diffuser Review.

As a lover of essential oils and all things scent related I was very happy to review this product for Organic Aromas; you can find them here.

As soon as the product arrived I knew it was going to be something special.  Gone was the image I had created in my mind – think a ceramic vase shaped item with reeds with essential oils added, and you have conjured up the image I had.  Now replace with the image of a gorgeous, polished wooden base with a custom blown glass diffuser.  The contrasts are striking.  To help aid your visualisations you can view the diffusers here – Essential Oil Diffuser.

Included in the box was a bottle of their Signature essential oil blend.  After reading the instructions and carefully setting the diffuser up I was good to go.  Once I had plugged the diffuser in and turned the dial on I was blown away by the gorgeous array of colours that unfolded before my eyes.


This delightful diffuser is so easy to use, it really is as simple as adding the essential oil, plugging it in and allowing the gorgeous scents to permeate your home, or office, relaxing your mind and spirit.  A full explanation of how the diffusers work can be found here.

Essential oils have healing properties in them and can be beneficial to our health and wellbeing.  Using them in a diffuser is an excellent way of incorporating them into your life, especially if you are concerned about using them directly onto your skin.  There are so many oils you can choose from, but if you are not sure what to use in your very own diffuser then Organic Aromas have some suggestions – Essential Oils.

Some questions you may want answers to:

What is a nebulizing diffuser?

A nebulizing diffuser is a specific type of diffuser that uses the process of nebulization to achieve evaporation.  This means that the essential oil is broken down into tiny particles and then released into the air as a very fine mist.  So, the diffuser releases the essential oil into the air as a fine mist.


What are the benefits of using a nebulizing oil diffuser?

The benefits of using this type of oil diffuser are that the dispersal of the essential oil into the room, or office, with the scent and healing properties of whichever oil you have used in it.  Not only do you feel the positive effects that the essential oil has, but you can smell it too, and that, for me at least, is always a positive.  Whenever I feel low, stressed, ill, or even just tired the uplifting aromas of essential oils always have a positive effect on me.  For a long time now I have used an oil burner when I am working, not just to give my home a lovely smell, but also to help keep me in a positive frame of mind too.  The drawback to the oil burner is that you have to keep checking up on the level of oil and water and ensure your candle stays lit.  With this type of oil diffuser, you simply add your oil, plug it in and  can go about your day without the need to constantly check up on it.  Unlike other electric diffusers, these diffusers are quiet, there is absolutely no noise from them, so no distracting buzzing or humming in the background.  Included in the box that your nebulizing diffuser comes in are two pipettes for adding the essential oils to the glass bowl, ruling out fiddly and messy setting up.

I have used my diffuser every day since it arrived and it has become a firm favourite already.  I am still trying out different oils and blends, so have yet to decide on a favourite scent, but the possibilities are endless.  Overall this product is a fabulous addition to any home or office and is beneficial to the health and well-being of those who use it.  Pricewise it is a little higher than your average diffuser, but, when you consider the craftsmanship that has gone into producing such an excellent product you feel like the price fairly reflects the quality.  So far I am very satisfied with this product and would highly recommend it.

Overall Rating  5 stars. *****

Review of Keep Me Strong Cereal

I was asked to review this cereal a little while back.  Taste wise, I found it very similar to the other Keep Me cereal, not sure if that is supposed to be the case, that’s just maybe my taste buds, anyway, I find that it tastes quite pleasant (reminds me a little of Special K or similar).

As with the Keep Me Going cereal, I found that a normal sized bowl (25g – 30g) was sufficient to keep hunger at bay until lunchtime.  The product is made from whole grain brown rice so is easy to digest – info can be found here and here.

All in all, Keep Me Strong cereal is a fantastic alternative to the usual offerings on the market.  Both this cereal and the Keep Me Going cereal are low in sugar, low in salt and low in fat, making them both a healthy option for children and adults alike.  Both cereals can be purchased from Ocado.

Review of Domestos Bleach.


When I received the free product to try it had been some time since I had last used Domestos for cleaning around my home. Before trying this product out I had been using other cleaning products, like kitchen and bathroom cleaners, for cleaning those areas.

I had forgotten just how thick Domestos Bleach actually is and I feel that this makes it good value, you use less than you would a similar product that is thinner. I used it on my kitchen and bathroom surfaces – all the usual places in those areas, sinks, toilet, shower, bath and tiles, and was pleasantly surprised at how easily it cut through the filmy residue that builds up in the bath and sink.

I also had a surface that looked really grubby, no amount of cleaning products had been able to shift the marks, but this product cut through the marks and dirt and left it looking like new. Overall I am really happy with how well this product has made my bathroom and kitchen shiny and sparkling clean. I will definitely be using this product again.


Younique 3D+ Mascara.

The first thing I want to say about these products is that I have not tried any of them myself, but that said, I know quite a few people who have tried these products and have said that they are much better than their usual make up products.

Today I want to focus on the launch of the the Younique 3D+ mascara.  When we use mascara we are doing so to achieve long, sexy looking lashes.  As one of the most commonly used make up items mascara comes in many varieties, whether that be your normal run-of-the-mill dry mascara or one of the waterproof varieties.  Whatever variety you choose you are most likely aiming to have long, luscious lashes.  We wear mascara because we know that it will make our lashes darker, longer and thicker, drawing attention to our eyes and giving us the confidence to be who we want to be.

Younique’s new 3D+ mascara claims to plump your lashes up to 400% thicker, compared to bare lashes and after three applications they claim your lashes will look 2000% thicker.  As this a new product launching today I cannot personally vouch for any authenticity, but my friend Jody sells these products and I trust her judgement when it comes to such matters as beauty and make-up.

The products Younique offer are good for you too.  Paraben free, carcinogen free, chemical free, hypoallergenic, not tested on animals and even gluten free.  When it comes to buying make-up these things really make a difference to so many of us and it’s good to know that the products offered here are ticking all of the right boxes.

I hear many good things about Younique and I hear some bad things too.  The negative things tend to be about how you can buy similar products at your local beauty shop and I guess that will be true to a certain extent.  But what if you don’t get out much to go shop for beauty products?  What if you online shop?  A company like Younique would be perfect for all of your beauty needs and you know you are getting a reliable product that is free from all of the harmful chemicals some of the much cheaper products still contain.  Again, I have never used these products so I am not speaking from experience, which is a shame, but I do know people who have bought products from Younique and have never had any issues and have loved the products they sell.  I have to confess, I do not wear a lot of make-up and that is the main reason why I have yet to try this product range, but I am definitely going to be trying out some of these products in the near future.

For all things Younique, including the new mascara range, you can check out Jody’s online shop here.  You can also read about Jody’s Younique business here.  Jody also has a Facebook page where you can keep up to date with the latest product news and any events that are being held, follow this link to be redirected to her Facebook page.  Jody’s make-up range can also be found on Pinterest and G+.

E45 Review

This post first appeared on on April 16th 2013

I have a patch of dry skin that never seems to be hydrated enough, no matter what I use. A few years back I had tried the E45 range but was never really sold on it, it always seemed to leave my skin feeling greasy afterwards. That said, it did do the trick with the dry skin I had experienced back then, but I was always reluctant to buy any more of it as the after effects it had put me off.

When I was accepted for this trial I did wonder what I was going to do with the big bottles of lotion I was sent. I envisaged using the product once and discarding it, due to the greasy residue it had previously left on my skin.
I couldn’t have been more surprised. The lotion is light and leaves my skin feeling so soft – and it has cleared my problem areas up too – a win/win situation.

This is definitely a product I would recommend to all of my family and friends. It is a product I will be only too happy to purchase after this trial is over.

Wonderful product that leaves your skin soft and hydrated.

Review of Easy Veet Wax.

This post first appeared on on July 2nd 2013

Not being a huge fan of at home waxing products I was keen to see if this new system had indeed made this process any easier. I had high hopes about the product, after reading the blurb that came with it and reading some bits and pieces online I thought that this was going to be the product that actually sold me on at home waxing.

How wrong I was !!!

I found the product very difficult to use and it certainly did not remove ANY of my leg hair. I cannot tell you how disappointed I am, but I guess that’s just how it is.

There is no way I will be buying this product in the future and I am still not a convert to at home waxing.


Vanish Oxi action stain remover.

Vanish Oxi action stain remover.
I have been trying out Vanish Oxi action stain remover as a Bzz Agent. I have tried stain removers before and thought they were ok, but I’ve never tried this product before.

I had a tomato based stain on a black t.shirt sleeve. I haven’t had that much luck getting it out, so haven’t worn the item for a couple of months. When I received the Vanish product to try I thought I would see if it could tackle my long standing stain.
I have to be honest here, I didn’t really think that much would change, after all, I had tried a few times to get rid of the stain.

But the stain vanished. I was quite amazed when I discovered that Vanish Oxi stain remover actually worked.


Sure Review

This post first appeared on on February 16th 2013. 

As a member of the Bzz campaign I am asked to take part in trials and surveys, testing out goods and so on. My first trial was the new sure compressed deodorants. I understood what they were trying to sell and I looked forward to my parcel arriving.
When it arrived I wasn’t certain that the product would live up to the claims the company were making. Those claims were that the smaller, compressed tin of deodorant would last just as long as the 150ml size tins. I read all of the literature that came with the package and understood that the nozzle has been changed so that less gas sprays out, but more antiperspirant ingredient is delivered. This technology allows for a smaller sized tin, less packaging, more environmentally friendly.

I haven’t actually bought a 150ml size tin for a while now so I am unable to show the difference directly, however, I can say this; I buy the 250ml size tins of sure deodorant as I always find the smaller tins don’t last as long as I want them to. The trial was always going to be interesting for me, I wanted to see how much use I was going to get out of this new size, how long it was going to last for and if it lives up to the hype that is surrounding it.

So far, I have been using it for 11 days and I still have what feels like at least 3/4 of a tin. I use the product twice a day – same great smell, same great freshness and the product lasts just as long as the usual size tins do. In the past when I have used smaller tins I would probably be over half empty by this stage – 11 days. At this point in the trial I can safely say that the product is living up to its hype and lasting longer than a regular size tin of sure.

It is understandable for any person to be a little dubious about the claims sure are making with regards to this product. But I can say without a shadow of a doubt that this product does exactly what it is supposed to and lives up to the claims sure are making about it.

Give it a go, you won’t be disappointed. The price is just the same too, so you really have nothing to lose.
