Review:  I was so excited to try this product.  Saw it advertised on TV, and knew this was going to be fun.  I had visions of fun food for not only my hubby and myself, but for my kids and grandkids.  And not only fun foods, but healthy too!

Set up was a snap.  Now to try it out.  I first tried fresh ginger root.  Yep.  It's a solid, and had two flat edges.  My husband likes eating it, but it is difficult to slice thinly.  Well, I must admit, that didn't work that great, but not going to discount it just because of the nature of fresh ginger root.  I would do that one again.

Next I tried egg plant.  That didn't do anything but jam up.  I cut it down to size, and tried every setting (there are 4).  It just didn't do anything.  I might try it again, but was too frustrated with it to keep trying that today.

The next item was a potato.  Waaahoo!  That worked! Just like it said.  I put my curly little potatoes on my microwave bacon cooker and had healthy potato chips 7 minutes later.  My hubby was impressed.  He LOVES potato chips.  Now he can have a healthy version.  It's so easy he can now make his own.

What didn't spiral through InstantVeg Spiral Slicer
 Now that I had success, I tried a carrot using the other settings to see how they turned out.  They didn't turn out quite like I expected, but I like the octopus looking style.  I think my grandkids would like those.

 Granted, I'm not a pro at this yet, but I'm willing to try these items again, along with the other foods they say work well: zucchini, turnips, beets, turnips, English cucumbers, onions, apples.  Shoot, I'm going to try others too, just to see.

After receiving this product and in the midst of trying it out, Brieftons sent out an email stating that they now believe in this so much that they now offer a 100% guarantee.  You can't beat that. This comes with a  cookbook of  20 mouthwatering healthy recipes.

Pros: Fun kitchen tool.  It was so easy with a potato.  It actually worked like it said.

Cons:  Had a harder time with egg plant, and carrots. I'm thinking it was user error, not specifically product error.

Magnetic Screen Door

Details: Megamesh Screen Doors are an innovative way to allow the cool breezes to come into your house and keep the bugs out.  OR, to allow an easy access doorway to your party deck.  This is a magnetic hands-free entry doorway.  It is pet friendly, and allows them easy access in and out of your home too.  Designed to withstand heavy traffic. Easy to install.  Optional push-pin attachments if live in high humidity climates. It only comes in one size, 36" x 83".

Review:  Megamesh responds extremely fast in getting your product to you.  We ran into some issues with their product, but first I want to point out the positive benefits.  The black screen helped cool the room we tried the Megamesh in.  It kept the suns rays out, and even though it wasn't a major drop in temperature, it was a significant noticeable difference.
#magneticscreendoor
Next, the magnets that allow the screen door to open and close as you go in and out, work just like they show on TV.  It is real slick that way.  You do not need hands to push open the screen, just walk through it and it snaps back into place very tightly.

The magnets are nicely concealed and sewn in.  This allows for a seamless automatic closure.  The Velcro is also sewn into the seams to make it less visible.  The Velcro is used to attach the Megamesh Screen Door to your existing door frame.  If you live in high humidity areas like I do, they provide push pins for attachment.

Unfortunately for me, we've had so much rain and high humidity, it took a long time before we could install. We also ran into another major problem. This did not fit any of our doors.  It was too tall, and too narrow.  I've contacted the company about this issue, but still no response.

Despite that, we still put the Megamesh Screen Door up.  You will notice in the pictures below, that the screen door doesn't fit as snug as it should.  That is because it is too narrow for our door frames.  We raised the screen door as high as we could for installation, yet it is still too long for our door frame.  Because it does not fit snug, the little bugs that hang around this particular door still got inside our home.  If it had been just 1 inch wider, we would not have had this issue.

Too long.  It should fit snug at the bottom of door frame.

Wrinkled at top. Too long, and too narrow.

Megamesh Screen too narrow for door frame.
Doesn't fit snug, which allows bugs to come in.

Notice gap on side.  Shouldn't be there.
Little bugs still came through. 


If you find that the 36" x 83" size will fit your door frames, I believe you will be happy with the Megamesh Screen Door.

Pros: Cooled our room down after installing on our door.  The way the screen door opens hands free, and snaps back to close tightly was great.  Thought the black screen design was attractive.

Cons: Did not fit our door frames, and we tried everyone just to make sure.

My Rating:  Thumbs Up for working like it should.  Thumbs Down for not fitting our door frames.

Niacinamide B3 Facial Cream

Details:  Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) Serum by InstaNatural is a great skin product. Not only that but is helps fight against acne, has skin lightening benefits, helps with hyperpigmentation, and firms and plumps the skin.  If you are looking for a more youthful appearance, clearer, smoother and brighter skin, you will want to be sure to order your Niacinamide Serum from Amazon today.
#InstaNatural


This products works.  If you don't feel it does you will get your money back.  They back their products with a Lifetime hassle-free money back guarantee, no matter where you buy their product.  There is absolutely no risk.  If you are not completely satisfied, simply contact the company, and they will give you a full refund no questions asked.  Their number 1 priority is to make sure you are completely happy.

Review:  In using this serum, you would first wash and tone your face.  You may apply Vitamin C serum, then apply the Niacinamide Serum.  Apply using upward and circular motions.  This is a great anti-wrinkle exercise.  Follow up with a moisturizing oil such as argon oil, or your favorite moisturizing cream.  You only need a pea size drop of serum (it's more like a lotion rather than a liquid serum).

I couldn't believe how fast I saw results with this product.  I feel like I can honestly say I noticed a difference the first day.  It was wonderful.  My skin didn't appear as blotchy and red like it normally does.  I must admit, I do forget to add the moisturizing cream after application.  My base makeup does help with that, however.

After a week, I noticed my skin was more plump and firm (hint~less wrinkle lines on face).  I love this stuff.  Now, I'm not saying I'm wrinkle free, but hey, my husband says I look like my daughter now, which is a great compliment. Please note: our daughter doesn't have any wrinkles, but my face did appear more youthful than it has done.

This product can be tolerated by all skin types, and it gets absorbed quickly.  If you want to speed up your anti-aging routine to diminish wrinkles, or if you are looking for a wonderful skin care product, be sure to order your Niacinamide Serum by InstaNatural today.

Pros: Noticed a difference the first day I used this product.  Less redness and blotchiness that first day.  Less wrinkles due to plumping and firming of skin the longer I use it.  Nice and creamy.  Doesn't take much.

Cons:  None.

Mineral Skin Care is hypoallergenic, dermatologist tested and approved.  Order your Mineral Skin Care by Adovia from Amazon.

#moisturizer
Review:  I love lotions and moisturizing creams of all kinds.  This product was superb.  It is nice and creamy. I have expected it to leave my face with a trace of dried salt, having been made with water from the Dead Sea.  I, in fact, have had softer more supple skin since using Adovia's Mineral Skin Care.  I started by using it every morning and night.  I decided that I just want to use their cream at night.  It isn't greasy at all, but lately, our weather has been full of rain and high humidity, and I'm constantly washing my face.  Therefore, I've decided to just use this at night until our weather changes.

I also slather some of the cream on my hands before going to bed as well.  I'm finding I need less lotion during the day after using this mineral moisturizing cream.  It is white, soft and fluffy, but not so fluffy you think you're only getting air. The moisturizing cream is quickly absorbed.  When I was using this during the day, my skin seemed to have a natural glow or shine, without it looking greasy.


My skin has not broken out by using it, it actually looks better.  I really like like using this.

Pros:  Really does what it says, allows my skin to retain it's natural moisture and makes my skin glow.  Not greasy.  Very moisturizing.

Cons:  None.
