Pure Shea Butter, for softer skin!

Hi,hi!

Ahh, what a lovely day it has been.  I took a "lazy" day today!  Sometimes, it is OK to just not do anything but hang out in PJ's all day.  

What the heck is "shea" butter, anyways??  Well, it is made from the fat of the nut from the ... you guessed it... African Shea Tree!  :)

This shea butter by /Cleopatra's Choice/Adovia is luxury in a tub!  The United States Agency for International Development, Gassel Consulting, and many other companies suggested a grading system for shea butter.  With Grade A being the very best.  To be rated A it has to be raw, unrefined and extracted using only water.  Well, here ya go.. Cleopatra's Choice Pure Shea Butter is Grade A!  

There are numerous uses for shea butter, other than just dry skin and hair.  But, even if that was all it could be used for, it is worth every penny.  An internet search will give several ways one can use shea butter.

As always, I feel this is another great Adovia product.  And, I recommend it to family and friends.

One may purchase Raw Shea Butter at Amazon.  This comes with a 100% money back guarantee.  "Ya can't beat that with a stick"!  Sorry, I think I just channeled my granny with that last statement.  Blahaha!

I love Adovia's Facial Moisturizer!

Hi,hi!

If you are a regular reader of my blog, you know that I have reviewed several Adovia skin care products.  I have been pleased with them all, and they are my daily skin care routine products.

Today I am reviewing their Facial Moisturizer.  I really like the consistency of this moisturizer.  It is a little thick, but it is kinda like whipped, so it does not feel heavy on ones face.

I use it under my make up, and at night.  I find I am using less foundation because it glides on easy over this moisturizer.

I haven't met an Adovia product I didn't like  :).

Adovia Facial Moisturizer is hypoallergenic and contains an active complex of Dead Sea Minerals for natural moisture balance.

One may purchase Adovia Facial Moisturizer on Amazon.

5KTape Review

Hi,hi!!!!!

How are you?  So kind of you to drop by!

Things have settled down a bit in my world.  My granddaughter's MRI came back normal (big YEAH!)  and my Mom is improving daily!  What a blessing!  

Having a critically ill family member can be VERY stressful, as I am sure many of you can attest too.  

My sister, Kim, was experiencing a lot of stress related pain in her neck and shoulders.  Ahha! the perfect guinea pig ..err.. test subject.  I would never use my sister for a guinea pig...well...at least not for anything harmful!  Blahaha!!!  I love you Kim!!!!!!

Now, what is 5K tape;  it is a premium kinesiology tape.  There are many You Tube videos showing how one uses kineiology tape for different parts of the body.





Kim, had been experiencing pain for 2 days with it getting worse every day.  I placed 2 strips of tape across Kim's shoulders.  One vertical, one horizontal.  She felt the tape did help ease the pain, and stated, "the pain had not continued to worsen".  The tape remained in place even after two showers.  Now, that's some sticky tape right there!

There are mixed reviews as to whether or not kinesiology tape really works. Kim felt it did help her pain.  Athletes use it to stabilize muscles and promote circulation.  You may have seen brightly colored tape on some athletes, chances are good that it is kinesiology tape.

One may order 5K Tape on Amazon.
As of right now, they are offering two rolls for the price of one!

A New way to Exfoliate your skin! #exfolimate

Hi,hi!

I am happy to be introducing you to a whole new way to exfoliate your face and body.  It is like nothing I have used before, and I really like it!  

It is the Exfolimate.
Now, this looks like it could be a lil dangerous, but the edges are not sharp, so no worries there!  This can be used by just wetting ones face, or with a cleanser.

The most difficult thing for me to do was to hold it at the correct angle.  To work properly, it should be held at a 90 degree angle, I tended to do about 45 degrees, until I got the hang of it.  Use a small amount of pressure and sweep it in an upward motion over your face/body.  One may notice dead skin cells on the edge, so be sure and rinse after every swipe!  :)

These come with rubber strings that is threaded through the little hole at the top, they can then be hung on a hook in the shower.  Very handy!

I use mine twice a week.  I like not having the mess some exfoliates can cause.

One may learn more about this produce on their WEBSITE 

Exfolimate  may be purchased at Amazon. 
or at Walgreens

Baking Mat Review by Bake it Fun



Hi, hi!


Today's review was done by my daughter, Brandi, of BMooreCelebrations

She did an awesome video showing how this baking mat works.
She was quite pleased with it.  She usually uses parchment paper, but after using the Bake it Fun baking mat, she prefers it.

She used the refrigerated store bought cookie dough.

Wow, I'm impressed!  

One may order Bake it Fun Baking Mat on Amazon.

Learn the language of love using PIMSLEUR FRENCH

Hi, hi!  Bonjour, Bonjour!

I know I'm tellin' my age here but...my first memories of hearing French was from the cartoon character "pepe le pew".   

Do ya'll remember that little skunk that chased a poor cat around because it looked like a skunk with the white stripe down it's back? 
Oh, how Pepe loved that little cat.  He chased her all over speaking french love words to her.  Even though I didn't understand the words, the language just sounded so tender and sweet!

                                            "Ahh... Love"

I feel the Pimsleur learning courses are the best way to learn a new language.  The lessons come on CD's, this makes them very versatile, as one can listen to them in the car, on the plane, or just play them on your computer at home.

I think like me, you will surprise yourself by how much you retain from listening to a CD just a couple of times.  It is designed that way!

If you only speak English, and have never been to another country, trust me when I say there are just some words you'll want to know!
Like... which is the men's restroom and which is the ladies!  Ha!

If you or a child is taking french in school, this program would be an added bonus for them.




 One may purchase Pimsleur French on Amazon.

Hot Yoga Towel for the Ultimate Yoga Experience Review

Hi, hi!

I sure hope you are having a lovely day.  "Sometimes you're the bug and sometimes you're the windshield"!   Ha!  It's kinda gross to think about, but accurate!  

It seems like so many people suffer from stress related illnesses.  Oh, sure they make a pill for that, but there are also things one can do to help minimize the feelings of stress.  Yoga is one of those things.  This is where today's review comes in handy.
This yoga towel lays atop your yoga mat.  It helps to prevent slipping as it is very absorbent.  It is amazing how much one can sweat when doing yoga!  It also prolongs the life of ones yoga mat.

I even took mine to the beach because it is microfiber and dries quickly.  

It is made by Shandali, the same company that makes the travel towel, I blogged about earlier.

This Yoga towel has a lifetime guarantee.  How much better can one get than that?

It washed up nicely, but unlike the travel towel, I didn't like using it to dry off with when I got out of the shower.  But, then again, that is not what it is made for.  I just wanted to give it a go and see how it did.

One may purchase Hot Yoga Towel on Amazon.

Some "fairy" cute string of lights! #rtgsproducts

Hi,hi!

How are you?  My mom is making great strides in recovering and that has really helped my stress level.  So, today felt like the right day to review something whimsical with you!

This lil string of lights is just "cute as Christmas".  There is 20 Micro LEDs on the string and the lights are about the size of a grain of rice, but WOW are they bright!  I'll admit, my sister and I both "awww'ed" over them when I turned them on for the first time.





I put them in a little fairy house I had that was meant for a tea light.  Aww, so stinkin' cute!  

They have a clear battery pack, which requires 3 AA batteries.  The top of the pack slides open.  Don't be like me and spend precious time trying to pull it up  :)  Sliddddeeee it back  :)

I think these would be really cute to use in a bridal bouquet.  One could hide the battery pack in amongst the flowers.  Or even depending on ones hair style it could be used in ones hair or woven into a head garland.  Should one decide to use these in their bridal flowers, I suggest taking them to the florist; as they can work them in while making the bouquet.

Find out more about these micro LED lights on their WEBSITE

PhantomFit Resistance Loop Bands Review #phantomfit


 Hi,hi!
Whew, my family has had a rough week and a half.  My Mom has been very ill.  It really drains ones mind and body with worrying and running back and forth to the hospital for the limited visiting hours one is allowed in ICU. We did receive positive news yesterday and believe that she may be released from the hospital in a couple of days.  Many, many prayers have been offered up for her, and I know in my heart that is why we still have her with us today.  

It is hard to maintain a normal routine at times like these.  One simply cannot squeeze in enough time to do things like go to the gym.  That is why I find PhantomFit Resistance Loop Bands so handy.


 Also, I have limited space for exercise equipment. I love how convenient these are, and being able to take them even when one travels is awesome! 
I was given some bands from my physical therapist, but they are so flimsy compared to these Resistance Loop Bands. I like the 4 different levels of training in one small portable pouch! 
 One may purchase PhantomFit Resistance Loop Bands on Amazon.
Learn more about them on their website.
Please take a minute to follow my blog any way you can, so that I can continue to provide you with awesome product reviews.  Thanks bunches!

Paradise Coconut Oil Review

Hi,hi!

Welcome to another edition of Dragonfly Tales.  If you are not a follower of my blog, please follow me by google +, instagram or any other way your lil ole heart desires!   (All listed on the right sidebar.)  By doing so, you help me continue to bring you great products to review.  Thank you ever so much!  xoxo

Today I am reviewing an all around useful product.  Unless one has an allergy to coconuts, I don't think there is anyone that cannot benefit from "Paradise Coconut Oil ".
I like the smell of this oil and the consistency.  I have not used it in cooking, so I cannot attest to the taste of it.  If ya'll recall I'm not big into cooking.  Ha!

This oil is USDA certified organic.  100% coconut oil!  It is gluten free, and vegan.  No animals were harmed in the making of this coconut oil.  :)

There are sooo many uses for coconut oil, so why not use top notch quality?

The older I get, the blonder my hair gets!  I don't even color treat it!
It is a little on the dry side.  I slather Paradise Coconut oil on it and leave it on for several hours (just cuz I can).  My hair is softer and less frizzy.

It is also great for dry skin.  Sometimes I will mix a drop of essential oil into it.  I really like it for dry skin.

If one googles "coconut oil uses" there is just loads of info.

It is even a healthy alternative for cooking oil.

One may purchase Paradise Coconut Oil on Amazon.

WISHING MUCH LOVE AND HAPPINESS TO YOU ALL!!

Magnetic Screen Door - iGotTech

Hi, hi

I hope today finds you well.  

Today's great product was reviewed by my daughter.  After I had been approved for the review, I found out she had it on her Amazon wish list!  So...I felt she would be great for the review.  She is very particular about the products she uses.
It was very easy to install.  We..errrr... Matt,  did not have to do any cutting, just attach the velcro magnetic strips to the door frame, attach the screen door to the velcro strips and Babooom.  You got yourself an awesome screen door!

The dog took to it right away.   My daughter loves being able to leave the main door open to give Duke the opportunity to go in and outside as he pleases.

Her exact words to me, after using it for just two weeks, was "We Love it"!  That is high praise indeed!  

One may purchase this Magnet Screen Door at Amazon.

#1 Rated Lavender Essential Oil #bestlavender

Hi,hi!

Stressed much?  Need help relaxing?  Want a natural sleep aid?  How about having your laundry smell good without the use of artificial chemicals?  Well, you are in luck!  Lavender Essential Oil by Elite Gold Solutions will help you with these things and many, many more!
The word lavender stems from the Latin word lavare, which means "to wash".  It has been shown to have antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties.  

I have used it this past month to help relieve stress induced headaches and as a sleep aid.

Some nights my mind just doesn't wanna shut down.  And, some days it doesn't start up at all!   Haa!  Anyway... I put a few drops of Lavender Oil on a cloth and laid it in front of my fan so that the beautiful smell was blowing towards me.  I found it relaxing.

Lavender essential oil is great when combined with a carrier oil and used as a massage.  Some research even showed it to be beneficial to those with hair loss.  

If I was going to have only one essential oil, it would be lavender.  So, why not use the best?  Gold Elite Solutions essential lavender oil is rated as #1 best seller on Amazon.  A google search will provide oodles of ways to use this awesome essential oil.

Elite Gold Solutions Lavender Oil is the ONLY one made with
gentle super-critical steam distilled extraction from fresh lavender flower tops.  It is 100 % pure with no fillers.

Read more about how it is made and order #1 Lavender Essential Oil at Amazon.

LIMITED EDITION "ONE DIRECTION" MAKE UP!

Hi, hi!

I have some exciting news for all "One Direction" fans!  

They are launching a limited edition make up collection which comes in a really cool tin!  There are three editions to choose from:  "TAKE ME HOME, MIDNIGHT MEMORIES and UP ALL NIGHT.

I received samples from the "UP ALL NIGHT" collection.


All the collections come with lipstick, really sparkly lip gloss, mascara, chubby eye/body crayon, nail varnish, a compact of 4 eye shadows plus one glitter creme shadow and an added bonus of really cute "doodle stencils".

With Christmas just around the corner (I know, it's hard to believe) this would make a great gift for any "ONE DIRECTION" band fan.
The tin would make a great place for one to store their "ONE DIRECTION" memorabilia.  

Because this is a limited edition item one may want to get on the "band wagon" soon.  :)

Find out more about this collection on their Facebook page

Let Me Tell Ya About SOAP NUTS! #GVP

Hi, hi!

Today's review is something I had never heard of before, perhaps you haven't either. But I'm bettin' you'll be glad to find out what I have found out!  :)

The product I have reviewed this month is Soap Nuts Liquid Laundry Detergent.  I know my laundry drives me nuts, I just didn't know there is a detergent made from nuts.  The Chinese Soap Berry Tree produces a berry that once dried contains a natural soap called saponin.  I sure would like to have one of those trees!  
One no longer has to have a separate detergent for those family members with allergies, as this product is "extremely hypoallergenic".

And... imagine this... an 8 oz bottle does 120 loads of laundry!  I have limited space in my laundry "closet", so this small bottle is great for me.  It is so much easier to handle too, just pick up that little bottle, pump 3-4 squirts of detergent in the washer and ta-da you are ready to get that laundry started.

I put this to the test when I used it on some laundry that was still slightly damp when I packed it up in my suitcase, when returning home from vacation.  Of course, I did not feel like doing laundry immediately upon arriving home, so the clothes had a slight musty smell.  I was very happy when the laundry came out with no lingering odor.  One does not even have to use fabric softener!  Yet, another space and money saver!  

I can't really describe a smell to you, because... well there is no smell.  One's laundry detergent no longer has to clash with their 
perfume/cologne.  

Not only is this detergent advantageous to use at home, but it would be great for those traveling as the small 8 oz bottle takes up hardly any space.

I am  very satisfied with this product.  

One may learn more about this product and purchase it on the Green Virgin Products Website

Adovia Eye Cream #adovia

Hi,hi!

How are ya'll doin' this fine day?  Things have been a tiny bit rocky for me with two family members having health scares.  They both are doing better, and are scheduled for more testing.  I pray for God's continued Grace and Mercy in our lives, and that they both will return to good health.

Even though worrying does not one bit of good, it is hard not too, huh.
And, you know where the effects of worry shows the fastest... our face.  One does not even need to know the person to be able to see the signs of worry and grief in their eyes.  Whether it be from sleepless nights or hours spent crying the effects are noticeable.  Most of the time we don't want to show the world our pain, time marches on, so we put on our happy face and get on with it.  

A good skin good routine is always important, but it becomes even more important as one tries to guard themselves against the signs of aging that worry and grief can bring on.  Now, don't get me wrong, I understand that thinking of one's skin care isn't a top priority when facing troubling times.  I'm saying that if one has developed the habit of a good skin routine it becomes something we do to maintain some normalcy in our lives.

Lately, I have been using several Adovia products.  I have been happy with all of them.  The last month, I have been reviewing their eye cream.
The consistency of this is not what I would consider a "cream".  It is more gel like.  It is labeled as both, eye cream and eye gel.  I feel eye gel is the more adequate description.  A little bit of it goes a long way, so it will last one a good long time.

As with all Adovia products, it contains Dead Sea salts and minerals along with Vitamin C and Vitamin A Retinol.

The skin around our eyes is very thin, so an eye cream is vital in keeping the skin hydrated and helping to reduce swelling and dark circles.

It comes with a money back guarantee, so one has nothing to lose by trying it.  To get the full advantage of the eye cream/gel use it twice a day.  Heck, if I'm having a rough day I use it more often, because it feels cooling and refreshing.

When applying any creams around ones eyes, one should gently pat the product on, do not pull or tug at the skin, as it stretches easily, especially as we age...... Not that I would know anything about that..... Haaa!

One may order Adovia eye cream/gel on Amazon.
