Strawberry Farms Go Go Garlic Review

I received Go Go Garlic, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson. I love Garlic. Garlic and onions go into almost everything, I cook. Go Go Garlic is crushed, dried garlic cloves in a jar. I have used it in bread, gravies, rice, pasta, potatoes, and sauces. I don't have to add fresh garlic cloves (unless I want to) into foods, when I use Go Go Garlic.

My first recipe was a spread for bread. I mixed the go go garlic with butter and spread on some french bread. I also tried it on biscuits (seen in the collage. top left pic).

I also have made gravies and sauces with the go go garlic. I have added go go garlic to potatoes, rices, pastas, and veggies. The go go garlic tasted great with green beans, a dash of salt, butter, garlic pepper, onions, and go go garlic (bottom right pic in the collage). The other pics include a mushroom gravy (bottom left) and a garlic butter sauce for pasta (top left).

Go Go Garlic is very versatile for cooking.

I also received their Louisiana market chowder. I will review the chowder within a few days. The chowder is a base for soup. I never made chowder before and can't wait to follow the recipe on the bag. I am just missing half and half.

You can purchase Go Go Garlic and other seasonings, using Strawberry Tree Farm's Website. The site sells both a small and large bottle of go go garlic.

Tori Kelly Hiding Place Review (Fly By Blog Promotions)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.

I received Tori Kelly's Hiding Place CD, in exchange for honest review from Fly By Blog Promotions. Tori Kelly is a Christian artist. I never heard of her before, but I had seen her on Google Play in the playlists.

The album, started out with Masterpiece, featuring Lecrae (big fan of his music). The song started out slow at first, but picked up the pace during the first verse. Lecrae showed out in his verse.

The cd is a mix of different musical styles. I heard pop in Masterpiece and a jazz beat in Sunday.

You can purchase her CD on Amazon, using the link above. The album is also available on Music Unlimited. It is also on Google Play (not sure, if it is free or with just all-access. I have all-access).

Claudia Elaine Bubble Masks Review (Tomoson)

I received Claudia Elaine Bubble Masks, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson. I have heard about bubble masks before online, but never tried one. The masks definitely was weird and fun to try.

The masks contained rose water and lotus flower extract. The masks also uses carbonated water.

To activate the masks, you rub the mask, while still in the package. I think I rubbed too hard because bubbles started coming quickly. I had to align the mask quickly. The mask has eye holes, nose, and mouth holes. There is also a slit at the bottom for the chin.

You can see the different stages of bubbles in the pics above in the collage and below, individually.  I am working on a video with the 2nd mask, I received. The bubbles help clean, exfoliates, purify, and tighten your skin. I did have issues with the bubbles trying to go into eyes, nose, and mouth. I would recommend any ideas, which will help cover eyes, nose, and mouth, while the bubbles are working.

I wore the mask for the recommended 15 minutes. It was neat and weird seeing the bubbles appear and tingle. The masks are great for sensitive skin.

You can purchase the masks, using the link above. The masks come in a set of 5.

Lekeye Hair Catcher Review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.

I received the Lekeye Hair Catcher, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson. I wanted to review this to help keep hairs and other debris from my bathtub drains. The drain catcher is made from stainless steel. It comes with two silicone end pcs.

The catcher did not fit completely in my old apts bathtub or my new apts bathtub, but it did work. I keep it in when showering and for regular use. I only remove it when bathing so I can swap it out for a bathtub plug.

The first time, I removed it from the drain, the catcher had lavender stems in it. I had made some bath bombs, candles, and scrubs, with my niece, using lavender stems. The stems was caught in the catcher and I was able to rinse it off.

The catcher also caught diaper strings, poop, and other debris.

I wish I had a drain catcher at my old apartment, years ago. I had a clogged toilet and tub. The apt maintenance found all sorts of interesting finds down the toilet and tub. Not sure how long most of it had been stuck though (either from us and former residents).

You can purchase the catcher, using the link above, from Amazon. The catcher is prime-eligible. It is also available for prime one day The catcher comes in multiple colors.

Pravette Mini Projector Review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.

I recieved the Pravette Mini Projector, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson. The projector came with the manual, cap, remote, aux cords, power supply, and tripod screw. The projector has an infared sensor, hdmi, vga, usb, and  an sd card slot. You will need an adapter for micro sd and nano sd cards. It also has a built in focus dial.

I wanted one to connect to the pc, camcorder, and use with my sd cards. I also wanted to be able to edit and view videos (when I get a faster pc) on a bigger screen I was able to test the projector, with a makeshift screen, to view camcorder photos. I was not able to view the videos because of the file format. The manual came in handy with adjusting the shape of the projection (from trapezoid to square) plus focus.

The projector also worked well with my mini tripods and my monopod. I had to use a shoe/adapter to work with my tripods. The projector can get hot though after extended use. I cant wait to see how the projector works on a projection screen and with videos.

You can purchase the mini projector, using the link above. The projector is prime-eligible.

Evol Concepts Mica Powder Review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: This page contains Amazon Affiliate Links.

I received Evol Concepts Mica Powder, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson.The set comes with 20 colors, ranging from blues, greys, purples, yellows, greens, golds, and greys. I also loved the black.

The powders can be used in many applications such as candles, nail art, slime, make-up, scrubs, butters, whatever you can think of. The powders are non-toxic and safe for every day use.

I wanted to try the powders because I had used liquid candle colors before but the liquid dried out quick. The liquid, I had, was also super thick and slow to come out of the bottle. I liked the easy application and use of the mica powders. The powders came in a small, white, box with each color in a baggie.

My niece and I used the colors in body butters, candles, and scrubs. It was fun mixing the different colors to see what new colors, we could create. The powders can get messy if you pour out too much at a time. I use a spoon to scoop out a little at a time. The colors did not stain the counters, stove, or my (or niece's) skin.

I can't wait to see what other applications, I can use the mica powders in. I have a small collection of glass jars for candles. I wonder if the mica powders can be used as a paint or tint to help decorate the jars.

Candle Wax

Black Candle Wax with Lavender 

Rose Violet Gold Tea Scrub

Candles, Scrub, and Body Butter

Bluish Body Butter

Sphynx Portable Razor Review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate links

I received the Sphnyx Disposable Razor, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson. The Sphnyx is the coolest razor, I have seen in a long time. You don't have to carry around razors and shaving cream separately anymore. The razor comes in Teal, Black, Purple, and Pink.

The razor contains a mini water bottle, two razor blades, and a shaving bar. You simply rotate the dial in the middle to move to each section. You can also take the top off to replace the blades and shaving bar.

I wanted to try it because I like the size of the disc. It was easy to drop into my bag, and use on the go. I also liked how you can replace the blades and shave bar. You don't have to buy more than one starter kit to get refills.

I used the Sphnyx to shave my pits, arms, and bikini area. The razor was easy to use and easy to clean.

You can purchase the Sphnyx using the link above or on Amazon. The Sphnyx is prime-eligible. The refill pack is also sold on Ulta. The pack comes with four blades and a preshave bar.

Dr Q Portable DVD Player Review

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.

I received Dr. Q's Portable DVD Player, in exchange for review. I thought the player would be good for family trips. What I did not realize when I ordered it was A) The screen is 14.1inches (love it) and you can use it with and without battery power. The player has a 6 hour playing time once fully charged. The player light turns green once fully charged.

The DVD Player comes with 2 sets of headphones, remote, wall, charger, car charger, AV cable, and AV adapter. You also can connect the player to your televison, another dvd player, or other devices. 

The screen is clear and crisp. The screen also swivels. The DVD player came in handy when the lights went out this month, during a thunder storm. 

The player also plays CDs, SD cards, and multiple file formats. I was able to play music and watch movies with no issues. 

The thing, I struggled with the most, was the controls. I haven't used a DVD player in a while. You have to use buttons on both sides of the disc holder when playing music or a movie. I didn't use the remote right away because I didn't have batteries, but it was easier to use.

Finally,  you can copy CDs/DVDs to a usb drive. I have not used this feature yet but can't wait to try it.

I received the Asobu Portable Coldbrew Coffee Maker, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson.

The coffee maker comes with a built-in, 40oz., vacuum insulated,  carafe for portability and easy storage. The carafe can be removed from the maker.  The coffee can be brewed from 12 (for hot coffee) to 24 for cold coffee. It also has an air valve on top. The air valve needs to be closed when brewing and open, when you are ready to empty the coffee into the carafe. There is also a button on the side, which empties the coffee into the carafe.

I wanted the coffee maker so I can make coffee, without my kids knowing. I made this batch with break the cup coffee. I do not have an electric, coffee maker, but do have a french press. To use, you add the grounds into the metal filter. You soak the grounds and then add water to the glass part, to start infusing the coffee.

The coffee was strong after 24 hours. Great way to get a quick, pick me up. You can then add creamer, sugar, or just drink it black. I made ice coffee, the first time, I used the brewer.

You can purchase the coffee maker on Amazon, using the link above. The carafe comes in 4 colors: black, white, silver, and copper. The coffee maker is prime-eligible.
