Exfolimate Exfoliating Cloth Review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.

I received Exfolimate, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson. Exfolimate is a exfoliating cloth. The cloth is made for the entire body. The mate helps with dry skin, aging skin, and acne issues. Since the cloth has some length to it,  you can use it to exfoliate any part of the body, such as your back.

I have used soap on the mate and also used a scrub to get double exfoliation. I used it mostly to remove dead skin on the body. It does feel a little weird at first to use it because the Exfolimate is a cloth with texture to help your body.

You can purchase the Exfolimate, using the link above. You also can purchase Exfolimate on Amazon. The cloth comes in three colors; green; exotic animal, and purple.

Spicy World Madagascar Vanilla Paste Review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.

I received Spicy World Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla PASTE in exchange for honest review from Tomoson. The vanilla tastes amazing. I have used it in a cake and homemade frosting. The frosting had strawberries, ganache, vanilla, and heavy cream.

I also mixed the vanilla with a little bit of peanut butter and ganache for a snack.

I had no issues with the vanilla pouring. The vanilla wasn't too thick coming out. The vanilla poured out like regular vanilla extract.

You can purchase the vanilla using the link above.

FotoJet Photo Collage Website Review

I reviewed FotoJet, a photo collage website, similar to Canva or PicMonkey.

First, you can sign up for the site, using your email or Facebook. Then, you can choose if you want classic collages or a creative collage. A classic collage is a simple collage. The layouts are grids, up to 16 squares for your photos. You can upload your photos from the computer or Facebook, once you choose classic or a creative collage.

A creative collage is simple collages with a bang. The collages have colorful backgrounds, such as a sofa with the photos seen on the wall or your photos seen on a rubix cube.

You also can play with fonts and background colors.

A neat feature is to check the box, which says keep photos while changing templates. This box is located under the templates. If you do not check the box, you will have to upload the photos again. You also can not save the photos to Fotojet permanently, like Canva. You will have to save the photos and download to your computer.

Next, you place the photos in the collage, you can crop; layer; add an effect; duplicate: rotate and flip; and delete. Under the effects, you can add filters; change opacity; and change exposure. You also can adjust advance options, such as brightness, contrast, saturation, and hue, plus reset everything.

The site is easy to use and free.

Mr. Humblebrag Review (Blogging for Books)

Disclaimer: I received this book in exchange for honest review.

I read Mr. Humblebrag: A Parody (Little Miss and Mr. ME ME ME), in exchange for honest review. It was the last book in the series by Dan Zevin, I have read. I also read Mr. Selfie, Little Miss Overshare, and Little Miss Basic. The book is not a childrens' book, no matter how cute the cover.

Mr. Humblebrag has successes in his life, but he downplays them to get sympathy from other folks.. He doesn't want folks to hate him for his successes and plays up his modesty. I have done this before. He makes me want to pop up upside the head throughout the whole book. .

You can purchase the book on Amazon using the link above. The book is prime-eligible.

Steps to a Better You Personal Trainer Review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: I received access to BioMechanicallyFit, in order to review the program.

I need to lose weight and tone my body, but I am not joining a gym. I have weights, a balancing ball, and other exercise equipment at home, which I use when I do workout, whenever that is. I also walk around the neighborhood or walk my oldest to school, a few times a month. Doing housework and chasing kids also counts as exercise.

The website provides a series of books and videos to help you lose weight. I do recommend getting a note pad to track progress and assessments from the books. The books come in two formats, ebook and pdf. What I did first was to download the books for all the modules because at the time, I was approved, I had limited home internet. I was using my phone's hot spot plus my regular hot spot to be able to work online. I had to download all I could before I ran out of data. The home internet just came back on and I am starting the program later than expected.

The programs consist of five modules. Each module has their own videos and books. The dashboard is the starting point. You will download worksheets to determine goals, health history, posture, and other vital information. Module One focuses on nutrition and body types. Module Two focuses on posture, static and dynamic.

Module Three through Five focuses on exercises. There is also a bonus section with books for specific workouts, like kettle bells, resistance bands, and trx workouts.

#Femtastic Black Panty Liners Review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: I received this in exchange for honest and unbiased review.

I received Black Panty Liners By Femtastic Super (Long) Liners, Unscented, 32 Count Package (Individually Wrapped). in exchange for honest review.

The panty liners are individually wrapped. They are great for regular wear or when you are unsure Aunt Flo is about to make a visit. Nothing like being prepared. Next, the wrapping is also black, not pink or white, like traditional panty liners. The liners only have adhesive in the middle, which makes it subject to become unstuck. I had a few fall off in the middle of the day. The liners did not come apart though, like some panty liners.

You can purchase the panty liners using the link above. The panty liners are prime-eligible.

Edison Antique Reproduction 60 Watt Bulbs Review

This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.

I received Enlightened Ambience 60 Watt Antique Edison Style Light Bulb Medium base(E 26) Dimmable Set of 4, in exchange for honest and unbiased review. The light bulbs come in a set of four. The bulbs come in a box enclosed in top and bottom foam for protection. The bulbs are a reproduction of the 1906 light bulb, designed by Thomas Edison.

The inside is a tungsten squirrel cage vertical filament. The glass is also hand blown. The bulbs can dim down to 25 watts with a maximum wattage of 60 watts.

I used the light bulbs in the bathroom as a test. The previous light bulb was an energy efficient coil light bulb. The lights were bright and gave off an orange glow, which balanced well with my orange walls and ceiling.

You can purchase the light bulbs, using the link above. The light bulbs are prime-eligible,

Squatty Potty Review

Disclaimer: I received this in exchange for honest review. This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.

In December, I was watching Dr. Oz. I normally don't watch his show, but I couldn't find the remote.

During the show, I saw the most interesting product, I wanted to review, The Squatty Potty, which helps you poop better. I had a bout of constipation recently. Even when taking a colon cleanse, things were hard to move still at times. I needed help without relying on probiotics and colon cleanses. They are good but I can't be in the bathroom all day or all night long. 

Reviewing the Squatty Potty required one of the hardest things, I had to do in blogging, make a phone call.  I have a journalism degree and I had to make calls to ask for interviews. I had to get over my fear and ask to review. The website had no email address so I had to call the company and ask if I could review the Squatty Potty. They said yes.

Then, while waiting for the potty to arrive, I saw this amazing video about Squatty Potty on Facebook.


According to the website and info I gathered from watching Dr. Oz, when you normally sit on the potty, your colon is crooked. With the squatty potty, your colon is straightened out and poo comes out more easily.

The potty comes in the 7 inch or 9 inch sizes. To use, you simply slide the potty under your toilet. When you use the bathroom, you are squatting versus sitting up straight. You will see a change in how long you stay in the bathroom. I wish there was a foldable, portable version, for when you are on the go. The Squatty Potty is also easy to clean and requires no assembly.

Things move a lot faster when using the squatty potty. You will notice the difference when using other non-squatty potty toilets. This has saved me time in the bathroom. Using the squatty potty has been some of the best few weeks of my life, even the baby is using the potty when he tries to use the toilet.

You also can purchase the Squatty Potty on Amazon in the bamboo (adjustable to 7 inch or 9 inches); the 7 inch original or the 9 inch. They also have the squatty potty bidet. The squatty potty website also has a store locator (scroll to bottom of the faq page and there is a box for the store locator) to buy the potty at a real store.

Valentia Clay Facial Mask and Scrub Review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.

I received both Valentia Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask - Natural and Organic Ingredients - With Kaolin Clay, Hisbiscus & Cranberry Fibers - 4 Oz and

Eternal Youth Exfoliating Scrub -Natural and Organic Ingredients with Green and White Teas + Tropical Butters - 4 Oz in exchange for honest review from Tomoson.

Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask

The mask does not have a strong scent. It also doesn't take too long to dry. I wanted this when I needed a pick me up. I like the smell of the product as well. My face felt refreshed after using it

Eternal Youth Exfoliating Scrub

The scrub had a nice smell and a nice texture to it. I wanted it to help exfoliate and soften the skin. You don't need to use much, but some days I over did it because I like the texture. I have used this on the whole body, focusing on face, arms, and legs. I need this product in a bigger bottle.

You can purchase both jars, using the links above. The jars are prime-eligible.
