..::Product Review::.. Cassani's Fogless Shower Mirror


My Review of Cassani's Fogless Shower Mirror

What is it exactly?

     From the website. . .
"Shower mirrors for shaving abound in your local and online stores, yet they all have shortcomings such as an expensive price tag or a faulty mechanism. The Fogless Shower Mirror by Cassani uses a patented technology which infuses anti-fog nanotechnology into the reflective surface of our mirror. You simply follow our 2 minute set-up instructions and your mirror is ready for you. Our only warning is when cleaning, to rinse your fogless mirror with clean, warm, running water and gently rubbing it with your (clean) finger/s. We hope you'll choose us for your shaving shower mirror. We promise you will be happy you did."

Review…


I was sent a fogless mirror and razor holder from the Cassani Company to review. 

This mirror costs $14.99.  Shipping is free with Amazon Prime.


Packaging & Presentation of Cassani's Fogless Shower Mirror

This mirror arrived in great condition.  There were no dents, defects, nor issues during shipment.  The package included the mirror itself, it's holder, and a razor holder.  The box is nice.  It is a cardboard flip-top.  It is light blue in color.  It measures 6.75" x 9.5" x 1.25".  It was shipped in a brown exterior box for protection.


The front of the box labels the product and brand.  It also mentions that this mirror uses anti-fog nanotechnology.  The back of the box lists the benefits of a shower shave, describes the experience you'll have with this mirror, the elegance of its design, directions, and website information.


Both sides of the box say the same information.  It lists the box's contents. The bottom of the box is where you'll find the company's contact information.  This mirror is made in China.



Everything inside the box was packaged really nicely.  Nothing moved, and there wasn't any damage.


A little pamphlet was included.  It outlines the instructions on installation, and the backside is informative with FAQ's.


My Personal Experience with Cassani's Fogless Shower Mirror

I've always wanted one of these.  They are SO convenient-- especially with face and hair masks.  You can even tweeze your eyebrows in the shower (when the hair follicle is the softest!).  It looks great in my shower, so that's a good thing, too!


First, I took out the mounts.  They have a sticky side that you must reveal by pulling off the backing.  Make sure that you wash the shower walls with rubbing alcohol before installation.  They are easy to put up-- peel and stick!


Next, peel the front and back off of the mirror before placing it on the hanger.


It looks so cute!


Pros of Cassani's Fogless Shower Mirror
  • I love the rimless look.
  • Durable.
  • Doesn't fog.  That's the point, so I'm glad I can list this under 'pros'!
  • Packaged nicely and securely.
        Cons of Cassani's Fogless Shower Mirror
        • I haven't found any cons of this mirror.
              Summary

              Yes, this is exactly what I was looking for.  It's not in anyway obnoxious.  It serves its purpose, and does it with style!  I love how it looks, how it works, and the ease of use.  I definitely recommend this!

              ..::Review + Giveaway::.. Swift-n-Snug Running/Activity Belt with LED + Video



              My Review of the Swift-n-Snug Running/Activity Belt with LED

              What is it exactly?

                   From the website. . .
              "Swift-n-Snug Running/Activity Belt is a versatile belt which can be used for any outdoor sports, running, jogging, cycling, walking, hiking etc. It comes with a 3-Mode LED light that is designed for safety by making the user highly visible to passing vehicles. The belt comes with a spacious pocket which can hold different models of smartphones including the large-screen ones like iPhone 6+ (even in a case) apart from other items like cards, keys, cash etc."

              Review…

              I was sent a yellow running/activity LED running belt from Swift-n-Snug to review.  

              The price for this belt is $16.99.  Shipping is free with Amazon Prime.


              Packaging & Presentation of the Swift-n-Snug Running/Activity Belt with LED

              This running belt arrived in perfect condition.  There were no damages, defects, nor issues during shipment.  The exterior box is clear, so you can see through to the actual product.  The box measures 4.25" x 1.75" x 1.75".  

              The front of the box labels the product and brand.  It has a picture of the belt laid out.  The back is totally clear, so you can see the folded belt.



              The right side of the box has the weight, width, material, and battery details.  The contact information is also listed here.  This belt is made in China.  The left side of the box details four product features:

              + Superior quality & stylish design
              + Pocket with zipper for smartphone, cash, and keys
              + Adjustable elastic band to fit most waist sizes
              + 3-mode LED for better visibility (battery included)



              The box is a plastic flip-top, and everything is folded and packaged neatly.


              My Personal Experience with the Swift-n-Snug Running/Activity Belt with LED

              I really enjoy running.  Jogging, mostly.  :)  The only problem is that I have to carry a few things, and it's never easy.  This belt really helps hold everything for me.  Plus, it's comfortable.

              The belt has elastic on it, so it's easy to size.  There is a nice buckle to keep it in place.



              The battery is located in the little yellow box that is screwed onto the belt.  The button that controls the LED modes is located on the side.


              There is a zipper that opens to a large pouch.  The LED strips surround the zipper.


              Watch this video to see it in action!


              Pros of the Swift-n-Snug Running/Activity Belt with LED
              • Great quality-- this will last a long time.
              • Pocket is pretty large-- you can store quite a few things in here.
              • Adjustable.
              • Easy to care for.
              • The LED has three modes.
              Cons of the Swift-n-Snug Running/Activity Belt with LED
              • The pocket sort of fits my Note 3, but it's a tight fit.  It fits better if I take my case off (which I don't always feel comfortable doing).
              Summary

              This is really cute and functional.  I love how it fits, and that it's easy to use.  It really helps during use, and I can even add a few things (like my ID just in case).  You should definitely check this out.  It'll make a great gift for somebody who avidly jogs.

              ..::Product Review::.. Turkey Creek Essentials' 18" Microfiber Mop Pads


              My Review of Turkey Creek Essentials' 18" Microfiber Mop Pads

              What is it exactly?

                   From the website. . .
              "Our small family owned business has recently launched a new Turkey Creek Essentials brand product. Our product is Microfiber Mop Pads - 18 Inch 2 Pack Premium Commercial Refill for Most Home or Industrial Velcro Frames. They are Foam Filled Replacements - Durable Washable Top Quality Split Microfiber and can be used Wet or as Dry Dust Mop Refills."

              Review…


              I was sent a (2) pack of 18" Microfiber Mop Pads from Turkey Creek Essentials to review. 

              This pack costs $17.67.  Shipping is free with Amazon Prime.


              Packaging & Presentation of Turkey Creek Essentials' 18" Microfiber Mop Pads

              This pack of microfiber mop pads arrived in great condition.  There were no dents, defects, nor issues during shipment.  The package included (2) separate mop pads.


              The back of each pad has the product tag, materials, care instructions, and easy-pull loop.


              My Personal Experience with Turkey Creek Essentials' 18" Microfiber Mop Pads

              I use mop pads all the time.  I have a little squirt bottle that I make up a floor-cleaning solution, and use that once per week.  During the week, I use plain 'ol water on my floor, but I feel it needs a deep scrub once per week.


              These are so easy to use.  Take a basic Velcro mop, and stick the pad on!  The surface area is so large, yet it is easy to maneuver and control.




              When you are finished mopping, use the easy-pull tab to take it off and stick it right in the washing machine!  I like to line dry these, so they hold up for a longer time.


              Pros of Turkey Creek Essentials' 18" Microfiber Mop Pads
              • Soft.
              • Easy to store.
              • Large surface area.
              • Easy to clean!
              • Great, clean color.
                    Cons of Turkey Creek Essentials' 18" Microfiber Mop Pads
                    • I haven't found any cons of these pads.
                          Summary

                          If you are looking for a basic mop pad, this is a great one for a deep clean that is necessary every once in a while.  They are well-made, soft for your floors, yet functional. They fit the mop handles that I have, so it's perfect!

                          ..::Glitz 'n Glamour::.. Love Grey Beauty Shop Review


                          Hello, everyone! I don’t know about you all, but I personally LOVE foundation, concealer, and powders. I just really like to try new things and see what I like or what I would recommend to someone that prefers a different coverage than what I personally like. With that being said, I was sent a trio set of 'Shake Down Liquid Powder Mineral Foundation', 'Roll with Me Liquid Powder Mineral Concealer', and 'Give ‘em the Brush-off HD Sheer Finishing Veil'. I was also sent a nice foundation application brush, all of these products are from Love Grey Beauty on Etsy.

                           

                          First, I tried the 'Shake Down Liquid Powder Mineral Foundation', in the color Penelope.

                           

                           If it helps you understand the coloring, I wear the color NW 20 in MAC's Prolong Wear line. The bottle is .8 FL OZ/ 25mL, the label on the bottle does have the ingredients listed, I personally can read a few of them but the print is so small I cannot read all of them. First off I have to say this looks very watery in the bottle, so I did have to shake the product before I used it. After I shook the foundation I saw that it seemed to thicken up in the bottle, but just a little. I put some on my hand before putting it on my face and it was very watery, it started to roll off my hand so I highly suggest using a foundation brush with this product.


                           Once I tested it on my hand, I put some foundation in the cap of the bottle, so I could apply it with the brush that I was sent.


                           The product goes on very light, the color was perfect for my skin tone (although I would have to go up a shade for summer). I applied it all over my face, and I could tell that it does dry quickly, and it thickens up some once applied to my face. I would recommend this product to younger women or girls that need a light coverage foundation, I think this is perfect for someone that does not need nor want a medium-to-full coverage foundation. I personally like a medium-to-full coverage foundation, but I would wear this in the summer if I just wanted a very light coverage. Also, the foundation brush that I was sent with these products is a nice brush, not what I normally use for foundation, but it works well with this foundation. I felt it really moved the product where it need to be. 

                          Next, I tried the 'Roll with Me Liquid Powder Mineral Concealer', also in the shade Penelope.


                           This is a 2FL Oz/ 7mL bottle, it does have the ingredients listed and I can read them on this bottle. This concealer is really neat. I have never really seen a concealer that is actually a roll on concealer, it shocked me!


                           With that being said, it is watery and not thick like your normal concealer would be-- so make sure you shake it well before using.  This concealer for me did not work for covering dark circles *NOTE: I was really tired the day I tried this, so my circles were more distinct than what they normally are.


                           On a good note, I really liked this product as an under eye highlight for the days that my circles are not bad. I thought this would be a gorgeous under eye highlight. That was my first thought after putting this on. This product went on easily, and I had no issues with the roller ball other than having to prime it before use. 

                          Lastly, I tried the 'Give ‘em the Brush-off HD Sheer Finishing Veil', in the shade Penelope


                          The bottle does have the size, but it is just to small for me to read. The ingredients are also listed and I can read them perfectly. This product has the brush built into the bottle which I love for something quick.


                           I really couldn't tell a difference after putting this on my face at first, so I put some on my hand and it is really nice. I love the coloring of this powder, it reminds me of a nice sheer bronzer. I can see some golden hints in this powder. I would definitely use this over my normal foundation for a nice sheer powder that would also give me a nice, golden glow. 

                          Overall, the foundation was nice-- just not what I personally like, but I would definitely recommend to someone who likes the light coverage foundation. The concealer is very different from what I have used before, and I thought it was very neat. I would recommend this to anyone who does not have an issue with dark circles or bags but if you only get them every once in a while this would be an awesome under eye highlight, at least for me. The finishing veil, is my favorite product of all that was sent. I really love this product, and see myself using it a lot this summer. I would recommend this to anyone. Just remember it does have a golden shine to it. Please check out Love Grey Beauty on Etsy.
