New York Biology Improved Formula Retinol Cream #NewYorkBiology #TopQuality #Retinol

New York Biology Improved Formula Retinol Cream #Review #NewYorkBiology #TopQuality #Retinol

I'm one to fight the signs of aging and love to try out new beauty products to help with the cause. When you get a certain age you become more aware of those fine lines, wrinkles and other spots that happen. Yeah, it happens to everyone at some point.

I was excited to be able to try out the New York Biology Improved Formula Retinol Cream recently. It comes in an attractive silver colored box and jar with black lettering. The first thing I liked about this moisturizer or cream is the neat way you get it out of the airtight jar. All you do is press the white covering with the little hole that is in the middle of the jar to get a small amount of the cream. This is so much more sanitary to use than regular jars because you don't have to dip your finger in the jar.

The cream itself is a nice texture, without being too thick or thin. I would say it's just about the right consistency for my needs. It's white in color and has a light, nearly odorless scent which is great for not clashing with my perfume. Some of the effective ingredients include 2.5% Retinol, Green Tea, Vitamin E and B5, Jojoba Oil, Hyaluronic Acid. These help with wrinkles, fine lines, and also to firm and make your skin smoother. I'm not prone to sensitive skin, but if you do the company states that it is good for all skin types.

I've been using the New York Biology Improved Formula Retinol Cream for a few days now, before bedtime and under my makeup. It glides on my facial skin smoothly and absorbs very quickly, with no sticky feeling afterward. So far my skin feels softer and a little firmer than it has been recently. It's a product that I will continue to use in my skin-care regimen.

You'll be happy to know that this product is made in the USA and if interested you can find it on Amazon.

Great For Taking Anywhere ~ Kuuk Travel Cup Stainless Steel Thermos Mug For Coffee or Tea #travelthermos #review

Great For Taking Anywhere ~ Kuuk Travel Cup Stainless Steel Thermos Mug For Coffee or Tea #travelthermos #review

Since fall is here I'm drinking more coffee and hot tea with the cooler days upon us. It's going to get even colder before we know it and I need something to take with me in the car when traveling. The Kuuk Travel Cup Stainless Steel Thermos Mug for Coffee or Tea is a great choice for me.

The Kuuk Thermos Mug is a sleek looking item which is gray in color and holds 12 ounces of liquid. I absolutely love so many things about this thermos. First of all, it is not a cheaply made item, but is made with 304 food grade stainless steel and copper. It keeps coffee or tea hotter longer with the double walled vacuum insulation. 

There is a rubber grip around the entire mug which is easy to get a hold of so you don't have to worry about it slipping out of your hand. The mug unscrews on the top so you can pour your coffee or tea in with no problem. 

To take a drink or sip of your coffee you flip the top and there is a small opening. This is so nice in that you don't get a big amount splashing in your face while taking a drink. Afterwards, you can press the top back down and you can hear a click, which seals it and keeps your coffee nice and hot.

The thermos is great to take along in the car and it fits my cup holder nicely with no problem. After a few hours my coffee was still hot, unlike a regular take-out cup you get at restaurants. The Kuuk Thermos Mug would be great to take along to work, going on a picnic, or wherever you can think of!

If interested in one for yourself you can find it on Amazon.

Beautify Your Home With ~ Artwork from Fulcrum Gallery #Review #FulcrumGallery

Beautify Your Home With ~ Artwork from
 Fulcrum Gallery #Review #FulcrumGallery

I've had the pleasure to review some of Fulcrum Gallery's artwork in the past and can honestly say that they have quality products! If you haven't heard of Fulcrum Gallery before you really should check them out. They have a wide array of beautiful artwork for every room in your home. Plus they offer so many styles of art, including traditional, modern, decorative, classical, vintage and photography.

Fulcrum Gallery is extraordinary in that every piece of artwork that you order is individually made per your order. You can choose what type of frame and color of mat you prefer, which is so nice. They have many choices to choose from that it's hard to pick just one.

When I received my picture today, it was packaged very safely with no problem. Included with my artwork were two brackets. One is secured on the back of it and another is used to attach to your wall. If you order larger items they include four brackets - two for the wall and two which are attached to the back. I didn't know but this way it keeps your artwork in place so it won't shift after awhile. All the directions to hang your artwork on included on their website.

I chose the T.C. Chiu Hummingbirds With Lilies which I loved right away! I enjoy watching hummingbirds flutter around in the summer and now I can look at my picture to see them every day. The colors are vibrant and magnificent and the size of this print with the frame included is 15" x 17". If you like hummingbird paintings as much as I do, they have many others to choose from which are just as beautiful.

The color of the frame I chose is classic antique silver, which I'm so happy with also. The inside edge of the frame has ornate decoration, which makes it looks even more rich looking. It really is attractive and goes so nicely with the print.

As you can tell, I'm quite pleased with my new artwork from Fulcrum Gallery! With the holidays fast approaching (sooner than you think) this would be a great place to get a special gift for someone you know - or for yourself!

If for some reason you aren't happy with any of their products they do offer a 30 day return policy, less shipping charges.

Go In The Right Direction ~ Kulaton Hiking Compass with Luminous Display #Kulaton #Review

Go In The Right Direction  ~ Kulaton Hiking Compass with Luminous Display #Kulaton #Review

Have you ever been lost in the woods or somewhere else and didn't know the right way to go? I can't say that I have in the past but it doesn't sound too fun at all. The Kulaton Hiking Compass with Luminous Display is the perfect compass to take with you when you need to navigate in the right direction. It's great for hiking, walking in the woods, fishing or camping.

This is a sturdy little compass which is made of metal and is very durable. It's lightweight and easy to take with you with it's cover that folds over the compass and secures with a latch. You won't have to worry about dropping the Kulaton Hiking Compass either, because of the shakeproof design. 

A great feature about this handy little compass is the night mode. To use all you do is turn the little button or switch which is located on the back of the compass. It lights up the compass with a red LED light which makes it easy to see in the dark. The days are getting shorter since the fall season is here, so this is a great feature to have for deer hunters roaming in the woods.

Although I don't know much about compasses, this Kulaton Hiking Compass worked just fine.  I know the directions around my house and the surrounding crop land and it was spot on for pointing to the N, S, W and E. You'll want to make sure to keep the box that the compass comes in for directions on how to use it to find a specific site. 

The compass also comes with a keyring compass which was a nice bonus. It's great to use when you don't have the other one handy.

If you are interested in one for yourself they can be found on Amazon.
