Tomoson Review: Adovia Dead Sea Mask

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
What's the point of going to a Spa and getting a facial treatment when you can do it in the privacy of your own home? Do you struggle with acne and the over the counter fash washes/cream aren't working? Are you looking for something new? Adovia Dead Sea Mask is affordable and has at least 30 treatments that will last longer than a year.

I had the chance to go to Israel once. I wish I could say I swam in the Dead Sea, but my trip ended sooner than I expected and due to illness I was sent home. My brother and sister had the chance though. This mask is made by Dead Sea Experts with over 21 minerals to help your skin be healthy.
So you put this on and you spread it evenly and you leave it on for about 15-20 minutes, wash off with some warm water, and leave your face with a glow. It's really easy to use.
I tried this the other day and can already feel my acne disappearing. This is my go-to wash wash from now on.

Cleopatra's Choice has many products from the dead sea. Here are some facts about the mud mask taken from the website:
The Mask is a great solution for treating and preventing acne.
The Facial mask can work as an emergency spot-treatment for acne, pimples and blemishes.
The product leaves the skin with a noticeable healthy glow.
Dead Sea mud infuses the skin with minerals while firming and improving skin elasticity.
The Adovia Mud Mask is a “MUST-HAVE” product for anyone who suffers from oily or acne-prone skin.

You can go explore their website and see what other products they have. Or you can hop over to amazon.com and buy the Adovia Mask. There are many reviews about the product if you aren't sure yet. I've written one too: Under Rachael G. I definitely recommend it if you're looking for a way to improve your skin and fight off the acne.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

LunaGrown Review

I like jam during the spring and summer seasons. I don't know why, but I do. What I really want to do at some point is learn how to cook with Jam. I was sent two different kinds of jams from LunaGrown and so far I've tried one of them. The other I need to find time and actually cook with it. All LunaGrow products are hand made. They contain no artificial flavors, colors, or additives. They are also low in sugar.
I have tried the blueberry jam. It's so incredibly tasty. When I opened up the jar I saw all the blueberries in there as well. It's nice to see the actual texture of the jam and with this you also know it's been homemade.
I used it on toast.. but it's also good on pancakes, muffins, and anything else your creative mind wants to put it on.
I also received lemon marmalade. I haven't tried this yet, and I have never tried lemon jam before in my life. I'm really excited about this. I don't want to use it on bread or pancakes though, I want to use this for cooking. I want to find the perfect recipe to make with this marmalade. It's made with lemon, a dash of sugar and a hint of vanilla. There are recipes on the website and I really need to find the one that works for me. I'm really glad I was able to try a new jam that has been hand made. I'm really excited to do more with jam than just put it on toast. Go explore the website, it's very user friendly, and there's a lot of information about the jams that they carry.

Other jams that they offer are:
Apple Jam
Concord Grape
Cranberry Jam
Orange Marmalade
Pineapple Jam
Strawberry Jam
Rica Barreja

You can find LunaGrown in different parts of NY, or you can buy online. They are on facebook, twitter, and pinterest If you sign up for their newsletter, you'll automatically get 20% off your first online order, and be notified of other future promotions!

Perky Jerky Review

If you haven't already been able to tell, I'm a huge JERKY fan. I had the opportunity to try Perky Jerky and I can add it onto my list of Jerky's I enjoy.

OUR STORY One early morning two Jerks loaded up their gear and headed out to the mountain. On the first lift up, beef jerky was the only breakfast that these Jerks needed. They realized that the jerky wasn't all it could be; it was chewy and bland. As they floated their way down the mountain, they wondered how they could change the way of jerky.
On the next lift up, the greatest innovation in jerky since cracked pepper was born. Since then, these Jerks have developed the best tasting, most tender jerky around. Perky Jerky is the ultimate snack to help you get up the mountain, down the slope, or conquer whatever adventure you decide.
OUR CAUSE For us, making the world's best, all natural jerky is the easy part. Truly making a difference is harder. We like to jerk it forward. That's why a portion of our earnings is devoted to Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and Down Syndrome research.
With every bag purchased, you get to enjoy the best tasting jerky on the planet and contribute to causes that can make life better for kids who may one day grow up to be the next great meat snack entrepreneurs.

Jerky is for sure the Perfect Snack. Perky Jerky is all natural too. There are no nitrates, no preservatives, and no added msg. I like eating Jerky in the afternoon hours after lunch. It gives me that extra boost of protein I need. It's also quite tasty!
I received beef jerky and turkey jerky. I must say, my favorite out of the two is the Turkey Jerky. I'm a huge, huge, huge fan. The bag was finished within a day. The different flavors of Turkey Jerky that Perky Jerky offers are:
Original
Sweet & Spicy
Hot & Bothered (i need to try this)
and Teriyaki

The beef jerky also offers four flavors. They are:
Original
Sweet & Spicy
Hot & Bothered
and of course Teriyaki
Some more facts about Perky Jerky?
High in Protein
Gluten Free
Low Calorie
Low Carb
Low in Fat

Perky Jerky is found in most grocery stores. I know I have passed it in my local Harris Teeter every time I go down the chip aisle. You can also shop online for them as well. I definitely recommend some Perky Jerky! Find them on
facebook, twitter, youtube, pinterest, and instagram.

Rumiano Cheese Review

Rumiano Cheese Company is California's oldest family-owned cheese company, dedicated to the manufacture and distribution of the highest quality cheese. Our main focus is providing our customers with the utmost service and quality that we achieve by exceeding their expectations in all ways. Our success is measured by our loyalty to our employees and vendors and to the success of our customers.

If there's one thing I can't give up in life, it's cheese. Well give up with food. I love cheese, all sorts of cheese, and always looking to try new cheese. I was lucky enough to try Rumiano Cheese and I'm already a fan. I was given three free coupons so I could try some of their cheese. I gave one of the coupons to a co-worker and I have one left. I bought
Mild Cheddar block of cheese, and I think the next time I'll be buying cheese to put on sandwiches. I'm actually not so much of a cheddar fan, but I really enjoy this cheese. It's so smooth tasting and just captures all my taste buds. I brought it to work the other day with some crackers, and ended up just eating the cheese alone.

They offer natural and organic cheese. Some of the flavors they offer are:
Organic Colby
Organic Monterey Jack
Organic Pepper Jack
Organic Smoked Mozzarella
Find more here.


Here's a nice fact about Rumiano Cheese: Rumiano Cheese Company is proud to announce that they are the world's first non-GMO Project Verified cheese. They have recipes on the website where you can use their cheese to make some good foods. I should really check that out. I love cheese. I can't wait to go back to Whole Foods and get some more of their cheese. I'm telling you, it's that good! You can find them on:
facebook
twitter
youtube

I'm so happy I had a chance to try out another brand of one of my favorite foods. Check them out today!

Gabriella Chocolate Review

Chocolate is actually not my favorite, however, I had the chance to try Garbriella's Chocolate Truffles, and all I can say is absolutely amazing. I apologize in advanced for not using my own photos. I tried them, and they were gone.

In February 2011, Nancy Byrne, an artisan chocolatier & classically-trained pastry chef, along with her husband, Mike Byrne, an award-winning sales professional, introduced Gabriella Chocolates & Confections. Basing its headquarters & production facility in Venice, Florida, Gabriella Chocolates & Confections established itself as a premium online retailer and wholesale confectioner.
Gabriella Chocolates & Confections offers the most decadent dessert confection called a Dessert Truffle… Your experience begins with a beautiful, round chocolate confection, about twice the size of a traditional chocolate truffle. But, there is nothing traditional about what you are about to sink your teeth into. Underneath that decadent chocolate shell, lies the creamiest, smoothest cake that you have ever tasted. It is so silky, that you can hardly believe it is cake, at all! Oh, but they are not done. Inside that sublime cake, you find an even more luscious delight…
a magnificently, rich filling!!
Each is a deliciously, unique creation produced with all-natural ingredients and no added preservatives*. Only the finest quality ingredients are used and all of the chocolate is imported from Germany.

So I received four different truffles to try. I have a feeling I know which ones I received, but since they weren't labeled, I'm just going to guess.
Mocha Dessert Truffle. The mocha taste is extremely strong, but extremely good. I actually started talking to someone after eating this and they asked me if I just had a coffee. I said nope, but close! A shell of Premium, European 60% Dark Chocolate, a swirl of crema-colored white chocolate and a whole coffee bean complete this treasure.

Chocolate Torte Truffle. Omg. Amazing. I actually tried this one at work today and I shared it with my co-workers. We cut it up in fours and each had a bite. So chocolaty, so yummy, I almost wish I didn't share.At the heart of our Chocolate Torte Dessert Truffle is rich, creamy Chocolate Italian Buttercream that has been embraced by sumptuous chocolate cake. We finished this one in our Premium, European 60% Dark Chocolate to better contrast the lovely bitterness of its crunchy cocoa nib coating.

Caramel Pecan Truffle. I haven't tried this one yet. This is the last one I have. I'm kind of saving it for a special occasion. I almost don't want to eat it because it looks so pretty. I also want to wait, because once I eat the last one, they are gone. I love all things caramel so I'm very, very excited. We have wrapped smooth chocolate cake around a sweet, creamy caramel center. Then, after drenching it in Premium, European 60% Dark Chocolate, it is rolled in crunchy, toasted pecans. One bite and you’ll be hooked!

Gabriella Chocolates also has a Spirited Collection. Here's the picture of that collection. I'm pretty sure I tried the Bailey's one. I love baileys and I love this one. I literally ate it in pieces to savour every moment of it.
I really want to try the tiramisu one.

Not only do they sell truffles, but they have many other treats for you to choose from. Some of the desserts they offer are:
Dark Chocolate Pretzels
Caramel Cashew Clusters
Toffee
Right now they have Chocolate Bunnies and Eggs for Easter

Their deserts are wrapped pretty. You can buy online and they even accept paypal! There is free shipping with an order of 60$ or more. These are perfect gifts, or just because desserts. The truffles are a definite recommendation from me. They are made with all natural ingredients. If you aren't sold just yet, go here and read the reviews. They all have 5 stars. 5 gold stars even! I'm so incredibly happy I had the chance to try such amazing truffles. Thank you to Gabriella Chocolates!

Tahana Confections Review

I'm obsessed with Caramels. I don't know what it is about them but whenever I go into Walgreens, I always grab 3 of the ones by the register because they are 3 for 99cents and they are just so good. I was browsing different caramel places i could write to and I came across Tahana Confections. What actually drew me to them first was that they are from Portsmouth, NH. My boyfriend is originally from NH and he has friends that live in Portsmouth. Why not try one of my favorite sweets and share with him and his friends/family?

Our caramels are handmade with the freshest ingredients, sourced locally when possible. Made with no preservatives, these caramels are slow-cooked to create luscious, creamy, and velvety-smooth bites. Add in some really cool flavors, and you've got a moment to remember. When you're looking for a treat for you or the perfect gift for someone else, Tahana caramels are always the right choice.

So I'm the type of person who doesn't put it in my mouth and just chew away. I like to enjoy every minute of the caramel. I put it in my mouth or I break it in pieces and I either suck on it for a long time or just put the little pieces in my mouth one by one to make the caramel experience last a bit longer.
The flavors that they sell:
Espresso
Vanilla
Salted
Chocolate Ganache with Sea Salt
Seasoned Spice
Coconut
They also sell sauces as well.

So far I've only tried the salted and the Ganache, so far I'm in love. I am saving the vanilla for last. They taste just like they sound. Amazing. You can buy them in different quantities/varieties. Check out their online store. I'll be in NH this summer, I'll have to ask if there's a store around so I can go buy some more of these treats. They are very, very, very addicting. Check out if they sell them near you.

Find them on Facebook, twitter and pinterest. If you're a caramel fan, then you most likely will love these as well!

Starbucks Blonde Roast Review

This past December for the holidays my parents bought my boyfriend and I a Keurig Machine. I'm literally in love with it. What I'm not a fan of though is how expensive the K-cups are. When I had the chance to accept the Starbucks
campaign from Bzzagent I jumped at the mission. I love Starbucks and I enjoy trying new coffee.
I received Starbucks Veranda Blonde Roast. It's actually quite good. I go to starbucks at least once a week, but it's normally just for frapps and lattes. I'm not a huge coffee goer since I can now make it myself and save the $$. The story behind the coffee:
in Latin America, coffee farms are often run by families, with their own homes on the same land where their coffee grows. We’ve sipped coffee with these farmers for decades, sitting on their verandas, overlooking the lush beauty of the coffee trees rolling out in the distance. Most times it was a lightly roasted coffee like this one. It took us more than 80 tries to get it right—mellow and flavorful with a nice softness.

It has a really smooth taste. I don't drink my coffee black, so after putting in some creamer and sugar substitute I took a big sip and was like "omg this is really good". It came at a perfect time too. My dad was visiting and he loves coffee. He must have had 4 cups of the blonde roast. It's very mellow, but it's definitely a coffee I could see myself drinking every morning if I drank coffee every morning. Thank you to Bzzagent for giving me a chance to try this coffee out!

Puracy Review

Cleaning is not one of my favorite things to do; however, it makes it easier when there are great products to use. Puracy Home Essentials is a line of carefully developed home cleaning products made from plants, minerals, and natural fragrances. Our products are guaranteed to be effective, and may be safely used around kids, pets and your family. Since our products are natural, they contain renewable ingredients that safely break down in the environment. We pride ourselves in having formulations that are pure and free from any harsh chemicals, petroleum, or animal-based ingredients. Our entire line is proudly made in the USA.
I was sent Multi-surface cleaner and laundry detergent. First off the Multi-surface cleaner is amazing. Green Tea and Lime is the scent. It's definitely mutli-surface because it also cleans glass! Why buy one for counter tops, one for glass, when you can buy one that will clean everything? Some facts about the cleaner:
never tested on animals
Use on chrome, counters, electronics, floors, furniture, granite, glass, marble, sinks, stainless steel, tables, toys, and any other non-porous surface (multi surface for sure!)
made from plants and water so it's safe
natural
streakless/residue free

I love the fact that it doesn't leave one of those nasty smells after the fact that it's been cleaned. It leaves it's own scent a "hint of green tea and lime", that's a huge plus for me! It's very easy to use. It also does a great job cleaning! We will definitely be using this again in a few weeks before my boyfriends parents come to visit.

Are you worried about using a detergent that you're allergic to? Puracy detergent may be great for you then. It's hypoallergenic and it pumps up to 64 loads! The good thing about the pump bottle is it makes for clean laundry. You don't have to fill up a bottle of even measure. This has also never been tested on animals, and it's all natural. Depending on how much laundry you do, this could last you a few months to even a year.

Other products that Puracy has to offer:
Dish Soap
Hand Soap
and Stain Remover

You can buy them in bundles or you can buy them as single units. Here's a little bit more about puracy if you're not sure about the products yet:
Effective: Puracy worked tirelessly to create a line of proprietary plant and natural mineral-based cleaning products with botanical fragrances that did not have an asterisk at the end. Once you have our products in your hands, you’ll know that they have already passed head-to-head tests versus both synthetic and natural competitors.
Friendly: All of our products are uniquely formulated to do more with less. In other words, they last longer, use less packaging, and are made from the purest natural ingredients available.

Rhonda Shear Review & Giveaway

After spending 26 years in Hollywood as a stand-up comedienne and actress/hostess of USA: Up All Night, Rhonda Shear along with her childhood sweetheart turned husband/business partner, Van Fagan, created Shear Enterprises, LLC . Together they have combined passion and business sense building a multi-million dollar success story!
The premise was simple: create a business based on comfort, sex appeal, and fun. In 2003 they launched a website selling lingerie and shapewear out of their LA apartment. At over 40 these newlyweds were ready for a fresh start and would chance everything to make a new life in a new industry.
Read more here.

I could have picked some intimates, but I don't really like to wear a lot of those types of clothes, so I picked something that would represent me. As I don't like to take pictures of myself either, the images you'll see are all off the website.
This is the Sexy Snuggle Knit Shrug. I always wear a shrug, almost every day. I picked the charcoal color. I love it. It's definitely snug, and it's different than the others I own. They offer other colors too. Choose your own color here.

So I'm not the skinniest person out there, but that's okay. I like to wear shape wear when wearing dresses. I received the Ahh smooth Sensation Shaping Tank in nude. I like that I can wear this with my dresses and no one will know I'm wearing it. I have spanx already and I have to pull them up because most times you can see them. I don't like that feature. This one is perfect, because it will still shape my stomach. That's what I'm always so worried about.


Rhonda Shear offers a variety of different items. You can choose from:
Bras
Panties
sleepware
Shape
Sexy
and apparel

Khara Foods Review

I think I finally found that one hot sauce that's really hot! This would be from Khara Foods. Khara Foods is based in Beautiful Bend, Oregon, but our story has its roots in Mysore, southern India. This ancient city, remains a heart bed of culinary and cultural happenings.
Foods from Southern India are rich in flavor and offer a great nutritional balance using natural preservatives. This represents the cornerstone of our company’s philosophy.
Our specialty lies in making tasty and healthy fusion food products, like our signature hot sauce the Bangalore Torpedo, made in Bend, OR using traditional recipes and unique spices.

The signature hot sauce "Bangalore Torpedo" is definitely hot. I put some on my finger and first thought "oh this isn't so bad" two seconds later "omg this is hot!".
Hot is good though. The name derives from a legendary WW2 weapon. It is infused with flavors from the tropical fruit "jackfruit". You can put it on eggs, meats, stews, pizzas, and whatever else your heart desires. I always put hot sauce on my eggs. This definitely will be taking place of my current hot sauce.
The medium sauce is called "Tropical Torpedo". It's infused with mango's. It still has a kick to it, but it's not as hot as the Bangalore Torpedo. You can use this basically on the same foods, even noodles too.
Then there's the mild "Mint Mayhem". I haven't given this a taste yet. It's made with mint and peppers. You can use this with veggies, grilled meats, or even as a dip for chips!
I also received "Tangy Tamarind". This is a sauce that tastes just like your eating banana. It's good on bagels, toast, pancakes, waffles, ect. I love this spread.

They have many recipes for you to explore that you can use these sauces/spreads with. These products can be found at whole foods and other stores.
I've been looking for a hot sauce that actually has a "kick to it" and makes my eyes water. I think I have finally found it. The Bangalore Torpedo is definitely hot an spicy. You can find out more by emailing at: info@heatfrmtheeast.com or you can find them on facebook: facebook.com/heatfromtheeast. Try out Khara Foods today!

Munch of Fun Review

Goodness for the whole kid I may not be a kid, but this is goodness for me too! Before I even show you what's in these boxes, let me tell you my thoughts. As soon as I saw them I immediately thought of different ways they could be used. If I were a child I'd want this to be my breakfast. I could bring my breakfast to school and eat it with my classmates, actually I don't think I'd share. Better yet, these would be good boxes to have for students who don't get breakfast at home. Yes they have free breakfasts for kids at school or they pay, but still when you see what's inside of them, they are much better than school breakfasts. Also, this would be a good on-the-go snack! Let's say you were on a road trip, or going on a vacation. You were sitting in the car with your kids for at least 3-5 hours. You wanted to keep them happy, and they kept complaining that they were hungry. You bring out the Munch of Fun boxes and they are happy and satisfied. All these ideas for these boxes! I also brought it to work to show my co-worker and the first words out of her mouth "My grandkids would love these". So as you see above I received two boxes. One is a breakfast box, and the other could be used as an afternoon snack.

So what's in the breakfast box?
The breakfast box includes: kashi cereal, some strawberrie crisps, apple chips, some dark chocolate peanut butter a juice box, and a toy! The box itself is pretty cool too. You can definitely recycle it (as long as it stays like it is, but you never know as kids); it can be their new lunch box for a few days!

Box two would be for lunch. There are so many surprises in each of the boxes. I got really excited when I saw tuna in the 2nd box. I love tuna. I literally eat tuna 3 days out of the week for lunch!

The features of these boxes:
They require no cleanup
Requires no refrigeration
Makes for the perfect gift idea
Great for field trips (even better idea!)
Packed with protein
Low in sugar
High in fiber
They are fun!!!!

There are different boxes for you to choose from, and you can explore your options here.I'm a kid at heart. I'd enjoy almost every single one of these. I don't even want to eat anything out of them, but I do believe Monday I'll be enjoying that can of tuna!. Read all about how Kristen came about creating these awesome fun boxes here. Munch of Fun boxes are a fantastic creation. You can follow munch of fun on twitter, or facebook. I'm so incredibly fascinated with these boxes, I can't wait to share this review with all my friends/family/social media that have kids. Heck maybe my friends will want these for themselves! Head over to Munch of Fun to see what fun you can bring into your household!

PrimeSnax Review

As you may have seen I'm a huge jerky fan as of lately. I recently tried it and found a new love for it. I've been trying to find many jerky companies to try out. This one is all about Prime Snax Jerky.
Prime Snax, Inc was incorporated 2006. It was the combining of Chipper Snax, Inc and Meat Snacks, Inc. Now operating under the Prime Snax umbrella, we offer various flavors and cuts of beef jerky including AZ Jacks Brand, Chipper Snax Brand, Desert Star Brand, Nature Snack Organic and Private Labels.

I was sent Arizona Jacks and Desert Star brands. The Arizona Jacks story: Arizona has been symbolized as the western frontier experience. Many old western movies have their setting in southern Utah and Arizona. The Grand Canyon is a wonder of the world and is found in Arizona. This country is hand carved by the creator of the west, Mother Nature. Beef jerky was a stable to the people who settled in the western United States as well as the local indigenous people. They called dried, cured meat “Pemmican”. We call it Arizona Jacks Beef Jerky in our day and age!

The Desert Star brand Story: if you have not experienced the Arizona desert sitting around a campfire away from the lights of the city with its clear open view of the heavens, you will have missed the special experience that the Desert Star’s offer. Desert Star brand of beef jerky was inspired by the simple challenging life of the desert. The extremes of temperature, storms and horizons reflect the extreme taste sensation of our Desert Star beef jerky products. This brand of beef jerky combines a unique blend of spices, marinated to absorb the essence of lean cuts of beef and spice, cured with the slow smoky flavor of an outdoor fire, making eating this product reminiscent of the outdoor “Desert Star” experience. This product is available in 3 oz bags including Original, Peppered, Teriyaki and soon a new flavor profile Honey B.B.Q.

Now take a look at all this jerky!
Have you ever seen jerky that big before? I haven't. I've never seen such large strips of jerky in my life! There are four flavors of the large jerky that's called "super giga bite": original, teriyaki, hot, and peppered. I am obsessed with the hot jerky. I love all foods that have a kick to it. I even love all these teriyaki as of lately. The Super Giga bite is 22x5.5 inches. Crazy. The long jerky that you see are the whipper snackers. Those are 3 foot long beef sticks. They offer three flavors of that: Original, Teriyaki, and Pepperoni. The whipper snacks and the super giga jerky is from the Arizona Jacks brand.

It's always nice to try out Jerky. I love that's it a low carb snack packed with lots of protein. Prime Snax will definitely always stand out in my mind now.
