716tk8QWDiL._SL1160_
I love this sponge. I love how easy it is to use and that I can use it with no chemicals if I chose. It felt very nice on my skin when I used it. I recommend this to anyone looking for a great exfoliating sponge.

 

 

 

You’ll soon discover why so many people describe it as the “Miracle Sponge” because of how many tasks it helps with:

-Gently Exfoliates
-Deeply Cleanses
-Effectively Detoxifies
-Luxuriously Refreshes
-Naturally Moisturizes

“MIRACLE SPONGE” FOR YOUR DAILY BEAUTY REGIME – No other beauty sponge will work so hard for you! This luxuriously soft sponge gently exfoliates, cleanses, and is naturally pH balanced. The natural fibers help absorb excess oils, impurities and acne causing bacteria while leaving your face refreshed and radiant. Helps stimulate blood circulation and accelerate skin regeneration, leaving radiant and hydrated skin. Even preps skin to boost the absorption of your favorite serums and creams.
LUXURIOUSLY GENTLE EXFOLIATION FOR DAILY USE – Soft enough for a baby’s skin while still providing effective exfoliation. Relaxing and gentle for daily use even on the most sensitive skin. Say goodbye to the irritation caused by harsher exfoliating methods and expensive electronic gadgets. You don’t even need to use a face cleanser, unless you want to.

NEW IMPROVED TEARDROP SHAPE – FOR FACE AND BODY – New ergonomically designed teardrop shape fits comfortably in the palm of your hand while the soft rounded point allows you to gently exfoliate sensitive hard to reach areas around your eyes. Ideal shape for the contours of your face but still large enough for your body. You’ll love using it in the shower or by the mirror!

Our Konjac fiber is grown on the pristine volcanic plains of Jeju Island in South Korea, free from chemicals, pollution and irritants.

Triple-Chocolate Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies

raspcookie
This is a decadent cookie for the holidays. I don’t find the drizzle necessary as they are really beautiful without it. This is from Bon Appétit Magazine (December 2004)and is featured as part of their Christmas Cookies special. The ranges for chocolate chips and cranberries just depend on how loaded you want your cookie.
(The original recipe calls for the max. amount but I find that a bit much.) You can add some orange zest to the batter for a little extra seasonal flavor.

27 min | 15 min prep
30 cookies

Ingredients

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
10 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed golden brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup old fashioned oats
1/4-1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4-1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
1/4-1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1/4-1/2 cup coarsely chopped fresh cranberries, frozen
cranberries or dried cranberries (can also use dried cherries)
2 ounces milk chocolate or white chocolate, chopped (for drizzling)

Directions

Position rack in center of oven and preheat to 350°F Line 2 large rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper.
Whisk flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in medium bowl to blend. Using electric mixer, beat butter and both sugars in large bowl until smooth.
Beat in egg and vanilla. Add flour mixture and oats and stir until blended. Stir in all chocolate chips and cranberries.
Drop batter by rounded tablespoonfuls onto prepared sheets, 2 inches apart.
Bake cookies, 1 sheet at a time, until edges are light brown, about 12-16 minutes (depending on how soft or crispy you want them). Cool on sheets 5 minutes. Transfer to rack; cool completely.
(If drizzling: Stir chopped milk chocolate in top of double boiler until melted and smooth. Using small spoon, drizzle melted chocolate over cookies in zigzag pattern. Let stand until milk chocolate sets, about 1 hour)

3 Shatterproof Glass Water Bottle Review

Posted By on June 8, 2014

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

1552d33110d1e383375245f24db937600b16e07fThe Glasstic Glass Water Bottle is perfect for all of your favorite beverages for the following key reasons but are greatly preferred by Essential Oil and Alkaline Water drinkers due to the glass water bottle insert that contains their infused water products.  These users demand Glass!

Shatterproof: Designed with a glass insert on the inside of a durable plastic outer casing that helps protect from breakage while providing containment and shatter proofing even if the glass does break.  Our customers love that we offer glass insert replacements for the life of the product for just the cost of shipping.  This encourages reuse. Competitors don’t provide this safety or reusability!

Safe & Pure: contains a 16oz pure glass insert on the inside where your liquids are and a BPA Free Plastic outer shell around the glass to provide durability and containment.  No risk of bad chemicals leaching into your water or beverage.  For users of Essential Oils or Alkaline Water this is mandatory!

Clean: Product can be easily disassembled and cleaned manually or in the top rack of a dishwasher.  Essential oil users required this ability and we provided it. No more worrying if the plastic straw is full of bacteria or not…

Temperate: Double layered protection with a space between the glass and plastic which provides for total condensation protection and some additional insulation for your beverage.  Won’t make a mess on your wood table!

Easy to Use: Leak-proof flip cap lid to “drink on the go” and a safety lock to prevent  accidental opening & leakage.  Essential oil users love this because it is a far better solution than using a mason jar or less safe glass water bottle for their citrus based essential oils.
3e047fcc981a3c525255646ff7fc82fd000a6c11

Portable: The easy to carry handle & protective casing makes it perfect for…
Pools & Waterparks
Beaches & Lakes
The Golf Course & Other Sporting Events
Gyms & Yoga Studios
Schools

Essential oil users require a glass bottle that they can confidently carry their citrus essential oil infused waters with them everywhere they go…Glasstic delivers!

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.
