#smalets knee compression brace review.

 I received this product for free or highly reduced I don't remember. I knew I needed relief and it was a day my knee was locked up. I got it on size xl. My pants are a  size L so figured it would fit. I do squats and leg training to help with lifting without using my back. So as you can see it is well defined.

But this size is too small and painful. I am sure if sizing were different it would work.  I measured, but it still does not fit properly. 3 stars, better sizing would have worked. Love the color, but no way could I lose  that much muscle or would I want too! Great product for a smaller person . I would order 1-2 sizes up esp if you are bulky.  Disclaimer _ I received this product at a discount, no review was required.  https://www.amz.one/p/b01jmu9usq

Curél® Hydra Therapy

Curél® Hydra Therapy

*This post is sponsored by  #CurelSkincare #sponsored   I received product for review free from @crowdtap

I dislike having dry skin and was offered the chance at trying the new Curel Hydra Therapy that is water activated. At first, I was not sure if this would be a perfect fit, but I did have dry skin and as the seasons change it tends to be a problem. 
My experience with this product was a positive one. However using it while in the shower left a slight residue and made the tub slick. I then decided to use it after I got out of the shower still wet and it worked wonderfully without any clean up. It made my skin soft and supple again and I did not have the dry crackle look on my skin. I had been using another product, but stopped so this product and the other could be compared. Hydra Therapy worked faster and moisturized my skin a little better.  I would definitely recommend this to others that are looking for a substantial hydration and moisturizer.

Kitchen Tool

 #iBambooMart cutting board and utensils are a beautiful set. I needed one because it has been 35 years since I have had one. Yes, you read that right, I had one from my mom that was passed to me many years ago, but never a new wooden one. The plastic ones do not suit me at all. They melt, burn, and never really feel clean after a few uses. My old one finally broke after 50 years of use, now that is a great product that lasts that long.  When I purchased this product I thought the same since the plastic ones don't last a wooden one could. This one comes with a thirty-day money back guarantee. 

I must admit it is lighter due to the type of wood, but we have come so far in history that this is an eco-friendly board. Easy to move and store. I thought at first looks it would be easy to cut this board while chopping, but it did not. It was smooth and effortless. The lip around the board stopped anything from rolling off such as the crazy carrot that loves to roll once you chop it tend to want to run away however the lip caught it and stopped it from leaving the cutting board. It is antimicrobial, antibacterial and does not retain foodborne pathogens naturally. Unlike wood and plastic no need to break out the crazy chemicals to clean. I still, however, can't bring myself to use soap and water, I use an antibacterial soap and scrub my board then put it into the drainer to dry, easily stored against the wall.  It fits perfectly with any kitchen decor. The utensils are easy to use and as durable as the board.

Great Frother

Blümwares Vienne Automatic Milk Frother and Heater | Stainless Electric Carafe | Frother, Warmer, and Cappuccino Maker

Blümwares Vienne Automatic Milk Frother and Heater | Stainless Electric Carafe | Frother, Warmer, and Cappuccino Maker Anyone that knows me will understand this purchase without explanation. I have a deep love for coffee and anything related. I froth my milk for every cup I drink either hot or cold depending on my mood. No longer will I have to heat my milk in the microwave and use a handheld little frother , those tend to rust over a years time. #Belmint
Blumwares Vienne Frother is far superior to any I have used including the steam frother on my espresso machine. This product is a total of five pieces, lid, the machine with handle, the base with corded plug and two heads one to whip cold milk, and a different head to frothe hot milk. When you are using one or the other the second head can easily snap into the lid of the machine securely.
There are two measuring notches inside the machine. I use skim milk because it works so much better for me and always has with any machine. If you want a cold whip hit the bottom button with a little snowflake emblem, hot the top button with a heat symbol. Simply push the button it will light up when it is finished the light will being blinking the stop then you are ready to use the milk.
The canister removes from the base to pour easily, wash out with soap and water then wipe clean. Easily stores on counter top. I love the design as it fits with my kitchen appliances and wonderful addition since I use it daily.

Elegant Shaker

 Cocktail Shaker Set -Premium Bartender Kit in a Luxury Bag: Martini Bar Shaker,Jigger,2 Liquor Pourers &; ebook : 100 Cocktail Drinks Recipes - Lifetime Guarantee on all the Barware Tools by SHIKSHOOK

#SHIKSHOOK, I was surprised when I received this product. It has been many years since I had fixed any mixed drink at all. So to begin with my review is from a novice with this type of Cocktail Shaker Set. Let me explain how elegant this Shaker is, yet very functional. It also comes with an ebook offer free for people like myself that has no clue what they are doing.  Once I understood how to use it I was able to make my own recipe.

There are two pourers, double sided 1 and 1/2 oz jigger measure, the shaker, strainer and cap in a very nice black velveteen bag and ebook. A great addition if you are already an avid bar user or a novice starting a bar for friends or an evening at home. My bar is small and now looks complete and not just a few bottles and glasses sitting around. I have been experimenting with the recipes for the last week being engrossed in the ebook and the many different drinks you can make and not all have to contain alcohol.  I enjoy the virgin mixes as well.

At first, I was going to give this as a gift, but while using it I became attached. It has a lifetime guarantee. I will have to purchase another to give as a gift. Easy to clean and dishwasher safe. If you drop it there will be no dings or dents, very sturdy. I had fun, enjoyed the ebook and definitely enjoy the look of my bar.

Pure Hair Therapy

Pure Hair Therapy

L’Oreal Paris Advanced Haircare 

Extraordinary Oil

This trio of products are the most extensive, clean, lightweight product for my hair I have ever used. 
 I was skeptical when I first poured the shampoo into my hand. I had to do a double-take to make sure I picked up the right bottle. I then stood there staring at it wondering if this was really going to work. It felt like oil, it looked like oil and my mind went back and forth. I then just went for it. I was surprised at the luxurious lather since my hair is long it usually takes a good amount of shampoo but this appeared to cover all my hair without a problem. I worked it into my scalp and to the ends of my hair that seriously needed some attention. The rinsing process was not hard it rinsed out without a problem or residue. This clearly seemed impossible but it was a nice wash, clean fragrance that was not overpowering. My hair felt clean and not oily. Don't let the first feel fool you it really does nourish your hair.

This full-size free bottle will last quite a while and the price is well worth it. I know there is a vast amount of new products out this summer, but this is one of two that I found to have made a difference. If your hair is drying from the pool, or sun exposure I would highly suggest giving this a try you will be amazed at the results.

The texture is the same as most conditioners although not greasy feeling. It massages into the hair well and does not leave a heavy residue. My hair felt smooth and silky with plenty of bounce. It took away the flyaway hair that irritates me during the summer months. My hair usually feels weighed down and I end up in a pony tail that was not the case with this product. There are very few hair products that I enjoy using and this is one of two conditioners that leave my hair nice.
An extra plus for me on a personal note is the consistency of the L'Oreal Paris products is whichever line you are using the entire set has the same smell without variation into something else. They are all a very clean scent that does not overpower any fragrance you wear. A little of the product goes a long way, rinses out without any problem no after wash greasy feeling. I allow my hair to air dry and my daughter used a hair dryer and there is no difference between the two except I still think my hair is healthier. I most definitely recommend this trio of products for a nice head of healthy hair.

Sharing with others is what is it all about with the #crowdtaplovers 

 This is my honest unbiased opinion after using this product for a week.

I have been waking up to Folgers coffee for as long as I can remember. Not to mention there is not a blend I have not tried and enjoyed except maybe the half caf sorry guys that is just not my cup of coffee. Then they came out with Simply Smooth, awesome on your tummy.

Now COFFEEHOUSE blends, and I am not ashamed to say I will be replacing two well-named brands with this blend. I can froth up some skim milk, add my COFFEEHOUSE blend and pour a couple tablespoons into a huge mug of delicious coffee.
