When I was a teenager, I had acne and was self-conscience about the way I looked. I remember trying different types of cleansers, lotions, buff puff cleaning pads that exfoliated my skin, drugs perscribed by the dermatologist, and other things. Nothing much helped me back then and I’m so glad I finally grew out of it. In those days I would have loved to try the TAO Clean Aura Clean System Orbital Facial Brush & Cleaning Station and now that I’m an adult I was just as anxious to try it. Will the TAO Clean become part of my daily face cleaning regimen? Keep reading to find out.

Hardly a week goes by that I don’t see a review of a new model on some website, especially in what has ecumenically been called “The Gift-Giving Season.” /eye roll/ During this period, iClever just released a few new models, and I was sent the iClever IC-BTS06 Bluetooth Speaker in red and black to review.

Although I review a LOT of gadgets, I don’t end up using many of them once the review is done. Most of the time, the samples go up on a shelf until there’s no room left and I decide to do a purge which consists of taking bags of gadgets to work to give away to my friends. I’m glad I haven’t given away all the Flic wireless smart buttons that I reviewed the other day because I’ve found the perfect use for one of them. [click to continue…]

One of the most used review items I have is an iHome alarm clock. Not only do I use it for waking up and checking the time, but I also use it to charge my phone overnight. Just a few months ago, I picked up an Apple Watch and had been looking at charging stations when iHome came out with another alarm clock, the iPLWBT5 Bluetooth docking alarm clock with an Apple Watch charger built in. Since I loved my previous alarm clock, I had to give this a try!

Low iron levels in your blood can make you feel dizzy, fatigued, and lightheaded, not to mention causing a fast heart rate, shortness of breath and other unpleasant side effects. One way to increase your levels is to take an iron supplement. But if you aren’t a fan of adding more pills to your diet, you might want to consider the Lucky Iron Fish. It’s a cast iron fish that you can place in a pot of soup, water for tea, etc. and it will leach iron into the food to provide up to 75% of your daily recommended dose. The Lucky Iron Fish is vegan and vegetarian-friendly as no fish were harmed in the making of the Lucky Iron Fish 😉 B-Corp, the company who makes and sells the Lucky Iron Fish will donate one fish to a family in Cambodia, where half the population suffers from an iron deficiency. You can buy your own Lucky Fish for $25 from thegrommet.com

I tried the whole standing desk thing for awhile but it didn’t take too long for me to realize that I prefer parking my buns in a chair while I’m working. Since I do a LOT of working, I do a LOT of sitting, so I need a comfortable chair. When RapidX asked if I would be interested in reviewing one of their gaming and lifestyle chairs, I took one look at their cool race car designs and said yes. They sent me the Ferrino which I’ve been testing for a couple weeks. Let’s check it out.

Using my Mac Mini as my main computer, I sometimes wish I had extra USB ports and an easily accessible SD card slot since it’s tucked away behind the many other things I have on my desk. Luckily I had the chance to review the Satechi aluminum USB 3.0 hub and card reader, which adds some extra ports to my computer, so let’s take a look! [click to continue…]
