bestqool pro100 8

REVIEW – I’ve reviewed several red light therapy devices from a laser helmet that claimed to restore thinning hair (it didn’t for me) to an infrared wrap that claimed to help with sore joints (again, it didn’t really help me).

BITVAE 11

REVIEW – Just prior to the The Bitvae Water Flosser coming up for review my dentist told me to start water flossing. What timing!

merarch rower 03

REVIEW – I had a cheap rowing machine a few years ago that I really enjoyed – not so much for the product but just because I liked the workout. A few months into using it though, the elastic-based strap snapped while I was rowing, throwing me backward. It was unpleasant, to say the least.
