Knife Sharpener From Priority Chef Reviews.

I was so excited when this knife sharpener arrived. Every knife in my kitchen was, well worthless! Cutting into a tomato was just laughable. This 2 stage sharpener saved me hundreds of dollars by not having to replace my knives. I do not own "expensive" knives, but they did the job. I have picked up on my cooking skills in the last couple years and get frustrated when I cant cut food easily. Let me just say Priority Chef thought out the safety aspect of this sharpener as well as the ability to sharpen all knives. I cant believe how easy it is to use too, even I can SAFELY sharpen our knives now. They recommend every 6 months, that is a long time to cut things and not go dull. I received this product in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

Ava Shower Filter




This is a replacement filter for our shower. This is the only filter that I am aware of that takes out chlorine AND fluoride. Naturally occurring fluoride is ok. “Fluoride uptake in vascular walls was demonstrated in 361 sites of 54 (96 percent) patients, whereas calcification was observed in 317 sites of 49 (88 percent) patients.

Significant correlation between fluoride uptake and calcification was observed in most of the arterial walls, except in those of the abdominal aorta.


So far its great

Refresh Vox Box

Hello there............

Today I am reviewing my latest VoxBox called Refresh VoxBox by Influenster. I received these products complimentary for testing and reviewing purposes. These are my unbiased opinions.





I will be reviewing 6 items from the Refresh VoxBox today.....


Beanitos Chips:  



OK I have a mixed review on this product and what I mean by that is........ I did not enjoy them but my hubby did. To me the Restaurant Style chips lacked flavor and where very plain. Now maybe having some salsa might have livened them up a bit. Hubby enjoyed them and said they were pretty good.

As for the Nacho Cheese.....well lets just say the flavor was bad in my eyes but once again hubby really liked them. I thought they were very salty and the flavor was extra heavy. Sorry for the negative review but I just did not like them, I would say that you might want to try them for yourself to be the judge.

I would NOT recommend these.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Covergirl UltraSmooth Foundation:


I have to say that when I first looked at the color it looked rather dark, but once I tried it on it matched so perfectly to my skin tone. Also it really did smooth out my skin. I liked that it offered full coverage without that heavy makeup feel. It really did the job and I was impressed with it.

I WOULD recommend this product.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

L'Occitane Shea Butter Light Comforting Cream:



I have to say that when I first saw this cute little bottle I had to try it right away! This bottle is only .28 oz and it has 5% Shea Butter, I did notice that the bigger sizes were 20% Shea Butter. I used it on my very dry hands and I really liked how they felt. It really hydrates the skin without being greasy or heavy. I did feel I had to use it more often then some of my creams but maybe the 20% would fix that issue. 

I WOULD recommend this product.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Skinny Girl Tasty Nutrition Bars:





When I opened this package I noticed it had chocolate on the bottom and lightly drizzled lines of chocolate on top. The flavor I tried was Banana Oatmeal Dark Chocolate, now I am not a dark chocolate fan so of course it was not something that I really liked, but it had good flavor and does not have a huge list of ingredients. I would like to try some of their other flavors that I might like better. 

I WOULD recommend this product.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

DenTek Comfort Clean Floss Picks:


I showed these to the kids and they thought it was such a cool idea to have the floss on a stick.....LOL Hey I like anything that makes the kids do what they should do. I really like these because they are a little heavier floss them some of the others and they are flavored with mint, which adds a little freshness. 

I also received Fun Flossers, which are for kids. They have a cute handle on them so the kids can get a better grip. They also taste like fruit flavors so that really helps with the kids, they will floss more if it makes it fun. I have to admit that I like the kid ones! :-)

I WOULD recommend both products.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Listerine Freshburst Pocketpaks:



WOW these little things are very strong, which is a good thing in my eyes since the reason you use them is to quickly freshen your breath. I have used these in the past and was not pleased with them, but it seems they have improved these breath strips. Also another good thing about these, is if you have a stuffed nose they help with opening your nose right up. 

I WOULD recommend this product.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Well that is it for my reviews in the Refresh VoxBox and I hope some of the information  here might help you in picking some new products to try.

I like this alot. It is a tight fit but not in a bad way. It has velcro straps so you can adjust it to fit how you like i like to keep mine tight because it feels like it gives me extra support if it is tighter. It is water proof so if you sweat or get it wet you dont have to worry about it messing up. It is very well made and very durable. Even with the tight fit it bends with your knee without any problems. You can also use these while at the gym. These can be used even if you are not in any pain or have a problem as they are also good for shock support. Both the knee brace and ankle brace work amazing and are very well made. I was allowed to test these at a discount for my thoughts and i recommend them to anyone. Even if you dont need them now i would buy them and put them up. They are awesome and everyone needs this!

I loved that this french press came with a few extra items needed for brewing. Extra wire mesh filters, a measuring spoon/stirrer, and a bent spoon as well as a colorful brochure explaining the process. My only complaint was the brochure was a bit busy, lots of colors and with the text it was just really hard for me to read it, without my eyes feeling like they were dancing.


The coffee came out tasting fresh, smooth and bold. I was using a dark roast bean, and it worked wonderfully.

The coffee press from Kitchen Supreme is well made, looks great, easy to wash and is also dishwasher safe!
