My New Eco-Conscius Toothbrush from RADIUS -CLOSED-

Friday, March 26, 2010

I'm curious like a cat, so when I stumbled upon Radius website I was intrigued by the toothbrush selection that they offer at their website. They are not your ordinary toothbrushes, I tell you. Radius offer a revolutionary toothbrush design that makes brushing teeth fun, easier and more beneficial. Not to mention that it is eco-conscious too! Radius is a leader in natural products industry in personal care and renowned for its combination of innovative designs, premium materials, and eco-conscious manufacturing. They are also the first to accommodate both right-hand and left-hand toothbrush!! The distinctive wide surface area head design on Radius toothbrushes makes teeth more cleaner and makes it easy on the gums, putting less pressure to it - one of the biggest problem in brushing teeth.

The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends replacing your toothbrush every 3 or 4 months or when bristles are frayed. And this is where Radius toothbrushes stand out. Radius toothbrushes have up to 300% more bristles than usual toothbrush and a much more effective wide oval head that's designed to fit comfortably in any mouth. On average, Radius toothbrushes last 3 times longer than any other brands. And this means good news for your wallet ^o^


I was sent a pack of assorted toothbrushes from Radius to review. I was very excited to try it because I have gone from usual toothbrush to super-soft toothbrush to those battery-powered one but still no brand has satisfied me. The first time I used my new green Original Radius toothbrush I feel my teeth has never been so clean before! But before i get to that, first I'd like to let you know what I received from Radius:


This is (from left to right) the Original and the Scuba. Noticed why the right one has different head angle? Well, because it was for the left-handed! I'm a right handed but if I were a left-handed I would probably scream over this Scuba left-hand toothbrush because it's just so cool ^o^
The Scuba is available in right or left handed, it's also available in many colors. With it's non-slip rubber handle Scuba has a flexible bend-able Neck! Designed for harder brushers, the SCUBA flexes to reduce overall pressure on gums and teeth.

I was also sent baby and kids toothbrushes that include: Pure Baby that was designed for 6-18 months old baby, Totz for 18+ months old and Kidz for 6+ years.

What I love is each product has a different softness level of the bristles so they really meet the needs of each age level. Pure Baby has premium ultra soft bristles while the Totz has premium extra-soft bristles and the Kidz has very soft bristles. The Pure Baby is BPA Free and Dye Free so it's safe for your baby. It has a tapered handle for total control, with corner-less head and cushioned brushing which will makes it comfortable in your baby's mouth.
The Totz is also BPA Free and it's FDA Approved. It also has tapered handle but with smooth oval head to make it pressure-less brushing.
The Kidz has higher bristle count and larger surface area, it also has big ergonomic handle that makes it easier for kids to hold on to their toothbrush and it makes brushing more comfortable and less painful too. The asymmetric design automatically incline the bristles at 45 degree angle toward the gum-line which is recommended by dentists.

And now to the Original toothbrush that I have been using for the past 2 weeks.



Like most of Radius toothbrushes, this Original one also has a tilted (45 degree to gum line) head which is recommended by dentists. The Original has 6500 nylon bristles with a very high tuft count to help removes plaque more effectively. The Wide oval head distributes pressure, protects and massages sensitive gum tissue. And although it looked like plastic but it's actually made from trees which are processed from sustainable yield forests into 100% renewable resource plastic! Isn't that just fabulous to hear? I love using green products to help save our environment.

See the difference of the head compared to ordinary toothbrush? That's because Radius is not just a toothbrush it's a mouth brush! :)
I admit, at first it was kinda weird and uncomfortable brushing my teeth with Radius for the first time, because the head is so wide and I'm not used to it at all. But when I finished brushing my teeth I feel like my teeth are cleaned thoroughly and my mouth feels so refreshed. On my 2nd time using it I don't feel uncomfortable anymore, because it's actually fun! I found myself brushing my teeth longer than usual which is a good thing because ADA recommends brushing your teeth for 2 minutes while I usually just brush my teeth for around a minute. But now with Radius I hope I qualify ADA recommendation ;)

I love the soft yet very thin bristles and it does increase softness and efficacy of brushing with 65% more bristle tufts than ordinary toothbrush. And the large handle prevents excess pressure due to over-gripping the toothbrush handle like I used to with my old toothbrush.

Overall, I love using Radius and if it's ADA and dentists recommended than I also recommend it to you, you will feel a new experience in toothbrushing and you might never want to change toothbrushes again :)
All Radius toothbrushes are packaged in a 100% recyclable card printed with vegetable inks.
Gotta love that!



WIN! WIN! WIN!
Radius has kindly offer one lucky reader a package of The Original toothbrush, A Source Toothbrush and a travel case!
The Source toothbrush is another Radius product which has replaceable heads. The
handles are molded from recycled US Dollar bills / Recycled Flax or Recycled Wood.

My first ever family item: a personalized notepad from Mommy Pads and More. -CLOSED-

Thursday, March 25, 2010

Mommy Pads and more is one company that you should consider when looking for unique personalized items for your office or home. Run by a fabulous Susie Chew, Mommy Pads and more is all about fun, stylish girlie goods. They specializes in pads and stamps. Especially note pads, they have lots of 'em. I mean really cute note pads.

Pads are important in a household. You need it to jot down important notes, make your to-do list, or if you need to leave a message or to write notes to teachers, tutors, baby-sitters, etc. I always need notepads and use it everyday. Later if i move to my own apartment I would put a pad in the living room in a side table in front of the TV :)

I have an opportunity to review one of the pads offered at mommy Pads and More, I chose one of the family pads in "The Hanson family pad" style with a matching ribbon bow.

Actually it was kinda hard to choose at first because Susie offer many selections of pads to choose from; she got mommy pads, teacher pads, family pads, kid pads even pet pads, etc! I just couldn't make up my mind. But then I got my hubby to help choose for me. I definitely wants something with a ribbon and he likes The Hanson family design, so we're settled ^__^
And then all we have to do is fill the personal info form in the website which where you'll provide info on what name you want to be printed on the pad or either you want a custom color. You can also choose from the designs available whether you want bows or not. After you make your selections then Susie will send you a proof before printing and shipping it to you so you'll get a view of what it would look like, and if you want to change something to it before the printing process begun. She will print it only after you agreed with the proof. That's part of her great Customer Service.

And here is my family pad! Actually, being married for about 2 years this is our first personalized "family" item that we ever had, so me and hubby were really excited when we first saw both our names and our family name in the pad!! Thank you so much Susie, this is amazing!


The family pad I received is so pretty! Every pads come in 50 sheets. The letters are printed with beautiful colors, we love the fonts too! And the paper is not like those cheap thin papers you found on cheap notepads, it's made with 24 lb paper so it's thick enough. We love the size of the pad too. It's perfect to be put in our side table. It measure 5.5" by 8.5" with a cute ribbon bow attached at the top. Don't worry, the ribbon bow doesn't make it hard to tear off the pages if we need to because the paper is perforated just below the bow for easy tear off. Brilliant!
And I love the big ribbon bow too of course! The color really match the font colors, tres chic! Love it! Love it! Love it!



It's really nice to have something personalized in your house that you can use everyday. It makes it feels special. I already have several family members and colleagues asking about where I got it and I proudly says "Mommy Pads and More" ! :D

So whether you're a mom, a working gal, a teacher, a student or simply a wife then you need a notepad. Wait, not just a notepad but "Mommy Pads and More" cute personalized notepads! Great for gifts too! Here is some of other cute design that you can personalize on their website. Below is a family pad and a single name pad.


And Susie also offer unique yet very useful pads such as the Babysitter pad and the Thank You pad below. No need to write important children notes to babysitter on a scrap paper again. And tracking your thank you's list is much easier now. Find other unique pads on Mommy Pads and More website.


Also check out their stamps selection. It can be personalized too. And many design to choose from. For example, if you run your own business then you can order a stamp like these:


Or maybe you need a "return address" stamps? Here are some cute options from the wide stamps selections in Mommy Pads and More website. You could also find other stamps for children, teacher, wedding, etc..


The pads with ribbon bows cost $14.99 while the one without bows is $10.99. Stamps are $31.99.


SWEET DEALS:
Get yourself a 15% OFF with code "MOMMY". Enter the code at checkout and your total will be deducted. Offer valid for 6 months from now!



WIN! WIN! WIN!

Sweet smelling "SWEETLY YOU" (review)

Tuesday, March 23, 2010


Great Gift for: all the lovely ladies in your life.


I am always in need of a sweet smelling body lotion. Well, who doesn't, right? ;) But not all body lotions are the same. And most importantly, not all body lotion passed my "test". Not only it must smells good but it also has to be hydrating and moisturizing. The texture must not be sticky and the scent has to linger for at least a few hours too. And not many body lotion I've tried ever passed my list. But it all changed when a package came from Sweetly You.





They sent me a package of one 4oz Body Lotion in New Romance and a 3.5oz original Jelly Belly in Very Cherry. I like the unique idea of combining a sweet smelling body care product and a sweet snack, I think it would make a very nice gift parcel to someone you love.

Sweetly You offer bath and body products with over 50 delightful fragrances. Their price is affordable with a low flat rate shipping and they offer gift packages as well as individual products.

Back to the body lotion, after using it for more than a week I finally decided that the body lotion passed my "ultimate body lotion test". This premium body lotion smells wonderful, the texture is not sticky at all, it absorbs quickly to the skin, it really hydrates and moisturize my skin and what I love most about it is the sweet candy-like smell is very long-lasting! I could still smell the sweet wonderful scent for hours and hours, I practically find myself sniffing my own skin every few hours because I love how my skin smells ^o^. Caution: This could cause you falling in love with yourself ;p



The Jelly Belly they sent me is a very nice addition, of course it doesn't last as long as the lotion because me and hubby love the cherry flavor so much we practically eating it out of the bag til the bottom of it ^o^

There are a lot of other packages to choose from so it's an easy way if you wants to send gifts to your loved ones, you can customize the scents of your choice or the jelly belly flavor that you like. Or you can buy the products individually if you want. They have bath and body care products from Bath Salts, Moisturizing Bubble Bath, Spray Lotion, Sugar Scrub, Butter Cream, Bath Butter and Perfume with many scents to choose: from Blushing Rose, Bubble Gum, Caramel Apple, Chocolate Mint, Cotton Blossom, Gardenia Lily, Juicy Cantaloupe, Pomegranate, and many other scents!



Sweetly You also offer perfumes in atomizer, travel size container or in a bottle. And I love their perfume bottles! It's a classic style perfume bottles which looks vintage and perfect for gift! I'm telling you, the bottled perfume will look magnificent in your dresser:


So, for a quality bath and body products that's perfect for gift-giving head on over to Sweetly You. From products price as low as $3.16 to a package for as low as $5.99 this is the shop that will make everyone smile.

Natural Bath & Beauty products for Girls and the young at hearts - CLOSED

Wednesday, March 17, 2010


Great Gift for : Teenage girl or tweens.


I'm like a cat. I'm not really fond of water ;p I don't like spending a lot of time in the bathroom. But that was before I fall in love with natural soaps ^o^ As you may already know by now I love all natural soaps, I don't use typical dept store soaps anymore because I know they contain chemicals. And I've been using all natural soaps ever since, especially when it's organic.

But all the natural soaps I have tried are all solid soaps and that's how I know it. But then I surprised myself when I stumbled upon SparkleHearts. SparkleHearts offer liquid natural soap = Body Wash! But that's not all that they offer, SparkleHearts also have all natural hair care line such as Shampoo, Conditioner and Hair Detangler, and Body lotion too. All are made from natural ingredients.

Although SparkleHearts are a natural bath and beauty products for girls but I think all the young-at-hearts women would love it too. I mean, who doesn't love pink? ^o^
So when I have the opportunity to try one of SparkleHearts product I immediately chose the Body Wash which called SparkleHearts Bubbling Blooms Body Wash.
The shipping is quite fast and when it came I just couldn't wait to try it. It came with a fun colorful brochure which is a very interesting brochure to read and looked at.
The bottle itself is really cute and girly, all tweens and teenage girls would go gaga over this bottle :) I love it too, I proudly put it in my bathroom like a showcase ^o^

I love that the bottle use a dispenser which makes it easy for bath time so you don't have to open a cap and squeeze. This would also great for tweens or little girl so they don't end up messing the bathroom floor by accidentally squeezing too much liquid soap, with a pump bottle everyhting is just easier for everybody.
And have I mention that I love the smell too!? It smells sweet and not overwhelming. In my experience it leaves a little bit of residue though so you have to wash really thoroughly to really wash it away but that's not a problem for me. In fact, I have been spending more time in my bath than I used to now. And that's because I love spending time showering with the Bubbling Blooms Body Wash :) I also love that it doesn't make my skin dry after shower and it seems to really does its job in moisturizing my skin.

SparkleHearts website is really fun too, with all those cheerful pinky color that makes you want to explore it. It's really a fun website and products for teens and adults alike.

SparkleHearts are 99.6% natural and made from organic ingredients. It's made with no artificial colors, environmentally friendly, NEVER tested on animals and rocking some serious style in 100% recycled packaging. LOVE IT!

All SparkleHearts products are also Paraben, Phtalate, Sodium Lauryl and Sulfate FREE. ALWAYS.


Bubbling Blooms Body Wash bathes your body in moisturizing bubbles that smells as sweet as they feel. The main ingredients are Evening Primrose which pampers our skin and Almond Protein which moisturize our skin and protect it from dryness. It also contain natural coconut and sugar as our bubble buddies. For $12.49 this all natural body wash is a must-try!

So, if you have a little girl or teenage girl then go to SparkleHearts website and you'll know why teens would love it. And if you're young at heart or if you like anything with a lot of pink or bright fun and colorful natural body care then SparkleHearts is for you too :)

The Joy Of Soap - CLOSED -

Tuesday, March 9, 2010

I received a package the other day. And it contains one of my favorite indulgence ;p
Natural Soaps !!
Yippie, I've been waiting for this package to arrived because I couldn't wait to try the all natural soaps from The Joy Of Soap!

I love natural soaps! It's one of my weakness ^o^
I have been using natural soaps for almost a year now and I don't ever wanna go back to usual soaps. Mostly because I want to reduce chemical exposure to my skin, we all know that the usual over the counter soaps are packed with chemical ingredients that could cause harms to our skin without we even realized it, and that's why I turned to natural soaps. Beside the scent of natural soaps are more pleasant to inhale than those chemically infused soaps, I also love the fact that natural soaps contain minimal to zero chemical ingredients so it's definitely more safe and healthy to our skin.

The Joy Of Soap is a company that offer natural soap that is hand crafted, hand cut and hand wrapped in small batches, using certified organic oils, therapeutic grade essential oils and ingredients that are gentle on our skin. Their smaller size soap is perfect for work or pleasure trip enabling us to nurture our skin while away from home and be conscious of the environment by eliminating the need to dispose of hotel soaps and packaging.


The soap came in it's individual 100% cotton muslin bags so it's easy to bring along when you're traveling. Every soaps from The Joy Of Soap has moisturizing effect. Every soaps contain organic oil, coconut and palm oil plus castor oil mixed with therapeutic grade essential oils and exfoliant which is all a good thing to our skin.

As I told you earlier, I love the scent of natural soaps. It smells so natural and not fake. The Joy Of Soaps has several scent option to choose from, all of which are very intriguing to try. However I finally made my choice, I chose 3 different scents to try:
Feeling Frisky
Peppermint Passion
Manly Man


Out of all three my most favorite scent is Peppermint Passion.
Peppermint Passion is a mix of peppermint and spearmint. Peppermint energizes, stimulates and restore the senses while spearmint invigorates, exfoliates and refreshes.
I love this soap. It smells so wonderful and very invigorating. I go to my in law's house every weekend so I left this soap in my bathroom there. I closed the bathroom door just before we went home that week and the next week when I go there again and open the bathroom door the bathroom inside smell so wonderful! It's all because the Peppermint Passion soap!

Feeling Frisky is a clever mixture of tangerine, grapefruit and lime with calendula flower petals that smells like you're just came out of a spa. Grapefruit has a cleansing and toning effect while tangerine helps to increase circulation to the skin, and calendula is known to promote healthy, younger looking skin.
I am currently using this soap now and it has made me wanting more. My skin is soft and clean. Everybody in the family seems to love it too.

Manly Man has a light scent of sweet orange that brings happiness to the mind. It also contain tea tree oil that acts as astringent and a touch of pumice to smooth out rough edges of skin.
Although it has a manly name it's actually unisex. Me and hubby love this soap. He seems to take a longer time in the bathroom now ;p And I love the pumice that could act as scrubs to my skin.




Overall, we're really satisfied with all the soaps. The natural oils and essence in the soaps really make our skin soft and smooth, moisturized and clean. The scents are all wonderful and very pleasant so it could act as aromatherapy too. I like sniffing on the soaps ^o^

The Joy Of Soap is proud of their Green Practices, from how they purchase their ingredients, to the wrapping and shipping materials they used and in the way they operate their business. Even their head office is doing some green living too! I love featuring companies like this.
They are also working on a line of natural bath and skin care products and I can't wait to see what they came up with.
