Hayvenhurst Stainless Steel Knife

TACTICAL FOLDING POCKET KNIFE

~ What ~
With an aluminum handle that has Trac Tec rubber patches and a black oxide carbon stainless steel blade, this pocket knife comes with a spring-assist opening, bottle opener, belt cutter, glass breaker, and pocket clip. Due to its material, it is rust-proof and durable. It comes in a gift box, ready for giving.

~ Why ~
A sharp, reliable knife is a must for outdoor camping, hiking, and hunting. I like the weight and feel of this knife and that it can be clipped to a pocket or belt loop. Having the spring-loaded opening makes it easy to grab and use. It is well-priced for what it does.

~ Why Not ~
Those who do not use knives outdoors may not need this handy tool, but it could be stored in a vehicle to cut a belt, break a window, or use in self-defense. Some may not like that it is hard to reclose after opening.

~ Wish ~
It would be thoughtful to add instructions on how to properly close the sharp knife without the possibility of cutting oneself.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a compact, foldable tactical knife, this is an excellent choice.

Kidsciety Numbers & Alphabets Flash Cards

LEARNING LETTERS & NUMBERS SET

~ What ~
Made of colorful non-toxic, BPA-free ABS plastic and cardboard, this educational set contains over 75 pieces to help children learn the alphabet and numbers. It includes 10 number flashcards, 26 alphabet flashcards, 37 plastic blocks of letters and numbers, and 1 24-piece dinosaur puzzle. Geared for ages 3 years and older, all items arrive in a small clear backpack, ready for using or giving.

~ Why ~
Our 3-year-old granddaughter is learning her letters and numbers, so this is a fun way to match a letter or number to a corresponding card. I like that the cards are easy to hold and have an inlay where the matching plastic block can be placed. I appreciate the sturdiness of the cards and that the letters and numbers are made of durable plastic. Adding the puzzle and see-through backpack with a front zipper pocket and two shoulder straps are added bonuses.

~ Why Not ~
Those who have kids who do not like educational toys may not approve of this product, but it can help with recognizing numbers, counting, and reading. Some may wish the plastic blocks were larger, but they are a decent size. The backpack is on the small size, but it holds all the cards, blocks, and puzzle nicely.

~ Wish ~
It would be nice if the blocks had magnets embedded in the back of them so they could be placed on a refrigerator or metal siding. Making the shoulder straps adjustable would help.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a way to improve your child’s reading and math skills, this is a perfect starter kit for a young one.

ReVIVOL-XR Sitz Bath Salts

GO AWAY HEMORRHOIDS!

~ What ~
Made of a proprietary blend of natural ingredients, this 15.75-ounce bag of sitz bath salts is designed to support anorectal wellness and hemorrhoid issues. With the first 5 ingredients of Epson Salt, Dead Sea Salt, Organic Coconut Oil, Baking Soda, and Witch Hazel, it also contains gotu kola, turmeric, yarrow, chamomile, frankincense, nettle leaf, horse chestnut, ginger, lavender, tea tree, calendula, and lemon oils. Instructions state to add 2 tablespoons to a sits bath or 8 tablespoons to a bathtub. It arrives in a resealable plastic pouch, and it is labeled EXP 08/07/24.

~ Why ~
I will admit it – I get hemorrhoids from time to time, and they can be quite painful. Sitting in a warm bath with soothing ingredients not only calms the swelling down but relieves the pain. I love how chockful this special formula is with over 20 natural and organic ingredients. Another plus is that it is made in the USA.

~ Why Not ~
Those who do not have hemorrhoids will have no need for this product. Others may prefer creams, but sometimes they are harder to apply to the tender area compared to sitting in a soothing bath of warm water. Those with chronic hemorrhoids may consider getting medical care instead.

~ Wish ~
I wonder if this company makes other high-quality bath products with so many natural ingredients as they may also be helpful for aches and pains.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a soothing way to reduce that pesky hemorrhoid, this may be the answer.

Thanks to ReVIVOL-XR for this complimentary product that I am not obligated to review.

Roven Superbloom Face Serum

BOUNCE BAK RADIANCE SERUM

~ What ~
This 0.5-ounce glass jar contains a thick cloudy liquid that can be put daily on the face to reduce visible signs of aging. Coming with a bulb-dripper, it can be applied daily to the face and neck with positive results after 4 weeks. With the first 5 ingredients being water, caprylic capric triglyceride, hydroxyethylcellulose, bakuchiol, and prunus armeniaca (apricot) kernel oil, it also contains argan, rosemary, and rosehip oils. It arrives in a box, ready for giving or using.

~ Why ~
Since I am in my mid-sixties, when I tried this serum, I noticed immediately how it quickly absorbed into my skin, leaving it softer and more pliable. I like that it is light yet thick, fragranced with essential oils and other plant-derived ingredients. I appreciate it contains no parabens, phthalates, sulfates, silicones, or synthetic fragrances.

~ Why Not ~
If you do not want to take care of your aging skin, you will not be interested in this product. If you think it will be oily or greasy, it was not, nor does it soil any clothing.

~ Wish ~
I wish the bottle were transparent so I could see the content inside to know when it is time to repurchase.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a substitute to retinol when trying to keep down those wrinkles, this one with bakuchiol would be an ideal option.

Kidsciety Pretend Play Food

CHILDREN’S TOY KITCHEN ACCESSORIES SET

~ What ~
Made of colorful non-toxic, BPA-free ABS plastic, this toy set contains 97 pieces with a food and kitchen theme. With not only fake canned food, fluids, and condiments, the collection also has prepared foods, fruits, vegetables, serving utensils, and money. Geared for ages 3 years and older, all items arrive in a gift box with a reusable shopping bag, ready for using or giving.

~ Why ~
Our 3-year-old granddaughter loves to play kitchen and is always “making” us something to eat. The coolest part of this set is that some of its pieces such as the pizza, corn on the cob, hard-boiled egg, lobster, hot dog, and more can be separated and put back together using Velcro strips. Adding paper money and coins make it more educational too.

~ Why Not ~
Those who have kids who do not like to pretend they are making food or in the kitchen or a restaurant will have no interest in this set. Others may not like that some of the foods come apart, yet that is what makes them so unique. I have never heard of avocado milk.

~ Wish ~
I wish plates, cups, and silverware came in the set, but it is not a deal breaker.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a way to expand a young one’s imagination through pretend playing with food, this is a great option.

Elehere Snowflake Napkin Rings

6 RHINESTONE SNOWFLAKE NAPKIN HOLDERS

~ What ~
Made of metal with clear rhinestones and a silver finish, this set of 6 napkin rings has a snowflake design that can be used for Christmas or the wintertime season. Available in 4, 6, 8, or 12 pieces in the set, each one can hold a standard cloth napkin; the snowflake top measures 2-inches in diameter, and the o-ring is approximately 1.5-inches in diameter. They arrive individually wrapped in cellophane in a gift box, ready for using or giving.

~ Why ~
With the Christmas holidays around the corner, these make a lovely, sparkly addition to an elegant dinner table setting. I like that the snowflake is large with a cluster of rhinestones. Napkins are easy to look through the ring and smooth out for a display. Being made of metal, they are strong and sturdy.

~ Why Not ~
Those who do not celebrate the holiday or winter with classy napkin rings will have no use for this product. If one does not like the snowflake design, there are other options available. If 6 is not enough, other quantities are offered.

~ Wish ~
There is nothing I would change about this product.

~ Want ~
If you want to class-up your dining room table this Christmas with a snowflake theme, this is a perfect choice.

Peach Not Plastic Healthy Strength Shampoo Bar

PLASTIC-FREE HEALTHY HAIR SHAMPOO

~ What ~
This small vegan 3-ounce bar of soap improves damaged or split-proned hair without having to use a plastic container. Able to reuse as many hair washings as a 17-ounce bottle of shampoo, it cleans and improves hair elasticity as it lathers. Using coconut oil and shea butter, its first five ingredients are sodium cocoyl isethionate, sodium lauryl sulfoacetate, cocadimopropryl hydroxysultaine, stearic acid, and cocos nucifera. It has nice honeydew melon scent and contains no SLES, SLES, parabens, phthalates, silicones, or synthetic colorants. Instructions on the box recommend rubbing the wet bar over the crown of the head, using the fingers to work it into a lather, and rinse thoroughly.

~ Why ~
With hair that is not chemically treated or colored, I like to use plant and flower-based shampoos. In using this, I found the soft smell pleasant but not obnoxious so it could be used on men’s hair. The soap bar contains shea butter, which always leaves my hair silky, soft, and shiny. I like how it is made to improve damaged hair. The bar would be ideal for travel use, especially if camping, hiking, or being in the outdoors for days.

~ Why Not ~
Some may not like the fruity scent as it seems catered to women more than men, but it does not linger long afterward. Others may prefer bottled shampoos, but this one is more environmentally-conscious.

~ Wish ~
It would be great if it came in a reusable container to use when traveling.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a nice-smelling, plastic-free shampoo designed to strengthen damaged hair, this is a great choice, especially if you want to use something eco-friendly.

Thanks to Peach Not Plastic for this complimentary sample that I am freely evaluating.

Corinthian Design Montauk Lighthouse Puzzle

100-PIECE PUZZLE OF LIGHTHOUSE IN NEW YORK

~ What ~
Made of three-layer grey board with gloss lamination, this set contains a 1000-piece puzzle of the iconic lighthouse in Montauk, New York. Recommended for ages eight years and older, it is 27 by 20 inches when completely assembled. It arrives in a sturdy box with an approximately 18 by 24 inch folded matching poster.

~ Why ~
With the holidays around the corner, having a complex puzzle is ideal for when our out-of-state grandkids visit. I love the vibrant colors of the sky and ocean in this picture of a lighthouse. Each piece appears to be cleanly cut with a shiny surface. There are plenty of different color patterns to make the puzzle challenging yet fun to put together. Adding the matching poster is a nice bonus.

~ Why Not ~
Some people (like my husband) do not like doing puzzles, yet I find them relaxing and mindless. The pieces are on the small side so younger children may get frustrated putting them together. If one does not like the scene, there are 6 other design options available.

~ Wish ~
It would be thoughtful if a mat was included for storing purposes.

~ Want ~
If you or your family enjoy putting puzzles together, this one will make a stunning and beautiful creation when finished.

Infinit Meta IPhone Car Charger

iPHONE CAR CHARGER CIGARETTE ADAPTER

~ What ~
This dual port 32W fast car charger with a long coiled cable not only can be used with most Apple devices including iPhones, iPods, and iPads, but it also has a USB port for other electronics. By plugging the approximately 3.5 by 1.5-inch unit into the vehicle’s cigarette lighter adapter and plugging an electronic device into it, it charges quickly. It arrives in a box with instructions, ready for giving.

~ Why ~
There are several things about this product that make it special: it is MFI certified, has an upgraded C94 terminal, and comes with an extra long, coiled 6.56 cable with a Lightning connector. In addition to charging an Apple product, there is a built-in USB interface for Samsung, Google, and other products. I like that this one offers rapid charging while using it in a car. It was easy to plug into my car’s lighter and watch it charge my iPad and Samsung Galaxy simultaneously, showing a green light button. I appreciate how it can adapt to all types of vehicles, as long as they have cigarette lighters.

~ Why Not ~
Those who only charge their electronics in their houses or offices may not be in their car long enough to charge their phones, but this is a handy device to have during an emergency. Some may think the cord is too long, but it is ideal for those who talk on the phone in their car (which is illegal while driving in some states) while charging it. Newer cars may not have cigarette lighters but a 12v auxiliary power outlet will suffice.

~ Wish ~
It would be cool if it was available in bright, neon colors so easy to spot.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a dual charger with a long cord for your Apple electronics while you spend hours in your car, this is a great way to charge them. It would make a great “emergency equipment” gift for those who lose electricity and need to recharge phones using their vehicles.

Sentir Sensory Tiered Necklace

AROMATHERAPY DIFFUSER NECKLACE

~ What ~
Containing a tier of 5 clear round-cut stones encased by Japanese patented 14k gold plated steel on a chain, this pendant necklace includes a back area to add scented essential oils. The pendant is approximately 0.75 inches long and 0.20 inches wide. The adjustable 20-inch sterling silver necklace includes an extension and lobster clasp. The item arrives in a velvet snap pouch with paperwork in a gift box, ready for giving.

~ Why ~
Since I used to make and sell jewelry, I am always in search of pretty pieces that are unique and stand out. I love that one can add scents to this one and that the aroma can last up to 5 days. The 5 stacked rhinestones look classy and elegant. The necklace is hypoallergenic and waterproof so can be cleaned.

~ Why Not ~
Some may only prefer real diamonds, but these look nice. Others may not like that scents can be added, but it is optional and does not alter the jewelry design.

~ Wish ~
I wish the tier were a little longer in length, but it is not a deal breaker.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a way to wear a lingering scent throughout the day with a stunning piece of jewelry, this would be a great gift for yourself or a loved one.

Thanks to Sentir for this discounted product that I am under no obligation to review.
