YouCopia Crazy Susan 11″ Turntable

Susan 2EASILY ORGANIZES YOUR CUPBOARD

~ What ~
Made of white ABS plastic, this round 11-inch turntable with a gray-colored backstop is for storing spices, oils, or condiments in a kitchen cupboard. As a person touches the round base, the circular device slowing swivels around so one can view all contents inside. It arrives in a gift box ready for giving. Instructions are included.

~ Why ~Susan 1
I cannot stand my kitchen cupboard where I keep my spices as I always have to move them around or out of order to get to the one in the back of the cabinet. With this handy gadget, I can turn the lazy susan around and get the needed spice with no effort. It also could be used to hold makeup, lotions, or beauty aids in a bathroom. When my husband noticed I rearranged the spice shelf, he mentioned it looked more organized and easier to grab a jar.

~ Why Not ~
Those who do not have a lot of spices or condiments in their cupboards may not need or want this product. Others may wish it was larger in diameter.

~ Wish ~
I wish other color options were available to blend better inside a cabinet or shelf.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a simplified way to view all your spices or small condiments in a round rotating tray, this is the way to do it.

Thanks to YouCopia for this product that I am evaluating by choice.

Goodia Solar Mini Copper String Lights

Mini Lights 2MINI LED ON COPPER STRING LIGHTS

~ What ~
This 33-foot strand of 120 mini LED waterproof lights on a copper wire is for outdoor use and solar powered. Able to shine up to 16 hours after being fully charged by the sun’s rays for 6 to 8 hours, there are 2 operating modes of lighting. Its built-in battery will last over a year. Instructions and a ground spike are included.

~ Why ~Mini Lights 1
What I like most about this product is that it is solar-powered, so I do not have to think about turning it on and off daily or running any electrical wires. Another top feature that is that this wire is longer than most others. In testing them at night, I put them around our outdoor pond, and they were bright and illuminating on the flashing or solid lighting mode.

~ Why Not ~
Some may not like miniatuare lights as they are tiny. Others that live in the Pacific Northwest or where there is limited sun may not think they will light up long enough at night during the short sunny days.

~ Wish ~
With the lights being miniscule, I wish they had varied light sizes on the copper wire so they can be mixed and matched in decorating.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a strand of mini LED lights on a thin copper wire that are solar powered, this will make your decorations shine brightly.

Mora Traditionals Keffiyeh

Shemagh 1BOLD STATEMENT SHEMAGH

~ What ~
Made of 100% Cotton, this authentic keffiyeh with seamed edges measures 47 inches square. Available in 11 designs, it usually has colored designs of white, tan, brown, and black with 4-inch ball tassels on the corners and ¾ inch ties on the edges. It is recommended to be hand washed in cold water and air dried or dry cleaned.

~ Why ~Shemagh 2
I like the over-sized largeness of this one because it can be wrapped around the neck to keep warm. Its soft material is not too thick or see-through. Its purpose is for military solidarity for Palestine, but males and females may wear it as a decorative garment. I like that tying and care instructions are included.

~ Why Not ~
Some may not want to wear a keffiyeh that promotes Palestine solidarity, but I was assured it can be used to accent clothing and has no propaganda icons on it. Others may insist it is to be worn by men only, but I asked and was told women could wear it too. I noticed the fabric has the potential to snag, and some of the decorative design stitching is a little loose.

~ Wish ~
I wish the online site mentioned it is not only to promote Palestine and women can wear it too.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for an oversized authentic shemagh, this may be a good purchase.

Thanks to Mora for this discounted item that I am evaluating by choice.

Orilife Colorful Bra Set

Bright Bras 1BRIGHT, COMFY SPORTS BRAS

~ What ~
Made of 96% nylon and 4% spandex, this set includes three workout bras that have no adjustable straps, snaps, hooks, or underwires. Coming in six sizes from Small to XXXL, their colors are in aqua blue, hot pink, and purple. With removable breast pads, 1,5-inch shoulder straps, and 1.75-inch bands around their bottoms, they are machine washable and can be put in the dryer.

~ Why ~Bright Bras 2
I cannot stand underwire, push-up bras and like to be comfortable when I am at the gym, working in the yard, or wearing casual clothing. These bras are ideal by offering ample support of the breasts due to the stretchy, breathable fabric and wide straps. I found the Large fit nicely on my Size 8 frame. The double stitching has no loose threads. The colors are bright and cheerful so their straps could be shown on purpose.

~ Why Not
Some women may not like having to put a bra on over the head since there are not hooks or latches. Others may wish the designs were razorback so give more shoulder movement for working out, but those types usually show near the neckline. Some may not like the thickness of the insert pads, but they are removable.

~ Wish ~
Since they come only in the three solid colors, it would be nice if floral, polka dot, or stripes could be included.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a pack of three comfy, stretchy, and bright bras that make you feel secure, these are a must. Be sure to check the sizing as I ordered one size up and they fit perfectly.

I ordered these at their online price at the time and am evaluating them by choice.

Cannara Daily Anti-Aging Face Cream

Hemp 1CREAMY NATURAL HEMP FACE MOISTURIZER

~ What ~
Made from 100% natural hemp seed oil, this 1.7-ounce jar of face cream is to keep wrinkles at bay, dry skin moist, and leave skin looking healthier and younger. Coming in a small glass jar, the thick cream-colored lotion can be applied to a clean face twice a day. The first five ingredients are water, aloe barbadensis leaf juice, cannabis sativa seed oil, vitis vinifera seed oil, and squalane. Instructions are printed on the included box.

~ Why ~ Hemp 2
Now that I am in my late fifties, my skin is aging quickly. Born and raised in Southern California, needless to say, I have wrinkled, dry skin. I like that the cream is soft and blends into my skin quickly and easily. Another nice feature is it contains all natural products with no chemical additives. The smell has an earthy, almost cinnamon tint to it.

~ Why Not ~
If you do not ritualistically apply moisturizers to your face, you may not want to consider this product, but it is supposed to reduce wrinkles. Those who are against anything that contains any part of a marijuana plant may avoid it. Some may wish it included a sunscreen additive.

~ Wish ~
I wish online stated the quantity amount, how much to use, application, and ingredients for the picky buyer. I was skeptical about this product, but I was so impressed by its absorption, nice scent, and moisturizing feeling on my skin. It would be helpful if consumers know how much of the cannabis is absorbed into the skin or if it gets into the bloodstream.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a unique way to add moisture to your face while treating aging and wrinkles, this one that contains cannabis may be an excellent idea. I will update my review if I notice any more pros or cons to the product.

Thanks to Cannara for this discounted product that I am evaluating by choice.

Goodia Solar Spike String Lights

Stick Lights 2SOLAR STICK STRING LIGHTS

~ What ~
This 72.5-foot strand of 200 LED waterproof lights that have sections of 1-inch stick lights every 4 inches is for outdoor or indoor use and solar powered. Able to shine up to 16 hours after being fully charged by the sun’s rays for 6 to 8 hours, there are 2 operating modes of lighting. Its built-in battery will last over a year. Instructions and a ground spike are included.

~ Why ~Stick Lights 1
What I like most about this product is that it is solar-powered, so I do not have to think about turning it on and off daily or running any electrical wires. Another top feature that is different than other solar lights on the market is the individual stick lights are thicker and more obvious than others. In testing them at night, I found them to be bright and illuminating on the flashing or solid lighting mode.

~ Why Not ~
Some may not like the sticks being either too long or short. Others that live in the Pacific Northwest or where there is limited sun may not think they will light up long enough at night during the short sunny days.

~ Wish ~
With each stick being approximately 1 inch long, it would be nice if other size lights could be available that are smaller and larger than these so they can be mixed and matched in decorating.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a long strand of stick string lights that are solar powered, this will make your decorations shine brightly.

Shizan Anti-Aging Day Cream

Shizan 1LUXURIOUS FACE MOISTURIZER

~ What ~
This 1.7 ounce of a thick white cream can be applied daily on a clean face or neck to lessen wrinkles, fine lines, and aging. Coming in a plastic 4.5-inch tall bottle with pumper and lid, it is easy to use. The first four ingredients are water, sunflower seed oil, sorbitan oleate, and hydrogenated stearyl olive oil esters. Also added are honeysuckle, argan, olive, jojoba, pomegranate, grape, and citron oils. Directions are on the box and jar.

~ Why ~
Now that I am in my late fifties, my skin is aging quickly. Born and raised in Southern California, I have all three types of skin cancers so try only to use natural products on my face, so I like that this one contains 95% organic water-binding ingredients. I appreciate that concoction includes a blend of cold-pressed oils that do not leave my skin greasy or slippery. The smell has a floral fragrance, and it absorbs into the skin quickly.

~ Why Not ~Shizan 2

If you do not ritualistically apply moisturizers to your face, you may not want to consider this product, but it does help with consistent use to keep those wrinkles at bay. Those who already have oily skin may not want to add more oil-based products to their daily regimen. Others may not care for its flowery scent.

~ Wish ~
Since this cream can be used daily, it would be helpful if it included SPF ingredients that blocked out the UV rays that cause further skin damage.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a natural, healthy cold-pressed oil-based face and neck moisturizer, try this one. I will update my opinion if I come across any other findings.

Thanks to Shizan for this discounted product that I am evaluating by choice.

Goodia LED Candelabra Light Bulbs

LED Bulbs 2LED TAPERED CANDELABRA LIGHT BULBS

~ What ~
This pack contains 6 LED light bulbs that are tapered and fit in chandeliers or candelabras. The dimmable lights that measure 3.9-inches long with base of 1.38-inches have sockets that fits most E12 electrical housings. They use only 4 watts of electricity compared to the standard 40-watt bulbs and should last 25,000 hours.

~ Why ~
What I like most about this product is that they save me money because they are LED so should last a long time. In putting them outside in our two garage carriage lights, they brightly shine on the area.

~ Why Not ~LED Bulbs 1
Some may not like how bright the lights shine, but the package states they are dimmable.

~ Wish ~
With the tapered shape, I wish their tips tear dropped like other candelabra bulbs or that the glass had a design or pattern on the sides.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a 6-pack of tapered LED candelabra light bulbs, this will make your fixtures shine brightly.

Thanks to Goodia for this discounted product that I am evaluating by choice.

~ Why ~Eifel
I love comfortable, loose-fitting shirts, and this one fits the bill. With the length being to the crotch area of my Size 8 frame, I can wear it with capris or leggings. Another nice feature is the Eiffel Tower design as it is colorful and should not fade.

It would be ideal to have cleaning instructions online.
