Tommy Raz Gun Holster

Gun Belt 1COMFORTABLE GUN HOLDER

~ What ~
This black unisex gun holder belt adjusts for waists measuring up to 44 inches wide and most types of handguns. Made of neoprene, it has an inner liner of cotton that absorbs moisture against the skin. There is a quick, silent elastic flip strap to release the gun with firm button closure. An elastic section is added that can hold a clip. It is hand washable and should be air dried.

~ Why ~Gun Belt 2
Wearing a comfortable gun belt when carrying a concealed weapon is a must, especially if the gun can be accessed quickly. I like how this one has a cotton lining that can be placed directly against the skin or over a shirt and not itch. Since the belt is almost 5 inches wide, it can be rotated easily for left or right handed gun users.

~ Why Not ~
Those who do not have a gun or carry a concealed weapon will not be interested in this item. Others may prefer a holder for their thigh or leg, but this one can adapt to inside or outside the waistband, cross body, appendix position, behind the hip, small of back, or as a shoulder holster under the shirt. Some may not like how wide it is.

~ Wish ~
Including an inner pocket between the fabrics would be ideal for identification or paper money.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a quality gun holster that is comfortable to wear for hours at a time, this is an excellent choice.

Seat Saver Car Seat Cover

QUICK PROTECTION FOR CAR SEATS

Car Seat Cover 1~ What ~
Made of two layers with the underside being waterproof PVC and the top cover Polyester, this universal car seat/headrest cover is for those who sweat, work out, get muddy, dirty, or sandy, and want to protect their vehicle’s complete seat. Available in five colors of black, blue, red, gray, and beige, it will fit most cars that include a headrest. Coming with instructions, it slips over the seat’s headrest. It is hand washable and should be air dried.

~ Why ~
I do not like when my husband has been exercising and gets in his car when there is no protection on his car’s seat. I like that this cover is easy to slip over the driver’s seat and remove and wash quickly. The fabric is breathable while the underside feels waterproof. It works great for those with pets who let them ride in the front seat of their cars.

~ Why Not ~
This product is more of an oblong waterproof sheet with a hooded area that slips over headrest and covers the entire seat when protection is needed. Some may not like having to put a cover on their car seats, thinking a folded towel will suffice, but this one covers the headrest and back and is waterproof so will protect the seat. Since there are no elastic bands or straps to secure it to the seat, it may slip and move around.Car Seat Cover 2

~ Wish ~
It would be nice if the product had Velcro tabs or elastic straps to secure it more tightly to the seat.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a universal car seat protection cover for when you are dirty, sweaty, or wet, this could be used quickly without taking to much time to put on and take off.

EXLIMITS Adjustable Knee Brace

Knee Brace 1PROTECT YOUR KNEES

~ What ~
This exercise kit includes one black open-patella knee brace, a resistance band, and a downloadable e-book link of five exercises. The brace is made of neoprene with extra long Velcro straps that can expand up to 27 inches. The resistance band is 12 inches long and 2 inches wide. The knee brace is hand washable and should be air dried. All items come in a gift box ready for wrapping.

~ Why ~
Having cracked a knee cap years ago, I occasionally suffer from knee pain if I walk too much. I like how this brace is easy to wrap around my knee at a desired compression level yet still be comfortable without cutting off my circulation. With one Velcro strap being longer than the other, it can be used for both males and females on most knees. The resistance band is durable and strong.

~ Why Not ~
Some may not like having to wear a brace, but it could be worn over clothes. Others may be uncomfortable wearing it, so it is recommended to adjust the tightness to match your desired level.Knee Brace 2

~ Wish ~
It would be nice if the brace were available in other colors. I wish the resistance band had how many pounds of maximum pressure as I have many of these, but cannot use the higher-weight resistance ones.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a quality knee brace that is comfortable, expandable, breathable, and supportive, this is an excellent choice

Best Choice Lighted Mirror with Jewelry Cabinet

WHITE MIRRORED JEWELRY CABINET

Jewelry Mirror 2~ What ~
Framed by painted white wood, this oblong dressing mirror on a sturdy stand has a large hidden jewelry cabinet that comes with a key and lock for security. Also added around the mirror are 20 LED lights that require 3 AA batteries that are not included. The complete piece of furniture that can tilt measures 58 inches tall, 18 inches wide, and 3.5 inches deep and weighs 28.6 pounds. Instructions are in the box, and some assembly is required by using a screwdriver.

~ Why ~
I make and collect jewelry, so I currently store it in bags by color. I like that this dressing mirror turns into a huge jewelry display that can hold 108 earring pairs,18 hooks for necklaces, 98 rings, 5 shelves with dividers and pockets for bracelets and a velvet-lined pocket. It took me less than 20 minutes to assemble without issues and no missing pieces. Being able to turn on or off the LED lights is a plus.

~ Why Not ~Jewelry Mirror 3
Some may not like the white color, but it could be painted, and it is also available in black. Others may not need so many sections for their jewelry. If you are concerned about assembling the product, it does not take much effort as the inside of the jewelry section is already assembled.

~ Wish ~
I wish the battery box were a little easier to open. Having adjustable shelves would be ideal.

~ Want ~
If you are looking a nice full-length tiltable dressing mirror that also is a large jewelry cabinet, look no further.

Thanks to Best Choice Products for this sample that I am freely evaluating.

Meaneor Short-Sleeved Dress

Geometric DressGeometric Short-Sleeve Shift

~ What ~
Made of 85% Terylene and 15% Cotton, this women’s collarless dress with geometric patterns has short sleeves and ends a few inches above the knee for an average-sized woman. Available in three colors of black, orange, or pink, it comes in four sizes of small, medium, large, and X-large. There are lines, circles, squares, and diamonds in the pattern with a solid rust suede pocket on the left breast. Cleaning instructions are included on an attached tag stating it can be machined washed and hang dry.

~ Why ~
I like the feel of the material as it is soft and stretchy. The pattern is eye-catching and noticeable. Another nice feature is there is no zipper so it can be slipped over the head to wear. The size Large fit my Size 8 frame comfortably with plenty of breathing room. I liked the rust pocket feature as I have a matching belt and sandals that will complete the outfit.

~ Why Not ~
Some may not like that there is no zipper. Others may not like the pocket as on the black one, there is little rust color in the garment, so it stands out. Tall women may think it is too short, but it was a modest length on my body. I ordered one size up to make sure it fit, yet I could have gotten a medium since the material is stretchy.

~ Wish ~
I wish the pattern were available in a sleeveless floor-length dress too as it is attractive.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a fun, geometric comfy summer dress, this inexpensive one may be a perfect choice.

Thanks for Meaneor for this discounted product that I am freely evaluating.

Talix Traveling Storage Bags

Complete Travel Packing Cube Set with Extras

Packing Cubes~ What ~
Made mostly of nylon, this collection of four waterproof, tearproof, collapsible black bags have mesh-designed tops with zippered closures on three of four sides. Able to see the contents inside, the four sizes are Extra-Large, Large, Medium, and Small. Having red accent piping, all come with outside carrying straps. Also included is an all-black drawstring laundry bag and matching toiletry bag. All can be washed in cold water and air dried.

~ Why ~
This set of 4 cubes is ideal for traveling or storing items when you need to see what is inside without having to open each one. I appreciate that two zippers are on each bag so one can open and shut with different options. With the mesh strips down 2 sides of the front of each bag, it makes it is easy to see what is inside the bag. The toiletry bag is nicely designed with three outside zippered sections plus a handle, and inside there are multiple mesh compartments with a double-zippered mesh pocket. The laundry bag is of adequate size with a toggle drawstring that can keep dirty laundry separate from clean in a suitcase.

~ Why Not ~
Some may think the bags are not deep enough, as they are only 3 to 3.25 inches in depth. However, if used to be put inside larger suitcases, the depth needs to be somewhat shallow.

~ Wish ~
My husband will enjoy using all these bags when traveling, but I wish the mesh wrapped around the front side, so if stacked, one could view their contents.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a set of 4 zippered bags to organize when traveling as well as toiletry and laundry bags, this is a keeper.

Shapibody Hand Grip & Wrist Wraps

Flex Your Wrists & Hands

Hand Grip~ What ~
This exercise kit includes one red and black hand grip with two adjustable wristbands and instructions. The grip is made of hard plastic with a metal spring loader above the handles and a knob to adjust from 22 to 88 pounds of weight. The 2 wristbands are 18-inches long and 3-inches wide each and can be adapted to all sizes of hands.

~ Why ~
Having recently hurt my shoulder, my wrist is impacted as well, so this hand grip offers me, a woman, a way to improve my hand’s reflexes and strength. I like that the 2 handles have a black non-slip covering that is comfortable to grip. Adjusting the weight is simple by turning a knob that can work for men, women, and children. The terrycloth wraps are long with a wide Velcro strap for adjusting plus an elastic band to loop on a finger on the right or left hand.

~ Why Not ~
Some may not like working out with a hand grip, but it can improve and maintain strength, especially for those with arthritis. Others may not like wrist wraps, but they do absorb sweat and moisture.

~ Wish ~
I wish there were a marker on the adjustment knob showing the pounds as there are only plus and minus markers, but one can tell when more or less weight is applied.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a quality hand grip with an adjustable weight setting, this one that includes 2 wrist wraps and instructions would be a great choice.

Best Choice Products Storable Wagon

CONVENIENT COLLAPSIBLE CART

Folding Cart 1~ What ~
Made of white painted steel with a heavy-duty royal blue polyester fabric, this foldable cart can hold up to 150 pounds of weight. Measuring 36 by 21 by 25.8 inches when open, it collapses to 21 by 7 by 30 inches. With four durable 8 by 3-inch wheels, it has a storage area that is 30 by 17.5 by 10.75 inches. Two small mesh cup holders are on the outside of the storage bin. It does not need assembling except to expand or collapse and comes with instructions.

~ Why ~
I love how this collapsible bin can be expanded and rolled on the sidewalk, grass, dirt, or sand with its pull handle while carting items around our yard. Other nice features are the ergonomic handle that is adjustable in length and the storage bag that can be removed (the wagon can still hold large, bulky items on its strong frame). With the wheels being made of a hard plastic, they will not go flat like other cart’s tires.

~ Why Not ~Folding Cart 2
Some may not like the storage area is made out of fabric so may wear, get dirty, or become moldy over time, but it can be removed. Others may not like that the wagon is bulky, but its best feature is it can be folded and stored during the winter months when not in use.

~ Wish ~
Although the empty, collapsed cart can be rolled easily when transporting, its wheels line up in a row, making it hard to stand upright on its own. Having a bracket or brake may allow it to stand stationary without rolling.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a collapsible cart on wheels that can carry up to 150 pounds, this is ideal for the yard, outdoor party, camping, tailgating, or when heavy items need to be moved.

Silico-App Makeup Sponges

Makeup DiscsA CLEANER WAY TO PUT ON LIQUID MAKEUP

~ What ~
Made of a clear 100% medical grade silicone, this package of two sponges is for applying makeup. Measuring 2.5 by 1.5 by 0.33 inches, the oval discs help blend foundation makeup. Instructions are not included.

~ Why ~
As I get older, I notice when my makeup is uneven, especially at the jawline. I like how this tool can blend a cream foundation effortlessly but lightly patting my face. Because the discs are clear, you can put a spot of foundation directly on one to see how much you need. Having to use very little foundation, my makeup goes farther, so costs me less money. Another nice feature is that the sponges can be washed immediately with soap and water, so no makeup sits and builds up bacteria.

~ Why Not ~
Some may not like the feeling of gliding a rubbery disc across their skin, but the product does do a good job. Others who use powdered foundations will not be interested in this item.

~ Wish ~
I tried using a sponge with dry foundation and found it does not work well. I wish instructions with tips were included.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a regulated and flawless way to add makeup to your skin, these economical discs do the trick if you use liquid foundations or blushes.

Thanks to Silico-App for this discounted product that I am freely evaluating.

Dr. Maya Shower Seat

~ What ~Bath Chair 1
Made of sturdy off-white plastic with four aluminum legs that have anti-slip rubber feet, this shower chair can be adjusted from 13.77 to 19.68 inches tall and has a seat that is 10.62 by 17.32 inches. Weighing only 4.7 pounds, it can hold up to 300 pounds of weight. It comes with a 12-inch long shower handle that can be secured to a wall or cabinet. Minor assembly is required, and instructions are included in a gift box.

~ Why ~
Since I volunteer weekly at an independent living facility, I notice how many tenants slip and often fall, especially when in the shower. With this chair, one can sit in the shower and not fall. I like how it is a little taller than others on the market with its 7 height settings, yet it has small leg diameters so can fit tighter spaces. Another nice feature is the handles and holes in the seat that help drain water and the seat surface that is not slippery. Adding the wall shower handle is a plus. It took me under 5 minutes to assemble by screwing in 5 bolts with washers.

~ Why Not ~Bath Chair 2
Some may not like putting a chair in a shower or tub, but it may help avoid an accident when bathing, especially for those who are rehabilitating or do not have good balance. Others may not like having to assemble it.

~ Wish ~
I wish somehow the chair could fold flat for storage.

~ Want ~
If you are looking a durable, sturdy, and adjustable shower seat, this is an excellent choice.

Thanks to Dr. Maya for this sample that I am freely evaluating.
