Friday Review Mash Up #28


Welcome to the end of April and the 28th Friday Review Mash Up.  This week’s reviews might have some great gifts for Mother’s Day for your mom, wife, aunt, or grandmother.  


Willow and Everett Glass Teapot Infuser

The Willow and Everett Glass Teapot Infuser is beautifully hand-blown and allows you to steep your loose-leaf or bagged tea in a large steel infuser workout getting your fingers burned. The glass teapot hold 5 cups of your favorite tea and is microwavable after removing the metal attachments. Even comes with its own cozy to keep from getting burns and to keep your beverage hot. The whole thing comes apart for easy washing and the lid is easily stored upside down in the teapot to keep it fairly low profile. Perfect for everyday use or when you’re having guests.



Mommy Medicine Wine Glass

The Mommy Medicine Wine Glass is a full-sized 13 ounce wine glass that is not only decorative, but made to use as well. Labeled with the words “Mommy Medicine”, this glass would be great for a group of moms getting together sans kids for a girls’ night in, birthday gift for a favorite mommy wine lover, or kept as a reminder that the weekend is coming sooner than you think. It comes in a sturdy box ready for wrapping in some decorative paper. If you’re a mommy who NEEDS a glass of wine, then THIS is YOUR glass!



Beardsman Spirit Beard Shampoo

If you’re looking for a beard shampoo you’ve stumbled upon the right one. When first opening the bottle I first smelled it. It had a nice manly smell to it. It didn’t smell like a girly shampoo with added scents. It smelled like the essential oils and eucalyptus that are part of the ingredients. If you’re looking for flowers and rainbows you might as well shave off that pathetic hair you call a beard.

The bottle is a decent size, will probably last a good 6 months. The boxy shape makes it easy to hang on to and the flip cap makes it a synch for a one handed pour. I tipped the bottle upside down and put some in my bear claw of a hand. It’s perfectly clear, because men have no need for artificial colors. So those of you who can’t see 2 feet in front of you be careful not to over pour.

When I lathered it up it didn’t feel like a typical shampoo. It was like a mixture of shampoo and beard oil. Not only were you washing your beard, but it was putting life back into your beard that’s been covered in diesel, gun powder, and sweat.

Since it’s rare for a bearded man to shower alone, I had my wife smell my beard after rinsing out the shampoo. She told me my beard still had the smell of that cigar I smoked earlier in the day. Perfect! However, for testing purposes I lathered up a 2nd time and passed my wife’s smell test. In conclusion, use this product once to get clean and a 2nd time to remove any shred of your manly behavior that’s still lingering on those chin hairs.



UPOWER Long Arm Universal Windshield Cell Phone Holder

I’ve tried many phone holders in my car, both vent and window mounted, and the UPOWER Long Arm Universal Windshield Cell Phone Holder is quite possibly the best cell phone holder of the bunch. The nut holds the phone claw steady and is not cross-threaded. The flexible arm is easily moved out of the way when you’re not using it. I had to move it over my A/C vent to cool my phone when it was in the direct sun. It works in the middle of your windshield or on the side of your window. The claw is easily turned so that you can position your phone horizontally or vertically. I can’t find a single negative thing to tell you about this cell phone holder. It is hands down my favorite cell phone holder and I highly recommend it over any other cell phone holder I’ve ever recommended.


Majestic Pure Fractionated Coconut Oil

Majestic Pure Fractionated Coconut Oil will never go bad, because the fractionating process also makes the coconut oil’s shelf life nearly indefinite and it won’t go rancid. It is a “fraction of” actual coconut oil, because some of its properties have been removed. Fractionated coconut oil is an excellent carrier oil that never goes rancid and is perfectly clear, odorless, and colorless oil. Perfect for the do-it-yourself beauty product developer or as a carrier oil for essential oil users.

The coconut oil’s light, non-greasy characteristics make it the perfect oil for massaging. It penetrates your skin while nourishing, moisturizing, and softening it. It’s a perfect oil for those with fragrance sensitivities. I personally like to use coconut oil as a moisturizer for my skin and to remove my waterproof mascara. It’s much better for my skin than mineral oils.

This fractionated coconut oil has antioxidant and disinfectant properties because of the fractionating process, which raises the concentration of capric acid and caprylic acid, so it’s great for treating acne and other skin conditions. It’s said that it works well in relieving the itching of poison ivy, although I’ve never used it for that reason.

Fractionated coconut oil does not contribute to a rise in cholesterol and is extremely stable for cooking. It’s said that it’s better for weight loss than olive oil. It remains in a liquid state at room temperature, unlike virgin coconut oil, and it doesn’t need to be refrigerated.


SpaceSaver Premium Jumbo Vacuum Storage Bags

I’ve previously used space saver bags that you roll to get the extra air out, but these large SpaceSaver Premium Jumbo Vacuum Storage Bags have a hand pump that sucks the air out through a 1-way valve. You can also use a vacuum cleaner to suck the air out even quicker. This makes using them so easy to use. The air is quickly removed from the bag once you load it up with whatever you’re protecting. Keeps water out of clothes when camping, hunting, and boating. It cuts down on space when packing luggage and great to separate your clean clothes from the dirty.

Should TSA actually opened your suitcase, your clothes won’t get tossed about or dropped by accident. Everything will be exactly where it’s packed. If your perfume bottle breaks or lotion explodes, your clothes would be protected from anything that might spill. These space saver bags are great for storing your seasonal clothes and keeping them safe from moths or mildew. I highly recommend them.
