Anavita Moisturizing Anti-Wrinkle Cream Review

Who doesn't want healthy screen? I am always in constant search of good skin care products which can make my skin healthy and glowing. I am trying an anti-wrinkle cream product from Anavita these days.
Anavita cream is white in color. It is having thick texture and is not very oily. My skin is sensitive but not very oily . I have to apply a little amount of this cream to moisturize my face. It provides  enough moisture and keeps my skin hydrated.

It is not like lotions but is thick in consistency.This cream has nice fragrance which is not very strong. I am not having wrinkles on my skin as of now, I am using it to keep my skin healthy and young. 

I apply this cream in morning as daily facial cream. Winter season is really harsh for skin, cold winds and heating takes all moisture from skin. You can't leave outside without applying good moisturizers, this cream serves its purpose well. I am using this cream since 2 weeks and have not observed any acne problem or breakouts on skin.
In a nutshell, I am satisfied with the quality of Anavita anti-wrinkle cream but it's bit expensive. I would buy this product if this is on sale or I get some discounts.

Anavita Anti-Wrinkle cream is available on Amazon and costs $29.95 for 50 ml size jar.

I mostly apply conditioner after shampooing hair. You can consider this hair mask mostly as a conditioner. It comes in a plastic jar containing 240 ml . This is having thick cream like consistency and not like oil.
It is very easy to apply. I mostly use it a conditioner i.e after doing shampoo, I take little amount of this cream and spread it on my hair. I only wait for 5-7 mins and then wash with water.

This product doesn't produce any lather, it is having consistency like cream and is not very oily. I checked my bathtub and bathtub was not slippery after its usage. It is light brown in color and has strong smell. I couldn't describe it's smell but it smells little strong.

When ever I apply this product it makes my hair soft and smooth. I could feel the difference easily. Also, I noticed that I was able to comb my hair easily. It reduced hair combing time by at least 50%.

In short, I liked this product. I am using it as a daily conditioner. It keeps my hair soft and silky. You can try it for preventing dry hair problem, it hydrates hair really well. Only feedback or suggestion that I would like to give is to make it smell like some flower. Currently it has some wild woody smell. If it can be changed to some good flowery smell then I would really love that.

InstaNatural Argan Oil Hair Mask is available on Amazon and costs $19.95.

Have you ever felt the need of weighing very light weight items like envelopes, small food items etc.

Pocket scales are designed to solve this purpose. I recently got a chance to test Smart Weigh Digital Pro Pocket Scale. This scale is very small and made up of stainless steel. It's a cute and small scale which is designed to weigh up to 500 grams in increments of 0.01g.

I am using this scale in my kitchen for weighing small food items like dry fruits, some herbs etc. I also weighed my jewelery items on this scale to get an idea of their weight. This scale has 4 buttons to start, change weigh settings, count pieces and hold readings. I normally use oz or gm settings for getting readings, it can measure in gm, oz, ozt, dwt, gn, and ct. It comes with 2 AAA battery cells and has a 2 minute auto shut off feature. So, even if you don't press it's off button , this smart scale will get turn off automatically to save battery. The readings are shown clearly on screen with blue light in background.

#xoundstar Smart Wireless Bluetooth Speaker Portable Review

These days technology is so advanced that you just think about a product and same day you can find that in market. Few days back, I was experiencing low volume problems while watching some videos on my phone. That time I was thinking about some alternatives and next day I came to know about portable speaker from Xoundstar. I read that this product can connect with any device which supports bluetooth and can be used as a portable speaker to amplify the sound.
I got a chance to review this product, I have been testing this Xoundstar speaker from last 3-4 weeks and now sharing my findings.
  • Small in size and portable-  This speaker is very small in size, you can keep it anywhere. You can keep it on your desk, on kitchen counter tops , bathroom. There are endless possibilities, you can keep this portable speaker anywhere you want to listen music or talk on speaker.
  • 2 in 1 device- This device has hand-free speakerphone function, just dial a number and put call on speakerphone. Also, this can be used as normal speaker for listening to your favorite songs.
  • Solid battery backup- Just charge it once and then it lasts for hours (8-10 hrs).
  • Superb sound quality- No words to describe the quality of sound.It's amazing.
This speaker really does its job very well, I really liked the surround sound effect of this device.  You can control volume either from speaker or from Bluetooth device. It's very easy to setup, it comes with a wire which can be used to connect with USB device.

When I connect it with my phone, then blue light blinks and it starts charging. Device interacts by playing messages like- Low battery, connected etc. Top panel of device has volume controls, hands-free speaker control etc.

I liked all the features of this device except one, it takes a little pause when I increase or decrease volume from device; but there is no pause when I change volume by bluetooth device. Otherwise, It's very convenient to use, you can keep it anywhere. It can be used to play music in car, on beach, almost anywhere.In a nutshell, I am impressed with the quality of Xoundstar and would recommend this to everyone.

Galley Essentials Silicone Baking Cups Review

If you love baking cupcakes , you would be amazed to know about silicon baking cups. These are colorful baking cups that can be used in place of paper cups. I recently got a chance to try these baking cups from Galley Essentials. Their baking cups set consists of 12 colorful cups.

Initially I was bit hesitant to place these cups in oven as have never baked any food in cups made of silicon material. As per product description , these cups can handle up to 446F. I first tried by keeping these in microwaves for 1-2 minutes by filling with pancake batter for test purpose. Cups were fine and didn't melt though my experiment failed with pancake mix as it turned like a mini brick ( Still I love experimenting..)

Next I tested these cups for baking cupcakes which I later topped with Grapes and Raspberry jelly. There is no need of paper cups or round tins,you can directly place 12 cups on a cookie sheet and bake cupcakes. I was able to bake proper cupcakes which tasted similar to traditional cupcakes baked using  paper cups. I found paper cup cakes more convenient when it comes to cooling and cleaning. When I removed cupcake from these silicon cups, there was little residue left.

I don't wash these in dishwasher as these are very small and I find it more convenient to hand wash these. As per company these are BPA free. Personally I prefer products which are BPA free, from water bottles to containers. I think these silicon cups served their purpose well, these are colorful and cute. You can reuse same set for many times and it's easy to clean.

But if you have to bake a large batch of cupcakes say for a party then I would prefer to go with paper cups. I don't have to worry about guests throwing my reusable cups in dustbin and paper cups will be cheaper as well. On the other hand these are good if I have to make small batches of cup cakes for daily routine.

Galley Essentials Silicon Baking Cups are available on Amazon in $10.99.
