Dot & Dot Slim Packing Cubes Review

If you travel frequently or you love organizing then you should read this post. I got a chance to review slim packing cubes from a company named Dot & Dot.

These packing cubes comes in multiple colors and their size is 11" x 6.75" x 3". When I tried, I could easily fit my 2 dresses in each. Each set comes with 4 slim packing cubes.

These organizers are not like hard boxes but these are bags. You can adjust these cubes in your luggage, suitcase, wardrobe very easily. You can also stack these. I used these packing organizers while going on a trip recently.  Each cube package can easily store 3-4 t-shirts. It helps in keeping clothes wrinkle free and you can easily make different sets based on your requirements.I liked the quality of these organizers. These packing cubes almost turns into flat boxes when you unzip these. I would have liked these more if these can have some solid box type base even when zip is not closed. This creates problem in storing daily usage items like socks.Picture below shows my attempt in storing socks.

Dot & Dot slim packing cubes are available on Amazon and costs around $26.97.

Funny Face Dried Cranberries Review

I love exploring new snacks and share my opinions on my blog. This time I got a chance to review dried cranberries from a company named Funny Face. I have tried their cranberries from their another company named Decas and really loved their Paradise Meadow organic cranberries
While shopping every time I see aisles full of lot of snack options say cookies, trail mixes, bars etc. But, when I start going through their ingredients or nutrition info then most snacks don't qualify and I get very few options to select from.
These days I am trying to avoid corn fructose syrup or any unhealthy ingredients in snacks. So, when I first got these Funny Faced cranberries I checked their ingredients and nutrition info to check if these fit my parameters.
As per company, Funny Faced Cranberries have-
  • 50% less sugar than traditional dried cranberries
  • 5 times the fiber
  • 25% less calories
  • Natural and fat free
  • No cholesterol
  • No preservatives
  • Kosher certified
  • Gluten free
Ingredients- Cranberries, soluble corn fiber, evaporated cane juice etc.

I checked ingredients and nutrition  facts and didn't find anything surprising. I am not sure about corn fiber, but unless it is non GMO then that should be good.

Funny Faced Cranberries have launched their product in small boxes each having 21 gram or .75 oz  of snacks. You can put these small packages in your lunch box, bags or in pockets. I liked the packaging and this concept of small boxes.

Now coming to the taste, these cranberries come in Cherry flavor and these are claimed to have 50% less sugar than normal dried cranberries. I liked the taste moderately, but If you like Cherry flavor then you might really love this flavor. These are not very sweet and gives good aftertaste of cherry flavor.

If your kids or you like too much sugary snacks or don't have inclination towards cherry flavor, then this is not the right snack for you. But, if you like less sugary and healthy snacks and like cherry flavor, then you should give it a try.You can also use these dried cranberries like other raisins and put these while baking cookies or any other desserts. 

I would like Funny Face Cranberries to launch similar boxes in other flavors as well. I am satisfied with the quality of these dried cranberries.Case of 6 multi packs of  6-.75 oz dried Cranberries boxes costs $15.99. If you want to try, you can buy Funny Faced Dried Cranberries at their online shop.

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.
It also comes with a plastic lid case which can be used to protect this scale or can be used as a tray while weighing.

I think it is easy to use and you can keep this scale in kitchen or office desk and this can help in weighing any small items you can think within 500 gm limit. If you have to post envelopes frequently or have some home business then this gadget would be really helpful . It gave me correct readings and I am satisfied with this scale.
