Thrive Face Balm
Thrive Face Balm
Price: $14.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Face Balm, September 2, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I liked but didn't like Thrive's new Face Balm. By that I mean, it had a nice scent, and did make my face feel softer and smoother, but I like the "bracing" feeling of my usual aftershave. However, I tried using my usual then this stuff, and that was excellent. I did like the scent, which came on strong but faded fast, a nice herbal woody scent, very nice.

Thrive sez this stuff has: "A potent blend of medicinal plants from Costa Rica that actually work. More effective than synthetic chemicals found in most skin care products, these active ingredients are unique to Thrive and help restore the vitality of your skin.

FIERRILLO: a rainforest vine with anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties used by indigenous Costa Ricans to heal skin.

JUANILAMA: potent anti-oxidant from the mint family used to treat skin abrasions and a wide range of other ailments."

But I couldn't find any research on "Fierrillo".

For Juanilama, I found a interesting site: "How to get better with the Medicinal Plants of Costa Rica" which says "Medicinal Uses:
Mostly used for its relaxant and digestive properties. Also known to help aid the treatment of liver problems and colds. Treating arthritis pains or rheumatism." Nothing about skin abrasions. Several other sites mention using it as a tea.

Thus, I have some doubts as to these herbs. I will see if there are any long term improvements to my face.


Valtev 12 Function Multi Tool Pliers with Hoof Pick
Valtev 12 Function Multi Tool Pliers with Hoof Pick
Offered by Valtev
Price: $17.55

5.0 out of 5 stars one pretty darn decent multi-tool., September 2, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
So far, of the discounted samples I received from Valtev, this is my favorite. It is a substantial multi-tool, with 12 features:
needlenose pliers & wire cutters - with spring.
knife, 2.5 inch blade
can and bottle openers
phillips & flat head screwdrivers
file
fish scaler (kinda useless but is a sorta saw, too) with ruler
horse hoof pick

Al in all eight "blades'

All with a interesting locking mechanism that took me a minute to figure out.

I have to say this is one pretty darn decent multi-tool.


Dark Side of the Road, The: A country house murder mystery with a supernatural twist (An Ishmael Jones Mystery)
Dark Side of the Road, The: A country house murder mystery with a supernatural twist (An Ishmael Jones Mystery)
by Simon R. Green
Edition: Hardcover
Price: $23.81
16 used & new from $23.81

5.0 out of 5 stars Mystery, Murder, Mayhem!, September 2, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a interesting turn for Simon Green. It starts as a pretty classic English country house murder mystery, but then- (not surprising since it's from Simon Green) it turns into a fascinating & exciting supernatural thriller. You might even call this horror or Urban Fantasy.

"Ishmael" is a fascinating new Green character, like- but unlike other Green protagonists.

Very readable, a real page turner. Not only for Simon Green fans but for fans of supernatural mysteries.

5.0 out of 5 stars This nifty device is Two, Two products in one!, August 30, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This nifty device is Two, Two products in one! First you get a double-walled glass or cup, that will keep hot beverages hot, and cold one cols- and not leave a ring. It's thicker high temperature borosilicate glass than others of it's ilk, but still, I wouldn't put it in the dishwasher. This is a really nice cup or glass, worth the price of admission right there. Hand blown, too.

Next, it's a loose-leave tea infuser, and one that is far easier to use and clean than most- and it wont rust. Same Hand blown high temperature borosilicate glass.

Topping it off (literally and figuratively) is a glass cover to keep your tea hot while you wait for it to steep.

They were nice enough to offer me a significant discount (and I see it's on sale right now for everyone, too!) in exchange for a honest review.

Working for Bigfoot
Working for Bigfoot
by Jim Butcher
Edition: Hardcover
Price: $31.50
15 used & new from $31.50

5.0 out of 5 stars If you need your Dresden Files fix, here is the book for you!, August 30, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Working for Bigfoot (Hardcover)
If you need your Dresden Files fix, here is the book for you. Three lighthearted and very readable short-stories or novellas, all with a central theme- that of (of course!) Working for Bigfoot! Harry is hired by a BIG Bigfoot to protect his half-human son, Irwin.

Hearken back to the Harry Dresden of old with: "B is For Bigfoot", where Harry dons a janitors uniform to help Irwin. Then at a fancy private high school ''I Was a Teenage Bigfoot,'' Harry is called in again. Lastly, Irwin is a freshman in college in ''Bigfoot on Campus,'' where we get some new entanglements with the White Court.

These are really Harry Dresden at Jim Butchers best, but you do only get 136 pages. Personally, I thought it was worth it. Your Milage May Vary- how much do you want more Harry Dresden? This is not the book for the first time Dresden reader, but rather for the dedicated fan (which I am, unabashedly). Very readable, with a few chuckles.


Pocket Knife, Folding Hunting Stainless Steel Lockback Blade, SS and Wood Inlay Handle, Sturdy Nylon Pouch Included
Pocket Knife, Folding Hunting Stainless Steel Lockback Blade, SS and Wood Inlay Handle, Sturdy Nylon Pouch Included
Offered by Valtev
Price: $19.95

4.0 out of 5 stars nice knife for the price., August 29, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a very nice, buck looking knife, that both looks and is sharp. (Sure, you could add a little, but it's Ok right out of the box). The fit and finish along with the locking mechanism are all solid- except the spacers between the wood on the grips. On mine the wood and stainless steel didn't quite mesh right, making it rough there.

Lightweight, with a blade just about 4", this is a great useful size that isn't intimidating. Keep in the sheath on your belt or in your pocket, it fits either.

Valtev was nice enough to give me a great deal on a number of their products in return for a honest review.

This is a very nice, buck looking knife, that both looks and is sharp. (Sure, you could add a little, but it's Ok right out of the box). The fit and finish along with the locking mechanism are all solid. Not sure why they call this "french Style" seems pretty standard american to me.

Lightweight, with a blade just about 4", this is a great useful size that isn't intimidating. Keep in the sheath or your belt or in your pocket, it first either.

Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania
Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania
by Erik Larson
Edition: Hardcover
Price: $15.71
192 used & new from $10.89

5.0 out of 5 stars a fantastic modern recap, August 27, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The Lusitania and WWI have always been of particular interest to me, and thus I was eager to read Erik Larsons always entertaining, well researched and always readable takes on it. I was not disappointed.

"Dead Wake" reads like a novel, but it's more or less pure history. Larson also covers Room 40 (British decoding) and the voyage of Kapitänleutnant Schwieger in his U-20.

Some surprising bits here, that I wont spoil, but really, just a fantastic modern recap of a fascinating historical voyage.

5.0 out of 5 stars very cool looking retro watch, August 24, 2015
This is a very cool looking retro watch, with a little "steampunk" vibe. It's a windup watch. No battery to change, you dont have to keep in moving to wind etc. But you do have to remember to wind it.

I received many compliments on how cool this watch looked. In fact, it gather more attention than my everyday Invicta.

For my "senior" eyes, I'd prefer slightly larger and more luminous hands. I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

As "wrist jewelry" it is a great idea, it gets attention and looks expensive.
