4.0 out of 5 stars Worked just as it says- Fresh!, May 21, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
We gave this a try and it worked exactly as promised. It left a mild but "clean" scent on the clothes (and in the washing machine, which was nice) which seemed to last pretty much all day. If you sniffed your clothes you could smell it, but it wasn't obvious to anyone not actually standing next to you and sniffing. So you're not gonna annoy your co-workers with it.

That being said, to us this really has a rather limited use. We don't get really sweaty or smelly, except on gardening days. I work a desk job in a climate controlled office.

But yeah, we had some socks and stuff that we didn't want to wash in hot water, but had a little musty smell left after regular cold-water wash. This Downey counter-acted that and left the socks smelling nice for a change. So, that might be the perfect niche for this product.

I am a little "scent-sensitive" but for me this scent didn't cause my nose to explode, and my O (who has a much more sensitive sniffer) also liked it.

5.0 out of 5 stars No Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS)!, May 15, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is great tasting toothpaste that contains fluoride- which is great.

But what's even better is what it DOESN'T have- Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS). SLS is found in most toothpastes (even a leading "Natural" brand)and shampoos. It's a foaming agent, so it does nothing for toothpaste other than make you think it's working better. In other words, it's useless. Many of you are used to it, it does give your mouth a 'clean feeling" - which actually is harmful. Altho stories that it causes cancer seem to be unsubstantiated, it definitely causes irritation and canker sores in many users.

Canker sores are those small white painful sores that seem to take forever to heal. SLS is one thing that causes them. I only use SLS-free toothpaste. The International Journal of Toxicology has a report : Final Report on the Safety Assessment of Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genuine Brita Filters!, May 13, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These are genuine Brita filters- the new style with the little thingee on top of the filter. Getting them by the ten-pack saves a lot of money.

Brita filters basically make your tap water taste better and are far cheaper and better for the environment than bottled water. In any case, most bottled water is just tap water run thru a filter. Cut out the middle-man and save money!

Brita makes a deal about they also make your water safer. Most tap water is completely safe- but this is cheap insurance.

For emergency water, just takes those two liter soda bottles, rinse with bleach water and then leave some of the bleach water in. (About 5-10 drops per bottle). Store in a cool dark place. Then when you need them for drinking, run that water thru a Brita filter, which will take out the chlorine taste. Note that Brita filters are not suitable for water that is not safe to drink, but if you use bleach then the filter you're good.

4.0 out of 5 stars super easy to install, May 13, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This DVD player was super easy to install. Just take your HDMI cable (sold separately, we bought the Amazon one) plug into the back of the TV and the DVD player, plug the DVD cord into a power socket and DONE!

No blinking time or other things to "set" (you can customize the set up if you like). Bing, bang, boom- movies!

Easy to use standard Sony controls. Two AA batteries and go!

This has the three colored cables for older TVs. Why the HDMI cables were not included is a mystery.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stygian darkness!, May 13, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
We live out here in north LA county, near Magic Mountain, in the High Desert- and the sun gets very hot and very bright. The house did have installed blinds, but they were inadequate. So we put up black-out or thermal curtains in several rooms.

However, these curtains by Best Home Fashion are far and away the best. They have a nice soft drape and they block light and heat better than any of the others. You don't have to be a day sleeper to use these- they will reduce your air conditioning bills too. Not to mention outside noise at nite. They will also reduce your heating bills at nite in colder climates.

5.0 out of 5 stars Goji Berries 5 stars!, May 12, 2015
Many times, goji berries have a lingering after taste that leaves much to be desired. I didn’t experience that with the Viva Labs Organic goji berries. I enjoyed adding them to my salad as well as eating them straight from the bag. I love how they are high in nutrients, and you don’t need a lot to feel satisfied. I rcvd a sample for review.

We also tried some dipped in dark chocolate, and that was fantastic!

5.0 out of 5 stars Frankincense oil 5 stars!, May 12, 2015
Usually, this type of oil is way too heady and overpowering anything else it’s combined with. However, this oil by Aviano Botanicals blended well with patchouli and smelled wonderful. We rcvd a sample for review.

My SO is looking forward to adding it to a body spray!

Not to mention- it's great for a Christmas gift!

5.0 out of 5 stars Rosehip oil 5 stars!, May 12, 2015
My SO and I enjoyed this simple and versatile oil. It was well-made and easy to pump from the bottle. It’s wonderful for removing makeup without harsh chemicals.

We have also found it’s also great for an evening facial moisturizer. Also, we added it to our homemade facial wash with tea tree oil, Castille soap, and distilled water. It adds just the right amount of softness while helping to cleanse the face. We highly recommend this product! We rcvd a sample for review.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid fantasy adventure, May 5, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I was really impressed with this book by neophyte Robert John MacKenzie . Thurmond's Saga is a solid medieval-fantasy adventure tale, full of derring-do, heroics, horrid monsters and really nasty villains. But what made it especially nice is that despite being a fantasy tale (I'd call this "High Fantasy") the characters are firmly grounded in reality. Thurmond, our plucky protagonist , has no superhuman skills with sword or magic, and in fact is a pretty normal youth, possessing only above average wit, bravery and luck. The rest of the characters- Rosco the veteran, Torgul the dwarf and Sarah the young sorceress are also well done and rooted in reality.

The combat scenes are very well done, and show that Robert must have some skill with medieval weapons himself. Violent, yes, but realistic and not too gory. And- characters die, and bad things happen- this is no fairytale world, but neither is it overly dark and gritty.

It's a old plot & theme but a good one- plucky peasant lad wants to better himself and sets off on an adventure, gathering companions (and foes) as he goes.

Readers who enjoy Fantasy Roleplaying Games will especially like this book, methinks. Very readable. Robert makes few of the stumbles one expects from a newish author.

5.0 out of 5 stars sharp idea!, May 5, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a great knife for all around and outdoor use. We all know Gibb's Rule 9: "Never go anywhere without a knife.", and this is a good knife to follow that rule with. True, for 100% urban use, a Swiss army knife is also good, maybe better. But there's no reason not to get one of those for your keychain and carry this also.

First let's talk about the blade- razor sharp and partially serrated. The right length- just long enough for most tasks and it could be a defensive weapon- but not so big it's obvious it's a weapon, instead of a tool. There's also a seat-belt cutter and window breaker, so it'd be good to keep one in the car.

Add to that is a very bright LED flashlight, and a flint firestarter. This gives you three of the Ten Essentials right there- and possibly the most important three.
