Tropical Traditions Hand Cream Review & Giveaway


4-oz – Moisturizing Cream – Citrus
When I think of moisturizing cream, it is definitely not with Coconut Oil and Tropical Traditions!  When the opportunity arose for me to try this out and share this product with you I was excited to try this lotion and share with you.  When looking at the lotions, there is a wide variety of creams and fragrances to choose from.  I chose the Citrus basically because I just love that smell!

I learned a lot about lotions from Tropical Traditions, including that the base of their lotions are made with the finest oils such as Virgin organic Coconut oils Tests show that these are higher in anti-oxidants than other coconut oils.

You may also find Palm Oils in your cream! These Palm oils are high with vitamin E which is also important for a good moisturizer and instead of vitamin E being added it comes naturally in your Tropical Tradition Hand Cream!

 I have been using their Hand Cream, Citrus Scent for several weeks to give it a try!  Ingredients purified water, organic virgin coconut oil, plant based emulsifying wax, palm stearic, grapefruit seed extract, organic beeswax, organic virgin palm oil, and organic essential oils of orange, mandarin, spearmint, lemon, grapefruit, lemongrass, and tangerine  I have found that it had helped keep my dry skin hydrated and my hands are nice and soft and shines! Yes, my skin shines, like it is smiling back at me and it looks healthy! I just love the Tropical Traditions Hand Creams. There are many different creams to choose from, unscented, lavender, mint, and more, so check out their page and see what entices you.  There are also lotions to go along with these if you like lotions.  I will tell you that Trop Traditions has the highest quality products you will find and from their edible coconut to their other products, you just can’t go wrong! I highly recommend this company to you!

Slice o Matic New Giveaway created for you~


Slice-O-Matic™

Have you ever heard of the SliceOMatic? It slices, it chops and it Julienne’s!  I was curious about this kitchen helper and wanted to try one out to see how it works, so I contacted the company about doing a review so here we are!

I received the unit packed nicely and safely in a box packed inside a box!  I removed the box and saw a colorfully packages unit with the SliceOMatic in it. My daughter tried it a week or so ago to chop onions and didn’t have much to say about it. She stated it took more time and trouble to get the unit ready for an onion than to just chop it herself without the unit.  So there was one opinion in my household.

Last night I decided to try and prepare julienne potatoes for Hash Browns and this is something I have NEVER made from scratch due to the cutting of the potatoes!  I put the unit together and after figuring out how to Julienne, as I had not received instructions in the box or my DD threw them out last week, so I came online to their site to learn the proper adjustments, and found a lot of information online.  OK now unit is adjusted and there I go in above picture.  I had beautiful julienne slices except the end of the potato so I saved all those pieces and made them into a nice pile in the end and finished them off in slices!

I then took 1/4 of a large onion and julienned it as well, right into the potatoes! I love how it worked for this!

Guylian Chocolates Go With the Holidays! Review & Giveaway


I think by now those of you here that have been around awhile have noticed I review a lot of Chocolates!  My name is Joan and I am a Chocoholic!  I think if they had addiction meetings for Chocolate I would have to attend.

I have learned that there are health benefits to chocolate, especially Dark Chocolate and I have learned to like Dark Chocolate and now almost prefer it over Milk Chocolate.  Dark Chocolate contains anti-oxidents that help slow down the aging process. Dark Chocolate can also help reduce blood pressure, is good for your heart, and also helps lower your LDL (Bad Cholesterol).  Chocolate also increases endorphins, pleasure stimulating hormones *wink, contains serotonin, which acts as an anti-depressant, and just plain tastes good!!!

I have to share with you that Guylian sent me all pictured above and more. They sent all size boxes, from 2 to 6, to a full 24 box.  I started with the milk chocolate ones.  I must mention here that these chocolates are all shaped as different shells, and even though they have the same ingredients, to me each shape carried a different taste experience.  When you place this delightful chocolate in your mouth and let it melt, each seashell melted differently, adding the inside chocolate truffle filling, made with chocolate and hazelnut,melt  ever so slowly in your mouth, making the chocolate experience a wonderful taste experience, one you wont forget and one that will entice you to come back for more and more!

Guylian Shells & Seahorse

I will have to say that I fell in love with the extra dark chocolate Guylian and hoarded it at home so no one else would eat it LOL. It was so decadent and a real pleasurable experience to enjoy!

Guylian also sent me several chocolate bars, that were sugar free, which was awesome for my diabetic husband.  I had a taste of the milk chocolate sugar free and it was so good I cannot believe it was sugar free, and I really liked it, and so did hubby. He sat and ate the whole bar and the next day a dark bar! Instead of sugar they used Maltitol to sweeten the bars, making these safe for diabetics.

No Added Sugar Guylian Chocolate Bars

When exploring the site, it is interesting to read their recommendations for pairings with their chocolate. It is a whole new taste experience when enjoyed with different beverages from wine, beer, coffee, and tea! Check it out and find your favorite.

And last, but not least, I would be amiss if I did not share that Guylian is very active in Project Seahorse, helping to advance Marine Conservation by saving Seahorses, as saving Seahorses, saves the waters and marine life around them! To read more check out the link, as it is quite interesting to read!

Save the Seahorses!

I would like to thank Guylian Chocolates for sending me so much chocolate to try out and review. I am a new fan!  I also appreciate that Guylian has graciously offered their Chocolates for giveaway! Thank you and one of you is in for a real treat!
