Thursday, October 11 Skull Chill & SnackTime Review

by, Life According To GreenVics.  18oz Skull Chiller

Like my new Skull Chiller Cup from! For Halloween!! And, every day after! Momma has a new cup for her drinks!  I was sent these products from CoolGearInc to test & review.

SnackTime Drink/Snack Container 2in1

What is great about CoolGearInc. is theres something for everyone in the family. We ventured forth to test the  Skull Chiller, and my toddler the SnackTime at the park!  

Having  these containers made SnackTime convenient, and budget friendly on the wallet. Instead of having to stop, and pick up snacks all I had to do was fill the bottom of the Snack Time Container with what Sy likes to eat, and the top with his favorite drink.  It also fits perfectly in  the cars cup holder. 

Fits  In The Cars Cup Holders! 

There is a straw in the SippyCup! Which is terrific for me right now because that's my toddlers favorite kind of cup. They also are just $5.99. You get the Cup, and Snack container that twists onto each other.  

Mommies Chill, and Babies SnackTime

  • BPA Free 
  • Twist-off Snack Containers
  • Top Drink Container Insulated W/Non-toxic Gel To Keep Drinks Cold
  • Bottom Container Keeps Snacks Fresh 
  • Flip-top Sipper For No Spills

Skull Chill($7.99):

  • BPA Free 
  • Double Wall Construction 
  • Non-Toxic Insulated Gel To Keep Drinks Cold
  • Top Shelf Dishwasher Safe

Here's an Easy Recipe I make for Iced Coffee.  I don't like my Iced Coffee to be overpowered by things, so I keep it simple. 

Almond Milk
Cold Coffee
Sugar/Splenda/Whatever Sweetner You Use
Fill The Cup With Ice

If you use Creamer, you can use that instead of Milk. I use more Coffee than anything. Love me some Dark Roast. This Momma needs her Caffeine.

We had a blast at the park.  

Conclusion: These Cups were Fun, Playful, and Spill proof. I also believe for the convenience of the products offered, they are well worth the price. I personally enjoy things that can be used for many things. Really, I'm for anything that makes life easier. These products did just that.

Wednesday, October 10 Candy Review

by Life According To GreenVics.

How delicious do these Peanut Butter Cups look!?  They'd be great for Halloween!

UnReal Candy 77, Chocolate Peanut Butter

What I've learned about GetUnReal Candy is Unreal = Unjunked.  That means the candy is made with,

  • No Artificial Ingredients
  • No Corn Syrup
  • No  Partially Hydrogenated Oil
  • No GMOs
  • No Preservatives
  • Low Glycemic Index
My favorite are the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups: Which are only 190 Calories, and 11G of Sugar, which is HALF of what other Peanut Butter Cups are. The chocolates taste, and texture were right on for what I enjoy in my chocolate candy. Smooth, and the way chocolate should taste. The combination of the smooth chocolate, and no artificial ingredients in the peanut butter didn't taste like health food, but just as chocolate & peanut butter should taste together.

Whatever your sweet tooth may be, Unreal has created  lower calories, lower sugar, and natural candy as an alternative to candies we are used to eating.  To me, as long as the candy tastes good, has chocolate that melts in my mouth, and it's something I enjoy as a treat.  Unreal did that for me.  If you're afraid to try it because you think its "too healthy" for you.. Don't think that way.  Think, it hasn't cut out the Sugar, It's just used natural ingredients, and not as much sugar.  I really think people should give it a chance.

The Candy Shelled Chocolates with, and without peanuts were delicious, from the Crunch of the Shell, to the Sweet Chocolate within.  Even The Caramel with, and without peanuts for the Chocolate Caramel Nougets had the perfect ratio of Caramel/Chocolate/Nouget.  

Candy does not have to be made with artificial ingrediants to taste good, and UnReal has proved that to me. It also satisfied my sweet tooth, without making me want to take a bunch of Cinnamon Pills to regulate my sugar intake.  It's a great thing that the Candy has a low glycemic index.  

Is this candy good?  Yes.

Would I give this candy to my family, and friends? I would. These will be perfect for Parties/Holidays/Treats, even For Trick Or Treating.

Is it easy to find this candy in store? Yes!! A lot of  Stores carry UnReal Candy. Up to 30,000+ stores in the United States alone!  I've seen CVS has them buy1get1 free before, and other stores ranging from $.50 to $1.50.

I received this candy for free, for my opinion, honest opinion.  Receiving these 5 candies for free did not sway my opinion, it however was nice to try them!  I've been wanting to try them since I saw the packaging. The packaging has a very unique, distinct logo, that looks like something you'd see on a computer board.  Like a microchip.  That was pretty cool.  It's even embedded into the chocolate.  I'm a sucker for the details.

Noxicare All Natural Topical Pain Cream Review & Giveaway

Noxicare Review & Giveaway, by Life According To GreenVics:

Noxicare is an All Natural Topical Pain Relief Cream made with Turmeric, Willow Bark, Ginger, Rosemary Extract, Holy Basil, Boswellia Extract, and Alpha Lipoic Acids. Meaning, packed full of Natural remedies for pain relief, anti-inflammatory, antioxidants, antibacterial, antiviral, and some of the herbs, help other herbs improve effectiveness when used together.

Noxicare Topical Pain Relief Cream
This post is a little personal, and it deals with pain. To me, pain is as personal as you can get.  I don't like to admit when I hurt,  thou every step I take I'm in pain. I'm going to share photos of my Left leg that has the Open Reduction Internal Fixature that starts at my tibia plateau, and is drilled by pins with rods down my tibia. I also have cadavers at my knee.

My Left leg ORIF, The Reason I need pain relief.

I suffer from bone, and nerve pain. Personally, after trying different pain/nerve meds like neurton, lyrica, etc It just made me more sore, and swollen. I took myself off those medications soon after the internal metal was placed (I had External drilled from thigh to ankle first,) and started taking Fish Oils. I'm always trying to find better alternatives than medications that can cause worse side effects than the pain itself.

I do believe in hot baths/massaging the area, and "babying" it when it is "marshmellow" foot. I'll try just about any cream/balm that can give some kind of relief. Especially if it's All Natural. It's one of those WHY NOT try it? Never know if it'll help a little bit, or at least help with the tenderness around the muscles. Sometimes that's the worse, once it swells, and nothing I do will get it down ( I watch salt intake, I eat inflammatory foods,) just sometimes nothing helps.

Rubbing Noxicare In Around Scar Tissue

Winter months topical pain cream like Noxicare is something I have to use. The arctic blast cold, along with metal in my leg, it honestly hurts to the bone. I've been using the Noxicare for a few weeks now. It does relieve the muscle pain on me a little. Tho, keep into consideration, I will always feel pain. I'm not trying to be depressing, I'm just being honest. It did however cut down on some of that nerve pain for me. This, along with the hot baths, and followed by massages, does feel wonderful. For me, that's something, and worth using.

Scent: It's non scented, no medicated smell like some pain relief creams.

Sensation: It did feel hot, but not a bad heat.  The warmth felt good on my cold leg.

Texture:  Thick Consistency, little goes a long way.

Conclusion:  Noxicare did relieve some of my Nerve Pain.
Bone/Nerve Pain hurts. I'm all for anything Naturally that can relieve it.
