Eversmoke Electronic Cigarettes Review

Tuesday, June 25, 2013
Disclosure: I received a product in exchange for my review. However, all opinions are my own.

I don' t smoke, but my husband does and to be honest it's annoying. Not only is it annoying, but it's is hurting his health. He has a lot of serious health problems, so when I got the opportunity to try Eversmoke Electronic Cigarettes, I was hoping for a miracle.

I received the EverSmoke Electronic Cigarette Basic Starter Kit which comes with 1 EverSmoke Electronic Cigarette Lithium Ion Standard Battery (Standard Capacity - choice of color & Automatic or Manual Switch) 1 Portable Wall Charger 1 USB Charger (allows you to charge from any computer USB port) 5 Nicotine Cartridges - Equals 5 Packs of Cigarettes (your choice of flavor & strength) and an Owner's Manual. Now, our kit did come with extra filters in several flavors including, coffee, peppermint, cherry, and menthol. My husband preferred the traditional flavor. He's old school and doesn't think cigarettes should taste like anything but a cigarette. The basic kit cost $79.99, but is on special right now for only $59.99.

It took a lot of prodding to get hubby to try the e-cig, but he finally gave in and tried it. Although he hasn't completely stopped smoking, the Eversmoke Electronic Cigarette does help when he goes places where smoking isn't allowed. My hubby has been smoking for over 40 years so this won't be an overnight process, but it is a start.

I give Eversmoke Electronic Cigarette 5 stars and would recommend this brand to anyone who is trying to stop smoking.

Divine Age Guardian Serum with Growth Factor Review

Tuesday, June 11, 2013

I'll be the first to admit since I've turned fifty, I've tried to turn back the hands of time and find the Fountain of Youth to no avail until I discovered a little bottle of Heaven called Divine Age Guardian Serum.

Divine Age Guardian Serum with Growth Factor is an intense wrinkle serum that features an unparalleled physiological combination of Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) and Amino Peptide. Each ingredient interacts synergistically, signaling cellular activity for renewed collagen, elastin and other skin proteins. In all, it smooths and reduces fine lines and wrinkles for a more vibrant, youthful appearance.

Incorporated with a cocktail of powerful anti-oxidants and the moisture binding Hyaluronic Acid, it also restores radiance and suppleness and boosts the skin's immune function to shield against future aging. The result: Divine Age Guardian Serum with Growth Factor gives the skin instant gratification and lasting anti-aging results. Non-comedogenic. Fragrance-free. Scientifically proven. 

When I started using Divine Age Guardian Serum, I wasn't sure what my results would be. Would this magic serum really turn back the hands of time? Had I discovered Heaven in a bottle? All I can say is yes! My face is smoother than it was a few months ago. I love the results I got from using Divine Age Guardian Serum with Growth Factor. Sure, there is no real Fountain of Youth, but Divine Age Guardian Serum with Growth Factor comes close! Divine Age Guardian Serum with Growth Factor retails for $160.00, but right now it's on sale for only $128.00 for 50 ml. and well worth the price!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

DNA Eye Serum Review

Monday, June 10, 2013
Disclosure: I received a product in exchange from DNA  for this review. All opinions are my own.

First, let me say I hate snakes, so of course I was a little leery of using anything remotely related to snake venom around my eyes! When I was first introduced to DNA Serum I had to get the thought of snakes out of my head. I have to say, once I started using DNA Serum, I was very pleased with the results. My crow's feet and wrinkles diminished. I'd rather use Syn®-Ake instead being injected with Botulinum toxins. 


DNA Serum draws much of its wrinkle-fighting power from its high concentration of Syn-Ake, which is a small peptide that mimics the activity of Waglerin 1, a polypeptide that is found in the venom of the Temple Viper, Tropidolaemus wagleri.
Clinical trials have shown that Syn-Ake is capable of reducing crow’s feet and other expression wrinkles in the face, and especially around the eyes and on the forehead, by inhibiting muscle contractions.
In a 28-day study that was performed on 45 volunteers, Syn-Ake was able to reduce wrinkles on participants’ foreheads by up to 52%.
If you're looking for an alternative to preventing wrinkles check out DNA Serum. DNA Serum. EACH 0.5 oz. SYRINGE CONTAINS A 45-60 DAY SUPPLY OF ANTI-WRINKLE EYE SERUM and retails for $109.95, but right now until June 30th, you can save 33% and order for only $72.95 with  SkinPro VIP savings.  Let me tell you, it's well worth it!

Geritol Review and Giveaway

Disclosure: I received free products from Geritol and  Robin Leedy & Associates in exchange for this review. However, all opinions are my own.

Geritol Multivitamin is the nutritional supplement trusted over time to help enhance vitality, both physically and mentally, by providing the “right balance” of essential vitamins and minerals. It contains close to 100% RDA (recommended daily allowance) of 12 essential vitamins and minerals including: Antioxidant vitamins A, C & E to strengthen your immune system, key B-vitamins for energy support and vitamin D to promote bone health.

Most of us have taken a mega-dosed supplement with more than the daily dietary allowance even though the United States Food and Drug Administration established a Recommended Daily Intake for all vitamins, minerals and other nutrients, with 100 percent being the maximum recommended dose per day. ….Geritol® Multivitamin meets these important standards.

If you're like me, you probably think of Geritol as your grandmother's tonic, well you'd be right! Geritol has been around for years and is a brand you can trust.  When I think about Geritol, I think about healthy. I really hadn't thought about Geritol being for me until I reached my fifties and really needed to start taking better care of myself and health. It's important to get back on track and Geritol wants to help you do just that with a chance to win a great prize pack. One lucky High Heels and Hot Flashes reader win will a “walks the walk prize” complete with two Geritol pedometers (one for you and one to share with a walking buddy), Geritol® Multivitamin product, and a $50 gift card toward a pair of New Balance sneakers.
