Review: anil

I love this glove! My cat really likes the softer bristles on it, and I can brush her fur in either direction (which removes more of her hair) without pulling on it/irritating her. SPRAY THE SILICON SIDE WITH WATER FIRST! I actually like to spray it, then shake the excess water off, then brush my cat, peel the hair off, and start again once the water has been absorbed.

Comparing the photos above quickly reveals the difference between xenvo premium quality lenses and cheap, low-quality alternatives.Barrel distortion – cheap wide-angle lenses will distort your photos, giving a warped, fisheye appearance; straight lines appear curved.Poor quality construction and design of cheap wide-angle lenses results in unwanted darkening of corners in photos.

Review: J

Was going back and forth trying to decide if I should buy this lens kit or a different highly rated one listed on here. I was sold on the xenvo when I compared the customer images for other lens kits and this one. I bought this for an upcoming vacation and I think this will work wonderfully. The carrying kit fits easily into my carry-on bag and the lenses themselves were intuitive and user-friendly. I appreciated the free video tutorials that came with it too.

Not very stackable, do not nest. I should have read the reviews more thoroughly before I bought these. I can only stack four bowls at a time. What a pain! Takes up too much room in my cabinet.

Four of these bowls take up more space than 12 other bowls stacked. More likely to use these as mixing or storage bowls, kinda big for cereal bowls. Read Full Review…

Review: Marcia

My daughter like these, and we have found that the crayola pip squeaks washable markers work just the same as the ones that come in the set, so we have more color options. I will say that I sometimes have to use a tiny bit of shout and dawn dish soap to get them back to white. I recommend washing them as soon as your kiddo says you can, and put down a towel or something because if your child drops them while the marker is wet, it’s a bit of a mess.

I actually bought this as a father’s day gift for my monopoly obsessed husband this year. It was a hit to say the least! Now you get to cheat like you’ve always done anyways, but now you’re rewarded! The game is a lot shorter since there are only hotels and no houses.

There seems to be fewer spaces to land on as well. In all, this game is a lot more fun and shorter. I would only suggest clear rules on those who accidentally cheat. In the meantime so avoid arguments in my house, we charge $100 for each mistake. This game will have your party paranoid hahaha!

This is only my initial impression based on limited usage after just receiving the DelGuard pencil. I really love this pencil.

I have always been bothered by how easily the lead would break with other mechanical pencils, but the DelGuard works exactly as advertised. Under heavy pressure the pencil adjusts to prevent breakage. If the pencil holds up with usage, then it will be a sure winner.

You have option of sticking it on the wall or drill nails into the wall for a more permanent fixture. If there’s a way to securely fix it on my front door, I could hang it there to scare off prolestyzing people of some faiths.

Even smaller than I expected. A standard Bubba Burger hangs over the sides. Won’t cook a frozen burger but as long as it’s not frozen it will cook the burger in 6 minutes. Nowhere for grease to go so best to put paper towels under the cooker. Otherwise you will have grease everywhere. But overall for the price it is worth the price.

So I read that someone else used it as more of a mask and added some heat…. I came up with my own spin for even more shine and softness. What I do is wash my hair, leave it unconditioned, get out of the shower and put this conditioner on my hair (but not at the roots or close to the scalp). I also pour a half dollar size portion of chi keratin silk infusion (gray bottle with gold lettering) and go over the same area.

This is a decent iron – it does the job adequately. It’s really good at letting off steam, but the tank is a little awkward to fill. There are a lot of temperature options, and you can turn the dial all the way to the right to shut it off. I would say it’s a medium weight. I prefer heavier irons because they get out wrinkles better in my opinion. The water spray button was tough at first. When I got the iron, I thought it was broken.

35. The Negg Boiled Egg Peeler White

Negg Boiled Egg Peeler White

Add 1/4 cup (Negg capful) of water to the Negg. Add your hard-boiled egg and snap on the top cap. Now you’re ready to slip the egg out of its shell. SHAKE the Negg up and down with enough force so that the egg strikes the caps. Remember to take it a little easy, or you will end up with a slushy mess complete with shells. Shake until you feel the shell begin to “soften” – approximately 4 to 12 times. Timing will vary. The body is clear so you can watch the progress. When you see the white of the egg appear, you’re done. Mission Accomplished. The egg will then slip out of its shell.

Review: Kae

I completely skeptical the first time I bought this. We purchased it first on Grommet and tried it out. I was amazed. Put the right amount of water in, drop in your hard boiled egg, close the lid, and shake. It’s that easy. Most of the time the shell just slides right off as you are taking the egg out of the container.

Kootek Laptop Cooling Pad

To use the Negg, add 1/4 cup (Negg capful) of water to it along with your hard-boiled egg. Secure the top cap and shake the Negg up and down with enough force for the egg to strike the caps. Be cautious not to shake too vigorously to avoid a messy result. Continue shaking until you feel the eggshell start to “soften,” usually about 4 to 12 times.

Keep an eye on the progress through the clear body. Once you see the white of the egg, it’s ready. The egg will then easily come out of its shell. In rare cases with very fresh eggs, you might need to break the membrane after shaking to release the shell, although this is not typical.

Review: David Spellman

This is a cheap (er…inexpensive) non-adjustable iPhone stand. The angle is good, height is good, and it’ll probably outlast the phone. There’s no “face recognition” on the stand, of course, but the iPhone’s angle (if you’re looking at it on a standard desk from a seated position) is good enough to activate via facial recognition built into the iPhone. I’m not sure what “adhesion” would refer to; there’s none of that, either.

I have had this for a few months and it works great. I like the magnet feature that allows me to just stick it to my stove. I have also had the chance to test the waterproofing (the reason I chose this one) and so far it works fine. It’s survived a few washes, and the deadly dip that killed my last thermometer.

Review: Mackenzie

Wow! This works so well and doesn’t nick or cut any sensitive bits at all. I’ve never seen a razor cut through hair so easily, it cuts through thick hair, long hair, short hairs, all hairs, like a lawnmower (I guess the name is very accurate). If I ever have a Brittany Spears 2007 level breakdown, I will be stealing this from my husband to shave my head.

Review: Kathy

This was ordered as a replacement for AC adapter for a Halo charger I had. The first adapter began to fray at the point where the wire attached to the transformer. The AC adapters are specific to the charger model. It’s easy to mistake the models because they look the same at first look, but each has different features specific to that model. So far, I am pleased and the item was well packaged for shipping.
