Nourishing Skin Oil - Stretch Mark Oil by B.O.N Skincare *Giveaway*

BON is known the world over for this magical blend of nourishing skin oil. If you're dealing with dry skin, which I most certainly am, this skin oil will be your best friend. It also helps skin that is stressed, skin that is showing fine lines or wrinkles, an uneven skin tone and it helps with your skin's elasticity. As I'm getting older, I'm noticing that my skin is not acting at all like it used to. My skin is thinner which has brought a whole other set of problems than just the showing of a few wrinkles and dry skin.  I really like that it has avocado, grape seed and rose hip oils but what really makes this one of my most loved products is what it doesn't have. It does not contain mineral oil, paraffins, BHT (which is a chemical that is added as a preservative), colorants, preservatives or harmful chemicals. In the world of me, what this product does not contain is huge! 

This product won me over from the time I saw the packaging. The design of the bottle along with the overall feel of it reminds me of a day spa. I love that it comes in a spray bottle. When dealing with any types of skin oil, this is a plus. Without a spray bottle, things tend to get messy. With BON, I don't have to worry about getting oil everywhere. The smell is heavenly. Again, think day spa. It's not a heavy perfumey smell like most oils that have fragrance added to it. It has a very subtle floral, clean smell to it. I was impressed with this fragrance because when I put this on my face, I don't want to be smelling something overpowering  all the time. Before I forget, I need to mention that I am allergic to most skin oils. Those bath oil beads that you put in the bath, really make me itch and it's so frustrating. I'm not sure exactly what it is that I'm allergic to but I was amazed that I did not have one single bad reaction. 

The way I used this skin oil was right after I got out of the bath, I toweled off and then added the oil on my legs, stomach and arms. It didn't have a greasy feel to it like most other skin oils I've tried. I did have to wait a few minutes though until it absorbed into my body. My skin was left feeling so soft and moisturized. It really was a night and day difference. As most moms out there, I have stretch marks on my lower abdomen. It doesn't matter what I try, they never go away. Thanks to BON, while they haven't completely disappeared, I am noticing that my stretch marks are starting to fade a bit. I'm really eager to see how they look when I'm done with this bottle. I will definitely be buying another bottle when this one is done.

Silicone Baking Cups by Kitopia

I am a baker at heart and whenever I have a little free time or if I'm blowing off steam, the kitchen is where I like to be. When I saw these silicone baking cups from Kitopia, I knew it was something I really needed to try. I hate coming home from the store only to realize that I forgot to get cupcake liners. It's one of those things that I just never remember. Kitopia has come up with a way to make sure that never happens and that you have moist and delicious cupcakes every time you bake. They have so many more uses than just cupcakes though too. You can use them to put toppings for sundaes in and your little ones can decorate their own sundaes. Jello shots for the adults would be awesome. The list goes on and on. 

These silicone baking liners come in a set of 6 vibrant colors and are able to stand on their own. The colors included are green, blue, pink, red, purple and yellow. If you don't happen to have a cupcake pan, that's ok because they can stand up on their own. They are of a really great quality and are durable. I've used them several times already and they still look like brand new. All you need to do is spray the inside with a nonstick spray and you're ready to get started. They are a really great product to reduce your carbon footprint on the environment. There are never any paper liners to throw away and since you don't have to throw them away, you also don't have to keep buying them which in turn saves you money.

I am really impressed that this order comes with a cupcake recipe book with 25 recipes for digital download. They're simple recipes, not recipes that you'll never use. If you receive your product and you find that it's not all you thought it would be, you have a 24 hour window to ask for a refund. I know you're going to love them though.

Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil by Nura Natural Skincare

I've never used a Rose Hip Oil before so I wasn't really sure what to expect but I was pleased with the results I got from using it for this past month. The first thing I should address was the packaging. A lot of times when I'm shipped products in glass containers (or some plastic ones as well) the results aren't very favorable for the packaging. There is no way that this oil is going to get loose. It is shipped in a green cardboard box which I will add with this review but inside the box you'll see that it is held together by more packaging. It isn't possible for it to get knocked around and break, unless you have a really upset postal worker throwing packages around.:) Then when I took the glass jar out of the package, it was very elegant and pretty. It really gives you a calming and relaxing feel.

Now for the results of the what it did with my skin. I found that my skin absorbed it very well. It felt very soft and supple. I had a youthful glow without it being shiny. My skin tone was more even and I didn't have any red blotches that seem to be breaking out on my face for no reason. I followed the directions on the box and massaged 3-4 drops into my just washed face twice a day. I did this for one month and am even getting compliments on my skin.  This oil is good for all skin types including sensitive skin and is great for rosacea and psoriasis. It's also great for scars of different types. And you'll notice any wrinkles you may have start to fade. The scent of the rose hip oil itself is sort of spicy or maybe woodsy might be a better term. I thought it might smell like a floral smell and it does, sort of, but whatever smell it is is very pleasing. It reminds me of maybe a unisex smell. This would be a great product for both men and women alike.

Slant Tip Tweezers by 42 Bees *GIVEAWAY*

If you are in need of a really cool pair of tweezers for your makeup bag, you don't have to look any further. I have had a lot of tweezers over my lifetime but nothing as nice as these.  I have tweezers everywhere in this house. The problem with the tweezers that keep going into the junk drawers throughout the house is that even when you pay a lot of money for them, they just end up being another pair of "cheap" tweezers. If I paid a lot for them, it's made of cheap quality. If they were inexpensive, then I should have known they wouldn't last very long anyway.  All of them at some point in time become hard to tweeze with. And truth be told, with your average pair of tweezers, they get used for splinters and who knows what else.

Now the Slant Tip Tweezers by 42 Bees are girly enough that no one wants to use them. That and I hid them in my makeup bag. The guys in the house think it's just another eyebrow comb or something for eyelashes. I do have to say that the Mr. in the house looked at me and said "Oh this would be awesome for my beard." Ummmmm no! They are mine, all mine! These tweezers are a high quality tweezer. They won't stop tweezing after a month or so. The comb on the end is a genius idea. What a great way to make sure you got all of the eyebrows you intended to get. They are great for grooming the eyebrows. I know the description says they are great for first aid as well but I'm saying No! Some of the other billion tweezers we have can go into the first aid kit, these are mine. I also loved the container they came in. It's sturdy and won't get lost in my makeup bag. I'm definitely buying some of these for Christmas stocking stuffers.

42 Bees was kind enough to offer one of my readers one of these tweezers for their very own. So comment on this post and I'll pick a winner by May 30, 2015.

Hyaluronic Acid Serum by Forlan Skincare

I have been using this Hyaluronic Acid Serum for approximately 20 days. Even if you don't have aging problems, this is one of the best serums I have put on my skin in quite a while. Yes, I am almost 43 (with new wrinkles popping up everyday) and live in a very dry, hot climate so my skin will be dryer than say a 20 year old living in a humid climate but I guarantee you, your skin will be thanking you for putting this serum on it. We did have quite a bit of rain in the past week so it tended to get more muggy outside than usual. When it does get like that, any serums plus the moisturizer I have on usually just says "I'm done" and melts off of my face. With the hyaluronic acid serum, the more muggy it got, the softer my skin got. It wasn't melting off my face but it seemed as though it was absorbing into my skin more. I loved that!

Hyaluronic Acid is huge on the skin care scene, but the reason I love it so much is the results I've had with anything with Hyaluronic Acid in it. It's like a miracle ingredient. It takes very few days to start seeing an improvement in your skin, so you know it's a rapidly working ingredient and it is very gentle on your skin. I use this serum a couple of times a day. First, in the morning right after I have cleaned my skin and then again at night after taking all of my makeup off and cleansing my skin again. Both times, I've put the serum on right before my moisturizer goes on. Just using it two times a day, I've noticed my skin already looks five years younger. You wouldn't think I'm out in the sun for a majority of my day. Something I do to cut down on steps with my makeup routine, is to mix the Hyaluronic Acid Serum with my moisturizer. I use equal parts of both. I find I don't have to wait for the serum to dry before adding moisturizer. I know that it only takes about a minute to dry but some mornings, it's just that kind of morning. I oversleep and you can bet your butt that is the morning I'm going to realize I'm out of coffee. You don't have to add it to your moisturizer, I just find it's a quick shortcut that works for me. It also doesn't leave that very shiny look on your face like some serums often do. It's more of a matte look. 
If you have acne, this is a fabulous product to have. It has witch hazel in it so it acts as a cleansing agent without drying out your skin. Here is a rundown of some of the ingredients it has in it:

Vitamin C - this is great for your skin tone, it helps to retain moisture and it improves your skin's elasticity.
Vitamin A - this is great for unclogging your pores. It boosts collagen and speeds up recovery of damage done to your skin by the sun.
Vitamin D - this is great for moisturizing your skin. It promotes rapid cell growth and reduces free radical damage.
Vitamin E - this is a natural skin conditioner as well as antioxidant. It keeps your skin hydrated and protected. 
Organic ingredients - these consist of aloe vera, witch hazel, and lavender oil. They help alleviate acne, psoriasis and rosacea as well as other skin conditions. 

I love Forlan Skincare because they really stand behind their products. If you aren't satisfied with your purchase, they will refund your money 100% with no questions asked. They also do not test their products on animals.

6 in 1 Stylus Pen by Rebelite

Being a two time computer degree recipient, you have to know I'm a techy kind of person. Not only that, but when I see products that are out of the norm, I jump right on that. I absolutely fell in love with the 6 in 1 Stylus Pen by Rebelite. It's jam packed with tools that every computer technician or heck, even someone who is on the go fixing anything for a living. First, let's run down what is all included in my new favorite toy. It comes with a stylus and really, who can't use that now that the world is rapidly increasing with on the go gadgets. With the iPad, tablets, iPhones and Androids, having a stylus with you is just beneficial and time saving. Then there is a small phillips head screwdriver, a flathead screwdriver, a level, a four inch ruler and finally a pen. Whew, that's a lot of stuff crammed into an object the size of a real pen. One of the coolest things to me though was it looks like a pencil! Yes, it's the small things in life that make me happy.

Now with the smaller screwdrivers like the philips head and the flathead, they usually don't last long with me but this one has. It is in the form of a bit so you can use one side, twist and pull up and replace it with the other screwdriver head. Genius huh? The level works great too and shows a consistent reading every time. I found out, my house is crooked! :( I love the little ruler part on the pen because it's always at the most idiotic times that I need a ruler and now I have one on me always. The pen works stupendously. It's not a bunch of liquid leaking out at a time. It has a very fluid even flow when I'm writing and when you run out of ink, you can just buy a refill. And the rubber on the stylus is a quality rubber. It doesn't give easily like a lot of cheaper stylus' do. I love it. 

I will definitely be getting more of these for stocking stuffers this Christmas. I would love to have one in each color as well but I must say that I love the yellow the best.

Bonnie Bear Plush Toy by Baby First Corporation

When you are a new parent, you want to do everything you can to ensure that your child is learning to the best of their ability and is safe and happy in their environment. Baby First has come up with a show called Bonnie Bear that you can watch on BabyFirstTV. You can access them on your iPad and let your little one be captivated by programming that is safe and makes sure they are using different parts of their brains. It's really cool to see and I only wish they had that when my little ones were small. But now, I have grandbabies!  Yes! 

The photo doesn't really do justice to what the plush toy really looks like. It's so cute. The mom in me went straight for the safety features. Did it have sewn in eyes or were they buttons? Were there any pieces that could easily come off? I am happy to say that this is one well made plush toy. The little helicopter thing at the top of her head is securely in place and this is the perfect bear for your baby right from birth. It is 12" tall so it is the perfect size for any little baby or toddler. And when they say she is freestanding, she really is. You can set her on her feet and she stays there. The best part is she is washable. In my opinion, this makes her the perfect gift for any little baby or toddler and their moms will thank you.

Super Bright Rim Lights by Speed Racer

I never knew that something cool like this existed for a bike. I got this for my teen kid who was all about putting them on his bike. We live in a major metropolitan area, so having something that shows a bit more visibility than normal is a plus in my book. I wasn't sure if, him being a teen, this was something he might like for his bike, but he really did. At night they looked really cool but I did have a few issues. I tried to install them on his bike as a surprise and with instructions that weren't very clear, I ended up leaving them for him to put on. I'm not that mechanically inclined and yes, this isn't very mechanical but it was just difficult enough for me to throw the towel in. I'm sure someone who is used to a product like this, it would be no problem to install them.

Having gone from no lights on his bike while riding at night, to these rim lights, there was more light as far as the safety feature. It might be a different story if it were for a younger child though. My son is a teenager so he knows to keep a look out for cars. If it were a younger child on a bike who is maybe concentrating on riding instead of looking where he is going, I don' think the light would shine bright enough for a driver to see until about ten feet in front of them.

Bottom Line? These are a fun novelty item to trick out a bike but am up in the air about a full on safety feature for a bike.

CortiSlim Burn by CortiSLIM

At first, I wasn't very sure about taking CortiSLIM Burn. I was taking my multivitamin, calcium pill, vitamin D3 and fish oil and then I added the CortiSLIM on top of that. I felt sick as a dog the first two days. I'm not saying that the CortiSLIM was to blame at all. The rest of the supplements I was taking, I had to take because they were doctor ordered. I told my doctor that I was taking CortiSLIM and she said if by the third day, I was still getting sick, to stop taking the fat burner. Keep in mind, this was just for about an hour after I took the medicine and I was working out, well it was physical therapy but I did keep my heart rate up which was what I was shooting for. By the third day, I felt fine. The doctor thought maybe I just had a virus or something because my immune system had been compromised. I was having to take take B12 shots to try to boost them.

Anyway, I just wanted to add that part in, just in case someone else was feeling nauseous while taking them. I'm inclined to believe it was a virus because I never have been someone who is sensitive to supplements or medicine.  After taking them for about two weeks, I noticed I was down by five pounds. The first week, I was on that scale every time I walked by it. After not seeing any difference, I gave up and told myself that I would only weigh myself at the end of the week.  I was super happy to see that with hard work, plenty of water and this awesome little supplement, I lost five pounds. I'm not sure what the healthy weight loss for two weeks is, but five pounds has got to fit in there somewhere right?

I know it says to take two capsules with breakfast with a glass of water and then two with lunch and a glass of water. You can really taste the raspberry ketones in the Cortislim Burn and I don't really like raspberry but I've heard nothing but great things about raspberry ketones. That being said, I would only take two in the morning and I still lost 5 pounds. So that right there tells you that it's a quality product that really works. As for the energy you get from the CortiSLIM, it really is a natural energy. I didn't get the shakes and it was nothing like the caffeine in energy drinks or coffee. It was an energy that just made you feel good. I also found that I was more calm and my concentration was great. It was so nice to be able to not be sidetracked by a million things throughout the day.

Bottom Line? I think this was a great product. Any adverse reactions I had stemmed from my personal dislikes such as the taste of raspberry and the virus I had.

Konjac Sponge by MY Konjac Sponge

Until recently, I never knew what a Konjac Sponge was. I had never been around anyone who used one and to be honest, I never knew such a thing existed. My only question is, why oh why  wasn't this little skin exfoliator brought to my attention at some point in my lifetime? These are really neat. As I get older, I'm noticing that my skin behaves differently than when I was younger. I'm getting an uneven skin tone, my skin in getting blotchy and it just looks dull at times. The only things that have remained the same are that I still break out in pimples at 43 just like when I was 13. And the dreaded T-zone. Around my nose and my nose is always oily where outside my T-zone, it's dry. I've always hated the feeling of having oily skin. It just feels gross.

My Konjac Sponge sells every type of Konjac sponge you can think of. The particular Konjac sponge that I got to try was  the all natural fiber bamboo charcoal facial sponge. This is a really cool little sponge. It will arrive in a plastic package that is sealed. It will seem very hard like a piece of charcoal almost. All you have to do is wet the sponge with water until it becomes very soft. I add a little bit of cleanser to it but you really don't need to. It is made to be used without cleanser. It will exfoliate your skin as well as cleanse it. After I am done using the sponge, I squeeze all of the excess water out and then hang it back up. A cool thing about this sponge is that it is totally biodegradable. There is no chance of it mildewing. It will harden back up again and over time, it will disintegrate. I advise that, purely for the results you will see with this sponge, you replace the sponge every three months or so. I love this sponge but I also would love to try some other types by this company as well. I love how smooth my skin looks, wrinkles seem to have lessened a tad and my skin has a healthy glow now. I use this sponge about 4 times a week. I don't feel like my skin is drying out at all, I just feel like it is reaching a perfect medium; not too oily and not too dry.

Bottom Line? Although I felt the results after the first time I used it, it wasn't until about two weeks later that I noticed how amazing my skin looked. I love this product and will definitely buy it again.

Omega 3 Supreme Fish Oil by Life and Food

I am a firm believer that everyone should be taking a fish oil supplement. With all the different brands of Omega-3, sometimes it's difficult to discern the quality products from the just okay products. This particular Omega-3 supplement is one of the best I've tried so far. I am basing that solely on the amazing results I've had with my cholesterol tests as well as how I feel. My high cholesterol is not caused by a poor diet, it is hereditary. Some people can control their cholesterol levels purely on what they eat. I don't have that option. I must take a cholesterol pill each day plus make sure I stay away from red meat and fatty foods. Along with my cholesterol medication and a balanced diet, the doctor has put me on 1 gram of fish four times a day. The fish oil can bring your cholesterol down to manageable levels. So please know that I take a lot of fish oil and know an excellent product when I see one.

I have super high cholesterol issues, my LDL is off the charts. It's nothing that I'm eating (because I try to stay away from foods that will raise my LDL numbers. Your LDL is the bad cholesterol in your body. If you have high LDL numbers, it means that you have a lot of plaque in your body. It's hard and can cause heart disease and stroke. Think of it as a brick wall. Now your HDL is your good cholesterol. Your aim is to have a good balance of HDL to LDL. The HDL makes sure that there are no blockages and allows your body to have good blood flow. Okay, so now the medical lesson is over, let's get to how this worked for me and what it can do for you.

Like I said previously, my doctor prescribed 1 gram of fish oil four times a day. I tried the pharmacy grade fish oil and ended up with fishy burps all day long. The prescribed fish oil was a HUGE pill and did nothing to take away the unpleasant aftertaste of the pill. I set the prescription medicine aside and tried Life and Food's fish oil. First, it's a huge bottle that contains 180 capsules. The bigger the bottle, for me, the better. Each fish oil supplement is 1,400 mg. which is higher than my prescribed fish oil. This supplement is so much better than what the doctor prescribed because it doesn't give you those nasty fishy burps. Each supplement is considerably smaller than most of the fish oil I've taken. Here is a picture so you can see for yourself.
As you can see, it's not a horse pill like most and it has a higher concentration of just about everything jam packed into a little pill. I switched from my prescribed fish oil to Life and Food's Omega 3 for obvious reasons and I actually feel better than I did taking the prescription. Fish Oil does so many good things for your body. Of course I take it for my cholesterol but it's also good for improving joint health, reduce stress and improves you mental, physical and emotional well being. We also give fish oil to our dogs and they absolutely love it. Their coats are very shiny all the time. Our oldest dog benefits the most in that it helps her to get around a better.

I highly recommend the Omega 3 Supreme Fish Oil by Life and Food.  It's great for so many things. You really will tell a difference fairly quickly to assure you it is doing all it is supposed to be doing.

Paracord Survival Bracelet by Legend

Our family is a very outdoorsy sort of family. Our interests lie in prepping, hunting, fishing, hiking, sailing .... well you get the picture. When you are an avid outdoorsman, it's only responsible to plan for any emergency you can think of. We have multiple kinds of paracord survival bracelets and were excited to try this particular one by Legend. Some of our paracord survival bracelets have firestarters in them, this particular one does not. In this instance, that's a very good thing because my stepson won the contest on who was going to get to keep it. If you give that 17 year old a firestarter, he's going to use it whether he needs to or not. Ha ha This one is perfect for him because I want to know he has paracord to make a split or heck, even just to tie up fish to bring to camp. Like I said, we do have multiple bracelets that do multiple things. We like to keep the ones with firestarters in our bug out bags, tackle boxes or with our survival gear or first aid kits. You never know when you're going to need one.

I do need to say one thing though in case you think this one size fits all really does fit all. My husband is about 230 pounds. The bracelet did not snap around his wrist (which was why the son got it instead). It was going to pinch his skin because it was such a snug fit. I don' t want you getting on the wrong foot with the company because you think they aren't being truthful. In truth, everyone is different. I would simply ask the question on Amazon about the length of the paracord bracelet. I'm sure if that one doesn't fit, they have another one that might. Take the measurement of the wrist that you are trying to buy the bracelet for and have that measurement ready. This really is a quality survival bracelet and one of the best I've seen out of all that we've got. I think it's really going to do the trick for you.

Phytoceramides Capsules (Anti-Aging supplements) by TrueSol Nutrition

I'm usually always on the lookout for the next big supplement to keep my body feeling and looking great.  Some do great while some others don't do very well at all. I've been taking these supplements for about 3 weeks and I do notice a difference in how I look and feel. I know this supplement is meant for anti-aging but I feel as though I have more energy now. I'm not sure if it is a vitamin or mineral that I'm lacking in my diet but I feel pretty good.

My skin has a more youthful glow to it now. Most of the time, I have to drink tons of water for my skin to feel this hydrated. Now I can just take one veggie capsule and I don't have to worry about it until the next day. I do still drink plenty of water with it but we live in such a very dry climate that it's insane how much water we have to drink just to stay hydrated. Taking one supplement along with the water, I've noticed my fingernails growing stronger, my hair is actually growing at a faster rate and it's not breaking off like it usually does. 

Living in the west, the sun and chemicals are harsh on my skin. I like that I'm doing something great for my skin, hair and my well being in general. Give this supplement a try, I know you will love it. You get thirty vitamin supplements in this container, so that will be a months worth. I noticed changes as far as my skin, nails and hair as soon as two weeks but in my energy levels within two days.

Fruit Acid Peel by Refresh Skin Therapy

I have never in my life had a peel either professionally or at home. So I wasn't sure what to expect. I saw the words "gel peel" and thought it might be some sort of peel off mask. Yeah, don't laugh. I didn't know, but I was about to get an education through the physical hands on project I was about to undertake.

I am getting older and as I am, I can almost see a new change in my skin tone each day. I don' t like the changes that are happening and I swear if it's the last thing I do, I'm going down swinging in my fight against mother nature and father time. I'm so glad I got the product because I really wasn't expecting the amazing results that I've seen. Keep in mind, I've used this product about three times a week for about two weeks. A short amount of time yes but enough time to know that it's working. 

My skin tone is now more even. Where I had pigmentation before, it's going away! I don't like age spots but now I don't even have to worry about it anymore. I have used Konjac sponges before but never Konjac acid. I know I've heard good things about it but never knew exactly what it did. For those of you like me, it is a natural skin brightener. Not that it will lighten your skin color but that your face will have such an amazing youthful glow. Mine does now. This product is also great for rosacea and for psoriasis. It is an exfoliant and is not harmful. I never experienced any redness or irritation whatsoever. 

I wanted to see if it would help my hands as I can tell each day that my age is now showing in my hands, especially when I don't drink enough water. My hands have a youthful glow to them now too. I know I still need to rehydrate by drinking plenty of water but this helps as well. I always look for products made in the USA, and this fruit acid peel is 100% made in the USA. This is also a vegan product and is not tested on animals.

Lingerie Bags (Set of 4) by Fuse Essentials

I love lingerie bags. They can be used for so much more than just lingerie. If you have something you're worried might get torn up in the washer or dryer, throw it in the bag. If you're worried about socks being lost, throw it in the bag. And of course, with those bras, without the bags, they get snagged and the clasps on the back get destroyed. You can't fix them so you end up throwing them away. Instead of throwing them away, yes ..... throw it in the bag. By now you're probably singing a popular song lol.

I love these particular lingerie bags by Fuse Essentials. They come in a set of four: one small, one medium and two large. The small bags can fit a couple of tank tops or a few pair of socks or a bra. The medium are big as well but the large fit a lot of things in them.  Another great use for them that most people wouldn't think of is putting babies toys in them or if you have more than one child, it would be ideal to use for separating clothes in a diaper bag. They would even be awesome for putting dirty baby or toddler clothes. Just take them out of the diaper bag and throw them in the washer. 

A lot of lingerie bags don't have an elastic cover over the zipper which allows them to become unzipped in the washer or dryer. These particular bags do. I also love the pink zipper. The mesh is high quality which allows water and detergent in to clean the garments. When you purchase these lingerie bags, you don't have to worry, your investment in protected in the form of a money back guarantee.

LED Headlamp Combo Set by Clearviewlight

My husband is an avid sportsman, a prepper and uses headlamps for work so I thought this would be perfect for him. When it came in, it seemed on the small side, compared to the headlamps he wears now. But let me just tell you that this sucker is bright! It is 100 lumen and will shine for 200 feet ahead of you. It's super light at 3.5 oz. and is very comfortable. It is adjustable so that both children and adults can both wear it comfortably. 

The LED headlamp has four settings. There is a high beam, low beam an red light and a strobe feature. Another great feature is that it is water resistant. That really comes in handy while doing fix it jobs around the house or if you're having to change a tire in the dark on a rainy night. This would be an excellent product to put in emergency kit in your car. 

One thing to keep in mind is you need two different types of batteries. The headlight itself takes AAA batteries (we always use rechargeables). The smaller light takes a round battery like a watch would. I think this headlamp would be perfect in so many emergency preparedness bags. Throw it in your backpack when hiking just in case you get caught after dark. Put it in your vehicle, your camping gear, your garage. The list goes on and on for places where you could possible take it.

I really liked this headlamp and so did my husband.
