REVIEW -- Booty Fresh Personal Spray


Booty Fresh Personal Spray

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
YES, THIS IS A SPRAY FOR YOUR BUM, AND HERE'S THE DEAL:
Booty Fresh™ is not a deodorant spray, cologne, or perfume. Booty Fresh™ neutralizes odor-causing bacteria absorbed under the skin of the **** and surrounding area. After it’s rinsed off, it leaves your bootay smelling like... well... nothing! It‘s no joke! Booty Fresh™ deodorizes when soaps and wipes fail. Yes, it really, really works.

THE MOST AMAZING SPRAY FOR YOUR BUM: With a full application of Booty Fresh, you won't notice a scent from offending areas for up to two weeks or longer.

BEYOND HYGENE: Get's Where Soaps, Wipes, and Toilet Paper Can't. Regular washing can not remove everything permeating the skin. In fact, toilet paper is a huge cause of a "permanent" odor down there.

DATING | EXOTIC TRIPS | CAMPING: Spray on Booty Fresh for that extra boost of freshness where you’ll need it most. Complete confidence that you are clean and sexy wherever you are!

UNSCENTED & EXTRA SOOTHING: Booty Fresh is made with soothing aloe vera & leaves your bum smelling like... well... nothing! That part is for you to decide.

ALL NATURAL & SAFE: Safe to spray in mouth - safe to swallow (yuck! - we DO NOT recommend) – 4oz Spray –Made in the USA – 120 Uses

IN OTHER WORDS:
This will give you a totally stink-free-bum (or whatever your word for it is), even if nothing else seems has worked. I don't know how to say it any other way: It Totally Works.
Having CP, I worry about having body odor due to not being able to clean that well. I try to clean the best I can with scented baby wipes, but I still am concerned with it.

So, I mentally did a happy dance of joy when I was approved for Booty Fresh.

I used it twice and I threw nearly the entire bottle away.

First off, the outer bag it came in looked wet, so I think some of it may have leaked during shipping. It didn't feel like much had leaked out, so I didn't bother filing a claim.

But what made me throw out the nearly-full bottle is the fact that I developed bright red WELTS on my nether regions within hours of use. These welts were large, fiery red, very hot to the touch and PAINFUL. Seriously, it felt like someone had a welding torch to my backdoor. I had to go commando for a few days, because underwear HURT.

Now, I am normally NOT allergic to the two main ingredients in this, Aloe Vera and Hydrogen Peroxide, I use hydrogen peroxide on any cuts I get and I have used aloe vera lotions. But I do think I am allergic to the mixture.

Another thing I had trouble with, and what I think most disabled people will have trouble with is the application of this. I had to have my FH spray it onto me. While he's used to seeing me naked, I felt very embarrassed and self-conscious about needing help with this.

This is available from Amazon for $29.95.

FINAL THOUGHTS
It's good in theory, but I was allergic to it.

WOULD RECOMMEND: No

REVIEW -- Clinere Ear Cleaners


Clinere Ear Cleaners

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
Clinere™ Ear Cleaners help scoop, scrape and extract the wax from this area, resulting in effective ear cleaning. Clinere™ Plastic Ear Cleaners have dual purpose ends for flexible ear cleaning & ear-itch relief! Similar to a physician's tool but designed to be more flexible and bendable for use by consumers!
I tend to get water into my ears, whether it's through just taking a shower or drooling into my ears while I sleep. I try to keep my ears clear of wetness, but it's not always easy.

Back at the end of February and the beginning of March, I had a severe ear wax issue. I had taken a shower and the shampoo slid off my head and directly into my ear canal. I tried rinsing it out, and thought I had gotten it all out. But some worked its way down deep into the canal, causing a blockage. After that, it started becoming VERY painful, to the point of giving me migraine headaches and running on 1-2 hours of sleep a night. Ibuprofen and Tylenol became my BFFs that week.

On March 4th, While I was reading my Kindle, the problem came to a head. Not to gross anyone out, but I had a really full feeling in the opening, and when I gently scratched it, I pulled out a HUGE chunk of wax. After I scratched the chunk of wax out, Mama Melissa took cotton swabs and proceeded to clean the wax out. Click the button below to see what she removed from my ear.


After that, I was determined to keep my ears clean of wax. This is where Clinere Ear Cleaners come in handy.


^^what I received^^


^^stock photos of the tips^^

There are two different tips, a scoop and a 'brush' style tip. The brush tip is to loosen and exfoliate the wax, while the scoop collects the loosened wax.

The website offers an infographic to show the proper way to use them.


While these are good in theory, I didn't find them effective for wax removal. I had wax in my right ear that the scoop didn't even touch, but a cotton swab did. The brush tip does work for minor itches.

I'm afraid disabled people are going to have a extremely hard time using these properly. I constantly was going past the 'Stop Line' with these. Even when I used major caution, I was going past the line. If someone has severely unstable hands, they could easily puncture their ear drum.

If you'd like to try these for yourself, visit www.clinere.com for more info.

FINAL THOUGHTS
Good in theory, but not for someone disabled
STARS:
WOULD RECOMMEND: Probably not.

REVIEW -- Ultra Flex Knee Brace & Ankle Support


Ultra Flex Knee Brace & Ankle Support

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
The best way to solve any problem is to avoid having it in the first place!
For that matter, Ultra Flex Athletics launched a package very helpful for men, woman, children that practice all kinds of sports or have problems walking.Both knee brace and ankle brace that comes as a BONUS, were created with the highest standards in the industry and the examinations that tested this product are more than satisfied with what UFA achieved.
People who play Football, Basketball, Volleyball, Tennis, Wrestling, CrossFit, Golf, Bowling, Fencing, Bicycle Riding, and Soccer are expected to make a lot of fast and dangerous moves during these sports that can provoke injuries.Also our products are recommended to be used by runners, people who go to the gym, lift weights or go to fitness programs.
This products can be used also as a recovery method after knee/ankle surgeries because it relieves knee pain, strains and arthritis. Works best for meniscus tear, arthritis, acl tear and tendonitis. The knee brace combines the mechanical effect of supporting the muscles and ligaments and the heating effect, which causes high blood flow and helps to recover damaged tissues.
Our features:
» silicone strips that will warm up your muscles and prevent slipping
» enforced trim that guarantees integrity at high tension and a long life span
» 80% of neoprene that waterproofs the brace, firmly compresses your knee and covers splints.
» adjustable sizes to provide the best possible grip.
» open patella design will reduce the pressure on the knee without compromising the compression supplied to the muscle area.
My CP affects my lower half the most. My hips downward are the main parts of my body affected. This caused me to be diagnosed with arthritis at age 15. I went to my family doctor for a PIAA physical (for Football Cheerleading tryouts) and walked out with the diagnosis. My family doctor still signed the physical papers, giving me medical clearance and Montrose Area Schools did let me tryout, but I did not make the squad.

But if I had never wanted to tryout for cheerleading (or any kind of high school sports), I may have never known I had arthritis.

About 2 years later... The summer of my HS graduation, I took a tumble backwards from our porch steps and cracked my head on the concrete slabs. I went to the ER and was just checked out. I was fine, but my family doctor (who was on ER duty that day) told me that my knee needed more strength and support.

Now why did I tell you those two stories? Because they sort of tie in with this review. If I had the Ultra Flex Knee Brace at that time, I may not have had arthritis to the level I did when I was diagnosed, and I may have not taken the tumble I did because my knee gave out.

I ignored it for quite a while... I didn't want to 'look stupid' and wear a knee brace.


^^The outer box of the braces^^


^^The braces^^

What I like about this brace, compared to the one I had from my family doctor, is the fact that it has 3 'straps,' I feel it gives more support than the ones with just 2 straps.


I wore this brace one night when our family went to out to dinner and had to do errands afterwards. My knee felt quite supported and it didn't feel like it was going to 'buckle' or 'give out' while walking around Walmart and Wegman's.

I don't have ankle problems, so I really can't say how well the brace will work. Honestly, it feels kind of flimsy, but I don't think it's supposed to be an actual brace as much as light support. If I needed tight support, I'd rather wrap my ankle with a elastic bandage. I think the elastic bandage would provide more support than the ankle support.

The only 'bad' thing about this brace is how sweaty my knee and leg got while using it. It did not slip or slide, but my leg was extremely damp when I removed it.

I did have trouble putting the knee brace on by myself. I could not get the straps tight enough by myself, so I did have to have Mama Melissa help me get the straps tight and secure. So, disabled people will need assistance to get this on correctly.

This set is available from Amazon for $35.45.

FINAL THOUGHTS
I really like the support it gives; I just wish my leg didn't get so sweaty while wearing it.

REVIEW -- Leak-Control Underwear for Men and Women


Leak-Control Underwear for Men and Women

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
Do you deal with a few surprises here and there? Do you ever leak a little or have uh-oh moments? Wearever’s stylish and comfortable underwear styles tackle life’s surprises so you can live to the fullest with confidence.

Wearever Women's and Men's Underwear: Choose Wearever Underwear for maximum protection and reusability for an active lifestyle at any age. Our selection of absorbent male and female undergarments feature sewn-in Unique-Dri™ pads that trap liquid and are treated with odor reducing Agion™ antimicrobial fibers. Whether you have minor leaks or major ones from working out, laughing, or chasing children or grandchildren, these underwear help you feel protected and comfortable. Most importantly, these underwear help maintain your dignity since they look and feel just like traditional underwear! Say goodbye to disposable pads and adult diapers once and for all. Wearever offers a variety of styles to meet every preference and come with light, moderate and heavy absorbency options depending on what you need. They are also more environmentally friendly contributing zero waste per year compared to more than 1,100 to 1,500 adult diapers sent to landfills per person. They're less expensive, saving the average user about $500 a year over the cost for disposables since you can wash and re-use Wearever products hundreds of times. What are you waiting for? Make the switch today!
As I get older, the need for incontinence underwear grows. My legs just don't work as quickly as they used to, so I can't always make it to the bathroom in time. Then I end up in a crying jag because I'm embarrassed that I tinkled in my pants.

But buying Always Discreet and/or Depend Silhouette undergarments can be expensive, especially if you only get a one time use out of each pair. Couple that with latex allergies (which I sadly have) and you're literally throwing your money away.

Because I'm still in the reproductive years, using my feminine pads as 'leak shields' takes them away from the times I really will need them.

This is why I LOVE Wearever's panty line. They look and feel like real undies. They are made of normal 'undies' fabrics, like cotton, nylon and lace, so there's no chance of a latex reaction.

This is my third pair of Wearever panties that I've been fortunate enough to receive for review (As of this writing, I still owe a review for my 2nd pair) and this time, I chose the Cotton Straight Leg Incontinence Panty.


^^stock photo of the style I chose^^

What I like about these is that they resemble mens' boxer briefs. I tend to get sore and raw in the leg creases from the elastic bands rubbing against my skin due to the way I walk. These don't rub or bind against my legs, letting me be pain free.

The pad in the crotch is VERY absorbent, but I would have liked some sort of 'barrier' between the pad and the outside of the panties. I had a bit of a leakage problem this past week and the wetness went right through the pad into my pants. I didn't think I tinkled a large amount, but this kind of defeated the purpose of wearing the undies to stop my clothes from being soaked with urine.

Disabled people shouldn't have a problem with these. As long as a disabled person can put underwear on by themselves, they will be able to use these undies just fine.

Wearever will donate $1 for every single pair, $1 for three-pack and $1 for six-pack purchases from the Wearever men's and women’s underwear lines between June 1 and 30 to the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation. Wearever is partnering with the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation to increase education and advocacy for the disease and to provide support to those with MS that experience urinary incontinence. According to many studies, incontinence occurs in at least 80 percent of people with MS.

Throughout the month of June 2015, Wearever will donate $1 for single pairs, and $1 for three-pack and $1 for six-pack purchases of its men and women's underwear back to the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation. This includes all sizes, styles, colors and purchases in singles, three-packs and six-packs from the Wearever men and women's underwear lines. To learn more, visit www.WeareverIncontinence.com.

FINAL THOUGHTS
I love Wearever underwear. I feel more confident that any accidents I may have while wearing them will not be known.

REVIEW -- Gorton's Smart & Crunchy Fish Products

Gorton's Smart & Crunchy Fish Products

Seafood is one of my favorite foods. My favorites are shrimp and Tuna fish.

I really never was a fish stick eater, even as a child. But when Gorton's offered me the chance to try their new Smart & Crunchy™ fish products for free, I jumped at the chance.

On the day I went shopping, I was not able to get both varieties of the Smart & Crunchy products. However, I was lucky enough to hit a sale where the Gorton's Grilled Fillets were buy one get one, so with the 2 free items coupons, I was able to get 3 items for free. Let's take a look at the 3 products I 'bought.'

SMART & CRUNCHY BREADED FISH FILLETS

Smart & Crunchy Fish Fillets are made with 100% wild-caught Alaska Pollock and breaded in a panko coating that gives them the great taste and crunch you’ve come to expect from Gorton’s. Always crispy, never fried, they have 50% less fat than our regular Fish Fillets and 200 calories per serving. All the taste, half the fat!

• 50% less fat than our regular breaded fish fillets
• Never fried
• 100% wild-caught Alaska Pollock
• Natural Omega-3


To my knowledge, I have never had Alaska Pollock. These were really flavorful. I really liked the crunch these had. I also liked the fact that there was PLENTY of fish meat in these fillets. Other companies' fillets seem to have more breading/coating than fish meat, and the breading seems to 'flake off.' The breading on the Smart & Crunchy™ fillets seemed to stay on better.
TASTE: 9.5/10

There are 2 different varieties of the Smart & Crunchy™ products; fish fillets and fish sticks.


GARLIC BUTTER GRILLED FILLETS

Flame-grilled and expertly seasoned with real garlic and butter, Gorton’s Garlic Butter Grilled Fillets add sizzle to any meal! Enjoy authentic flame-grilled fish from your oven or microwave, anytime. Plus, they’re 80 calories so you can load up on flavor without being weighed down.

• 80 calories
• Wild Caught Alaska Pollock
• Gluten Free
• Natural Omega-3

These are one of the B1G1 deals our local store had. I didn't really like the flavor of these fillets. I felt it was too heavy on the garlic and not enough butter. This surprised me, because I usually LOVE things with garlic. But these just didn't do anything for me.
TASTE: 7/10

LEMON PEPPER GRILLED FILLETS

Flame-grilled and expertly seasoned with real lemon and pepper, Gorton’s Lemon Pepper Grilled Fillets add sizzle to any meal! Enjoy authentic flame-grilled fish from your oven or microwave, anytime. Plus, they’re 90 calories so you can load up on flavor without being weighed down.

• 90 calories
• Wild Caught Alaska Pollock
• Gluten Free
• Natural Omega-3

These are the other variety of the B1G1 deals our local store had. Besides the Smart & Crunchy™ fillets, these were my favorite. The lemon and the pepper blended wonderfully with the natural flavors of the Alaska Pollock. I would definitely recommend this flavor over the Garlic Butter flavor.
TASTE: 9.75/10

As I said, I was given a promotional package in exchange for this review. In this package was two (2) full-value product coupons, branded Mommy/Daddy and Me Aprons and a Smarty Crunchman plush stuffy. I personally use the kid's apron as a 'bib,' since I have poor saliva control. The stuffed plushy is VERY adorable and sits on my computer desk.

Gorton's wants to give YOU a similar PRIZE PACKAGE in a giveaway!
