Old Factory Candle Gift Set Review

Tonight, I am  lucky enough to review the Old Factory Candle Gift Set!

This set comes with 3 two ounce scented soy wax candles. This set is the Happy Holidays set. The three scents included with this set are Christmas Tree, Candy Cane, and Gingerbread. The scents are great and they actually last the whole time that the candle is burning. I also found that the candles, though only 2 ounces, burn for a VERY long time. Another awesome benefit is that the wicks are self-trimming!

I found that burning the Christmas Tree and Candy Cane together in my living room actually gives off a really nice smell and then I burned the Gingerbread one in the kitchen which was very pleasant as a kitchen smell.

I did want to mention a couple other things about these candles. Two of the best parts about them, if you ask me! The first: every purchase has a 100% Guarantee! If you don't like the smell or if something is wrong with the candle......then all you have to do is send them back (the company even pays for the return shipping!) and they will refund you your money! How simple is that? The other thing is......the candles are made right here in the USA! So we are supporting a company right here in our own country when we purchase these.

They don't only make the Happy Holidays collection.....they make:

Fall Harvest: Pumpkin Spice, Cranberry, and Autumn Leaves
Winter Wonderland: Hot Cocoa, Roasted Chestnut, and First Snow
Romance: Rose Petal, Champagne, and Dark Chocolate (this is the one I want to try next)
Fresh & Clean: Lemongrass, Olive Blossom, and Fresh Linen
Spa Day: Cucumber, Lemongrass, and Green Tea
Vacation: Sea Breeze, Hawaiian Lei, and Awapuhi
Coffee Shop: Coffee Bean, Hazelnut, and Chai Tea
Man Cave: Straight Razor, Leather, and Mahogany
High As A Kite: Cannabis, Incense, and Bag O' Cookies
New Born Baby: Baby Powder, Baby Shampoo, and First Blanket
50 Shades: Leather, Jasmine Bubbles, and Vanilla Sex

With Christmas fast approaching.....maybe you should grab a couple packs of these and give them out or even just to have on hand for gifts if something comes up and you need one. OR.....maybe you just want to burn them in your home for your holiday parties and get togethers.

Dr. Song's Teeth Whitening Kit

This evening I am reviewing Dr. Song's Home Professional Teeth Whitening Kit.

If you are like me you think your teeth could always be whiter but have tried so many different things and none of them have shown a huge difference. I have tried a ton of different teeth whitening aids including strips, trays, lights, toothpaste, mouth wash, gum, pens, gels, etc. I have had some success with some of them but nothing unbelievable or that made an outstanding difference. 

Then I tried this system.....I can honestly say that not only have I noticed a difference but so has my kids, husband, and co-workers! I thought at first that it was all in my head.....then my husband and kids said something so I chocked that up to them being nice and trying to make me feel good. However, when one of my co-workers asked me if I had been doing something and another co-worker said she was wondering the same thing.....I knew there must REALLY be a difference! 

This kit includes everything you need to make your teeth whiter and brighter. It comes with 8 extra large syringes for over 50 applications, the thermoform trays and the white LED light used and the gel applicator! 

When you first get the system.....you have to form the trays to your teeth just like you would a mouth guard for sports. It is pretty easy. Then you cut the tab off of the front of the trays once you have them formed the way they are comfortable in your mouth. Then you brush and floss your teeth before you begin the treatment. You put 5 ml of the gel into a small bowl and use the applicator brush to apply the gel to the front teeth, put trays in and wipe away any gel on the gum area. At this time you can use the LED light by placing it over the trays for 15 minutes. You wear the trays anywhere from 15 minutes to 4 hours depending on the treatment that you desire and the sensitivity that you begin to experience. You repeat daily until you reach your desired shade. 

Now if you have sensitive teeth when it comes to whitening products like I do.....then I do suggest getting the Dr. Song Remineralization Gel syringes. They help with the sensitivity during treatment and they help strength the enamel in your teeth. I know they most definitely helped me with the sensitivity and this kit was good for 50 treatments as well. So I suggest giving these a try too. 

This is a great system and if you are looking for a system that really works and that isn't hundreds of dollars......I would suggest this one for sure! I know that I will be getting this one for a couple people on my Christmas shopping list! I highly recommend it! Plus, check out Dr. Song's other great products.

Big Slice Cooked Apple Pouches Review

Today I am going to be reviewing Big Slice Cooked Apple Pouches.

When I received these I was a little hesitant about giving them a try! I thought how can a pouch containing cooked apples that are flavored like Raspberry Hibiscus and Green Coffee Extract taste good?!?!?! Well much to my surprise, they were better than good!!! They are GREAT! This one is one of my favorite flavors!!! I couldn't believe it!

My other favorite one is the Cinnamon French Toast flavored one! OMG......it makes my mouth water just thinking about it!

I did try the Boysenberry and Chocolate one and didn't care for that one at all. Then there was the Banana, Mango, and Hemp Seed one....I do NOT like bananas or ANYTHING flavored banana so I had my kids try this one and their response was: "its sour but yummy!"

The company has 3 different lines totaling 16 different flavors! Their lines are:
1. PURE - "Our Pure line was made with just one goal in mind - we wanted to create something simple and delicious. Amazing on Greek yogurt, granola, or all by itself, each recipe is made with pure fruit and spices gently blended together. If it was any more naked, we'd be handing it a bathrobe."
2. FIT - "Being fit doesn't mean succumbing to diet fads - being fit is a lifestyle! Four different varieties promote energy, power, balance, and beauty. Toss one in your gym bag before spin class and go ahead with your fit self."
3. LUXE - "When it's time to indulge, reach for a snack from our luxe line. Rich flavors and pure fruit. Decadent AND healthy? Yup, congrats! You've just found your new guilty pleasure, minus all of the guilt."

The flavors within each line are as follows:

  • Orange Ginger
  • Apricot
  • Natural
  • Blueberry Pomegranate
  • Lemon Berry
  • Chai
  • Cherry Vanilla


  • Banana Mango & HEmp Seed
  • Peach Green Tea & Aloe
  • Pineapple Passion Fruit & Fiber
  • Raspberry Hibiscus & Green Coffee Extract


  • Peach Bellini
  • Cinnamon Candy
  • Boysenberry Chocolate 
  • Cinnamon French Toast
  • Caramel

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