Skout Organic Trailbars Review!

Skout Organic Trailbars "were born in the lush Willamette Valley of Oregon. Made with delicious organic ingredients, they embody the rugged and energetic spirit of the region. Skout Organic Trailbars sustain those who seek, find, and embrace adventure to its fullest." These bars make for a healthy and very tasty snack! They are great to take along on a hike or bike ride, or you can stash a few in your desk drawer at work when you need a little extra energy and don't want to raid a vending machine or nearby candy dish. I'm very glad to have received some samples of these bars to review for you.

Here are some more cool specs for Skout Organic Trailbars (pictured below):
  • Certified Organic
  • Certified Gluten Free
  • Non-GMO Project Verified
  • Naturally Occurring Nutrients
  • No Refined Sugar or Fillers
  • Certified Kosher
  • Vegan
  • Dairy & Soy Free

I rate these bars a 9.5 of 10. I enjoyed all of the flavors, especially the chocolate and coconut and the blueberry and almond. These bars remind me of larabars, but aren't as sticky, which is something I appreciate. They are filling, made with quality ingredients, and very portable. I also love the packaging - it highlights the natural quality of the bars. :-)

Be sure to check out Skout Natural Foods on Facebook and Twitter! I also recommend trying these bars for yourself. You won't be disappointed!

QStick Review!

Do you have any unwanted facial hair? Do you wonder how you can remove it easily and for a low cost? I think the answer is the QStick! I was sent a complimentary QStick to review and am happy to share that review with you today.

According to their website, the QStick is:
  • Convenient, easy & fast
  • Safe for all skin types
  • Finer hair re-growth
  • Small enough to carry
  • Hypo-Allergenic
  • Environmentally friendly & reusable

I agree with all of these statements! I tried the QStick and was impressed at how quickly and easily I could remove unwanted facial hair. Did it hurt? To be honest, yes, it did hurt a bit, but primarily just around my mouth - a more sensitive area. While I've never waxed, I think you could compare it to that. This is much less messy though! I love that it's portable too, so you can bring it with you on longer trips.

Have you tried the QStick? Have you tried other ways to remove facial hair?

Redmond Clay, Bath Salts, Real Salt, Re-Lyte Electrolyte Replacement Capsules, and Earthpaste Review

Have you heard about Redmond? This company has some awesome products that are "simple, clean, and real - just the way nature intended." I was sent some Redmond product samples to review, which are pictured below. I sampled Redmond Clay Facial Mud, Earthpaste, Bath Salt, Real Salt, and Re-Lyte Electrolyte Replacement Capsules.

After trying the different products, I can honestly say that I'm happy with them all. My favorite was the Redmond Clay Facial Mud. I swear I could feel it cleansing my skin, and some of the redness/pimples on my face diminished after just one use! Earthpaste was my second favorite product. I've never tried natural toothpaste before, but I was happy to try this brand. While it took a little getting used to the different flavor and texture, I was happy that the paste left my mouth feeling fresh and clean sans artificial flavorings and iffy ingredients. The bath salts also worked wonderfully, and the real salt (a tasty natural sea salt!) was great for seasoning various dishes. I'm still working my way through the Re-Lyte Electrolyte Replacement Capsules, but I do think they are helpful for athletes. They contain important electrolytes and trace minerals that help prevent cramps - sounds good to me!
