Earth Essence Bath Bombs Review

By now all of my readers probably know that I am a hardcore runner and am otherwise very active. So there is no doubt that my body takes a beating, especially my feet! I’m not one to be mindful of my need to relax and often have to be forced to do so by removing any work related distractions and isolating me in a place like a hot bathtub with bubbles!
Yes, I may as well be a child in an adult body but today’s review isn’t about bath toys or bubbles. It’s a bit more mature than that!

Earth Essence sent me a box of 6 of their most popular bath bombs to try and because I find it so difficult to relax, it took me several weeks to schedule a bath to experience the scents and benefits of the product. their scents are unique and very relaxing. All of their ingredients are 100% natural and very effective and making your skin feel smooth and moist. No parabens, synthetic fragrances or petroleum. My favorite so far is the Lemon Eucalyptus but all of them smell amazing. The other scents are Lavendar, Spearmint, Grapefruit Ylang Ylang, Orange Beramot and Almond Ginger.   You can see my reaction and the bath bombs up close during my unboxing video on my Youtube Channel.   

Measurable Difference Haul and Review

It seems like Measurable Difference has gone through a rebranding over the last few years switching from their white and gold packaging to the new silver packaging which honestly makes the products look more high-end. I really liked the Lash’em Brow Tint and lift to keep my eyebrows in place. Lasts all day. Never have a problem with keeping my eyebrows in place when I use this. The problem is that I only have 1 tube so I tend to use it at home  on the weekends instead of at work. 

I also really like there Double Trouble Mascara. Side one lengthens and  Side two makes your lashes fuller. It gives definition while at the same time adds volume. It’s great on days when I don’t want to wear falsies!

I always look towards lighter, pinker blushes but Measurable Difference’s Baked Blush in Rose caught my eye for those more dramatic moments. It’s definitely something for evenings out or more dramatic shoots. My least favorite out of this bunch of products was  the Lash Amplifying Liquid Eyeliner in the Blackest Black. I loved the color, don’t get me wrong but I was unfortunately not too fond of the eyeliner brush. It felt too stiff. I went into ALL of the details on my Youtube video. So check it out and i’ll see you in my next review!

Readly Magazine App Review | Daisi Jo Reviews Live on Persicope

Hey Guys!

This is a sponsored post but I promise this is my honest opinion of the Readly App. Readly is a new approach to reading magazines offered at a great value.  Priced at just $9.99 per month, gets you access to their entire library. That’s unlimited access to every magazine title. I featured the app on my livestream broadcast on Periscope for Daisi Jo Reviews Live.

Readly offers a wide selection of magazines across every category and are continually adding more. Honestly there are some gaps in their catalogue. However, I still found many of my favorites, especially in the Business and Fitness Categories such as Forbes, Bloomberg Businessweek, Fast Company, Inc., Climbing, Running Times, and Runners World! I guess you guys can see that I really like Business and Running! You will also be able to access the back issues of many magazines. 

There were only a few issues I had about the selection of magazines on Readly. I couldn't figure out why Maxim Magazine is featured in the Fashion category and I wish there were more magazines in the Fashion, Beauty and Luxury categories. 

Readly doesn’t have the interactive features that some dedicated magazine apps offer but they do have fast page turns, sharp text, and vivid pictures. You can also download issues and read them later. The  App can be used in portrait or landscape viewing. Readly works on Android, iOS, Kindle Fire, or Windows 8 devices. You can add up to 5 devices on 1 account.

It’s really nice to enjoy magazines that you didn’t pay $6 each for off the rack and gives you fast and convenient access.  Right now they are offering a One Week Free Promotion.

Valentia Clear Lift Revitalizing Serum Review

I’ve reviewed a several products by Valentia and I really like the results I’ve seen from using them. Now I am trying out their Lift Revitalizing Serum which renews texture & tone, deeply moisturizes, minimizes fine lines and increases elasticity.
The key ingredients in Revitalizing Serum are: wakame bioferment (seaweed), gotu kola, lactic acid, licorice and argan oil. 

The Wakame Bioferment (Seaweed) is supposed to increase the oxygen in the skin to detoxify and boost antioxidant defense. Gotu Kola lessens the appearance of scars. Lactic Acid is actually a natural Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) which increases skin cell turnover. Licorice is a natural skin lightener that is used for correcting skin discoloration. Arian Oil helps reduce water loss and protects skin’s resiliency and elasticity.

I think this serum has more of a liquid texture than the other products I’ve gotten from Valentia. Although this product isn’t the same as the others, I was expecting a more consistent texture. I really like I have to work this serum into my skin a little more. I do like how the product does work well with other products such as applying moisturizers on top of the serum. 

After about 1 week, I can really say whether it works yet. I link to give a product at least half a bottle or even a full use first. I’m approaching 36 but I don’t have any fine lines on my face. I do however, have naturally dry skin so I have always been proactive about stay well moisturized. 

Valentia has always done really nice bottling and packaging. The pump is great and makes it super easy to use.  I’m really happy that I don’t have to force the serum out of the bottle. 

I’d love to know if you’ve tried Valentia Clear Revitalizing Serum and if you like it? If you haven’t, you can find it on Amazon or at Are you curious about Valentia’s other products? Here are some of my favorites!

Surgu Review | Easy DIY’s with Sugru | Daisi Jo Reviews Live on Periscope

Around my house I’m known as Handy Model 101 because of my very improvised  DIY fixes. I’m always mending, gluing, jimmy rigging something. I was first introduced to Sugru two weeks ago when my boyfriend was doing some Amazon shopping and randomly asked me if I wanted a pack. Neither of us had tried it before but he said it seemed like something I would like because I could make things with it and the rest is history.  My mind is boggled about how many different ways you can use this.

Surge is a strong rubber that can be formed and shaped by hand. It sticks to most surfaces and cures over a 24 hour period into a tough flexible silicone. It can be used for almost anything - well not food, of course. It’s uses are endless, only limited maybe by your imagination. Surgu is extremely durable, flexible and waterproof. Each pack of Sugru comes with a set of 5 gram packs. Mine came with 8 packs in black, white, blue, yellow and red. 

When you open a pack, Sugru looks and feels just like Play-Doh but without the odor. The basics of working the Sugru is that you figure out how much of the pack you need. For example, 1, 2 or 3 pieces. Then you typically start by rolling it in a ball and then shaping it for whatever you are planning house it for. 

On Daisi Jo Reviews Live on Periscope today I used Sugru to fix my iPhone charger cord and to make a shield for my scissors. You can see it in full action here.

I let the Sugru set overnight so tomorrow when I am back in the studio, I’ll see how it set. You should also know that Sugru is electrically non-conductive so using it with wires and around electricity is totally fine. I’ve got about 6 packs lefts and now that I’ve got the hang of working with Sugru, I’m sure I’ll get busy fixing and doing all kinds of hacks around the studio and home. 

If you can’t tell, I’ve completely fallen in love with Sugru and it’s now my go-to for an endless list of ideas.
