myInsens Raises the Bar on Incense and Ignites the Senses for Peace of Mind

A boost of positive energy, an experience of total pleasure, and a jolt of pure ecstasy are what we all seek. A tranquil mind, a balanced life, and a calm spirit are what we all need. To realize these wants and needs, we must be open to let love quench our senses and assuage our desires. I found my love wrapped up in a pretty little velvet black box.

Derived from the most exotic, aromatic, and luscious blends of herbs, resins, and oils from around the world, myInsens incense sticks have just raised the bar in the incense industry.

Kaivan Dave, creator of myInsens, founded the company in the latter part of 2011. After spending six months developing more than 120 fragrances, he and a team of researchers decided to narrow it down and only select six of the absolute best, most pleasing aromas.

They made excellent choices. Unlike certain brands of incense products, which can have a strong chemical odor, myInsens smells natural and clean.

Freekeh is an Ancient Grain With Serious Health Benefits

We love reviewing new products at Diets In Review, especially ones that we’ve never heard of before. It’s like getting to take a sneak peek at the newest products hitting the market and we get to tell you all about them first. Our most recent product review? Freekeh, which is roasted green wheat.

If you’re trying to imagine what roasted green wheat tastes like, think of a mix between rice in appearance and flavor and wheat berries in texture. It cooks up just like rice but has a slightly chewier feel.

The Flex Belt Not Recommended for Fat Loss, but May Enhance Abs

Something I saw on TV a couple months ago caught my attention. It’s called the Flex Belt. It’s made to tone, strengthen and firm your abdominals. As I watched the commercial, I was thinking it had to be too good to be true, but if I had access to try it out, I totally would. So I did.

The day the Flex Belt came in the mail, I was actually pretty excited (which was surprising due to the lack of faith I had in it). One of the first things I did when I got home was put it on the charger. I read the directions, went through the different programs available, and started my abdominal workout as soon as the magic machine was ready. At the first moment I felt its contractions, I bursted with laughter. I really didn’t know what to think of it. I couldn’t tell if it was tickling me or if I just wasn’t used to it (probably a little of both).

I began experimenting with its different levels and programs. I was actually amazed by the intensity levels it can rise to. The Flex Belt truly was working out my abs! Now, it wasn’t the same type of workout that I would get doing the ab machines at the gym, but I could definitely feel my muscles at work without me having to worry about making sure I put in the effort myself.

We Love Gold Bond Friction Defense

One of the most irritating issues of running can be what happens when those clothes swish back and forth for hours on end. Of course, I’m talking about chafing. A painful and irritating side effect that many runners deal with. Thankfully, there are options for managing this nonsense, really effective options.

A tried and mostly-true method has always been to use petroleum jelly on your trouble spots. It tends to keep irritation away for many miles. Only slight down side? It’s messy, greasy and oily, and may even stain your clothes. One of the more recent products to help with chafing is Gold Bond’s Friction Defense. It looks like a stick of deodorant, but it’s not meant to keep you smelling fresh. Instead it will keep skin free from painful chafing.

Whether men need to avoid bloody nipples, or ladies need to get relief from a snug jog bra, the key to fighting chafing is to reduce the friction. Several of us put the Gold Bond to the test this summer to see if it stacks up against other similar products.

Suzy Sirloin Ships Quality, Natural Meats to Your Doorstep

One of the main reasons I try and eat mostly vegetarian is that I find it difficult to find natural meats free of hormones and antibiotics at my local grocery stores. In fact, upon visiting the meat counter at a nearby market, I asked where their grass-fed meat selection was. I was given a baffled look in return and the answer, “We don’t have any of that.” Naturally, my solution was to stick to grains, beans and dairy for protein instead.

It’s not that I don’t like meat, because I certainly do. If quality, naturally-raised meat was more readily available in my city, I might consider eating it more often.

Lucky for me, Suzy Sirloin – a producer of natural meats in New York – recently reached out to Diets In Review and offered to send a sample of their hormone- and antibiotic-free beef. We of course jumped at the chance and just a few days after my shipment arrived, I got right to sampling my Suzy Sirloin meats.
