GEEPET Self Cleaning Slicker Brush for Dogs and Cats

Standard

GEEPET Self Cleaning Slicker Brush for Dogs and Cats – Easy to Clean Pet Grooming Brush Removes Mats, Tangles, and Loose Hair with Minimal Effort and Comfort – Suitable for Long or Short Hair

With four cats who have a variety of lengths of fur and tolerances for grooming, an easy to use, comfortable, and easy to clean brush is a must have tool. My most picky cat when it comes to being brushed is our male Bengal. The second I started using this brush on him he laid down and stretched out. Usually he tries to run as soon as I start brushing him, so this brush must feel good on his skin.

The feature I love the most about this brush is that it is incredibly easy to clean. At the press of a button the bristles retract allowing you to slide your hand across it and pull up all of the hair. With the number of cats I have, this feature comes in very handy.

Pros:

  1. Cats like it
  2. Easy to Clean/Self-cleaning

Cons:

  1. A little bit too big, should have gotten smaller model

Aogek USB Type C Kit, Type C to USB 3.0 Adapter, Type C to Micro B Adapter (5 Pack)

Standard

Aogek USB Type C Kit, Type 3.0 Adapter (3 PCS), Type C to Micro B Adapter (2 PCS) for Apple New MacBook 12”, Chromebook Pixel, Nexus, Nokia N1, One Plus 2 and Other Devices(5 Pack)

  • Ordered: 24 January 2017
  • Received: 26 January 2017
  • Link: Amazon Store
  • Sold By: Aogek

The Aogek USB Type C kit is an excellent kit to have on hand if you are the owner of a good  device that requires a Type C connection. What helps Aogek stand out from other manufacturers of Type C adapters is in their packaging. The kit comes in a relatively thick and sturdy plastic containers. The container has cut outs and cushioning that prevent the adapters from moving around whenever they are being transported. The cushions also prevent the adapters from falling out of the container and getting lost whenever they are in use.

The USB Type C to USB 3.0 adapters are aesthetically pleasing and feel like they are of good quality. The adapters easily snap into place and seem very sturdy when they are inserted into the USB Type C port of my Nexus 6p. However the USB Type C to Micro USB adapters are made of a flimsy white plastic. They easily fall out of the USB Type C port and I have already managed to lose one of them. This is really unfortunate because I tend to use the USB Type C to Micro USB adapters more often than I do the USB C to USB 3.0 adapters.

This is a great kit in terms of packaging and the quality of the Type C to 3.0 adapters, but the quality of the adapter I rely on the most seems to have been neglected when this kit was put together.

Pros:

  1. Great Packaging (Compact, Sturdy, Portable)
  2. USB Type  C to USB 3.0 adapters are sturdy, fit snuggly in my phone’s charging port, and look like they are made of good quality materials

Cons:

  1. Micro USB to USB Type C adapter appears flimsy and falls out of charging port

 

Fingerless Gloves Short Sleeve Crochet Arm Warmers Knitting Pattern Winter Gloves For Women and Girls (Red)

Standard

Fingerless Gloves Short Sleeve Crochet Arm Warmers Knitting Pattern Winter Gloves For Women and Girls (Red)

These have been my goto gloves this winter. These gloves are both practical and stylish. They do an excellent job at keeping my hands warm and they go along well with quite a few different outfits.

A few threads have come loose already, which is probably due to how much I have worn them. These gloves are a much darker red than the pictures show, which is actually not a bad thing because the darker color goes better with most outfits.

Pros:
1. Knitted material keeps hands warm
2. Stylish & goes well with most outfits

Cons:
1. Threads are already coming loose
2. Color different from pictures (darker red)

FENIFOX Wireless Keyboard with Multi-Touch Touchpad Whisper-Quiet Typing and Ultra Slim Compact for PC Tablet Windows (White)

FENIFOX Wireless Keyboard with Multi-Touch Touchpad Whisper-Quiet Typing and Ultra Slim Compact for PC Tablet Windows (White)

The Fenifox wireless keyboard is a basic wireless keyboard with a touchpad. It works well and has some neat features especially with the touchpad, as different gestures replicate certain mouse functions. I have two primary complaints with this keyboard. The first is that the instructions that came with it are printed in a tiny font size making them incredibly difficult to read. My second complaint is that the keyboard doesn’t always work immediately when the usb dongle is plugged into a new device. The instructions do not explain what to do if this occurs, however by contacting the seller I was provided with the following solution: turn off keyboard, unplug USB receiver, plug in USB receiver, press and hold FN and Backspace at the same time and turn on keyboard.

Pros:
1. Gestures on touchpad add more functionality
2. Lightweight and Thin

Cons:
1. Instructions are difficult to read
2. Does not always connect when moved to new device.

Adfilic Wireless Bluetooth Speaker

Standard

Wireless Bluetooth Speaker, Flash SALE, Cheap Powerful Top Boombox Stereo Rated Sound, Sony Portable, Works Best For iPhone, iPad, Samsung, Great for Outdoors, HD Bose Bass, Car Hands Free – Black

At only 4.5 x 2.5 x 2.3 inches, the Adfilic Bluetooth Speaker is very small. Despite the small size of this speaker, it produces a surprisingly rich and full sound. We have another bluetooth speaker that is about twice the size of this speaker, so you would assume it would produce louder and clearer sounds. However this is not the case. The small size of the Adfilic Bluetooth Speaker makes it easy to travel with and very portable. It can easily fit in a purse or pocket.

In testing this product, I played a large range of music styles and all of the music sounded great playing through the speaker. Connecting it to a device via bluetooth was very easily accomplished. Though I doubt I will utilize this feature, the speaker does have a built in FM Radio which works relatively well. The instructions were easy to follow. The only major difficulty I encountered was in adjusting the volume of the speaker. You have to hold down a button to raise or lower the volume and the button choices are not overly intuitive.

I am incredibly impressed with this speaker. Both the size and price of the speaker would lead you to believe that it wouldn’t have very good sound quality. I was in fact very skeptical when purchasing this speaker, but I shouldn’t have been because it is a really impressive device.

Pros:

  1. Small Size
  2. High Quality Sound for Speaker Size
  3. Excellent Volume Range

Cons:

  1. Volume adjustment not intuitive or easy to perform
  2. Button labels are confusing

I have very sensitive skin, but in testing this oil it did not irritate my skin or cause breakouts. It also didn’t leave my skin feeling oily like some oils can. Prior to purchasing this oil, I did not know much about the benefits of it, but did research them prior to making a decision. Though.I cannot confirm any of the direct benefits I do know that the oil does do a good job of moisturizing the skin. The rosehip oil comes with in a dark plastic bottle with both a dropper and a pump to get it out of the bottle. I currently prefer the dropper, but it is nice to have more than one option.

Top Rated PokeBall Spice & Herb Grinder by Expert Chef

The Pokeball Spice & Herb Grinder comes in a small and sturdy package. The grinder is small enough to fit in the palm of my hand and it is relatively light weight, making it very easy to use.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The grinder consists of three parts.The base and lid are magnetic, while the center piece contains a screen and screws into the base.The lid and center piece contain the teeth used to grind up the spices and herbs. For the grinder to stay shut and work well all three parts of the grinder will only fit one way. The base has a small flat part that allows it to sit only one way on the counter or table.

I love the look and feel of this grinder, but the size and weight of it may limit  how much it can really do.

Pros:

  1. Design is nice, no flaws, and looks clean and shiny
  2. Smaller size makes it easier to manipulate
  3. Sharp, thick grinding teeth

Cons:

  1. Small size and shallow base will limit the amount of spice/herb that be ground up at any one time
