Zim's Crack Creme Review & Giveaway

If you've been following my blog this year, then you would know that I've been reviewing different skincare products, but I haven't tried out any products relating to hands and feet until now.

About a month ago, I was sent a small bottle of Zim's Crack Creme. Long before Zim's Max Freeze was popular, Zim's Crack Creme was helping countless people soften and moisturize dry, cracked skin on hands, feet, elbows, and cuticles.

Originally, the Zim's Crack Creme was created over 60 years ago for cement workers whom where complaining about their dry and cracked hands and feet. With the simple ingredients of Arnica & Myrica oil, the creme can help moisturize your and soften your skin. The product is very popular with mechanics, construction workers, factory workers and healthcare workers.

Vivree Kitchen Tongs Set Review

Yep, here I am again writing a review for another kitchen product. Where you're a at-home cook or a professional chef, you probably have way too many utensils in your kitchen drawers. For me, I have several different tongs. I have a set of plastic thongs I hardly ever use, an old metal tong that has seen better days and two long stainless steal tongs for the outside that grill that are just in the way.

Last month, I was sent the Vivree Kitchen Tongs Set to test out and review. The set includes a small and medium size tongs that have non-removable silicone tips. These tips are heat resistant up to 480ºF, so basically the silicone will never melt. The handles are made from stainless steel and features soft silicone pads on them.

It also features a cool Pull-Ring that controls the opening and closing of the tongs. You can also use the Pull-Ring to hang the tongs on a wall, which would save you space.

FitFlexin Fast Acting Joint Cream Review

I believe almost everyone has had some sort of aches or pains from time to time and mostllikely it's due to to a muscle strain. While some strains do heal themselves, others don't go away as easily. Yes, you could to a doctor, but that can be expensive.

Last month, I was sent a small container of FitFlexin to test out a review. It's a fast acting joint cream that can be used for Arthritis, Bursitis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Golfers Elbow, Neuropathy, Plantar Fasciitis, Sciatica Pain Relief, Shin Splints, Tendonitis (Tendinitis) or Tennis Elbow.

The ingredients include:
Purified Water
Glycerol Monostearate
Glucam E-20
Pyridoxine (Vitamin B6)
MSM (methylsulfonylmethan)
Cis-9-Cetyl Myristoleate
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate
Safflower Oil

In the mysterious world of Harmony, there are places filled with unexplored marvels. But Rainshadow Island isn’t about to give up its secrets… 

In the alien catacombs of Rainshadow, there are creatures whose compelling songs lure the unwary to their death. That’s why Rafe Coppersmith, hired to clear out the catacombs for exploration, needs a music talent. He’s knows the perfect one, but she probably doesn’t want anything do with him...

Ella Morgan had once fallen hard and fast for Rafe, but then he disappeared for months…and he’s not about to tell her why. Ella, too, has secrets that only her dust bunny knows. She’s not just a music talent, she’s a Siren: a paranormal singer capable of singing men to sleep—or to their deaths.

But once on Rainshadow, Rafe and Ella will learn that surrendering to passion doesn’t come without risks—and fighting fire with fire only adds to the flame…

Billy Thoughts -
I've heard of the author, but I don't beleive that I've read any books by her. The cover of this book does get my attention.

In 1920s Switzerland, vampire lovers Charlotte and Karl are drawn into turmoil as Godric Reiniger, a local filmmaker and activist with sinister ambitions, begins his rise to power. 

Meanwhile, fiery dancer Emil achieves his dream to partner the legendary ballerina and vampire Violette Lenoir – until his forbidden desire for her becomes an obsession. Rejected, spiralling towards madness, he seeks solace with a mysterious beauty, Fadiya. But she too is a vampire, with a hidden agenda.

When Karl and Charlotte undertake the perilous journey to rescue Emil, they unearth secrets that threaten the very existence of vampire-kind.

Billy's Thoughts -
The last thing we need is another vampire novel, but the cover of this book does look interesting.

Blu-ray Review: Maggie


Director: Henry Hobson
Starring: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Abigail Breslin, Joely Richardson
Studio: LionsGate Home Entertainment
Release Date: July 7, 2015
Retail: $12.99
Running Time: 95 minutes
Rating: PG-13
Buy Link: Amazon

Arriving on Blu-ray this coming Tuesday, July 7, 2015 is the post-apocalyptic drama film Maggie. Directed by Henry Hobson, the film stars Arnold Schwarzenegger (Terminator Genysis), Abigail Breslin (Zombieland) and Joely Richardson (Nip/Tuck). Special Features include: Director's Commentary, "Making Maggie" Featurette, Deleted Scenes, Cast/Crew Interviews and a Trailer Gallery.

In a role that is a complete opposite of his action-flicks, Arnold Schwarzenegger plays Wade, a father who retrieves his daughter Maggie (played by Abigail Breslin) from a hospital in the city. Maggie has been infected with the Necroambulist virus that slowly turns people into flesh-eating zombies. Against the doctor's orders, Wade takes Maggie back home to their farmhouse. Fearing they'll be infected too, he sends Maggie's step-siblings, Bobby and Molly (played by Aidan and Carsen Flowers) to live with their aunt while Maggie spends her last days at home with him and her stepmother Caroline (played by Joely Richardson).

Abigail Breslin ("Maggie") and Arnold Schwarzenegger ("Wade") star in Lionsgate Home Entertainment's MAGGIE.

While Maggie tries to live a normal life by reconnecting with her friends, the virus is slowly getting stronger and she knows eventually it'll take over her. Wade loves his daughter, but he doesn't want her to suffer. He has two choices - let her take the government cocktail, which is a painful death or take matters into his own hands and help end her suffering.

KastKing RXA 40-90 Review

For many people, the summer months means it's time to head to the lake for a little bit of fishing, but if you life in the Midwest (like me), you have to wait until a non-humid rainy day pops up before we can actually catch some fish.

I picked up my passion for fishing from my father and my late maternal grandfather at an early age. Though as an adult, I don't get to fish as much as like to, I still enjoy the outdoor hobby.

Just a few days ago, I received the KastKing RXA 40-90 Baitcasting Reel (which retails between $37.98 - $82.98, depending on what size you want).

Finding the best reel to suit your fishing needs can be a bit difficult with all the different types & styles that are in the stores. The KastKing RXA 40-90 Baitcasting Reel has a more traditional look. The side-plates and spool are made from aircraft-grade aluminum. The rest of the components are constructed from metal and stainless steel, which will help stop any corrosion from fishing inshore or offshore or even saltwater fishing.
