EOSSI Beauty Treatment – CBD Face Oil

Making its debut on International Self-Care Day (July 24) with its first product release is Eossi facial oil, with 1,000mg hemp-derived CBD and other natural ingredients that will achieve your summer glow goals. Please see the video below for unboxing and my thoughts.

“Eossi Beauty, the newest indie beauty brand creating affordable luxury plant-based products, officially launched its brand on International Self-Care Day and announced the first product drop: Facial Glow Oil #8. Inspired by the power of plants, including argan oil and CBD, the Facial Glow Oil #8 illuminates the skin with natural ingredients.

Designed to complement a daily beauty routine, the facial oil is a hydrating, restorative skincare solution that gives the skin a natural glow. The Eossi Beauty team created Facial Glow Oil #8 after recognizing a growing demand in the beauty space for high-quality, trusted CBD products at accessible price points. The ingredients—which include essential oils and broad-spectrum, hemp-derived CBD that is third-party lab tested—were meticulously selected for their skin-enhancing properties.

Facial Glow Oil #8 is named for the formulation: Of the 16 batches tested when developing the final formula, #8 was the perfect one.” (according to Business Wire)

Coral UV 3-in-1 Sanitizer

With recent attention paid to UV-C sanitizers for at home disinfection, we want to introduce you to the Coral UV 3-in-1 Sanitizer: a compact, UV-C sanitizer that provides an easy and chemical free solution for sanitizing everyday items. Our most used items collect the most germs but are the hardest to clean (keys, cell phones, TV remotes). The UV 3-in-1 sanitizer is an effective solution for limiting germs around yourself and your home.

UV light sanitizer

Coral UV uses a high energy, artificial UV-C ray that breaks down the DNA of bacteria and germs and disrupts their ability to reproduce. Compared to other forms of disinfection, the Coral UV 3-in-1 doesn’t damage materials over time like steam sanitizers, can sanitize items in as little as 10 minutes, and requires minimal maintenance.

With an influx of UV-C sanitizers hitting the market, there are a few key functions that distinguish Coral UV from other brands:

  • Accreditation & 3rd Party Testing – Coral UV can back up their claims of 99.9% UV-C sanitation with successful tests from accredited institutions.

  • Minimal design – No one has room in their home for a UV-C sanitizer as large as a mini fridge. Coral UV is a top-open, compact sanitizer that naturally fits in with the rest of your kitchen, nursery, or living room. This helps to maintain consistent use.

  • Stainless Steel Chamber – Reflective stainless steel ensures the sanitizing UV-C light reaches every corner inside the device.

  • Drying function – A built in drying function is convenient for items you might rinse off beforehand, such as pacifiers and water bottles. Coral UV is one of the only sanitizers that has this option.

  • Replaceable parts – Over a long period of time, UV-C lamps can lose some of their strength. Coral UV has replaceable bulbs included and for purchase on their website so you don’t have to eventually replace the entire unit.

The Coral UV 3-in-1 sanitizer will be stocked for purchase at coraluv.com and on Amazon.

Here is a video of myself and my young son learning how to use it. It’s pretty easy, we think you will love it- especially now, with the urgent need to be as clean as possible.

WIN! ProjeX™ Projecting Gaming Arcade

video games

When it’s lights off, it’s game on with the ProjeX™ Projecting Gaming Arcade from New York City-based NSI International, Inc. Projex lets you blast targets, ducks or UFOs that are projected right onto your wall – each with its own unique sound effects.

ProjeX turns any room in your house into an incredible gaming arcade. The Projex system projects the targets onto almost any wall.  There’s no need for a TV, computer, smart phone or other equipment. The size of your wall is essentially the limit to the size of your play area. Projex works best in a dark room, when you project on a light-colored wall with no artwork, wallpaper or painted patterns. 

The portable, battery-operated projector includes two blasters, which are stored right on the unit, a built-in LED scoreboard, and a place to keep image slides.

ProjeX is battery-powered so it can go wherever you go – inside or out. Play on any blank wall, your garage door – even the side of your house.  It really is a very unique gaming experience.

While recommended for children 6+, ProjeX™ is great for any age child, as well as adults.  Retailing for $49.99, the game can be purchased at Target, Walmart and www.ProjeXGame.com.

There are 5 different built-in games test your speed and skill, as well as 3 skill levels – beginner, advanced and expert (The “beginner” setting accommodates even the youngest players in the room.) It comes with 3 interchangeable image slides. You can blast ducks, targets or UFOs – each with its own unique sound effects. You change slides to change your level of difficulty:

    • Blue (targets) = easy
    • Red (UFOs) = medium
    • White (ducks) = difficult

You can play solo, head to head, or “co op”, where 2 players team up to combine scores. There are also tournaments. If you are playing alone, you can still work on your own score. You can play outside at night as well, on your house or even your garage door.

Set up is easy!

SET UP
  1. Install three BRAND NEW, FRESH “AA” alkaline batteries.
  1. Set ProjeX on a low table, with the projector aimed at the wall. The projector should be 5 feet from the wall.
  1. Slide an image slide into the image slot, rounded side up (if it doesn’t fit, it’s backwards).  Blue = easy, red = medium, white = difficult
  1. Plug in both blasters.  Then, if you’re playing solo, unplug one.
  1. Press the red power button. You have 45 seconds to adjust the focus.
  1. Press the red button again to select game 1-5.
  1. Press the blue button to select your level – beginner, advanced or expert.
