Hyperbiotics PRO 15


One of my favorite brands for health and wellness supplements as of late has been Hyperbiotics. And if it wasn't for Brandbacker, I would have never discovered them. Recently, I had the opportunity to try Hyperbiotic's PRO-15. I was a little reluctant trying a probiotic simply because I have never tried one before. Dubbed as being the #1 probiotic recommended by people, I just had to cave in and try it. So, what did I think?
 
 
PROS
 
Using superior technology, Hyperbiotics PRO-15 allows you to get 15 times more than the average probiotic. Living organisms live inside the intestinal tract and believe it or not, 80% of our immune system is in our stomach. PRO-15 targets the bad bacteria instantaneously by preventing it from coming in.
 
After using this product, I noticed that my energy levels were elevated. I also noticed that my mood improved, as well.
 
PRO-15 can actually help with weight loss, especially around your stomach area. It improves metabolism and targets the microflora around the midsection.
 
If you are looking for a product that is free of animal derivatives, you will love PRO-15, as it is 100% vegetarian.
 
Not only are these capsules both lactose-free and yeast-free, but they are gluten-free too. They also do not contain any sugar and are free of soy, nuts, and eggs.
 
This product is free of genetically modified organisms (or GMOs).
 
CONS
 
If you are allergic to Kiwi Fruit, you may not find this product appealing. Why? Because it's fortified with Kiwi Extract.
 
 
You can grab PRO 15 for $26.95 (originally $59.99) at Hyperbiotics Amazon store. Would I use this product again? Absolutely. Would I recommend it to a friend? Yes. For more information about Hyperbiotics PRO 15, simply visit Amazon right now.

Dermaflage Starter Kit


When it comes to trying new products, I am definitely one of those women that will jump at the opportunity. Especially when it comes to anything beauty related. When I heard that this brand was producing a product that works as a topical filler, mimicing the skin, I guess you could say I was relatively intrigued by the entire concept. Is it possible? Recently, I had the chance to try the Dermaflage Tan Starter Kit. So, what did I think?

PROS

First and foremost, I love the shades of the actual concealing product, the topical filler. In this kit, you will receive two to ensure a color match. I love that they are not too cool or too warm and possess an unique neutral tone that really blends into your skin like a second skin.

When it comes to coverage, I really truly believe that the topical filler covers incredibly. Everything from acne scars to depigmentation and much more.

After wearing this product, I found that it lasted modestly long, but even longer with the primer that is included with the kit. It is a lot like theatre/FX makeup, which I really enjoy. Speaking of the primer. The primer ($15) is relatively long-lasting. I love that it didn't dry up or flake off of my face. The primer also allowed the product to go on smooth. You can cry in this product and it won't fade off.

When I first received the tips, I honestly did not know what they were really for until I discovered that the 60 Tips ($30) allow you to get creative, as they allow you to apply the Dermaflage concealer directly onto the imperfection. If you have a very small, as well as, refined scar these tools attach directly onto Dermaflage applicator.

The texture pad, compact, spatula and mixing stick ($10) allow you to simply apply the product evenly on your face. Whether you want to use the applicator directly or use these essential tools is entirely up to you, however; I found that these beauty basics help tremendously with overall application.

Dermaflage embraces the cruelty-free concept, so no animals were harmed when this product was created.

CONS

This product includes an array of ingredients that are somewhat questionable. For instance, it does contain silicone. If you are allergic to silicone or simply find yourself garnering a reaction to anything silicone, you may want to refrain from using the Dermaflage Topical Filler.

It is not a natural product, so if you are looking for something natural or organic, you are not going to find this product appealing.

The Starter Kit is available at Dermaflage for $50. Would I use this product again? Absolutely. Would I recommend them to a friend? Yes. For more information about this product, simply click here right now.

Kiss Me Organics: Culinary Grade Organic Matcha


When it comes to green tea, I have to admit that I love it. Brand Backer recently offered an opportunity to try Kiss Me Organics Organic Matcha Culinary Grade Green Tea Powder. What did I think?
 
PROS
 
Matcha is great for mental alertness. Also, it works incredibly for concentration. In fact, many studies have been conducted that found this amazing ingredient to help promote focus and mental health too.
 
Matcha has proved to prevent strokes, as it works as a natural blood thinner.
 
This amazing ingredient has been known to lower the total cholesterol. It also works to lower HDL cholesterol.
 
Aside from promoting a healthy mental well being, it is great for a physical well being. Not only does Matcha boost metabolism, it's been said to burn actual calories.
 
Matcha is great for those who follow low carb/high protein diets, as it is great for those who are diabetic. It lowers fasting blood sugar.
 
This product is extremely adaptable. Not only is it great in drinks such as green smoothies or protein shakes, etc. it is outstanding to incorporate into your cooking. In fact, I just used some earlier today when I was making black quinoa. The flavor is natural yet potent, so a little goes a long way.
 
Containing 137x antioxidants, I think it's safe to say that this product is quality.
 
CONS 
 
If you are going through chemotherapy and taking any drugs associated with this process, it is very important to check with your physician before using Matcha powder.
 
I am obsessed with this and once my sample is up, I definitely intend to buy this product.

InstaNatural Vitamin C Moisturizer


When it comes to trying new things, I am definitely up for it. In fact, I would rather test on myself than any animal. Recently, Brand Backer offered the amazing opportunity to try a product from InstaNatural, the Vitamin C Moisturizer. What did I think?
 
PROS
 
This moisturizer is fortified with Vitamin C, Niacinamide, Hyaluronic Acid, and MSM. It also includes various plant stem cells and a peptide complex.
 
Our bodies do not product Vitamin C, so when it is applied it can oxidize on your skin. This product actually does not oxidize which makes me not only love it, but appreciate it much more so. Also, like what Vitamin C does to our system internally, it tends to do the same thing externally. Only this time, it fights DNA damage which I love.
 
There are a lot of natural ingredients and even quite a few organic ingredients. The glycerin in this product is kosher. This product was not tested on animals. Who doesn't love cruelty-free?
 
My skin tends to be combination, but leans towards the dry side this time of year. This moisturizer really benefited my skin the moment I applied it to my face. I really love how it makes my skin look, as well as, feel.
 
This moisturizer is only $19.97. It is very hard to find an outstanding vitamin C moisturizer for under $20.
 
CONS

This moisturizer is rather light. Almost like a serum. If you are into heavier moisturizers, you may not find this one appealing.

Hyperbiotics Ultimate Immune System Formula


When Brand Backer offered an amazing sampling opportunity from Hyperbiotics, I have to admit I was very happy because I noticed virtually everyone around me was getting sick. And I am not talking about just a little cough here and there, I am talking about flu and the worst kind. The kind that rushes people to the hospital. I refused to be statistic, so of course I decided to try the Ultimate Immune System Formula the moment it showed up at my front door. So, what did I think?
 
PROS
 
I have been around people who have been extremely ill. In fact, the moment someone would cough, the next minute someone would catch it. After using this product, I have yet to get sick. I wash my hands and brush my teeth on top of taking this product, so I am not sure if this is the reason. Either way, I am convinced that this stuff is not "hocus pocus" and truly does work.
 
This product truly is one of the best immune supporting products I have ever tried in my life. For only $19.95 (originally $49.95), this is the best investment. Even if this were a $100, I would say it's still worth it. Especially if you work or go to school and are around people all of the time.
 
Plus, on top of being an immune system support product, it is also 100% vegetarian. It is gluten-free and egg-free too. There are no synthetic chemicals in this product. These supplements are also free of genetically modified organisms (or GMOs).
 
CONS
 
If you are not into taking pills, you may not find this product appealing.

Greenforce Labs NO2 Pre-Workout Review


When Brand Backer decided to offer the opportunity to sample a pre-workout, I was quite stoked considering I was in the process of working on my "Best in Beauty 2014: Pre-Workout" article for Examiner (where NO2 is currently featured). I had the opportunity to try this pre-workout. What did I think?
 
PROS
 
After trying this pre-workout, I noticed that my entire regime was intensified. Fortified with Beet Root Extract, Arginine, Vitamin B-3, and Vitamin B12; this pre-workout really delivers the ultimate all-in-one workout solution.
 
I love the idea that this product contains Beet Root Extract simply because there are a lot of benefits with this particular ingredient. One of the things that I found fascinating is the fact that it increases blood flow and actually helps with pain management, as well.
 
The energy I endured after taking the recommended dosage is outstanding. I never felt any weird jitters and I have noticed results after a week of using this pre-workout.
 
For just $24.95, you get 120 capsules (originally $59.95). A pre-workout for under $40 let alone $30 is quite rare. This is considerably an affordable product that is highly effective.
 
This product is manufactured in the United States, in an FDA registered facility. This facility is GMP and NSF certified.
 
CONS
 
Although some of the ingredients are natural, it is a lab created product. If you are into natural products, you are not going to find this pre-workout appealing.
 
If you are not into taking supplements and prefer the standard pre-workout mix drink, then you may not find this Greenforce Labs addition interesting.
