Taut Collagen

Taut Premium Collagen is North America’s first drinkable collagen brand. Though drinking collagen may appear novel to American skincare connoisseurs, Asian beauty consumers have been using Taut for years to both improve the skin’s natural appearance and for wound repair. Taut was formulated in Japan and overseas it is a household beauty staple.

Each 1.7 oz bottle of Taut contains 13,000mg of hydrolyzed collagen making it the highest concentration of ingestible collagen on the market. Taut is all-natural, preservative free, chemical free, allergen-free, gluten free, and sweetened with Stevia. "Beauty from the inside out and beauty from the outside in” is the Taut motto. Accordingly, the brand offers two collagen boosting products and programs depending upon consumer need: Taut Premium Collagen as well as Taut Collagen Masks. Those new to the ingestible collagen experience are encouraged to drink one bottle of Taut before bedtime every night for 21 straight days. There is also a maintenance program for longer results. This great tasting shot of collagen will soon be the hot beauty product in 2017 and makes for the perfect gift for that beauty conscious person in your life.

Snowberry radiance face serum

Snowberry is a new skincare line based out of New Zealand, which is known for pristine waters, lush rainforests, and stunning vistas as far as the eye can see. Most of us will never make it to these islands set deep in the South Pacific, but this new local company, Snowberry has bottled up all that beauty into a serious anti-aging serum.

Snowberry’s New Radiance Face Serum with CuPEP™ combines the best of all worlds – the purest, yet most effective ingredients and the best of modern skin care science. The formula stems from five years of R & D in a doctoral program at New Zealand’s University of Auckland. Snowberry has the perfect combination of copper peptide and sodium hyaluronate, which together help hydrate, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and give the skin a more “plumped” appearance, but also on a trademarked delivery system exclusive to Snowberry that really sets this apart from other skincare products. Snowberry is also the first New Zealand skin care company to achieve carboNZeroCert™ certification for each of its products. Visit the Snowberry website to find out about their entire skincare line beginning at $32.00.

Another thing that I find super useful is the hairbanglez. When I wear my long hair down I like to have a rubber hair band, so I can put my hair up at any time when it starts to get in the way. I don't however like to wear the rubber bands around my wrist, because sometime they are too tight and cut off the blood circulation. With hairbanglz, you don't have to worry about that!!

Functioning as a holder for hair elastics and doubling as a stylish bracelet, hairbanglez is a new addition to the trend of smart fashion- efficient style that serves a purpose.Each bracelet has specially designed, indented grooves to hold one thick or thin elastic hair band in place, available in plastics, metals, sporty and mini versions. While the hair elastic is secure in the grooved compartment, it is still easily accessible by hand through the rounded dips surrounding the bangle.

Growing up my dad thought it was important that all of us as we got to the legal driving age, know a little something about cars, just in case of emergencies. He taught us about changing tires, changing oil, what types of warnings the car will give, how to jumpstart a car, and what to do if your car break downs on the road.

He would agree with the Flared Kits description. "When an emergency strikes, you ought to be confident in your ability to jumpstart your car, alert other drivers, call for help, and anything else that might come your way.
