I Bought it, I Tried it: Gelo Hand Soap

This year, I bought a few different products that I kept seeing ads for. I’ll be honest, most of them I was pleasantly surprised with. All of these products I bought with my own money (they are not comped products). I figured if I kept seeing the ad on Facebook and Instagram then maybe other people have been curious too.

The first product I wanted to feature, was one of the first products I bought this year via a facebook ad. I kept seeing the ad, I liked the idea, when I saw the price I thought, what the heck I’ll give it a try. It also came at a time where we had just gotten through having a hard time finding hand soap during the pandemic. Not knowing if it would happen again and always needing a supply of hand soap on hand, I thought this might be a good way to stock up.

Gelo is hand soap with a unique approach. Biodegradable pods you can use to refill your hand soap bottles (or one of theirs) using just water. The scent choices were choices I liked. I also released I was spending anywhere between $1-$3 on bottles of soap at the store and throwing them away when they were done. Yo! I keep hand soap in the kitchen, downstairs bathroom, upstairs bathroom, and the laundry room!

Gelo products reduce the amount of waste of regular disposable hand soaps. If you have a reusable soap pump at home, you can even use the one year already have.

I did an instagram reel so you can get an idea of how it works:

The Gelo refill pods are made with plant based materials: shea, oat, and essential oils. Their pods are completely made up of biodegradable materials including the pod film. There are no sulfates, parabens, or fillers. When you order the refill bag it has enough for 4 refills. So I can literally refill all the soap dispensers I used in my house with one bag. Instead of throwing out 4 soap dispensers I’m only throwing out one bag.

They offer foaming hand soap or gel hand soap options for your preference or for the type of soap dispenser you already have at home. So one of my fave parts? It’s super affordable. I ordered two starter kits for our bathrooms a couple months ago and I’m just now getting to where I needed to order refills. So I ordered a starter kit for our kitchen and 2 more refill bags. $21 shipped and I have enough to refill 12 times. Even with shipping that breaks down to only $1.75/bottle!

Now I’m not an affiliate, ambassador, or anything else with them but I do have a referral link (that anyone can get when you order). It will save you $2 off your first order and give me 10% off my next order. Just go through my Gelo referral link here.

ShinyWant – You Won’t Believe The Deals! AND Zero Waste

I love a good deal. If you found my blog or this post then you probably do too. I have my regular deal sites I visit when I’m in the market for something but I love to learn about new ones. I got an email one day from Shinywant.com.

This is a relatively small deal site, but the deals they offer are amazing, at times even giving stuff away. No joke. So while there’s not a lot of deals the deals they have are worth the site visit. They offer overstock items 75% off or sometimes free. They are an eco-conscious company that believe in zero waste.

They even have name brand items on occasion such as Crayola and Adidas. I was offered a code to order a 50 pack of Crayola colored pencils. You guys I’ve never bought a 50 pack of colored pencils before. I usually go the back-to-school deal route and stock up at back to school time on the 12 packs for $1.99 or whatever it is. But this site opened my eyes to a better deal. A 50 pack of Crayola colored pencils sells or $2.50 on their site (reg $10)! I received my pack and yes they are genuine, authentic Crayola colored pencils.

So what’s the catch? Well, as you might expect, their deals go fast. They only offer so many a day so you gotta grab it when you see it. Also it’s important to read the return policy .While they do take returns in some cases, because of the low cost or free pricing on the products and the fact that they offer FREE shipping, you may be required to return the product at your own cost. I just think it’s important to be aware of these things before making a purchase.

So why is Shinywant.com different from other deal sites? Besides the zero waste idea, and offering free shipping, they also give you the chance to get additional discounts by clicking the “get discount button” on listings.

When I placed my order for the colored pencils I received them in just over a week. When you consider the price, free shipping, and the fact that the pandemic has delayed shipping in general for all shipping companies, I think that’s pretty good.

I feel like we’re always needing colored pencils for something. The kids need them for graphing, for posters for school, coloring contests, etc. I personally prefer to use colored pencils when coloring in my adult coloring book or making something up for work. I just did a quick search to see what other sites were listing Crayola colored pencils 50 ct for. Guess what, the cheapest price I saw elsewhere was $6.25 with some big chain stores listing for $11.99. The Shinywant.com price blows all of those out of the water!

I’m also super excited to let you know I’ll be partnering with Shinywant.com to bring special deals to my readership! I’m so excited. This company really does a good job. I have an ordering coming from them for a burlap make-up case too so I’ll let you know about that item too.

Disclosure: I received a sample at no cost via special code to order from the site and try out the shipping. Any opinions expressed are my own.

I’m Trying The Silk’n Infinity Hair Removal Device

Let me first give a shout out to Tryazon and Silk’n for choosing me to try the Silk’n Infinity Hair Removal Device and allowing me to host a party. I’m so excited to get the device for free. I can’t wait to see my results.

So what made me apply to host a Silk’n Infinity party through Tryazon? Well, I’ve been thinking about doing laser hair removal for at least a year, maybe longer. I’m 41 years old. I’m just tired of shaving for temporary results, ending up with razor bumps and occasional nicks. Plus, the more I learned about it the more I realized that gray or light colored hair couldn’t be treated so I figured I was on a time table.

I actually took the step to email a local medical salon. I had multiple areas I wanted treated but I figured I’d start with a smaller area first and see how it goes. That was, until I heard the price and time requirements. $250 for the first session and consult. Then 4-6 more treatments after that with the possibility of more depending on how my body was responding. Initial consult session being about an hour to an hour and a half. With each session being an additional $200. In other words, I was easily looking at a minimum of $1000 just for one small area. Larger areas cost more. Well I just couldn’t afford that. I also didn’t want to have to worry about what to do with my youngest kids if they’d be virtual learning. So I temporarily gave up the idea.

Then I learned that there are at home pulsed light devices. There are many brands and types out there but the Silk’n Infinity hair removal device really stood out. The device cost less than just two treatment session at a professional salon but has enough pulses to remove hair everywhere I wanted to. It is one of the few devices that are FDA certified. It has a lot of safety features in place.

I did an unboxing video on facebook live if you’d like to check it out:

The Silk’n Infinity is approved for hair removal from the cheekbones down so you can remove hair from:

  • upper lip
  • jaw/face
  • underarms
  • chest
  • stomach
  • bikini line
  • arms
  • legs
  • feet
  • anywhere else you might want to remove hair below the cheekbones

On exception would be no Brazilian style hair removal. They do not recommend using it on sensitive areas like genitals and nipples.

There are a list of “do not use” reasons for the device and what types of hair it will work for. I strongly suggest you check out the website for who can use the device and safety precautions. Check out the Q&A and FAQs section to help answer your questions before buying.

I will also be hosting a zoom party in March around March 13. So if you’d like an invite to the zoom party to ask questions and learn about the device just leave a comment and let me know. OR direct message me on one of my social media channels if you want to be be more discreet about it.

I’ve already done two treatment sessions. It’s super easy to use, it does not hurt at all. The safety features in place really make it easy to ensure you’re doing things right. I plan on doing an update post around the time of my zoom party. I also want to do another post in about 12 weeks as that is the average range for noticable permanent hair removal when sticking with the regimen. My first session took a little longer than the 2nd as I was just learning the device. All in all it only took me about 40 minutes to do ALL the areas I wanted treated.

That being said, I’ll give even more info on my next update and at my zoom party. If you have any questions now, just leave them in the comments and I’ll answer the ones I can.
