UNi 100% Organic Moroccan Argan Oil Review #argan


*I received this product for free in exchange for an honest review*

What I loved about this oil was that it was not only Organic, but it’s 100% pure with nothing added. I’ve read so much about the benefits of Argan oil that I couldn’t wait to try it out.

Unfortunately, it did not work well with my hair, which is what I was most looking forward to. My hair is very dry and damaged at the ends but instead of aiding to restore or moisturize, it just made my hair extremely oily. I tried several different things, using shampoo & conditioner, just shampoo, etc. Nothing seemed to work. This is no reflection of the company, just the fact that Argan oil did not work with my hair.

I also didn’t care for the smell. While some might say the smell is minimal and didn’t bother them, I’m scent sensitive and the nutty smell was very unappealing to me. Luckily, once applied to my hair, the smell of shampoo overpowered the Argan oil.

The oil was however wonderful for my skin. I usually washed it off of my hands because of the smell, but I applied it to my feet and it cleared up some dry patches in no time. Because you use such small amounts at a time, this bottle will last a while for us.

Brillante Manual Coffee Grinder Review #brillantecoffeegrinders

Here is a product review for Brilliante Manual Coffee Grinder from my daughter, Holly:

I was asked to do a review of this handheld coffee grinder.  As a coffee enthusiast, I was happy to oblige.  Normally, I always bought my coffee pre-ground, or used Keurig cups, so this was a new experience either way.

One of the positives of this product was clear off the bat – it’s a small, compact design, so it’s perfectly easy to store just about anywhere.  It also offers the ability to grind your coffee into different levels of coarse or fine, which is also helpful if you’re looking to have a variety of options for your brew.  I was looking to do a cold-brew coffee, so having the ability to get a coarse grind was a huge benefit!  I tried it on two of the levels, and it did make a big difference, and the coffee grinds pretty well through it.
There were also a few negatives.  The most obvious one being that, since this is a hand cranked grinder, it requires a lot of effort and muscle to get the job done.  Secondly, as most handheld devices tend to be, it was a bit unfriendly to a left handed user, as I felt that it was awkward for me to turn the handle the way the instructions asked.  Overall, I will likely keep using the product any time I was to have a fresher pot of coffee.
