Majestic Bombay Double End Dog Dental Tooth Scaler Tartar Remover + Stainless Steel Dental Inspection Mirror Review


***Tip from a professional: Don't use this if you and your dog are not comfortable working in their mouth.  If you and your dog do not have a very trusting relationship, then you and/or your dog could get injured.****

Over the years, I have had several jobs.  Among these jobs, the three I am proudest of are mother, wife, and vet assistant.  As a vet assistant, there were times I was given the opportunities to preform and assist in dental cleanings on dogs, cats, and a rodent or two. That is why I am very excited to bring you this review.

Upon first looking at these tools my first thought is why would you use a mirror while trying to scape a dog's teeth?  A dog's tongue does a great job cleaning in the inside of the dogs teeth normally, so while in human dentistry a mirror is essential, in companion animal dentistry not so much.  The mirror is useless so don't try to use it on your dog.

The scaler is awesome though.  It is very sturdy and great to get right along the gum line to scrape downwards on the tooth. After you scrape the teeth, you might want to flush your dogs mouth with some Virbac Oral Rinse.

If while scraping your dogs teeth, you notice a large amont of puss, loose teeth, or a gum line that is receding, you need to be sure to call your vet.  Sometimes, those things can be signs of bigger problems and will need to be addressed.

One thing I did not like about the scaler is it smelled really bad even before I used it.  So just be sure to clean it really well before you use it.  I am not really sure what the smell was, and I would hate for any chemicals to get in your dog's system.

If you are interested in purchasing the tooth scaler, you can find them on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00HFFYXNS/ref=oh_details_o01_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Majestic Bombay -Blackhead Blemish Remover Clear Tool Acne Pimple Extractors Review




I got the Majestic Bombay -Blackhead Blemish Remover Clear Tool Acne Pimple Extractors to help with my problem areas like my nose and chin. I was really disappointed to start with that there were no directions in the box, so I had to look up YouTube videos like this one below (I warn you, it is gross)

 From the YouTube videos, I determined that I was supposed to take the smaller end, press on my skin and sort of drag it backwards. Well let me tell you, the amount of pressure that I had to use to get anything to come out made the pain almost unbearable the first few times. After a while, I was pretty sure I got the hang of it, but still not 100% sure I am doing it right.

 The one thing that I do like about the Blemish Remover Tool is that it is very well made and strong. I've not had it bend or break yet.

If you would like to check it out for yourself, I found it on Amazon here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00BAZ7Y6M/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

They are currently $6.99 and available as an add on item via Amazon.

Weight Gurus Smartphone Connected Digital Bathroom Scale Review

The Weight Gurus smartphone connected digital bathroom scale is a bathroom scale that can be synced with your smart phone or tablet to help you keep track of your weight loss journey.

When using a Weight Gurus scale, you have two choices on how you have your weight displayed. One is the traditional view where is just tells you how much you weight.  For example if you weight 130 lbs, it will say 130.  The other display is called the WeightLess mode.  That allows you to have displayed how much weight you lost.  For example, the first time you weighed you were 148lbs, but now you weigh 130lbs, the scale would read -8. You can also switch between these two modes at any time.

With this scale you get the normal features as well like step on to turn it on and step off to turn it off, and the scale will actually auto calibrate once you turn it on.  Here is some of the other features that the Weight Gurus scale has:
Auto user detect. 8 user memory. Non-slip, scratch resistant feet. 4 ultra-precision weighing sensors. 400lb capacity. +/- .1 lb resolution. Durable tempered glass construction. Large weighing platform (150 sq inches). Extra Large, Backlit LCD (4.3"). Kg/Lbs.
Overall I personally like this scale.  My hubby has had some issues with it giving him really strange results.  He has been telling me that it has been like 75-100 lbs off when he uses it.  I've not had an issue though.
