After hearing about all the healthy benefits of eating steel oats I finally got the opportunity to try them. I received the cranberry and blueberry Quaker 3 minute cut oats. They were better than I expected, very hearty, and flavorful. I always had the misconception that steel oats were stale and bland but that wasn't the case. This is possibly the healthiest breakfast you can eat, heart healthy with anti-oxidants. Great for maintaining your weight and lowering cholesterol. I'm making these part of my morning routine. I received these for free for my honest review because I'm a BzzAgent.

Mineral Infused Dead Sea Mud Facial Mask from InstaNatural. I like their line of anti-aging products because they're natural and holistic, affordable, good quality and aren't filled with shiny bits of glitter found in a lot of popular $100+ anti-aging products I have tried. The reason I love mud masks is because I like the feel of blood rushing to my face as the mask tightens my skin. It helps soften my deep brow furrow. I read that Botox was first created for that particular frown wrinkle, sitting between the eyebrows. This mask will definitely replace my old one. I like that it also has organic jojoba oil, healing aloe vera and shea butter in it too. Whenever I go out I slather on a mud mask for 45 minutes before showering so when it's rinsed off in the shower my skin is firm and my complexion is even and prepped for my makeup. I also got the opportunity to try InstaNatural's retinol in two forms. The InstaNatural Moisturizing Cream is nice, smooth, and light while still feeling the active ingredients working when it's applied. Not sticky or harsh with a natural soft pleasant fragrance. It also contains vitamin C and jojoba oil. Retinal is an anti-aging, wrinkle fighting must. You can't get around it. Everyone from Dr. Oz to your esthetician/dermatologist will tell you that. I also tried the IntaNatural Retinol Serum with vitamin E and Hyaluronic Acid. I like putting this directly on my annoying new pillow wrinkle on the side of my nose. It leaves my skin soft and moisturized. Very satisfied with the IntaNatural line of organic, Made in the USA beauty products. I think when I turn 50 I'm going to have to start a "50 is the new 35" blog with all these great anti-aging products I use! And the way time is flying, it's not too far away! I received these complimentary products for review in exchange for my honest opinion. BrandBacker

PRO-DENTAL Hyperbiotics from Hyperbiotics.com. Here's some science behind the benefits of oral probiotics. "REPOPULATE YOUR ORAL MICROBIOME. You might be familiar with your “gut microbiome”, but did you know that different probiotic strains populate your oral cavities? Your mouth is your first line of defense and the entry point for most infections. When your balance of healthy oral microflora is compromised by diet, disease, stress or antibiotics, you can quickly develop oral health related problems. With PRO-Dental, you can finally keep this often forgotten microbiome in optimal shape!" Receiving these for me was perfect timing since I've been suffering from throat, ear and upper respiratory infections lately due to my overcrowding dental issues. I like the minty taste of the chewable tablet too. I received a free bottle to try in exchange for my honest opinion from BrandBacker.

Garcinia Cambogia is a fruit found in Indonesia that suppresses your appetite. I've been taking it for approx. two and a half weeks and have lost seven pounds. I immediately felt full after taking my first pill. My problem is snacking and all those snacks add up! Surprisingly it held me back. But one day I forgot to take my pill in the morning and pigged out on menudo and coffee for breakfast and went crazy at Costco. Almost ate a whole bag of Jelly Belly's when I got home and popped a pill in my mouth! 911! Keep me away from those blueberry Costco muffins! Obviously the pill didn't work because I didn't follow directions. The directions say to take the pill 30 minutes before a meal with a glass of water. Seven pounds doesn't seem like a lot until you see a plastic anatomical fat replica of it! Yummy! Garcinia Cambogia from Summit Nutritions through Tomoson for my honest review. I've always wanted to try Garcinia Cambogia since hearing about it on Dr. Oz. This particular appetite suppressant supplement formula is 85 % HCA Complex of pure Garcinia Cambogia, vegetarian, Manufactured in the USA in a 100% FDA approved facility with a lifetime quality guarantee. I'm going to continue taking these with my Costco green tea from Japan and update.
