Product Review: Fine Naturals Ultra Dark Cocoa Powder

In the midst of my insane life...with a toddler, a family, full-time PhD program, and two jobs... I like to do things that I enjoy to destress on the weekends. One of those past-times involves baking. I love to bake and I love cake... so I want high quality and tasty ingredients that produce the best possible results.

My Review:

I found the Fine Naturals Ultra Dark Cocoa Powder to be perfect for baking, it is fine quality, great tasting, and wonderful for any recipe. This certified organic and low temp processed cocoa powder has many benefits and works amazingly in recipes.
Here is my experience

1. I found the cocoa to have a perfect consistency, it blended well into my dry ingredients and did not clump.
2. The taste is rich, smooth, and not overwhelmingly bitter, meaning that it was processed with care and came from high quality cocoa beans.
3. This cocoa that went through a more refined process maintains its health benefits, which is a bonus and it lacks harmful pesticides.
4. The cake I made with this cocoa came out rich, flavorful, and well blended.
5. The price for the amount of cocoa you receive is actually very affordable.

I used this cocoa for my very special and favorite red velvet cake. The recipe requires a cocoa that will blend well with the dry ingredients and create a seamless cake. The cocoa produced one of the best cakes I have ever made, I cannot say enough about the high quality of this product, it was so rich in flavor and the consistency is like silk. I will never use another cocoa again.

Headband Set Review

I do not like having hair in my eyes when I am doing errands, it drives me insane. I tested out some bands that worked pretty well at keeping my hair at bay, here is the review.

I found these bands to work in a variety of ways.

1, These bands are great when doing housework. I used them while I was mopping, sweeping, cleaning, and thus wanted to make sure I did not have to swipe my hair out of my eyes with cleaner all over my hands. The elastic band makes sure the cloth stays in place and does not need to be readjusted.

2. I used the bands when I exercised, I found that they did a good job at keeping hair and sweat out of my face.

3. I used them outside when I did yard work and gardening. What I noticed outside was the band's thin material did not add weight or make them uncomfortable in the horrific Georgia heat.

Overall I think these are great is how you get them...

La Deessa Beauty Products, A Product Review

I am thirty-eight years old now and thus I have decided that I should at least have some sort of routine where I attempt to keep fine lines and skin at bay. I am not a fan of uber plastic surgery or overwhelmingly expensive treatments, but night treatments and serums are more my speed.  This week I am looking at the treatment line provided by La Deessa Beauty.

During this test I tried the daily serum, an eye serum, and a night-time serum for a period of weeks. Here is the product information and my results:


1. La Deessa Youthful, anti-aging elixer

2. La Deessa Ageless peptide eye serum

3. La Deessa Luminous Serum

Each of these products are effective and affordable, between $17.95 and $19.95 with free two day shipping for all Amazon Prime customers.
If you have any questions about my experience with these products, email me HERE 

The Entire System

his stuff is great, all of the La Deessa Products work together to create a beauty routine that will keep your skin youthful, tight, and soft. The Serum I use in conjunction with night products and the eye serum and together this system produces great results. Each product is easily absorbs, has no bad fragrance, and works great. My skin is softer, with less lines, and a great deal tighter than before I started using it.
I recommend this for anyone who wants to try a new beauty routine.
I also really appreciate the amount of natural ingredients in this product, especially because I have very sensitive skin, this product did not agitate it at all.
