Mother's Day Gift Guide 2017

 Mohu ReLeaf for Better T.V. Watching

For years I begged my husband to let us get rid of cable and just have the Roku. He wouldn't do it, so we end up paying a huge bill every month, just so he can watch live sports. Recently, I had the opportunity to try out the ReLeaf from Mohu, and we are FINALLY able to cancel the cable!

ReLeaf the TV industry’s first and only eco-friendly HDTV antenna that is literally built from ‘ditched’ cable set-top boxes. The ReLeaf offers unlimited access to free, over-the-air broadcast TV networks, like FOX, for a one-time fee. It’s the perfect gift to help TV lovers get the same channels and save some money. In fact, Mohu’s antennas like ReLeaf have helped customers save over $300M by reducing or eliminating cable bills.

What a better gift for mother's day then the gift of a relaxing shower or bath, and why not compliment it with Dove Beauty Bars. Which help mom looking soft, smooth and radiant. With ¼ moisturizing cream, it goes beyond cleansing, nourishing as it washes away the day… The secret to beautiful skin is moisture, and no other bar hydrates skin better than Dove. That’s because Dove isn’t a soap, it’s a Beauty Bar. While ordinary soaps can strip skin of essential nutrients, Dove Beauty Bar has mild cleansers to care for skin as it cleans. With our ¼ moisturizing cream, Dove Beauty Bar leaves your face and body feeling soft, smooth, and more radiant than ordinary soap. You can see why we call it a Beauty Bar. You might be a fan of the Dove White Beauty Bar, but with so many to choose from, why not try them all? Give mom the Dove Beauty Bar to suit any need. Our Sensitive Skin Unscented Bar is perfect for skin that’s easily irritated. For a touch of pampering, choose our Purely Pampering Beauty Cream Bar with Shea Butter and Warm Vanilla Scent. Or reveal fresh, glowing new skin with our Gentle Exfoliating Beauty Bar. My personal favorite is the Shea Butter I love the smell and how I feel afterwards.

For 40% of women who suffer with hair loss and the self-consciousness it leads to; finally, there is a discreet FDA cleared at-home product designed strictly for women. 

Theragrow™ is a helmet worn at home that harnesses the power of laser light to minimize hair loss and promote hair growth. It delivers the same precise wavelength and dosage of energy proven to rejuvenate hair follicles and effectively regrow hair. 

Only lasers with a wavelength between 670 and 686 nanometers can penetrate deep enough to reach the base of the hair follicles and stimulate growth; a depth of 3 to 5 millimeters. No other light source, including devices using LED light, can achieve this. 

By treating the base of hair follicles, Theragrow's proprietary cold laser technology ensures the mitochondria - the energy generator of hair cells - is reactivated. The mitochondria then produce cell energy that is absorbed by hair follicles stimulating new hair growth.

A definitive facial peeling gel which assists brightening, cleansing, detoxifying and conditioning the skin, generating a softer, fresher and brighter looking complexion. 

This mild formula includes a unique combination of ingredients to methodically and comfortably eliminate dead skin cells, surplus oil and residues hence leaving the skin feeling smooth and soft, resulting to a new healthy glow.

Application(Use this facial peel up to twice weekly in the evening.) Apply a small amount of the peeling gel onto dry skin. Using the tips of your fingers rub the gel into the face in small circular movements until you see a water-like basis. At that point, leave the mask on your face for 2-5 minutes. Remove by gently rubbing off, in the same circular motion (A tad more aggressively) getting the peeling effect. Keep rubbing until the mask has completely flaked off.  Keep away from rubbing onto the eye contour area. Rinse off any remaining residue using lukewarm water or a toner.

Over half of women experience hair loss by the age of 50. There are many women out there who experimented with hair color, straightening and other styling methods that involve chemicals that weaken hair. Also stress is also a culprit for hair loss plus hormonal changes. To fight the battle of thinning hair women typically turn to topical products which don’t deliver the results they hope for. Also, most women are not candidates for hair transplants.
For the many women who suffer with hair loss and the self-consciousness it leads to; finally, there is a discreet FDA cleared at-home product designed strictly for women called Theragrow™ $495 
Theragrow is a helmet that harnesses the power of laser light to minimize hair loss and promote hair growth. It delivers the same precise wavelength and dosage of energy proven to rejuvenate hair follicles and effectively regrow hair.

Theragrow allows the necessary wavelength between 670 and 686 nanometers to penetrate deep enough to reach the base of the hair follicles and stimulate growth; a depth of 3 to 5 millimeters. No other light source, including devices using LED light, can achieve this.
By treating the base of hair follicles, Theragrow's proprietary cold laser technology ensures the mitochondria, the energy generator of hair cells, is reactivated. The mitochondria then produce cell energy that is absorbed by hair follicles stimulating new hair growth.
The lightweight Theragrow helmet houses 40 individual lasers. It provides maximum scalp coverage to treat all areas affected by androgenetic alopecia, the condition suffered by most women reporting hair loss.
After the first treatment, the process of halting hair loss and rejuvenating your hair follicles to grow healthier, stronger, thicker hair begins. Laser light therapy targets the stem cells at the base of hair follicles. It’s working deep beneath the surface even before you see visible results.
The inventor of Theragrow, Tamin Hamid Ph.D, who is a former NASA scientist and Biomedical Engineer, is excited to provide a viable, cost- effective solution specifically for women who haven't seen adequate results from topical treatments. She explains, "women cannot take the only prescription drug available because it is only FDA cleared for men so this is a solution for women that will deliver results. More than 90% of women in a recent user group reported positive results from treatments delivering the precise weekly amount of laser light energy you get with Theragrow." 

Low-level laser light technology has been proven to repair, improve and grow hair in women. Within the first three months Theragrow leads to reduced hair loss and increased thickness and density. Within six months there's a fuller appearance and feel to hair with more body, there's also visible new hair growth at the top and crown of the head. At that nine month mark hair regrowth is significant.

Theragrow is used for 20 minutes, 4 times per week and you can read, watch TV, work on the computer while wearing it. It's quiet and cordless FDA cleared over the counter medical device to promote hair growth in women. It is not to be used by women who are pregnant or breastfeeding or have been diagnosed with cancer. 

I tried this product, I do have fine, thin hair, so I was excited. It takes time to regrow, and since I am offering this as a giveaway, I won't get to continue. But, I did enjoy using it, it was easy to set up, and didn't bother me in any way while I was using it!
