Ozeri: CardioTech ProSeries Wrist Cuff Blood Pressure Monitor, Model BP01K Review #Ozeri

IMAG2260-1-1

Health and wellness are a big thing in this house. Both hubby and I try very hard to take care of ourselves, and sometimes the best way to do that is by keeping an eye on things like weight, blood sugar and blood pressure. Up until a couple weeks ago, we did that by sitting in that icky chair at the supermarket and using the communal blood pressure cuff to get an idea of where we stood. And then Ozeri made us an offer we couldn’t refuse. Would we like to try and review their CardioTech Pro Series Wrist Cuff Blood Pressure Monitor (Model BP01K)? They didn’t have to ask twice.

This little Ozeri cuff packs all the features of it’s big brothers at the supermarket into a package smaller than your coffee cup. We both dove right in to find that this Ozeri wrist cuff has a plethora features, not the least of which is a memory function for two different people, for over 180 entries (!!) tracked. So tracking your blood pressure is a breeze. Did I mention that batteries are included? Have I mentioned how much I love that? Batteries are included (2AA) and I love that. Three buttons with a big, easy to read display LCD display. I would like to see it back-lit (for that you need to upgrade to the BP2M model), but at this price point it’s not a detriment at all. And since both hubby and I have family with a history of hypertension, the Automatic Hypertension Indicator is appreciated. It will also notify you of any detected arrhythmia. It’s quick, it’s painless. It fits pretty much any wrist easily and comfortably. This little guy is a winner, and something no home should be without.

Retail Price Point: $32.95 via Amazon and the product comes with a 5-year Warranty

I usually try to nitpick anything I get to try, because I’d want to know if I was buying this what I could find wrong. If I were pressed, I would say that there are cheaper ones out there. But then it becomes a game of “How cheap should one be with one’s health?”. Build quality matters. Component quality matters. We’ve owned Ozeri products in the past, and they are built well and built to last. So for my money, Ozeri has earned my trust. I think you can trust them too.

Xtava: Professional 5-in-1 Curling Iron Model No. XA0041 Review #Curler5in1

IMAG2276

With all the hair wands, curlers, rods, irons and so forth, I went from having my hair care items stored under the sink, then assigned a drawer to them, to later having a shelf in the closet dedicated to them. I’m about to move them into a box until Xtava’s 5-in-1 curling iron arrived!

IMAG2277

Xtava was the answer to my needs and their 5-in-1 professional curling iron does it all and then some. The best part, everything attaches to a singular wand. Think of it like having a drill and you would not buy a drill to go with just one drill bit…..that would be silly even though that is exactly what I did with my styling tools.

Xtava’s 5-in-1 curling iron, Model #XA0041 Features:

  • One wand
  • 5 different ceramic barrels
  • 1.25″/1.25″
  • 1″/1″
  • 0.7″/1″ (tapers down)
  • 0.75″/0.75″
  • 0.3″/0.75″ (tapers down)
  • Ceramic Tourmaline Technology
  • 360 degree Swivel cord, which is a comfortable 8 feet in length
  • Shut-off safety function in case you get busy and forget
  • Also a nice storage bag to keep everything again in one place and easy to grab

The 5 barrels vary in sizes from the larger one producing nice bouncy waves, to the one after giving you tighter curls. You then move on down to smaller circumferences, which allows you to add detail, volume, and nothings gets missed. You can style any length of hair and Xtava’s 5-in-1 curling iron can handle it all. This is perfect for me because I like to change how I wear my hair and that means my needs change by my hair-do. I was able to comfortably curl my hair quickly and safely, with ease and produce a style that I was absolutely delighted with. I don’t have to make excuses now on why I don’t have time and/or want to curl my hair, because Xtava’s 5-in-1 curling iron could handle my very long strands with care and what was best…..super quick and this was for a full hair down style. I was done in 10 minutes!

Retail Price Point: $39.99 via Xtava and also available on Amazon

The wands easily connect with a simple twist on and stay in place (locked) until you are finished. I found them easy to use and change while styling. The barrels of each attachment are smooth and flawless, so no hairs were pulled or yanked on while I used the product. The heat output is nice and has a maximum temperature of 410 degrees. The output seems to depend on the size of the attachment you use and the unit does not allow for heat temperature selection, so you go by “time curling” when styling. Once plugged in, you can begin styling in 2 minutes! Told you it was fast. Also, the unit comes with a 5-year warranty because Xtava stands by it’s products.

 

Final Verdict:
Probably one of my shortest verdict’s and to the point, I now have this one iron because it replaced and added more than what I had before. I just have a flat iron and my blow dryers, so back to the drawer where I can use them regularly they go! One very happy girl and this would make an perfect Valentine’s Day gift!
