Delicacies Jewelry sent me one of their products for “the Foodie Father”. Delicacies is partnered up with charities, so every purchase you make helps feed the hungry. You can read all about their backstory here.

I was sent the Thick Cut bracelet. This particular product that I was sent is made with highest quality silver, minimalist design, and an Italian leather band. It comes in a black, brown, or natural band with red trim, and you can pick which charm you would like. I was sent the Artichoke, which “promotes Peace, Wisdom, Partnership & Passion”.

I got the black band with the red trim. I like the bracelet, it is a simple but nice design. The artichoke charm is embedded on the front, so it does not have a “charm bracelet” feel. The leather is sturdy, but soft and comfortable to wear. The bracelet closes with 2 parts you can push through to secure and fasten, which is both easy and convenient.

I think it is a great idea for the “Foodie” man who likes simplistic jewelry. However, I also like wearing it, so no need to just be sold to the men! It is great for unisex, and I like how each charm/vegetable/animal has it’s own story.

Each bracelet is around $85.00. They are a tad on the expensive side, but they are made with Italian leather, and proceeds go to feed the hungry. Cheers!

AC Lens product reviews

Hi there!

I got some awesome products to try from AC Lens. They have almost everything you could need for your eyes, including contact lenses, solutions, dry eye remedies, and more. I was sent a few products to try out.

So let’s get started! I suffer from dry eyes, so I chose some dry eye remedies, alongside daily contact lenses. I wear contacts now, and I can get about 3 hours out of them before my eyes start to get unbearably dry. I was hoping these products could provide me some relief!

First up, GenTeal Severe Eye Gel Drops. The retail value is $11.95. The gel itself comes in a squishy tube, kind of like a mini toothpaste tube. The gel comes out slowly, and the tip comes to a point to which you literally have to squeeze the gel into your eye. It’s a bit odd, I wish they could formulate a way to make the application a bit easier. I know people who HATE putting eye drops in, since it’s so close to their eyes, and with this product you have to literally almost be on top of your eye.

That being said, the product works great. You cannot use it with contact lenses in, so I used it at night. It relieved my dry, sticky eyes and provided instant comfort for hours. Really a great product for dry, sensitive eyes. 4 stars.

Next up, Thera Tears Nutrition for Dry Eyes supplement.  The retail value is $14.95, which isn’t bad for fish oil. This supplement contains fish oil, flaxseed oil, omega-3’s from multiple sources, with a total of 1200 mg per serving (3 capsules). The soft gels are rather large, but easy to swallow. I ended up taking 2 in the morning, because I found that since they are not enteric coated, you get the “fish oil” burps afterwards, which I dislike about fish oil supplements. However, as a plus, it doesn’t last all day, like I have experienced with other fish oil supplements. IMG_2402

Honestly, I’ve been using the product for about a month, and I think my eyes are perhaps slightly less dry, but nothing drastic. I think further use is necessary to notice a significant change. However, as a plus, my skin seems clearer! Overall, 3 1/2 stars. Fish oil has a lot of positive affects on the body, but it is a blood thinner, so check with your doctor to see if this is right for you.

Lastly, DAILIES AquaComfort Plus contact lenses by Alcon. A 30 day supply values at roughly $22.99. I actually liked these! They were comfortable to put in, and did not bother my eyes. Sometimes I find with contact lenses, they do not fit comfortably and you have to throw out a pair. You never want to wear anything in your eyes that causes discomfort!

I will not lie, my eyes did require eye drops, as they got dry by the end of the day, but I must say I was pleased with these. They were not dry upon putting on my eyes like some contacts often do for me. They fit comfortably as well. They were a bit harder to take out than other brands I have tried, but this isn’t really a huge deal. Overall, very pleased. 4 stars

 

Overall, some great products. I will definitely be ordering from AC Lens in the future. The products are affordable, and it’s a one stop visit for your eye needs 🙂
