NEOCELL Collagen + C Pomegranate Liquid Review by GeekGirlFinds

Let’s start off by saying this is the fourth product by NEOCELL that I have tried over several months and this brand and the results it gives continue to impress.  At this point I just want to shout out and say if you want better skin, stronger hair/growth and nails, “JUST BUY IT!” .  I have tried so many products over the years to increase my hair, skin and nail strength and appearance I should be in the poor house.  None of them worked long term and usually were a huge disappointment.  I am so happy to finally have found a brand that I can scream out “THIS ACTUALLY WORKS!”.

The NEOCELL Collagen + C Pomegranate liquid is probably my favorite so far,  Why you ask?  Well I love the fact that is super low in carbs since I am on the Keto diet and I can hide this stuff in anything!  I put it in my #KetoFlu water or in coffee and it does not have a strong flavor at all.  The consistency is a lot like a somewhat thick syrup. To make this special water I add one teaspoon to a big bottle of water (32oz) with “From the Mother” apple cider vinegar (2 teaspoons) and some NoSalt (just a pinch) and I am good to go and feel great.  Did I forget to mention the taste?  It’s incredibly refreshing especially for these hot summer days here in Texas.

What differences have I noticed?  Well my nails are freakishly strong, more so from even when I used other NEOCELL products and my hair is growing like crazy!  My skin is luminous and the dryness issues have for the most part dissipated.  People marvel when I tell them I am 44 and I remark “It’s not just good genes honey, It’s collagen.”  Since introducing collagen supplements in my diet I have reaped so many positive rewards it’s like I am aging in reverse!!!

I urge you to take a look at the NEOCELL line of product and see what works for you.  They are  readily available at many locations nationwide.  Please visit their site for a location finder guide so you can purchase these for yourself.  You will not regret it, I promise.

Morning Pep Xylitol 100% Natural Sweetener Review and Thoughts


Hello there!!! WOW I feel like it has been a bit since I have put up a blog post on here!!! Well it might have been a minute but I am super excited with what I have to share with you today. So recently a brand called Morning Pep sent me a bag of their 100% natural sweetener Xylitol. Now I do the Keto diet and I am always trying to find a natural sweetener that is low carb,low calorie, low glycemic and often they are too sweet or I feel like I need to keep adding more and more to get the amount of sweet I desire just right. I am sure some of you can relate. I know a lot of us whether we are Keto, Diabetic or just looking for a way to cut those pesky calories we are all usually looking for something we can feel good about AND tastes good.

My first impression was I love that it was granulated like sugar and I discovered that spoon for spoon it measures out just like sugar. Which is great because other than sweetening my cappuccino or other drinks I also like to play around with Ketogenic baking recipes. I get frustrated when using a sugar alternative product all the hoops I have to jump through to measure things out right. With this Morning Pep Xylitol I don’t have to worry about that at all.

The taste is excellent and usually a teaspoon in my coffee is all I need, that goes for teas as well. My husband which some of you know from my YouTube videos is picky as can be and he actually liked it and let me tell you he is not one for sugar substitutes.

While reading up on Xylitol I found not only was it a excellent way to tackle my sweet tooth without all the guilt but it has so many other amazing properties! Turns out unlike sugar Xylitol is ACTUALLY beneficial for the health of your mouth. I found these recipes for a toothpaste and a mouthwash.

Toothpaste:

1/2 cup of organic coconut oil
2 tablespoons of Morning Pep Xylitol
2 tablespoons baking soda
Add 8 drops of Morning Pep essential oils such as
Peppermint, Orange Oil or tea tree oil or combine them all!
Mix together and get ready for a beautiful, healthy smile

Mouthwash:

1/2 cup water
1/2 cup pure aloe vera juice
5 tablespoons Morning Pep Xylitol
2 tablespoons baking soda
6 drops of Morning Pep tea tree oil
Mix together and rinse for fresh breath and added oral health.

Morning Pep Xylitol is extracted from Birch not corn (not a fan of corn products) Birch trees are a slender fast growing tree that is chock full of all sorts of goodies our bodies love such as: Magnesium, Manganese, Zinc, Phosphorous, Iron, Sodium and Amino Acids. The bark of the Birch tree contains digestive, diuretic and anti pyretic properties as well. The buds of the Birch tree also have antibiotic properties. All I can say is this tree brings a lot of game health wise!

Morning Pep Xylitol is made in the U.S.A. and free of GMO, corn (I mentioned that), Wheat, Soy and Gluten. It is also Kosher as well. So no matter what your needs are and we all have a few this product brings a lot of positive to your body and your kitchen. For me it is something I definitely enjoy and have confidence it.

Keto By Design Weight Loss Formula Review by GeekGirl Finds


So for those of you that don’t know for the last few months I have been following a Keto Lifestyle diet with the hopes of shedding some much needed weight and to just generally feel better. I have to date lost just over 40 lbs and I am feeling so much better in so many ways. My joints hurt less, I have a lot more energy these are just a few benefits I have experienced.

Now after saying all of that during this keto diet journey there are times we have fallen off the wagon for a day or two, this is not an easy diet to adjust to. Before I went full force into the diet for about two weeks I slowly started to remove carb heavy items from my diet such as bread, pasta, rice and sweets of any kind. I knew I had to ease into this because carbs/sugars are like drugs.  In my opinion it was better for me to go slowly into this process rather than shock my system and set myself up for failure. At the end of that two weeks I had a major toss out of anything left in my fridge or pantry that I would not be able to eat anymore, it was a sad moment throwing all that away but I knew I had to do it to prevent temptation.

My first week of going full keto diet went really well. Thankfully the diet is so rich in fats you feel pretty satisfied with what you are eating. The second week I started feeling really run down. I had no energy, couldn’t concentrate and was experiencing some really bad headaches. I did some research into this and apparently it was labeled as the “Keto Flu”. So I found some recipes for drinks like Ketorade and a few others that would help manage the symptoms. Within a few days I was back on track again and feeling better.

My husband and I were still having periodic cravings for sweets or other high carb foods so we started allowing ourselves to take on “cheat” day a week. Now on these days we did not just eat all the bread in sight or go too wild, we had some restraint. Normal days on Keto diet we keep our carb intake to around less than 22 grams and when we did a cheat day we might do around 60 grams of carbs. We were still eating less carbs than a normal day before the keto diet. Now the issue of having a cheat day is you have to get back on that horse the next day and sometimes that gives you a set back as far as getting back into ketosis (fat burning mode). So I started looking at supplements that would assist with that.

Everything I read was saying to use ketogenic salts or Beta hydroxybutyrate. Everything I read about it seemed to suggest this was a great supplement to help you get into or stay in ketosis during or after a cheat day. I also found that it was super helpful in dealing with the keto flu symptoms that plagued my and my husband. So I started to research brands that seemed to have good reviews and one I came across was the “KETO BY DESIGN WEIGHT LOSS FORMULA FROM CREATED BY GOD LLC”. I reached out to them and asked if I could try their product in exchange for a review. Thankfully they responded quickly and I got my product to try very quickly in the mail.

I have now been taking this supplement for two weeks and just to REALLY test it I upped my carb intake a bit higher even though I was terrified I might stall my weight loss or perhaps gain weight. I am happy to report that during the last two weeks I did NOT gain anymore weight, in fact my weight loss seemed to pick up a bit more! My mental focus is better, less brain fog and I seem to be staying in ketosis more than I was before without this supplement. I can always tell when I get into ketosis because my breath gets a little funky and I feel like I need to keep brushing my teeth, let me say I am brushing my teeth constantly now. I am VERY pleased at my progress at this point with adding this supplement to my daily regimen. I look forward to starting off this new week of going back down on the carbs and seeing how great the results are with switching things up. I have a feeling I will be very pleased.

Glasstic Shatterproof Water Bottle Review


I absolutely LOVE this shatterproof water bottle from Glasstic.  I love that it is BPA free as that has become a concern for me lately as I try to live a healthier lifestyle.  As a family we are often on the run and I HATE drinking out of plastic bottles and I have thought about purchasing glass water bottles but I have the concerns with it breaking.  So this Glasstic water bottle solves all my concerns I don’t have to worry about harmful chemicals and shattered glass (I am clumsy).  The bottle has a nice wide mouth that you can either drink out of directly or use a straw.  The cap also locks to ensure your beverage will not spill in your purse or backpack.  Another nice added feature is piece you can use to clip onto a backpack, my husband plays Pokemon Go and I like that I can clip the Glasstic bottle to his bag when he head out.

The water bottle is super easy to clean.  I have run through how to separate the glass from the plastic for easy dishwasher cleaning on my YouTube video linked below.  Please note it is recommended to wash the silicone parts by hand.

All in all I think this is a fantastic bottle and completely worth the price.  If you think about how much we spend on water bottles at the store it really makes more sense to purchase a Glasstic bottle and just refill from home and you also have the peace of mind of knowing you are not putting harmful chemicals in your body as you hydrate.

To purchase one for yourself here is the website link:
