Staying Hydrated this Summer with My New Kersty Tumbler

I normally consume healthy foods every day at most meals.  I am one of those skinny chicks so I don't diet to lose weight, rather, I eat a basic healthy diet that is made up of mostly fruits and vegetables, with some proteins and healthy fats.  This helps me maintain the energy I need to stay fit. One of the most important parts of my diet routine is drinking enough to stay hydrated, and one of my favorite treats is an ice cold smoothie.  Therefore, I was happy to receive a new beverage bottle to try and I did just that! I may have found the replacement for my old, war torn bottle I have been hauling around.

Made by Kersty, it's  a 30 oz. stainless steel tumbler that comes with a drinking straw, cleaning brush and tight seal lid. The tight seal is great because the seal does keep the lid on very well, which is needed when I have it in the car or there is a chance of the tumbler getting knocked over.

I quickly whipped up an ice cold and healthy green tea beverage in my new Kersty tumbler and gave it a spin.  I kept it with me nearly the entire day.  I have to say it did keep my drink icy cold, even when the ice finally gave out.  The Kersty has been tested thoroughly, and the results of those tests show the Kersty can keep liquids cold for a whopping 28.5 hours and beverages hot for up to 8 hours.  That's all day at the office for me! The second day, I tried out a simple smoothie of yogurt and bananas and took that into work with me.  I was happily surprised that by my lunch hour when I finished the smoothie that the remaining drink was still cold and had not melted into a gooey mess.  It really does keep drinks cold for a very long time. 

I also do a lot of camping and kayaking.  When you are out on the water all afternoon you need something to keep your drinks cold, and this cup does the trick.  However, a lot of stainless steel mugs get too cold to hold. I used to have one that would build up ice crystals on the outside!  This one does not.  While my club soda stayed icy cold on the inside, I was able to hold it without freezing my fingers to the bone.  In addition, because of the tight sealed lid, it also does a great job of keeping the bugs out of my drink when I'm outside or in my kayak.   

30 oz. is a pretty good sized tumbler.   You can see in the picture my hand barely covers half the cup, and it sure does hold enough water or other beverages for quite some time.  I can keep the Kersty tumbler at my desk at work or on my long afternoon kayaking trips and I don't have to constantly refill it.

Cleaning the straw is a breeze by using the included brush, but I also soaked it a bit in soapy water and it cleaned up just fine.  I also happen to know it's pretty darn sturdy, because I dropped it twice and it survived just fine!

The price can't be beat either.  For a product that can easily compete with more expensive well known brands, a price of $24.95 is phenomenal.  Many of my fellow kayakers have the Yeti tumbler, and I honestly don't see a difference except that Kersty has a much better price and in addition, it comes with the straw and cleaning brush.  It's a much better buy!

I was very happy to receive this great tumbler set in exchange for my honest opinion in this review.  I am definitely recommending this tumbler to anyone.

Repairing My Summer Skin with Anti-Aging Moisturizing Skin Care

Many of you know I spend a lot of time outside in the summer.  I kayak, camp, and hike nearly every week.  That means a lot of time in the sun and water.  I also noticed that doing all that doesn't allow me to take care of my skin the way I normally would at home.  While heading into the home stretch of the season I notice that my skin is a bit fried and can use some TLC.  It just does not recover like it used to since I am a woman "of a certain age".  In other words, I need a serious moisturizer.  

Replenish Plus makes a very good skin moisturizer, and it's serious stuff.  Skin2Touch High Intensity Moisturizer provides both care and repair properties to damaged or aging skin.  It's loaded with ingredients I love and is natural, vegan and organic.  It also contains one of the most important skin care ingredients; sunscreen.  

Jojoba and Grapeseed oils, two of my favorite for moisturizing and skin cell regeneration, are incorporated into the moisturizer.  It also contains antibacterial properties with the inclusion of Lemon and Lavender essential oils.  Anti-bacterial properties are especially helpful if you, like me, have breakouts or acne issues.  Vitamins A, C, and E are present to nourish the surface of the skin. Omegas 3, 6, and 9 are skin essentials that Replenish Plus included to protect the skin's lipid barrier and repair the barrier function of the skin.  All of these ingredients are perfect for mature skin because they repair and protect.  They also help in slowing the formation of new wrinkles and they smooth the skin, lessening the appearance of wrinkles that are already there.  

This moisturizer can be used all over the face and body.  My hands show my age even more than my face, so the anti-aging properties of the cream can help when applied to the hands as well. I have to remind myself that this is a concentrated formula, so only a small amount is needed to soothe the skin.  I find it's best to apply Skin2Touch High Intensity Moisturizer right after a shower and first thing in the morning.  

Replenish Plus uses only a cold process to make their products.  This means that high temperatures have not destroyed any of the properties the ingredients contain.  It also means that the product is fresh and pure while remaining concentrated and potent.  In addition, the products remain pure and potent because they never dilute anything they produce with water.   

Now that I have found the right all purpose moisturizer for my face, hands and body, I'll be ready to head into winter with my repaired and radiant skin after abusing it all summer long.
