Daily Micro-Scrub
Dual Cleanse and Shave
Oil Free Moisturizer SPF 30
Daily Lip Care SPF 15

The Daily Micro-Scrub is a scrub that exfoliates the skin.  It will remove dead cells and other debris from the skin's surface leaving it feeling smooth and clean.
Dual Cleanse and Shave is exactly what the name states.  It cleans the face removing dirt and oil and can be used for a nice shave.
Oil Free Moisturizer is a light moisturizer, that will also protect your skin from the suns rays.

From POLISHED By Dr. Lancer:
This is a dermatologist-developed, tested and approved daily regimen that targets the specific needs of men’s skin and is powered by the highest grade, most innovative ingredients. It’s skincare for the man who demands better in every aspect of his life and refuses to settle for anything less than the best for his skin.  Skincare for men who would never settle for anything standard.

POLISHED is skin care for the discerning man, backed by Dr. Lancer and Seacrest, two visionaries in their respective fields. This superior-quality skin care is unlike any already on the market. This isn’t just any skin care with a celebrity’s name slapped on the label. This isn’t a women’s product repackaged and marketed to guys.

Mollie Ollie Mimmo Caddy - Organizational Gift

Hey neighbors!!

I LOVE the Mimmo Caddy (29.97) from Mollie Ollie.  It is a perfect changing station for babies, a travel organizer for baby's supplies, an art tote, cosmetic organizer, or a tote for whatever you might want to organize.  I wish every one of you could actually touch this tote and see how well made it is.

The Mimmo is made of a  5mm heavy duty quality felt material.  It has two dividers for the large compartment that can be moved around to where you need them.  Need it just divided in two, just use one of the dividers.  There are pockets around the outside of the tote for extra storage, as well as a zippered pocket on one end, that has loops inside to help organize your belongings.  It has two handles to make it easy to tote it wherever you need it.

Know an expectant mom?  Create a holiday basket for the newborn.  Grab a Mimmo Caddy, put in diapers, wipes, lotions or creams, powder, a pacifier, a thermometer, nail clippers, baby brush....  Know someone who knits or crochets?  Fill the center with yarn, add crochet hooks or knitting needles in the outer pockets, add a pair of scissors,...  How about a teenage girl?  Fill with cosmetics and hair care products, add a comb or brush, some barrettes or hair clips...  A young couple or even older couple?  Place a few DVD's in the center, add a few snacks, maybe a card game, a word find book with a couple pens... A beach fanatic? Throw in some flip flops, a small towel, sunscreen, sunglasses, a favorite book or magazine, wipes for cleaning hands....  I am sure you can come up with several more great gift ideas.

I am going to set this one up for my daughter who dabbles in calligraphy and fancy script.  I purchased some blank cards and envelopes along with a small calligraphy kit.  I will also be throwing in some special pens and markers.  Then she can carry her caddy with her and it will make clean up quick and easy.

You could even set one of these up for the man in your life.  Keep it in the living room.  Put a good book or magazine inside, place the remote in an outside pocket, add a pen or two, a favorite snack, reading glasses, he will have a place to put his wallet, cell phone, even keys if needed.  My husband is constantly misplacing his, and this would give him somewhere specific to put them.

So go visit the Mollie Ollie site and then follow them on their social media.

Milk + Sass Has Perfect Stocking Stuffers!

Hey neighbors!!

Some of you may remember a previous review we did of Milk + Sass products!  They have the Macaron Brush that my daughter loves!!  This year we are sharing the Macaron Brush, Sugar Twists and Milk for Hair.  They also gave me a heads up that they will be having a few other new products soon.  I am looking forward to seeing what they release!!

So, first things first.  The Macaron Brush quickly became my daughters favorite hairbrush.  She is 19 and has pretty long hair that often gets knotted.  The Macaron Brush helps with this problem.  She uses it on both dry and wet hair and it works!!  She also likes that there is a lid to protect the bristles, with a small compact mirror inside.  There is one thing we know that it does not protect from, and that is when your new puppy finds it and decides it is a chew toy.  So, she really wanted a new one.

Next are the Sugar Twists.  These also come highly recommended by my daughter.  She is constantly pulling her hair into a ponytail or messy bun.  She generally keeps one on her wrist, so she can pull her hair up anytime.  Now, here's a quick bit of information.  She purchased some generic hair twits and couldn't believe how much trouble, and pain it was to remove them.  She has never had this problem with the Sugar Twists from Milk + Sass.  So if you are looking for a neat little stocking stuffer, look no further.

The new item, that we have never tried before is the Milk for Hair.  This is a leave-in detangling spray.  It is made with Kukui Nut Oil and Vitamin E.  You spray it on damp, towel dried hair and comb in.  The weightless leave in conditioner will help detangle, smooth and condition your hair.  It has a pleasant, light scent of French Roses.

I am so pleased with all the products from Milk + Sass.  Can't wait to see what they have next!!  Hopefully we will get to share it here, At the Fence, with our neighbors!!

Be sure to visit the Milk + Sass website and get your orders in early.  Also follow them on their social media.

ToiletTree Gifts for the Holidays!

Hi neighbors,

Check out these gift ideas from ToiletTree. ToiletTree has many unique products for the bathroom and home. They are a family owned business begun Rockland County New York. They now have an office on each coast with warehouses scattered across the country.

One of the gift ideas you will find on the ToiletTree website is the Face Brush Skin Cleansing System. ($44.95)  This cleansing tool is to help you take care of your skin by polishing away dull, dead skin and exfoliating those impurities that seem to stay behind using regular face cleansing techniques. This handy, waterproof tool comes with two face brushes (one soft and one medium), one pumice stone and a body brush.  It runs on 4 AA batteries. It  available in 6 colors. Good idea for a gift or stocking stuffer!

The other item is for grooming for men. It is a Nose Hair Trimmer ($19.95). Now, I cut my husband's hair and he often asks me to trim hair in his ears or nose. I do not really feel comfortable using hair trimmers for either, and I am hesitant about using scissors. Well, the ToiletTree nose hair trimmer with LED light will now allow him to do his own trimming. It is also waterproof so it can be used in the shower if so desired. The rotary trimmer trims hair from the top and sides of the trimmer. It requires 1 AA battery which is not included. The trimmer can be used for the nose, ears, eyebrows or even trimming up the beard or mustache.

ToiletTree has so much more to offer for gifts for the holidays. You need to go visit the ToiletTree website and take a look around. Also take a moment to follow them on their social media.

Alpine Start Premium Instant Coffee #CoffeeGifts

Anyone who knows me knows I love coffee. They also know that I tend to be a bit of a coffee "snob", with very decided opinions about good and not-so-good coffee. For that reason, I'm not much of an instant coffee person. I might use it in baking every once in a while, but I haven't drank instant coffee in years and years...that all changed, however, when I discovered Alpine Start Premium Instant Coffee.

I received a sampling of instant coffees from Alpine Start for review. Quite frankly, I wasn't expecting much because let's be honest, who ever heard of premium instant coffee? Or instant coffee that actually tastes good? I sure hadn't up until a couple weeks ago! I tried the Original Blend Medium Roast coffee first. These are sold in a pack of eight, and like other instant coffees, you simply pour the packet into a mug, add 8 ounces of hot water, and stir. That's where the comparison ends though because this is instant coffee you will actually enjoy! It definitely earns the name "premium" and isn't just something you grab as a last resort when you need a coffee fix. The flavor is very rich and smooth, not that typical artificial instant coffee taste. This is an instant coffee I will enjoy having on-hand for any time I'd like a cup of coffee and don't have the time (or don't want) to wait for a traditional cup to brew. It also makes it easy to enjoy a cup of gourmet coffee anywhere and any time! Slip a couple packets into your purse or backpack, leave some in your drawer at the office, bring it hiking, biking, road tripping, or just about anywhere else you can imagine! No more frantically searching for a decent coffee shop on road trips, suffering through a cup of typical instant coffee on camping trips, or having a cup of bland coffee at work. This is instant coffee that you will enjoy!

Alpine Start also offers other flavors of instant coffee, so be sure to check them out. I can tell you confidently that this would make the perfect gift or stocking stuffer for any coffee lover!

Hey neighbors!

Love these two books from Soho Spark!  Soho Spark journals encourage you to write down your thoughts and ideas. The journals are beautiful and easy to take with you anywhere. Keep a travel journal, create a diary, use it to Spark new ideas for a business or just your future. These journals are a perfect gift for the holidays for teens and adults.

The first book is a spiral bound diary. Inside are lined, numbered pages, 366 pages total.  The pages are acid-free 80gsm that are perfect for fountain and calligraphy pens as it won’t wick or bleed through. With 366 pages you will have a page a day for a year. The cover is what drew me. It has a beautiful mountain scene. The pen-and-wash style watercolor painting on the cover is inspiring. This is a sturdy, well-made journal. ($19.99 but presently on sale.)  It arrives in a nice, white box ready for gifting. 

The second journal is actually a faux leather cover writing journal that comes with a high quality Soho Spark notebook inside. The cover is padded and very soft. It is embossed with an eagle in flight. The faux leather is actually vegan, 100% synthetic and animal free. Pages of the journal are numbered, 240, and are also acid-free and do not wick or bleed. The nice thing with this cover is it can be used over and over again by replacing the inside notebook. It also comes with pen holder loops you can attach. The journal is designed to lie flat. The size makes it perfect to take along with you to record your thoughts, memories or creative ideas. ($34.99 but presently on sale.)

Whoever you decide to gift with one of these beautifully designed journals will enjoy the gift and the thought that went into purchasing it. Throw in a nice pen for their journaling.  Soho Spark has several different cover designs that will speak to each writer individually, so go look around the Soho Spark website and find the one that will speak to the individual you are gifting it to.
