Oil is absolutely essential for healthy hair. It gives hair that beautiful shine and moisture that makes it silky and touchable and protects it from damage. But sometimes you have too much oil. It no longer gives your hair a beautiful shine, but instead coats it in grease and odor. So what is the best shampoo for oily hair like this?
A slow cooker – informally known as a crock pot after the Crock Pot® brand – is one kitchen appliance that everyone should own. They are small, simple to operate, save time and can cook all your favorite things – from meat and seafood to soups and stews! So, how do you choose which slow cooker to buy? Undoubtedly you don’t want to sacrifice the quality of the product or the money in your wallet, but you might be overwhelmed with all of your options. Lucky for you, we’ve made it simple. We’ve created a slow cooker buying guide.
Summertime is fast approaching, which means it’s time to stock up on mosquito and insect repellent. And these days, there’s no shortage of plastic wristbands that promise to keep the bugs away. Many of them even claim to be eco-friendly and all-natural. But do insect-repelling wristbands work? Or is it just an advertising ploy?
Tide Pods have gotten a lot of attention over the last couple of years, especially after several health scares in 2012. There were over 6,000 calls to poison control centers that year reporting children becoming seriously ill after biting into concentrated detergent packets. These detergent packets are not just made by Tide. Many other laundry and dishwasher detergent brands, including Finish, Purex and Ajax, make these packets. But, due to Tide Pods’ popularity, it took the brunt of the blame for these incidents. Which is why two years later people are still asking, are Tide Pods safe to have around the house?
I love kitchen appliances. If I had the space, my entire Christmas list would be filled with them: a stand mixer, stainless steel cookware, a toaster oven, an espresso maker, etc. But these things take up space, and they cost money, especially if you want to buy the best of the best. Viewpoints’ Best Overall winners in the small kitchen appliance category are no exception. The most expensive one costs well over $500 full price, so getting these products while on sale can be a great money saver. Amazon sales slash the prices of four of these winners, including blenders, juicers, food processors and coffee makers.
If you’ve been keeping up with Viewpoints lately, you know that we’ve recently started rolling out our Reviewers’ Choice Awards. So far we have handed out awards for small kitchen appliances based on consumer reviews and ratings. The top two awards a product can receive are Best Overall and Best Value. Best Value winners are both highly rated and affordable. But a holiday Kohls Sale has lowered the prices even more on two Best Value winners: the Mr. Coffee Programmable Coffee Maker and the Bella Rocket Blender.
Beauty products can be expensive, especially if you’re like me and don’t want to change to a cheaper product because you really like what you’re using. So when my regular products go on sale I rush to stock up so I can make it through to the next one. Nordstrom is where many go to get their skin care products and makeup, but it’s also expensive. The current Nordstrom sale on beauty products might not save you much more than a couple bucks, but that still might lower the price just enough for it to fit into your budget.
This isn’t the first As Seen On TV article we’ve written here at Viewpoints, trying to answer the question, “Does it really work?” From the Curl Secret to Ninja to the Worx TriVac, we’ve looked at reviews, handed out awards (to a few) and tested the ones we could so you would know if these products were worth buying. Right now there is an online Sears sale featuring some of them, but when you compare the prices to Viewpoints reviews, there are some you might want to think twice about actually purchasing.
You might have just over a week to finish up your Christmas shopping but if you’re hoping to hit up Wal-Mart sales without having to actually step foot in the store you only have four days left to get free shipping by Christmas, on purchases of $35 or more. And word is, Wal-Mart might be the best place to stock up on your Viewpoints Reviewers’ Choice winners before free shipping ends on the 20th. But which winners are seeing sales right now? Let’s take a look.
