Hyboflask- Water bottle 600ml (Amazon) : Review

GIFTED


  • Color : Black
  • Material Type : Stainless Steel
  • Volume Capacity : 600 ml
  • Brand Name : Hyboflask

The Flask

Firstly I took a look at the packaging, the logo was very cool as the middle line in the H reminded me of a wave. The box also showed me the other colours you can get, but I had went for black.

When I took the Hyboflask out the box, it had a nice protective cover which you could keep on or take off.

To be honest the flask looks good with and without the protective cover.

The Contents

In the box along with the Hyboflask you get :

1 x Bamboo Cap
1 x Drinking Lid and straw
1 x Cup cover
1 x Cleaning Brush
1 x Mountaineering Buckle

The bottle

The top of the bottle has a fold-down straw and secures very tight. The seal around the top of the bottle is also very good, as I have not had any leaks and I shook it around a lot to test.

The Hyboflask has a double-walled exterior with a vacuum seal between the walls. This means your drink will stay at its ideal temperature for hours.

Hyboflask is made from Stainless steel, and the bottle is free from other chemicals that are normally found in plastic bottles e.g. BPA or other toxins.

The flask will fit in standard size cup holders, and even fits in the holders in your car.

Test Drive :

I had to take this bottle for a test drive, as its the only was I can do a proper honest review.

I started with a cold drink, and took it to my work. I decided to leave it till around lunch time to see if it stayed cold and yup it started very cool.

Next day I took a warm coffee to work, and again left it till lunch time to see how it was and yup as expected nice and warm. I will be doing this more often, so I can have a nice coffee at work.

I took it on several walks in the park, and longer walks and again no leaks and a nice cool drink when I needed it.

Overall :

Note : Just because this was gifted, that has not influenced my thoughts in any way. The above is a 100% honest review of the Hyboflask.

As I said I took the bottle for a test drive.

I have no issues with this bottle, it kept my cold drinks cold and warm drinks warm. I experienced no leaks, which is good as I kept it in my backpack or on its side in my car etc..

If your looking to upgrade your current flask, or to get one that is really good and very cool looking then this is the one for you.

Pots & Co My 4 Pots : Review

Gifted


The guys over at Pots & Co sent me some of their pots to try, and hold a competition to win these sweet treats.

First things first was my top priority to try them and see what they were like.

In the past I have purchased a few pots from my local supermarket, and loved them so when they contacted me I knew heaven would be arriving at my door 🙂

The Pots

They sent me the following :

  • Salted Caramel & Chocolate Ganache x 2
  • Lemon & Lime Posset x 2
  • Chocolate & Hazelnut Praline x 2
  • Hot Chocolate & Salted Caramel Lava Cake x 2⁣

What a selection and all sounded very yummy!!!! so I couldn’t wait to dig in as soon as they arrived.

The Pots

I could have easily just had them all the day they arrived, as I have a mega sweet tooth but I decided to be good and have one a day.

Pots & Co : Salted Caramel & Chocolate Ganache

I decided to start with the Salted Caramel pot, as it sounded the sweetest from my selection.

OH! MY! GOD! I felt like I had died and gone to heaven with this one, every mouthful was just so smooth, sweet and so mmmmmm I was actually mega disappointed when I saw the bottom of the pot.

  • Flavour : 5

Pots & Co : Lemon & Lime Posset

Deciding what pot was next was a VERY tough choice but someone had to do it, and my next choice was the Lemon pot.

Just like the Salted Caramel pot, this was very smooth and had a perfect lemon flavour to it. For me most lemon desserts can either not have enough flavour, or way overpowering but for me this was the perfect balance in flavour.

  • Flavour : 5

Pots & Co : Chocolate & Hazelnut Praline

I am not a nuts person, so I only tried a little of this so my fiancee was the one that told me how it was.

She said it was very nice, and the chocolate and hazelnut created the perfect smooth and crunchy texture in her mouth.

Pots & Co : Hot Chocolate & Salted Caramel Lava Cake

Did I save the best till last?

I popped this into the oven and waited patiently on it getting warmer……then it was time to try.

I can understand why this is best served hot, the warm salted caramel was so mmmm

This for me was my second favourite after the Salted Caramel & Chocolate Ganache

Overall :

Firstly a big thank you to Pots & Co for my sweet treats, and for allowing me to run a competition for them.

I enjoyed every sweet treat, and have even gone out and got some more as they are really really good.

My 1000% favourite was the Salted Caramel & Chocolate Ganache!!!

Please do check them out if you see them in your local supermarket, or online as if you have a sweet tooth like me you will have died and gone to heaven with these sweet pots 🙂

Sons Men’s DHT Blocking Shampoo : Product Review

Gifted


The Shampoo

Our shampoo is formulated with saw palmetto which can help reduce levels of DHT in the scalp (a hormone that can cause hair loss) and it also contains argan oil, iron and vitamin B3.

During hair loss, DHT (dihydrotestosterone) is an androgen hormone that binds to the hair follicles leading to hair shrinkage and loss.  During this process DHT reduces the growth phase of hair which makes the follicles become finer, shorter and eventually in severe/late stage hair loss there the follicles do not exit the growth phase. Our shampoo similar to Finasteride works by blocking DHT and preventing hair loss.

The guys at Sons sent me an email asking me if I would like to try their product, I said as its always fun to try new things.

The shampoo arrived and it was time to try it out.

I have to state I am mid 30’s and happy to say I don’t currently have any hair loss but as you see from the above quote it helps prevent the hair-loss.

I decided every morning for a week use this shampoo before doing the review, as thats only fair as I like to try something first and give honest reviews.

Some shampoos I have used in the past left my hair feeling dead after using them, but all week my hair felt great and smelled great to.

I didnt notice any stinging in my eyes so thats a win, and no irritation to my skin on my head of forehead so another win for me as I have sensitive skin.

As I mentioned I don’t have hair loss…yet but this is also a preventative shampoo so thats why I agreed to try the product.

I have used this for about one week, and my hair feels great and also has a nice smell to it.

A big thanks to sons for sending me this product, and I have no issues recommending this to use or if you are starting to experience some hair loss.

I will continue to use the bottle Son’s sent me 🙂
