This month I am finishing up a bunch of product reviews that I have been testing out lately and clearing my commitments to start February with a fresh start. I have been so blessed over the past couple of years to have some awesome companies contact me and send me products to experiment with in our home. Today I am featuring the Cool Gelmat and Rich Glen Olive Oils with a giveaway included.
The Cool Gelmat provides relief from heat related conditions and has a unique heat absorbing gel that provides relief for up to 2 hours. It is a patented mat that you place on top of your mattress, or under your sheet, or inside your pillow and when you lie on it you enjoy a cooling effect. This is because the unique heat absorbing gel within the mat absorbs body heat, reducing your temperature and allowing you to enjoy a cool, relaxing and comfortable night’s rest.
I was sent the pillow size Cool Gelmat to review, RRP $79, and decided to review it as I thought it would be helpful with sunburn and heat stroke we sometimes face in our home. It is also helpful if you are hot during the night, have night sweats, migraines or if you suffer from hot flushes and are looking for a way to cool down.
As a family we found it really helpful during the summer months in our home and Matt has spent several nights sleeping with it underneath him. It is easy to sleep on as it is thin and soft/flexible to mould to your body. I also found it very helpful and easy for children to lay on if they have a little sunburn to take some of the heat away from their body. You can actually feel the difference when you lay on it and it really does cool down your body for around 2 hours.
We do not suffer from migraines or hot flushes in our home but I do know that several other women have the Cool Gelmat and find it really helpful when they have a migraine. It is the first thing they reach for to help them. With over 1 million products sold it really is a popular item.
The Cool Gelmat is available at most chemists, comes in a variety of sizes and is also available to order online at the Cool Gelmat website: http://www.coolgelmat.com.au I have one Pillow Cool Gelmat to giveaway to a lucky Seven Cherubs reader.
Rich Glen Olive Oils
I love a good tasty, quality dressing. I also love my salads. When I was asked to review some of Rich Glen's Olive Oil range I just had to say Yes immediately! Now I know this is not normally what I review on my blog but when I read that they make a Zesty Lemon & Lime Olive Oil and Poppy’s Salad Dressing I was sold right away.
Also, add that they are made by Ros and Daimien Vodusek who have four children and manage to balance parenting whilst running the business, I knew it was a product I wanted to promote. The Vadusek family live at Rich Glen Estate and are a family owned and operated olive grove situated on the banks of the Murray River in Yarrawonga, Victoria. They have won themselves a bunch of awards for the top quality products that they are producing and I highly recommend checking them out.
First of all, I decided to test out Poppy's Salad Dressing. Suitable for salads, seafood, meats, corned silverside and hot potatoes. You can also use this dressing as a marinade. I simply love the flavour. It has a sweet mustardy flavour with a little tang to it and I may have eaten way too much of it with my left over ham from Christmas. My bottle only has a little tiny amount left in the bottom as I enjoyed it so much.
Next I enjoyed trying out the Zesty Lemon and Lime Olive Oil. I absolutely love lemon and lime flavours and to have it in an Olive Oil is a treat for me. It is an aromatic and fruity oil suitable to be served with seafood, chicken, steamed vegetables, and salads. It can also be used in marinades and cakes! The ingredients are: 100% cold pressed virgin olive oil and fresh lemons and limes and that is it. I totally enjoyed it sprinkled over the top of my homemade bruschetta. So delicious!
On Rich Glen the website are mouth watering recipes, such as Zesty Lemon & Lime Poppyseed Syrup Cake, Lemon Lime Olive Oil Cake and Chicken and Cranberry Rice Salad. Today Rich Glen Olive Oils are giving me 2 packs of the above products to giveaway to Seven Cherubs readers. Awesome.
