CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Tropical Traditions All-Purpose Cleaner Review & Giveaway!!

Thursday, February 2nd, 2012

 

I was one who was sold on all of Trop­i­cal Tra­di­tions prod­ucts since my very first review with them which was for their awe­some  Trop­i­cal Tra­di­tions Gold Label Vir­gin Coconut Oil.

Since then, I also reviewed and fell in love with their Dish Liq­uid which is Coconut oil based. Both of the prod­ucts I reviewed from Trop­i­cal Tra­di­tions totally exceeded my expec­ta­tions, and from that point on I knew I wanted to review more of these awe­some products!

 

 

 

This time around I was ecsta­tic to receive a bot­tle of their hot sell­ing Trop­i­cal Tra­di­tions All-Purpose Cleaner. Again, this prod­uct cer­tainly did not dis­ap­point and worked as excel­lently as I expected it to.

This fan­tas­tic Non-toxic house­hold cleaner can be used for kitchens, bath­rooms, laun­dry, for wash­ing your car or even can be used as dish wash­ing liq­uid! Wow!! I was so sat­is­fied with it’s per­for­mance in and around my house! It claims to cut grease and oil as well, although I did not test it out on that as of yet. I did use it all over my kitchen coun­ter­tops and appli­ances and it left a clean and shiny fin­ish! It floored me when I sprayed in on stub­born mildew stains in my base­ment bath­room shower stall too! I let it sit for about 15 min­utes and then gave it a good wipe, and voila! Stub­born gross mildew stains came off like a charm! I am super pleased with this prod­uct, and is safe to use around young chil­dren and pets!!

 

 

 

Here are some of the handy uses for this phe­nom­e­nal product:

 

Safe & non-toxic, this solu­tion is for all your household/commercial clean­ing needs! Replace all of your harm­ful, toxic clean­ers with House­hold Tra­di­tions All Pur­pose Cleaner! This envi­ron­men­tally safe botan­i­cal mix­ture con­tains no harm­ful deter­gents or sol­vents, no per­fumes or dyes, and is easy to use! House­hold Tra­di­tions All Pur­pose Cleaner is an enzyme-based botan­i­cal for­mula that can cut through the tough­est grease or dirt, and is com­pletely non-toxic.

Kitchens
Spray House­hold Tra­di­tions All Pur­pose Cleaner on counter tops, stove tops, ovens, refrig­er­a­tors and sinks and wipe clean. For more dif­fi­cult areas, let sit for a longer period of time. May also be used as a dish­wash­ing liq­uid in the sink or dish­washer. Put in soap dis­penser or foamer and use for hand soap. Cuts grease, wax and oil.

 

Bath­rooms
Spray House­hold Tra­di­tions All Pur­pose Cleaner in the bath­tub, sink and toi­let. Wipe and rinse. Also spray on soap scum, mold and mildew; leave on for sev­eral min­utes, then wipe and rinse clean.

Auto­mo­biles
Use 1–2 oz. House­hold Tra­di­tions All Pur­pose Cleaner in 1 gal­lon of water when wash­ing car.

  • Exte­rior: For bugs, tree sap and tar, spray directly on the area. Let

If espe­cially greasy or soiled, allow to soak for at least 30 min­utes or even overnight if nec­es­sary, then wash as nor­mal. Works great for remov­ing blood, grease, wax, dirt & oil!

Soot/Tar/Grease/Grills

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Tropical Traditions Coconut oil based Dish Liquid Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

Thursday, December 15th, 2011

 

 

If you are any­thing like me, you hate doing dishes to begin with, but we all have to or nobody eats in the house unless you invest in thou­sands of paper plates. I am rel­a­tively picky when choos­ing my dish soap, and it has to be one that cuts through grease and actu­ally cleans my dishes!

I had done a review last year for Trop­i­cal Tra­di­tions Coconut oil, and really enjoyed my jar that was put towards a whack of things like into bak­ing, used in skin care prod­ucts, etc! I was amazed with their coconut oil, and for all of the things that one can actu­ally use it for!

 

 

 

This time around I requested to review their Dish Liq­uid which is Coconut oil based!

House­hold Tra­di­tions Dish Liq­uid is free of:

•Fra­grances
•Dyes
•Petro­leum Sol­vents
•Res­pi­ra­tory and Skin irritants

 

 

The deliv­ery time was spec­tac­u­lar! I received my dish liq­uid within just a few days, and I was def­i­nitely impressed!  I did a load of dishes with it as soon as it arrived and really liked it to be hon­est, and it did not have a both­er­some or over­whelm­ing scent. I found that this House­hold Tra­di­tions Dish Liq­uid was just as they claim it to be, low suds­ing, safe on my skin, and cleaned my greasy dishes left in my sink from the night before! My dishes were squeaky clean! What more could you ask for? Another thing  that I noticed was how soft my hands were after using this prod­uct. Usu­ally after doing dishes my hands feel itchy and dry so I have to use a lot of hand creams and lotions, but I did not have to do this with Trop­i­cal Tra­di­tions dish liq­uid. I was very pleased with the results and I will con­tinue to use this prod­uct in my kitchen.  Just like the other Trop­i­cal Tra­di­tions prod­uct that I have tried, they have the best dish soap in my per­sonal opin­ion as it is top qual­ity and no excep­tion to the other prod­uct reviewed by their com­pany! I would have to give a huge kudos to another great prod­uct from Trop­i­cal Tra­di­tions! This com­pany rocks!!

 

 

 

Another thing that I just recently noticed on the Trop­i­cal Tra­di­tions web­site is that they have a Free Coconut Recipes sec­tion that were all kitchen tested, tried and true! It’s so astound­ing when you see the thou­sands of uses there is for coconut oil! It is used in bak­ing, house­hold clean­ers, cos­met­ics and so much more!

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks to the very kind and gen­er­ous folks over at Trop­i­cal Tra­di­tions, 1 very lucky Cool­Canucks reader has the chance to win one quart of their won­der­ful dish liq­uid as well! SWEET!!!!!

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Mad Hippie ‘no more crows’ Peptide Eye Repair Cream Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

Sunday, July 11th, 2010

 

 

 

When it comes to achiev­ing fab­u­lous, flaw­less skin many of us will try just about any­thing. Cer­tain ingre­di­ents have been hailed as the secret to per­fect skin. Black­head extrac­tors, facial peels, pore strips and exfo­li­at­ing gloves are just a few of the things we’ve tried. But it’s hard to sep­a­rate the best from the rest with­out poten­tially doing a num­ber on your skin and with­out spend­ing a small for­tune. Using a prod­uct that’s wrong for your skin can be like scrub­bing with a Brillo pad or lath­er­ing up with baby oil.

I was beyond ecsta­tic when I came across Mad Hip­pie Skin Care Prod­ucts! Mad Hip­pie Skin Care ( www.madhippie.com ) – Nat­ural anti-aging skin care from Port­land, Maine. Get younger, more youth­ful look­ing skin with Mad Hippie’s repair but­ter. Com­bin­ing the best nat­ural ingre­di­ents includ­ing Pep­tides, Resver­a­trol, Coen­zyme Q10, Coconut Oil, Pome­gran­ate, Green Tea, Acai Berry, Grape Seed Extract & more, Mad Hip­pie lit­er­ally helps hold back the hands time. Mad Hip­pie Skin Care donates 10% of all profit to Con­ser­va­tion Inter­na­tional as well which is phenomenal!!

 

mh

 

Mad Hip­pie sent me their amaz­ing ‘no more crows’ Pep­tide Eye Repair Cream to review and the results were almost instan­ta­neous! I just got this prod­uct a few days ago, and started to review it the day I received it. This prod­uct hon­estly went to work on the bags under my eyes imme­di­ately and I was overly impressed with the results!! It is a blend of White Tea and Pome­gran­ate and bat­tles wrin­kles, dis­col­oration & known for bat­tling bags under the eyes!

Mad Hip­pie Skin Care Prod­ucts just released a great new eye cream that works to heal aging, dull look­ing skin around the eyes. By com­bin­ing nature’s most potent antiox­i­dants with pow­er­ful pep­tides, Mad Hippie’s eye cream, “no more crows,” not only works to heal and reduce the appear­ance of wrin­kles, but is effec­tive in bat­tling dis­col­oration, swelling and the ever infa­mous bags under the eyes. The cream is a mois­tur­iz­ing blend of pome­gran­ate oil, white tea extract, argan oil, vit­a­min E, vit­a­min C and advanced pep­tide com­plexes that heal and soothe the skin, increase micro­cir­cu­la­tion and effec­tively pro­mote col­la­gen pro­duc­tion. By com­bin­ing the best and most proven ingre­di­ents Mad Hip­pie brings a prod­uct that is effec­tive against bat­tling aging skin, but does not break the wallet.

Mad Hip­pie will ship any­where in the U.S. and Canada as well which is awesome!!

 

The very kind and gen­er­ous folks over at Mad Hip­pie Skin Care Prod­ucts have gra­ciously offered to give one very lucky Cool­Canucks reader the chance to win a bot­tle of this amaz­ing ‘no more crows’ Pep­tide Eye Repair Cream as well!

    CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Tropical Traditions Organic Virgin Coconut Oil Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

    Friday, June 11th, 2010

     

    Coconut oil is both a healthy and great-tasting addi­tion to smooth­ies, shakes, and other yummy treats. Thanks to Trop­i­cal Tra­di­tions, you get noth­ing but the best!

    Trop­i­cal Tra­di­tions Coconut Oil is one of the first vir­gin coconut oils to be exported to the United States from the Philippines.

    Brian Shil­havy (founder of Trop­i­cal Tra­di­tions) dis­cov­ered the health ben­e­fits of coconut oil after mov­ing to live in the Philip­pines with his wife, Mar­i­anita. He believes that coconut oil made by tra­di­tional meth­ods is supe­rior to the mod­ern coconut oils found in stores.

    Trop­i­cal Tra­di­tions offers 3 types of coconut oil:

    1. Gold Label Cer­tifed Organic Coconut Oil
    2. Trop­i­cal Tra­di­tions Green Label Organic Coconut Oil
    3. Trop­i­cal Tra­di­tions Expeller-pressed Coconut Oil

    I found the oil to have a very rich coconut fla­vor, tan­ta­liz­ing to the taste­buds.  I even tried mix­ing a table­spoon of this oil into my cup of cof­fee (try it, you’ll like it!) and it melted instantly! When I used the oil as an after-shower skin mois­tur­izer it absorbed quickly and smoothly, leav­ing my skin soft, smooth and healthier-looking (not to men­tion smelling heav­enly!) The uses for Coconut Oil are amaz­ing, did you know that you can even cook with Coconut Oil?? I did not know that until recently! See all of the great recipes on the Trop­i­cal Tra­di­tions web­site by click­ing here! We made a batch of banana choco­late chip muffins with with the coconut oil instead of but­ter or oil and they were beyond just delicious!

    “Vir­gin Coconut Oil is a food, and is one of the best cook­ing oils you can use. It has been a sta­ple cook­ing oil for thou­sands of years in trop­i­cal cli­mates. As a cook­ing oil, its chem­i­cal struc­ture is kept in tact and there­fore is resis­tant to muta­tions of fatty acid chains even when used in higher cook­ing tem­per­a­tures, unlike most veg­etable oils. Research shows that the medium chain fatty acids found in coconut oil boosts the body’s metab­o­lism, raises body tem­per­a­tures, and helps pro­vide greater energy which can lead to weight loss.”

    gold_label_virgin_coconut_oil_32oz

     

    Here is a pic­ture of a gen­tle­man trans­port­ing organic coconuts far away from the pol­lu­tion of any city or roads in the rural moun­tain areas of Mt. Bana­haw in the Philip­pines, in prepa­ra­tion to make Trop­i­cal Tra­di­tions Gold Label Vir­gin Coconut Oil:

     

    This grade of coconut oil can be applied directly to the skin for con­di­tion­ing. It is great for elim­i­nat­ing dan­druff. As a cook­ing oil, its chem­i­cal struc­ture is kept intact and there­fore is resis­tant to muta­tions of fatty acid chains even when used in higher cook­ing tem­per­a­tures, unlike most veg­etable oils.  

    I defi­nately give Trop­i­cal Tra­di­tions a huge thumbs up, and rec­om­mend this great Coconut Oil to everyone!

    DISCLAIMER: Trop­i­cal Tra­di­tions pro­vided me with a free sam­ple of this prod­uct to review, and I was under no oblig­a­tion to review it if I so chose.  Nor was I under any oblig­a­tion to write a pos­i­tive review or spon­sor a prod­uct give­away in return for the free product.

     

    The very kind and gen­er­ous folks over at Trop­i­cal Tra­di­tions have gra­ciously offered to give one lucky Cool­Canucks reader the chance to win a quart sized jar (32 oz) of this amaz­ing Organic Vir­gin Coconut Oil as well!! SWEET!!
