Tribest Mason Jar Personal Blender Review!

There are few items I fall in love with at first try. The Tribest Mason Jar Personal Blender is one of those products. I had no idea how much I needed this until I used it. Here is a little info:
The Personal Blender comes in a Mason Jar Version that is compatible with most* regular-mouth mason jars allowing you to blend multiple drinks in separate containers without having to stop and clean a bulky blending jar for each recipe. 
The Personal Blender does everything a bigger blender can do, only faster and without the added mess and cleanup. The high-powered, 200-watt motor easily blends ice and frozen fruits and is perfect for making sauces, salsa, sorbets, soups, and baby food in under a minute! And with the stainless steel grinding blade that grinding dry ingredients such as coffee beans, nuts, grains, herbs, and even feisty flax seeds is a snap.
I have a blender already. It is pretty old and I rarely use it. I also have a small smoothies blender but use that even less. They both sit in my pantry collecting dust. The reason I do not use them all that often is that they are a pain to use and clean. The regular blender is clunky and big. It is hard to clean the blades when used. The smoothie blender has very little power and is messy.

My new Tribest Personal Blender is the perfect size and does so much more than any of my other blenders. What I love about it is the size is perfect for my smaller kitchen. It also allows you to blend in the mason jar or other container and then use the container. You can also blend and then store.

Here is what you get when you purchase the Tribest Personal Blender. It includes the blender and different containers including Mason Jars. 

It is easy to use. All you do is grab the blade attachment and attach it to one of the containers. 

The blades come with different attachments to fit on the regular container or the Mason Jars. 

I used one of the Mason Jars to make a smoothie. 

Attach the blade to the bottom of the container. 

Turn it over and blend. 

When it's done blending, turn it over again. There is no mess because the blade attachment stays on the jar and not the blender. 

Take the attachment off and enjoy. 

Add the lid and save for another day. 

The blender was great for making pesto. Plus, once I finished, I stored it right in the fridge for another day.

It also comes with a to-go attachment. 

I loved this blender. It is convenient, easy to use and perfect for my household. You can find the Tribest Mason Jar Personal Blender at mass retailers. You can also follow Tribest on Facebook

Re-energize Your Routine with HEALTHY ESSENTIALS® Products #Moms4JNJConsumer #ad

This post is part of the HEALTHY ESSENTIALS® 2014 program by Johnson & Johnson Consumer Companies, Inc. and The Motherhood, who sent me a box of products and compensated me for my time. Opinions, experiences and photos shared here are all my own, and I hope you enjoy them.

The other day, it was downright chilly in the morning. I was so excited because I know that although it is August that Fall is right around the corner. Fall is my favorite time of the year. But with the change of season, that also means I need to change up my routine.

One of the ways I prepare for the change of seasons is to change up my facial care routine. In the summertime, I am careful not to exfoliate too much because of the sun. I wear a lot of sunscreen on my face. I do wear lotion but not too much because my skin, in summer, is much more moisturized than in the Fall. I received this wonderful HEALTHY ESSENTIALS® pack that has help me do just that!

My skin gets ruddy in the Fall so I change up and revitalize my routine but using NEUTROGENA® Oil Free Acne Wash. The acne wash is one of my favorite products ever. Not only does it exfoliate my dry and ruddy skin leaving it moist and smooth, but it works on fighting any blemishes. Now that I am going through the Change, I actually started getting blemishes and this product helps keep my skin healthy and clean!

At 50, I need to revitalize my skin whenever possible. The wrinkles are creeping in and I am not a happy camper about it. The RoC® Deep Wrinkle Night Cream is the perfect item for me. I put on a little on at night and, in the morning, my face feels soft and rejuvenated! With an exclusive combination of pure Retinol and an essential mineral complex that is clinically shown to visibly reduce even deep wrinkles after 12 weeks’ use.
