First, I want to say that I was the owner of an omega juicer, which was great, except that when juicing, you get the pulp separated from the juice and so you lose all of that fiber. When i saw this infomercial, it intrigued me, because I like my children (2,4 & 9) to get their veggies in, but they will not just eat them plain, usually. So, I cook things with broccoli in it, I find other ways to sneak in their veggies, but when I bought my omega juicer, I was hoping for something more. It was a great juicer, but again, the fiber issue and the bulkiness and hassle of cleanup is what kept it in my cupboard and not using it. I was very skeptical about the nutribullet and my husband refused, at first, to let me purchase it, because he said to me "you've been watching infomercials again, haven't you?" lol anyway, I knew when i tried greens in my regular blender, the greens would get stuck on the blade and it just never worked, so when i saw you could use greens in the nutribullet, I immediately wanted one. I sold my omega juicer that i paid 229 dollars on craigslist for 150. Then, i convinced my husband to let me purchase this. He caved. I went to walmart and picked one up for 99 dollars and the first time I tried it, my husband was actually impressed! A week later, he's using it by himself while I'm sleeping for breakfast! We tried spinach, , carrots, kale, banana, orange, pineapple, apple, blueberries, grapes and strawberries, ice and flax seed whole. At first i kept wondering why they had such little flavor, but then i figured out it was becuase of the water. Think about it like this - if you juice a pineapple, and add water to it, you are getting watered down flavor. So, i tried doing half juice, half water and WOW!! the taste improved significantly. The best part about it, is that my kids LOVE IT!!! When i had my juicer, they did not like the green juices I would make, I'd have to mix it with regular juice to get them to drink it down. They beg me to make nutriblasts! Now, after all the raving I've done, I WILL say a few things that kind of concerns me. One, it leaked a few drops twice so far. I just take a napkin and I wipe it up right away, and it's not anything more than a few drops, so for now, I'm assuming it was my fault for not screwing on the blade tight enough. (i never overfill above MAX line, so i know it's not that) Two - I am scared to run it for too long because it's my baby and I don't want to mess the motor up! lol Three- It does not pulverize the flax seed as good as i thought it would and there are tiny peices of skin from some fruits, but definitely so small that it doesn't even matter. I am SHOCKED at how this thing turns a peice of lettuce into liquid. There are no chunks whatsoever and any skin or seed that you can see are smaller than the size of a dot you'd make on a piece of paper with crayon. You can't even taste it. Even with my juicer, i'd get bigger chunks/thicker product than the nutribullet!! No complaints from the kids or hubby about it. We are LOVING this thing! right now it's on amazon for 159. That is too much money, in my opinion. Try walmart or bed bath and beyond for 99. and make sure to fill out your warranty card online, then you get an extra 3 month warranty! We've been using it daily for well over a week now and it really is a fantastic product. It makes me full enough to not eat ( i could stand to lose a lot of lbs) and so that is one thing I am really digging about it. And we all know fiber is important in our diets, which is something the nutriblasts offers that my expensive juicer can not. Great products, if my kids are begging for it like it's a treat, then I would most certainly recommend this!! I've consumed more greens in the past week using my nutriblast than I have in the past year :) I'm sold. Definitely consider this gadget for your home!
My shoe repair guy uses this and it is really strong! I bought it to have it ready as I was so impressed with his repair on Leather. Not available atyour local big box store, or even Ace.
I wasn't a foundation wearer until I received a recommendation for this product. It goes on so light. It feels good to apply, too. Once it's applied, you can't feel it at all. It doesn't add a thick color. It just smooths out your face. I don't like thick foundations that make your face seem monochromatic. This is so light, your face still looks like skin! I know, amazing, right? It's just that your skin looks better. You have a more even complexion. The sun protectant is also a nice feature. I always apply this product over a moisturizer that also has a sun blocker, but you could use it as a sun blocker on its own if you didn't need the additional moisturizer.
I buy one every year. I love that it has info about other dates and holidays, rituals, poems, history lessons... pretty informative little book!
