Holy Crystal

Where I Got It
Cost: $15.48
(You can find this item for cheaper on eBay and even on Amazon. I bought this particular one because I have prime right now. I can’t speak for other sellers, but my shipping experience with this seller was positive. It came in original packaging, well protected, and in good condition. I got two day shipping and had no issues with tracking.)

In the video I show each side, and how they sound when I use them. There is no talking in the video. Below I break my review down by reviewing each side separately in order of when they are shown in video. I also give each sides description exactly as written in the instructions that came with the crystal. Some of them are written kinda odd and confusing because they are translated from Chinese.

•Soft Silicone
Description: “Small soft tactility that have the function of blood circulation and massage.”
Review: This side is the side I find myself using the most. I am a tactile seeker and I have issues with picking my skin when my anxiety gets bad. This side is AMAZING for both of those things. The lil nubs are pretty soft and easy to pinch, pick, and feels nice to rub my thumb on. It’s a really great tactile feel, and makes a satisfying noise when you move your finger over them lightly.

•Button
Description: “Game controller button experience, using ABS material to enhance texture.
Review: These buttons really do have the same feel as a controller. They also make a great click noise. I like clicking all the buttons at once.

•Rotating Disk
Description: "Do you want to a rotating disk? You can come and try it.”
Review: This side is so nice!! In my opinion it’s way better than the one on the fidget cube. It’s textured, it clicks when you press it, very easy to turn, and is slightly raised. I like to turn it with both my fingers from the side. This is one of my favorite sides to use.

•Joystick
Description: “360 rotation joystick”
Review: This joystick is better than the fidget cubes as well. As you can see from the video it has WAY more range, and is actually like an Xbox controller joystick. It is very nice.

•Switch
Description: “You can have experience of the ubiquitous switch rhythm.”
Review: The switch has a very satisfying feel when you press it, and it makes a nice click. I like to put my whole finger on it and click it back and forth.

•Soft Button
Description: “People who like pressing ball pen can try it”
Review: In my opinion this is actually more satisfying than a ball point pen cause the button is silicone and feels soft and nice to push. The clicking feel and sound is exactly like a pen though.

•Sliding Blocks
Description: “Sliding the sliding block to adjust own life rhythm.”
Review: First of all, these all slide so smoothly and without and issues. I like the fact that the middle one is a little higher than the other two because it feels nice when I move them all up and down at the same time with my thumb. They are a really nice silent feature.

•Smiling Faces
Description: “Is a face very cute, it won’t be angry no matter how much you pinch.”
Review: These little faces are made of silicone so they are nice and squishy! Very nice to pinch! Also, they are great to just run my finger over. The bigger face that has its own side sometimes makes a pretty satisfying noise when you pinch it, if you pinch it right. All the faces are hollow on the inside, making them easier to pinch.

•Silicone Rope
Description: “Free shrinkage, it can be hung anywhere and not afraid of missing.”
Review: The strap is convenient for obvious reasons, but it’s also nice to fidget with because it is silicone. It is stretchy and it feels nice to roll between my fingers.

•Gear
Description: “The side has three gears which can be poked and rolled, spreading voice of clear and harmony.”
Review: At first I was bummed these where so easy to turn, but after I played with it more and more I began to like it a lot. I like just running my fingers over them, and spinning them super fast.

Final thoughts:
Over all I think this thing is great! Yeah, it’s bigger than the fidget cube, but that’s because it has a lot more things to fidget with! Plus, I personally like that it’s bigger cause the fidget cube would make my hands cramp up bad if I used it for too long. Its about the size of a baseball. It’s light weight and all the sides work great and have multiple ways to fidget/stim with them. I know that whoever designed these things probably got the concept from the Antsy Lab fidget cube, but in my opinion the Holy Crystal is way better than any of the fidget cubes real or knockoff. It’s a tactile seekers dream come true! I think anyone could benefit from this toy, but especially people with autism, sensory issues, ADHD, anxiety, and skin picking. If you need to keep your hands busy, this is the toy for you!

(If you have any questions about this item feel free to leave an ask)

Ohhhhh my god okay so I was falling asleep last night and I was kind of thinking about that scene where Dinesh is like “Jared have you been crying?” And Jared is like “yes but for ordinary reasons. Please, continue.”

SO i might be reaching a bit too far into this but it is likely that Jared probably cried in front of Richard and Richard had to comfort him in the garage when they were talking about the fake uptick.

thank you for reading my little realization

Any tips for transitioning from heat damage? 😅

First things first, cut off the heat damage. It doesn’t have to be all at once. But it’s easier that way in my opinion. Get a hair cut and go out and buy yourself some essential oils (coconut, olive, avocado, almond) and some deep conditioner. You can use home made DC (mayonnaise, honey, eggs, bananas, avocados, essential oils) or you can buy some for about $8-$15 from the store (here’s a link to some products I use). Use products that are sulfate and silicone free, sulfate will dry out your hair as if you were washing your hair with laundry detergent. Sulfate = BAD. Make sure you do a hot oil treatment before you shampoo your hair. EVERY. TIME. only shampoo once a week. Shampooing your hair washes out a lot of natural oils that protect your hair from the environment and life. Less is better. After you shampoo it use a deep conditioner. EVERY. TIME. Leave that DC on for about 30mins to an hour. So hot oil and DC once a week on your wash days. Always detangle/brush your hair very gently in the shower while your hair is soaking wet. After styling your hair, pick an essential oil to put on your ends, this protects them longer and prevents damage, which helps to retain growth. Doesn’t have to be done every day. 3-4 times a week on your ends should be fine. Wrap your hair in a silk wrap or scarf at night to protect your ends. DO NOT USE FLAT IRON. FLAT IRON, BLOW DRYER, SUPER HOT WATER = BAD. HIGH HEAT = BAD. Stick to these and your hair should retain length and grow much better than before. Good luck, babe 😊😘💖

anonymous asked:

HELLO yet again friend and also new friend mimi ♥ I need tips or if you could point me in the general direction of how one might remedy dry, frizzy hair. Whether it be shampoo,conditioner, creams, whatever. Thanks loves!

I have been waiting for this ask!!!!!!

Curly hair is tricky to handle because it’s prone to extreme dryness, which of course leads to breakage. Hair products are inherently straight-haired centric. Think about all of your favorite hair product brands, and think about how many of their products are specifically made for curly hair. One or two at the most, I guarantee you. Ever try using non-curly shampoo on your curls? You’ll end up with sandpaper! I even find that some curly haired products still leave my hair needing more (ahem Aussie) but anyway…

I’ve tried so many different products designed for curly hair, and none are even half as successful as SheaMoisture’s curly hair products. Hell, I even use a conditioner that is not specifically made for my hair type every single time I step in the shower and my hair still feels amazing. SheaMoisture is also organic and doesn’t use any bullshit chemicals in their products. Read their website for more info.

2017 has been my best hair ever and I am so excited to share with you my favorites! Some of these are $$, but they last several months so I personally feel that the investment is worth it. 

1. SheaMoisture’s Curl & Shine Shampoo. Curly haired friends- this is the shampoo you have been waiting for! This shampoo smells amazing (coconut and hibiscus, it really just smells tropical to me) and feels amazing. It leaves your hair feeling properly cleaned but not stripped of any natural oils. I know that many people that warn against shampooing your hair every day, but I get dandruff if I don’t. So I use this product every time I get in the shower. And it never disappoints. 

2. Shea Moisture’s Shea Butter Restorative Conditioner. Not sure why this is $27 on Amazon? You can buy it from SheaMoisture’s website in a smaller bottle for $6. Do you remember in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince when Professor Slughorn brews that love potion that smells differently to everybody? Well my potion would smell like this fucking shampoo. It just smells so goddamn good I can’t even convey into words. And it’s not specifically for curly hair!

3. Paul Mitchell’s Leave-In Conditioner. If you have curly hair, you should be using a leave-in conditioner on a regular basis. Your hair just won’t retain moisture for that long, and leave-in conditioner gives it that extra boost. SheaMoisture doesn’t have a leave-in conditioner? I don’t know why? They have what they call “styling creams” for curly hair, but it’s not the same thing. So I use Paul Mitchell’s lychee leave-in conditioner, which is not natural or silicone free. But I’ve decided that I don’t care, because it literally keeps my hair feeling amazing every day. So I’m recommending it. 

Method

I thought you might find it helpful if I listed my method for washing my hair? This is what works for me, and obviously it may or may not work for you. But hopefully this gives you some ideas to get started!

I like to wash my hair at night with shampoo and conditioner, and in the morning I’ll wet my hair in the shower and then apply Paul Mitchell. But if you like to shower in the morning, do your shower routine and then apply Paul Mitchell with your hair still wet. That should carry you through the day and into the night at the very least with amazing hair.

1. Shampoo. I like to lather my shampoo a bit before rinsing it out. I recently read this post when trying to find some good beauty tips for ya’ll. It recommends that you avoid shampooing the ends of your hair, because they dry out more quickly. You then avoid conditioning your scalp, because that creates more dandruff and bacteria build up. Read the post! Well anyway, I’ve been following those directions for two weeks now and noticed a change after two days.

2. Conditioner. Make sure to condition the underside of your hair and any layers you have! If you have oily skin like I do, I would recommend that you do your hair first and then clean the rest of your body. Because I get crazy acne from all the shampoo/conditioner remnants that are washing out of my hair. 

3. Leave-In Conditioner. Wet your hair (or maybe your hair’s already wet from the shower), and then apply a generous amount of leave-in conditioner to everywhere but your scalp. Again, read the post. If I’m working a nine hour day during the winter’s driest months, I bring Paul Mitchell with me to work and reapply. Did I mention that it’s lychee scented??

Well anyway, that’s my two cents. Those are the three best products I have ever tried. Hope this helps xx

Ollo if your still doing tarot readings could you answer this question for meh... What should I focus on in order to improve my friendship with I (let’s just call her I)? Which ever deck you think is best would be great and if you decide to answer thank you

hi there! A here, with the Tarot of the Silicon Dawn.

for you, I pulled the 6 of Wands. in order to improve your friendship with I, you should focus on making sure there’s a reciprocal exchange of trust and generosity. your relationship can be something wonderful, bountiful, and joyful - but only if both of you are committed to it, and no one feels like they’re giving too much and getting too little in return.

hope that helped, and best of luck!

Gendercat Packers

I have never thought that I would ever purchase a gendercat packer ever in my entire life. I thought it did not have enough detail for what I personally preferred and I was kind of turned off to them. Then I saw their product and met their owner at the Philadelphia Trans Health Conference.

 So the first thing that really surprised me was NOTHING on the prosthetic is painted. Okay, so what? That means that there is different color silicone inside your prosthetic making it so the color will never fade. Although I love transthetics, they have given me my favorite product so far, their paint does eventually fade or fall off making me more dyphoric. 

Two: The self adhesive genuinely works. I was so skeptical but even after hundreds of dudes had these willys on their hands, it still stuck enough on my hand to really wip it around and yet it never fell off. Huge pro! I have used adhesives in the past and I am just not a fan of the feeling of free forming adhesive.

Three: You receive a free pallet of silicone samples. FREE. Because they want you to get the best color you possibly can. If you do not find the exact color, you email the owner and he makes you new silicone samples and sends them to you…. FOR FREE. 

Four: The payment plan is DOPPEEEEEEEE. Probably the only company in the entire world that lets you recieve your prosthetic before you are done with the payment plan. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO WAIT TO HAVE THE FUNDS. I REPEAT YOU DO NOT HAVE TO WAIT ANYMORE. As transmen or nonbinary folk, we spend forever waiting for everything whether its hormones or surgery, Gendercat DOES NOT MAKE YOU WAIT.


Will post a review once my peen gets here. Consider supporting this amazing company. Plus their packers are so squishy and nice.

Milk Makeup Blur Stick

Okay so let me start off by saying, I thought this would be the weirdest product known to man. 

The product description on this item is: The universal face filter. Silicone-free Blur Stick minimizes the appearance of pores and fine lines to create a smooth, matte finish. Invisible matte coverage blurs pores and fine lines on every skin tone. Swipe for a smooth finish and makeup that doesn’t budge. Silicone-Free & Oil-Free formula won’t clog pores so skin can breathe. This product is vegan. All Milk Makeup products are cruelty-free

My review: I put it on after prepping my face with my UD prep spray and Farsali Unicorn tears. all i can say is… GOODBYE PORES!!! This product is a new holy grail. I have fairly large pores and this makes them nearly invisible. I was shocked. I actually use this product as a base and apply my primer over this product. The Blur Stick is silicone free which is great compared to benefit porefessional. honestly. for $36 i recommend everyone have this in their makeup bag. its amazing. Great job Milk Makeup!

thirtythirdmoon  asked:

I did some research and found a site that said the Sephora brand primer was silicone free, but the second ingredient I read on the product was dimethicone. Is there such thing as a good primer that is silicone free and more on the natural side? And is it too much to ask for it to be on the cheaper side?

Hey there!

Well firstly, Sephora did have their own silicone-free primer that was recently discontinued.  It’s unfortunate, because it was actually a really nice primer… probably the only one I’ve ever found that still performed like a primer while being silicone free (under $30 anyway).

Silicones are not necessarily bad for your skin.  The only negative to silicone in primers or other makeup products is that they can trap oil and bacteria in your pores while you have it on, which can cause breakouts.  Primer without silicone is hard to find for a reason - and that’s because silicone is the most important ingredient that makes a primer “a primer”.  Silicones fill in pores and lines, creating a smooth surface for makeup to blend onto, and they also help grip your makeup so it stays in place a bit better.  Primer without silicone is basically just lotion.  Personally, I usually just use moisturizer on my face instead of primer because I am very acne-prone.  A good moisturizer will plump up the skin, minimizing pores and rough texture to create a smooth surface similar to what you’d get with a primer!

There’s really no drugstore silicone-free primers out there (and if you guys know of one, message me and I’ll update this post!).  If you really want an actual primer, look for one where silicones are near the end of the ingredients list instead of near the front.  If a silicone derivative is in the first four ingredients, it has a high concentration of silicone and will be more likely to block pores.  For those of you who don’t know, anything in the ingredients list ending in -cone is usually a type of silicone!

If your skin is sensitive, try the Almay Smart Shade Perfect & Correct Primer - $12.  It’s a color correcting primer with swirls of purple and green (but don’t worry it blends out clear!)  The reason I like it is because it actually has a ton of ingredients that are great for your skin!  Glycerin is the second ingredient, which is great in a primer because makeup will stick to it and last a lot longer; it also has hydrating ingredients like squalane, ceramides and sodium hyaluronate, which helps the skin hold onto moisture.  Most primers, especially ones from the drugstore, don’t have great ingredients like that.  it’s also oil free, dermatologist tested, and made for sensitive skin!  (And silicone is the sixth ingredient).

I hope this helps you out!  Good luck in your primer quest!

How can I grow long healthy curls

basic tips ✨

  • don’t use heat: heat damages the integrity and health of curls, causing them to no longer form or break. heat includes straighteners and hot water too! cleansing hair with hot water causes dryness (which results in breakage) and encourages frizz 
  • use oils before cleansing & deep condition often 
  • use a sulfate free cleanser and a silicone free conditioner: sulfates dry hair out & silicones wrap around the hair shaft (which prevents nutrients from oils, etc to penetrate the hair) and can only be cleansed with sulfates. but sulfates are damaging, so it’s a harsh cycle 
  • massage your scalp: this helps stimulate growth & adds volume / definition to curls
  • be mindful of protein / moisture balance: products can throw off a very intricate balance that is essential to our hair’s health. some products contain proteins, some products are moisturizing, and some are a mix of both. if you notice your hair is perpetually dry (even feels dry when wet) & breaks or snaps, you might be experiencing a protein overload. if your hair is mushy and doesn’t hold a curl, you might be getting too much moisture. balance it out! 
  • detangle daily: knots & tangles cause breakage just like dryness 
  • sleep on satin 

i hope these tips help :-) 

anonymous asked:

I have really short hair. It's damaged. It never seems to grow. My edges are also really thin. How can I fix this?

what is your hair damaged from? chemicals or heat? either way, stop doing whatever you’re doing that caused damage! you can’t fully reverse damaged hair, it has to be cut off, but you can transition out of it. when new growth comes in, slowly snip off the damaged pieces. 

to promote new growth, try using sulfate & silicone free shampoo. or wash your hair with conditioner. sulfates strip your hair of natural oils & that causes damage too. your hair will especially benefit from conditioner washing & sulfate free cleansers if your hair texture is naturally wavy or curly. adding oil treatments & routinely deep conditioning will promote new growth too, while softening your damaged hair. i like to mix coconut oil, olive oil, & castor oil. i leave it in my hair for 40 minutes & then rinse & cleanse my hair. here’s some diy natural deep conditioner recipes! 

keeping your hair hydrated is the most important thing. if your hair is dry, when new growth comes in, your ends break & therefor it seems like your hair doesn’t grow. using a light oil on your hair helps add moisture. i’ve found that applying the oil while i’m still in the shower helps lock in moisture the best & prevents frizz. for your edges, i recommend castor oil. it promotes growth & thickening of hair. good luck!
