Quickly & Easily Pull Wine Corks With the Ozeri Extravo

If there is one thing that I just cannot accomplish, it's pulling a cork out of a bottle of wine with an ordinary cork puller. I can't keep the corkscrew in the middle of the cork, and I'll get bits and pieces of the cork in the wine. I'm a real klutz with a corkscrew. With many thanks to Ozeri, I am now an expert at getting those corks out of the bottle with the Extravo, an automatic electric wine opener that they sent me to review.

The Ozeri Extravo is a fully automatic electric wine bottle opener. It's a cordless handheld and lightweight to make taking out to corks a breeze. A bottle of wine is opened in seconds with no effort on your part. I guess that's what I really love about this.

The first step to getting a bottle of wine open is to cut off the foil covering the cork. Included with the Extravo is a foil cutter (that also doubles as a base for the Extravo).

The foil is quickly cut away to expose the cork at the top. Now it's time to get that cork out of the bottle

Simple put the Extravo on top of the bottle and push down. The Extavo automatically starts up and pulls that cork right out of the bottle within a few seconds.

The cork came out so quickly, it sort of boggled my mind. What a difference it was between the Extravo pulling out the cork to me struggling to get that cork out.

Click the button on the top, and the cork comes right out. The wine is ready to be poured and enjoyed. No pieces of cork in the wine like when I do it. Just great tasting wine.

Plus, there is no need to put that cork back into the bottle. The Ozeri Extravo also comes with a bonus pourer and stopper.

The Ozeri Extravo is a great portable handheld device that will automatically remove and ejects corks from bottles. It's stainless steel design will look great in every kitchen or on your bar. It's a cordless device that quickly and easily opens natural and synthetic corks. 

It has a built-in rechargeable battery that will open up to 60 bottles on a single charge. When plugged in to charge, a pretty blue LED light illuminates the bottom. Looks really cool in the evening - much better than what I was able to picture it.

With the Ozeri Extravo, I'm now a whiz at getting the corks out of bottles! Get the Ozeri Extravo at Amazon.

Seeking Silkier Hair, Smoother Skin, Stronger Nails? Attain It! #ActuallyOrganic 100% Pure Moroccan Argan Oil

I received a bottle of Actually Organic 100% Pure Moroccan Argan Oil to share with you for this review. I received no other compensation.

We have been living in a hot dry desert for over 23 years now. The detrimental effects of the harsh hot sun during summer is dramatic. Our hair gets dry and brittle. Our skin dries up and gets flaky. Premature aging is a factor living in a dry desert. That's why I like to arm me, and my daughter, with something powerful but totally natural to protect our hair and skin from the adverse effects of the sun and dry heat. What have we been using? Argan oil.

I recently discovered the best Argan Oil I could find. It's 100% pure with no additives or perfumes, and come directly from the source, Morocco, and it's from Actually Organic. For a millennia, argan oil has been cherished in Morocco for its healing properties. Today, beauty lovers and scientists have also discovered its restorative benefits for hair, skin, and nails.

The argan oil from Actually Organic has been sourced directly from sustainable growers and col-pressed to keep the oil pure and unchanged.

Argan oil has soared in popularity amongst beauty lovers and the Hollywood crowd, and has since attracted scientists, who have conducted many studies, with impressive results regarding the benefits of using the oil. Actually Organic was so impressed that they scoured all of Morocco - the only place where the Argan tree is naturally found - then lab-tested for purity over 100 different sources of this precious oil, and chose the purest and highest quality to pass on to you. Their Argan oil is sourced directly from Moroccan growers, and has been cold-pressed to give you the purest form of 100% pure organic Argan oil.

You will not be disappointed with this wondrous honey-colored oil; the oil that has been nicknamed “liquid gold.” Because the oil is non-greasy, when applied to the hair it can give a natural shine without looking oily. The lightness of the oil also controls frizz and restricts split ends, leaving even color-treated and damaged hair soft and easy to style, while restoring shine and increasing hair growth. As you can see with my daughter's hair above, argan oil has kept her long hair in excellent condition over the years.

Argan oil nourishes, restores, and strengthens over-processed, damaged hair. While adding a shine, and manageability, it also detangles and strengthens. It can also relieve and prevent dry and itchy scalp; and guard against dandruff, as it hydrates, protects, and nourishes hair roots.

When applied to the skin, this wondrous oil’s benefits are both healing and anti-aging. Argan oil is used to sooth redness of the skin, helps to clear and prevent the telltale scars of acne, can help reduce eczema and psoriasis, heal cracks and burns, and protects and heals skin infections. Argan oil restores elasticity, softens wrinkles and fine lines on your skin. With no perfumes, it does not bother my sinus allergies one bit.

Both my daughter and I are very happy with the Actually Organic 100% Pure Moroccan Argan Oil.  It's easy to apply with the handy pump spray (rather than pouring it into your hand to try to spread it in the hair).
