SAMSUNG VR GEAR
Mobile virtual reality is now a reality. Samsung VR Gear with wireless controller, which you can now optionally bundle with a new Samsung 8 or Samsung 8+ handset, is available at Digicel. Use it to play games, watch movies, socialise with friends, or, according to Samsung’s website, “go on adventures you’ve only dreamt of.” The best thing about a virtual adventure is you don’t have to clear Immigration and Customs in Miami to go on one.
You’ve worked out in a new shirt a few times, thoroughly soaked it with perspiration, thrown it in the wash, only to have it come out still smelling like it’s been hung up wet in a gym locker for a week. You’ve got stink shirt. Rhone sportswear, available at Activ Angels, uses GoldFusion, a proprietary technology that dries fast, protects colour, and controls odour. The company prides itself on producing the best “anti-stink” workout shirts for men, and anyone who does laundry would certainly appreciate that.
The only reason some people like N,N-Diethyl-meta-toluamide (better know as DEET) is because it keeps mosquitoes away. Mosquitoes are not only annoying and can cause red, itchy blotches on human skin, but they can also carry a number of unpleasant diseases. Although the American Academy of Pediatrics states that the DEET is safe on children as well as adults, for those who want don’t want to take their chances, MosquitNo offers a kid-friendly, all-natural alternative. The citronella-based silicon wristbands and fun stickers available at Bay Market are safe, effective, long-lasting methods of keeping mosquitoes away — if you like the lemony aroma of citronella.
The cost of skincare products is kind of like the famous Sir John Harington quote about treason never prospering because if it prospers, “none dare call it treason.” Just change the words a bit and you get: “Great skincare products are never expensive: what’s the reason? Why if they work, none dare call them expensive.” Le Visage has started selling a doctor brand of clinical skincare products called Murad. Like all high-end, luxury skincare products, they are not inexpensive, although they are considerably less expensive than many of the other brands in the category. Do they work? For many women they work better than anything else they’ve every tried, at least according to their rave reviews. If they work for you, then they’re priced just right.
