IMPORTANT! Change of Blog Name

Hi All,

It's been a really long time... As you all notice, I cannot update my blog much often; I kinda miss the good old days when I was an active blogger. For almost 1.5 years, I have somehow neglected my blog due to my busy schedule. Lots of things happened during this period. I got married last year, I'm working more, I'm trying to establish my own translation company soon (which is one of my dreams), also we started to record our debut album with my band, etc. But I had one more dream, which was to buy my own domain. And I achieved it finally! Sweepstake Lover is "WorldWidely Things" anymore :) As the concept of my blog is international things, I think no name would be better than that :) I hope you love it and keep following me. I'm planning to be back!

*** REVIEW: Acne Mop ***

If you have an acne-prone skin, doing sports can be very problematic for you when you sweat. Thanks to Acne Mop, it's not a problem anymore. Acne Mop creates an anti-bacterial barrier between you and your sweaty helmet or sports gear by infusing essential oils (aloe-vera, tea tree oil, clove, white tea). The product is available as a headband, chin piece and shoulder piece. You can wear it on the sports field, or spa to keep your hair back, while infusing great products into your skin and to keep your pours open and clean. It is sold in a resealable 5 pack.

This is the headband.

I especially tried the headband. First of all, the product smells very nice and refreshing. After I wore it, I felt a nice cooling sensation, so it is very good for summer. It prevents your skin from being affected from sweating. However, it made my back-neck and back-ears a little itchy, but just a little. And don't expect any softening or moisturizing effect, this is just a cooling protective piece. And also one should be careful when removing the headband, because the liquid on it splashed into my eye while removing it :) I don't know if it is harmful, but I washed my eye with plenty of water just in case.

Unfortunately, the package was wet due to the nature of the product. Packaging must be done more carefully. Apart from the negative sides, the product does its job under hot and sweaty conditions. If you would like to get more details, please check their website Acne Mop.

About the Product:
For high-quality ways to protect your skin under the helmet, shoulder pads and open air! Athletes’ and military personnel's natural body oils collect and become trapped under their helmet, shoulder pads, chin cup, uniform, chest and back. The trapped oil is then pushed into their pores, causing acne to develop. Some people may use creams or sprays to prevent acne, but these topical treatments may not have time to set into the skin. Acne Mop is a disposable product meant to be worn for the day, or workout then discarded. Acne Mop is kept moist in a re-sealable container easy to grab and go. Acne Mop uses all natural ingredients like tea tree oil, white tea and cloves. So while you’re hard at work, Acne Mop is also hard at work, keeping your pores clean and unplugged, which means less acne on you.
• Increase confidence and self-assurance
• Apply a natural antibacterial solution directly onto the skin
• Get a comfortable fit under a helmet, hat, shoulder pads, or shirt
• Protect your skin underneath uniforms of athletes and military personnel

*** REVIEW: Anassa Boutique - Silver Grey Fringe Necklace ***

Jewelry is one of the things that I love very much - especially rings and necklaces. And I know that most of you enjoy these beauties as well. If you love large and chunky-type necklaces, then you will be happy to discover Anassa Boutique from Greece which is the guest of this review.


Anassa Boutique sent me the Silver Grey Fringe Necklace for review. First of all, as you can see below, it's quite a long necklace decorated with large shiny crystals and beads (pearls) along with one huge ball, which has nice details on it, in the center. Its length is 50 cm. It has a clasp closure, but you do not need to open/close it as it is a long necklace. Just put it on your neck, that's all. Although it is made with lots of large beads, it is neither heavy nor uncomfortable.

Very beautiful handmade necklace. Unique and handmade, this long necklace combines a silver metal ball, a grey fringe, silver and clear crystals and silver pearls. It can be worn with an outfit of almost every color and every hour of the day. Wear it and look like the classy princess you are!

It is obvious that there is a high-quality workmanship here. This is a strong and elegant accessory which can be worn daily or for a special occasion. Although I wore a grey body, the color of the necklace makes any color-match possible. Just to give an idea, it would be look wonderful with a white, buttoned slim-fit business shirt. Now, would you like to tell me if you like the items in this store along with your favorites? You know what? They sell not only necklaces, but also dresses, tops, skirts and very cute backpacks! Ready to discover? Go ahead!

*** REVIEW: Fibolica Hair Thickening Fibers ***

As I haven't received the product (Fibolica Hair Thickening Fibers) although the company shipped it (there may be customs issues), I cannot write a product review. This is my final day for the verification, so I just have to write an introductory post about this company. If I receive the product after that date, I will update this post with the exact product review.

From the Company:
Fibolica is simple and easy to use. Simply shake Fibolica onto the thinning areas on your head and watch as the hair fibers statically bond securely to your existing hair, similar to thousands of tiny magnets, instantly adding dramatic density and volume to your thinning areas.

*** REVIEW: abHair Wig ***

It has been a huge time since I last wrote. Marriage is a period of adaptation to a new life and managing your business life along with the daily chores takes a lot of time. So, I had to make a sacrifice and neglect my blog for a while :( I have some kinds of new things in my mind which I hope to make real soon :) This is my second review for abHair, a company focused on hair extensions and wigs. In my first post, I reviewed their hair extensions, which I also wore in my engagement ceremony and my wedding. This time, they sent me the "Long Straight Fashion Ombre Lady Sexy Wigs with Swept Bang" ($55.99 USD) months ago, but I can find time to write my review just now. Like my previous experience, this is the first time I have ever owned a wig! I have always admired them :)

As usual, the product came in its original packaging inside a plastic bag. The wig was put in a black thin mesh-fiber as a protective cover. There was also a black mesh bonnet to wear inside the wig.

First, you need to wear the bonnet in order to hold your hair together. It is a little tight bonnet, so it keeps the hair intact. After the bonnet, you wear the wig. You place the black inner piece on your head, position it and tie the black elastic ends which are adjustable. As it was my first time, I had a little difficulty in positioning and tying the wig with its clips. Then, I got used to it. Although the wig is made of synthetic fiber, it is a natural-looking piece. But it will make your head hot in summer :) Maybe I can wear this wig in my photo shoots or on stage, who knows :)

About the Company:
Thank you for visiting We’re the hair extensions experts! And, like you, we're passionate about our hair because it's an extension of our unique personalities.
Did you know that lower-quality human hair is placed in an acid bath that completely destroys the cuticle? That’s a problem because acid-treated hair has no natural shine, so it is covered with a silicon layer to give it a smooth shiny look. The problem is that after a few washings, the silicon comes off and the hair becomes dry and easily tangled.
The highest quality hair will not have an acid bath. The cuticle will be in tact and the hair will be soft, shiny and manageable. Our entire line of clip in hair extensions, hair wefts, fusion hair extensions and tape in hair extensions are all 100% human hair that has not been treated with an acid bath.
Depending on the professional manufacturing plant, we sell various hair extensions with high quality and unbeatable prices to satisfied customers worldwide. The reason why we can offer such competitive prices is that we source our hair extensions directly from the manufacturers. We do not use third party sources. So we are able to pass these savings to our customers. But we guarantee the style and hair type and texture are the same, so it’s always quality you can count on.
In addition to our knowledgeable and professional customer service representatives, we have a team of industry experts consisting of professional hair stylists, hair extensions specialists, licensed educators and hair aficionados. To keep you in the know, our Trendsetter's Blog will provide you with the latest hair extensions trends, hair fashion tips and news.
