RECARO Performance SPORT Harness Booster Seat Review

Disclosure: I received a RECARO Performance SPORT in exchange for my honest review. All opinions and experiences are 100% my own and may differ from those of your own. 

The RECARO Performance SPORT is an Award-Winning Child Safety Seat in which meets all new FMVSS 213 Standards. RECARO Performance Series car seats all feature comfort enhancing memory foam, Cool Mesh ventilation and performance infused fashions. It also has the deepest side wings on the market which have metal reinforced side walls for racing-inspired, full body side impact protection. The ultimate protection for your child! The RECARO Performance SPORT is fairly slender and can fit three across in most midsized vehicles. This seat has easy adjustable no-re-thread harness straps, making adjusting the straps as your child grows so much easier! This seat will truly grow with your child with an upper limit of 65 pounds for harness use and up to 120 pounds in the booster mode! The 65 pounds for harness use accommodates an average 9.5 year old child. My daughter is 8 years old and a bit on the taller side, she weighs about 85lbs and fits in the RECARO Performance SPORT in booster mode perfectly! In all honesty, she actually asked me to get her, her own RECARO Performance SPORT booster seat!

RECARO Performance SPORT Harness Booster FEATURES!
  • Side Impact Protection - RECARO's Side Impact Protection is designed to distinctly protect 5 vulnerable areas of a child in a side impact collision - their head, neck, face, torso and pelvis.
  • EasyGuide Belt Guide - Whether in Harness or Booster mode each belt guide is color coded so you can easily identify the proper belt path and positioning of either the LATCH strap or vehicle seat belt.
  • EasyAdjust 5-Point Harness - Harness and head restraint are adjusted together so no re-threading is necessary to properly position the harness shoulder straps to the child.
  • ErgoShell Structure - The ProSPORT's shell is designed to offer child occupants the comfort qualities RECARO seats are known throughout the world for.  
  • SoftTouch Seat Cushion - Memory foam cushion in the seat of the Performance SPORT ensures a comfortable ride. 
  • Safety Stripe System - This one-of-a-kind racing-inspired white stripe, clearly visible on the outside edge of the 5-point harness, alerts parents to improper harness alignment.

We received a RECARO Performance SPORT Harness Booster for review. I chose to use this seat for Ezio who is 2.5 years old and weighs about 32 pounds. I absolutely love this seat! Super easy to adjust the straps and this seat truly grows with your child. The Performance SPORT is the perfect harness booster for transition from a convertible car seat to a booster and I highly recommend this child safety seat. 

Please don't fret, the hoodie he is wearing in his car seat is very thin and will not compress. This hoodie is no different then him wearing an undershirt and a nice shirt over it. In the winter months my children do not wear jackets or thick hoodies/sweaters in their car seats as they compress. 

For forward facing with a 5 point harness the straps should always be above the child's shoulders, as many parents know children grow rapidly. One of the things I never looked forward to doing with any of my children was adjusting their straps as they grew taller because as you know with the older car seats you had to completely re-thread the straps, with the RECARO car seats and many other new models you just grab the 'handle' and pull up or push down to the correct strap height for your child. SO much easier! The crotch buckle is also so much easier to move forward or back.

Before installing the car seat in our vehicle I decided to see if my 8 year old daughter would fit as this seat is said to fit a 9.5 year old child. Sure enough she fit! She is about 56 inches tall and weighs about 85 pounds. Yes, she is a big for her age, but I was very pleased that the seat did actually fit her properly and even made the seat belt lay properly across her thighs instead of against her belly which is dangerous and can cause harm when in an accident. Unfortunately for my daughter her height would cause her to no longer be able to safely use this seat. Please note that all children grow differently.

Installing the RECARO Performance SPORT.
Installation of the RECARO Performance SPORT was extremely easy! We use the LATCH system and didn't have a single issue securing the seat in our vehicle. Since the initial install we've had to take the seat out a few times for family members to use in their vehicles with Ezio and several of their vehicles do not have the anchors for the LATCH system so I had to install it with the seat belt. Installing with the seat belt was just as easy and I was still able to establish a secure and snug fit. It's really a simple seat to install in a variety of vehicle models and sizes, I've installed this seat in our crossover, my dad's large SUV, a mini van, a Kia Soul and even a couple compact cars. 

I definitely give the RECARO Performance SPORT Harness Booster a five star rating all around!

Leven Rose Jojoba Oil ($45ARV) Giveaway! US 5/12

Disclosure: What The Buzz Is All About got this product as part of an advertorial.

I have been using oils on my skin and hair for a few years now so when I found out I had an opportunity to try out Leven Rose Jojoba Oil I was really excited. I wanted to see how it compared to my other oils that I bought at the local salon.

Made in the USA, Leven Rose Jojoba Oil is 100% pure organic and cold pressed leaving all of the important essential elements in the oil. The oil is stored in a dark amber bottle for extended shelf life as oils are light sensitive & must be stored in dark bottles to protect them from oxidation. Oils not packaged in dark bottles will lose potency & become non effective. All natural and organic, nothing added or taken away, leaving you Golden Jojoba Oil in its natural state, making it easy for your skin and hair to absorb and nourish.

Leven Rose Jojoba Oil Uses:
  • Eyes and face to remove makeup
  • Face, as a moisturizer
  • To the body as a moisturizer
  • As a massage oil
  • Soften Hands and feet
  • Dry Scalp
  • Dry and frizzy hair, split ends
  • Dry, chapped lips
  • Cuticles
  • Acne
  • Beards
  • Stretch Marks
  • Stretching ears

My thoughts: OMGosh! I have found myself a new oil. I put the oil on my hair right after towel drying it and instantly I could feel the difference in my hair. My hair was so easy to brush and seemed softer too. Following my usual routine, I blow dried my hair next. Normally my hair would tangle while being blow dried but not today. I was easily. After finishing up I noticed my hair was not a big frizz ball like it usually is after blow drying it and my hair felt very light. After seeing the great things this oil has done for my hair I wanted to try it on my skin. First I tried it on my cuticles. I really wish I would have taken a before/after picture of my nails because this product makes a great cuticle oil. My cuticles are soft now and no longer bright white. Instantly my nails looked longer and much healthier. This oil is great on chapped lips and skin. I had very chapped lips and the Jojoba oil soothed them. After a little bit time my lips became very soft and were no longer chapped. I also tried this on my dry elbows and had excellent results. I really love how this oil is a go to for all types of skin and hair issues. I will be using this product as my go to product for now on. Forget the chapstick, lotion, and other oils because this does it all.
