From CB: I wanted to talk about the excellent percussion massager we featured a few weeks ago. It really works to get out the kinks and I feel so relaxed afterwards. I also really like the $99 HEPA filter we talked about. It worked so well I bought another one for my son’s room. We think the filters are making a difference with our allergies. They do make a noise like a fan, but you can sleep with it on. You can also set it to go off after a specific interval of 2, 4, 6 or 8 hours. Here are some more things Hecate and I are looking at on Amazon.
Exfoliating body washcloths that really work to smooth your skin
From CB: These exfoliating Korean washcloths are inexpensive at under $9 for a pack of 12. Please be aware that they’re way too rough for your face and should only be used on the body. The red is the most abrasive and I think green is the lightest. They have over 1,500 reviews and a C on Fakespot. People say they work like nothing else they’ve tried to slough off dead skin and leave your skin baby soft. “Skin rolls off and looks like eraser dust. It’s disgusting but satisfying at the same time. Great detox also. I feel like if you aren’t using these cloths you are not getting clean. Oh! And skin feels amazingly soft!” “I realized that I have been missing something in my bath routine until I discovered these. After the 10 mins soak when I started scrubbing I could see all the dirt and dead skin float on the water. I know gross but it does what I promises it will do. The shower that followed made my skin squeaky clean and super soft. Highly recommend.”
A stick-on LED backlight to reduce eye strain while watching TV
From CB: I don’t like to have the overhead lights on when I watch TV at night because they’re too bright but without them I end up squinting and getting eye strain. These easy-to-install LED light strips are specifically designed to brighten up the area around your TV. You just buy the size to fit your television. They come in white and color changing versions. They have over 8,300 ratings, 4.6 stars and a B on Fakespot. People say they’re easy to install and make such a difference when they’re watching TV. You have to go a few inches in to make the square on the back for most TVs and you should lay out the strips before taking off the sticky backing. “This thing is amazing! I ordered the medium length for my 55 inch curved tv and it works perfectly. I actually just bent the strip to make 90 degree angles and did not cut them – so you can do that too. Great value and has truly improved watching films and tv shows.” “I can honestly say it makes a huge difference (besides looking pretty damn cool). I never watched TV in a completely dark room before, because the TV would be so bright and hurt my eyes after a while. Now, I dont have that issue anymore.”
A deep conditioning collagen treatment that will transform your hair
From CB: We’ve featured CER-100 before and I wanted to talk about it again as so many of you have used it and swear by it. (I would have bought it long ago, but I’m allergic to beef and pork and cannot use products containing gelatin.) This has over 17,000 ratings, 4.4 stars and a B on Fakespot. Women are amazed at how well it works and say it smooths and conditions their hair like nothing they’ve ever tried. It’s also said to be more effective than the pricier hair treatment, Olaplex. “It has made my hair drastically softer and easier to brush. I have not noticed greasiness in my hair at all since using it. ” “I’m totally in love with this product, I have long fine hair but this doesn’t leave it greasy or weigh it down. I’ll definitely buy again.” “My hair has never felt this smooth and soft.”
A dark spot corrector for clearer, brighter skin
From CB: Burt’s Bees dark spot corrector serum has vitamin C and bakuchiol, which is said to be a gentle and powerful retinol alternative. This listing, which features other Burts Bees products, has over 7,300 ratings, 4.4 stars and an A on Fakespot. Reviews say this really works to brighten skin and fade dark spots and acne scars. One woman shared photos from March to June of last year that showed her skin cleared up so much. She wrote “The difference is insane. Some dark spots I’ve had for 1+ years and nothing would make them budge, and now they’re almost totally gone. It’s changed my skin!” Another wrote “Worked wonderfully on my sun/age spots on my cheeks.”
A flat front belt for sleek style
From Hecate: I’m a big fan of the French tuck so I still like my gaudy belt buckles. But I have a couple sweaters that need a nice, smooth line under them. Plus my daughter is starting to care about things like shirt lines so I’m getting us each one of these flat belts for our stretch jeans. The belts come in 12 different colors and belt buckle finishes and two different adjustable sizes, 0-16 and 16+. Both are $14 each. They received over 3,700 reviews and earned 4.5 stars from both Amazon and ReviewMeta. “This belt is completely comfortable for me. It doesn’t feel bulky and it makes my stomach lie flatter underneath my clothing.” and “No more time spent pulling my pants up higher every few minutes or letting them slide down and look sloppy. Wish I had known about this product sooner.”
A BPA-free silicone body exfoliator that’s so affordable
From Hecate: I came across this silicone body exfoliator as I was window shopping for bath products over the weekend. I use a mesh bath sponge but I get cheap ones and they always fall apart. It looks like it would be really soft. Plus it would last much longer than the ones I buy, so I’d be creating less waste. The silicone is BPA free. The larger size comes in four colors for about $7, and the smaller size comes in five colors for $6. They got 4.3 stars from almost 8,000 reviews and Fakespot gives it a B. Reviews say it stays clean so you don’t have to worry about mildew, “High lather and lost of suds. Soft and firm nubs (don’t know what else to call them). Very clean and fresh after shower. Great exfoliating without sand paper effect.” Another said it was soft enough to work on sensitive skin, “I can use on my sensitive acne and eczema prone skin but it also really gets off sunscreen and face masks and soap really well. And it’s very easy to clean!”
A reflective harness to keep your dog safe and visible
From Hecate: There was a lady with this great dog at the dog park that had a ton of energy. It wasn’t aggressive but it jumped up on every person it meant. She had this great training harness for it that allowed her to pick up the dog with a back handle and correct it without hurting it in any way. Our dogs are fairly well behaved but I’m still learning to read their behavior. Something like this would allow us to intervene without overcorrecting. Plus it has the reflectors so it’ll be visible when my kids walk the dogs at night. This particular harness is not an actual training harness, but it has the back handle and two leash attachments, one in the front and one in the back. It comes in five sizes. XS-XL, and 10 colors for $19 each. With over 11,000 reviews, the harness earned 4.6 stars and Fakespot gave it an A. Many reviewers talked about how well it fits and say it keeps their dog secure, “He’s comfortable in it, he can be seen, but he’s super secured now. Knowing I have control in an emergency is important!” Also, it’s endorsed by a couple of dog trainers, “I own my own dog training business and this is always my first recommendation when it comes to dogs who pull on walks! This harness combined with training is the best way to combat pulling on walks.”
