From CB: I really like the anti-wrinkle patches from BlumBody and think they did reduce the depth of the lines on my forehead. The effect lasts a few hours and then fades gradually but I haven’t seen my lines go back to where they were before. You can also use the patches before going out and you will see the difference. I also got the CLR calcium and lime remover we featured. I used 1/2 cup in my washing machine once it had water in it, ran a full cycle with no clothes and it really seemed to clean the calcium deposits. The next time I washed a dark load there were no white marks on the black shirts as usual! Here are some more things Hecate and I are looking at.
Lavender scented shower steamers to help you relax before bed
From CB: We featured menthol and eucalyptus shower steamers a few months ago from a brand called Cleverfy. I bought those and really liked them and am ready to try other scents. These lavender shower steamers from BodyRestore are supposed to be relaxing and calming. They have over 1,200 ratings, 4.4 stars and an A on Fakespot. People say one tablet lasts about three showers as long as you keep it to the side and not directly under the water. They’re said to smell natural and to provide a spa-like experience at home. “These tablets are amazing. The scent is so nice and lasts a couple of showers.” “I’ve gotten lots of shower steamers and all off the scents from this brand are AMAZING. It’s worth every dollar!”
Hydrating under eye patches to reduce fine lines and wrinkles
From CB: These hydrating under eye patches are formulated with collagen, 24k gold and snail slime, which I know sounds questionable, but I’ve used the moisturizer from this line, Mizon, and it’s quite nice. These patches have over 5,700 ratings, 4.4 stars and a B on Fakespot. You can use them on your undereye area and to spot treat other areas like your smile lines and forehead. People say they really work to reduce undereye bags and lines. “I love love love these they make my fine lines less noticeable. When I’m done on my eyes I just use them on my upper lip.” “The decrease in wrinkles from the hydration alone is noticeable, and noticeably better than the others I’ve tried.” “I wake up with puffy eyes every morning. These help de puff my under eyes with the cooling and moisturizing effect. They feel very comfortable, I forget that they’re there.”
A dried fruit gift tray that converts to a fruit basket
From CB: This is a lovely gift tray that you may want to get for yourself. It’s a tray in the shape of an apple that can either be served flat or opened to become a hanging fruit basket. It comes with tasty arranged dried fruit. This has 4.6 stars, over 4,300 ratings and the same score on ReviewMeta. Reviewers say that it makes a great gift that people cherish. Many people bought them for themselves too. “I bought two of these dried fruit baskets as Christmas gifts and the friends who received them were happy! They told my husband and me that the dried fruit was of excellent quality and delicious, and the wooden basket was very practical. So I decided to get one for us! Well, they were right . . . the dried fruit is amazing (and there is a lot of it) and I’m using the wooden basket as a fruit bowl! “ “High quality item with beautiful presentation; an amazing gift”
The sunscreen that doubles as a primer
From CB: I keep hearing about this Supergoop sunscreen and some of my friends swear by it. It’s definitely pricey but reviewers say it lasts a long time and that they’re amazed by how well it works. Supergoop Unseen has over 2,300 ratings, 4.7 stars and an A on Fakespot. Reviewers rave about it. “My friends got me hooked on this product and I can’t go back. It’s a great sunscreen that is sheer and doesn’t leave your skin oily or shiny. It hasn’t caused any new breakouts. It even holds up quite well in the water. If you are in the sun constantly, this is a must have in your skin care routine. The price may seem high for the small container but it will last you a long time.” “Feels like a primer. Completely clear. Not oily. No scent. Favorite sunscreen. “
A flattering v-neck maxi dress for easy summer style
From Hecate: This was on Amazon’s best sellers list and I thought it was really cute. I like it because it looks like it can dress up or down depending on how it’s styled. The knit top is flattering and the full printed skirt is fun for the summer. Plus the little cross at the neck gives it that little extra zhuzh. The dress comes sized small to XXL and cost $29 ($26 for prime members). Oh, did I mention the pockets? It comes in several different prints and two solid options. Over 5,000 reviewers gave it 4.3 stars that ReviewMeta confirmed. People who bought it said it fit in just the right places, “The waist hits just above the most narrow place. The fit in the chest is form fitting, but not hard to pull over my head.” Many mentioned the pockets because pockets! “I love all the styles and most importantly. The POCKETS. They’re super deep and super effective!” The reviews offer a lot of customer photos wearing the dress. It looks cute on all of them.
Stemless cocktail glasses so you can feel fancy at home
From Hecate: We use ‘fancy’ glasses all the time in our house, be it for cocktails or mocktails. The kids like them as much as we do. These stemless martini glasses are harder to knock over, which is a plus. And they’re only $16 for four. Each glass is an eight ounce glass which is nice when you are serving the kids juice but be careful if you aren’t measuring your pours. Over 8,000 customers gave these 4.8 stars and Fakespot gave them a B. Customers said they work great for most drinks, “We bought them mainly for martinis but they are also super for a bourbon, scotch or any moderately sized bar drink (they hold several shots with/without mixer and ice). Just love the stylish shape and their stability with the heavier bottom.” They also work great for frozen drinks, “The bottoms are heavy. We leave them in the freezer so they will be frosted for our drinks. We love that they are compact to store and won’t easily tip over.” A lot of reviewers mention these for RVs so if you like to RV, these should be on your next trip list. Also, they come in a nice gift box so they are good for gifts as well.
A gel nail color set for professional looking effects at home
From Hecate: Colors that have effects cost extra at my nail salon so I like the idea of having my own for when the mood strikes me. I love colors that fluctuate on the nail when you move it in the light. These gel nail colors from Beetles come in three different sets, each containing six color and design options. They cost $16-$17 per set, which is pretty reasonable for gel. I really like the colors in the Milky Way set because it has two tiger eye options. About 4,500 customers gave them 4.5 stars and Fakespot gave them a B. The tigers eye color requires a magnet wand (provided), so it’s not a simple paint and go, but customers said it turns out great, “So very pretty!!! I did not expect the color change to be as pretty as it was! You will not be disappointed.” Others said it goes on pretty evenly, “It levels itself so it won’t leave you with an uneven application and it’s thick enough to not flood your cuticles but thin enough to spread out evenly.” I suck at doing my own nails so I’ll probably still find a way to screw this up but I’m hopeful!
