Here and there lately I have come across items or products that I am really impressed by. As in, the-only-version-I-want-to-use-in-the-foreseeable-future impressed. Clouds part, the sun shines brightly, singing ensues… you get the gist. In no particular order, here are some items that I have discovered, used, and now love.
Oral hygiene seems like a very un-sexy thing to be excited about, but between my Quip electric toothbrush and the amazing Livionex tooth gel Brennan raved about on Into the Gloss, my teeth have never felt cleaner each day. And with the option for an automated refill subscription, I don’t have to worry about trying to remember how long it’s been since I last swapped out my toothbrush. Ain’t nobody got time for that. ̶A̶l̶s̶o̶,̶ ̶m̶y̶ ̶g̶o̶l̶d̶ ̶Q̶u̶i̶p̶ ̶i̶s̶ ̶j̶u̶s̶t̶ ̶p̶r̶e̶t̶t̶y̶.̶
This mug means business. I’d make a cup of tea at work and promptly forget about it, only to be greeted by a barely-warm cup of regret an hour later. Not only is this insulated travel mug sleek and minimal-looking, but it keeps my tea piping hot (sometimes too hot!) all day, closes securely, and even latches so I know it won’t spill in my bag. The lid also comes apart for easy cleaning, yet securely reassembles. And it comes in the perfect shade of pink.
After reading a couple, ahem, glowing reviews of Kimberly Howell’s Glow Butter, I decided to give it a try. Handmade? Pure botanicals? All-natural beauty and luminosity? Yes and please! I was hopeful and dubious all at once, but months later, I am a convert. I have noticed a real improvement to my skin’s texture and radiance, and I rarely wear foundation anymore. My skin is not airbrushed-magazine-ad perfect, but it looks like healthy skin, and I love that.
Any products you swear by? I’d be fascinated to hear! It is so satisfying to find a product that just works.
