An ice roller to reduce puffiness and treat migraines, a bedside shelf and more

I ordered the Tree of Life Vitamin C serum finally, it was only $10 and it’s ok that I’m getting more serums since I ran out of the retinol part of my three serum Eve Hansen set. It’s amazing, I woke up with smoother skin and I could really tell the difference after just a few days! It definitely lives up to the hype. I also got the Eva Naturals Vitamin C serum as a gift for a friend. I told her she had to report back on it. Oh and the Shark vacuum is excellent! I found it refurbished for $90 (it’s more now) so I saved on that. It was gross how much hair and dirt it picked up. I didn’t think my area rugs were that nasty before using that.

Extra pure virgin coconut oil that has so many uses
This virgin coconut oil by Coco and Company has 4.7 stars, over 3,000 reviews and an A from Fakespot! It’s less than $20 for 8 ounces or you can try 2 ounces for $10. Reviewers love it and say it has “a silky, soft, smooth feel with a satin finish,” that it smells amazing unlike other coconut oils and that a little goes a long way. It can be used for removing makeup, as a conditioner for hair, and as a cream for the face and body. One reviewer says it has “all the nourishing and hydrating benefits of coconut oil without clogging my pores.”

A pore-shrinking skin smoothing serum for $10
A couple of you mentioned this niacinamide and zinc serum by The Ordinary in our last post. Emma said “ it literally saved my skin. It makes a HUGE difference in tone, texture, spots, etc.” This has 4 stars, over 400 reviews and an A from Fakespot. Plus it’s less than $10 for an ounce. Reviewers say they’re in love with it, that it fades acne scars and is “gentle on my skin” and “provides a good base for makeup.” One reviewer says it has shrunk her pores “to almost nothing.”

A ramp to help your furry friend get to the car or couch
This foldable dog ramp by Pet Gear is the number one seller in dog travel ramps on Amazon. It ranges from $55 to $120 depending on the size and it has 4.1 stars, over 670 reviews and an A from Fakespot. Pet owners call it “high quality” and “very sturdy” and say that has “a good balance of strength and weight.” It is also said to be “light and easy to move in and out of the car” and easy to learn and use for dogs. If you’re looking for an indoor pet ramp these stairs are affordable, have the best ratings, and an A from Fakespot.

Exfoliating body polish for baby smooth skin
While looking for a new scrub or body polish to feature (love scrubs) I remembered this body polish from Dove which I got at Target. You can get it on Amazon prime for a cheaper price of just $5.32, I’m pretty sure I paid over $7. This has a light scent to it and very fine granules so it leaves your skin so smooth. It has 4.5 stars, over 100 reviews and an A from Fakespot. Reviewers say it “smells and feels amazing” and that “ it does a good job exfoliating but yet its gentle enough to avoid irritation.”

A see-through dustpoof handbag hanger to organize your abandoned purses
My purses take up the entire upper shelf of a closet. With a handbag organizer I can stop feeling guilty about buying new ones. This handbag organizer has six pockets to fit your purses and comes in black and tan. It’s just $10 and has 4.6 stars, 113 reviews and a B from Fakespot. (Other products in this category have Ds and Fs.) Women say it fits bigger purses and that they recommend it because it “holds so many bags” and lets you see your collection, unlike other hanging purse storage.

A bedside shelf to keep your phone, glasses and drink at hand
I have a nightstand of course but I am always dropping my phone and glasses off of it because it’s not close enough. This bedside stand by BedShelfie comes in three different sizes and four different colors to help solve that problem. It would be a great gift for yourself or for a college student. It has 4.8 stars, over 900 reviews and an A from Fakespot. It screws on tightly without damaging your bed and can fit to almost any bed frame. People call it “awesome,” “simple” and “efficient” and say it attaches easily and is well made.

An ice roller to help with puffiness, migraines and hot flashes
I made the ooh face when I saw the rating for this under $12 ice roller, which has over 2,200 reviews, 4.7(!) stars and an A from Fakespot. This is said to help with facial puffiness, to help alleviate migraines, and to help ease the discomfort from hot flashes. You just keep it in the freezer and get it out when needed. Buyers say it’s great for reducing redness and swelling after facials and face treatments, with an aesthetician writing that her clients love it. Others write that it works well for migraines and sinus pain. One reviewer says it helps her makeup “look smoother and last longer.” It’s said to be quite cold, which can take some getting used to.

    You need a Roomba. It’s the best gift I’ve ever bought myself.

    • Celebitchy says:

      I have one! It still works but the brush stopped rotating.

      • Giddy says:

        One of the great things about Roomba is that they are easy to fix yourself. All the various parts are available on Amazon, including the brush. It unscrews easily and you can replace it. When the brush on mine quit rotating it turned out that a thread had wound around the base of the brush and it was easily removed. I’ll bet you can fix yours.

    • Who ARE These People? says:

      Do you think the prices will come down? I’m in Canada, and a Roomba through Costco is about $600. I just can’t see it.

      • Alice says:

        We bought a pet series one from Costco 6 years ago for $350. We replaced the battery a year ago and the brushes (inexpensive and easy to find on Amazon) and still running strong. Check during big sale times or when a newer model comes out and the current one goes on sale.

    • tealily says:

      I have one (another brand though), and it’s constantly getting stuck under furniture. It’s practically as much work as actually vacuuming and doesn’t do a great job!

  2. Call_me_al says:

    How do I make sure you get credit when I purchase something on here? Sometimes I put it on my wishlist for a while, so do I need to come back to the post when I purchase? I appreciate these posts!

  3. Agnes says:

    Thank you for the roller idea! I’m experiencing all three – facial puffiness from allergies, periomenopausal hotflashes, and migraines. Lol

    • Who ARE These People? says:

      I’ve been putting/rolling an ice mask (the type you can also heat) over my face/forehead for migraines, but a roller might be more effective. Good idea!

    • andromedadomeda says:

      Be careful with these! My aesthetician is horrified with these, as it’s never good to put ice directly on sensitive delicate skin, like that on your face.

      • Some chick says:

        For cooling off the core, you want to go for the neck. The circulation of the blood will carry the cool all over.

    • Sarah says:

      I have a metal version of this roller and just keep it in the fridge rather than the freezer and that really helps when I get migraines (they make me really temperature sensitive and I crave coolness) but recently mine started to squeak when you roll it! That does NOT help.

  4. Jessie says:

    I love The Ordinary. Literally the best anti-aging serums on the market, and so cheap compared to other brands. A little goes a long way and it has literally saved my skin!

  5. Lizzie says:

    so…this might be TMI but coconut oil is the best lube on earth.

    my OB/GYN told me to switch to it when i was still having painful sex seven months after childbirth. all i can say is…if you’re not using condoms (it is not safe for condoms b/c it is oil) …try it.

  6. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    I’m going to have to get that roller. Fo sho.

  7. MellyMel says:

    The Ordinary niacinamide serum is a holy grail product for sure. Been using it for two years now & don’t plan on stopping. So so good!

  8. Ms Lib says:

    I can’t believe you found three different products I can get for under $40!
    Thanks 😉

  9. jenner says:

    I like some of The Ordinary products, this one especially. They source their ingredients cheap though, so I don’t use their stuff all the time. And buy through their website, not through Amazon. Amazon is infamous for adulterated beauty products.

  10. Mandy says:

    Was this post put up just for me?! Thanks for the suggestions!!

  11. Kaye says:

    I could never have predicted that a combination gossip/shopping site would be my most-visited destination on the internet.

  12. sassafras says:

    I have a similar roller and I lurve it. Sometimes I prop it up on the back of my neck while lying in bed/ on the couch and it’s so good for stress/ sinus headaches or when you feel a little puffy in the morning (for me it’s due to allergies.)

  13. Catherine says:

    I live and die by the ice roller!!! My face breaks out in hives (lovely) when I’m under a lot of stress, and the ice roller brings it down. Fast. It’s great for fevers, swelling, etc.

  14. tealily says:

    I just ordered that vitamin C serum today! My previous bottle of another brand finally ran out. Can’t wait to try this!

  15. Ash says:

    There was a serum you recommended-Eva Naturals? It has Vitamin C, Retinol and Hylauronic acid. Just wanted to say it’s amazing as well! Can’t go wrong with all 3 of those ingredients! Thank you!

  16. H says:

    I’m trying the ice roller next payday. I got Eva Naturals Vitamin C serum from a rec here and love it!

  17. Alanna says:

    For those who don’t want to put ice directly on the skin, I have a jade roller (which I bought on Amazon) I keep in the freezer and get the same cooling benefits!
