A hair finishing wand, herbal heating patches for cramps and the best body wash

Amazon_ClearasilPatches1
Pimple patches that really work to zap blemishes
Everyone is talking about those ZitSticka things, I think because they’re ramping up advertising, but they’re so expensive! I’ve tried several brands of the more affordable overnight blemish covers and in my experience Clearasil works the fastest. It’s a little pricier than some other brands, but it’s way cheaper than ZitSticka. (This package works out to .46/patch for Clearasil. ZitSticka is 1.81 per patch!) The Clearasil patches blend in better than other brands and I sometimes wear them during the day too. I put a little benzoyl peroxide on the pimple, use one of these stickers, and the next day the pimple is so small I can easily cover it up with makeup.

A cleansing wash with prebiotics that naturally eliminates odor
Amazon_PrebioticIntimateWash
I have been looking for an intimate wash product and after trying this one I can highly recommend it! It’s PH balanced, all-natural, non-perfumey and gentle. This one was a bit more expensive than other brands, but when I read the reviews I was sold. It does work just like they say and I’m so pleased with this purchase. This has 4.6 stars, 39 ratings and an A from Fakespot. Some other intimate washes have lower scores on Fakespot and stories of allergic reactions. This one is full of reviews from women who say it helped stopped recurring UTIs. It’s said to work so well to restore balance on the entire body that you can reduce the amount of deodorant you use. Reviewers say that it lasts a long time, that it really helps eliminate odor and that they don’t want to go without it now.

Herbal heating patches for long-lasting menstrual cramp relief
Amazon_HeatingPatch
I found this product on a list of Lea Michelle’s top products on People. Unlike heating patches for sore muscles, these natural patches by Rea are specifically designed to deliver a less intense level of warmth throughout the day, right where you need it on your lower abdomen. Women call these “amazing,” say they “really work” to reduce cramps, and that they’ve bought them for friends who love them too. These have 4.2 stars, 178 ratings and a B from Fakespot. Plus they’re less than $6 for three.

65 colorful scrunchies so you’ll never be without one
Amazon_Scrunchie
I love scrunchies and use one almost every day. They’re gentle on your hair and are so cute. I don’t have enough to match all my workout outfits, but this could easily change with this incredible set of 65(!) scrunchies for just $6.49! I’ve paid that much for two scrunchies at Target. You get so many prints, colors and fabrics. People say these are great quality, that they’re pleased with all the options, and that it’s an excellent bargain. If velvet scrunchies are more your style, you can get a set of 60 velvet scrunchies in a pouch for under $6! The scrunchies shown above have 4.7 stars, almost 1,000 ratings and a C from Fakespot, making the adjusted rating quite good. These would make a great gift or you can buy them and give them away as add-on presents for friends.

A hair finishing wand for sleek ponytails without flyaways
Amazon_HairFinishingStick
I keep seeing convincing ads on Instagram for a similar product that smooths flyaways. This is a mascara-like wand that you use on your hair to smooth the loose baby hairs that make your style look crazy. It’s $13 for two tubes. Unlike similar products, this has an A from Fakespot, 4.6 stars and 340 ratings. Women say it works just as intended, that it’s better than hair spray, that a small amount goes a long way and that their hair stays put all day. They also like that it’s not strongly scented.

A device for your car to keep your phone and snacks from falling under the seat
Amazon_SeatGapFiller
My parents have these in their car and I can’t tell you how many times they’ve caught my phone, fries and more. The Drop Stop is a patented car seat gap filler made of flexible neoprene tubes that stick between the seat and arm rest. There are two, one for the driver and passenger seat. These have 4.7 stars, over 7,200 ratings and an A from Fakespot. They’re built to fit almost every make and model of car. Reviewers say they work great, that they’re easy to clean and that they make nice gifts too.

A leave-in conditioner that helps hair grow faster
Amazon_DetanglerandConditioner
This is the only leave-in conditioner/detangler I could find which had a decent fakespot rating that was affordable. When I checked it last night there were two left. It’s not in stock now but I’m ordering it anyway! You get over 8 ounces of product for under $6! This detangling spray by Marc Anthony hair care has 4.4 stars, 389 ratings and a B on Fakespot. Women say it makes their hair “silky soft,” that their hair has definitely grown faster since they started using it, and that they “can’t believe how good my hair looks, feels, and smells.”

    The hair wand is cool.

    I have a question though: does anyone know of a hair mascara for grey hair? I get some from time to time and have been plucking them out (I know I shouldn’t). I’m not grey enough to want to get a full color treatment, but is there a targeted dye option?

    • Celebitchy says:

      I have been using a root spray that I really like https://amzn.to/38K3bni

    • LadyMTL says:

      I haven’t tried the one that CB has posted, but L’Oréal makes a decent root touch up spray that you can get at the pharmacy. I’ve been using it off and on for a while now, and it does a good job at covering the grey or white hairs…the only downside is that it can leave residue. I use the darker color, and sometimes I’ll see it on my fingers if I scratch my head, yikes.

      Also, Bumble and Bumble have a crayon type of root cover-up that I like a lot, it’s small and super portable (it’s basically like a marker for your hair.) It’s a bit on the pricey side, though, so if you have a lot of grey or white I’d suggest something else.

      If there is a DM around you they have great root spray, very cheap

    Thank you so much for the probiotic wash recommendation! I never knew such a thing existed! I get recurrent bacterial infections and nothing seems to help long-term (not antibiotics, not oral probiotics). Fingers crossed this will work. 😊

  4. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Shame on you for the scrunchie deal! I have to have it.

  5. Faithmobile says:

    I started using my kid’s detangler(Honest Company) it smells delicious and is perfect for my fine wavy hair. Most products weigh my hair down which then erases my natural curls. If anyone as similar hair, I would love some more options.

    • tealily says:

      I’ve been using the Marc Anthony Strictly Curls spray and I really like it. It keeps things smooth, whether I air dry and let it do it’s wavy/curly thing or blow it straight. Very light, detangles, and adds shine!

    • Sophie says:

      I have a ton of fine wavy hair, and Olaplex styling cream No 6 has been the biggest game changer for me. It’s not cheap, but I’m still on my first bottle of it that I bought back in May. It makes my hair soft and eliminates my frizz, I’ve never had anything else work so well, and I feel like I have tried all the things.

  6. Melissa Manifesto says:

    Can someone please recommend beauty products for combo skin that looks dull? I tried Origin Retinol but it made my skin look horrible, I didn’t break out but it just didn’t work.

    Also hair products that help with breakage? Thank you!

    • tealily says:

      I’ve been using the serum from this post for just over a week now and I really like it so far! https://www.celebitchy.com/648399/a_cute_affordable_workout_tank_a_device_that_wakes_you_up_and_a_baby_bag_backpack/ Prior to that I had been using the Tree of Life serum, also posted here, which I had great results with, but my skin feels even smoother with this one and the dark circles under my eyes are less visible too.

      I also started using this Kevin Murphy Body Mass Plumping Treatment at the advice of my stylist (who has never recommended any other products to me) about a month and a half ago. https://www.amazon.com/Kevin-Murphy-Plumping-Treatment-Thinning/dp/B00IO7FJJS/ I’ve had some hair loss recently and I’m having a tough time getting the hair to grow back in around my bangs/temples area. I’m noticing that it actually is feeling stronger and I’m experiencing a lot less breakage over all. My stylist says that a couple of her clients swear by this line and she’s seen great results. It’s really making me want to try the rest of the line too. (Note: I purchased from the salon and cannot vouch for the Amazon version.)

      Double post

    • Normades says:

      I’d recommend a daily cream with Glycolic acid in it. It breaks off dead skin layers and encourages regeneration. I use Caudalie products (glycolic mask once a week and their vino perfect line).

      Retinol makes my skin dull and dry too. Products with AHAs like Glycolic acid are good for obtaining that KBeauty dewiness.

    Anyone know if the spot patches are medicated?

    Thanks for doing these! I bough the little razor protector from a couple of weeks ago it works great!
