A versatile veggie spiralizer, a sonic facial brush & the bestselling anti-thinning shampoo


Jewelry Organizer Leave in growth conditioner

Last week I got the leave-in growth conditioner/detangler from Marc Anthony which was featured a couple of weeks ago. It was out of stock so I wasn’t able to get it sooner. It’s wonderful! It’s hydrating, my hair is soft and it does detangle really well while leaving it clean and residue free. I know I sound like a commercial but I really love it. It does have a scent to it, but I can be sensitive to perfume and it doesn’t bother me. If you prefer non-scented products you may want to consider that. I also got the hanging jewelry organizer for my new house. It works so well and really helped me to sort my earrings and necklaces before the move. I also like that you can see all your jewelry at once so you know what your options are, and it hardly takes up any space. Here are some new things I found which I want or think would be useful.

A telescoping light bulb changer for those hard-to-reach fixtures
The new place I moved has very high recessed lighting, some of which is burnt out. I got a huge ladder from Lowes but I’m scared to extend it that far. This is a telescoping light bulb changer with an 11 foot extension pole so you can change high light bulbs. It has 3.9 stars, 659 ratings and an A from Fakespot. It’s also more affordable than other light bulb changers. It comes with attachments for flood, standard and incandescent lights along with one for broken bulbs. Some reviewers love it and others say that you have to modify it a little to get it to work seamlessly. I have ordered one and will be sure to follow the directions and try it out on a lower light before I use it on the highest ones.

A way to keep water from leaking out of your shower onto the floor
This is a product I wish I knew existed years ago. It’s just a curved plastic piece which you attach to your shower curtain to keep the water from leaking. You get two of these splash guards by SlipX for $9. They have over 500 ratings, 4.2 stars and a B on Fakespot. People say they work well to keep water from leaking out of the side of the shower, that they’re easy to attach and that they even help keep shower curtains mildew free.

A heated sonic eye massager to reduce puffiness and dark circles
I saw another sonic eye massager recommended on 22Words, and it had an F on Fakespot. This one is much cheaper at $18 for the pink version. It has 242 ratings, 4.2 stars and a C on Fakespot, which is good for this category. All the other products I checked were much lower rated. People say this is soothing, that it’s very nice for applying eye cream and cream to the entire face, and that it does work to reduce puffiness around the eyes. I’m always looking for products for that! Also, old school Preparation H works on puffy eyes. I’ve been using that for decades.

A sonic facial brush dupe for less than $14!
Like the product above, I saw another product in this category featured on an Amazon list. That had an F on Fakespot but this one has 4.4 stars, over 230 ratings and a B on Fakespot. This is a little rechargeable silicone sonic face brush for a deeper clean. It’s only $14 while the brand name, Foreo, is $49. Reviewers say that it holds a charge for a while, that it makes their skin softer and clearer, and that it “works and looks exactly the same as a Foreo.” They also like that it’s waterproof and that you can use it in the shower.

An under $9 vegetable spiralizer makes it easier to eat healthy
I’ve been trying to eat more vegetables this year. I like roasting them but it’s a pain to cut everything. This is a $9 vegetable spiralizer that can make zucchini or squash pasta. It’s also a quick and easy way to cut carrots and cucumbers for salads. It has four different blades that you don’t have to switch out, it can also julienne and is dishwasher safe. People call it “healthy, fast and easy” and say “it has saved me a lot of money by not buying already cut veggies.” They also like how compact and portable it is. This has 4.3 stars, 286 ratings and a B on Fakespot.

An anti-thinning shampoo that people swear by
Pura D’or is among the bestselling beauty products on Amazon and is the number one bestseller in hair regrowth shampoo. It has over 13,000 ratings(!), 4.4 stars and a B on Fakespot. Women rave that it “halted the thinning process,” “saved me from going bald,” and “helps my hair feel thicker and fuller.”

An over-the-door rack for more storage space
I know about over-the-door hooks but it never occurred to me that you can have a bar over the door to hang clothing there. This is a closet valet that hangs over a door to give you more room for clothing anywhere you need. It has 701 ratings, 4.7 stars and a B on Fakespot. People call it “easy to assemble,” “strong,” “practical” and say it works great in the laundry room for hanging clothes to dry too. They also love how much stuff fits on it. It’s also said to work well for providing an area for guests to hang their clothes.

    Per CB: “As I’ve mentioned a few times, I just use Monistat chafing relief gel as primer. It’s got the exact same ingredients as more expensive primers. Also, you need to use primer under foundation! It makes your pores almost invisible.”

    I went to Ulta and had a heart attack when I saw the price increase or my usual Laura Mercer primer so I look CB’s advice and bought Monistat Chafing Relief Gel to use as a primer. It actual works better than the Laura Mercer primer. Thanks you CB!

      It doesn’t clog your pores either, right? I love that stuff. I was using that Hangover primer from TooFaced, the Ulta rep sold me on it, and the Monistat is better than that too.

    I highly recommend Pura D’Or. My stylist recommended it when my hair started thinning in my 40s. It’s made a noticeable difference. The thinning stopped, and I continue to see new growth.

    • tealily says:

      How long does the bottle last you? $30 is pretty steep for shampoo. :( Do you use it daily?

    • anneliser says:

      I tried it, and it just made my hair really dry. However, a bottle lasts a long time–you don’t need much of it, and it’s a big bottle. Very sincerely glad it works for some people!

    • What. . .now? says:

      I can attest that this product works! Finally, I can pipe in and say I’ve used something recommended!

      I get the shampoo AND conditioner. On Amazon I usually get both for around $40, and I’ve been using it since August, and does take me about two months-ish to go through the bottles–I wash my hair every day.

      Another thing that made a huge difference in my hair is to get a shower head with a filter so my water is not so hard. I have super hard water where I live and it was wrecking my hair — always so dry and brittle no matter what I did. With the water filter and the shampoo/conditioner my hair looks sooooo much better.

    My parents could really use the light bulb changer because they have such high ceilings with recessed lighting. I’m going to get this for them.

  4. Honeybeeblues says:

    I have the peeler, and from craving to first bite of some “zoodles,” about seven minutes. Love it!

    I can vouch for the over the door rack. I bought one to increase closet space after our move a while back. (Hooray for life changes, but BOO to smaller closets).
