Bestselling leggings, high waist workout shorts and hydrating face cream

I wanted to feature more fitness stuff and comfy clothes because I have gained weight and need to both rein it in and be more comfortable with myself. It’s a dichotomy I guess. I’m really liking those Avarelle blemish patches we featured last month. Unfortunately I’ve needed them, but they work. I also love the Maybelline BB Cream. It has great coverage plus sunscreen. Here are some more things I’m considering buying, plus a couple I already own.

Cute and comfortable leggings in so many prints and colors
These leggings are the number one bestseller on Amazon in women’s leggings! So many of my friends aren’t buying or wearing “hard pants” because our current pairs are getting tight. *raises hand* These leggings come in sizes small to 3x, most around $14, and there’s a pop-down box on the listing where you can chose from dozens of colors, styles and prints, including the cute celestial ones above. These have 4.4 stars, over 7,6000 ratings and an A on Fakespot. They also come in black, leopard print, a really pretty mauve color, forest teal, sky blue and so many more. Women call these “super stretchy & buttery soft,” say “they fit much better than I had hoped and they are remarkably soft too,” “almost like you’re wearing pajamas,” and that “the fabric feels almost like a very thin cashmere.” They also love that they have pockets and some reviewers bought them in several colors, saying they’re versatile enough to run errands in. “I feel confident wearing these with a t-shirt or tank top whilst going out and about and looking put together.”

Fabric resistance bands for strength training without weights
So many of the Youtube workout videos I see feature resistance bands, particularly these fabric bands, which seem to be longer lasting and more comfortable than the stretchy elastic kind. These are great for at-home resistance exercises for legs and glutes, and they can also be used for stretching and physical therapy-type exercises. I looked through so many listings before picking this set of bands by Bymore. They’re under $17 for three color-coded bands of different sizes for levels of resistance. These have over 121 ratings, 4.8 stars and a B on Fakespot, which is much better than other resistance band sets. Reviewers write “These things are durable and work great,” say that they “stay in place and are soft,” “feel good on bare skin” and don’t have an odor out of the box like other similar products.

High waist workout shorts with a control panel
I need more workout shorts and these high waist shorts from Ododos with tummy control and a phone pocket are a contender. These have over 6,800 ratings, 4.5 stars and a B on Fakespot. They’re said to be great for working out in and women rave about how comfortable they are. They’re said to “fit like a glove,” be “squat proof and run proof.” Women like that they don’t ride down when they’re exercising, writing “my undies aren’t showing through when I bend over and squat.”

An ultrasonic pest repeller that really works for mice and insects
I used to own a different brand ultrasonic repellant which didn’t seem to deter mice in my old drafty house. (Thank goodness I no longer live there.) This plug-in pest repeller by Neatmaster is said to really work. It has different settings for different levels of infestation. It has 4.3 stars, over 5,400 ratings and an A on Fakespot! One reviewer who writes that she lives in a tropical climate says “Ever since I got this ultrasonic pest repeller, I can say that amount of pest encounters I’ve had went down to almost nothing.” Another says “I placed it in the kitchen area where I used to have some ants and now they disappeared” and another writes “In the past week since we have used this, we have not found any mice excrement anywhere!” It’s supposed to work outside too, with a reviewer saying it solved her ant problem. “My son can now play outside on the patio without any [ant] bites.” It’s also said to not bother pets, depending on the setting. “We have 2 mini golden doodle puppies and it doesn’t bother them one bit.”

Deeply hydrating cream by Olay Regenerist
My mom bought me an Olay Regenerist gift set for my birthday and I love it. It’s so moisturizing and leaves my skin soft. This cream has 700 ratings, 4.4 stars and a B on Fakespot. Reviewers call it “the absolute best moisturizer ever,” say it makes your “face velvety soft” and absorbs well without being greasy or leaving it slick-feeling, and that it’s great as a night cream too. This is best suited for dry skin.

An all-weather waterproof notebook would make a great gift
These 3×5 all-weather notebooks by Rite in the Rain are under $4 for several colors, others cost more. They would make a thoughtful gift for an outdoorsy person and would also be useful in the car, camper or boat. These have 4.7 stars, over 2,7000 rating and a B on Fakespot. They come in several different colors including the gray one above, orange for high visibility and green. People say they’re truly waterproof, seem virtually indestructible and are still easy to write on. “I used these in the military for 6 years, and as an electrician for the last 8 years. They survived a deployment to Iraq, a few field exercises, and all the the other crap the military could offer.” They’re said to be incredibly durable compared to other notebooks too. One caveat is that they don’t work with gel pens.

Niacinamide can transform your skin
I’ve ordered the Cos de Baha niacinamide three times now, but they’re out of that brand on Amazon. I do think the niacinamide makes the most difference out of my serums. This niacinamide by trusted brand Tree of Life (I have their vitamin C serum) is just $12.95 for a full two ounces, making it more affordable than the brand I’ve been using. This has 957 ratings, 4.6 stars and a C on Fakespot, making the adjusted rating still quite good. Reviewers write “My skin has never looked this beautiful,” that “this product has made a noticeable difference” in sagging skin, and that “I can see a difference in the fine lines being less noticeable within a short amount of time.”

    I got the cat laser from last week, my cats LOVE it.

    • Celebitchy says:

      Oh I’m so glad! I’ll include your review in the post on Thursday. Did you get the one with two beams on it or a different model?

      • lucy2 says:

        Single beam. It runs for about 15 minutes, tires them out, and then I get some work done, LOL!

  2. Becks1 says:

    oh! work out leggings! I keep meaning to email you a few suggestions because I have some that I LOVE from Amazon:

    These are a nice high waist and around 30-40 dollars right now, you can find them on lightning deals sometimes though, the quality is really good, they feel more like Under Armour or Athleta. I paid around 12 dollars for them on a lightning deal but they are worth the higher price:

    And then I have these, which are a bit cheaper and I actually think the quality is better than the first pair:

    Both are a lot cheaper than Athleta or LuLu Lemon and I love both of them.

    I’m getting some of those leggings when I decide on the colours – so many to choose from! Love the notebook, too. Thanks for this post.

  4. SamC says:

    I may try the bands. Have several sets of the non fabric type, they are fine to use around the ankles but around the knees they always end up rolling and hurts more than the actual exercise.

    Last time we chatted about all these serums I forgot to mention that True Skin Tea Tree Clear Skin Serum you recently listed worked like a miracle on my teenage son’s very very bad cystic acne. (I wish I had taken before and after photos, it was almost like one of those freaky “look younger in seconds” infomercials.)
    I still can’t believe it, really, since I myself have searched acne cure aaaall my life. For me this serum worked well too, but it made me peel like tretinoin does. In about a week my son had normal skin (and didn’t peel). I’m ecstatic I found this, thanks!!!

    I bought the Fruit of the Loom cotton camisole bras from a few posts ago and really like them, but they’re all unavailable in my size now. I would love to find some more like that, because I’m tired of all these microfiber bras that cling too much.

    • Celebitchy says:

      I have those too I like how comfortable they are for just around the house! @Allergy that’s incredible that the serum worked for your son! I tried to ask my son if he wanted it using your recommendation and he said “no,” you know how they are.

    I have some of waterproof notebooks. I keep one in my car glove box just in case I have to give someone a note or exchange information, but it’s raining (which can be often here during the summer in FL).

  8. Call_Me_Al says:

    Got the vertical garden from a previous post. Very cute, sturdy, and easy to set up. I used it to hide some ugly fencing and put some herbs in it. Easy to water too.

  9. H says:

    I have like 8 pairs of leggings from Leggings Depot. They are awesome. Wash them inside out in cold water, hang them to dry and they will last FOREVER. Super comfortable. Now I’m going to see if they have any new colors.

    Once you get yoga pants with pockets, you can never go back

    I never thought I’d see Rite-in-Rain notebook on here! It’s in every archaeologist’s toolkit! You have to use pencils, not pens, but you’ll still be able to read your notes even after your sweaty dirty hands have touched them. You can get them with the spiral on the side or the top, plus they make graph paper as well.

    I just ordered those legging shorts (though I got the 8-inch version) because they look like great work out AND laze around the house wear. So on-trend for 2020, you know?
