A touchless dispenser for sanitizer or soap, exfoliating pads and an office sign

I found a great skincare article on Buzzfeed and wanted to feature so many products, but then I started running the ReviewMeta ratings and reading the reviews. These are some of the best products I found from those and I tried to avoid products people said are fake. I’ve also found a couple of other things I want to buy. I need help coming up with ideas so please let me know if you’d like me to find something specific or if you’ve bought something you love.

A gentle sulfate-free foaming face wash that removes makeup
I ordered this! I’m almost out of Simple foaming face wash and want to try a new foaming cleanser. I looked through so many products and reviews before finding this very affordable and well-reviewed cleanser. This Gentle Sulfate-Free Cleanser by Garnier SkinActive is under $10 for 13.5 ounces. It has almost 1,300 reviews and 4.5 stars on ReviewMeta with no reviews removed. Women say it’s a dupe for Philosophy’s more expensive Purity wash, that it doesn’t cause breakouts or tightness, that it is “very gentle on the face” and “works very good at removing oil and makeup.” Another reviewer calls it the “Best I’ve found in years of searching! Lathers decently and leaves no film; not at all drying but takes off every trace of makeup.”

Exfoliating pads that really work to smooth and clear your skin
These exfoliating K-beauty pads by Neogen Dermatology come in wine, lemon and green tea varieties. They have over 1,350 ratings and 4.5 stars with no stars removed on ReviewMeta. The pads have a rough side and a smooth side for exfoliating and applying product. Women rave about how well they work, calling them the “holy grail exfoliator” and saying that they really improved the texture and appearance of their skin. “After using this 2x a week for a month, the improvement is so significant that even my mother remarked on how much better my skin looks. The discolorations are fading, pores are more refined, and stubborn little bumps on the sides of my nose have disappeared.” Another writes “This is absolutely amazing. My skin looked pretty much how it did after I had a facial.”

An elegant adjustable men’s belt would make a great gift
I was looking through bestselling products on Amazon and found these belts by Lavemi, which have almost 13,000 reviews and 4.5 stars on ReviewMeta. They come in 43 different color and buckle options and in 2 sizes which are easily adjustable and can also be cut to fit. They come in a nice gift box. The belts are ratcheting, see the reviewer photos for more, meaning they can be precisely adjusted to fit. Men say the belts hold up well to wear, that they look great with casual and dressier looks, and that it’s their favorite belt. “This is by far the nicest belt I have ever purchased and price was a steal in my opinion.”

A $20 gathered t-shirt dress you can dress up or down
T-shirt dresses are awesome and this one has the advantage of being gathered so it looks a little dressier than other cuts. This t-shirt dress comes in 12 different colors and in sizes small to x-large. It has over 6,200 ratings, 4.3 stars and the same ReviewMeta rating. It has a built-in slip and women write that the “material is really thick and stretchy, it’s not see-through” that it’s comfortable and fits right. It is body-conscious though so you may want to order a size up for that reason. Women write “I got so many compliments from my friends when I wore this on a night out,” “Looks so cute with a pair of white sneakers but could also be dressed up.” It’s also said to be flattering and “fits perfectly! So comfortable but still looking fabulous.”

An office sign so you kids and spouse will respect your work time
This little stick-on office sign has color-coded messages to let people know when you’re approachable and when you need privacy. It rotates to say Please Knock, Do Not Disturb, In a Meeting or Out of Office. This has 164 ratings, 4.7 stars and the same score on ReviewMeta. People say that it’s easy to use, that their coworkers want them for their offices too and that it helps let people know when they’re approachable. “Everyone became more comfortable with getting in my office.” This is small so you’ll want to put it at eye level.

An automatic touchless alcohol and liquid soap dispenser
This automatic touchless hand sanitizer dispenser runs on batteries and can also be used to dispense alcohol or soap. I looked through so many of these before finding one I wanted! It’s under $27 and has 268 reviews, 4.2 stars and the same MetaReview score. People say that it works well, that it’s great for their office, and like that you can adjust the amount it dispenses with a little dial. “As a physician, I purchased one of these dispensers for my office waiting room patients to use. Being hands free, it is a great option for concerned patients. My staff liked it so much that I ordered 2 more for our back office area!”

A glass herb keeper that really keeps herbs fresh
I’ve been looking for a good fresh herb keeper and found this one from Honey-Can-Do. It’s glass and has a little water receptacle in the bottom. It has 227 ratings, 4.4 stars and the same Metareview rating. People say it really works to keep herbs fresh much longer. They write “This definitely extends the freshness of my herbs. Low maintenance, easy to use and effective.” “I filled it with a bunch of parsley, added a little water through the center tube and three weeks later they are still looking just as lush and crisp as the day I bought them!”

    Those Neogen pads are the TRUTH. I typically don’t like buying facial products from Amazon though, I got some counterfeit products a few years ago before Fakespot and all that.

    • Celebitchy says:

      I made sure to research these products and they do all seem legit. I want the Neogen pads now.

    • manda says:

      I use the wine ones and was coming to say the same thing! They work really well. My skin feels so soft afterwards. And also the wine one really smells like wine/grape juice!

      I have never had the counterfeit thing happen to me before, but I tend to not order most of my beauty stuff from amazon. Question–do you remember if it was sold by amazon or by another seller, or was it supposed to be sold by the company that made it? I’ve lulled myself into thinking that if I get it from amazon or from the brand (like here, neogen), then I’m safe but I guess that isn’t the case?

      • ethy says:

        Yes! I love the wine and lemon one, now I just gotta try the green tea.

        I do think it was a 3rd party seller – good point. I definitely think ordering it from Amazon or the company profile on Amazon is a lot safer.

      • Bubbled says:

        I like the wine ones best, just because of the scent (which is pretty strong, like grape bubble gum). For those who don’t like strong scents, the green tea ones are mildest.

    Does anyone have recs for a legit gentle exfoliating face wash? I like the exfoliating ones but none of them seem to be as gentle as they claim. My most recent one is bamboo and it feels like a herd of feral cats are scratching my face when I use it.

    I’ve been trying to figure out an over the counter brunette hair dye for my greys that won’t trash my hair with harsh chemicals. Salons are still pretty much unavailable where I am. I have fine hair that curls, so it’s easy to damage and then gets very frizzy. Does anyone know if something like Madison Reed is gentler than a Garnier or Revlon?

    • Lindy says:

      I have baby fine, curly hair that’s black. I’ve had a lot of luck using the Natural Instincts brand to cover the greys in my roots. Coverage is pretty good (I still have to cover new growth every 4-6 weeks, but use a powder root touch up in between if I’m being lazy).

      It’s been pretty gentle. Only use it on my roots though, and the rest of my hair is just my natural color (I dye my grey roots to match that). I’m not sure how it would do on the drier and curlier hair at the ends.

      • al13 says:

        Thank you! Just doing the roots is a great idea, maybe I’ll look for a root kit to help me just do my roots. My hair has color variation anyway, both naturally and from the sun, so it’s ok if it varies a bit down the length of it.

    • Celebitchy says:

      I use Clairol Nice ‘n Easy and I think it’s just as good as the salon but I am cheap.

      • al13 says:

        I knew you used an over the counter, but I assumed you have strongish hair since you can dye and use heat styling. But I will check that brand out too, and maybe try it with just roots like Lindy does! Thanks!

    I have the dress. It’s cute. I’m 5’2″ and it falls mid thigh so be aware. Definitely worth the price.
