A waterproof sleeve for your vaccine card and aromatherapy tablets for the shower

From CB: I got the Wet and Forget Shower Cleaner and it really worked! While it did have a very faint smell, it didn’t bother me at all and I’m chemically sensitive. (I’m not as sensitive as I used to be, so I can’t speak for everyone.) It took about two overnight treatments to see the most difference, and it got the weird pink stain out from my shower tile. That was a great purchase. I also bought the three pack of sauces we featured, from Kevin’s Natural Foods. They were so good! I got the Thai Coconut, Lemon Basil and Tikka Masala pack. So far we’ve had the Thai and Basil varieties and they were super tasty. Those sauces would be great to keep on hand to make an easy dinner for company. Here are some more things Hecate and I are looking at.

Protective sleeves for vaccine cards so you’ll be able to add booster entries
From CB: I was thinking of laminating our vaccine cards but we’ll probably need booster shots. With these sleeves we can keep our cards safe while leaving room for more entries. If you have any badge sleeves for conferences or events just check to see if they’ll fit your vaccine card because I’ve heard those will fit too. These CDC vaccine card holders are waterproof and 4×3 inches. (My CDC vaccine card is 4×3.) You get 3 sleeves for $8, 5 for $9 or 10 for $11. These have 4.4 stars, 181 ratings and a B on Fakespot. Unlike other plastic vaccine sleeves, these are said to really fit the CDC cards. “My covid vaccine card fit perfectly in this card protector. Seems like good quality.” “These arrived today, and they are the perfect size for keeping our Covid vaccine records safe and clean. Better than having the card laminated, since I expect we may need to have booster shots.”

Menthol and eucalyptus aromatherapy tablets for an at-home spa experience
From CB: These menthol and eucalyptus aromatherapy shower tablets are on sale for $10 off, making them $15 for 6. They have over 2,100 ratings, 4.3 stars and a B on Fakespot. They come in a pretty box and would make a great gift, although I’d want to keep these for myself. They’re said to be great at cleaning sinuses. “I got these for allergy season. Just put one at your feet in the shower (not directly under the water, but just to the side) and enjoy the wonderful sinus clearing minty smell. they are soothing and helpful when you have a stuffy nose or even a sinus headache.” “I cannot say enough fantastic things about this product! I suffer from extremely bad allergies, allergic rhinitis, and daily sinus headaches. I am extremely happy to say they are absolute magic in your shower. For the first time in days my sinus headache is gone!”

A five piece mini mask kit to treat yourself and a friend
From CB: This set of 5 mini masks from Peter Thomas Roth is just $19. You get a purifying, detoxing, enzymatic, and lifting masks, all in little tubes you can bring with you. These have 4.6 stars, 138 ratings and a B on Fakespot. Women say these make a great gift and that they also make your skin feel soft and smooth. “Absolutely loved this purchase! Great value for money, loved the way they feel on skin and worked like a charm.” “All masks made my face super smooth, reduced pores, and were non-irritating to my skin. Favorites were the 24kt Gold and the Pumpkin.”

A leave-in styling cream that eliminates frizz and strengthens hair
From CB: I finally got a haircut after 9 months and now I want my processed hair to look healthier. Olaplex No. 6 Bond Smoother is a leave-in treatment that you apply before styling. It’s said to really work to get rid of frizz and make hair smoother and healthier. This has over 20,000 reviews and 4.4 stars on ReviewMeta. Women rave about how it transformed their damaged hair and say it’s worth the price. “I have a problem with flyaways and damage from dying my hair blonde. This product makes my hair look so healthy and it also seems to give it volume as well. Best styling product I have ever used.” “I’ve seen a huge improvement in my hair growing back and looking healthier each day.”

A cute skort for effortless summer style
From Hecate: I haven’t worn a skort since I was about 8, I think, but People featured something similar over the weekend and I thought it was really cute. I know most people wear these for golf or tennis. Since this one comes in so many cute prints and colors, I was thinking it might be a fun option to kick around town over the summer. This skort comes in sizes S – XXL, priced $15 – $25. Amazon says it runs true to size. I picked this one because of the number of options but also because it’s a little longer than these athletic skirts usually are. Over 2,200 reviews gave this 4.4 stars that ReviewMeta confirmed. A lot of the commenters said the fabric on the skirt and under shorts lays flat, making a nice line. One said it looked nice enough to wear to work, “This is so comfortable and smooth, and it’s nice enough to wear to work! The shorts part is the perfect length as well, very comfortable while sitting and they don’t ride up.” Another confirmed the shorts didn’t ride up, regardless of size. And bonus – pockets! “Sits lower on hips – not at natural waist – which I liked. It has shorts under it and they did NOT ride up, which I was shocked about. Pockets are great for your cell phone and chapstick.”

An essential oil blend to help you sleep
From Hecate: As most of you know, I have a tough time sleeping. I have a weighted blanket and a sound machine. I was using melatonin but it doesn’t keep me asleep. I saw this essential oil designed to help you fall and stay asleep. This mixture combines lavender, chamomile, sage and ylang ylang essential oils. It’s $10 for a one ounce bottle and most of the commenters talk about how unexpectedly large the bottle is for that price. It has close to 12,000 reviews with 4.5 stars according to ReviewMeta. This oil is sold for diffusers but can be used alone too. “I tried using this in 2 ways both in diffuser and place few drops in pillow. I find the aroma in pillow method lasts longer . I was able to sleep peacefully and this helps in breathing [if you have nasal congestion].” Many customers cautioned to use it sparingly as it is very potent. However, they also said it really works, even if you have sleep issues, “As a chronic insomniac I’m always looking for a natural ways to help me relax so I can sleep – the Dream blend does just that. Because of the blend of lavender, clary sage and ylang ylang this essential oil is potent.”

A durable six foot iPhone charger that you hopefully won’t lose
From Hecate: Chargers seem to disappear from my house. I don’t know how, especially in the last year since no one has gone anywhere. But I saw these and I really like that they have the reinforced plastic bend. I also like that they come two for $9. At that price I can afford to have them walk out the door. The six foot length seems to be the size I need the most so this is perfect. It’s a lightning charger and fits any of the devices that take a 5 charger. These have over 2,600 reviews, 4.2 stars and an A on Fakespot. They come in pink or grey. A couple customers had trouble with these in their car, so maybe just keep them in the house. But a lot of the reviews talked about how great the customer service was so if you have any trouble, call the company. Customers also liked the flexibility of the cords, “I bought this for my IPhone and it does charge my cell phone more quickly than the charger cord it came with. I love the length, now I can actually stand or sit and use my cell while it’s charging.” Another said it was more durable than expected, “So far so good. Both our toddler and our dog have tried to chew them and so far they haven’t done any real damage!”

    I just added the shower tabs and vaccine card protector to my cart. I just got in the exfoliating towels yesterday, which was featured last week, and will try one later this morning.

    • Big Little Sighs says:

      I ordered the exfoliating towels and I absolutely love them!

    • (The OG) Jan90067 says:

      Wish I would’ve known about these sleeves beginning of March, when we were first told to go get it laminated to keep the writing “safe” grrrrrr! Places were even offering to laminate them for free! Maybe a sharpie will work on the laminated card lol. Either that, or I’m sure they’ll be prepared to give out 2nd cards and we’ll just have to keep them together (in a sleeve now! Lol).

  2. Ellie says:

    Olaplex No. 6 is great. I used to use the shampoo and conditioner too but found that Prose is better since you can customize it for your hair. But my hair still benefits from having something after conditioner that’s not as heavy as a leave in conditioner. After using No. 6 for awhile, my hair also started drying faster. It’s expensive but one bottle lasts forever and seems to have improved my hair a lot.

  3. fifee says:

    I’ve started using Olaplex No. 0 alongside 3,4,5 & 6. I also use No.7 when I feel I need a wee bit more help with my ends. Its a great range and now that theyve added a No.8 I’ll probably get that too. Sometimes using all of the range can leave my thin hair a bit overloaded and instead use Briogeo Blossom & Bloom and Rosarco Milk Leave In Spray and its just as good at dealing with my frizz (I’d go as far to say I find it slightly better) and smoothing my hair.

    • abby says:

      I love the Olaplex line; it’s been a game-changer for me–the No 0 and 3 are really good at deep conditioning and do make my hair feel and look healthier. They are pricey tho, but I have thinner hair too and a little (especially the shampoo and conditioner) go a long way. I like the Rosarco leave-in too. I’ll have to take a look at the Briogeo B&B.

    • Big Little Sighs says:

      Is the Olaplex line good for Black hair?

      • TaraBest says:

        Hi Big Little Sighs, I can’t speak to how it works on Black hair, but I have curly hair and really love the No. 3. It’s pretty well loved in the curly hair community, so I would guess that it would work well for Black hair too. They do have trial sized kits so you can test out a few of the products for around $25/30 before investing in the bigger sizes. Hope this helps!

    • wildwaffles says:

      I use the 3 as a deep conditioner and love it. One tip my stylist mentioned was that she thinks it can make blondes a little brassy if you leave it in a long time so she recommends following with a purple shampoo.

  4. RN says:

    I made a copy of my vaccine card and laminated the copy. I keep that laminated copy in my wallet. I keep the original in a file at home. If/when I get a booster, I’ll bring the original card to my appointment, get the info recorded and then repeat the process.

    • Juju says:

      Yes, laminate a copy of the vaccine card but don’t laminate the original! The heat from the process can damage the writing and/or stickers. The vaccine cards holders are a great alternative.

    • ab says:

      this is a great idea!

    • TaraBest says:

      This is even better than carrying in a sleeve! I only got my 2nd dose last week so haven’t laminated yet, now I’m going to use your strategy of laminating the copy only. Thanks for sharing.

    Sleeves for the vaccine cards, you guys are champs!!!
    (and buying later)

  6. Cate says:

    Thanks for the post, I really enjoy these! I have quite a few items from them that make me happy.

  7. Kkat says:

    I got the vaccine sleeves for my family!

  8. Sealit says:

    Vaccine protectors, great idea. Just ordered mine. I really like the shower cleaner too. But I had to buy a refillable spray bottle. The pump broke on the second use. Guess I’m really passionate about cleaning my shower.

  9. bettyrose says:

    Just bought the waterproof vax card sleeves. Thanks for the tip, CB!

  10. Kim Monroe says:

    I just got my exfoliating towels and I’m really excited to try them! One thing I’ve been looking for are sweatbands to contain my fly-away hairs while I work out. I’ve never been successful at finding ones that don’t slip off.

  11. SpankyB says:

    Tried ordering the Wet & Forget cleaner and it won’t deliver to my address, home or office. Weird

    I did order the shower bombs, can’t wait to try them.

  12. Soupie says:

    I’ve used Olaplex Hair Perfector No. 3 (Repairing Treatment) in the past. I loved it. Excellent, rather expensive, but worth it. As abby said above, you only need a small amount, esp. if you have baby fine hair. I’m sure the Bond Smoother is excellent too.
