  • ”The smell is absolutely amazing and would love to wear it as a perfume. Smell lingers which I love!!”
  • “This soap is great! It is not harsh or drying. I love the scent! I also like the packaging. A little goes a long way. I describe the scent as a fresh clean girly scent”
  • “I love how it smells and I also like the fact that this doesn’t flare my eczema up like other hand soaps do. This size lasts for a while and I can keep refilling my soap dispenser about three or four more times.”

Collagen peptides are known for their benefits to our skin, hair, nails, joints, and bones. Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides powder in particular is sourced from grass-fed, pasture-raised bovine. Not only that, but it’s relatively tasteless, meaning it won’t be too overpowering of a flavor should you mix it with your favorite hot beverage.

  • “After using this product, I noticed my hair getting thicker and my skin getting clearer. I originally started to take this collagen for my skin and although it’s not perfect I have seen improvements since I started using this product.”
  • “I really like this powder. It’s easy to use in so many different things. I use it primarily to make sure I get enough protein every day, but I love the benefits of the collagen and the fact that it’s not packed with sugar..”
  • “Great product, mixes well with hot drinks. Noticed positive results in my hair, nails, and skin. I see reviews about the can being half empty but most fail to realize after distribution the powder does settle. All and all good value for the quality.”

  • “So far these little might patch pimple stickers seen to be working good for my teenager. They’re ultra-thin stickers with a translucent matte finish that keeps your pimple under wraps day or night and blend onto your skin to where they don’t stand out. My teen has used 3 already on pimples and they do pull the gunk out. He’s so impressed with these that he went to Target to buy a larger pack. I received this as a gift to review for my honest opinion.”
  • “There has been this deep pimple on my nose for about a week now. I tried one of these patches last night. I woke up this morning to take it off, and it really brought out the pimple and popped right away!”
  • “This product is amazing, seriously my favorite hero product. These pimple patches are like no other, they stick on very well compared to other patches. They are a great size as well not too big not too small. These absorb the gunk in your pimple and really clear and flatten it out. They are also really clear and not noticeable as well when you wear them, love these!”

4. Dog Water Bottle

  • “I’ve tried products like this in the past and they’ve only worked moderately well. I cannot believe how many bugs this one has caught! We had a few flies I wanted to take care of but this thing has caught so many gnats that I didn’t know we had, it’s unreal. Will definitely be buying more refills.”
  • “This was a game changer. I saw a bunch of reviews saying it didn’t do anything… but there was a coupon and I was so frustrated with my fruit fly issue. Check out these results pictures, this is what it caught in 24 hours! I’m pleased and am not seeing any fruit flies around!”
