This quarantine has been a hard time for so many, including me. I am the type of person that always tries to find the good in a situation. Even though the last few weeks and months have been so difficult for so many, it has provided a ton of down time to rest and tackle projects. We have organized and cleaned and done all sorts of house projects. Another thing that I’ve chosen to use this time for is to try some new products. I have five products that I tried for the first time during this quarantine – let me tell you all about them!
The first product would be Tinkle razors. Do y’all use these? Am I just super late to the game? I have watched a couple of bloggers that I follow use these and rave about them for years. I never really thought I needed them. I didn’t consider myself to have a peach fuzz problem. Then during quarantine when I didn’t wear any makeup for almost forty days straight….I was looking in my mirror. I did that weird thing where I moved my face at different angles and all of a sudden with the light and angle- I could see peach fuzz on my cheek. So I went to that bloggers page and read her post on these razors. She talked about how she used them once a week and they were fantastic for exfoliation purposes. Think about all the men who seem to age so gracefully…. they are shaving weekly… lots of exfoliation going on in that process. (JS) They are super cheap- like six on amazon for less than five bucks. I ordered some and tried it. The amount of dead skin cells that came off of my face 🤢 Seriously! I have found that using them once every two or three weeks is best for me. And just as a warning, right after you use them, your skin care routine is going to feel extra tingly!
The second product is wool balls. I have always been a stickler for tossing multiple dryer sheets in a load of laundry. The smell of my clothes is also very important to me. I grabbed these at Walmart. They work great with controlling the static. I put a drop of lavender essential oil on each one and toss them both in with a load of clothes. I apply a fresh drop of oil every few loads. I have been using these for a few weeks and have zero complaints. They were only a few dollars for the pair and they have already saved me so much money on dryer sheets!
The third product is L’Oréal Blow dry it quick dry primer spray. This product is meant to cut down on dry time and to also provide heat protection. Full disclosure, I recently got a haircut so my dry time was dramatically cut down anyway. However, it did seem faster when using this while offering heat protection. It also smells really nice!
The fourth product is hard as hoof nail cream. I noticed when the season started to change that my nails were splitting. I went to pinterest to find a remedy and came across this. The instructions say to apply three times a day or more. In the beginning of all this when we were still doing school work each day, I would just sit the tub next to me and apply it 4 to 5 times per day. I will say this, the health of my cuticles improved right away. My nails were so strong as well. When school finished and I was only putting it on in the morning and at night, it still helped but it wasn’t as drastic as before. I had also developed some dry skin on the top of my hand from all of the excessive hand washing. I rubbed this on it and it helped tremendously.
I saved the best for last!! Y’all! Here it is- my first Fab Fit Fun box and I’m totally hooked! I tried another “subscription” box about six months ago and was so disappointed. It was an immediate cancellation. I was willing to give this one a try because I had seen so many celebrities and influencers rave about them. They also seemed to have higher quality products. It almost seemed too good to be true! FFF allows you to choose some of your preferences. I was so excited for this- I was literally tracking my shipment! I paid $45 and received all of this!!
I looked up each product and it was a $324 Value!! I LOVE A GOOD DEAL! Plus I knew with a teenage daughter, no products would go to waste. If I wasn’t interested, then she would be!
I was most excited about the adorable Draper James bag (retailing at $75). I love Reese Witherspoon and was excited to own something from her line!
I also received a Michael Kors passport wallet ($78), a giving key necklace ($45), an ice roller, beach mist, brow pencil, beauty blender, and hand cream. If you have ever thought about this, I would say go for it!! They are seasonal, so it’s only four times per year. It is definitely something that I know I will look forward to in the future!!
What new products have you tried? Let me know so I can try them, too!!!
