Positive review: “I used the foot and hand ones so far and I highly recommend!! My feet were the smoothest they’ve ever been, like I had just come out of the nail salon and they were soft for over a week and still aren’t too rough and I did them over 2 weeks ago! I will definitely purchase these again! Great value too”

I drink coffee every morning on my way to work, it keeps my coffee hot for a looooooong time! I timed it , I had my coffee in the cup with the lid on for roughly 2 hours – because I had to go to a meeting at work, when I came back to my coffee it was still hot!”

Rose Quartz Facial Roller
At least you won’t look like you didn’t sleep last night.
You can use this to help reduce inflammation and improve your skin tone. It also feels really nice on your skin.
Positive review: “I have been curious about these rollers for a while now. First off, it is soooo pretty!!! I waited until this morning to use it. My face seems so puffy in the morning times. The rose quartz was so cold and was so refreshing. I really love how there is a small ball at the other end for around my eyes. It could just be me but I see a difference! My skin looks brighter and maybe a little less puffy:)”
LED Flashlight Gloves
Gloves. And a flashlight. In the same product!
This one is marketed to dads who probably would love these for camping and anything outdoors. But moms, we see you too and if you’re outdoorsy or are just tired of trying to find toys hidden behind couches and in dark spaces, here ya go.
Positive review: “Initially, I didn’t think an item like this would be necessary around the house. After looking around and noticing the amount of areas I would need to get one of my kids to hold a flashlight for me, I decided to give this a shot. I’m gratified to say this was a good investment and a great invention as well. The lights in this product run via battery and shine very bright. I also like the fact the gloves don’t fully cover your hand as that allows for more coordination.”

Essential for planning out the family’s schedule.
Here’s what comes with this: Set of 3 Magnetic Calendars for Refrigerator: Monthly, Weekly Organizer & Daily Notepad. Wall & Fridge Family Calendar. 4 Fine Point Markers & Eraser Included.

So much better than digging through an app to get a picture of the tasks I need to accomplish. I can take a look every morning at what my monthly, weekly and daily tasks are and adjust on the fly.”

Brita Plastic Water Filter Bottle, 26 oz, Night Sky
Don’t forget to hydrate!
It’s hard to find a good water bottle and this one has more than 15K reviews and almost 5 stars.
Positive review: “I have been looking for a water bottle that would help me drink more water, reduce waste, save money (by not having to buy bottled water), and still be filtered. I had another Brita water bottle, but it was wider and more cumbersome to carry around. I saw this particular one on Instagram and decided to try it. I love it. The flip top is cool and keeps the straw from being exposed to germs. And it’s slender enough to fit in car cup holder and in backpacks, totes, bags, etc.”
