Bek O’ Connell

I have thick, naturally curly hair and love this stuff. But my colleague (pictured) has fine hair and also loves this product! Check out her full Elizavecca CER100 Collagen Coating Hair Protein Treatment review.

Promising review: “This stuff is incredible. Used it in the shower because I’m lazy and didn’t even bother with towel drying. Just rang out water after shampooing and left on for about 10 minutes. I always blow-dry my hair because I have mixed textures and blow-drying provides me with uniformity, so I went about my business as usual. The result: hair that is soft AF and hella bouncy (I regularly have a lot of a volume though, so I don’t know if I can attribute volume to this product). Overall, I’m super satisfied and this is totally a new staple in my routine. Getting one for mom too.” —Mgapany

Get it from Amazon for $7.50.

A Revlon blow-dryer and volumizer brush to help giving yourself a blowout become something that’s possible as a mere human, minus the salon appointment or extra arm. You aunt is already asking for the link.

amazon.com

Promising review: “Drying hair shouldn’t be a commitment. It really shouldn’t take 30+ minutes and require a third arm or double joints. Especially for us with thick long hair. I cant tell you how many times I get frustrated that I can’t accomplish that salon-quality blowout no matter how much effort or time I put into it. I buy the fancy products, the fancy tools, and nothing. Bleh. Until now. I mean C’MON. Why wasn’t this made 10 years ago!!!! I would have saved so much time and looked AMAZING. You could spend $20 or $400 on a blowdryer and will not beat this. But really… $45 is nothing compared to this time I have saved doing my hair. The only thing that upsets me is that it wasn’t made earlier so that I didn’t waste money on other styling tools. As soon as I was done doing my hair I texted my mom and bought her one because let’s be real, when we find a lifesaving product like this we have a moral obligation to tell all our girlfriends so they don’t waste anymore time trying to just dry our *effing* hair.” —Timothy G.

I sit at a computer for work most of the day and this is the first cushion that did not go flat on me, did not slip all around and did not heat up to 1000 degrees after a full day of use.

So I have my one and she has three, one for the car, her chair in the living room, and one for her computer chair.

Promising review: “I have five indoor cats who spend most of their days napping on my bed or my daughter’s bed. The accumulation of cat fur is ridiculous. I had been using the sticky tape rollers to remove the fur but they didn’t do a very thorough job and I had to constantly pull off layers of tape to do my entire queen bed. It was practical or effective. Machine washing a queen sized quilt as often as it needed it wasn’t very practical either. I followed the instructions for the Chom Chom (quick, short strokes, back and forth) and going over my own bed entirely filled up the chamber with fur. I did my daughter’s bedspread, a couple of cat mats, a chair and a section of curtain that accumulates fur. I must have emptied that chamber five times and I only spent a few minutes de-furring. This product does exactly what it says it does and I just bought one for my mom. Just buy it. You won’t regret it.” —Amazon Customer

Promising review: “Where has this hair tool been all my life?!?! Amazing! I was interested in buying the hair scalp massager to help remove dry shampoo buildup when I shampoo, but did not think it would work that well because I have thick hair. I was pleasantly surprised that it was able to get my shampoo to suds like never before. I really feel like my scalp is very clean now! Also, the massage nubs felt nice on my scalp. My hair is highlighted, thick, and wavy. I think this hair tool would help people with arthritis wash their hair while keeping the hand in a more natural position. I am planning to buy one for my mom, too, as she has desensitized fingertips from medication.” —Favorite Girl

Promising review: “This is the best ball for your foot! I tore a muscle in my calf and have had foot and leg pain. This helped me so much just rolling under my foot prior to bed. I bought one for my mom and it has improved her foot and toe pain. It’s excellent!” —dstar

And a pair of compression sleeves for your feet you can don underneath your socks. Folks with plantar fasciitis, heel pain, flat feet, and other painful issues swear by them. Time to make those old dogs feel like puppies again.

Promising review: “I don’t have plantar fascitis, but I do have occasional foot pain. Sometimes it’s so bad I can barely walk. I never know when it’s going to hit, as it seems quite random. So I bought a pair of these SB SOX compression foot sleeves. My feet are thanking me! They feel so good, so comfortable! I’ve worn this pair for two days now, with regular socks over them. I hate to put them in the laundry, because that means I will be without them for a whole day. My only regret is that I only bought one pair, but I intend to fix that tonight!

Update: since my last review, I bought two more pairs, since one is never gonna be enough. I bought one of my pairs to my mom, who is 95 and in assisted living, and has a lot of mobility issues. I put them on her feet and, lo and behold, she LOVES them! So last night I ordered three more pairs for the both of us!” —KatPiper

Promising review: “I absolutely love them so far. I bought them to anchor my iPhone charger cable and keep it from slipping behind the nightstand. They do just what I was hoping they would do. I am glad I bought two packs so I can give one to my mom for Christmas. I have a feeling I’m going to need to buy another one soon for my husband when he sees how great they are!” —Jennifer Lorenzo

And a screen cleaner that’ll help make sure that you can see each other’s faces clearly during all those digital chats. Is that a fingerprint or did you just smudge something on your face?

Promising review: “I’ve used Lysol wipes, and all of the other various ‘tricks’ for cleaning my phone/tablet for years and honestly this works so much better! The cleansing solution works like a charm and the cloth portion is really easy to remove and wash! Yeah it might seem silly, but it’s helped me easily manage what was previously a constant annoyance. My mom also likes that it cleans her makeup off of her phone screen since she can’t seem to stop pressing it fully up against her face when she answers calls… TLDR: I really like it, and my mom does too!” —A.

A super effective makeup brush shampoo because you’re pretty sure Mom’s blush brush is from when you were in preschool. Nope, don’t divert the attention. YOU need to wash your makeup brushes too.
