Some time ago, advicesisters.com started a “Weekly Obsessions” category. Then it became “My Gilded Life.” The products we posted just didn’t fit into specific stories. My plan now is that when I find some worthy items I really like, I’ll put them into a newest obsessions story. Do you like this idea? Your feedback is most welcome.
Simple Satch is One of My Newest Obsessions:
Sometimes I just need to take my self-care up a notch. Thankfully, Simple Satch offers a line of spa scrunchies, headbands, hair towels, and washcloths priced from $5 to $45. I love the So Fresh, So Clean Cleansing Kit (available in black, cream, muted blue, and shell). So Fresh So Clean is the bomb for travel, too!
My So Fresh So Clan editor’s sample was white, but the colors show up better in pink, blue or black. It includes a face towel, 1 spa headband, 2 towel scrunchies, and 8 cleansing puffs. When yoiuo need to clean them, just pop them into the included mesh wash bag. TIP: The zippered bag is also great for lingerie and other delicate items.
Why I’m Obsessed:
So Fresh So Clean gives you everything you need for home or travel in one set. Use the cleansing puffs to remove makeup and gunk from your face. The adjustable headband keeps your hair from getting wet or soap during cleaning and facials. The scrunchies are great for the pool or beach this summer. For now, use them to help reduce drying time when you wash your hair. MSRP $45 Available at SimpleSatch.com
BRBotanicals Gel Moisturizer:
I was born in Brooklyn New York and lived there most of my life. Whenever I see “Brooklyn” in a company name, I immediately get a soft spot for it. Therefore, one of my newest obsessions is BRBotanicals, That’s short for Brooklyn Rooftop Botanicals. In fact, it’s NYC’s first and only rooftop beauty farm. One of their new beauty products is a new Gel Moisturizer ($55/ 1.18 fl. oz.).
Why I’m Obsessed:
First of all, it’s unique. Founder Liana Blomquist created over 30 fragrance and skincare products for the likes of Elizabeth Arben and Revlon. BRBotanicals grows and processes over 50 beauty botanicals to create extracts and beauty products. The Gel moisturizer is made with Brooklyn rooftop-grown rose and chamomile extracts combined with Cosmos-compliant ingredient powerhouses. Who doesn’t love Hyaluronic Acid, Squalene, USDA organic Glycerin, and Vitamin E to soothe and smooth? Chamomile offers anti-allergy, soothing, and brightening benefits. Rose Petal extract is a powerful antioxidant.
The BRBotanicals Gel Moisturizer also has eco-friendly cardboard packaging. The bottle is aluminum, with a bamboo collar, and glass and plastic applicator top. Aside from the cool eco-friendly vibe the moisturizer feels nice. It also absorbs quickly. Send the bottle and droppers back at the address on the packaging. BRBotancials will sanitize and reuse in their shortened production process, or recycle with Terracycle. visit brooklynrooftopbotanicals.com.
BioTrue Treats Dry Irritated Eyes:
If you read advicesisters.com stories regularly, you’ve heard me talk about BioTrue Eye Drops by Bausch and Lomb, more than once. But I keep mentioning them because I have super-sensitive dry eyes. Normally I avoid eye drops because my eyes are sensitive and the drops sting. But the Ph balanced preservative-free Biotrue hydration drops didn’t bother me at all. My vision cleared immediately with no sting.
Why I’m Obsessed: Biotrue Hydration Boot Lubricant Eye Drops is the only product I’ve ever used that worked without irritating my eyes. I’m not the only one. My husband took my first editorial sample and I never saw it again. He loved them. But if you work at a computer all day, your eyes can get dry and blurry. BioTrue drops make your vision clear and comfortable in seconds. There is no “crying” so your makeup doesn’t run, either.
What’s In BioTrue Hydration Boost Eye Drops:
The Biotrue Hydration Boost Eye Drops are enhanced with HA (Hyaluronan) and an electrolyte plus antioxidant protection. The active is 5% glycerin. The product is also safe even for soft contact lens wearers. It is a tiny and affordable thing that works like a miracle. The 10ml multi-dose bottle is $12-$15. But the larger double pack is #29-$24 so you save. You’ll want one for your purse or pocket, and one for your desk.
You can also get cleansing wipes, which I love as well. Find them in the eye care aisle of your drugstore, or in many mass-market retailers. for more information visit www.Biotrue.com
