Have you ever purchased something because it looked really great in an advertisement?
Thanks, Instagram fam.
While some purchases were a waste of money, some others were incredible. I'm here to talk about the incredible ones. Here are five products that I bought because I saw them on Instagram. I'm sharing them because I love them enough that I think you should buy them too. The holiday shopping season is upon us so you might even find a few gift ideas or stocking stuffers.
This $9 razor kit is only the best $9 I’ve spent all year. Your Billie Razor starter kit includes the handle (I have the DreamPop color), a magnetic holder, and two five blade razor cartridges. I shave every day thanks to my Italian genes and change my cartridge every 10 days or so. These blades are sharp and great for sensitive skin. My shave is super close and I rarely nick my skin. The magnetic holder is brilliant. I also use the shave cream which is a great value. It’s silky, smooth, and hydrating… plus a little bit goes a long way.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve used loofahs… you know, those plastic, mesh poufs. I was replacing them every few weeks since they quickly got gross – and I didn’t want to clean my body with a nasty loofah. Washcloths aren’t much better. I knew there had to a better alternative. Then, one day… Boie USA popped on my Instagram feed. This scrubber is made from a BPA-free antimicrobial material. While it’s exfoliating, I’ve also found it to be spray tan safe. I will still need to replace it about once every few months, but it’s worth it! I paid about $30 for a year’s supply of the body scrubber and added in the face scrubber too. These products are also made in the USA and 100% recyclable. My 22-year-old brother also has one and loves it. This is a great stocking stuffer for any guy or gal in your life. Snag this holiday deal for a skin care bundle with a body scrubber and face scrubber for only $14.
Speaking of clothing… have you ever been obsessed with a pair of comfy pants? Like, you want to wear them every day? That’s me with Lunya’s Siro Pocket Legging. I love lounge wear but realized that the cheaply made pajama pants were just that… cheap. They’d fall apart after a few washes. I decided to splurge on a pair of leggings from Lunya after reading reviews. After wearing them for just an hour, I decided they’re worth every penny. The Siro Legging has pockets and a wide wasteband. It’s also breathable and doesn’t have cross-seams. Make sure to read the size chart. I’m usually a small with most leggings, but I’m a medium with this brand. Lunya has hundreds of other products too for men and women on its website. Click here for $20 off your first order.
PS. If you need to buy a gift, check out the Washable Silk Sleep Mask. A luxury one-size-fits-all sleep mask always makes the perfect gift.
I also recently purchased the cooling and brightening eye balm. It's another great product! I use it on the weekends when I’m make-up free. It’s also great to apply throughout the day, over makeup, as an illuminating pick-me-up.
If you use Instagram, chances are you’ve probably noticed some of the products in this post pop up on your feed. It's honestly hard to click through without seeing dozens of advertisements. I can assure you that this list only includes items that really impressed me and that I will continue purchasing. Happy shopping!
