    1. An exfoliating brush that will help prevent painful ingrown hairs.

    Promising review: "Really really impressed with this little brush. So good. I've tried everything in the past to help prevent ingrown hairs, making life a misery....😩 From body scrubs to tend skin. I use this on legs, under arms, bikini line towards end of my daily shower. & the results are really amazing, I can easily remove hair now no problem, unlike before using this, my legs ect felt sore & irritated & had to wait a bit longer for the hairs to break through the skin, & lots lay under my skin. Now I have much less issues with ingrown hairs & my skin feels way smoother too so pleased I gave this a go.. only wish I'd discovered this great product years ago.... can't recommend this enough. Looks long lasting & very good value for money. Also a natural solution , opposed to using harsh chemicals on my skin." – Teri M

    8. An all-natural bottle of Castor Oil that will help to regrow sparse brows and lashes.

    Promising review: "Bought this to try and regrow my thin & sparse 90s eyebrows and I have to say after just over a month of use (every other day) I have noticed a vast improvement, not only do I have to growth in the bald areas my actual brows are starting to thicken up. I don't think my eyebrows will fully regrow, far too much damage done by overplucking over the years but you never know. I will continue to use the oil and will probably buy more, think it will last a long time though." – Jen

    12. An adorable set of books for the littlest feminist in your life.

    Promising review: "My toddler is a big fan of the book "Feminist Baby" so I decided she needed this for her shelf as well. We have enjoyed reading these together, again and again. And she even has decorated Mrs. Clinton's page with some crayon embellishments. I think the choices of figures to include in the series were very good and represent a wide range of history and types of people. The illustrations are cute and the books are constructed very sturdily, which is important for the toddler set. A great addition to your library." – Zinnia

No more draughts and unlike the old stuffed sausage draught excluders, you don't have to keep moving it out of the way to open/close the door. Very pleased, I even bought a spare. It was also a lot cheaper here than elsewhere – bargain." – Kitty Kat

    14. A lovely Aloe Vera that means you can have a garden even if you don't have any outside space.


    Promising review: "I had purchased this plant pot over a year ago and couldn't decide what plant to get. In the end I settled for this Aloe Vera, and it was the perfect choice! It fit perfectly and arrived in wonderful condition, even though I was out for the initial delivery so I didn't get it for another week. If you're worried about it arriving intact and safe, it's well packaged and I had no problems at all. I don't drive so it saved a long trip to a garden centre." – Katie Prest
