    1. Fizzy aromatherapy bath bombs because you can treat yourself to DIY spa time and get moisturized skin. These relaxing treats contain essential oils, like lavender, orange, and peppermint, and smell so good when dropped in a tub.,

    Promising review: "I have been using bath bombs for years. I've used cheap brands, drugstore brands, luxury brands (Lush, YL) and more. This box gives all bath bombs I've tried a run for the money! The packaging was super cute and totally giftable. I was really impressed at the quality of the bath bomb itself too (I used Heal tonight) and I love that this uses natural essential oils. During this COVID-19 outbreak, I have had a lot of stress and anxiety and have enjoyed a bath nearly every night for the past week. This bomb gave me the most serene experience and they are HUGE! At least double the size of ones I've used before. Comparable to the size of Lush bombs. I will definitely purchase this box again when I run out and honestly it's a great price at a little more than $2 apiece. You really can't beat it!" —Heather H

    Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "I've tried several different tea infusers from Amazon trying to find one fine enough that very small loose teas don't leak out. Finally, the search has ended. This is the one. This infuser is not a mesh screen, but a small canister. It holds a good amount of tea, stays together, and is very easy to clean. Best of all, no matter which tea I use, there are absolutely *no bits* escaping out into my tea. They're a little larger than they look, which is actually a good thing." —Amazon Customer

I had my dad, who built houses for a living, install it for me to make sure it was secure but I think as long as you use a stud finder and have a good screw driver, anyone can do this." —KrisSquared

    My colleague Samantha Tomaszewski loves this puzzle and said "I ordered my pandemic puzzles from Seltzer Goods, a woman-led company based in Asheville, North Carolina.

    Promising review: "I love this oil diffuser. It is really easy to set up, and all of the oils that come with it have great scent. Some are relaxing, some are uplifting, it’s a nice variety. The colored lights are neat and the mist timer is handy, especially if you want to set it to sleep to because it will shut off after one, three or six hours. It’s pretty quiet but sometimes sounds like light running water. I enjoy this sound because it’s relaxing to me, but just a heads up if you like silence." —Amazon Customer

    Bek O'Connell / BuzzFeed

    My colleague Bek O'Connell swears by these tiny patches and said "No matter how much sleep I get, it seems like I can never get rid of the puffy, purple circles under my eyes. I've tried creams, gels, even putting cold spoons under my eyes. I almost gave up hope until I found these jelly-like eye patches. These shimmery commas do serious work. They're made with snail extract, which is known to help with blemishes and hyperpigmentation, so yes! It helps with those dark circles." Read more of her Gold & Snail Hydrogel Eye Patches review.
