I love the smell of the original Hempz lotion (kind of banana mixed with flowers) and it is indispensable during the winter, when it's drier inside and I need moisturizer so often.

    The trigger point foot roller

    Promising review: "In the past, I had the crippling pain of planters fasciitis (and a heel spur) for about a year! Recently, it has tried to rear its ugly head. Past treatment included rolling my foot on a tennis ball to break up scar tissue, but the ball would slip out, not giving my feet enough therapy time. When I saw this in the Target app, I knew I had to have it. It does not disappoint. It doesn’t slip (I personally use it in an area of my home with carpet, standing with one hand on the wall leaning over it while really pressing and rolling my foot along the ridges). I love that it goes deeper than the tennis ball and my other foot therapy balls because of the bumps and ridges. Perfect and highly recommend. After use my feet feel alleviated and very happy." —CityGirl024

    Price: $26.99

I leave it in anywhere from five to 30 minutes, but it detangles even after just five minutes. I have many textures and porosity in my hair. This product works for all of it!" —Noshoesrequired

    Price: $13.99
