I had to retire my old winter robe of 10+ years, and this was the best possible replacement!! It’s so cozy to lounge around in, and keeps you warm, but not too much that you’re sweating.

    Promising review: "Love love love this little set! I disliked the design of my old French press, which broke easily. Was happy to find this slightly larger one at the same price point! It’s big enough to make about 4 cups of coffee. The lid design works very well to keep any loose grinds from flowing into your cup. I like that the handle comes all the way to the top of the glass, unlike my old handle that only went up halfway and is what caused it to break. It’s easy to clean and a great value for the price. The little mugs are also very cute and sturdy, but I would pay the same for just the press, personally. 100% recommend!" –Target Reviewer

    Price: $24.99

    Promising review: "Obsessed with the Bliss line! I have dry and sensitive skin and have not been able to find a single drugstore product that works for me. I noticed a difference right away when I added the Vitamin C serum to my routine with my moisturizer. I’ve been using the serums for about 9 months now. These serums have spa-grade ingredients that are super good for anti-aging, which I feel is so rare for the great price!!" –Target Reviewer

    Promising review: "I will never use a different brand besides Olive & June! I got sick of paying so much to get shellac polish at salons that always ruin my nails. But this polish looks like gel and goes on so smooth. It took two coats but that’s a small price to pay for a good polish that looks salon quality!" –Target Reviewer

    Promising review: "Got this on Hyram’s recommendation and holy cow, I have NEVER been so impressed by a sunscreen. It is completely, completely undetectable. It is lightly tinted but in my opinion, doesn’t cover… just blends right in so easily and seamlessly. Not dewy or greasy-feeling or -looking, either. Leaves a natural finish that does indeed seem to blur pores a little." —wfw12

My skin is a lot more moisturized and it’s definitely lightened my dark spots. P.S. for all my sensitive skin folks: the smell I’m referring to is not a strong scent at all.
