Gas-X is a life saver when it comes to having painful gas bubbles. I take Tums for quick acting and Gas-X for relief in the long term, as it is more helpful overall. I do not have to use it too often but it's always there when I need it and it is my go to for gas relief
Okay I suffer from *extremely* dry and cracked hands during the winter. I also frequently wash my hands due to my line of work and being an overly clean person. Because of how chapped and bleedy my hands get during the winter I cant use any lotions because they all contain alcohols and burn like heck and make my hands break out worse. The only thing I've ever been able to use to treat my hands successfully is Bag Balm. Ill use it to coat my hands at night and stick them in (clean) socks overnight! Next morning my hands are much softer and, depending on the severity of my chappedness, healed up!
I only use Tampax Pearl. The plastic applicator is far better than regular cardboard Tampax applicators! Also lites are essential for me as they are what I mainly use-- i'll use Tampax pearl regular for the heavier day or two in the middle of my period but for the most part I just use the lites. Also I prefer unscented (I dont like scented tampons...they smell gross and i just dont like the thought of putting that in my body).
I've had my Jansport backpack for 6 years now and it's still in great condition! It has plenty of pockets and holds everything I need- from my busy days where I need my laptop, big binder, a few textbooks, and lunch, to easy days when i just need a notebook and a folder. No its not fashionable (unless you get one with a print like the photo, mine is just black though), but a backpack doesnt really need to be fashionable. I prefer function and reliability when it comes to my backpack and thats why I use my Jansport backpack to this day :)
Great when you're craving a little something sweet (and a healthier grab than a candy bar or a cookie). I'll keep one in my backpack as a snack during class. Good ratio of granola/rice to chocolate stuff.
Just tried PB2 powdered peanut butter recently. What I like about it is that it has far less fat/sugar than regular peanut butter- and I typically get natural creamy jif. Its great for breakfast smoothies or just reconstituting for crackers or apples. Definitely will continue using this over buying regular peanut butter.
This is the only dry shampoo I will use. I cannot stand aerosol dry shampoos because they make my hair feel stiff since it's thin. No Drought doesn't make my hair feel gross when I use it. I find No Drought to be easy to apply, easy to blend in (my hair is dirty blonde, probly more difficult to blend if you have darker hair), and effective in soaking up excess oils.
Daddy-O is by far my favorite LUSH shampoo for 3 reasons 1) It smells SO good. I love the smell of violet. If you love violet this and LUSH's Tuca Tuca perfume (which they dont sell anymore I believe) are for you. 2) It does in fact help get rid of those brassy tones in blonde hair. Its lightened mine up a good bit. BUT be careful how long you leave it in. I read that it could stain hair and out of boredom (and a slight desire for purpley hair) I put it in my hair once while it was dry and left it there for a good 15 minutes before washing out and it gave my hair a nice light purpley hue. Dont worry it'll come out in a few washes. 3) It left my hair smelling good (I know I already said it smells good) and my hair was wonderfully soft. If a large bottle wasn't 30$ and I had disposable income still I'd buy it on the regular.
While I loved it these are a couple of things you may want to know: 1. It can stain your hair. 2. The consistency is on the runnier side. 3. Large bottle is 30$
Ok, LUSH has *so* many great options for face masks. If you can go into a store and get a fresh face mask, I'd highly recommend trying one at least once! If you don't live near a LUSH, then Mask of Magnaminty is another fantastic option as it can be ordered online, has a longer shelf life than the fresh masks, and doesnt require refrigeration (although you totally can refrigerate it and magnify that fresh deep clean feeling your face will get when you use it)! I'll use it once a week to deep clean my face. I buy the smaller pot, although it is more bang for your buck to buy the larger one, except I find that I often do not finish a small pot before the "use by" date (though I still finish it out). Another bonus about LUSH is if you clean and save up 5 black pots you can bring them in for a FREE fresh face mask!
Sargento is my "go-to" brand for cheese. Always great quality and they have so many options in type and thickness! Also the cheese sticks are fantastic for an on-the-go snack. I don't like having to prep a lot for packing lunches so these sargento cheese sticks are perfect (and keep me from going for less healthy options).
