Great for beginners and people looking for a quick and easy to introduce more green into their home! I've purchased several plants from them; all of them have arrived in perfect condition and been high quality. They also include little cards with helpful tips & tricks for taking care of your plant!
I loved my Allbirds when I first got them, but I've found that they unfortunately wear down fairly quickly and they're not as comfortable after the first couple days. These are also marketed as sock-optional shoes, but I don't think they're as breathable as advertised and I end up with sweaty feet after only ~a mile of walking. At the end of the day, I think I still prefer my normal sneakers. They're not as soft, but because there's more cushion support around the heel, they end up being more comfortable than my Allbirds.
Aurate New York
I loved the diamond pendant necklace I got from Aurate so much, I bought a second one for my mom! It's held up super well and still looks brand new, even after daily wear several months in. I spent a decent amount of time researching diamonds before finally buying and ended up choosing Aurate because they had the best $/carat value in the styles I was considering. I'm also super impressed by how transparent they are with all the diamond and gold specs online; most stores don't give you this information upfront. It really goes to show how Aurate stands behind their quality and prices! Packaging was sophisticated and unboxing was fun. I have nothing but positive things to say about this brand, and I'd wholeheatedly recommend if you're in the market for fine jewelry pieces!
Curology worked for me! I'm surprised by all the low ratings on here. I went through a period where I had stubborn acne on my forehead; almost all of it went away after ~1 month of using Curology daily. I've since stopped using Curology, but I'm super happy with my results. If I ever go through another period of bad breakouts, I'd consider restarting my subscription. I found their website easy to use and the process of getting a treatment prescribed really effortless. The subscription is a bit pricey, but they have a pretty generous trial and I'd recommend just ordering the treatment (without the cleanser/moisturizer) if you're looking to save some money. My only complaint was the smell of the cleanser and moisturizer. I'd recommend just using another gentle cleanser; I don't think the Curology ones are anything special!
I love OV's branding and their customer service is amazing, but I'm not a fan of their fabrics and fit. I've tried their TechSweat and textured compression leggings; even though both are marketed as outdoor fabrics that are good for high-intensity exercise, I've found that they don't hold up to hikes and runs. The fit is too stiff and after a while, they start feeling "sticky." I also own their merino thermal tights. These are comfortable and still haven't pilled after several years, but super thin and definitely don't stand up to cold weather.
Boxed Water is Better
I appreciate their commitment to reducing plastic usage, the design is lovely, and the box is very sturdy, but IMO they could go a much longer way in their sustainability efforts by creating some sort of reusable bottle for ordinary consumers and lowering markups for wholesale consumers. The water itself tastes the same as normal water, so I don't see this making much of a dent in the space until they're able to reduce prices.
AMAZING product that's definitely worth the $$$! You can even pay with your HSA/FSA card at checkout. The unseen sunscreen is my daily facial SPF. It has a primer-like consistency that doesn't leave your face feeling oily; I never worry about breakouts with this one. I've tried a couple other facial sunscreens from Sephora and K-Beauty brands, but Supergoop is my favorite by far. I also have the Play Everyday Lotion for outdoor days!
I own the women's pullover hoodie and modal jogger. The good: their MicroModal fabric is actually super soft! Just as advertised, I've never had issues with static and it's super breathable. Unfortunately, I don't think I'd reorder from them because of the design and fit. I appreciate their messaging about sizing inclusivity, but as a petite woman, their XS fit like an M on me. I also found the fabric to be too transparent for loungewear; I can see this being great material for undergarments, but you can see the inner pockets of the pants through the fabric if you're wearing the heather oat color.
I've tried a couple items from Italic. Overall, I think the products are missing some crucial design details that separates them from what you'd expect from true luxury brands. I'd only recommend shopping here if you want something nice and aren't too fussy about design/construction. Olivewood Salt & Pepper Mill Set: contrary to the overwhelmingly positive reviews on their website, these feel low quality and poorly designed to me. The wood itself is nice, but it's extremely difficult to fill up, makes squeaky noises, and produces uneven grinds. Women's Midweight Hoodie Sweatshirt: very comfortable, but didn't come preshrunk. Form the website description, I expected this to be "not too heavy, not too light," but this was way thicker than advertised. Scout Slim Bifold Wallet: my favorite of the three products I've tested! I don't think this truly compares to the leather quality you'd get at a luxury brand and there were some design details that were missing (e.g. doesn't close flat), but at $40, this is definitely a bang for your buck.
- Packaging could be better: items arrived in a standard brown box wrapped in a plastic bag. - Shipping alerts: got emails that my order had arrived when only some items in my order had been delivered. - Website stability: still some blatant functional bugs on the website. - Customer service was very helpful!
If you're reading this, you've hit gold! Superegg is definitely the real deal. The Gentle Elements Cleaner the best cream cleanser that I've tried--amazing consistency, surprisingly delicate, and smells incredible. I have fairly sensitive skin, but this has never irritated it and always leaves my face feeling soft, balanced, and fresh. Try this if you're looking for a gentle cleanser that won't leave your face feeling stripped!
