Moving from an Oral B toothbrush to Quip (I was sold on the design) was a disappointing experience. Quip just vibrates whereas an Oral B has a rotating head and provides a much better clean. I ended up using it for a week or so before re-investing in a new Oral B.
Loveee Jellycat's designs so much - they're cute, friendly, and super soft. A great range of characters to choose from.
I wish Jellycat used recycled materials
I've been using Thinx for five years, and generally love them. The sizing is small, I'm usually a size Small but am a Large in Thinx. There have been times where they haven't held up (especially post-partum), and are too expensive to keep buying new pairs (I have about 6 on rotation). Overall great for an alternative during your period.
Over time the underwear goes hard / stiff in the gusset area
I was gifted this when I was pregnant and was excited to try it, as I'm a gin drinker. Unfortunately I was disappointed. You need a lot of liquid to taste the flavour and feel like you're drinking something else. It's priced too high, for what it is.
Obsessed with these cakes! The Flourless Choc cake is my go-to and I always get comments on how tasty it is. Love them so much.
I wish there were more Gluten-free options!
Affordable skincare, but if you're after low-maintenance skincare I wouldn't recommend it. Unless you know what you're after it's overwhelming as there are too many products that do single things, rather than a combined one.
Youth to the People
Love the packaging and I'm still re-using the face mask jar today, I bought it over 5 years ago. Loved the product, but didn't buy again as it wasn't readily available in the Pacific.
I bought a S'well drink bottle in 2018 and it's still going strong five years later in 2023. I've dropped it down a mountain, taking it travelling around the world and use it daily. I love the brand and it's ethos. The quality of the bottles is fantastic.
I bought GC's very first pair of leggings when they first launched. I loved the idea of recycled fabric leggings, especially as I live in them as a mum. Over time they pilled and lost their shape a bit, so unfortunately I wouldn't buy again - although, I'm sure they've refined their fabric since first launching.
