Dear Wendy readers are some of the most intelligent, stylish, super cool people around (it’s a proven fact), so when a commenter suggested I create a regular feature for them to recommend some of their favorite products, it was a no-brainer and Reader Recs was born. Today’s recommendations come from CSP (Caroline) who lives in suburban Philadelphia with her husband of 7 years. She’s an IT Recruiter who loves playing tennis, traveling near and far, and undertaking DIY home projects. Her favorite pastime is being a tourist in her own town. Keep reading for some of CSP’s favorite things.
As a home owner, I am always trying to find ways to spruce up my house on the cheap. This book has a bunch of project ideas to make your house a home. Everyone who looks at this book ends up buying it, and the hardcover is only $15. Having a book to look at makes the projects easier compared to following them on Pinterest.
I have facial hair — and not just upper lip and brows but also on the side of my face. I’d tried everything, and then I found this product, which is great. It cuts back the hair to make it thinner. There’s no stubble and it doesn’t hurt like waxing. It’s great if you need a quick touch-up before you run out. I hate when I am about to go to work and see stray hairs on my chin, but this takes care of that problem.
Do you hate carbs? I know I do. So I found this spiral slicer turns zucchini — and other produce — into long strands like spaghetti. You just spin the produce — it’s that easy and amazing. After I use it, I heat up the zucchini in a pan and then add Rao’s Arrabiata sauce and meatless meatballs. It is great and much lower in calories than pasta. Totally worth it, in my book.
I came across this mascara by accident. I walked into Sephora and a salesperson said everyone loved this, so I bought it. And it is amazing. It creates the longest-looking eyelashes ever. If you are looking for a subtle look, this is not for you. This is for making your eyelashes touch your eyebrows. It is cheapest on Amazon.
Another weird thing I need to admit: I get blackheads, and I am obsessed with getting rid of them. I saw this product on Dr. Oz and bought it. You can extract the blackhead without hurting the skin around the blackhead. It’s gross, but amazing.
