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 LBH–or “lets_be_honest” if you’re being formal, who has already shared some of her favorites with us and now has more because girlfriend loves to shop. LBH is from NY and lives with her partner and daughter. Her hobbies include mimosas, naps, HGTV, and spreadsheets. Keep reading to see what cool stuff shopaholic LBH recommends.
Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration
I got this in my Birchbox and it’s my new favorite hand cream. I’ve tried a million, ranging in different prices, and this is the best yet.
DCL AHA Revitalizing Cleanser
I’ve had cystic acne for years now and, so far, this is the only thing that’s helped that doesn’t include getting shots in my face. It doesn’t make you feel clean, which is kind of gross, but it really works.
GapFit GDance Pants
I have 4 of these now all in the same color. Way better than Lulu! Don’t listen to Iwanna!
Issey Miyake L’eau D’Issey perfume
I’ve been wearing this for over 15 years. Nice smell, not too girly or strong. If you like floral, try Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb. Its pricey, but smells amazing in the summer.
Vince Camuto Ellens
If any of you remember seeing my shoe closet picture, you’ll know I have tried plenty of flats. These are the best. I’d recommend the black ones and a patent pair.
If you have some products you’d like to recommend to the DW audience, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with links to five recommendations. (Write “reader recs” in the subject line please). Your recommendations can be from any store or website, but they need to be accessible online — and I would love it if at least two items could be found on Amazon where I am an affiliate. If your list is a good fit for the site, I’ll ask you to write a brief description of each item/ explain what you love so much about it.
