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.
4. Benefit They’re Real Mascara
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.
