We’re happy to introduce our brand-new monthly series: Skimm Faves. You may be a bit familiar. Last month, we rounded up your absolute favorite things of 2021 (so far), including the most popular kitchen gadgets, self-care products, problem-solving items, and more.
Now we’re busting out the magnifying glass and taking a look at the top products you've been adding to cart over the past month. Consider this series your guide to what’s trending among Skimm’rs — and the top sellers you won’t want to miss out on. Time to shop smarter.
Once things get steamy, the scent of eucalyptus will fill the bathroom. The bundle comes with a stainless steel shower hook and is available in three sizes. Daily hygiene, but make it luxurious. ($12.51+, Greenery Backdrop on Etsy)
Bug bites be gone. This genius gadget works to remove the irritant left underneath your skin that causes itchiness and redness. You’ll be able to stop a reaction in its tracks, leaving the bite visibly smaller. You can even try it on bee and wasp stings. The true MVP of the summer. ($9.95, Amazon)
The stuff of magic. It’ll work on carpet, tile, and wood floors. And doesn’t call for any water or sprays. It’ll attract hair like a magnet. The handle is expandable, too. Just in case you need to reach under couches or beds. When you’re done, place the broom under running water to wash. It’s that easy. ($12.44, Amazon)
Yep, even your dishwasher needs cleaning. Oh, the irony. Once you start seeing those streaks on your glassware…you know it’s time. Drop in a tablet to power away leftover detergent and mineral buildup. And it'll get rid of some weird odors. You can add a tablet to a full load or run it solo (sans dishes). ($5.99/6 pack, Amazon)
Maybe you wanna stop using your phone after 8 pm. Or drink less caffeine. Whatever your goal is, this calendar will help you stay aware of your daily, weekly, and monthly habits. It’s broken down into different categories like sleep, movement, finances, and organization. So you can stay on top of things and set yourself up for success. ($18, Free Period Press)
Whiteheads, we’re looking at you. These hydrocolloid patches cover breakouts and reduce inflammation. They work to extract pus, healing the skin along the way. You can apply one before heading to bed and then remove it in the morning. We’re talking minimal effort. ($12.50/36 pack, Amazon)
Vaccine cards = summer’s hottest accessory. We all know how easy it is to lose a piece of paper. Or rip it. Especially since many of the cards are slightly too big to fit in your standard wallet. This clear plastic holder comes in a 5-pack, so you can keep the whole family’s records protected. ($6.99/5 pack, Amazon)
Fill up your bottle and drop one in. Then watch it fizz. It’s made of a mix of ingredients (like baking soda and citric acid) to get rid of germs and odors. You can leave the tablet in for 15–30 minutes before rinsing out. Your bottle will sparkle and each sip will taste fresh. Hydration station. ($8/12 pack, Amazon)
Sun Bum 100% Mineral Facial Stick SPF 50 is easy to carry around and shouldn’t explode in a bag like some tubes of lotion. The American Academy of Dermatology specifically suggests using sticks for around the eyes. Plus it’s fragrance-free, fast-absorbing, and quick to roll on. So your kids can easily master the reapplication game. ($9.99, Amazon)
An easy way to up your style game? Say hello to ear cuffs. They can slip on and off, so you don’t have to commit to any permanent piercings (aka no needles). You can tighten them by squeezing, which will keep ‘em snug as you go about your day. They’re also a great accessory to flaunt on Zoom if you’re still working from home. ($12.99/10 pack, Amazon)
No more money spent on products every time your period rolls around. This pair of underwear is absorbent and can hold up to eight tampons’ worth of liquid. Once you’ve worn them, just toss them in the washing machine. If you’re a bit skeptical, fear not. The material is made from triple-layer technology. The first layer blocks odors and keeps you dry, the second layer traps the liquid, and the third layer covers you from any leaks. Phew. ($30, Knix)
Now you can enjoy a boat day without having to worry about a pup falling overboard. This jacket will keep’ em afloat. The top has grab handles just in case you need to swoop them up quickly. Psst...everything is adjustable (thanks to the buckles), so you can get a snug fit. Time to take a dip. ($17.99+, Chewy)
This hand embroidery kit is perfect for when you want to put your phone down and let your mind escape. It has all the essentials (and step-by-step instructions and stitch guide) you’ll need to complete the hoop art. All you need now is some background tunes and the vibe is set. ($17.99, Chloe Arts Crafts on Etsy)
This one from Girlfriend Collective has a minimal-strap design that we’re digging this summer. It’s ultra supportive thanks to its compression fabric and double lining. Plus it has removable cups and four-way stretch, and is made from stuff we love, like recycled plastic bottles. Keeping your babes supported while you look out for the environment? Yes, please. ($48, Girlfriend Collective)
