Versed Skin

1. Versed Guards Up Daily Mineral Sunscreen Broad Spectrum Spf 35

2. Bomaker Wi-fi Portable Mini Projector

“I bought a projector for outdoor movies. It’s magical on a beautiful summer night,” says Avery R. To recreate that setup, we recommend this compact wireless model from Bomaker. It can connect to Wi-Fi and is ultra-portable, making it ideal for movie nights under the stars.

3. Natori Feathers Underwire Contour Bra

“I’ve been in the market for a new bra for a while now, and I always see PureWow editors writing about this one. I finally made the investment and can confirm this T-shirt bra is so comfy that I actually prefer it over my sports bra,” shares Jill C.


4. Colorwork Diy Paint By Numbers

“I got a paint by numbers, and I work on it a little bit every night after work,” says Simone V. We can see why; they’re so relaxing. In fact, Simone inspired this writer to get one and yes, I plan on hanging it over my desk as soon as it’s finished.

Bed Bath & Beyond

5. Vitamix E310 Explorian Blender

“I got this for margaritas!” exclaimed Liz W. Let it be known that while it does blend a killer ice-cold tequila drink, this professional grade blender can also be relied on for whipping up smoothies, salsas and ice cream.


6. Girlfriend Collective High Waist Bike Shorts

“These bike shorts are always selling out, and now I get why. They’re so comfortable and somehow manage to make a basic T-shirt look chic,” says Lily D. The soft compression material is made from recycled water bottles and the brand’s inclusive sizing goes up to a 3XL.

Violet Grey

7. Hanacure All-in-one Facial Starter Kit

“The beauty junkie in me couldn’t resist trying this kit for myself after hearing great things. And though I look insane when it’s on, the payoff of insanely smooth skin is worth it,” says Rachel P.


8. Planter’s Choice 9 Herb Window Garden

“In these times it’s been fun to grow plants and keep them alive (for once),” says Georgia C., referring to her new herb garden. This particular easy-to-use set features nine reusable pots, soil discs, packs of seeds for dill, basil, chives, thyme, parsley, oregano, cilantro, sage and mustard, as well as bamboo markers to label each one, aka all the makings for your dream green windowsill.

9. Best Choice Products Brazilian-style Hammock

“I got a hammock for my backyard so that I have a designated relaxation spot outside,” boasts Shira L. While she didn’t share the exact hammock she got, we’re guessing it’s something like this top-rated one, which can be secured between two trees or placed on a hammock stand.


10. Kitchenaid 5-qt. Artisan Mixer

“My best June purchase was definitely a KitchenAid mixer. My baking game is on point after three months in quarantine,” shares Becca K. If anyone else has spent hours whipping up treats in the kitchen, you owe it to yourself to finally invest in one of these bad boys.
