Welcome to the next edition of The Friday 5! You’re in for a treat with five new favorites. You can watch the video episode below.
The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution
This product is super affordable as far as skincare goes. It’s only $8! I think I’ve talked about it before, but I had to mention it again. It’s a 10-minute exfoliating peeling solution – the kind that feels like you’re ripping your face off (in the best way possible). I first heard about it on Big Brother, and after doing some intense Google searching, I found it and have been been obsessed ever since. This is my third bottle. It’s great for hyperpigmentation (I apply it on my melasma) and acne scars. I use this about 2-3x per week.
If you’ve ever looked at the ingredients in microwave popcorn, they typically aren’t so great. We love this brand as the ingredients are great and they use non-GMO corn. Conventional corn is also a top place to find mold (which I’m trying to detox from already). It’s a little hard to find this brand, so we just order online. The cheddar flavor is delicious – Quinn can gobble up an entire bag himself! It’s great to have on hand for a fun family move night treat.
I am certain I’ve shared about this vegetable chopper more than once before, but it’s definitely worth another shoutout. Once you have this in your life, you will thank me every day. I personally use it almost every day as it makes meal prep a breeze. I can chop up a whole bag of potatoes in minutes – highly recommend! Be cautious: the blades are extremely sharp, so this kitchen gadget is not kid-friendly.
I got these 1822 Skinny Jeans in one of my recent Stitch Fix orders, and I love them! They’re very affordable; you can get them from Nordstrom, too, if you want to order them individually. They’re stretchy, but not so stretchy that you get a saggy butt. They fit very well, and I know I’ll be wearing them all Spring and Summer.
5. Coffee Sweatshirt
As you know, I love coffee. My friend over at @igotaguysshirts offered to make me this cute sweatshirt. I bought another one of my new favorite sweatshirts from Amazon and then he did the screen printing. Cute, right? Best part: I’m giving one away! Simply comment on this post and make sure to follow @igotaguysshirts. I’ll pick a winner on Monday.
