“This electric shaker bottle has made my post-workout routine so much more enjoyable this summer. The piece that turns the motor screws on the bottom of the shaker with ease, and the actual motor itself is strong enough to dissolve those annoying globs of protein within seconds. I also can’t forget to mention how wonderfully simple it is to clean the bottle after each use.”

I bought this viral waterproof spin scrubber on a whim during Prime Day and it has become a game changer in how I clean my shower and bathroom floor. The end of the scrubber can turn to a 45-degree angle for better positioning; plus, you can extend the staff outward so you don’t have to bend over while scrubbing. You also get four interchangeable head scrubbers.”

“When my Series 5 fell off my bathroom counter and the screen broke, my heart went with it. Thankfully I scored the 2nd Gen SE during Presidents’ Day deals (though it’s still Apple’s most affordable watch option) and it’s been such an upgrade. The 44mm screen size is just right, it tracks all my summer workouts and I’ve worn it enough to have an embarrassing Apple Watch tan.”

“I recently tested Brooks running shoes for the first time (the Glycerin 20, to be exact). The brand talks a lot about its ‘Guide Rails’ technology, which is essentially extra padding on the inside and outside edge of the heel designed to keep your ankles and knees in alignment, and I’ve gotta say, I noticed a difference in my stride. My foot consistently stays in the center of the shoe instead of rolling too far to the inside or outside on an uneven landing.”
