Chris Brogan had a great post, The Kinds of Products I Want to Touch in 2009, about reviewing products and what he wants to review on his blog this year. I thought it was a great blog post because it speaks to his needs and those looking for some good reviews and blog buzz.
I thought I’d do something similar to Chris and also http://www.luxlotus.com/ Windowlicker, which is genius, basically I’m posting stuff I’ve spotted, would love to try or own and think very highly off.
– Funkeyboard (keyboard stickers). I love the idea of giving my keyboard a more personalized look, but I just hope these stickers don’t peel off at the edges. Via ChipChick
– biOrb – I’ve wanted a small one for my workspace since they debutted and now they have a new line called the biOrb Life Collection, with a sleeker design. Although I think the baby biOrb is perfect at 4 gallons and also the most affordable.
– Luxury Soaps from Gilchristsoames.com. I’ve always loved fancy soaps and after using one a Gilchrist & Soames Chamomile Exfoliating signature soap during a hotel trip, I was hooked. The soap smells absolutely splendid and the light, clean smell remains on your skin long after you have showered but because of the natural exfoliating elements of the soap, you feel clean and not like you been covered in lotion like some other soaps.
At first, I thought the soap was made from green tea or tea tree oil because of that clean feeling it left on my skin but I was delighted to find it was made from chamomile instead. One really cool factor is that the soap contains small pieces of (what I believe is) dried pieces of chamomile leaves that actually resembles chopped nuts and once you begin using the soap they stand out and exfoliate while being visuallly appealing as well as olfactionary pleasing too.
Of course, they cost more than you might regularly pay for soaps but with brand name, perfumey (and lotiony) soaps costing more and more these days these soaps have got the competitors beat with visually interesting soaps, natural products and the great sensations of clean, soft skin.
