most used items - IHOD

I thought it was time to pass along my tried and true list of most used items this year. I usually only like to recommend a product if I am really sure about it. These really did bless the mess of 2020. I would love to hear yours as well!

  1. Charcoal Mask – With mask wearing came lots of lovely breakouts this, and this charcoal mask has been the best overnight spot treatment. My son has been wearing masks all day in school so the charcoal bar has been great for him. (They are offering a 20% off code for first time orders right now, and travel size mask is free with a Band of Beauty.)
  2. Thrive mascara – The only makeup item I am loyal to is mascara since it can fool me into believing I am not tired. I have tried all of the cleaner options too, and this one wins. No residue and applies thick. It does feel clumpy at the end of the day though.
  3. Frother – Not a necessity by any means, but certainly our most used item of the year. Gabe and I both look forward to our morning coffee and this amazing gadget turns it into a frothy latte. So easy to use, and pretty sure it’s the reason we pretty much cut out drive through coffee orders.
  4. Clean Deo – I’ve tried all of the clean deodorants. I admit I was skeptical about the new Beautycounter Clean Deo, but after a few months of use I have been so impressed at how high performing this one is. It’s a clean ingredient formula they have been working on for 5 yrs that feels lightweight (not pasty), lasts all day, and has incredible scents. I also love that it is re-fillable so when you run out, you just order a refill cartridge.
  5. CBD Oil – Back in the spring, I realized anxiety was getting the best of me. I read up on the benefits of CBD oil, consulted my doctor, and researched places to get purely sourced CBD. I started taking Equilibria’s liquid drops and gel capsules, and immediately noticed a difference. Grateful for this resource that helped keep me mentally stronger for my family this year. You can read FAQ’s about CBD oil here. *So important to consult your doctor as well as sometimes medication may be the best answer!* You can also use code: ‘inhonorofdesign’ for 15% off! (Gabe and I both use the balance box for best price.)
  6. Productivity Planner – I was looking for a planner that had an area for block scheduling, to-dos, meal planning, goal tracker, and monthly calendar. A tall order, but this one checked all of the boxes! I keep an online calendar too, but having things on pen and paper helps me remember so much better.
  7. W & P Porter Ceramic Mug – Diswasher/microwave safe ceramic to go mug that fit in my car console. I take drinks seriously – he he. Also love a good insulated drink carrier to keep coffee hot all morning.
  8. Airpods – I actually hate that this is even on my list. ha! When these first came out I thought it was ridiculous to pay that amount for ear buds. After buying three sets of knockoffs that all broke or didn’t function properly, I finally caved. I get it now. They just work really well. They have long lasting battery life which I appreciate the most. I use these all of the time for podcasts.
  9. Zella Leggings – Pretty much lived in these activewear leggings. Motivation to actually be active was slim, but it would remind me to move my body for ten minutes a day with the kids or sometimes late at night. Love the side pockets as well.

What were your most used items this year? Probably should have included all of the quarantine snacks….
