Some of My Product Faves

July 12, 2009

There are some products that I just love! I am eternally grateful to the clever people who developed them, to the companies that produce them and the distributors that make it easy for me to buy my faves. While things like air conditioning, washing machines, refrigerators and cars fall into the larger umbrella category, I’m focusing today on smaller items that put the hot fudge on my sundae. (Two cherries on top please! Oops, got distracted for a minute…)

Here is a short (and incomplete) list:
Anything in the “post-it” product line. I am a power user of post-it notes. LOVE those post-it flags to mark poignant quotes in the books I’m reading. And the big post-it flip charts are a thing of beauty. You can brainstorm with a group and easily put the sheets on any available wall space so everyone can be reminded of their brilliance… and the thoughts on the way to brilliance.

Oil-free Hydrating Gel from Mary Kay. That was the product that tips the scales for me to become a user of Mary Kay cosmetics. It is lovely stuff that makes my skin feel moist and fresh with adding more oil. (I make plenty on my own, thank you very much.) And it is purple, my favorite color!!

•  Chafing Relief Powder Gel from Monistat. God in His infinite wisdom, made my thighs so they rub together, regardless of how skinny I am. (A little skinnier now than I’ve been for while.) This stuff keeps my inner thigh skin from getting irritated when I walk or run. Truly a miracle!

Good Cat! This is made by Pet Organics and is just the thing to take the edge off of my little Cleo’s anxiety. It says it is “for cats that are finicky, unfriendly or territorial.”  The back of the bottle says “helps balance the emotions of pets with behavior problems.” It definitely helps!!

Smores Crunch Bars by Medifast. This is one of the yummy bars flavors in the Take Shape for Life program that Ben and I both love. It gives me a chocolate fix while being a healthy, fast mini-meal that is balanced nearly one-to-one in the carb to protein ratio. A lot of their products are yummy, but this is the one I eat the most (and carry with me when I’ll be out at a lot of appointments.)

So, any faves you want to share?
