Do you ever wonder, “Are these Instagram products worth buying?” We all do! So this week we bring you items we’ve bought off Instagram that have proven to be as good as advertised.
An Award-Winning Razor: Billie
How long did I (Lani) see ads for the Billie razor before pulling the trigger? Years, my friends, years. The ads on Forever35, one of my favorite podcasts, finally got me. I’m using the Forever35 link Billie here to help support the podcast and give you an extra discount.
My conclusion? Best. Razor. Ever. The Billie Razor is the best value for your money. Yes, it is super cute and comes with a genius holder and other accoutrement. But most importantly, the Billie Razor provides a smooth, non-irritating shave, in a long lasting blade. And they will ship new blades on your schedule. One more thing off your to do list! I am sold for life!
The Podcaster Favorite: Jenni Kayne
You could say I’m a little bit obsessed with this Jenni Kayne sweater coat. This divine sweater coat feels like a wearable blanket but looks totally chic. Both at dinner and over yoga leggings. In fact, I’ve thrown it over black pajamas to look presentable on family Zooms. Not into black? Don’t worry, the Jenni Kayne sweater coat also comes in navy, grey, and oatmeal. Looking for the perfect clothing gift? Look no further.
Cute and Comfortable: Birdies
Kyle and I have slowly been introducing Birdies into our clients’ closets over the last few seasons. We can now say with confidence that Birdies are a comfortable, good quality shoe brand. Some of the styles have more support than others, but they are a truly comfortable flat. The materials are all super soft, including the quilted foot beds with arch support! They have pointed, almond, and rounded toe styles, as well as sneakers and mules. I’ve been wearing their black wool boucle mules as chic slippers. The Heron style below lengthens the leg with the combination of the almond toe and the pointed upper.
Unbreakable Tights: Sheertex
Sheertex Classic Sheer Tights is a secret gleaned from one of our fabulous clients. Sick of spending $30 or more on stockings or tights and having them rip after a wear or two? Billed as one of the most resilient sheer tights in the world, Sheertex products come with a 90 day no-rip, snag or tear guarantee. They also make Classic Semi Opaque Tights, ultra-sheers, patterned, colored, and sparkly tights. Plus shapers, knee highs, and thigh highs. Go to the Sheertex website to check out all of the tough but fashionable options.
Long Lasting Polish: Static Nails Liquid Glass Lacquer
We have turned so many friends, family members, and clients onto Static Nails. If only they paid us back in free nail polish…
While I (Kyle) had seen these on Instagram before, Lani took the leap first, purchasing the above nudes palette. She loaned me the polishes to try out, and I was definitely impressed by their lasting power. A few years later, I now have over a dozen different full-size shades and have restocked on their primer and top coat multiple times! Not only do I really like their formula, but the brush is honestly perfect for doing your own manicures. When I try to use other brands, I find myself really struggling. My favorite shade currently is Mocha.
