Now that 2021 is coming to an end, I wanted to share with you some of my favorite purchases of the year.
These products are the ones that I truly love, and I can definitely recommend. So if you are looking for similar products, then these recommendation will help you to make a decision.

This list doesn’t have any order in particular, and each product belong to a different category.
You will find products for your home, skin care, fashion, etc.
If you want to start drinking more water, then I truly recommend getting this glass water bottle.
Not only is super easy to clean, it’s also very aesthetically pleasing (which is one the reasons I buy many things). If it looks pretty, I want it. That must be the Libra in me.
Also, I like to see how much water I’m drinking; and since it’s glass, I can see if I have been drinking enough water or if I need to step up my game.
Besides, it’s not only a good water bottle. I like to drink iced coffee in this as well since it has enough space for ice.
Another good thing to note, is that the company has a great customer service. With the first bottle I ordered, the lid would come off right away when it should have had some suction.
It’s weird to picture the issue, but basically if I grabbed the bottle by the lid, the bottle would fall and that shouldn’t happen.
I sent them a video explaining the issue, and they sent me another one.
The description on Amazon says it’s 24 oz water bottle, but it’s imposible to fill it to the maximum if you want to use the lid and avoid spilling water.
Sadly, this bag is sold out, but you can still go to the actual store and order it there. There might be a waitlist (I was in one for like two weeks), but it was totally worth it.
I just love everything about this bag. Perfect for a night out, or just when you want to carry the essentials.
I came across with these Korean exfoliating mitts a few years ago, and since then, I have been obsessed. In Chile, it was hard for me to find them, but on Amazon you have many options!
If you are looking for something cheaper, you can try these exfoliating mitts (which are the original version).
Why did I get the black mitts over the original version? Simply because I wanted something that could give me a better grip.
The way these Korean exfoliating mitts get rid of you dead skin is crazy. My skin feels SO soft afterwards.
If you want to try something new, THIS is the product you should choose. You won’t regret it!
If you are looking for a good body pillow case, then let me introduce you to Bedemu Body Pillow Cover.
I had a hard time to choose one I really like. First, I was looking for cotton, and other cases would say they are 100% when in reality they where just a combination of different materials.
Now, this pillow case is wrinkly, which is something you expect from cotton anyway, but at the end the quality is what I was focusing on.
Also, I didn’t want to pay too much for one pillow case, so this brand had everything I was looking for.
Another thing I liked in this pillow case, was the fact that it has those invisible zippers.
On 2021 I tried two different Vitamin C. This one by GOOD (SKIN) DAYS and the one by The Ordinary. I liked both, but I saw an actual changes with the vitamin C from The Ordinary.
Now, there’s a big different between those two products. The first one has 10% of ascorbic acid, and the other one has 23%.
I have sensitive skin, so I think it was a good idea to start with a vitamin C with a lower percentage. In way in peeped my skin for a stronger product because the one by The Ordinary DOES feel stronger on your skin.
Now many people don’t like the vitamin C from The Ordinary just because the texture is a little gritty. It’s also not a serum.
So if you can see past that texture, you should definitely try it. Besides… it has an amazing price!
I’m super particular with the hair brushes I like. For some reason, I hate the ones that are soft. So if you are like me and you prefer stronger bristles, then this is the hair brush for you.
I have been using this Goody copper hair brush for YEARS, and decided to repurchase it again since it was time to retire my old brush. Since then, I haven’t been able to find one as good as this one.
I actually had the oval brush first, but decided to get the paddle one this time. Any difference? Not really. The paddle brush is just a little bigger.
So as long as Goody keeps making this brush, I’m going to keep buying it.
This copper hair brush in particular is supposed to reduce build up and restore your hair’s natural moisture balance.
Now, I can’t tell you if those claims are real or not since my hair is healthy and shiny naturally, but I would give it a try!
Let’s talk about at-home hair removal options.
I have mentioned before on different posts that my favorite way to remove body hair is with wax (well, laser would be option #1 if it wasn’t so expensive).
I know that waxing at home can be a whole challenge especially if you don’t know what you are doing. I have been waxing for years, so I have learned a few tricks along the way from the professionals that do it for me.
Since I have been living in the US, I haven’t gotten the chance to try any salon that has this service. Mainly because I’m nervous about trying a new place; and secondly, because it’s a lot more pricey than in Chile.
So for those to reasons I just do it myself.
Now let’s go back to this hard wax in particular.
Why did I choose this hard wax? First, because of the reviews. In my hand if it’s designs for men body hair, then it’s going to get all my hairs as well; and two, it is cheaper than other hard wax I have seen online (especially if you compare them to the ones marketed for women).
Now, this hard wax has a “men essence”, and it’s VERY strong. So if you are sensitive to smells, then I would skip this one.
Truth to be told, I have been using these earrings non-stop since I got them (you can see them all over my Instagram).
Not only they are super cute, they are also amazing quality!
I got the 30.0 millimeters, and it was the perfect size for me.
This top is amazing. I don’t use it as a sports bra, just as a normal white top. The best thing about it, is that I don’t have to wear a bra with it.
I have been using it during the winter now as well, especially under sweaters or a flannel. I’ll definitely be getting it in different colors.
I’m just impress by the quality you get for just $7.
