The SB Hot List: 14 New Discoveries We LOVE

Isle of Paradise Self-Tanning Drops

“I bought Isle of Paradise self-tanning drops last week and LOVE them. They are clear color correction tanning drops. You can use them on both your face and body, and they are also very hydrating. Plus, they can be mixed with serums, moisturizers, and foundation. The more drops you use, the deeper the tan.” — Anne Henley Walker, Digital Marketing Analyst

ikoo Deep Caring Hair Mask

“I’m always looking for new products to keep my hair as hydrated and healthy as possible. I recently tried this ikoo hair mask, and I am obsessed with it! You apply it in the shower after shampooing and leave it in for five minutes before rinsing it out. It leaves my hair so soft and shiny, and it smells amazing, too! They also have masks to help with color protection and breakage.” — Brianna Goebel, Editorial Assistant

CCHOME Makeup Brush Cleaner

This makeup brush cleaner cleans and dries your makeup brushes in just a few seconds. It’s the most incredible and satisfying thing. You put a little bit of the cleaner in the bowl and find the brush holder that fits. Then just turn it on and hold your brush in the solution, and watch as the dirt just melts away! It’s one of the coolest gadgets ever. It’s like magic!” — Zoe Yarborough, Staff Writer

City of Girls

“One of my 2021 resolutions is to read at least 12 books throughout the year. First on my list was Elizabeth Gilbert’s City of Girls. I loved it! It was a fun and easy read, and I was genuinely sad to finish it. I definitely recommend it!” — Bailey Torkelson, Editorial & Marketing Assistant Manager

Little Sleepies’ Zippies

“I recently fell in love with Little Sleepies’ Zippies. Their website says their jammies fit three times longer than typical pajamas, and it’s true! My not-so-little guy is growing like a weed. At almost 10 months, he already needs 18- to 24-month sizes in lots of brands, but his first pair of Zippies (size 6 to 12 months) still fit, and he’s been wearing them since he was probably 6 months old. When I realized how long these pajamas had been fitting him, I immediately bought two more pairs. Plus, the fabric is a super comfy bamboo material, there is a double zipper for easy diaper changes, and there are built-in foldover hand and foot cuffs!” — Lauren Cummings, Business Coordinator

Something Was Wrong Podcast

“As a longtime listener and fan club member of Crime Junkie, I recently discovered the podcast Something Was Wrong. I’m late to the game, but I am now hooked on it and have already binged the first season in record time. This is a great podcast with interesting topics that is easy to listen to and not too scary — I can listen to it during my walks without getting full-body chills. I definitely recommend this for those who like true crime material but also need something to balance out the terrifying cases!” — Taylor Justice, Birmingham Client Success Representative

“I’m newly obsessed with Hungryroot. I’ve shunned meal delivery services in the past because I considered them costly and wasteful with mostly unappetizing (to me) meal options. I always thought I could make food just as good, if not better, with less expensive, simple ingredients from the grocery store. Enter Hungryroot. It’s like a hybrid meal and grocery delivery service. You can fill your box with meals that are simple to put together (like cauliflower linguine and chicken) and/or groceries (just a bag of spinach or one of Hungryroot’s famous healthy sauces) up until your point limit. My favorites so far are the aforementioned cauliflower linguine, the turkey and feta burgers, and the superfood tomato sauce.” — Megan Casey, Director of Marketing

Dash Mini Waffle Maker

“I love the Dash mini waffle maker. I was definitely influenced by TikTok, but I bought this little guy for only $10 on a whim and have been surprised at how much I’ve used it already. From keto breakfast sandwiches to waffles for weekend brunches, this little guy is perfect. The best part is that it takes up hardly any room, which is perfect for my small kitchen!” — Emily Beene, Account Executive

“The Wilds”

“Everybody needs to know about my new TV show fix ‘The Wilds.’ My friends and I started this on Amazon Prime, and we were completely hooked and emotionally invested within about half of an episode. The show follows a group of high school girls fighting for survival on an island after a less-than-accidental plane crash. That’s all I can say. This is a must-watch!” — Peyton Haecker, Digital Marketing Analyst

Evolve Scents

“One of my dearest longtime friends (who lives in Texas) surprised me a few weeks ago and sent me a package out of the blue. When I opened it, I discovered some of the most incredible candles … turns out, he recently began his own mom-and-pop business! His hand-poured candles are incredible. In particular, ‘Out of the Woods’ captures a really nostalgic scent from my childhood. It brings back memories of camping and toasting marshmallows mixed with an incense they used to burn at the church I grew up in. It’s perfection.” — Jenna Bratcher, Lead Nashville Writer & Associate Editor

Kate’s Real Food

Kate’s Real Food sent us some samples, and they were great! I’d put them in the meal replacements department unless you are disciplined enough to eat half a bar as each bar is two servings. Unlike many bars, these actually taste good, are filling, and use real, organic ingredients. I tried several of the flavors and was really impressed. If you like bars, but not the ingredients found in most, try these. You can order them online or use the ‘store locator’ to find a store near you.” — Jay Graves, Chief Operating Officer

Brow Chow

“If you’re anything like me, I love makeup, but I’m not a pro by any means. I’ve watched endless tutorials on how to shape my brows, contour, etc. But this little number is magic. I got this in my Ipsy bag about two months ago, and it’s my favorite thing I’ve received. If you want perfectly shaped brows that don’t look like you tried too hard, this is the item to get. It comes in four shades, so there’s likely a color similar to your brow. Plus, it’s pretty inexpensive at $14!” — Katelyn Caughron, Memphis Client Success Representative
