Wait a second…it is already the second half of the year?! I swear that when I was a kid, in school, 180 days took FOREVER to come and go but now that I am an adult, I blink and it is already a year later. I cannot believe it is less than 150 days left till December 1st!
Okay, so since it is July, it is time for the monthly Amazon favorites for the month of June. Starting next month, this series will include non-Amazon favorites too and I’ll try to link them or find the closest match!

Now on to the favorites!
I want to start off with a new skin tool that I have started to use in the past couple of weeks and will be posting about it in detail after using it for a month. This item, to date, has been showing me a lot of results on clearing my skin from discoloration, redness, sub-dermal breakouts, and overall texture. It is not for the faint of heart as it does cause breaking of the skin, but my derma roller has been great! It comes in sanitary packaging and does require you to clean it with rubbing alcohol before and after use, but it has helped my skin turnover faster, sloughing off dead skin cells and generating collagen. I highly recommend this derma roller to anyone that is starting out. It is only $19.99 and currently has a $2 off coupon through Amazon, plus it is prime!
So I finally did it. I broke my pizza cutter after making homemade, vegetarian pizza almost every week. So I scoured the depths of Amazon to find this cutter wheel and it has been amazing thus far! It easily packs up so you do not cut yourself when searching through your utensils and doesn’t require the strength of the Hulk to cut! It also comes apart completely so you can get a deep clean. It is only $10.99 and comes in three different colors – blue, green, and red.
There is nothing like fresh coffee in the morning. In fact, if I did not have my morning cups (yep, cups as in 2), the world is not safe! But what is even better is freshly grounded coffee that is even more rich and robust. Recently on a Costco trip, we purchased local coffee that was roasted but whole bean. Instead of grinding it at Costco for free, we got a small but highly effective grinder that grinds the perfect amount for one carafe worth of coffee so there isn’t excess that loses its flavor. This grinder only costs $19/97 AND there is currently a 5% off coupon. It can also be used to grind spices if you are so inclined and cleans up easily! It is a little noisy but only takes a few seconds to grind it all the way so it isn’t too obtrusive.
If you get the occasional breakout, especially if you are a woman around that time of the month, then this product will be a life saver for you too! I bought this 24 pack of acne patches that are spot treatments for overnight use. They are a little thick but once you put it on, you can barely see anything at all. They work through various oils including tea tree, calendula and rosehip to pull out the bacteria and dirt and reduce the breakout! Because it is a hydrocolloid patch, it works without over drying your skin and easily peels off int he morning. And even I, a completely wild sleeper, have not taken one off during the night so I know it’ll work for you too! It is only $7.50 for 24 patches and comes in a resealable package so you do not have to use them all at once! There is also an AM version that is thinner and even more discreet if you need to wear a patch during the day.
Even if you shop organic, you should ALWAYS wash your fruits and vegetables. Between packing, shipping, and shelving, even the most green products can interact with chemicals and dirt which could have harmful reactions. This is part of the reason why I never eat a grape out of the bag and always wash my produce with white vinegar and water even IF the packaging says it has been washed. So to help with some of those harder produce items like potatoes, peaches, apples, and so on, I have this vegetable brush. It is soft enough that it doesn’t damage the item but strong enough that with a little soap, it really cleans up the produce. And for $5.99, I make sure to replace this every 3 months to prevent bacterial build-up. It is ergonomic too so it fits nicely in any hand size.
In keeping up with keeping everything clean, I recently re-purchased bottle cleaning brushes for all of those odd shaped bottles we now use. For example, our Ninja coffee carafe cannot easily be cleaned with a sponge nor can our 40oz water bottles we use for the gym. So we purchased this brush set, for only $11.98 (plus a current coupon for $2.00 off), really helps clean even the smallest crevice in the weirdest shaped bottle. We also replace these every few months, but they really last even with our daily use and our hard water! I would really recommend purchasing this set if you have any of those reusable straws or oblong bottles!
Last but not least for June is another re-purchase and another skin care item! Some of you know that being Armenian means that well, being hairy is common! But that doesn’t mean that I have to like it. I use these facial razors for derma-planing or facial shaving. No, this is not like my husband’s razor and NO the hair does not grow back thicker or darker. In fact, the hair has been growing back less frequently and in smaller patches. I will do a video on how I derma-plane but this set is only $4.80 for 6 and since I throw these out monthly so as to not incur a build-up of bacteria, it is a great deal.
I have also recently subscribed to Amazon’s new Prime Wardrobe program and will be doing a test of the items they have sent and how on point my stylist was with my wishes. Stay tuned for an update next week!
