It's hard not to be curious about internet-famous products. Will they do what they promise? Will they look good in person? We all can't help wondering. Thankfully, Brad Goreski shared his take on some items that have been all over social media during an Amazon Live session. Brad shared, "Most of the items are under $50, except for two. That's also always fun." Under $50? Sounds good to me. Brad remarked, "We've got clothing. We've got beauty. We've got kitchen gadgets. We have lots of different comfy loungey things as well."
His list has items to solve so many of your problems. Does your shirt keep riding up? He found something for that. Do you wish you could always have hot coffee at the perfect temperature? He has a solution for you. Even if you're more of an iced coffee person, he has a helpful product to keep your beverages cold without diluting the flavor with ice cubes. If you want to prevent blisters from uncomfortable footwear, Brad has a miracle product. And, if you'd like a $5,000 ring, Brad might have that for you. Well, he actually found a candle that has a ring hidden in the wax, which could be valued from $15 to $5,000. It's just a surprise every time. And the candles smell good anyway, so it's a win-win purchase.
