Well, it’s certainly one way to name a new product. In Spotify’s latest release, “Car Thing” is a smart player that mounts to your dash easily allowing you to play your music while driving. I personally already have a set up that allows me to do just that with my phone attaching to the dash as well. The biggest difference here though is that the smart player is voice activated and can hear your commands leaving you fully hands-free, or rather, hands off of the phone. That’s one thing that my set up can’t solve for at the moment. Spotify Car Thing will likely retail for $80, but right now if you’re selected by Spotify to try out the product, you’ll get it for free not including the $7 shipping/handling fee. Add your name to the list [here].

If I had to pick one brand that saved me during quarantine, it would be Hero Cosmetics. Since the beginning of mask wearing their patches have always come through for me. I hope you’ll believe me when I tell you that the maskne was rampant. It’s also the brand that I’ve been sharing with my own friends. Now that they’ve clearly succeeded in this area, they are introducing a line of new products that they hope will be incorporated into your skincare routine.
Their [Clear Collective Collection] is a three-step system that they believe will prevent future blemishes. For the set of three products, the bundle will cost $35 or you can buy each one individually at $12.99. I’ve watched many videos of people’s skincare routines that feels like a 10-step process and honestly, who has time for that in a day? Hero Cosmetics is making a promise that you really only need three essentials: their [Exfoliating Jelly Cleanser], [Balancing Capsule Toner], and [Clarifying Prebiotic Moisturizer].
“We want to make products for the entire life cycle of the pimple. Clear Collective is basically our foray into the ‘prevent’ category,” founder Ju Rhyu says, noting that the patches fall into the brand’s “treat” category, while the Rescue Balm and Lighting Wand fall into the “repair and restore” bucket.

We were slightly okay with this when we thought it was macaroni and cheese dyed pink. It’s unconventional, but we get it given the theme. However, learning that this is a sweetened version of mac and cheese, we have major reservations. First off, who is asking for this?
How exactly is the macaroni and cheese sweetened? ie) what gives it the sugary taste? According to a spokesperson, the shade of bright pink comes from beetroot and carrot concentrates. It could be worse, but it actually sounds healthy. As for the taste though, you’ll find fructose, natural flavors and vanilla extract. Basically, this meal is going to taste like candy.
While it is an interesting PR move, you won’t be able to find this special edition box in stores. Kraft instead will be holding a sweepstakes where 1,000 winners at random will receive one of these select boxes. You can enter now until February 8th [here]. And yes, while I’m completely confused by the idea, I did enter because I like to win.

In pandemic times, we’ve all had to make adjustments both big and small within our lives. Those of us who are used to buying a daily coffee (myself included) no longer find it safe to uphold those same habits. As a result, people are given two options really – learn to live without it or do it yourself at home. We’re not quite at the stage of making it ourselves yet, but in six months, maybe we will be!
[Cuzen Matcha] is giving people the chance to get their regular matcha fix at home with a new machine and it’s just as easy as one that makes coffee. In a traditional tea shop, making matcha involves grinding and adding in water by hand which all feels manual. However, this device automates a portion of this process making this even simpler and convenient for home.
Boasting a minimalist appearance, the innovative kitchen device features a compact ceramic mill that grinds tea leaves and dispenses them into a carafe, while a magnetic stirrer mixes water with the matcha powder to create the perfect cup of beverage.
If you’re a regular matcha consumer who could benefit from having a device like this, you can purchase one [here] for $369 USD. The machine also comes with three packets of tea leaves as well as a whisking cup to get you started.
