Don’t fret just yet! There’s still some summer left in this crazy year of 2020. Before we start thinking about homework and chillier weather, enjoy the last month of our favorite season with some of our favorite editor’s finds. From taking care of body and mind to innovation for a last-minute beach vacation, we’ve got some products that will be sure to last long after the last pool day is over.
Spruce up your inside this year with a cute and unique collection of indoor plants from Bloomscape. The Happy Trails Collection comes with three small indoor plants that are so easy to care for that even the blackest of thumbs can take care of them. This collection has three plants with trailing vines: the Philodendron Velvet, the Hoya, and the Pilea Baby Tears. They need medium to bright light and low water, so daily care is simple.
Plants can help make a home look so much brighter and livelier and the Happy Trails collection is no different. The Philodendron Velvet has soft, dark-green, and burgundy heart-shaped leaves that perfectly complements the creamy-white and green variegated leaves of the variegated Hoya. The Pilea Baby Tears’ playful, yet delicate silvery green leaves trail along the edges of the pot. A few small plants put around your home will help clean the air and put a smile on your face.
Good things come in small packages. From SanDisk, that couldn’t be more true. Smaller than a smartphone, the SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD packs more than a punch. It’s capacity of up to 2TB storage lets you offload all your high-res photos and creative files without running out of space. But that’s not all. It’s IP55 rating means it stands up to rain, spills, and dust. Work on the go without worry.
Personally handcrafted with mindfully and ethically sourced materials, Linneas Lights are beautiful luxury accents for any home. The elegance starts with sophisticated packaging and is only increasingly lovely. The hand blending, pouring, and finishing confirms their unwavering commitment to quality and beauty. And the Linneas Lights scent collection is gorgeous with elegant exotic fragrances like Belgian Linen, Moss + Lichen, and Cashmere, with the ever-classics like Lavender and Peony.
Mother-daughter matching is always on-trend. Following the trend with jewelry is even sweeter, which is why this product makes our Editor’s Finds list. Tell her how much she’s cared for by gifting her with a tiny love token of either a flower, heart or star necklace from Beth Jewelry. And of course, mom needs one too! The larger versions of the flower, heart, or star come in a variety of metals as well as lengths, and like the smaller versions, are all handmade.

When comfort is key, sweats are where you’ll find it. But FEAT has taken our favorite type of lounge-wear to an entirely new level.
The BlanketBlend Hoodie is made with a custom-developed fabric that combines the comfort of cotton, with polyester-like performance, and is finished off with a rare yarn & ButterWash process, creating a super-soft hoodie for every occasion. It’s what dreams are made of, which will make it your new favorite hoodie.
And the buttery soft, 4-way stretch of the Roam Joggers will wrap you in comfort from hiking and yoga, or ‘Netflix and chill’. Slip them on in the morning to still feel the warm-bed comfort. When heading out, just throw a house key and lip gloss in the zippered back pocket for safekeeping. Or maybe they’ll just become the pants you look forward to after a long day of work. Treat yourself or a loved one to cozy comfort. Feel good while looking great in Feat’s super ButterWash fabric wear.
Forget chemicals, additives, and all the things you can’t pronounce. Plant-based natural products can do the job safely. And if you have an aromatherapy obsession, you’ll get the best of both worlds with Zum Body. Deeply moisturizing and not oily, the Zum Body Lotion from Indigo Wild features botanical extracts like aloe vera, carrot, and hibiscus, making it one of the most premium shea butter body lotions on the market. We love the relaxing citrus and natural scents of Sea Salt.
There’s nothing cuter than Mommy/Daughter matching outfits, except for maybe the Mommy and Me matching swimsuits from CUPSHE. Show your family pride with bathing suits in both adult and kids sizes. CUPSHE has trendy swimwear in all sizes and styles for mom, and now daughters everywhere can match. The Royal Elegance One-Piece Swimsuit and matching Blue Floral Print One-Piece Swimsuit for Girls are idential bright blue and white floral one-pieces that looks great on many different body types.

Sometimes the most beautiful moments happen at night. Don’t let bad lighting be the disadvantage to snapping amazing selfies after the sun sets. Capture amazing photos or video from your device with the ultimate portable lighting accessory that attaches directly to any device. One of our favorite tech editor’s finds is the UltraLight because it fits any phone, case, tablet and laptop, giving you intuitive access to customized brightness and hue.
It’s fun to wear jewelry that doesn’t just look good, but tells a unique story. No one’s two adventures are ever the same. So whether you’re an avid traveler filled with wanderlust or just filled with hometown pride, keep all those memories close with a selection of rings from the Jet Set Candy collection.
The Adventure Bound/Homeward Bound Ring is the perfect hand accessory from our list of editor’s finds for someone always on the go. Not only is it beautiful, made in either solid sterling silver or vermeil gold, but it’s a fun piece that can be customized. When heading out of town, point the head of the airplane away from your fingertips when putting it on. That direction will reveal the words “Adventure Bound”. When packing up the hotel room, reverse the design, revealing the words “Homeward Bound” to those you come across heading home, sweet home.
Our Editor’s Finds list definitely includes hair products, because who doesn’t want to spend less time on great hair? Get shiny, beautifully smooth locks in not 3…not 2… but only 1 single pass with the T3 SinglePass Ceramic 1″ Flat Iron. The 5 custom blend plates and beveled StyleEdge design make it the only flat iron you need to get sleek, straight, or even curled hair. And it’ll be done comfortably with ThermoTech trademarked technology – insulating the heat regardless of which of the 5-settings being used.
Before straightening, hair should be dry to the touch. The T3 Featherweight 3i Hair Dryer dries hair healthier and leaves it shinier with the T3 IonAir Generator technology for frizz-free hair. 3 heat settings, 2 speed settings, and a lock-in cool shot button seals in the shine and helps hold the style. Apply a favorite post-dry product or use the T3 SinglePass Ceramic 1″ Flat Iron and start the day, faster and with sleek, shiny hair.

No one wants to talk about acne and blemishes, but they happen. It’s the lucky ones that only need to worry about the occasional blackhead. The best time to deal with them is at night with the Acne-Clear Invisible Dots. The clear round stickers contain a 0.5% Salicylic Acid solution to help effectively reduce and heal acne and blackheads while you sleep. And, if you just happen to have one pop up in the morning, they’re clear so you can wear these editor’s finds all day too.
But let’s face it. Even if we aren’t dealing with acne now, there’s still post-blemish marks from those awkward teenage years, or dark patches and uneven skin tone caused by sun damage and aging that might need a little help. With a cutting-edge, expert-level 15% Brightening Complex, it reduces the look of unflattering marks and makes skin brighter and less dull. Who couldn’t use a little bit of that?
