Shiatsu Back Shoulder and Neck Massager with Heat

I get pretty bad headaches that seem to start in my neck and generally try to get a massage once per month to relieve them. But since Covid I needed to find something that could help ease my tight muscles at home. I was skeptical, but once I tried this I was hooked! I’ve since gotten it as a gift for other people who have all said the same thing. -Deanne Kaczerski, Digital Content Director,

Valmont Oxygenating Mask DetO2x Pack

This mask is beyond luxurious and you really do see the results immediately after you wash it off. It lathers on (kind of like shaving cream) and then morphs into tiny bubbles that literally oxygenate your face. The brand calls it an 'immediate shot of oxygen' and I couldn't agree more—it's the perfect Sunday night mask. -Maya Kachroo-Levine, Contributing Digital Editor,

Molly J. Signature Sampler CBD Gumdrops

I was skeptical about these because I’ve tried CBD gummies before and never felt any more relaxed than usual...but these are different. For starters, they have a higher dose than most out there, and they’re made by hand in small batches with natural fruit flavors. One at the end of a long day really takes the edge off and helps me get a good night’s sleep. -Cris Pearlstein, Freelance Digital Editor,
