School is out, the tide is in, and summer 2022 is a-go. Though the beach was one of those places you could still travel to even at the height of COVID restrictions, the repeal of mask mandates and negative testing requirements sure make the whole experience much more appealing.
Of course, going to the beach for the first time in years likely means you are in need of supplies. If that is the case, you came to the right place. In recent weeks, We Know Products has written about a variety of beach gear, including a beach table, vacuum-insulated margarita tumblers, and an American flag beach umbrella. Here is another one to add to the list: rubber tote bags.
Now, longtime WKP readers know we are partial to the clear tote bags with U.S. flag patches. But we have also heard from fans who say they like the Expersion totes for going to games and concerts, but that they also want something a little more spacious for beach trips. This rubber tote fits the bill.
As you can see from the item’s title, this bag is literally “oversized,” so you will have zero problem fitting in everything you need to haul down from your hotel room to the shore.
5 Essential Beauty Products For Summer
June is rolling around and the summer season is quickly upon us. I’m a July Cancer, so I’d describe summer as the peak of my entire year. The long days, the longer nights, and scorching heat make keeping up with beauty even harder. I’ve got you covered when it comes to creating a summer survival kit stocked with skincare, makeup, and hair essentials.
- BRONZING SERUM
Sunshine in a bottle. This serum mimics the effects of Vitamin D for more youthful-looking skin without the damage. It’s packed with vital nutrients such as cocoa extract, platinum peptides, and a chronopeptide to brighten your skin. This serum helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and dullness allowing your skin to breathe while also producing a sun-kissed bronzy glow.
2. LIP SLEEPING MASK
A leave-on overnight lip mask that soothes and moisturizes for smoother lips. It’s a perfect summer staple to hydrate dry, flaky lips from the summer heat.
3. FACIAL SUNSCREEN
I’ve been using this product for as long as I can remember. It is a staple to my everyday skincare routine with its light, odorless, and oil-free formula. This facial sunscreen is recommended by dermatologists as it helps calm and protect sensitive skin types prone to acne, rosacea, and discoloration.
4. Self-Tanning Mousse
Do you want the perfect summer tan without lying by the pool every day? This mousse is enriched with soothing chamomile extract, antioxidant coffee seed extract, and rejuvenating pomegranate extract to leave your skin glowing. Think of it as literally your best summer tan, bottled. It is natural, streak free, and 100 percent vegan.
5. HYDRATING SHAMPOO
Summer months are full of sun and poolside parties, but they can be horrible on your hair. Between the heat, increased sun exposure, and chlorine, your hair may become dry and brittle. This is a rich and deeply hydrating shampoo that is gentle enough for daily use. Infused with moisture-attracting red algae, antioxidant argan oil, and Vitamins A and E, you’ll be sure to always have healthy hair this summer.
Take Your Wine And Cheese Outside With These Picnic Bags
Welcome to March! We keep writing that the teasing nature of the weather is getting us excited for warmer temperatures; now the calendar is finally backing us up. Everyone seems to have the same idea, as evidenced by the fact that picnic bags are now trending products on Amazon. I can’t be the only one excited to pack a lunch and a few bottles of wine to enjoy in the great outdoors.
If picnicking is also on your mind, here are some of the best picnic bags available on Amazon:
If you are the type of person for whom simplicity and elegance are paramount, the CleverMade SnapBasket is for you. It collapses to be the size of a laptop sleeve, then opens up to contain up to 30 liters. Potential uses for this bag go far beyond the modest picnic—take it to work, to the grocery store, pretty much anywhere you need to carry things.
The LEGACY tote caught my eye for one simple reason: its twin insulated wine pouches. Although a bit pricier than most picnic bags, its quality and functionality make that price worth paying. Furthermore, it also comes with a hardwood cheeseboard, a cheese knife, and a corkscrew. If you invest in this one, you certainly will be preparing for a picnic.
There are picnic bags with space for wine bottles, then there are wine bottle bags with space for picnic food. The Vogano backpack falls in the latter category. It was so obviously created with wine drinkers in mind that it has front pouches specifically for storing wine glasses. In fact, it even comes with said wine glasses, as well as 2 table napkins, 2 stainless steel spoons, forks and knifes,1 cutting board, 1 butter knife, 1 bottle opener, and 1 pepper & salt shaker set.
If price is the most important factor in your decision-making process, then you can’t beat this American flag tote bag from Expersion. It may not have the frills of the other bags on this list, but it has the added benefit of being vinyl, and it is therefore very easy to clean with a simple wipe.
How To Get An N95 Mask
After nearly two years of hectoring its subjects over the need to wear cloth masks in any and all public spaces, the U.S. government now says that cloth masks are basically worthless. I wouldn’t through out your cloth masks just yet—who knows when the guidance will change again—but you do need to procure other types of masks just to be safe. Airlines already banned gaiter and bandana masks, your cloth one may be next.
With that in mind, Biden administration announced that it will be sending N95 masks to pharmacies across the country. In theory, each person will be eligible to obtain three free masks. As we saw with the pre-Christmas at-home Covid test rush, it is very possible they will be out of stock when you try to claim yours. You should probably be making other arrangements.
Previously at We Know Products, we took a look at KF94 masks to see if they were more effective than KN95s. The verdict? Both types of masks are perfectly cromulent—less comfortable but more effective than cloth masks, less effective but more readily available than NIOSH-approved N95 masks.
Unfortunately, Amazon pretty much only lets the Chinese sell “NIOSH-approved N95 masks,” so there is always an inherent risk in purchasing them. We will let our readers know if and when they ever let American companies sell U.S.-made N95 masks. I wouldn’t hold my breath.
