You Deserve To Treat Yourself, So Here Are 36 Splurge-Worthy Products

While money can’t technically buy happiness, it can *definitely* help.

Splurge-Worthy Products to Treat Yourself

Every now and then, it’s important to indulge in a little self-care and treat yourself to something special. Whether it’s a luxurious beauty product, a high-quality gadget, or a unique experience, splurging on yourself can bring a sense of joy and rejuvenation. In this blog post, we will explore a selection of splurge-worthy products that are worth considering when you want to pamper yourself.

1. Luxury Skincare

Investing in high-quality skincare products can make a noticeable difference in the health and appearance of your skin. Consider splurging on a luxurious moisturizer, serum, or facial oil that is tailored to your specific needs. Look for products that contain nourishing ingredients like hyaluronic acid, retinol, or vitamin C to promote hydration, collagen production, and overall skin rejuvenation.

2. Designer Handbags

A designer handbag is not only a fashion statement but also an investment. Treat yourself to a timeless piece from a renowned brand that will elevate any outfit and last for years to come. Look for classic styles like a leather tote or a structured shoulder bag that can transition seamlessly from day to night. Remember to choose a color and size that suits your personal style and needs.

3. Tech Gadgets

If you’re a tech enthusiast, splurging on the latest gadgets can be incredibly satisfying. Consider upgrading your smartphone, investing in a high-quality camera or headphones, or treating yourself to a state-of-the-art smartwatch. These gadgets not only enhance your daily life but also provide you with the latest features and technology.

4. Spa Retreat

Indulge in a luxurious spa retreat to relax and rejuvenate your mind and body. Book a weekend getaway at a spa resort or treat yourself to a day of pampering at a local spa. Enjoy a massage, facial, or body treatment that will leave you feeling refreshed and revitalized. Take the time to unwind, soak in a hot tub, and enjoy the serene ambiance of a spa environment.

5. Fine Dining Experience

Treat yourself to a memorable dining experience at a high-end restaurant. Choose a restaurant known for its exceptional cuisine, elegant ambiance, and top-notch service. Whether you prefer a multi-course tasting menu or a gourmet steakhouse, savoring a delicious meal prepared by talented chefs is a wonderful way to indulge in a splurge-worthy experience.

6. Luxury Travel

If you have the means, splurge on a luxurious travel experience that will create lasting memories. Whether it’s a luxurious cruise, a private villa in a tropical paradise, or a first-class flight to your dream destination, traveling in style can be an incredible treat. Immerse yourself in the local culture, explore breathtaking sights, and enjoy the comfort and luxury of a well-curated travel experience.

7. Fine Jewelry

A piece of fine jewelry is a timeless investment that can be cherished for generations. Consider splurging on a delicate necklace, a pair of elegant earrings, or a stunning statement ring. Choose a piece that reflects your personal style and can be worn for special occasions or as an everyday accessory. Fine jewelry not only adds a touch of sophistication to your outfits but also holds sentimental value.

Remember, treating yourself to something special is not about being extravagant or materialistic. It’s about recognizing your worth, celebrating your achievements, and taking the time to prioritize self-care. Whether it’s a small indulgence or a big-ticket item, splurging on yourself can be a rewarding experience that enhances your well-being and overall happiness.

1. A highly rated Revlon hot air brush to dry and style hair at the same time so you won’t have to take several steps in your styling routine. This one’s for you “fashionably late” people!

Promising reviews: “I have mid-length 4c hair and this works perfectly! It doesn’t take too long to do. I started off on the low setting and went back over it with the cool setting. It really got the full length of my hair and my hair didn’t feel dry or damaged at all ( I rinsed it and used hair lotion and combed out my hair before I used the dryer).” —Jess

“I kept seeing this all over social media. I assumed it was a gimmick and I wasn’t going to love it, let alone like it. I was going to use it, and figured with Amazon’s amazing return policy I was probably gonna just return it. What do I have to lose? I have wavy/curly hair. Normally, my hair is still frizzy after I blow it out with a round brush and dryer. I have to add product to smooth it out and then go over with my iron. Not anymore. No more adding smoothing gels and serums that just weight down my hair, making it look dirty, or flat ironing it after. And…it feels so soft. And it lasts. Currently on day three of waking up with the best hair ever. What is this magical device?!?” —Kelli Michele

Get it from Amazon for $38.48+ (available in nine styles).

2. Or a Dyson Airwrap multistyler if you *really* feel like splurging (as you should). Rather than using intense heat, it uses airflow to give you a blowout without damaging your hair. It can give you a stretched blowout, mermaid waves, C-curls, a sleek side part — it can basically do anything your pretty little heart desires.

The included attachments are a 1.2- and 1.6-inch barrel, a soft smoothing brush, a firm smoothing brush, and a round volumizing brush, as well as storage case and a filter cleaning brush.

Here’s what BuzzFeed editor Elizabeth Lilly has to say about it: “You can read my in-depth review of the Dyson Airwrap‘s first model for all sorts of deets. Since the 2018 release, the company has improved upon the original and has longer tool attachments to make drying and styling even easier. TL;DR: Once you’ve practiced a few times, it’s easy to use all the attachments and it leaves your hair looking shinier and feeling less dry than heat drying and then using flat irons or curling irons to achieve your desired look. Note that you do want to rough dry your hair a bit before going in with the attachments. It’s, understandably, a huge financial undertaking but if you have the coin and put a LOT of time into heat styling your hair like I do, it can be worth it to you.”

Promising review: “These earrings are everything I’ve been hoping for! I had stopped wearing earrings because they were uncomfortable to sleep in. I was tired of taking them out half asleep at night and losing one. I came across these online and was skeptical but am so happy I purchased them! I forget they are even in my ears! I have super sensitive skin and most earrings irritate my skin. These haven’t caused any trouble in the past few weeks I’ve had them. Highly recommend for anyone on the fence!” —Alyssa

6. A light-up rain cloud diffuser that’ll do anything but rain on your parade. You can drop in your fave essential oils for aromatherapy and it comes with seven different light colors so you can choose one to set the mood! Plus the sound of the water flowing is just so darn relaxing.

Promising review: “I love this thing. I have anxiety and insomnia, and I need background noise to function/sleep. This little desktop fountain is SO SOOTHING, both aesthetically and the sound of the little raindrops. If I’m in the room with it, it’s probably on. If you love the sound of rain this is for you. Because I’m paranoid and I want this to last, I run it with plain distilled water and I have not used essential oils with it even though they say it’s fine. It’s very dry here right now, and I still only have to top up the water every few days, even with it running daily. It’s a solid 12/10 from me.” —Violet

7. A Nespresso Vertuo coffee and espresso maker if plain ol’ instant coffee just doesn’t do it for ya anymore. It’ll brew both coffee or espresso depending on which pod you put in for an oh-so-delicious morning pick me up.

It comes with a 40-oz. removable water tank!

I have a Nespresso Vertuo and it has probably been the greatest investment I have ever made. Granted it may be a tad bit expensive, but in the long run you may just be saving money (if you NEED an iced latte every day). Plus it definitely beats having to leaving my apartment way too early to get my morning fix when all I have to do is put in a new pod, press the brew button, and wait around a minute for it to brew!

Personally, I’m a latte girlie so I usually use espresso pods (these are my faves btw), but you can put also put in a coffee pod. Based on the size of the pod, it’ll know how much to brew automatically. P.S. there are three different sizes for coffee and four different sizes for espresso.

Promising review: “I like iced coffee with high caffeine. This fits the bill perfectly and is a joy to use and drink. My Starbucks monthly bill has come down considerably after buying this unit, and I’m ready to hit the ground running that much sooner in the morning. I especially enjoy the self cleaning feature and the ability to run it for smaller or larger cup sizes. Truly a premium product.” —David T.

Get it from Amazon for $199.86+ (available in three colors, plus in bundle options with the Aeroccino milk frother).


8. And a rapid cold brew maker for the “iced coffee only” drinker who needs *a lot* of it. It makes 40 ounces of joe in under NINE minutes and you’ll be able to choose from three different strength settings depending on how late you stayed up the night before bingeing your fave TV show.

Promising review: “I like cold brew year-round and this may be my favorite method/machine yet! It’s so easy to assemble, use, and clean. In about 15 minutes I was impressed with how rich and bold the brew was, with no grounds like others I’ve tried.  It looks great on my kitchen counter. It’s lightweight and stable with the base suction cups. It makes a little noise but much less than I expected (and less than my Nespresso machine).” —Liz

9. The famous nonstick ceramic Always Pan (the 2.0 version!) that’s made with nontoxic ceramic materials. You’ll be able to replace up to 10 pieces of boring ol’ cookware because this bad boy can do it all! The best part? The ~eye-catching~ colors they come in.

Our Place

It comes with a steamer basket, pouring spout, and a nesting spatula with a rest. You can even put it in the oven — talk about versatility! What makes the 2.0 version different? They’ve upgraded the nonstick to last 50% longer and it’s oven-safe to 450°! 

Our Place is a POC-owned business based in Los Angeles. All of their boxes are packaged with biodegradable and recyclable materials, and the Always Pan is made in a woman-owned factory in China.

Promising review: “My always pan is going to be my new favorite cooking ware. Super versatile and absolutely beautiful. Love the functionality that it possesses and the versatility range, someone really thought about all the best way to cook with this! Safe, easy to clean, and beautiful to look at! Makes you want to cook more delicious meals all day long! Shipping took a while because I preordered, but I was happy to wait!” —Celyn V.

Get it from Our Place for $150 (available in 11 colors and also in mini and large).

10. A leave-in conditioning spray to fight frizz and static during this dreadful winter. It’s perfect for all hair types and only takes seconds to apply. Just spritz it everywhere after washing and your hair will be shiny and revived in no time.

Promising review: “I got this in my Ipsy glam bag a few years ago and was mad when I ran out. I randomly saw this the other day and remembered how much I had loved it previously. This product is amazing!! My hair feels like pure silk! It’s sooo soft and smooth after using this. I’ve used so many other products, expensive ones, and nothing works as well as this! I highly recommend this!” —Melissa C

11. A three-tiered ring floor lamp that’s like a ring toss but ~adult~. It’s the perfect mood lighting — not too harsh but also not too dark. Each ring should last up to 20,000 hours so you’ll NEVER have to replace them!

Promising review: “The light is nice! It’s a unique looking light. I love how it has three different settings so you can adjust the brightness. It fits perfectly with my reading chaise and goes well with the rest of my living room decor. The only con I have is I wish the cord was clear instead of black, it sticks out. Other than that, I love the light. I’d definitely recommend it to others.” —Carmelita Joy

12. A JW Pei scrunched baguette bag because there is no other purse worthy of holding your phone, wallet, and keys when you’re out and about. This will *for sure* elevate your ‘fit to a new level.

This hip label is Chinese American- and family-owned and makes its gorgeous bags with vegan leather and recycled plastic!

Buzzfeed Shopping editor Kayla Boyd has this and raves “When I started seeing this new ‘It bag’ all over Instagram, I knew I had to have it. What shocked me was the fact that it’s less than $100! The quality is amazing — the vegan leather is sturdy, it has a nice faux suede lining, and the magnetic closure actually stays closed. The adorable ‘scrunchie’ design is such a great way to jazz up an outfit. Plus, it’s a great size for the necessities like my phone, wallet, keys, mask, and lip gloss. I definitely plan on buying more colors!” 

Promising review: “I needed more ‘date’ bags as most of my bags are huge. I ordered this and it’s exquisite. Soft and not too small. Big enough for a small purse, my keys, lipstick, extra face mask, and iPhone. Highly recommend.” —Techy

Promising review: “We waffled about getting this kettle. Surely the cheapie electric one we had would do the trick for amateur pour-over enthusiasts? No. Wrong. This is superior in every aspect. The temperature holding feature is amazing — no more heating up the water, forgetting you started, and having to heat it up again. Definitely more consistent in temperature, creating more consistent cups of coffee.” —Emily A.

Get it from Fellow for $195 (available in 11 colors and styles) or from Amazon for $165+ (available in six styles). 

14. A Sol De Janeiro hair and body mist that smells absolutely divine. When you walk into a room, you’re seriously going to be turning heads because of the vanilla, salted caramel, and pistachio scent trail you leave behind.

Promising review: “I have smelled this on other women in public and have been too scared to ask what it was they were wearing. I bought this on a whim on the Prime Day sale and was FLOORED. It’s equal parts summer/beachy with an almost coconut vanilla essence but also gives cozy fall vibes as well. I can’t stop smelling my own hair, this stuff is amazing.” —Caralina Casperson

The jars are BPA-free, as well as microwave and dishwasher safe.

BuzzFeed Shopping contributor Rachel Dunkel says: “Before working from home became the norm, I would use these handy jars to bring my lunch almost every day. They’re perfect for things like fruit, salad, or something saucy — stuff you really don’t want to get squished *and* want to ensure doesn’t leak into your bag. *But* I have found that I use them just as much at home full-time! They are of course great for leftovers, but also for prepped ingredients for the week. Shredded cheese, prepped chicken, and chopped veggies usually live in these, ready to be utilized for a quick lunch or snack. They clean *super* well — I even have the cream color and it recovered from storing beets! 10/10 from me.”

Get them from Amazon for $24.49+ each (available in three sizes and seven colors).

16. A “dog bed for humans” so you can take a break from spoiling your pup and splurge on yourself instead! It’s so cushy and soft, you’ll end up spending the whole day/night in this thing, literally, since you can even sleep in here.

Promising review: “I saw this online and decided that I’m giving it a try. I have a hard time sleeping without feeling support around me. I toss and turn over 40 times per night according to my sleep app. I tried this hoping for the best and I will say, I slept like a baby for the first time in seven years. I put a pillow under each side to prop it up to make it cradle in more and I’m in heaven. I’m 57 and have had a hard time dealing with the emptiness of divorce. Who needs a man when you’ve got this to sleep in? Purchase it! You won’t regret it. And best of all, no one snoring next to me! Win, win!” —Heavenstinyangels

The customizable heat and vibration settings make it easy to personalize my self-care routine. I have also been a longtime user of gua sha on my shoulders for whenever I feel overheated.

I used 3–4 times a week , about two droplets per application. You don’t need a lot of product for it to be effective. Within three weeks, I had visible results! I have tried other products similar to this and they did nothing. I will be ordering on a regular basis. Highly recommend for ingrown hairs, razor bumps, and razor burn.

I get so many compliments on it and it’s seriously so cozy and well-made. My only complaint would be how hard thing thing makes it to get out of bed in the mornings. It’s incredibly soft and isn’t the type of ‘fur’ that will mat and get gross-looking over time. I rely heavily on reviews when I buy things so I’m here to tell you — if you’re on the fence about buying this…do it!! Also, the pillowcases are amazing.

Here’s what BuzzFeed Shopping writer Jessica Hall has to say about it: “Here’s what OK I know, these are expensive, but let me tell you, the hype is real. I got one and thought it was going to be *my* new favorite blanket. Little did I know my husband would soon discover it and claim it as his own. Because we couldn’t decide who was more worthy of this amazingly soft and cuddly blanket, we GOT ANOTHER. Yes, that is how great they are, we had to get two so we wouldn’t have to fight over it. This one is definitely worth the splurge. But if you’re not into the price tag, check out this comparable blanket (only $29.99) reviewers have been loving.”

Promising review: “Wow!! This is just like the Barefoot Dreams robes and it is luscious! I live in the Midwest and my house is always cold. I use a blanket daily and I needed a new one. I tried a couple of other super store brands and all were inferior to what I was used to. I’ve seen the Barefoot Dreams throw for years but who spends $180 on a throw!?!? Well, I guess: me. I was desperate and so so happy with my purchase. No smell, great size (a little bigger than most throws) and so soft. I hope they never change this style!!” —M. Swatek

Here’s what BuzzFeed Shopping writer Jessica Hall has to say about it: “As a wannabe fitness girly, I have started paying a bit more attention to the foods I eat, specifically in terms of how much protein I eat. I find it to be somewhat difficult to consume my full day’s worth of protein, and I am not a huge fan of protein bars or protein shakes. I decided to give this thing a try after seeing it literally all over TikTok and how people were making lower calorie protein ice cream in it. The TikTok influencers are *not* lying, you should absolutely get this thing. It comes with little pints, you mix up all your ingredients, pop it in the freezer for 24 hours and then put it in the machine. It legit makes a delicious treat with such a  ~creamy~ texture. I have found my best recipe so far is a vanilla protein shake, a little bit of sugar free pudding mix (the fats in it help the texture…at least that’s what the Internet told me, so obvi I believe it), and a dash of vanilla extract. Once that’s all mixed, I’ll throw in some Oreos or M&Ms to have myself a high protein version of a McFlurry. You can also make delicious smoothie bowls, sorbets, milkshakes, and more. I definitely imagine I’ll be using it even more often in the summer when it’s hot and I want something cold and refreshing.”

Promising review: “Everyone needs a Ninja Creami. We love ours! I have made cherry, banana, raspberry, and blueberry sorbets plus churro and chocolate ice cream. The recipe book is full of easy-to-make recipes. Easy to clean and simple to use. Just push a button and then a minute later you have ice cream!” —julie krueger

27. And a Ninja Thirsti Drink System for anyone who refuses to drink unflavored, still water. This baby turns water into a bubbly, fruity-flavored drink with just a push of a few buttons.

I have one of these in my home and let me tell you, it is an absolute game changer. I used to buy sparkling water every day and it reaaally added up. With this I can choose how fizzy I want my drink, whatever flavors I want, and how intense I want it! IMHO, the best part is the variety of flavors it comes in and the benefits they have! The starter pack comes with caffeine, electrolyte, vitamin, and unsweetened flavor drops and they all taste DELICIOUS. You can even mix two flavors together! Plus, it’s super easy to make and takes about a minute — just fill up the water reservoir, set your preferences, and press start. This is the BEST investment for carbonated drink fanatics out there! Sometimes when I run out of flavor drops, I’ll use Mio after my water is carbonated and it tastes just as yummy!

Promising review: “Ninja Thirsti Drink System is such an awesome innovation!! First off, Ninja is an AMAZING brand. Quality is everything, let alone technology! The Thirsti Drink System is cute and does not take up space! Can convert any Drink to carbonation!! AMAZING!” —NN2109

Get it from Ninja or Amazon for $149.99.

Pond Los Angeles

Pond Los Angeles is an Asian woman-owned small biz that creates luxurious travel products to make your next flight the absolute coziest.

Promising review: “I fly a lot and am constantly trying to find a hoodie with a big hood to cover my eyes so I can catch up on some beauty sleep on flights. I saw this product on Instagram and knew it would be a game changer. I was able to use it recently for the first time on an early-morning flight, and let me tell you, it is EVERYTHING I was looking for and more. It’s comfy, cozy, oversized, and the eye covers make you feel like you’re in a whole other world and not packed like a sardine on a plane. My over ear headphones fit perfectly under it and I got the best sleep I’ve had on a plane — EVER! Like other reviews have said, it is big, so size down if you want something a little more snug. I have been wearing it every day at home and can’t wait to get the black and blush ones!” —Heather G.

Get it from Pond Los Angeles for $102.40+ (originally $128; available in women’s sizes XS–2XL and four colors).

Promising review: “I have horrific tension headaches and migraines. This thing melts them away so quickly. You can adjust the pressure by pulling on the handles or lay back into it. The heat is just enough to relax. I went around and around trying to decide if something like this was worth it and I finally just decided to try it. Trust me; buy the massager!” —Kelly Dyer

BuzzFeed Shopping editor Heather Braga already loves these Uggs: “I recently got these Ugg minis and have been wearing them as my ‘work shoes’ now that I WFH full time. They’re the perfect mix between a slipper and an actual shoe, so I can continue to wear my comfiest clothes to ‘the office’ (my kitchen table) but also feel like I’ve somewhat transitioned into work mode for the day. They’re super soft, as all Uggs are, and honestly just make me happy! They are true-to-size so no worries about sizing up or down.”

31. The Foreo Luna Mini 2 if your splurge funds are dedicated to skincare. This vibrating brush has soft silicone bristles to cleanse your pores and remove all that built-up gunk.

One side has thinner touchpoints for more sensitive skin, with thicker bristles on the tip, specifically for your T-zone, and the other side has broader touchpoints to deep-cleanse oily skin! 

Promising review: “This product is well worth the money!! It has offered me the deepest facial cleansing I have ever experienced. My face is always much smoother and tighter after using it. I have been using it in the morning, once a day, for the past month and my pores are smaller than ever before. Additionally, it has reduced the redness of my skin tremendously. Anytime I have a breakout after about two washes with this cleanser the blemishes are completely gone. However, I must note that since using it I no longer have serious breakouts!! I am so glad I found this product. I recommend it to all my friends and family trying to improve their skincare routines.” —Amazon Customer

32. A waterproof Kindle for all you bookworms who love to read any chance you get. Instead of carrying a few of your favorite novels with you (ugh, heavvvvvy) just take this handy device that can hold all the books you can dream of!

Here’s what HuffPost Shopping writer Haley Zovickian has to say about it: “I recently bought a Kindle and it has, no exaggeration, revolutionized my life. I love mine for so many reasons — it’s truly helped me incorporate my love of reading into my often hectic life, and all my titles literally live inside of this half-pound wonder gadget, so I can switch between books super easily. For traveling, this is a literal dream. I don’t have to pick between titles and then regret the entire trip that I didn’t bring the one I left at home — and, as any book lover knows, traveling with books is heavy as hell, and the Kindle literally completely eliminates that weight. Traveling will never be the same for me.” 

Promising review: “I LOVE reading and being able to access a book anywhere with this thing. It is easy to navigate, very easy to read and adjust the brightness or how warm the light is. It doesn’t auto adjust, but I don’t need that feature. I’ve read in bright sunlight to dark rooms, and it’s always been so clear. You can adjust the font and use the library to search whatever books you want. Makes packing books for traveling very easy. Battery life lasts me two weeks if I’m reading every day for a few hours. You have to have internet and it only shows books. This is not a tablet to surf the internet or use other apps on.” —R@L0

Get it from Amazon for $139.99+ (available in 8GB and 16GB sizes, three colors, and with or without ads).


33. A Dagne Dover carryall duffle bag that’s literally practicality at its finest. It’ll keep your laptop safe with its padded pocket, your dirty clothes separated from the clean ones, and so much more! It even comes with a sleeve on the outside so you can strap it onto your luggage handle. But wait, I haven’t even gotten to the best part yet — it fits *perfectly* under the airplane seat!

BuzzFeed Shopping editor Emma McAnaw owns this very bag and raves about it: “I use this every time I travel — and I never, I mean NEVER, check bags. I even took this with me to Amsterdam and easily packed about four sweaters, DOC MARTENS, and all my undies and toiletries. To be fair, I wore the same pants for four days (I am cheap, guys), but I never felt like I needed more space. And yes — even Spirit lets me take this.”

Promising review: “LOVE this bag!! It’s the perfect size for me. Fits perfectly under an airplane seat and has ample room for all my carry-on stuff/ simple weekend getaway. I also love how it slides onto my roller bag. Did I mention that I get LOTS of compliments on it, too??” —ChicagoJM

Get it from Nordstrom for $215 (available in four colors).

34. A pair of Bose headphones so you can vibe to “Fast Car” on repeat without a care in the world because they’re *completely* noise canceling! You can also change the mode to “full awareness” if you’re wandering out and about and need to pay attention to your surroundings.

You can set the bass, mid-range and treble levels to your preference and create your own concert. They offer up to 24 hours of battery life.

Promising review: “I needed noise-canceling headphones for when I go into the office as it can be noisy there and it is hard to concentrate. So when I wear these headphones I don’t hear anything! And they really keep the charge for a long time which is terrific! And they are very comfortable to wear. And they come with a great case that is very portable for traveling. Highly recommend!” —tvgirl

35. Brightland’s Duo olive oil set because reviewers say these pack so much more flavor compared to what you find in your average grocery store. Whip up a romantic date night meal with this oil and treat your boo and your tastebuds!

The Awake olive oil is best used for roasting, sautéing, soups, stews, and bread, and the Alive olive oil is designed for salads, hummus, baked goods, fresh greens, and bread. 

Brightland is a WOC-owned small business that sources olives for their oils from a family-run farm in California. 

Promising review: “I have yet to find another olive oil with better flavor than Brightland. I find myself making meals specifically just to use this lovely olive oil. It is a total game changer. Say goodbye to that nasty bitter flavor that comes with most commercial oils, and hello to an explosion of flavors and spice. Ordering and shipping are always a breeze, you can also easily adjust the subscription to suit your needs. I’m so happy to have found this product, it honestly makes everything taste better.” —Jen

Get it from Brightland or Amazon for $74. 

36. A gorgeous, compact Beast blender so you can whip up your favorite concoctions in a jiffy with just a push of a button — it runs on a one-minute timer! This baby just looks so sleek and modern, you’ll never want to store it away in a cabinet.

P.S. The blending bowl also doubles as a portable thermos and comes with a screw-on drinking lid and carry cap.

Here’s what former BuzzFeed Shopping writer Brittany Ross has to say about it: “I got this blender over the summer, and wow, as someone who had firmly decided I was an ‘I don’t need a blender’ person, I quickly changed my mind after the first use. For starters, it’s not as large as those super industrial-strength blenders, and it’s so aesthetically-pleasing that I have it out on my counter at all times. Plus, it couldn’t be easier to use — just fill the bowl with your ingredients, pulse, and in a matter of ~moments~ you’ll have a perfectly uniform blend of whatever you’re trying to blitz. I first tried it out on a smoothie made with frozen bananas and peaches (see it in action on TikTok here!), and it pulverized the icy fruit like a champ. Best of all? It’s a total breeze to clean, which, if I’m being honest, was probably the biggest factor in my having waited so long to add a blender to my kitchen arsenal. I can’t recommend it enough, 15/10, no notes.”
