If there's one thing I take pride in as a coach - and really as a person - it's that I virtually never just speak from education. I speak from experience. 

I treat myself as the ultimate guinea pig, doing countless hours of research and then experimenting until I find the diamond in the rough that I can then confidently share with my friends, family, and clients. 

So today we're doing a roundup of my favorite products I discovered in 2023, covering every category from kitchen gadgets, to skincare, to hair care, to detox tools. 

Let's get into it! 

Ninja Air Fryer

I resisted getting an air fryer for ages because I thought 'C'mon, how is it all that different from having an oven??' Wildly different. It takes 3 minutes to heat up, can perfectly roast cauliflower in 5 minutes instead of 20, and is probably my most-used kitchen appliance.

It even has a resident spot on my small countertop which says a lot. I like this Ninja model because the nonstick is ceramic (I wanted to stay away from more toxic non-stick surfaces like teflon).

IQ Bar

This has been my go-to protein bar when I'm in a pinch. It is 180 calories so sometimes I'll just eat half and save some for later. But it tastes great, has a nice texture (not the stick-to-your-teeth texture of some clean protein bars out there), has 12 grams of protein, only 3 net carbs due to its 8 grams of fiber, has only 1 gram of sugar, and it has a fairly clean ingredients list:

Almonds, Tapioca Fiber, Plant-Based Protein Crisps (Pea Protein, Tapioca Starch), Natural Flavors, Pea Protein, Flaxseeds, Cocoa, Unsweetened Chocolate, Gum Acacia, Coconut Oil, Cocoa Butter, Water, Sunflower Lecithin, Vanilla Extract, Sea Salt, Non-GMO Steviol Glycosides, Lion's Mane, and Vitamin E.

Castor Oil Pack

We did an entire episode on the benefits of a castor oil pack which you can find here, but the long and short is this was the year of the liver for me. I discovered just how important this organ is not just in processing alcohol, but stabilizing blood sugar, balancing hormones, and healing the gut and skin.

Many of you know I've been working on my acne for the past 2 decades and once I finally did major work on my liver it actually cleared up!

Korean Skincare

This was another absolute game-changer for my skin. I had heard for years that Korean skincare is the way to go but I had NO IDEA the difference! Here are my favorite products I've found (ps I've cross-referenced to make sure these are a 3 or lower in the Environmental Working Group app and to make sure there are no pore clogging ingredients):

  • Beauty of Joseon Relief Sun Rice + Probiotics SPF 50: I have been on the hunt for a good sunscreen for ages. But for the longest time, every one I tried went on fine at first, but by the end of the day my makeup always separated and looked like shit. This is the first time I have ever found one I truly love and am happy to wear every single day. It's non-greasy and goes on like a moisturizer. And it plays so nicely with my makeup! Bonus points for its probiotic content. I've been doing a ton of research lately on the skin microbiome and how so many acne-fighting products kill off the good bacteria along with the bad, essentially doing the same damage to our skin that taking long-term antibiotics does to our gut! 
  • COSRX Snail Mucin Serum: This repeatedly showed up on 'best of' lists. This light-weight serum is great for repairing dark spots, calming acne-prone skin, and providing a clean-feeling hydration. I easily put it on under any other skincare and feels like I have nothing on! 

Acupressure Mat 

My sister-in-law got this for me for Christmas last year and I'm so glad she did! Basically, it's a mat that you lie on with all these tiny little acupressure points that help increase blood flow, thereby improving circulation, muscle recovery, relaxation, and aiding in neck and back pain relief.

Red Light Box

I've been using my sister's red light box every time I go over to her place for the past year and was so excited Santa decided to give me one of my own this year! At the core red light does one thing: improves cellular energy.

But because cellular energy is at the base of all bodily processes, the benefits are vast. Red light therapy can be used to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, alleviate skin conditions like acne, eczema, and psoriasis, optimize the brain and mood, reduce fatigue, and reduce inflammation.

Clearly filtered Water Pitcher

While I was doing all of my liver healing work I decided it was time to invest in a quality water filter that would remove problematic chlorine, fluoride, lead, BPAs, and PFAs without removing beneficial minerals.

My client highly recommended the Berkey filter, but ringing in at $400 it was a bit out of my price range. After lots of research I landed on Clearly Filtered. It isn't cheap at $110 but it felt like the best middle ground between price and quality!

Throat Coat Tea with Slippery Elm

As a gut health coach I'm always looking for simple products I can add to my routine that give you a lot of bang for your buck and this tea fits the bill. I've borderline started buying this in bulk because it's so useful for so many things. 

It has beautiful, GI-soothing ingredients like slippery elm, marshmallow root, licorice, and fennel which are fantastic if you struggle with acid reflux, any sort of inflammatory conditions of the GI tract, and is a staple I reach for the second I start to get sick since it creates a sort of coating on the throat making it difficult for bacteria and viruses to latch on.

Bed Head A Wave We Go

If you follow me on Instagram you probably have seen that more often than not my hair has a beachy wave to it. That is NOT my natural hair. In fact, I've always struggled with my hair. I have a lot of it but it's very fine, it tends to fall extremely flat, and while majority of it is straight, it gets crimped and frizzy along my hairline. Plus, if I blow dry it straight it'll look good for about 2 hours before getting greasy and stringy looking. Not a cute look.

Enter the A Wave We Go. I have never gotten so many compliments on my hair than when I started using this tool. It gives me volume and that natural beachy look I've always wanted. The waves last way longer than using a curling iron and something about waving my hair makes it last 2x longer between washings which has improved the health of my hair dramatically!

It does take a bit of practice, so don't give up if the first time you look a bit like a poodle! You'll find the setting and the technique that works best for you.

Carrie Soto Is Back

Taylor Jenkins Reid has done it again! I first discovered my favorite author when I stumbled across her book Malibu Rising at Half-Priced Books. Every book I've read of her's since then has been better than the last and her latest publication is no exception.

I read this book in 2 days over Christmas, and for this slow reader who usually takes a month to finish a book, that's saying something! Reid is brilliant at writing in a way that truly makes you feel like you're reading about someone who actually existed. You connect with her characters so deeply and are drawn into her slice-of-life stories immediately.
