This summer I’ve already spent a lot of time outdoors, hiking and camping whenever I get the chance. When a colleague gave me these pants to try, I was a little skeptical because usually I’m fine with a pair of tights and a big t-shirt. But I have to say, this season these pants have been a lifesaver. They’re surprisingly comfortable and breathable, while also repelling water, and I even discovered that mosquitos couldn’t seem to bite through them—a must when you’re camping in the back country. —Alexandra Donaldson, fashion and beauty editor

I could sing this water pitcher’s praises for days. The Santevia alkaline water pitcher allows you have natural pH balanced water without having to constantly buy expensive bottles of mineral water in stores. If that weren’t reason enough to snatch this up, the water pitcher can easily fit into smaller fridges, has an easy-fill lid feature (a.k.a no more removing a big bulky lid to refill your pitcher) and it also has a built in clock that counts down the days until it’s time to replace your filter. —Murissa Barrington, digital assistant

As someone extremely prone to headaches and migraines, I try to avoid taking medications as much as possible. Instead, I turn to natural remedies for relief. As soon as I tried this pick, I was sold. Made predominantly with peppermint, lavender and rosemary, the ingredients of this pick have headache relieving properties and leave a cooling feeling on the skin to reduce pain. Simply dab the product where you feel pressure, and you’re sure to start feeling better in no time! —Samara Abells, fashion and beauty intern
