A cold brew coffee maker that’ll reduce all those trips to your local coffee shop for an $8 drink.


Target

Target

Promising review:This is SOOO much better than tampons and pads. I can’t even feel it once it’s in. It’s so convenient because it lasts up to 12 hours and I can even put it in while in the shower instead of stepping out and unwrapping a tampon, etc. It’s like I don’t even have a period when I’m using it. I’m seriously in love with this thing.” –Target reviewer
