# 1 Body care products. 

I don't know about you, but my teens have recently discovered all of the body product lines available. They go so far as to take possession of my personal collection. They are crazy about hand creams, lip balms, hair mists, bubble baths, facial cleansers, and more ... It's not just a girl's passion. Guys are also paying more and more attention to their appearance. You can get all these beautiful products for body care at the Isabelle & Coccinelle d'Amos boutique.

# 2 Reusable water bottles.

They are super practical, especially in times of pandemic, since all drinkers are currently closed. In addition, they are the first step towards a more eco-responsible world since they prevent you from invading the planet with all these single-use plastic bottles. Whether it is to carry around to school, from one class to another, or for different sports, you will probably always need it in your daily life. I believe this article is the most useful of the whole list. You will find several colors / sizes / brands available at retailers Sports Experts of the region.
