The Business Standard reviewed three exciting and innovative products that have created a buzz in recent times.
Portable neckband fan
Price: Tk330 to Tk5,000
Where to find: Daraz, Amazon
Recently this portable neckband fan has become popular, especially among online content creators. These can be found within Tk330 to Tk5,000. If you are thinking why the price range is so wide, it is because this product is available as both branded and non-branded in the market.
The non-branded market is mainly dominated by Chinese products which are relatively cheap, lightweight, and handy. Also, a Spanish brand TORRAS has come up with a portable 'bladeless' neck fan, which seems pretty promising. In build quality and warranty service, this Spanish brand is way better.
There are no warranties on the Chinese brands. However, you can buy TORRAS from Amazon with a one year warranty and to bring the product to Bangladesh, one has to use platforms such as Backpack or AirBringr.
If you want to buy one of the cheap ones from Daraz, kindly note that it does not have good reviews on the website.
This little portable neck fan is perfect for jogging, camping, hiking, climbing, traveling, office work, trips, gym, kitchen, indoor exercises, or outdoor activities. It has three modes to control the speed of the fan.
There is a USB to charge the fan via computer/ phone charger, power bank or laptops, etc. It supports 1800 mAh to 2600 mAh lithium battery. After 6-8 hours of charging, you can enjoy it for 2-3 hours without any interruption.
Even though it claims to provide 360° cooling, this is not entirely true. It only cools down the neck and chin area. For people who have excessive head and face sweating problems, this device is not recommended because it does not provide any solution to those. Furthermore, it produces a little noise, so if you prefer absolute silence, sadly, this gadget is not for you.
Price: Tk200 to Tk1,300
Where to find: Daraz, The Beautech Store Bangladesh
One of the most hyped products among beauty bloggers in recent times is the Jade roller. It is said that this roller works in anti-aging and is used for face massage. This little rolling pin is made of gemstone jade, which is pale green to a deep turquoise colour.
It is available in Daraz and online shops for Tk200 to Tk1,300. The price range differs depending on the quality of stone.
It has a double head. The smaller side is used for massaging the eye area, which helps to reduce puffiness. And the larger roller is used for neck and face massage. This multifunctional jade facial roller is claimed to thin the face, eliminate eye fatigue, promote blood flow, remove wrinkles from the eye, mouth, chin, and neck areas and reduce dark circles.
Every time after using the roller, one has to gently wash it to remove bacteria. And once a week, soak the roller in a bowl of warm water and soap for a few minutes for deep cleaning.
Its gentle pressure helps to stimulate blood circulation, leaves the facial muscles more relaxed, and boosts the skin's natural detoxification process.
According to experts' opinion, jade rollers are about as effective as any form of facial massage when it is done correctly. In that case, no matter what the price and quality of the roller is, you will get the same result. Instead, it would be best if you focus on facial massage and a few exercises. Maybe then, you can even skip this device.
Electric facial cleaner
Price: Tk220 to Tk1,100
Where to buy: Miniso, Daraz
This beauty product is a five in one electronic facial cleanser. One can use this with soap, scrub, cream, and smoothing gel. Also, if you want, you can apply lotion, oil, serum or foundation, using it. This easy-to-use gadget can be purchased from Tk220 to Tk1,100 and it is available in Daraz, different Facebook pages and Miniso.
Though the price between the branded and non-branded one has a huge difference, both work fine, according to users. It is more beneficial for people who take heavy makeup and looking for options for deep cleansing facial wash technique, but without investing much time and effort.
This package includes one main engine and five different cleaning heads for various purposes. To use this device, you need two AA batteries, and you are good to go for one month. Use it only for a few minutes and enjoy healthy skin.
It exfoliates the dead skin, clears the pores, and brings out the youthful skin. Other than that, it can be used to remove the hard cells under the elbow too. It has received good reviews from different beauty bloggers, so this product might be worth a try.
