Everyday products that the editors at Wirecutter use but which do not feature in their comparative reviews are highlighted in the monthly round-up of Editors’ Picks. For March 2021, the favourites span from a Hailee Sweater Set to work bags, food, an insulated mug, earbuds and red light therapy panels, among others. The Free People Hailee Sweater Set comprising cosy but breathable fabric, is an oversized set that can be mixed and matched with any items of clothing in one’s wardrobe. Emily McNutt, senior travel editor, recommends a F.A.R. backpack that is water-resistant, lightweight and can house her laptop, water bottle and gym equipment, making it the perfect on-the-go option. Senior editor Chelsea Stone fell in love with a floral fanny pack by Baggu that can be worn as a crossbody and has an adjustable strap. In addition, she also vouches for a work tote from Cuyana which is zipped, can be carried as a crossbody and has enough space for devices, wallets and a water bottle.
Mike Andronico, senior tech writer, was impressed with the Jabra Elite 4 earbuds, which he deemed an outstanding pair for their sound quality, comfort and active noise cancellation feature, which rivals costlier alternatives. Rachel Dennis, editorial coordinator, gave kudos to the Ninja air fryer which can make various baked and fried dishes with ease and is stylishly designed. Spring sunglasses from Goodr, a silk shirt from Quince and minimalist chunky hoops from Mejuri were also on the esteemed list. The editors’ pick of food was MiLa, a Chinese food restaurant in Seattle that offers an array of Chinese cuisine and sauces that add flavour to any dish.
Two beauty products made the list, including Kerastase’s dandruff shampoo, which is an excellent option for individuals seeking a gentle, fragrant and nourishing dandruff shampoo. Act+Acre’s Cold Processed Curl Spray is now a must-have item for the editors at Wirecutter, especially for those with curly hair, as it helps refresh new curls and enhances the hairstyle’s overall appearance. Lastly, social lead Stephanie Griffin recommends adding a red light therapy panel from Heyday to your skincare routine, which can help alleviate acne scars and boost overall energy levels and sleep patterns. While it is considered pricey, the panel’s benefits include reducing inflammation and oxidative stress as well as improving collagen production, resulting in healthier skin.
