Come Clean CellCell

Ultimate Desk Toy TSFW (Totally Safe for Work!)


There is no denying that adulting is exhausting and we all need a bit of nostalgia. From fashion to film and everything in between, we just want things to be simple again. “Adulting” has its perks certainly but for the days when you wish you were still a kid, we have something for you. Introducing the first scented personal relaxation putty called Cellcell. According to the creators of Cellcell, it is anything but silly.

Cellcell is a personal relaxation tool that goes where you go. It uses sensory relaxation through tactile and olfactory stimulation to ease your stress.  Stress is the biggest inhibitor of creativity and an invitation to disease and fear.  Cellcell will provide a calm and relaxing environment to nest your emotions.  In a digital world, we are often deprived of tactile opportunities to channel our emotions. Emotions are stored in the cellular level of each being and can reside there long after an incident has occurred or a memory forgotten. Take some time each day to play with Cellcell and reset your emotional mind frame to face the world with positivity and light.

Cellcell comes in an array of colors that are modern, sophisticated and fashion forward. Some best sellers include Cake, Piscine, Manuka and Flamingo. Each design has a certain story. Cake is an off white, icing like putty with multicolored glitter inside. With the buttercream vanilla scent, this yummy Cellcell is for ideal for relaxation and celebration. Piscine is reminiscent of first days of summer by the swimming pool with best buds. Thankfully, it doesn’t smell like chlorine and more like coconut oil and sunscreen in a Caribbean paradise. Playing with this Cellcell is a quick escape to the tropics without the sand between your toes. Manuka is a golden flow of honeysuckle blossom goodness. Just like the New Zealand honey but without the sticky mess. This Cellcell has tiny little bears inside the honey jar.

Playing with Cellcell is a great thinking tool and the ultimate desk toy. It is a discrete way to recharge on those long days, brainstorming sessions and helping you figure out just exactly what the client needs. Tactile stimulation, along with aromatherapy is great mood boosters without caffeine jitters.

New to a job or not friends with your office mates yet? Let Cellcell be a conversation starter and when you collection grows, swap and trade with your colleagues too.

This is surely a clever take on a childhood favorite toy. With endless possibility in colors, scents and texture, Cellcell focuses on pop culture trends, fashion inspired patterns and social media driven fads. With the advent of social media exposing how lonely most people are, it’s hard to believe that a little putty in a jar can center you again.

But it can! Studies have shown that even 5 minutes of reflection and meditative state of mind can recharge a drained person. A midday motivation can not only elevate your mood but also resolve negative feelings with your boss and coworkers too. When you are feeling especially irritable with a case of the Mondays, try Cellcell and you may surprise yourself. And if squishy it around doesn’t help at all, you can chuck it across the room at the person making you mad.


Made with natural materials with no preservatives, Cellcell is happy to take your bad juju from you. Keep it safely airtight in its jar and you can use each one for up to 30 days. Once it gets dirty from your hand and thoughts, toss it out and reorder another one. Some people have favorites while others like to switch it up. My preference? The all year plan for 24 Cellcell scents (2 per month) for the best deal to see if this reimagined putty can truly improve creativity and productivity this year.

Build Your Beauty Arsenal!

BEAUTILITY – his beauty tool is saving time and money as it is able to scrape the last of your product stuck at the end of your bottle. From lotions to foundation, to moisturizer to shampoos, this beauty tool is a must-have for your beauty arsenal!

Build Your Beauty Arsenal With BEAUTILITY®

Innovative company combines beauty and utility

Be beautiful on purpose with BEAUTILITY®. Passionate about creating groundbreaking, solution-oriented beauty tools and accessories that help you get the most out of your makeup and other beauty products, BEAUTILITY® is designing unique, revolutionary products that have never existed until now!

When we get toward the bottom of our beauty products, we’ll do almost anything to get it all out – shaking, setting it upside down, or cutting open tubes. Unfortunately, there is usually still plenty left clinging to the sides and bottom. Consumer Reports stated that up to 25% of your product can be stuck in the bottle. That’s a savings of $250 each year for the average woman, or over $12,000 in a lifetime of makeup! How can you use every last drop you paid for? BEAUTILITY’s recoup BEAUTISCOOP®Find out how this “beauty spatula” won’t let any products go to waste:

  • Vibrant and Versatile: Available in a crisp green and white color, this flexible tool’s patented dual scoop design allows you to get every last drop of your beauty. From lotion to lip gloss, makeup to moisturizer, serum to shampoo, the scoops fit into the narrow openings of the smallest to tallest containers to capture every ounce.
  • Patented Technology: No wait, no waste with this unique tool. The scoop collapses to fit through any tight opening, and then flares back out to cling, capture and cradle product without spilling.
  • Scoop and Save: The recoup BEAUTISCOOP® works with ease and, even better, pays for itself over and over as you scoop and save. An essential tool for any woman to recoup her beauty, time, and money.
  • Keep it Clean: This multi-functional product is easily cleaned with soap and water or makeup wipes for various use.

Founder Michelle Gast came up with the idea behind recoup BEAUTISCOOP® back in October of 2006. While getting ready for her day, she realized, yet again, that she was near the bottom of her face lotion. With no spatula small enough to do the trick, the idea struck her – a beauty tool that reached into every container from tiny to gigantic to use every last drop.

“The beauty of the product is that not only do women get to enjoy what we call ‘the satisfaction of the scoop,’ but the recoup BEAUTISCOOP® effectively pays for itself, as women use it over and over again, to scoop and save.”

The recoup BEAUTISCOOP® is available in two color combinations, and an 8” and 11” length for tall body lotion, shampoo and conditioner bottles. The product is sold 8” devices separately or in a DUO set including the 8” and 11” devices.  It is currently available for purchase at, various spas and boutiques.


BEAUTILITY® founder, Michelle Gast, set out to create a company whose tagline, “beauty on purpose,” is evident in both their problem-solving products, and in their mission to uplift women and help solve bigger problems. With a focus on purpose, rather than pretention, BEAUTILITY® combines beauty and utility with revolutionary products like the recoup BEAUTISCOOP® and recoup BEAUTISCOOP PRO®, innovative tools that help women to make the most out of their beauty. The idea of giving back is at the heart of the company – a portion of every product’s profits will go towards partnering with global initiatives that fight poverty and injustice around the world.
