Unboxing some stupid things that I got from AliExpress. Some are useful, and some seem useful but they turn out to be not. But either way, it is a fun activity to open new packages that cost very little, and come from very far.
Inflatable light with a solar panel
The first product is a solar LED lamp pillow that I got for camping. It weighs about a couple of ounces, or around 50 grams. It has an inflatable body that can be used on still water, and as long as the battery side is pointed up. The battery lasts for about 4 hours after it goes dark. There are 3 blinking modes: full, partial and disco.

I bought it so that we can take our dog to the beach with us during summer. We usually bring water and shade for her, but I figured a fan will make it even better.
This fan does not have and on/off switch, it starts working as soon as you plug it in. It is bendable, though not as cooperative as you would want it to be. The propeller is rather soft, and it doesn’t hurt much when I try to stop it.

Bunny wire holders
Wire holders are useful for organizing wires around the workplace. I use them to keep the chargers and the headphones cable handy at the desk so they don’t just lay on the floor. They keep my space tangle-free, and prolong the life of the said wires.

Plastic water bottle with a strap
The capacity is 500 ml, which is around 17 ounces or 2 cups. The strap is about 10 cm, or 4 inches.
The only thing that I noticed is a small mark on the cap, not sure if it’s a crack or a fusion mark. The bottle says “Bestseller” on the side. I’ve been using it for about 5 months so far, and it is as good as new.

These antique-looking boxes would work for jewelry, memory cards small electronics, gifts,
combustible entertainments of sorts, and such, I will use them as gift boxes for things.
I bought 10, 5 each from 2 different sellers, just to see who operates more efficiently,
but they were shipped the exact same way, and arrived on the same day.
They are all the same size, but the design looks slightly different on some of them.

Natural mineral deodorant
This is natural deodorant, which is mineral salt that you mix with water, and use as a spray. This is my third bottle of that deodorant – I’ve been using them for over a year now, and I love it.
Instead of blocking pores, it prevents the growth of bacteria that causes bad odor. The mineral takes a few bottle refills to dilute fully. The 35-gramm one lasts me around 12 weeks.

Full review: https://aliholic.com/crystal-deodorant-review/
It is a lint remover for clothes. The lint is stored in this blue copartment, which is removable for cleaning. There are 3 blades inside that trim the excess lint from the clothes, making them look more new and fresh. It does a great job trimming the lint on synthetic shirts, and not a very good job with arm hair. Of all the cheap things that I bought, this is definitely one of the ones that I’ve been using the most.
