    Dermatologist Sandra Lee — better known as Dr. Pimple Popper — is not your typical Instagram star. Instead of beauty tutorials or fashion hauls, Dr. Lee is known for her oozing, explosive, forever satisfying pimple popping videos. 

    She has a TLC show, a skincare line, and now she's released "Pimple Pete," an Operation-like tabletop game where players gently pull stubborn zits out of poor acne-prone Pete. If you pull too hard, Pete's pimple-ridden face will squirt you.

    Crazybaby Air 1S
    $159
    The Good
    Good sound • with powerful bass • Lightweight and comfortable
    The Bad
    Large • not-so-portable carrying case • Lousy battery life • Bluetooth pairing process can be stressful
    The Bottom Line
    While the Crazybaby Air 1S are truly wireless earbuds, a bulky carrying case with only 12-hours of battery life makes it a hard sell with a bass-heavy mix and a problematic pairing process.
