Top 50 Life Trends in October

From Silent Wireless Breast Pumps to Textile-Based Exosuits

— October 27, 2018 — Lifestyle
Although a category with an incredibly vast scope, the October 2018 life trends boast helpful products and platforms that will, without a doubt, bring communities together and the overall day-to-day quality of life up. One of the most exciting innovations on this inclusive list is Elvie's completely silent and wireless breast pump. This product can hold up to 150 milliliters of liquid and absolutely elevates the experience of motherhood in a convenient and tech-savvy manner. The device is discreet and offers for a seamless pumping experience.

Another predominant presence in the October 2018 life trend line-up are cannabis-infused products. From whole-plant CBD skincare to anxiety-reducing CBD bath bombs, the movement toward integrating this ingredient in everyday beauty products is in full swing.
