PopSockets Counterfeit Warning

PopSockets Counterfeit Warning

PopSockets is aware that counterfeit products exist in the market and we take very seriously the impact to us and especially to you. We don’t want you duped, and you shouldn’t purchase a cheap knock-off just as you shouldn’t buy a knock-off car or have a knock-off dentist in your grill.

Counterfeits and knock-offs often appear to be authentic but they lack the high quality materials and superior functionality that PopSockets has worked hard to consistently deliver. PopSockets has always taken pride in creating great products, and we are determined to eliminate this counterfeiting issue, including daily monitoring of websites and marketplaces and, in some instances, local and federal legal actions. If it were legal to go Chuck Norris on them, this issue would have been solved by now. PopSockets are vigorously enforcing counterfeits and knock-offs with registered intellectual property around the world. 

Purchasing products from unauthorised sellers is done at your own risk. Be cautious of sellers that offer substantial discounts. In India, Upbeatz is the official distributor for PopSockets.

The wise expression “If it’s too good to be true, it probably is” fits here as it does when a long-lost cousin from Tanzania needs your bank info to wire your share of of the 32,800,000USD given to them by a prince.

Monsoon skincare from Anatomicals

Monsoon skincare from Anatomicals

We are Anatomicals, Britain's funky bath and body company. Come rain or shine, we want to keep you looking, feeling and smelling good!
Here are 5 ways to keep your skin feeling and looking healthy this monsoon:
1. Cleanse: Wash your face and hands from time to time to keep them clean. It is important to get rid of sweat, grime and dirt as these can clog pores and cause breakouts and infections. 
2. Exfoliate: Exfoliate regularly to get rid of dead and dull skin, to make your skin look and feel clean, healthy and vibrant. 
3. Moisturise: It is very important to moisturise during monsoons, as humidity strips your skin of moisture. Moisturise well to keep your skin soft and supple. 
4. Use sunscreen: Even though it is cloudy and you may not see the sun for days, UV rays can still cause damage to your skin. Use a sunscreen to protect your skin from sun damage.
5. Hydrate: Drink enough water to avoid dehydration. Humidity can make you sweat and not drinking enough water can have adverse effects on your body, even making your skin look dull.
Take good care of your body this monsoon, because we only want you for your body!

11 ways to use Mamakutti's Sun Dried Tomato and Olive Tapenade

11 ways to use Mamakutti's Sun Dried Tomato and Olive Tapenade

Made using the best ingredients - kalamata olives, green olives, sun dried tomatoes, garlic, balsamico, red chilli flakes, olive oil, and sea salt. Mamakutti's Sun Dried Tomato and Olive Tapenade is perfectly tart, spicy, redolent of olives, and garlic.

Use it the way you like, feel free to experiment but also try the following suggestions:
  • Dip in to its luscious flavour with crusty bread, use it as a spread (works very well with cream cheese or salty feta).
  • Toss tapenade with boiled new potatoes, blanched green beans, and shallots. Chill. Add a few tomato slices, hard-boiled egg, and tuna for a Niçoise-esque potato salad.
  • Add a dollop to your morning avocado toast. Sprinkle with red pepper flakes. Fried egg highly encouraged.
  • Thin the tapenade out with more olive oil and add a touch more lemon juice. Bam!–Olive Vinaigrette! I bet it’d be great on a salad.
  • Mix it with mayonnaise and you’ve got an amazing spread. Make a killer turkey sandwich or go all out and have it with lamb burgers.
  • Swirl it into a simple soup.
  • Dress a bowl of spaghetti. Use a little pasta water to loosen it up. Shower with parmesan and fresh mint and/or parsley. Yum!
  • Rub it under the skin of your next roast chicken. Roast some potatoes in the same pan to catch the olive-y drippings.
  • Mix the tapenade into softened butter and spread on grilled sweet corn. Sprinkle with chives. This move will change your life.
  • Stir it into hummus, make a cucumber salad, and grab a bag of pita chips on your way to the park. Picnic! Don’t forget a bottle of wine.
  • Grill steaks or fish and smear a spoonful over the top.
