What I Am Loving…Right Now

2018 April 19

Here are a few things I am loving right now…the monochromatic edition. I would be lying if I didn’t say that packaging plays a major role in a lot of my consumer product purchases but these six favorites aren’t just pretty to look at. They have become instant staples in my beauty and wellness routine and I think you will love them as much as I do:

Bathpack. This was an Instagram find (do you find yourself shopping via the app more and more or is it just me?) recommended by Jenna Rammell, who I follow and adore. And it was worth every penny…particularly since it only cost 500 of them! This detangling brush is – dare I say it – better than the WetBrush. It glides through my hair (and more importantly, my daughter’s bird’s nest) with incredible ease and very little snagging, if any. I don’t know how or why it’s different, but it is. And for $5, you owe it to yourself to try it firsthand, even if you are skeptical.

Agent Nateur. Another Instagram recommendation, this time via Meg Biram. I am going to go out there and say this is the best natural deodorant I have tried. And I have tried several, trust me. This keeps me feeling – and smelling – clean all day long, no matter where it takes me. I got the men’s version because I like a musk-y scent and couldn’t resist that gorgeous all-black packaging…sigh. But am going to try the women’s next. If you enter code NATURAL at check-out via this link, it’s 20% off until 4/25.

Kristin Ess Working Serum. I am basically a sucker for all things Kristin Ess right now. Her haircare line for Target is great. I am using most of it on the regular (including this, this and this) but wanted to spotlight this serum because I am convinced it’s a game-changer. I use a pea sized amount in my wet hair and just work it through the mid-section and ends and let it air dry and the finish is always sleek, frizz-free and soft. I love it. This is the only thing I have not loved from her line. Leaves my hair feeling crunchy. This is still my favorite wave spray.

May Lindstrom The Honey Mud. This was a big-ticket purchase that I pondered for a long time before taking the plunge this month because a) I am about to be 40 and b) my skin is about to be 40, too. This interview with her via Caroline Hirons also made me want to buy anything and everything she is making. So I bought this. And I love it. Again, the jar is so beautiful I want to put it on display, but the product itself is incredible as well. It’s an all-natural raw honey mask infused with clay and plant oils and it leaves your skin feeling incredibly soft, supple and balanced. You can use it as a cleanser or a mask but to me, something this indulgent should absolutely be enjoyed in 20 minute increments. Your skin – almost 40 or not – will thank you.

Majestic Pure Castor Oil Serum. Ever since I gave up my beloved eye lash extensions (too much maintenance), I have been looking for a more natural way to boost the look of my lashes so I don’t look half as tired as I am. I read about castor oil being a good, natural booster and found this one in a two minute search on Amazon. I’m glad I did. I use it at night on both my lashes and my brows and can say with certainty it has made a difference in just a little over a month. If I remembered to do it every single night, it would be even more dramatic. I have heard good things about Lash Boost but this is a) cheaper and b) more natural and I am willing to take the long and steady road to thicker, longer lashes so this is a great alternative.

goop Bath Soaks. When gP came out with this line of bath soaks a few months ago, I thought it was genius. Not only are the individual bags a beautiful accent to your bath surround, but the specially formulated blends of salts, essential oils, botanicals and minerals take therapeutic soaking to another level. I bought the Soak Set to try three different formulations – G. Nite, The Martini and G. Tox – and they are all amazing in their own ways. I am not traditionally a huge bath person but these heavenly soaks have converted me. My only note is that they can get messy; be ready to give your tub a good rinse immediately after using to avoid any staining or too much leftover residue. Otherwise, soak in serious style.

Hope you love it all. x
