For women who like the finer things in life… the new Balmain Hair Couture Fall/Winter 2022 Limited Edition Collection is a chic no brainer. A luxe vegan leather emerald-green travel pouch – that also comes in black – contains 3 solid hair care and styling products, a scented candle, and they’re featuring luxe headbands and 18K gold plated hair jewelry. I mean, it’s travel hair heaven. Easy breezy and the ideal hair products for at home or when you want that long weekend away (or two weeks off). Oh how I love efficient style.
They’re sold out on the Balmain website, but you can get them at Saks below. The perfect gift for you, me, your girlfriend, your wife, your sisters, your momma, your grandmomma, and your favorite auntie.
In the search for comfortable well made masks with filters, I came across HALOmasks. They feature proprietary SETA Nanofilter technology, proven to capture 98.8% of virtually all airborne pathogens and contaminants, including coronavirus.
Since I’m always on the hunt for lightweight, but effective, it’s 95% bamboo and 5% spandex for shape retention and stretch. The other nice part? HALOLIFE gives back to its community. For every purchase made, the company donates a mask to someone in need.
The mask, usually $34.95, is currently on sale for $29.95, as well. Reusable, washable, comfortable, filter-ready, and giving to the community… I call that a win win.
I need juice. Juice for my face, juice for my body, juice for my soul! Come winter, I don’t know about you, but I need nourishment.
Enter: MOON JUICE, THE GLOW UP & ROSE GOLD from one of my favorite proprietors of organic skincare, Herb & Myth. Founded by Sarita Valdes, an ex-ballroom dancer/artist turned herbalist and aesthetician-in-training in Tacoma, Washington, this beauty line is one of the purest, best organic beauty brands on the market. I call it Farm-to-Face as she curates and collects herbs and essential oils from her vast connections at organic farms in the Pacific Northwest. She doesn’t believe in cutting corners, so things like her non-alcohol packed with essential oils organic mouthwash (which I swear by!) may not run cheap, but you’d be hard pressed to find a fresher, better tasting mouthwash on the market. I didn’t even care about mouthwash before trying hers. It wasn’t part of my repertoire. Until now.
Her new serums plan to be my winter salvation alongside my staple organic moisturizer, Skin Food, which works beautifully on my sensitive, sometimes acne prone, skin. Everything is pure glow, pure non-comedogenic, pure Herb and Myth.
As many of you know, the cleaner the beauty, the better my skin. I’m all about finding the most natural (even better *organic*) beauty and travel products or services on the market. I want farm-to-table and farm-to-face, baby!
Since the 1920s, Weleda’s 50 acres of Biodynamic gardens — The Weleda Biodynamic Gardens in Schwabisch Gmund, Germany – are some of the largest in Europe (with additional farms across Europe!). Their farming principles inspire high-quality products and as a recipient of the UEBT certification for “Sourcing with Respect,” this assures consumers that biodiversity is protected along the company’s supply chain.
So, as one of my favorite brands, Weleda, approaches its 100th anniversary, when I read that they’re introducing a new Sheer Hydration facial line I wanted to share. The new products are formulated with Prickly Pear Cactus Extract from the volcanic soils of Mexico and Aloe Leaf Juice (and you know how much we love Mexico). Fast-absorbing, weightless, breathable moisture leaves skin feeling hydrated for up to 24 hours, so check it out!
This lightweight facial lotion is great for all-day hydration. Ingredients include Prickly Pear Cactus Extract, Aloe Leaf Juice, and Witch Hazel Water. This is great for normal to combination skin.
I call this the “spa mist” because it smells like you’re instantly transported to a spa. Instant spa vibes. Instant hydration. Oil-free, this mist is said to boost skin, leaving it soft for up to 12 hours. Perfect for use before and after makeup application. Key ingredients are in line with the other products in this line: Prickly Pear Cactus Extract, Aloe Leaf Juice, and Witch Hazel Water. Works for all skin types!
