Plant Apothecary Set of 5 Travel-Size Body Washes
This nifty set features a travel-size body wash to suit every mood, whether you need a little morning pick-me-up with Wakey Wakey (with scents of rosemary and lemongrass), or a little soul nurturing with Calm Down (a delicious mix of ginger and lavender).

Foreo Luna 3
You’d be forgiven for falling asleep while you wash your face with this innovative tool… the sonic vibrations are just that soothing and calming! But more than that, they help lift away dirt and oil while they massage your face into a firmer, smoother, younger-looking version of yourself. You can even select one that suits your specific skin needs, from Normal to Combination to Sensitive skin.
Lord Jones High CBD Formula Bath Salts
There’s no other way to put it—bathing in these salts is an otherworldly experience. You may not think that a tablespoon-sized scoop of these bath salts will do you any good, but you’d be wrong. Run your tub, drop it in, and watch your cares and stresses melt away.
Rough Draft Large Notebook
Maybe you need a place to write out your ideas, record your dreams, or just make notes of the plans that flit through your brain when you’re trying to drift off to sleep. This notebook will handle all of that and then some, thanks to 160 lined wood-free pages encased in a thick cover that offers a message of hope.
There’s so much to love about Otherland candles, and to be honest, we’re obsessed. Their current collection, The Carefree 90s Collection was created to transport people back to simpler times by recalling scents that defined the decade. Our favorite? Glosspop, which smells like candy, possibly from the Jolly Rancher family, maybe even a Lifesaver of some kind, with a hint of Lip Smacker for good measure. Be warned: you will want to eat this candle. (Please don’t eat this candle.)
This isn’t the kind of weighted blanket you’re used to! Hand-knit using silky-soft organic fabric with a cozy feel, you can choose the weight you want that best suits your needs, then snuggle up under this chunky cocoon of delight and binge-watch to your heart’s content. Warning: you may never want to leave your couch (or bed) ever again, but if you do, The Napper will look stylish wherever you leave it. (Confession time: we LOVE this blanket. Love it.)
100% Pure Green Tea Water Bomb Mask
There’s so many good things to tell you about this mask that we don’t know where to start! For one, it’s incredibly hydrating, relying on cucumber and hyaluronic acid to nourish dry and dehydrated skin. For two, this hydrogel mask is made of 95% organic aloe juice and 5% plant cellulose. And three, the longer you leave it on, the more your skin benefits! We recommend leaving it on for an hour, if you can make the time. Your skin will thank you.
Aromatherapy Associates Deep Relax Rollerball
Give yourself a little slice of calm wherever you need it with this aromatherapy rollerball, featuring a soothing blend of vetiver, chamomile and sandalwood. Keep it next to your bed if you suffer from insomnia, or take it with you when you’re on the run. Just roll it on your pulse points when you need some extra support to get through your day, or bring some calm to your night.
This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray
Speaking of aromatherapy, this pillow spray works wonders. Just spray it on your pillow before you slide into bed to catch some zzzzz’s, and let the blend of lavender, vetiver and chamomile zap your anxiety, calm your mind, and help improve the overall quality of your sleep.
Vitruvi Stone Diffuser
Don’t just stop at candles, rollerballs and pillow sprays—turn your entire home into a scentsational experience whenever you want. This hand-crafted ceramic diffuser will distribute 10 to 20 drops of essential oil for three continuous hours, or seven hours using interval settings. It also has an optional lighting feature, and it’s easy to clean with a BPA-free plastic water reservoir.

Don’t leave the luxe robes for spa days—make every day a spa day with this plush microfiber robe with a soft exterior and a cushy inner lining that’ll keep you cozy when you’re doing your self-care rituals. It’s also full coverage, easy to wash, and features two generous pockets so you can carry your phone around with you if you really must. And on that note…
Pinch Provisions Digital Detox Kit
Put your phone down. No, for real—put your phone down! And if you really can’t (or don’t know how), this Digital Detox Kit can help you power down without withdrawal. There’s eight essentials to help you take a break, including a mini alarm clock so you can time your break, an eye mask and ear plugs to block everything out, an infinity fidget cube to keep you occupied, and more.
Esarora Ice Roller for Face & Eyes
Reduce puffiness, shrink pores and calm your skin with this nifty little face roller, which you can pop in the fridge or freezer to cool it down to your liking. You can even use it to massage your face while you’re masking, and roll it over your temples to relieve fatigue. And imagine how good it would feel on a sunburn after too much time outside in the summer. Teddi Mellencamp highly recommends it!
Sachajuan Protective Hair Perfume
Yes, you’re reading this right: we’re recommending hair perfume. But hear us out, because this one’s actually special. It moisturizes, reduces static, imparts shine, and provides UV-protection while instantly refreshing strands with a unique anti-odor technology… but it also smells lovely enough to wear as perfume.
Dr. Loretta Urban Antioxidant Sunscreen SPF 40
You should be wearing some manner of cream with SPF anyway, because as you know, it’s important to protect your skin from UVA and UVB rays. But this sunscreen also protects skin from HEV light emitted from electronic devices like phone screens and computers. So put some on and protect yourself from pollution, light, climate and irritants.
Tower 28 SOS Daily Rescue Facial Spray
This face spray is really something special. Not only is it refreshing, but its ingredients include hypochlorous acid, which is naturally found in your white blood cells and helps to fight and defend your body from harmful bacteria and inflammation. So when you spray this on, HOCl triggers an immune boost, which signals your body to repair and heal irritated skin. Magic!
Fur Moisturizing Shave Cream
If you haven’t gotten to know Fur, you should. They have an amazing line of goodies dedicated to taking care of… well, your fur! This shave cream is no exception. Whipped and featherlight, it helps your razor glide across your skin without leaving razor burn, irritation and bumps, and even helps with ingrowns. Plus, it smells delightful.
The Spacer Bra
If you’re WFH and want to give the girls some support, but you’re not in the mood to strap yourself into a bra, this is the answer to your prayers. This bra is made of specialized spacer material (not normal foam!) that molds to your body and feels, well, like you’re not wearing one.
Mineral Fusion Moondust Nail Polish
Make your mani clean and green with nail polish that’s 100% vegan and free of toluene, camphor, DBP and formaldehyde. Not only is it healthier and formulated with natural minerals, but it’s long-lasting and chip resistant. We love this ethereal shade for an alternative to typical nudes and neutrals.
BeautyBio Contouring + De-Puffing Rose Quartz Roller
If you haven’t jumped on the facial roller bandwagon yet, now is the time, and this is the facial roller. Made of 100% solid Brazilian rose quartz this dual-ended roller supports lymphatic drainage and helps to contour and de-puff. It can also help improve the appearance of pores. Plus, facial rollers just feel amazing on tense jaws and foreheads, especially when you pop them in the fridge before using.
Moroccanoil Color Depositing Mask
If you’re bored of your color, or you just can’t make it out to your stylist, why not switch things up a little with this Color Depositing Mask? It nourishes your hair like a deep conditioning mask, but also gives you the benefits of temporary color once you rinse it out. Available in seven colors, you can either enhance your natural hue, or take it in a different direction for a little while with a fun and splashy color. (We like the Rose Gold.)
Vagus Nerve Oil
Did you know the vagus nerve is the longest cranial nerve in the body, reaching from your brain to your gut? This inventive oil is meant to work with the vagus nerve, which activates the body’s relaxation response and helps regulate stress. Just rub some of this amazing oil in the palms of your hands, rub it down either side of your neck, and then follow along with the helpful step-by-step guide to help your vagus nerve do its duty. Ahh… bliss.
Prism 20% AHA + 5% BHA Exfoliating Glow Facial

It’s a jelly-textured dream treatment that uses 20% fruit-based AHA’s and 5% Willow Bark-based BHA clarify skin and reduce dark spots and uneven texture. Plus, $1 from every Prism purchase throughout 2020 goes to The Trevor Project.
The Harmonist Yin Transformation Perfume
When was the last time you treated yourself to some nice perfume? Well be forewarned: The Harmonist will forever ruin you for all other scents. Using ingredients that are 85% carbon renewable, more than 89% biodegradable and ethically sourced, The Harmonist’s perfumes are each their own scent journey, calling on the elements to inform their path, with every one telling its own unique story. We love this Yin Transformation scent, melding Calypso Orchid and Bulgarian Rose with Almond Milk, Ylang Ylang, Sandalwood, White Musk and more. Explaining it just doesn’t do it justice. You have to experience it.
Get ready to transform your face. The Ziip is an incredible little handheld electrical skincare device that uses energetic vibrations and pushes them into the skin through positive-and negatively-charged discs. The result? Younger-looking skin, reduced signs of aging (but for real), and even decreased acne and pigmentation, if you use the corresponding treatments on the Ziip app. And though it comes with it fan favorite Golden Conductive Gel, those who wish for a vegan option with organic ingredients can now opt for the Crystal Gel. You may break up with your facialist over this one, ’cause it really does do what it says it does. Trust us: it’s a game changer, and worth every penny.
