Good morning, friends! Over the past few (hundred) weeks of quarantine and our current halfway-out-of-quarantine situation, I’ve been trying out alllll of the beauty things that I’ve been meaning to get to for months. While makeup has been admittedly minimal, I’m clearing out the beauty drawers and slathering on all the lotions and potions and trying out this and that. I discovered that I’m actually REALLY into a daily body oil, found a new favorite holy grail fragrance, and tossed out all of my outdated nail colors to make room for new. So today I’m sharing a couple of new additions to my morning routine.
Dermalogica phyto replenish body oil – I’ve never really been into body oils, but this one completely changed my mind. I started using it after pool days in Palm Springs but quickly added it to my everyday morning routine. It smells amazing, is so moisturizing, and absorbs quickly with no greasy residue.
Le Labo Santal 33 body oil – I recently found and tried a tiny little sample of Le Labo’s Santal 33 fragrance and was instantly hooked, but holy moly the perfume is pricey. I decided to try out the body oil instead since, you know, I’m a body oil believer now. It’s less than a third of the price of the perfume, and while the body oil is still a splurge, a little bit will last all day long. (And most days, I use it in addition to the Dermalogica oil.)
Mented “Yes We Tan” polish – I’m always on the hunt for new nude polishes that I like, so when I discovered this brand last week, I had to give it a shot. I ordered the pretty “Yes We Tan” shade, and lucky for me, it arrived just in time for my very first post-quarantine mani/pedi. (YES – I found a salon here that is open for business right now, and it’s one of my local favorites.) I’ve already done the at-home “paint one hand, only the left hand” test, and the color is so pretty.
Ankole Living accessories – Lastly, how pretty are these Ankole Living vanity accessories? I’ve been a fan of the brand since snagging this woven clutch a couple of summers ago and love that everything they make is ethically-sourced and just so unique. I’m loving these little accent pieces and currently have my eye on a stack of these lightweight bangles for summer.
