Whether you have an office job, work from home, spend your day wrangling animals-- I mean children, odds are you don’t have much time to pamper yourself, let alone take a shower. We’ve all been there; to shave or not to shave, that is the question. However, let’s say you get a moment to apply a mask or take a bath, here are some products you’ll find easy to use, relaxing, and worth taking the time to enjoy.
If maskne (mask-related acne) is a lovely little addition to any skin issues you’ve had prior to the pandemic, you may want to try applying a mask to combat the issues from a mask. Or maybe you just want to treat your skin to a nice deep cleanse or reduce shine. This clay mask by Kiehls is great for removing bacteria, excess oil, and unclogging pores. Thank you Covid, as if you haven’t done enough already, you have also given us the gift of reliving those acne filled teenage years. Free shipping from Neiman Marcus!
Although I’m sure we all love looking old and haggard in our 30’s and 40’s, Hyaluronic Eye Patches can actually help reduce those fine lines that we’ve just learned to embrace. Peter Thomas Roth Gold Eye Patches reduce puffiness, dark circles, and soften wrinkles. These little gems have great reviews!
With Mother’s Day approaching, remind yourself that you are worth a $69 candle (and so much more). Yes, this is a splurge, but not an impulsive one. Jo Malone candles last forever and are incredibly fragrant without being overpowering. Their unique scents, such as Lime Basil and Mandarin, set them apart from your average candle. These candles are simply the best, but if for any reason you experience buyers remorse after this purchase, I recommend stashing it away for the next housewarming party you attend, as they make the most perfect gift for your host. Bonus: when ordering anything from Blue Mercury, you get a choice of 3 free samples with your purchase.
Ok, so you score some time to relax in the bath. First off, good for you. Second, try these bath bombs that create a bubble bath, smell great, leave your skin feeling smooth, and most importantly are safe for sensitive skin.
Oatmeal and honey for those who have eczema prone skin. I’ve used it with my kids who have eczema and no issues.
Variety package for those who want to try different scents and score a better deal.
Seeing as most of us deliberately damage our poor head of hair with some type of heat-producing mechanism, we owe it to the hair we have left to repair it and protect it from future torture. This product does both of these jobs wonderfully. The heat protecting Bumble and Bumble serum-in-creme will make your dry, damaged hair feel so smooth, especially after a blow dry. I personally have tried 756 hair products over the past few years and nothing compares to the silky quality this gives my hair, which has been damaged from years of coloring and straightening.
Molton Brown products smell amazing and last a super long time. You can snag this two piece set normally priced at $64, for $39.99 at Saks Off Fifth!
After Mother’s Day comes Memorial Day, and it wouldn’t be summer without an exorbitant amount of rosé running through our veins now would it? Treat yourself to a bottle, or 6 to score free shipping, of Wolffer Summer in a Bottle Rosé. Enjoy the gorgeous bottle with your girlfriends or consume alone while watching Bravo, either way you’ll be happy to have this fruity winner stocked in your fridge.
Well now you need a wine tumbler for all that vino. Yeti is a well known, reliable brand, and ordering from amazon guarantees a much quicker delivery! No more worries about bringing expensive, breakable wine glasses outside, this wine tumbler is perfect for keeping wine at its optimal temperature (especially a nice crisp glass of rosé).
Three things you shouldn’t live without: 1) The perfect red nail 2) A tinted lip 3) Protection (for your skin that is).
Who doesn’t love a bright red nail for spring and summer? You will fall in love with Essie’s Geranium.
Milk Makeup's lip and cheek color is not only multi-purposeful, but so hydrating. For a more natural, everyday look, try Dusty Rose.
I searched for the link to the fountain of youth, but came up with nada, so linking the next best thing, and one of my personal favorite products, Super Goop. Sunscreen is so important, for obvious reasons, and should be worn everyday. Super Goop is not only a great SPF but also doubles as a makeup primer. It will not leave your face feeling or looking greasy at all!
We all deserve to pamper and treat ourselves and it should be done regularly. These products will hopefully give you a boost in between those rare trips to the spa, or at least keep you buzzed while deciding if you should wash your hair this week.
