Best Beauty Bits

Like many folks, I didn’t sleep much last night awaiting election results and I look a bit worse for wear. Here are four beauty items that make my morning routine a whole lot easier. The Christophe Robin Shampoo Bar was just for traveling, but now I use it once a week for shine. The Yves Durif Vented Hairbrush takes minutes off drying my hair, and the Aerin Lip Conditioner and Goopgenes Body Butter are dry skin saviors.

  • Agree about that brush…best I ever had! And…I have been using Christophe Robin Cleansing Hair Mask with Lemon once a week (alternating with Olaplex). I have long, thick, tangle-prone hair…when I use it, no conditioner is needed. Love the stuff!

  • Thank you for posting these. Little comforts to help us get through an anxiety-riddled week…. even beyond my own political beliefs— the anxiety of a whole nation is palpable. We are so divided… that’s what’s most troubling of all. Reminds me of To Kill A Mockingbird. “If there’s just one kind of folks, why can’t they get along with each other? If they’re all alike, why do they go out of their way to despise each other? Scout, I think I’m beginning to understand something. I think I’m beginning to understand why Boo Radley’s stayed shut up in the house all this time… it’s because he wants to stay inside.”

  • I love that Aerin Lip conditioner. It smells so good. And Goop is always wonderful to me!

  • I’ve been considering getting a shampoo soap bar for travel. Thanks for the recommendation. Easy to rinse out?

  • Yes, very.

  • I love my Mason Pearson brush but will give this brush a try since it helps with drying time. Thank you for recommending

  • Goop Body Butter is amazing. I was using Agent Nateur Oil+ a lotion. Now I only have to use one product. it really works!

  • Holy Smokes! Did I need to see this?! I am onto all four of them to change up my routine! I doubt anything is going to help me out today, or this week, as stated above, and also agree that we are in such sad shape. I am anxiously awaiting a refreshed country. Thank you Preston!

  • I have been using the same hair brush for over a decade and I think it’s time for an upgrade. This one looks incredible, thank you for sharing. I still use my Henne Lip Balm thanks to your recommendation almost a year ago. I am (not so) patiently awaiting my SkinCeuticals order to be delivered, but will check out Goop in the future. x
