From High Falls Hemp, this CBD-infused lip balm is creamy but never feels tacky, sticky or greasy.

The rich formula also helps to reduce inflammation in damaged lips.
From Emma Lewisham, this lush Supernatural Triple Vitamin A+ Face Oil can make a big difference with only a few drops, three times per week. 100% natural, this formula includes three concentrated sources of vitamin A, as well as vitamins B, C and E, antioxidants, amino acids, fatty acids, lipids and omegas. Together they work to hydrate, promote collagen-production (as well as inhibit enzymes that deteriorate collagen) and improve skin’s elasticity and firmness. The formula is clean, and the brand also aims to provide their range of products via a transparent, efficient supply chain that reduces waste and energy.
Winter weather can wreak havoc on your scalp (in turn, your hair) but VENN’s Synbiotic Polyamine Shampoo is like nothing else we have used. The brand’s proprietary combination of probiotics (Aspergillus Ferment, Bacillus Ferment, Saccharomyces Ferment and Lactobacillus Ferment) and prebiotic (Levan) helps to restore the scalp’s microbiome as well as nourish and protect the skin and hair. With a faint eucalyptus scent, it lathers up nicely, but doesn’t leave hair feeling stripped. Especially useful for those with fine or weak, damaged hair and individuals who are seeing more hair loss due to weather and stress, this shampoo is effective but gentle.
Fragrant without becoming overwhelmingly so, Herbivore’s Coconut Milk Body Polish smells light and sweet thanks to its many real coconut-derived ingredients. With certified-organic coconut oil, as well as coconut extract and powder, the scrub provides plenty of nourishment while it exfoliates. Super-effective, the exfoliating sugar should only be used on the body (it’s not for faces) and a little goes a long way. With no synthetic ingredients—from dyes to preservatives and fragrances—this scrub leaves skin feeling moisturized and fresh, with a faint, lingering coconut and vanilla scent.
Colorado-based Veritas Farms’ CBD lip balm provides soothing short-term treatment that won’t dry your lips in the long-term.

What you will notice is the tropical flavor; the orange cream balm is akin to a frozen sherbet push-pop.

From Third Drawer Down comes a silk eye mask that features a portrait (albeit just the eyes) of brilliant and beloved French-American artist Louise Bourgeois. Best known for her striking large-scale sculptures and installations, Bourgeois suffered from insomnia, and said being asleep was “paradise.” With a striped border (and underside, in case you want a change), the mask’s elastic strap features the phrase “Key to insomnia: peace or trust,” which Bourgeois wrote on the back of one of her Insomnia Drawings—a collection of sketches that she created during her frequent bouts with the sleep disorder.

Formulated in the US, Hawthorne’s Brightening Under Eye Corrector incorporates caffeine, cucumber and vitamin C (as well as other high-quality ingredients) to cool and de-puff bags under eyes. Though the brand is best utilized when taking their personalization quiz (so they can ascertain your specific needs), we have found this product to be very effective with daily use. Two other under-eye products can be found in the brand’s roster.
