So often women will come in to the shop and ask me what I use on my face or my hair, or what products I like the best. I really do love and use everything that I carry in the shop, but these are a few of my favorites.
Here are the ten essentials that I can't go a day without. And every single one of them is made in small batches by women run independent companies. How cool is that? Treat yourself to a few of these items, and I promise you will be hooked!
1. Mermaid Dry Shampoo from Captain Blankenship. A lifesaver. Adds tons of volume to hair while absorbing oil and lets you go longer between washes, which is ultimately much better for your hair.
2. Sweet Botany Face Cream. A rich and nourishing lavender and rosewood face cream with organic rejuvenating oils. Even great for sensitive skin and for sunburn.
3. Sweet Botany Face Oil. Golden liquid organic food for your face. Mood lifting and anti aging.
4. Sweet Botany Sweet Water. A refreshing mist with holy basil and linden blossom. Smells fantastic. Great as a pick me up refresher and perfect as a toner for under moisturizer and make up.
5. Goldies Amber and Coconut leave-In Conditioner. A great detangler, but also great for adding volume and beachy texture to hair, like after a day at the beach. Smells heavenly.
6. Olio E Osso No1 Balm. A super versatile balm. Great as a lip conditioner or for any dry skin patches, flyaway hair, cuticles and grooming eyebrows and beards. I keep mine next to my bed and use it on my lips religiously every night before I go to sleep.
7. Lake and Sky 11 11 Fragrance. Simple, fresh and clean subtle musky scent. A great light unisex summer fragrance.
8. Olio E Osso Tinted Balm. Lovely tinted balm for lips and cheeks. Super nourishing. Perfect touch of sheer color.
9. Apotheke Shea Butter Hand Cream. Perfect hand moisturizer that doesn't make your hands feel greasy. This is always in my bag.
10. Riddle Oil Original Scent. A clean subtle light musky amber oil. It is a pheromone scent that smells different on everyone. Intoxicating and super sexy!
