Friend Finds: Better than new shoes (almost)


Last month I spent a few days at my friend Kristen’s house in New York and found three new products in her bathroom to rave about.

Finding products in bathroom cabinets and makeup bags of my friends is kind of like going on a mini shopping spree, only better because I can actually test everything for the duration of my stay. (My sister’s bathroom is the best place to “shop” for beauty products because the products I fall in love with are mostly products she originally snagged from my house. It’s like being reunited with long-lost friends.)

At Kristen’s house, I obsessed over these three products:

  1. Sonya Dakar Nourishing Body Oil, a super moisture-sealing body oil that is paraben-free with no dyes or fragrances. I couldn’t wait to shower each morning knowing I’d be slathering my skin in this silky, non-greasy body oil.
  2. Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant, a rice-based enzyme powder that’s added to your daily moisturizer to brighten and exfoliate skin in the gentlest way.
  3. Revive Moisturizing Renewal Cream, a rich night cream with EGF (Epidural Growth Factor) and glycolic acid to increase cell renewal and improve skin’s clarity.

Thankfully my airline-approved ziplock was already at max-capacity otherwise I might have been tempted to throw these products in my luggage!
