Happy Wednesday! Sharing an updated self-care roundup today with some favorites to unwind and relax at the end of the day. I’m still in that new year reset and refresh mindset. It’s super dry this time of year and my lips and hands definitely feel it! Here are some things I’ve been loving lately from Nordstrom for my nightly beauty ritual.
I just restocked one of my favorite body washes which is the Aesop Geranium Leaf Body Cleanser. It’s been a staple for as long as I can remember. It’s a citrus mix of mandarin rind, bergamot and geranium leaf – all of my favorites. Definitely unisex (Andrew loves it too).
The Aesop Geranium Leaf Body Scrub is also great but right now I’m loving the Kate Somerville Exfolikate Body Scrub. It’s a great one to smooth and brighten the skin. Helps get rid of dead skin and even though it has a mix of physical and chemical exfoliants it doesn’t dry out the skin. I use it 1-2x per week.
For the ultimate relaxing scent I think the Jo Malone Lime Basil & Mandarin Candle is one of the best to create an at-home spa like vibe. It’s one of the most potent candle scents I’ve ever burned. I also love the Lime Basil & Mandarin Room Spray which is really nice to layer with the candle.
For lip balms I have three go-to’s right now for clear lip treatments. I keep these in my nightstand and apply right before I go to sleep. The Too Faced Hangover Pillow Balm comes in a clear version and tinted options. It really does feel like a pillow cushion for the lips.
If you are willing to splurge the La Mer Lip Volumizer or U Beauty Lip Plasma are also excellent. The La Mer is formulated to be a lip plumper but I use it as a regular balm. Both are smooth and non-sticky.
For the skin I did a skincare roundup last week if you want some more details on my routine. I really love the La Mer Cleansing Foam for a cleanser that leaves the skin squeaky clean but still well hydrated. A number of you asked for recommendations on the best face scrub and the best gentle option I’ve tried is the Fresh Sugar Face Polish. It has a hydrating finish and the scrub particles melt into the skin as you massage it.
The best lightweight face mist I’ve tried is the Sisley Floral Spray Mist. Quite the splurge but there’s really nothing like it that has that superfine mist dispenser and lightweigh refreshing feel. I also love the La Mer Facial Mist Spray and everything from Omorovicza too.
Last but not least I have to give another shout out for the Jo Malone Vitamin E Hand Lotion and Necessaire Body Oil. This dry season has taken its toll on my skin. Both of these have been in heavy rotation and I would call these must-haves for dry skin savers.
You can find all of these at Nordstrom. Let me know what your favorite self-care items are! I’m currently looking for a new face oil to try – let me know if you have a favorite!
