Herbivore Botanicals | After Sun Soothing Aloe Spray $20

Herbivore Botanicals | Sea Mist Texturizing Salt Spray / Coconut $20 

Can’t get to the beach? Try this spray that’s formulated with the same salinity as Pacific Ocean saltwater. It’s great for adding beachy texture and waves to hair naturally. The essential oils of coconut and vanilla give off an exotic aroma. It smells amazing, seriously.

Penchant Bare | Red Bump and Ingrown Hair Serum $17.95

Penchant Bare is a botanically-enriched skin serum that reduces red bumps and ingrown hairs.  Using Penchant Bare is the trick to getting smooth, irritation-free skin after waxing and shaving, and I believe it is a perfect fit for an upcoming summer wellness article.

Formulated with aloe, witch hazel, and sage, our formula is an effective, natural alternative to harsh alcohol-based formulas. It’s packaged in a rollerball design, so when you apply it there’s no waste and no mess. Using Penchant Bare helps eliminate red bumps, razor burn, ingrown hairs, and irritation that come from hair removal, giving you summer-ready skin and the confidence to go bare.

You can also get it on Amazon here.


Anew Wines | Rose $12 

Perfect to include in your picnic basket or bring to a BBQ. A crisp, vibrant and dry style Rosé, made with a blend of Syrah and Sangiovese. It showcases the beautiful aromas of strawberry, fresh watermelon and peach.

Buy it at BevMo, Cost Plus World Market, Total Wine & More, Bartell Drugs, or online here.
