4 Easy Switches That Turned My Shower Into A SanctuaryHint: it's all about aromatherapy.
Having spent most of 2020 indoors and at home, you quickly learn how to turn your place into whatever setting it needs to be. From your personal gym, to your office, and even your own spa, we've never gotten so much of our money's worth from our rent (or mortgage) as we have during this year's pandemic. My favorite room that I upgraded was the bathroom, particularly my shower. I am a frequent spa-goer (er, was?) so when recreating the sanctuary that is a spa to my shower, there was one theme that reigned supreme: AROMATHERAPY! See what simple switches I made to make my shower the place of solace that it now is. 1. Hanging Eucalyptus in My ShowerThis simple addition to my shower really changed the game for me. From the way it looks to the scent it releases, eucalyptus leaves are the cornerstone of in-shower relaxation! Plus, it's super affordable. At just $3-5 a bunch, depending where you get them, you can easily elevate your shower experience. 2. A Filtered Showerhead for Softer Skin and HairT3's showerhead was a purchase decision I took quite some time to make. It's pricey, first of all, at $150. What convinced me to get it was when I moved from my old apartment to my current one, I noticed how much calcified water was in my showerhead that I had only been using for a year. I was surprised at how much build up there was from just one year of use, and the thought of all those hard minerals irritating my skin (I have eczema, atopic dermatitis, and acne-prone skin, so no detail goes unlooked!) was enough to take the $150 plunge. And it was an amazing decision. The water filtered through T3's showerhead is exceptionally soft and even tastes better. I've seen my skin, scalp, and face see improvements and less inflammation. So worth it! 3. An Aromatherapeutic exfoliating scrub that decongests your skin and noseLinne's Activate Body Wash feels so luxurious and therapeutic. From the granular texture that softens your skin to the incredible scent of eucalyptus (you already know!) that fills your senses and decongests your nose, the minute you open up this bottle of body wash you will instantly feel *~serenity~*. 4. A super soft body wash that smells like the forest at dawnFor the non-exfoliation days, I opt for a body wash that has a light, floral scent. I love Bathing Culture's Mind and Body wash. The scent has notes of oak moss, redwood, and sea fog—basically, imagine standing in a clearing of a forest at the crack of dawn, surrounded by flowers with the sound of a running creek in the distance. It's calming and one inhale instantly releases any stress you may be carrying.

BATHING CULTUREMind and Body Wash5. A deep conditioning hair mask with a marshmallow scent that lingers What is it about a hair mask that just feels like self-care? Playa's Healing Hair Masque smells so beautiful that I'm convinced it's healing more than just my dry hair. To me, this mask has a marshmellow-y scent and leaves me hair just as soft. Amla oil and kaolin clay are the main players in this mask; the former nourishes your scalp and strands while the latter decongests and balances. Applying this all over my scalp and hair, the sweet aroma instantly fills my senses and gives off healing vibes. Then, when all is said, done, and dry, my hair STILL smells so sweet.

Clear skin the gentle way?
Thank you @cheriefor this amazing gift 🤩 “buh-koo-chee-all” HERBIVORE - Bakuchiol Anti-Aging Serum I’ve already become a diehard Herbivore lover. So to receive this beauty was super exciting. When I started my acne journey on Cherie I was (and still am) a Differin Acne Gel stan. This was my choice of retinol and I wanted it strong to treat acne and boost my cellular turnover. Now that my acne is currently under control and it’s getting hot again, I definitely want something smooth and gentle. Bakuchiol is a gentler alternative to the very popular ingredient retinol. So essentially you’ll get overall youthful results for your skin. I haven’t tested this on my acne theory yet, but overall my face has been smooth and irritation free. This serum does not have a smell which I love for products of this caliber. I also love that it’s light and not drying at all. I use this at night and since i have a tolerance to retinol I use it every night. I haven’t been using it long enough to see results (about 12 weeks) but I definitely can’t wait to finish this. Have you tried Bakuchiol?
Do It All Toner 🍃🍃
I have been loving the brand Truly lately ✨ I recently purchased this: 🍃TRULY - CBD Jelly Toning Solution 🍃 And it’s by far one of my favorite toners. Ingredients: 💚100MG CBD 💚Glycolic Acid 💚Tea Tree Oil 💚Organic Aloe 💚Rose Petal Extract This brand is also: 💚Vegan 💚Cruelty Free 💚Clean I use this every other night and it as tremendously helped my skin barrier and acne. I was really concerned about the glycolic acid irritating or drying my skin but it didn’t at all 🤩 I highly recommend this to combo and oily , acne prone skin. This will be a toner I keep in my night routine. I got it from Ulta (of course) for $24 (I paid $15 after coupons) Do you use CBD products? 🍃
