Being from the Midwest and not getting a ton of sunlight, my skin tends to look dull on a regular basis. This Vitamin C serum is a lifesaver for bringing some brightness back to my skin.

Milk Sunshine Skin Tint SPF 30
The Sunshine Skin Tint from Milk is one of my current must-haves and I know it will only grow in importance in the coming months. The coverage is glossy and beautiful and bonus: SPF 30 in every bottle. As a brand, Milk is doing a ton in the sustainability space. In 2020, they launched a new in-store product display system that utilizes 63% and they continue to launch and relaunch products with refillable cartridges! Crazy enough, there’s more, but we’ll let you read the rest for yourself.

Dieux Forever Eye Mask
The best thing about these eye masks is that I can choose what product I want to utilize by the day. Some days my eyes are puffy, some days they are dry. Whatever the situation, this reusable eye mask allows me to change it up as often as I want! Forever is not a joke. This eye mask is made of silicone and can be washed and reused on a daily basis. The logo has been said to stay on the eye mask for an entire year!

Elate Cosmetics Create a Capsule
You’ve heard of a capsule wardrobe, but what about capsule beauty? Elate is setting the standard when it comes to minimizing waste with its offer to build a cosmetic capsule that allows consumers to pick refills that fit into designated compartments, rather than continuously buying a new packaged product each time.
I highly suggest creating a capsule of your own design!
Everist Waterless Shampoo Concentrate
This shampoo concentrate is activated once added to water, which eliminates the typical addition of water that sits in most bottles of shampoo. The tube itself is made from aluminum, which is much easier to recycle than plastic and the tube key is made from zero-waste material. It’s a win-win.
