10 Wellness Essentials You Probably Never Knew You Needed

I’ve written about Wellness Tribe before. It’s a subscription box that curates a variety of healthy products, including snacks and fitness-related items. Founder and Eastern medicine physician, Taylor J. Winn, picks all the products herself, and given that it has now been a few months since the company’s launch, I thought I’d reach out to her and get the lowdown on the 10 products she thinks everyone looking to lead a more healthy life should own. It can be hard to cut through the clutter, even for someone who is wellness-obsessed, and it’s annoying to waste time and money on things that don’t work (or worse, leave you with extra weight and fat because you think you’re eating something healthy when it’s actually anything but!). With all that said, here’s a look at Winn’s picks…

Here's Why Bathing in Chocolate Might Be Just As Good As Eating It

Here’s Why Bathing in Chocolate Might Be Just As Good As Eating It

Bathing and eating chocolate both sound pretty fabulously indulgent (and I hate the word fabulous!). As I write this, I’m munching on some brandy-infused chocolates I bought at Demel while in Vienna. You have to pop each chocolate whole into your mouth or risk some liquid dribble. Needless to say, it’s making it a bit easier to deal with my 4 p.m. slump.

Full-Bodied Skin Care: Splurge vs. Save

Anti-aging shouldn’t stop at the neck. In fact, hands are one of the easiest places to spot someone’s age; they’re rarely cared for as well as the face is, and the rest of the body often ends up equally overlooked. If you really want to stay soft skinned, you must pamper yourself from head to toe…

Frugal Friday: Epsoak Epsom Salt

With all the luxe salts I buy, my love of baths has recently been turning into a financial liability. Before someone decided to stage an intervention, I took matters into my own hands and tried the DIY route. It doesn’t require a chemistry degree or anything too complicated – just your sense of smell!

Farmhouse Fresh Sweet Cream Body Milk Lotion

Farmhouse Fresh Sweet Cream Body Milk Lotion: WARNING – Do Not Eat

Packaging isn’t everything in the beauty world, but when a sumptuous product finds its way into equally delectable packaging, the must-have effect goes through the roof. That’s how I feel about everything from Texas-based Farmhouse Fresh beauty, especially their Sweet Cream body milk lotion.

Frugal Snob: Kneipp Bath Benefit Kit

I’ve grown up using Kneipp. It’s widely available in Germany where my family is from so when I started seeing it here a few years ago it brought back all kinds of memories. They make great pampering products, and they’re guilt-free because they’re fairly inexpensive – spas are great, but really at times all we need is a nice long shower or bath to feel rejuvenated!

From the rejuvenating face and body bars to the moisturizing antioxidant milk bars, every last one of Jabonería Marianella’s natural soaps smells wonderfully fragrant and feels just as divine. As a mom, I love that it’s a mother-son operation!

Frugal Snob: Salma Hayek’s Nuance

I’m a huge fan of Salma Hayek because of her entrepreneurial ventures. She’s the woman behind Cooler Cleanse and in 2011 she launched a range of beauty, hair, and skin products called Nuance, sold exclusively at CVS. I was sent a few skin product to try out and was impressed at how light and clean the scents were.

Kai Body Buffer: One for the Record Books

My showers clock in at record time. I can shampoo and condition my hair, wash my body, and clean my face in two minutes flat, but I’m always looking for ways to beat my own time. Just as Olympic runners cut down on their records with the help of the best gear, so I will … Continue reading Kai Body Buffer: One for the Record Books
