A worldwide pandemic, non-stop working from home and social distancing have us all feeling on-edge, tired and honestly just down. This month, we hope to bring some beauty and joy to all of you with some of our favorite and new products on the market. Stay strong, we’re all in this together!


This month is all about new starts and fresh beginnings. Where we were a year ago to where we are today is like night and day. All your hard work over the past few weeks have put you in a good place at work. Take some time this month to enjoy the nice weather and soak up the fruits of your success.

Stretching yourself too much will dilute the quality of your work. Remember it’s always quality over quantity. Your hard work and dedication to a few projects you know you can perfect will speak volumes when it comes time for review. Tap into your strengths and go from there.

With warmer weather making you more likely to spend time outside, make sure you’re taking the right precautions in protecting your skin. Rather than finding a product to do it all, layer multiple products that do each of their jobs flawlessly. Supergoop!’s Mineral Sheerscreen SPF 30 PA+++ is a great way to protect your complexion without feeling heavy or greasy. Apply after moisturizer and before makeup or go bare-faced and flaunt your natural beauty.

Tax season is upon us and there is no better time than the present to review your finances.

Go into any high-end department store and a lot of times you’ll feel that beauty and budget aren’t words you find together. It’s easy to think that clear flawless skin requires a lot of money signs and trips to a derm-spa. Peace Out’s new Cleansing Blemish Balm is a must have for keeping skin clear and breakouts at bay. This unique exfoliating balm is packed with salicylic acid but is still gentle enough to be used twice daily. Simply massage balm into skin to remove dirt, oil and pollutant filled build-up!

We could all use a little mental health pick-me-up these days.
