I feel like I’m constantly changing up my beauty routine, testing out new products, and falling in love with them. Here are a few of the beauty products I’ve been loving lately:
Invigorate Bath Salts from Hillockburn Farm (c/0) — I met these amazing folks during the Sodo Flea last month and it was basically a love fest right away. I’ve been using their lovely bar soaps for the past few weeks, but my favorite thing is soaking in these salts. They smell incredible and I find that they help to soothe my aching muscles after a hard workout.
S.W. Basics Rosewater Spray (c/o) — quite honestly, this is the best rosewater spray I’ve used. I got sunburnt last week and sprayed this onto my skin and immediately felt less like my skin was burning with the fire of 1,000 suns. I also find that the fragrance of this is the most true to real, live roses… probably because literally the only ingredient is rosewater.
If there is one skincare item that I am totally obsessed with, it would be a good face mask. I looooove pouring a glass of wine, putting on a good mask, and turning on some reality tv. This is basically my way of wind down at the end of a long day. I’ve shared a lot of my favorites on Instagram stories, but wanted to do a more formalized round up.These face masks are ones that I use on a consistent, regular basis for a variety of reasons. Warning, there are a lot listed (I literally have an entire drawer dedicated to masks):
If you watch my Instagram Stories, you know one thing: I’m a closet beauty and skincare addict. Make up doesn’t really excite me, but skincare like serums, milks, masks, and moisturizers are my absolute favorite. I could talk about them all day! Some of you guys have DM-ed me, urging me to share my favorite products and skincare routines here on the blog, so here goes. To kick off my beauty report series, today I’m sharing my morning and evening skincare routine!
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and this year, instead of obsessing over cupid’s arrow, I’m making a special treat for my girlfriends to enjoy. Both Joanna and I have been focusing on taking better care of ourselves, essentially taking time to indulge in all-important self-care. So why not treat your best friend to the gift of self-care for Valentine’s Day? We whipped up a batch of bath salts filled with dried flowers and packaged them in easy dip dyed canvas bags for the perfect heart-felt gift.
For this post, I received products from Hand in Hand. All opinions are my own and always will be! Thanks for supporting content that keeps Jojotastic going.
Every year I struggle to find good stocking stuffer ideas. Even though stocking stuffers are traditionally smaller in scale, I still want them to feel special and unique. More often than not, I navigate toward gifts that are natural and small-batch for this reason. This year I’m filling our stockings with these wintery soaps from Hand in Hand. Not only are they all-natural, but they are fair-trade, cruelty-free, and smell amazing!

If you’ve been watching my Instagram stories lately, you’ll know a little secret about me: I love beauty products and skincare. While I’m not exactly a beauty buff, I do really love testing out new masks, serums, and creams. My best friend is way more of a beauty-holic than I am and frequently educates me about the hottest new beauty trends. I curated this gift guide with her in mind!
This time of year, it’s really important to give yourself plenty of relaxation time (editor’s note: amen!). With the holiday season just around the corner, try to carve out some “you-time” and create a ritual of self-care. For me, that’s a nice hot bath after a chilly fall day. I’ve been really loving all the new fancy bath bombs on the market, but they can get pretty spendy and some are chock-full of artificial coloring and weird ingredients that I don’t want on my skin.
So instead of shelling out for weekly bath bombs, I thought I’d make my own recipe with a few of my favorite fall scents, like spruce and lavandin with a hint of orange. It has a sparkling orange color that’s completely organic from the Alaea Hawaiian Sea Salt, a natural detoxifying clay mixture. These are a perfect handmade gift for anyone who needs a little extra relation in their life or a fun project to treat yo’ self.
