5. STRANGE LOVE
Sexy chocs that make a great gift … and an even better personal indulgence. We don’t judge. A truffly mix of Matcha Latte Eyes for energy and Schisandra Dark Chocolate Lips to help calm and de-stress, they’re vegan, refined sugar and dairy free … so 100% guilt-free.
A classy addition to even the most bougie of bathrooms, Salt + Stone’s bergamot and eucalyptus body wash is a powerful yet gentle hydrating gel cleanser. Infused with antioxidant-rich botanical extracts and niacinamide, it leaves skin clean with a silky-smooth finish without dehydrating it.
The sultriest of all candles, Fvith’s Black Rose manages to be both powerfully masculine and deeply feminine at the same time. Symbolizing death, rebirth, and anarchy, its fragrance starts with damascena, which blends with sandalwood and agarwood to deliver a deliciously intoxicating scent.
Eau My Soul is the fragrance equivalent of a socially distanced group hug – the result of a vote from perfume fans for their favorite notes. The result combines sandalwood, amber, frankincense, rose, honey, musk, bergamot, vanilla, vetiver, patchouli, jasmine, lavender, cognac, tobacco, and oakmoss. It might sound a lot, but 4160 Tuesdays has managed to combine it all into a deep smooth blend of togetherness.
Seriously, the Arris is the only tote you’ll need. Strong enough to carry your groceries from Trader Joe’s, it’ll double up as a picnic/beach bag. Made from a crisp, water-resistant, quilted nylon, it holds firm, but folds easily. Plus there are two sizable inside pockets for bottles etc, and a water-resistant interior zipper pouch. Genius.
