Lately, I’ve been on a quest to find a beauty regime that’s good for both my skin and the environment. After hunting around for eco-friendly products that actually work, I found TAY’s Safflower Seed Night Cream. Not only does this all-natural formula smell amazing, it’s also laced with a hero ingredient everyone at Birchbox has been praising: jojoba oil. This natural ingredient is one of the most powerful out there, which is why it pops up in everything from leave-in detanglers to stretch mark creams. But my favorite way to use it is as an overnight moisturizer, since skin does the bulk of its repair work in the wee hours. Learn more about jojoba oil after the jump!
Since we just introduced you to Deena, our VP of Marketing, we thought it was only fitting that we share her desk with you as well. She’s definitely on the “neat and organized” end of the spectrum but still has lots of fun goodies, including the cutest picture ever of her kids and quite a collection of polishes. Even though she’s prepping for a big presentation tomorrow, we got her to give us the lowdown on her essentials.
- Presentation: I’ve been working on this for tomorrow’s SMASH summit, a startup marketing conference where I’ll be sharing some of Birchbox’s learnings about user generated content. Still cramming to prepare my talking points…
- Calculator: I’m constantly using this to run the numbers on subscribers!
- Product collection: These are the products I’m trying right now. Nail polish galore by Deborah Lippmann and Zoya. Plus, I’m looking for some new skincare products and the Tay Night Cream and June Jacobs Skin Amour Day Shield were highly recommended by some of our resident experts.
- My wall of inspiration: This is a work in progress but I need to see things I love while I work—note the photo of my beautiful kids is front and center! Right next to them is a pic of their awesome dad, and the wrapper from the most delicious vegan chocolate I’ve ever tasted. It’s called NibMor and I need to find a new place to get it — the cafe where I found it no longer carries it!
