Important Trends

Delivering the Best News to you!

If nothing else, the events of the past year have invigorated a mantra that I have long tried to live by: find joy in the everyday. Yes, as ridiculous as it sounds, even in personal-care products. While the bog-standard Colgate and Sures of the world have their place, every so often it’s nice to up the ante. Aesop’s luxe take on mouthwash is aesthetically pleasing but, more crucially, the alcohol-free minty-meets-herbal concoction freshens breath without upsetting your mouth’s pH balance. We all want things that are pleasing to the eye, but we also want them to work. All these products sacrifice neither. Dr Bronner has taken toothpaste down the nostalgic and organic route to give us a low-foaming vegan-friendly formula that helps – in conjunction with flossing (I’m a huge fan of Cocofloss) – to reduce plaque and whiten teeth. Caudalié and Fussy are progressive takes on natural deodorants and Fussy is also refillable. Chanel No 5 deodorant made me fall in love with a 100-year-old scent I previously took for granted. Roger & Gallet, another old schooler, has incredible soaps. Like Miller Harris’s body wash, it cleans brilliantly and the scent lasts all day. I’m currently enjoying Spotlight’s Sonic Toothbrush and Gisou’s nourishing honey-infused hair line as they make practicalities less mundane. It’s the small things…
