Have you been needing a self-care day where you can simply relax and focus on yourself? If so, now’s the time to schedule it! During some of my own self-care days I like to spend time on my passions and hobbies as well as my beauty routine.

Will you be having a self-care day? An evening cozied up with your favorite movie? A relaxing bubble bath? A longer beauty routine? Well, I have here a few of my favorite self-care products that I’d love to share with you!


On some self-care days I like to take care of my body as well as my mind with a workout. WodBottom has been a favorite workout brand of mine — I sport the cutest shorts and leggings from them on my workout days. Not only are their designs cute with fun patterns (lucky charms and unicorn patterned!), but they’re also extremely comfortable and durable for high intensity workouts as well. A go-to of mine is their Glorious Green Shorties — love the color!

This brand recently launched their Shortie of the Month Club and I am loving it! I got my exclusive lucky charms and unicorn patterned shorts this month. It’s $35 a month and you can cancel or skip anytime. Each month you’ll get an exclusive design of short. Plus, if you’re not in love with the next month’s design, you can skip any month anytime! You also get benefits such as a 20-50% store-wide discount on items, early access to select releases, free shipping on orders over $40, and an extra $1 is donated to Domestic Abuse Intervention Services every month. As a member, you also get access to past designs if in stock! WodBottom’s Shortie of the Month Club is definitely a worthy subscription that can add a bit of fun to your workouts. Receiving a new pair of exclusive workout shorts each month sounds like a perfect workout motivation to me!

Sand & Sky Tasmanian Spring Water Intense Hydrating Mask

Need some hydration? I love Sand & Sky’s Intense Hydrating Mask not only because it not only leaves my skin glowing and bright, but it also moisturizes my skin for long lasting hydration! I apply a thick layer on my face for 10 minutes and then wipe it off. Then my face is hydrated and happy for the rest of the day! The Tasmanian spring water mask is also made with cornflower and sea kelp to strengthen the skin’s barrier and reduce redness.

Tailored Union’s Cozy Socks

Ah, the glorious comfort of fresh cozy socks on clean feet! After your relaxing bubble bath, throw on a pair of Tailored Union’s cozy socks. I love this brand because the quality is felt and seen. And of course, the designs are so cute! I have the adorable Cozy Peach and Cozy Black socks! Both are extremely comfortable with a fuzzy inside, leaving you feeling warm and your feet happy!

Everything Lanolips!

I adore this brand and have been recommending them ever since I tried their 101 Ointment over a year ago. They’re my go-to brand for perfectly hydrated and dewy lips. Their products are made of “lanolin, which mimics human oils,” and they often use hyaluronic acid as well for extra moisture. My new favorite is their 101 Ointment Multi-Balm Coconutter — smells like coconut cream pie! I also love their Everywhere Cream, Tinted Lanolin Lip Balm Rhubarb, Peach Multi-Balm, and Milk & Honey Lanolin Hand Cream. My skin has suffered from the overly intense hand-washing of the pandemic and this hand cream works wonders! Plus, it smells great.

Coco & Eve Bali Bod Bundle!

Coco & Eve! I love this brand. Since you’ll be having a self-care day, it’s always fun to spend a bit of extra time with your beauty routine. Coco & Eve’s Bali Bod Bundle is a self-care day favorite, and their Smoothie Shower Gel is gentle and removes toxins and dirt without stripping your precious skin of natural oils. Their Bali Buffing Sugar is great for getting rid of those dead skin cells (note: use this with their Jelly Massage Mit!) And to leave your body hydrated and glowing, try the Body Moisture Whip. According to Coco & Eve it’s a “buttery-soft formula rich in fatty acids and antioxidants that smooths and softens skin.” Ah, so soft.

Sheer Nude Fabulips Lip Balm & Eye Got This Eye Mask

Want a splash of color for your lips? Bliss is another great beauty brand and their Vegan Sheer Pink Fabulips Lip Balm is the perfect shade of pink made with hyaluronic acid and a tri-peptide. And what self-care day would be complete without some under eye masks? I love adding them to my evening beauty routine when I have some extra time.

One of my favorites? I love the Eye Got This Hydrating Holographic Under Eye Masks. They have little stars on them! And of course they leave your under eyes refreshed and cool, all while reducing puffiness.

IT CosmeticsSuperhero No-Tug Waterproof Eyeshadow Stick

Maybe you want to add a pop of color to your eyes for your relaxing day without fully diving into your usual makeup look. Well I adore cream eyeshadows, — easy, smooth, efficient — and IT CosmeticsSuperhero No-Tug Waterproof Eyeshadow Stick is a new favorite in my eyeshadow stick collection. I love IT Cosmetics, and their eyeshadow sticks are no exception. A single swipe of color is long-lasting and blends easily. I have several colors, but my favorites are Passionate Pearl, Super Slate, Fearless Umber, and Gallant Gold!

So, how will you spend your self-care day? Will you be using any of these lovely products? Putting on those cozy socks? Hydrating masks? Scrubs? Okay, my beauty routine on self-care days may take a bit longer, but it’s so worth it! Ah, a relaxed day, soft lips, and hydrated skin…
