Instagram can suck you into a never-ending spiral of companies and products that sound too good to be true. Every now and then, though, some sparkly gems emerge that really ARE worth the hype they get. I like things that are organic, efficient, and add value to my life in some way. These are my favorite insta-worthy brands/products that I keep coming back to all the time.
Daily Harvest – This is honestly one of the best things I’ve done for myself this year. I mean, does it get any better than someone delivering organic food to your door? No. I don’t like to cook, but I also want to eat healthy, which is why the entire concept of frozen, healthy meals that you can just dump into a skillet/blender is PERFECT. It’s as close to no effort as you can get. Do yourself a favor and try the mint & cacao smoothie and the chaga lattes. They literally taste like ice cream and hot chocolate. For $25 off, use code RE-AHKY4YY.
Rothy’s – I LOVE THESE. First of all, they’re the comfiest shoes ever. I have two pairs right now, and I’ll probably never buy another brand of shoes again. They’re that good. Plus they’re made out of recycled water bottles, and are machine washable. DO IT. For $20 off, click here.
JaxKelly – JaxKelly makes the cutest nontoxic candles ever. They each have a crystal inside too! You know I can’t resist a good crystal/candle combo. My favorite scents are rose quartz, blue chalcedony, and citrine. They also have super cute earrings that I love. My ears are really sensitive and their earrings don’t make me itchy or sore, which is saying a lot.
Lola Tampons – By now you’ve probably heard about Lola. They’re everywhere and helping change the world of feminine care. Traditional tampons are nasty AF (see my previous post here) so it’s important that you’re buying organic tampons/pads. No one wants sketchy chemicals up there! I love that I don’t ever have to think about going to the store since they come straight to your house. The only downside is the shipping is pretty slow (NY to OK takes about 10 days, which seems excessive).
Fitglow Beauty – If you’re obsessed with lip products, you will love Fitglow’s lip serum! It’s pricey but worth EVERY penny, and I honestly won’t use anything else. It’s 100% organic and contains vegan collagen so you get a perfect pout. My favorite everyday color right now is Rosé.
Kopari – I can’t think of a more hyped-up insta-famous brand than Kopari, but I love them! The one product I’ll never stop buying is the Organic Coconut Melt. I know, I know. I could buy a giant tub at Whole Foods, but there’s just something about this one. The quality is wonderful and the style of the tub is convenient. I use it to take my makeup off, moisturize my body, moisturize under my eyes, and as a hair mask. I also really love putting a glob in the bath. It’s great anytime my skin is itchy/rashy too. I also love their Lip Glossy!
Woo More Play – This is going to be TMI, especially if you’re in my family, so stop reading if you are.
Are you gone yet? Good.
So this isn’t actually an Instagram discovery, but a podcast one (shoutout to the Skinny Confidential). The main product Woo is known for is their organic lube! TBH I never gave much thought to lube before. I always thought it was for old people, but this has changed my mind. Just like with tampons, you need to be careful about what you use! Woo contains organic coconut oil, beeswax, and vanilla essence. Don’t overthink it – just buy it.
