Products CSL editors love, and you should try too!
1. The B(a)lm!
With a faint, sweet smell and soft texture, this balm feels luxurious. A small daub melts easily at body temperature. Then, just slather it on from head-to-toe. It is made with a slew of natural moisturizing oils including sunflower oil, coconut oil and avocado oil, and ingredients that soothe and heal skin like calendula and plantain leaf. Hey, the doctor knows best! Zoe Organics Dr. Shannon’s Organic Skin Balm, 57 g, $25.
2. Earl-y Grey
Although you can use this body wash at anytime, there’s nothing quite like a revitalizing shower in the morning. Citrus scents are known to boost your mood – so you can add pizzazz to your routine and start your day right with the fresh zing of orange and bergamot (which gives earl grey tea its unmistakable aroma and taste). All we have to say is hooray for a new day! Molton Brown Orange & Bergamot Body Wash, 300 ml, $30 (USD).
3. Egg on Your Face (in a good way)
For centuries women have used egg white to purify and cleanse skin. This highly scented soap, made in Belgium draws on this age-old tradition. With the healing properties of chamomile and packaged in a cute blue box decorated with drawings, it gives new meaning to egg on your face!

4. Days of the Week

The pretty antibacterial cloths come in a little black box tied with pink ribbon – one for every day of the week. Aurelia Skincare Monday to Sunday Bamboo Muslins, $32 (USD);
5. Bare It All
