NEW MERCH DROP! Introducing Cocokind’s [super cute] Bucket Hat

Honestly, how cute is skincare-branded merch? Stickers, totes, hoodies – I love it all – even though you can feel like a walking advertisement at times, ha!

There’s nothing wrong with CeraVe of course, especially since it works, but again I’d like to find a more naturally formulated moisturizer that will meet my needs so that I can avoid the conventional stuff.

Microbiome-supporting products are very trendy at the moment, but as someone with dry skin I’ve long had barrier health in mind when it comes to my products so naturally this lotion felt like it was made for me. Alongside the new body lotion I also bought their in-shower scrubbing clay, which will be making an appearance in this post because it’s a great sidekick to this lotion.
