Revamp Your Morning Routine

S.W. Basics of Brooklyn LemongrassBodyOil

I love using body oil in place of body lotion. I think its more comfortable and more effective at moisturizing, especially early in the morning.

Zum Bar Goat's Milk Soap, Lemongrass

Recently I’ve been obsessed with the scent of Lemongrass and had a hard time finding a summer body wash with that scent, so instead I picked up this bar soap from Indio Wild. Its super moisturizing, smells exactly like lemongrass and is the perfect bar of soap for summer.
