01 | GHIA Apéritif
For those of us looking to continue our dry January into an overall scale back on alcohol intake. This elixir is potent, with earthy flavors + botanicals. I personally couldn’t drink it straight, but when mixed with blackberry sparkling water + lemon juice, I was sold.

02 | KOR Poten-C
Sea buckthorn is one of the most concentrated natural sources of vitamin c, so I throw one of these back when i feel i might be coming down with something. A lot of wellness drinks on the market can be hard for me to stomach, but the fresh pineapple juice is the star here. Shoot one and lmk your thoughts? email@example.com

03 | Defined Dish Cookbook
*hold my drink* When I tell you I recommend this cookbook to everyone I know… I’m not lying. No matter your experience in the kitchen, this is one you should keep on deck. Delicious, flavorful, clean meals in 30 minutes — so easy and never lacking flavor. Plus, with the amount she’s in my kitchen, author Alex Snodgrass feels like a close friend [highly recommend giving her a follow].

04 | Essia Exfoliating + Lifting Wand
This 3-in-1 tool from Vanity Planet safely dislodges clogged pores with just the slightest vibration + it doesn’t stop there. After applying your favorite moisturizer + serum, the moisturizing mode uses the same ultrasonic oscillation to help skin absorb the product more deeply. The grand finale lift mode stimulates, lifts, and tightens the skin leaving it feeling loved x refreshed. Not sure if i’ll ever need to purchase another, more well-rounded facial tool again. Commencing at-home spa now.

05 | Eight Greens Phyto Masque
Post-facial, I was gifted a sample of this mask, and was blown away at how magically a product [even a tiny sample] could work. This hot mask heats up the skin while on + cools the surface when wiped off. Honestly, I have never had a mask flatten all my breakouts after one use. This organic x natural gem is my newfound skincare must have.
— Megan Breckenridge, Editorial Intern
07 | Resistance Bands
These little bands can help you get major results.Inexpensive and portable, they can easily slip into your purse or gym bag and can be used for upper + lower body exercises to add resistance without lifting weights. Plus, they come in varying resistance levels [light, medium + heavy]. Bonus: Put them to work with our our Mini Band Workout.

08 | JOYÀ Glow Elixir
I loved using JOYÀ’s Glow Wellness Elixir for turmeric lattes. I also played around and made a face mask with it. I love the packaging + how much product comes in the container.
— Kathleen, Aisle 9 Reader x Ambassador
09 | Bala Bangles
A workout accessory that makes exercise accessible, these sleek + stylish bangles turn everyday tasks into some form of fitness, simply by slipping them over the wrists or ankles.
