Loving This Week: Watermelon Glow + Luxe Laundry Detergent

COS Sweater - Dried van Noten Boots - Glow Recipe Sleeping Mask - The Laundress Detergent - Misha Nonoo Shirt

It’s so rare to find a skincare product that 100% delivers on all its promises. So, when I tripped across Glow Recipe’s Watermelon Glow in a bag of samples from Sephora, I wasn’t expecting a lot. But, I’m happy to report that this delicious-smelling sleeping mask made my skin as glowing and even-textured as promised. I’ve found a new favorite.

In other shopping news, a pair of brocade boots that are richly detailed, but still completely at home in a neutral wardrobe. And perfumed laundry detergent that will make your wardrobe smell just like the contemporary section at Harrod’s. If you’ve ever been there, you know that’s a good thing.

Check out all my top shopping picks for the week…

1. COS Collage Merino-Yak Jumper, $115.00
The contrasting back panel, which is a ribbed wool and yak hair blend, gives this wool sweater some extra visual interest. If, like me, you are starting to feel like all your sweaters kind of look the same, this could be the antidote.

2. Dries van Noten Leaf Print Angle Heel Bootie, $695.00
These textile boots are gorgeous. They are the most unique boots I’ve seen in a long while, with a vaguely retro feel and a print that is both eye-catching and neutral. I feel like they would breathe new life into a predominantly black, white, and grey wardrobe.

3. Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask, $45.00
Watermelon Glow is one of those rare products that does exactly what it says it will. I got sample from Sephora with my last order and managed to squeeze out three nights worth of product. It truly does improve skin texture and hydration, thanks to a potent blend of AHAs and hyaluronic acid. I noticed a significant improvement after just three nights, and I already take amazing care of my skin, so it takes something special to create a noticeable improvement. I will be purchasing a full-size jar with my next order.

4. The Laundress x Le Labo Santal 33 Signature Detergent, $45.00
I’m not sure how I feel about the concept of luxury laundry detergent for everyday wear, but the idea of swathing myself in Santal 33 scented layers on a chilly day has its appeal. This is what happens when the best high-end laundry detergent meets the finest compounded-to-order luxe perfume. I have a feeling it’s a bit like magic.

5. Misha Nonoo The Husband Shirt, $185.00
This is the white shirt that Meghan Markle has been spotted wearing several times, including during her much-photographed appearance at the Invictus Games. Tempting, right?
