9. A creamy deep conditioner from Bread Beauty Supply for anyone with 3a–4c hair who's in search of a lightweight, nourishing conditioner. It uses bush plum and starflower super-fruit oils to leave curls feeling soft and moisturized without weighing them down.

27. Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Blush by Fenty Beauty that melts into skin to give you a from-within flush. Its buildable formula lets you go as light or heavy as you want, but IMO there's no such thing as too much blush.

28. Loose leaf tea from Brooklyn Tea that makes any night spent at home feel a little cozier. I particularly recommend their Vanilla Rooibos and Darjeeling teas. Hmmmm maybe I'll go put on some water for a cup of rooibos right now, that sounds good.
