Here's what's filling our dream shopping carts:
Maggie, Director of Content Strategy
Bumble and Bumble Pret-a-Powder Post-Workout Dry Shampoo Mist ($30): I'm trying to cut back on washing my hair. A couple of spritzes of this dry shampoo mist could take me from my Peloton to my next Zoom meeting.
La Mer The Nourishing Soft Cream Hydration Duet ($345): We said money was no object, right? Developed by a physicist, I've long wanted to try this celebrity-beloved brand.
Voluspa Gilt Pomander Hearth Candle ($198): 123 oz of this warm and spicy scent would make my apartment smell heavenly for years to come.

OUAI Curl Cream with North Bondi Fragrance ($38): OUAI is my favorite haircare line and though I wouldn't consider my hair curly, it is thick and wavy. I bet this curl cream would enhance those waves as well as make me smell like North Bondi, a really great white floral perfume from this brand that I already own and love.
Maison Louis Marie No.04 Bois de Balincourt Eau de Parfum ($85): You know I couldn't build a Dream Cart without a perfume! This one feels really close to Commodity's Book and Le Labo's Santal 33, two sandalwood heavy scents that feel very uni-sexy to me. Bois de Balincourt is a touch more floral but I love how this wears on my skin in the oil fragrance formula and in their deodorant as well, so time to invest in a big bottle.
PAT McGRATH LABS Mothership VIII Eyeshadow Palette - Divine Rose II Collection ($125): This is a palette I saw swatched on Instagram and I literally think about it all the time. The mauves, the nudes, the roses, and the duochrome! I am obsessed. It is super expensive for a palette, but this totally belongs in my Dream Cart.

Tom Ford Neroli Portofino Eau De Parfum ($250): While I really love the name of this perfume by Tom Ford, Neroli Portofino is the one I think I would enjoy the most, scent-wise. It has key notes of orange flower and lavender (both scents I love) along with Italian bergamot, and it pays homage to the Italian Riviera. I am a sucker for gorgeous packaging, and the blue glass of this bottle is truly eye-catching.
Fresh Crème Ancienne Ultimate Nourishing Honey Mask ($160): I already love most of the face masks Fresh makes, and I have been wanting to try this luxurious honey-packed one for over a year. It is made with 38% Buckfast Bee Honey and also has meadowfoam seed oil and echinacea extract. I can already tell my skin would love it, but this stuff is so out of reach for me I have never even been able to find a sample of it to try.
Mount Lai Jade Massaging Comb ($52): This is such an unnecessary product, but man could it add some luxury to my self-care routine. Plus, I love scalp massages and hold a lot of tension in my face, and this massaging comb could help me relax while stimulating growth.

BREAD BEAUTY SUPPLY Wash-Day Essentials Kit for Curly & Textured Hair ($58): I’ve been seeing this brand everywhere, and I am dying to try their products. I have a ton of curls and it feels like they are always dry. If money was no object, I’d be on the hunt for a game-changer — and Bread Beauty could be it!
Moon Juice Acid Potion AHA + BHA Resurfacing Exfoliator ($48): I’m a skincare-obsessed queen! The Moon Juice Acid Potion AHA + BHA Resurfacing Exfoliator is one of those extra steps in the skincare routine of the bougie that I envy. It’s all about smooth skin and unclogged pores, and this product is a beast at exfoliating and resurfacing.
Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Pro Facial Steamer ($149): Facial steamers always looks so fancy and spa-like. They hydrate, purify, and moisturize skin … I want it! But I’m also too cheap to buy it. One of these days I’m going to break down and and come out of a crazy online shopping haze owning one.
Caroline, Chief of Staff
Goop GOOPGLOW Microderm Instant Glow Exfoliator ($125): I've tried the mini size and I absolutely fell in love. After just one use, I noticed an improvement in my complexion and texture of my skin. My skin feels so silky and smooth, I'm obsessed.
Dr. Barbara Sturm Darker Skin Tones Hyaluronic Serum ($300): Hyaluronic acid is a must-have ingredient in my daily skincare routine. Influencers can't seem to stop talking about it, so would like to try it.
La MerCrème de la Mer Moisturizer ($510): A classic. I read somewhere that a famous actress uses this as body cream to keep her body firm and moisturized.
Taryn, Contributing Writer
Dermalogica Hydro Masque Exfoliant ($60): My skin is very dry so I need something that can remove buildup without stripping my skin. I've had my eye on this masque for a while since it exfoliates, smoothes, and hydrates your skin all in one! Isn't that just the dream for us dry skin people?!
Herbivore Phoenix Rosehip Anti-Aging Face Oil for Dry Skin ($88): My skin loves rosehip oil, but when I can get that plus anti-aging and hydrating benefits all in one then I am sold! This has amazing reviews for leaving your skin hydrated and glowing while truly combating even eczema-prone skin.
NuFace Trinity Facial Toning Device ($325): One of my favorite bloggers has been talking about this product for a while now and it has really caught my attention. I've read that you need to be very dedicated to using it often for best results, and at that price, I would be too! The device provides micro-current facial toning to firm and combat signs of aging.
Dyson Airwrap Styler ($549): In a world without a price tag, I need this in my thick-yet-limp-haired life. I love a barrel that is clamp-free (aka idiot-proof), and with six versatile attachments to complete the set, I'm pretty sure this styler is my next untapped obsession.
NuBODY Skin Toning Device ($399): I know the jury is still out on ultrasonic cavitation, but I want to believe that one can break free of their thigh genetics! Heading into summer without a budget, I'd cross my fingers, keep at it on my Peloton, and give this one a whirl for a hopeful boost.
Herbivore Coconut Milk Bath Soak ($18): Karl Lagerfeld once said that he soaked in a concentrated milk bath every day. While the late Chanel icon is not exactly the vision I hold in mind for all my beauty goals, still ... I find myself intrigued. $18 adds up when you're using the whole kit and caboodle on the daily!
