7 Wellness Items We’re Stocking Up On

Our favorite essentials for days (and nights) indoors.

By: Leah Faye Cooper

Our shopping habits have understandably shifted over the past few weeks, and we’re especially interested in wellness purchases. As we adjust to working from home, streaming our fitness classes instead of going to the gym, and replacing our daily coffees and matchas with homemade shakes, teas, and tonics, we’re relying on our new essentials. From immune boosters to ankle weights, here are seven wellness items we’re stocking up on.


The Super Booster Immune System Support with Kakadu Plum, $92

“I’m guilty of claiming I’m going to try every vitamin, elixir, and supplement that comes across my desk, but never actually doing that. With lots more time on my hands right now, and an increased emphasis on my health and well-being, I’m sticking to that claim. First up: this lemony ginger-tasting immune booster which I’ll be adding to my daily cup of green tea.” —Leah Faye Cooper, Editorial Director

Bala Bangles 1 lb Weights, $49

“I haven’t gotten these yet because I’m still attempting to offset my over-budget food hoarding, but I’ve had my eyes on them for a while, and it seems like now is the time!” —Olivia Kenney, Junior Producer

Mask Variety Box CBD Sheet Mask, $85

“These are great. They have a no-slip texture so you can multitask with them on (WFH, laundry, etc.), and there’s a version for men with beards.” —Ariane Martins, Experiential & Brand Partnerships Manager

Shepherd of Sweden Hans Multicolor Patchwork Slippers, $71

“Unless it’s summer, I always wear slippers in the house, which means my trusty shearling pair has gotten a lot of use over the past few days. I made an executive decision to upgrade to this adorable patchwork style, and my feet have never been so cozy. It takes my mind off the fact that my vast shoe collection won’t be getting any love anytime soon.” —Hannah Baxter, Senior Beauty Editor

Four Mushroom Hot Cacao Mix with Reishi, $20

“If you have a sweet tooth that is unwavering (like mine), the Four Sigmatic Cocoa is seriously a game changer. The cinnamon/chocolatey mixture has become my new nightly ritual.” —Alex Bair, Sales & Brand Partnerships Manager

Species by the Thousands Energy Clearing Spray, $20

“This spray is awesome (and locally made). Just purchased!” —Olivia Kenney, Junior Producer

Essie Expressi Polish, $9

“Because I won’t be going to the nail salon for bi-weekly gel manicures anymore, I’m re-learning the art of the self-manicure and stocked up on these new quick-dry polishes from Essie. The colors are great, and they really do dry quickly. This magenta color has been my favorite.” —Ariane Martins, Experiential & Brand Partnerships Manager
