Gianne’s Wellness Pick: Kosmatology Botanical Bliss Lotion Bar
November 18, 20192 min read
Since foundingWELL Summit, I’ve become a bit of a wellness product junkie. Organic mattress: Check. Squatty potty: Check. Matcha latte: Check. You can’t tell me I’m not living that wellness life!
One perk of my job is that our team is always researching and connecting with amazing brands to feature on WELL Insiders and to showcase in WELL Summit’s marketplace. Between the fantastic WELL Summit partners’ products we get to test and the stocked gift bags I receive from my speaking engagements, I get to try out a lot of wellness products. New products. Not yet released products. Products with a cult following. My goal is to do the detective work (lots of trial and error) to find that brands that are easy-to-use, trustworthy, and help me (and you) get closer to the goal of 360-degree wellness in my everyday life.
I’m always getting asked what I use in my personal routine, or what new brand my friends should know about—and that’s how we brainstormed this latest series, where I’ll be sharing my top wellness pick once a week. Not only will I share a personal, tried-and-true favorite, but I’ll also tell you a bit about the brand (so many wellness brands are started out of the founder’s passion) and give you details on why it might be a good fit for you. Think of this column as our chance to have a girl’s night together. So, keep reading (and bookmark this page!) for myWellness Pick of the Week!
I LOVE lavender. I can’t get enough, especially during my nighttime routine. The aroma of lavender has been used for centuries to induce sleep, and it’s a typical recommendation for an alternative/non-drug treatment for insomnia (and let me tell you, it works!). It’s also great as a topical skincare treatment—lavender has been shown to balance the oil production of the skin, and it can promote skin healing and rejuvenation. Who wouldn’t want that?
I also am a big fan of female-foundedKosmatology. This lotion bar keeps my hands from getting slippery, so it’s easy to apply to skin when I’m traveling or out in public.
I first learned ofKosmatologywhen the brand joined WELL Summit 2016 in NYC. Kosmatology was started by mom and former pharmacistJanis Coveywhen her youngest daughter developed eczema. Janis didn’t want to apply a steroid cream to her baby, so she started developing her line’s first lotion bar. Since using the lotion bar, her daughter has been eczema free for five years!
This lotion bar is one of my favorite gifting items because I know every ingredient was chosen with care. It’s perfect for travel or using around the house. I love it and I hope you will too!
