Recently, our VP of Philanthropy & Ethos, Dariel Sidney, sent out an email titled “3 Things Around the Water Cooler”. It allowed the team at RevitaLash Cosmetics to catch up, share what we’ve been up to, and feel connected, all from the comfort and safety of our homes. As we’ve all worked to flatten the curve, we’ve each had our own personal learning curve on how to remain happy, healthy, and sane from the confines of our homes. Maintaining a sense of community has played a huge factor in helping us all feel sane and connected, and we couldn’t be luckier to have that within this amazing organization. We found that many answers had consistent themes – baking, cooking, working out, and entertainment. Here’s some of things helping our team and getting us through to the other side.
In the Kitchen
As dining out became impossible, many of us had no choice but to reacquaint ourselves with our kitchens and start getting creative. The team at RevitaLash Cosmetics has been cooking and baking up a storm, and banana bread has been a popular theme (unsurprisingly). Here are some of our favorites recipes we’ve tried so far!
Lashes & Brows
What better time than quarantine to get your lashes and brows looking their best? Much of team RLC has used this time to get consistent with their use of RevitaLash® Advanced and RevitaBrow® Advanced. We look forward to being back in the office soon with bat-worthy lashes and bold, beautiful brows!
From daily walks to Zoom classes, team RLC has taken this time to dedicate themselves to selfcare. Without daily commutes or being able to drive to gyms and studios, we have even more time in our day to do something to better our minds and bodies. Here’s a few of our favorite workouts, meditation apps and more:
Reconnecting & Staying Connected
One of the biggest silver-linings during quarantine is being able to spend quality time with our families. We’ve all been able to enjoy more family dinners, more frequent video chatting with friends and far away family, and practicing gratitude for it all.
What better time to dig into a new book or series than now? Here are some of our teams’ recommendations for movies, shows, reads and more!
- The Music Man
- The James Bond Series
- The Batman Series
- Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens
- Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari
- Untamed by Glennon Doyle
- I’m Your Huckleberry: A Memoir by Val Kilmer
- Normal People
- Little Fires Everywhere
- The Last Dance
All Things Beauty
From finessing skincare routines, putting down the hot tools, or experimenting with different makeup looks, team RLC is taking advantage of this time by stepping up their beauty game. There’s no better time than quarantine to try new products and techniques or take a break from your usual beauty routine and give your skin and hair a vacation. Here’s a few of our favorite skin, hair and makeup products that we can’t get enough of!
