The year is almost officially up and that probably means you're looking to lock up those New Year's Eve plans. We've shared with you our picks for a night out on the town and a house party. Now, we're taking it back a notch with our Senior Editor Caitlin's pick for everything you need for a cozy and calm night in. Cue the Netflix and see what Caitlin has up for you!
"Since I won't be hitting the town this NYE, I'm going to take this as an opportunity to get a kickstart on those resolutions. Although I'm not one to vow to drastically change my diet or go on some crazy workout plan (a gal's gotta enjoy life!), I am planning on making sure I'm taking better care of my body in 2019. To me, this means upping those greens and swapping my morning latte for a healthy sip. This Kusmi BB Detox Tea is a blend of mate and green tea and actually uses dandelion, grapefruit, and rooibos to help detoxify and clear up skin. Plus, it's Meghan Markle's go-to, so anything to be one step closer to royalty and I'm sold!"
"After I've sipped my tea and had my greens (or mozzarella sticks because balance), I'm opting for a nice and relaxing at-home spa night. My first pick for R&R is the Influenster Reviewers' Choice Award Winning scrub and my all-time favorite exfoliator, Tree Hut's sugar scrub. But instead of sticking to my usual scrub, this year I'm reaching for the brand new Charcoal Black Sugar Scrub. This deep cleansing scrub contains glycolic acid, ginger, whole sugar, and you guessed it, purifying charcoal. I'll be rolling into 2019 feeling so fresh and so clean, clean."
"But what's a spa night at home without a facial mask? I was curious about which mask I should give a go on NYE night, but leave it to the Influenster community to come up with the perfect match. Origins Clear Improvement Charcoal Honey Mask is right in line with my detox-and-treat-yourself theme of the night. This mask contains bamboo charcoal to get deep down into skin and slough away 2018's impurities (kidding—kind of) and wildflower and fermented honey to calm skin and fight bacteria.
"And because I'll be spending the night in, I'm likely going to be cueing up a night full of flicks. And, let's be real, some tears are sure to be had when I watch Love Actually for the 10th time. To fight any puffiness, I'll be sure to arm myself with Peace Out's Puffy Under-Eye Patches. These stick-on patches tackle puffiness and under eye circles a.k.a. the evidence of my holiday movie binge in just minutes. Good thing there are six pairs in a pack—I have a feeling I'll be needing these in the AM too."
5. GLAMGLOW Good in Bed Passionfruit Softening Night Cream
"The best part about staying in on NYE is getting to bed at a reasonable hour. I love waking up in the new year knowing I got a full night of sleep! But before I hit the hay, I'm going to turn to my new go-to moisturizer from GLAMGLOW. Good in Bed is a powerful new night cream that gets to work evening and conditioning skin while you snooze. I'm loving the mix of nourishing passionfruit and cocktail of exfoliating AHA/BHA/PHA acids to totally revitalize skin."
