Welcome to this blog post, Paris Laundry: Curated Online Wellness Shop. I’ve become increasingly more stoked about Paris Laundry since I initially learned about this unique online shop. Initially, I had received a generous PR package from them, which was a very kind intro to them & what they do (the first picture below).
Just for reference and understanding of how this shop landed on my radar & why I’m writing this blog post–I am (very) fortunate to receive a lot of complimentary product from a range of natural/wellness-focused brands. The majority of those packages don’t appear here on my blog. This platform is reserved for the best of the best! Here is a space for me to share products that I’ve truly enjoyed and recommend to you. So, hopefully that provides you an understanding that this isn’t just another online shop.
Kelsey Bucci, founder of Paris Laundry, has vetted, experienced and tested these products. She has used her own standards & discernment to curate this shop’s offerings. It won’t take you long on the Paris Laundry site to realize that it’s wellness-focused with no room for toxic ingredients.
It’s a collection of meaningful products that can fuel your healthy life. This feels like a new concept to me, especially the fact that the founder & curator is a clean beauty lover & advocate. She’s also a mother of 4 & a breast cancer survivor. What. A. Woman!
It’s like, sure, you can find shops online that have “hand picked” products to make up a store. But, are the products clean? Non toxic? Mindfully sourced? I just appreciate what Paris Laundry is doing in this space.
First Products & Impressions
–Lip Whip by Kari Gran: This product has a dreamy consistency. The deep pink color is a fun color pop on the lips and has hints of shimmer within in. I always mix my lip colors; this has been the “pink” option lately in my terracotta & pink lip color combo I create.
–Dry Body Brush: Amongst my daily habits for wellness is dry brushing. This one by Paris Laundry was a new style brush for me to try. The handle makes it easy to reach around your body (I brush in the shower–which doesn’t technically make it dry brushing, but hey. There’s some flow benefit there.) Couple this with The Everything Oil and it’s fully a spa in the shower.
–Silk Headband: I love a headband to throw on for a skincare routine. Also, Paris Laundry’s collection of headbands has inspired me to rock a headband more often in good ol’ regular life, too. They’ve got several of colors and patterns to pick from. I especially dig the terracotta color pictured above.
–Nourishing Facial Oil: Sea Buckthorn, Rose and Watermelon Seed oil are the 3 ingredients that stand out to me in this one. I know Sea Buckthorn to be great for most if not all skin types, Rose great for calming the skin and I was excited to have Watermelon in an oil; first timer. It’s a dream for the skin. Your skin doesn’t want anything after you use this on it. I love it both as a nighttime oil and as a means to oil cleanse the face. I use an organic hemp cloth or facial brush in my oil cleansing routine.
–The Everywhere Oil: The Everywhere oil had be at Moringa, Sandalwood & Jojoba. I love the scent of both of these oils. They really let the natural scent of these plant oils shine, while definitely not being too fragrant or too much. This oil, alongside a dry brushing routine is really the key for me to have healthy, glowy skin on my body. Sure, nutrition plays a role in skin. However, this practice is huge player. Also, consistency of these practices pays off.
–Golde Superfood Elixirs: As an avid superfood superfan, these blends excited me. They did not disappoint. I love that the ingredients elevate the warm drink experience by adding anti-inflammatory and gut-loving ingredients to the overall effect. This sampler pack would make for a great travel companion for commuting, camping, roadtripping or flying.
–“Killing It” Glass Mug: Who doesn’t appreciate a good boost these days? I love having some words on my coffee mug that make me smile. The message is great and the feel of this glass mug in your hand feels fancy.
–Talking Out of Turn Mini Notepad: I’ve been journaling and taking notes more than ever to juggle my full time job, blogging and staying inspired. Frequently, I find myself wanting to write something down that I’m inspired by that I just heard.
Also, capturing ideas and expressing moments of creativity is another way I’ve been using this little notepage. The fact that it’s small enough to throw in any purse is an added perk. Because: who doesn’t have creative moments in their car? I know I do.

Second Bundle of Recent Tries (First Order I Placed for Myself)
–Fitglow Vita Active Foundation: I could write at length about this product. Fitglow is a brand that has been on my radar for several years now, but because I was not out of foundation–I didn’t buy this product until now. The fact that Paris Laundry carries several Fitglow products was a sign to me that it was time! J
This foundation is a dream and worth every penny. So, for a lot of natural foundations, you can have issues like it’s too oily, its runny if you sweat at all. With this one–nope. It goes on pretty matte for me, which I really like. I’m not sure how true this actually is (it has been the case for me), but I heard natural foundations tend to darken on your face throughout the day. I opted for the lighter of the two colors I was debating back and forth on–for this reason.
I added a little bit of powder in my t-zone area and then bronzer where the sun naturally hits my face and I was really into how it turned out. Also, I somehow guessed the perfect shade for myself (I got VF 3.5).
I always recommend having a few foundation shades on hand for blending if your skin shade changes quite a bit with the seasons. I’m a completely different color in the summer than I am in the winter. For this transition into summer, this color works for me. I’ll add more bronzer to my look as summer progresses if I need to in order for it to suit my tan.
–Ere Perez Brow Hero: This was a bit of a leap for me, as I’m typically a brown pencil gal. A pencil feels more predictable, I just know what I’m getting with a pencil. I had so many questions about Brow Hero! Will it get onto my skin? Then will it be a disaster oil slick when I start sweating? Working out? Welp, I’m surprised and pleasantly surprised that it stayed where I put it. I’m sure if I aggressively swept away my mid-workout brow sweat, it would smudge. But, that literally goes for any makeup.
It made each individual brow hair look thicker and helped bring out any hairs that aren’t as naturally pigmented. I used this in combination with the Brow Pencil (below). I’m a multi-product routine for brows and I’m used to that. I like each different product and implement it for different reasons. Also, it’s so nice to have brow products that are clean. I always think about how most brow products probably contribute to thinning brows when they’re full of chemicals.
–Ere Perez Brow Pencil: This shade almost completely nails it for me. Like I mentioned above, I’m used to having a few brow products going on, so I used this in combination with a darker pencil on the upper/outer part of my brow to define and it was perfect. For the part of my brow closer to the middle of my face, I like a lighter brown; this was it.
Performance wise, this pencil stayed put and really complimented Brow Hero well. For reference, I started first with the pencils and then finished with the Brow Hero product, which acts like a brow gel as well as adding pigment & volume.
–Relax Slippers: I love the message on these slippers just as much as the coziness level. As their website shares, they are indeed plush and soft. I barely sneak my size 11 feet into their size L/XL (they clearly note that they are for a size 8 or 9). But, they are a good fit for around the house.
Paris Laundry: Curated Online Wellness Shop
It’a been a good one! I would consider myself to be well-versed in clean beauty. However, I found it helpful to have a curated shop full of products that are free of many concerning, common contaminants in personal care products. Also, knowing that these products perform is a big help, too! Not all products perform well (regardless of ingredient quality), and it’s nice to know ahead of time that they come recommended.
In regards to ingredient cleanliness, check out Paris Laundry’s commitment to clean:
When it comes to bringing in products to Paris Laundry, we do not take that responsibility lightly. We only carry brands that uphold our standards in green, high-quality ingredients, and products that we would only use on ourselves as well. Every product ingredient list is examined to ensure safety and cross referenced with BCPP’s List of Chemicals of Concern. This list is a comprehensive glossary of chemicals with strong evidence linked to breast cancer, and other chronic health effects.https://parislaundry.com/pages/about-us-1
