We’re Obsessed!

The fuel and beauty products our editors are obsessed with.

Fuel Up

This month, we’re loving wine, chocolate pudding, oh, and some veggies too.

1. “One spoonful of Teavana Imperial Matcha ($35, teavana.com) has 10 times the antioxidant content of tea, but I love it because it’s a great caffeine fix anywhere coffee isn’t served. I’ve brought this with me into the Nigerian jungle!”
Jessie Sebor, editor in chief

2. “Former pro triathlete Brendan Brazier is a vegan—but in his Thrive Energy Cookbook ($23, brendanbrazier.com), the focus is simply on ‘plant-based whole food recipes.’ I wish the yellow peanut curry rice bowl could leap off the page and into my mouth!”
Nicki Miller, managing editor

3. “I heart the Vitamix Pro 750 ($689, vitamix.com)! It not only makes smoothies, but also sorbet in six minutes and soups in less than eight. It  definitely makes me eat healthier–I can’t live without it.”
Erin Douglas, art director

4. “Chocolate pudding has always been my favorite dessert. This Chocvocado version delivers a rich taste that’s full of healthy fats and fiber, making my obsession healthy!”
Allison Pattillo, gear editor

5.Bon Affair Wine Spritzer ($14 for 750ml, bonaffair.com) is an electrolyte-packed bubbly that’s perfect for a post-run celebration with your girls—and it has half the cals of regular wine!”

Freshen Up

This month, we can’t get enough of feel-good shades and dry-skin tricks.

1. “This stuff rocks! Carlene K Cosmetics Shine Bronzer ($30, carlenekcosmetics.com) is perfect for my pasty white legs, and it smells great, like mocha-vanilla. Best part? You can gradually add color and it doesn’t rub off!”
Erin Douglas, art director

2.EOS Smooth Sphere Lip Balm ($3, evolutionofsmooth.com) is trendy with its unique round shape and twist-and-click top—the flavors are yummy, and the line is 100 percent organic. Plus it gives you super soft lips on those really dry run days!”
Caitlyn Pilkington, associate editor

3. “Last February, I ran the Women’s Running Series Half Marathon in San Diego to raise money for the Edith Sanford Breast Cancer Foundation. I love that I can support this special cause year-round with the sparkly pink shade Julep Edith Nail Color ($14, julep.com).”
Jessie Sebor, editor in chief

4. “Just about every day, I count my blessings as I slip into the hot tub at my new home. Whether it’s after a long or short run—or on a rest day- the rejuvination powers of hot waters hidden under the bougainvillea are mysterious yet powerful. It’s must-have therapy!”
Nicki Miller, managing editor
