RIDE-OR-DIE PRODUCTS: JANUARY 2021

One of the best things about working at CLOVE + HALLOW is that every staff member is a key part of the research and development process when a new product is in the works. We're responsible for taking notes on every aspect of development, from a product's scent and texture to its name and packaging. This means we're constantly in the background, testing out innovative new formulas—ones we're working on, of course, but also from other brands.


TL;DR: The CLOVE + HALLOW team are beauty industry experts with high product standards. Every month, we'll be spotlighting the products that have earned our seal of approval.

LUSH Avobath


"Avobath Bath Bomb by LUSH is my personal zen that softens my skin! I haven't been able to soak in a bath for two months—I've had surgeries—and I miss it dearly. It smells like a dream with hints of lemongrass and leaves my skin so soft and hydrated."


— Kesha Smith,

Education & Artistry Manager



Farmacy Sleep Tight Firming Night Balm

Farmacy's Sleep Tight Firming Night Balm is holy grail status for me. This is a life savor for dry-skinned people like me who need hydration throughout the night. It melts into skin like a dream and stimulates collagen with plant-powered ingredients."


—Viktoria Burak, Visual Creative Manager



Tower 28 Bronzino Illuminating Cream Bronzer

"You can pry my Tower 28 Bronzino Illuminating Cream Bronzer from my cold, dead hands. I use a dense complexion brush to apply it to my cheekbones, jawline, and temples, and it gives the most radiant, dewy glow."

— Kate Foster Kaplove,

Senior Manager of Content

& Communications



CLOVE AND HALLOW H2Glow Hydrating Serum

"CLOVE + HALLOW's H2Glow Hydrating Serum offers intense hydration to help plump up 'mature' skin—plus it has all the best skin-loving vitamins."


— Jennifer Biggers-Carmody, Operations Manager



OUAI Hair Oil

"I love the OUAI Hair Oil for a few purposes. I put it in my damp hair before blow-drying, then use a little for my flyaways after I’m done styling. I also sometimes use it as a mask before I shower when I feel like my hair is pretty worn-down and dry!"


— Colleen Drago,

Wholesale Manager




"The Malin + Goetz Vitamin E Face Moisturizer is truly amazing. I’ve been using it forever, and for good reason: My skin therapist told me last week that my skin is perfectly hydrated and to continue the regimen I'm on."


— King Imani,

General Manager
