Amber Bottles

The best hack I’ve ever implemented in my bathroom is, by far, these amber bottles. When you decant your shampoo, conditioner, face wash and body wash, your shower becomes a luxury spa. I’m not kidding. I like to use this larger size on the sink for hand soap and hand lotion, replicating the (very) expensive Aesop Resurrection Duet Hand Wash And Balm. Bonus points if you attach these vinyl letters to spell out the contents. Buh-bye annoying, text-laden labels.

Lesse Skincare

It’s not often that I’m impressed with a new skincare line’s entire collection. Lesse, whose motto is "Lesse is more," has achieved that. I understand that you want uncomplicated steps to better skin, and founder and Sydney-native Neada Deters intuitively taps into that desire. With a concise line of three products (a skin-changing serum-oil hybrid, a charcoal face mask that smears like a gel and an exfoliating cleanser that nourishes like Greek yogurt), the minimal routine is unfussy. And it looks so good on your shelf.
