Vitamixes, Floss, and Salt Scrub: Our Desert Island Picks

0

The task was to choose a lonely island item without further instructions. For some of us at goop, this meant choosing the products that we love the most and that we would miss if we were really stuck on an island, even if they were a little inconvenient. For others, it meant checking the website for real island adventure needs – sunscreen, swimsuits, books – because, as they say, when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. And then there were the few who took it upon themselves to survive on the imaginary island. For legal reasons: We’re kidding when we say you can make a living on body butter, GOOPGLOW super powder and cocofloss.

THE REALISTS

“I love the foamy foam of the G.Tox peeling and how fresh and clean and soft my hair and scalp feel after I’ve shampooed it. It’s calming and nourishing, it feels heavenly, and it leaves my hair shiny and bouncy. If you add a little salt water from this desert island, I have perfect beach waves with no styling. “- Brianna Peters, assistant beauty editor

“This is a very difficult question. Emotionally, I want to say GOOPGENES Super Powder because we’ve been through so much together, from the first sip in the development cycle to the time I got three free packs with my last order. GreenPan is an option. Actually, I’ve looked through my order history and I think it’s the Buffy comforter. We don’t have it on the side anymore, but it’s pretty good. If anything, I wish it were harder. ” -Julian Ordaz-Fernandez, Manager, Goods Store

“I can’t leave home without my infrared sauna blanket. I’m just having fun. I actually use the Shiso perfume as my cologne. But to be honest, the Theragun is what I use the most. It helps with everything. If you’re doing any type of physical activity that makes you sore, it’s good to have it on hand. “- Justin Cefai, web developer

“The good vitamin C is my favorite. And I love the ZIIP too. I’ve just hired four women in my family to use the mini nano device. It does wonders for your pores. I like the routine of lymphatic drainage and do it while watching TV. Your face will look different afterwards – it’s like a facial. “- Sandra Slusarczyk, Associate Fashion Editor

“My boyfriend got me a weighted blanket for the holidays last year, and I don’t know what life was like before I had this thing. I’m usually a big zappler. I toss and turn and keep shuffling around my pillows before finally feeling calm and waking up to move around all night. It’s not much fun and is probably super annoying for anyone who has to share a bed with me. But there’s something about a weighted blanket that weighs you down just right. I feel well hidden. Not so forced to move every fifteen seconds. My legs don’t itch to rearrange. Going to bed isn’t that frustrating. I fall asleep and go back to sleep. And as you can imagine, my friend likes it too. “- Kelly Martin, Associate Editor

“I would take the Himalayan salt hair scrub and the slip pillowcase. The silk pillowcase isn’t for my hair – it’s for my skin. I have linen sheets that are rough on my face. The silk feels soft on my skin and I don’t wake up with leaf prints on my face. ” -Diana Ryu, chief of staff

THE SURVIVORS

“I’m kind of stressed about my lonely island. Am I alone Do I have Wi-Fi? Or will nobody ever see me? When I have Wi-Fi, I have to worry more about my skin and clothes, so maybe a fancy Natalie Martin caftan. I wanted to say the peel pillows but I probably can’t use them and be in the sun so much. If I don’t have wifi, I need something to pass the time. So you may want to download episodes from The Goop Podcast or a 50,000 piece puzzle. This shirt dress from G. Label Southampton would be great for a desert island. “—Noora Raj Brown, SVP Communication and Brand Marketing

ENJOY IT WHILE YOU CAN CRUISE

“If I were literally on a desert island, sun protection would obviously be the number one priority. The Organic Pharmacy SPF 50 is the best, best and best clean mineral formula as it sinks in like magic, moisturizes and works for both face and body. And it has to be mineral because I don’t want to kill coral every time I jump in the ocean (chemical sunscreen can do that). And I don’t want to irritate my skin. I want to calm it down. “- Jean Godfrey-June, Executive Beauty Director

“Obviously a swimsuit. But not just any suit – I’m talking about a G. Label suit, made in Italy from the softest stretch jersey fabric that won’t hug, pull or rub. Because as much as I want to channel a more bronzed Brooke Shields into The Blue Lagoon, some of us need coverage. Extra points for bringing the Himalayan salt scrub (though, if you’re really stuck on an island, you could just whip a salt scrub yourself). ” – Alyssa Nelsen Geiger, senior creative copywriter

“You say lonely island, and I look immediately – reflexively -. I don’t think I would
In general, survive long (and would have to be quick to adopt Drake’s maxim: here for one
good time, not long). I would definitely need sunglasses and these are my all time favorites. They make me look kind of cool which, after years of personal testing and research, I think only applies to 1 in 10,000 sunglasses I try on. And oversized sunglasses also protect the skin under your eyes from sunlight, which makes them particularly attractive. Speaking of sun exposure, I would of course try to smuggle in a moisturizing sunscreen with SPF 50 because that’s my brand. “- Jessie Geoffray, Senior Editor
