Aveda employees have access to tons of great products, from new launches to classic favorites and we all have our top-tier favorites — the products we always use down to the last crucial drop. Now, we’re sharing those secrets with you! Check out our wintertime #avedaempties.
SHANNON, DESIGN DIRECTOR
Moisture is the one thing my long, curly hair can’t get enough of, especially in the midst of “polar vortex” season. Without fail, every time I get out of the shower I use a few drops (or more than a few!) of Dry Remedy Oil on my damp hair, especially near the ends. I can’t believe I lived so much of my adult life without this product! My hair dries super soft and hydrated. I thought an oil would make my hair feel greasy but I guess I underestimated how dry my hair was. I can’t get enough of this stuff. And it smells amazing.

Botanical Kinetics Hydrating Treatment Lotion is a total lifesaver for my dry skin. I splash it on my face right after cleansing while my skin is still damp. I apply it before my moisturizer and see a boost in hydration and softness. I can’t live without Tulasāra Firm Concentrate – it’s magic. I always use it at night.
Winter turns my hair into a staticky, tangly nightmare. A little bit of Dry Remedy Daily Moisturizing Oil is my favorite fix. I have straight, fine hair and would normally shy away from oil, but two to four drops go a LONG way to keep the winter hair monster tamed.

I’m usually a three shots of espresso type of girl, but in effort to cut down on my caffeine intake, I thought I would test out the energizing aromatherapy effects of our Rosemary Mint Hand & Body Wash. All I can say is – wow! I think it’s obvious from this photo that it’s become a staple in my shower.
TERESE, ASSOCIATE DESIGN DIRECTOR
Tulasāra Wedding Masque Eye:
I love dabbing this yummy creme around my eyes every night. (I even use it in the daytime too — if this is against the rules, I don’t care!) It’s a powerhouse in a cute little pot. Did you know that the shape of the jar is representative of Ayurveda’s 3 doshas: vata, pitta, kapha?
Tulasāra Radiant Oil:
I like to soak my whole face and neck with this delicious oil at night. You can wipe it off, but I love to let it absorb all night. I also like to add a bit to my foundation or tinted moisturizer for a little extra glow.
Botanical Kinetics Energizing Eye Creme:
I keep this eye creme with me at all times to dab on a little throughout the day, especially in the colder months when my eyes need extra little sips of moisture.
Come winter in Minnesota, my life is basically a Hand Relief graveyard. I keep one at my desk at work, my desk at home, by my bed, in my bag and one in my car because there’s nothing worse than dry, scratchy, catch-on-everything hands!
LAURA, DIGITAL DESIGNER
Since it’s very cold in Minnesota, I love coming home and burning my favorite Aveda candle. At night and every morning, I slather on Hand Relief to save my hands from cracking and a little bit of Lip Saver. Lip Saver locks in a ton of moisture and is really rich. Lastly, I have fine hair, so for volume at the root, I always use Invati Advanced Scalp Revitalizer on my scalp. I love the invigorating zing!
HEATHER, DIGITAL STRATEGY DIRECTOR
The Botanical Kinetics Exfoliating Crème Cleanser is my favorite daily exfoliator. I use it to start the day, and it pairs great with the Botanical Kinetics Toning Mist, another fave!
ANNIE, EDITORIAL DIRECTOR
I used to have an oily scalp, but I started using Pramãsana Purifying Scalp Cleanser, which gives me a deep clean. I think it helps get rid of buildup that may cause irritation. The Botanical Kinetics Deep Cleansing Clay Masque is my best friend. That I bathe with once a week.
I have oily skin so I have to moisturize a lot to keep my skin from deciding to take matters into its own hands. And I always prep with Botanical Kinetics Purifying Gel Cleanser — it gets my skin squeaky clean and smells like waking up in a bed of herbs.
EVA, HAIR COLOR SPECIALIST
I ran out of my most-used products at the same time! I can’t live without these four products. Tulasāra Renew Morning Creme and Wedding Masque Overnight are part on my daily routine. I call Wedding Masque my magic balm.
Outer Peace Acne Relief Pads are perfect to help keep my random breakouts under control. I swipe over my skin at night after cleansing, and I love the aroma and the gentle wintergreen-derived salicylic acid.
Pure-Formance Thickening Paste is another fave. Even though I have thick hair, this product gives me the perfect texture and hold. It’s from our men’s line but I am obsessed with the aroma; it’s the perfect blend of vetiver, lavender, and spearmint.
