Good to

the last drop:

our winter empties

Aveda employees share

which products they ALWAYS finish

Aveda employees have access to tons of great products, from new launches to classic favourites and we all have our top-tier favourites — the products we always use down to the last crucial drop. Now, we’re sharing those secrets with you! Check out our wintertime #avedaempties.




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 moisturiser 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 Moisturising Oil is my favourite 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 energising 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.




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 moisturiser 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!

Since it’s very cold in Minnesota, I love coming home and burning my favourite 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!



The Botanical Kinetics Exfoliating Crème Cleanser is my favourite daily exfoliator. I use it to start the day, and it pairs great with the Botanical Kinetics Toning Mist, another fave!



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 moisturise 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.



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.
