Jenni Kayne Essentials

I'm counting down the days until we can walk about safely and and resume normal life and wear cute outfits to actually go places. I have a whole list of pieces I can't wait to parade around in... and the fact that the weather will be warm is even more exciting.

Two of those items are this perfect transitional knit, the Jenni Kane Everyday Sweater, and this giant classic woven beach bag, which is an ideal carry-all that transcends seasons (in my humble opionion), although looks particularly cute in the spring and summertime.

Remember that you can always get 20% off your order with my Jenni Kayne promo code Helene20. Plus you'll receive her beautiful book, Pacific Natural, as a gift with purchase when you spend $150 and over.

Below are some products that I love and wholeheartedly recommend.



1. Eve Lom Gel Balm Cleanser - A lovely, luxurious-feeling cleanser that's super gentle and leaves your skin feeling fresh and clear.

2. Erno Laszlo Oil Wash - A wonderful makeup-removing pre-cleanse.

3. Erno Laszlo Black Mud Bar - The most gentle dirt-sucking cleanser that will leave pores squeaky clean and skin über soft.


1. Caudalie Beauty Elixir - it's not a cult product for nothing. Keep this at your desk, in your bag, in you medicine cabinet. It's an instant skin boost as a toner, it's the perfect makeup setting spray, and it's an instant refresher throughout the day.

2. Herbivore Rose Hybiscus Hydrating Mist - this is a really pure and lovely soothing rose mist.

3. Mario Badescu Final Spray with Aloe, Herbs & Rosewater - another great rose mist, and super quenching too with the aloe. Can't beat this price point either.


1. Tata Harper Elixir Vitae Serum Wrinkle Solution - This is a STEEP investment, but if you have the means and are looking for a big time skincare indulgence, this is one of the most luxurious products I've ever put on my skin and it loves every second of it.

2. BeautyBio Nightly Retinol + Peptide Anti-Aging Serum - I haven't tried a BeautyBio product my skin didn't love and their retinol options are wonderful.

3. Ole Henriksen Truth Serum - An incredibly gentle and lovely vitamin C serum that will give your skin a glowy boost in the morning.


1. The Ordinary 100% Organic Col-Pressed Rosehip Oil - I would truly recommend any product from The Ordinary, but this organic rosehip oil is particularly wonderdul. It's so soothing and hydrating, and you just can't beat the price point.

2. Josie Maran Skin Dope Argan Oil + CBD - I'm a big believer of CBD skincare and my skin adores argan oil. This gentle oil helps calm things down if you have blemish-prone skin. It's a gorgeous product.

3. The Ordinary Retinol 0.5% in Squalane - Probably my favorite product from The Ordinary. It's SUPER cheap and the retinol concentration is perfect. Has helped me retain bounciness and noticeably minimized fine lines. It's a must.


1. Farmacy Better Daze Ahead CBD Moisturizer - Another CBD-infused skincare product. This moisturizer is ultra-soothing, whether you're breaking out or are looking to retain your skin's clearness. You'll wake up with nary a red post, feeling hydrated and glowy.

2. Belif True Cream Moisturizing Bomb - A wonderful thirst-quenching product that's ultra gentle. The texture is lovely and absorbs beautifully into the skin.

3. Dr. Roebucks No Worries Hydrating Face Moisturizer - This is a hyaluronic acid moisturizer and it is the bomb. You'll wake up with a glow and clear skin.


1. Belif Moisturizing Eye Bomb - This is a gorgeous eye cream with a beautiful texture. Great for nighttime but also layers great under makeups for the daytime.

2. Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado - This cream is RICH. I would recommend it for nighttime use only, as it's quite heavy, but will keep your under-eye area plump.

3. Supergoop Bright-Eyed 100% Mineral Eye Cream - This guy is a total game-changer in the eye category! Not only is it luminous and will make you look awake, but it's got SPF 40 so the most sensitive area of your face is protected from the rays to slow down the aging process.


1. LaNeige Water Sleeing Mask - One of my favorites of all time. You wake up looking clear and super fresh.

2. Tata Harper Clarifying AHA + BHA Mask - Your skin will thank you for this. It'll feel so soft.

3. Keihl's Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Mask - If you've got some flare-ups, this is a great mask to help everything calm down.

1. Erno Laszlo Pore Cleansing Clay Mask - This is a super purifying exfoliating mask. One of my favorites for when i've just stepped off a plane.

2. Glow Recipe Watermelon + AHA Sleeping Mask - Wear overnight if you want glowy, bouncy skin in the morning.

3. Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask - Will suck the dirt out of your pores and leave your skin feeling like a baby's bottom.



1. Ilia Super Serum Skin Tint - It's not just a skin tint, it's also got a bunch of skincare ingredients. Double whammy. It's actually pretty medium coverage for a tint and it's essentially glow in a bottle.

2. Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer - One of my all-time favorite products. It's light coverage, just enough to cover minor imperfections but still makes your skin look like actual skin. It provides the perfect dose of glow without overdoing it, and it absorbs so beautifully you don't even feel like you've got anything on your skin.

3. It Cosmetics CC Cream - Do you want to look airbrushed without feeling cakey? Buy this and never look back.

1. Ilia True Skin Serum Concealer - Probably my favorite concealer ever. Doesn't crease AT ALL under the eyes, which is my problem area. One of the only concealers I've ever tried that I can say that about.

2. Lilah b. Divine Duo Lip & Cheek - I'm obsessed with this little pebble of pigment. It packs a big punch with only a little product and provides a fresh glow and a cute stained lip. I love a multitasking item.

3. Kevyn Aucoin - Hello GLOW! Applies so gorgeously, blends perfect and never leaves any "chunks" on the skin like some highlighters do.

1. Laura Mercier Face Illuminator - Sweep this all over your face for the most subtle flattering shimmer that will make you look like you're glowing from within.

2. Milk Makeup Holographic Stick - Another multitasking guy, which i'm obsessed with. I use this in the color Stardust on my cheeks and lips, and sometimes the eyes. The pink shade is perfect and the iridescence catches the light beautifully, giving another dimension to the finish. It's also surprisingly long-lasting.

3. Artis Brush set - These are my favorite makeup applicators. You need very little product and they give foundation an airbrushed finish, they buff in blush seamlessly, and they're wonderful for spreading eyeshadow in a way that looks like you did it with your fingers, but better.


1. Charlotte Tilbury Eyes to Mesmerize Cream Eyeshadow - For the most sensual bedroom eyes you can every imagine.

2. Laura Mercier Caviar Sticks - These sticks are the perfect product. Not only are they multitasking (eyes, lips, cheeks), but the color options are beauts, they're super long-wearing, and incredibly versatile.

3. Ilia Limitless Lash Mascara - Not only is the formula exceptional, but there are various bristle sides on the one brush, which is a total game-changer.


1. Armani Rouge D'Armani Matte Lipstick - Ultra long-lasting, high pigment, luxe lipsticks.

2. Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick - The formula of this lipstick is gorgeous. The finish is matte but it will never dry out your lips.

3. Sephora Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick - Probably the best bang for your buck ever. These don't come off unless you actually remove the color with something that's meant for that.


1. Virtue Recovery Shampoo - Makes hair shiny and bouncy while infusing the body with moisture.

2. Virtue Recovery Conditioner - Perfect complement to the shampoo.

3. Christophe Robin Aloe Vera Shampoo - I only have good hair days after I use this shampoo. Super hydrating if you have damaged hair.

1. Christophe Robin Aloe Vera Leave-In Hair Mist - A great detangler that won't weigh the hair down once it's dried.

2. Shu Uemura Glaze Treatment for Colored Hair - A very impactful mask for hair in need of nourishment.

3. Shu Uemura Essence Absolue Universal Balm - I love adding this to my wet har after showering to keep flyaways tame for a dose of hydration. The best part is that it doubles as a hand cream.

1. Ouai Shine Spray - Not only does this smell amazing, but it's also an instant boost for your ends. I LOVE this guy.

2. Briogeo Volume Spray - I spray this all over my roots before I let my hair air dry and it gives them a little lift instead of falling flat.

3. Verb Ghost Oil - Add this gorge oil to your ends while wet and they'll feel healthy and look shiny when dry.

1. Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo - Smells delightful AND works wonders.

2. Verb Dry Shampo - Also very great with good smells.

3. IGK Dry Shampoo - Works great and adds awesome texture.
