The Edit: Here’s what Dawnie Marie can’t live without right now

There’s something exhilarating about finding out who people are following and what they’re actually adding to their carts. And if you’re anything like Dawnie, you are easily captivated by shiny Instagram ads. (We sincerely apologize for the skin care ads you will be served.) 


Dawnie Marie is a professional people pleaser aka office manager by day and an all around creative by night! Here are her curated top picks.


Skin Care & Beauty


Biossance Squalane + Antioxidant Cleansing Oil: Gets rid of all the gunk while leaving your face feeling smooth and moisturized.


Black Girl Sunscreen: Lightweight? No white cast? Made with melanin in mind? Sign me up for some much needed SPF! 


Versed Skin Soak Moisturizer: Even the dryness of the LA desert does not stand a chance against this moisturizer.

Hyper Clear Brightening Clearing Vitamin C Serum: Don't let dark marks stop you from glowing this summer. Stay #goldenhourready with this skin clearing serum.



Good Molecules Yerba Mate Eye Cream:Give those tired Zoom call eye bags the kick they need. No, I did not wake up like this. But dammit I look good. 


Milk Kush Mascara: People won't help but focus on your gorg eyes now.



Pattern Intensive Conditioner for Tight Textures: Even my bleached 4c coils love this conditioner. 


MegaBabe Thigh Saver: Thighs out all Hot Girl Summer--made possible with this anti-chafe formula!
