The entire collection costs $44, comes packaged in a decorative box, and is available for purchase at Sheglam.

  2. Cult perfume brand The laboratory has joined the Metropolitan Museum of Art on a new limited edition scented candle. Hand cast Laurel 62 ($92) is formulated with bay leaf, rosemary, eucalyptus, and thyme, but its label appeals as much as its scent. It features an unfinished nature drawing by Neo-Impressionist Henri-Edmond Cross, a watercolor-on-graphite work currently housed at the Met.

  3. Teva, known for its iconic sandals, has launched a new waterproof hiking boot made from eco-friendly materials, the brand says.

What we bought this week

Amazon’s Prime Early Access sale this week brought deals across all product categories, including fitness, tech, and wellness. Here’s what our employees bought for themselves while covering the event:

I stocked up on my favorite Ouidad Shampoo and Conditionerand i have this too fake olive tree I watched (which I learned from TikTok, of course). I watched the tree all day and when the price fell below $100 for just an hour I jumped on it. Since adopting my cat Wanda, my dreams of being a real mother plant have been put on hold (she tends to eat the leaves), so this faux tree is a delicious compromise. – Zoe Malin, associated update publisher

As someone who constantly needs a massage, the idea of ​​buying a massage gun has always intrigued me, but I was put off by the price. During Prime’s early access sale this week, I saw the Theragun Prime was on sale for $187 (down from $299) and jumped at the deal. The brand claims that the massage gun is ergonomically designed, comes with four attachments and has five massage speeds which can also be controlled via the Therabody app. This should come in handy after hours of poring over, scanning offers for our readers, and later this week after a Barre session at my favorite local studio, the Integration in Brooklyn.

I thought about getting my dad an Apple Watch because he recently started jogging – he likes to tell me how far he’s gone, so I thought he’d like to track his stats. Also, I like the security features of the Series 8 a, especially for the elderly. So when I saw the Prime offer, I got one for him. — Leah Ginsberg, editor-in-chief
