It features products for normal-to-dry skin including the Chamomile Foaming Cleanser, an all-natural aloe castile soap infused with essential oils; Rose Geranium Toner; Rose Geranium Face Moisturizer (1/2 oz.), the bestselling velvety moisturizer which helps smooth skin while reducing the signs of aging; and Eye Cream (1/4 oz.), which also works as a lip treatment and cold cream. The face kit costs $62.99 and is available at Hollybethorganics.com.

The seven by nine-inch pouch is entirely artisan-made and it comes in white or black with pom poms and embroidery in a range of colors. Get one for $88 at Dearkeaton.com.

BRAID INSPIRATIONS

Are you mystified by braids? Get a handle on your hair styling with a new book, “The Big Book of Braiding,” (Harper Design). Braids are more popular than ever and stylists at Bjorn Axen, the largest hairdressing academy in Sweden, helped put together a book that shows readers the ins and outs of braids. From the Dutch braid to the fishtail braid, the book offers step-by-step instructions, details and photographs showing you how to make the look your own. There are also modern takes on classic braid styles like the French braid or the side braid. The book is available for $19 at national booksellers.
