Nowadays around 3 p.m., rather than reach for my third cup of coffee (I know, I know!), I spritz my complexion with this elixir, and breathe in deeply. Fig + Yarrow Complexion Water is redefining what it means to be a slump buster. Anytime I need a pick-me-up—bad day, mid-day, early mornings—it’s my go-to.
The luxurious water contains neroli and rose essential oils and waters, balanced perfectly with sandalwood. Neroli oil, which is made from orange blossoms, is pretty hard to come by. It can be used on skin to help it stay firm and radiant, and its aroma can help relieve stress. So anytime I come close to a product with this precious ingredient in it, I feel the need to make the experience spiritual and ritualistic.

Not only do a few pumps help make my dry skin feel hydrated and more even, but the aroma-therapeutic properties of the mist help boost my mood so that I can push past that afternoon slump. Plus, smelling orange essential oils can help keep you calm and stress-free.
While it clocks in at $44, the bottle is like the energizer bunny–it keeps going and going and going, making it more cost-effective than that $4 latte in only a matter of days (and leaving your skin a heck of a lot glowier in the meantime).
