What was your favorite part of our first-ever virtual festival? We’ll start first … wait, how do we decide? Is it the crowd-pleaser self-hypnosis session or Kourt’s personal fave, the muscle testing tutorial? Doesn’t matter—after watching each interactive conversation, you’ll leave with equally favored insight and new information to continue to live your best life.
To give you a sense of what we’re talking about, we’re sharing some highlights from our Poosh Your Wellness event that debuted on September 26, 2020, and lucky for you … you get a peek at the day’s festivities.

What: How to Detox Your Shower Routine in Partnership with J.R. Watkins
Who: Friend of Poosh and clean beauty guru, Geri Hirsch + an expert from J.R. Watkins
What’d you miss?: The ultimate clean product swaps to enhance your shower regimen. Time in the shower should be your designated “me time” (especially now, given we’re all working from home). So whether you start or end your day under the spout, it’s important to take a moment to embrace and welcome self-reflection.
This is why we recommend using a safe and clean in-shower essential like J.R. Watkins’ Sleep Aromatherapy In-Shower Mist to truly reap the benefits of your alone time and enter a spa-like sanctuary in the comfort of your home.

Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip 5G allows you to achieve (and share) spectacular snaps that are always worth the IG feed. Its Flex Mode makes it so you can see how an image will look once it’s already filtered thanks to its breakthrough camera with high-definition 4K video capabilities. You can take pictures, shoot videos, and connect with friends hands-free from virtually any angle with its Hideaway Hinge and broaden your vision with crisp, beautiful Ultra Wide shots. The perfect selfie is all in the palm of your hand with Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip 5G. Watch how the Poosh friends use the sleek phone in action below.
