the likelihood of one of us getting stranded on a desert island is pretty slim to none. however, the thought of becoming the next gilligan made us wonder… if we had to leave everything behind, what would be the one item we couldn’t survive without? sadly, the thought of having to choose just ONE gave us mad anxiety, so we decided to pick three instead…

after careful consideration, here’s what made the cut…

Brittany’s desert items



this might make me a little vain, but i’m not planning to look 10 years older by the time my rescue crew arrives. when it comes to youthful skin, it’s all about collagen. i recommend collagen supplements to every client i see. i’ve even convinced the entire staff where i practice to start taking it, and have witnessed their skin change before my eyes. as we age, our collagen production slows down, leading to wrinkles, sagging skin, bone loss, etc. basically, it’s the glue that holds our bodies together and the key for maintaining youthful skin

Replenix antioxidant tinted SPF 50

stranded or not, i could never leave the house without protection. i like to keep my skin makeup-free during the day, only using this tinted SPF for coverage. it blends well with all skin types and gives you a glow like you’ve just had a HydraFacial. it contains zinc oxide, a mineral that sits on top of the skin and helps to scatter and absorb UVA & UVB rays, and is the safest and most effective sunscreen ingredient

SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic

if Rylie and i were stranded together with only one bottle between the two of us, it might end our friendship. this stuff has helped tremendously my hyper-pigmentation and evening out my skin tone. it’s also a powerful antioxidant serum that protects your skin from environmental damage caused by free radicals

Foxbrim Peptide Complex Moisturizer

because of my dry skin type, i could not survive without a nourishing moisturizer. my skin would literally shrivel into a prune if left alone on a desert island. i’ve fallen in love with this one because it contains powerful hydrating and moisturizing ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, jojoba oil, aloe vera, etc. as well as peptides for stimulating collagen production. it’s lightweight, easy to manipulate, and keeps your skin feeling soft and supple throughout the day

Teddie Organic Rose Water

a couple spritz’s of this stuff and your skin is back to life! it’s a def must-have if stranded. i carry this with me wherever i go for a quick pick-me-up throughout the day. it can be used as a face mist as well as a toner. it’s made from organic rose petals, which is a natural astringent. it also helps balance your skin’s pH, remove excess oil and dirt, tighten pores, and reduce redness and irritation due to its anti-inflammatory properties

SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic

she’s right, it would be war if we were left with one bottle between the two of us. this is hands-down the most powerful antioxidant serum i’ve ever used. basically, having this stuff on your skin is like having muhammad ali in the ring with you- you couldn’t ask for a better fighter when it comes to protecting your skin against free radicals
