CEO and co-founder of skin-care brand Summer Fridays, Marianna Hewitt, is not only up there on our list of favorite influencers, but she’s also one of our most admired entrepreneurs. That being said, whenever we find out what she’s doing, wearing or using, we may or may not be taking notes on the sidelines. In a recent article for Harper’s Bazaar, the creative dished on everything she’s been loving these days, from her product regulars to her wellness staples, and we’re walking away from the read with some new additions to our collection.
Admitting she’s a sucker for body-care products, Hewitt says, “I’m such a junkie for having so many different things, and being an influencer, I feel really fortunate that I get to try so many products.” However, more products doesn’t always mean better. “I have very sensitive skin on my body, so through and through I’m a Dove girl—Unscented Normal Body Wash ($10),” she continues. “I refill it on Amazon, and it just works the best for me. There’s also an AHA Body Exfoliant ($25) from Zitsticka that smells like peppermint and feels so good on my skin.”
Before Hewitt jumps into the shower, dry brushing is on tap, and her go-to (after much testing) is Dr. Barbara Sturm Body Brush ($35). “In the shower, I also use Hanni’s Shave Pillow ($22), which is a like shave gel in a stick form, and you can use before shaving to just, like, soften everything.”
Everyone is struggling with dry hands right now, but Hewitt has beat the dehydration with OUAI Hand Creme ($24). For hand soap, it’s Byredo Hand Wash ($68) in Suede. “It looks really chic sitting in your bathroom too,” she adds. But, hydration doesn’t stop past the hands—Hewitt brings the moisture all the way up to her underarms, and she uses Megababe Beachy Pits ($14) to help her out. “I love Megababe—it’s such a great brand—and Beachy Pits is the one that I wear. During the pandemic, I actually switched. It was at the time where I was like, ‘Okay, I’m not going to be around people,’ so that’s when I officially transitioned to natural deodorant. I’ve tested and tried basically every natural deodorant you can think of, and this is my favorite one.”
