Jeanie (Annaleigh Ashford)
Pretty Monsters Spearmint & Mandarin lip soother $4 at prettymonstersnyc.com
"Sometimes my breath is not so good, and the mint scent helped mask when I wasn't able to brush my teeth. It also calmed my nerves a bit—it's rough being the slum goddess of the Lower East Side and pregnant."
VMV Hypoallergenics Grandma Minnie's Oil's Well Nurturing Do-It-Oil, $35, at vmvhypoallergenics.com
"I used this to treat dry skin on my legs, arms and stretching belly. My hair has been getting tangled lately, so I used it there too. It absorbs quickly, feels light, and made my skin soft and smooth. I'm excited that I can also use it on the baby for rashes. It smells like coconuts, which mentally transported me to Honolulu."
Sabon Organic Foot Cream, $15, at Sabon, locations throughout the city; visit sabonnyc.com
Guilden Tree terra-cotta pumice foot scrubber, $9, at Sustainable NYC
"My heels have become dry and cracked from the springtime heat and wearing sandals. I'm also about to pop a baby out, so my feet have really been killing me. The pumice is meant to be used on dry feet, which worked well for me since I don't have time to be washing them. And the cream was like magic! My dry heels became soft and supple."
