With everything flipped upside down because of a global pandemic, our emotions are worn on our sleeve, and we connect to our world on a more emotional level. That also means that our focus has shifted from merely looking our best to feel our best. We don’t just want products that make us look great – we use them to calm our spirits and provide us with moments of much-needed me time. Welcome to the new normal and the world of comfort beauty.
