Not only is the desert our home, it’s our muse—and one of our favorite things to share with others. So we dreamed up five ways to experience its magic from your very own zip code. Enjoy!
The desert smells so. freaking. good. But don’t take our word for it—form your own opinion with the help of our Prickly Pear Candle. Made to burn as bright as the sun, this clean-burning, soy candle carries the crisp, floral scent of desert romance in full bloom. Want to take the same aroma on-the-go? Our Prickly Pear Hair + Body Perfume has you covered.
Honestly, we eat this smoothie bowl for breakfast at least twice a week. Its main ingredient, dragon fruit, is one of our favorite desert finds. Why? It grows like magic upon climbing cacti and offers a delightful taste (think: kiwi and pear mixed.) Plus, it’s rich in antioxidants and enzymes that help seal moisture within the hair, making it the perfect hero ingredient for our all-new Cactus Fruit 3-in-1 Styling Cream!
Try it for yourself:
Dragon Fruit Smoothie Bowl
1 cup frozen dragon fruit
¼ cup frozen mango
Splash of coconut water
Empty dragon fruit, mango, and coconut water into a blender and mix until desired consistency is reached. Pour into a bowl, top with granola or fresh fruit, and enjoy!
Tip: If you’re feeling fancy, try serving your smoothie in a scooped out papaya.
Want to feel desert at your fingertips—literally? Enter our Monsoon Moisture Mask, an intensely hydrating formula infused with a long list of desert botanicals, including smoothing prickly pear seed oil and strengthening cactus flower extract. Just like monsoon season, this mask soaks dry hair like the desert after a downpour, improving texture, elasticity, and manageability. Bonus: It emanates the fresh, earthy scent of arid land after rain.
By now, you probably know we are deeply inspired by the rhythm of the sun. Heck, we're even named after it—dawn, afternoon, evening. The sun’s bright rays bring the desert to life, and thankfully, it's one treasure we all share. If you’re ever in need of a quick desert fix, simply walk outside and turn your face in its direction—post-sunscreen, of course!
Desert ASMR, anyone? Filled with the sound of delicate bird chirps and ever-so-slight wind, this video will transport you with the push of the play button. Let its soft noise lull you into a deep state of meditation, accompanied by the words of a Dae mantra. This one seems particularly fitting: I deserve to slow down and enjoy this moment.
