I have a teenage daughter and it’s often funny for me to listen to her when she tells me she needs something. Teenagers today often confuse the word “need” with “want”, but to tell them otherwise is nearly impossible. Have you tried telling a 17-year old that she doesn’t need the latest iPhone?

But this got me thinking- maybe it’s not just teenagers. We all claim to have items that we just can’t live without. I couldn’t live without dry shampoo and, if you’ve ever seen me at 7 AM, I need coffee.

At AVEDA, we consider the items that we need our “Essentials.” These must-haves are the top-rated products as chosen by YOU. This month we are celebrating 2018 and the things we just can’t live without. For every purchase of an AVEDA Essential in January or February, you’ll be entered to win ALL 8 OF THEM ($238 VALUE!).

What are your essentials? Whether you simply must have a piece of chocolate every day or a morning meditation session, AVEDA knows there are some things you just need. And you know what? I totally get it!
