How Bougie Are The White Lotus Magnificence Routines?


The White Lotus is a wonderful present about horrible wealthy folks…what’s to not love? There’s the pristine Sicilian backdrop (yeah, yeah everybody actually did go to Italy final summer time), there’s thriller (two individuals are going to die ultimately!), and there’s Jennifer Coolidge (hilarity ensues). As a result of finally the lodge present is a whodunnit, each little element looks like a sneaky clue. For instance, why does Portia costume like a pirate hoarding a Beacon’s Closet bounty? Why is Daphne so aggressively comfortable? And the way do Ethan and Harper (performed by the Aubrey Plaza) have such nice pores and skin?

Properly, the latter isn’t precisely wrapped in thriller, because of a handful of loo scenes that reveal what’s objectively a excessive upkeep magnificence routine. I do know this as a result of, like all particular person given a two-second glimpse of a millionaire’s toilet, I paused and zoomed in. This little window into their skincare personalities revealed they’re model loyalists with a $700 routine. They aren’t precisely essentially the most skincare savvy (not a bottle of SPF to be discovered), however Harper does appear to understand a wholesome assortment of toners and therapy serums. Ethan, like Harper, additionally appears to have delicate pores and skin, what along with his delicate shave gel from Nivea and Harper’s mild cleansers. However general, how bougie is their magnificence routine? Let’s take a more in-depth look.

The Lodge Merchandise

Each lodge toilet is supplied with a number of complimentary toiletries and The White Lotus isn’t any totally different. Their model of selection seems to be Ortigia (they had been noticed within the grandpa’s room in one other episode), with Ortigia’s Room Essence Spray, hand cleaning soap, and bathe gel rounding out those I may spot in Ethan and Harper’s room. These are all extremely bougie in my guide.

Ethan’s Merchandise

I don’t imagine that is Ethan’s full routine. Even my husband (who was washing his face with hand cleaning soap after I met him) has a extra intensive routine. Nonetheless, simply three merchandise (save for toothpaste) had been on Ethan’s facet of the toilet counter: Kiehl’s cleanser, Kiehl’s Facial Gas moisturizer, and Nivea Males’s Delicate Shave Gel. These are all comparatively mid. Purged of persona, actually. It’s like he googled man + skincare and acquired the primary issues Googled confirmed him. On a bougie scale, these fall straight within the center. Considerably dear however critically bland.

Harper’s Merchandise

The state of her relationship could also be murky, however one factor’s clear is that Harper is a Clarins gal. She washes with not one, however two of their cleansers, swapping between Clarins Light Renewing Cleaning Mousse and Clarins Hydrating Light Foaming Cleanser. She additionally seems to be a fan of their hero product, Double Serum (a private favourite as a result of it hydrates rather well and at all times makes my pores and skin look glowy), and Clarins Hydra Essentiel—both the Silky Cream, Cooling Gel or Wealthy Cream (all three jars look the identical).

On the subject of toners, Harper has three in rotation: Enzo Laslo VTM Micro Essence, Peach and Lily The Good Acids Toner, and MAC Prep + Prime (which she would possibly simply use as a setting spray, who’s to say?) And talking of MAC, Harper additionally owns two MAC make-up compacts.

Rounding out Harper’s magnificence merchandise are three issues from Kiehl’s. Their Avocado Nourishing Hydration Masks, in addition to their traditional Avocado Eye Cream, and Midnight Restoration Focus. On a bougie scale of drugstore to Dyson, I’d say Harper’s routine is 2 clicks beneath the bougiest. Does she have costly style? Sure. Does she spend her cash correctly? Eh, she may do higher. One can hope that Daphne will impart the wonders of The Cream or Vintner’s Daughter to her. That’s, except Harper wasn’t one of many two visitors to kick the bucket.
