Here in the eXO Skin Simple New York City headquarters it’s been a long winter. (Although, let’s face it, when does winter ever feel particularly short?!) And while we still have weeks to go until the weather is reliably warmer again, we’re eagerly anticipating a much-needed Spring Break.
Ahead, we’re sharing three sweet Spring Break options—and what we’ll be packing for each.
The Classic Tropical Escape
Where we’re going: For most of us, “Spring Break” = warm weather getaway. This year, we’re eyeing an escape to Harbour Island, Bahamas, a destination known for its stunning pink-tinted beaches, cerulean waters, endless pineapple fields and elevated, classic colonial vibes.
Where we’re staying: The Pink Sands Resort, a subtly sophisticated retreat that ticks the box for location—it’s nestled along a pristine stretch of beach—while also offering elevated dining and a luxe, laid-back Bahamian vibe.
What we’re packing: The eXO Duet, which packages together eXO Face—our classic, versatile face moisturizer and eXO Body—our fast-absorbing, luscious body lotion—so we have head-to-toe exosome coverage. We’ll also bring along this colorful sundress, an oversized sun hat, and this page-turner by Ronan Farrow.
The Snowy Adventure
Where we’re going: Spring skiing is tough to beat; one of our all-time favorite wintertime destinations is the beautiful town of Telluride, Colorado. Here, classic mining architecture is juxtaposed against rugged, hulking mountains, creating a truly authentic Western experience— with challenging, gorgeous ski terrain to boot.
Where we’re staying: The New Sheridan Hotel is situated right in Telluride’s charming main drag, plus features one of the city’s most popular restaurants. For serious skiiers, the Inn at Lost Creek offers one of the best ski-on, ski-off locations in town.
What we’re packing: eXO Face Lab Jar — Bio.digital Moisturizing Cream is our lushest and most deluxe moisturizer, ideal for soothing wind-chapped skin that has been exposed to the elements. This bright green parka makes a statement both on and off the slopes; we’ll channel the local culture with this classic-but-cool cowboy hat.
The NYC Staycation
Where we’re going: Alas, sometimes hopping on a plane and taking a trip isn’t in the cards for team eXO—but we’re fine hunkering down in our home city for a sweet stay. (And if you don’t live in New York City, consider this your invitation to make the trip!)
Where we’re staying: For classic uptown elegance, you cannot beat the iconic Carlyle Hotel, which is steps away from Central Park and home to the city’s most iconic watering hotel, Bemelmans Bar (home to superior live music throughout the week, may we add). If we’re in the mood for a hipper, cozy downtown vibe, we’ll hightail it over to The Bowery Hotel, which boasts surprisingly spacious rooms and a sweet lounge replete with cozy fireplace and impeccable people-watching opportunities.
What we’re packing: We’re bringing our honey with us—which means we’re packing The eXO Couple, our his-and-hers skincare set featuring eXO Face and eXO Men. Given their modest heel, these mules are perfect for a dinner out in New York City—allowing us to walk for blocks without breaking our stride—while this classic camel coat will keep us oh-so-toasty (and undeniably chic) on our trek!
