Brightening Facial Treatment
We’re all about expert advice at 213Deli. I’ve been a beauty junkie and executive in the industry for nearly 20 years now. I fall all the way in love with brands and products that really work, and I spend every day of my life testing and trying everything that launches. It’s my hope that you trust 213Deli to recommend the best-of-the-best and rest easy knowing that you don’t have to try it all because we’ve done it for you.

We also love to partner with experts and hear their take on what the best is and why. We’re

beauty pod out there, is co-hosted by gal pals and beauty experts Sara Tan and Kirbie Johnson.



PLUS, everyone who purchases The Well Traveled Collection is entered to win EVERY PRODUCT IN EVERY 213Deli x Gloss Angeles COLLECTION! That’s 15 products worth over $425! Three winners will be announced December 8th at 5pm PST.

vertical, which touched millions of consumers. 

She has tested thousands of beauty products and produced over 500 beauty segments and interviewed everyone from Jennifer Aniston and Viola Davis to Kim Kardashian West and Machine Gun Kelly. Kirbie is a die-hard beauty junkie and has been a featured host on Freeform and an expert on The Today Show, The Doctors and
the BBC. She’s also one of the most fun girls in beauty and has thus emceed events for Create

Elle, Glamour, The Hollywood Reporter, The Cut, Byrdie and more. She was just featured in
Vogue.com for her utterly epic Halloween costume inspired by Doja Cat’s Schiaparelli look by
Pat McGrath.

What Kirbie loves most about her work is getting to interview people and pulling back the curtain
on how beauty products work (or don’t) and interacting with an audience.

Sara Tan became the Beauty Director at Refinery29 after spending seven years as the Senior
Fashion and Beauty editor at Bustle. She’s a beauty junkie and writer who has contributed to all
of the women’s and lifestyle publications that matter including Allure, InStyle, People, Parents,
Coveteur, BRIDES, and Women’s Health and more.

She spends most of her time searching for the latest skincare, makeup, and style trends, interviewing celebrities and experts on their favorite products and routines, and reporting on the newest launches you should know about.

In 2019 Kirbie and Sara decided to put all of their DMs, emails and text messages out into the
world as a podcast, and Gloss Angeles was born. They met in 2017 and have spent a majority
of their time together ever since attending events, master classes, press trips, and over-the-top
launch parties for beauty brands, giving them plenty of stories and secrets to share.

Gloss Angeles is an “edu-tainment” podcast, combining their passion for beauty with their love
of Los Angeles and celebrity culture. For the first time ever, they are making their famous
holiday gift guide shoppable exclusively via 213Deli. All month long, we’re dropping trios of
amazing products from the best brands. Be sure to sign up for texts so you don’t miss out.
Every drop is an exclusive and limited edition collection

So now that you know that you’re getting expert advice, let’s talk about skincare. Skincare is where expert advice really matters. Let’s be honest, if you buy an eyeshadow and decide you don’t like it, you’re not out much time, money or energy. But skincare is an investment, and the consequences of trying something no good can be lasting.

Whether you’re into a Korean inspired 15 step routine or like to keep it simple, hydration is the
key in any good skincare routine. Kirbie and Sara have curated the Well Traveled Collection
inspired by their tried and true skincare savers that deliver extra hydration. It’s perhaps easiest
to notice how dehydrated your skin is when you’re traveling, especially if you’re on a long haul

The Well Traveled Collection includes three of our favorite skincare staples. 

The Summer Fridays Rich Cushion Cream + the travel sized Summer Friday’s Jet Lag Mask + 111Skin Rose
Gold Facial Brightening Treatment.

“The key to keeping your skin in check while traveling? Products that won’t add any more stress. We have been longtime fans of Summer Fridays whose first launch ever was the cult- favorite Jet Lag Mask. It’s a great skin pick-me-up with ingredients like glycerin and antioxidants. Plus, you can use it in a variety of ways, not just as a mask.
The brand’s newest launch, the Rich Cushion Cream Plumping Moisturizer, supports your moisture barrier and includes chamomile and allantoin to calm your skin too — anyone whose skin can’t get enough moisture will love this! Both have the National Eczema Association’s Seal of Acceptance so you can use them care-free.

And for when you’re traveling for a big event, having 111Skin’s Rose Gold Facial Brightening
Treatment is a total treat. We’ve been told by various makeup artists throughout our careers that
they keep these in their kits to get their client relaxed and ready for makeup application before
red carpets, and we love it because it gives instant results when you need them. Ingredients like
colloidal gold, peptides and rose demask tighten and plump the skin while reducing
inflammation. You can use the leftover essence on your skin by patting it in. Plus, the mask
itself is biodegradable.” Kirbie & Sara

Whether you’re traveling, prepping for a big event or just transitioning into Fall and Winter skincare routines, these three products are life savers!!

And if you are traveling or thinking about traveling, do not start planning without visiting Salt &
Wind. Salt & Wind Travel is a food-first boutique travel company. They share travel tips and
provide travel planning services in some of the most interesting culinary regions. You can join

travel in good taste…or just make their recipes at home when you need to impress your guests!

I use their recipes constantly and dream about the last trip I took with them to Mexico where we had private dinners in the most epic restaurants and boutique hotels. It was a once in a lifetime experience as are all of their amazing trips.
