If you’re like us, you’ve probably wondered what famous people add to their carts. Not the JAR brooch and Louis XV chair, but the hand sanitizer and the electric toothbrush. We asked Rebecca Hessel Cohen, the founder of LoveShackFancy, about the candles, socks, and bronzer she can’t live without. 

I carry two phones with me at all times because I’m crazy and always afraid that a phone is going to die. I bought this because of the color and because my husband told me it was the best one. It actually works really, really well. It’s a good size and super reliable. One of my two phones is usually always charging, or dead, because I’m very reliant on them. I don’t use a computer — one phone is for all my photos and social media, then I have my email and everything else on my other phone. I try to charge them whenever I can throughout the day — and, of course, I need to make sure the charger is charged, too.

I swear by this. I put it on every day in every season. Summer is my favorite season, and this gives me that summertime tan — and feeling — every day. On fair skin, like mine, sometimes bronzers are too strong and look way too yellow. This one gives my skin the perfect warmth. It’s a little pink, a little golden. Just a really nice glow that’s not too shiny or matte. It makes you look rested. It fixes hangover skin. It does everything. It’s almost like magic because it does so much.

Oh my God, these are the best. I always have at least three in my bag. I’m always on the go and they’re just like a quick burst of energy, I guess because you get a little bit of protein with the peanut butter and sugar with the chocolate. They’re so delicious. They’re not too high in calories or fat, and are also organic and gluten-free. One just wakes me up. I swear it does the same thing as my morning coffee, but without the caffeine. They’re the perfect pick-me-up and get me through the days.

My makeup artist Tracy Murphy introduced this mascara to me. Our goal is always “thick, thick, thick lashes” and this YSL mascara is absolutely the best for that. Tracy taught me how to apply it to get that gorgeous, full, crazy-thick look. Basically, you just apply a ton of layers and cake it on. Lots of layers for the top and the bottom lashes. I sometimes mix up the colors, too, like aubergine with black or brown. I play around with all of them. And the mascara doesn’t fall throughout the day; I don’t know why people keep using their mascara when it gives those little flakes under their eyes. This one lasts a long time: I apply it in the morning and it’s there until I take it off at night. I won’t leave home without applying. It’s a necessity.
