How VP Employees Like to Unwind at the End of the Day

We may sprint at Vital Proteins during the day – it’s how we churn out all the cool collagen products you see on Instagram! – but at night, finding time to practice self-care tops our to-do list every single time. Just ask these 11 VP employees.

Whether they’re preparing a warm mug of our NEW Blueberry Moon Milk Collagen Latte™ (editor’s note: This is my go-to!) or fancy themselves an at-home face mask, our Vital superstars will inspire you to put yourself first this evening. You’ll be happier and feel more refreshed because of it. 

Ready, set, time to relax!

How VP Employees Like to Unwind at the End of the Day

blueberry moon milk collagen latte

“I’m Type A, which means I can’t shut my brain off, so our Blueberry Moon Milk Collagen Latte™ is the best because it forces me to calm down! I drink it right before I take my dog out for his last walk then we both get tucked in and go to sleep.”

-Amanda Ford, trade promotion specialist

“Every Sunday night I use The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution to prepare my skin for a new week along with a hair mask to show my hair some TLC.”

-Miranda Gardley, content producer associate

“How I unwind after a long day: Cocokind face mask, hot tea and Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.”

-Emma Uhrick, social media community associate 

luxury candle

“I always keep a ‘splurge’ candle on my nightstand (usually Voluspa or Diptyque brand) to light when I read before bed. It’s a luxurious treat that I look forward to lighting at the end of a long day.”

-Sarah Schuh, digital copywriter

“I love winding down by taking a yoga class followed by a hot shower. If I have time, I’ll usually do some sort of face mask. I love Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay or Cocokind’s Chlorophyll Mask!”

-Paige Pontius, retail marketing manager

“For the past three nights, I’ve been making myself a Blueberry Moon Milk Collagen Latte™ as Below Deckreruns play in my apartment. I put two scoops in my favorite mug, add hot water then top off with almond milk. It’s what I look forward to!”

-Grace Gavilanes, writer-editor

facial steamer

“I love using my Facial Steamer from Vanity Planet. Best thing I’ve ever purchased! It’s relaxing and helps clear up and moisturize my skin.”

-Amber Karadsheh, purchasing coordinator

“I love curling up on the couch watching The Mandalorian on Disney+ after applying my night-time skincare essentials, which includes Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Oil, Kiehl’s Calendula Cerum-Infused Water Cream, and the final touch: Kiehl's Avocado Eye Cream. If I really want to treat myself, I use my gua sha tool.”

-Roxy Popkiewicz, social media coordinator

bright and easy face mask

“I love wrapping up my day by doing a quick, at-home facial with Ursa Major's Bright & Easy 3-Minute Flash Mask followed by Cocokind's Chia Facial Oil.”

-Hannah Tate, retail marketing associate

 “Well I don't use any fancy products, but I live by CeraVe's Moisturizing Cream in the winter to save my skin from the Chicago winter! I use it every night before I go to bed!”

-Jordan Nussbaum, graphic designer 

“I love to do a face mask and brew a cup of Egyptian Licorice tea.”

-Olivia Pelaez, education coordinator
