Skimm Her Life is a series in our weekly newsletter, Skimm Your Life, where awesome women share their favorite products. 

Weas-ily one of the coolest characters from the “Harry Potter” universe is here today to share her recs. Yep, we’ve got Bonnie Wright aka Ginny Weasley in the (Hogwarts) house. ICYMI: Bonnie’s also a Greenpeace ambassador, huge advocate for the environment, and now, a published author. She just dropped her book, “Go Gently,” which is all about living sustainably and nurturing yourself and Mother Earth. Read on for her picks…

Favorite “Harry Potter” memory…All my favorite ones are from The Burrow, the Weasley’s family home. I loved being a Weasley and all of those scenes are filled with such joy, comfort, and laughter for me.

Smartest purchase I’ve made recently…I just bought an Instant Pot. Not sure what took me so long, they’re great. I might even start cooking my own pet food too — we have five animals. 

Products I shop over and over again…[I]have religiously worn Marie Veronique’s tinted sunscreen for nearly seven years — it acts as a very light foundation and [has] SPF 30. Other essentials I am currently loving are: Negative UnderwearAlter Ego chocolate, and Pangaia’s colorful track pant sets.

Self-care product I swear by…Lesse Bioactive Face Mask. My skincare routine is very simple, and this mask feels like I [had] a facial but from the comfort of my own home.

Favorite sustainable swap or brand…I like using my Dropps laundry detergent pods. I have been using them for over two years and they make it so easy to not use single-use plastics.

Psst: This interview has been edited for length and clarity.
