New Cupcake LightHearted only has 80 calories, 8% alcohol by volume, and less than 1 gram of sugar per 5 oz. serving.
Cupcake LightHearted is the first of its kind. It even has fewer calories than leading hard seltzers but doesn’t compromise on taste.
The wine is bright and bursting with refreshing fruit-forward flavors. Thanks to its lower calories and alcohol content, it complements an active lifestyle. Cupcake LightHearted brings full flavor to all of life’s lighter moments…at the beach, on the trail, after your run or wherever life takes you. Cupcake LightHearted is available in four aromatic varietals: Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Rosé and Pinot Noir. There is a varietal to pair with any taste for any occasion.

Goodhabit Rescue Me Glow Potion Oil Serum ($80 available on Goodhabitskin.com)
This triple-layered elixir combines the powerful effects of an oil, serum and essence into one do-it-all formula, while our proprietary BLU5 technology minimizes and helps prevent future signs of aging caused by artificial blue light. The top layer is packed with antioxidant-rich oils that infuse skin with moisture, while repairing damage, restoring elasticity, and imparting a rejuvenated look and feel.
