Don’t be fooled. Just because you are standing in the health food store does not mean it meets your standards of being healthy. Corn syrup solids are not on my list. I was duped in by the beautiful packaging and trigger word of being fermented. So I want to know, do you read labels? Are there specific ingredients that you stay away from? For me corn is an issue. It flares my arthritis and does not walk me toward those goals of waking up pain free ready to start my day.
Here it is, our ‘how to’ on our 4 step facial line.
Your face is important to us and we’ve handmade our products to be as naturally organic and beautiful as you are to gently wash away the muck of everyday.
step 1: cleanse
cleanse skin 1-2 times daily to sweep away makeup and pore clogging impurities. Dampen your skin with warm water, lather both sides of bar and massage into face avoiding eyes. Rise thoroughly with warm water.
our facial bars: Lets go back to the bar, we are face deep in cream and liquid facial cleansers when we had it so good with the bar. So bar one or bar two you say? Our Rose + Coal combination bar is everybody’s fav. I’d try that one first unless you are on the oily side, then we suggest the Sea Clay + Coal. Both clays have the ability to absorb impurities like makeup, oil and dirt while they differ in how much they are absorbing from the skin. Our sea clay pulls just a tad more then our rose. We know there’s a charcoal craze right now, and for good reason. Charcoal detoxifies, it naturally penetrates and draws other elements into itself leaving your skin clean without chemicals. Purely organic and NEVER a trace of parabens or formaldehyde.
step 2: exfoliate
use 1-2 times weekly to remove dead, dry skin and residual dirt. With dampened skin use pea size of polish, gently rub in circular motions around face and neck. For best results let sit for 3-5 minuets. Rinse and pat dry.
our facial polish: Exfoliation and natural caffeine in one? That’s the type of multitasking we’re all about! Did you know caffeine can perk up your skin just as much as it can perk up your mind?! Caffeine shrinks the tiny blood vessels in your face making your skin appear tighter, smoother, and can banish those dark circles under your eyes! No one has to know you decided to binge watch something on Netflix last night instead of catching a healthy dose of Z’s, after all, who hasn’t done that? Our facial polish is loaded full of a finely ground coffee (gentle enough for your face), cocoa butter and vitamin E oil to ensure your face is hydrated and glowing from the inside out. Use this polish as often as needed to slough off those dead skin cells and rejuvenate tired or dry skin. Purely organic and NEVER a trace of parabens or formaldehyde.
step 3: tone
use after cleansing and exfoliating or throughout the day to refresh skin. Close eyes and spray toner over face and neck following cleansing and let air dry.
our cucumber tonic: A personal facial mist to carry in your purse or makeup bag to use at your leisure? Yes please! We love this as a mid-day makeup refresher, to use as a facial tonic, sunburn relief, or even a complete mind refresher! Cucumber has some amazing qualities which makes it so wonderful for the skin! It hydrates, it flushes out toxins, it reduces redness and inflammation, plus it delivers skin-loving vitamins A, B and C, as well as minerals magnesium and potassium. Other shining ingredients that will make your skin glow are organic aloe juice, Roman chamomile distillate, grapeseed oil, and green tea extract. Purely organic and NEVER a trace of parabens or formaldehyde.
step 4: moisturize
apply face cream morning and evening after cleansing, exfoliating and toning. Use pea size amount to distribute and gently smooth over face and neck.
our facial cream: You’ve found it! The holy grail of facial moisturizers! Sit down. Have a drink. Stay a while. That’s right, we may sound a little over confident but if your sister with the oily complexion can use it along with your aunt Mary, who’s insufferably dry, as well as yourself who’s a little of both, then yeah, we think that’s something to celebrate. This is a fragrance free product but has a naturally occurring earthy yet slightly sweet scent. A pea size amount is recommended for face/neck area unless you’re experiencing extra dryness. Rich with red raspberry seed oil, borage, jojoba, and meadowfoam oils. Purely organic and NEVER a trace of parabens or formaldehyde.
our facial travel kit: Don’t we all love and squeal over small travel size things! Go ahead and love on this kit even if you aren’t headed on a trip. The smaller size containers makes it the easiest way to sample the whole line to see if you’ll love it like we do! Plus it has a loofa. Limited quantity, get it while its in stock.
