2. Skin Cocktail: Mix, Match, Customize: If you’re anything like me, you get sucked into buying skin care products based on the invigorating scents, the beautiful packaging or your bestie tells you you have to have it! You are in the perfect place to customize your own intuitive skin care regime. This set up is my current obsession — and note that all of these gems are ingredient conscious green beauty picks!
Step 1: Derma-E Essentials Nourishing Rose Cleansing Oil ($18): Apply this rinse-free (divine smelling) cleansing oil gently with small circular motions.
Step 2: Whamisa Organic Flowers Deep Rich Essence Toner ($40): Talk about YUM! This toner is so lightweight and legit feels like you are swiping flower water onto your skin. Plus it leaves your face feeling nourished and fresh.
Step 3: Lavido Invigorating Facial Serum ($55): After all the rose calming this far, I take it up a notch and lather a small amount of this serum which immediately makes me feel alive!
Step 4: Amala Rejuvenating Eye Cream ($256): Listen, yes this product is on the higher end, but the investment in the most sensitive part of your sweet face is well worth it. I can feel the effects of this eye cream the second I gently tap it under my eyes and I could see a difference in my fine lines within a week of using. Also, a little goes a long way!
Step 5: OY-L Face Cream ($55): These ingredients OMG — sweet almond oil, avocado oil, hemp oil, jojoba oil, squalane, evening primrose, sea buckthorn oil, rosehip oil, carrot oil, apricot oil, lavender oil, frankincense oil, hemp seed butter, abyssinian oil, pomegranate oil and prickly pear. Need I say more?
Finishing Touch: Teadora Brazilian Glow Radiance + Renewal Oil ($40): Don’t forget about your body baby! Apply this sensory stimulating body oil with gentle, slow strokes — really breathe and take this time to relax (or you can have your lover help in this department for an extra win :)
