With pleasure I bid adieu to 2016! This past year was a doozy, but yet, a year filled with incredible beauty (products). I’ve had the incredible opportunity to discover so many incredible products in 2016, some very notable products that have really blown me away and just when I thought I’ve seen it all. Here are a few of the true stand outs of 2016 that have easily gained their place amidst my all-time faves.
I’m sure you’ve heard me rave about Kahina’s Prickly Pear Seed Oil time and again. High in amino acids, Vitamin K, essential fatty acids, this powerhouse ingredient performs miracles at brightening the under eye area. This truly transformational oil has given me mind-blowing results, and in a fairly short amount of time I’ve experienced its powers. Two new products from Kahina Giving Beauty lets us experience the wonders of their PPSO oil, now in an easy to apply rollerball format and again in their reformulated Eye Serum*.
Meet Bottega Organica, the revolutionary line of skin care that is worth its weight in gold. From first impressions and months of trials, Bottega Organica’s line has proved transformational and a true stand-out in the world of green beauty. Bottega Organica has a quite an extraordinary story of development, backed by scientific based research – and is clinically proven to improve the youthful appearance of skin. Pure extra virgin olive oil and prawn sage serve as the key ingredients and the basis of this line. Many ingredients are wildcrafted or organically grown on Bottega Organica’s very own farms located in Italy and Upstate NY – talk about farm to bottle!
Spring is here and it feels like a celebration! Now that we’ve said goodbye to winter and shed some layers, its time to reveal a more radiant you. This is the season for renewal and time for a full-body skin reboot. Winter can certainly wreak havoc on our skin but with some extra tlc you can get it back into shape.
You know when you’re in the presence of such beauty that you’re left tongue-tied and babbling? This was the case when I was introduced to the divine creation that is the Rare Indigo Beauty Balm from Mahalo Skincare*. I was at a loss for words in writing this review.
Exfoliation is a key step for smooth, radiant and healthy skin. Dry brushing, salt and sugar scrubs, Konjac sponges – I love them all and use one of these exfoliating methods regularly. I was pretty sure my exfoliation game was on point… then I experienced the most intense full-body exfoliation of my life and my previous methods were put to shame. Kahina’s newly released Beldi soap and Kessa Mitt* duo have turned me into a new woman. I’m telling you, I’ve shed (whats must be) years of dead skin in one go.
