sandalwood cream: ingredients and best usage

one of our most popular products is the sandalwood cream. many people have testified about how this single product has substantially changed their skin for the better. i'm not surprised, because it's packed full of powerhouse ingredients:

sandalwood essential oils: clear and prevent breakouts and soften fine lines.

aloe: soothing, healing, gently moisturizes.

jojoba oil: despite it's name, it's actually a wax-which gives this cream it's nice matte-like finish. lightly moisturizes without being heavy or clogging pores.

melissa essential oil: kills bacteria, renews.

geranium essential oil: antibacterial. awesome for healing and preventing acne.

turmeric: reduces inflammation. 

echinacea: soothing, helps prevent and soften fine lines.

licorice: lightens dark spots. 

lavender: soothing, antiseptic, normalizes oil production.

sage: may increase collagen production and can aid in the healing of acne scars.

thyme: clears and prevents new breakouts.

gotu kola: may increase collagen production and new cell renewal.

how's that for a superstar lineup? so, what is the best way to use it?

unless you have very oily skin, this cream is best used only in the morning. it's light finish is perfect to layer under makeup and/or sunscreen. a small dollop is all you need, and gently massaging it into your face and neck will add to the luxurious experience. at night, pairing it with a heavier cream or oil or mixing it with our cocoa eye butter should provide a great balance of moisture for your skin.

there you have it! are you a fan of our sandalwood cream? if so, we'd love to hear about it.

from my heart,
