Founder's Favorites: Spring Edition

Hey Friends, Monica here! 👋🏼 I hope it's feeling like spring wherever you call home. For us here in Oregon, some days feel like spring, and others feel like the dead of winter still, but that's sort of what we sign up for living in the northwest. Nonetheless, I am excited about this season and the promise of summer, just around the corner. Below I am sharing some of my favorite products and how to best use them for the springtime:

Carrot Seed Serum: this botanically-rich serum is ideal for the spring and summer months due to its high levels of antioxidants and lightweight texture that performs like a traditional serum - without being too sticky. Whenever I use this both morning and night, I see such a difference in my skin - it's brighter, more hydrated, and just overall super dewy.

Prickly Pear Face Oil: truly my ride-or-die through all seasons of the year, this formula is made up from a blend of healing oils like prickly pear, frankincense, jojoba, raspberry seed, strawberry seed, and squalane that sink quickly into the skin and leave a glow that lasts all day. I apply 2-3 dropperfuls to freshly cleansed skin, then follow with either the Sandalwood Cream or Blue Tansy Cream, finishing with the Cocoa Eye Butter - and my skin is left sooo soft and supple. I use the face oil both morning and night for maximum results.

Sandalwood Cream: I love the Sandalwood Cream as my go-to AM moisturizer. It's a gel-cream that quickly absorbs into the skin (without a heavy deel) and layers well over our serum and face oil. Whenever I have little breakouts or unwanted texture, this cream does wonders to clear and even out my skin.

Cocoa Eye Butter: this luscious eye butter is perfect year-round, but especially in cooler months where it can still be dry and windy (like for us here in Oregon), so I apply this to the eye area, but also layer over the Sandalwood Cream on areas of the face that are extra dry.

Sea Buckthorn Hand Cream: I truly can't believe I ever lived without this product, ha! I'm super proud of where we landed with this formula because it offers deep moisture for dry hands, but doesn't leave a greasy residue. The uplifting aromatherapy bonus comes from a blend of bergamot and citrus oils and is the perfect pick-me-up for any time of the day.
