Let's make it a fresh, clean start ~ literally!
It's the simplest and freshest start of the day ~
What is it?
It's Self Care ... The Simple and Proper Act of Cleansing the Skin
Sound basic? It is, but it's often over done, or it's not done quite enough.
Read on ~ we'll tell you what we mean...
If you're already a clean and natural product fan, or you're just trying to get started with a safe and healthy self care routine, this is the first step.
Dust, pollution, makeup, sweat ... impurities and gunk. Even if we're fresh-faced or don't wear makeup, we're picking-up dirt and debris throughout the day that can clog pores and cause our skin to age faster than normal. No good!
A cleansing oil, the RIGHT cleansing oil, can make all of the difference.
What are those benefits of a proper cleanse with our cleansing oils?
An Ingredient Peek:
A Top Rated Cleansing Oil vs. Ours
Let's take a quick minute and look a little closer. Below we're comparing a top rated cleansing oil that boasts its clean ingredients and antioxidants. It describes that it leaves skin soft, cleansed, and with no residue left on the skin.
Here is a side-by-side comparison of a very popular and 'clean' cleansing oil ingredient label, and our Balancing Cleansing Oil... which is just one of our three cleansing oil formulas we offer.
Synthetics vs Plant Based Ingredients
It's clear to see the difference in the ingredients listed above.
You may have heard us say it before... oil removes oil without over-stripping the skin. When removing the cleansing oil with a wash cloth, the skin is left clean. However, starting with clean ingredients to get the job done makes all the difference. 🌱
As Seen in Allure ~
It's very timely that our Balancing Cleansing Oil with Thyme was just mentioned in an Allure article featuring natural ingredients.
More and more dermatologists and guys and gals are reaching for alternatives to the synthetic and often harsh ingredients like salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide. We're thrilled to hear this and are honored to be mentioned.
But wait! There's more...
Below: It's Our Award Winning Eye Makeup Remover
Before you know it, your eye makeup is gone in a blink ... 😉
It's been said that our eyes are the windows to our soul. It's also been said that our eyes tell a story. The story that they should tell is that they're well cared for and pampered... safely and naturally. 💗
Whether or not we wear eye makeup, mascara, or have a beautiful set of false lashes, the area around our eyes is delicate. Just like the backs of our hands, our neck, and décolletage, the skin around the eye area naturally produces little oil on its own. Lashes are fragile and can easily break.
It's up to us to keep the area around our eyes supple, moisturized, and fed properly with skin-loving vitamins and hydration.
Traditional eye makeup removers contain synthetics such as silicones, fragrances, parabens, and harsh preservatives that may feel slick and light to the touch, but the residue and chemicals left behind on the skin are anything but healthy and skin-loving.
Meet our award winning Eye Makeup Remover.
We've added a healthy dose of organic castor bean oil for its touted benefits for helping lash and brow growth. Our eye makeup remover is specially formulated to soften and remove mascara and eye makeup without any of the usual silicones, petro chemicals, or artificial ingredients.
We've included cold-pressed oil of cranberry seeds to benefit the lashes and the delicate skin around the eye area while softening with essential fatty acids and Vitamins A and E. The oil of safflowers helps to naturally reduce any puffiness or irritation while leaving the skin feeling soothed and not greasy. Castor oil is used by many to help promote the healthy and natural growth of lashes and brows because of its nourishing natural properties. We love it! 😍
Let's take another ingredient peek at a popular eye makeup remover.
This brand mentions that it's gentle and free of fragrances, and reviewers like how clean and fresh their skin feels after using it. Unfortunately we're not seeing many fresh and clean ingredients on this list.
It's never too early to start a clean self-care routine, and it's never too late to start, either.

The Teacher in 2020
What has 2020 taught us?
It's been a crazy ride for all of us in different ways this past year. It has been a challenge, but it's also helped us grow.
When we experience real growth, it's always with ups and downs. Just like that little seed sprouting from the ground, it's a struggle to get out of the dirt, (or snow!) ❄️ Finally, that sprout starts to reach for the sky and take root. 🌱 With growth, we sometimes need to climb through these challenges along the way. Through all of these struggles come the lessons that each of us need. Time to persevere. New life and existing life is fragile. The last year has helped us evolve and appreciate the fragility of life and what we have. Thank You 2020 for teaching us and reminding us not to take things for granted. We've come to the end of 2020, but we haven't come to the end of anything.
We've come to a new, fresh start.
With warm hugs, Happy 2021 to You!
