I had the hardest time keeping the lid on this one! It’s not very often that I am over the top, excited about skincare products. Having sensitive skin, I have to be very careful with what I use on my skin. This winter wreaked havoc on my dry, sensitive skin. I was breaking out, and was beginning to see so much pre-mature aging in my cheeks due to the dryness that I just couldn’t seem to cure. But, I have it all figured out! My skin is looking incredible now – better than it has in months! It’s almost hard to believe.
Earlier this week I shared my Tips for Sensitive Skin, I wanted so badly to share these products as well, since they have been a huge lifesaver and fit perfectly into that post as well.
When I first heard that we were going to get a product from One Love Organics, I was so happy! They are one of my favourite skincare lines, and I’m always so impressed with how my skin looks when I use their products. Noteworthy from their line are the cleansing oil (a holy grail) and this cleanser.
That brings me to Skin Dew. There’s nothing like this or even comparable (that I have used) in organic skincare. It’s so unique! It’s light, intensely moisturizing without being heavy, it’s not oily, it’s honestly just a dream. When I first put it on it feels cool, and lightweight. The next day my skin feels so soft and smooth. It’s the most incredible product! I cannot rave more! Just do yourself a favour, and try it! I cannot imagine anyone not being pleased with this product.
- Coconut Water – hydrates
- Cupuacu Butter – anti-aging
- Jojoba Oil – balances sebum
- Acacia Oil – antioxidant
- Sunflower Oil – anti-inflammatory
- Watermelon Seed Oil – light moisture
Secondly, a skincare line that is entirely new to me, Live Botanical. The featured product is the AER Aloe & Green Tea Hyaluronic Acid Serum. Now, last year I used a hyaluronic acid serum during the Winter months, and it saved my dry cheeks. Fast forward this year, and I was missing it so much! Then this arrived at the perfect time. It’s also incredibly lightweight. It acts as a toner and serum all in one (so you can skip the toner.) There’s no scent at all with this product, and it has a clear liquid consistency, it absorbs right into the skin, and doesn’t leave any residue. Basically it magically makes the skin texture look smooth, plumped, and healthy. It’s also perfect to use as a lightweight makeup primer, if you like a mattifying primer (as there is no glow.) It’s beautiful for layering with other skincare or mixing into your favourite moisturizer. It’s an all around beautiful product, and has made the biggest difference in my skin.
- Hylauronic Acid – hydrates
- Japanese Green Tea – refines
- Aloe – soothes
That wraps up this month’s box. Can you tell I’m a bit obsessed? You will be hearing more about these in the future I’m sure! The retail value of this month’s box is $88 USD. The cost of this box is $39 USD, so it’s an incredible value! You can sign up for this and next’s month’s box here. Art of Organics ships internationally! I personally never have any duty charges when it arrives here in Canada (woohoo!) So if you have been on the fence on this one, this is hands down my favourite box to date! Treat yourself here!
