Gentle cleansing

Sanitas Lemon Cream Cleanser

All skin types can benefit from this creamy-feeling cleanser infused with lemon peel oil that detoxifies skin without drying. It also renews and brightens with vitamins C and E, and hydrates with fatty acid-rich jojoba oil.

Rave review: “Leaves the skin clean and crisp, no oily feeling…love the smell!”

Balance skin and refine pores

Dr. Hauschka Facial Toner

A swipe of this mild toner leaves skin feeling fresh and radiant. Anthyllis (a medicinal plant that draws out impurities) and witch hazel combine to balance surface oils, minimize pores and support skin elasticity.

Rave review: “Spritzing this on my face always feels so refreshing. It is the perfect finish after washing off my makeup & also in the morning, waking up & balancing my skin…”

Protect and nourish

Cowgirl Extreme Antioxidant Serum

Like a multivitamin for our skin, this blend of lime, lavender and rosewood essential oils, aloe vera and vitamins A, D and E calms skin and protects us from damaging (and aging!) free radicals. It’s a good choice for irritated skin, layered under a daily moisturizer.

Rave review: “Love this!! I have been using this for 3+ years. I use under my day cream! It absorbs completely and helps my skin. I have oily skin. I can tell a difference when I use this product.”

Repair damaged skin

Mad Hippie Vitamin C Serum

Vitamin C serums can turn brown and oxidize fairly quickly, making them less potent. Not so with this gel that utilizes sodium ascorbyl phosphate (SAP), a form of vitamin C that is much more stable, so its potency lasts longer. Combined with vitamin E and ferulic acid, it’s a powerful antioxidant that repairs free radical sun damage (i.e., brown spots and wrinkles). Added konjac root plumps skin for less visible lines.

Rave review: This serum isn’t harsh, isn’t smelly, doesn’t go bad quickly, and I like the ingredients, so I feel it’s doing what it’s supposed to do for my skin. I’ve repurchased it several times, which I have not done with any other Vitamin C serum I’ve tried.”

Strengthen skin’s moisture barrier

Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil

Packed with essential fatty acids (80%+), 2 or 3 drops of this pure rosehip seed oil seals moisture into your skin, reducing fine lines and minimizing acne scars and stretch marks. Plus it works on all skin types!

Rave review: “Has dramatically changed my face with repeated use, fine lines gone, and I don’t get that dry look or feeling half way through the day.”

Banish puffy eyes and dark circles

100% Pure Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream

Arabica green coffee bean extract and green tea leaf extract offer a shot of caffeine that diminishes puffiness under the eyes and lightens dark circles. Rosehip oil and rose flower water gently moisturize so fine lines are reduced, leaving your face looking refreshed.

Rave review: “This is the first eye cream that has worked on my dark circles and reduced the puffiness as well. I love the smell and how it hydrates my under eye area.”

Heal irritated skin

Avene Cicalfate Restorative Skin Cream

Speed the recovery process for dry, cracked skin, burns, diaper rash, even cosmetic procedures with this rich cream that’s clinically proven to promote healing and prevent scarring.

Rave review: “My skin gets so sensitive sometimes that this is the ONLY product I have been able to put on it during flare ups. It is so soothing and restores the moisture barrier when everything else burns, especially around my mouth and eyes. This product is also ideal to use after procedures when skin is irritated. It has been a life saver… “
