Unboxing Fall 2021
It’s that time of year again – Pumpkin spice lattes, crunchy leaves, cozy layers – oh and of course tweaking your skincare routine to suit a drop in temperature. Summer does a number on our skin. Lucky for all you skin savvy readers you know the importance of protecting and nourishing the skin in the heat of summer but our skin can always use a gentle rehab following those long sunny days spent enjoying the weather. When I say rehab – I don’t mean an overhaul that is going to leave your skin feeling stripped. Gentle is always best. Enter – The Fall Box.
The first item we are going to unbox here is the Fresh Face Cleanser by Wildgold Botanicals. If you have been hesitant to try oil cleansers fear not – even if you have oily skin. Oil balances oil and an oil cleanser is a great item to work into your routine in the cooler months. You can use it on its own or in a double cleanse routine right before your go-to cleanser. Fresh Face is super gentle and smells divine. It contains Burdock and Cedar which promote circulation to your skin while castor oil works to remove dirt, impurities and makeup. It won’t strip your skin of its natural oils, and it will leave your skin feeling refreshed with a dewy glow. Simply wet hands, apply to the skin and massage in circular motions before gently wiping it away with a washcloth or my personal preference is a soft Konjac Sponge.
Next up we have the Nourishing Facial Toner from Woodlot. This toner contains a blend of rose water hyaluronic acid and witch hazel to make it the ultimate in hydrating, tightening and soothing. These ingredients work together to help repair the skin after months of sunshine. Shake the bottle well and apply a few drops onto the skin and gently pat and press. Remember - don’t touch the dropper to your face (skincare hygiene 101) or you prefer you can use a cotton pad to apply. This toner is going to leave your skin feeling super soft and refined.
The next item is the Daily Renewal Facial Oil from Essentialist Skincare. This Facial oil is an absolute power house and is the perfect facial oil to follow Summer with. This oil contains Pomegranate Seed Oil, Prickly Pear Seed Oil (Prickly Pear – how fun is that ingredient to say?) as well as Passion Fruit Seed Oil and Black Currant Seed Oil. Talk about vitamin and nutrient rich. This oil can be used day and night (remember - keep that dropper tip off your face. Say it with me now) and it works to promote microbiome and skin barrier protection, stimulate cellular regeneration and collagen production and delivers deep lasting hydration. To top it off it also will work to prevent fine lines and wrinkles, diminish hyperpigmentation, and protect against environmental pollutants, toxins, and UV damage. Did I not say this was a powerhouse?
Last but not least we have the Velli Sandalwood Dewy Body Lotion from Sade Baron. We’ve learned to extend our skincare routine to the neck but we still tend to neglect our skin from the collarbone down. No more! This beautiful natural vegan body lotion infused with Pro-Vitamin B5 is uber lightweight but extremely effective. Goodbye dry elbows. Its spicy, earthy and wood scented formula will leave all skin types soft to the touch. If your someone who likes a subtle scent in your body lotions this one is for you. It has a clean refreshing scent that won’t overpower that tiny bottle of perfume you spent a small fortune on (you know who you are). This lotion contains Superfats like shea butter and avocado oil to deeply penetrate for softer and healthier skin while nourishing with natural antibacterial properties.
