sharing some of my favorite facial products. clean, effective, sensual, eco-friendly. let me know some of your faves. xo Alanis Morissette
Organic Purifying Facial Cleanser: for those moments when I really need to hear a “squeak” on the surface of my skin after cleansing. The clean ingredients combined with the pure cleanliness this leaves me with is the perfect step one in my facial routine.
Marie Veronique Cleanser de Jour: when I want to clean my skin but don’t want to harshly reduce all oils to nothing (it has a cumulative drying effect for me) I use this cleanser. Sometimes I blend in ISun phyto-enzyme exfoliant into the cleanser if I want a bit of deeper cleaning.
Pratima sandalwood rose mask is a comforting and sensual experience beyond its function of purifying, exfoliating and calming. Reminds me of the sweetest exotic travels I have taken throughout my life.
Eminence Stone Crop Hydrating Mist: with a clean face, I spray this on generously. The scent and the effect of the mist itself tones and hydrates and perfectly preps for the next step….(it’s also from hungary, and with my being half Hungarian, it makes me think of my grandma)
Odacite A Winter In Paris: after toning, and before a serum, I put a few finger dabs of this facial oil…it absorbs instantly and then scent of rose-geranium-citrus transports me into a relaxed and deeply feminine-honoring state.
Tata Harper Rejuvenating Serum: I love tata harper’s products. I love watching tata, herself, speak. And watching her luminous skin bounce the light off her face as she does :). I put a healthy dose of this all over my face and neck after the light amount of oil applied just before.
ISUN Phyto-Antioxidant Cream: after serum, I apply a tiny dose of phyto-antioxidant cream to gently bind and seal-in all the potent and calming and natural moisture I have applied. This cream acts as a protector from the elements…and knowing that what is put ON my skin winds up IN my body, I appreciate that it is natural and organic.
Tammy Fender Restorative Radiance Masque: after a day at the beach or after riding on airplanes, I apply a very thin layer of this masque, and leave it on overnight. *includes beeswax
May Lindstrom the Blue Cocoon: this magical “blue cocoon” concentrate is jam packed with moisture (a little goes a long way!). I put this in areas that are severely dry: the sides of my nose…anywhere that needs to be drenched. (even a little on my hands when I have been in hot or super cold weather). This product is rapture.
Kahina Night Cream: for straight up nighttime moisture, I love using this night cream. Creamy and rich with argan oil and red wine grapes. Morocco and napa valley fantasy combo.
Tata Harper Be True: On the lips I put “be true” tata harper lip treatment. Moisture. Reminder. Goodness. Goodnight. Or good day. xoxox *includes beeswax
