How (and Why) to Cleanse with Facial Balm

How (and Why) to Cleanse with Facial Balm

My matcha green tea facial balm is so moisturizing that a tiny bit goes a loooooong way. So if by any chance you're wondering what you're going to do with this big ol' jar of balm, I have a wonderful suggestion:  Use it to wash your face!  Yass, really!  It's just like an oil cleanse, only richer, and it feels even more luxurious and hydrating.  A balm cleanse is wonderful for anyone with dry skin, but it also works great if you have normal to oily skin and want to boost your skin's moisture levels as we head into cooler weather.

3 Lip Balm Hacks to Minimize Your Beauty Routine

I'm quite proud of many (okay, all) of the products that I make, but there is definitely an extra special place in my heart for my original formula lip balm.  Not only is it extremely effective at preventing (and healing) chapped lips, but it's ultra smooth, never sticky, smells light and fresh, and highlights my lips with a subtle gloss that makes me look and feel naturally dewy.  And I LOVE LOVE LOVE the big ol' biodegradable and recyclable push up tube.  Real talk - you'll probably lose this lip balm before you can use it up...  That is, unless, you incorporate...

Self Care Sunday #2: 5 Second Manicure

I've always kind of hated my hands.  For some reason when I was younger I got it in my head that they were too fat, my fingers were stubby, my nails weren't the right shape...  kind of like body dysmorphia, only it was all centered around my poor hands!  (If only I had known that someday I'd end up having a whole website full of pictures of them... haha!)  Now that I'm more mature I can totally see that my hands are perfectly proportionate to my body, but I still don't appreciate them the way that I should. I mean, they do make...

Two-minute Cleansing & Exfoliating Treatment

Because my daily powder cleanser is exfoliating, and I use it almost every night, I try not to over-exfoliate my face. But sometimes, we all just need a really good polish!  Why?  Because...  Exfoliating removes the top layer of dead skin cells, which makes your face look brighter.  It helps your moisturizer penetrate more deeply into your skin; and over the long term, can boost collagen production, reducing the signs of aging.  Rosehip Seed Powder + Cleansing Oil is my new favorite way to exfoliate. It's super simple, and incredibly good for your skin thanks to the anti-aging benefits of rosehip, and of...
