Finding Your Basic Routine

Facial Cleanser Lathered in Hands

If you follow along with us you're sure to notice our minimalist approach as our products are good for everybody. They are meticulously formulated to be pH balanced so they work with skin, not against it.

We find the cosmetic industry to be laden with products geared towards “skin types” which is a result of what happens when you apply products that are not pH balanced to skin.

We can break this conventional way of thinking and take back the health of our skin. If you have a less is more approach to skincare, this routine is for you.

1. Cleanse | Sweet Orange & Rosemary Cleansing Milk

Always cleanse with a pH balanced cleanser at the end of each day to remove makeup, SPF and environmental pollutants. A routine of nightly cleansing will reduce buildup that can lead to dull, sallow skin

This facial cleanser has a cult following because it provides velvety bubbles to lift stubborn residue up and away leaving skin clean yet supple and hydrated.

2. Moisturize | Lavender & Primrose Moisturizer

Lipid or oil-based moisturizers penetrate deeper into skin providing essential nutrients to balance sebum production, soothe underlying redness and promote skin elasticity, the ability to stretch and rebound. 

A top 5 best seller for the first time as of 2021, we love it for its creamy texture and lightweight feel on skin. This moisturizer will not leave you feeling tacky or sticky and can be layered under SPF and makeup.

3. Exfoliate | Chamomile & Oats Clay Facial Mask

We like to think of this step as being weekly and gently. We recommend a non-granular clay mask for deep extraction and exfoliation as it will maintain the health of skin without disruption. When incorporating weekly exfoliation into your routine, be sure to cleanse first, exfoliate second and moisturize last.

Suitable for all skin tendencies, this product helps to maintain product absorption while avoiding congested pores. Consistent exfoliation is key so be sure to pick a day and stick with it. We love Sundays for our self-care day.
