It’s been good to get back in the lab and work on new products. I have four in development right now and they look like winners! They’ll be available in my shop starting in a few weeks.
I get a lot of requests for new products. I usually have a hard time narrowing it down, so this time I used a different strategy. I looked at our current selection and asked what works well and why. Out of all the things we make, two favorites make the biggest difference when you use them.
These two formulas are customer favorites (and my personal favorites) because they each do something very well: one makes you look better and the other makes you feel better.
But that’s not all. They also stand out because they’re made with 100% natural, biodegradable, eco-friendly ingredients.
As someone who spends her fair share of time slathering on moisturizers at Sephora and Ulta while reading all the ingredient labels, I can tell you that finding an all-natural cream is nearly impossible. It matters though, because it all ends up on our skin and eventually in our groundwater.
Because Jeff (my amazing husband) is a cosmetic chemist and knows how to make luxurious lotions that are 100% natural, I knew we had to expand our line of facial skincare. Just because the big brands aren’t doing it, that doesn’t mean it can’t be done.
Ok, now for the good stuff. Here’s what you can expect to see very soon!
This is exciting! The first time I applied it after mixing a test batch, I felt like my wrinkles disappeared immediately. I didn’t get anything done for the rest of the day because I kept going back to marvel in the mirror. I’ve been using this every morning and I LOVE IT.
Lightweight Moisturizer for Oil Control
Our Intense Hydration moisturizer goes on silky soft, but for skin that doesn’t need a ton of extra hydration, it can feel heavy. Look for a lighter moisturizer with a clarifying herb blend in our shop soon.
Hydrating Mist + Setting Spray
Mist and setting spray is that beauty product that makes you say, “Where has this been my whole life?” It’s fairly new to the beauty world, but after you try it, you know it’s the one thing you’ve been missing this whole time. Great for extra hydration when paired with a moisturizer, or super light hydration when used alone; and really good for making your face feel soft and smooth as the day goes on. Under or over makeup, mist and setting spray is awesome.
Eye Makeup Remover
Our new eye makeup remover solves two of the biggest challenges. First, it removes all of your eye makeup easily, including your favorite waterproof mascara. Second, it doesn’t leave behind an oily residue. I like to knit and read before I go to bed, and I feel frustrated when makeup remover leaves oil on my lashes and makes it hard to see clearly.
All of this Research & Development takes a lot of experimentation. There have been so many failed batches along the way. Thank you, as always, for supporting me and Jeff, suggesting new products, giving feedback, sharing your own skincare frustrations and expectations, and for being awesome!
