French Girl Organics Review

2

I recently won several French Girl Organics products from a Petit Vour giveaway and could not wait to dish about them. Drawing from the founder Kristeen’s French heritage and inspired by the Parisian lifestyle, French Girl Organics is a skincare line that’s organic, wildcrafted and vegan. Many of their ingredients are sourced from their Urban Farmstead in Seattle where they handcraft each of their products, and the recipes have been tested on Kristeen’s family for 20 years.

Crystal Beauty

lesliefrancesca0I am new to crystals and have just started learning about them because I tried crystal-infused skincare products recently. I Instagrammed my excitement over this new discovery and  was fortunate to win a giveaway for a Druzy 24k Gold ring handcrafted by Leslie Francesca and receive a custom-designed Smoky Quartz and Amethyst necklace by Truly Deer. What I find most interesting about crystals is that:

Crystals are actually alive and have a precise rate of vibration

Crystals provide different healing benefits to its owner

The energy crystals carry can interact and exchange with the human magnetic energy field

PureSol Konjac Sponge Review

DSCF1593

If you haven’t heard of Konjac sponges by now, they’re 100% natural cleansing and exfoliation tools made from steaming the edible fiber of the konjac root plant. Used in Japan for 100 years as bathing sponges for babies, they’re now my favorite skincare tool because of their versatility and benefits. Here are the reasons why I love them:

Gently exfoliates and is great for sensitive skin
Improves skin texture and makes your pores smaller
Also a massage tool with a texture that feels amazing on my skin
Transports cleanser deeper into your pores
Biodegradable, sustainable natural and vegan

Perhaps the most scientifcally driven natural skincare line that I’ve tried, Marie Veronique combines cutting-edge research with the finest ingredients to create products that deliver results. This line is designed to target specific skin conditions from acne to aging and hyperpigmentation to rosacea. I tried their PRO Essentials Starter Kit which is a great routine to follow if you’re interested in probiotics-focused skincare and looking to prevent further damage.

My Handcare Routine

handcareTaking care of the skin on my hands is very important to me because I adore the look of soft and supple hands. I also want to avoid rough, mottled and wrinkly hands for as long as possible. These are the rituals I do:

Overnight Intense Moisturization 

Each night before going to bed I rub a dollop of organic, unrefined shea butter into my skin. It’s inexpensive (I purchase mine from Nature’s Shea Butter), deeply moisturizing and provides an intense treatment each night. I occasionally alternate with Henne Organics Lip Balm which can be used on dry skin.
