As I’ve gotten older I have started to think a lot more about the ingredients in the products that I’m putting on my skin. It feels like every day I find out about some ingredient that has scary side effects. Parabens, Sulfates… to be honest I can’t even keep track. But it scares me. I will always love trying new products… but the ones I use every day are the all natural ones… the ones where I can read the label and more or less understand what every ingredient is. One line I really love right now is Farmaesthetics. They’re based in Newport Rhode Island… I first came across them during my trip to Terrain, when I picked up their eye bright. Hailed as being three products in one (anti-inflammatory, make-up remover, and line smoother) I was curious about it. It lived up to the hype – I use it every night to take off my makeup.
Recently they sent over their Midnight Honey Oil and oh my god… this stuff is incredible. I used it after a bath, on a particularly stressful day. The oil glides on and hydrates without being too greasy. But the best part is the scent. It smells exactly like (gourmet) honey. I wanted to lick it off of my skin. Gross, but kind of awesome, too.
Besides the products, I love the packaging. Let’s be honest, we want things that look pretty on our vanity. The glass apothecary bottles and minimalist tins do just that. Consider me hooked…. next up I want to try the honey scrub and the deep lavender rub.
