Happy Friday! It’s a cold, gray and rainy day here in Vermont – which is perfectly fine, because we’ve had a pretty amazing streak of sunny days so far this season and the farm has been saturated with color. Everywhere you look there are views like the one above – happy deciduous trees doing their thing, lighting up our landscape, though for a woefully short amount of time.
I digress – back to skincare. A little while back, Tata shared her favorite fall product picks with everyone, but today we’re going to focus on products for the face, and items that aren’t your typical obviously-for-fall items. Let’s discuss.
The Refreshing Cleanser is the unsung hero of our cleanser collection. Sweet and meek, it does not fight for flashy attention like our other cleansers. Soft and subtle, it is perfectly suited for those of us with more sensitive complexions – but it also can be a great cleanser for accompanying your skin through times of seasonal change. Its calming formula does more than meets the eye: fruit enzymes exfoliate while pink clay detoxifies, successfully sloughing off blackheads while maintaining a moisture balance with its non-soapy formula. We love it for fall because it soothes and stabilizes our post-summer skin, making way for a beautifully moisturized complexion come winter.
The Rejuvenating Serum is a favorite in fall as a makeup primer that does double-duty as a total antiaging powerhouse. We cannot sing this serum’s praises enough; if you are over the age of 25, you should be using it daily. Sorry, but it’s true! That’s why it makes pretty much every one of our roundups. It’s that essential, year round.
The Moisturizing Mask – it soars back season with the cold weather. Spent a day out hiking in the chilly wind? Had a little too-intense of a peel treatment and need your skin’s bounce back? Massage this Mask into clean skin (or on top of a serum) and then go to sleep. It has ingredients that intuitively moisturize where your skin needs it most, for maximum results. Yum, moisture!
The Concentrated Brightening Serum is just the sort of treatment we need to get our radiance on before winter comes. I don’t know about you, but everything for me goes dull the minute the sun starts setting earlier than 6 pm (which is just the worst) – skin, hair, etc. The Brightening Serum delivers improved radiance like no other – and, it’s about to get a sister! Our Concentrated Brightening Essence is launching very soon – combined, we can’t even imagine how glowy winter is about to get.
That’s it for skincare! This is a Friday 5 though, so one more thing to share: as we head into the weekend, I encourage you to check out this piece from Brain Pickings, “An Antidote to the Age of Anxiety: Alan Watts on Happiness and How to Live with Presence“. Brain Pickings is one of my favorite sites; its author, Maria Popova, culls through great writing of past and present to distill wise lessons on life, love, work, happiness and everything in between. Give it a read – and enjoy.
Hugs for a beautiful weekend!
