Whether you’re looking forward to prom or to the big day when you’ll say “I do,” one thing is for sure: you want your skin to look its very best. With all the products on the market, it’s easy to get overwhelmed and not know which one to choose. So, to help make your decisions a little easier, we’ve researched some of the best all-natural, organic products on the market – and here are our winners!
Caring for Your Facial Skin
Facial Cleanser – Of all the products in your skin care arsenal, cleansers are usually the least exciting. After all, their main job is to remove dirt and make-up, right? Safisa’s amazing Glycolic Cleanser would beg to differ. Not only does this powerhouse product remove “gunk,” it improves the texture, appearance and clarity of your skin! Within a day of using this product, I saw a noticeable difference in the softness and smoothness of my skin. Within a few days, my skin seemed brighter and I had to squint much harder to see the fine line on my forehead. I’ve used quite a few cleansers over the years, from beauty counter splurges to drug store deals, and I can definitely say this outperforms them all, hands down.
Facial Mist -Looking for a quick spritz of moisture post-shower or throughout the day? This intoxicating hydrating facial mist features Jasmine, Ylang Ylang, Wild Sage and more to keep you glowing throughout the day!
Night Cream – When the words “night cream” come to mind, you’d be forgiven for thinking of a thick, gloopy mess. Luminous Stone’s “Rose Gold” Night Cream takes your nightly moisturizing routine to a whole new, heavenly level. Not only is this product pleasing to the senses, it is absolutely packed with organic ingredients that leave your skin unbelievably soft and smooth in just a matter of days.
Eye Cream & Wrinkle Cream – Part of any solid skin care routine should include anti-aging measures, especially for the delicate skin underneath your eyes. Safisa’s Anti-Wrinkle Moisturizer is loaded with essential anti-aging ingredients from collagen to Vitamins E & C to both prevent and reduce signs of aging. Even better, the clever syringe packaging makes it easy to apply!
Under Eye Mask – Under eye bags bringing you down? Banish your bags, under eye circles and puffiness with Safisa’s ingenious collagen eye patches. These lifesavers can be worn for 1-8 hours (including while you sleep) and are sure to leave you looking refreshed and well rested!
