I’m grateful to have won such incredible green beauty products in an Instagram giveaway last month. I’ve started using them and have felt so pampered! I’m passionate about green beauty and will be sharing my experiences with these treasures over the coming months.
First up, is the Rare Indigo beauty balm from Mahalo Skin Care. Between the fires and smog, the air quality in LA this summer has been horrible, wreaking havoc on my sensitive skin. It became congested, dull and thrown out of balance… but after using this balm for just a few weeks, my glow came back!
After cleansing, exfoliating and toning my skin, I smooth a small amount over my face (a little goes a long way) and gently pat an extra dab under my eyes. It’s suitable for all skin types – mine is on the dry/sensitive side but it feels perfectly hydrated. It also calms inflammation working wonders on an angry monthly hormonal breakout and a bit of irritation from threading my brows.
I’m usually sensitive to scents – especially to florals which can be overwhelming, but I’m addicted to this complex and intoxicating scent! It’s hard to describe, but I find it to be both uplifting and relaxing. I love using it just before bed.
I was also fortunate to receive a pre-release jar of The Bean Antioxidant Mask. My husband and I enjoyed using it together in the morning. Such a yummy treat!
