Skin care doesn’t—and shouldn’t—always be so speedy. Here are some of the most “Zen” beauty experiences from brands that take a moment to make the experience enjoyable.
Formulated with a vitamin C base, elastin and amino acids, Natura Bisse’s C+C Vitamin Body Cream ($102), a luxuriously rich and firming emulsion, provides a complete beauty toning treatment for the body via the finest of ingredients that are usually reserved for a facial. Skin is left feeling soft, toned, nourished and smooth. The active ingredients are highly effective, and the formula and scent merge to create a relaxing experience.
Apply after a bath or shower and take a moment to enjoy the refreshing, Mediterranean-citrus fragrance—a completely unexpected scent from a firming cream.
Each of the products from I AM Organic’s line were thoughtfully created to deliver a complete experience that cares for your mind, body and soul. Every essential oil used was carefully selected to take you to a place of serenity, while boasting serious healing and therapeutic properties. Our favorite from the collection? Sugar Scrub in Grateful ($30).
Sugar scrubs are often associated with luxury skin care, and I AM Organic offers you spa products and results without the hefty price tag. The essential oils used in I AM Organic products all contain light, relaxing scents and ingredients you could easily find in spa skin-care treatments or massage oils.
After years of researching the science behind aromatherapy, the brand’s founder paired scents that would not only take her to a place of serenity, but also would work well as a team. Each oil is chosen because of its therapeutic and healing properties and are combined with other natural ingredients to create a skin-care line that smells just as amazing as it performs.
Infused with an herbal, relaxing scent reminiscent of a spa experience, Fit Glow Beauty Redness Rescue Cream (RRC) ($69) keeps skin looking even and calm, just as it would after a facial. A brilliant blend of seaweed bio extract, organic comfrey, calendula and chamomile increases skin’s oxygen content by 50 percent to detoxify it and leave it with a luminous glow. The cream has a gentle, herbal, relaxing scent from natural plant infusions that gives the feeling of being inside a spa. It can be used over serum to give a naturally even complexion and keep skin calm all day. It’s a great calming primer, too!
