A Brooklyn Brand Bridges The Gap Between Pretty And Principled

It's easy to get stuck in a beauty rut, but trust us, it's just as easy to break out of one. Typically use a body lotion to moisturize? Try switching to an oil. Never pay attention to what's in your products? Give organic ingredients a shot. And it just so happens that we can recommend something that fits both bills.

Wind-powered, Brooklyn-based brand skinnyskinny-there are multiple meanings behind its name, none of which involve weight-offers a host of certified-organic goods, of which our current favorite is the Botanically-Infused Jasmine & Green Tea Body Oil.

Packaged in a recyclable glass pump with a biodegradable label, this vegan recipe infuses skin with the soothing, nourishing benefits of oils from its title ingredients, jojoba, chamomile, rose, lavender, calendula, hemp seed, coconut, and borage. Almost magical in so many ways, it absorbs instantly, leaving behind only soft, subtly scented skin-and that scent is sublime.

We love the indie-chic feel of skinnyskinny's eco-friendly presentation just as much as the product itself. But it's how Botanically-Infused Jasmine & Green Tea Body Oil leaves our skin (and conscience) feeling that we appreciate most.
