Self Magazine names our Red Currant Rapid Infusion Masque a Healthy Beauty Award Winner!

April 22, 2014

Self Magazine tried and tested thousands of beauty products in search of their 2014 Healthy Beauty Award winners. And, we're excited to announce, our Red Currant Rapid Infusion Masque has won in the "Mask" category!

“Made of a combination of natural alpha hydroxy acids to exfoliate—lemon, passion fruit, grape, pineapple—plus honey to nourish, it sounds like a smoothie but performs like a facial (just faster)” says Self Magazine’s April Franzino

One of Self Magazine’s readers raved that our Red Currant Rapid Infusion Masque "felt like a spa treatment at home, but only took two or three minutes to work" and she loved that her face "felt refreshed and rejuvenated, and appeared hydrated with more elasticity".

Thanks Self!

Get prom perfect skin!

April 10, 2014

The weather is warming up and prom season is just around the corner!  For a rundown on how to get that “prom perfect” skin, Teen Vogue consulted A-List facialist Joanna Vargas. According to Vargas, if you want “a pristine complexion, you'll need to plan accordingly!” because “good skin doesn't happen overnight”. Here's a couple of great suggestions from Joanna on how to prep your skin for prom.

Four weeks before:

This is the time you should start to be “more diligent with your beauty routine”. "It's important to be exfoliating at least twice week" Vargus says. Her favorite scrub for teens is our Citrus Exfoliating Face Wash.

One Week Before:  

"This is the perfect time for a full body exfoliation to really get glowing". She recommends our Coconut Sugar Scrub.

Even if prom isn't your thing - it’s important to remember that a good skincare routine is vital for a healthy, glowing complexion. In the words of Joanna Vargas - “your skin is a reflection of both your mental and physical health as well as the products that you're putting on and taking off of it on a daily basis”. Now that’s great skin advice!

Find your youthful glow with red currant

April 08, 2014

When it comes to youthful looking skin, there’s plenty of buzz around the amazing antioxidant benefits of red currant!  

In article called “Anti-aging: 11 best serums”, Elle Canada shared their “shopping guide to the best anti-aging serums in the world” and our Red Currant Balancing Concentrate made the cut! The delicious aromas of “red currant, elderflower and magnolia bark are infused in a formula to focus on anti-aging with the addition of tea tree to target anti-acne” says Elle Canada’s Renee Tse.

To take the benefits of antioxidant-rich red currants to the next level, Day Spa suggests our Red Currant Rapid Infusion Masque. This masque's "intoxicating scent belies its no-nonsense exfoliating, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant action” says Day Spa’s Executive Editor, Linda Kossoff. 

Youthful looking skin and sun protection go hand and hand, so if you’re looking for the combined benefits of a moisturizer and sun protection, Dermascope recommends our Red Currant Protective Moisturizer with SPF 30. According to Demascope's Bella Scheider, PME, “a high-quality sunscreen must be used in conjunctions with a balanced lifestyle to truly have the desired effect of a youthful and healthy skin”.

Concentrate, masque or moisturizer, whatever your potion may be, let the antioxidant powers of red currant take you on a journey to more youthful looking skin!

Bring a little sugar plum into your life this Spring!

March 31, 2014

Spring is in the air and changes in temperature can mean changes in your skin. Refinery 29 named our Sugar Plum Oil-Free Revitalizer as one of their essentials to “prep your skin for spring”. According to Refinery 29, “This is a great product for spring because as the temperature rises, so does the production of sebum (oil) in the skin. So, this product will refresh and tone the skin to a matte, velvety finish".

Sensitive skin types are especially affected by the changes in temperature from one season to the next. Sugar plum comes to the rescue again, this time in the form of a masque! According to Fluff and Fripperies, our Sugar Plum Revitalizing Masque is “a great pick for more sensitive or easily irritated skin”. This masque smells so delicious - you won’t want to take it off! In the words of Fluff and Fripperies’ Emma Henderson,“it smells like it should be spread on a scone, and instantly inhaled”. Yum.

Musical diva Santigold recently sat down for a candid interview with Vogue where she revealed what keeps her skin looking fabulous.  This beautiful mom-to-be is expecting her first child in late March, and we’re proud to say that our products have helped shape her pregnancy beauty routine. “I’ve always been a pretty natural person. I use Eminence Organic because it’s really yummy smelling” says Santigold.

In an interview with Lucky Magazine Santigold revealed that not only does she keep her beauty routine natural, she keeps it simple. “Most days I don't wear any face makeup, just some eye color or a lip.

The couple that relaxes together stays together

March 12, 2014

Life gets busy, and sometimes it’s difficult to make quality time with the one you love. 

According to Beauty Heaven, “taking time out to relax is invaluable when it comes to any relationship” and what better way to relax than with a couples massage!  A massage at your favorite spa may be just the R&R that you and your partner are longing for-but if this isn’t in your budget, Beauty Heaven suggests creating your own oasis at home. 

“Block out at an hour and set up your own ‘massage salon’ at home, complete with a pampering massage oil and a soothing soundtrack” says Beauty Heaven’s Olivia Mackinnon. “We recommend using Eminence Organic Skin Care Mimosa Champagne Massage Oil”.  This soothing and moisturizing body oil “contains a cocktail of skin-loving, nourishing ingredients such as coconut oil, jojoba oil, white grape seed oil and tokay ice wine grapes”.
