New Product Spotlight: Ogee

Posted by Bree Bruce

We get really excited whenever we are able to offer our customers a new great brand option. So, today we're excited to share with you all that we now carry Ogee products!

A little bit about Ogee:

Ogee was founded by a collection of beauty and fashion leaders who created some of the world’s respected beauty brands. We wanted to align the products that we were producing with our personal values of green living, organic food and luxury goods.

We spent the last 10 years searching the world for the best ingredients.

Our uncompromising standards mean we will never use petroleum derivatives, parabens, synthetic fragrances, formaldehyde, or GMOs.

We are blended, filled, certified and packaged in the United States using 100% recycled paperboard, and we do not test on animals.

We are proud supporters of the Organic Farming Research Foundation, which fosters widespread adoption & improvement of organic farming systems.

Our commitment to you is to keep questioning, to find the good and deliver luxury, certified organics for every age.

After trying the line, we decided on two products that we knew our customers (that's you!) would love, the Sculpted Lip Oil - which made our lips feel softer than we ever thought possible, & Daily Facial Cleansing Cloths - what set these apart for us was that while most green beauty face wipes use smaller than average clothes, the Ogee cloths use a nice big full size cloth and it is refreshingly damp.

You can shop both these products by following the links above or come by the store to test them out for yourself! We are sure you will love them as much as we do!

Saving Face: Treating Your Acne

Posted by Bree Bruce

First, it's important for us to tell you that acne can be the result of so many different things, such as dehydration, eating fatty foods, hormones, stress, dirty hair and/or pillow cases, it can be cystic or genetic. Acne can even be a signal that something more serious is going on with your body, like kidney or digestive issues. There's no real one reason for acne. And we can't tell you how to cure yours. If you're a long time sufferer of acne you might want to consider seeking advice from a dermatologist.

If you've seen a dermatologist and/or you know for a fact that your acne is due to your habits and environment then we can help! Sometimes, the solution is as simple as establishing a solid skin care routine and sticking to it. Skin can be very particular and the slightest change in routine can trigger a break out.

It's important to have a solid skin care foundation: a cleanser, toner, and moisturizer. These items you will use twice a day, every day. Often times these items will be described as "Suitable for all skin types", "for normal to oily skin", "for dry skin", well you get the picture. It's important to pay attention to this when picking your products. For instance, if you have dry, sensitive skin you don't want to use a cleanser that states it's for oily skin, this will only further dry out and irritate your skin - potentially causing more break outs!

After you have a good routine in place, and you've given your skin time to adjust to the new products, it's time to introduce your acne treatment products. These can also be skin type specific, and "acneic" is not the only way to describe your skin type. Dry and oil skin alike can be acneic. We carry several gentle yet effective acne products, so keep reading for a detailed break down of each one!

Kypris Clearing Serum - Made to balance & soothe fussy, oily, or blemished prone skin and to calm shaved, threaded, or waxed areas. Clearing Serum enlists help from zinc, fruit derived AHAs, supportive Centella asiatica, soothing lilac leaf stem cells, inflammation taming green tea, lavender and chaparral, and an array of sustainably procured botanicals, for a calm, happy, and balanced complexion. This serum can be used alone as a sport treatment or all over the face or mixed in to your favorite moisturizer.

Pai Skincare Copaiba & Zinc Blemish Serum - This effective overnight treatment has been expertly formulated to treat breakouts without the irritating effects of traditional acne treatments. Copaiba's unique triple-action complex has anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties to target both the causes and effects of persistent blemishes. Whether used as an all-over Serum, or on-the-spot treatment - the gentle formula works with your skin to visibly improve blemishes, redness and an oily t-zone. By regulating oil production, Zinc helps reduce skin shine, blackheads and congestion and supports the skin's natural healing processes. Additional, Hyaluronic Acid deeply hydrates skin to maintain skin tone and suppleness. By protecting the skin's natural mositure barrier, Pai Perfect Balance Serum effectively targets blemishes without causing dry or flakey patches - leaving behind just clear, comfortable skin.

  • Calms inflamed blemishes in the gentlest possible way.
  • Reduces sebum production by up to 65%.
  • Protects skin's moisture barrier to prevent dry or flakey patches.

Indie Lee Blemish LotionThis talc-free drying lotion treats acne and blemishes, reducing redness, irritation, and inflammation. Ideal as an overnight spot treatment. This treament really sucks out toxins inside the pimple, and because it is just a spot treatment you don't need to worry about it over drying or irritating your face.

Indie Lee Blemish Stick - Banish blemishes on-the-go with this fast acting, acne spot treatment. A discreet, clear formula quickly helps to shrink the size of spots, reduce redness, and heal pores. 

Indie Lee Clearing MaskPurify clogged pores and congested skin with this gentle yet effective detoxifying mask. Fruit acids help eliminate dead skin cells while plant extracts nourish and protect. For anyone suffering from occasional to severe break outs this is an excellent product to add to your weekly skincare routine. Deep cleansing your pore not only helps clear and prevent break outs it also helps your pore appear smaller and skin texture to appear smoother.
