I’m caring for my skin this spring with 2 cucumber products I can’t get enough of from Azaki Organics. Azaki is a small batch, clean, skincare company with “results driven products”. I use the Cucumber + Niacinamide Toner to calm and soothe skin after cleansing. It helps to prevent environmental damage, and acne. The Niacinaminde helps to minimize the appearance of pores, fine lines, and uneven tone. Twice a week I use the Cucumber + AHA Jelly Mask. This mask cools and hydrates to revive tired skin. It is designed to exfoliate and soften. It helps to stimulate collagen production as well. So check out Azaki Organics if you want simple, clean, products that do what they promise, can’t say the same for your dates….

is now a good thing when it comes to skincare. Thanks to Typology and their innovative no b.s. all results approach. The line is sold exclusively online, direct to consumers, in order to offer the highest quality at the best price. The line is like a chic french apothecary meets the Ordinary….but better. “Our philosophy is not to add anything to our products to make them stand out; instead we pare them back and distil each formula down to the most-essential, natural active ingredients.” The line is natural and sourced from sustainable farms using gentle extraction techniques. I will touch on a few of my faves from the line, but I strongly suggest checking out all they have to offer on their site. The 7 Ingredient Micellar Water quickly removes makeup and grime. I use the Hydrolate Organic Orange Blossom, which is a gentle essence that revives tired skin. Next I use the Antioxidant Serum 3% Ferulic Acid + 3% Resveratrol, to firm skin and fight aging. I wait a minute or two and follow with the Radiance Serum 11% Vitamin C, to increase radiance. One of my favorite’s in the line is the Eye Serum 5% Caffeine + 5% Niacinamide. It’s a circulation boosting eye serum that fights dark circles. It’s extremely lightweight and absorbs instantly. I’m somewhat obsessed with the Radiance Night Serum Botanical Blend with White Rose. It is an overnight Oil that boosts radiance and regenerates skin while you sleep. It feels ultra luxurious. It is a must add to cart. The bottles are beautiful and look great out on the counter. So say oui’ to Typology, and let this French brand be your new crush…

your skin with No 7’s Radiant Results Purifying Toning Water. I found this product becuase I was looking for a low cost, effective toner to prep my skin for next steps and balance my ph. It is designed to give you more radiant, healtheir looking skin by reducing the appearance of pores and evening out your complexion. Skin feels refreshed and toned, but not dry or shiny. If you are new to the toning game, this one is an easy choice. So tone up with No 7, and leave the old school drying toners in the past…

for Moon Juice’s Acid Potion. This resurfacing exfoliator is strong and effective. I found it because I was looking for a less expensive more natural substitute for my P50 addiction. Many people have said it’s comparable if not better. I had to see for myself. The owner created the company becuase she had an auto immune disorder that she was driven to put in remission. “Moon Juice bridges the world of alchemy and biology for functional benefits.” The Acid Potion is designed to be used like a toner. It actively resurfaces skin with 5 acids and many botanicals. It is 25% AHA+BHA. It also has Niacinamide, Tocotrienols, Lactic Acid,Salicylic Acid, and adaptogenic Reishi. I definitely noticed smaller pores and fresher skin.  So get with Moon Juice, and get over ineffective products…

hydration and purification. I love trying new toners for my skincare routine. Recently I’ve been interested in getting into the Essence game. So the perfect bridge for me was Algenist’s Hydrating Essence Toner. It uses their patented Alguronic Acid (from Algae), plus Witch Hazel and Chamomile. The toner/essence smoothes, hydrated, and purifies skin. I have been impressed with many products from this line. So get with Algenist and have that certain essence about you ;)….

accomplish more. That is the motto behind Swell Skin. They believe “a powerful foundation is necessary for powerful products. Our foundation relies on the abundance of antioxidants and omega fatty acids found in the powerful, rejuvenating oil of the sea buckthorn plant.”  Head over to their site to read about the many reasons why they love this powerful ingredient. My favorite products in the line are the Tight & Toned Radiant Pore Exfoliating Toner and the Dry Body Oil Moisturizer. The Toner uses Green Tea, Aloe, Chamomile, and Glycolic Acid to smooth, and reduce the appearance of pores. It exfoliates and brightens while balances skin’s PH. The Dry Body Oil hydrates and nourishes while absorbing fast. It has a fresh scent and is full of antioxidants, vitamins, and fatty acids. So do less, and relax into beautiful skin…

Pai Skincare is made in London and my Miami skin can not get enough of it! The line is created for sensitive skin, but benefits all types. Their Light Work Rosehip Cleansing Oil is quickly becoming one of my favorite oil cleansers. It removes all makeup, with no eye irritation. I love that when you rinse it off there is no oil residue left on the skin. I follow that with the Rice Plant & Rosemary BioAffinity Tonic. It refreshes and rebalances skin and brings it to the correct pH. It is rich in vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. Then comes the amazing Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil. This oil gives your skin an immediate glow. Andean Rosehip oil is rich in Omegas 3,6,7, & 9. It has antioxidant carotenoids to repair and protect skin. This oil is “packed with twice the regenrative sterols and five times more carotenoids than your average cold pressed rosehip seed oil” So try out Pai products, and don’t be so sensitive ;)….
