This calm Friday morning, by my first (and far from the last) cup of coffee with biscotti, I am thinking how grateful I am for the opportunity to share my green beauty discoveries, slow living lifestyle inspirations and creations on this blog, with all of you. This is so important to me – this flow of positive energy, support, dynamic and inspiration that comes both ways. I am over the moon excited to introduce you today to Skin Owl, extra empowering skin care brand that raises awareness to the core of self-care (where pure, nature-derived skin care is one of the essential components). Annie Tevelin, the skin care guru behind Skin Owl, mixes her knowledge, experience and enthusiasm to change one woman’s beauty regimen at a time into a wonderfully curated collection of skin care products. I’ve teamed up with Skin Owl to share my personal thoughts on some products from the line, but I also couldn’t stay indifferent to the brand’s name (from one birds lover to another).
Skin Owl has developed a face care system that is well-balanced, easy to follow (and to understand!). The range of Beauty Drops, 100% natural skin perfecting moisturizers, is build the way one can easily find the right variation for a particular skin type. It basically offers three different daily (AM) moisturizers for oily (Lavender), dry (Geranium) or mature skin (Clary Sage), and an ultimate overnight (PM) solution – Mangosteen oil serum. I’ve tried Lavender beauty drops*, as the best way to describe my skin would be
capricious combination, that always seeks some proper balance. With a very simple, yet highly concentrated ingredients list, this oil moisturizer targets inflammation, redness and sensitive spots to sweet talk and heal fast. I’ve noticed it absorbs pretty fast on my skin, I use about 5-6 drops in my morning routine. This oil can also be used for a night time, especially if you’ve got some serious skin negotiation to do, then it would be reasonable to double the amount of product and let your skin soak all the good stuff while you sleep. Additional way to use Lavender beauty drops would be on the skin after an intense sun exposure, on scratches or minor cuts to calm and help faster healing process.
Among ingredients : pure, raw, unrefined Kernel oil, organic French Lavender oil.
As I’ve already mentioned, for overnight face care Skin Owl has formulated the Mangosteen beauty drops*, that is a deep nourishing, re-charging and super relaxing oil serum based on two remarkable botanical sources – South African Baobab oil and Mangosteen oil. Not only they create a sweet, fruity aroma for the gentle skin lullaby, but they also provide anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties to correct, revitalize and promote ultimate skin health during your sleep. I love how comforting and warming this oil moisturizer is to my skin. I believe it would make a great skin treatment for all skin types. As fas as I can see, my sensitive skin adores it.
Among ingredients : organic African Baobab oil, Mangosteen oil.
Another Skin Owl creation to fall in love with is Eye +*, nourishing & youth stimulation eye concentrate. Well, yes, not only for your eyes! This cooling gel (store it in the fridge for even more blissful skin experience) has so much good stuff going on inside it’s ingredients list, and so positive intentions as well! This concentrate targets tired and dull skin under eyes, and transforms it into firm, re-vitalized and smooth complexion with the help of Hyaluronic acid, Licorice extract, Periwinkle, Cucumber, Aloe and other super natural powers. My skin barely feels it, this concentrate is extremely light and quick absorbing (which makes it much easier to apply makeup). Can be also applied on other areas too, such as forehead or cheeks to increase blood circulation and help minimize fine lines. Overall, great skin product, and it will last long – a little goes a loooong way!
Among ingredients : organic Aloe, Cucumber Distillate, Jojoba oil, botanical Hyaluronic acid, Periwinkle, Lycorice, Silk Protein Amino Acid blend, MSM, Vitamin E, Glycerin etc.
Just a few days ago in another post I’ve mentioned my true obsession with body oils, that is based on almost overnight skin improvements and an essential comfort feeling in my own skin. Yet today I’ve got another body oil to add to my beauty shelf rotation. Body oil* from Skin Owl is a superfood for dry, tired and lacking elasticity skin. Incredibly soothing vanilla scent and non-sticky warming formula enriched with lots and lots of pure botanical components, vitamins, anti-oxidants and moisturizing sources. Best to be applied right after the shower on a slightly damp skin for a deeper absorption, but you can also follow Annie’s advice to mix two pumps of oil with one tsp of brown sugar into a brightening body scrub and use it while in the shower.
Among ingredients : Safflower oil, Apricot kernel oil, Sweet Almond oil, Jojoba oil, Aloe oil, Vitamin E, infusion of Calendula, organic Olive oil, Rosemary extract, Neem oil, Rose Absolute, Vanilla, CO2 extract.
