{What I'm Loving}

The base of the entire line is organic aloe vera, not water like most. What's most impressive is the way its hand, which is why its not cheap. This produces a light foam and I love the smell (like candy). Cleans thoroughly and leaves behind a fresh and soothed complexion. Great for normal/combo & oily types.

Sinks in immediately, no residue whatsoever and perfect to use alone for oily types or under a moisturizer if you have combo/normal or dry skin. Also smells like candy! (And I like the clean & simple packaging; matte, creamy white tubes with deep fushia and grey text).

Logona Facial Steam Bath

I add a few drops of this to a sinkful of warm water, hover my face above it in the steam and throw a towel over my head to open up pores to prep for a facial mask. I feel relaxed and my face glows after this at home spa treatment.

Logona Eye Makeup Remover

Removes shadow, liner & mascara quickly & easily without any irritation. Only a drop or two is needed on a cotton ball or Q-tip so I imagine this bottle could last up to a year.

Logona Clear Skin Fluid

Equally effective as an spot treatment or all-over moisturizer for blemished conditions. Many blemish treatments tend to be very drying, but not this. I use this at night and in the morning my skin feels totally hydrated and redness and spots are greatly diminshed, which I was very pleasantly surprised about. It has a faint mint smell which I like. Wish this came in a bigger size because I like it that much. This is one of my new all-time fave top products!

Suki Sensitive Cleansing Bar

May 2009 Update: Fig+Sage no longer supports Suki.  To learn why, read the comments on our SukiSpa post.  

{Wish List}

Although I haven't tried them yet, earlier this year Elle Magazine named Sante's Concealer Pencil the #1 Best Concealer in their Green Beauty Stars category and Allure Magazine awarded Jane Iredale's Circle/Delete Concealer the Best Concealer in their Natural Sections category (which of course means I'm going to have to try them both now to see for myself).

{Just Launched}

Today Nature of Beauty launched Intelligent Nutrients, the much anticipated USDA and Soil Association Certified Organic skin, hair & body line from Aveda founder, Horst Rechelbacher. This is of course great news for NOB, who is among a very select & small group of retailers approved to sell it.

Fun Fact: At the introductory lunch on June 11th in NYC, members of the press were shocked when presented with a special cocktail; a wineglass full of Intelligent Nutrients hairspray topped off with Pellegrino. Why you ask? "Hairspray is one of the most problematic beauty products in terms of toxins. I wanted to prove to the world that it's possible to make a great one that's also absolutely safe" said Horst. Apparently they still didn't dare drink it (he did), but they did use it as hairspray. The verdict? According to Lucky mag's September issue: "Fantastic touchable hold and an amazing scent to boot". Find the line here.

We broke the news about the I.N launch back on 6/11/08. In case you missed it, find the article here.
