{What I'm Loving}

I've been using these five products for the past month:

Pangea Organics Egyptian Calendula and Blood Orange Facial Cleanser

I've been using this for a month now as my morning facial wash. Its creamy in texture with a pleasant citrusy aroma and doesn't leave my face stripped of oils (I need all I can get right now). This is one of E's favorite facial cleansers too and works equally as well in the hot months of summer as it does in the cold and dry days of winter, which makes sense since its created for all skin types. Not only is Pangea's packaging super hip, its sustainable and plantable and you can be sure no nasties lurk in any of their products.

Dr. Hauschka products have a cult following and known as a celeb favorite, used on countless movie and television sets. Biodynamic farming is at the heart of what they do and the BDIH-certified products they create. I love the herbal aroma of this toner and its great at keeping blemishes at bay. Great for oily or blemished skin.

Its pure. Its certified. A true multi-tasker....great for all skin types from dry to oily and acneic to aging. I use this alone in warm months and underneath (or mixed with) a moisturizer in cold months. Love this.

This line is created by a Swiss brand who are expert crafters of natural perfumes and steam-distilled botanicals. Its creamy in texture and while the description calls it "fragrance-free" it isn't completely without aroma. Its smells subtle and pleasant...with slight hints of vanilla and neroli. My skin feels totally hydrated after each use. (You won't find this anywhere else in the U.S.)

Extreme weather calls for extreme products and this has recently become one of my top picks for lip care this season. Thick and emollient - this helps heal and ward off cracked and chapped lips. For some reason I can't quite put my finger on, the smell and taste is comforting and familiar.

{Just Launched}
Suki: I'm glad Beautorium decided to carry both the skin care and cosmetic lines from one of my all-time favorite beauty brands. The Suki Sensitive Cleansing Bar is one of my new favorite products and its what I use to wash my face at night to wash off the day. As our faithful readers know, the Suki Exfoliating Foaming Cleanser is one of my must-have products and I currently use it twice per week. Products are certified natural / organic by ECOCERT.  *Update: None of the Suki products have ever been certified by ECOCERT.  Click here to read more.  
Sophyto Organics: This past October, I had the opportunity to use the majority of the Sophyto line. After using it for a month was pleasantly surprised how well my skin responded to it. It takes some getting used to washing without water, but my glowing results helped me forget that part. My personal faves are the Skin Energising High Potency Concentrate and Polyphenol Skin Drops. Products are certified organic by Soil Association.
