2020 Christmas is all about wellness gifts.

Self-care is more important than ever and what better way to show love to yourself and others than with thoughtful body care products that are also sustainable, ethical cruelty free!

Charcoal has become very popular in the beauty world because it is well known to draw out bacteria, dirt and impurities from skin (and your gut too) – making it a great detoxing product.  

What better way to end the year and start a new one than with a cleansing detox and fresh face!

Esmi has one of my favorite detoxing lines; and can make a great and appropriate gift for family and friends for Christmas!

A DIY facial at home!

I love the Soft Skin Refining Charcoal Clay Mask by Esmi; it acts as a serious cleanse for the face. Environmental exposure causes an accumulation of oil and debris on the face; the charcoal and the clay in the mask act like a magnet for that debris and unclogs it – it literally sticks to the clay so you can actually feel your skin cleaner afterwards.

The Detoxifying Exfoliating Charcoal Serum by Esmi to be used with the Charcoal Brush by Esmi.

The serum is not meant to be used like usual serums; you are meant to put a small amount on your face for a short time then use the moistened brush to buff away the softened dead skin cells. You really see the difference very right away with smoother polished and brighter skin. This serum was actually meant to be used 5 days a week with a 2 day break. If you’re like me and have combination skin I use it a bit less and focus on the t zones not to over dry the rest of my face.

Another one of my favorites is our Poni Cosmetics Unicorn Blush. It’s a universally flattering shade, and gives that perfect flushed cheeks look for the holiday season. The palette itself actually blends peaches to pinks in an ombré look- a gorgeous gift for anyone. To top it off its VEGAN!

One of our unsung heroes, which has a global cult following, is our Carrot Color Pots from Ere Perez. My favorite shade is Poppy which allows for a sheer buildup (add more for stronger pigmentation) of a bright red. These pots can be used on the cheeks and the lips for natural glow. What most people don’t know is that they are filled with antioxidants that help keep you hydrated- also they fit in your pocket!

Last but not least on my list is one of our newest products that I am so in love with is Naskin Pods. The pods are made entirely from Konjac plants in Japan which is actually an eatable plant making it sustainable and awesome for your skin. A face pod (and body pod)` is one of those products you never knew how much of a difference it can make till you used one! Incorporating this gentle exfoliation into your routine will brighten up your complexion which occurs naturally as we age. This is also a great gift for men who would generally not stick to something that requires much effort – the pod is quick, easy and gives results.

Happy Holidays & Happy Shopping!
