Amanda's Top 5 - March 2020

I am what you would call a cosmetic junkie, without a doubt. I am always trying new products to see what works and what would fit in with our current selection of products. I always test every single sample that gets sent to the store. If I don’t love it and am not passionate about it, I won’t bring it in. We have been getting some exciting new products lately and I am currently crushing over these 5 products. 

 

Le Prunier Plum Beauty Oil - I am seriously obsessed with this oil right now. My skin has been changing so much and this just feels so nice and hydrating without being oily, and it smells delicious! It's rich in essential fatty acids and phytochemicals, including polyphenols, that are powerful antioxidants and safe for all skin types. It's the perfect antioxidant booster and go-to product for glowing, healthy skin year-round. 

Le Prunier Plum Beauty Oil was created by 3 sisters and is a patent-pending blend of plum varietals from their 100-year-old California family farm which is the world's largest grower and producer of organic plums. Their father started the family farm that has been organic since 1985. They are USDA and CCOF organic certified, and they are also in the process of becoming ECOCERT organic certified. From start to finish - they maintain the highest ingredient authenticity and quality since everything is grown, harvested, cold-pressed and produced directly on their farm. 

Indie Lee I-Waken Eye Serum - I love to use this eye cream in the morning to help with puffiness and my dark circles, and I find it helps my concealer under my eyes glide on smoother. This little gem is a lightweight eye cream with  Squalane, Hyaluronic Acid, and antioxidants. Horse Chestnut, Mountain Ash Bud, and Witch Hazel to address dark circles and puffiness. Calming Chamomile, Arnica, and Cornflower soothe and refresh the delicate eye area. Antioxidant Spirulina and Blackcurrant Leaf extracts hydrate, nourish and protect, while powerful humectants leave skin with a more smooth and firm appearance. 

 

Herbivore Botanicals Coconut Sea Mist Texturizing Salt Spray - There are a lot of salt sprays out there, but this one smells like a dream! I have thick wavy/straight hair and this gives me enough texture without being crunchy and helps tame flyaways. I do admit I will spray it a couple of times throughout the day just because it smells so good. It is formulated with the same salinity as the Pacific Ocean and has this amazing beachy aroma with coconut and vanilla.

 

Fitglow Night Lip serum - My lips have been so dry lately with the weather changing and probably not drinking enough water, but this lip serum seems to be helping! I use it at night before I go to bed and wake up with soft lips. Fitglows Plant Ceramides formula restores lip moisture barrier while protecting from water loss. Organic pomegranate Plant Sterols, Beet Extract, and Vegan Collagen improve lip cell structure, increase lip volume and fight signs of aging. It is also a great clear lip gloss during the day!

 

Beneath Your Mask Heal Whipped Skin Souffle - *Coming Soon*

I am obsessed with this body souffle. It is a whipped texture that seems kind of dense, but once you use it is so moisturizing and it doesn't leave that greasy feel. A little bit goes a long way. It soaks into the skin nicely and has this wonderful light lemongrass scent. It contains anti-bacterial, anti-aging and antioxidant properties and has been formulated to hydrate and strengthen skin, combat the effects of aging, reduce the appearance of stretch marks, maintain skin’s elasticity, reduce inflammation and protect skin cells from damaging free radicals. It will help with eczema and severe dryness, and it is also a great belly butter for pregnancy and gentle enough to use on your kiddos dry skin too. 


Dana, the founder of Beneath Your Mask has such a unique and beautiful story. At 30 years old she was diagnosed with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE). Not just regular Lupus, but the more severe form that included Lupus Nephritis. She went through many different types of treatments and wanted to create products that made her feel good during those tough times. She sought to create products that were safe, non-irritating, and non-toxic for the skin to absorb and that would not challenge the immune system. Read more on her story here
