The days are (just) starting to get longer again, but Winter is far from being over. Cold, heat, sun, and wind can really wreak havoc on your skin. There are so many companies today that boast they are passionate about natural products that do no harm to your skin or the planet. One company I recently discovered that I really can get behind, is Clean Beauty by Ana-K. If you’re “itching” to get rid of dry skin, their Wellness Kit should be on your radar.
What is Clean Beauty by Ana-K?
Clean Beauty by Ana-K is vegan, mineral, and organic and also offers a focus on being natural and kind to your skin and the planet. I recently received the Wellness Kit ($63) and I’m impressed! The products are non-toxic and free of carcinogens, sulfates, parabens, and DEAs. They are also cruelty-free and organically harvested. The products are created for various skin concerns because one size fits all in skincare rarely fits all. I also like the gender-neutral packaging with silver tops and soft gray and white labels with grass-green accents.
Body Wellness Kit:
Right now we’re all itching (no pun intended) to soothe our dry skin .Advicesisters.com received the Body Wellness Kit ($63) that’s good for all skin types. It makes a great gift idea, but also a little splurge for your own use.
Three body-loving products.
The Ana-k Clean Beauty Kit helps you begin your day with a 2 fl. oz travel sized Revitalize Lavender & Sage Body Wash. It has a bunch of skin-loving ingredients such as shea butter, essential oils of rosemary, cajeput, lavender, and sage invigorate. The cleanser is gentle and makes you feel pampered with calming lavender and a hint of sage to make you feel ready to face whatever comes your way.
Work your way into the big 11.5 oz. jar of Lavendar & Sage Body Scrub that exfoliates all that dry dead skin to give it renewed glow. It also has lots of moisturizing oils and an invigoratingly herbal thanks to clary sage oil. The key ingredients are all good for your skin: Rosemary, Cajeput, Lavender, Sage Essential Oil, Israeli Dead Sea Salt, and Mediterranean Sea Salt plus luffa fruit powder, organic sunflower seed oil, Vitamin E, and lavender. Mix the oils from the top into the jar and massage a generous amount into your skin.
When I come across an ingredient I’m not familiar with, I look it up. I had never heard of Cajeput. Most of the Cajeput oil is distilled from the leaves and twigs of a tree mainly from the Indonesian island of Sulawesi. Supposedly has antiseptic and antibacterial qualities.
Continue your skincare routine with the 2 oz. jar of Body Butter. The key ingredients in this one are Rosemary, cajeput, lavender, sage, and soothing aloe vera. The light, lavender scent with a hint of sage elevates the scrub and makes it a nice and pampering body treatment!
The Bottom Line:
The Wellness Set isn’t gender-specific. It’s a nice little set for yourself to try out the products. But it’s a nice gift idea, too. However, you can also purchase full sizes of these and plenty of stand-alone skincare and body care items. To decide what you want to buy, there’s also a little quiz you can take online to determine which products are best for you. Ana-k will then send you your results based on your answers. You can also book an online consultation by appointment.
Some of the products (e.g. the serums) serums are quite pricey. But you can get samples (of some items) for just a few dollars to see if you want tot to invest in the full-sized items. For the most part, the prices are reasonable. All of this is enough to really make me give it two thumbs up. Check out Clean Beauty by Ana-k online!
