The Advice Sisters love Kniepp for their fragrant, effective and spa-style beauty, bath and body products. Kniepp was founded by Sebastian Kneipp in 1891 making him one of the forefathers of aromatherapy and naturopathic medicine. If you’re seeking a serious skincare splurge that won’t set your budget back to zero, these products from Kneipp will become beloved”keepers.”
The Kneipp 24 hour Face Cream Reactivation ($30/ 1.69 oz.) is thick and luxurious in the jar. It’s so thick it feels almost solid. The key ingredients in this vegan product include lady’s mantle, a pretty green plant you can grow in your garden, choc full of antioxidant benefits.
A little goes a long way, simply massage it in your face, neck and decollete until it’s absorbed. There is a bit of a residue, but for very dry skin it is particularly great as it will remain on your skin for hours — up to 24 of them!
Facial Peel Powder
Facial peel powders are not a new concept, but the Kneipp Enzyme Peeling Powder Reactivation with Lady’s Mantle ($20 /.61 oz.) will gently slough off any rough spots on your skin.
This product has plant-based functional ingredients including lady’s mantle, and also talc. To use it, put some powder in your palm, add water to create a foam, gently apply to your face and massage it around. Wait about 5 minutes (you’ll feel some tightening) and then rise it off–blackheads will be gone and your skin will be super soft.
It’s also kind of fun to use since it’s not the usual cream, lotion or liquid formula and even those with sensitive skin can use it.
The flip top bottle doesn’t seem huge, but you only need an amount about the size of a dime to a quarter for the face and neck. Your skin will feel amazing but won’t be irritated.
Almond Blossom for Face
Kneipp has a lot of Almond Blossom Products with a light floral fragrance. In our photo above you’ll see the Kneipp Almond Blossom Face Tonic ($15/ 6.76 fl. oz.) for mild cleansing and softer skin.
This mild liquid cleanser, like Miceallar Water, requires nothing more than a cotton pad (no water or soap).
It feel silky, soothing and luxurious!
For those who prefer more traditional cleansers, try the Kneipp Almond Blossom Cleansing Milk ($15/6.76 fl. oz.) that gently cleanses without drying out the skin, thanks to nourishing almond oil and Vitamin E. .
Fragrant Bath Soaps
Bathing should be a pleasure and it can be, for pennies a day, with a luxurious Kniepp Bath Bar ($5/ 4..77 oz.)
These generously sized and fragrant solid soaps are vegan, and contain essential oils and are mild cleansers that smell divine.
One of the loveliest (bring a bunch this Summer to your weekend host or hostes) is the Relaxing Lavender, or enjoy the light floral fragrance of almond blossom.
For the body we suggest the Almond Blossom Body Lotion ($18/6.76 oz.) in a flip top tube (not shown in the photo above).
The body lotion in a flip top tube is also scented with that luxurious and soft, light floral almond blossom fragrance.
You’ll enjoy a lightweight body lotion leaves that beautiful fragrance on your skin as it soothes and hydrates.
