For many, natural skincare is not just a trendy thing, it’s a must-have. At advicesisters.com I get a lot of natural products to consider. But once in a while, I find brands that I don’t know well. When I try their products, I just have to share them! Today’s story has three different natural skin care products to consider. Lisa V. Holistic Skin has an awesome eye cream. Sweat Powder from Kaia Naturals has a proprietary technology inspired by sweat-absorbing hand chalk used by elite athletes. Attitude has a bunch of SPF sunblocks including this one for sensitive skin that’s eco-friendly. I think your skin will thank you for trying these natural skincare brands.
Natural Skin Care From France:
I initially met the glamorous Lisa Vancoppenolle at a fashion show event in Sarasota at the Bird Key Yacht Club. She mentioned that she had a skincare line. Fast forward a bit and I’ve just received some products from Lisa V Holistic Skin. The products are formulated in the mountains of France and hand-distilled at a 250-year-old-farm. That sounds so romantic, doesn’t it?
Lisa sent me her Roots & Shoots Eye Creme with renewing botanical stem cells. The product also has caviar extract and algae stem cells for increased hydration. Lisa says in her lovely note on a lovely card that if your eyes are dry or irritated, only nutrition (blood flow) will improve the problem. So she sent extra caviar, seaweed, and amber to mix into the cream. She suggested I use it 2-3 times a day and keep it in the fridge so it will also work as an anti-inflammatory.
The website also says that you can apply the cream around the lips to restore contour and reduce lines. I tried it and frankly, didn’t see a ton of difference. But in all fairness, I can’t try anything like this long enough to see results. Patience is a virtue, so if you want to try it, why not? The ingredients are non-toxic, so no worries.
Lisa has three pages of natural products on her website including donkey milk soaps. OMG are these donkeys adorable! A bunch of products also feature Helichrysum (aka. immortelle- a flower that renews itself). Intrigued? Visit https://lisavholisticskin.com/
Underarm Odor? No Sweat Powder:
Sweat Powder from Kaia Naturals is another unusual natural product. A proprietary Thessalite 6 Powder Technology is inspired by sweat-absorbing hand chalk used by elite athletes. This is the last step in a 3-step odor-eating treatment. First, the underarm bar, then the Takesumi detox® charcoal deodorant, and finally, Step 3: the sweat powder.
We requested just this last step item. But what I really love is that this travel-friendly odor and moisture protection product is that it’s attractive and easy to use. Pull off the cap and there is a brush that dusts the natural product to whatever body part you wish to protect from odor.
Uses it on your feet, thighs, under your boobs, or wherever else you sweat. No worries as you can also get refills! That is just so luxurious! It’s also vegan and cruelty-free with two essential oils blends: crisp linen or sakura blossom.
What’s In It?
The fine-ground magnesium carbonate powder is talc-free. It soaks up sweat, zinc oxide reduces chafing. Apple cider vinegar, a natural antimicrobial, also helps to keep odor at bay.
What’s Not in It!
Talc. Baking Soda, Aluminum, Synthetic fragrances, Parabens, or Alcohol. Who doesn’t love this?!! The Sweat Powder is $35 at Ulta.com, Credo Beauty, The Detox Market & kaianaturals.com.
Get Some Eco-Friendly Attitude:
Attitude is more than just striking a pose. Attitude is also an eco-friendly sunscreen. In August 2022 we wrote about the fact that Attitude had just launched the first plastic-free and waterless mineral suncare collection featuring cardboard packaging. Some of their luxurious products were praised in our “Unique Sunscreens” story. Their untinted mineral sunscreen sticks feature non-nano zinc oxide in SPF 30. They’re also vegan, cruelty-free reef-friendly, and lightweight so great for travel.
While we already reported on the Attitude Tropical Mineral Sunscreen stick SPF 30, a lip balm (SPF 15), and their unscented Face Stick SPF 30. Advicesisters.com just received another good-for-your-skin-and-the-planet sunscreen from Attitude, This one is for sensitive skin, SPF 30 with clean ingredients. The active is non-nano zinc oxide. Oat extract helps to pamper dry and sensitive skin.
I really like the plastic-free, reef-safe cardboard push-up packaging. It’s lightweight and portable-friendly. But the unscented sunscreen is designed for those with sensitive skin with a hypoallergenic formula. Of course, the Attitude products are Unscented, PETA Certified, Vegan, and cruelty-free. Face it, it’s worth a little more for a Face Sunscreen Stick that really delivers! Visit https://attitudeliving.com/
Fact: I didn’t know that there is actually a Natural Products Association. If you are really into natural products, this is a good resource to learn more.
