WOODLAND + LAVENDER
The Essence of Woodland + Lavender was inspired by the wooded mountains in Altadena, CA. There is something about clean, crisp, sweet air that is both healing and soothing to the body and soul. You’ll find the aroma of this facial mask to be much the same as a stroll through the woods. Braving through a rare form of autoimmune, in which I endure photosensitivity and inflammation often. I wanted to create a powerful yet nurturing mask. As my research grew, and my trials persisted, I finally decided on a formula that I adore and proves successful in my treatment room as an esthetician. Some of my treatment guests also brave various inflammation of the skin parallel to: Acne, Eczema, Psoriasis, Lupus, Rosacea, Dermal myositis, and photosensitivity. I know I’m not available to see everyone every day, and I know my guests are busy with lives and families of their own. So, that is exactly why I wanted to create something so powerful and serviceable, so to speak. And now, upon request, my signature facial mask can be brought home for your facial between facials.
HIBISCUS + GROVE
Hibiscus + Grove is an invigorating blend of the sweet tropical scents of Hawaii & the sweet citrus vibe of Pasadena, CA. Both regions have a reputation of a weather so sublime that you wouldn’t want to be anywhere else but outdoors. The sun is a profound leading cause in hyperpigmentation and premature aging. So, I wanted to bottle some of the most powerful and stable profiles of vitamin C & other antioxidants which combat sun damage and aging. This hydrating facial mask will exfoliate, brighten, and improve circulation. It is powerful enough to help even the complexion, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles, but gentle enough to use at home and make you smile. Think of this brightening anti-aging mask as a facial between facials. As a gentle reminder, in addition to skincare remedies, sun protection is a crucial step in preserving the vitality & health of your skin.
The idea of eco packaging doesn't just have to be an idea. While eco packaging can be more on the expensive side, there are ways you can save, recycle, and personalize. I wanted that craft look. So i went to my cabinet full of Trader Joe's shopping bags and cut them to standard letter paper size. This was a bit tricky because old brown paper bags have alot of texture and bulk to them.After the bags were cut to size, I set my printer and printed the product story.
These resemble growth and repurpose.Much like how we grow in life. We repurpose ourselves and our hearts for the paths that become inevitably ours. These instructional note cards house little seeds that when planted, become flowers. Like the brown paper bags, they are bio degradable but also offer beauty and growth.
