The holidays are prime time to catch up with family, friends, and other loved ones. However, the whirlwind of activity may leave you feeling a little drained. Need a little pick-me-up after dealing with your nosy relatives and/or the overwhelming crowds? These three beauty products are sure to help you relax and unwind. Grab another cookie and treat yo self with three of Santa’s little helpers.
Founded by Amanda Chantal Bacon, Moon Juice is a California-based company that offers cold pressed, certified organic juices, raw and activated Cosmic Provisions (healthy food platters), and supplements such as raw vanilla and pearl.
The Beauty Dust is comprised of a “medicinal grade” formula that promises to give you glowing skin, shiny hair, and an overall radiant aura. Ingredients include goji (a berry from the lycium fruit), rehmannia (an herb sometimes known as Chinese foxglove), pearl, schisandra (a berry), and stevia. The beauty dust is actually a dark powder with the texture of pre-packaged hot cocoa mix. Once mixed into your tea or coffee, there’s very little difference in taste. The beauty dust is also low-glycemic, which basically means it contains less than three grams of sugar per serving.
Never underestimate the power of scent! Lotus Wei was started in 2000 by Katie Hess, a flower alchemist from the Minneapolis area. Guided by the philosophy of “transformative action for the benefit of all,” Lotus Wei offers portable aromatherapy with their carefully curated selection of oils, mists, and elixirs that aim to change your mood.
The certified organic Joy Juice Mist promises to solve the following spiritual and psychological ailments:
- Feeling the weight of responsibilities
- Over complicating things
- Repressing your inner child
The flowers captured in the mist include African Daisy, Birdsfoot Lotus, Chocolate flower, and Pink Spirea, in addition to red garnet. The mist can be sprayed on your sheets, pillows, clothes, etc. when facing a stressful situation. I used the Joy Juice Mist whenever I needed a moment of clarity. The anointing oil serves the same purpose as the mist, but it’s more of a short-lasting perfume. The oil is meant to be applied to your pulse points five times a day.
Who doesn’t love face masks? It’s the ultimate beauty tool for lazy beauty junkies. Founded by Linda Wang, Karuna sheet masks promise to “help restore the skin’s vitality by pushing serum deeper on the skin surface where ingredients are needed the most.” The anti-oxidant face masks can be purchased in packs of four, which is intended to last for a month. The clarifying face masks, also sold in packs of four, target clogged pores and excess oil. Having never used serum-based face masks before, I didn’t know what to expect. Fortunately, these masks are no-fuss solutions for problem skin.
