I’m so excited for the newest addition to our face category – the Clarifying Clay Mask. I have an oily/problematic skin type, so breakouts for me are inevitable. This gentle and hydrating clay mask uses kaolin clay to draw out impurities, while arnica and witch hazel calm and balance oil production. Personally, I love that afterwards my skin doesn’t feel completely stripped and tight, which is never a good sign. I’ve recently discovered that I have a heavy hand while applying masks, so I give it 10-15 minutes to dry before I then, BUFF IT OFF. That’s right; this guy has pumice in it too, so it serves as a scrub. To paraphrase, we now have an all-in-one Cleanser + Scrub + Deep Pore Cleanse.

It’s obvious why this product fits easily into my regimen, but dry/sensitive skin types can benefit from it as well.

Pam has dry skin, and uses the masks as a clarifying deep pore cleanse once a month.

Mr. Greenberg just enjoys the luxurious and soothing experience after a long day in the office. (Just kidding, the Clarifying Clay Mask is for human use only.)

 

Whether it’s from heavy makeup use, intense workouts at the gym, or hot NYC summers, all skin types suffer from congested pores and need a good deep cleanse every once in awhile. Thanks to the hydrating properties like sunflower extract, your skin will feel supple and soft.

How do you gel?

How do you gel?

That is the question…

A modern interpretation of the “old school” styling gel, our Firm Hold Gel complements our hair care assortment for women and men with sensitive skin and scalp concerns. If you are looking for a firm hold with maximum control and sculpting, look no further.

This is ideal for transforming natural texture (i.e. curly to straight) or sculpting in a shape.

We asked our staff how they use it and what they love about it…

Sarah G.

My hair is usually very straight, but that changes when NYC humidity kicks in. The Firm Hold Gel tames the frizz and adds volume without drying my processed locks. I work a quarter-sized amount through dry hair, and I am good to go for the entire day.

Alessia

I have a lot of hair, so I apply a liberal amount in three sections after towel blotting. I love it because it defines my curls with no crunchy feeling.

I use the Peppermint Shampoo and Cilantro Hair Conditioner in the shower, leaving the Cilantro Hair Conditioner in for texture.  I put in the Firm Hold Gel when I still have a wet head and then blow dry my hair to a light dampness.  I then comb my hair and head out for the day – 12 hours later, my hair’s still in place.

The Firm Hold Gel however gives me a more polished look for when I’m dressed up formally and am looking for that all day hold with a healthy shine. After washing my hair, I towel it dry but leave it slightly damp. Then I’ll run a little over a dime sized amount of the gel and work it through my hair. I’ll also blow dry everything in place if necessary.

Freezing temperatures do not just mean heavier coats and scarves; they also mean dry, itchy, and flaky skin. Being a Southern transplant, I was really thrown for a loop when my normally oily skin actually became dry and flaky during my first intense New York winter. I learned the hard way, and now I start prepping my skin about a month before the colder temps hit with oils, serums, and heavier creams just to be safe. Here are my suggested steps to “winterproof” your skin.

First things first, I scale back to cleansing just once a day at night in these brutal winter months. I’ve also integrated the Facial Cleansing Oil into my nightly regimen. This deep pore cleansing oil has grapeseed, avocado, and olive oils to hydrate, and lavender and eucalyptus to kill bacteria and refresh. Just add water to emulsify and rinse clean! Bonus – this oil also removes a full face of makeup too.

My skin is left feeling clean, yet lightly hydrated. Next, I apply one pump of our Replenishing Face Serum. This 2% sodium hyaluronate serum draws moisture in deeper and is the perfect booster for your everyday moisturizer or night creams. Which leads me to my final step, a rich damage-repair focused night moisturizer that’s richer and loaded with lots of vitamins – our Replenishing Face Cream. On days that I’m super dry or really wanting to dose my skin with moisture, I add a pump of our Chamomile Treatment Oil to the Replenishing Face Cream.
