the perfect night in
With Valentine's Day just around the corner, it's easy to get wrapped up in the process of seeking meaningful gifts for signicant others and friends, as well as planning special dinners and dates. During this month of love, however, it is also important to find ways to treat yourself. One of the best ways to do so? Spend a quality evening in a hot bath with a lovely scented candle, a luxurious mask and perhaps a glass of wine and a good book. While most of those elements depend on you, we do have a few candles and masks we can offer to make the self-care experience complete.
detox your space + your face.
This is the pairing to turn to when you need something to help decompress from a long day at work. You know the feeling – you get home exhausted and stressed, wanting to relax but every room is just a bit untidy.
First step, strike a match and light up that sage candle. Commonly associated with ancient smudging rituals, during which sage is burned to cleanse a space of negative energies, sage has a cool and herbaceous aroma that can help clarify the mind. Our sage candle helps bring peace and balance to your environment with a soothing blend of eucalyptus, lavender, orange and cedarwood.
Pair this relaxing scent with our detox face mask, which purifies and stimulates the skin with a profusion of foam and antioxidant-rich soy protein and green tea extract. In just 5 minutes, this oxygenating gel mask foams up to hydrate and soften skin all in one go.
clear your mind + your pores.
Life is for enjoyment, but there are times when we overindulge just a little – whether it's related to traveling, eating or socializing. To help yourself regain that feeling of being more grounded, we recommend burning our vetiver candle.
Distilled from the aromatic roots of a tall tropical grass, Haitian vetiver essential oil has an earthy scent that can prove both refreshing and comforting. Combined with hints of citrus and warm amber and guaiacwood, this candle has a beautiful cleanness that also helps restore balance to the mind.
After the mood has been set, treat your pores to a deep cleanse with our clarifying clay mask. Bentonite and kaolin clays help absorb excess oil and purify the skin while finely-milled pumice gently exfoliates away dead skin cells. Together, this pair is perfect for resetting the mind and body when life – despite all its pleasures – becomes a bit too stimulating.
brighten your mood + your skin.
Ideal for lazy Sundays, this final pairing is the perfect example of self-care. Bright and sunny, neroli candle truly lights up a room with its mood-boosting aroma. Equal parts fresh citrus, light florals and warm wood, this lush fragrance has the ability to emotionally transport one to summertime in the Mediterranean.
Equally uplifting is our brightening enzyme mask. An energetic orange in color thanks to an infusion of pumpkin enzymes, fruit extracts and specks of ginger root, this fresh gel mask gently exfoliates and, of course, brightens the skin. Formulated for efficiency, the mask can be washed off after just 5 minutes, revealing a complexion that feels both softer and smoother.
Together this pair is a treat for the senses, providing the feel-good energy that everyone needs to start a week on the right foot. Clear skin, full hearts, can't lose.
