I can be as simple with my skin as a sonic brush and oatmeal soap and then a layer of vitamin E oil straight from the capsule… but when I need to treat, to refine, to have more… I turn to Chantal Moore to introduce me to the lines that perform without the toxins that seem to do more harm than good. She tests products non-stop, always with a finger on the pulse of more natural beauty breakthroughs. Today, Chantal shares one of her favorite skincare discoveries… a line that is as gorgeous as it is effective!
From Chantal: This week’s Balanced Beauty is an introduction to another new favorite brand discovery of mine- January Labs Skin Essentials.
I discovered and started following January Labs on Instagram months ago. I was super intrigued with this natural, super-conscious, mindfully produced, results-driven skincare line developed by highly respected skincare expert and industry pro January Olds. January Labs Skin Essentials is entirely devoid of sulfates, parabens, artificial fragrances, and harsh chemical additives. Even the gorgeous packaging was mindfully thought out and is eco friendly, recyclable, and sustainably produced.
Here are a few of my favorite picks from the line:
One of my favorite product picks by January Labs is their fantastic Moisture Balancing Lotion. Super mild, this plant based lotion goes immediately to work, penetrating through dehydrated skin with a perfect finish. I am using this on set on all skin types. Reviews are fantastic. Perfectly balanced, the clean texture provides a fabulous pre makeup skin finish and leaves the skin nicely hydrated without any oily heaviness.
Another dream find for me is their Restorative Tonic Mist that literally saved my skin from a chemical burn acquired by testing another brand product on my face. I’m talking immediate relief. Free of alcohol, it softly hydrates and fights free radical damage, so it’s an excellent post-wash rebalancing toner. Likewise, their Retexturizing Night Cream sealed the skin healing deal for me because it never broke me out. My sensitive, break out prone skin is subjected to a whole lot of product testing on a daily basis and it completely loves this night cream. This, too, helped me overcome a rather horrific product-testing debacle.
Other product picks to check out and explore from the line are the Pure & Gentle Cleansing Gel powered by White Willow Bark. Also check out their skin rejuvenating, oxygenating Power Peel Exfoliant.
