Berlin Skin – Skin Care for the Modern Minimalist

Within the last few months my morning and nightly skincare routines have grown in the number of products I’m using (sometimes you just want to try everything!) which can become a problem making it necessary to scale back and reset. For me, once I begin to incorporate so many products into my routine, my skin comes to rely on what I’m giving it and it can be hard to go back. Introducing many products into your routine also creates a situation where if you begin to break out, the number of products and quadruple amount of ingredients they contain makes it difficult to figure out just who or what the culprit of the breakout is.

Lately, Berlin Skin has been my brand of choice for getting back to that simple ritual of core basics, although their products are everything but! Their tightly-edited skincare collection is fuss-free, but very sophisticated both visually and in formula. Berlin Skin’s products are made in small batches and formulated with high quality, sustainably-sourced ingredients including wildcrafted + organic botanicals and oils. Read more about Berlin Skin’s vision on minimalism + skincare, their core values, and how their products are made.

(Re)Introducing Okoko Cosmetiques! New Product Launch + Upcoming Webinar

okoko_cosmetiques

I originally introduced my readers to the French-Candian eco-chic Okoko Cosmetiques skincare range back in June when I shared my experience with their Mini-Kit I had won in a giveaway. Since the posting of my review, Okoko has added a brand new product to the line and have updated the packaging in their mini-kit to include amber and violet glass bottles and containers! Their brand new Sublime balm is being reformulated after its initial limited-edition launch, so in anticipation of its November 7th re-launch I want to introduce what this brand is all about, in addition to sharing the deets on Sublime!
