Lulah Magnolia Fig Hand Cream ($9) – New from Thymes, Lulah is a “fashion-fragrance brand” that features a fresh, flirty & fun assortment of strikingly luxe aromatics and skin-enhancing ingredients at everyday prices. With the natural goodness of shea butter and vitamin E, this ultra-rich moisturizing cream not only leaves your hands feeling soft, smooth but also entices your senses with the signature scent of sun-drenched nectars. Lulah’s No-Nos : parabens, phthalates, petrolatum, mineral oil, propylene glycol, SLS/SLES, or animal derived ingredients.
BLEND Collective Enlivening Lip Balm ($15) – BLEND collective is a new natural bath & body care brand from Sussex, England that has recently arrived stateswide. The exquisite product range has been blended by a team of well-known aromatherapy and perfume experts from the UK and is now available exclusively at Barneys New York stores. Packed with Shea butter, Pomegranate and Rose Hip seed oil and a 100% pure blend of Sicilian lemon, Myrtle and Lime essential oils, this all-natural balm helps to hydrate and treat your lips as it replenishes lost moisture without feeling heavy or greasy… a great pick if you want to steer clear of the chemicals in your usual lip balm.
Surface Skin Acai & Blueberry Body Lotion ($28) – Surface haircare has now expanded into skincare with a sulfate, paraben and phthalate-free line of eco-friendly products with anti-aging benefits. With Acai Berry and Babassu Seed Oil as the key ingredients, this antioxidant-rich hydrating body lotion has been formulated to revitalize and protect skin from environmental damage and premature aging. And it’s also gluten-free which is now a BIG plus for me (I’ve recently been diagnosed with Celiac). The formula is really moisturizing without being greasy on skin. My only gripe is the scent that’s too sweet and fruity for me. The line also includes an Acai & Poppy Seed body wash that has a sulfate-free, moisturizing formula with poppy seeds to gently scrub and exfoliate for smoother, more refined skin texture. Surface Skin is available exclusively at professional salons nationwide. You can use the salon locator on surfacehair.com to find a salon closest to you.
