"The skin, like the body, has the extraordinary ability to heal itself. Our job is to facilitate that regenerative process and administer the right natural elements to increase, support and accelerate that incredible transformation for your ultimate luminosity, vitality and health."
ABOUT THE LINE
Josh Rosebrook and his team have selected herbs and oils in each product that contain a potent, synergistic combination of active plant nutrients designed to quickly improve and transform the appearance and health of the skin and hair. The base of the skin care line are anti inflammatories and antioxidants. The skin needs to be calmed and soothed with anti inflammatories so that its own natural, balanced healing process can ensue and visible changes can occur. Antioxidants neutralize molecules that damage the fibroblast cells. These fibroblasts produce collagen and elastin protein - the cells that make up the foundation and structure of the skin. These are crucial proteins that make the skin full and firm. Read more about Josh's philosophy on skin and scalp here - MY APPROACH.
NUTRIENT DAY CREAM SPF 30
This dual-action day cream performs as a regenerating moisturizer and natural, broad spectrum sunscreen. It's luxurious, lightweight and finishes matte, smooth and comfortable without a white cast. All skin types including oily and acne prone can benefit from this product.
I was so anxious to try this day cream because I have never been an avid sunscreen applier. I do think that getting the right amount of Vitamin D is so vital for body/skin health. Any time I am outdoors for an extended amount of time, I do think it is important to apply sunscreen if it is healthy and non-toxic. I've always been a little hesitant to apply a generic drugstore sunscreen due to the amount of chemicals packed in to each bottle that are instantly absorbed. For me, I feel like I am super sensitive when it comes to certain products. I haven't seemed to pinpoint the exact ingredients that affect me negatively but the more I am researching, I am just trying to stick with as natural as possible within my means. When I applied this product, I did not get what I call a "stuffy head." When I apply most toxic sunscreens, I would get this instant stuffy feeling in my head...like my skin couldn't breath and then it would naturally turn into a mild headache. I am so pleased with this Nutrient Day Cream. It applies so smooth that I have been giving in to many more makeup free days because it feels THAT good on my skin! I have had zero "stuffy heads" when wearing this product. When you read the ingredients that I tagged below, you will see how many amazing ingredients in it that moisturize your face while protecting from harmful sun rays. I will be including this product into my habitual routine.
VITAL BALM CREAM
Vital balm cream is a uniquely effective, powerful moisturizer that combines the occlusive, naturally breathable benefits of a balm with the absorption and luxury finish of a cream. Formulated for normal to dry, dehydrated, and sensitive skin - all ingredients are non comedogenic, but skin types who congest easy or are acne prone should sample first.
MY NEWEST FAVORITE MOISTURIZER! Honestly, I don't know if it is the scent of this product, the cool blue color, or just how this product feels on my skin that has made it one of my favorite face moisturizers yet! Again, I'll tag the ingredients below for you to see for yourself but geez Louise I love this product. In my cheeks, I get some redness from time to time from hormonal changes in the month. When I apply this, it seems to cool my face down while giving some relief to the inflammation that follows the hormonal changes. The finish on the skin is not heavy, and absorbs quickly. The scent...where do I begin? The scent is minty, floral, fresh. Good enough to eat..haha! (kind of not kidding) So you bet, I will be including this product into my habitual routine.
