Lately my skin has been feeling drier than usual and my skincare routine hasn't been able to do anything about it.
Maybe it's the change of seasons, maybe it's the move, maybe it's the water in my new home. But anyways, it was time for a switch!
I like to keep a list of brands and products I'd love to try some day. I prefer not buy them in advance as I want to make sure that the products I use are the freshest possible (natural products usually have a shorter shelf life).
So without further ado, here's a list of women-owned natural skin care brands I love & support:
Natural Science Beauty

I met Natural Science Beauty founder Kelly Casey a couple years ago and got to sample her products at local shops here in Portland. Natural Science Beauty is a handcrafted, organic, and wildcrafted body care line that nourishes your skin's natural glow by using plant-based and food-grade ingredients. Natural Science products are scented with essential oils, bringing pure nutrition to your skin and good vibrations to your day.
On my shopping list: Matcha Velvet Face Mask

As a woman-owned and herbalist-operated company, lagom body co. is proud to procure the majority of the ingredients in their skincare from north american farmers, growers, and distillers who care about the land and growing their own plants and herbs whenever possible. I once attended a gathering at Kristen's house - where I had the chance to participate in my first flower mandala - and have been following her work ever since. Kristen's approach to formulating skincare is a synergy of thoughtful creation, vibrant ingredients, and healthy plants that, together, translate into beautiful, natural products that you can add to your daily ritual for truly healthy + balanced skin. I am bummed she's moving to the other side of the country (hint hint, there's a moving sale going on!), but I cannot wait to follow her new adventures closer to family.
On my shopping list: Nirvana Daily Face Cream

I was once gifted a sample of Berlin Skin's sandalwood cream at an event 2 years ago and have been obsessed with it ever since. The minimalist aesthetics definitely caught my eye and helped me remember the brand when I was on the lookout for a new skincare routine. I absolutely agree with founder Monica's german grandmother’s age-old advice: keep it simple and don’t strip the skin of its natural oils.
On my shopping list: Cocoa Eye Butter
