Natural and Organic Skin Care Of Hawaii
We just discovered Eavara, a natural and organic skin care line from the Big Island of Hawaii. The line was just awarded "The Best Anti-Aging Skin Care Line" by the American Choice Awards - the largest 100% consumer-voted product awards in the USA. Other finalists included L’Oreal, Burt’s Bees, and Olay.
Eavara supports local farmers, always validates effectiveness by science, and carefully selects eco-ingredients. All of its products are free of animal testing, parabens, propylene, sulfates, phthalates, dangerous colorants and fragrances, petroleum oils, and other harmful chemicals.
Eavara’s Organic Age Defying Moisturizer blends the finest organic oils and tropical botanical plants. It was designed to sooth, moisturize and protect your skin with nutrient-rich antioxidants like Coconut oil, Shea butter, Kukui Nut and Avocado oils. (29.95).
To be honest, I’ve never cared one way or the other about Eye Serums. I never really got the point, but I do like this Eavara’s Pure Paradise Eye Serum Cream, it’s made with Organic Jojoba Oil, Organic Shea Butter, Organic White Tea Extract, and Hyaluronic Acid. It feels really great on my skin and it works to reduce puffiness. ($25.95).
I really love Eavara’s Discover Paradise Botanical Facial Cleanser, it’s made with Organic Green Tea, Organic Tamanu Oil, Vitamin E, Organic Coconut Oil. It’s a great non-drying anti-aging cleanser that will leave your skin feeling soft, silky, and clean! ($19.95).
Every purchase from Eavara supports “Dream of a Better World.”, a worthy cause co-founded by three children who wanted to help other kids and make the world a better place. They have raised money to promote the understanding that you are never too young or too old to make a difference in the world. They are blogging and tweeting for awareness and fundraising.
Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream, now a Sunscreen
I’ve been using Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream for as long as I can remember. It’s one of my favorite hydrating creams and I couldn’t be more excited that it’s now available in a sunscreen formula, offering 24-hour hydration with SPF 30.
Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream Sunscreen SPF 30 was inspired by its sister product, Ultra Facial Cream, that can keep skin moisturized and comfortable for 24 hours.
Kiehl's says like its original formula it also contains Antarcticine, sourced in Antarctica that’s known to withstand extreme cold, and Squalane, a lipid derived from olives that has emollient characteristics that coat the surface of the skin and help hold on to moisture, as well as “Fountain Plant” (also known as Ophiopogon Japonicus Root Extract), a plant native to Asia known to resist drought.
This new formula leaves skin soft, smooth and healthy-looking, and protected with broad-spectrum SPF30 protection. I love it since it’s fast-absorbing, non-greasy, a fresh aroma, and paraben free. And, I feel confident that it's protecting my skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays. It’s available in store now and on kiehls.com
