Department Spot Light: Courtney’s Favorite Beauty Products
As the Buyer for Body care for the last 8 years, I have pretty much tried almost everything that has been on our shelves here or is currently available for sale. My love and obsession with beauty products has always been a part of my life and I have been exclusively using natural body care since I was 18. Here are some of my favorite products that I use on a regular basis, all of which can be found in the Wellness department!
Mineral Fusion Hair Repair Beauty Balm: Mineral Fusion came out with these hair beauty balms earlier this year and I really like them. The hair repair one is great if you have dry, damaged hair from too many color processes. It’s a multi-use styling cream that protects against frizz and hydrates your hair. A little goes a long way and the price is very reasonable.
Suki Exfoliate Foaming Scrub: This is without a doubt, the best facial scrub that I have ever used. It’s a sugar scrub that you mix with water and use until all the sugar turns into foam which you then rinse off and proceed to have the cleanest, softest skin of all time. You can also use it as a body scrub when you travel.
Suki Tinted Moisturizer in Porcelain: I have been using this as my moisturizer staple for 2 years. It is perfect for my combination skin as it is very light and also neutralizes redness and the appearance of blemishes.
Desert Essence Cool Mint Whitening Plus Toothpaste: Whitens without chemicals and is the mintiest toothpaste I have ever experienced.
Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Snake Oil Perfume: I usually do not leave my house without a scent on my skin and this is one of my most used and most favorites from Black Phoenix. The description for it is: A blend of Indonesian oils sugared with vanilla. Sometimes people will follow me around wherever I am to ask me what I am wearing when I have this on.
Suki Butter Cream Salve: This is the best multi-purpose salve of all time as far as I am concerned. It’s a rich balm but it does not leave your skin greasy upon application. There are a lot of healing, anti-inflammatory herbs in here but the star ingredient to me is the arnica extract, which will take swelling and bruising out of any area that is problematic. This is my favorite thing to use for new tattoos and an overall departmental favorite for dry skin and sunburns.
Chasworth Farms Sea Salt Soap: My most favorite, favorite bar soap! It’s a combination of coconut oil, olive oil, almond oil and sea salt in a gorgeous bar that smells like the ocean.
Acure Unscented Ultra-Hydrating Body Lotion: I used to only use lotions that had a lot of scent to them. Now that I have amassed such a large collection of perfume oils, I love to use unscented lotions so they don’t interfere with my other scents. This lotion is chemical free, affordable and super hydrating.
100% Pure Blueberry Mascara: I have been using this mascara for a long time and now we are selling it here in the store! the formulation is light but it lengthens my lashes and doesn’t irritate my eyes. The blueberry color is dark blue which I love but there is also a purple (blackberry), brown (dark chocolate) and a black as well.
