Most recently, I've been using products from White & Elm, a skincare company known for their 100% natural and nontoxic ingredients.
Beside the feel (& look) of their brand, here are some additional things I love about this line:
- cruelty-free & vegan (perfect for all of you animal lovers)
- GMO free
- 99.9% organic
- gluten-free (for those of you that have an intolerance, allergy or celiac disease, you must also be thinking about what you're putting on your skin)
- all of their products are made with love; meaning small-batch, handcrafted, and local.
I've been washing with their Sunflower Deep Pore Cleansing Oil (pictured above) every night and falling in love with the way my skin feels over and over again. This oil is crafted with only 8 ingredients. (In fact, every formulation from White & Elm contains 10 ingredients or less.) Sunflower oil, one of the product's main ingredients, combats acne and helps to prevent future breakouts. This cleanser, which can also double up as a makeup remover, leaves my skin feeling soft & silky, with a healthy glow. [For best results, massage for about 1 minute into damp skin, then cover with a warm cloth until it cools.]
Alongside this cleanser, I've been using their Pomegranate Renewing Eye Serum. High in flavonoids and punicic acid, pomegranate oil helps to regenerate skin. This serum is intended to brighten and renew the eye area. Dark circles have always been my nemesis - and thus far, this serum is actively working to reduce them.
