Your Go-To Home Facial for Spring
During this third shutdown here in Ontario, we've been keeping busy by creating some fun new gift box options for you. Victoria, our gifting guru, seems to have an unending supply of gift box ideas, and my favourite so far has to be the Spring Facial in a Box
Spring Facial in A Box
Featuring some of our favourite lightweight and refreshing skin care products, the Spring Facial In A Box has everything you need for a five-step facial to leave your skin glowing.
Who It's For
Designed for all skin types, this gift box will work for dry, combination, and oily skin. (Note that if you're very dry, you might want to follow up with your favourite rich moisturizer.)
Why It's Special
Unlike brand-created gift boxes, making our own means we can curate the best products from a variety of brands, bringing you a unique skin care experience. This box features Canadian brands Amal, Artifact, Epic Blend, and Faerhaven, plus a special serum from New Zealand based brand Antipodes. And you can't beat the price - a $103.99 value for only $69.99.
How To Use It
Cleanse your face as usual. Mix about a teaspoon of the lava clay mask with enough water to make a smooth paste. Use the mask brush to apply a thin layer to your face and neck. Enjoy a book or a cup of tea while you let your mask work its magic. Rinse off with lukewarm water when your mask is almost dry, but not completely (10 to 15 minutes). Scrub your lips with a scoop of the lip scrub, and rinse (or lick!) off. Apply the hydrating serum and lip balm. Voila! Happy skin.
What to Pair It With
Cleanse before your facial with Fitglow's Cloud Ceramide Foam Cleanser, another great choice for all skin types. Create a spa-like ambiance with Faerhaven's Orange Blossom Candle, whose scent is subtle enough for small spaces like the bathroom.
Not sure if the Spring Facial In A Box will be right for you? Book a virtual skin care consult with our aesthetician, Melissa Menard. She'll discuss your skin care goals and preferences with you and create your custom skin routine.
