HELLO AND HAPPY FRIDAY!!

 

 

 

Ever since I started exploring the world of natural skincare, I’ll never forget those few companies that truly caught my eye and thought.. I HAVE TO TRY THEM!! Whether it was the sleek packaging, the positive energy I perceived from the founder, the simplicity in their ingredients or the fact that they offered only a handful of products that they perfected.. I was sold. 

 

Kari Gran is a company that caters to all your natural beauty needs, offering a oil serum, toner, cleansing oil, and natural lip balms that will completely change the look and feel of your lips. I’ll be honest, I’m not one who feels that you should stick to one line for all your beauty needs. I like to blend my products and switch them up, and much more so now after testing over 2,000 products.

 

What I can confidently say is that Kari Gran‘s boutique line of products are all that you need to achieve a healthy glow. If I needed perhaps an anti-aging product I would have to seek out another line to use, but for your basic skin essentials.. I could absolutely use this full line. For those looking to break into the world of natural skincare and leave the chemicals and cruelty in the dust I highly recommend checking out the Kari Gran skincare line. If you are not quite sure you’re ready to take the full financial commitment, Kari Gran offers smaller sizes to meet your beauty needs.

Kari’s Story

 

 

By my own admission, I am a beauty junkie—obsessed with beauty products since my teens. But after I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder in my late twenties I started taking a more informed look at what I was putting on my skin. I learned that, like a giant sponge, anything you put directly on your skin is absorbed right into the blood stream. It turned out that the beauty products I was using weren’t so pretty after all, but instead, chemical concoctions—many of them hormone disruptors.

 

My endocrine system did not approve. Undaunted, I began searching for natural alternatives. After finding an abundance of what I’ll call “earthy” products and plastic packaging I was left yearning for something simple, elegant and subtly scented—the little black dress of eco-skin care. Fast forward to my forties, when I started thinking about developing my own, personal, back- to-basics approach to elegant skin care by seeking out the fundamental ingredients our skin requires in order to thrive.

 

I have developed a thorough understanding of our most basic skin needs, as well as the elements that nourish a healthy complexion. Combining these elements with a simple, daily ritual yielded fantastic results.

My skin approved and I believe yours will too.

  At Kari Gran we believe that ingredients matter. All of our hand poured products are made using only the finest natural, organic, wildharvested and non-GMO ingredients and are free of parabens and toxins, (parabens and toxins in skin care have been linked to serious diseases, and are known to mess with the body and act as hormone disruptors).

 

Kari Gran products are both good for the body and the endocrine system. Each bottle is marked with a handwritten expiration date to guarantee freshness. An oil-based system made of all natural plant and essential oils, The Kari Gran line works to gently and safely nourish the skin. The products contain absolutely no water, ensuring you get only ingredients that matter.

CLEANSING OIL 

 

The Cleansing Oil contains a blend of natural ingredients formulated to deep clean while balancing the skins natural oil production. It is designed for use once daily, during the evening cleanse. Massage onto dry skin (wonderful and relaxing!), and then steam off with a hot (not scalding) washcloth, whisking away impurities.

 

 

THE RITUAL

  • Apply 8-10 pumps of Cleansing Oil into your dry palm.

  • Liberally massage onto dry face and neck.

  • Apply a hot (not scalding) washcloth to face and let cool. Rinse and repeat.

  • Gently wipe face and neck with the washcloth to remove excess oil while providing a light exfoliation.

HYDRATING TONIC 

 

Our hydrating tonics are a blend of soothing ingredients containing no alcohol. They will not strip or dry your skin like traditional toners. Available in Lavender or Rose, you can also mist it on any time for a pick-me-up if your skin is feeling parched. It also does a nice job of setting mineral makeup. A wonderful multi-tasker, use alone or with the serum to create your custom moisturizer.

THE RITUAL

  • Mist 3-4 pumps on cleansed face—damp skin will improve the absorption of our essential serum.

  • To make fresh moisturizer: mist 3-4 pumps into the palm and add one or more pumps of serum, rub together and apply to dry skin.

  • The tonic also sets makeup and is a lovely pick-me-up when your skin is feeling parched.

ESSENTIAL SERUM 

 

The Essential Serum is a potent blend of 15 plant and essential oils known for their nourishing properties, plus a boost of natural Vitamin E, providing customizable levels of moisture to the skin. The Essential Serum is the quintessential multi-tasker; it can be used in the morning and evening. For your evening treatment, double the amount you use during the day. It can also be used on the neck, décolleté and eye areas. In addition, for those who use mineral powder foundation, the Essential Serum can be mixed in the hand with the powder to create a tinted moisturizer.

 

HE RITUAL

  • Start with one pump for day use, add more if you like more moisture.

  • Double the amount used during the day for your nightly treatment.

  • Treat your neck and décolleté area as an extension of your face.

  • Apply extra around the eye area in place of an additional eye cream.

  • To create a custom moisturizer mist 3-4 pumps of tonic in the palm of your hand and add one to two pumps of Essential Serum, rub together and….voila! A batch of fresh moisturizer has just been made without a preservative in sight.

  • Gently apply to cleansed skin.

 

Tip: The Hydrating Tonic and Essential Serum work equally well in separate steps-spritz tonic on the face, pump the serum onto fingertips and apply to damp face.
