New Year, New Skin! Your 2024 Skincare Guide

Products & Tips

No time like the present, or, a brand new year 😉 to try something new! Have you been eager to switch up your skincare routine going into the new year? If yes, I’m here to answer all your questions about our skincare line. 

First and foremost, let’s chat about one of the most commonly asked questions. “What is the proper order of my skincare?” We always say the rule of thumb is to go from thinnest consistency to thickest. After your face is washed you’d then use a toner or an essence if you use one, then serum -> moisturizer -> oil. If you are using a retinol you’d want to sandwich it between serum & moisturizer to prevent dryness. 

Let’s get into our skincare goodies shall we? 

Poetry in Potion Hyaluronic Serum

Poetry in Potion Face Serum

What is it?

Poetry in Potion is a face serum that can be used AM & PM. Packed with hyaluronic acid to lock moisture into the deepest layers of the skin resulting in more hydrated skin. It also contains 24k gold (yes, we said gold). While the gold looks stunning in the bottle it’s also what we like to call a “smart ingredient”. The gold is naturally antibacterial and anti-inflammatory resulting in healthier looking skin for those that suffer from redness or inflammation issues. 

What concerns does it tackle?

Enhanced luminosity, dryness, dehydration, uneven texture, fine lines, wrinkles, redness and reactivity. 75% of users said the products helped with at least one of their key skincare concerns.

Best eye serum | Canada

Illuminée Eye Serum

What is it?

Illuminée is first and foremost, an eye serum and not an eye cream! We have found over the years working with different eye creams both personally and professionally that they are simply too thick. After lengthy research we came to realize that using too thick of an eye cream is the result of milia (those little white bumps that appear around the eyes). This is because the skin under our eyes is much thinner than the rest of the skin on our face and when an eye cream is too thick the skin isn’t able to properly absorb it resulting in excess product sitting on the skin turning into milia. Knowing that serums come across as being less hydrating than a traditional cream we ensured Illuminée was packed with moisturizing ingredients such as squalane, one of nature’s best skin quenching ingredients. Accompanied by a blend of 5 fatty peptides, century old ingredient Poria Cocos extract and a blend of 3 active ingredients. Along with the help of the cooling gold tip metal applicator it really is the perfect cocktail to awaken tired eyes. 

What concerns does this tackle?

Illuminée will help soothe, de-puff, hydrate and brighten the under eye area. 

Call out ingredients: 

  • Poria Cocos Extract – this centuries-old extract derived from Fu-Ling mushrooms provides immediate anti-inflammatory benefits to calm irritated eyes. Rich in antioxidants, it works to fight fine lines and wrinkles and defend against future skin aging.
  • Firming Peptide Blend – firm, smooth and de-puff the eye area with these key age defenders:
  • Dipeptide-2: increases circulation to brighten and reduce puffiness while its small size easily absorbs into the skin to work where you need it most.
  • Acetyl Tetrapeptide-5:  Smoothes and firms the skin by actively controlling one of the main triggers of skin aging that results in collagen destruction.   
  • Squalane – plant-derived, Squalane is nature’s skin quencher. It immediately hydrates the skin and locks in moisture for a long-lasting result – combating dryness and dehydration around the eyes. 

Under eye masks

What concerns does this tackle?

Our Stardust Gel under eye masks combat dark circles, puffiness, fine lines & dryness. 

Call out ingredients:

  • Glycerin – a simple, smart and natural moisturizer that’s also in our skin. Glycerin keeps the skin lipids between our skin cells in a healthy (liquid crystal) state, protects against irritation and helps to restore the skin barrier. 
  • Allantoin – found naturally in the roots and leaves of the comfrey plant, Allantoin soothes and softens the skin to protect it and promote healing. 
  • Hydrogenated Castor Oil –  Castor Oil can help maintain moisture in the skin, making it a useful treatment for dry skin. Castor oil also has humectant properties, which means that it can draw moisture from the air into the skin, keeping the skin hydrated. 

Anyways, I hope this answers some of the questions you may have had and encourages you to bring the “New year, New you” notion into 2024!
