Isa's Restoratives: Your own personal beauty apothecary
Isa's Restoratives is a Brooklyn based skin care line who produces smart, herbal beauty elixirs in small batches. I was originally drawn to Isa's brand because of her Liquid Gold facial serum, but then was entranced by the apothecary feel and design and her approach to her products.
Some of the ingredients are sourced from her very own garden, but the majority are harvested locally from known and trusted sources - she even makes trips to a beekeeper for blocks of honey!
Gone are the days of supporting big corporations; more and more people want to know not only know all of the ingredients in their beauty and skin care, but where it is grown and how it is harvested. Support of local businesses making the strides for sustainability is key and Isa's Restoratives meets all the criteria.
When you use her products, you feel like you are treating your skin with rare and ancient medicinals....and your probably are:
A soothing toner featuring the powerhouse in up of clary sage, witch hazel, calendula, lavender, colloidal silver, aloe, wasabi, got kola, licorice, pineapple and white tea! I don't think I've ever seen an ingredient list so bountiful in healing properties! Use after cleansing and before serum or balm.
Many of the ingredients for this one are brought to you from the Brazilian Rainforest (Isa was born in Brazil!) rich in vitamins and minerals that address discoloration, sagging, discoloration, eczema, psoriasis, mild abrasions and dry skin.
There was no better name for this serum, it's packed full of vital nutrients and exotic properties to formulate a truly special serum.
Following your toner of choice, the beauty balm is another glass jar housing an ingredient knock out list like Sea Buckthorn (omega 7 fatty acid), Helichrysum (tissue formation, soothing and calming skin) along with jojoba oil, capuaçu butter, babassu butter, murmur, cranberry seed oil, rosehip seed oil, even marshmallow, bilberry and myrrh, some of my favorites!
This balm truly works to balance and regenerate the skin, the healing properties are undeniable and the moisturizing effect is evident!
Isa also sent me samples of the Matcha Facial Mask, Blue Beauty Balm, Coconut Charcoal Mask and Liquid Clay Cleanser. These are all the type of products I could become obsessed with - all created with a passion of plants and science, the result is magnificent.
Mask-time is a good time!
