Winter Routine 2017 – Green Beauty

The year 2016 made me discover care but especially natural brands that allowed me to spend a “comfortable” winter with skin nourished in depth.
I discovered MAHALO care at the end of 2016 and it was the best revelation. These treatments are of an extraordinary quality but above all a sensory pleasure that I do not find anywhere else. They may seem overpriced but having skin suggests imperfections, I can not settle for average quality.

Let’s go back to the Rare Indigo … This balm with a violet color and a fragrance of vanilla mixed with flowery notes is recommended for normal to oily skin. It brings the right amount of hydration without ever leaving a greasy veil on the skin. It even tends to matify it quickly and to attenuate my wrinkles of expressions. When I have some imperfections, I apply a grain of this balm locally to stop the push of the button or to accelerate his healing. I fell in love with this balm and even if the price is very high, each use, the size of a grain of rice enough to cover the whole of my face. So I think I can easily make money.
On weeknights, I start by removing make-up with the balm The Unveil still from MAHALO. This time, this green-colored balm turns into cleansing milk in contact with the skin. In a few massages, it removes all the make-up and removes all impurities accumulated during the day. It is composed of natural enzymes of fruits that allow to exfoliate the skin and make it soft. After rinsing this care, my face is fresh and my skin sharp.
To nourish my skin and rest it all night, I use the best-selling MAHALO, the Mahalo Baume. It was the precursor of my entry in natural care of luxury and especially it is the first moisturizing balm that does not cause me pimples! Its yellow-orange color obtained by the turmeric makes me a little bald complexion that is not unpleasant. I am amazed to see stunned by its regenerating and nourishing actions that are really beneficial to my skin. After being attacked throughout the day, she enjoys eating a dose of natural.

MAHALO SKINCARE Haul // Organic Natural Skincare

About two months ago Mahalo Skincare released their Taste Of Desires box.  A box full of deluxe/travel size Mahalo Skincare products. I knew this was a box I wanted to get my hands on. And I’m glad I did!  Mahalo Skincare is a botanical based skincare line. Their products are organic, hydrating, healing, high quality, high performance, luxurious skin treatments. A little goes a long way with their products so the price of them is so worth it!

Brand Review: Mahalo Skin Care

For 4 months now, I’ve been using Mahalo Skin Care products in my multi-step skincare routine. Mahalo Skin Care touts itself as a Hawaiian botanical-based facial care line that offers high-performance, luxurious skin treatments targeting various forms of skin inflammation, environmental damage, and prematurely aging concerns. The products are nutrient-dense with the key purpose of offering support to draw out one’s healthy, radiant complexion. Mahalo’s formulae draw roots from ancient Polynesia, Western, and Eastern healing, and with current natural beauty technology, proffer an immersive and holistic experience to one’s self-care regimen.
In terms of a high-powered skincare line that’s also organic and eco-friendly, Mahalo is the best in my book. I’ve tried other skincare brands in the same tier — think May Lindstrom and Kypris — and Mahalo blows them out of the water. I know that those are good skincare brands with their own cult followings, and skincare is, ultimately, relative to the individual, yet I will advocate Mahalo again and again for how it has helped me achieve better skin than ever. Here are the four products from its line I cannot do without:

MAHALO Review

Mahalo was the brand on my radar and I always wanted to try it and see what the buzz is all about, everyone in the green beauty community seems to love it and l am yet to come across a bad review. The thing is I am living La Vida Broka life right now, so I thought these products were forever out of my price range, but I am changing my way of thinking – I would much rather invest into something I know will be working for me, rather than buying and testing ten different budget options.  The products are amazing and I think they are worth every single penny. I don’t say this lightly, products have to go the extra mile to impress me, so hear me out!

Mahalo Rare Indigo: the Hawaiian Mahalo products are packed in bamboo jars that stole my heart at first glance, but wait, there´s more. Just take a whiff of any of their products and you´re a goner. Rare Indigo is by far the most interesting beauty balm of the year with it´s mystically aromatic scent and it´s deep violet color. The balm´s texture is of murumuru and babassu butters, you get to take a trip to the Amazon while applying the wonders of the rain forrest on your skin all the while amazing at the unbelievable softness and smoothness the balm gives to your skin.
Mahalo The Petal Mask: The rose red mask smells just as divine as it looks. The lovely jelly consistency is due to raw Hawaiian and Manuka honey ja the rose color comes from roses and hibiscus. Who knew hibiscus is called natures own botox? No wonder the skin looks thoroughly smoothened and relaxed after a thirty minute rose mask.

Hawaiian Treat! Mahalo Skincare Review (translated from French)

It is a real treat when luxury and pure, healthy goodness combine to make a wonderful care line like Mahalo Skincare. I had the wonderful opportunity to test their staples with their newly launched beauty balm that just became available in mid November! For those of you do not know Mahalo, this hand-crafted, cruelly line uses the power of nature gifts using harvested local and wild ingredients that are carefully blended together to create a skin care experience Really decadent. It should go without saying their entire line is free of synthetics, parabens, phthalates, fillers or colorants. It sounds like a dream of being the owners Maryna and Mark, who just started the line in December 2014, the beautiful island of Kauai, and it makes me happy to share my experience with you guys!

As someone with prone to acne, the sensitive skin of pregnancy, my complexion has been a bit under fire lately. During my recent honeymoon during a visit to the spa reminded me how important it was to treat pregnancy skin with a delicate hand and how much natural anti-inflammatories could soothe and heal. I stuck it to gentle products throughout my pregnancy but never took the plunge to go full face with an oil serum or baume balm oil. I can now say that I am not afraid to put the right oils, all over the whole of my face knowing that they help to calm my skin.

Overall, I am pleasantly surprised by the results I get using Mahalo Skincare. I was waiting since their line seemed so wonderful even before I tried it, but the proof is in the puddin ‘. Zits calmer and less redness on my pregnant cup me a happy woman made. To learn more about this fabulous line you should visit their website to get all the details but stay connected with them on two Facebook, Instagram or Twitter updates!

Obsessed with Indigo

Over the course of a month I’ve used Mahalo Skin Care The Rare Indigo beauty balm on parts of my face and body that are hyper-sensitive, or inflamed from eczema; even when some of my prescription medication couldn’t come through (read: that dreaded eczema patch on my left wrist that refuses to go away!) the Rare Indigo did for me. Crafted with 29 high-performance integrity ingredients, such as collagen-fostering vitamin C ester, antioxidants, essential fatty-acids, rare Indigo extract and chamazulene-rich actives, this nourishing supercharged beauty balm makes balancing my skin a treat every day. The blend of Indigo, therapeutic oils and murumuru butter, which contains high amounts of beneficial oleic acid (found in olive oil), emits a rather indulgent, spicy, vanilla-floral scent. I like taking ⅓ of a pea-sized bit and dabbing it under my eyes as an eye balm as well — it helps to soothe puffiness and keep dark eye circles at bay!

Review: Mahalo rare indigo Balm

I’ve had so many requests to chat more about the Mahalo Skincare Rare Indigo Balm, so I thought I’d dish out the inside scoop on this little enchantress which just so happens to be one of my favourite skin saviours right now. There was a line once in the best movie of all time – Under The Tuscan Sun – where Diane Lane is writing a postcard and describes grapes in the market as ‘smelling of purple’. When I first took a sniff of this magical potion, that’s the exact phrase that came to mind: it smells like purple! And what does purple exactly smell like? A luxurious blend of aromatherapy oils that’s crisp yet sweet, with floral undercurrents of rose, ylang ylang, chamomile and iris.
THE VERDICT Winner, winner, chicken dinner. This ticks all the boxes for me because it’s multi-purpose, and such a delicious part of my daily skin prep routine. From the healing, anti-inflammatory properties to the enchanting look, feel and intoxicating therapeutic aroma, I’m a convert. The best part is that there’s enough to last you months and months, so the investment value makes it totally worth it. It’s a must-try for organic loving beauty buffs, Divine Goddesses or anyone looking to cure serious skin irritations with the healing powers of Hawaiian Rare Indigo.

Paratiisi Puupurnukoissa – A Finnish Review

I have been waiting for so long to have those wooden puddings in my hands and – aaaaaah – in the late summer I was finally rewarded… The timing could not have been more suitable, even in the days of the fall, something like this. Hawaii’s sand, sun and tropical rain blossom with fragrant winds. Can we take a moment to talk about the unimaginably beautiful wooden packaging ?! Handmade carvings finish luxury. Mahalo’s products have a quite different feeling than all my other natural cosmetics. Some kind of casual honesty comes through everything from the scent of products to their uncompromising compositions and what they are used for. I got the whole set and tried to tell the word about my own favorites.
If you only try one, I definitely recommend the Rare Indigo Beauty Balm. I have used it in the evenings, in the morning the skin looks rested and glowing. The effect is noticeable in just a couple of days. It also corrects skin damage and soothes acne inflammations. Vacation Glow, what a wonderful name! This body and hair elixir is the most luxurious and golden oil I have ever come across. Mahalo Balm is love in a bottle that can be used as a moisturizing cream after adding serum or a beauty mix- or in ten other ways. Like, for example, a night eye lotion that eliminates swelling and fades odors, or like me, a lip balm addict: lip gloss that treats and nourishes for a long time. From the masks my favorite so far is the Petal Mask. Rose and jasmine fragrant honey gel mask brightens, suppresses and soothes the skin. Last but not least, is the oil serum Vitality Elixir. It is packed with an abundance of earth’s most powerful raw ingredients and makes miracles visible on the skin, it’s a must to admit that I love it the most as it looks like the Vacation Glow.

REVIEW: BEAUTY HEROES MAY 2016 FEATURING MAHALO SKIN CARE

When you open up the jar it smells like a blend of ylang yang, lavender, vanilla and iris. The smell is quite unique and very strong in my opinion. I don’t think it’s a scent that everyone will fall in love with.

The balm is rich and dense, you don’t need to use much at all. After washing my face and applying toner, I scoop out 1/2 a pea size and evenly disperse onto my finger tips. Then, I take the balm and gently pat it into my skin and neck. It doesn’t seem like this would be enough, but this is plenty. Overall the balm is great and I would repurchase. I love how it makes your skin silky and smooth and the ingredients are top notch. With regular use the balm could easily last 6 months.
Final Thoughts:

Beauty Heroes knocks this one box out of the ball park. The box is such a great value for what it is and I am continually impressed. As for the indigo balm and petal mask I think they worked very well. The only thing is the scent could be bit strong and I would suggest getting a sample or smelling the product before purchasing.

BATTLE OF THE BEAUTY BALMS

It seems like beauty balms are all the rage these days and with good reason. They’ve become an integral “last step” in my routine, and they are slowly but surely replacing the more traditional cold creams / moisturizers I’ve been accustomed to.

I’ve been testing out three of what I perceive to be some of, it not the most, popular balms on the green beauty market: The Blue Cocoon by May Lindstrom, The Rare Indigo by Mahalo, and Bless Beauty Balm by Leahlani Skincare.

All three have a similar function – to nourish the skin with a potent cocktail of natural antioxidants and vitamins, resulting in renewed, hydrated, and more youthful skin. They are particularly useful for reliving irritated or rebellious skin. I love them all for various reasons despite their similarities. Read below for an overview of my experience with each, and to find out which of the three I would repurchase!

… when I repurchase, I would have to go with…The Rare Indigo by Mahalo.

Simply put, the scent of The Rare Indigo makes me weak at the knees and it’s the one that makes my skin look the most radiant. I find it noticeably reduces the signs of aging including plumping fine lines and softening pigmentation. I know the Rare Indigo has me covered on all fronts.

 

All About That Glow

MAY’S BEAUTY HERO BY MAHALO SKINCARE

This month’s Beauty Heroes box comes to us from Mahalo Skincare, all the way from the “Garden Island” of Hawaii, Kaua’i. Mahalo (meaning gratitude, respect, praise) Skincare is lovingly and painstakingly made by husband-wife team, Maryna and Mark Kacht. (I met them at IBE, and they could not be more lovely). The couple set out to develop a skincare line that works on every level – energetic, physical and spiritual. Each product is a synergy thoughtfully sourced, integrity ingredients, hand-crafted in small batches to delivery efficacy and a luxurious experience of botanical skincare.
This month’s hero product is the much talked about Mahalo Skincare Rare Indigo Balm. When this product launched late last year, bloggers couldn’t stop discussing it. This balm is so unique; it’s unlike anything I’ve ever tried. I’d never heard of anyone using Indigo in skincare before, and it lends a beautiful color to the formula, so I was really intrigued and wanted to learn more. Organic hemp, murumuru, babassu, grape seed and kukui oils replenish the skin with essential fatty acids, while helichrysum, chamomile, acai, and chamazulene-rich yarrow build a potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant profile to renew skin at the cellular level. Rose, Vitamin C, coQ10, iris, carrot seed, and bergamot deliver a youth-enhancing and restorative boost to repair stressed skin. The result is calmed, soothed, deeply hydrated skin. The scent seems strong at first, ( a blend of vanilla, iris, ylang ylang, frankincense and lavender) but a little balm goes a long way, and its fragrance becomes more subtle once on the skin.
This month’s Sidekick is The Petal by Mahalo Skincare. The Petal is a rich and decadent pre-mixed, pudding-like face mask that brings out the skin’s natural glow and vitality. The base of enzyme-rich honey, naturally exfoliates and draws in moisture while rose clay and cacao soften and gently detoxify. Floral essences of rose, hibiscus, chamomile, jasmine, ylang ylang and rose geranium are perfectly arranged to create the ultimate beautifying skin treatment, gentle enough to apply pre-event or several times a week. Again, the scent seems strong at first, but it is meant to provide a dose of aromatherapy while you wear it.

Bare Beauty

Currently Using: Mahalo Skin Care

There are plenty of compelling natural beauty products out there, ones that are both effective and a joy to use. But few are actually legit works of art, which is what I encountered when I tried Rare Indigo Beauty Balm from Mahalo Skin Care in the May 2016 Beauty Heroes box.

Come to think of it, finding product masterpieces that you’ll want to buy again and again and tell your best friends about is one major aspect of the Beauty Heroes mission. But in the few months that I’ve been a Beauty Heroes Ambassador, I’ve had quite a few deliveries that left me shocked (and, um, super-psyched) about the quality of the products this subscription service delivers. I think Jeannie Jarnot, the founder of Beauty Heroes, gets a real thrill out of knowing that her subscribers are jumping with joy at the mailbox on a regular basis!

But back to Rare Indigo. This buttery balm indulges your visual senses as much as your olfactory and tactile senses. It’s the loveliest shade of soft, could-this-actually-be-natural purple, for crying out loud. It feels nothing short of restorative and youth-giving when I melt it between my fingers, inhale its heady natural fragrance (a mix of vanilla, iris, ylang-ylang, frankincense, and lavender), and press it into my skin each evening. I may have had a had a tough day juggling clients and writing in my office, and my toddler most likely wiped his nose and spilled smoothie on me several times, but at that moment I’m the queen of Kauai (the Hawaiian home of Mahalo Skin Care and its founder Maryna Kracht). I love its strong anti-inflammatory and deeply moisturizing properties, a product of ingredients including helichrysum, chamomile, and yarrow to soothe, rose, carrot seed, and CoQ10 to heal, and organic hemp and kukui oils to moisturize. Again, a work of art! And if you have seen the paradise that is Kauai (incidentally, it’s where my husband and I honeymooned 5 years ago!), then you can begin to understand where at least some of Rare Indigo’s natural beauty and allure originates. Thank you Beauty Heroes and Mahalo Skin Care for many beautiful moments this month!

rare-slgsThe Rare Indigo balm

It’s my second jar of Indigo balm, so I’ve had enough time to properly use it and see the results on my face. If I had to pick a favorite product from Mahalo, it would be the Rare Indigo beauty balm, because it blew me away. When it comes to balms in general, a bunch of them comprise beeswax and shea butter which have a tendency to feel clogging on my skin if I use them for an extended period of time. To avoid any trouble, I mainly use balms during colder months, but I don’t have this issue with Rare Indigo, because its formula is quite unique, containing for example Murumuru butter and Babassu,  which are both from the region of Amazon. Murumuru is emollient, high in essential fatty acids, and contributes in restoring elasticity. It’s often used to heal psiorasis, exczema and dry skin. Babassu is has soothing properties and used to treat inflammations. Another plus is that is said to be non-comedogenic, which I something I do believe since I did not experience any breakouts by using the product….In terms of skin benefits, it has been particularly efficient in calming inflammations and lower oxidation damage in stressed tissues. Environmental pollution, stress, fatigue, all these elements can affect the skin. I often feel my skin congested and tense, and to avoid resorting to Frownies prematurely, I’ve been turning to Mahalo’s Rare Indigo for help. Every-time I apply it on my face, I feel like the tension melts away. My face feels supple, soft, refreshed and looks glowing. I’ve been using it morning and evening. Little funny story: before going to the dermatologist, I put some Indigo Rare on my dad’s face because his face was quite dry and he looked a bit tired. During the doctor’s appointment, she complimented him on his glowing skin! It works like a charm I tell you.

Another win for me was the scent. This is obviously a matter of personal taste, some will love it, others won’t, but I’m very receptive to the aromatherapeutic benefits of its floral scent: inhaling the exquisite aroma it calms me down instantly. Rare Indigo feels very nurturing and comforting at the same time, it’s the perfect companion for stressed and problematic skin like mine. Why is it called Rare? Because it’s manufactured in small batches and the process is handmade.

Mahalo – Hawaiian Magic

You know the feeling when you’ve thought about somebody or something for a while? Thought about getting in contact and how they´re doing. And after a while your paths cross. The person you’ve been thinking about suddenly calls you or walks to you on the street. Nowadays these encounters don’t surprise me any more but every time they make me happy. This is what happened when I got an email from the other side of the world a couple of months ago.

Maryna, the founder of a Hawaiian natural cosmetics brand Mahalo Care contacted me and wanted to send me some of their products for me to try out. For at least six months I had been thinking of ordering these intriguing products packaged in beautiful wooden jars with raw ingredients that make my heart race. You can imagine how happy I was to receive this email from Maryna. She told me that I had been on her mind for a good while as well. I found out that she has relatives in Finland and has visited our country a couple of times and knows even a couple of words in Finnish. Maryna feels particularly fond of Finland and has been dreaming of having her products in the Finnish market. After exchanging a couple of messages with her I felt this familiar flutter and warmth in my belly as I had felt a couple of years ago with May Lindstrom. There’s something magical about these products, and no wonder, after all they are from Hawaii.

A bit over a month ago the post man stood at my door and handed me a package full of Mahalo loveliness and while opening the beautiful wrappings my heart was racing like on the first spring day. I have been waiting to thoroughly test these products in Bali and finally I’m ready to introduce this magical brand to you.

rare-indigo-reviewThe Rare Indigo beauty balm

Ah, Rare Indigo Beauty Balm, you lovely thing, you…While there’s nothing wrong with products that get the job done, there is something so much more special about products that impart a sense of ritual and experience in addition to the benefits for the skin.  Rare Indigo is one of the special ones.  The experience begins with the unusual and tactile bamboo packaging, featuring an etched image of the Hawaiian Islands.  Oooh, it whispers, what’s inside?

And then the smell.  How do I describe the smell?  Floral, for sure, a lush tropical floral with warm vanilla.  But there are camphorous notes that mix the whole thing up, and make it one of the most singular and complicated scents I’ve encountered in a face product. I find myself opening the jar during the day just for a sniff!…

A ritual is wonderful, but only if you also get results.  What’s impressed me most is how long it keeps my skin feeling moisturized.  Between whipping cold winds, and dry heating systems, Northeastern winters are experts at stealing every drop of moisture from my skin. I tend toward dry anyway, and often feel parched by mid-day in the winter months.  But with Rare Indigo my skin feels soft and plump all day.  It’s 7pm as I write this, and I’m only just now beginning to notice signs of dryness. I’m also noticing it to be a good base for makeup.  Some balms have makeup falling off my skin almost immediately, but Rare Indigo has a slight stickiness to it, keeping makeup on and on and on.And of course, it gives you what everyone is looking for: GLOW!  Real, serious glow. With school in session, I have to be out of the house, with a four year old fully dressed, lunch packed, teeth brushed, etc by 7:30, and the are many, many mornings when spending time to put on makeup is completely out of the question.  But Rare Indigo makes my skin look so fresh and awake that I have no problem heading out completely bare-faced.

The Green Reverie

rare-indigo-balmThe Rare Indigo balm review and ritual

Indigo helps to bring intuition, insights, wisdom, and mental clarity. When the brow chakra is not functioning properly it can manifest as migraines, losing your sense of direction, depression, and many other symptoms. This is all about letting go of the ego, stepping aside, and allowing information and insights to flow in. So what does this have to do with a beauty balm? Everything friends, everything. So hang with me for a second, because the Mahalo Rare Indigo Balm is much more than a simple skin care product.

Color therapy is something I use daily in my Reiki, personal space, and energy healing sessions on others…Adding color therapy into your daily routine will have many benefits, and there is no better time to do this than first thing in the morning and right before bed! It is to be noted that some say indigo should always be balanced with orange. The Mahalo packaging is spot on (possibly unintentionally) by using bamboo and glass. Lending a beautiful (almost orange) wood aesthetic to the experience, not to mention very eco-friendly.

…This balm has completely renewed my skin during the cold, and bitter winter months. …This balm has not caused any breakouts, if anything it has actually kept my skin looking totally pristine and balanced. This is one balm I reach for constantly. Any time, any place, I love applying this balm all over my face in the morning, before bed, and when my skin simply needs a little extra love during the day.

It’s beautiful and no other description is needed. This balm is pure luxury. The combination of exquisite (and beneficial) oils, the silky texture, and the stunning color all add to the ultimate sensory experience. Ylang Ylang is an antidepressant, aphrodisiac, and helps with eczema. Frankincense (one of my favorite healers) heals scarring, is an antiseptic (boosts immune system too), helps induce peace, and is amazing for anti-aging. Bergamot FCF is AMAZING for the treatment of anxiety and healing grief. Lavender… It fights bacteria, heals the skin, calms the nerves, and helps you sleep like a baby. Rose Otto raises vibrations, calms stress, is known as “The Queen of Flowers”, hydrates skin, strengthens the heart, and provides the ultimate, indulgent skin treat. The combination of these oils, plus the other oils included will heal you from the inside out.

I am not one to take my self-care lightly. It is a time to truly honor your divine feminine spirit, to open the heart, and to freely love yourself. We all deserve to be loved, and loving ourselves is most important. When we focus too often on taking care of others, we create emotional blockages, leaving ourself feeling unloved and neglected. Taking five to ten minutes of your morning and night to ritualize your skin care routine will do more for you in the long run, and benefit your mind, soul, and body. Create a playlist for this time, light a candle, or inhale aromatherapy before beginning to honor this sacred time for yourself. It doesn’t take much time, and even with kids, or a busy house you can play calming music to create a moment of serenity.

I usually start my morning by oil pulling, taking care of my oral health, starting my lemon water and tea, and then I apply my cleansing balm of choice. Allowing this to penetrate for a moment helps me to honor the time I am giving myself. After cleansing I take a small amount of the balm and I gently smooth between my clean hands, focusing on the color indigo. I gently pat the balm all over my face, neck, and décolleté, while offering compliments to myself. I close my eyes for a moment and picture a beam of indigo light surrounding my brow chakra. Some may want to preserve as much of the balm as they can, so obviously use only on the face if you wish. I take three giant inhales of the scent between my hands, and I meditate for a moment on peace. If you have time in either the morning or night, journaling after or writing down what you are grateful for is a perfect way to end your five minutes of self-love. Sip some tea and take a moment to appreciate the present. At night you can easily make an herbal tea, apply a mask (Pele is a good option), hop in the bath, and apply the balm after. Curl up with your journal or a good book and grant yourself permission to relax and be open to receiving all of the blessings that are waiting for you.

p1010779The Rare Indigo balm

Rare Indigo balm the tiniest bit goes a long way. The texture and consistency is the one factor that baffles me the most and leaves with a loss of words. Here’s why:
Texture – solid balm (especially during cooler months) but it almost feels like ‘gel oil balm’….Once spread on skin, it possesses the texture of an oil. No greasy feel on skin, instantly absorbs, the aroma lingers on the skin for a bit (so I keep sniffing myself).

So you ask when can this product be used? Well anytime, but especially delightful in a Spa routine after an intense peel or microderm, OR long haul flights…OR Wine tasting trips, OR Desert safari (seriously!) OR sitting in a Heated environment all day!

The situations I have described are quite dramatic but, this balm is incredible for hydrating and plumping my skin. From a Raisin to a Grape. Plus it has helped me soothe irritation and slight inflammation. It’s just a fabulous treat, I find myself walking past my skincare drawer and I open this jar only to inhale the heavenly aroma. As with any balm the versatility is excellent. Ideally used on face, but like any other balm I perceive it to be multi purpose and multi tasking. Cuticles, hands, lips, under eyes. Personally I’ll stick with my face.

HOW does it compare to its sibling aka Mahalo Balm?
Just like siblings – they’re related and nurtured by same mother, although they have they have different qualities, ingredients, colour and personality.

Green Beauty Gift Guide With Mini-Reviews – The Rare Indigo

Mahalo Skin Care The Rare Indigo: Just got it, and I’m already super impressed. It smells amazing! The top note is floral but it’s got the deeper notes I crave, in the form of frankincense and carrot seed oils. Hemp and grape seed oils are perfect for acne and general soothing, and the actives include all manner of planty goodness, along with Vitamin C and coenzyme Q10, to keep skin looking youthful. The star ingredient is indigo plant extract, which gives the lovely blue color as well as skin-renewing power. It’s working well for my sensitive skin, and gives some serious glow, no mica required. I’m testing both spot and full-face application, but I don’t think you can go wrong with this.
