The Bean Mask is at it’s final stages of release



 .

Worldwide release April 2017

 .

The BEAN mask is an ultra-concentrated epicurean facial treatment that awakens and revives skin and spirit akin to the morning coffee after a long week. The succulent bean marriage of cacao, vanilla and coffee is enveloped in sweet enzymes of raw Hawaiian honey to further entwine with plytonutrient plant botanicals, and precious extracts that are fortified by “secret weapon” antioxidants. This activating formula works to boost skin’s natural defenses, detoxify, brighten, soothe, soften and gently exfoliate congestion.

The BEAN mask presents one of the most potent and luxurious antioxidant synergies that help to recover lipids and skin membranes from free radical damage, resurfacing complexion that is purified, toned and glowing.

Experience: creamy, concentrated dark brown paste with fine, gentle exfoliation grains (from moroccan clay). Ready to use straight from the jar, no additional activation required.

Aroma: decadent, yet robust union of coffee and cacao, sweetened with notes of honey and vanilla, with highlights of exotic cardamom, patchouli, Hawaiian sandalwood, ylang ylang and a fleeting crisp note of bergamot.

The BEAN mask helps to:
transform dull, lackluster, prematurely aging skin into visibly firmer, toner, more youthful-looking complexion with a fresh, purified glow
gently exfoliate dead cells,  pollution, dirt, blood, oils and toxins
boost collagen production to enhance elasticity and radiance
detoxify to reduce visual appearance of pores
support and boost skin’s natural healing and defenses
reverse effects of environmental damage
deliver antioxidant-rich purification
boost circulation and cell renewal for a visibly healthy glow

Your MAHALO Moment, the ritual

Apply a generous dollop of The BEAN mask deliciousness to a damp, nude face and neck avoiding the eye and lip areas, spreading evenly to cover all desired skin surface. If the mask does not glide with ease over skin, scoop the product into a treatment bowl, or palm of your hand and blend with a few drops of water or toner.  Leave on skin for 20-30 minutes*. To remove the mask, rinse and slowly massage the skin with warm water as you enjoy the last step of The BEAN mask treatment, – the gentle exfoliation grains that wash-off the unwanted impurities, dead skin cells and toxins.

While the skin is still wet, follow with The VITALITY ELIXIR facial serum or The RARE INDIGO beauty balm

*for first-time use start with a 2-5 minute treatment. If sensitive skin, leave on for 4-7 minutes.

Skin type: Intended for most skin types* to use up to 3 times per week

 Key Ingredients:

Cacao this antioxidant-rich raw superfood is bursting with vitamins, minerals, raw enzymes and omega fatty acids that help in preventing free radical damage that cause premature aging and inflammation. It promotes circulation, and increase cellular healing resulting in a toned, bright and youthful complexion.

Astaxanthin [asta-ZAN-thin] the powerhouse “secret weapon” ingredient of The BEAN mask. Recent clinical study found this carotenoid to be the strongest antioxidant against singlet oxygen (a reactive oxygen species that directly damages biological lipids, proteins and DNA).  Asaxanthin’s unparalleled ability to fight free radical scavengers is attributed to being 6,000 times stronger than vitamin C, 800 times stronger than CoQ10, 550 times stronger than green tea catechins and 75 times stronger than alpha lipoic acid (from clinical research by Nishida Y./2007). This powerhouse ingredient provides new dimension in skin treatment technology, effectively working to revitalize dull, tired, prematurely-aging and environmentally stressed skin.

Green Coffee Bean Oil + Coffee Co2:  the “secret weapon sidekicks” of the BEAN mask that work in synergy to help tone, firm and rejuvenate the skin. Acclaimed as one of the best free radical scavengers, it’s largely superior in antioxidant activity than that of Vitamin C (chlorogenic acid) and green tea (polyphenols), with enzyme content more potent than CoQ10. It’s prized for it’s age reversing, anti-inflammatory, and ability to reverse cellular damage caused by UV rays and environmental pollution.

Tomato Lycopene this superior antioxidant helps to strengthen skin’s natural ability to defend itself against oxidative stress, to maintain visible tone and glow.

Edelweiss – (meaning “noble”) offers high free radical scavenging activity. This clinically tested active helps to protect from environmental stressors – while nourishing the skin and providing a soothing, calming effect.

Carrot: this antioxidant-rich superseed helps to repair damaged skin tissue, address skin discoloration, improve complexion, tone and add elasticity to skin.

Sandalwood our ethically sourced local Hawaiian sandalwood boasts antiseptic (helps prevent infections), astringent (helps prevent acne), anti-inflammatory and disinfecting properties that support skin’s youthful appearance and function.

Watermelon: this highly concentrated extract is rich in Vitamin C and naturally occurring carbohydrates and amino acids. It supports the UV-stressed immune system of the skin and is used to prevent photo-aging. Watermelon also helps to protect the skin from every day toxins and promotes cell-renewal.

Sea Buckthorn:  the single highest source of vitamin E, amino acids, pro-vitamin-A and unsaturated fatty acids: a true skin superfood. Stimulates collagen, combats wrinkles and dryness, reverses the effects of aging and pollution.

Ceylon Cinnamon the delicacy of highest grade cinnamon has been prized for centuries for it’s skin soothing, anti-aging, anti-inflammatory (manages acne) and antiseptic properties.

Phytosterols: antioxidant and anti-irritation activity of phytosterols aid in boosting skin’s natural defenses and repair, while helping to calm and soothe damaged skin.

Vitamin E – serves as a scavenger for free radicals that are destructive to the cell membrane, whose integrity is paramount to cell metabolism and life.

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.

hellodfWhat I am loving now: MAHALO Skin Care

I am absolutely loving Mahalo Skin Care right now. Everything about it is perfection! And the creator of this brand Maryna, is a fantastic person with the kindest heart. I adore her and her products! Let’s start by checking out the gorgeous balm, featured above. My skin loves this nurturing product called The Rare Indigo. It’s the only cool hued balm you need!

Hand blended from natural ingredients including but not limited – hemp, marula, indigo, rose otto, lavender, and more, the scent is purely intoxicating and the skin softening properties has me addicted to using this all day.

You can use it anywhere, anytime. I use it on my hands and face, applying a little to my temples at bedtime for soothing aromatherapy! The Pele Mask is another winner and many green beauty lovers are addicted to this.  Definitely a favorite in the detox mask category. …

Hello Dollface

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.

Ritual

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.
