Latest Ingredient Obsession: Indigo

Lately I’m loving indigo in my hand and body lotion. Tatcha (the luxury Japanese skincare company inspired by Geisha beauty rituals) makes a trio of products with this unique botanical extract. I’ve tried two of them over the past month (the Soothing Silk Body Butter and the Soothing Silk Hand Cream) and have completely fallen […] Read more…

hey babe, meet frank. coffee scrub review.

Let’s get one thing straight, frank is a major flirt. As soon as I heard about this coffee scrub (which originated in Australia and is now available in the United States) I knew I had to try it because 1) I love the smell of coffee (even though I prefer tea) and 2) I love a good […] Read more…

Review: Miraculous Maracuja Oil

As someone who has combination skin (oily/dry) I was very apprehensive about trying a face oil. Last year Tarte Cosmetics sent me their beautifully bottled pure Maracuja Oil ($46) to be considered for Sweet Violet Bride’s natural beauty guide and so I gave it a try. I feared it would make me break out and hesitantly patted […] Read more…

Review: Amala Hydrating Cream Cleanser & Toner

Amala, in Sanskrit means “most pure.” The quest for the perfect face wash is a journey I’ve been on for a long time. I’ve had sensitive skin my entire life, am prone to breakouts and ironically dry skin at the same time. For many years (before I paid much attention to ingredients) I used soap […] Read more…
