The products are rolling in. The displays are filling up. The Well Curated Cabinet will soon be overflowing with my favorite products. And let me say that I am very picky about my retail and backbar products. Shopping for skincare and makeup can be so overwhelming with all of the luscious smelling, perfectly packaged new items appearing daily on various social media blogs. Let me help you find the good stuff.
I’m in love with a lotion stick by Asheville, NC-based Mountains to Sea Skincare. Awesomeness in a push-up style container! It’s a solid balm that travels well, and with a little push on the underside it will melt right over your knees, elbows, and probably anywhere you’d like a little sweet smelling skin conditioning.
A bit about the active ingredients:
Calendula has been used for centuries as a food supplement for its internal calming properties, as well as a skin soother. Natural acne products often include Calendula for the cooling, soothing, and antibacterial benefits. You might know this flower from its beautiful golden petals, which contain beta carotene and many other beneficial antioxidants.
Lemon balm is a member of the mint family. It is grown widely throughout the world for its anti-inflammatory properties as both a food supplement and skin preparation.
Beeswax, olive and coconut oils make up the rich base for this thick, protective skin balm. Bonus: the calendula flowers are grown in NC! #keepitlocal #nc
Also in Monarch’s Well Curated Cabinet, you’ll find Mountains to Sea Rosemary + Vetiver body lotion and the invigorating Peppermint + Myrtle body salt scrub. Y’all are going to feel so soft!
