Music plays in your ears as you stroll towards your favorite cafe. You must have passed this place a thousand times, but today you look up and notice and old yet tiny Apothecary sign in the glass window of a door. You're compelled to have a look. The shop is up a narrow staircase, and once at the top, your jaw drops at the immaculately organized floor-to-ceiling library of herbal remedies, all bottled in amber and labeled by hand. The apothecarist, standing behind the great oak counter, is straight out of another time and place, but perfectly suited to his shop. He is delicately placing a dried bundle of plants, tied in a jutte string, into a large amber jar. "Salix Alba, white willow bark," he explains. "An anelgesic, like Aspirin, but also the best treatment for acne." He tells you with a wiggle of his moustache. He is wise and playful, and you don't feel offended that he noticed the few blemishes on your forehead. "Mix it with some aloe juice and a little witch hazel." He says. And you know, somehow, that he has prescribed just the thing.
Calms inflamed skin, treats blemishes and promotes healthy looking skin! This POWERFUL perfecting tonic is so much more than a toner! This astringent super-juice gently cleanses and exfoliates skin with the salicylic acid found in white willow bark, while aloe and cucumber soothe and cool skin. Witch Hazel, native to eastern Canada, tones skin, reduces inflammation and irritation and makes pimples vanish. Watermelon extract provides a nutritious burst of antioxidants to the skin. Use after cleansing skin, before moisturizing. Can be washed off or left on. Has a refreshing herbal, slightly citrus scent. Ideal for those living in heavily polluted cities, or for acne-prone skin that over-produces sebum.
Who is it for?:
Spritz on clean, damp skin. One of two sprays is enough! You can let skin absorb in the goodies, or gently blot off with a tissue (or whatever you like.) Can be used with a Konjac sponge! Apply your favourite facial oil afterwards (which is probably our CY or NL) while skin is still damp for best results.
