About 2 months ago, I did something a little wild and crazy. I changed “GF” – our Grapefruit Cleanse and Hydrate Balm. (Oh, and it’s also available in 2 sizes now! Perhaps for a limited time so get on it!)
Don’t panic! I know for many of you, this is your favorite Stark product. I am confident that it will continue to be your favorite cleanser, and if it wasn’t before? It is now. I don’t even think I’m exaggerating when I say this may now be a revolutionary product on the naturals scene.
So a while back I decided to change our White Willow Bark Perfecting Tonic‘s (aka WB) packaging, to a classic pour-top bottle instead of a spritzer/mister top. Some of you were a little confused as to why, so I thought I would share with everyone my reasons for the change.
Cutting straight to the chase, this is a main reason: WB is not an “aromatic” product. WB is an active tonic that is meant to gently exfoliate skin (yeah, it’s gentle, but still, we’re talking about sloughing dead skin off your face!), and the more I thought of it, the less I liked the idea of the product not being able to be applied in a controlled way.
Now, don’t fret! It’s not that delivering WB in a mister was dangerous or anything. Nobody lost an eye! (Right? RIGHT!? Kidding, I know it’s fine.) But, think of it. If you’ve got combo skin, you would only need WB along the T-zone, or wherever your oily bits are. If you have very sensitive skin, you might only need to press a cotton pad onto a problem area to soothe and coax pesky blemishes away (a tip I got from a pro beauty blogger). You don’t need it all over your face, willy nilly!
Here are the first 38 responses to the question “Which is your FAVE Stark Product, and Why?” from my questionnaire (click on link to weigh in!).
I thought it would be nice to share these anonymous answers with all of you.
When *wallpaper contacted me several weeks back, I was all “No way!” and they were all like “Way!”. Actually, that’s not what it was like at all, but I was a little amazing-media-star-struck. Like Monocle (who also contacted me….the UK loves them some Stark!), *wallpaper is one of those magazines and webzines that just make me go gaga. I love design. I love beautiful things. I love simplicity. I love being inspired.
These magazines so get that.
Lately I’ve just been having this feeling in my gut that change is coming.
Yeah, I guess our move has something to do with it. We’re leaving our beloved apartment in St.Henri, my favorite Montreal district, for a side of town I NEVER thought I would live in. I don’t care much for the new neighborhood (not yet, anyhow) but there’s some really cool perks, such as a MASSIVE park across the street, including Montreal’s Botanical Gardens, and our balcony and my office (I get my OWN office! No sharesies! Yay!) has the funniest view of the…
