Aurora is versatile and easy to use. Apply to dry skin to remove every trace of makeup and daily grime, then remove with a damp cloth. Once makeup is removed, you can emulsify a chickpea sized amount of balm with water to create a milky, creamy skin cleanser. As it contains only skin-beneficial ingredients, and can be left on skin as a moisturizer or as a mask. Try on hands, elbows, fly-away hair, cuticles and more. Good for both mature or acne-prone skin.
Aurora replenishes skin with antioxidant-rich oils and butters, such as linoleic acid-rich pumpkin seed, regenerative sea buckthorn and deeply nourishing organic Cacao, kokum and mango seed butters (and more!).
* If you have known sensitivities to citrus oils or any of the ingredients listed, this product may not be suitable for you.
There's no wrong way to use Aurora!
1. Use a chickpea sized amount, and warm between fingers. Massage into dry or wet skin and let the nutritious oils and butters be soaked up before gently wiping away with a warm, wet cloth. Work gentle into eyelashes to remove even waterproof mascara (can be used by those of us with sensitive eyes!). You will notice a milky emulsion occurs and can be rinsed away clean. You may splash with water if you like, for an extra-clean feel.
2. Again, using a chickpea-sized amount in the palm of your hand, slowly add a few drops of warm water, serum or mist and emulsify, creating a cleansing OR hydrating lotion that you can leave on clean skin, or rinse off as a second cleanse.
3. Next, it can be used as a beauty balm moisturizer for face, body, lips and hair! Use on dry elbows, parched lips or fly-away hair or as a great after-shave balm! A perfect skin prep under your daily SPF!
4. Plop a scant teaspoon sized blob in a bowl, add honey, clay, a serum or mist and mix to create a custom mask.
5. Mix with mineral makeup for a custom foundation or highlighter, you crafty alchemist you! Use to blot out lipstick, or make a powder blush into a cream!
