A golden shape-shifter. A nimble traveller. An aromatic companion, with rich blood orange and spicy, earthy notes. The luxe 2018 update will not disappoint with it's improved rinse-ability and extremely soft, bouncy after-feel . From solid to liquid, clear to opaque, cleansing, moisturizing, uplifting and relaxing; an ultra-versatile cleansing & makeup-removing balm is now an even more luxurious leave-on product... without the hefty price tag!
A balm inspired by the simple pleasures that anchor your day. A quiet moment in the early morning, golden light beginning to pour in through the window. Speckles of sparkling dust caught in the sunshine, drifting silently as you sip your coffee and nibble breakfast. The room is quiet, still, before the world wakes up.
This highly nutritious, water-less balm has the unique concept of being both cleanser and moisturizer, making life simple and beautiful (oh, you didn't know all you needed was this balm? Yep!). This delicious, transforming balm melts away daily grime and dirt by disappearing into a cleansing oil on contact with skin, then rinsing away with a milky texture once water is massaged onto skin, replenishing your skin with healthy, antioxidant-rich plant-derived 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!). Next, the balm can be used as a moisturizer, alone or with a Stark oil.
Create a thick mask for an overnight hydration treatment, apply to dry body parts, tame flyaway hair, soften cuticles, use as a lip balm or simply gaze at the balm lovingly... AURORA does it all! Blood orange, turmeric, pettitgrain and palo santo are the star essential oils, regenerating cells and deeply cleansing skin from impurities.
Who is it for?:
* Those with very sensitive skin may find this balm a little irritating (although most do not). If you have known sensitivities to citrus oils or any of the ingredients listed, this product may not be suitable for you.
There are many ways to use AURORA
1. Use a pea sized amount, and warm between fingers. Massage into dry skin 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 pea-sized amount in the palm of your hand, slowly add a few drops of warm water and emulsify, creating a cleansing OR hydrating lotion!
3. Next, it can be used as a beauty balm moisturizer for face, body, lips and hair! A perfect skin prep under your daily SPF! Mix with mineral makeup for a custom foundation or highlighter, you crafty alchemist you!

Blood orange and petitgrain essential oils are SUN SAFE citrus oils, and not only cleansing and have astringent properties, but are an antioxidant powerhouse, as is turmeric. Wonderful for occasionally problematic skin, also gentle enough for dry, sensitive skin. Has a wonderful, fresh aroma that is uplifting and invigorating, with a slightly earthy undertone from grounding Palo Santo. This balm smells absolutely mouth-watering. Un-processed butters heal, soften and protect skin with a light, natural SPF.
A synergistic mist that purifies and protects the skin from the environment with super-antioxidant ferulic acid and green tea extract, while soothing skin with a double dose of cucumber, purifying with white willow bark and undoing environmental stress with nutritious watermelon extract.
Petrichor is the distinct scent that emanates from the earth after a heavy and much-needed rainfall. It is actually a modern word that means "blood of the stone"... and how does one make a rock bleed? Simply by letting a few tears flow, a long-held outpouring when pregnant clouds finally can no longer bear the weight any longer. Few things offer that sense of renewal and possibility like the scent and the feel of the air after much-needed rain. Dust is rinsed away from sidewalks and buildings, gardens perk up and trees let go of a long-held exhale. It's not just refreshing, it's a promise of renewal.
Calms inflamed skin, protects skin with antioxidants and treats blemishes and promotes healthy looking skin! This POWERFUL mist is not a toner, but a skin tonic, and does not dry out skin (in fact, it's a light humectant and will increase skin's hydration. Rejoice!). This super-juice gently cleanses and exfoliates skin with the salicylic acid found in white willow bark, while aloe and cucumber soothe and cool skin. Ferulic acid, an incredibly potent antioxidant found in nearly every plant seed, boosts the effects of the other antioxidants, like the green tea extract, and the vitamins in the watermelon extract in this formula...and may even work better in the presence of UV! (Be sure to wear SPF anyhow.) Witch Hazel, native to eastern Canada, tones skin, reduces inflammation and irritation and makes pimples vanish. Watermelon extract provides a nutritious burst of vitamins to the skin (with purported UV-repairing properties!). Use after cleansing skin, before moisturizing. Can be washed off or left on. Has an earthy 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.) Apply your favourite facial oil afterwards (which is probably our CY or NL) while skin is still damp for best results. Some sedimentation can occur, shake before use! Some batches are cloudier than others, this is normal. :)

A ultra-gentle, detoxifying and deep-cleansing gel, with both exfoliation and brightening properties, leaving skin feeling very soft. It is a black gel, contains no oils and rinses clean and yet it is moisturizing and hydrating. The scent is somehow both uplifting and refreshing and yet also warming and soothing. Can be used as a simple mask or rinsed very easily! Confusing? Perhaps. You'll have to try it to understand ECLIPSE's magic!
Dust stuck to my sweaty face and neck as we hauled our heavy packs into the second tuktuk of the journey. The sun was beginning to set by now, and I couldn't wait to feel a relief from the searing, stifling heat. The faintest breeze came came off the Indian Ocean, and I closed my eyes and clutched onto both my child and the tiny vehicle's "safety" bar as we hauled ourselves through the traffic of downtown Colombo. I couldn't wait to get in the shower, scrub the stickiness and heat off my body and curl up with my book in our hotel. I also couldn't wait to create the cleanser that would make my skin feel instantly detoxified, refreshed and clean but not at all tight and dry. This cleanser is the traveller's saviour.
A gentle, oil-free gel cleanser that is pH-balanced for optimal skin health (4.4 to 5 depending on batch), and provides a mild, foamy experience. This formula is both nourishing and deeply cleansing, at the same time! It is also exfoliating, thanks to fruit enzymes and white willow bark, and brightening due to licorice root. A lovely paradox, this pitch-black gel...as it reveals the opposite yet complementary functions of a great cleanse.
Activated coconut charcoal detoxifies and cleanses pores at a very deep level, while white willow bark exfoliates and calms inflamed skin. Licorice root brightens and evens the complexion and A lovely, refreshing morning cleanse, but just as effective as an end-of-day-please-just-wash-it-all-away kind of cleanser. Lovely cardamom is both cooling and warm (magic!), and balances all doshas. Please note color may vary from batch to batch, from black to shades of grey.
