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.
