I have been obsessed with skin care since I had my first facial 15 years ago here in Charlotte. Needless to say, too much sun and this and that has caused a bit of aging. The winter season always makes me dry and wreaks havoc on my skin. With two kiddos and a single income, facials and microdermabrasion no longer fit into the budget. (Unless, it is a special occasion and that is a rarity :)). So, I am always on the hunt for affordable skin care and of course, natural/organic products.
I find I am always reading labels and driving all over town to find items that I have read or heard about. Well, today I feel like I hit the jackpot!! I just read about Vert, a eco chic beauty boutique in Venice,
California. The owner Renata Helfman, is a former make up artist and in 2005 decided to go all natural. She felt like she was driving all over town as well and decided to set up shop herself.
I can’t tell you how excited I am that she has the best products and you can order online. She lists the eco fabulous products that she has hand selected as her favorites for each season. Yahooooooo!! She has my favorite Jurlique and many more I have wanted to try out. The other brand I used a lot in the past was Epicuren. I was surprised to see that they now have a baby line. It is definitely more expensive than your drugstore brands but I find that it usually lasts quite some time.
You will find candles, hair products, make up, skin care, baby care and linens, and even goodies for your canine friends. She carries Jane Iredale, Tracie Martyn and Pratima to name a few more. This is going to save a lot of time and driving for me since she has done all the work for us! Please comment on any natural skin care tips you would like to share.
