I finally made it! I’ve been scrubbing my head lately that I wasn’t able to share my skincare favorites in the past 2 years, so here’s a sum of products I’ve tried and loved, and I see myself buying again!
All the products mentioned are made with all natural ingredients, no dyes, perfumes (only of natural origin) or preservatives.
I personally don’t think you should invest your money in a face scrub, since you can easely can make your own sugar or coffee scrub, but if you really must! go ahead and try EARTH HARBOR CITRINE SEA PURIFYING EXFOLIATION POTION, a triple-action microdermabrasion Exfoliator + Cleanser + Mask that brings warmth, purification, and balance to your skin. Lush Botanical Oils synergistically combine with finely tumbled Sea Salt Crystals, liquified Turmeric, and micronized Citrine Gemstone to smooth skin, calm flare-ups, and deeply cleanse pores.
INSTA NATURAL GLYCOLIC PEEL professional grade but not the price, with Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid, to help remove those pesky sun spots for a brighter and hydrated skin.
and a scrub also, BLUE DAISY ESSENTIALS for Sensitive Skin *organic, can be used daily because it has very nourishing and healing ingredients such as chamomile, calendula and aloe vera, anti-aging and smoothing wrinkles from rice and rosehip powder.
EARTH HARBOR BLUE CRUSH MARINE PERFECTING MASK Perfect when your skin needs some extra TLC, with a Blend of Clays and Coconut Cream that exfoliate dry and dead skin buildup while Blue Green Algae and Indigo provide luxurious skin nutrition. Blue Crush gently removes your top layer of skin to unveil newer, fresher skin while releasing a scrumptious aroma like a slice of Key Lime-Coconut Pie.

Barie Powder is for radiantly smooth, fresh, and glowing skin.
AVEGAN BEAUTY DETOX CLEANSER this cleanser will always remind me of my starting point in my journey transitioning from my favorite cleanser from Clinique, and I’m so happy I found a better version of it, with more powerful ingredients that delivers every time.Anti-aging, reducing redness and calms kin, helps remove any dirt in the pores (makeup) without stripping the skin, Lactic Acid along with organic chamomile and sunflower oil to balance the skin and restore as they cleanse.
BLU FERN HYDRATING CLEANSER is great for people with dry mature skin, normal and/or sensitive, has aloe vera, coconut milk, sea algae, and oat protein to help calm irritation, detoxify, soothe, hydrate, and nourish in order to balance and restore your skin’s natural microbiome.
In the past couple of year I didn’t really put that much attention into my skincare needs, and recently I’ve noticed more visible pores, so using the FACETHEORY CERA-C PORE REDUCING TONER helps with that, but also has ceramides and 5% niacinamide (vitamin B3) to balance oil, promote elasticity, and fight those aging signs.
EARTH HARBOR TIDAL ROSE is an upgrade from the basic rose toner, it’s infuses nutrient-dense Seaweed with high-vibration Rose Quartz Rosewater, antioxidant-rich White Tea Extract, and beautifying Persian Lilac Extract, to locks in moisture, soften skin and restores pH balance while metaphysically balancing energy.
I cannot tell you how important is to incorporate in your skincare routine products packed with SPF, and this EARTH HARBOR ECLIPSE is a lightweight, clean, broad-spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen lotion that helps protect skin against sunburn, skin damage, early aging, and environmental stress. Reef-safe, non-nano, and 100% mineral-based with Zinc Oxide, Macroalgae , and Green Tea Extract to protect skin against UVA and UVB rays, blue light, and pollution damage.
I must say all your money should go into a good serum, and it was hard decision for me to choose, but these stand out:
EARTH HARBOR AURORA Sea Greens + Cannabis Sativa Hemp Oil and pacifying Grapeseed Oil + Neem Seed Extract. Let Aurora’s intoxicating, therapeutic aroma of Magnolia Blossoms transport you into her calming phenomena.

Serum Oils are the perfect combination between a serum and an oil, so kinda great for busy people who don’t have a lot of time in the morning.

If you like an oil better than a cream (it comes with age 😉 then I want to suggest these great oils that are amazing on their own

KATARI BEAUTY ROSEHIP OILIf you look to invest in a single ingredient product, RoseHip seed Oil is the best anti-aging oil I will recommend, and you want the best quality of it, and Katari Beauty has the beautiful Rosehip is 100% pure, cold-pressed Rosehip Oil, from dried petals and fruit of the rose bush grown on small farms in Egypt’s Delta of the Nile. These farms have used sustainable irrigation and growing practices since the time of the Pharaohs.
In my opinion, right now everyone is using their face products all over their neck and chest, so investing in a neck product is not necessary in my opinion, but if you really must, like I did out of curiosity, try 100%PURE RETINOL RESTORATIVE NECK CREAM concentrated with hydrolyzed quinoa promotes elasticity for a firmer, more lifted neck. Retinol reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles, niacinamide brightens and balances tone, and olive squalane and hyaluronic acid lock in hydration for smooth, supple skin.
