Over the past year, I made it my mission to start replacing my skin care and beauty products with all natural alternatives. I was thrilled when Siobhan, the owner of Organachs Farm to Skin, reached out to introduce me to her shop. Leading the way for green beauty in CT, Organachs offers a carefully curated selection of organic and natural skin care, makeup, bath & body, hair care and lifestyle products. The team at Organachs is passionate about natural beauty, believing that what you put on your body is just as important as what you put in your body. I couldn’t agree more!
My visit to Organachs was fun and informative. I left with an abundance of knowledge in an industry that I’m just beginning to learn about. The most important lesson learned – healthy skin begins with healthy ingredients. There are some alarming statistics concerning the toxins allowed in beauty products in the US (far more than what other countries allow.) Organachs does the hard work of examining each and every ingredient in the products they sell – only offering the best and healthiest options in personal care. You know you’re in good hands when shopping at Organachs!
I had such a fun afternoon of pampering thanks to the lovely ladies at Organachs Farm to Skin. Upon arriving to the shop, I got to chat with Siobhan about the current state of my skin and products I was using. She recommended a personalized facial for my sensitive skin. Siobhan led me to the back of her shop to what she calls the “Beauty Cocoon” – an adorable name for a darling little corner of the store, fitted to perform facial and spa services. It was in this little cocoon that I indulged in all natural facial treatments leaving my skin feeling smooth, calm and radiant. My relaxing facial was followed by an all natural makeup application by makeup artist, Kristi. Kristi introduced me to some amazing brands and worked with me to find the perfect products and colors to compliment my skin tone. She also gave me some great makeup application tips! Siobhan and her team do a wonderful job at creating a relaxed and serene atmosphere to make your skin and beauty services.
I left Organachs with my skin feeling better than had in months….thanks to 100% all natural and organic products (no chemicals necessary!) I also left feeling confident about my skin. I learned that although my skin is sensitive, it’s not as horrible as I thought. A lot of the skin reactions I experience are simply a result of the harsh chemicals and toxins on putting on my face. The advice I was given by Siobhan and her team was to continue replacing my skin and beauty products with all natural alternatives. Once my skin adjusts to using toxin-free products, it will naturally heal itself and all those pesky skin reactions I experience will eventually go away. It makes perfect sense – your skin will only be as good as what you put on it…and that begins with using CLEAN products.
Some of the all natural and organic beauty brands I was introduced to during my visit were Pai, May Lindstrom, RMS Beauty and Vapour. I’ll be experimenting more with these beauty brands in the months to come, so stay tuned for my reviews!
