I don’t know about you, but my skin has been through the ringer this past year. It has been all of the things that you’d expect with stress – dry, inflamed, and even…adult acne – oh no! I’ve never missed my aesthtetician more, but also tried to regain my balance in skin and life by eating healthier, exercising and embracing new products that ensure gentlessness. I feel so fortunate to have found Luma & Leaf, whose mission is just as beautiful as its packaging. The brand uses sustainably-sourced botanical ingredients of excellent quality that are free of synthetic dyes and artificial fragrances while still being non-toxic, cruelty free, and safe for sensitive skin (among other great attributes).
The products that I found to politely guide my skin in the direction it needed include the Afterglow Serum, Hydraglow Cleansing Gel, and Relief & Repair Moisturizer. I’ve gotten in the habit of washing my face less, believe it or not, in order to not overdry it, and the Cleansing Gel’s green tea, provitamin B5, CBD and hyaluronic acid provide the perfect combination of nature and nuture for my skin. As I tend to be in a rush in the morning, I leave the Afterglow Serum (similar ingredient properties to the cleanser) on my desk and pump a little out to massage in while I start to fire off emails, and follow up with the Relief & Repair Moisturizer to hydrate and soothe my skin into its enhanced state (includes Shea butter, rosehip and hemp seed oils, wild oats, Vitamins A, B, and D, and CBD). The Luma & Leaf premium products come in at $30-$34 each, which is extremely reasonable for the tremendous value and thoughtfulness put into each product in the line. I’m looking forward to hearing your thoughts when you get to try Luma & Leaf, and the expansion of its product line as time goes on (FYI, it also has face mists!).

I have to admit that I’ve made a mistake. Several years ago, I had sworn off Palo Santo, declaring the scent, and anything associate with it was not for me. I think that I had sniffed the oil in its concentrated form, and thought it too be too woodsy or musky for me, but in reality, anything in that kind of intensity can be hard to take for an extended period of time.
La Parea Wellness, a natural plant-based aromatherapy and beauty brand, utlizes the Palo Santo for both pain relief and relaxing formats cut with other oils such as peppermint olive, hemp or tea tree oils for a heightened aromatherapy experience. I’ve been loving the Palo Santo Face & Body Mist Spray ($17, pictured above), which rejevenates my skin and senses when I’m feeling the late afternoon sleepies coming on.
The Palo Santo Relaxing Body Balm ($20, pictured below) can be used as a tiger balm for aches and pains, but I also have been enjoying the scent and hydrating benefits by rubbing it into my cuticles while working.
Based on my experience, thanks to La Parea, it just may be time to consider or re-think Palo Santo!
