On this post for Beauty for Foodies, there’s better time than the present to gift yourself some incredible beauty products, like these made by Jacq’s Organics – today I’m sharing some of my favorites from this green beauty brand created by my friend Barbara in her studio in Florida.
Barbara and I met on the first night of the first ever WELL Summit in Boston last year and instantly hit it off. She’s the founder and owner of the beauty brand, Jacq’s Organics, based out of Florida and share her story with me. “Sourcing ingredients from local farmers, using raw unrefined ingredients and personally making each product in small batches is a how we seek to be the change“, is her mission. And it’s something you notice immediately who you use her products, so without further ado, here are my top picks from her brand line.
Sweet Orange Face Serum. First, let’s remember how addicted to a good serum I am. Nothing goes on smoother and lighter than a serum and this Sweet Orange face serum is a dream. It’s packed with vitamins C and E, as well as aloe vera extract, which is incredibly hydrating. Other ingredients include: reship seed, pumpkin sed, green tea extract, apricot seed oil. The refreshing scent revitalizes you as soon as you apply it on your face and neck. This is a must have for all skin types in my opinion and ideal for the cold winter season. It’s a serum that goes on and you can feel it working from day one in moisturizing your skin!
Oh and if you work at a desk all day, I recommend you have bottle of her Revitalizing Sweet Orange Face Toner. I myself keep it on my desk at all times and spritz it all over my face when it’s feeling a bit dry. It’s essential right now with the start of fall and winter in New England – it’s packed with delicious ingredients that feel so good on your skin like noli, hemp seed oil, and vanilla extract.
Now, when people start moving into cleaner beauty, they only focus on the things they slather on after their shower, but it’s key to remember that all those sudsy soaps in the bath are only clogging our pores with chemicals. Which is why I love that Barbara includes bar soaps in her line of products. The Detox Cleansing Bar is just what we all need after the holidays – it’s perfect for face and body! Specially after attending one too many holiday party, where you slap on more makeup than needed, this detox bar is sure to remove all toxins from your skin. Another great cleansing bar is her Carrot con Leche – so moisturizing and perfect if you live in warmer climate and plan on going to indulge in the beach sun a bit too much.
If you’re looking for an all-natural plant based brand, I fully recommend Jacq’s Organics. You won’t be disappointed! Hope you enjoyed this post in my new section, Beauty for Foodies. If you’re interested in reading about my decision of switching to natural deodorants, make sure to read here.
