Naturopathica

I love a lot of natural companies out there, but Naturopathica really brings it all together for me – a holistic approach to skin care, artisanal sourcing of ingredients, incredible natural scents, and visible as well as therapeutic benefits.

I added a few natural beauty products to my regime recently and Naturopathica’s Sweet Cherry Brightening Enyzme Peel was one of them. Let me just say that ever since I tried a peel, I’ve been in love.  Reason number one being that it’s so much easier to get off than a mask.  And number two being that a good peel, like this one, just seems to make your skin effortlessly refined and glowing almost immediately.  Don’t get me wrong, when it comes to cleaning pores, I swear by masks that are usually green, hard, and positively enraging at times to remove (example: Aztec Indian Healing Clay). But masks like that really feel like work. Not this one.

This peel by Naturopathica smells and looks like they just mashed up the cherries yesterday – it’s simply amazing (if you like cherries, you’ll really be in heaven). There are sweet benefits to go with that sweet scent – cherries’ are high in Vitamin C and Beta Carotene and when applied topically they refine skin, decrease inflammation, as well as prevent skin discoloration.  After just 3-5 minutes (1-2 times/week), you can remove the fruity blend to reveal a fresher faced version of yourself. That’s only 10 minutes tops per week!

Originally being from Long Island, I love that this company is based in East Hampton. It’s always nice to see a great company come out of your neck of the woods.  I also love the packaging – blue glass is my fav, not only because it’s so pretty, but also because it’s excellent for maintaining the integrity of products containing essential oils.

Now there’s only two things I want to do after trying this mask: (1) Try every single product made my Naturopathica; (2) Take a trip to East Hampton asap to experience their spa, which includes an Apothecary Bar (the “destination for custom blended beauty products and remedies”) I can barely describe  how incredible that sounds to me… like heaven, especially if I could have the chance to get behind that bar!

  1. Natoropathica (love the name!) sounds awesome! I have never done a skin peel before but it sounds like something so beneficial for the skin. I adore using fruit based products so this sounds like something I would really like. I’ll be sure to check it out!

  2. I have been using Naturopathica products for almost 3 years (I am fortunate enough to live nearby the spa), and they are all amazing. The enzyme peel described here is just as described – truly magical. After I use it, my skin feels incredibly soft and does indeed glow! Peels are great – don’t be freaked out by the name – and this one can sting a bit if your skin is not used to it. But, for me, the sting means it’s doing its job and does fade with frequent use. Naturopathica’s products are on the expensive side, but you never need to use a lot of any one product, so they last a long time. I also highly recommend the Vitamin K eye cream, Vitamin C face cream and any of the serums.

  3. Fantastic timing on this one. Last night as I was going to bed I was literally thinking I needed to find a mask that was non-toxic. And now here I am here looking at this! Awesome! Thanks Annie!! ps – updating links this aft and will be adding you to dailies!
