This brand has beautiful packaging in such a sustainable way. We got to test their lip balm (smells SO good) and their creame deodorant (which also smells incredible). This brand is not only beautiful, but affordable too.

From this brand, we got to try their "C" Perfect Skin, Cloud Of Protection and Face Fix. They have awesome packaging and such good reasoning behind their products. They're small batch, handmade, vegan and cruelty free. From their site, "C" Perfect Skin is, "“C” Perfect Skin helps reduce the appearance of aging, sun damage, dark spots and scarring, while protecting against further damage. Your skin will look and feel beautifully smooth, soft, moisturized and healthy — with youthful clarity restored."

Cloud Of Protection is, "This formula contains anti-microbial essential oils used to fight airborne bacteria and viruses.  These plant essences have been used through the ages to clear the air of negativity and cleanse the space.  Cloud of Protection empowers you to change your surroundings, making room for good fortune and happiness."

And Face Fix is, "This facial powder contains 12 organic herbs to fix your face!   Designed with sensitive skin in mind while still being very effective for acne prone and confused skin. Totally free of surfactants, preservatives and emulsifiers; no junky stuff!"
