In today's era, a lengthy skincare routine featuring an array of products is wildly encouraged. Though seeking such an extravagant skincare regimen with conflicting ingredients may leave skin in a more vulnerable state than when one started. The answer to healthy skin is not found by the number of products used but rather it is the quality of ingredients which produce real results. Sachi Skin is one unique brand which sought to do exactly this by developing a potent and highly-effective streamlined range geared towards healing skin through the power of ayurvedic medicine. Read on to discover how this remarkable brand is treating skin and using centuries-old powerhouse ingredients with scientifically-backed contemporary elements to reverse skin damage.

Motivated by her own skin concerns, founder Farah Bashir, a formally trained aesthetician and cosmetic developer, wanted to create a powerful skincare range which solved the major concerns that arise in melanin-rich skin while being both safe and accommodating to such skin types. Through innovative research and proprietary technologies, Bashir's carefully-crafted formulations for her Sachi Skin range endured strict clinical trials and practices which not only proved product efficacy but offered a simplified skincare collection delivering real results.

The four powerhouse products offered by Sachi Skin tackle key skin concerns like hyperpigmentation, anti-aging, inflammation as well as other common skin woes with ease and accuracy. Though most interestingly, each potent product in this tightly-crafted collection features multifaceted reparative aspects which aids a number of issues without the need and heft of additional products. Bashir exceptionally achieves skin healing through her expert formulations and highlights the power of single product skincare that offers lasting results without complication.  

Bashir's deep appreciation for ayurvedic medicine is woven  throughout Sachi Skin's skincare range and anchors each of the brand's products with beneficial ayurvedic ingredients. Whether it's a blend of soothing botanicals like Holy Basl, Centella Asiatica (Indian pennywort), Bosewellia Serrata (indian frankincense) or clarifying natural agents like organic Neem and Black Cumin, incorporating trusted and mighty ancient ayurvedic healing botanicals with modern skincare contents ultimately creates an unparalleled remedy garnering real results without further skin disruption. The goal is not to seek perfection and flawless skin but rather use these proven and effective skincare compilations to achieve long-lasting healthy skin. 

To maximize on the valuable qualities of these centuries-old medicinal botanicals, Bashir carried these traditional methods to the modern era by developing a proprietary complex (10.5% Ayurvedic Bioflavonoid Healing Complex) aiming to revive suffering skin. This exclusive complex consists of a verified antioxidant-rich blend  that diminishes a wealth of skin aggravators like inflammation, blemish-prone activity, early signs of aging, oily conditions and active flareups. Expanding on these trusted ayurvedic healing practices and elements, this effective and safe complex as well as her skincare at large uniquely remedies these unsightly concerns while promoting a more even, brighter and healthy state of skin.

As we transition throughout seasons, our most delicate facial areas crave a restorative reset. Like the eye area, the lips tend to be far more delicate and fragile than the skin on the body and require a more attentive and targeted care strategy. Taking this concern into consideration and prioritizing lip care in an innovative fashion, luxury French skincare range Typology Paris has launched a unique lip-centric product aiming to restore and strengthen this delicate and often forgotten about area with ease. Read on to learn how this potent new launch is elevating lip health, expanding Typology's take on lip care and how it'll ultimately create softer, fuller, healthy lips.

RESURFACING LIP PEEL // AHA & Pomegranate Enzyme 
The newest addition in their lip care assortment, this advanced Lip Peel is formulated with pomegranate extracts and AHA (Mandelic acid), an effective and complimentary pairing of exfoliating agents that gently rid the lips of dead cells in a manner unlike traditional granular lip scrubs. Additionally, lips are highly vulnerable to environmental factors which are compounded during seasonal shifts when lips are more susceptible to overall health interruptions such as moisture-loss and textural changes leaving them in a more fragile, rough state. This naturally-derived lip peel not only adequately remedies these common lip concerns but does so in a non-abrasive manner that limits further damage to this already sensitive area. The result is a more nourished, smoothed and supple pout that serves as the perfect canvas for tinted lip products.

REPARING LIP MASK // Ceramides & Hyaluronic Acid
A decadent lip mask that drenches the lips in a veil of  ultra-hydrating and soothing ingredients, this targeted blend instantly goes to work on reviving damaged lips whilst protecting its barrier and maintaining moisture retention. Rich in hyaluronic acid, a star skincare component, this fortified substance protects the lips from further loss of moisture while it's hydrating elements keep the lips conditioned. Best of all, the reparative qualities of this acid in tandem with reinforcing ceramides aids in the softening and reduction of fine lines along the lips. The inclusion of mango butter (essential fatty acid), amplifies the healing components of the mask and creates a protective barrier that prevents additional damage or dehydration. A single use leaves the lips in a healthy, ultra-smooth state that will advance the overall state of the lips with continued use. 

Typology Paris heavily prioritizes the healing and hydrating needs of the lips and works towards creating beneficial products with essential and naturally-sourced ingredients that truly heal and restore the state of lips.

Summer Friday  Light Aura Vitamin C + Peptide Eye Cream

Have had this Vitamin C-laden eye cream sitting in my test pile for quite a while and dove right into it the moment my current option finished. A tiny but mighty skin wonder, this petite jar houses a potent pale orange-toned cream that has not only kept my under eye area hydrated but has revived the previous  dullness whilst providing some noticeable brightening along this sensitive area.

Perhaps the most aesthetically designed toner, Freck Cactus Water is far more than what meets the eye. The true value of the product lies in the water-like content sitting within the sleek bottle. Comprised of veggie and plant extracts (kelp and cactus), this hydrating toner has visibly evened out my skin while keeping it balanced (goodbye dead skin cells!) in this season's cool weather. 

Swapping my ultra-loved REN brightening toner for this BHA option, Algenist is proving to be a strong contender in my current routine. Keeping breakouts and blackheads at bay, my skin is not only tolerating this clarifying and exfoliating toner exceptionally well but its congestion-preventing qualities are keeping my skin healthy and supple.

A long adored product in my beauty arsenal, this rich priming and moisturizing hybrid product is one I reach for often during the cooler months. Abundant in hydrating hyaluronic acid and squalane (anti-inflammatory) with conditioning vitamins (C, E and B), this rich yet non-greasy moisturizer is the perfect companion to any complexion cosmetic. Keeping my skin adequately hydrated in the season's signature chill whilst creating an ideal canvas for foundation, this best-seller has been an incredible addition to my fall/winter beauty routine. 

Enhanced by Vitamin E, this fortified Vitamin C Serum really goes to work on boosting the radiance in skin and improving overall texture and tone. Now on my second bottle of this wonder serum, I can really speak to the quality and efficacy of this product. My skin has truly become brighter with use and the texture woes settle and smooth. An absolute winner in this skincare category.


Wowza, a mainstay in my beauty bag, this classic bronzing powder will always find a prime spot in my beauty drawer. Offering a perfect wash of bronze color, this summery product seamlessly warms up my complexion without the blotchy application often seen with cream or thicker bronzing powders. During the winter, I tend to crave extra warmth and this iconic Nars product wonderfully does the trick.

Infusing skin nourishing ingredients like Avocado Oil and Mango Butter, this teeny color stick is a purse-friendly product that offers a soft flush of color on-the-go. A favorite for when I want a touch up or add an extra boost of color, this unfussy cream formulation effortlessly blends onto the cheeks and lips without any harsh lines. During the winter season, I find myself reaching for color products that liven up my pale cold-weather skin. 

Never did I think a foundation could replace my love for Estee Lauder Double Wear but this fresh, sunscreen formulated blend did the impossible. A feathery, semi-matte foundation, Very Valentino offers the perfect veil of color without masking my natural skin's texture with a breathable finish. Best of all, his light yet buildable medium-coverage foundation stays put on my busiest days and looks lovely at any hour. Very interested to see how it lasts on the skin during the summer months. Stay tuned. 


With an uptick in frigid weather, my scalp is suffering in more ways than one and this Fable & Mane Scalp Scrub gives it both a much needed reset and squeaky clean finish. From product buildup to winter weather trauma, the unique blend of this scrub (Pink Himalayan Salt, Wild Ginger) effectively tackles the buildup sitting on my scalp, cleanses the surface while simulating my hair follicles and ultimately leaves my scalp in a more healthy and nourished state. My secret weapon to more purified and rejuvenated scalp, Fable & Mane SahaScalp range is the perfect remedy and treatment for healthy hair at the roots.


As an ultimate mix master with my personal fragrance choices, I just love a deluxe collection of scents that can be layered and paired to one's unique preferences. This wonderful discovery set of iconic Jo Malone fragrances was gifted to me months prior and I have since had an absolute blast blending and spritzing different scents together for a more tailored scent experience. I would highly recommend this set for any fragrance lover who not only wants an introduction to the brand but one who enjoys a variety of scent profiles from this incredible fragrance house.
