Wednesday, December 25, 2019 | 3:09 pm

Let’s face it. Achieving a recharged and glowing skin tone is no easy task and the chances of blindly buying a sub par skin product online is even more likely to happen. So where can you go to try out the season’s sought after earthy skincare aromatics? The answer is LATHER, right here in Old Pasadena.

Here’s four of LATHER’s skincare products that can kickstart your glowing skin routine:

Daily Essential Oil Kit (Retail: $39)
The new Daily Essentials collection features an assortment of five 100% pure, certified organic essential oils for daily wellness. The kit includes our most popular aromas to help balance, harmonize and promote the health of body, mind and spirit. Each oil carries USDA organic certification, ensuring the highest level of quality and purity. Blend with unscented products, or use with an at-home diffuser.


Eucalyptus: Native to Australia, this potent essential oil was used for hundreds of years by Aboriginal tribes for its healing properties. Often used in steam rooms to ease congestion, eucalyptus has a bright aroma often described as fresh and sweet, with woody undertones. The plant is known for being cooling to the body, improving circulation and respiratory infections—and is even considered a natural insect repellant. Add a couple drops to a wash cloth and hang in the warm shower for the ultimate at-home spa experience.


Peppermint: Encourage a productive morning by starting your day with this energizing essential oil. Minty and herbaceous, peppermint stimulates the senses and relieves fatigue—perfect for those early Monday mornings. In addition to being refreshing and awakening the mind, it’s also a perfect addition to a foot bath (or moisturizer) to soothe tired, achy feet.


Grapefruit: Uplifting, citrusy and slightly tangy, grapefruit essential oil is sweeter than the scent typically associated with the ruby- colored fruit. Use the oil to help promote cheer and a sense of wellbeing on those cloudy, dreary winter days. Its purifying, stress- relieving nature is sure to bring some aromatic sunshine and good vibes into your life, just when you need it the most.


Lemongrass: The key aromatic ingredient in LATHER’s signature Bamboo Lemongrass products, this invigorating essential oil is a great choice for those 3 p.m. afternoon slumps. Instead of turning to caffeine, why not mix a few drops into moisturizer and indulge in the grassy, sweet and clean lemon smell? Wonderful to help muscle pain and headaches, just a little bit of this product (a few drops) will go a long way.


Lavender: The most popular of all essential oils, lavender possesses a complex floral aroma that encourages calm feelings and help with a deep, restorative sleep. Its relaxing sedative properties also helps loosen tight muscles, soothes irritated skin and provides stress relief. Considered to be one of the gentlest of all essential oils, it’s a versatile aroma that blends well with the other scents.


Rose Lip + Cheek Tint ($13)
Our multi-purpose lip and cheek tint gives a perfect sheer, luminous and rosy hue. Incredibly flattering, it delivers a soft glowing shimmer and blush to both the lips and cheeks. The large size is easy to use and will never get lost in your purse.

We love: the vegan formula with organic rosehip seed oil, coconut oil, argan oil and shea butter, for kissably soft lips and radiant cheeks.

No carmine, petrolatum, parabens, sulfates, mineral oil or synthetic fragrance, flavors, sweeteners or colors. Vegan. Never tested on animals.


Quiet Night Pillow Mist (Retail: $18)
Get your best rest with our NEW sleep enhancing linen spray, infused with a unique essential oil blend of organic lavender, organic ylang-ylang, plus cedar wood, ho wood and lemon. Spritz over your pillow before bed and let the soothing blend calm and quiet your senses, helping you to feel rested, restored and ready for a new day. The perfect travel friendly size, use to relax, even when on the go.


Jade Roller (Retail: $29)
Wake up your entire face with the cooling sensation of natural jade stone. The gentle massage helps to calm puffy skin, tighten pores and promote circulation. It also prepares skin to better absorb serums, oils, creams and wellness balms. The result is healthy, radiant looking skin.

Due to its natural origin, color and pattern vary from stone to stone.

We love: using with moisture magnet for a boost of hydration for more radiant looking skin.
