I Always Knew She Was Your Favorite!

No mother on the planet will admit it.  It’s taboo to even suggest it. But deep down inside, when it’s late at night and she’s hiding under the covers eating ice cream with a sugar cone as a spoon - when she thinks no one is listening or paying attention -  the truth will slip out and she’ll think to herself that she really does have a favorite child.

Every mother does have a favorite child.  Like, we’re certain if you ask Mary, she’d say her favorite child was Jesus.  Same if you ask Madonna - she’d say her favorite child is obviously Rocco. If you ask Kris Jenner her favorite would obviously be the child whose Instagram posts draw the highest endorsement deals.  

I mean, we know that everyone’s favorite blog is Lipgloss + Aftershave - obvi!

Having a favorite is natural. We all have a favorite dessert. And if you say, “I’m not really a dessert person,” just know Jenni and I secretly judge you, because we live for cake!  But the point is - we all have a favorite! Which gave us this question, “Do the owners of skincare companies have a favorite product they sell?” Um, duh!  Of course!

We reached out  and asked if the founders could pick their favorites.  Many of these companies are small businesses where the founders develop each product themselves.  These women eat, sleep and breath their business. These products are like their children - yet we asked them to pick a favorite.  We knew it would be hard, but we forced them to pick just one.

These Products Always Get Extra Presents On Their Birthday!

Enzyme Mask - Saian Skincare

Our best-selling product is also Dasha Saian's favorite! What's not to love? Saian’s unique and highly effective botanical enzymatic mask is specially formulated to liquefy and remove dead cells and impurities that accumulate on the surface of the skin. The mask’s gentle, natural blend lightens the skin, activates cellular function, increases circulation, fades discoloration and leaves the skin feeling and looking fresh, smooth and healthy. It's the perfect exfoliating mask or blemished skin, blackheads and even cystic acne. Soft, gentle and excellent for soothing skin conditions such as rosacea, eczema, rashes, psoriasis and acne. Paraben-free, artificial color-free, propylene glycol-free, unscented. No special activator required – so easy - just ix the powder with warm water and apply for 10-15 mins.

Bright Day Cream - E&M Apothecary

This item is my favorite because it is good for so many things; discoloration, acne, scarring, fine lines and wrinkles.  It is packed with potent sources of beta-carotene (orange, grapefruit, and tangerine), which has been scientifically proven that when applied topically, skin actually converts it into Vitamin A – which is the silver bullet for skin.  This crème is literally food for your skin, how amazing is that?

Resurfacing treatment made with plant oils containing high amounts of natural beta-carotene, this creme helps to resurface skin, repairing the appearance of sun and oxidative damage, acne scarring, and helps to diminish acne as well. This crème provides potent moisture, and turbo-charged antioxidant repair to brighten skin naturally.
