What We’re Loving
Nadine Artemis, the creator of Living Libations, is always bringing gentle and loving awareness to the different parts of our bodies through the products she creates – and she has totally hit the nail on this one… Her products are a beautiful meeting of scent, intention, and information, and this product is no exception.

Kosäs’ blush is extremely versatile and light, so you can use it as an eyeshadow or highlighter if you wish. Rosemary extract helps circulation, promoting a naturally rosy glow, and rice bran oil boosts the skin’s moisture. Jojoba and moringa oil work as anti-ageing components in these awesome formulas.

Intelligent Nutrients has been creating quite a buzz among Kolya’s staff and customers. This brand truly embodies the concept that it is possible to create products that are free from toxic chemicals while still delivering noticeable results. In addition to using only the cleanest ingredients, Intelligent Nutrients products contain plant stem cells, which utilize the most potent properties of the plant and are cultivated in the purest lab conditions so they are unable to be contaminated by pollution or pesticides. While we are currently loving the entire line, there are a few products that really stand out…
The Time Traveler Serum- Suitable for all skin types, this silky serum is the perfect balance between a cream and a gel and absorbs seamlessly into the skin with no oily residue. Plant retinols encourage cell regeneration while Sea Daffodil diffuses the appearance of dark spots and Red Algae boosts moisture content in even the deepest layers of skin. Depending on your skin type this product can be used on its own, or applied before your favourite moisturizer.
Detoxifying Glycolic Gel– Designed for all skin types, especially oily, this treatment gel is a superhero for those of us with dull, devitalized complexions, and large pores. Plant-based glycolic acid gently removes dead surface cells, stimulates collagen, and minimizes pore-congestion and excessive oil production to reveal radiantly smooth skin. This product can be applied as a treatment as needed, or up to twice daily under a moisturizer.

Named the “Cult” Serum, by many…

Yes”, from Forbes.

“Natural perfumes don’t work, and they definitely don’t last”- said no one who has tried the Roller-Ball perfumes from Lilfox.⠀

They are formulated with an array of the finest essential oils, absolutes, CO2 extracts, florals, resins, and spices, and leave a gorgeous scent on your skin, all day long.
