Made with organically grown herbs, flowers, oils and grains, its no surprise Farmaesthetics is the skincare line of choice at luxury spas across the globe. Newport is lucky enough to be home to it’s flagship store on Bellevue Avenue, where you can sniff and sample all the sustainable goodness from cleansers and exfoliants to serums, soaps and salves.
If you’re still looking for that special something for friends and family to unwrap, Farmaesthetics’ gift sets are ideal because everything they create is hypo-allergenic, non-irritating and dermatological tested (not animal tested). Neatly packaged and super cute, sets include the “Hot Toddy for the Body” (exfoliate & moisturize), “Winter Greens” (Remedy Reserve Mask, Aetheric Bath & Body Oil,Vapor Bath Elixir and a handmade organic soap), “Facial to Go” (cleanser, exfoliate and lavender milk), “On the Go Travel Set” (eye makeup remover & treatment oil, aloe mist, nourishing lavender milk, lavender rub, and softening salve—all less than an ounce to guarantee easy airport check-through). And of course you can build your own set, or simply wrap one great find, like the new heavenly Dreaming Oil, an inhalation oil that you place a drop of in your hands, rub them together, then inhale to relax (Farmaesthetics calls it “a lullaby in a bottle for grown-ups”).
The challenge this time of year? To buy these skin-loving treasures without a “one for me, one for you” approach!
Farmaesthethics is located at 144 Bellevue Avenue, Newport and products are also carried locally at Green Envy Eco-Boutique located at 8 Franklin Street, just off Thames, in Newport.
