Hometown Holidays: Certified Organic Skin Care

I bought a set of Farmaesthetics travel sizes last Christmas for a stocking stuffer (that was much appreciated), and when I popped in last month, I spotted this great little set that comes in a pretty little package. The Farmaesthetics Facial-to-Go ($33) includes travel-size glass bottles of Fine Herbal Cleanser (1 fl. oz), Nourishing Lavender Milk (1 fl. oz), and Sweet Milk and Lavender Buds Facial Exfoliate (1 oz). The kit is ideal for travelers, in and out of the gym, and for any Farmaesthetics first-timer to sample the cetified organic, paraben-free line that is absent of all dyes, fragrances, fillers, petroleum and talc. Facial-to-go is available at the Farmaesthetics flagship shop on Bellevue Avenue, at Green Envy Eco-Boutique in Brick Market Place and Most Naturally in Narragansett.

Shopping for an already Farmaesthetics fan? The newly introduced herbal serum Complexion Conserve ($48) restores radiance and vitality to the skin. The vitamin-filled elixir, which contains carrot seed oil, rose otto oil, soy oil and vitamin E,  is said to: accelerate the skin’s natural repair process, minimize pigmentation and inflammation, and restores elasticity to skin in need (including the dehydrated, stressed or sun-damaged). It was recently reviewed following a month-long trial on and came through with a glowing rave.

SAVINGS TIP: Shop on on and for every full size product you purchase, you will receive a FREE luxury travel size of the same product by entering promo code “Stockingstuffer” at checkout. Good through December 10th.

Going Au Natural with BRYCE

It’s common to see shoppers in the grocery store aisle, eyes intent a product’s nutritional information, educating themselves and making decisions on what to put in their body. But have you ever inspected the ingredients of your beauty and personal care products? Octyl Stearate? Sodium Lauryl Sulfate? Triclosan? Ugh. Recently learning more about some of the misinformation, dangers and mislabeling that runs rampant throughout the cosmetic industry thanks to organizations like the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, I was delighted to discover Rhode Island-made Bryce Organic Skin Care for sale at Green Envy in Brick Market Place and used at the The Spa at the Newport Marriott.

BRYCE products are 100% natural, made from organic whole fruit and vegetable pureés, and are devoid of chemicals and artificial ingredients. The exfoliating scrubs, vitamin-rich and antioxidant masques, facial peels, soaps and body mists are all paraben-free– something to applaud,  considering 99% of all beauty, cosmetic and personal care products contain a form of parabens. Creator Adrian Bryce Dior, who bases the line out of Providence, is committed to using premium ingredients and will be introducing new products in the near future.

I’m still loving the invigorating scents of the Mediterranean Pomegranate,  California Meyer Lemon, Rhode Island Pumpkin Enzyme and Hawaiian Coconut exfoliating facial scrubs I found at Green Envy, but am looking forward to exploring other other products, including New Zealand Kiwifruit Exfoliating Polishing Scrub & Vitamin C Masque and the New York Finger Lakes Grape Restoring Facial Peel (if you’ve never tried grape-based skin care, you’re missing out; the clean scent and refreshing results are heavenly).

Green Envy is located in Newport’s Brick Market Place at 223 Goddard Row, Newport, (401) 619-1993,, The Spa at the Newport Marriott is located at 25 America’s Cup Avenue, (401) 849-1000,
