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.

Deal of the Day

PREP (182 Thames Street), the delightful beauty boutique in the heart of downtown Newport, offers local shoppers a delicious deal: Buy one Lip Slip ® by Sara Happ and get a coveted Lip Scrub free ($24 value). Lip Slip, a colorless luxe balm infused with sweet almond, jojoba and macadamia nut oils, is said to offer the glossiest hydration imaginable. The balm is at its best when applied after exfoliating with a peppermint, cocoa, vanilla bean or cinnamon sugar Lip Scrub.

PREP opened its stylish and sophisticated doors in spring 2008 in a sometimes overlooked but inviting space overlooking bustling Thames Street (look for the signature pink Prep sign across from Brooks Brothers, next to Busker’s and above The Humidor Smoke Shop). Once inside, you’ll discover sleek white cabinets with wooden countertops littered with glittering glosses, beauteous blushes and shimmering shadows, all anchored by a large antique oak library card catalogue showcasing even more brands. In front of the floor to ceiling windows hangs a charming petal chandelier— frankly, Prep is every girl’s dream vanity.

In addition to Sara Happ, high-end brands include Kiehl’s, Becca, Alison Raffaele (including natural, paraben free, environmentally friendly products), Julie Hewitt, Stila, Girlactik Beauty (and their famous eye glazes), Napoleon Perdis, Paul & Joe, Tracy Stern Salon Tea, Becker Eshaya fragrances, Bryce organic and paraben free skin care and Coola sun and skin care. Come play and get gorgeous at Prep!
