Isn’t if funny how we are so quick to spread love to others and leave ourselves in the dust? It seems that in most aspects of living, we put ourselves at the bottom of the list and (often) forget to show ourselves the love at all. This can be said about our delegation of time, our energy spent, our attention. Think about your skin, for example. I, for one, know that I am hyper aware of what goes in my body and where my food comes from and what medications I am prescribed and for what reason. But when it comes to skincare, I only recently have started paying attention to what goes ON my skin. From sunscreen to lotion to lip balm, my choices generally were basd on price, smell, and packaging. (I’m a total sucker for great packaging.) Seems my awareness needs to catch up and start paying attention to my skin.
Adina Grigore started creating products for her uber-sensitive skin and wasn’t sure if other people would even like them. But like them, they did. S.W. Basics of Brooklyn is a line of skincare where every product is made with all-natural (as in REALLY, not just labeled so) and eco-conscious ingredients. In fact, every product contains five or less ingredients because, really, that is all that is needed. Less is definitely more. My two small children are obsessed with lip balm recently and I am absolutely going to order a handful of the Cocoa Lip Balm for them (since they love anything chocolate) and this Cream seems like exactly the answer I need for my (recently) temperamental skin. S.W. Basics is a shop filled with self-love, the absolute best kind. More love, less unnecessary nonsense.
