Sweet, sweet summertime!
And the only thing on our minds? Soaking up all of this sweet, sweet SUNSHINE.
Great Things Boutique is sharing their seasonal favorites that will help keep your skin at peak summertime glow!
Did you know that Naturopathica’s mists are floral waters or hydrolats which means they are made using the natural by-products of the distillation of essential oils? Better yet…do you know what these mists do!? They tone the skin—after cleansing, they help bind moisture to the skin and restore the skin’s pH, essential for creating a healthy skin barrier. Both of these mists contain Aloe, a pre-biotic that supports the skin microbiome by nourishing the microbes, or bacteria that help protect your skin from outside irritants.

Some Summer Misting Tips:
- Store your mist in the fridge, then spritz to cool off after a day in the hot sun or post workout.
- Keep it on your desk at work and spritz throughout the day for quick moments of relaxation.
- Use as a setting spray after applying makeup to give your skin a dewy, natural glow.
A deluxe, travel-size set of Kaplan MD’s two bestsellers – Lip Mask & Ultra Hydrating Lip Balm – a must-have lip plumping treatment that instantly exfoliates dry, chapped skin while visibly plumping the lip contour, in just 2 simple steps. The result is instantly softer, smoother, fuller lips – naturally!
Step 1: Spread a generous layer of KAPLAN MD Lip Mask directly to clean lips. To treat the fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth, spread the Lip Mask about ½” beyond the natural lip line. You may experience a mild tingling. This is caused by the Papaya Enzymes, which targets dry, chapped skin and gently dissolves it away. Let the product sit on the skin for 3 to 5 minutes (5 to 10 minutes if you have very deep lines). Use a soft damp cloth or tissue to wipe off any excess product.
Step 2: After you exfoliate, you must hydrate! Follow immediately with a light layer of KAPLAN MD Ultra Hydrating Lip Balm to seal in hydration, and protect lips with SPF 20.
Special Tip: If you tend to get dry lips while you sleep, use Perfect Pout Duo as a nighttime lip treatment. Simply spread a very light layer of KAPLAN MD Lip Mask directly onto lips. Then pat on a thin layer of KAPLAN MD Ultra Hydrating Lip Balm. Allow both products to stay on your lips while you sleep. Wake up to beautifully soft, hydrated lips. These products are the perfect solution of you have thinning lips, dry, chapped lips, for redefining the lip contour, or softer, smoother, fuller lips.

Manuka Honey Cleansing Balm
This NEW cleansing balm from Naturopathica promotes a healthy skin microbiome with moisturizing Manuka Honey, strengthening pro-biotics and Royal Jelly Peptides to nourish and reinforce the skin barrier. A healthy microbiome protects against environmental pollution and reduces inflammation, so think of it as your skin’s first line of defense that must be nurtured.
And, trust us when we say, you will now look forward to your daily cleansing ritual … this Manuka Honey is truly THE BALM.
How to use: Apply to dry skin with fingers. Add small amount of water and massage skin. Wipe off with warm washcloth.
A little more behind the key ingredients:
- Manuka Honey: Produced by bees that pollinate the New Zealand Manuka Bush, this honey is prized for its antibacterial and humectant properties. In skin care, it helps to reinforce the skin’s lipids and clarify without stripping the skin.
- Royal Jelly Peptides: Queen bees live longer than worker bees because they consume Royal Jelly, which modifies gene expression to increase longevity and delay signs of aging. When used in skin care, this peptide helps accelerate skin renewal for smoother, more evenly toned skin.
- Lactobacillus Ferment Lysate Filtrate: Bacterial Lysates are a safe and stable way to add pre and probiotic benefits to skin care. They help to improve skin texture through enhanced moisturization and rejuvenation.
