Fall Fresh: Seven Local, All-Natural Beauty Products
1. Amber Blue lavender-rose cleanser and mask
The plants used in this super-absorbent face mask are grown in a Hudson herb garden. Lavender combats blemishes and blotchiness, while ground rose petals firm, tone, and encourage cell renewal.
$33, Amber Blue.
2. Little Frog Essentials foot scrub
Made in Quincy, this invigorating scrub sloughs off dry, beach-weary skin with soothing peppermint oil and anti-inflammatory Dead Sea salts.
$23, Little Frog Essentials.
3. Soelle argan oil
This fatty-acid-rich serum restores moisture, vitamins, and minerals to brittle hair, nails, and skin.
$29, A New Leaf.
4. Soy of Life “Eye Promise!” cream
Zap signs of fatigue with this under-eye salve, fortified with green tea—which eliminates dark circles—and soy peptides to increase collagen and elastin.
$33, Healthy Appetites.
5. Organic Bath Co. “Java Jolt” scrub
The almond, apricot, and sunflower oils in this scrub (crafted in small batches in Boston) keep skin hydrated, but the formula’s secret weapon—caffeine—does the heavy lifting, helping to reduce cellulite, reverse UV damage, and ward off free radicals.
6. Jamela lip moisturizer
Argan oil, spearmint, shea butter, and honey bring new life to rough, dry puckers.
$12, Corbu Spa & Salon
7. Farmaesthetics “Fine Herbal Cleanser”
Light with a rich lather, this refreshing wash (made sustainably in Rhode Island) contains detoxifying geranium oil, lavender to stimulate circulation, and witch hazel to hydrate and soften skin.
