Do you remember when Siobhan introduced us to Skincando back in the early days? Skincando remains a player in our world of clean skincare companies we love, and we’re happy to put them back in the spotlight with a special Friday Deal. Here’s the deal:
Skincando is offering 20% off and free shipping through Wednesday, August 27th. No code necessary, just shop and go!
You know it’s time to do a Friday Deal when the moment you mention a company Alexandra starts gushing about how their balm is a daily staple. We asked her to share what makes Skincando the jam.
So, I’ve been meaning to write a review of the Combat Balm for several months. But because the deal is happening RIGHT NOW, I’m going to try to summarize my love for this product. I’m on my third jar and I use it diligently every single day. I am a balm fanatic, as some of you know: There was a time when I would have squandered all my savings on Tammy Fender’s balm, and I will happily use a quality lip balm right on my face. This though, has been my one and only, and my hands-down favorite. It goes on a little thick (which I like) and leaves skin looking dewy NOT greasy. I mix it with my foundation for the most glorious, photoshopped-face effects. Everything about this balm makes me happy, even the fact that it contains fish oil (sorry, to the strict vegan crew) because I’m pretty sure that’s why it nourishes my skin in a way I’ve never experienced. Don’t be confused by the tough-guy, swiss-army knife packaging! (I was—and had a sample that sat for some time in my cupboard before I tried it.) This is a sophisticated clean product at a super fair price—and a downright DEAL today. Happy balming! - Alexandra
Got it? Get it. Also, watch this lovely video about Skincando over on the American Made site. We love seeing artisans at their craft.

Have you tried any skincare products from KYPRIS? This newish natural line has been on our radar, and we’re giving you a chance to be one of the first to try it out. As a line, KYPRIS has been sold for the past two years to the natural medicine market. Just this month after updating their gorgeous packaging, they launched into their first apothecary with BeauTeaBar. (If you haven’t ordered from BeauTeaBar yet, you’ll be delighted with your experience. Promise.)
With ingredients that are 100% natural and nature-derived from plants that are wildcrafted or organic, KYPRIS boasts some serious phytonutrient power. Sustainability is core to their mission, too, and they source ingredients accordingly. For example, the rose oil in the 1,000 Roses elixir is from biodynamically grown roses on an organic certified farm in Bulgaria whose owner works with the United Nations to transition Afghani poppy fields to roses. We have major love for this kind of thinking.
Another aspect of KYRPIS’ sustainability is how they talk about beauty. Says KYPRIS founder Chase Polan, “We don’t talk about or try to sell anyone on the concept of ‘anti aging.’ As a brand, our position is that aging is a privilege and has little to do with what you look like or feel like. So our attentions are more acutely focused on how we can best nourish our patrons’ skin and experience of themselves.” Can I get an amen to that?
To celebrate the launch of KYPRIS at BeauTeaBar, we’re offering one reader the chance to win the KYPRIS Beauty Elixir I – 1,000 Roses!
KYPRIS Beauty Elixir I – 1,000 Roses is full of natural actives that repair signs of environmental damage to deliver a healthy, dewy complexion. The only US-made CoQ10, Vitamin C Ester, a plethora of botanical extracts, and the essential oil of more than 1,000 organic Bulgarian roses are just a few of the ingredients that work to rejuvenate dull, tired skin. The experience doesn’t stop there… the aromatherapeutic benefits of this elixir open the heart chakra and promoting feelings of self-love. Roses forever!
