Meet Lara, a 39-year-old urban planner from Toronto. She started using Sola Skincare products a couple of years ago, looking for simple beauty solutions and a natural deodorant that works under pressure. Now she can’t live without the Sola Coconut Deodorant, Balancing Face Oil, and Rose Hydrosol which are all part of her daily face and body care routine.
It wasn’t necessarily the natural ingredients that drew me at first – although that didn’t deter me either. What drew me was the name. Coconut Deodorant?! I love anything coconut. And this was no exception.
What is exceptional is that IT WORKS! It’s not exceptional just because it’s a natural deodorant that actually works (I know, I know, “natural deodorants don’t work” – this one does!). But that it’s a deodorant that works, period.
For me most don’t, natural or not.
I have always been a sweater. Not the kind that keeps you warm but the kind that responds to being warm – to pressure, to cardio, to putting on mascara, to leisurely walks, to standing still – with sweat.
I sweat. A lot.
This is why I LOVE Sola Coconut Deodorant.
The tangible but light texture. The subtle, just right, hint of coconut scent. That it absorbs my sweat and keeps the not-so-sweet scents from becoming not so subtle. That it works. The simple, natural ingredients and genuine folks behind it are a bonus (a BIG one!).
Did I mention that it works?
Balancing Face Oil
I tried the Sola Balancing Face Oil because I wanted something simple, with ingredients I can pronounce that I can feel good about putting on my face. I want to nourish my skin. I want my experience not to just show, but to glow. I want to feel good about the products I use and who I see in the mirror.
This is why Sola Balancing Face Oil IS for me:
I feel good about putting it on my face. I take my time massaging it in – it’s ME time. The subtle, earthy (not too earthy) scent lingers just right.
The oil, surprisingly at first, absorbs much better than the face creams of my past. The Sola Balancing Face Oil absorbs but the moisture lasts.
My fine lines are softened not burned away by toxic chemical ingredients I can’t even pronounce.
I can pronounce simple ingredients like argan, sweet almond, jojoba, carrot seed, lavender and sandalwood oils. And I can feel the calming nourishment of the Chinese herbs. I appreciate how they make my skin look and feel. My skin looks and feels good. Simple.
The Sola Rose Hydrosol is like a sweet summer mist. I love the gentle spritz action, very refreshing and works as a good wake-me-up on groggy mornings and a great base for blending in the Sola Balancing Face Oil.
Over the years, I have tried many toners and found most to dry out my skin, especially the overpriced alcohol-laden offerings at your typical drugstore. Now that 40 is fast approaching, I especially want to be gentle on my aging skin.
Sola’s simple approach to this classic face skin care is perfect for me. I sometimes spritz just to perk up tired eyes. And it’s part of my morning and night routine, blending with the Sola Balancing Face Oil to create a perfect glow, leaving my skin dewy but not glossy, moisturized but not weighed down. Sort of like the three bears of skin care, the Sola Rose Hydrosol is not too much, not too little – it’s really just right.
