For a Brazilian treatment that’s decidedly pain free, San Francisco spa-goers take note: Tre Balm has introduced a new skincare line and accompanying body wrap and peel based on the healing properties of plants and oils from the Brazilian Amazon.
Exclusive in San Francisco to the Presidio Heights day spa and sold by Fred Segal in Santa Monica, j. Sabatelli Skincare incorporates exotic oils such as Pracaxi and Buriti alongside antioxidant-packed Acai in a five-product collection ($400, individual products $48-$100) that includes a brightening face serum, moisturizing deep cleanser and collagen-building night treatment.
We know, we know. It’s what’s below the surface that counts. But that doesn’t mean we aren’t suckers for pretty packaging. In the best possible world, we’d get substance and style wrapped up in the same attractive little bundle.
We love any beauty product that does double duty, so we were immediately sucked in when we heard Pangea Organics offered a face mask that would not only spruce up our skin, but also arrives in plantable packaging that grows into Genovese Sweet Basil.
Made with natural ingredients such as Japanese matcha tea, acai and goji berry that promise to revitalize with antioxidants while polishing the skin, the Facial Mask comes wrapped in rugged paper packaging that you soak, then plant in soil. The seeds inside the packing should turn into sauce-worthy basil within just a few weeks.
