There is nothing like a good indie brand being sent my way to brighten my day, so when the sister duo from Vana Body sent me their goods I was ecstatic to try everything out! Franziska and Betti are sisters who are on a mission to create a clean simple collection of plant-based self-care goods for your body to love. They use vegan, organic, cold-pressed, virgin oils, botanicals and clays for their naturally healing properties. Of course these gems are formulated without any parabens, artificial dyes or fragrances and are super gentle on the skin! I personally am a HUGE fan of simple, minimalistic products so these agreed with me right away. Their product line is not overwhelming but offers something for everyone which I appreciate. I also love the variety of masks they offer at super affordable prices, you really can’t beat trying something from Vana Body because you can’t go wrong!
Vana Body Rosemary & Cedar Cleansing Oil: There isn’t anything that will clean your skin better than a cleansing oil, truly. It is the best way to remove all of the impurities while keeping your skin super soft and nourished at the same time. Sometimes cleansing oils will make me break out but so far so good with this one, which I attribute to the rosemary essential oil which is a wonderful antimicrobial oil to use for acne prone skin like mine! I simply massage the oil into dry skin then lay a warm damp cloth over my face until it cools, then gently wipe the rest of the oil off. Your skin will be left feeling super soft and healthy!! This is an absolute MUST for the with dry/aging skin!! Retail: $18 for 2 oz.
Vana Body Geranium & Aloe Toning Mist: I LOVE toners and I’m slightly addicted!! Not sure why but I just love how refreshed they make your skin feel, and how they prep your skin to soak in all the magical serums and oils!! Anyways this toner is a great one for those who have acne prone skin because of the addition of witch hazel which tightens skin and minimizes pores. The aloe is a wonderful addition because it soothes and calms while still moisturizing. This is a beautifully balanced toner at a super affordable price! Retail: $16 for 2 oz.
Vana Body Bergamot & Tea Tree Facial Oil: As much as I love face oils they still make me nervous since I have always had problematic skin!! The only face oil that has ever been a miracle worker for me is True Botanicals Balancing Face Oil, so needless to say I’m always apprehensive when trying a new one!! This gem was made to heal and balance using hemp seed oil, avocado oil, and golden jojoba oil which together improves skins texture, fights acne and reduces wrinkles! I actually liked this face oil and think it’s a nice affordable option for those who don’t want to break the bank on the more luxurious high-end oils!! You really can’t go wrong with this price tag! Retail: $22 for 1 oz.
Vana Body Rose Clay Mask: This mask is lovely! It’s super gentle but tightens pores and eliminates the toxins and impurities! It’s perfect for sensitive skin and really leaves you with a gorgeous glow! Made with white and rose kaolin clay, this is the perfect mask for those who don’t want anything too intense, yet something effective!! Retail: $22 for 2 oz.
