A St. Louis Organic Skincare Brand That Minimalists Will Love
In a society of excess, it makes sense that by contrast the minimalist movement has found steady footing, as a lifestyle promoting peace without excess. It’s this philosophy that has grounded Lark Skincare, an independent St. Louis-based skincare brand developed by aesthetician Lisa Dolan. Concerned about toxic and harmful ingredients that often make their way into cosmetic and self-care products, she began researching alternative options when she became pregnant, but the options were slim to none.
Undeterred, she began developing her own products and letting her clients test them out. We love Lark’s line of 21 beauty, wellness and skincare products, as well as the less-is-more beauty philosophy. Try the Lark beauty balm, made with organic coconut oil and essential oils. It’s the perfect after-shower body moisturizer, and for those without coconut oil sensitivity it can be used on the face as a moisturizer and cleanser. Dip a toe in the essential oil craze with the roll-on crystal-infused oil in the scent Date Night. It’s a fresh, elegant blend of rose, geranium and lemon, which Dolan infuses herself with rose petals and rose quartz.
If you hear “crystal-infused essential oil” and a New Age nightmare comes to mind, don’t knock it before you try it. You may well be drinking the Kool-Aid before you know it.
