Ever heard of skincare products that are not only clean, non-toxic, and cruelty free but are also formulated with wine, spirits, sake and craft brew? Well if you haven’t, you need to know about Intoxicating Beauty, a truly unique skincare line that is actually all of that!
I recently discovered it and was so intrigued - I am automatically drawn to things that resonate with The Gilded Bellini, and Intoxicating Beauty really could not be any more on point! If you thought that wine, spirits, sake and craft brew were only enjoyable to drink, you are pleasantly mistaken (and I was too!). They actually have healing qualities that when formulated together with Intoxicating Beauty ingredients, nourish and heal even the most sensitive skin while respecting the beauty of the environment. Intoxicating Beauty, created by beauty mixologist Tessa Norvell provides powerful skincare solutions for everyone, no matter their skin type.
The two products I’ve been obsessed with? Body Rinse on the Rocks and Salt Emollient Twist!
Body Rinse on the Rocks - Hand & body wash made of… VODKA!
I love cleansing with this and warm water, followed by a quick rinse of cold water to help close the pores. Just like a blast of cold water is good for your hair, it’s the same for your skin.
According to Intoxicating Beauty, “Vodka has been revered for centuries as a natural antiseptic and astringent. It is known for its purifying and beautifying properties. This refreshing, organic vodka-infused formula is enriched in aloe leaf juice and lime oil. It is loaded with hydration and oils to help leave your skin soft, conditioned, and supple after cleansing. It is infused with our intoxicating, signature Lime Vodka Tonic natural fragrance.” To my surprise, vodka is actually a natural antiseptic and astringent. It also helps to purify, balance and tone the skin while simultaneously controlling oil production. As someone who has always struggled with oily skin, this is seriously the coolest news to me. Guess if I’m ever low on toner, I can confidently use vodka as a back up option!
Salt Emollient Twist - An amazing face and body salt polish. I personally LOVE a great body polish. It really makes you feel like a new person once your skin gets that super smooth feel. This luxurious formula uses the power of organic vodka, a beautiful blend of nourishing oils, shea butter and ultra-fine salt crystals to delicately buff away dry, dead skin cells. This moisturizing polish will help promote skin renewal, overall skin hydration and will leave your skin with a healthy glow. Not only does this polish make my skin feel incredibly smooth, but it really leaves such a gorgeous, fresh scent behind on the skin that’s super relaxing. It makes me forget that it’s made of vodka!
I love that these products have an awesome story and concoction behind them, more importantly that they are truly good quality and have been such a treat to my skin. I can’t wait to try the rest of the line. Which Intoxicating Beauty products do you want to try??!
