    Holy cocktail for your face! If you know me at all you already know I have a major love of fruit enzyme exfoliators. They are an amazingly gentle way to naturally remove dull dead skin without the harsh side effects that synthetic or stronger exfoliants can have on sensitive skin (like mine and plenty of my facial clients). Baby soft skin minus the irritation? Yes, please! That being said I am always on the hunt for more great products with fruit enzyme power. Enter my newest obsession: Kaelen Harwell products. I discovered this lovely Esthetician created, non-toxic, vegan, cruelty free, sustainably packaged, made in the U.S.A, organic and wild-crafted, results driven skin care line at Indie Beauty Expo LA for the 1st time.

    Funny story… I actually saw Kaeleen while enjoying some of the lectures as she was sitting slightly in front of me a few chairs over and I thought, “damn, she has seriously lovely glowing skin”, having zero idea who she was at the time. 30 minutes later I am in Makeup Artist and Esthetician Utopia exploring all the amazing Indie Beauty booths and listening to a lovely gal tell me about the Kaelen Harwell Rejuvenating Pineapple Papaya Enzyme Masque when none other than the glowing gal I saw before walks over and is Kaelen. Ok sold, gimme that masque, gorgeous girl! They were both so sweet and full of information I seriously wanted the whole line, and still do, but I only resisted because I had given myself a 1 product limit from each line to try as much magic as possible.

    So back to the Rejuventating Pineapple Papaya Enzyme Masque- it is lovely! I am wearing it as I type this and loving every minute knowing how nice I’ll be glowing once I remove it. It is a powder or masque with not only fruit enzyme but also kaolin clay for a double dose of skin tightening love for your pores.

    You simply mix ½ tsp with a bit of liquid of your choice (I like using a rose hydrosol or coconut water personally) to form a thin paste and apply with a facial brush or your fingers to freshly cleansed skin. Leave it on for 10-15 minutes, remove thoroughly, pat dry, try to stop petting your now baby soft face and carry on with your regular serum/lotion/oil/cream routine. I use this masque twice a week or anytime my skin is feeling a little dull or dry.

Success! Feel free to continue shopping or head to your cart .
