IT’S the close of another hectic week. Whatever you have lined up for the weekend, it’s always a good idea to find a little time for yourself.
Naturally made products by Lace x Rue might just be what you’re looking for. These no-fuss products are all lovingly made by hand from vegan ingredients simply to make you feel good, while being good to the environment as well.
Lace x Rue founder Krista Pages has a long-standing passion for the spa industry, even moving to Bangkok for a while to study it more thoroughly. Part of her inspirations to incorporate what nature gives freely into her products were her months in France, where lavender just grew abundantly.
Last year, Lace x Rue was born, named after Krista’s cats. The product line is designed to be eco-friendly and cruelty free, so ingredients are biodegradable and of course, not tested on animals. Even the packaging is mostly made out of glass, not plastic.
Starting out with only one product, Krista is steadily growing the Lace x Rue range. Her body scrubs are designed to gently exfoliate, using ingredients like ground coffee beans, sea salt, brown sugar, and honey. They really are almost good enough to eat! Just a couple of palmfuls is enough for the whole body. None of these scrubs are at all harsh, and will leave skin feeling incredibly smooth but not stripped. These body scrubs make skin so silky that I don’t even feel the need to use a body lotion after. The next day, I wake up with skin still feeling baby soft.
An area that is often neglected from scrubbing is our lips. For those of us with dry lips, or if we need to slough off remnants of those budge-proof lipsticks, a gentle lip scrub is recommended. These also contain olive oil, mint, honey, and other antioxidant-rich ingredients straight from nature itself.
For those who love playing up their natural waves or adding volume to hair, check out the bestselling Mermaid Hair Spray. This boosts texture without weighing hair down or making it crunchy, and smells amazing, too.
Despite products being made in small batches, the entire line is still more affordable than most similar products you’d find in the mall. Check out lacexrue.com for more information.
