Conscious Skincare: With Love By Kate


While we’re thinking Valentine’s Day, I have to tell you about With Love by Kate. Many of you already know Kate Novack, she was a beloved yoga teacher at Riverdog and after the studio closed, she found her way to the Red Barn in Lyme. But yoga isn’t her only gig. Since 2006 she’s been quietly mixing organic ingredients into powerful skincare potions and has launched With Love by Kate. Trained in Ayurveda and aromatherapy, Kate’s products are geared to sensitive aging skin (me!). They cover the gamut of care from Vitamin C facial masks to daily moisturizers and lip balm. I’ve been slathering the deliciously scented lemongrass creme all over my super-dry, hyper-sensitive face. The Jasmine Love Butter is the perfect foil to dry heat parched legs. And the Purity Bright.Eyes adds a bit of glow to my normally exhausted appearing eyeballs. With ingredients like Argan oil, aloe vera leaf, avocado oil, caffeine powder, grapefruit seed extract (and many more), this stuff seems good enough to eat. If you’re concerned about the gunk you’re putting on your skin (it is the largest organ after all) and looking for a solution that is organic, non-gmo, sans toxic ingredients, AND local, you’ve found it here. Find With Love By Kate at Whole Foods, Glastonbury, and locally at Indigo Niantic. Purchase online and take 20% off with code ELIST through 2/14/16.

p.s. The Vitamin C clay mask is a pale pink, perfect for Valentine’s Day!
