As a San Francisco native I'm always excited to support local beauty companies. It has taken me a long time to try In Fiore's natural luxury skincare but I'm now a devotee. Founder Julie Elliott only uses wildcrafted and certified organic essential oils, herbal infusions and floral waters for her intoxicating perfumes, body treatments and skincare products.
On a recent visit I went to their Tenderloin studio and got a varied sampling of their beauty collection. Intended for oily skin, the nourishing Pur Face Oil is a light moisturizer I like to use for warm weather. I layer it with Fleur Vibrante Healing Floral Essence to heal acne scars, rashes and sun damage.
A favorite of mine, the Complexe de Fleur Cellular Renewing Complex is a potent serum to use at night. Containing 12 herbal essences to stimulate collagen production and cellular turnover, the silky fluid is dubbed "liquid gold" by In Fiore fans. Whenever I use this I always see a youthful glow the next morning.
I was so pleased with their products I decided to get a few more items. The soothing Calme Face Oil is terrific for toning down redness and general skin irritations. Summers in Seattle are rather brutal as there is no cloud cover, so I've been using the Soleil Fleur Before Sun Treatment religiously for extra UV protection. To counteract hyperpigmentation I've also been dabbing the Lucense Illuminating Floral Extract before bedtime.
