The Blue Cocoon has been one of the foundational pillars in alleviating and managing sensitivity in my moody, previously imbalanced acne prone skin.
Seeing such massive changes through one external product motivated me to make more holistic lifestyle changes which led to even more beautifully dramatic results.
365 days- summer or winter. I’m never without. No longer imbalanced, no longer severely acne prone. A little goes a long way and this seemingly tiny jar lasts me close to a year.
This is what I use as a primer under makeup and it just glides on and stays beautifully hydrated through the night.
I also use the tiniest bit as a thin buffer to set up my sensitive skin for success under retinol and the results are beautiful.
This is a favourite in our house whenever someone has any skin upsets like mosquito bites or seasonal allergic rashes.
Also doubles up as a soothing salve for post laser skin recovery, while using acid exfoliants or retinoids and I partake in all three.
The superhero of my skincare routine, if our organic ahimsa peace silk was a moisturiser it would be The Blue Cocoon.
Made to order to your unique body, Soleste is buttery soft..from Bar to Boudoir
This is the most decadent silk blouse you’ll ever wear, handcrafted in our marshmallowy- velvety soft- sublime silk for an ultra sensorial experience, like the faintest caress of a feather against the skin.
Soleste is incredibly versatile and can be styled effortlessly for practically any occasion- formal or social.
Whether you stay in or step out for a sojourn, Soleste pairs well with our Obsidian Grey Runa Resort Pants, Siro Silk Shorts and looks equally beautiful tucked into your favourite pair of pants or denims.
The perfect daytime serum and quiet hard worker of my morning routine.
This is what I use under SPF instead of a moisturiser because my skin hates moisturisers under SPF (I break out) but goes angry and tight when I skip it. The Pro Resilience Serum by Sachi Skin is the only thing my sensitive skin not only tolerates, but LOVES under SPF.
Watery light texture straight out of dreams, endless benefits in a single bottle.
Results compound over time. Think strengthening and repairing of your skin barrier, reduced redness + sensitivity under spf and makeup and evened, brightened, hydrated skin tone. Even the occasional breakout heals faster. So comforting I put it on my eyelids and lips too!
I like many Josh Rosebrook products but the Daily Acid Toner deserves a special mention. This is the turbo booster that I use 1-2 x per week, in conjunction with my retinoid.
As gentle as it is powerful, it is equal parts hydrating and exfoliating. Don’t expect this to leave your skin feeling squeaky bare as most exfoliants do. This will gently exfoliate any loose dead skin cells and leave your skin barrier plump, hydrated and beautifully smooth. This is pretty much the only AHA my skin likes and I only need it 1-2 times per week. It’s so gentle and effective, I can safely use it in conjunction with my retinoid.
The days I use this, my face is buttery soft and glows extra all day. Fades residual acne marks 4 x faster and facilitates deeper penetration + absorption of the rest of my skincare.
Even though it’s not the traditional way to use it, if I feel the onset of a new pimple, I dab a tiny amount of the DAT on it before bed. By morning it is smaller or sometimes even practically gone.
Go slow and see how many times to use per week. Build up to daily usage, if needed.

While I love and use many of Kirsten's products (hi Cream Foundation & Impossible Mascara!) her refillable, organic lipsticks are especially dreamy and honestly sublime as tokens of love.
Buttery smooth formula, long wearing moisture (mine stays easily for 10-12 hours) yet non greasy and gorgeous colours. The outer case is sexy, refillable and intended to serve you for life with easily available refills.
