I am currently in Asheville, North Carolina, escaping Irma and all her tropical madness. The storm is hitting Charleston today, and we are very thankful that Irma is not directly hitting our dear city, and we are instead getting hit with a storm surge. I am praying for all affected by Irma and Harvey, and looking to help however I can. For now, I will be staying safe and mindful as I travel back to Charleston this week.

A few weeks ago, I received a few beautiful products from the ladies of LeahLani. The products I was sent to review are entirely natural and designed with care for sensitive skin. I am elated to report that I had no trouble adjusting to their products and can use them interchangeably with my skincare basics without any irritation or discomfort.
LeahLani is a Hawaiian based natural skincare company founded with spirit. The beautiful founder, Leah has a personal history with acne, which lead her to pursue studying at a holistic esthetician school. Her experience with skincare and passion for the holistic approach has produced the beautiful world of LeahLani. The products are handcrafted and each smell like floral glory. The ingredients are a fusion of the most powerful botanicals and Hawaiian nectars that produce stunning results on diverse complexions.
Not only is the story of the brand sacred, but every interaction whether through Instagram or email with the team has been lovely. LeahLani is all good vibes, positive energy and passion for their mission. Now onward to my thoughts on the products! Scroll away beauties!
Most Like to Purchase again: Bless Beauty Balm
Smells like paradise and melts in your skin like a loving kiss. To enhance the results of its soothing nature, add a drop of your favorite brightening serum. The downfall of this product is the price. I use other balms that last longer and are more affordable. It is a nice addition to your moisturizing toolkit but I would not say one can survive on that alone.
Best bang for your buck: Kalima Cleansing Powder
I love the Kalima Cleansing Powder. I typically use a very delicate face wash, that I can rely on in whatever condition my skin is in. Kalima is a combination of a sensitive care face wash and a mild exfoliator. It is a great product to have in your complexion pantry when your skin is craving a deep clean. It also smells like chocolate, which makes the process even more decadent. I don’t use it every day, because it is a bit of a ritual. To use: Rinse your face with warm water, drop some powder in your hand and add a few drops of water to mix. Be sure not to get the contents of your jar wet!
Most fun: Meli Glow
Caveat : Although the Meli Glow mask smells like a bowl of tropical fruit, tastes delicious if it slides down your face, and is an all around fun experience- I do not see strong results from the mask. That certainly doesn’t define the effective nature or valuable properties of the mask- the ingredients are stellar in strength. In purchasing a mask, I generally want a specific result from it, and unfortunately my skin was not extraordinarily glow-y from the use of this product.
It is truly a blessing to collaborate with artisans like LeahLani and I am grateful for the opportunity to play, test and discover through the process of reviewing.
Thank you to the lovely team at LeahLani!
