Recently I checked out some other aromatherapy lines to see what they're up to, I LOVE the smells! I'm seeing a tendency to list fragrances as "essential oil blend", rather than the individual oils. As a maker, I understand not wanting to share industry secrets, but as a licensed esthetician, I'm going to need that full ingredient list, please and thank you!
My skin care philosophy has always been use what you want, know what you're using, and why. People have sensitivities to a wide spectrum of both natural and synthetic ingredients and it's my job as an empathic skin care professional to ask questions, communicate and use intuition to avoid unnecessary challenges. It's important for people to be fully informed about what is going on their skin, it is our largest organ and one of our most useful detoxifying agents.
I can take care of your skin using only our organically preserved products, this does not mean they are 100% organic (though many of the ingredients are) we are preserving the product with flower and plant extracts rather than synthetic chemicals.
In other products containing water we use a small amount of other preservatives that rate low to moderate health hazard because we've determined exposing you to bacteria in those products would be worse for you. Use what you want, know what you're using, and why.
We love coconut oil too, but if you have oily skin or blackheads, don't put it on your face!
If you have just the right ingredients:
- fine skin texture
- coarse hair
- excess oil
your are genetically primed for ingrown hairs. Your beard alone can cause additional breakouts. Coconut oil can make your clogged pores and blackheads worse.
What makes good beard oil?
It works great on your hair, is good for your skin and is unscented or uses only 100% essential oils to create fragrance.
Finding an oil that works for you.
It's hard enough to find oils that both work well and smell good, if you look for ingredients that will benefit your beard and skin type, your face will thank you.

Happy bearding, Friends!

Anything else we should know about?
Did you know my middle sister Karen actually suggested I become an esthetician? She should know, I've been poking at her for over 3 decades now.
My youngest sister Carolyn recently purchased some RIDES Rêve products for a bearded friend and had some questions for me...
Q: What's the use for the leave in conditioner?
A: He can spray it in his beard, on head hair for conditioning, great for dry El Paso! Beard oil use sparingly on beard & head hair for continuing. Lip balm also works as unscented beard pomade.
Q: So spray on beard daily?
A: Yes, don't get it in mouth or eyes! He might spray into hands then apply depending on how long his beard is.
Q: Why would he need the oil if he's spraying conditioner daily?
A: Beards are coarse and need as much help as possible! Also the oils have antioxidants to help protect from environmental damage--they help the skin too! IDK that's just what the Beard Champ uses.
Then she suggested I put this on the website. Smart sister. I love you Carolyn!!
