5 Detroit Beauty Products

Spa Products

I have always struggled with my skin 365 days a year but especially during the colder months. I can never find the right combination of products that are going to leave my skin moisturized and glowing. In this post I really wanted  to showcase some of my go to beauty products made right here in Detroit.


Detroit Rose Ritual

Aphrodite Face Oil | I use this face oil every morning and evening to lock in moisture. This blend of botanical oils is rich in vitamins A, C and E to improve skin’s plumpness, help fight the appearance of wrinkles, redness, and pores for a clear, glowing complexion. 

Pro Tip | For an extra boost of glow and moisture during the winter months mix Aphrodite oil with Alchemy Hennas Komenuka grains. Work into your skin, avoiding eye areas for a minute. Rinse off and follow with moisturizer. This scrub will leave your skin feeling softer than a babies bum. The exfoliation works off dead skin while allowing the oil to absorb deep below the skin. I recommend doing this 2 times a week allowing your skin to have breaks.

Alchemy Henna

Komenuka | is the word for rice bran, a super nutrient rich skin care food. Combined with rice bran flour and essential oils to boost the interaction between your skin and the interior organs that support luminous skin, our Komenuka Cleansing Grains are super versatile.

Anointing Oil | put a few drops of this deep comforting scent on your palms and rub your hands together. Lift your palms and take a deep breath. You'll feel the scent warm every part of your body, a rush of relaxation and calm.

Ilera Apothecary

Raw Coconut Oil | This coconut oil can be used as a face mask, body oil. massage oil, or added to a tub of warm water for a moisturizing experience. For best results, apply to freshly cleansed skin. Massage all over body, concentrating on dry areas like elbows, knees and feet. Reapply as needed. 

Rose Toner | Its a refreshing, hydrating mist formulated with fragrant herbs for an instant burst of refreshment and hydration. Just spray on dehydrated, tight and uncomfortable skin, day or night - works well over and under makeup, as well as on hair.
