Aloha, Mermaid! This weekend provides an excellent chance to escape the final stretch on winter to enjoy a moment in the sun. Close your eyes, imagine that you are flying 4 000 kilometres as the crow flies from the coast of California over a vast ocean until you find yourself on a white sand beach enjoying translucent waters and the heat of the tropics. The Big Island, or the Island of Hawaii, and its archipelago in the middle of the Pacific Ocean contain rich resources in the form of rain forests, volcanoes, snow, waterfalls and beaches. It is no wonder that the treasure chest of Mother Nature also produces fascinating, trendy natural cosmetics.

We fell head over heels in love with our brand-new Leahlani line on the test product round as we selected brands for Jolie Beauty. The brand has been trending in the United States already for some time. However, a year ago, Leahlani was undergoing a major packaging reform as products were finalised for the EU market. At the same time, product formulas were refined as Leahlani’s product development progressed. This is why the brand has not been launched at Jolie until now. From the very first touch, Leahlani has that authentic magic that makes organic makeup a lifestyle and, at best, the most fun entertainment. Leahlani captivated the test group with its tropical fragrances, its exotic and potent ingredients from volcanic soil and its playful understanding of detail. The team was collectively infatuated with the products and enjoyed weeks of pure, shared joy – intoxicating, but oh-so-healthy hula hula.

Leahlani’s Product Highlights

Leahlani’s line includes lovely elixirs, serums and toners, not to mention stunning exfoliating skin cleaning products and masks. The line also includes a sunset-coloured balm, which has already become the go-to product not only among Hawaiians, but also the people of a certain small City of Angels. With its sweet orange blossom scent, Leahlani Bless Beauty Balm is a multipurpose beauty balm that can be used as a moisturizer or a makeup remover. It strengthens and protects the complexion and helps to reduce inflammation. The warmth of the skin melts the balm into an oil, leaving the skin feeling silky. Bless Balm is free of water, wax and emulsifiers, ensuring its ability to nurture the skin with 100% pure and potent ingredients. Luscious, organic plant butters and cold-pressed plant oils create an unparalleled softness of the skin. If necessary, you can complete your skin cleansing ritual with Leahlani Honey Love or Kalima.

As heavy users of toners, the Jolie team have already taken to the Leahlani toners, of which Bohemian Ruby is formulated for dry and delicate skin and Citrus and Citrine for all other skin types. The toners contain aloe vera, floral hydrosols and Hawaiian sea silt ferment, which soothe, nourish and balance the skin. Each bottle of Bohemian Ruby contains a rose quartz, known as the gemstone of selfless love and warmth. The gemstone also mixes the ingredients together so you should shake the bottle before use. The Citrus and Citrine Toner regenerates and revitalizes the skin, giving it a fabulous glow. Citrus and Citrine includes a citrine, known as the gemstone of joy, happiness, wellbeing and the energy of the sun.

Leahlani Champagne Serum

It is difficult to pick out just one favourite among the elixirs and serums. Leahlani Champagne Serum antioxidant serum is a Leahlani cult favourite and the newcomer of the year in Hollywood. The oil serum is a potent cocktail of chardonnay grapeseed oil and antioxidants that work in harmony to restore the natural balance of the complexion. The winner in the Jolie team is Siren Serum, which charms users with its skin-brightening effect and intoxicating fragrance. Siren Serum is a sure pick-me-up in the ice age, so we warmly recommend you to bring it along on your imaginary weekend getaway.

Leahlani products cannot be discussed without mentioning Mermaid Mask. The magical, emerald green texture conceals a potent combination of Hawaiian superfoods that nourish, purify, soften and renew the complexion. The spirulina, chlorella, honey and skin-brightening ethereal oils of this Leahlani bestseller will make the skin glow and give it a new vibrancy. Mermaid Mask helps to reduce inflammation, balances excess sebum production, evens out skin tone and draws moisture to the skin. All skin types can benefit from the diverse nurturing effects of the mask. Mermaid Mask is the only mask that you will ever need, which is why it is the ideal choice to pack along on a long journey, for example.
