True or False: The more letters in an ingredient, the better it works.
Most people didn’t earn a chemistry degree, so why should we have to pick apart our labels to understand what the heck we’re putting in our bodies and on our skin? While long, confusing ingredients may sound scientific, they don’t necessarily mean the product works better – often it’s just a cover up for nasty stuff we’d never use if we knew what it was.
Pai is an organic skincare company that is all about the truth – using ingredients like “macadamia”, “rose” and “oil”…aka awesome stuff you have always loved from nature. Perfect for sensitive and allergy-prone skin, Pai uses only natural, preservative free ingredients that are completely vegan with the exception of lip balm. Pai products are never tested on animals.
I have had the pleasure of using two of Pai’s moisturizing products – Macadamia & Rose Dry Skin Cream and Avocado & Jojoba Hydrating Day Cream. The Avocado & Jojoba day cream has a light but nutty scent with a little extra zing of jasmine. The texture is light to medium, and it absorbs quickly and provides a smooth, non-shiny base for makeup, which can be applied immediately after moisturizing. In addition to being a great daytime moisturizer, it improves skin suppleness and reduces open pores. The Avocado & Jojoba Cream can be applied multiple times daily, whenever you need a moisture refresher.
The Macadamia & Rose Dry Skin Cream is a moisture-charged hydration boost for those days when your skin is acting up and drying out. Similar to the Avocado & Jojoba Cream, it has a warm, light, nutty scent with ever so subtle floral notes, of course 100% natural fragrance. I’ve been using this as a nighttime facial cream, and also on other dry areas like elbows and arms. It’s a little bit on the thick side, so I recommend using it when you’re not going to be wearing makeup – or are looking for a super dewy summer look.
Since Pai products don’t contain preservatives, I keep them in the fridge to make sure they stay fresh. It’s not a necessity but I find that they’re extra soothing at a cooler temperature, which is really refreshing and relaxing. In addition to moisturizers, Pai also has an full range of natural products, including body lotions, cleansers, eye cream, and most recently released – Rosehip BioRegenerate Fruit & Seed Oil Blend, which uses Vitamin A converting Rosehip oil to reduce scars, stretch marks, fine lines, and sun damage.
Pai has great products, but it also has great giveaways. All Pai Facebook Fans are elligible for product giveaways, happening once a day until the end of this week!
