July 2007, saw the launch of Alexandra’s Jewels. Based out of New Hampshire, this all-natural skincare line was developed out of concern for what harmful ingredients might be going into our beauty products.
Alexandra Wolf is the woman behind the brand “The use of parabens and other common chemicals in cosmetics are now giving evidence that they cause cancer, especially Breast Cancer. I was convinced all the more that making my skincare line of products earth sustainable was the path for me.”
Two years were spent with formulators developing these specialty skincare products. Each ‘Jewel’ is free of parabens, polypropylene, petroleum jelly and fragrance, and the packaging is recyclable too. No cardboard boxes are used but the sweetest little silver bags to envelope the jewelesque casings.
Alexandra’s Jewels is broken up into two categories – Lip Jewels and Body Jewels. I sampled three products from these collections:
Butter Me Beautiful
This whipped cream is full of antioxidants and contains Shea Butter, Organic Jojoba Oil, and Moringa Oil. Light and fluffy, this product soaked into my skin immediately and left it smooth and soft, without a trace of greasiness.
Sugar Lips Polish
Brown Sugar, Moringa Oil, Shea Butter and Vitamins A, C and Calcium assist to help revive and restore lips. I had to stop myself licking my lips. The aroma from the brown sugar was delicious!
Made with Shea Butter and Tamanu Oil this lip treatment can be applied before bed or during the day to fight chapped lips. I have been using this for the past couple of nights and have woken up to kissably soft lips.
