New York Times: A SEASONS ROUNDUP OF BEAUTY CHOICES
BY CHARLOTTE ST LOUIS
“In the breathless, never-satiated world of beauty, every season brings new enthusiasms. Here are some must-haves for autumn that fall squarely into the category of More Than Just a Passing Fancy. Without intending to limit myself to one continent, I ended up choosing nothing but European imports that struck me as distinctive, most of which have only recently become available here.”
MILK BY [COMFORT ZONE] Most cleansers leave my forever-dry face even drier, but not this one: cleansing milk from Italy made by [comfort zone], an eco-friendly spa brand. The cleanser — part of the company’s Sacred Nature collection, which features shea butter and buriti oil (from a palm tree called the moriche) — has the consistency of very thick cream, the type I imagine being left by deliverymen on doorsteps. A dollop goes a long way, so the price isn’t as steep as it would seem. This cleansing milk doesn’t strip away every last remnant of oil, and that’s a good thing. Squeaky-clean is great for countertops, not skin.
Instead, think of it as your grandmother’s cold cream updated to fall in line with the imperatives of our age: organic (meets Ecocert standards), recyclable packaging and luxurious feel. Come winter, when the heat is on and skin falls to a new low of dryness, try the Sacred Nature mask, which left my skin dewy.
Yet, like a bar that doesn’t have a sign on its door, the Web site for [comfort zone] doesn’t sell its products, so they can be hard to find. The brand is in 169 spas nationwide, including the one at the Westin New York at Times Square. Otherwise, a day spa called the Blue Giraffe in Ashland, Ore., sells [comfort zone] at store.bluegiraffespa.com.
