Spring has sprung…
And nothing makes us more excited than layering fragrant products made from actual flowers to promote peace and ease in the evening. It just seems to blend with the lighter, more enlivened Springtime air. While layering fragrance at night is understandably not for everyone, it’s a custom that many including Cleopatra practice. These subtle, plant-based fragrances will be sure to serve more as a lulling background number rather than commanding center attention so you can effortlessly drift off to sleep.
The NuFace LED Treatment is an attachment that can be switched out with the microcurrent head. It is designed to help with fine lines and wrinkles. The technology uses pulsing red light therapy which kickstarts healing, is scientifically shown to increase collagen and elastin production, and reduce inflammation. This technology is used in cosmetic practices to treat acne scars, and promote faster healing after procedures like vampire facials and microneedling. While the NuFace LED treatment is in theory less intensive than the machines at the doctor’s office, it is a wonderful at-home treatment because you can do it daily so the results are stacked.
We prefer doing this treatment immediately after showering, and prior to applying any serums. For those who already have the NuFace microcurrent handheld, there is also an option to just purchase the LED treatment attachment.

Fragrance: Sigil Anima Mundi
Sigil is known for creating complex and evolved fragrances from natural materials that don’t have traditional scent profiles. Anima Mundi is the closest they come to a floral, and this study on florals includes jasmine, tuberose, and rose that feel traditional on first spray, then unwind into something interesting and unique. The profile works beautifully with the Corpus Third Rose deodorant. The cool down of this natural perfume ensures that while the opening feels like an unabashed loved of florals, you’ll go to bed with just hints of creamy florals that will delight and soothe.
A special note: Sigil recently announced their closure. Predictably, many are stocking up on their perfumes as collectables. So if you want any Sigil, you have to strike now.
