How To Get "Unready" With Essential Oils

A night out can mean dancing till dawn or swooning over candlelight. Getting ready typically involves mascara, lipstick and maybe a little blush. Hours are spent picking out what to wear and trying different hairstyles. The beginning of a night out is filled with expectations but it’s the end of the night that may have a lasting effect.  

After a night on the town, you may feel tempted to crash into bed but taking a few extra minutes to get “unready” will keep your skin healthy and fresh. Instead of using harsh chemicals to cleanse your skin, we’ve created a step-by-step guide to getting “unready” with essential oils.

    Hi Sarah! The cleansing facial wipes and face wash both have a 1 week shelf life and refrigeration is recommended. Storing the moisturizer in the fridge and protecting it from water and contaminants will give it an approximate shelf life of 6 months.
