Okay, listen up ladies – Violets Are Blue skin care is blowing me away! The line was created by breast cancer survivor, Cynthia Besteman, who couldn’t use regular skin care when she was going through treatment. So, she decided to create a luxurious treatment safe skin line, which is truly outstanding.
First off – the packaging is just lovely, which Cynthia explained, came about because when she was going through treatment, the last thing she wanted to see was another bright pink ribbon or container. This is why the whole line and the bottles are violet and white.
The formulations themselves are stunning – nourishing, high quality, skin-loving ingredients with the gentle scent of pure lavender. Cynthia wanted lavender for its soothing and anti-bacterial qualities.
But, the cherry on the top of Violets Are Blue skin care is that Cynthia created the Beloved Line. This is a kit, which she created for women in treatment, and to be gifted to them on their first day of treatment. What an amazing idea, right? Cancer patients tend to put themselves last, and yet this is the exact time that they need to put themselves and their self-care first. A step in this direction is to gift them with a Beloved kit to make them feel beautiful, nurtured and loved.
You can either buy any of the gorgeous products from her signature line (and 10% of the profits of the sale go toward her being able to donate Beloved kits to the Mount Sinai Dubin Breast Center in NYC), and/or you can purchase a Beloved Kit for someone you know who might be going through treatment. Either way – win/win!
