AFTER SUN CLEANSERS

VINTNER'S DAUGHTER ACTIVE RENEWAL CLEANSER
Thoroughly remove sunscreen, makeup and daily build up in one step with this gently foaming 2-in-1 cream cleanser. Staying true to Vintner's Daughter's minimal ethos, this is a multi-step oil and water cleanse in just one product.

MONASTERY ROSE CLEANSING OIL
Sunscreen, sweat and pollution cling to the skin a bit more in summer's sticky heat. Melt off impurities and makeup with Monastery's rich oil cleanser made with rose and hazelnut oils. Both oils are antiseptic and anti-inflammatory, helping to repair sun damaged skin.

LESSE CALMING CLEANSER
This cream-gel cleanser works to instantly soothe hot, irritated skin. The combination of hinoki, rose and tamanu seed restore the skin barrier and deeply hydrate. A must for ultra-sensitive skin.

 

AFTER SUN FACE MASKS

ACTIVIST MĀNUKA HONEY MASK
A cult fave, this healing beauty treatment is especially suited for sunburnt skin. Mānuka honey is extremely hydrating, promotes skin regeneration, repairs cellular damage and calms inflammation. The Mānuka Honey Mask can be used for topical natural treatment of rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, acne, wounds and sunburns. Use as a face mask, skin cleanser and spot treatment. 

LEESE BIOACTIVE MASK
This deeply healing face mask will soothe inflammation and redness with its star ingredient, aloe vera. This active botanical is highly anti-inflammatory and amino acid-rich. It promotes healing and natural collagen production while reducing damage from UV rays. Keep it in the fridge for a refreshing experience. 

 

AFTER SUN ESSENCES, MISTS AND TONERS

VINTNER'S DAUGHTER ACTIVE TREATMENT ESSENCE
This essence is a vanity-worth of products in a single bottle. The hydrating botanicals in this essence are aloe vera, coconut water, apple pectin and lactic acid. In combination, they restore hydration and help protect, balance, soften and smooth sunned skin.

LESSE REGENERATION MIST
The key ingredients in this hydrating mist are aloe vera, gotu kola and rosemary leaf. This bottle is brimming with anti-inflammatories and vitamins to repair the skin barrier throughout hot days. We recommend keeping in your beach bag and spraying often.

RAHUA SCALP AND SKIN TONER
Refresh scalp and skin with this cooling toner made with, you guessed it, healing aloe vera. This healing botanical is paired with calming cucumber fruit and antioxidant rich guayusa for an after sun worthy spray. After applying, massage into scalp to help boost blood circulation and encouraging healthy hair growth.

 

AFTER SUN OILS, BALMS AND SERUMS

CURÙ SKIN AFTER SUN FACE OIL
This oil is an overnight wonder. Repair visible signs of sun damage and relieve the look of redness and dry, peeling skin quickly. Let your skin soak up the ancient reparative benefits of ingredients like Sicilian prickly pear, apricot, borage and wild immortelle.

TATA HARPER SUPERKIND CALMING CRÈME
Apply this crème as the last step in your skincare routine to soothe redness, tackle flare ups and neutralize hyperactivity. We love that the Calming Crème has been awarded the National Eczema Association Seal of Acceptance™ by the National Eczema Association (NEA). This is another must for those with ultra sensitive skin.

Feeling extra crispy? Use as an over night mask and apply liberally before bed. 

MONASTERY ALOE HYALURONIC MOISTURE BOOST SERUM
This gel serum feels ultra-light and gives skin a serious boost in hydration thanks to two molecular weights of hyaluronic acid (famed for holding 1000x its weight in water) suspended in a base of soothing aloe vera. To use, keep serum wet on the face after application and follow with a cream or oil.

 

AFTER SUN BODY LOTIONS, CREAMS AND OILS

LIVING LIBATIONS EVERYBODY LOVES THE SUNSHINE
A must for sun seekers. Harmonize your skin and the sun’s rays with this nourishing serum perfect for sun soaking and for sun-soaked skin. This body oil combines four moisturizing oils with fourteen super sun and skin-loving essential oils. This oil can also be used as a facial oil cleanser at the end of a beach day.

THE CURE SKINCARE BODY WHIP
Feel nourished and moisturized after a day in the sun with this rich formula made from four potent plant oils. The warm chocolate scent of this whip comes from the natural cocoa butter. This product is free of essential oils. 

LEAVES OF TREES ARGAN HAND AND BODY LOTION
Containing high levels of vitamin E, phenols, carotenes (pro-vitamin A), squalene and fatty acids, this argan oil-based lotion is a healing option for a sun burn. Deeply penetrating with a matte finish, this lotion is available in both scented and unscented options.

 

AFTERSUN SKINCARE TOOLS

THE CURE SKINCARE COLD ROLLER TOOL
Relieve the burn with an at-home cryo facial. Pair these ultra cool rollers with a face oil and massage the heat away. Store in the fridge or freezer prior to use.

BAINA FACE CLOTH
After cleansing, cool burned skin down with a cold cloth for a few minutes before continuing your skincare routine. Allow cloth to gently rest over the face.
