Simple Skin

I don’t know about you, but once upon a time I was the master of the skincare layering technique. About the time the Asian practice of layering at least seven skincare ingredients (sometimes 10!) became popular in the United States, I was already well versed in the art of thin ‘layers’ of primers and serums…

NEW FORMULA: Organic Essential Essence

We are constantly working to upgrade our formulas so that they perform at optimum levels from your first application to the last. The time has come to give the Organic Essential Essence a makeover! If you’ve always been a fan of the original essence, don’t worry! The upgrades make the original formula even better. We’ve…

Organic Essential Body Balm

If necessity is the mother of invention, then our Organic Essential Body Balm is a testament. In a world of moisturizers that either absorb too quickly (due to high water or alcohol content) and leave you dry – or sit on your skin (often due to a high wax, butter or large molecular oil content)…

What’s that smell?

Raise your hand if this has happened to you: You use a deodorant for a reasonable length of time and BAM! All of a sudden it stops working. So you switch brands/strengths and that works for a while and then BAM! It stops working again. Sound familiar? We know. It’s the pits. Two things typically…

When do you need SEVEN VEILS?

We often get inquiries and emails asking what the deal is with Seven Veils. The fault is ours. When we launched Seven Veils Luxury Serum, we were so excited about nailing the perfect balance of ingredients and consistency that we weren’t clear about who would best benefit from it. Since that time we’ve modified the…

It’s so hard to Say Goodbye…

But goodbye we must say,  to a staple that has been part of the Habibi Bath & Body family since its inception. In fact, if we’re being honest, it’s the first product that we really perfected. Oatmeal & Peppermint is going the way of the dinosaur. Here’s why: we’ve evolved. We found a better way…

ACAI for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and you’ve no doubt started to see products with all manner of pink slapped on them for good measure. Every year, we come out in full (read: 100% of sales) support for The Foundation for Living Beauty. We’ve been avid supporters of this organization since we first learned about…

Oh Matcha…

How we love thee! We’ve been counting the ways for years by drinking matcha tea, and recently finding the most effective way to incorporate it into skincare. This fragrant tea leaf has so many benefits for all skin types, but is especially effective on oily and acne prone skin. Matcha is pulverized green tea, made…

Moisturize by Skin Type

Autumn is upon us, and if you haven’t yet, now is a great time to take stock of your skin care needs. Beyond just what you put on your face, the health of your skin below your neck can also be optimized based on skin type. What you use on your body determines how well…

Skincare Between Seasons

We often think of seasons in terms of absolutes; the sweltering heat of Summer verus the biting cold of Winter. But it’s the ‘in between’ seasons, Spring and Autumn, that give us the chance to adapt our skin to the coming conditions and help us straddle each change beautifully and effectively. With Autumn just days…

Skin Health and Hyper-pigmentation

Ahhhh those dreaded spots. If you’re lucky, they’re only a quarter shade darker than your natural skin tone. But if you’re like most of us, hyper-pigmentation can go from dark brown to even black in a matter of days, and take months… sometimes years (yes, years) to get rid of. What you need to know:…

Winter is Coming…

We will not apologize for the Game of Thrones reference. Nope. The changing seasons means its time to modify your skin care routine to keep your face and body in top shape with the coming winter. Cold temperatures can lead to dry or irritated skin. Even if your skin is naturally oily, it can still…
