  • My skin is definitely on the combination/oily side, however when I’m going through a major breakout I tend to bump up the glycolic acid and other powerful acne-fighting yet unfortunately drying ingredients.

And others I’ve listed, I would not personally use for my skin type as they be a bit heavy on my sensitive combo skin.

    Pangea’s Organics Facial Cream Dry & Sensitive Skin

    The Rose Otto Essential Oil in this facial cream is calming and deeply nourishing for all skin types, even sensitive & mature. Argan Oil is all the rave right now, and for good reason, it's glow inducing benefits with antioxidants like Vitamins A + E and complexion-loving omega-6 fatty acids and Linoleic Acid make it worthy in a woman's beauty wardrobe.

  • Hey Sara! Tell us a little about yourself & your journey.

    Hi there! I’m a photographer, blogger, and interior decorator based in Los Angeles. From New York originally, I moved to California for college and never left! I live here with my partner, Eddie, in our lil two bedroom cottage I fondly call “The Hobbit House.” A few of my passions include plants, cozy interiors, sustainability, and travel - all things I discuss on my Instagram and lifestyle blog, Black & Blooms. I’ve been a creator for 4 years now, and just went full time last November. This first year of being self-employed has been quite the adventure!

    Working from home I’ve found that establishing a daily routine helps me stay motivated. Enjoying slow mornings before starting to work, taking lunch breaks, getting some fresh air and a change of scenery when I’m feeling stuck. I’m taking everything day by day and trying to give myself a bit of grace when some days aren’t as productive as others during this time. Read more
