Skincare 101: Lanima Skin

We’re always on the hunt for incredible, and environmentally friendly beauty products here at the office. We’re fighting gravity one great face mask at a time.¬†Which is why we’re thrilled to tell you all about LANIMA.

Lanima Skin was created by Debbi Symes, with a focus on vegan, environmentally soluble products, which give back to the local community. These beauty products come in a powder form, and their presentation is worthy of Saks Fifth Avenue counters.

We tried the mini collection, which you probably saw on our PPLA IG, opening the box itself was such a dream. The mini collection supports local women working in Rwanda. Every order of the mini collection comes with a conscious clutch. What does that mean? Well Debbi has paired up with Aspire Rwanda which aids women in a post genocide society in harnessing entrepreneurial skills, and life goals. The Tujumbere Cooperative supports over 130 women in Kigali. Hand crafted, with the ability to see who made your individual order, is a priceless gift in today’s tech filled society. Of course, the real gift is being able to give back to those who need it, but the human connection is undeniable.

Okay, so yes you’re supporting women. But the products themselves work like a dream! We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE (incase you didn’t catch on the first time) the refining clay mask, which comes in the mini set. The mask is Lanima’s clay mask with activated coconut, charcoal, and turmeric. The set comes with a gorgeous brush to apply your skincare whose bristles feel like a dream. You can use your hands to apply the water, but we love using the scooped out coconut shell that comes with the collection. It takes a bit of getting used to, as it’s not everyday you mix your own mask or cleanser, but it’s worth it. It left our skin feeling baby smooth, and glowing. The mini collection also includes Lanima’s luminous face oil, made from Camellia Seed and Bulgarian Rose. It’s the perfect size to pop in your purse for hydration on the go, or add it to your travel bag like we did. Best of all, all Lanima products are free from filler, synthetic preservatives, and gmo’s.
