Calypso Glow Vegan & Organic Summer Skincare Review!

August 1, 2016

Hi green beauties,

The dog days of summer are upon us, babes. Sometimes a simple tweak of my skincare is just the boost that I need to make me feel fresh and renewed to make it through these hot and humid weeks. Let me introduce you to Calypso Glow, a Caribbean-inspired organic handcrafted skincare line that will give your summer skin the hydration and natural glow that it needs to get through the heat.

Not too long ago, I had the pleasure of meeting Patricia, the gorgeous creator of Calypso Glow skincare. She (very generously!) was open to sending me a few of her products to try out. I wish all of you could see her in person, as you would be completely SOLD on trying out the products. Patricia has the most absolutely stunning, glowing, and youthful skin I ever did see; a perfect representation of how amazing her products truly are!

Handcrafted – Products are handcrafted in small batches by a boutique family-owned lab in St Lucia, and made of fresh, organic ingredients grown by farmers in the West Indies, Caribbean.

Sustainable – Dedicated to supporting agriculture sustainability, and partner with the St. Lucian Agricultural Department’s Coconut Platform.

Responsible – All ingredients are responsibly and ethically sourced in the Caribbean tradition, with fair pay.

Recyclable – Packaging is 100% recyclable including papers, premium, eco clear compostable bags, biodegradable boxes and reusable jars.

I’ve included a Q&A with Patricia below to share some insight on the secrets behind her breathtaking glow:

Q:  What inspired you to start Calypso Glow?
A: I grew up listening to my family talk about Caribbean traditions and lifestyle – I knew I wanted to share this through Calypso Glow, while supporting the economic development of the sustainable farming communities, and businesses, that we work with.
Q: Can you explain skin-loving benefits of coconut and why you decided to build a whole line around this nourishing ingredient?
A: Coconut is extremely effective on dry skin, it is easily absorbed and deeply hydrates without blocking pores. Forms a protective barrier on the skin which prevents moisture loss. Naturally contains vitamin E antioxidants which softens, smooths and promotes healthier, younger looking skin. 
Q: Can you tell us a little about how and where the products/ingredients are made?
A: Our products are handcrafted in small batches by a boutique family-owned lab in St Lucia, and made of fresh, organic ingredients grown by farmers in the West Indies, Caribbean.
Q: What is your #1 skincare secret? 
A: Sleep. It refreshes my mind and my skin and I feel full of energy once I’ve had a good night’s sleep or even a daytime nap. I don’t get enough of those but when I do, ahhh-glorious! If I could add another it would be water with the juice of half a lemon squeezed in.
