Have you ever been gifted or purchased a product bundle before? Perhaps they might seem a little unnecessary or excessive to you. For some people, a bundle just seems like too much. Who needs all this stuff? However, usually what happens is that you end up buying all (or most) of the products that were in the bundle to begin with, only you just end up buying them from different brands or at different times. If you don’t think of yourself as a product bundle fan, let us take a minute to show you all the ways that product bundles rock. You just might find yourself to be a convert by the end of the list.
Blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, pustules, blemishes- what is up with all the different names we have for zits? Are there really that many different kinds? And how do you know which one(s) you have? Also, do different kinds require different care? All of these questions are totally normal and we’re here to answer them for good! Some words are used for everything, while others actually do refer to one specific kind of “zit”. But first: why is it called a blackhead?
In a winter wonderland, smells of pine, cinnamon, clove, orange and fresh, crisp air abound. These smells are part of what we all associate with this magical time of the year just like we associate smells of fresh grass, rain and blooming flowers with spring and smells of citrus with the summer. These smells bring up memories and create new ones. They come from nature, or the inside of our homes. And you can actually merge the two worlds of outside and inside with a simple product that holds the natural aromas of winter: essential oils. Be they from trees, roots, bark, flowers or other plant material, here are three of the best winter themed essential oils:
When it comes to men, sometimes they get the value of private label skincare products, and sometimes they don’t. One man can have a daily grooming routine complete with his favorite skincare product, while another can barely muster the desire to apply some chapstick. Though culturally it’s more accepted for women to pay attention to the health of their skin, the reality is that men need good skincare too! All of us could use some extra care and protection when it comes to our skin and the aging process. We don’t all have to use the same products or like the same scents, but all of us benefit from regular use of high integrity private label skincare products. Here’s what we recommend for the men folk:
Do you use a body scrub? What’s it made out of? Is it thick and hydrating, or extra scrubby and perfect for when you really need a good scrub down? And perhaps most important of all, what does it smell like? See the thing is, when it comes to private label body care products, they either smell terribly artificial, or really really good; it can be hard to find a middle ground. Thankfully, there are products that exist that don’t use strong artificial smells but instead utilize the clear, pure and even beneficial for your skin aromas of essential oils. There are many to choose from, from individual flavors featuring a single oil to a blend that utilizes the various notes of multiple essential oils. While we like the whole array of oils, we will admit that we do have a favorite blend to use in body scrubs.
Hello, 2017! It’s a new year and many of us like to look at it like it’s a fresh start. Stopped working out last year? Start again now, the slate’s clean! Want to lose five pounds? Start eating clean! Feel like you’re falling behind in life and need to get ahead? Start setting goals and checking off your most important tasks. We could go on and on about all the different ways to start the new year off right, but we’ll keep it to what’s most relevant and exciting for us: private label skincare. In this brand spankin’ new year, you can have the best skin of your life. Here are two resolutions to help you get there:
Vitamin C is a private label skincare powerhouse that works for young and aging skin alike. It helps to protect against and repair the negative effects of photo aging, which is something we all need to be aware of. Why? Because the causes are everywhere! Pollution, sunlight and even harsh and extreme weather all contribute to photo aging which manifests itself in the skin as fine lines, collagen loss and sagging. Vitamin C combats all of that by protecting against the free radicals generated by exposure to the various sources of photo aging, and by increasing the skinâ€™s production of collagen. You can find vitamin C in your private label skincare in a number of different forms, and basically all of them come from plants. Here are some of the best:
When it comes to hydrating and plumping up your skin, one of the best private label skincare ingredients you could possibly use is Hyaluronic Acid. Not only does it attract water to itself from the environment, it also can hold up to 1000x its own weight in water! That means that, when used in your private label skincare products, all that moisture gets held in your skin which translates into glowing, plump and super soft skin. Sounds simple enough, right? Just use Hyaluronic Acid and you’re good to go- right? Unfortunately, it’s a little more complicated than that. See, there are two different types of Hyaluronic Acid available for use in private label skincare: one that is plant based and one that is not. And for better or worse, the only one you should be using on your skin every day is the one that comes from plants. Here’s why:
In a busy world where time is of the essence and it always feels like there’s never enough of it, anything that can do multiple things you need at once is extremely valuable. And this definitely applies to your skincare regimen. A lengthy routine isn’t necessarily the most conducive to success and consistency. In this case, simple is better, and one of the ways to make your private label skincare routine simpler is to use products that do multiple things at once. Wash and exfoliate, moisturize and tone, soothe and youthen- here are a few of the easiest to use multi use products for your skincare routine:
Daily facial cleansing has long been considered to be one of the basic fundamental requirements for having clear and happy skin. And yet so many people still struggle with their skin despite washing religiously every day. What gives? While this might come as a surprise, for some people using a detergent or even natural soap based facial cleanser proves to be the opposite of beneficial for their skincare goals. This makes it difficult for people who still enjoy the daily ritual of washing their face, or if they are someone who wears makeup and wants to effectively wash it off at the end of the day. But there is a solution, and it might not be what you’d expect.
It’s that time of year again when everyone starts getting sick! School children, college students and anyone working around a lot of other people are especially affected, and boy does it suck! While there are lots of things you can do and preventative measures you can take to minimize your chances of getting sick, one of the more fun options is to utilize the Legendary Blend of Thieves. It smells fantastic, can be used in a myriad of ways, has a fun story to back it up and is an easy way to get essential oils into your life regularly. What’s not to love?
It’s the holiday season, and while it’s always fun to get, let’s not forget to give! Many people find this to be the perfect time for giving gifts to loved ones and friends, regardless of the holidays you choose to celebrate. The holiday season often provides people with an excuse or a reminder to connect with those they love and even make the world a little bit better by reaching out to those less fortunate. While this is great and wonderful, what about the rest of the year? Should we only be giving back once a year? Here at RainShadow Labs we feel fortunate to have so much abundance and support from our customers and team, and as a result we try to give back to our community on the regular.
Here at RainShadow Labs, we’re all about having the best day ever. Whether it’s doing our best to serve you and making your private label skincare needs and dreams come true, coming up with new and exciting formulas, or using our own creations on ourselves, we like to think we’ve gotten pretty good at making our days the best ever with our skincare products. And while it’s by no means a stand in for other things like human connection and doing the things you love, here are two skincare themed things we’ve found to be pretty effective at helping us have the best day ever.
