“I have tried many, many, many retinol products. Most of them caused redness, the worst caused peeling, and the best I could get was little to no benefit. I had nearly given up hope until I tried the Sea Retinal...my skin is glowy and my skin tone is even. I have also noticed that my skin is softer and generally less reactive. Amazing!!!"

Kristin R.

"I ordered one on the day it came out. Then a couple weeks later, ordered another because I was already freaking out that something so good would sell out immediately and take a while to restock. It's the best all-around cleanser I've used."

Olympia T.

"Wow. You weren't kidding...I feel like some hyperpigmentation right below my eyes is already fading and my neck is firmer. These are two problem areas that I'd largely given up on, so I'm pretty shocked to see a difference. It feels so light and hydrating, too."

Andrea F.

"Whoa. This is not your usual bath product. I was skeptical about how a sea soak could detoxify, until I found myself sweating in the tub and then feeling deeply relaxed, yet rejuvenated, afterwards. Whatever magic is happening here, I’ll take it."

Jill R.

"The difference in my skin from April 2018 to now must be seen to be believed. Having never used oil on my face I wasn't sure what to expect with Dara's Oil, but I wouldn't return to a cream moisturizer for anything. This oil is light, penetrating, and not greasy."

Jill

"In all honesty, this serum has changed my COVID nurse skin. It instantly rehydrates, plumps tissue, decreases redness, increases elasticity, and leaves a subtle glow...friends and co-workers have positively commented on the change in my skin."

Karen W.

"I tried a lot of natural shampoo and finally found my holy grail. Bonus points, the scent of this shampoo is divine, so much so it enriches my shampooing experience."

Claire

"I hadn't gotten a good night's sleep in over two weeks and was at my wits' end. I kept waking up after 4-5 hours and unable to get back to sleep. Last night I took the sleep tonic and stress tonic with water before bed. I slept deeply and awoke feeling refreshed and full of energy!"

How to air-dry your hair: our top tips

Ah, the air-dry. It sounds so easy, so carefree, so insouciant — yet the sheer unpredictability of the process from one air-dry to another can be so maddening. Still, giving hair a break from hot tools is always a good...
