For years, I explored options for a more natural way of protecting and supporting my body, my mind, my heart. My skin had changed during pregnancy and we found ourselves fighting eczema and full body rashes because of teething and a number of other variables with our son.
I decided I needed something clean. Something I could trust. So I started making a cream that made sense for us. Natural ingredients and essential oils that together, became powerful combinations. Soon after, I started looking for ingredients that not only solved problems, but also gave me a sense of TRUE self care....You know the kind...The kind that makes you feel like you're truly treating yourself.
We go through our days usually taking care of everyone else and don't think about us until the day is over....I had enough and decided to make my own.
All natural, never ever parabens, NO synthetic fragrances and NO harsh chemicals.
I hope this gives you a sense of relief like it did my family. I hope I have helped you smile and feel like you've been seen.
Thank you for being you and don't forget to take care of you.
My Full Routine
Just a suggestion,
because we are ALL different!
Find YOUR way and share!!
1. FIRST: WASH
Wash off impurities from the skin's surface (face, neck, even chest if you can) Pat dry.
2. SECOND: FACIAL ELIXIR
Shake. Close your eyes. Spray. Allow it to dry just for a moment. Then open. BOOM.
3. THIRD: FACIAL OIL
One full dropper to face and neck. Delivers essential ingredients directly to the skin (face, neck, chest)
4. FOURTH: CREAM/BALM
Hydrate! This step is usually done in the evening, but is used for MANY THINGS.
Don't be afraid! And remember!
A little goes a long way!!
5. FIFTH: EYE CREAM
Fluffy, light, silky, and so whippy! Full of beautiful ingredients leaving your skin feeling so incredibly soft!
This cream is a gorgeous shade of blue green and smells heavenly! A magical sun relief cream, weather barrier for cold temps, night cream, day cream, heel treatment, beard balm, knees, elbows, even an eye make up remover in a pinch, bikini wax relief, lip treatment, etc.
Let me know if you find another one...
The idea behind this cream was to offer an all organic Dream Cream. However, the one ingredient that is different is the 100% certified organic, cold pressed grapeseed oil. A rich army green color with a pungent, earthy smell.
It needed it's own identity, different from the Dream Cream and it reminds me of summer on the island.
Some people love it and some don't, but that's what makes this place so beautiful.
Organic Shea Butter
(base butter in all three creams)
Contains a concentration of natural vitamins and fatty acids to help condition, tone, and calm your skin. Not only does it hydrate and soften, it also has anti inflammatory & healing properties, and it helps promote cell regeneration, which can reduce the appearance of fine lines.
This magical facial spray is such a treat. Perfect for day and night toner (whether you spray directly on your face or use reusable cotton pads to wipe), excellent for post workout, essential afternoon pick me up, or for headaches. The peppermint oil is refreshing and uplifting leaving you with a beautiful cooling effect. Addicting. Oh. And it's the best travel companion.
Facial Elixir Ingredients
This magical facial spray was created to take the place
of my very expensive, impure toner I once used,
and it soon became an all day ritual.
Natural ROSE WATER
ORGANIC WITCH HAZEL
Organic PEPPERMINT ESSENTIAL OIL
100% Therapeutic Grade MYRRH ESSENTIAL OIL
100% Therapeutic Grade LAVENDER ESSENTIAL OIL
Organic ROSEMARY ESSENTIAL OIL
Organic BERGAMOT ESSENTIAL OIL
Organic ORANGE ESSENTIAL OIL
Lightweight and silky. I use this every day as my moisturizer and every night under my Dream Cream. And when you apply directly after the Facial Elixir, it's truly an at home spa experience. It's like the cooling effect from the Elixir is extended with big dose of luxurious nutrient loaded moisturizer. Start your day off right and treat yourself at night.

I’m very particular about my skin care products and routine.
I worked at a tanning salon in college and still struggle with irreversible damage I did over a decade.
When I saw the care and commitment Sarah was putting into her products I was excited to try them.
I was thrilled with the feel, quality and results.
I switched from a company I had been with for the last 10 years to Sostre Self.
My absolute favorites are the facial oil and and eye cream.
Thank you Sarah for sharing your knowledge and beautiful products with all of us!
As someone who struggles with hives, acne and a touch of eczema, I cannot tolerate just any skin care product.
I started to use Sarah’s products during a flare up – within a week, the results were beautiful. Beyond the products working so very well, the texture and scent is absolute luxury. Sarah clearly did her research when creating these products. I highly recommend any of her products for normal and especially for sensitive skin!
