Skyn Iceland Skincare at Henri Bendel

In many ways, I’m a former beauty junky.  The interest is still there, however, I don’t spend as much time caring for myself as I would like to.  Now that my children are getting older, I’m trying  to remember to give back to myself and rejuvenate – at home and elsewhere.

Last month, I attended an event hosted by Lara of Pretty Connected which focused on slowing down and cooling down with Skyn Iceland at Henri Bendel.  The private event room was transformed into a relaxing space with tranquil beauty treatments and healthy treats.

I first discovered Skyn Iceland during my first pregnancy when I searched for quality products that were paraben-free and natural.  I had the chance to speak with founder Sarah Kugelman about her product inspiration drawn from her travels in Iceland and her dedication to keeping her products completely safe.

I’ve since tested out the above products, and they have added a soothing element to my (typically rushed) at home regime.  The Glacial Cleansing Cloths have been a perfect post spinning class refresher and the Antidote Cooling Daily Lotion feels heavenly and smells divine.  I’ve been spritzing myself  throughout the day with the Arctic Face Mist and I’m able to create a spa-like experience at home with the Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels.

I’ve definitely spent time thinking about the ways in which stress may manifest itself in my body – and I’m working on improving my self care.  I’m glad that I had the chance to meet with the one skincare line specifically formulated to address the damaging effects of stress on the skin.



  1. I prefer products without parabens as well. All of the cooling skincare sounds ideal for summer.

    • It’s important to me too. Sometimes I get really upset to learn about ALL of the things that are banned in products in places like Europe and France, but are perfectly acceptable in the US.

  2. Oh I wish I lived closer to a Henri Bendel (I’m in Canada ;)). Skyn products sound wonderful especially the cool firming eye gels – this mama needs that! Maybe a road trip to the US is in order.

  3. I totally need a good eye gel. I’m trying to find pamper time too. I painted my toenails about a month ago. I need to do it again. They look horrible now. I’ll have to check out skyn products, but I’m kinda on a beauty budget.

    • I totally understand Heather. I’ve been saving the eye gels for *special times* because I want them to last!

  4. ohh, this looks good, maybe i can order online somewhere?

  5. I’m a big fan of all-natural paraben-free products also. Especially being pregnant, but when I’m not, too. These products look great, and I like how they have a soothing quality about them. I’d definitely try these!

  6. I’m glad you found some products that you like! It’s awesome that you’ve shared them with us. 🙂

  7. Monica. I only want these products if you promise I will look as beautiful as you. (You look positively radiant in this picture my friend!)

  8. This looks like a very great line, how long have you been using it? I am currently using a marketing line and when I’m done may try this esp if its all natural! Thanks

    • I’ve been using these products for a few weeks and I just LOVE the cooling element. It has a way of really making me feel relaxed. I think that my favorite products are the eye gel and the cooling cream. Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting Quyen :).

    I would live to attend an evening like this! The products sound perfect for moms who need to find ways to relax through self care.
