Cultured Naturals Body Care
Many of you are likely familiar with local favorite Cultured Naturals Body Care (CNBC). Founded and created by trained Nurse Ramone Reid, CNBC products marry science with nature, as well as the wonderful Caribbean knowledge passed down through her family. Based right here on St. Croix, CNBC features high quality, vegan beauty products made from scratch with plant-based ingredients such as essential oils, botanicals, plant oils and butters. Offering a wide range of body and hair care products, for men, women and children of all ages, CNBC has launched a new website so you can shop online, as well as in their Christiansted store! But, if you have a chance to stop by the store, their wonderful staff can provide you with a consultation to find the right products to make your skin glow and your hair shine.
At Pampered VI it’s all about the eyes! While many of you may know Pampered VI for offering amazing lash extensions, this popular day spa also houses a retail shop. If you’re not quite ready to commit to getting eyelash extensions done (although I do recommend it) you can buy magnetic eyelashes by Tori Belle Cosmetics. With these lashes you apply a magnetic eyeliner, and the false lashes stick magnetically to the liner. If you’re looking for something other then lashes, let esthetician Jordan Stevens introduce you to the Image Skincare, a clean clinical skincare line known for being efficacy driven, and consciously made. Stop by the Pampered VI retail shop to see what other beauty goodies they have available.
Who doesn’t like to look and feel their best? Some people find a great new haircut or color will do the trick, for others it’s having clear, soft skin, for some it’s rocking a bright new shade of lipstick. Whatever makes you feel beautiful, here at GoToStCroix.com we are your resource for finding those places that bring out your inner beauty and make you feel your best.
