Gua Sha Set
The perfect facial duo to moisturize, nourish, and massage, for an enhanced facial routine. The gua sha tool is made of natural black obsidian and helps to visibly tighten and sculpt tissue while releasing & relieving muscular tension. When practiced regularly and done correctly, gua sha promotes better circulation, healthier skin tissue, and stronger facial muscles, as well as reduces puffiness, lessens the appearance of lines, and improves skin texture and elasticity. The result from regular use of gua sha is a more toned complexion with a natural glow.

EFO-Summer was specifically formulated to be a lighter version of our best selling Essential Face Oil. How is it lighter while still being full of nourishing & hydrating oils? Certain botanical oils are considered to be 'dry' because they absorb more quickly into the skin. Grapeseed oil is one of these and now found in Summer Days. This oil has all the same properties of EFO, such as being an excellent regenerating, revitalizing, and restoring serum for mature or aging skin, but also with the additon of an antioxidant powerhouse from the polyphenol compounds of grapeseeds.
