Hooked Studios Skincare

If you're like me, you're always looking for a good line a skincare. I have combination skin and it seems that I'm always bouncing from one line of products to the next hoping it will due what I want. Out of her own frustration, my friend Jill recently launched her own line of skincare and has been getting great reviews. She sells the line here on etsy. I wanted to help her get the word out about her new product so I thought I'd share a little information about her and her product.

I've been researching all-natural skincare for quite awhile now, thanks in part to my frustration with conventional products' effectiveness. I recently created a cleanser/mask that has been incredibly successful here in Minneapolis. It has been featured in two local publications' Holiday Gift Guides, and will be entering more local stores soon! I'm just grateful it seems to be working as well for so many others as it has been for me.

Hooked Studios Skincare works for any skintype; is completely organic; fragrance-free; shrinks appearance of pores; clears up acne; softens and tightens skin; and is a generally soothing product--great for winter.
Here is a little more information that she sent me about the skincare that contains a list of ingredients and what they do for your skin.

Hooked Studios Skincare is made of all-natural, fresh, organic ingredients. Each ingredient is selected based on its time-tested history of proven results. Natural skincare has existed for centuries; our skincare hearkens back to a simpler era when chemicals didn’t undermine the terrific results nature alone can bring out. We bear in mind that your skin is your body’s largest organ and that products applied to the skin absorb readily into the bloodstream. This means the healthy food choices you make daily are being negated by any chemicals you choose to put on your skin. We’re here to remedy that and make you look and feel amazing in the process.
