As the end of 2022 approaches and the curtains draw closer on events like the COVID pandemic, the war in the Ukraine, the insurrection of our Capitol, the expose of many in leadership positions; the shift towards conscious living seems a natural and much needed turn. We’ve asked more questions and care about the answers to the following: Who are the leaders? What is their mission? In other aspects of our life, we begin to ask the questions: What is the effect of our actions on another? What do we consume daily? And what went into the process of making what we consume every day? This couldn’t be more true when it applies to health and beauty. Quick fixes and invasive beauty options aren’t enough as we search for long term and sustainable solutions to age old problems. In the face of slowing down collectively and eschewing fast-paced living of overpacked schedules, deadlines, unending to-do lists; now with a bent to reducing clutter, the role of mindfulness underscores every step taken. These steps seem to make more sense as we cultivate moments of calm and learn the transformative lesson of elevating our every day. Slow beauty and skin care is a necessary evolution to our daily rituals.
But what exactly is slow beauty? What is slow skin care?
Slow beauty and slow skincare is a philosophy that encourages individuals to cultivate self-care rituals that are rooted in nature, health and sustainability to elicit joy and pleasure by using products that invoke the senses, combine the powerful elements found in nature, thereby fostering lasting healthy habits. Daily self-care rituals prioritize paying attention to how one feels, being mindful and noticing moments of joy and/or pleasure. Doing so can reduce stress by altering the internal inflammatory pathways and supporting your mind and body to connect in relaxation. It requires slowing down to allow for positive change over time simply by feeling indulgently good in the every day.
24K gold is a key ingredient in all Sonnet 79™ formulations. This luxurious element has been used in skincare since ancient times and as part of Ayurvedic medicine for its regenerating and prestigious properties. We’ve chosen gold as a key active ingredient because of its scientifically proven anti- aging properties, ability to irradicate free radicals, reduce inflammation, purify skin and promote skin cell renewal. Visually, held up to the sunlight, a ray of gold can be seen in our intimate oil. Gold combined in a reaction with water imparts the natural mauve-hued color to our cleansing mask and intimate mist. Happy to say, skincare that glistens can be pure gold!
Sonnet 79™ stimulates all our senses creating a dynamic sensorial experience which is deeply engrained in the philosophy and movement of slow beauty and slow skincare. It seems counter to the fast-paced world that offers quick fixes with immediate results to stop or reverse the effects of aging or to fit into preconstructed ideals of beauty. Growing up and seeing limited pages of represented females like myself in the glossy magazines, I’ve created products to reframe and redefine preconstructed ideals of beauty. Sonnet 79™ transcends age, color, race or binaries, recognizing and paying homage to the infinite beauty contained inherently in each of us. We intend that Sonnet 79™ products are integrated into a bespoke self-care ritual where individual rhythms, the undeniable healing properties of one’s body, the powerful marriage of nature and science meet.
Experience the pleasure of luxurious 24K gold against all intimate skin with our Sonnet 79™Intimate Oil appliednightly as part of a self-care ritual. For a heightened experience, prepare skin by dry brushing prior to application of the oil with the use of Body Shop’s cactus brush (a favorite) or the Sonnet 79™ Artist’s Brush. Push two to three times on our push button dropper from our 24K Gold Oil for Intimate Skin and dispense the oil onto the Sonnet 79™palette. Enjoy the feeling of pleasure as you become the artist painting the oil on intimate skin, creating your own masterpiece. This maybe done alone or enjoyed with a partner.

We were lucky enough to get an early preview (heaven); around the same time, we started taking the new multivitamin. So our skin (and, we have to say, our hair) is looking its best. On top of that, we’ve discovered an unbelievable serum from one of the world’s best dermatologists, a “75 degree” eye shadow palette, and a new cult brow product. Plus, an all-time favorite concealer is finally back in stock.
