Welcome to our new site and our new blog! We thought it made sense to begin at the beginning (logical, right?), so a little bit about who we are: Splurge Skincare is run by us, Christine Cunningham and Kara Kivi. We are both teachers here in the Boston area who bonded over a shared love of beauty products. Christine and I could stock a small pharmacy with our jars and bottles of lotions and potions that are always promising the "next best thing". However, we're tough and discerning critics and we were frequently left disappointed by products that failed to live up to their hype. The idea to create our own product line came after I had given Christine a homemade body scrub one year for Christmas in an attempt to indulge my inner craftiness (one of my more successful projects - the great Martha Stewart candle making debacle notwithstanding). She approached me afterwards with the idea of making our own products to actually market and Splurge Skincare was born. From the beginning, we knew that we wanted our products to be organic, nothing bad for you or your skin. And, because we've always been so discerning about what we spend our own money on, we wanted our products to work above all else. If it wasn't something we would buy ourselves, we certainly wouldn't sell it. Since then, it's taken a lot of trial and error and a lot of research on ingredients, formulation, and running a business, but the end results are well worth it- products that not only work, but make you feel good about what you're putting on your skin. We hope you love them as much as we do!
We invite you to come back to check the blog regularly for updates on product launches, skincare news and information, as well as other topics of interest.
