We all know that it’s what’s on the inside that counts, but Brooklyn-based Flynn&King sure knows how to make a first impression with it’s packaging. The geometric background and gold script will give - even the nicest of vanities - a pretty upgrade. Cue: #topshelfie. It’s clear the brand wants to shower you like the queen and king that you are (no pun intended) - did you see it’s cute crown?
“Do Good, Look great” is the brand mission and Flynn&King is practicing what it preaches. From the gorgeous, sustainable or refillable packaging, to the high-performing, multi-functioning and natural and organic formulas, each of the elements are carefully and consciously sourced from all parts of the world.
So what’s in the recipe-for-good-skin formulas? Beeswax from Upstate New York, Calendula Petals from Croatia, Matcha Green Tea from Japan, Poppy Seed from Turkey, Rose Petals from France, Tea Tree from Australia, Mango Butter from India, Aloe Juice, Activated Charcoal, Pink Clay, and many other essential oils, clays, oils butters and waxes. Worldly ingredients for out of this world products! The two #girlboss founders, Summer Dinh Manske and Corina McDonnell, hand-make the products in small batches to maximize freshness and effectiveness without the use of chemicals, cheap fillers, or preservatives.
I had the chance to get skintimate with a selection of the brand’s body and facial products and I am excited to share insight on the collection with you.
Luxurious. Delicious. Gentle. Moisturizing. High-performing. These are just a few of the words I would use to describe the Flynn&King soaps. Upon first opening the package, you are immediately welcomed by a heavenly aroma. You can smell how fresh the ingredients are. Then, just when you think it can't get any better, it does. Add water, lather, and indulge in the moment. Each of the soaps are gentle and designed to cleanse without over stripping your skin of it's natural oils. There's a soap for everyone so get ready to meet your match!
Hit the refresh button on your skin with the Flynn&King Balance Facial Toner with Aloe and Rose Geranium. The toning mist quenches the thirstiest of skin, helps balance oiliness or dryness, and infuses skin with protective antioxidants that leave your complexion soft and supple! Added bonus: the energizing scent instantly uplifts moods.
Let’s just say this is the balm.com! The Flynn&King Recover Balm in Orange Lavender not only softens and soothes your lips, but it can also be used to hydrate and reinvigorate your hands, feet, elbow, knees and cuticles. The all-in-one skin savior contains Shea Butter, natural Vitamins A, E and F that encourage healthy skin growth, and antioxidants that serve signs of aging and promote collagen production. You have to get your hands (literally) on one of these!
The brand may be working to reduce it's carbon footprint, but it certainly can’t help but leave a footprint on your heart. Interested in checking out the brand story and collection? Head on over to www.flynnandking.com and/or check out @flynnandking.
