“The beauty rituals and stories that surround our potent and innovative formulations shape our philosophy: Self-care is Sacred. The results are products that feel as good to use as carrying out the sacred practices they are inspired by."
After decades working in the fast-paced television industry, 8 Faces founder Beth Shuman noticed stress-related changes to her skin from the hectic schedule and constant travel. It was then that she defined a need for a premium, multi-purpose product that was effective, easy to use and as much in-sync with nature as with her life on the go.
SELF-CARE IS SACRED
I believe in getting out into nature as much as possible. I have a little cottage on a lake in Muskoka, Canada where I go to unwind, get inspired and recharge. For me this is the best self-care.
The first thing I do every morning is kiss my son, and then drink a green tea that I make with Matcha Ninja and almond milk from Greenhouse Juice, mixing in some collagen powder from Good Goddess.
BEAUTY IS BASIC
I have a very uncomplicated approach to my routine. I like products that can multi-task, which is why I created Boundless Solid Oil. Every morning I use Thayer’s witch hazel as my toner, then our new Brilliance Serum to protect and promote radiance. My skin loves it, and has never looked better. Then I use a bit of concealer and mascara.
My grandmother used to sing "Que Sera Sera", and her advice was ‘what will be will be’. As cliche as it sounds it stuck with me. So I put my efforts into the process and not the outcome… things often end up better than you had hoped for!
I think I was meant to create clean beauty products; I used to help my mother make her own scrubs and masks.
MOVEMENT IS MEDICINE
I hike and walk a lot, and practice yoga. You won’t find me in a gym! I’d rather doing outdoor activities like skiing and wakeboarding.
WHAT’S IN MY BAG
I always have Flow Water, a red lip liner and gloss from 19/99 Beauty, and a Boundless Solid Oil mini that is my go-to for everything.
I use Boundless Solid Oil for almost everything: the ends of my hair, my cuticles, for after-sun care… the list is pretty “boundless”. I keep a jar everywhere.
At night I take a bath with epsom salts and do my own face tapping/massage ritual with Brilliance Serum to help with lymphatic drainage. The sandalwood and yuzu scent is heavenly. I "slug" with Boundless Solid Oil before a good night's sleep.
