Before launching her own line of holistic beauty products, Tammy Fender worked as an aesthetician, with celebrity clients like Julianne Moore and Alicia Silverstone, and started blending her own custom formulas in her kitchen. In addition to knowing good skin, Fender also studied botany, aromatherapy, and holistic chemistry, so it’s no surprise her 100% botanical products are made with organic, food-grade ingredients. Our skin is our largest organ, and Fender believes in treating it as well as you do your other vital organs—think of her products as a green juice for your skin cells. Ready to try? Read on for reviews of our Top 5 Tammy Fender faves:
Bulgarian Rose Water: Used like a toner, this exquisitely floral-scented liquid restores balance to all skin types. It’s especially good for sensitive, mature, and dry skin, because it tones without leaving skin feeling tight or stripped. Rather than using alcohol like many other drying toners, it’s made with ultra-valuable Bulgarian Rose essential oil, which uses more than 7,000 petals to produce a single drop.
Spontaneous Recovery Crème: No wonder this butter-thick crème is so popular in places like Aspen—it’s ideal for harsh climates, whether they’re at high altitude, cold, windy, hot, or dry. Applied in advance, the crème is extremely protective; if you forgot it before exposure, its essential oils of rose hips, chamomile, and lavender team up to hydrate and repair dry, damaged skin. Thanks to its healing properties, it’s also great to use after surgery, laser treatments, micro-dermabrasion, and injections (this could also be why it’s so popular in Aspen).
Cleansing Milk, Lavender & Fo-Ti: Lavender is known for its calming properties, and this cleanser uses Bulgarian lavender, which has antiseptic qualities to balance sebum production for oily skin, and fo-ti, a root used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for its calming properties. The super-gentle cleanser also promotes healing, so helps reduce inflammation from acne, rosacea, and overall dryness.
Epi-Peel: Most people think “natural” means “not so effective,” but this peel proves any doubters wrong. Applied as a mask for five minutes twice or three times a week, skin looks younger, fresher, and actually glows, thanks to natural exfoliating citruses, spearmint, and Moroccan rosemary. With purifying Kaolin Clay, it also helps clear clogged pores. Bonus: unlike lots of other peels that make skin tingle, burn, or become overly-sensitive, the peel feels pleasant and uses soothing oats to keep skin calm.
Quintessential Serum: This is one of the most sought-after of the Tammy Fender products (Gwyneth Paltrow is a fan) not just because of its delightful herbal scent, but because of its anti-aging results, no needles necessary. Instead, it’s loaded with a nutritional punch of fatty and gamma linolenic oils, vitamins, and rose, chamomile, and frankincense, which naturally repair and rejuvenate skin cells, so your face looks brighter and more vibrant.
