Reading Time: 5 minutes
Share this story:

Chinese New Year is all about family reunions, red packets, eating too much, lion dances and having a lot of fun! Not just that, it’s a spiritually cleansing time of the year. A time where we can forgive and forget old grudges, laugh off all off the negative things of the last year, and welcome prosperity, happiness, and good fortune into our homes. It’s a truly joyous occasion.

Happy Chinese New Year, we wish you good health, lasting prosperity and a conscious mind

Just two weeks more to the festivities and we’ve got a treat for you to ring in the year of the dog in conscious style. You’re welcome!

Use the code “GITNB” for a complimentary sample sized pod of their Akar Skin’s Ruby Tint Lip Butter here (valid for the month of February)

A little tint of red without going overboard, go for Apres Avant‘s Akar Skin’s Ruby Tint Lip Butter. Traditional lip balms contain petroleum derived from mineral oil which creates a false sense of hydration by sealing the lips with a plastic-like coat, clogging and suffocating the pores, ageing it in time. Yuck! the Akar Skin’s Ruby Tint Lip Butter is made with a concoction of soothing and nutrient-rich oils that will smooth lines and keep lips supple and glossy. With its colour derived from alkanes root, it will leave a subtle red hue on the lips. It is the perfect hydration for even the driest lips.
