Product Review: Aurelia Zierre

The problem with store bought scrubs and cleansers has never been that they don’t get the job done. Typically, they leave your face feeling clean enough and one is just as good as another. But along with that cleanliness comes a dried out feeling that falls very short of refreshing. The unnatural ingredients in store bought products is what brings on this dryness. Aurelia Zierre says that “we started our company in order to give people a safer and more natural alternative to caring for their skin” and I believe they’re doing just that!

It seems they know just what’s needed to leave a face renewed and nourished, and don’t bother adding anything other than that. Another great thing about Aurelia Zierre’s products is that purchasing them allows the opportunity to “pay it forward”. The company, based in Washington, DC, is connected to local charities such as The Homeless Children’s Playtime Project”. Having volunteered at this program (along with Raven!) a few years ago, I know first hand that they do good and important work in the community, offering parents some time for themselves while giving children a break from the trials of homelessness.

On working with “The Homeless Children’s Playtime Project”, Aurelia Zierre says, “We decided to partner with local charities because we’ve always done volunteer work throughout the city and believe that we could also help by donating 10% of our proceeds to local charities. We reached out to our supporters and customers in order to get an understanding of what charities people held dearest to their hearts. We wanted to only partner with organizations that had a direct impact on the lives of Washington DC residents in need of a little extra help. Playtime Project was an organization that we heard plenty about when we reached out; we fell in love with what they do and made sure to link them to our altruistic dreams. We will continue to add products to our line with the hopes of partnering with more charities. As we grow so will our reach.”
