This month we had the pleasure of doing a short Q & A with Sakura Andersen. Known as “Sakura’s Beauty Blog” on Instagram, Sakura uses her social media to share beautiful flowery photos and honest reviews of new cruelty-free beauty and skincare products. We love working with Sakura because she embodies our brand’s top value: self-care via skincare.
Q: What is your mission?
A: “My goal is self-care through skincare, trying to ensure that every day I do one thing to take care of myself, with facials, sheet masks, or something as simple as washing my face. I’m looking forward to continuously meet new people and brands in my ongoing search for glowing skin. Another goal I have is to spread positivity and support to anyone else struggling with self-care because of depression, anxiety, and chronic illnesses.”
Q: What is your number 1 beauty tip?
A: “Regardless of your skin type or condition, a good, clean facial oil is the best product you can have in your skincare arsenal! Oils can help plump and hydrate dry, aging skin, and is surprisingly effective in fighting acne-prone oily skin.”
Q: What is your go-to self-care routine?
A: “I am a huge fan of the 10 Step Korean Skincare Routine (for those interested, it doesn’t need to be Korean). It includes oil cleansing, toners, essences/serums, oils, moisturizer, then a nourishing sleep mask. It has transformed my skin from blah to yah!”
Q: What is your favorite Flora & Fauna product, and why?
A: “I’m obsessed with the cuticle hero pen! I work in the healthcare field, so I am frequently washing my hands with harsh medical grade soaps. My nails would be a mess without it! I have the Rejuvenating Cream on the way, and I already know I’ll love it!”
Q: What makes Flora & Fauna different from other skincare and beauty brands?
A: “I’m amazed at the staggering amount of love, support, and empowerment of women they promote, which is so important right now in the world. So much positivity just shows that the future, truly, is female!”
