Love Your Skin This Valentine’s Day with Kerstin Florian
- Brooks Dibble
…Valentine’s Day, give the gift of glowing skin with Kerstin Florian’s ANDA® line -- a curated collection of natural and organic skincare dedicated to the memory of Kerstin’s late daughter, Charlene Florian. ANDA -- the Swedish word for “breath” -- is both cruelty-free and vegan. The products are formulated with natural ingredients, which is lovely, but do they work you ask? We’re happy to say, the answer is YES.
The ANDA line is comprised of three products which are all-natural, organic, cruelty-free, vegan, and packaged in recyclable and sustainable materials. Even sweeter, Kerstin Florian donates $1 to WeForest with every purchase, supporting their mission to plant 175B trees by 2030…watch the progress in real-time by clicking on their interactive map!

Usually the words “Prickly Pear” elicit a craving for our favorite margarita -- but in this case, we learned that this super fruit increases firmness, elasticity and cellular longevity of the skin. Alongside the Prickly Pear, the Coherence Elixir packs Mondo Grass, which rehydrates the skin and Structured Water (aka gel water).
This balm melts into your skin! It’s a go-to for moisture during the drier winter months. The ingredients include Buriti (an oil that comes from the moriche palm tree in the Amazon) which firms and tightens the skin, while providing protection from environmental pollutants. Sea Kelp reinforces the membrane of skin cells, soothes irritation and boosts circulation, while Carrot Seed, rich in antioxidants and polyphenols, protects the skin from free radicals.
Made with Snow Lotus -- which detoxifies, oxygenates, brightens and renews the skin -- the Vitalessence Serum-Oil delivers immediate replenishment to thirsty skin restoring moisture balance and protection from environmental stressors. In addition to Snow Lotus, Moringa penetrates the skin deeply to repair and sooth, while slowing cell aging. Sea Buckthorn improves hydration and flexibility of the skin.
These products turn a morning and evening skincare routine into precious moments of self-care. From what we’ve learned of Charlene, moments of self-love are exactly what she would have wanted all of her customers to feel. Her personal pursuits in yoga, meditation, creative visualization and nutrition infused and directed her work life, culminating in the development of ANDA, the embodiment of the positivity, self-love and dedication to healthy living that she wanted to share with the world. We love what the ANDA line does for the skin, and we love everything this brand stands for.
