One day when I was scrolling through Instagram, I came across Knocking on Forty’s, beauty posts. At first, it was the title that attracted my attention as I fit into this category (aaaah), then it was her visuals. Being a product junkie to say the least, I reached out to owner, Cayli Cavaco Reck and was taken with her warm personality. Bottom line though, it was her well curated products that had me hooked.
In addition to her blog, Cavaco runs a jewel like boutique on the Upper East Side. which I recently visited. With the overwhelming amount of options that are on the market, Cayli has the ability to tailor the most current, covetable and “clean” products according to each person’s need. What impressed me the most was how familiar, knowledgeable and passionate she was about the products she carries.
I came away with two new products, Vintner’s Daughter Active Botanical Serum and Meder face masks. I am obsessed with the serum. I have been applying this daily and notice a definite glow. This aromatic oil has a scent that kills me in such a good way. I want to seriously slather this all over. I recently stopped taking antibiotics for my adult acne and apparently this serum is also supposed to restore the skins balance…so far so good. I’m planning on trying the series of face masks and will keep you posted. Cayli deemed this a winner so I am sure it will deliver!
