The Proper Steps in your Skin Care Routine

A great skincare regimen requires planning and discipline. Results take time, so as I’ve mentioned before, consistency is key

First and foremost, I advise taking The Donata Skinfood Quiz. This will make sure that you have the right collection of products from the start. The quiz is a great tool to help you find which Skinfood products are best for you.

Once you have the products specific to your needs, it’s time to go in on the skin!

The ideal weekly routine:

  • Cleanse/Mask/Toner/ Moisturize (The Mask should only be used twice a week, we recommend our new Le Jardin Mask)
  • Cleanse/Scrub/Toner/Moisturize (The Scrub may be used 1 or 2 times a week.)
  • Cleanse/Toner/Moisturize on other days.

Our Recommendations?


  • Pine Tar Soap: Combination/Normal Skin
  • Spinach Soap: Dry Skin
  • Turmeric Soap: Oily Skin

Toner: Our NEW Le Jardin Toner for large pores, inflammaton, acne scars, pH balance, and deep cleaning to help you achieve your ultimate GLOW

Mask: Our NEW Le Jardin Mask made with all-natural, from-the-kitchen ingredients like oatmeal, spinach, aloe, and avocado to help reduce sensitive skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, KP, dark spots, acne, acne scars, or any discoloration

Scrub: Exfoliate and buff away dead skin cells with our Vegan Body Scrub. Made with sensory aromas of calming lemongrass and renewing lavendar, you'll have a spa experience in your bathroom

Moisturizer: Whether you are looking for a full-face or body spot treatment moisturizer in the hyperpigmetnation reducing Scar Butter, or a full-face or body moisturizer in the Oatmeal Salve, we have exactly what you need to feel nourished all day long.

Keep In Mind:

When settling into your routine, there are a few additional things to keep in mind. Make sure you are mindful of water temperature. Water that is too hot will hinder the best of skincare routines, aim for cool to lukewarm water. Also, when applying products, don’t be overly aggressive, and avoid over-stretching the skin as well. Be sure to use the right Skinfood Soap for your cleansing phase, as this sets the tone for the rest of the routine.

Only used half the bag and made 3 jars, it was super easy to make and does not have a smell. Highly recommend!

Scar Butter
Kaylan Brown (Seattle, US)

I’ve been a consistent customer for over a year now with soaps. I’ve finally committed to using the scar butter and I’ve noticed it’s helped with hyperpigmentation, and pimples. For the small pimples I usually see minimization by the following day and larger ones within a few.

Scar Butter
Denise Hildreth (Troy, US)
The BEST Results for Hyperpigmentation!!!

I had a darkened shadow under my bottom lip because of my braces. I did not like this darkened shadow so, I reached out to Donata and DM'd her asking if her product, scar butter would work for me. She advised that I send her a picture so she could take a look. And without hesitation, after looking at the hyperpigmentation on my face, she suggested that I order the trial size Scar butter. Which I did! Within a few weeks, I started noticing the darkened shadow under my lip was almost unnoticeable. I was truly AMAZED by this product and the satisfaction of my results!!! I've even stopped wearing make-up on an everyday basis because of this product!! Highly Recommend using Scar butter for ALL hyperpigmentation issues!!

Vegan Body Butters
Nick Cross (Stockbridge, US)

I used the butter at night after shower & could still smell the amazing scent the next day. Great texture and skin polish. You can feel it penetrating through the pores!
