Last week I shared a few of my favorite local jewelry artisans that will be a part of the New Mexico Artisan Market. Today, I am back to talk a little bit about a new-to-me local skincare company, Dryland Wilds. Prior to meeting with these amazing artisans, I had seen their products while shopping around Spurline Supply Co., but have never actually tried any of them.
Handmade Skincare from Dryland Wilds
A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to meet with Cebastien and Robin of Dryland Wilds. To say I was blown away is a total understatement. The ladies of Dryland Wilds create every single thing, from the product itself to the packaging and graphics all on their own. Through various processes, they pull fragrance from the plants that they harvest. From this, they blend the extracts with other botanicals, such as essentials oils, to capture the desert’s true scent. If you are from New Mexico, or have ever traveled here, you will immediately recognize the scents and they are incredible!
I’m especially impressed with their desert deodorant. I have been on the hunt for a natural deodorant that doesn’t irritate my skin, and I think I’ve finally found it! I opted for the sans baking soda formula, but you can purchase one with it if you prefer. This has seemed to do the trick to avoiding irritation! I will definitely be sharing more about their beauty products in my upcoming beauty hits and misses, so stay tuned!
Where to Shop
Dryland Wilds products can be found in various shops in the Albuquerque area, including their store front in Spurline Supply Co. If you’re not local, you can find a list of where you can find them here, which includes spots in CO, CA, and OR. They will also be a part of the New Mexico Artisan Market this coming Thanksgiving weekend that you won’t want to miss!
If you’re not convinced yet that you need to check out Dryland Wilds, they also host monthly workshops at Spurline. Some of their workshops include how to create your own incense and desert perfumes. I had the chance to stop by during one of their workshops, which was the incense class. They provide all of the local ingredients that you need to create you own!
Thank you to the New Mexico Artisan Market and Dryland Wilds for partnering with me on this post.
