Alicia Keys' New Lifestyle Brand Is Soul-care Meets Self-care
"'I don't want to cover up anymore. Not my face, not my mind, not my soul, not my thoughts, not my dreams, not my struggles, not my emotional growth. Nothing." - Alicia Keys
That comment right there gives you an idea of the superstar's vision for Keys Soulcare. Cool, right?
Keys Soulcare was inspired by Keys' own skincare journey and love of ancient beauty rituals. The skincare formulations were created with board-certified dermatologist Dr. Renée Snyder with the goal of providing effective products that are also clean and safe for the skin.
The line includes skincare products and skincare tools that you can buy online and in Ultra Beauty stores nationwide.
This delicate and soothing cleanser cleans pores and gently removes dirt, makeup, and impurities. But this cleanser doesn't just cleanse, it is an aromatherapy experience.

Price $20.
This sandalwood-scented face mask purifies and balances to restore harmony to your skin and soul.

Sage + Oat Milk Scented Candle

Obsidian Facial Roller
This roller helps to revitalize the appearance of your skin’s tone, texture, and suppleness.

Its cooling touch energizes as it soothes, helping promote a sense of tranquility while opening your awareness to the present moment. The natural obsidian stone feels heavy (weighted) and well-made. Price $25.
Lightweight, silky, and deeply hydrating, the camellia seed oil moisturizes and nourishes the skin.
