The team over at Chillhouse has been going non-stop since the launch of their Chill Tips back in 2020 – with two collections in the books and tons of cult-classic Chill Merch under their wings, it was only a matter of time before they dove into their own formulated products. Since oils are a staple in both facial and massage (aka, some of the anchor services at their Soho Flagship), it felt like a natural next step for the self-care obsessed brand to create their own signature formulas to add into services and to bring the chill experience home with you. Meet Chill Oils.
Chill Oils is a collection designed to elevate your mood through clean ingredients, refined scents, and a simplified daily routine. It’s also the first collection from Chill Labs, Chillhouse’s formulated products. The collection includes four oils – Have a Chill Day Face Oil, Have a Chill Night Face Oil, Have a Chill Day Body Oil, and Have a Chill Night Body Oil. Chillhouse founder and CEO Cyndi Ramirez-Fulton started Chillhouse to simplify the beauty and spa experience while making it fun and accessible to all by promising to deliver quality products that don’t add to an overly saturated industry, but rather bring joy and ease to your everyday life. We got the full scoop from her, below.
What inspired Chill Oils?
Chill Oils were inspired by my own need to keep up with a consistent day & evening routine. I’m one of those internet humans that are lucky enough to be gifted a ton of beauty products and have acquired so much skincare in my life between this and growing up as the daughter of an esthetician. And while I love love loooove so much of what sits on my shelf, I was feeling a bit overwhelmed by the process and realized there wasn’t a brand creating products centered around rituals in a way that spoke to me. This made it hard for me to create a consistent routine, therefore I knew I wanted to create something that helped our community stay on track when it came to their skin & bodycare.
Oils, to me, are the most luxurious yet essential steps of the skin & body process. There is a lot out there, yes, but I wanted to formulate products that were suitable for all skin types and addressed many of our skin concerns from a day to day perspective. We tackle a lot of concerns across all four products and the collection works super nicely together when used consistently both times of the day. The ingredients, paired with the natural aromas, create this incredible silky texture and sensory effect that will leave you feeling like you just walked out of the best spa session of your life.
Overall though, what I love most is that they’re super hydrating, yet fast-absorbing and non-greasy, and have mood-lifting aromas that will put you in an instant chill mood. They truly are the quintessential spa experience in bottle form.
What are some of your favorite ingredients in these oils?
So many to even name but a few standouts are as follows…
In the day oils: The antioxidants & super hydrators! Squalane (not to be confused by squalene) is a vegan ingredient found in both day oils. It’s a synthetic lipid that mimics natural oils in our skin that aid in reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and oil production. It’s also hyper hydrating without being heavy, which is why our oils won’t leave you feeling super greasy. Other ingredients I love are the prickly pear seed oil and sunflower seed oil because they’re naturally high in vitamin E which is a potent antioxidant that fights free radicals caused by UV exposure and daily exposure to pollution and environmental toxins. Please always remember to top off your face oils with SPF!
In the night oils: The anti-inflammation heroes. Borage seed oil is high in gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) to protect skin from inflammatory flare-ups related to acne, psoriasis, and eczema that may be triggered by the day’s exposure to bacteria and toxins, ensuring glowing and refreshed skin upon wakeup. Rosemary leaf extract and blue tansy oil provide a calming effect to reduce signs of skin irritation, reduce swelling and puffiness and repair skin damage.
How do these oils work beyond skincare?
They’re so much more than skin deep. They’re ritual-setting, everyday essentials that remind you that skin & body care should be a daily practice, not just when your skin is desperate for it. My mood is immediately lifted upon using them and they’re constant reminders to take a beat and wind it down for a bit. Our hope is that they serve as a representation that it’s important to take care of yourself from the inside out each and every day, whatever that may look like to you.
How do you work these oils into your self-care ritual?
Since I’ve started using the oils, I’ve actually minimized how much I do in the morning and evening, honestly. That’s the beauty of the oils — you don’t need much. In the AM, I usually start my getting ready process by showering and cleansing my face in the shower. Afterward, I spritz a toning mist, then apply the day face oil (two pumps), and I top off with Supergoop Unseen Sunscreen. I also apply the body oil directly after showering. The mist spray allows for a smooth, even spread and it absorbs quickly enough that you don’t have to worry about throwing on your clothes immediately after (this was an important need of mine when developing the products, btw!)
In the evening, I sometimes double cleanse (exfoliating beads for the win!), and then apply the night oil and pair it with a Gua Sha sesh. I do the same Gua Sha ritual with my body using Wildling’s Gua Sha since it’s a bit bigger than ours. It gets things moving (lymph, circulation, etc) and allows my body to detox overnight. When I’m consistent with this flow, I find that I wake up more refreshed, softer, and overall lighter.
What is Chill Labs and what can we expect from Chillhouse in the future?
