Finding a good quality organic or natural beauty or skincare product is quite a revelation and will promptly convert you from a sceptic to a true believer. And yes, that is the voice of experience talking.
This month’s YOU Beauty Box Organic & Natural shortlist is packed with the crème de la crème of this rapidly growing beauty category and we’re thrilled to be able to connect you with these fabulous brands and gorgeous products.
Inspired by nature and refined by industry experts; this is a powerful collection of beauty and skincare products, that promise real results and a clear conscience.
These are the products that made the cut, and why:
Wake-up to real make-up…
You’ll find two fantastic make-up products on the April edit; one to help you raise your lip game and the other to fake a good night’s sleep and disguise a late night!
PHB’s Organic Lip Crayon in Pink is a richly pigmented, long-lasting matte pink, designed for wearing both on the lips, or as a lipliner. Top Tip: Use PHB’s Organic Lip Crayon in Pink as a lip liner if you’re worried about fine lines and aging around the mouth area or lips themselves, it adds instant definition.
Balance Me’s Tinted Wonder Eye Cream sits somewhere between make-up and skincare and works as a powerful double-action product that really brightens and opens the eyes, whilst treating the area and reducing the signs of ageing and fatigue.
Clean skin, clear conscience…
It’s feeling very spring-like suddenly, so supercharge your skin with these replenishing skin saviours:
Let’s start with a fresh alternative to everyone’s favourite guilty pleasure – the face wipe. For many these are the cardinal sin of skincare but AA Skincare have raised the bar with their Green Tea & Aloe Vera Soothing Cleansing Wipes. These are unlike any face wipes we’ve tried before and they leave the skin feeling thoroughly cleansed and nourished, without the usual drying or soreness. They aren’t as wet as typical face wipes and they’re alcohol, paraben and fragrance free – the wipes themselves feel more like cloths too, so your skin isn’t aggravated in the slightest.
Jurlique’s Rosewater Balancing Mist is our hero of the month and we’re championing this brand thanks to its complete range and premium cocktail of ingredients. This mist is lightly fragranced and rich in rose essential oil and potent botanicals to refresh and hydrate at once. Click here to find out more about Jurlique.
Amie Morning Dew™ Matte Finish Moisturiser is one of our first beauty loves and an office go-to for anyone with an oily or combination skin type – as well as a random shiny forehead! This miracle moisturiser is loaded with natural skin-loving ingredients, without overloading the skin. As well as delivering the perfect dose of moisture, this product dramatically reduces shine and is the perfect base for make-up.
Next up, Bee Good’s Youth Enhancing Smooth & Prime Serum is teeming with potent natural ingredients to improve everything from uneven skin tone, to the appearance of fine lines – whilst delivering added hydration. Wonderful for anyone who is worried about the appearance of fine lines and early signs of ageing.
SKN-RG Organics Cellular Repair Moisturiser, for normal and combination skin types, is one of the biggest game changers of the month and has introduced us to a completely new brand. This cutting edge organic formula combines probiotics, energised nutrients, herbs and roots for skin smoothing daywear that also serves to bolster skin’s resilience.
Sticking with complexion calmers for a moment, REN Evercalm™ Ultra Comforting Rescue Mask is a one-mask-fits-all approach to perfect skin. This powerful mask really is the answer for skin that is stressed and aggravated and in need of some TLC. One treatment will leave the skin looking and feeling recovered, balanced and protected.
White Rabbit Comfort Cleansing Balm is yet another neutralising product but this time it’s specifically suited to drier skin types, or anyone lacking a bit of oomph. This product is like a mini spa treatment with every use and is a pleasure to apply – plus you only need a small amount to get clear results. Skin is left feeling peachy clean and beautifully glowing.
For your lips, YBB have got a post-winter fixer courtesy of Balm Balm; the Tea Tree Lip Balm is 100% organic and boasts antibacterial properties as well as the normal moisturising and conditioning.
Shiny, happy people…
