I was asked by Elle about some of my favourite products. Not all of them could be featured in the magazine. So here are all my answers below. Hopefully you will find some of these become your favourite too !
What is your favourite…
Facial cleanser – "Skin Juice Smudge Budge - It removes makeup and can also be used on the eyes. The balm formula just melts into your skin upon contact and leaves the skin feeling soft and hydrated. This is a great cleanser for sensitive skin"
Facial exfoliator – "Josh Rosebrook Active Enzyme Exfoliator – This is applied like a mask and left on for between 10-40 minutes. I love that you don’t need to rub it into your skin which is great if you are sensitive. You can visibility see the difference in your skin tone after you have used it"
Facial moisturiser – "This is a tricky one as I have a lot of favourites ! I change my moisturisers around a lot depending on how my skin is feeling. My skin is naturally dry so especially in winter I use the Josh Rosebrook Vital Balm cream during the day, and I go for the Maya Chia The Super Blend Pressed Serum Brightening Moisture Concentrate in the evening. "
Facial treatment product – "I really love Skin Juice Facial In A Jar. It contains natural fruit acids to gentle exfoliate and resurface the skin. You can really see the difference after using this mask "
Eye product – "I am currently using Maya Chia The Eye Achiever. This is a serum containing Vitamin C Ester, and I just love the round metal ball applicator. It makes it easy to apply and feels cooling around the eyes when you apply it."
Body Moisturiser – "I really love the Eco By Sonya Coconut Body Milk. My whole family use this. It really leaves your skin hydrated after only one use"
Body wash – "I don’t use body wash very often, I personally prefer an actual bar of soap. I use the Dr Bronner’s Pure Castille Soap Bars. The rose scent is my personal favourite"
Tanning product –" Eco Tan Face Tan Water hands down. This product is amazing, and a firm favourite in our store . it not only gives a beautiful natural colour to your face , but also has skin benefits that leave your skin glowing"
Natural deodorant – "Vapour AER deodorant - I love that this is a gel to powder formula rather than a paste, and you apply it straight from the tube so it easily glides on. It works really well also"
Hair shampoo – "I just love the Innersense Organic Beauty range. My hair is quite fine, so I use the Pure Harmony Hairbath. It provides a great lather for a natural product, and in my opinion is equal to any main stream salon brand that I have tried in the past. I really can’t keep this range on the shelf long enough !"
Hair conditioner – "I use the Innersense Colour Radiance Conditioner. I colour my hair and use a straightener so it can get dry. This provides a little more nourishment than the pure range without being too heavy for my fine hair"
Hair Treatment/mask – "I use the Innersense Hydrating Hair Masque. It provides a real extra boost of nourishment. I really need to try and use it more often !"
Styling product – "I use a couple ! All from the Innersense range. I use a little of the Sweet Spirit Leave in Conditioner to help detangle my hair after I wash it. Having fine hair it tangles quite easily. I then use I Create Volume all throughout my hair for added volume. If i am in a hurry and don't have time to blow dry, I Create Volume is also great to define curls and manage frizz as my hair is naturally curly"
Natural fragrance – "Josh Rosebrook Ethereal . I honestly never thought I would like a natural fragrance until I tried this one !" (note: this is temporarily unavailable from Josh Rosberook)
Foundation - "Gressa Minimalist Corrective Serum Foundation. This provides such great coverage for a natural foundation, and doesn’t look thick or cakey. It leaves a lovely dewy finish without being to shiny, and a little really does go a way."
Lip colour –" oh that is tough ! on an everyday basis I tend to reach for the Skin Juice Guava Crush Lip and Cheek Tint , this smells devine, like raspberries and watermelon ! OR Nudus Lipstick in Halo"
Blush/bronzer – "Lily Lolo pressed blush in Coming Up Roses. It is such a pretty natural rose pink colour"
Top splurge item – "Maya Chia Highlight of the Day Illuminating Face Serum – This provides such a lovely sheen and glow to your skin. It is very versatile, it can be worn alone under or over makeup or mixed in with your foundation ."
Favourite organic treatment/spa – "I really just love a good old fashioned facial (using natural products of course) nothing fancy. It helps me to relax and the massage on your face increases the supply of oxygen to your face which means more blood flow. This helps increase collagen production !"
