Shhhhhhh don’t tell anyone, but I’m getting older. In fact we all are (fun way to start a blog haha!).
But the reality is, we are, and the older we get, the more we have to start taking better care of ourselves.
No more coming home late from a night out and just crashing into bed, full face of make up and all (uh oh, panda eyes!). No more eating maccas every Friday night and not expecting to put on weight (wait what?!)
As a chick who is now (almost) closer to 40 than I am to 30, I’ve really started thinking about what I’m putting into my mouth, and also onto my skin. Organic skin care and makeup seems to make sense.
Natural ingredients, no nasties that block up your skin (and are absorbed BY your skin into your body!) I think that sounds like a good idea don’t you?
I’m working with the team at Anchor Organic Milk to explore the growing trend towards organic products, both in the kitchen, the wardrobe and on our beauty shelves! Here are a couple of organic beauty brands that I think you need to try.
They are affordable, amazing quality and GOOD for you!
1. Moreish Skincare
It’s called Moreish because once you try it, you can’t get enough of it!
Made with 100% organix moroccan argan oil, and containing no parabens (sneaky chemicals that can mimic estrogen and raise levels in the body) or phenoxyethanol (a chemical preservative that can make your skin irritated or itchy!) this brand of products includes cleansers, moisturisers a yummy hand cream and a pure agean oil they call “Pure Gold”.
The whole Moreish range is really affordable, with the collection ranging from $20-$30 and is available at Countdowns in NZ and Priceline in Aus.
Ok make-up time! INIKA has smashed the myth that natural make-up has to compromise on performance or fashion. Certified organic, vegan, halal, and cruelty-free, this brand ticks all the boxes!
With lip colours like “Bordeaux Bliss” and “Rose Bud” this brand brings it all to you, without having to worry about what chemical preservatives and potential carcinogens you are putting on your skin.
Amazing bronzers and blushes, dreamy smooth foundations and eye and lip colours for days, the only problem will be deciding where to start!
Inika is available in New Zealand from the gorgeous Vanilla Bloom online store and Hardy’s healthfood stores around the country and prices range from $24.99 for some brushes to $69.99 for foundations.
3. Essano Skincare
You KNOW this is a fave of mine, and it’s a fave not only because it smells AMAZING, and I love the pink packaging (marketer’s dream right here people) BUT its all based on the divine rosehip oil, it’s like super-food for your skin.
You whole beauty routine, face and body, is covered by this awesome brand. With face and body washes, exfoliators, creams for day and night, and once again, the jewel in the crown, Rosehip oil (remember how much I loved it to help heal my scar?).
Again, this amazing brand is available from supermarkets nationwide in both Aus and NZ, ranging from $15 – $35.
So there are three amazing brands that are not only great for your skin, but nice and friendly to your bank balance too. You’re welcome 😉
Have you even thought about what you’re putting ON your skin and how it ends up in your body? Do you already use organic beauty products? Tell my what brands you use, I’d love to find more!
Until Next Time, In Style & Love Always,
