The Organic Pharmacy Travel Set
Price: £45 for the travel set
Hi Beauties, Happy Easter! Sorry about the short hiatus, I have no excuse other than that Hong Kong was a blast! I’m back in surprisingly sunny London, armed with yet another review!
You have heard me rave about it again, and again. Yes, this is The Organic Pharmacy Travel Kit, included are 5 of their best sellers, just the right size to make you fall in love with this luxurious London based organic brand.
Dr Alkaitis Organic Replenishing Serum
Overall Performance: 9.5/10 (scored as a toner)
The Organic Replenishing Serum (or the Organic Herbal Toner in the US) is the first product I have tried from the Dr. Alkaitis range, and it certainly won’t be the last. Formulated as “raw health foods” for the skin, Dr. Alkaitis skincare products are 100% biologically active. This means that if you neglect your Dr. Alkaitis products for more than 12 months, it could potentially sprout legs and run away from home.
Just kidding. You are, however, advised to finish off a product within a year due to the living ingredients. I like to think of this as the raw food diet for your skin. Intrigued? Then read on!
Kimberly Sayer Moisturising Cream Performance: 6/10
Kimberly Sayer Ultra Light Moisturiser Performance: 8.5/10
Price: £25.80 each
The Kimberly Sayer SPFs have been on my radar for a long while. Given how highly rated they are in the green beauty community, I had high expectations. The Kimberly Sayer SPFs are mineral sunscreen and moisturiser in one. They are derived from all natural ingredients, and are suitable for even the most sensitive of skins.
As I have dry and dehydrated skin, I fully expected myself to love The Moisturising Cream. But now that I have had a good test of both products, you would be surprised at my verdict – I certainly was!
Green People SPF25 Sun Lotion
Overall Performance: 8/10
Price: £5 for 20ml; £9.95 for 50ml
When it comes to SPF, there are two types of beauties out there. Those keen peepz who apply SPF every single day without fail, and those who prefer to skip on the sunscreen and let the skin produce Vit D naturally.
The clue is in the title of this post – I belong to the former category.
Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil
Overall Performance: 8.5/10
Those who practice an all natural skincare regime would already be familiar with the benefits of using an oil on your skin. Contrary to popular beliefs, using an oil will not clog pores. Rather, it could reduce the over-production of oil which is often a result of the skin being too dry. If you, like me, are suffering from extremely dry skin but would occasionally get a shinny forehead – trust me, oils are now your new best friend.
La Potion Infinie
Overall Performance: 6/10
I am always a sucker for expensive, luxurious skincare. When I first came across Argentum Apothecary’s La Potion Infinie, I was basically salivating to get my paws on it, especially after reading all the rave reviews about it all over the web. It boasts a 99.5% nature derived ingredients – the star of the cream being Silver Hydrosol and DNA HP. La Potion Infinie promises a reduction of breakouts by regulating the skin’s flora, and an increase of the skin’s hydration by carrying 10,000 times its weight in water.
But I’m sad to say that, this cream is not for me.
