Dr Alkaitis Organic Replenishing Serum Review | A Natural Skin Balancer

Dr Alkaitis Organic Replenishing Serum

Dr Alkaitis Organic Replenishing Serum

Overall Performance: 9.5/10 (scored as a toner)

Price: £43.50

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!

Overall Performance: 5.5/10

Price: £125 for the Mia 2; £155 for the new Aria

I’m sure by now, everyone remotely interested in the beauty industry would have heard of the Clarisonic. Since the new Clarisonic Aria has just launched into the market, I felt that it is timely to write this post. From the low ratings above, I’m sure you can tell that the Clarisonic and I do not get on well.

The sad truth is – the Clarisonic is just way too harsh for my skin, especially for everyday use.

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.

The Beginning of a Green Revolution

It all started when I realised that my face has become extremely sensitive. I was prone to rashes that was red and blotchy and, no matter what I do, they just wouldn’t go away!

I thought this was strange as I was a skincare addict – I layered on around seven different products on my face every day and night. I would spend more than a hundred pounds for a product, given that they are well acclaimed and backed by thousands of positive reviews. The brands that I have tried include (but not limited to): Emma Hardie, Eve Lom, La Mer, Alpha-H, Paula’s Choice, Skinceuticals, Estee Lauder, Shu Uemura, Roc, doctor prescribed retinal,Biologique Recherche P50/ Pixi’s Glow Tonic etc.

At first I thought the culprit was in my everyday makeup. I decided to switch my concealer and powder to an all-natural alternative, and I chose RMS beauty. Using all-natural makeup for the first time felt wonderful on my skin. Their performance was even better than the Mac/ Laura Mercier products that I was used to. I was ecstatic – naturally, I did more research on the green beauty industry and found that most of the skincare products I was using was non-natural. Ingredients like Parabens, Propylene Glycol, and Urea are all chemicals that were found in my skincare routine, which could cause adverse reactions to the skin.

This is a chart that I always refer to when I do my skincare shopping:

Armed with new knowledge, I switched up my entire skincare and beauty cupboards to all-natural products. I have had so much great results that I have never looked back since. My face is now healthy, comfortable and well balanced.

This revelation was so pivoting that I wanted to share with the world the pure goodness of an all-natural lifestyle. Too little people are aware of the toxins we put on our faces on a daily basis. This blog aims to promote the beauty of going back to the basics, and to help new converters choose the right all-natural products for their skin.
