Hello Lovelies, welcome to my first ever monthly favourites post! This month I have stumbled upon quite a few little gems that have really stood out to me. Some of which you might already be familiar with, and some I’ve only started using recently (future review candidates? Maybe). Let’s begin!
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.
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.
