Treat Yo’self: 7 Beauty Splurges To Make This Week
Made from au naturale ingredients, we've curated a list of organic skincare for all skin types. Here's one to mother nature!| September 22, 2017
When I was a child, I never knew much about organic products. I always had this naive mindset that organic equals to vegetables and carrots. I didn’t like carrots, so my brain pretty much shut itself down when the word “organic” gets throw at me. If we’re talking about being practical, it’s always easier to pick up a non-organic product from a drugstore vis a vis searching high and low for cruelty-free, vegan and 100 percent natural alternatives. Especially more tempting when said non-organic product works like a charm.
The thing is, there is a way to get to the ethically responsible products that are not only made of stuff that can only do good things for your skin, especially if you have sensitive skin, but also good for the environment and nature at large. That means less or no chemicals with dizzying names, animal testing and excessive packaging.
As the beauty industry takes a more wholesome approach to its products, so comes an increasing variety of responsible organic products, from plant extracts to cold-pressed oils, green tea to avocado, coffee beans to cacao. You’re not alone if you feel just slightly tempted to uh, take a lick. Shop our au naturale edit below. Brownie points to these brands for using sustainable methods!
Kora Organics By Miranda Kerr Cream Cleanser
The moment you reach home, all you want to do is wipe away all the grime and dirt. That’s why the Kora Organics cream cleanser is first on our list. Enriched with noni extract, aloe, sandalwood, avocado, rosehip and macadamia nut oil – these nourishing ingredients are super gentle to the skin. If this cleanser gets us one step closer to achieving Miranda Kerr’s god-sent skin, we are down-under (get it?) for it.
The Ordinary 100% Organic Cold-pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil
The Ordinary has been making rounds with beauty YouTubers and we are not surprised why. Apart from its very affordable no-frills products (this oil costs below $20), this light nutty scent is a cold-pressed blend with organic rose hip oil to hydrate, calm and treat any redness and damaged tissue.
