1&2. Anumi Volumise Shampoo & Conditioner
Give fine, limp locks a boost with this 100% organic treatment shampoo and conditioner by Anumi. Great for thinning hair, dandruff and itchy scalp conditions, as well as preventing split ends, the Volumising Shampoo is enriched with natural hair growth stimulators, capsicum and menthol, to help you achieve lush lengths. Follow with the conditioner, formulated with the non-toxic goodness of chamomile, hop and nettle extracts, for a shiny, bouncy mane.
2. Cocofixation Facial Wipes
We’re not first to admit we’re kind of obsessed with coconut-based skincare, so it's no suprise when we came across this natural skincare brand. As well as being gorgeous to use and perfect for all skin types, the Cocofixation Facial Wipes contain 100% organic coconut oil and are made with 100% bamboo material. Not to mention they are vegan friendly and are 100% cruelty free. Their lazy-girl Face Wipes with coconut oil will make cleansing time your favourite time. Promise.
3. LUSH Lipstick
For a low-key, springtime makeup look, nothing beats a healthy, dewy complexion, coat of inky mascara and a vibrant slick of lippie. Handmade fresh at their Sydney kitchens, the LUSH range of vegan lipsticks come in a bunch of bold colours, and are made with the nourishing goodness of organic jojoba oil, rose wax and candelilla wax. The colour is long-wearing, and lips are left soft, hydrated and smoochable.
4. Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration Nourishing Facial Water
Restore lost moisture to parched winter skin with this light but deeply hydrating facial water from cult beauty brand, Burt’s Bees. 99% natural and free from parabens, phthalates, petrolatum and SLS, it’s non-greasy and absorbs in an instant. Formulated with clary sage, this nourishing facial water should be the first stage in your post-cleansing routine. Follow with moisturiser for a smooth, glowing complexion.
5. Rasasara Skinfood Pitta Hydrating Mist
Another super-hydrator, this calming mist from Ayurvedic skincare brand Rasasara Skinfood is both a pH-balancing toner, and moisturising mist. Suitable for combination to sensitive skin types, the fragrant blend of rosewater, jasmine and moonstone is a heavenly treat for irritated faces. Reduce redness, heat and inflammation from sunburn, rosacea and more, while soothing the emotions and balancing the fiery pitta dosha.
6. Natural Instinct Dark Circle & Wrinkle Correction Eye Crème
Formulated with powerful plant-derived ingredients including coffee seed oil and aloe vera, this soothing and smoothing eye crème is a triple threat for puffy, tired and dehydrated eyes. Like all Natural Instinct products, it’s 100% free of toxic sulphates, parabens and more than 400 chemicals. Apply twice daily for younger looking peepers.
7. St. Tropez Self Tan Express Bronzing Mousse
Granted it’s not 100% natural, but we can never go past St. Tropez for an oh-so-realistic, long-lasting faux glow. The new Self Tan Express Bronzing Mousse is our top home tanning pick as it develops in as little as one measly hour. How’s that for convenience? The tanning agent used is 100% natural and Ecocert approved, and all St. Tropez products are paraben-free and never tested on our furry friends.
8. Nair Mini Wax Strips
Enriched with rice bran oil and cherry blossom extract, these new mini wax strips from Nair are a sensitive skin’s BFF. Use on the face, bikini area and underarms for fast at-home hair-removal, without the irritation.
