I'll be the first to admit that experimenting with current beauty trends, bold makeup and bright colour is super fun (I adore rocking a smokey eye come the weekend, or wearing a pop of colour on my lips to work during the week - hello OCC Lip Tars!) but sometimes it's nice to go back to natural beauty. The concept of natural beauty has inspired this week's Style Sunday - read through for some of my top bb products which are proud to contain natural ingredients kind to not only your body but to Mother Nature too!
1. Natural skin
Good skin forms the base of any look you choose to show off so get it right with these products, bursting with natural ingredients that actually work! Kosmea's Eighth Natural Wonder Revitalising Facial Serum contains the unique hibiscus extract Myoxinol, which has the effect of ‘freezing’ fine lines and wrinkles, giving skin instant youthfulness and vitality. Combined with organic rose hip oil, this duo form nature’s answer to cosmetic surgery! We love OP Therapy's 'Summer Glow' Pineapple and Papaya Sea Salt Scrub which contains small grains of sea salt to purify and exfoliate the skin then papaya and pineapple enzymes naturally smooth and clarify the skin. Finish off with lashes of Sanctum's Body Balm, full of cocoa butter, shea butter and coconut oil to lock in moisture for a radiant, natural glow.
2. Natural hair
With so many fab natural hair products out there, why load up your strands with chemicals and other nasties? We adore Yes to Carrots shampoo and conditioner which are paraben & SLS free and packed with beta-carotene, carrot oil, sweet almond oil, jojoba seed oil, Dead Sea minerals plus more! The natural formula of U Little Beauty's Natural Shine Hair Serum is light, clean, non-greasy, and works double-time with Argan Oil and Macadamia Oil to smooth and tame rebellious locks. Rich in Vitamin E, it strengthens your hair and works to curb frizz and gives hair a healthy shine. For a multi-tasking beauty buy bursting with natural ingredients, check out Jao's Goe Oil which is 100% natural and contains a combination of 28 plant fruit and flower oils and butters. Use on skin for soft smoothness or rub lightly through the ends of hair for texture and moisture.
3. Natural colour
What can be better than highlighting your natural beauty with makeup which contains natural ingredients? Slick on some Eye of Horus Mascara, naturally formulated in the style of the ancient Egyptians with plant based ingredients and waxes including carnauba wax, beeswax, rice bran wax and candelilla wax. Bloom's Cream Blush Duo contains a gorgeous pink blush and shimmery illuminiser enriched with evening primrose oil, jojoba oil and scented with pure lavender essential oil. For the finishing touch, dab on some Silk Oil of Morocco Lip Gloss. Available in seven natural shades, this gloss is infused with certified organic argan oil, which conditions lips while adding shine, and also spearmint oil which is naturally plumps lips (and adds a great taste to boot!)
