I am a self diagnosed skincare addict. Whilst I enjoy high end skincare, I also love discovering new brands and recently it's important to me that my skincare is actually good for my skin long term. I try and introduce natural skincare to my routine as much as possible and recently I did some damage on my favourite online store that specialises in natural and organic products.
Quick word about the website itself. The Natural Skincare is ran by a lovely Justyna, who's goal is to introduce affordable skincare brands in to UK market. And she knows her stuff! We've met online few months back and I've been obsessed with her store. I now order there exclusively, as there are a lot of amazing brands and products plus it's super affordable too! What I love about the store are the product descriptions, which tell me not only an ingredient list but also suggest what skin types or skin concerns each product is for! If you haven't already visit her page on Facebook now (CLICK HERE) and receive 5% discount code if you like the page! Talk about saving :) Plus enjoy a FREE mask with any purchase over £20.00 and FREE delivery with purchases over £40.00. In my experience the package arrives within 3 days, the products are packed safe and you also get a lot of samples :)
*Disclaimer: I ordered most of the bits myself, but they are two products I was sent to test. These will be marked with *** for your convenience.*
Back to the haul itself. There were few bits I needed replacing so I'll start with the basic stuff. Ecolab Hawaii Shower Oil replaces my current bath time favourite from the same brand. It's such a great shower oil, it cleanses and moisturises at the same time and both me & mom can't imagine using anything else. Plus this stuff lasts forever, as you only need a tiny bit. I always use a special gel for my intimate needs and this time I'm trying Vianek Intimate Moisturising Gel. I used my my Sylveco one recently and was in desperate need of a new intimate wash. I hope it'll be as good, if not better. I'll probably talk about it in the empties once I'm done with it, so watch this space.
I was running dangerously low on my Ecolab Rejuvenating Face Tonic (POST) so I decided to order some. This time I decided on two new to me tonics. First up Sylveco Hibiscus Face Tonic, which meant to be amazing for dry and sensitive skin. I plan to use it at night or with sheet mask as a treatment. Secondly I picked up Vianek Moisturising Tonic Mist, which I'm going to use for my morning toner needs, as it not only tones but also refreshes due to the mist application. I'm really looking forward tho trying this duo, as I've heard great things!
Both me and mom were running low on skin serums and having spoken to Justyna I decided to try two from the website. First up Resibo Smoothing Face Serum isn't what I call cheap and at £25.00 a bottle I expect great things from it! It came highly recommended as Botox in a bottle and with key ingredients like Marula oil, buriti oil, vitamin C, Stoechiol - butterfly lavender erextract, Lakesis - oil from ''crystal tears'' of Pistacia lentiscus tree, I hope it won't disappoint. The pro ingredient is Lakesis, or an oil of ''crystal tears'' of Pistacia lentiscus tree, cultivated on Greek island of Chois. It reactivates youth proteins - KLOTHO and synthesis of fibres strengthening the skin, which in turn regains its density and looks fuller and firmer.
I also picked up a brand new serum from Biolaven. Biolaven Anti Wrinkle Serum For Face and Neck. It contains soybean oil, grapeseed oil, argan oil and vegetable squalene which are responsible for its moisturising and smoothing effect, also Vitamin E, which is a natural antioxidant, slows the aging process of the skin and reduces the effects of harmful external factors. I have high hopes as its described to even out the skin tone & support the process of rebuilding collagen and elastin.
I mentioned to Justyna that my Mom's looking for a good facial oil for mature skin and she kindly sent us Olvita Rosehip Seed Oil*** to try. This is meant for dry, sensitive and mature skin. Super excited to try it and I will be using it alongside mom to see if it works as well as it promises. I love a good facial oil!
I was also kindly gifted Sylveco Birch and Seabuckthorn Face Cream with Botulin*** and I'm super happy about it, as it came highly recommended by my friend and a fellow blogger Anna. She has her Youtube channel and you can find her HERE. Her channel is in Polish and I know many of my readers are so, if you're on a lookout for a niche beauty channel with super honest reviews, check Ania's out! Back to the cream itself. The main active ingredients - betulin and betulinic acid, derived from birch bark - soothe and regenerate the skin. The cream is enriched with seabuckthorn oil, which contains antioxidants: vitamin C and carotenoids, which are nutritious, healing and protection, support natural cell renewal. The promise is that the cream will help reduce the minor wrinkles, slow down the aging process and improve resistance to harmful external factors. I have high hopes for it as Anna recently compared it to Omorovicza Rejuvenating Night Cream and the difference in price for these two are massive!
Last but not least I've ordered some face masks from a renowned natural skincare brand Tołpa. I haven't seen it available in UK yet, so I was super excited to try them. I ordered four sets and I plan on testing them soon. All the masks contain product for two uses. I ordered Tołpa Green - Regenerating mask for dilated capillaries. I battle deleted capillaries so I'm looking forward to seeing if this mask improves the appearance of my skin. I also got Tołpa Dermo Face - Provivo 35+ - Restoring skin's youth glow-mask - face, neck, decollete and bust. I'm all about that radiance and glow so have high hopes for this mask! Tołpa Dermo Face - Rosacal. Strengthening-soothing bandage-mask - face, neck and decollate is meant to help with skin sensitivity and also reduce redness so it's up my street for sure. Lastly I ordered a Tołpa Dermo Face - Stimular 40+ - Anti-wrinkle firming mask-concentrate - Face, neck, decollete and bust for my mom as she enjoys a good face mask and was intrigued by the promises this product makes. It promises to firm the skin and reduces wrinkles as well as restoring elasticity and flexibility. I will report back on all of the above for sure. It's worth mentioning that all Tołpa skincare comes without artificial colourings (0%), pegs, silicones, paraffin oil, preservatives, parabens and formaldehyde donors!!!
