SKIN CARE REGIME REVIEW
FACE CLEANSING POWDER
FACE CLEANSING POWDER This face cleansing powder is an incredible multi-tasking product that includes oatmeal, neem powder, lemon peel powder, coconut powder, rose petals, wheatgrass powder, tulsi leaf and argiletz green clay to gently cleanse, exfoliate and purify the skin. FIND MORE INFO HERE
MASK AND SPOT TREATMENT You can also use as a spot treatment or face mask: Prepare and apply as for cleansing and leave for 15-20 minutes or until skin begins to feel tight. Wet and rinse mask away thoroughly.
TO USE simply mix a teaspoon of the dry powder into a little water or rosewater mist, which activates and emulsifies the product.
My personal review: I totally love this powder. At first it was a little strange to work with as I am so used to liquid products, though I actually now quite like that its almost like a self care ritual. Its really calming to take an extra minute to yourself creating the paste and consciously giving your face a massage to ensure that its fully cleansed. It leaves my skin feeling lightly exfoliated and silky smooth! It really does work magic on the skin.
PURE HYDROSOL TONER
PURE HYDROSOL TONER is made with pure, certified organic hydrosols, rose is balanced beautifully by melissa's citrus, giving a delightful uplifting scent. Use after cleansing to gently tone, refresh and balance.
TO USE Apply liberally after cleansing and before applying the Natural Face Oils or Rich Face Cream - it aids the products to spread and be easily absorbed. It also leaves your skin beautifully refreshed.
My Personal Review - Its no secret that I love mists! They help to cleanse, hyrdrate and nourish the skin which is exactly why I can't get enough of them! This toner is really fresh, light weight and only slightly scented, so great for those who have super sensitive skin or just don't like overly scented products. It makes my skin feel soooo freshhh and sooo cleannn.. ;) It's perfect to use after cleansing with the above powder and prior to moisturising.
NATURAL FACE OIL
NATURAL FACE OIL for normal skin contains a blend of unrefined, organic and/or biodynamic oils, specially formulated for normal and combination skin. These oils contain the perfect blend of essential fatty acids, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals to keep skin nourished and vital.
INGREDIENTS (too good not to mention!) Certified biodynamic avocado oil, certified organic grapeseed oil, certified organic jojoba oil, certified organic apricot kernel oil, certified organic macadamia oil, certified organic evening primrose oil, certified organic essential oils of frankincense, geranium and lavender, rosemary leaf extract.
My Personal Review - Truthfully I don't believe there is any better "product" or ingredient that will nourish our skin like natural oils! I LOVE this oil blend (along with the Face Oil suited to DRY SKIN). It's such a beautiful balance of light weight, nourishing oils with healing essential oils that blend into the skin really easily, leaving minimal oily residue, rather just a soft, healthy glow.
* I think these face oils are perfect for those people who might be sensitive to essential oils scents as they are only lightly scented - all being quite earthy as opposed to citrusy.
SESAME + FRANKINCENSE BODY OIL
This oil is a blend of the most nourishing, protective oils, perfect for dry skin that needs an additional nutritional boost together with protection from the elements.
INGREDIENTS Sesame oil, avocado oil, macadamia oil, essential oils of frankincense and rose geranium, rosemary leaf extract.
COCONUT + SANDALWOOD BODY OIL
This oil can be used as an overall body moisturiser, or as a cooling, grounding massage oil. It combines antioxidant-rich virgin coconut oil with vitamin-dense apricot kernel oil, and highly nutritious and anti-aging camellia oil.
INGREDIENTS: Virgin coconut oil, apricot kernel oil, camellia oil, essential oil of sandalwood, rosemary leaf extract.
My Personal Review - I LOVE BODY OILS SO MUCH, so naturally, these body oils are two of my favourite products from the range I have trialled. They are super HEALING, NOURISHING and PROTECTIVE! They smell seriously delicious and provide such a radiant healthy glow. The sesame and frankincense has deep earthy smell (that I love) and the coconut and sandalwood has a slightly sweeter yet equally gorgeous aroma.
This lip balm gently moisturises the lips, leaving a light sheen. Naturally flavoured with the subtle taste of organic coconut , it protects and soothes, promoting optimum health to this delicate area
My personal review - I can't go past a decent lip balm! I use them all-day-every-day so its VITAL that I have a good one at hand. First thing I noticed with this balm is that it smells and tastes seriously delicious, almost like honey.. good enough to eat ;). It provides a beautiful light moisturising gloss on the lips and makes them feel silky and smooth. All in all.. I'm a fan!
A blend of gentle, light, soothing oils to remove all traces of makeup. It may also be used as a light oil cleanser, easily picking up dirt and excess sebum.
INGREDIENTS Certified organic macadamia oil, certified organic apricot kernel oil, certified organic camellia oil and certified organic rosemary leaf extract.
My Personal Review - Oils are hands down the BEST makeup removers for a few reasons. 1. They work, yep they remove makeup, dirt and impurities faster than any other product! 2. They also nourish and hydrate your skin at the same time. 3. They last forever and a day because you only need to use the tiniest amount! The Mokosh makeup remover is a BEAUTIFUL blend of lightweight oils that work like magic in removing makeup. Yet another product I'm loving!
Pssst... Mokosh is also available in handy travel size, so you can test a few products to find your favourites before you commit to the full size (that will last forever! woohoo!).
