Out with the old cosmetics and in with the new 2012 natural cosmetics trend !
So we are all realising that natural ingredient cosmetics are the way forward…but with our drawers and cupboards filled with excess amounts of chemical filled products such as The Body Shop, Nivea and Olay and so on, where do we start ?
Well, of course, you can’t just throw all your high street branded cosmetics in the bin after spending a fair bit of cash buying them, right ?
Natural Cosmetics Boutique provides a solution to begin your natural cosmetic skincare & makeup journey…
If you haven’t got a great deal of money or you’ve recently spent a bit of money on chemical cosmetics then the best way to go natural is take it step by step; a gradual switch from chemical cosmetics to natural cosmetics. Either switch to natural cosmetics when you run out of what you are using now or buy natural products two by two whenever you can afford them…the products which are featured in my blog are less than £20 so are affordable and of great quality.
Here is a detailed two step guide to start you off:
1. Natural Moisturiser/ Serum – The first and the most essential product you should switch to is a natural ingredient moisturiser/ serum (a serum is a deep replenishing moisturiser that comes in the form of an oil rather than a cream- it travels deeper into the skin due to its liquid form and therefore, in my opinion, it works better than a cream). I use ‘Botanicals’ Organic Face Serum everyday after I shower as my skin gets tight and dry, when I use this serum my skin is nourished and can then apply my makeup without getting a peeling ‘gritty’ makeup look that is rather unattractive !
This serum is the dearest product featured on my post but it lasts a very long time, I am only half way through one I bought last Spring and I use it everyday !
2. Natural Cleanser/ Makeup Remover– a natural ingredient cleanser is a product you will treasure ! The one I use is ‘Botanicals’ Organic Cleansing Melt which just melts your makeup away and kindly soothes and cleans off any impurities on your skin. It is divine and never leaves your eyes or face feeling stingy like makeup wipes do !
This cleanser is half full, I use it all the time and I bought it a year ago so it goes a long way !
…To Be Continued !
