In line with this month’s Blooming Marvellous April box, we’ve been looking to botanicals to inspire our beauty routines – and we know that natural products are something that you lot always want more of, too! Thankfully, discovering awesome natural products that really work is no longer a struggle with a whole array of incredible brands creating amazing hard-working collections from plant and mineral-based ingredients. These are the ones that have inspired us to carve out a permanent spot for natural beauty in our daily routines…
If You Want Clinically Tested Anti-Ageing Results: REN
Having spent the past 15 years perfecting its targeted formulas for dryness, acne, and early signs of aging by sourcing powerful, naturally derived active ingredients, REN is one brand that we know we can rely on when it comes to serious skincare. Packed with ingredients like papaya enzymes and liquorice extract, these are the products to reach for when you need results. The REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask is the perfect tool for battling early signs of ageing, brightening dull, blah skin with exfoliating fruit acids.
If You Want Pigmented, Kind-To-Skin Make-Up: Wild About Beauty
The brainchild of TV personality Louise Redknapp and international make-up artist Kim Jacob, this brand has seriously high standards when it comes to ingredients. Not only is the entire range paraben-free but all of the products contain awesome skin-loving botanicals like winter cherry extract, German chamomile, and organic rose water. We won’t go anywhere without the Wild About Beauty Multi Purpose Tint – it’s enriched with vitamins A and E and can be worn on cheeks and lips.
If You Want Luxurious Formulas for Sensitive Skin: Balance Me
This British brand caters for a whole range of skin types, but it’s their blend of hi-tech formulations, naturally active ingredients, and aromatherapy-inspired aromas that make their products an ideal choice for more sensitive types. From the Balance Me Cleanse & Smooth Face Balm, packed with gentle oatmeal and shea butter, to their Radiance Face Oil you can custom-make a daily routine to restore a healthy complexion.
If You Want a to Take a Totally Non-Toxic Shower: Cowshed
Forget a one-product-fits-all approach to pampering, Cowshed’s body washes and lotions are created in a range of ‘moods’ so you can find the solution to however you’re feeling. Made in England, their award-winning products rely on the very best organic and wildcrafted plant extracts, as well as a whole host of essential oil extracts, to cleanse and soothe. We love the Cowshed Knackered Cow Relaxing Bath & Shower Gel which is packed with lavender and eucalyptus to calm your body and mind.
If You Want Salon-Calibre Plant-Sourced Haircare: Philip B
As one of Hollywood’s most distinguished hair treatment experts, Philip B has received international praise for this unique approach to hair and scalp treatments (and who are we to disagree with his celebrity clients?!). From the shampoos to the styling products, each blend is based on pure botanicals and concentrated essential oils to transform your locks from root to tip. For days when you want a really deep-down cleanse, without irritating your scalp, try the Philip B Peppermint and Avocado Volumizing & Clarifying Shampoo.
