NATURAL SKINCARE TALK

I don't think we have one of these yet... But, if I'm wrong, please do correct me.

 

I've been wanting to make this thread for a while now, but as it usually is... Life got and gets in the way. But, better late than never, huh?

 

I've been enjoying many natural skincare products for the last 15 years or so, on and off ( mainly facial oils and balms, but masks, treatments, and body oils and balms, as well. ) I even used to make my own for years ( years ago ) as good natural skincare products were not a very easy thing to obtain. You'd have to try and hunt down quality ingredients and make stuff yourself most of the time. And, that was quite a task! It makes me happy to see that there is so many wonderful products widely and easily available lately. It makes things so much easier! Smiley Happy

 

Natural skincare performs better for me personally. I love and enjoy using it. My skin adores it. I love the idea of it and behind it. So, I wanted to make a place for us natural skincare lovers to talk about anything natural skincare as I see there are many others out there that are interested, or already in love with it, as well. So why not have our own little place on here? Smiley Happy So we can share our experiences ( good and/or bad ), loves, favorite products, favorite brands and their news/new launches, discus things, share our daily routines, talk DIYs if anyone is into that, why not? Anything really.

 

By "natural" skincare here I'm talking about skincare made mostly or completely of ingredients available in nature, like plant-derived ingredients, minerals... You know, the whole nine. Smiley Wink

 

Anyway - feel free to join in! You don't have to be a natural skincare lover exclusively. Everybody's welcomed!

 

A word of caution... For those who are new to natural skincare, proceed with caution. Inform and educate yourself really well on everything you are interested in trying and putting on your skin. Natural does not mean it won't hurt you! And, it certainly doesn't mean it's safe. Some natural ingredients can be irritating for some people. Go with what's good for you, don't force anything on your skin just because someone said it is good. Do patch tests. Be smart. People prone to allergies should pay careful attention to what they use on their skin.

 

 P.S. I am not completely and 100% natural, nor I imagine I ever will be as I do love me some other stuff, as well. But mostly, yes.

RE: NATURAL SKINCARE TALK

I’m looking for a new eye cream with a focus on treating fine lines. I am allergic to almond oil and synthetic vitamin C , other than that I’m open to all suggestions either from Sephora or else where. Please share if you have any favourites. TA 😘

Re: RE: NATURAL SKINCARE TALK

@fatimamummy , it is not for treating fine lines per se, but a lovely BTer recommended Consonant Hydrextreme to me as she loves and uses it under her eyes... and among other things it does, I absolutely love it for the fine lines I have around my eyes. It is so hydrating and lovely, it plumps my skin diminishing those lines so beautifully, it is amazing. It is very light, as well, which is nice for delicate eye area. It can be used as serum, booster, or on its own. I have dry-ish skin, so I like to apply it all over my face, and then I follow with my moisturizer or oils. Or both. But so many times, I don't even need anything else over it when I apply it under my eyes. If you still need something more concrete, you can layer it with this. Hope this helps. 

Re: RE: NATURAL SKINCARE TALK

Thank you @Magrathea I ended up buying Murad resurgence renewing eye cream. I think I may have some samples of Hydrextreme somewhere so I’ll try it around eye area to see how it works for me 🙂

Re: NATURAL SKINCARE TALK

Looks like a new brand called Naturally Serious has been added to Sephora. There aren't any products listed yet (looks like the true launch is 8/7) but their website has a list of the products they make:

Re: NATURAL SKINCARE TALK

Anthropologie seems to be phasing out their de Mamiel stock -- they have the entire line at roughly 40% off original prices, plus there is an additional 25% discount on sale beauty items.

 

I'm so tempted to purchase Dewy Face Mist and the Brightening Cleanse & Exfoliating powder cleanser!  Has anybody tried these and can provide feedback?  Smiley Happy

Re: NATURAL SKINCARE TALK

@MlleCC I’ve tried both.

 

i quite like the powder cleanser; it’s one of the nicer ones I’ve tried. Like most, you can adjust how thin or thick by how much water you add. It washes away cleanly and leaves my skin feeling fresh.

 

im kind of indifferent to the dewy facial mist. It didn’t wow me but there was nothing wrong with it either. 

Re: NATURAL SKINCARE TALK

@Mochapj:  Thanks for sharing your thoughts!  Biting the bullet and ordering both.  I love powder cleansers and am looking forward to trying de Mamiel's version; it's a shame that more brands don't make them, after they had their 15 min. of fame a couple of years ago.  

Re: NATURAL SKINCARE TALK

agree @MlleCC ! i wish more brands would make them; they're so convenient, especially for travel.

RE: Re: NATURAL SKINCARE TALK

I just got mine from the detox market! It sinks in really nicely and seems to make my lipstick stay put a little extra. I own probably four or five of their targeted facial boosters, everything from this brand sinks in so beautifully and makes you glow!!

Re: NATURAL SKINCARE TALK

@veronika23 @Llgc I picked up the Aventurine lip serum over the weekend.

 

It feels pretty similar to the Hourglass lip oil, maybe a touch thinner. The rollerball feels very cooling on the lips, which is nice but it has menthol in it as well so that gives it a bit of tingle that I'm not crazy about.

 

I haven't noticed any particular improvements yet but I'm really not expecting much more than surface level hydration, tbh.

Re: NATURAL SKINCARE TALK

@Mochapj thank you for the review! I don’t feel so bad now for missing it when I made my detox order. Minty lip products for hydration aren’t my favourite. Let me know though if you find it knocks your socks off with extended usage! 

Re: NATURAL SKINCARE TALK

Thank you for the review @Mochapj with summer here I was thinking to pick it for my dehydrated lips but I’m not a fan of scent and tingling in lip products. I guess I have to stick with the Laneige sleeping mask. That does have a strong strawberry scent but somehow strawberry is comparatively bearable.
