July beauty faves

1woman-rugged-up-in-scarf-during-winter_article_newWinter.. It’s cold.  You could choose to hide yourself behind thick scarves and woollen beanies, or… you could choose to rock out your winter skin with these latest favourites I am in love with!!

ZWENA OIL OF MORROCCO 100% pure organic Argan oil

Sourced by the Berber women in Morocco, this fair-trade oil is pure gold.  Many women have tried and loved the benefits of “Moroccanoil” products on their hair. Not many have looked closely at the ingredients.  Cyclomethicone, Dimethicone and many others that you can’t pronounce.  The Argan Oil it contains sure does coat our hair in shine but at what cost to our health.  Step in Zwena.  This 100% pure organic Argan Oil is the real deal but without the frills.  Used on your hair and your skin, this oil is anti-inflammatory, anti-aging and filled with antioxidants to reduce the harshness of winter.  It’s not cheap, but a little goes a long way.  A truly beautiful and luxurious oil.

ELUSYION Liquid Mineral Foundation

This vegan and cruelty-free foundation is fabulous and even better is that it is made right here in Australia.  I find this foundation can be used lightly or heavier depending on the coverage required.  With ingredients like Rose water, Aloe Leaf extract and Jojoba, Olive and Coconut oils it helps to reduce the drying effects of winter.  I was torn between Elusyion and Inika foundations but Elusyion had the perfect match for my skin.  I am so happy with it.  It covers every flaw and looks so natural that my husband doesn’t even know I am wearing make-up!

100% PURE Fruit Pigmented Black Tea Mascara – Black

You all know how much I rave about Irene from Nourished Life!  Well this is another little beauty that she stocks in her store.  Most toxic free mascaras that I have tried have been great apart from the fact that you end up wearing them down your cheeks!!  This one is sooo much better!  For one, it’s water resistant and smudge proof.  Two, it does not contain any synthetic chemicals, chemical preservatives, artificial colours or fragrances or any other harsh toxins in it’s ingredients list.  Three, it’s filled with lash conditioning ProVitamin B5, Vitamin E, Oat and Wheat proteins.  It’s a staple in my everyday morning routine.

And then, at the end of the day, I am currently using my ENJO daily face off.  With water alone and a very gentle circular motion, this little blue microfibre pad amazingly removes every bit of makeup and oil from my skin.  It is so easy that I just use it in the shower.  You will see the make up come off with every wipe!  No cleanser necessary!  Brilliant!! After each use I just wash it with a drop of castille soap and then gently roll it to remove excess water.  It’s now ready for tomorrow’s use.
