Borealis Organic Skincare

  blog imageWith the core principle of letting ‘nature nurture your skin’, the Borealis Organic Skincare range is a popular choice for The Amazing Blog girls. Originating in the Isle of Skye over 20 years ago, the brand has journeyed a long way and now offer plenty of lovely and natural skincare products. We have been trying out the Palmarosa Exfoliating Facial Scrub, Wild Rose Night Cream and the Cranberry & Q10 Eye Repair Cream.

The Palmarosa Exfoliating Facial Scrub is suitable for both men and women which will make a great addition to the bathroom for all to enjoy. Borealis enjoy every part of making their products and create them in small batches to ensure the best possible care goes into their manufacturing. Everything they make is hand blended, including this Beauty Award winning Scrub. In 2012 it was winner of the Green Parent Natural Beauty Awards. At £18.50 I also think its really great value for money because it's suitable for all skin types so can be shared in the family bathroom to help cleanse and revitalise everyone's skin. There is Safflower Oil and Omega 6 & 3 to provide nourishment and protection for even the most delicate of skin. This unique inclusion of softening ingredients mean the scrub can be used be those of us with sensitive skin, which I have. I often avoid scrubs because they will leave me with blemishes and irritated skin because of the harsh texture. This scrub was far less aggravating but still felt like it was clearing my pores and removing any dead skin cells. The Ylang Ylang adds an exotic fragrance making the scrub pleasant to experience even after you have washed it off. You can purchase it here.

The Wild Rose Night Cream is another organic addition to the collection which has multiple benefits for the skin, working through the night to clear up imperfections and any damaged patches. The Organic Rose Water can help to reduce inflammation, redness or itching. This is a really great calming product for anyone who has sensitive skin that can become inflamed after washing. The ingredients also mean it's effective in treating thread veins and wrinkled skin.  The infusion of Rose Maroc adds a wonderful protective element to the cream so you’re in good hands all night. It also smells lovely. This cream is £16.50 and can be found here. We have also been trying out the Cranberry & Q10 Eye Repair Cream. This luxury eye cream is beautifully light and easy to blend into your skin. It’s filled with anti-oxidants and Q10 to minimise the effect of aging which can start to show around the eyes. The ingredients are all soft, as with the scrub, so it won’t irritate the sensitive skin we all have around our eyes. This is a comforting, hand blended cream with effective and fast results. The Vitamin E and Q10 in the formula help to minimise fine lines and keep you looking young and fresh! It’s not a heavy cream so it doesn’t sit with a dewy texture on top of your skin. It is £25.00 and can be found on their website.
