Friday Favourites - Organic Skincare

Here at The Amazing Blog we are all about natural beauty and we strive to find the best products to keep our skin youthful and healthy all year round.  It’s important to find the right beauty product for your skin whilst avoiding those packed full of nasty chemicals. So, we’ve done the legwork and collated a list of some of our favourite organic beauty products.

You may recognise London Ethnic as a London-based fashion label.  However, we were excited to discover that they recently launched their debut beauty range.  The products are made using nourishing organic ingredients and pure botanical actives, and the best thing about them is that they’re free from parabens and artificial preservatives.  We particularly love their Warming Bath Oil.  It has a delicate, relaxing scent and leaves our skin feeling soft, refreshed and revitalised. If you like the sound of this you can pick up your own online here for £32, as well as checking out the rest of their range.

Another fabulous brand, Unica, pride themselves on being 100% organic and natural.  Sonia, the brand’s founder, is passionate about the healing power of herbs and oils after suffering with skin issues herself.  Through making her own products, she gradually began to heal and wanted to share her fantastic products with the world. Our stand-out product was the Kiss It Better Moisturiser which is suitable for even the most sensitive skin.  The formula includes Nilotica Shea Butter to keep skin moisturised, Rosehip Oil and Calendula, all of which reduce itching, promote healing and relieve the symptoms of eczema, psoriasis, and inflamed skin.  Get it here for £12.95.

Terre Verdi proudly produce ethically-sourced products made from natural ingredients and endeavor to use as many organic ingredients as they can.  Honouring founder, Alessandra de Gregorio’s Sicilian roots, the brand have a stunning range of products for both face and body. Our favourites are the Aloe Toner and Moisturiser.  The toner is great at removing any residual make-up and dirt left after cleansing, and has a powerful combination of Aloe Vera and gentle Rose Water to help heal, protect and fight signs of ageing.  Their Face Moisturiser also combines the properties of soothing Aloe Vera with those of pro-youth Apricot Kernel Oil, perfect for hydrating the skin. And it’s not just for women - it’s fantastic as an after-shave too!  Treat yourself to the Terre Verdi Toner and Moisturiser here for £14 and £15 respectively.

Not far from Sicily, Mille Ulivi is the love child of a team of Italian biologists and cosmetologists. The 100% natural and innovative formulas combine the antioxidant power of Extra Virgin Olive Oil with active ingredients derived from the olive tree, to prevent skin aging. We fell in love with their Nourishing Day Cream. The beautiful recycled wooden packaging immediately sets this apart from other products in its category, but the real beauty is inside.  It’s rich in natural antioxidants and highly concentrated SWISS Gardenia Stem Cells, which are your best ally against the signs of ageing. What’s more, the light, non-greasy formula, makes it an ideal base for make-up too. You can buy it for £46.05 from their online site here.

Another of our favourite natural brands is Nadeballa. The brand makes products based on the philosophy that your skin needs the right ingredients to keep it looking its best. This is a sentiment that we can wholly get on board with, so when they sent over their Night Replenishing Cream, we were over the moon.  With a plethora of nourishing ingredients, including Almond Oil and Apricot Kernel Oil, it’s packed with the essential vitamins your skin needs. It’s great for delivering an extra boost of hydration whilst your body rests and your skin regenerates. We woke up looking younger, with a plumper, smoother looking complexion. It certainly is a great aid for our beloved beauty sleep. You can buy it on Nadeballa’s website for £39.
