We’ve been road-testing a few products to share with you lovely readers…
For intense hydration and skin that is prone to eczema, the Ultra Rich Balm works miracles, and is smooth like satin! We’ve been suffering a little with dry skin around those delicate areas including the eyes, and we haven’t found a better product than this balm to soothe those sore patches and protect against the elements. An absolute staple product we can’t live without now.
This double-action cleanser works to remove makeup and provide your skin with rehydration. The 100% natural formula includes purifying and calming lavender, cleansing castor bean oil and hydrating vitamin E. Leaving your skin silky soft, clean and moisturised! We’ll take it.
This extra-strength toner works hard to not only gently cleanse your skin but also balance the skins natural acid. Particularly useful for those with rosacea, the natural, organic formula regenerates, hydrates and soothes the skin whilst calming any redness. A great product that can be used on-the-go with a quick spritz. The reviews speak for themself!
As well as mastering natural, organic skincare, Odylique are also home to an impressive makeup range. Did you know their makeup is the first EVER to be approved by Fairtrade Foundation? The luxe collection of lipsticks, eye pencils, mascara and pressed eye shadows are all 100% organic and sustainably formulated., which we *love*. The mineral based makeup uses the finest vitamin-rich, organic plants and took mother and daughter duo Margaret and Abi three years to perfect. Free from any toxic ingredients, the mineral based lipstick has become our new fave and we can’t wait to rock a few different shades this summer!
