Since I was busy with all the wedding prep, I haven’t been blogging as much as usual but now I’m back! I also have missed quite a few new releases as I was away so I thought I’d share a few new green beauty releases from the last month or so…
Tropic Hair have bought out a new range of haircare products which I’m excited about. I’ve been loving Tropic products recently! I got my hands on their Clarifying Hair Wash and the Hair Smooth Radiance Oil which I’m looking forward to trying. I don’t use conditioner anymore so sometimes my hair can be a little frizzy and so I think the oil will be perfect for using as and when I need it – it can be used on wet hair, before blow-drying, as a treatment or simply after styling as a finishing oil.
Kure Bazaar have released a few new polishes for SS18 and I was sent two shades; Sunset & Cosmos. I love Kure’s range of colours and they are now all up to 90% natural, 10-free and they have also eliminated the use of benzophenone 1-3 which has been a talking point for debates recently in the green beauty world. I’ve been loving wearing Sunset, it’s the perfect Summer shade!
Some of you may know that I collaborated with Joanna from Mallow & White on the Blossom Balm which is stocked at Nectar & Bumble which is so incredible and exciting. Joanna has now released three brand new balms to go alongside her beautiful collection. I got my hands on the Restore Balm which is a blend of 6 ingredients; shea butter, grapeseed oil, pomegranate oil and geranium, lavender & orange essential oils. It is for use on the hands & body for specially dry areas that need a bit of nourishing. This was one of the first products that Joanna ever made so it’s lovely to see it making a comeback since her re-launch a couple of years back.
Antipodes have launched a brand new product – Halo Face Mask which is a mud mask that claims to brighten and lift skin. It is infused with antioxidant compound Vinanza® grape and kiwi which works to lighten skin and even skin-tone as well as volcanic mud from New Zealand & peony which I have never seen in any of my skincare products before! It’s a really nice mask – nice and thick so you get a really nice layer of mask on your skin. It dries fairly quickly and it can be a bit of a pain to remove if you leave it on but I think it’s a lovely mask on first impressions.
The newest release I’ve discovered is the Sister & Co Oil. It’s called the True Cleanse Cleansing Oil and is a blend of organic cold-pressed apricot, jojoba and grape oils infused with rose otto and frankincense. The oil is 100% natural, vegetarian, vegan, gluten & dairy free, made with certified organic ingredients. It comes with an organic cloth to remove the oil after use and it works to take of makeup & get rid of impurities in the skin.
And last but not least isn’t exactly a new release product-wise but last week I received a lovely parcel from Alchemy Oils who have launched their new packaging for their hair oils! If you head over to my Instagram story highlights “in the post” (@thisnaturalbee) you’ll see the rest of the parcel which was one of the loveliest PR parcels I’ve ever received – full of everything I need for a relaxing night in for some “me time”. The new packaging features a dropper making it a whole lot easier to distribute and use the Grapefruit Hair Remedy Oil.
