I’m practically a curmudgeon when it comes to beauty products. I know what I like and I stick with them. Since going natural a few years ago on skincare, I am forever delighted by the existence of luxe natural & organic beauty site A Beautiful World…
Founder Liz McCarthy does all the legwork – travelling hard (often to New York and LA – dream job much?) to find the best luxe beauty for us eco-bunnies – and applying a very strict criteria to the quality of products she accepts on the site – I’m trying to get the low-down of what ticks all her boxes as I’m guessing I’m not the only one who loves using natural and organic products but is not entirely clued up on it all; some products being minus this and that, others focusing on the organic content and so on.
Anyway, you can rest assured that what you’ll find on the site is pure, pure, pure and very good for your skin. So here’s a little showcase of some of the latest products I’m loving and using. First up, Indie Lee. I had the pleasure of meeting the inspiring Indie last year and her passion for creating products that visibly help with keeping things looking young and plump was so refreshing. And yes, I can attest to the fact the products really do make a marked difference – I use the lavender oil every night and this eye balm and apple serum are real treats. Definitely worth shelling out for.
SW Basics, I was sold on the packaging alone tbh (visual seduction is my weakness) but I love how they narrow it down to the sheerest basic organic ingredients. I first tried their shea butter cream which I got seriously addicted to, the lip balm and now the gorgeous smelling organic rosewater cleanser for those times I can’t be bothered to wash my face with water and coconut oil before bed. Come the morning, when showering, the MU organic rose foaming facewash is my go-to. I just love how the light foam feels in my skin.
Kadalys is an interesting new French brand, which A Beautiful World has recently taken on. You’ve probably seen the sweet smelling banana balm on here before, but I’ve just started testing out their skincare. They have a ‘first wrinkles’ day and night cream which is soft, soothing and seems to be keeping my skin hydrated enough to keep the fine lines at bay for the moment.
And then, finally, hair! Being of the ‘a bun is not a hairstyle, it’s a lifestyle’ ilk, I’m a bit old hat when it comes to styling products (Elnett will forever be my night out zizz) but on freshly washed hair – mine’s quite fine and flyaway – I’ve been giving some body with Feed Your Roots mousse and then a spray of this divine salt spray by love+salt beautifully pinkish from its Himalayan pink salt. Smells totally delicious too as mixed with coconut oil – I reckon that alone makes it the best one out there!
All products kindly sent for review. All opinions and direction my own. Thankyou A Beautiful World, am in heaven!
