Beauty: Grown Alchemist Hydra-Repair Day Cream & Vanilla Lip Balm
Hello! From time to time I like to mix it up on this blog, I thought today I would review two new products I bought from Grown Alchemist via Feel Unique. It’s been a recent mission of mine to invest more into my skincare regime. I was drawn towards the Grown Alchemist brand for several reasons, firstly they are totally cruelty free which is fantastic, they also use organic ingredients and stay away from anything nasty. And I would be lying if I said I wasn’t also drawn to the packaging, it’s simple and minimal which ticks my boxes!
The hydra-repair day cream is camellia and geranium blossom, it has a lovely light floral scent, not too strong. It glided on my face, and felt lovely and silky, it didn’t leave a greasy feel either like some do and so far it hasn’t irritated my skin whatsoever. It leaves my skin feeling dewy and acts as a nice pre-makeup base. I will definitely be re-buying.
I’ve suffered with a cold and sore throat recently which inevitably leads to horrible chapped lips. My regular lip balms weren’t doing the trick, in fact I felt like they were doing the opposite so I splashed out a bit more than usual. The scent is pure watermelon, so if you don’t like watermelons steer clear! I personally like it and the product has vastly improved my cracked lips, they feel nourished and healthy once more!
Next up on my hit-list is a face mask from the range, but do let me know of any other brands I should give a go!
