grown alchemist

It’s beauty review friday and what a week it has been!

I was at Priceline a couple of weeks ago making the most of the 40% off skin care sale when I came across this brand. Grown Alchemist, a new range of organic skin case, has become my new favourite brand.

After 20 minutes of staring at all the products, I finally came to a decision. I went home with the following:
– Hand Wash: Sweet Orange, Sedarwood & Sage
– Hand Cream: Vanilla & Orange Peel
Antioxidant Treatment Serum: Rosehip & Camellia Seed

I’d always pictured that perfect white bathroom with Aesop products at the sink but this will do, for now. Some might think, why would you pay $30 for a hand wash? Good question, even my mum asked me. But, at 40%, I just wanted to give it a go. So many hand washes dry my skin out and I hate the feeling afterwards. With this hand wash, it’s like I don’t even need the hand cream. However, the two are a match made in heaven! I have never been so impressed with a hand wash & cream duo before. It’s so rare for me to find one that actually keeps my hands soft and nice to touch!

I’ve been having a little bit of trouble with my skin lately, especially my forehead. I’ve been looking for that one item that just makes it all better and I’ll be honest, I think I’ve finally found it!
It’s taken a few years to get a skin care routine that actually works wonders for me. My skin is a combination and very sensitive so I have lots of trouble with the typical recommendations like proactiv, nutrimetics, dermalogica and the like. I gave the Antioxidant Treatment Serum a go and I was amazed from day one! I’ve heard many things about Rosehip Oil and I’ve always wanted to give it a go. Rosehip Oil is known for it’s healing powers that deeply nourish the skin as it’s filled with fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants. It’s said to help with uneven skin tone, blemishes, dry skin and skin suppleness. I can vow. I usually wake up in the morning with pink cheeks and a completely uneven skin tone!

With Love,
