Lately, I am very much getting into natural organic cosmetics. The idea of protecting the planet and respecting workers’ rights lead many brands to start switching towards sustainably made bio cosmetics. The movement is finally getting stronger and stronger, both in the fashion and the beauty industry. And there are extra benefits of using these types of products that our skin will thank us for.
I would like to present to you a collection of bio cosmetics from an Italian brand, Aquifolium. Aquifolium has a variety of different products that I wanted to test and try the moment I landed on their website. It only took a few days for their package of natural organic cosmetics to be delivered to my doorstep, waiting for me to unpack it, test the products and write my opinion about them.
Let’s start with their argan body cream. It will nurture, moisturize, hydrate and protect your skin. Argan oil also helps protect the elasticity of your skin making it nice and soft. The smell of the argan body cream is sweet and delightful, a great smell for the fall, and even better for the upcoming winter season when our skin needs some extra care.
The next product is their face exfoliating cream. It’s a delicate natural scrub that will brush away the dead cells’ roughness and flakiness, without irritating the skin. Spread a small amount of the face exfoliating cream on your face and neck, massaging it lightly, and then rinse it with warm water. The recommendation is to repeat the treatment once a week. I already started using exfoliating cream and it really restores radiance to my skin and keeps my face clean.
The milk face cleanser helps to remove make-up and cleanse your skin. It’s a very rich cleanser that I use two times a day, in the morning and in the evening. This milk face cleanser will lift all dirt and residues and leave your skin fresh and soft. The application is easy, just spread and massage into your skin a veil of milk face cleanser on your face and décolleté. Remote it directly with warm water or a cotton pad. Complete the process with your favorite tonic. Even though I already use micellar water for removing make-up and dirt from my skin, I couldn’t skip on testing this product. The milk face cleanser contains sweet almond oil, aloe vera, olive oil and rose centifolia water from organic farming. This powerful mix of ingredients sounds perfect to me.
Aquifolium also sent me two sample sized bottles of their bath & shower gel, and a mild shampoo. These would work great when traveling. After trying these products I would definitely recommend Aquifolium bio cosmetics.
