Today I wanted to share with you all two beauty products I am currently loving at the moment, which incorporate natural ingredients. You have probably heard a lot of hype over the past year about coconut oil and rosehip oil- the media have been labeling them hero products within the beauty world, and in general, everybody seems to be shifting over to using natural beauty products in aid of keeping harsh chemicals and ingredients away from their skin.
The products I have been working into my daily regimes are from Phytacol and Coconoil, and it’s safe to say I am in love with both…
I try to use natural products when I can, but in a world where there seems to be a different product for every little concern – and some magical ones at that- it can be quite difficult when you faced with overwhelming choices on the High Street. Many a time I have gone weeks using Tea Tree and Aloe Vera based products, only to then find I’m mixing it up with harsh salicylic acids to help with breakouts, or AHA products to fade away redness.
When I was introduced to the products above, I was relieved to have the excuse again to slip back into my natural beauty product regime. Coconut oil is always raved about; and this brand in particular – Coconoil- has some fantastic reviews. Coconoil Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is careful produced from the finest organically grown coconuts in Sri Lanka.
By using traditional methods of production, it retains all healthy qualities to provide a completely natural oil. As well as it’s uses for beauty, it’s also fantastic for cooking, being a healthy alternative to cooking oils, bringing extra flavours and providing energy
The texture of Coconoil is of a slightly stiff wax, with it’s main beauty properties being to provide glowing skin upon application to face and body, and one of nature’s best ways to beat dry skin. I have been smoothing this onto certain dry patches on my arms over the past month, along with also mixing it up with other kitchen ingredients to provide nourishing face masks and also hair masks! I mixed the Coconoil with honey and left on my hair for half an hour, using this as an intensive hair mask.
I can’t begin to tell you how amazing my hair smelt afterwards, and how soft and silky it was to touch! I now try and use this concoction twice a week, as my hair is very dry from constantly lightening and applying heat.
In terms of Rosehip Oil, this is the first time I have used a product like this that also comes in a lotion form as well as an oil. The two products come as PhytaOil and PhytaLotion, and are both incredible little heroes!
As you may know, Rosehip oil is popular for it’s scar healing properties, along with stretch mark fading, intensive moisturising and acting as a powerful antioxidant, so everything it promotes is beneficial to me. The lotion is lovely- it doesn’t feel like you are putting an oil into your skin, and even though in this case it is completely fine to smooth this oil into skin, some people feel happier using a lotion texture. Me for one…
If you are looking to improve skin tone, texture and help reduce wrinkles at the same time, utilising rosehip is the best way of naturally doing this. Working this wonder product into your regime is fantastic- I have noticed my skin reacts to these two products wonderfully, with no initial redness or breakouts- just smooth, supple skin from the word go. I have been using the PhytaLotion in particular for 3 weeks now, and feel like the redness to my skin has calmed down a lot and my skin is looking really healthy. It also has a natural, fresh scent.
Rosehip oil naturally contains Vitamins A and E, along with natural oils of apricot kernal, jojoba seed, lavender, lime and geranium, which help with the skins regenerative process. In both of these products – the Coconoil and Rosehip, there are no traces at all of mineral oils, synthectic preservatives or added fragrances.
I can’t love these natural products enough! Take a look at the information below, but first, do a little bit of your own research and you’ll see just how popular and well loved they are, by people like myself and beauty experts alike.
