Naturally Better You
My first blog post in collaboration with the natural online beauty store https://www.naturallybetteryou.com. A UK- based website selling the best natural, irritant free and gentle beauty products available on the market. These range from skin care, hair care, personal wellbeing and child care. I will be featuring one of my favourite products from the site every month and as a thankyou for all your support we will be working together to bring you a giveaway or discount code!
To kick off the collab I was given Skin Yoga’s Sandlewood and Saffron face mask. This is exclusive to ‘Naturally Better You’ in the UK; I was excited to sample this new 100% natural, cruelty-free luxury skin care brand. Already used in salons worldwide and featured in publications including Vogue, Harpers Bazaar and Grazia, it’s no surprise that Skin Yoga has been turning heads in the beauty industry for the past few months.
The Sandlewood and Saffron face mask is priced at £27 and suitable for dry to very dry skin. The formulation aims to reduce signs of ageing and pigmentation, improving skin texture and tone as well as increasing circulation.
Sandlewood – reverse ageing, reduce wrinkles and dark spots.
Saffron- improve texture and radiance.
Walnuts- improve elasticity and cell renewal.
The product is an ‘earthy’ coloured gritty powder that come in a cutesy little jar with a spoon. To apply, take a spoonful of the powder into the palm of your hand and add a couple of drops of tap water to form a paste. Apply the mask to clean dry skin and leave on until it has dried – this took around 10mins. To remove the mask just rinse with water; the gritty texture offers some gentle exfoliation as you remove the product-an added bonus!
Though admittedly on the pricey side, a little of this product goes a really long way, so the value for money works out well. I feel that you are most definitely getting the best quality ingredients for your money. Meticulously formulated to yield the best results possible after one use, the instant brighter, fresher complexion is noticeable immediately after rinsing off. Incredibly gentle and nourishing, it really does feel like a treat for the skin. If you want to get a noticeable effect from a product without using harsh peels or chemicals that can irritate the skin, this is the face mask for you. I love using this as a treat after a day of shooting; it calms the skin following a good deep cleanse -to remove all the makeup and product from the day. It prepares the skin for your toner, serum and moisturizer ensuring you wake up with a plump replenished completion. I generally use this product twice a week and after about 4/5 uses I could really notice my dark spots from previous teenage blemishes had begun to lighten.
I really enjoy using this product and love the fact that all the ingredients are 100% natural and non irritating. It is really important not to neglect a nourishing face mask in preference to the usual clays which though are great at pulling out any underlying spots, they don’t cater for the times when your skin just needs a gentle pick me up and an extra boost of goodness- I would highly recommend this product for all skin types as a calming treat. On dryer skins you can use this multiple times a week whilst with oily, spot-prone complexions, I would reduce to a weekly treatment to help heal any blemishes and soothe the skin.
