Hi, Glitzies! Recently, I’ve been using this brand of skin care products called Botáni which has been working really well on my skin that I would have to write about it and share it with you guys. I think this brand of products works really well for my oily combination skin type and it’s a safe product to try it too.
As I’m inching closer and closer to the ideal lifestyle of living consciously, I am slowly drawing myself towards skincare products that have a simple ingredient list of natural ingredients. Nothing is too complicated here and very few chemicals were added. Somehow, my skin is started to accept such products better than those which has a list of other ingredients which I knew nothing about being added into.
What makes Botáni suitable for those eco-conscious individuals, like myself?
It uses 100 % plant active ingredient. It’s also vegan-friendly and an ideal skin formula for all seasons
The product formula is also bio-compatible with human skin. In addition, it contains no artificial fragrances, colours, petrochemicals or mineral oils.
I actually won these products through an Instagram contest organized by Love Organics and they gave me the products that suit my current skin condition and here’re the products they sent to me:
1) Botani Exfoliating 2 in 1 Scrub and Mask
2) Botani Olive Skin Serum
3) Botani Soothing Facial Mist
Botani Exfoliating 2 in 1 Scrub and Mask
This scrub-cum-mask product is an ingenious way of combining the two products together. Firstly, you spread the product evenly across your skin then you leave it for about 5 minutes till your skin feels taut. Next, you wet your hands and wash the mask-scrub off with a circular motion to exfoliate the skin. Since this scrub can be used daily, you can apply this mask on a daily basis too. And your skin is going to feel extra smooth.
This scrub really get rids of the blackheads and unwanted substances on my skin. My skin feels cleaner and smoother but somewhat quite dry too. But it isn’t bad if you use their Olive skin serum after toner which rehydrates the skin after the intense cleansing step. When your skin is cleansed, it’s ready to absorb any other nourishing facial products which will nourish and moisturize the skin.
The scrub contains jojoba oil spheres that gently exfoliates the skin without harming the environment. It also contains a blend of Oat Bran, Australian Bentonite Clay, Rice Flour, Quandong and Olive Squalane.
You could do this while showering and it certainly saves a lot of time. The mask dries up very fast on your skin so you don’t have to leave it too long before scrubbing it off.
After the cleansing, you can spritz Botani soothing facial mist that smells of rosewater. It helps to tone the skin and set makeup.
I would usually spritz 4 times across my face and pat the product gently into the skin till everything is absorbed. After that, I would use Botani olive skin serum as a moisturizer too, just before going to bed.
Botáni Olive Skin Serum
This serum contains 99% squalene derived from cold pressed organic olives. Squalene is a natural form of moisturiser and antioxidant which is also found naturally in our skin. The human skin contains up to 12 to 13% of squalene. It oxygenates skin cells which thereby accelerates cell growth.
Initially, I thought it might have a similar consistency to olive oil and I was worried that it might be too oily for my skin. However, it turns out to have this light and non-oily formulation which quickly absorbs into the skin. So I started using the serum as a moisturizer and it leaves this satin-like feel on my skin every time I use it.
When applied underneath makeup as a primer, it gives a nice radiant glow. This formula is just about right – not too oily for the skin and doesn’t cause my skin to have more clogs or breakouts. In fact, after using this serum, my skin became less dry.
I use about 2 drops and warm it in my hands first before pressing and tapping gently onto my face and eye area. Then I will gently massage the product into my skin till its fully absorbed.
This product is ideal for those individuals who are exposed to high levels of humidity, heating, and air conditioning.
Squalene (olive), Vitamin C (Ascorbic acid), Vitamin E and Lecithin
Just 4 simple ingredients!
I highly recommend this skin care to those with sensitive skin and for any eco-conscious individuals out there who wants to try out natural skincare brands which are effective.
