Spring is notoriously volatile in our part of the world, and it can leave the skin angry and confused. But don’t despair! A’kin has just released a limited edition duo pack of their award-winning organic rosehip oil. Here’s what’s in it for you: you can pamper your skin and save money all in one go. How nice is that?
If you’re looking for natural skincare for kids, you can’t go past Little Innoscents. Started by a passionate Australian mum who couldn’t find truly ‘green’ products when she was pregnant with her first child, the whole range is formulated with 100% natural ingredients, Australian-made and entirely certified organic by ACO to boot!
Liquid vitamin E (also referred to as vitamin E oil) has finally been added to the Echolife natural beauty catalogue – and it’s not just any vitamin E, it’s the good stuff: sky-high I.U. and produced by an award-winning sustainable manufacturer with pedantic quality control.
If by now you’re not excited, maybe it’s because you’re not entirely sure why vitamin E is so good for the skin (yes, why?). Let’s remind ourselves.
Vitamin E is naturally present in the skin and helps keep its protective barrier healthy. In a perfect world, your plump, dewy skin complete with healthy natural barrier would never lose its moisture and become dehydrated. Enter reality and the daily stresses your skin has to face: eliminating toxins, fighting the numerous chemicals it is exposed to (environmental or topical), uv rays, not enough beauty sleep or water,… It’s hard work staying plump under these conditions!
At Echolife HQ we’re on a perpetual mission to expand our catalogue and bring you products you ask for. One such product was an aroma diffuser with a light that can be completely switched off – and we’re happy to say we found just the thing.
We now stock three new ultrasonic aroma diffusers from SafeFlame – they answer to the names Genie, Pyramid and Prim and not only do they preserve your essential oils’ and blends’ aromatherapeutic properties, they also ionise the air around you (how nice!).
If you’ve got a problem, these clever roller balls can help. They’re blended by the capable folks at Tisserand from organic and ethically harvested essential oils, to help you through everyday situations ranging from foggy brain (Head Clear), lack of concentration (Focus), trouble settling in for the night (Sweet Dreams) to that inevitable afternoon slump (Energise).
Weleda has been hard at work caring for your skin for over 90 years – and their latest endeavour is as promising as ever: four body lotions with nurturing natural ingredients and tantalising scents: Wild Rose, Sea Buckthorn, Citrus and Pomegranate. And you have a chance to win some!
The new formulas are an improvement on the previous line all around: focusing on delivering more benefits to the skin with more stable ingredients, they also do not contain any animal products and are suitable for vegans. With names like Pampering, Hydrating, Regenerating and Replenishing, who wouldn’t want to give one (or all!) a go?
We love you sensitive types, so we’ve just added a whole new range of natural skin care to suit your needs. Burt’s Bees’ line of products for sensitive skin caters to temperamental, irritated, and overall harder-to-manage skin with 99% natural formulas that are allergy and dermatologist-tested. The resulting Sensitive range provides maximum efficiency with minimum risk of irritation or redness. And you can win yourselves some. Sounds good? Read on!
Burt’s Bees have been busy reformulating their hair care line – and making it prettier with new packaging and labelling as well. If you’re already familiar with their range, you’ll be pleased to know that it hasn’t changed. Sulfate-free shampoos and matching conditioners are still available as Super Shiny, Very Volumizing or More Moisture.
We’ll admit: maintaining our regular green smoothie habit is a bit harder during the winter months… But we’re still making an effort because a raw fruit and veg drink is a fantastic way to get a daily shot of fibre and concentrated nutrition, whatever the season. We’ve found that changing ingredients around really helps, as well as reminding ourselves that it will greatly increase our energy and make our skin glow (as evidenced by our 21 Day Green Smoothie Challenge back in January!).
