Green Beauty: New Launches for spring



Spring is here with it's air of renovation, with new flowers popping up in the ground and the sun peeking through the clouds, it is also a time for a bumper crop of new beauty launches, here are just some of the ones that have caught my eye: 

Aurelia Skincare Firm and Revitalise Dry Body oil (£48 for 100 mls) I just can't help it, Aurelia are a brand that make me want to part with all my hard earned cash, they make products that have a truly luxury feel and they all smell divine! I am a big fan of the Cell Revitalise day cream (See my review here) but I have found some of the facial range a little too scented for my delicate, reactive skin, so when I saw they had launched this stunning oil for the body I was over the moon heavenly scented skin here I come.

Ilia Lip conditioners and Finishing Powder Two new limited edition lip conditioners have arrived and as a big Ilia fan they made my heart do a little flutter, you have Hold me now which is a pretty muted baby pink and Jump which is a bright pop of magenta both are £22 from Being Content and I have been resisting the urge to buy Jump since I first saw it, how long that will last I do not know... The last Ilia launch is a finishing powder called Fade into you priced at £30 this powder comes packaged in a lovely looking refillable powder brush. Not sure about anyone else but I have had bad experiences with these kinds of brushes in the past, scratchy bristles and leaky powder or even worse no powder that comes out at all, but I can't help but feel Ilia's offering will be different as everything they do comes with meticulous attention to detail and gorgeous quality, this powder is officially on the wish list!

RMS Mascara's volumizing and lengthening (£24) Cult beauty brand RMS have launched not one but two mascara's and the green beauty world has been going a little crazy for them, I love my RMS products so it's safe to say these have gone on the mascara's to try list, after all aren't we all on a permanent quest for THE Holy Grail mascara and these could well be it. 

Finally I am finishing with a new British brand launch, a new Organic brand that has been some months in the making is Yours Truly Organics which launches tomorrow, the founder is Kelita Bignall and she has formulated her products based on her own struggles with her skin. The range has some interesting looking products and sleek packaging, I have been in contact through email with Kelita whilst she was developing the products and she seems incredibly passionate about what she is doing, in particular the Face base face balm which has a some lovely ingredients to really nourish the skin, cocoa butter, jojoba oil and even the more exotic cupuacu butter this sounds like a real skin nourisher well worth a look.

Have you got your eye on any new launches?

  12. I've been following and chatting to Kelita from Yours Truly Organics from the beginning of her journey too and I'm excited about seeing what the products will be like. Having struggled myself with problem skin I'm intrigued to see what she's put together and how they perform :) x
