I have to say 2016 saw so many new discoveries for me in terms of brands and products, more than I could really keep up with in fact. I mentioned Terreverdi back in September as part of my Organic Beauty week posts and I thought it was a brand that definitely was worth revisiting. Terreverdi was created by Alessandra de Gregorio who was inspired by her childhood in Sicily to reconnect with nature and re-evaluate many of her choices after she had her four children.
Terreverdi has a variety of skincare and body care products in the line, all packaged minimally in recyclable miron glass which has protective qualities for the ingredients inside. The brand is certified organic by the Soil Association and cruelty free by Cruelty Free International as well as being entirely vegan. All the ingredients lists are simple, wholesome and full of good things for the skin. To me Terreverdi screams understated quality, it is a line that really does look enticing.
I have been testing a few products from the line and I have a couple more to test and try in 2017 which I am looking forward to. I can say that so far it is a brand that I would whole heartedly recommend without a second thought. Not only are the products beautifully presented and deliver great results but the brand is very affordably priced too. The first product I have been testing is the FranChouliPom Facial serum (£27 for 30 mls), a rich nourishing serum perfect for dry and mature skin with luscious oils such as pomegranate and camellia. I struggle to find anything negative to say about oils at the best of times as they are my favourite skincare products, but this serum is just lovely. When I apply it sinks right in to the skin, leaving it feeling really comfortable. The scent is light but very relaxing, perfect if you can't tolerate anything too heavy on your skin. The Argan Shea Multi-tasking cream (£29 for 50 mls) is a brilliant product, a thick waterless cream with Shea Butter and calendula extract to really soothe the skin. It can be used all over the body or face and it blitzes dry patches easily. It has a beautiful texture and despite being rich it sinks well without leaving too much heavy residue. A real staple product I love how concentrated and soothing it is.
I have loved discovering Terreverdi and I think it is a brand we will be seeing much more of next year. Have you tried anything from the range? What did you think?
