If you love organic products then Pinks Boutique is a brand you need to know about. Founded by Kirstie and Luke, their common love of Asia inspires the brands products. I have blogged about the brand quite a few times before, every product I have tried has been excellent quality and I especially love the Indonesian inspired range for body.
Today I have two face care products to share with you, the cornerstone of any routine a cleanser and a toner.
The Deep cleanse melt is a beautiful silky cleanser, it has the benefits of a cleansing balm with the convenience and ease of removal of a cleansing milk, perfect for anyone that is new to balms. There are three cleansing balms in the Pinks Boutique collection, this one is suited for sensitive and dehydrated skins. With calendula, chamomile and lavender the scent is as soothing as the product itself and is perfect for winding down after a long day. This cleansing balm is very easily removed thanks to a slight emulsification that happens when you apply water, I still prefer to use a flannel to remove it, I use a cotton and bamboo mix as they are very soft, but rest assure you will not have to work hard to remove it at all. What I love about a cleansing balm is that combined with a facial massage you really get the circulation going, helping blood flow, the oils gently soften the skin and the removal process gently exfoliates. This cleansing balm also happens to be vegan, so absolutely perfect for those of you that avoid beeswax. I have found that in the summer months it is best to keep this in the fridge to ensure the balm doesn’t melt.
Following on from the cleansing balm you can spritz the skin with the Ocha Organic Toner suitable for normal, dry and dehydrated skins. This product has a spring water base that is boosted with Japanese green tea for it’s anti-oxidant effect, glycerine to bind moisture and lavender to refresh the skin. This toner comes out of the bottle as a super fine mist, extremely refreshing and perfect for preparing skin for the all important serums and helping them to absorb in to the skin. I have thoroughly enjoyed this product, the fact that the bottle is now empty tells you just how much. Despite the inclusion of organic alcohol in the formula I didn’t find it drying or problematic in any way, I mention it because I get a lot of questions about organic formulas and alcohol as it is used as a preservative.
