Mångata is a luxurious and one hundred percent organic line from artisan skincare brand Holistic Green Beauty. The founders Dani and Scott are incredibly passionate about natural skincare and the line is exquisite, thoughtfully produced with only the highest quality ingredients. I have reviewed holistic Green Beauty before (see review here) and the Chocolate cleansing balm is one of the most indulgent and effective products I have ever used.
I met the lovely Dani through blogging, what now feels like an eternity ago. Whilst a lot has changed in that time, the passion he and Scott have for natural ingredients remains unchanged. The passion that once led him to start a blog, lives on his business and having known him for some time I think that creating his own range was definitely something he was meant to do.
The passion many artisan formulators have is contagious and when Dani and I met for lunch and he excitedly told me about this latest launch, I was really looking forward to trying the products for myself. He kindly gifted me the entire line and it has been really special to be able to use these beautiful products.
The range includes four skincare products and one body care item. All housed in beautiful miron glass packaging, that products the precious ingredients inside. Although still a relatively young brand, the products have already made it to the coveted pages of Vogue, speaking volumes about the quality and luxury of the products. Every product is a joy to use, every ingredients list packed with natural oils and butters, no fillers and certainly nothing questionable.
Eden Rain body serum – It isn’t often you come across facial grade ingredients in a body product, but when you do it really makes it stand out from the crowd. Eden rain is packed full of high quality oils such as camellia seed oil, pomegranate seed oil, baobab and rosehip, none of the ingredients would look out of place in a facial serum and each brings wonderful benefits to the blend. The oil is silky and easily absorbed, leaving the skin feeling so lovely soft and velvety. The scent is a beautiful blend of Frankincense, Red Mandarin, sweet orange and myrrh essential oils, I love the contrast between the depth of the Frankincense and Myrrh and the freshness of the citrus notes.
The cleansing oil – I often talk about cleansing as a ritual and the Mangata cleanser is a wonderful example of that. This is a thick nourishing oil, it invites you to take your time, to take a deep breath and slow down. I have been using this cleansing oil during the warmer months, but I can imagine it will be wonderful for tackling winter skin too. The combination of lavender, may chang and lemon essential oils, help to refresh the skin and calm the mind. The thick formula is best removed with the Holistic Green beauty organic cotton face cloth, for smoother, more nourished skin.
Baume de la Rose – Imagine a rich soothing balm, that nourishes skin and calms the senses. That is Baume de la Rose, such a beautiful product, scented with exquisite white rose. Baume de la rose completely banishes dry skin and leaves the skin smoother, softer and more relaxed. I also pop a small amount of this beautiful product on the inside of my wrists as a perfume balm. Balm de la Rose combines some of my favourite ingredients such as Prickly Pear seed oil and marigold, with deeply nourishing butters such as cocoa butter and shea butters. If using on the face only a small amount is needed for all over coverage.
The Supreme face oil – The highlight of my evening routine is always applying a face oil. I love the ritual of massaging oils in to my skin and the blend in The Supreme, is packed full of goodness. Pumpkin seed oil, prickly pear seed oil, hemp seed oil and more give the skin a beautiful glowing and dewy look. The wonderful scent of chamomile, lavender and immortelle helps to relax the mind ready for sleep. I find this to be beautifully balancing and soothing on the skin, a fantastic all round face oil.
Eye and lip elixir – I adore using oils around the eyes and this one is a delight. It is incredibly concentrated, so you only need one drop to moisturise both eyes. To use a lip serum simply take a small amount and gently tap around the lip area and it moisturises and plumps the delicate area, I love to pop a balm over the top for extra nourishment. The eye and lip elixir contains some wonderful ingredients such a plum kernel, prickly pear, camellia and argan oils. It helps not only deeply moisturise, but brightens the under eye area giving a more awake look. This potent little bottle works wonders and has such a wonderful host of ingredients.
Mångata by Holistic Green Beauty is a really special line, thoughtfully produced formulas that really make a difference to the skin, paired with the best organic ingredients and a wonderful sensory experience. This is the kind of range that is wonderful if you want to truly make your skincare routine a special occasion each day. I can’t recommend the beautiful products in the Mångata range enough, green beauty lovers will adore this collection.
