CSL picks great beauty products for the season.
1. FLOWER POWER
With a beautifully soft texture that easily absorbs into skin, this salve is made with three ingredients: calendula flowers, olive oil and beeswax. For centuries calendula was used in home remedies for cuts, burns, and skin irritation. Try it on your skin and see what you think! River City Herbals Organic Calendula Ointment, 1 oz.
2. PENCIL ME IN
Made with jojoba oil, this lip pencil delivers a nice dose of matte colour. Its waxy rather than creamy texture provides a long-lasting saturated base for lipstick. Hey, ‘tis the season to pucker up! Au Naturale Cosmetics Perfect Match Lip Pencil in Spanish Rose.
3. MELLOW YELLOW
This speckled yellow bar is soothing on skin with shea and calendula. With a pleasant fragrance (though not perceptibly ylang ylang), it provides nice lather. Best of all, this soap is vegan. Schmidt’s Ylang-ylang + Calendula Natural Soap, 142 g.
Party season is here – get your skin in gear! This mask is partly derived from antioxidant-rich sources like red currant, elderflower, and magnolia bark. Apply to your face (with a little water) to exfoliate and brighten as part of your pre-party routine. Éminence Organic Skin Care Red Currant Rapid Infusion Masque, 60ml.
5. PICK UP STEAM
Adding colour and shine often means sacrificing space in your makeup bag. This travel-friendly, all-in-one blush is a saviour for lips, cheeks, face and even décolleté. Of course, it’ll make you blush! Vapour Organic Beauty Aura Multi Use Blush, 6.8 g.
