It’s been a while since I’ve done favourites posts because I find them to be a little redundant. Also, I don’t tend to use so many products that it warrants I have consistent monthly favourites! I’ve been trying out more niche beauty brands lately and have four products to share with you that I absolutely love. One thing about niche beauty is I feel like there is more of an emphasis to be ethical and use the best ingredients. Often you pay a little more, but there is a higher quality and often these brands want to be as far away from animal testing as possible.
FOUR NICHE BEAUTY PRODUCTS I’M LOVING
First up is Biossance Squalane + Micronutrient Fine Mist. I was looking for a complexion mist that didn’t contain alcohol and stumbed across Biossance. Their whole line is eco-friendly, cruelty-free and plant-derived. This mist has ingredients like green algae, squalane, hylauranic acid and minerals. I’ve been using this mist daily (and generously) for two months and still have over half the bottle left. It gives a nice refreshing effect to the skin and is perfect for when it’s hot out and I don’t want to apply a thick moisturizer. Love!
Lawless is a newer brand to Sephora and their Soft Matte Liquid Lipstick really caught my eye. The whole brand prides itself on being ‘Clean AF’, with no bad-for-you ingredients and absolutely no animal testing. I love supporting ethical brands! I bought the shade ‘Leo’, a peachy nude, and find it is so comfortable to wear I forget it’s even on. I can wear this easily for 5+ hours without having to reapply.
Next up is French Girl Organics Rose Lip Polish. I’ve been insta-stalking French Girl for a while now and have always wanted to try their line. This chic and minimalistic brand prides itself on luxury apothecary that supports sustainable agriculture. I absolutely ADORE this lip polish. It’s effective and leaves my lips feeling basked in moisture. I’ve been using this product for about 3 months and it still hasn’t dried up in the pot and looks like I’ve barely put a dent in it!
Finally we have the Herbivore Moonfruit Superfruit Night Treatment. I was always intrigued by this product because of it’s bright purple appearance and claims of sloughing off dead skin with natural fruit enzymes. For the last year, it was consistently sold out on Sephora, but I finally was able to snag it (and it’s back in stock!). I’ve never tried a product like this. It’s balm-like in texture and leaves the skin feeling slightly sticky. You know it’s fully rubbed in once the purple disappears, and it smells delicious as well. I like knowing that I’m not using synthetic acids on my skin since I’m not fully comfortable with chemical exfoliators just yet, and I wake up with ultra-smooth skin.
Have you guys tried any of these products?
