If you've been following me for a while you will probably have seen or heard me mention Adorn Cosmetics. They are my go to for luxury, non toxic skincare and makeup.
A little disclaimer before I begin - Adorn does gift me some of their products, however I found this brand myself when I first made the switch to non toxic beauty products. I bought all the initial products with my own money, and will still place orders with them today ! I don't have affiliate links and am not getting paid to talk about these products - just thought I'd share what I love incase anyone is looking for non tox recommendations.
In trying to keep this blog post short I've chosen only a couple of products from the skincare and makeup sections - but know that these are not my only recommendations (all their products are amazing - these are just my top picks !)
The Anti-aging Antioxidant Botanical Night Cream.
This was one of the first products I tried and it is one my favourites. The scent of this cream is so lovely, and you go to bed still feeling fresh and clean, and not 'weighed down' by product.
Ingredients & benefits: ( From Adorn's website )
Cranberry extract - promotes elasticity, firming and diminishes the appearance of wrinkles
Aloe Vera - powerful wound healing, anti-inflammatory packed with nutrients and antioxidants that reduce skin inflammation.
Rosehip Oil - renowned for its skin healing properties. High concentrations of Omegas 3, 6, 7 & 9, plus antioxidant carotenoids help repair and protect the skin against environmental stresses and visible damage.
Coconut Water - contains amino acids that help to immediately hydrate dehydrated skin.
Ylang Ylang - balancing and stimulating, ylang ylang oil helps even out sebum production, making it a wonderful ally for all skin types, especially oily & dry skin.
Shea & Cocoa Butter - hydrates, restores and prevents moisture loss.
Tomato Seed Oil - powerful antioxidant to reduce free-radical oxidation
Olive Leaf Extract - packed full of antioxidants and rich in glycerides that nourish and soften the skin.
The Day Antioxidant Superfood Facial Oil.
This oil sits beautifully under makeup, is great for facial massage and smells amazing. I love skincare that gives you an aromatherapy experience at the same time.
Ingredients & Benefits (from the website):
Acai Berry Oil - helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Chia Seed Oil - is not just a super food but also a super hydrating moisturiser, containing the richest source of omega-3 fatty acids.
Olive Oil - contains a rare compound Hydroxytyrosol which helps fight free radical damage & prevent premature aging.
Soybean Oil - naturally protects skin from UV rays and helps treats sun damage.
Sea Buckthorn Oil - contains over 190 phytonutrients, and is one of the best-known oils for helping to control acne.
Jojoba Oil - similar in composition to the skin’s natural sebum and absorbs easily to leave a silky, smooth complexion. Contains vitamins A & E with both antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties to help heal acne and breakouts, balance oily skin, hydrate dry skin whilst soothing sensitive skins.
Almond Oil - helps soothe inflammation such as eczema and psoriasis.
Geranium Oil - a powerful cicatrisant (skin healing), so it helps scars and other spots on the skin to fade and vanish. It facilitates blood circulation just below the surface of the skin and also helps promote a uniform distribution of melanin.
Ylang Ylang Oil - balancing and stimulating, ylang ylang oil helps even out sebum production, making it a wonderful ally for all skin types, especially oily & dry skin.
Lavender Oil - restores the skins complexion and helps to slow aging with powerful antioxidants. Helps to heal wounds and improve redness.
Anti Ageing spf 20+ Mineral Foundation - (shade: olive)
This foundation has become a must have for me ! As someone that sometimes struggles with acne this foundation ensures I'm not clogging my pores or irritating my skin. I use this all through the summer, as a light coverage as well as for events and through the cooler months for a more full makeup look as you can easily build this foundation up.
Classic Mineral Lipstick - Rustic Mocha:
This for me is the perfect shade of nude lipstick. These lipsticks don't dry the lips and yet last for hours, and look amazing.
Organic Cream Mineral Blush:
I love using cream blush - I feel like it blends so much more seamlessly into your foundation compared to a powder. The shades I've tried so far are autumn rose and coral radiance, but all colours look beautiful.
Adorn is a company that is not only non toxic - but also environmentally conscious. The product packaging for both the lipstick and blush is biodegradeable. For the mineral foundation you can purchase a refill rather than a whole new pot as well. With all this in mind, the products also still feel luxury and high quality - so even though they are non toxic and don't use a long list of ingredients, there is no compromise in their effectiveness.
