Emporio Organico – starting at $6.95
Emporio Organico is your one stop shop for all your organic and eco luxe gifts, food and lifestyle needs. All the products featured online at Emporio Organico have been carefully selected. They are practitioner tested and contain absolutely no hidden chemicals or nasty surprises. I recently became obsessed with their Rahua Colour Full Shampoo and Conditioner combo. The set is formulated from pure plant derived and Amazonian ingredients. Infused with gardenia and lavender essences, this rich and creamy shampoo + conditioner is formulated to protect your colour by encapsulating each strand of hair with the power of rahua, morete and flaxseed oils. The conditioner detangles and softens while adding bounce and shine. Check out the entire range at Emporio Organica and get inspired by their Christmas Gift Guide!
Moo Goo skin care – starting at $6.90
All MooGoo’s products are designed to keep the skin or scalp moist, supple with high quality, natural ingredients. They don’t feature words like “Earth”, “Nature” or “Enviro” in their name, but are certainly one of the most environmentally friendly, Australian-owned skin care companies. With an incredibly large range to choose from, one of my favourites for summer is the How Now Brown Cow Gradual Tanning Cream. I don’t like sun baking but I certainly like the bronzed look. This cream does just that, using natural ingredients, without the fake tan smell and a golden bronzed colour. In the shower, I’m loving their very gentle Milk Wash. It combines 4 very mild natural cleansers without parabens, SLS or even Coco Betaine. There’s no Essential Oils that sometimes trigger reactions, but instead a blend of Vanilla with the allergy triggering compounds removed. If you want to give the gift of Moo Goo this Christmas, check out their fantastic gift packs! Available at health food stores, pharmacies and online. See the stock list!
Ella Bache – starting at $49.00
Launching their Spring ’28-Day SkinFit’ program, Ella Bache encourages women to think about their inner and outer health. The #IWillBeMe campaign says that 28 days is the length of time it takes for skin cells to rejuvenate so they released their 28 Day Skinfit Spring pack. The pack contains Savon Adoucissant, an extra gentle cream cleanser that carries away make-up, impurities and excess surface oil whilst leaving the skin feeling soft and clean. After I use this, my skin feels super silky and soft to touch – the smell is also super luxe without any perfumes or synthetic scents. A second addition to the pack is the Plus Èmulsion Tomate, A unique pH balancing moisturising emulsion rich in tomato extract. The cream works naturally to purify, balance and restore a healthy glow to tired looking skin. It helps to diffuse redness and calm sensitive skin. It brightens and refines the texture for a smoother complexion, perfect as a make up base! Lastly, I’m loving the Great SPF50+ Bodysaver Lotion which is enriched with lanolin, macadamia nut and olive oil. It’s one of the few sunscreens that makes my skin feel soft, moisturised and hydrated, not sticky and shiny. The sunscreen is packed with antioxidant complex of pomegranate, cranberry, grape seed and vitamin E, enhancing the skins’ protective barrier and whilst preventing moisture loss. Ella Bache is available in salons, online and David Jones.
I recently started using the Base Collective magnesium blend skin care that nourishes the skin and helps to heal my sore muscles. If you’re someone that regularly works out and is looking for natural ingredients for your skin care – I highly recommend this range. I use magnesium natural shower gel, magnesium body balm and my favourite – the magnesium oil that helps me relax and de-stress before bed. This is all part of their Magnesium + White Tea Relax Bundle which also includes magnesium bath salts for those extra tough days at the gym. Spraying magnesium oil on my body can also help tackle sugar cravings, depression, anxiety and muscle cramps. A great, all round natural ingredient you need to get amongst!
