August 2020 natural beauty empties

Welcome back, beauty lover! It’s empties time again! My August 2020 natural beauty empties saw a wonderful mix of different kinds of natural beauty. My favourite product is a loose mineral foundation I simply can’t live without. It’s the best I’ve tried and I recommend it to everybody – MoMineral Loose Mineral Foundation!

There’s also a silky balm to milk cleanser, sexy botanical tincture, hydrating green serum, blueberry cleanser, light moisturiser, chamomile herbal soap, and grapefruit essential oil. You’ll also find travel size invisible sunscreen, rose hydrosol, and a de-bloat supplement sachet.

Are you ready to make friends with these natural beauties? Let’s go!

MoMineral Loose Mineral Foundation

This is absolutely my favourite mineral foundation right now. There’s a MoMineral foundation shade for everybody – whether you are very pale, or very dark. No more struggling to find a matching shade!

MoMineral Loose Mineral Foundation

Not only are the shade options spot on, the foundation is 100% natural and filled with gorgeous clean ingredients. The matte finish foundation suits my skin tone perfectly, covering imperfections but not masking my skin. It doesn’t settle in my lines, and wears well over the day without becoming patchy. I get so many compliments about my skin while I’m wearing it!

I feel like this foundation actively calms my skin with soothing kaolin and zinc oxide, while providing medium coverage, healing blemishes, and providing sun protection. It’s so easy to apply with a soft kabuki brush.

The sample service is amazing. For just £1.50 you can try 5 shades from the 25-strong collection to wear and love at home before committing to a full size product.

As for MoMineral, championing natural beauty for all comes easily.

I grew up in Nigeria, at a time when the use of natural products was simply part of our everyday routine and not necessarily a luxury.

Definitely get your hands on some samples at momineral.co.uk or via their Instagram and enjoy this wonderful foundation as much as I do!

Odylique Silk Touch Cleanser

This gorgeous vegan cleanser is something of a marvel. Odylique Silk Touch Cleanser removes makeup and deeply cleanses whilst rehydrating thirsty skin. It goes on as a rich balm, then transforms into an easy to rinse milk upon contact with water.

Odylique Silk Touch Cleanser

I love the texture of this cleanser, and it smells absolutely beautiful. It’s very relaxing before bed. Needless to say my skin feels so deeply cleansed with no traces of makeup and no residue. A definite repurchase and a cleanser that comes highly recommended.

Blooming Blends Be Sexy Tincture

This fantastic tincture contains herbs including ashwagandha and shatavari to boost libido. I used the bottle up within a month, and I promised to give my final verdict once I finished the bottle. Did I feel sexier? Yes, I did! It boosted my overall energy and stamina which had knock on effects in, erm, other areas!

Blooming Blends Be Sexy Tincture

I’d definitely recommend Blooming Blends Be Sexy. See my full review for a rundown of the herbs used and how they can help relight your inner fire!

Ere Perez Quandong Green Booster Serum

This is a very nice serum indeed. It promises to boost skin with an antioxidant-rich blend of superfood ingredients to support a healthy, glowing complexion.

Ere Perez Quandong Green Booster Serum

Ere Perez Quandong Serum hydrates and calms my skin beautifully in the morning after using glycolic acid the previous evening. I think with long term use this serum is insurance for skin given how rich in nutrients it is.

Glow Recipe Blueberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser

This was a birthday present from my lovely husband! I wasn’t familiar with Glow Recipe and I was a bit worried this would contain ingredients I wasn’t happy with, but it’s beautifully formulated with clean and helpful ingredients.

Glow Recipe Blueberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser

It’s a gorgeous jelly cleanser with a sweet fragrance that foams to cleanse while hydrating the skin and exfoliating too with blueberry extracts and gentle AHAs. I’d definitely repurchase this fun product!

Dafna’s Moisture + Light

This moisturiser from Spanish brand Dafna’s is very nice indeed. Described as a natural aromatherapeutic cream with a silky texture and fast absorption, my skin feels comfortable all day wearing this. I also love the packaging – a cute and eco-friendly UV protective glass pump bottle.

Dafna's Moisture + Light

The light facial lotion is based on 19 natural active ingredients with curative qualities including hyaluronic acid, calendula, neroli, and ivy extract. I’d love to explore more from this brand!

Kear Chamomile Herbal Soap

I reviewed the Greek natural skincare brand Kear a few months ago and we’ve been enjoying using their lovely soaps that are based on ancient Greek recipes.

I really love how this soap holds its shape in the soap dish after use. It smells gorgeous, too!

Mádara Plant Stem Cell Antioxidant Sunscreen SPF30

This one came in the LoveLula August Beauty Box. It truly is an amazing sunscreen. It’s easy to apply and blends invisibly so is suitable for most skin shades.

Mádara Plant Stem Cell Antioxidant Sunscreen SPF30

This is definitely on my wishlist for next year after I’ve used my other SPF30 sunscreens.

If you’ve followed my blog for a while you’ll understand my love for rose hydrosol.

Balm Balm Rose Hydrosol

Balm Balm Rose Hydrosol is one of the best I’ve tried. It took me no time at all to use this handy travel size up!

Don’t let the appearance put you off. This is a really good quality essential oil at a value for money price.

The Nue Co Debloat Food + Prebiotic

This came in the Naturisimo Vegan Discovery Box that I bought a few weeks ago. It’s touted as a “bestselling digestive formula” and comes in single-serving sachets for travel-friendly dosage.

The Nue Co Debloat Food + Prebiotic

I’m still not convinced it helped with my premenstrual bloating, but I love the beneficial ingredients.

Digestive enzymes, turmeric, cinnamon and ginger work together to relieve an uncomfortable tummy. There’s also marigold flower to soothe and prebiotic inulin to feed good bacteria. I have 2 more sachets to try before I make my mind up!
