My beauty routine can be described as basic at best but I’ve recently decided to invest in more targeted skincare products. It’s probably just me buying into all that ‘you’re heading into your late twenties and you’re going to get wrinkles unless you act right this very minute’ talk but oh well. First up on my list of purchases was this Rosehip and Camellia Seed Facial Serum by Grown Alchemist. I’ve used Grown products in the past and keep hearing good things about rosehip oil so this was a bit of a no brainer. I was initially hesitant about using a serum, since I don’t really like products that are too oily, but I seriously love this stuff. It doesn’t feel greasy at all. I’ve been using it for a few weeks and my skin already looks a lot brighter. While I can’t comment on the effectiveness of its ability to reduce the appearance of fine lines (I don’t have any yet) in the meantime you can call me a convert.
After seeing them seemingly everywhere, I decided to treat myself to some goodies by Grown. I chose the Vanilla & Orange Peel hand cream and the Watermelon lip balm. At $20+ they’re a bit of a splurge but are well worth the treat. Each product smells just as delicious as they sound and best of all they contain certified organic ingredients and are not tested on animals. I ordered these from the Grown online shop and have to applaud the speedy delivery, especially around this time of year. Now I’ve just got to start saving my pennies so I can stock up on more of the range!
