Green fingers: Plant-inspired beauty treats we love
Going green is suddenly chic in fashion, and has been in beauty for awhile. But while all-natural or organic skincare, may not be suitable for every skin type — using pure plant oils can aggravate your skin — having plant ingredients in your skincare products do give them a much-needed boost. And if you consider yourself a fragrance connoisseur, then a crisp, green scent is something you need in your perfume wardrobe. Here are three, new favourites that you should stock up on.
1. Tom Ford Private Blend Vert de Fleur, from $330-$850
A subversion of a classic green scent, this blends iris and hyacinth with other refined, green notes including basil and dark oakmoss. The result? A luxurious, seductive and expensive addition to the private blend collection.
2. Origins Flower Fusion Hydrating Sheet Mask, $5 per sheet
Handcrafted with 100 per cent natural bamboo, these super soft masks, are also formulated with flower extracts to give skin an instant boost of moisture and radiance. There are six variants, include jasmine, rose and lavender.
3. Crabtree & Evelyn Anti-Pollution Hand Primer Beauty Protection Serum, $38
Are you one of those ladies who really gives TLC to your precious mitts? Besides a hand scrub, cream and mask, you can also start using a hand primer. An extra skincare step, this acts as a protective barrier that prevents damaging particles from adhering to the hands using protective ingredients like probiotics and botanical acids extracted from bilberry, sugar cane, sugar maple, orange and lemon.
