This was a little sample I registered to try out on What’s in my handbag and is now in my top 10 of covetable products. It’s a serum that hydrates like no other I have tried. My skin looked plumper, hydrated and smooth, with no breakouts even from first use.
Aurelia probiotic skincare describe themselves as organic skincare made with natural and ethically sourced ingredients (BioOrganic). There’s a whole heap of technical information relating to their philosophy online, which I won’t go in to much detail here, suffice it to say that they are targeting anti-ageing and skin regeneration, including an increase in collagen production (a reduction of which contributes to skin ageing). Their products are free from some of the common nasties which can cause irritation and age skin, such as parabens, silicones, synthetic fragrance/colours, mineral oils, propylene glycol, sulphates, phthalates, GMO, PEGs, DEA and TEA (OK some of these I have no idea about but sounds good to me that they are not in there. Actually, if you take a look at their website they tell you why they are nasties).
Back to their Revitalise & glow serum – this stuff is fantastic. Light, non-greasy, effective and fine for sensitive skin. I saw results almost immediately with my skin appearing smooth and healthy, almost like it did in my 20s (almost). Nirvana, no? Botanicals of baobab, hibiscus, mongongo oil, kigelia africana combine with essential oils of jasmine, mandarin, plumeria and tuberose to restructure, regenerate and firm skin with omegas, vitamin E, peptides, probiotics and anti-oxidants. Lots of science there, but if it works then that’s fine by me. Plus it’s an award-winner, so gaining in reputation quickly – Red green beauty, Beauty awards 2013, Ultimate natural beauty bible and best new brand 2014.
I like the combination of organic ingredients and their philosophy of evidence based skincare. They are a British company who manufacture their products in England, although ingredients are sourced responsibly from elsewhere. They are against animal testing too, another plus in my book. Finally, although not cheap they are more affordable than a lot of other organic and effective skincare products on the market.
NB. This was a sample from an online magazine.
