Geranium Leaf, Bergamot & Rose-Bud gel cleanser; Rose Absolute, Ginseng & Chamomile balancing toner; Borago, Rosehip & Buckthorn berry antioxidant treatment serum; White Tea & Phyto-Peptide moisturiser; Peppermint, Juniper Berry & Jojoba Micro Bead exfoliant; Wheatgerm, Gingko & Cranberry deep cleansing masque

My approach to skincare has always been relaxed at best. Some mild exfoliator or soap to cleanse my face each morning, and the odd bit of moisturiser when it was deemed necessary. Minimal yes, but not enough to achieve that effortlessly flawless skin that I’ve so been craving.

After a couple of minor break outs due to alternating between skincare brands, I finally found myself delving into the world of beauty, devouring each and every recommendation, tip, and ‘secret’ that it had to offer. I’d heard good, no, great things about Grown Alchemist; and with the words 100% certified organic, I was hooked. Fast forward to early November, and in a somewhat serendipitously timed sale, I found myself purchasing a generous selection from Grown’s skincare range.

My experience so far has been overwhelmingly positive, as each morning I find myself enchanted by the soft soothing scents of rose, geranium and sweet summer berries. My skin has been left feeling smooth and silky, enhancing my natural disposition to believe that organic truly is best. And so, just like that, my skincare regime changed; for the better too.

I start my mornings by splashing some warm water on my face, gently rubbing the cleanser into my skin before rinsing it off; making sure to follow with some cool water on my skin (to close the pores). I follow up with a small amount of toner, and carefully dab a small amount of serum to my forehead and the corners of my eyes. Lastly, I rub moisturiser onto my face and neck in a soft, circular motion. Every third day, I exfoliate, and once a week, I use a skin masque to remove any impurities from my pores.

My evenings end quite the same way, once I’ve removed what little make-up I do wear. If you’re after some Grown of your own, you can purchase it via their website or from local boutique, RUBY.

    Ooh, that stuff sounds great! Right now I just use Loreal Texture Perfector morning and night and take off my makeup with Caudalie’s makeup remover. I should probably do more but I’ve tried so many things that don’t work and they just make me disappointed.

    Thanks for the recommendation. My skin has been changing, ever since having a baby – although I’m sure dehydration and exhaustion have affected my skin as well. Will try it!

      It’s suitable for most skin types I think, so yeah give it a go. Yesterday morning I didn’t put any moisturiser on and my skin was already super soft on it’s own – a good omen if there ever was one!

    Lovely pictures Jamie-Lee. And I’ve not heard of this brand before. I’m just getting to grips with some Ren products – still early days but if nothing else, I love the smell of them. Always a bonus. I changed from Lancome’s Hydra Zen when they changed the fragrance. Fickle. Yes, but these things matter.

      I’ve never heard of Ren – I’m a sucker for anything that has a beautiful fragrance to it though, and helps that the Grown products do. It’s been working well too, I’ve had pretty good skin since I started using it which says something since my skin is fairly sensitive.

    I absolutely love the gel cleanser and the rosehip & chamomile oil so I am definitely going to have to try all of these out! I am particularly keen to try the toner, what were you thoughts on that in particular? Great post 🙂

    We have done a review on Grown Alchemist as well, please check it out if you have a chance x

      I found the toner a little to astringent for my skin, and I have to be careful as I am prone to eczema and dermatitis on my face; if that’s not a problem for you, then I would definitely try it 🙂
