Alenka from Alexami Cosmetics generously sent us her pure and natural skincare products from their Hydrabotanique collection to review this week. We received the Purifying Gentle Cleanser, Hydrating Toning Mist and 2 in 1 Hydrating Primer in a cute 3 pack and we also received their Exotic8 Facial Oil.
Alexami Cosmetics focus on the quality of their ingredients to produce a wonderful range of natural skincare products and quite rightly, Alenka is very proud of her products and business. They are simply, divine.
There are many reasons to use natural skincare products, less chance of adverse reactions, preventing cruelty to animals via testing, and also did you now the average woman ingests around 2 kilograms of chemicals via her skin each year from cosmetics like makeup, skin care lotions, and hair products? This is because humans absorb up to 60% of the substances applied to our skin. Those statistics alone should make you question the skincare range you’re using now.
After 2 years of research and development Alexami Cosmetics have launched their new Hydrabotanique® Collection and here’s what our reviewer had to say about the products she tested.
The Purifying Gentle Cleanser was simple to apply to my damp skin and a little went a long way! The smell was very fresh and uplifting and the day’s grime easily rinsed off my face and neck. After using the cleanser m skin felt very refreshed and clean. It also left my skin feeling soft.
Next I used the gorgeous Hydrating Toning Mist and I really loved this product! It contains Aloe Vera, White Tea and Chamomile and it smells so fresh and citrusy. The toner also left my skin feeling soft and moisturised.
Lastly I used the 2 in 1 Hydrating Primer. I wasn’t really sure how this would feel being a moisturiser and foundation primer in one but it worked beautifully. This product was my absolute favourite! It not only left my skin feeling very hydrated and fresh but so smooth. My foundation went on effortlessly and looked amazing. I recommend this product whole-heartedly and will be using it myself from now on.
In fact the three products used together over the last three weeks have made my skin look much better. I have a more ‘softer’ look to my skin now. It feels moisturised and looks a lot less dry. These products have made a positive difference and I’ll look forward to using them more in the future.
Our second reviewer got to use the Exotic8 Facial Oil exclusively. This concentrated oil blends together 8 powerful certified organic oils that help restore and regenerate your skin giving you a more youthful complexion. It’s 95% organic certified containing oils such as Chia, Pomegranate, Camellia, Rice Bran, Peach, Borage, Grapeseed and Seabuckthorn. High concentration of Chia oil increases the skins hydration levels, and improves elasticity to give skin a more supple, silky soft and youthful complexion.
Being an older woman I’m constantly struggling with dry, itchy skin on my face and neck so I was looking forward to using the Exotic8 Facial Oil from Alexami. I wasn’t disappointed, the oil certainly made my skin feel very soft, even after the first use, so I was impressed immediately. Over the course of just a week my skin felt much less irritated and itchy and the appearance overall improved. The smell was lovely, very fresh and not at all overpowering. Being oil I thought it would be oily on my skin but it wasn’t, it absorbed into my skin well and didn’t leave an oily feeling at all.
