The end of the year is fast approaching and our team has hand-selected a list of recent beauty products we had the pleasure of trying and helped us to get through the last months of the 2021.
Want to find out what they are? Look no further than below…
Olverum Bath Oil
As you may know, we have been loyal fans of the luxury skincare brand Olverum for a while now - they are committed to using solely natural ingredients and their products enhance health in every possible way. This time, we tried the luxurious bath oil from their wide range of products, set to ease stress and relax tension in both mind and body.
The oil comes in a small bottle that gives off a forest scent as soon as you open it. Just one drop is enough to flood your bathroom with an impressive and indulging fragrance and leaves your skin beyond hydrated and smooth. They promise an uplifting feeling and it couldn’t be more satisfying. If you are looking to disconnect from the world and experience pure relaxation, this would be the perfect choice for you.
What we look for when it comes to bath salts is a product that helps with maintenance of the skin while simultaneously creating a calm environment to get rid of any stress accumulated during the day. And Olverum bath salts tick all of these boxes. Powered by a blend of essential oils, mineral rich dead sea salt, Kalahari sea salt and numerous minerals that your body craves such as magnesium, potassium and calcium, after using this product for a while, we can confidently say that it helps detoxify the body and to feel completely renovated and relaxed. It leaves the skin feeling and looking hydrated after only one use. We couldn't recommend it enough.
It’s always hard to find the perfect mask or moisturiser to keep your skin radiant, especially during winter when it tends to feel dry due to the weather. Florbela - Enzyme Mask from Catarina Barbosa has been such a great discovery we wish we had discovered it earlier. This luxury mask is powered by a mix of enzymes, essential oils and oat silk and is all about natural ingredients. After having used it for a few weeks, we have seen an improvement in our skin, our complexion looks fresh, vibrant and rejuvenated, and the skin texture is completely transformed. If used consistently, only a small portion of their papaya and pineapple blend will exfoliate and leave your skin glowing.
Skin is a reflection of youth, and who wouldn’t like to look forever young? Although that is impossible, we have discovered a gem that helps to make us look prettier, fresher and younger while we can, Eau de Ki. Its secret: Asian medicinal ingredients (jujube, ginseng, umbrella polypore, reishi, lili of the valley roots, cnidium rhizome, Chinese peony, mandarin peel) and 4 western aromatic plants (rose water, rosemary, white birch and linden).
Since The Sybarite team got sent this product, we have incorporated it into our daily routine. We have truly found a product that cleans your skin in depth, eliminating all impurities accumulated throughout the day. We have been using it twice a day - in the morning to achieve that fresh look and at the end of the day, to clean off the day and achieve a radiant look. A little goes a long way - just a gentle touch on a cotton pad will be more than enough. If you are looking for the perfect product to fight external aggressions, combat the signs of aging and have a radiant and youthful skin, Eau de Ki should be in your list now. A product that truly speaks for itself.
Summer: a time for beach days, pool parties, and vacations. It’s also a great time for a skincare makeover, so here are lifestyle contributor Cherelle Mukoko's favourite products for the upcoming months.
Inspired by Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ashmira Botanica focus on the concept of "treating your skin from the inside out", and have created a bespoke whole-body experience to help you achieve that 'glow' the winter weather has dulled.
