Hello Grown Alchemist

Post-vacation R&R. 

It's the steps, appointments and routines we need to treat our under-maintained selves to after too long living our of a suitcase. Getting the roots re-done, hair layered, the whole shebang. Simply, preparing for a more dignified return to society.

Having barely recovered from almost 24 hours in transit from Amsterdam to Melbourne, I am much in need of some alchemy. Claiming to only use the most potent organic botanical ingredients and powerful natural actives, Australian made Grown Alchemist is ideal for those who are conscious of ridding their skincare routine of harmful chemicals. Botanical lovers rejoice. 

Free of many of the artificial skincare nasties our beauty cabinets are laced with- Grown Alchemist's "intensive body cream with rosa damascena, acai and pomegranate" is a sure fix for my cracking skin. I was a little apprehensive of it's rose scent, but thankfully it is blended perfectly with pomegranate that it tastes fresh and almost citrusy.

Generally speaking, I am disproportionally fearful of serums because of my temperamental skin type, so I tend to only use them on the rare occasion if my skin is going through a dry patch or could use some severe hydration. The Grown Alchemist "anti-oxidant treatment serum with rose hip and camellia seed" is a immensely hydrating product because its oily consistency.

The Grown Alchemist "age-repair eye cream with tetra-petide and centella" is (as its name suggests) meant to tackle those signs of ageing in the eye area, but after a much use I found that it was also really good at instantly brightening up my eye area and reducing those dark circles (and all signs of lack of sleep.)

I am by no means strictly a organic skincare user, as I swear by Sunday Riley and Dr. Dennis Gross concoctions, but I do appreciate the goodness of adding such chemically pure products to my routine.

Maybe one day I'll be fully converted to the world of raw bioactive's, but not yet.
