Using natural beauty products has many benefits. They’re earth-friendly, great for sensitive skin and, of course, they contain no artificial ingredients.
And because they contain no artificial ingredients, this means there’s no artificial fragrance so what you smell is completely natural.
You may think this could be a reason not to make the switch, but natural products have upped their game and managed to produce some sensational smelling stuff. Here’s where you should start…
#1 La Mav Sweet Orange Foaming Cleanser
With ingredients like ginseng, sugar cane and papaya extract, this foaming cleanser ticks both the floral and fruity boxes. Not only does it smell amazing, it’s also ideal for ageing skin.
“OMG this body wash smells amazing, the vanilla is sweet without being sickly and the scent just lingers a little after I wash. After showering with this wash, my skin was left soft, clean and smelling like vanilla. Even my partner commented on how nice I smelt after a shower, so it’s definitely a winner for me.” -MissChriss
The original rosehip scent you love is combined with aloe vera and jojoba oil to create an indulgent smell while you moisturise. It’s a girly, gentle fragrance that lingers on the skin for hours.
“Sukin’s Hand & Nail Cream has a light texture and it sinks into my hands quickly. The scent of this hand cream is a lovely combination of tangerine, mandarin, lavender and vanilla, which I find really appealing.” -Petal
#5 Vanessa Megan Essential Blend Natural Perfume ($34.95, 100mL, www.vanessamegan.com)
A 100 per cent natural alternative to perfume, this uplifting scent utilises the natural smell of geranium essential oil, lavender oil, patchouli, ylang ylang essential oil and rose. The result is a musky, floral fragrance that can be used both on the skin and as a room or linen spray.
“This spray is so nice! I love the way it smells and the way it feels on my skin. Very refreshing!” –JB beauty
