Clean, Feel-Good Beauty

Inspired by clean eating, clean beauty is produced without nasties and harmful ingredients while looking out for the environment as well as our own bodies. We are essentially feeding our largest organ with the skincare we use, so if you're considering making the switch to a more toxin-free routine here are some beauty products worthy of a spot on your vanity.


A hugely popular product in the wide world of beauty (I'm sure you see it on Instagram at least six times a day), and there's a very good reason why. 90% of the formula is spiked with watermelon extract, plumping hyaluronic acid and the botanical addition of peony and jasmine for glowing supple skin (I featured it in My AM Skincare Routine). Their range of skincare are cruelty-free, vegetarian and free of sulfates and parabens among a long list of other not-so-nice ingredients that didn't make the cut. Glow Recipe care about sustainability and making a difference in reducing our carbon footprint with their shelfie-worthy jars that are made with 20% recycled glass and are 100% recyclable. Their cardboard packing is made up of certified recycled paper that is free of acids and heavy metals too.


A skin calming, alcohol-free toner infused with betaine (an active moisturiser sourced from sugar beet), vitamin c and rosa damascena oil. Aloe vera and chamomile work to soothe sensitive skin types and also makes for a handy on-the-go skin refresher throughout the day. Botani sustainably source only the most natural, raw ingredients that are organic plant-based and their products do not contain 'fillers', synthetic fragrances, artificial colours or other hidden nasties.


Inspired by the shades of Australia comes this super versatile eyeshadow palette with a richly pigmented formula containing desert lime, quandong and kakadu plum (all native to the country). The pop of lagoon blue screams springtime and the soft shimmers represent the sands of our beaches. I like that you get a generous sized mirror and a matte black to take your look from day to night with a smoky eye. We worry about what's in our food and we have been worrying about what's in our makeup too. You won't find unnecessary chemicals, synthetic ingredients or preservatives in their range of makeup products - they're all 100% natural and actually good for you.


Since the 19th century when Kiehl's began, they have been dedicated to using more sustainably sourced and naturally derived ingredients in their apothecary skincare. Responsible packaging and manufacturing are used to make a better future with a strong focus on environmental awareness (among a bunch of other amazing causes). One of their ultimate best sellers is this ultra hydrating face cream made with olive-derived squalane and glacial glycoprotein (extracted from sea glaciers - cool right?). It's highly effective at providing water replenishment throughout the day by absorbing moisture from the air for continuous hydration. It keeps your skin feeling plump, well balanced and protects it against the harsh Winter climate.
