Grown Alchemist Deep Cleansing Facial Mask – Detox à la LeenLovesStyle

Grown Alchemist has earned a spot in my skincare routines, there’s no doubt about it. The Antioxidant+ Facial Oil is my go-to morning facial oil ever since I discovered it (bottle nr 3 and counting), the Tinted Hydra-Repair Day Cream is turning out to be the perfect summer base, both in terms of hydration levels and coverage, and the Grown Alchemist Deep Cleansing Facial Mask joined my, ahem, rather extensive mask collection earlier this year. The Australians sure know the power of nature, and wheatgerm, white clay, gingko and cranberry formula of this mask is the proof in that proverbial pudding. Cleansing masks usually have me running for the hills, especially the pink clay ones, as they’ve created horror scenes on my skin more than once. Think Hellraiser, but more blotched… Fancy! Imagine my surprise (and relief) when I felt (quite literally) that the super fine white clay in this mask surprisingly makes for an extraordinarily gentle — yet effective — treatment.

Grown Alchemist Face Oils

Heads up: I am a face oil addict. Hard core face oil afficionado here. You can strip away anaything else from my skincare routine or even entire beauty cabinet, as long as I’ve got my oils, I am happy.

I know I was. No, no, I am not talking about Aesop or Antipodes here, but about the hidden gem that is Grown Alchemist. Oh, and did I mention it was Australian? Australian + botanical +sleek, minimalistic old-school looks = a triple winner! Why just try one when you can go for two, so I went and tried both the Grown Alchemist Antioxidant Rosehip & Camellia Seed Oil and Antioxidant+ Borago, Rosehip & Buckthorn Berry Facial Oil. Both are 100 % ACO certified and sustainably sourced, so the difference between them is to be found in their formula and purpose. Look at it as a booster and …

Wednesday Wishlist – Grown Alchemist Hydra Repair Cream Masque

A new Wednesday, a new wishlist item, or so it seems. Proof that big love can come from small packaging: the Grown Alchemist Hydra Repair Cream Masque. And when I say small, I really do mean small, this latest infatuation actually stems from a sample sachet. I received a sample of this mask with a Philvert order of some other Grown Alchemist goodies (later more on those), gave it a try, and ended up squeezing every single last bit out of the sachet (actually cut it right open so that all could be used) for three more uses…. Rich, creamy, longlasting comfort and plumpness due to the Olive extract and Geranium Oil, and intense hydration thanks to the Babassu, hyaluronic acid and Camellia Oil.  It must be love, love, love….
