At Lovegrove Essentials HQ we want to make sure you are getting the most out of your products. We aren’t the cheapest product range on the market, but we are pretty reasonable, once you know the quality of what you are getting! But what if you don’t actually know what you’re getting? With this in mind, and with our upcoming campaign for Organic September, we thought we would do a series of blogs on our products, so that you know just how many different uses each one has. How do we use them? How do our customers use them? What are the ingredients and what do they do? Over the next few weeks we will be posting all this information, plus testimonials from happy customers, bloggers, and celebrities.
What does it do?
Our Certified Organic Toning Mist refines the pores, is astringent and anti-bacterial and prevents cell damage. It has a light and refreshing unisex aroma, making it great for all to use. Using a toner ensures all last traces of cleanser are removed and prepares the skin for the next step in your skincare routine. This one adds a fine, cooling, soothing mist of moisture with fine droplets of essential oils which is wonderful in a hot or dry environment. It’s great over or under your make-up and can be used to refresh your face and body throughout the day, and is alcohol-free and suitable for all skin types.
What are the ingredients and what do they do?
Organic Rose Floral Water – adds and helps to retain moisture, it is suitable for normal, dry, mature and sensitive skin. Mildly astringent and cooling, it has a lovely smell.
Organic Geranium Bourbon Rose Floral Water – multi functioning, balances oily, dry, problem and sensitive skin. It’s also great for any issues resulting from hormonal imbalance.
Organic Witch Hazel – a strong antioxidant and a classic astringent skin toner, beautifully refreshing and ideal for reducing large pores or acne prone skin. Has many protective and healing properties, including reducing swelling and inflammation and is good for bruises or abscesses.
Organic Lavender Floral Water – antiseptic and anti-inflammatory, its balancing and soothing qualities make it ideal for irritated skin. It is also calming for the mind.
As a water-based product, the Toning Mist also requires protection against mould, yeast and bacteria, and for this we use an eco friendly preservative blend made up of: Benzyl Alcohol, Salicylic Acid, Glycerine, Sorbic Acid – a widely accepted blend, all of which can be included in natural and organic skin and hair products.
What can it be used for?
Can be spritzed all over the face, after cleansing, before make-up or to set mineral make-up and powders.
Also can be applied to cotton wool and swept over the face after cleansing.
Lovely and refreshing on the pulse points, neck and arms to cool down the skin.
Use as a soothing and brightening eye mask by spraying onto cotton wool pads and placing over the eyes, lying down, for up to 15 minutes.
Spray onto tired of puffy legs to revive and refresh, after the gym or a long day.
Try keeping in the fridge during hot weather for an extra-cooling effect.
We have also had great reports for this being used as a postpartum soothing and recovery spray, for your hard-working lady parts.
