Thank you Emm at Vintage and Vampires for the review of our Facial Steamers and Rosehip and Neroli Face Oil:
“Wild Medicines Helping Me Get Happy Skin Again…”
When I was younger, my mum used to have a facial steamer and would pop in a few drops of essential oils to the hot water and let the vapours from the steam work wonders on her skin. I was too young to be interested in doing the same at the time but i always loved the scent that would waft around the room whilst she was doing this.
My skin has been feeling very irritated and congested for the last few months, i’ve noticed a lot more breakouts and felt my skin looked bumpy since the holiday definitely but I put this down the sun lotion I was using and thought it would clear up in time. Nothing has really changed so I thought about what I could do or change in my daily skincare routine to make my skin happy again – it just suddenly occurred to me that i should try steaming my face. I googled a few things and was looking for facial steaming bags when I came across Wild Medicines; a must have brand for any green beauty lover!
Wild Medicines was created by the lovely Louise Bowery who believes we can both sooth our skin and our minds by using and listening to nature, which is all around us. We all have a fragrance that when we smell it, it has the power to move us and alter our moods… I absolutely love the scent of jasmine for its uplifting properties and woody scents such as patchouli to calm my mind. Her powerful and potent products are paraben & cruelty free and never test on animals.
I have only just started using the Neroli Facial Oil (£16 for 30ml) but even though I have oily skin, i’m finding it a real pleasure to use. I’ve not had any breakouts and don’t find it heavy, plus the scent it divine. I try to steam once a week and choose to use a facial oil every other night or so. I’m not sure why, I just don’t feel the need to use it every night, but i love using oils like this one when my skin needs a serious hit of moisture.
