My second natural beauty review is a company that I have completely fallen in love with, Laurel Whole Plant Organics. They were the perfect fit for my first experience with an all-natural skincare company.
Laurel products are flower and herb based. Each and every product is made with integrity using the highest standard for organic, biodynamic and plants ingredients. There is an an obvious respect for plants and the positive energy of the company shines through from the moment you receive the product. They are handmade with 100% whole plant organic formulas that are raw and unrefined. There is no water, alcohol, fillers, toxins or synthetics of any kind, only beneficial active plants. This is a company that is setting an example and creating the experience that customers deserve. They are the future of beauty.
When I decided to start on this natural beauty adventure I had no idea how I would feel removing the companies I had relied on for so many years. Using Laurel makes me see that I have been missing out on not only giving the highest quality ingredients to my skin but also the experience and joy that comes from supporting a company that is changing the way we look at skincare, one plant at a time.
Laurel and her team completely embody everything the company stands for and the love put into the packaging and every detail is truly remarkable. These are products that are investment in yourself and you will feel proud to use as well as greatly benefit from. Trust me, your skin will thank you.
The eye balm is a blend of 24 beneficial active ingredients that works with all skin types. It is a combination high in vitamins and minerals that goes on smooth and feels gentle while addressing fine lines, puffiness, and dark circles. A few of the ingredients are Bilberry, Fennel, Licorice, and Nettle which reduce puffiness, inflammation, fluid retention, and dark circles. The essential oils in the product such as Lavender, Bergamot, Sandalwood, Myrrh, and Helichrysum assist in soothing and brightening the eyes.
My thoughts: From the moment I spun open the top I was in awe of how delicious smelling this eye balm is. It has a silky smooth texture that appears like it might be thick at first glance but accomplishes the difficult task of being rich and light at the same time. For those who have extremely dry eyes you might be able to get away with wearing this balm during the day but I found it better suited for night use (as per their recommendation). A little goes a long way.
I often have dryness underneath my eyes which can make any application of makeup difficult. Within the first night of using this eye balm there was a noticeable difference in the texture of my skin and the circles under my eyes. This is the best eye balm I have ever used and I will continue to use it every night.
Eye Balm Pricing: 10ml $60
The body oil is a silky blend of 13 beneficial active ingredients that works with all skin types. It is quickly absorbed with anti-aging benefits. Laurel’s Body Oil contains Avocado, Rosehip Seed, and Tamanu for their rich texture, rich vitamin and mineral content, and healing properties. Red Raspberry Seed Oil provides sun protection. The product also contains organic essential oils such as Rose, Sandalwood, Vetiver, Scotch Pine, and Cedarwood that bring the scent of California wherever you are.
My thoughts: This body oil is exactly the product I have been looking for. Previously I would use coconut oil post shower to moisturize and it would leave me feeling greasy and paranoid I would ruin clothing. With fall upon us and a chill in the air it was the perfect time to try out this oil and bring some California love into my life.
Within my first use I felt the benefits. It is nourishing without being oily and left my skin feeling hydrated. It has a calming and grounding scent that is not overpowering and attributes to the experience of using this oil. I have been putting it on post-shower and the benefits last all day. I can’t recommend this moisturizing and grounding body oil enough. I am looking forward to this product taking me through winter.
Body Oil Pricing: 100ml $80
Final thoughts: Using Laurel products is a joy and privilege. Laurel and her team make no sacrifices when it comes to the quality of their products and it shows from the moment you open the package to first application. I was blown away by how quickly I began seeing a difference on my skin. These are products that I will continue to use until there isn’t anymore and then I will purchase more, they are that fantastic. Laurel Whole Plant Organics has completely changed the way I view all-natural skincare. I am now more thankful than ever to be on this journey and learning more about natural beauty products every day. Using Laurel Whole Plant Organics is giving yourself that extra bit of love you deserve.
