The Future of Natural SkinCare is Low-Waste and Supported by Science

Au Natural Skinfood

Beauty is the smallest section of my blog because, to be honest, it’s difficult for me to find natural products I instantly fall in love with. I’ve had several samples sent to me over the years, and every once in a while I find something worth sharing and adding into my routine. Here is one of them! This skin care regimen is not only thorough, but it’s refillable, researched and all around ethical.

Reasons to Love Au Natural Skinfood 

Skinfood, rather than Skin’care’: Most skincare you find, today, acts more as a bandaid for skin issues. Au Natural works to improve the overall health of your skin by eliminating bacteria and strengthening the natural barrier. After Trinity BioActives Laboratories conducted cell research with the ingredients Active 16+ Manuka honey and pure bee venom, they found skin cell renewal increased by 80% compared to other natural skincare products.

Healthy, Ethical Ingredients: All the ingredients used in Au Natural products come from nature, and are ethically sourced in New Zealand. Besides the two ingredients mentioned above, Au Natural uses oils from the fruits of kiwi, avocado, grapes and many different berries. Read their entire list of ingredients here. It’s truly amazing what nature can do for our skin! 

Easy to Refill: This is such a high selling point for me because {like most of you} I am extremely tired of throwing out beauty bottles. They say we individually go through about 24 plastic bottles a year in our skincare routine - that’s 1,400 in a lifetime! Even if bottles are recyclable, there’s a high chance it won’t ever be recycled. When you need a refill of your Au Natural, they send it to in a biodegradable plant-based bag to help avoid sending more bottles to the landfill. How amazing is that?!

What I’m Using

Essentials Kit: I highly recommend starting with this because it’s a complete, yet easy, skincare regimen. It comes with their popular Remove Gentle Facial Cleanser, Prepare Brightening Lotion & Toner, AM Day Serum, PM Night Creme. My skin absolutely loves it all {but I have to say - I’m always a bit excited to put on the PM Creme because it smells so good - a great way to end the day!}.

Dr. Au Face Oil No.1 with Retinol: This beautiful, sparkly bottle of goodness is great for regeneration and the health of our skin cells. It absorbs easily into dry skin with no oil residue. I’m not super familiar with anti-aging oils, and this is the first one I’m trying… but I’m 30 this year, so it’s about time!

Dr. Au Superfruit Eye Serum: Such a nice, cooling sensation, this eye serum helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines, puffiness and dark circles. I love putting this on first thing in the morning.

On-the-Go Mineral Powder: If you are looking for a light powder foundation with SPF, this is the one! It packs an SPF of 25 without clogging your pores.
