“I create only green beauty products, which means they are not tested on animals, contain no nasties (are toxin free, chemical free, non GMO etc). I use only high quality petals, leaves, butters, oils, fruits and purified Australian water. I am profoundly committed to bringing sustainable products with environmental mindfulness. Therefore I keep the packaging of my products to a minimum. ” – Sonia Orts.

*Radiance Mask 50ml AU$58

This radiance mask is made from finely ground botanical and mineral active clays blended with extracts of petals and roots to form this deeply purifying mask. It is a powerful purifier, a deep cleanser, and is said to be a healing mask that helps to draw out impurities that leaves noticeably reduced blemishes and blackheads. It can also help to especially restore tired and neglected skin.

Its key ingredients include: zeolite (pearly golden mineral that can help to increase activity in clays and is said to hold amazing healing properties–have an ability to draw out toxins and reduce swelling), pale pink Australian clay (assists with hydration, skin firmness and refines delicate lines, and overall improve texture of skin), and rose petals (contains antioxidant properties–balance, restore and hydrate, as well as to help regenerate your skin complexion, leaves refresh and soothing sensation).

This mask is easy to use as you mix together with water to create a paste. I rub a small amount between my hands then apply a thin layer to my face avoiding my eyes and lips. It dries almost immediately, as it leaves skin feel a little taut, but in a way that it doesn’t dry out my skin or feel inflamed. I used a warm soaked muslin cloth to remove the mask after it had dried and noticed my skin feel instantly smooth, soft, pores reduced in size as it left a healthy clean appearance. This product is suitable for all skin types.

*Aqua Serum Elixir 50ml AU$87

The aqua serum elixir has a silky gel-like consistency that is suppose to help improve skin’s health and restore  natural beauty. The alchemical treatment is said to stimulate natural activity by moisturising the skin and exfoliate dead skin cells to promote a renewed flawless skin.

Its key ingredients include: organic rose (rose hydrosol extract and essential oil: antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antioxidants, relaxing), indigo naturalis (gives a vibrant blue hue to the formula as a result of the fermentation and oxidisation process of the plant, also help to treat inflammation), aloe vera (all-purpose that is rich in vitamins, minerals, antioxidant to keep skin firm and hydrated), aqua aura gem (help with stress-related and immune system issues to help build a strong protective skin barrier), tanzine aura gem (support optimal metabolic and hormonal balance), and blue sapphire (the gem encourages and brings lightness as it restores balance within the body.

This product is a great hydrating base, a step to be use after cleansing and pre-moisturising the skin. This will help to refine pores and promote firmness and elasticity. It can also be used as an anti-ageing treatment as it can help to reduce free radicals that causes premature ageing. A great product that helps to remove skin spots caused by sun exposure, but in order for this to properly work, you will need to use this in your PM skincare routine daily for at least 3 months.

Overall, I found using both of these products as part of my evening skincare regiment to be a successful marriage. The radiance mask works to minimise the size of my pores and keeps my skin feeling soft and smooth as I use this about twice a week. It doesn’t break out my skin and nor does it feel too tight, drying or leaves redness. The aqua serum elixir is a wonderful base for dry skin beauties as you can layer this with other rich serums or a rich moisturiser that will give your skin that extra boost, nourished and supple skin.
