I thought I’d review these masks together because they are all honey-based exfoliating masks with similar textures (they all have a jam-like consistency) and ingredients (turmeric, for instance, one of the many common ingredients). Also, while they all smell different, they have sweet/savoury scents that are somewhat related. Technically, the Josh Rosebrook is marketed as an exfoliator, but it’s meant to be left on the skin like a mask, so I’ve included that as well.

Every so often one encounters a brand that’s truly a cut above the rest. I’d heard only good things about U.S. based brand La Bella Figura (‘a beautiful figure’ in Italian), so my expectations were sky high. Victoria, the brand co-founder, handpicked the products below for my acne/pigmentation-prone skin. After using them for around two months, I’m truly impressed. La Bella Figura has become one of my favourite new-to-me brands. The products are meticulously formulated with a minimalist feel to them. Each ingredient is carefully chosen to serve a precise purpose and the products deliver. Without further ado, let’s discover the products!

I was really excited to receive this month’s Beauty Heroes box featuring Purify Face Wash and Activate Body Wash from American brand Linné. Being a Beauty Heroes ambassador, I received the box almost a month before its release, and I have been using these products regularly for the last month. Effective face washes are hard to find in the green beauty world, and I wanted to see if these worked… and I’m impressed.

My friend Samantha Sargent, the founder of green beauty store Be Naturally You, introduced me to Inlight just over a month ago. She is super selective about the brands she curates, and Inlight is no exception. This super niche brand from the UK, created by renowned skin expert Dr Mariano Spiezia, uses 100% organic ingredients to create some of the purest products available. Most of their products are water-free, and features the patented ‘Bio Lipophilic Matrix®, a specific blend of pure organic, cold-pressed plant oils carefully nurtured for their high biochemical affinity to the lipidic human skin layer.’
 
Recently, Inlight went through a rebrand, and the look and packaging of the products are now as luxurious as the formulas inside. Here are my brief reviews of three of their products (all gifted by Be Naturally You).

It’s rare that I fall in love with a brand almost instantly. I’d never heard about Manyo Factory before Franki and Seoul sent me their products to try. I was experiencing a bad case of breakouts on my jaw and temples, and these products (along with Carrot-a-Day from Earthwise Beauty) completely cleared up my skin. Without further delay, here are my thoughts about this fantastic Korean brand:
