Beyond Organic Rejuvenating Serum Review

beyond organic rejuvenating serum

I love to support British Beauty brands so I jumped at the chance to try something from skincare brand, Beyond Organic. Their products are full of goodness which isn't just good news for your skin but also the environment. The products are 100% natural and certified organic.

I was sent a little sample of the Rejuvenating Serum which I've been using every night for the past couple of weeks. It's highly concentrated and has an orange tint to it which gives skin a slight golden glow. It can be used on any skin type and considering it has quite an oily texture it worked great with my combination skin. The two main ingredients in this are Rosehip oil and Sea Buckthorn; these help to protect your skin from damage whilst penetrating deeply into the skin. This is quite a heavy serum so I just stick to using a few drops at night time. In the morning my skin is left feeling super soft and radiant. It's hard to describe the results but my skin just looks a lot clearer if I use this before bed! If you don't mind spending a bit more on organic skincare products definitely skin out this brand.

Current Morning Skincare Routine

Let's talk about skincare today. Skincare is something I enjoy and I actually look forward to cleansing my face. I'm all for doing more for your skin at night, less on your skin in the morning so I don't use a lot of products in the AM. Here's the lowdown on the skincare items I reach for through half open eyes every morning.

My skin is combination and get's oily around the t-zone section. In the morning I'll always cleanse my skin. Cleanser is the one skincare product I'm not very loyal to and always change up. At the minute I'm using the Eucerin Dermo Cleanser. I also love the No7 Cleansing balm, L'oreal Cleansing oil and the LE Hot Cloth Cleanser. After, I'll sweep over a toner as I love how refreshed and soothed my skin feels after. I'm currently liking the Time Delay Daily Exfoliating Toner. If my skin is feeling irritated or dull I'll spritz on a facial mist like the Avene Thermale Water. Next, I apply an eye cream before using moisturiser, a little tip I picked up from skincare expert, Caroline Hirons. I like the L'oreal Skin Perfection eye cream which is slightly tinted and helps to conceal my pesky dark circles. I finish it all off with a light moisturiser that contains SPF such as the Avene Light Hydrance. I'll normally change to a heavier cream in the winter but right now this is my summer skincare routine.

Let me know if you'd like to hear about my evening skincare routine or skincare extra's!

I Love Lip Crayons

I love lip crayons and as you can tell from the photo I love them a little too much. I'm starting to prefer them over lipstick I'm one Revlon Lacquer Balm away from a pencil case. They are so easy and effortless, plus anything that can be applied sans mirror is a winner for me. Here's a run down of my favourite lip crayon brands.

Bourjois Colour Boost Lip Crayon £8.00
A super hydrating and non greasy balm. This has SPF 15 and a waterproof finish so best for summer holidays!
Rimmel Colour Rush Balm £5.99
A whooping 12 different shades are available in these so hopefully something for everyone. These feel very light and moisturising on the lips. Slightly cheaper then the Revlon version but not as long lasting.
Revlon ColourBurst Lacquer Balm £7.99
A nourishing balm with a high shine finish. The shea, mango and coconut butter formula makes these really hydrating. I find these very long lasting and eventually fade to leave a subtle stain. Worth noting these have a minty scent.
Revlon ColourBurst Matte Balm £7.99
Finally a matte lip product that doesn't leave you with a prune-pout. This magic little pencil has a completely matte finish but a balmy-like texture - yep magic. My favourite shade is 'Elusive Insaisissable' which is a matte, nudish pink and makes me feel like Bridget Bardott.
Collection Work The Colour Lip Butters* £2.99 
A budget friendly version for those wanting to try the whole lip-crayon-balm-pencil-thing trend. The only downside to these is that they only come in four shades. Come on collection, I wanna see a red in there. Read my full review of these here.

Should you post a negative review?

Writing a negative review is a bit of a touchy subject. I know that some bloggers won't write a negative review and others don't have a problem with it. I'm no stranger to talking about products which didn't work for me but I understand why some people are unsure about it. For me, my blog is all about helping others and making sure you aren't wasting your money on products that don't work. I think as long as you keep it professional and honest you should post a negative review. I asked you guys on Twitter your thoughts on this weeks #BeautyDebate and here's what you had to say! 
Thank you to everyone who took part. Would you post a negative review?

p.s I've been short-listed in the Yahoo LFW competition, if you enjoy reading my blog you can vote for me to report live from London Fashion Week here :) thank you!
