Five to Try | The Organic Pharmacy

Happy Monday, lovelies! The rain poured down all weekend long, but the gloomy weather can’t put a damper on my excitement to share with you five new beauty products I absolutely love.

My dear friends at Elements Beauty Shop loaded me up with some amazing samples from The Organic Pharmacy, a new line they are carrying in the boutique and online. I’ve been blown away by the quality and effects of this UK skincare line, and really enjoyed doing some research into the history of the company, as well. The Organic Pharmacy’s high-quality products provide the tools needed to restore the body and bring about balance and health. And, celebrities like Madonna, Reese Witherspoon, Demi Moore and Sarah Jessica Parker are all loyal customers to the Organic Pharmacy.

If this chick is 52 and looks like THIS, I’ll have what she’s having.

So, here are my Five to Try from the Organic Pharmacy. All of these products are available in-store or online at Elements Beauty Shop. Remember to use my code “sweetcaroline” at checkout for 10% off!

Cleopatra’s Body Scrub

Cleopatra’s Body Scrub is a fabulous sugar and salt scrub that will remove dead skin, detoxify and moisturize all at the same time. Leaves skin super soft and polished to perfection. A totally luxurious experience with rose petals and the delicious floral scent of Ylang Ylang and Rose. This body scrub smells like a high-end spa, and left my skin soft and smooth. This scrub will be especially useful in the colder months, when skin tends to be dry and flaky.

Carrot Butter Cleanser

Carrot Butter Cleanser is a balm cleanser that melts on contact with the skin. It is the number one best-seller and apparently, a favorite among celebrities! The Carrot Butter Cleanser is infused with antioxidant Carrot and Calendula as well as decongesting Rosemary and soothing Lavender for a really deep but gentle cleanse. It removes eye make-up as well as dirt and pollution. The skin is fully cleansed of the daily build up of impurities and left feeling incredibly soft, smooth and radiant.  Warning: This isn’t your mama’s cleanser. The first time I washed my face with it, I wasn’t sure I was using a cleanser or a body butter! But after my first use, my skin looked and felt super hydrated and nourished. I will definitely be buying a full size of this once I finish up my current cleanser – I am hooked!

Double Rose Rejuvenating Face Cream

I was intrigued by this as soon as I read “Double Rose!” My friend Christina of Tiramisu for Breakfast and I are both suckers for anything with rose in it, and this one definitely did not disappoint! A light but nourishing cream with purifying Rose and nourishing Rose Hip blended with Ginger, Gotu Kola and Marigold to promote cell regeneration, reduce broken capillaries and make the skin glow. The light yet hydrating action protects and stimulates circulation, restoring elasticity and radiance, leaving the skin hydrated and glowing. I felt like I could feel my skin plump up with hydration as soon as I applied it. It’s luxurious but non-greasy and light, and it gave my skin a wonderful glow for the rest of the day.

Antioxidant Face Gel

Developed using the latest cutting edge research, the Antioxidant Face Gel is a powerful anti-ageing treatment that lifts, tones, repairs and regenerates the skin. The gel is water-based and light enough for oily skin, plus the herbal extracts and cosmeceuticals minimise pores. It is rich in marine algae, sea minerals, nutrients, collagen boosting herbs and cosmeceutical vitamins.  I loved the citrus smell of this gel — the lemony aroma is a great pick-me-up in the morning! This felt great going on and I could even feel my skin lifting a bit after application. Apparently, this is best used in tandem with the Antioxidant Face Firming Serum, so I’m definitely going to have to check that one out too.

Rose Plus Brightening Complex

The Rose Plus Brightening Complex formula reduces uneven skin tone, dark spots and suppresses melanin synthesis without toxicity. The formula also increases firmness and elasticity. Studies have shown that after 3 months of twice a day use in conjunction with Antioxidant Serum and Gel and daily SPF, skin will appear 81% lighter with intensity of dark spots reduced 90% and pigmentation irregularities faded by 75%.

I was a little skeptical of this serum because I don’t currently suffer from uneven skin tone or dark spots (knock on wood that stays true!) However, this serum was amazing. It soaks in quickly, and almost instantly brightened up my complexion. I felt like I had just had a facial after using this- my skin was absolutely radiant.  I also felt my skin lifting and firming as it soaked in. This definitely felt like a “celebrities’ best kept secret,” for sure.

All in all, I am a true believer in the power of the Organic Pharmacy now. OP- you’ve got a convert!

While some of the products are on the pricier side, I truly believe that an investment in your skin is one of the best investments you can make. Even your favorite Manolo Blahniks will show signs of wear and tear if you don’t take care of them– and they may eventually go out of style. However, beautiful, luminous skin never goes out of style– isn’t it worth the investment?
