REVIEW: Birthday Gifts

My Birthday Products from Faithful To Nature

On the 6th of November, it was my birthday *YAY* and I was utterly spoilt! As a gift from my parents, I spent the weekend in Cape Town, which was amazing! I didnt know what I wanted for my birthday but knew I needed new make up brushes and wanted to swtich over to eco-friendly ones. I asked my Aunt who spoils me rotten pretty much everyday for a voucher from Faithful To Nature so that I could choose what I wanted.
I ordered the Inthusiam 7 piece make up brush set as well as the SOil Organic Rose Geranium Hydrosol.

The Inthusiam 7 Piece Make Up Brush Set is the perfect size for when I travel and is eco-friendly! The set includes the following brushes:
Mineral Powder Foundation brush
Blusher Brush
Eye Shadow Brush
Brow Brush
Lip Brush
Contour brush
Mascara brush

For my beauties out there, you all know that hydrosols are the hottest product especially for summer! At the amazing price of R31, yes R31 (amount correct when published) I had to get my hands on this product! Made from organic Rose Geranium Leaf Extract, this hydrosol is multi-purpose! It can be used as a facial spritzer, toner (my favourite use), a room spray.
Here's some more info about it from the Faithful To Nature website:
The Rose Geranium Hydrosol can be used in the following ways:
  • This products appealing fragrance means it works well as a body, room or linen spray.
  • It makes a good skin toner, helping to remove traces of cleanser and make-up without drying the skin.
  • Use it to transform existing face and body products by adding a little hydrosol to lotions, cleansers, face masks etc.
  • Its humectant (moisture attracting) properties make it effective when used as a daily compress over several weeks to soften the dry skin on elbows, knees and heels.
  • Being both cooling and anti-inflammatory, geranium hydrosol has been used effectively as a topical skin treatment for heat producing conditions, such as bites, rashes and the effects of sun exposure.
  • It can also be used as a spritz or beverage to help with menopausal flushes because of its balancing effect on heat.
  • Its use can even be used in baking sweets or to enliven a delicious martini!
Now you know why your product for the summer should be a hydrosol :)
A big thank you to my second family, the Grundlingh's for my voucher <3
The service from Faithful to Nature is fantastic! I even received a small body butter in my parcel as well as 5 seeds to plant to my own white pear tree :)
