It’s not everyday that I have a chance to discover a new organic skincare company as lovely as Vedani Botanicals. Born from a passion for skincare and aromatherapy, this brand has 17 years of expertise in creating pure skincare for women and men.
Now, please, let’s take a minute to admire the packaging! Organic skincare companies have definitely stepped up their game by turning their product packaging into true art. These floral patters are just so adorable and luxurious. And it’s not only the packaging that’s luxurious. It seems recently I’ve been very lucky in finding cleansers that suit my skin perfectly well and are very enjoyable to use. It’s a big deal, because my skin is usually very picky when it comes to skincare. If your skin is dry, dehydrated and begging for moisture at the moment, keep reading.
Vedani Botanicals Rich Cleanser for dry skin
Vedani Botanicals describes this rich cleanser as a “luxurious oil blend that leaves skin feeling balanced, healthy, hydrated and comfortable”. And the description couldn’t be more on point. This is an oil cleanser, which contains a bunch of rich organic oils such as hemp seed oil, avocado oil, hazelnut oil and, one of my favorites, tamanu oil. Tamanu oil is one of the most healing, rejuvenating and calming oils there are. It can proudly be called a holy grail for sensitive, damaged or acne-prone skin.
If you have been reading my past posts, you would know that, until recently, I was avoiding oil cleansing for reasons I can’t imagine myself. I still have a few foam cleansers on my wishlist, but for colder seasons, like fall and winter, my skin loves me for using richer and softer cleansing products. The use of this rich cleanser is simple: just pump out a few drops of this cleanser into your palm (the directions on the bottle recommend 2-3 pumps, but 5-6 pumps work better for me) and massage it onto the face and neck. I find that it’s best to use the cleanser on a warm and damp face instead of using it on a dry skin, but you can use it the way you prefer. The last step is to remove the cleanser (along with all the impurities) with a warm damp muslin cloth. Beautiful, soft and healthy looking skin is guaranteed.

Vedani Botanicals Rich Anti-Ageing Moisturiser
Another goodie from Vedani Botanicals is its Rich Anti-Ageing Moisturiser. First of all, I want to comment upon a subject about brands marketing their products as “anti-aging”. I admire Sarita from Edible Facial for raising important discussions. I strongly agree with opinions that aging isn’t something that should be cured, but rather embraced, so having the term “anti-aging” on a bottle of a skincare product might make women or men subconsciously feel guilty about being of a certain age. On the other hand, dry skin especially has a tendency of showing signs of aging, such as becoming thin and lacking moisture, too early, if not taken care properly (and it’s not only skincare products that I’m talking about). Which isn’t a good thing either, not because this somehow impacts beauty, but because these conditions might lead to other skincare problems like spots, broken capillaries, etc. Still, having these two arguments in mind, I think that it would be more beneficial for brands to use other phrases to describe their products so that their customers could identify with, instead of this one catchy “anti-aging” marketing cliche.
Speaking about the Rich Moisturiser, it’s a lovely blend of organic plant ingredients. It has a gentle geranium scent, which disappears once the oil is applied on the skin. 3 pumps of this oil fully covers my face and neck, leaving my skin comfortable and hydrated. It’s also fast absorbent with a satin finish. I recommend this moisturizer using together with Vedani Botanicals Rich Cleanser, which I mentioned before, for better results, since they compliment each other so well. The moisturiser on its own is a little too light for my dry skin. I still could feel dry patches on my cheeks, which was solved after adding the Rich Cleanser to the routine.
