It’s not every day that I have a chance to discover a new organic skincare company as lovely as Vedani Botanicals. Born from a passion for skin care 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 real art. These floral patterns look so adorable and luxurious! It’s not only the packaging that’s luxurious, but it also seems recently I’ve been lucky in discovering cleansers that suit my skin perfectly well and are enjoyable to use. It’s a big deal because my skin is usually very picky when it comes to skin care. If your skin is dry, dehydrated, and begs for moisture, keep reading.
Vedani Botanicals Rich Cleanser*
Vedani Botanicals describes this rich cleanser as a luxurious oil blend that leaves skin feeling balanced, healthy, hydrated, and comfortable. 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 is. It can proudly be called a holy grail for a sensitive, damaged or acne-prone skin.
If you have been reading my past posts, you 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 using heavier and softer cleansing products. The use of this cleanser is simple: just pump 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 the warm and damp face instead of using it on 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.
Rich Cleanser No.23 goes for $30/£24 for 50g.
Vedani Botanicals Rich Anti-Ageing Moisturiser*
Another goodie from Vedani Botanicals is its Rich Anti-Ageing Moisturiser. First of all, I want to comment on a subject about brands marketing their products as “anti-aging”. 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 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, which would let their customers 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. Three pumps of this oil fully cover 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 above, for better results, since they compliment each other so well. The moisturizer on its own is a little too light for my dry skin. I still could feel dry patches on my cheeks, which was solved by adding the Rich Cleanser to the routine.
Rich Anti-Ageing Moisturiser No.33 goes for $41/£33 for 30g.
