Zuanna Cosmetics

After exploring some other things recently, it's time to bring it back to another local Aussie brand - you know they are my favourite to share! Today it is all about Zuanna Cosmetics, a NSW based natural skincare brand. 

Zuanna’s formulas have been carefully developed to protect, nourish and provide goodness to the skin. They focus on keeping ingredients minimal and as pure as possible. They use only the finest quality which are naturally derived and are produced using minimal processing methods. They also pride themselves on using ingredients source from local suppliers (which is another huge plus for me! I love locally sourced anything!). They are free from any nasties such as parabens, sulphates and fragrances. Made with 100% natural, organic and wildcrafted, vegan friendly ingredients. Each unique product is made with love and your wellbeing in mind. Feel confident knowing you won't find any nasties in Zuanna products! You know what else I love? They donate a portion of their profits to charitable organisations, and are currently working with Safe Steps - Family Violence Response Centre.

Virgin Rose Facial Hydrosol*

Zuanna’s Virgin Rose Facial Hydrosol locks in moisture, tones and hydrates. Made from 100% Bulgarian organic roses, this product has a fresh, floral aroma and is used to retain moisture and revitalise the skin. 

I haven't used too many facial sprays, I've always kind of gone 'What's the point of a facial spray? Does it really work?!' Yes. I am one of those people. But I was open to being invited into the world of facial sprays, and what better one than this one. I found it really interesting that it uses Bulgarian Organic Roses, what an interesting ingredient! First impressions - I didn't love them smell, it wasn't one that I would typically go for. Maybe that is from the rose basis, which isn't one of my favourite scents. However, once I sprayed it on my skin I did notice that it was much more subtle and not too noticeable one on the skin (WIN!). 

While I wouldn't rely on a hydrosol as the basis to hydration in my skin, I did notice that a little spritz helped my skin to feel refreshed and instantly hydrated. It is the perfect size for your handbag as well, and a spritz throughout the day definitely left me feeling instantly refreshed and hydrated, particularly on those days where my skin is feeling a little dry or dull. On those days, my skin typically goes dry and cracked, but a couple of spritz of this hydrosol throughout the day and my skin still looked just as good at the end of the day. 

The final verdict? Despite the smell of the spray (which dissipated once sprayed on the skin), I am a huge fan. It is hydrating and refreshing in every way! Do be careful with the glass bottle, I may have dropped and smashed my bottle last night, luckily after I took photos and tried it. The real indicator I liked this product? I was almost in tears at it being broken. If you're really that sad, then you definitely like it!

Flawless Elixir - Naturally Tinted Facial Oil*

Zuanna’s Flawless Elixir Tinted Facial Oil is an all-in-one unique facial oil formulated with powerful cell renewal ingredients with the benefit of a tint. Not only is this product packed with highly nutritious and beneficial ingredients, the Flawless Elixir also provides the skin with a little glow lifting the look of tired sallow or dull and discoloured skin. Buriti and seabuckthorn oil are natural free radical blockers while Argan oil is packed with antioxidants to help regulate and balance skin’s natural oils.

I was immediately intrigued by this product when I saw that it was naturally tinted. I HAD to know what that meant! I love Argan oil and have been intrigued by Seabuckthorn recently. I haven't, however, heard of Buriti. It is a powerful antioxidant, reducing potential inflammatory damage to the skin. The photo-protective properties of the oil help skin cells to cope better with potential UVA and UVB damage. Having a deep rich red colour it works perfectly in our Flawless Elixir. For a full description of the ingredients head over to the Zuanna Ingredient Showcase.

I used this oil twice daily, before my moisturiser. First things first, it is sooo hydrating! My skin was feeling so refreshed and hydrated after using this oil. Any dryness or irritation I had in my skin cleared up extremely quickly. The 'natural tint' comes from the yellowy/orange tint the oil has. While it's not like a BB cream or a foundation, the colouring gives a lovely glow and does help to even out your skin tone. I always feel like I've been out in the summer getting a lovely summer glow (without the damaging UV rays of course) after applying this oil. While I'm yet to notice any changes in regards to acne, I do find it has helped with reducing redness and evening out my skintone (especially with the natural tint) and leave it feeling so hydrated! 

I have really enjoyed trying these two products from Zuanna Cosmetics! Being so natural, they are so gentle on the skin and are both extremely hydrating. The packaging is gorgeous, and the brand itself is true to every word they say. I definitely want to try more from Zuanna now!
