Bondi Chic Skincare + GIVEAWAY

I was really lucky last month to be invited up to learn about a new skincare brand on the market in Australia - Bondi Chic. They are a new, innovative range of skincare products following a minimalist approach to skincare. Stay tuned to find out how you can win some of your own products to try out.

So many skincare brands these days are based on science and include lots of different ingredients, a lot of which are unnatural and synthetic. These ingredients are not always good for your skin and can lead to irritations or highly sensitive skin. Bondi Chic wanted to create products that are based off science, but include ingredients that are good for you and your skin. Their Four Seasons Technology has combined natural and green chemical ingredients to develop unique formulas that deliver clean and safe beauty products that will benefit your health. They want to allow you to feel like your best you, starting with skincare. 

I have been trying out a couple of their products over the last month. A moisturiser, toner and fact mist. Let's have a chat about these. 

Zinc Ionised Blue Mountains Natural Spring Water Toner / $45 

Refreshing, Hydrating, Smoothing, Glowing 

Our zinc ionised Blue Mountains Natural Spring Water Mist prevents environmental pollutants from penetrating the skin, creating an extra shield to keep dryness, irritation, and wrinkles away. A daily spritz of this super-protective spray will rejuvenate dull skin with white peony extract and add a quick burst of moisture to restore the skin’s water balance. The unique two-in-one formula of toner and mist will add all the antioxidant vitamins and hydration to your face without disturbing your makeup or skin care.

This was a product I was super excited to try out. It is a mist toner, that you apply once you have finished cleansing. I was quite surprised by the power of this mist. It is a strong mist that only needs to be sprayed twice to cover your whole face (who else is a fan of decent mists that actually spray a decent amount of product!). I have found that this mist leaves my skin feeling really refreshed and hydrated. I have definitely noticed that my skin has been looking brighter and more alive while using this as well. I like that it doesn't leave my skin feeling oily, or like I have applied another thick layer of skincare, like with some toners. It is light and super easy to include into your routine as well. 

Four Seasons REJUVEN8 Cream / $85 

Rejuvenating, Revitalising, Regeneration

Rejuvenate your skin with Caviar and Australia’s best-kept skin care secrets. This total cream is enriched with over 8 transformative ingredients (Caviar, Kakadu Plum, Niacinamide, Moringa, Peptides, Hyaluronic Acid, Ginseng Root Ferment and Noni) to help reduce the signs of aging. The multitasking treatment will help to improve elasticity and firmness, leaving your skin feeling replenished and reinvigorated due to four types of peptide complex components included in this concentrated moisturiser.

I do love natural moisturisers. Especially ones that still have powerful ingredients that help to continue to target skin concerns, even as the last step of your routine. I was really excited knowing that this moisturiser had Niacinamide and Hyaluronic Acid  inside, two of my favourite ingredients in skincare. It is a really simple moisturiser that doesn't have any added colours or scents. What it does have inside are some really lovely ingredients that work really well together. While I have only been using this moisturiser for about a month, my skin has been loving it. It is quite a thick consistency, but melts into the skin. It doesn't feel heavy on the skin, despite the texture. It leaves my skin feeling really hydrated and soft. Being used in conjunction with the toner, my skin has been looking brighter and I haven't had any problems with dryness while using them. 

Australian Blue Mountains Natural Spring Water Hydrating Mist / $25

 Soothing, Brightening, Moisturising and Nourishing

The Blue Mountains Natural Spring Water is famous for being one of the purest waters in Australia. To help you achieve beautiful and healthy skin, we’ve improved the spring water by ionising it to soothe skin irritations and improve skin troubles. The added Sodium PCA creates a protective layer on top of your skin to fight dryness and retains moisture by rebalancing the water levels in the skin to leave your face feeling hydrated and dewy with a natural glow.

Once upon a time, I was a not a fan of mists. I thought they were gimmicky and didn't really do much for your skin. Late last year, I had my mind changed when I started to use some face masks that actually pack a bit of a punch. This face mist  has joined that list as well! It has a powerful, yet fine spray that covers your face evenly. You can use this mist during your skincare routine, at the end of your routine as the last step, or throughout the day to refresh your skin. I love the cooling and hydrating effect it has on the skin. You spray, and your skin feels instantly refreshed, looks more hydrated and glowy. 

I have been loving these products so much as a simple skincare routine. They are simple and fuss free, but will help your skin to look refreshed, feel hydrated and illuminated. If you want to win your very own set of these three products from Bondi Chic read the instructions below:
