The weather may be confusing, but the inevitable is upon us, the nights are drawing in and the sun is decidedly disapearing as the days go on. Which means it's time to re-stock the bathroom cabinet and get ready to step up your skin care regime for winter.
The natural beauty market can be confusing, and wandering if the product is actually natural or just has some natural ingredients can be a mindfield. Not to mention confusing labelling and miraculous claims.
In our recommendations we look out for non-synthetic ingredients, so essentially anything that was not made in lab somewhere.
We've rounded up a few low key brands that are definitely worth the investment.
