I have wanted to write this review since a while now, but as you notice, time flies and since weather is nice, I tend to spend more time outside than in front of my computer. Having said that, I am still keen to make you discover a very nice american green beauty brand that I learnt about only recently myself: Northport Naturals.
I had the opportunity to test 2 of their products. Read until the end, because you may be as happy as me in trying this brand.
Foaming facial cleanser ($12.00 for 120ml)
When I received this product, my first impression was: oh, what a small contenance! I am usually used to bigger flacons when it comes to cleansers. After a short spell of disappointment, I became soon very enthousiastic. Why?...there are various reasons, however the main one is that it leaves my skin super cleansed and really soft! I was not expecting the soft and velvety foam acting so nicely! Really practical with its pump, the cleanser delivers the right amount of product. The principal characteristics of the foaming cleanser is that it is made from plant-based saponified oils such as Coconut, Olive and Jojoba. Thanks to the Rosemary extract, skin is bright and purified. I have been loving using this cleanser morning and evening: perfect to wake-up skin in the morning and absolutely perfect to deep cleanse before going to sleep.The scent is bursting of refreshing citrussy (Lemongrass and Lemon) aroms, which is really uplifting, but nothing overpowering at all. Well, as an overall, I can't recommend this cleanser enough!
Conposition: organic saponified Coconut oil, organic saponified Olive oil, organic Sunflower oil, organic Aloe vera, Rosemary extract, organic Shea butter, Tea tree essential oil, Lemongrass essential oil, Lemon essential oil, citric acid.
Mineral ocean serum ($21.00 for 120ml)
With its gelified texture, this serum is a little different to the serums I have used so far. Transparent and really quickly absorbed, it is perfect to unify, calm and moisturise the skin. I usually use it every evening and find it perfect for the time being (during Spring/ Summer, I am on the hunt of really light texture which doesn't leave anything, not even a film on my skin). This one melts into the skin and leaves it silky smooth. It particularly helps to boost the skin healing processes since it contains Aloe vera leaf juice and restorative herbs but also to the presence of the ocean mineral complex. Its impressive anti-inflammatory and antispectic properties are due to the addition of organic Tumeric, Witch Hazel and Yarrow.The serum also contains irish Moss, a seaweed used as a natural thickener and acts as a softening component. Another really interesting ingredient is MSM which is a known organic form of sulfur. Naturally found in some plants and food that we eat, it plays a great role in improving the general condition of the skin. Every morning, my skin is unified and glowing and is just really well balanced. In short, I am very happy with the results I get with the mineral serum!
Composition: organic herbal infusion, organic Aloe vera leaf juice, Witch Hazel, Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), hydroxyethyl cellulose, carrageenan gum, ocean mineral complex, organic jojobal oil, spiralline, irish Moss, organic Tumeric, wildcraft Yarrow, tocopheryl acetate (Vitamin E), sodium benzoate, potassium sorbate, ethyl hexyl, glycerin.
Absolutely loving this powerful duo, working really well together and bringing the skin to its best!
