I’m always on the look out to try new & exciting beauty products, i love trying new things but sometimes the whole process can be a bit overwhelming. With the amount of brands out there it can be difficult for anything to stand out, but for me MixNature have done just that. They are an affordable skincare brand with all natural, vegan, handmade products BUT the real game changer for me is that their products can be customised! Yes, you can quite literally design your own face mask on the website with just a few simple clicks.
The products are made fresh when ordered in their ultra modern laboratory meaning that when you receive your products they are only a few days old, a huge contrast to a lot of shop bought products which could well of been sat on the shelves for 6 months. Of course there are no nasty ingredients involved, they are made up of all natural, active ingredients which are much better for your skin than a chemical filled product. And of course the best part of about the products of all – you get to create your own!
The first step to making your personalised skincare is to sign up on the MixNature website. This is a super quick and easy sign up – done within seconds. You are then able to choose what products you would like to create. There are so many different options for face, body and hair! I decided to have a look at the face products first, and went on to choose a face scrub. When it comes to face scrub having something super gentle and natural for me is a must as i hate the thought of rubbing something full of nasties into my skin. When you first select a product you are then prompted to choose your skin type, if you’ve read here before you will know my skin is very dry, so of course thats the option i went for. Then comes the fun part – you have the option to add 1 – 6 ingredients from 3 different categories: essential oils, extracts and activating agents. Within each category there are a wide range of choice, each ingredient is explained in further detail and tells you its benefits – this is really useful as of course you can tailor your product to your exact skincare needs. In my face scrub i decided to go for:
ECHINACEA EXTRACT – Retains moisture levels giving the skin a healthy glow.
LAVENDER ESSENTIAL OIL – Helps to refresh and rejuvenate the skin. Soothes itchines s and reduces redness.
BIO KERATIN – Irons out wrinkles making the skin velvety.
The process of making the product was really fun, simple and informative – very easy to follow and also really interesting to learn about what each ingredients is useful for. After my scrub i then went on to create a liquid soap, face mask, shower gel and hair mask. I completed my order and was really surprised at how the total order amount, each product came in at around £10 which is amazing considering they are personalised and of such high quality. Skincare can be very expensive so its really nice to find something thats so reasonably priced. Shipping is to all over the EU and free when you spend £45 or more. I was very surprised to see that delivery only took 1 – 3 working days, i expected a lot more considering the products are unique and handmade in the lab.
When my products arrived i was absolutely blown away by how cute the packaging was! The box is super pretty and personalised which a really nice touch, and the the products themselves look absolutely gorgeous. I am an absolute sucker for packaging so this was an instant YES from me haha!
I was super excited to try the products out and decided to use to face scrub and shower gel immediately. Yes, i’m one of those people who the moment i get something new i HAVE to try it there and then haha. Firstly can i just say the products smell AMAZING, they ooze freshness. When using the face scrub i noticed that the product was thick in consistency but super gentle on the skin. I find some exfoliating products very harsh and they irritate my dry skin, but this one i would really recommend. The shower gel as expected smelled amazing and left my body feeling moisturised.
When using the face mask i decided that i was going to use it as an overnight mask. It worked a treat! I woke up in the morning with my skin feeling super soft and hydrated ready to take on the day! The product is an absolute dream to apply, really cooling and refreshing for the summer months! Hair masks are not a product i use very often, so my hair had a real treat when it came to using this product. I could definitely tell my hair had undergone some well needed TLC after applying the hair mask, i noticed it felt a lot softer, more shiny AND less knotty when drying which is unheard of with the length of my hair haha! I added tea tree oil as one of my ingredients into the mask as this is brilliant for your hair and scalp.
Overall i am really impressed with MixNature and will definitely be making another order. Not only is the order process fun and unique, the products themselves are high quality (AND SUPER PRETTY).
