Product Review – Botany Beauty (new items!), Malie Organics

Several months back, Malie Organics expanded on their Botany Beauty line (previously was just the Firming Cream) with the introduction of the following 3 products;

  • Cleansing Polish
  • Illuminating Moisturizer
  • Luxe Eye Cream

I shared my thoughts on the new products in a blog post, which I will share the link too however I will say this. I absolutely love the Cleansing Polish. It’s this perfect jelly like consistency that smells like heaven!

The Illuminating Moisturiser is perfect for under my makeup and provides a subtle glow and the Luxe Eye Cream is a thick cream perfect for the under eye area. You can find the full review of the above products here.

I was excited when they first launched the range, and after knowing how good these products are, I could hardly contain my excitement!

The newest products to the range are;

  • Coffee Fruit Mask
  • Kaua’i Clay Mask
  • Hydrosol Facial Tonic
  • Illuminating Serum

The new products are packaged in the signature Botany Beauty packaging, with the gold and white, which looks so luxurious and sits beautifully on the make up shelf!

Coffee Fruit Mask 15ml – $55USD
This is the most interesting product I have tried in such a long time. When you hear the word’s “mask” you expect something quite thick. Although this has the consistency more so of a serum but you apply it to cleansed skin and leave for up to 5 minutes.

The ingredients – just one! Hawaiian Coffee Fruit Extract which the Malie website states has more antioxidant power than any other fruit source.

Like most masks, I like to apply this just before popping in the shower as I have a tendency to get masks everywhere! Ha!

Kaua’i Clay Mask 120ml – $45USD
The Kaua’i Clay Mask is not like any clay mask I’ve ever tried. With one of the ingredients being Kaua’i Bentonite Clay it dries quite firm. However once I add a little water to remove the mask it turns to this beautiful consistency, very smooth and easy to remove.

My skin generally goes quite red when I use clay masks, however I don’t find that with the Kaua’i Clay Mask as it’s quite gentle.

Other ingredients include Aloe and Blue Green Algae, so much super power in the jar!

Hydrosol Facial Tonic 50ml – $45USD
The Hydrosol Facial Tonic is made from pure Jasmine and Rose Hydrosols. Not sure what a hydrosol is? A hydrosol is produced by distilling flowers and leaves, to form a gentle alternative to pure essential oils.

The Hydrosol Facial Tonic can be used as a toner, but what I love using it for is to spritz as my face mask dries to add a little moisture and some added nutrients!

I love how light this is on the skin, plus it smells absolutely divine!

Illuminating Serum 30ml – $45USD
Attention! This is now my new favourite, although the Cleansing Polish is a strong contender. I love this serum with all my heart, it’s light, perfectly packaged, smells divine and has a bunch of amazing oils (9 in total) to provide you with all the antioxidant power you need!

I love to use this at night, after I’ve finished my shower. I find the serum the perfect end to my skincare routine as I settle into bed for the night.

This is on my “must have” shopping list for when I am in Hawaii, I may even need to bring back a few bottles!

While I love the Malie Organics brand a whole lot, these new products are amazing! Again, I can’t fault them at all. Everything has been thought through, they are perfect in every way.

You can find all of the Malie Organics products on their website.

Not only is Malie Organics creating these beautiful products, they also do amazing work for their community. The #givingbackisbeautiful campaign runs on different days through the year and 100% of profits for that given day is donated to a selected community charity. So special!

Thank you Malie for all that you do, and for creating such beauty!
