VERDURA naturalternatives: An Introduction
By The Beauty Endeavor

VERDURA naturalternatives is hand crafted, vegan and uses natural, organic and wild crafted plant based ingredients. I’ve come to really enjoy these smaller hand crafted indie brands as they really put a lot of time into their formulations. I’m almost always a fan of the facial oils by brands such as VERDURA. I was sent three items to play with-LOTUS Hydrating Mist, BERRY Facial Serum & Bamboo Diva Facial Cleanser. First off I must say the minimalistic glass bottles are killer, very aesthetically pleasing, heavyweight and luxe.

CURRENT FAVORITES & PRODUCT OBSESSIONS
By The Beauty Endeavor

VERDURA naturalternatives' Lotus Hydrating Mist is a new brand and product to me. I love the glass bottle & fine mist. It contains glycerin, lotus and hibiscus extracts, tamarind, cucumber, green tea, aloe, chamomile & allantoin. Lotus extract is supposed to help shrink pores and hibiscus has been called the botox plant. It gives the mist it’s pink color. More to come.

6 NATURAL SKIN CARE INGREDIENTS
YOU MIGHT NOT HAVE HEARD OF
By Alexandra Donaldson


The Blue Tansy oil, which comes from a plant in the chamomile family, native to North Africa, is often used in aromatherapy, but is making it’s way to skin care as a more prevalent ingredient. It’s bright blue in colour, predictably, and has strong antioxidant properties, meaning it can fight inflammation and can help balance the skin. Those with sensitive skin might want to take note. Plus, its herbaceous smell is the perfect way to get ready for bed.

START WITH SOAP FEATURING VERDURA’S CITRUS SMOOTHIE SOAP BAR
By Sunkissed Kate

The citrus smoothies soap bar is a delicious option if you want a sweet smelling soap to lather up on. This is by-far the most amazing smelling bar of soap I have ever smelled!
The name is bang-on, it smells like a lemony, orangy dream! It almost smells like an orange creamsicle, yummm!!
This soap lathers beautifully the scent clings to your skin for hours after. The ingredients are super clean and there is absolutely no artificial fragrance used in this soap (or any products from Verdura).
I’ve never been disappointed with a Verdura product, and most have become instant favorites! You can read about the Lotus Hydrating Mist and Berry Serum, Namaste body oil, and Aquamarine Salt Glow body polish to get some gift ideas this holiday season!

ALL-NATURAL FACIAL MISTS TO KEEP YOU DEWY ALL. WINTER. LONG.
By Michelle Bilodeau Author, Flare Magazine

One way to up your moisture factor is with a toning mist. When used after you cleanse, toners can help refresh skin and prep it to hold onto more hydration from your day or night cream. But we really love mists because they do two more things: they work to keep skin dewy, and when spritzed over makeup, they help set it.
And the hydration doesn’t have to stop after your morning routine. “I love it for midday,” says Edwards. “It’s 3 p.m., and your skin is looking tired—it’s a great way to keep skin looking radiant and awake.”
She also recommends looking for mists based on your skin type. Think ingredients like rose water, aloe water and coconut water for moisturizing, and green tea, lavender and witch hazel for clarifying.

HOW TO USE THE BLUE FAIRY SPOT TREATMENT PROPERLY
By The Clear Skin Essentials

The spot treatment I’m using in the video demo is VERDURA naturalternatives – Blue Fairy Concentrate (Facial Oil for Acne + Oily Skin). I did a review of it a while ago (click here to check out the review). This is by far the best spot treatment I’ve found (and I’ve tried A LOT!). It’s actually a face oil, but I much prefer it as a spot treatment (it’s too strong to use all over your face). Not only is it great at getting rid of pimples, but it’s the only product I’ve used that really helps to decongest clogged pores. I get clogged pores and a few raised bumps around my nose and mouth area, and this is the only product that has made a significant difference. Just make sure to use it sparingly (and watch the video above for my application tips) because as I said, it can be strong!

NAMASTÉ BATH & BODY OIL REVIEW
By Cruelty Free With Me

I started using the Namasté Bath, and Body Oil, a couple months ago and it’s gotten to the point where my skin CRAVES it!

The scent is subtle yet invigorating!
My skin has never thanked me so much!

3 REASONS TO USE BODY OIL FEATURING VERDURA NAMASTE OIL
By Sunkissed Kate

Take this body oil, Namasté, by VERDURA naturalternatives. It contains oils like sage, lavender and grapefruit to achieve a calming, tranquil scent that is perfectly peaceful. I’ve been using the Namasté Body Oil for a few weeks and have been relishing in all of these amazing body oil benefits! It leaves my skin feeling so soft and hydrated and I never need to apply it more than once a day. Plus, in typical VERDURA fashion, it’s completely beautiful and sits proudly on my vanity. The Namasté Body Oil contains powerful oils like Jojoba and Tamanu to heal and quench the skin. It comes in a beautiful glass and chrome bottle with a quality pump in a very generous size that will last months. As if I even need to mention how pure and clean this oil is. You can plainly see that the ingredients are super clean and most are Organic as well!

VERDURA NATURALTERNATIVES' ACNE + OILY SKIN PRODUCTS

Everyone knows I’m a big proponent of using very simple, soothing, and minimal skincare to heal active breakouts and acne (using too many products when you have active pimples and breakouts on your skin will only make your skin worse, not better). Between using VERDURA naturalternative Bamboo Diva Facial Cleanser to wash your face and then using a few drops of Sprout Serum to moisturize – it’s all you need to balance out your skin and allow it to heal...

VERDURA NATURALTERNATIVES
By Bloom & Clementine

This was a package that I was eager to receive and opened quickly to have a look at the beautiful bottles inside. VERDURA naturalternatives is a Canadian based company, which is something that always steals a bit of my Canadian heart. They use some of the most beautiful ingredients to create their skin care line, including floral extracts that smell so lovely when you open the bottles. I always like to try a range of different products to see what a company is like and three of their products have stood out to me. I tried their Bamboo Diva face wash, their Lotus hydration mist and last but certainly not least the Illuminati Face mask (which gets its gorgeous colour from the turmeric used). To give you a better idea of the experience you will receive with Verdura’s line, here are my opinions on each of these products...
