today I want to talk about Natural Skincare Splurge. For some it would raise ideas of high-end, luxury beauty shopping spree. But if you know me well and have been following my simple living blog for a while, you know that I actually tend to find the most effective, natural, eco- and sometimes even budget-friendly beauty alternatives to splurge on! So today I’d love to introduce you to SPLURGE skincare, that for me personally is an ideal match between very simple and completely transparent ingredients list (good stuff only!), minimalistic packaging, high product performance and the price! Because we all deserve those moments to get naturally spoiled, aren’t we?! Without digging a painful hole in the bank account.
Splurge skincare brand has grown from pure passion to natural elements and desire to create body treatments that actually work. Splurge skincare line consists of 4 products, with a few different scent variations. Ingredients lists are easy to read and understand what component is involved and what is it’s purpose (max 8 ingredients per product, I’ve counted). Why so simple? Because it doesn’t have to be complicated when it comes to beauty products. What matters is safety, ethics (Splurge products are not tested on animals), efficiency and delightful experience.
The story of Splurge skincare has started with creating The Rub – natural sugar based body scrub. It made it’s way to many happy showers, and now to mine as well!:) The Rub is a highly addictive product : it’s tiny granules easily spread all over the body, it polishes very gently without scratching the skin, leaves delicate aroma and super nourished skin after the rinse. I don’t apply any body serum after the rub session, as it’s natural oils blend does the moisturizing trick just fine! Comes in 4 different scented options (essential oils mixes) – Almond, Lemond, Peppermint and Winter. I got lucky to test out Peppermint (if you ask me, the more mint in this world – the better!) and Winter (soft floral with a pinch of vanilla spice scent).
Make sure you get your happy shower time NOW as Splurge are having special sale price on The Rub scrubs (8 oz, old packaging) for $13 instead of $26 regular price! This sale is being a hit (and I am so not surprised!), so it probably won’t last longer than a week more! Grab yours here. On the photos you see new packaging of The Rub body scrub that comes in 12 oz weight.
Among ingredients: Sugar, organic Safflower oil, Meadowfoam oil, Glycerin, Cocoa butter, Shea butter, Aloe Vera leaf juice, Vitamin E, essential oil blend.
Melted Buttah repair balm in this little glass jar is another wonderful creation of Splurge Skincare that targets any zone that needs extra care, ultra moisturizing and some healing action. Starting from lips to cuticle, elbows, dry or irritated spots, minor cuts etc. It’s signature blend contains of Babassu oil (similar to coconut oil in it’s benefits, this ingredient has a very high moisturizing value), Calendula Flower extract (anti-inflammatory, soothing and healing properties) and Red Raspberry seed (high vitamin value that helps to condition and repair the skin). This balm has very light scent that you would barely feel and totally non-greasy texture that makes it simple to use anywhere you’re. I am just loving to use it on my cuticles! Definitely makes my life much easier being placed right next to my laptop as a constant reminder to take a proper care of myself. Devoted multi-tasker for $10 only.
Among ingredients: organic Castor oil, Red Raspberry seed, Beeswax, Babassu oil, organic Jojoba oil, Calendula flower extract infused in olive fruit oil, essential oils blend.
Oh, these two! Spurge also have two different lip balms in their skincare collection. One is Lip Buttah – dreamy creamy lip moisturizer that lasts really long on the lips. I mean, if you don’t eat it right away because those scented options sound so delicious – Lemon, Almond, Orange Chocolate and Peppermint. I’ve tried Lemon and it definitely has some green, refreshing effect on me along with excellent lip care!
Among ingredients: Babassu oil, organ Cocoa butter, Beeswax, Sweet Almond oil, organic Castor oil, Litsea Cubeba essential oil, Bitter Almond essential oil, Vitamin E.
Another little lips helper is Tinted Buttah and it offers the same moisturizing action as Lip Buttah with a tiny bit of color – “In Love” (on the picture), “Fling” (berry color) and “Going Steady” (more of brownish shade). The color is very sheer, but adds some nice glow for sure. “In Love” looks almost transparent on my lips, but I guess “Fling” would give a bit more color as it looks darker. Slightly scented with Peppermint essential oil – love the cooling effect that it does, such a relief for dry lips!
Among ingredients: Babassu oil, organic Cocoa Butter, Beeswax, Sweet Almond oil, organic Castor oil, Peppermint essential oil, Alkanet root powder, Vitamin E.
