The Green Beauty Blogger in me loves to talk about organic makeup, modern natural solutions for skin and hair hare and other eco-friendly beauty related bits and bobs. The Minimalist and Simple Living addict in me tends to downsize the amount of products I use on a daily basis to an essential minimum though. It’s not a simple task by any means. Sometimes you can look at all your skincare / makeup storage and think you need ALL of it! Let’s face it – you don’t. Not every day. Not right now.
I spend most of my days in my home studio (where all the magic happens, from styling displays to finalizing the articles). I’ve already passed the stage when I needed to convince myself to switch from a pj into normal clothes before, now I am taking it one step further and focusing on how my skin looks from the moment I wake up till the moment I am ready to go outside. There’re days when it doesn’t happen but still you won’t see my face dull, sleepy or “not so fresh”. And it only takes me a 2 minutes additional time after I complete my morning skin care ritual. I admit, I own my naturally glowing, always ready-to-go face to Gressa Skin!
Gressa Skin is a US based company who deeply understands the need of current beauty industry – pure and simple ingredients list, knowledge of science together with traditional natural apothecary secrets, passion and dedication that as a result offer a women not only a product, but a blissful beauty experience that can change the way of consuming skin care and makeup items. Gressa Skin has a wide selection of products, from botanical extracts and essential oils based skin products to natural lip colors collection, but today I want to focus on 3 products that create an essential makeup kit for a Minimalist. Three of these make my mornings way more simple and the result in a mirror much more lovable – Correcting Serum Foundation, Illuminating Serum and Contouring Serum Bronzer. So here I am, sharing the secrets of Gressa Skin minimalist makeup with you today!
Gressa Corrective Serum Foundation makes my days prettier : it’s both serum, foundation and an extra vitamin boost for your face! If you’re still using a BB / CC / DD cream for a non-green beauty brand, consider a switch to this one right now! It’s carefully selected natural ingredients list is purely beneficial for your skin and provides it with everything your skin wishes for her “breakfast of champions”. I love how gently this serum foundation melts on my skin and evens out the tone without leaving any sort of heavy feeling. From 8 available shades it will be easier to choose the one that fits your skin tone the most (here’s the shades guide), I went for 02 and it was a win win. It makes me feel bare faced, and it’s only me who knows the secret! Well, now you do too, but I love to share with you, ladies!:) In my humble opinion, it’s a natural makeup must have!
A tip: shake the bottle really well before applying those magical 2-4 drops! I do that with my fingers, but you can also use a brush if you prefer so. If you have a thirsty, dry skin it would be the best for you to use this serum foundation a few minutes after you’ve applied your daily moisturizer to avoid any dry patches.
Among ingredients: Broccoli seed oil, Gressa Healing Complex™, Vitamin C, Lemon Balm Extract, Sea Buckthorn extract, Bitter Melon extract, Licorice Root extract, Elder flower extract, mica etc.
Illuminating Serum gives a bit of feminine glow : natural-looking pearly highlighter for a luminous skin finish. One of my personal reasons to love this products, besides it’s obvious bonus to make your cheeks, brow bones and other desired parts of your face shimmering with a sheer touch of beautiful radiance, you can’t actually over-do it! It’s so light and so easily adjusts to the skin, you would only need to 1-2 drops to make all the trick. Now I don’t need a going out occasion to use a highlighter on my cheeks, as this one from Gressa Skin completely understands my love to literally “no make up” daily look. With just a tiniest bit of secret;)
Contouring Serum Bronzer for a sun-kissed skin look : probably, the most sheer looking bronzing serum I’ve ever met. It’s ability to give a blissful radiance, sunny glow and warm any skin tone without adding too much facial luggage is worth to be considered as another must have in your minimalist daily makeup routine. It lays so perfectly on the skin, you barely would worry about blending the borders, although using a brush would obviously make the ritual super comfortable. Works pretty well even on my pale skin, can’t wait to get some tan and use it on a daily basis during the summer! Naturally looking sun kissed glow guaranteed, along with hundreds of complements.
