Ensuring we make time for ourselves every day to relax and give ourselves TLC is key, but with Olixa you’ll never forget.
As life slowly returns to normality, it couldn’t be more important to take what we’ve learned this Stress Awareness Month on board. Olixa is the beauty brand powered by plants and lead by a passion to provide simple active products that multi-task for you while you wind down.
Beauty at The Fragrance Shop has raved about the famous Rose Quartz Gua Sha Facial Massage Tool since we first tried it last year, though that isn’t the only product you’ll want to add to your self-care rituals. Here are our Olixa must-haves…
If you aren’t familiar, the Olixa Gua Sha Facial Massage Tool is one of the most relaxing beauty products we’ve come across to date. Modelled on an ancient beauty tool designed to relieve tension in the muscles of the face, the marble-like tool de-puffs your skin, smooths out wrinkles, and calms your skin. Its multi-purpose nature improves the elasticity of your skin by increasing blood circulation when used daily.
So, not only does it feel incredible when cooling your skin (pro tip: keep it in the fridge for maximum impact) but it’s working overtime to improve your skin in many different ways without you even noticing. For only £20 from Beauty at The Fragrance Shop, it’s a truly heavenly treat suitable for any budget!
Moving on to the range of oils, cleansers and masks, every product is vegan and made with 100% natural origin ingredients, which are all sustainably sourced. Founder Alexandra Jansons has ensured Olixa targets varying skin needs with naturally potent products that work on different skin types, so the range stays simple and effective.
The bestselling Gummy Facial Cleanser features Australian wild-harvested Kakadu Plum, which is the world’s richest natural source of Vitamin C (fun fact!). Kakadu Plum also contains natural AHAs and phenolic acid, which work to give skin a brighter appearance and smoother overall texture.
Formulated with Eucalyptus Oil (an anti-bacterial agent), the blend of natural ingredients works on most skin types as it’s gentle enough to fight occasional breakouts but won’t strip the skin of moisture. The Olixa Gummy Facial Cleanser is so in-demand that it’s now available in the normal 75ml bottle (24.00) and a supersized 150ml bottle (£30.00) for those who just cannot get enough.
Another Olixa must-have is our favourite Centella Asiatica Facial Mask. Made specifically to treat stressed out and sensitive skin, the mask features sustainably sourced Centella Asiatica from Madagascar, which is rich in Triterpenes and Polyphenols to soothe the skin.
It can be often be difficult to find a face mask that works for your individual skin type, however the Centella Asiatica is blended with chia seed, hemp seed, strawberry seed and camellia seed oils, making it a soft buttery formula that repairs and protects the skin. The azealaic acid used is only mind, present to gently even out the skin tone and refine the skin’s surface. The natural acid actually helps to reduce skin sensitivity, making this calming treatment safe enough to leave on overnight as a sleeping mask for extra nourishment. Stressed out skin? It won’t be by the morning.
The Olixa Centella Asiatica Facial Mask is now only £24.00 for the 75ml bottle from Beauty at The Fragrance Shop. What makes Olixa even better is the fact the brand is so committed to recycling. Almost all of the current packaging can be recycled and there is even a dedicated blog to help you recycle the products correctly. We couldn’t love them more!
As we look beyond Stress Awareness Month, invest in yourself and continue embracing the fact skincare can be genuine self-care. Purposeful brands like Olixa, Skin & Tonic and Balance Me all prove skincare can be crafted with your own wellbeing in mind (and the planet’s!), while only using ingredients that need to be there.
