Whether we’re talking about skincare or makeup I always gravitate towards products that are natural. Whether this is that they are made with lots of really great natural ingredients or that they leave my face looking like I’m just having a really great skin day and not caked in makeup, I’m into it. The only thing better than these two things is when you get them both. A natural look, and naturally made.
Today I wanted to talk about a cruelty-free brand I recently discovered called Pure Anada. Their goal is to use ingredients that are derived from nature, they avoid and they are committed to choosing ingredients that are least likely to cause skin irritations and allergic reactions.
‘Since the ingredients used in our products are sourced from around the world, we do our best to research the supply chain to ensure the ingredients we purchase are fairly traded. Our shea butter comes from a women’s co-op in West Africa. Our Mica supplier ensures that their product is mined ethically in India without the use of child labour. They own their own mines, fund schools and daycare centres so that the quality of life for their employees is fair.’
Anyway enough raving about their ethics and into the products themselves.
The skincare trio I have been using from them is their cleanser, toner and serum. All three are lightweight and manage to make your face feel clean and hydrated without adding layers of balms and oils to your face. All the skincare I’ve tried from them has a very light but fresh scent which I love as I hate really overpowering smells from skincare products that then all layer on top of each other and become too overwhelming. I think their range would be great if you had sensitive skin as everything feels super gentle and soothing. I’ve just finished my current moisturiser of choice so I’m now going to give their Green Tea and Grapeseed Daily Moisturiser a whirl.
I think the brands make up range is what stole my heart. I’ve been using their Sheer Radiant Tinted Moisturiser in the shade very light almost every day now. It’s the perfect lightweight base that smooths over any imperfections without looking like you’re wearing anything at all. Combined with their Liquid Concealer they give just enough coverage to give you a little extra confidence but are a great low maintenance way of looking great. I’m also a massive fan of their Pressed Cheek Colour. At first, I thought it was a blusher as it looks slightly pink toned but actually, it doubles up perfectly as both a bronzer to add warmth to your complexion and also a blusher as it adds a pinch of colour and shine to your cheeks. It’s been promoted above all my other cheek products and is the one I now reach for every day. The last thing I have been loving in terms of makeup is their Black Mascara. It’s an extremely natural looking mascara, it makes your eyelashes look longer and darker but seems to manage to do so without looking like you’re wearing anything. I normally do prefer a higher duty mascara but for days just running errands, it’s been the perfect product to just give both me and my lashes a nice lift.
