Minimalist Beauty

2018 is all about minimalism and decluttering our spaces as well as our lives! Why not declutter your skincare routine too? I've recently started to take a more minimalist approach to life and material goods. This approach includes my skincare too, below are a few of my favourite minimalist skincare brands. 

These vegan, non-toxic, and sustainable brands are not only simplistic but effective. Using only organic and high performing plant-based ingredients, these skincare brands will make you glow from the inside out. There's beauty in simplicity baby.  

Our Two Favourite Minimalist Vegan Skincare Brands:

Agasaya

Agasaya believes that "there's beauty in simplicity" and in honouring organic ingredients in their raw state - Camelia Founder of Agasaya. 

The Canadian beauty brand consists of five high-performing products which contain no more than five ingredients allowing each ingredient to shine. Each ingredient comes directly from the source in its most raw form to highlight the true performance of nature. Agasaya's products are effective and multi-purpose so you don't need to worry about filling your bathrooms with countless products. Use the Moroccan Olive Soup as a facial cleanser and light scrub, a body gel and as a shaving cream. Use Agasaya's rose water as a makeup remover, a makeup setter, a facial toner, and a hair refresher. Meanwhile, Organic Barbary Fig Seed oil can be used as an under-eye treatment for wrinkles, puffiness and dark circles as well as a nourishing anti-ageing and balancing moisturizer. 

Every product is packaged in violet glass to preserve every ingredient and to protect each product from sunlight which can limit the product's effectiveness. The bottles are 100 % recyclable and you can re-use them at home for plants, storage, brush + pen holders or travel.

Agasaya donates 10 % of its profits to charities that advocate for women's rights, gender equality and equal access to education.

Try out Agasaya's Barbary Fig Seed Oil or their Raw Rhassoul Clay Mask to have a luxury minimalist experience. I love using her rose toner whenever I travel!
