Wabi-Sabi Botanicals Indie Beauty Spotlight Discovery

december 02, 2018

You may have already seen on my Instagram (see here) that Beauty Heroes recently came up with new Limited Edition Indie Beauty Spotlight Discoveries, and they are all about three indie beauty brands. Beauty Heroes is really stepping up their game and this year has truly been amazing for all of their discoveries, but especially their limited edition discoveries. Their newest LE discovery isn't actually the one I'm going to be talking about today but I'm still waiting for that one to arrive to me. Since it's selling out fast I still want to mention it quickly - Beauty Heroes launched Lifestyle Discovery featuring DINO Apparel (you can check it out here). I went with the Everywhere Pullover in Red Velvet and I'm so excited to receive it. Reviews thus far have been very positive, everyone is saying how very soft and comfortable these clothes are and I'm really looking forward to wear my pullover. Will definitely let you see how it looks on me when it comes, hopefully soon. For now that is all about the DINO Apparel Discovery so let's get back to the Wabi-Sabi Botanicals Indie Beauty Spotlight Discovery.

There are three Indie Beauty Spotlight Discoveries but today I'm going to talk only about one, the Wabi-Sabi Botanicals Discovery*. In the box, which btw would be an amazing gift, are three products: The Offering Ageless Ritual Facial Mist, Light Reveal Targeted Treatment Serum and Valley of Light Illuminative Mask. You can check out this discovery here (and you can also check out the Ranavat Botanics and Beneath Your Mask discoveries).

Oh Wabi-Sabi Botanicals, I love thee. I mean what is not to love about this brand?? While reading their website and the philosophy of the brand I'm like yes, yes, YES! Wabi-Sabi Botanicals was founded by Elysse Crabtree, and she is just so adorable, sweet and friendly. And also knowledgeable.  Understanding what it’s like to have sensitive, acne-prone skin, Elysse has created a skincare line that is targeted, concentrated and effective. Their ingredients are purveyed from small-scale artisan producers, family-owned farms, and women-centered co-operatives around the world. In alignment with their mission, they place a special emphasis on co-operatives organized for empowering women by paying them fair, living wages for their work. They use carefully selected ingredients that meet their high standards: they use Organic or Organically Grown Wild-Harvested plants, they support Fair Trade practices by sourcing ingredients that are sustainable for producers, their communities, and the environments they live in. For this reason, their products are 100% Palm oil and Palm oil derivative-free. Yaas! Wabi-Sabi Botanicals products are also vegan and they also don't use a lot of essential oils, if any. The three products I'm going to mention today are free from essential oils. Find more information on the ingredients they use here.

The Offering Ageless Ritual Face Mist. I'm not quite sure when it happened, but Wabi-Sabi Botanicals recently went through a rebranding and they launched some gorgeous new products, this mist including. First of all I want to talk about the absolutely stunning packaging of Wabi-Sabi Botanicals products, especially this mist. The picture of hand, fruits and flowers is just so beyond stunning and I really adore it! The whole gold on white theme of the other two products is something that isn't widely used in skincare products and I love the uniqueness of them. I didn't take any photos but all these products came in black boxes with gold writings and they're equally beautiful. I established my love for the packaging, I think, now what about the products themselves? The Offering face mist was carefully crafted with a blend of black Omani and white Carterii Frankincense to make skin feel toned and tightened. Earthy aroma of Frankincense is mixed with floral notes of Lebanese Orange Blossom and Blood Orange. It's a lovely, grounding scent and I've been really enjoying using it. You know I prefer to use aloe vera based facial mists because I find them more hydrating than just pure hydrosols, but there's just something about this one that I really love. It's probably the fact that I find it so beautiful and the scent is just so nice and different to what I have. I'm really intrigued by other Wabi-Sabi Botanicals facials mists, they all just look and sound gorgeous. Besides The Offering, they also have Heart Rising, with White Rose, Jasmine, Sandalwood and Agarwood (check it out here) and Still Waters with Lavender, Tulsi and Lemongrass (see here). Give them a try, I think they're worth it. You can get The Offering Ageless Ritual Face Mist here.
Wabi-Sabi Botanicals Indie Beauty Spotlight Discovery Limited Edition Beauty Heroes Light Reveal Targeted Treatment Serum
Light Reveal Targeted Treatment Serum is the second serum I've tried from them. The first one I just recently finished and that was the Age Gracefully from the Art of Organics Clean Beauty Box (see my review here). I loved that little serum so much and so when Jeannie (the founder of Beauty Heroes) said they will be featuring one of Wabi-Sabi Botanicals serums I was like yes please, I cannot wait to try more! Light Reveal is the answer to a rejuvenated, glowing appearance. This skin moisturizing serum is designed to restore a look of luster and health to tired, sallow skin. It contains only a number of ingredients: Andiroba & Buriti Oils visibly diminish the appearance of inflammation and redness, bringing out an even toned appearance, Guarana promotes a look of radiance, while Pequi is used to lend a nourishing feel to dry skin. Sea Buckthorn offers skin conditioning effects that promote a look of clarity, reduce the appearance of sun damage, and lend a restorative look to the complexion. This targeted treatment serum promises brighter, lighter, more brilliant looking skin. It has an amazing, vibrant orange colour which I love terribly and a stunning sweet and fruity scent of Pequi Fruit Oil, which is blowing my mind. There are no essential oils and I actually had to check the description to figure out what I was smelling. Mmm its fruity sweetness is making me happy. This serum has quite a thick consistency, meaning it's not as liquid as we're used to when it comes to facial oils. It's actually quite strange - the texture is almost balm-like but the oil is drier and not heavy at all. Of course the consistency slightly varies on the temperature. I was surprised to learn it's super lightweight and is instantly absorbed into the skin. Wabi-Sabi Botanicals Targeted Treatment Serums come in 10 ml bottles and they are designed to be used, as the name suggests, as targeted serums, as treatments. Of course they can be used on their own but what I like to do is combine them with other products, especially oils. In the mornings I have been loving it mixed with Maya Chia Supercritical Pure Chia Face Oil* (from Level Up Discovery with Sarah, which is still available and would also be a wonderful gift) and in the evening I either apply one drop on its own and use it where I have the most problems with redness and hyperpigmentation, or I mixed it with my beloved Fleurs d'Afrique Intensive Recovery Facial Oil* by African Botanics from a Boxwalla Beauty Box (review here). Light Reveal isn't an instant solution and doesn't lighten my skin with just one use (which you know is rare) but with consistent use I noticed a slight reduction in appearance of my hyperpigmentation spots aka this random redness on my skin. It's very lovely indeed. You can get Light Reveal Targeted Treatment Serum here.

Valley of Light Illuminative Mask is the third product of this limited edition beauty discovery. This is a powdered mask rich in antioxidants from pure Balinese Cacao and finely-ground Arabica Coffee that will leave your complexion looking soft and luminous. This botanical blend features Hibiscus, Red Ginger, Temulawak (Javanese Ginger) and Fermented Reishi Mushroom all working synergistically to create a radiant glow for every skin type. This mask promises a look of smooth, youthful skin, enhanced appearance of brightness and clarity and visible improvement in lines and discoloration. It's a beaut! It has a rich aroma of raw cacao with a hint of coffee. As this is a powder mask you can mix it with pretty much everything you like. I love mixing it with water and a little bit of honey, or you can mix it with The Offering and Light Reveal to give it that extra boost. What I highly recommend is mixing it with water and Maya Chia Supercritical Pure Chia Face Oil* which has a citrusy scent and I swear the mixture smells like chocolate and oranges, it's divine! I leave the mixture on my skin for about 20 minutes and I mist it with water so it doesn't dry up on my skin. I always do that with masks, I think they are more active and beneficial like this. After rinsing it off my skin is always left very soft and supple, really beautiful. Mask is also exfoliating and my skin also looks a bit brighter and more radiant after I use it. Some have called this product the Hero of this discovery and they may be right. I'm really impressed with it too. You can get the Valley of Light Illuminative Mask here.

I'm completely and utterly in love with this particular discovery and I highly recommend it. I love all three products and I find them suitable for most skin types. They don't contain any essential oils which is always a plus in my opinion, so even those with sensitive skin type can use them. I have to say that my first impression of this discovery was truly amazing. When I tried them all for the very first time (saved in my "beauty heroes" Highlights on Instagram) I thought to myself "OMG I love you already!". And I do.

I would like to end this post saying that Wabi-Sabi Botanicals is one of those brand that gives back to the community. Every month, they set aside 10% of proceeds to invest into Kiva micro-loans for women, and every purchase directly supports a woman’s dream of starting or growing her business, getting an education, or serving her community. Kiva is an international nonprofit, founded in 2005 and based in San Francisco, with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. Kiva celebrates and supports people looking to create a better future for themselves, their families and their communities. Over 2.6 million people in 86 countries have received loans through Kiva. Find more info on this here.

Giving back to a cause of their choosing is something that all three indie brands (Wabi-Sabi Botanicals, Ranavat Botanics and Beneath Your Mask) from this limited edition Indie Beauty Spotlight Discoveries are doing and I love that. Over and above what each brand contributes to their cause, Beauty Heroes is donating $2 per discovery to their charity. So amazing!

This limited edition Wabi-Sabi Botanicals Indie Beauty Spotlight Discovery is valued at $128 and you can get it for $69. You can get it here.

Don't forget to check out the other two, both woman-owned indie brands that give back - more info here.

Oh and I almost forgot to say happy December!! New month brought us the NEW monthly Beauty Discovery featuring the beautiful max and me. Check out the new discovery here.

I'm here for you if you have any question. Have a wonderful Sunday!

Lots of love,

Jana xx
