We know our honest, force of nature formulations really work but it always gives us an extra special glow to be endorsed by those in the know! That’s why we are thrilled our plumping Facial Essence and de-stressing Bath Essence have both just won Silver in the 24th Beauty Bible Awards.
The brainchild of Slow Coaches Jo Fairley and Sarah Stacey, the Beauty Bible was created to celebrate ‘real health and beauty for grown ups’. Every year more than 1,000 testers are recruited by the Beauty Bible team to put the best skin, body, sun, haircare and makeup products through their paces - sometimes over several months - to record the most accurate results. Tested by real women like you, in real life, to highlight the beauty world’s very best performing products, the 2020 Awards are a huge stamp of approval on the Slow Ageing formulations that we absolutely believe in - and think that you’ll adore too!
Twice as nice!
For the 2nd year running Essential Facial Essence has proved its must-have status on your bedside table by scooping Silver in the ‘Facial Oil’ category. The vital 2nd step in in our capsule ‘four to flawless’ routine, this regenerating, rebalancing and free radical blitzing blend of 100% pure essential oils, feels (and smells!) like heaven on every skin type. Gliding exquisitely over face, neck and décolleté as part of our energy-boosting ‘Skin’ergy self-massage’ application technique, it penetrates deep down, nurturing, nourishing and renewing skin cells at their source.
Laden with potently active antioxidants like lemon verbena, Roman chamomile and rosemary to counteract the damaging effects of stress, pollution and UV light on skin, Facial Essence noticeably improves tone, smoothness and your overall ‘glow factor’. Comforting and anti-inflammatory ylang ylang also restores harmony (without oiliness) while ultra hydrator and super elasticising EFA-rich hazelnut seed oil increases suppleness. Together, these hard working botanicals not only improve your skin’s resilience long term but also boost the absorption – and therefore the results - of products you apply afterwards such as Essential Skin Moisturiser. It really is a win-win. But don’t just take our word for it… here’s what some of the 2020 Beauty Bible testers said about our ‘desert-island’ hero:
“It was surprisingly quick to apply and skin in, even with massaging it as per the directions. It was ready straight away for moisturiser and makeup.”
“Inhaling the gorgeous aroma is a big part of the feel good factor for me. It sinks in quickly as you massage and skin is very soft and brighter. I do look healthier and fresher now.”
“Lovely rich oil, that’s easily absorbed and has a lovely fragrance. My mature dry skin looked plumper and smother within 24 hours.”
Bathed in Beauty
In the Award’s 24th year, over half the winners come from brands like Slow Ageing, which have a natural focus, making it even more exciting that Bath Essence not only won Silver for ‘Bath Treat’ but also scooped a coveted ‘Best Natural’ Beauty Award. So what is it about our multi-purpose bath and shower oil that makes it a double award winner?
First it’s the dreamy blend of aromatics that invade your senses from the moment you pour a capful into your bath or the palm of your hand. Transformative and mood shifting, they kick-start the relaxation process in the most blissful way – exactly what we all need in these unsettling times. Next, by allowing yourself to relax in the fragrant, soothing water, potent and pure essential oils including rose geranium, rosemary and cypress stimulate your circulation to ease aching muscles and reset an over-stressed mind. Detoxifying juniper helps in the elimination of toxins and water retention to help decongest and improve the tone of sluggish, cellulite prone skin. Deliciously soothing, comforting and healing too, these divine, sustainably sourced oils are expertly blended with vitamin E and phytosterol-rich botanical hazelnut seed oil to drench skin with nourishment, rebalancing hydration levels to improve elasticity and leave skin satin-like to touch. What’s not to love?! We think the testers’ comments really do say it all…
“It felt very soothing after a busy day of rushing around. My skin felt soft and nourished after using this product. Friends and family have commented on the lovely smell, which lingers afterwards.”
“I allowed my husband to use this and he fell asleep straight after coming out of the bath so it totally relaxed him. Would highly recommend especially to someone who suffers stress and needs some relaxation because it sure soothes those tired muscles.”
“… It definitely soothed aches and pains. My skin was tingling and felt lovely and soft. It promised a luxury bath, which it was.”
