The Age Defying Facial

I first came across Organic Apoteke a few months ago, whilst searching for a new organic skincare routine. The first products I received from them were the three magical pieces from their Age Defying Facial:

  • Buttermilk Cleanser
  • Rejuvenating Face Cream
  • Rejuvenating Face Mask

This three-step routine has been the ONLY skincare products that I have used in the past month! Nothing else.

I loved the idea of an organic skincare routine, which claimed to be able to do all the things that my usual skincare products could do, and more…in just three products!

The combination of the Buttermilk Cleanser, Rejuvenating Face Cream and Rejuvenating Face Mask results in smooth and toned, hydrated skin with a more plumped and radiant appearance.

Fluid State Skincare

Organic Apoteke products are emulsifier-free. They combine plant oils and waters, which means that their products are in a ‘Fluid State‘.

Fluid state products are more easily absorbable into the skin and they help the skin to retain moisture. The products flow more like water and are able to adapt to environmental changes.

The Organic Apoteke products have been described as “liquid gold”.

  • Suitable for: Dry skin, sensitive skin, skin with dark spots and redness, and skin showing signs of ageing and lacking radiance.
  • Free from: This product is vegetarian, cruelty-free and free from emulsifiers and palm oil.

The Perfect Bamboo Face Cloths

I am genuinely in love with the Biodegradable Bamboo Reusable Face Cloths from Organic Apoteke!

I have used many reusable bamboo face cloths and pads, but none even come close to how luxurious and effective these face cloths are.

They are extremely soft and gentle on the skin, and even when you think your face was clean before using the cleanser, you can physically see the proof of how effective the cleanser really is after wiping it off.

This is a sponsored post. All products were provided to me in return for my honest opinion. All thoughts and experiences are my own.

Buttermilk Cleanser

The first step of this luxury organic skincare routine is the Buttermilk Cleanser from Organic Apoteke, which also doubles up as an effective makeup remover.

It is suitable for dry and sensitive skin, and skin with dark spots.

This cleanser has many wonderful ingredients, which nourish and gently exfoliate the skin, leaving it soft and smooth.

Makeup is easily removed, including eye makeup and deeper impurities, and the Buttermilk Cleanser helps skin to retain moisture (unlike soap and some other cleansers).

Application

The Buttermilk Cleanser is clear in colour and the consistency is quite runny (in a good way). You only need to use a small amount of it to achieve overall facial coverage, and it smoothes over the face beautifully.

This cleanser smells very luxurious and a little sweet, which I love! 

Many brands claim that their cleansers can remove eye makeup, and unfortunately this is often not true. However, the Buttermilk Cleanser from Organic Apoteke really does work! 

I like to apply it all over my face and neck to give myself a full gentle cleanse and then work it a bit more into my “trouble” areas, such as my nose and eye areas.

Just a few circles around my eyes and my makeup – even heavy mascara, is easily removed!

How to use

Gently massage the cleanser onto dry skin in a circular motion, paying particular attention to those “trouble” areas I mentioned above.

To get the best results, wipe off the cleanser with a warm damp Biodegradable Bamboo Reusable Face Cloth from Organic Apoteke.

Follow this with the Rejuvenating Face Cream.

Rejuvenating Face Cream

The second step of this beautiful organic skincare routine is the Rejuvenating Face Cream. This face cream and moisturiser provides a serious multi-action result by smoothing, firming and toning, and nourishing the skin.

It is suitable for dry and sensitive skin, and skin with signs of ageing.

The antioxidant moisturiser is certified organic and is,

“clinically shown to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.”

Full of vitamins (A, C and E) and pentapeptides, skin is kept looking younger and rejuvenated. Not only can this moisturiser reduce signs of ageing, but it also helps to maintain healthy, younger looking skin.

Application

The first time I used the pump on the Rejuvenating Face Cream, I actually squirted it everywhere (it was my own fault!)

I didn’t realise how gentle I could be with the packaging.

Just a few small (and gentle) pumps on the bottle will give you more than enough for full coverage. I like to add another few pumps to cover my neck and dรฉcolletage, just because it feels so nice to have a little more.

As the Organic Apoteke products are in a fluid state, the consistency is more runny (almost like a thick water) and there is a yellow-ish tint to the cream, which makes it feel even more silky.

As with the Buttermilk Cleanser, it feels extremely lightweight and smooth when applied.

I love the smell of these products! They all have the same kind of smell, but each product is slightly different, so it is quite difficult to explain. 

I must say though (if I haven’t already), I actually love the smell. It always reminds me of a spa.

How to use

Massage the face cream onto your face, neck and dรฉcolletage after cleansing with the Buttermilk Cleanser.

The lovely people at Organic Apoteke suggest that you use this face cream “in combination with the Rasayana Rejuvenating Serum for added anti-ageing benefits.”

Rejuvenating Face Mask

The Rejuvenating Face Mask is the last step in this luxurious three-step organic skincare routine.

It is suitable for dry and sensitive skin, and skin with dark spots and redness. Also suitable for skin showing signs of ageing and lacking radiance.

The super ingredients and amino acids in this mask nourish the skin and help to stimulate and rejuvenate tired and pale-looking skin by enhancing microcirculation.

Collagen and elastin are boosted, skin is toned and firmed and cells are more easily regenerated, resulting in a more youthful, clearer and glowing appearance.

The moisture-retaining ingredients also mean that you can leave this mask on for longer than many other masks, giving your skin a more intense, yet gentle exfoliation.

Application

The Rejuvenating Face Mask is different from any other face mask I have ever used (again, in a good way).

You can literally feel it working straight away. Your skin feels instantly tighter and within a few minutes, you can feel how smooth your skin feels to the touch!

I was initially a little concerned about using this face mask, as I suffer from Rosacea and can sometimes react badly to certain products – including those with organic ingredients.

However, it was very nice to see after washing off the mask that my skin was not red, but actually visibly brighter, glowing and definitely smoother!

As with the Buttermilk Cleanser, the consistency of this face mask is quite runny, but gives a lot of coverage with only a very small amount.

I use around 4-5 pumps for a nice layer of coverage.

How to use

After cleansing with the Buttermilk Cleanser, apply a few pumps of the Rejuvenating Face Mask onto your face and neck.

Leave the mask on for 15-20 minutes and rinse off with warm water. I also use the Organic Apoteke Bamboo Face Cloths to do this, as I love them so much!

Follow this with the Rejuvenating Face Cream.

Key Ingredients

๐Ÿ’ž Buttermilk Powder: Buttermilk powder is just dehydrated buttermilk. It has amazing natural benefits, which are not very well known by most people. Buttermilk powder is a very effective anti-ageing cleanser, which brightens skin and reduces redness. It also soothes problem skin and moisturises whilst gently exfoliating. (Buttermilk Cleanser)

๐Ÿ’ž Damask Rose Oil: Apart from being very beneficial for a variety of health concerns, Damask Rose oil nourishes dry skin – contributing to the moisturising action of the Buttermilk Powder. It also smoothes wrinkles and improves circulation. (Buttermilk Cleanser and Rejuvenating Face Cream)

๐Ÿ’ž Soy Oil: Being rich in essential fatty acids and Vitamin E, Soy Oil helps skin to retain moisture and serves as an anti-inflammatory. (Buttermilk Cleanser and Rejuvenating Face Cream)

๐Ÿ’ž Pentapeptides: Pentapeptides are used in place of Retinol for a less irritating anti-ageing agent. It soothes skin and provides the building blocks of collagen and elastin – supporting skin structure and keeping skin looking and feeling healthier and more youthful. (Rejuvenating Face Cream)

๐Ÿ’ž Shea Nut Butter: Full of antioxidants and high in essential fatty acids, Shea Nut Butter helps to protect skin against dehydration by retaining and boosting moisture. This, in turn helps to even skin tone and reduce signs of ageing. (Rejuvenating Face Mask)

๐Ÿ’ž Honey: Known to also protect against dehydration, honey is a healing and soothing antibacterial ingredient. This is why many people suggest using honey in tea when you are ill or have a sore throat etc. (Rejuvenating Face Mask)

Antioxidant Afternoon Tea Organic Apoteke

Antioxidant Afternoon Tea

This delicious antioxidant tea is the perfect accompaniment to the organic skincare routine that you are now familiar with as the: Age Defying Facial.

The Antioxidant Afternoon Tea from Organic Apoteke is a potent herbal blend of super-healthy botanical herbs.

I like to infuse mine in my glass teapot because it is such a beautifully bold red in colour…and it generally just feels nicer to prepare in a glass teacup.

The perfect combination of ingredients encourages cellular healing, helps skin to glow and gives a great afternoon energy boost!

As a single mum with a variety of chronic illnesses, including fatigue and fibromyalgia, it is in the afternoon when I begin to start (unintentionally) slowing down.

Being able to get this much-needed boost in a healthy way is fabulous!

Key Ingredients

๐Ÿ’ž Organic Hibiscus Flower: Packed with antioxidants and polyphenols, the Hibiscus flower helps cells to regenerate and renew and enables the body to be able to fight infections more easily.

๐Ÿ’ž Organic Rosehips: Rosehips help to reduce pain and inflammation and strengthen the immune system, thanks to the powerful antioxidants. Also beneficial for skin showing signs of ageing.

๐Ÿ’ž Organic Tea Rose Damascena: Another ingredient packing a ton of healthy antioxidants and rich in Vitamins C and E, Tea Rose Damascena helps to balance mood and hormones and helps to hydrate skin.
