Verdura Naturalternatives is one of those brands that is everything. They are conscious, ethical, chic and their products are extremely well made and effective. If all brands were like this, we would be living in a very different world.
Finding brands like Verdura Naturalternatives is what gets me excited about green beauty and the possibilities of natural skincare.
Verdura Naturalternatives was gracious enough to send me a few of their top products to try and share with you. Of course this doesn’t change the fact that I will be giving a 100% honest review of the products and the brand.
So, why should you be interested in this brand? Well, I feel like there are a lot of reasons, but allow me to get straight to the point.
A Conscious Brand
Verdura is very conscious about what they put in their products. They don’t use petrochemicals, synthetic ingredients, parabens, artificial fragrance or fillers. They use organic botanicals that are naturally beneficial for your skin and nothing else.
Fun fact: Verdura means vegetable in Italian (my Italian lessons are paying off!)
An Ethical Brand
All Verdura products are Vegan, Gluten Free and never tested on animals. They also avoid the use of Palm Oil due to the destruction that happens to the rainforests and species within during production. They respect the planet and everything on it.
A Chic Brand
I shouldn’t even have to point this out, I mean just look at their products. They’re gorgeous! They’ll add class to any skincare collection.
An Effective Brand
The co-founder of Verdura Naturalternatives, Brigitte Urbani is well trained in the beauty industry with over 25 years’ experience, and a skin cancer survivor. There’s really no question of passion here.
Brigitte and her husband Claudio know what your skin needs to thrive, and use only that to create beautiful skincare products that are effective and nourishing to the skin.
I’m so excited to be sharing such an amazing company with you!
Lotus Hydrating Mist
The Lotus Hydrating Mist is one of the products that Brigitte sent to me, and I am so obsessed!
This mist has hydrating, antiseptic and anti-aging properties. It’s pretty much the whole package all wrapped up in this beautiful glass bottle.
It can help shrink your pores, keep your skin clear, refresh your skin and keep it hydrated throughout the day, and works on keeping your skin looking youthful. What else could you possibly ask for?!
If you’re wondering when to use this mist, here’s when I’ve used it:
– First thing in the morning, before I apply anything to my skin
– To set my makeup
– Throughout the morning and afternoon to feel refreshed
– If I’m going out and want to freshen up my face
– The last thing I put on my face before bed
– And sometimes just to smell it again, if I’m being honest
So basically, the best time to use it is whenever you want to. And once you use it, you’ll be using all the time because it’s just so refreshing and it smells soo good!
Another thing you’ll love is that the mister is a really good quality mister. It sprays such a fine mist that you don’t have to worry about it leaving big wet drops on your face and messing up your makeup. Everything about this bottle just feels so luxury.
I also love that it’s anti-aging. I’ve hit my mid-twenties and suddenly anti-aging is super important to me. Never too early to start preventing wrinkles, right?
Berry Facial Serum
Like I said, I’m right into the anti-aging, so serums are right up my alley. And this serum takes the cake.
First of all, I just have to point out how beautiful this serum is. I mean, the serum is red. How cool is that.
The Berry Facial Serum is all about anti-aging. It contains oils with the highest antioxidants to promote cell regeneration, keeping your skin looking youthful.
It specifically targets the appearance of wrinkles, age spots and skin damage. The berry serum boosts collagen production (which is key to firm, supple skin) and is a natural source of retinol (which encourages skin cell turnover).
All of this equals firmer, more radiant skin.
After using it for a few days, I also noticed a huge change in the texture of my skin. I apply the serum at night and wake up to super soft skin that lasts all day.
Two things I really like about this serum are: I only have to use such a small amount to cover my face so it’s going to last. And it doesn’t have a bad smell.
I’ve used some serums that smell too “earthy”, and although this serum couldn’t be more natural, it doesn’t have a bad earthy smell to it. This is a huge plus for me.
This serum has no fillers and is super pure, and the price reflects that. It may seem expensive but if you compare it to other serums and take into consideration how long it will last you, it’s worth every penny.
And if anti-aging is really important to you, these two products make up half of Verdura’s Anti-Aging Regimen Kit (buying them in a kit will save you money!).
Overall I am extremely impressed with these Verdura products. I really don’t have anything negative to say about them, and I think Verdura Naturalternatives has a really good thing going on.
I would recommend them to my closest friends and family, so go check them out.
