Beauty Innovations: 001 Classic Collection
Beauty is more than skin deep...
Every girl knows the importance of a good skin care regime for beautiful, youthful, healthy skin and finding the right products for your skin type is crucial. Luxury British brand 001, inspired by Asian philosophy, combines high-quality natural botanics and science to create formulas that protect skin against the constant attack of the elements and negative effects of daily life.
Created by Ada Ooi, a trained aromatherapist and beauty therapist, 001 uses the principles of traditional apothecary to help to restore skin to its natural, healthy state and prolong ageing, using innovative hybrid methods.
I was kindly given the opportunity to try out two of the products from the 001 Classic Collection, which is an ideal range for a highly-effective daily skin regime.
Active Marine Power Concentrate £49.00
My new best friend! This potent, omega-rich serum contains marine algae, Vitamin C, aloe vera, green tea and citrus oils, so is packed full of anti-oxidants that encourage cell regrowth, pore tightening and skin brightening. It smells amazing (a subtle, fresh citrus smell), leaves my skin feeling beautifully soft and literally works wonders! I can visibly see an improvement in my skin's hydration and elasticity, giving me a desirable radiant glow. It is very indulgent and you only need a small amount to reap all of the benefits! Winner!
How to Use: After cleansing and toning, apply evenly across face and eyes in a circular motion. Follow with moisturiser.
Pure Lavender Hydrolat Toner £25.00
I don't often use toner as I've never understood its importance (and I'm not keen on the smell of Lavender) but this product is doing wondrous things to my skin. With 99% pure hydrolat from distilled Lavender, it is perfect for balancing pH levels, refining pores, rehydrating skin and calming redness and blemishes. I am particularly prone to blemishes and in less than a week, it has helped reduced the redness of my problem areas by 70%. I use it daily, morning and night, and it easily fits into my beauty regime - hassle-free! And it is way more than just a toner! It can also be used as a cleanser, a refreshing spritz, face mask and a mist to set make up.
How to Use: Spray directly onto skin or onto a cotton pad, gently sweeping it across your face and neck. For a face mask, soak cotton pads and place on top of skin for 5 minutes.
