One way to make your skincare routine more fun is to use products you really love. One of my favourite brands that I’ve been using religiously for nearly a year is Puretopia.
Puretopia is an Australian natural skincare brand. All their products are free from parabens and sulfates, use only ethically sourced ingredients and no animal testing whatsoever.
There’s a lot to love in the range but these are my top picks that I can’t live without and would confidently recommend these to my family and friends.
|Puretopia Glowingly Smooth Body Polish|
Glowingly Smooth Body Polish:
I’ve raved about this a few times already. This is the best body scrub I’ve ever used. It’s has Amazonian Acai berry and Guarana to stimulate and detoxify your skin and smells amazing, like lime cola. It’s packed with walnut shell which is an amazing gentle but effective exfoliant so you can actually feel it scrubbing all the dead skin cells off. My skin feels ridiculously smooth and soft after using this, hands down my favourite from the range.
Sensitive Care Shampoo & Conditioner:
Puretopia also does haircare! It’s a little embarrassing to admit but I have a chronically dry and flaky scalp. I’ve established it’s not dandruff, my scalp it just sensitive to harsh products and gets flaky. I’ve used Head & Shoulders, Selsun Blue, Clear and a couple of other dry scalp targeted products but the only thing that has worked is this. These are sulphate free so they don’t foam up like regular shampoo. They also don’t leave build up in your hair so at first, your hair might feel a bit dry but overtime, it becomes stronger, healther and scalp is more balanced. I’ve been doing a 3 month trial of another shampoo range at the moment so my scalp isn’t in the best condition. I’ll be switching back to this right after.
|Puretopia Hydrating & Rejuvenating Hair Mask|
Pure Treatment Hair Mask:
This has argan, macadamia and almond oils in it to condition your hair. Once a week after shampooing, I’ll slather this onto the mid-lengths of my hair, clip it up and leave in for 10 minutes while I go about the rest of my routine. It rinses out pretty easily but my hair feels smoother and softer after. It’s silicone free with sunflower oil to protect your hair against heat styling.
|Puretopia Whisk Away Creamy Cleanser and Purify & Revive Clay Mask|
Whisk Away Creamy Cleanser:
I always start my mornings with this smooth creamy cleanser that gently whisks away the excess oil and grime without stripping it raw and dry. It’s loaded with skin loving ingredients such as Shea Butter, Olives and Rosehip to nourish your skin. It won’t remove heavy duty waterproof makeup though so best use a good makeup remover first.
Purify & Revive Clay Mask:
Once a week I like to do a deeper cleanse with the Purify & Revive Clay Mask. It’s thinner and runnier than most clay masks so when you apply it, you apply the thinnest layer possible. As it sets and hardens, it draws all the impurities from your pores out to the surface and when you wash it away, you skin feels so soft and clean. Definitely follow it up with the Sleep & Renew moisturiser.
|Puretopia Daily Face and Sleep & Renew Moisturisers|
Daily Face SPF 15 Moisturiser:
Puretopia moisturisers have a thicker texture but they feel insanely nourishing. I love this most for my makeup free days because it keeps my skin feeling plump and hydrated for longer and thus looks healthier than using a moisturiser that’s so light it disappears after a minute.
Sleep & Renew Night Face Moisturiser:
My favourite moisturiser of the 3 Puretopia has to offer. It will feed your skin with rosehip, primrose and avocado oils. It also has bioactive peptides and Vitamins for anti ageing. It feels so potent and the next morning, my face feels firmer and smoother. A must have night cream!
There you have it, my top picks from this natural face, hair and body care line. Puretopia is available in Priceline and pharmacies across Australia. The hair and body range is harder to track down but most pharmacies that carry the brand are willing to order in for you if you ask nicely :)
