Readers of my blog will know that I rarely feature organic skincare products. The only one I have featured so far is Pai, brought to my attention by bloggers and friends on Twitter. There are incredible brands out there but as a MUA, I tend to stick to brands I know work as I really do not want to fuss about with experimenting on a job. Anyway I tried Pai and it works and I love the range and yes it's organic and extremely gorgeous!
New to their arsenal of luscious products are the 'Living Water' BioAffinity Toners in 2 varieties. Rice & Rosemary for Combination/Sensitive Skin and Lotus & Orange Blossom for Dry/Sensitive Skin.
Both toners boast a potent cocktail of vitamins, amino acids and trace minerals extracted from earth and body of the plant and unlike common toners, contains no alcohol and is the exact PH of healthy skin, thus providing unparalleled affinity to the skin.
Rice Plant water purifies, cools and rebalances while Rosemary has anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory effects which purifies and de-congests skin.
Lotus root extract prevents the release of the molecule that makes skin flare up and Orange Blossom stimulates cell regeneration and illuminates the complexion. It also has powerful skin repairing properties.
Enough of the science but just in case science buffs are interested, you can read more about it and order HERE.
Does it work? I've been using the Rice & Rosemary Toner and I love how refreshed and calm my sensitive skin feels especially on muggy and hot days which we've been having. I have been using it on myself mid-day after giving my face a wipe with cleanser to refresh and then a quick thorough spritz afterwards. Upon inspection, my skin feels and looks calmer, less red and very very moist (I hate that word) and dewy! So I say it's worked. I will slot into my kit and use it on a model. I think this will be a great hit for location shoots for when a model's skin gets hot and irritated from the elements. I shall report on that asap but otherwise I say Pai has got another winner!
Pai 'Living Water' BioAffinity Toner retail at RRP£30 and you get 50ml of gorgeousness. Please do go and try it and let me know how you get on.
