When it’s reported that Duchess Kate uses a particular beauty brand, people take note. Amongst her rumoured beauty repertoire are rosehip oil, Keratase Nutritive Bain Oleo shampoo, St Tropez spray tans - and, a face elixir by little-known brand Beuti Skincare.
Beuti founder Leila Aalam told People last year that Kate keeps three bottles of Beauty Sleep Elixir on her bedside table: ‘We were ecstatic to know that she liked it and was actually using it’.
At £42, the facial oil is made from fourteen precious plant oils including Camelia, Lavender, Geranium and Neroli – it is 98% organic and 100% natural, as well as being made in the UK. Aalam developed the oil after suffering an allergic reaction to a luxury eye cream – ‘I wanted to make a product that truly makes your skin glow and that was as organic as possible’. She told People at that time that she was developing a cleanser, and news is in that she made good on that promise.
At £35, Beuti’s Pomegranate Glow Enzyme Cleanser is also 100% natural, packed with sweet cherry, almond oil, clay, orange peel, honey and mango seed oil. Fermented pomegranate acts as a gentle glycolic acid, Babassu oil is included to provide moisture and three flower essences (laurel, myrtle and iris) aim to give brighter, smoother skin.
This combination of oils is meant to tackle ‘inflammaging’ or rather inflammation of the skin and the tissue beneath the skin – as Aalam say’s ‘It is important we renew and repair the skin by using organic oils which can help to reverse the damage’.
We can’t wait to hear whether the Duchess of Cambridge gives it her royal seal of approval.
