The delightful Geraldine (one half of Geraldine Pierre Skin Care – the other half is Pierre her furry co-founder and poodle extraordinaire) sent me a bottle of her Gently Pamper Oil to try after we were chatting and both discovered a shared love for animals.
As I’ve matured over the years, my needs in a beauty product have changed – and I don’t just mean from “youthful” to “anti-aging” beauty products – but a more conscious, mindful approach to purchasing products has developed. Years ago there was very little in the “cruelty free” range of products available on the market – and trying to find natural, organic products was just as hard.
Thankfully, products that cater for this need are starting to take over the market – forcing larger corporations and brands to re-evaluate how they approach the beauty (and other) industries, as more and more consumers are becoming conscious of their purchasing habits and demanding less chemicals and more natural products.
Geraldine Pierre Skin Care has taken a holistic approach to beauty with a range of natural handmade skin care products which supports real, untampered beauty – designed to inspire you to feel more confident and comfortable being yourself – embracing your natural beauty and caring about yourself as a whole.
Geraldine Pierre Skin Care is natural, handmade in small batches, Australian Certified Toxic-Free, PETA Cruelty-Free and Vegan Friendly which means your skin will be well cared for!
I love the Gently Pamper Oil and have used it in more than just my everyday beauty regime (I have been applying this under my moisturiser – I’ve been using it along with a cleanser and moisturiser from Happy Skincare – another brand that shares the same values as Geraldine Pierre Skin Care and both brands products complimented each other really well! You can see my review for Happy Skincare here). I’m excited to learn that Geraldine will soon be launching her own cleanser and moisturiser soon. After using the Gently Pamper Oil, I’m sure they’ll be just as lovely to use – the oil feels so luxurious and lasts for so long too! A high quality product that delivers on it’s promise.
The Gently Pamper Oil has many varied uses. I’ve applied it to elbows and knees to give a little moisture to those dry areas. One of my favourite uses is adding a little of the oil to my hair. I have naturally wavy hair, but if there’s even a hint of moisture in the air my hair instantly frizzes in a MAJOR way – adding the oil to my hair on those days not only tames the flyaways, but actually accentuates the natural curl/wave in my hair, adding a touch of shine as it gently curls.
If you like your pamper sessions, you’ll love the diversity to this product – not only do you apply it under your moisturiser, but you can add a couple of drops to your mask (either face or hair). Love manis/pedicures? Use it on your cuticles! Why not massage a few drops into your feet, apply some socks then curl up with your fave book or movie whilst it works it magic. Oh and men – you’re not forgotten either – you can use this as a beard oil as well.
I thoroughly enjoyed using this product and I love the holistic and animal friendly approach Geraldine has towards beauty products.I love the way my skin looks and feels after using this product, I’m glowing with the confidence that I know my skin is looking its best.
I’m really looking forward to the upcoming launch of the Cleansers & Moisturisers as Geraldine continues to expand the range of skin care products. If you’d like to stay in the loop (as well as receive beauty tips etc), you can join the Geraldine Pierre Community here.
