Henné Organics is a brand that showcases how effective and blissful simplicity can be. Laura Xiao launched Henne Organics in 2015 to introduce a splash of eco bliss into the everyday. The line has taken a modern and minimalistic approach that replaces standard lip care products with something extraordinary. The brand has a focus on quality organic ingredients to create natural, high-performance formulas with the added bonus of luxurious design. Henné means ‘her’ in Swedish, is a dedication to the modern woman while also paying homage to the brand’s Swedish roots. I have been using a few products from the brand in my lip care routine regularly and so excited to share them with you guys.
Henné Organics Lip Mask is a rejuvenating lip mask that allows nourishing ingredients to help restore and sooth the lips while the fresh and subtle sweet citrus scent refreshes the senses. The lush creamy formula glides on effortlessly on the lips. I apply a thick layer of this lip mask on my lips, every night before bedtime until I am ready to sleep. Then I wipe off the excess from the lips with a tissue. Lips are comfortable, nourished, soothed, and supple.
Henné Organics Nordic Berries Lip Exfoliator brings is inspired by the Swedish nature, the scent of this exfoliator is reminiscent of freshly picked forest berries and the beautiful vivid hue just looks so irresistible to just try it and use it. The delicate sugar crystals gently scrub the lips while the scent is soothing, fresh, and invigorating for the senses.
Henné Organics Luxury Lip Tint provides both the nourishing, hydration for the lips and a touch of colour. The formula is sheer and buildable. Intrigue is a classic dark brick red shade that is suitable to most skin tones. It is perfect for everyday use, two swipes on my lips give a subtle hint of color and looks very natural.
Henné Organics Luxury Lip Balm is a cult favourite lip balm which has a creamy formula which glides on the lips effortlessly without any sticky or greasy feeling. I have to say that all the lip products I have used from Henné Organics depict the same luxury in their formulas, effectiveness, and packaging. Apart from being effective, the scents and the ritual of applying them invigorates the senses. This range is definitely keeping my dry flaky lips a lot better than they were before – supple, nourished, hydrated, soft, and comfortable.

With my problem scalp, there are few products I can always rely on and those products do include Christophe Robin products. There is a new product from the brand which I have been using since last few weeks. Christophe Robin launched his cleansing purifying scrub with sea salt in 2013 which is one of a kind scrub, I reviewed it here a few years back, received countless awards worldwide and became a staple for scalp wellness for many worldwide including me.
To enhance his iconic detox ritual, Christophe Robin has created the detangling gelée with sea minerals. Combined with the scalp scrub, this duo forms the perfect detox treatment: a delicate balance between purifying, strengthening and pampering actions to give your scalp and hair a fresh start.
Step 1 is to detoxify with the cleansing purifying scrub with sea salt which is an ideal treatment soothe even the most sensitive scalps, using sea salt, a natural and gentle exfoliator which reactivates blood circulation. Step 2 is to strengthen with the detangling gelée with sea minerals which is a cocktail of micronutrients: zinc, iron, calcium, magnesium and potassium that have been expertly selected to re-mineralize and strengthen the scalp and hair. The duo works nicely as a detox ritual to cleanse and restore balance sensitive or oily scalps. And also as a post-colouring treatment to eliminate chemical residues and soothe tingling and itchiness.
Christophe Robin detangling gelée with sea minerals is ideal as a conditioner after the purifying scrub, this gelée texture instantly detangles without weighing down the hair and it also doubles as a scalp treatment. Sea minerals (zinc, magnesium, iron, calcium and potassium) – essential to the health of the hair – remineralize the scalp and help fortify the hair fibre. Its formula is enriched with a 100% natural-origin, highly emollient, active ingredient to provide hydration and softness. I have noticed my hair feel strong, bouncy, and hydrated while my scalp is calm and comfortable. My sensitive scalp with oily roots and dry hair is definitely benefitting from this new launch.
When it comes to perfection which is natural, beautiful and enough on its own, the one name that comes to my mind is Troy Surratt. There is no product from Troy Surratt which I have not liked yet, every product – be it makeup or the makeup tools – they all work, not just for what they are created for but are versatile enough to be multi-purpose. Surratt Beauty products have been in my routine for a few years and I use them with the same enthusiasm which I had when I first tried them. The newest launches from Surratt Beauty are Torche Lumiere Highlighter and Inner Light Baton.
Surratt Beauty Torche Lumiere Highlighter is inspired by the twinkling jewels in the vitrines of the Place Vendome. This collection of highlighters, in 3 shades, gives a multi-faceted glow to the face. Surratt Beauty’s ‘Torche Lumière Highlighter’ creates the illusion of heightened, angular features and a naturally glowy complexion. It is a creamy stick formula that blends effortlessly into the skin giving a beautiful natural glow. I apply it on the high points of my face – along the cheekbones, brow bone, and sometimes on the bridge of my nose. Torche Lumiere is made with genuine diamond and gold dust. The twist-up stick ensures mess-free application and is convenient for travel.
The three shades are described below.
Rose Diamante – A sheer pink that’s packed with light-catching micro-pearls.
D’Or – It is a golden highlighter to give cheekbones a sun-kissed glow. This creamy formula is infused with light-reflecting micro-pearls to brighten and lift your facial features.
Diamante – It adds a shimmering glow to the face and body. It is infused with golden micro-pearls, this creamy formula seamlessly melts into skin and imparts a pretty, champagne hue.
Surratt Beauty Inner Light Baton clever dual-ended eye baton which is clarifying, redness-neutralizing waterline liner in three shades, with a corresponding shimmering powder to further brighten the inner-eye corners, brow bone, or lash line. Eliminating redness or purple tones along the waterline instantly makes the eyes look bigger and brighter. A sweep of the glimmering powder brings additional light-reflection to the entire eye area, creating a twinkly, starry-eyed effect.
It is rightly compared to whitening toothpaste, just that this one is for eyes. The fact is that the whiter the whites of your eyes look, the bigger and brighter your eyes look making you instantly appear more awake and alert. The addition of the shimmery powder further creates a starry-eyed effect. It can also be used for emphasizing the arch of the brow. The creamy pencil glides seamlessly along the waterline without irritation or discomfort and stays on throughout the day with minimal touchups. The soft sponge tip helps the extra-fine shimmery powder adhere perfectly to the skin, and brings light and radiance to your eye area. The Inner Light Baton is available in three shades described below.
Perlè: White + Scintillating Sparkle: Clarifies and flares the whites of the eyes
Effervesce: Peach + Champagne Sparkle: Eliminates blue or purplish tones along the waterline
Mousseux: Chamois + Rose Gold Sparkle: Neutralizes darkness and discoloration; perfect for deeper skin tones
Definitely staples in my routine, on the days I am in the mood for minimal makeup or the days I in the mood for a more glamorous look, these work in all situations and needs. The staying power is amazing, both for the Torche Lumiere and Inner Light Baton. These are on heavy rotation as is the Perfectionniste Concealer Palette I reviewed here. Surratt Beauty is available at Sephora Canada, Beautylish, Sephora, Barneys New York, CultBeauty, and Net-A-Porter*Press samples
