I am on hunt for beautiful natural beauty routine which is full of skin loving ingredients and at the same time has low impact on the environment around us. There are some areas in my routine where I’ve succeeded, for example my favourite body butter from Anemone. Sometimes though I choose to support a company that’s not small and mindful and independent. And you know what? I don’t beat myself up about it. I choose products in my beauty routine with intent, I mostly own only one of each and I treasure these products greatly. I genuinely love using them and they add value to my life. That’s what balance means for me. And that’s why I want to share with you my love for this exceptionally beautiful hair mist. It’s Aura Botanica Essence d’éclat by Kérastase (owned by L’Oréal Professional).
4 reasons I love Aura Botanica Essence d’éclat by Kérastase
Absolutely non-greasy and real summer glow
The main reason why I adore this hair oil mist is that it’s absolutely non-greasy. It doesn’t weigh my hair down at all. This mist is super nourishing. It tackles annoying flyaways and makes my hair extremely smooth. Not in a heavy flat as a fart kind of way. More like wild beachy but “been taking collagen supplements for the past 5 years” kind of healthy. I use this mist on dry but also on wet hair. It gives me the healthiest summer glow I could ever imagine.
Silicone and paraben free
Kérastase offers a range of various lines tackling different hair problems. Aura Botanica has been specifically designed to offer a natural solution for dull, dry hair. All products in this particular collection contain no silicones, parabens, are made out of 99% ingredients of natural origin, are 99% biodegradable and the key ingredients are responsibly sourced. It’s not all gold, but better than nothing! This mist contains renewable avocado oil, it’s rich in Omegas 6 and 9, jojoba oil, and rosemary extract. The beautiful aromatherapy scent is fuelled by sweet orange essential oil.
So many different uses!
I love multipurpose products. They just make so much sense to me. This heavenly scented mist can used as a hair oil. You just spritz it into dry or towel dried hair. You can also use it as a scalp and deep conditioning hair treatment. Apply it on scalp and roots, wait for 30 minutes or longer and wash it off thoroughly. You can also use it as a massage oil (super handy for it has got a spray nozzle) or just rub it in dry patches on your skin. The aromatherapy scent will make you feel like you’re in a spa.
A beauty in its own right
Obviously you can’t overlook the actual design of this gem. It comes in a heavy glass bottle (which means it’s recyclable) with a stunning floral design on it. The spraz nozzle is very fine so you won’t splash half of it on your hair in one go. The bottle is huge (100 ml!) so it will last a very long time, I’ve had it for a good couple of months already and have used the tiniest amount.
