Blue is both a strong yet soft colour that we often have a good time with. The blue-ness in skincare products might be more natural than we have thought it to be. There has been a trend applying blue botanicals in, its calming and anti-inflammatory power is said to be enormous – imagine how soothing it is to be thrown in a pool of cold water, it’s of much joy if you are in a humid, sub-tropical area like I do.
I have recently been attracted to green beauty products as a more sustainable alternative to my skincare routine. To be honest, it is not easy to find something ‘hydrating’ without a risk of breaking my skin out. I have fair Asian skin that is dry from within while it could get oily – more commonly known as combination skin type. I often wonder if there is a win-win situation where my skin could go acne-free, moisturised while I am not seeking the aid of gel-like products.
The Sinatra Blue Face Serum from Pollen and Wax is my new addiction that I have decided to go for a full-size product when the online shop re-opens in mid-July. I came across this hearty organic brand while looking through various information available on the internet, and I can’t help getting curious about this lightweight oil that wouldn’t worsen my acne-proned skin, and my curiosity is endorsed by the positive comments made to this particular serum. It’s a cocktail of blue flowers extracts, including blue yarrow, blue tansy and blue chamomile.
