REVIEW BY THE ECOLOGICAL

Calling all skincare lovers - Nudge Boutique has got a natural lineup that you won't want to miss!

Nudge Boutique is a Norfolk based green beauty brand that specializes in hair and skin products that will nourish and soothe thanks to the plant based ingredients within each formulation.  Founder Jo created her products with the wellbeing in women in mind, and I find her mission so inspiring and relatable:

"As a woman in midlife, I have moved beyond  fear based anti-ageing messages and prefer gentle nudges that inspire me to make the most of who I am at the age that I am at.  This is how I run my brand.
As a mother and grandmother, legacy is important to me. I give back to children born with facial differences, so that they may learn to grow with a confident and healthy self image."
Not only are all of the products from Nudge Boutique totally natural, they are also vegan friendly, cruelty free, and made in small batches with love, dedication, and a huge amount of skill.  Plus, you will be surprised by just how unique these creations prove to be!

I have been sent a selection of green goodies to try out from the Nudge Boutique range, and I am so thankful for the chance to delve into a brand that has been on my radar for some time now.  I have been testing out their super Saffron Glow Facial Oil Serum as well as their Shampoo Tabs for normal/dry hair types for about a month now, and I'm so excited to finally share my thoughts!


Saffron Glow Facial Oil Serum
Dry skin sufferers rejoice, for Saffron Glow Facial Oil Serum is a product that delivers a powerful punch of moisture that will leave your skin feeling restored in no time.

This deeply nourishing formula contains a host of healing ingredients, including virgin prickly pear, organic rosehip, blackcurrent seed, vegan squalane, carrot seed CO2, oat kernel, jojoba, and sunflower.  Not only does this lock in hydration and moisture thanks to the special blend, but it also works to brighten skin and even out your complexion thanks to the addition of saffron stigmas and essential oils like sweet orange, neroli, rosemary, and lemon.  This is definitely a glow boosting and regenerative product, and one that dry, mature, and dull skin will thrive with.]The lush golden hue is like a summer sunset that gently kisses the earth and it definitely captures the nurturing glow it delivers.  This is a comforting experience through and through, and everything from the colour to the scent works to envelop you with nature's embrace.  I mean, the aroma is just so invigorating, with a grounding and uplifting smell that has herbal spice at the forefront with soft delicate citrus beneath the surface that delivers a brightening boost for the senses.  It's different, and a blend you really need to try to grasp how unique it really is.

Texture wise, this is silky smooth and ultra nourishing.  As you know, my skin is pretty prone to congestion, so I admit I was a little uncertain how my face would react to the Saffron Glow Facial Oil Serum.  This has a rich decadent consistency that is both luxurious as well as intensive, and it is heavier than what I am used to.  That being said, it does absorb well and I found my skin fared well with no blemishes.  For me, that's a total win.  And the natural glow after application is great - it has a dewy finish that makes the skin look revived and youthful, and I definitely noticed a difference in my complexion with regular use.

I do think for summer it is a bit too much for me daily, however I have been LOVING it as an after sun treatment and as an overnight repair product.  It soothes my skin, leaves it feeling replenished and really soft, and I notice that the next day it feels far less tight than it normally would after a long time outdoors.  Plus, I'm already looking forward to using this in the winter months as I can tell it will be a total hero come the windy and wet weather!
