MALLOW+WHITE: THE LESS-IS-MORE CLEAN BEAUTY BRAND BRITISH BLOGGERS ARE LOVING RIGHT NOW

AUGUST BRAND OF THE MONTH: MALLOW + WHITE

Oh, simplicity! Our breath of fresh air in a rush-rush, busy life. Last week I spotted (another) big glossy mag listing clean beauty brands that are not – annoying, and factually incorrect, especially when there are plenty of genuinely green brands around to take your pick from. (The writer got in touch with me and the magazine amended the online article.)

 

 

Multiple award-winning (Green Parent, FreeFrom and both Beauty Shortlist and Beauty Shortlist Baby, among others) British artisan brand Mallow+White would be on my go-green list for sure.  And in what’s turned out to be perfect unintentional timing for this post, Joanna White has literally just launched a cute array new try-me/travel sizes.

The Mallow Minis have landed!

Jet-set try-me’s you’ll want to take for a test-drive

I’ve watched Joanna’s garden-inspired inspired brand thrive and grow, from almost the day she launched it. And we all know green bloggers are an exacting bunch to please (it’s one of the reasons we love them!) so the fact that Mallow+White’s “6 ingredients or less” simplicity and authentic voice has been so well received by them speaks absolute volumes for the love, passion and integrity Joanna has poured into her small batch brand (not so small now – Mallow + White is available at LoveLula and other retailers now, as well as at M+W’s own site.

6 ingredients or less …becuase #simpleisbeautiful

Joanna’s launches have been popping up all over the UK’s most trusted beauty bloggers’ social media feeds lately like wildflowers after rain and sunshine. So we thought: why not ask six of the most respected bloggers (it turned out to be seven in the end, some are exclusively green but not all) to single out their one, favourite, stand-alone product from the Mallow+White collection?

Here’s what they chose…

The Multi-Tasker: 
MALLOW + WHITE BLOSSOM BALM

“I adore the simplicity of the Mallow + White Blossom Balm. Six ingredients, all chosen for their affinity with bees that work together in harmony with your skin. A great multi-tasker and a real celebration of nature, of which are bees a key part. This product can do it all, cleanse, moisturise and is perfect as a treatment mask too.”

Mallow+White have just launched their minis and this comes in a 15ml trial size, too

  • Camellia Seed Oil
  • Apricot Kernel Oil
  • Sunflower Seed Oil

“A happy sigh-inducing, soothing, 100% natural cleanser with the most divinely cucumbery scent you ever did smell”

“My favourite product in the Mallow+White range is the Soothe Cleansing Oil – a happy sigh-inducing, soothing, 100% natural cleanser with the most divinely cucumbery scent you ever did smell. On a hot day it’s as refreshing as a G&T, on a cold day it’s summer in a bottle”

Ingredients:

  • Cucumber Seed Oil
  • Rice Bran Oil
  • Grapeseed Oil
  • Apricot kernel oil
  • Jojoba oil

The Multi-Use 6-Ingredient Face Mask: REVITALISE PINK CLAY FACE MASK

bbalm.blogspot.co.uk

“I’d choose the fabulous multi-purpose Revitalise Face Mask.

Mallow+White’s Revitalise Face Mask can be used as a mask or an exfoliator (I love a multi-use product). It’s made from only six ingredients (Pink & Red French Clays, Moroccan Lava Clay, Organic Cornstarch, Organic Hibiscus Flower and Palmarosa essential oil) which soften, moisturise, regenerate, rejuvenate and draw out impurities from the skin. I love customising my mask with a few drops of Revitalise Facial Oil, a teaspoon of moisturising & healing honey or some nourishing natural yoghurt. The mask leaves my skin looking clear and luminous.”

Why it works:

  • Pink French clay is rich in silica, and gently and effectively draws out impurities while softening and toning the skin.
  • French red clay is rich in iron oxide, and works to revitalise and improve skin radiance.
  • Moroccan Lava clay provides a silky smooth coverage on the skin and helps draw out toxins.
  • Organic Cornstarch is gently cleansing, soothing, and softening for the skin.
  • Organic Hibiscus flower is rich in anti-oxidants, and is known as the “Botox plant” with powerful anti-aging plant actives to help increase skin elasticity and even skin tone,
  • Palmarosa essential oil helps the formulation of new skin tissue, so is useful for regenerating the skin.

The Skin Cocooner: SOOTHE CLEANSING OIL

”Of all of Mallow & White face care products I have tried, my personal favourite is the Soothe Cleansing Oil. Its texture comforts & luxuriously cocoons the skin, while the cooling scent of Cucumber Oil cools not just the skin, but the mind as well. I appreciate a product that without reinventing the wheel, creates something simple, yet very effective.”

‘The Mallow & White Soothe Mask is my ‘go to’ product for calming skin and leaving a smooth, matte finish ready for makeup application.’

What would I pick (if anyone’s asking?!) – the Soothe Cleansing Oil would be up there, along with Joanna’s Restore Facial Oil (comfort blanket in a bottle – she does 3 face oils for 3 types of skin: sensitive, normal and mature) but as a multi-tasking balm addict, I’m opting for the newest baby in the Mallow + White collection: the Lip Balm.
