Little Luxuries

When it comes to beauty and skin care I usually look for a variety of things, great quality in product, packaging, and the ethos of the brand.

The Little Alchemist, an Australian natural skin care brand provides a distinctive range of products, such as natural perfumes, delightful body butters, and body serums, amongst other items to indulge in. Being a person with several allergies doesn't just indicate that I should pay close attention to what I eat, but it also means that I am always doing a bit of research when it comes to what I use on my skin.

The Little Alchemist (TLA) founder, Natalie Van Epen has created a beauty brand to treasure, and worth investing in—luxury and cruelty-free skin care that works for every lifestyle. It’s really the perfect beauty companion whilst travelling!

Since I am usually on-the-go or travelling for work, it’s essential to have a piece of my beauty corner fit in a bag. I wanted to share with you a few new arrivals (body serums) from the TLA line that I have recently tried out.

The first body serum that I used was the Cacao and Cardamom (the serums are made with acai fruit, goji berry, and wheatgrass). The smell alone already had me wanting more; sweet notes that remind you of a fresh baked cake or hints of hot chocolate. The anti-sticky formulas really set well with me, especially since they blend easily on the skin.

Next, the Lime & White Tea serum was great for feeling rejuvenated, as it has a clean citrus fragrance. You can definitely pick up the plant essences as you rub it on your body. At night I used Gardenia and Jasmine serum with the roll-on perfume, which has a sophisticated aroma of a fine floral bouquet. If you want to layer a serum under your perfume, it balances perfectly together.

The Best Bits: these products are greatly concentrated and filled with ethically sourced components, both organic and operative. From vitamins to plant oils, there’s so much loveliness from the earth that is taken into consideration in the development of every product created by hand. So, if you’re a sensitive skin beauty darling or eco-devotee, you’ll appreciate these products. 

Another favourite element is the brand’s transparency: all ingredients are thoughtfully spelled out for you, and if you’re new to the natural beauty department, fret not! The Little Alchemist will have you covered with proper explanations and what the key ingredient(s) in each product actually does.

“Our mission is to bring the spa experience home ... creating a decadent daily ritual that your skin looks forward to.
                                                                   – The Little Alchemist

Here’s my beauty edit of top selections from the brand, including a new personal favourite, the Kyella Rose Antioxidant Hydrate Mist! I am not usually a rose scented type of lady, but this was highly favourable. The mist is refreshing and has key ingredients that nourish the skin as well as soothes irritation. It has the right amount of aroma—a pleasant and feminine light rose scent, (with Bulgarian rose, goji berry, and gotu kola).  

 (Above) A-Cacao and Banana Face Glow mask, B-White Tea Body Butter, C- Wild Apple and Mint purifying cleanser, Ultra C-Radiance Serum, Wild Apple and Mint Antioxidant Balancing Mist. 

I highly recommend these products, especially if you’re into sustainable brands like this and natural skin care. So, what’s on the next beauty wish list to try? Perhaps the Pineapple and Zeolite MicroPolish, it’s infused with Lady’s Mantel, wheatgrass, jojoba spheres, and plantain. Not to mention, it certainly sounds just as wonderful as the others!

    I love the name: The Little Alchemist. Reminds me of Paolo Coelho's book 'The Alchemist'. The packaging is reminiscent of Kiehl's (at least to me). I love the fact that they explain the ingredients to their clients, so they're not wondering what on earth they're applying on their body :)

  17. I've never heard of them but sounds great. I will have to check them out. I love natural products and it is really heard to get products that are 100% natural. Everything that we put on our skin will be absorbed and goes to some extend to our blood stream. So I think we all really need to be more conscious about our beauty routines.
    Thank you for sharing your very informative review.

    Thanks for sharing, Madison. Have not heard of this brand and don't think we have it here in Malaysia, just yet. But most definitely an interesting one if one would love to be kinder to the environment and show a little TLC to our own skin:)) Always good to go more natural *_^


    Have a great week ahead!
