Tried & Tested: Grown Alchemist Skincare

Tried & Tested: Grown Alchemist

We’ve introduced Australian botanical skincare brand, Grown Alchemist last month and after testing it out, we are definitely keeping these on our counter in the long run! We love the natural, refreshing scent of the ingredients of these products which we think acts as a form of aromatherapy too during our beauty routine.

Founded by two brothers, Keston and Jeremy Muijs, Grown Alchemist skincare is made with a new generation of healthy formulations with active plant-based ingredients so their products are compatible with human biology, making it suitable for even the most sensitive skin type.

We tested out the Grown Alchemist Gentle Gel Cleanser, Balancing Toner, Antioxidant + Facial Oil, Hand Wash, and Hand Cream.

Tried & Tested: Grown Alchemist Skincare-Pamper.myGentle Gel Cleanser, Geranium Leaf, Bergamot & Rose-Bud, RM160 (200ml)

This gentle foaming cleanser leaves your skin fresh and clean – without stripping or drying it out. Chamomile, Bergamot and Willow Bark helps to smoothen your skin’s texture and reduce the appearance of pores while the Polysaccharides from the cold-pressed Rose Petals soothe and tone your skin.

We foam it up before applying it on our skin and after washing it off, it left our skin softer yet clean from any makeup residue and dirt. The pump makes it so much easier to dispense the cleanser too.

Balancing Toner, Rose, Ginseng & Chamomile, RM145 (200ml)

This alcohol-free toner contains Olive and Chamomile extracts that gently tightens and smoothens without drying out your skin, while the Ginseng and Aloe Vera tones and soothes. It also has Vitamin C to protect your skin against free-radical damage.

We used this with a cotton as it helps to remove any remnants that the cleanser didn’t manage to remove. We didn’t get the skin tight feeling that most toners give and our skin felt more refreshed after.

Antioxidant + Facial Oil, Borago, Rosehip & Buckthorn, RM220 (25ml)

We used this at night only but we love how our skin looked brighter and nourished the following morning! This potent certified organic facial oil is formulated with a synergistic blend of antioxidants and nutrients that visibly improves skin’s elasticity and protect your skin against signs of ageing.

This potent oil blend is made from:

  • Sea Buckthorn Berry – Rich in Omega 7: Promotes healing, regeneration; minimises scar tissue, also alleviates stretchmarks.
  • Sweet Almond Oil – Deeply replenishing and nourishing. Rich in Omega 6 and 9 essential fatty acids. Sweet Almond Oil has a proven ability to increase elasticity and to maintain strong moisture levels in the skin.
  • Borago Oil – One of the richest sources of GLA (Gamma–Linolenic Acid). Soothing, moisturising and clarifying – it minimises redness, flakiness and stress on the skin.
  • Rosehip Extract – Naturally balances the skin. A multi–tasking extract to balance all skin conditions. Naturally astringent, and regulating. It can treat acne, eczema and also nourish the skin – as well as minimise signs of ageing on maturing/ demanding skins.

Tried & Tested: Grown Alchemist Skincare-Pamper.myHand Wash, Sweet Orange, Cedarwood & Sage, RM106 (300ml)

We don’t really put much attention to our hand wash until we used this one from Grown Alchemist. Our hands are hooked to the gentle formula and refreshing scent which is due to antioxidant rich cold pressed Sweet Orange Oil that leaves our hands looking radiant and the Sage Extract which is rich in calcium and Vitamin A helps to stimulate blood circulation, to oxygenate the skin which improves the elimination of toxins.

Tried & Tested: Grown Alchemist Skincare-Pamper.myHand Cream, Vanilla & Orange Peel, RM85 (65ml)

A must-have for your office desk, the citrus scent of the orange peel perks you up when you’re feeling sleepy and it has a fast-absorbing, non-oily texture so it doesn’t disrupt our typing/writing momentum at all. The Orange Peel Oil in the hand cream provides powerful antioxidants that leave your skin supple and toned.
