Get your glow on, girl! Two boss babes, Connie Lo and Laura Burget founded NIU BODY 1 year ago this month and the brand’s buzz is quickly gaining momentum. After realizing that most other natural/organic product lines boast premium pricing and an air of better-than that isnt exactly welcoming, the BFFs set out to create their own line.
Being avid natural skin care enthusiasts and makeup users, they were especially frustrated with the saturation of harsh synthetic makeup removers in the market. In their quest to find the best natural solution, they turned to coconut oil, a beauty favorite, for their initial makeup remover product line. From there, they have expanded their line to include not only coconut oil, but also Earth’s other wonderful natural ingredients in their products.
All of NIU BODY’s products are truly natural, 100% vegan, cruelty-free and made with love in small batches in Toronto, Canada. They source the finest ingredients from around the globe, formulating only with the purest and most effective ingredients. They firmly believe skin care should not be one-size-fits-all, and use unique botanical blends with catered benefits for every babe’s different skin type or concern in mind.
Based on my skin type (combination/sensitive with hyperpigmentation), I leapt at the chance to try the brands Calm Lavender Toning Mist to even out and ease my redness-prone complexion, Hydrate Moisturizing Facial Serum to plump and rehydrate my lackluster winter skin, and Ylang Ylang & Rose Cleansing Oil to remove makeup, relax inflammation and control oil production. After a month of testing and gradually introducing the products into my routine, I can confidently say that my skin has calmed down in terms of redness and Ive noticed less dry spots. While effective, the only drawback is how small the bottles are. Yes, the packaging is on point and Instagram-worthy but give me more, ladies! All-in-all, I would be highly inclined to repurchase all three since you cant beat the price or how precious they look in a shelfie.
