With so many different skincare, haircare, and makeup products on the market, it’s hard to know which products to choose! We’ve made it easy for you. This month, Healthy Living London has compiled some of the best products to keep your skin looking radiant and your hair looking luscious.
Autumn Hair Care
Centred award-winning range of hair care is made to not only keep your hair looking and feeling fresh but is also designed to target specific issues with our hair that we may face, like re-hydrating dry and damaged hair, or targeting scalp dryness and dandruff. They also have supplements available that boost body function and in turn, boost hair growth.
As someone who has bleached my hair over the last decade, and only now has returned to my natural colour, I was on the lookout for products that would re-hydrate and repair my previously damaged hair without creating oily build-up and shine.
I tried out the Daily Calma Shampoo and conditioner, as well as the En-Root Scalp Treatment and boy, did my hair thank me! After the first use of all three products, my hair immediately looked healthier and smoother, and it felt softer.
I’d highly recommend this range to those looking for natural hair care that gets your luscious locks to their best condition. These products are suited to all hair types.
Autumn Skin Care
Sensica is a brand with an amazing range of devices set out to offer real benefits and results to your skincare routine. I was invited to try out the Anti-Aging Sensilift device that is intended to do just as it says; reduce signs of ageing!
How the device works, is by using dynamic Radio Frequency, the massaging mechanism and RF therapy stimulate circulation where collagen forms. Therefore, the device enhances existing collagen along with generating new collagen to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. An option to reduce wrinkles without cosmetic surgery or injections? Yes please!
After using the product twice, I did notice my skin looking more plump and healthy. There is a warm, comforting heat that comes from the device as it you glide it over your skin which is part of the collagen-stimulating process. The product is super easy to use, which makes using this on a regular basis quite nice.
To start off, you make sure your face is clean, dry and product free. Next, you apply a thin layer of base gel to the treatment area and lastly, you set treatment levels and move the device in a circular motion for optimal results. Repeat the process once a week for 8 weeks.
They even have a 100% money-back guarantee for those who are not satisfied with their results. With nothing to lose and collagen to gain, you may want to give it a try!

BY SARAH is a skin and hair-care line that started with a beautiful purpose. Sarah, a skin-care expert, started creating the products after her sister Lauren was facing issues with her skin and hair after being treated for Leukaemia. Sarah sought out to develop products made from innovative plant oils and other natural, non-irritating ingredients.
Her range includes produces such as Hero Facial Oil (Featured in Vogue and my personal favourite product), Oil-to-milk Cleanser (featured in ELLE), Reviver Hydrating Mist, Body Oil, Lip and Hand Balm, Ally Blemish Recovery Oil, and Hair Oil.
Sarah has received many awards and features for her amazing products that are intended to naturally nourish your hair and skin through the benefit of plant nutrients, enzymes and lipids.
Using these products has truly given my skin that natural glow, and repaired previous damage I have had. I also feel good knowing the products are made from natural ingredients and are fragrance-free.
Sarah does a wonderful job at creating powerful products from nature that achieve results. Her genuine care for skin health shows through her company and amazing products.
For a little pick-me-up during the day when your skin needs a freshen up, I recommend the stunning (and great smelling) Lavender Hydrating Mist from Jurlique.
This mist starts at £36 for a 100ML bottle that will keep your face feeling and looking moisturized. Not only does the mist keep your face fresh, but IT also protects from external aggressors, soothes the skin through its lavender extract and plant-based antioxidants, and is clinically proven to provide instant hydration. Jurlique believes in preserving the integrity of nature, choosing to harvest their ingredients at the moments of their peak, to extract their fresh essence.
I loved carrying this product with me on my travels, as it’s a great way to keep your skin fresh when you don’t have time to wash and redo your face during work or travel hours.
Being a woman that is not fond of wearing a ton of makeup as well as being quite picky about the makeup brands I use, Madara’s Organic Makeup stood out to me with their product range.
I tried their Soft-Glow Foundation, Matte Lipstick and Grow and Fix Brow and Lash Booster. All these products are produced with ingredients that take your skin’s health into account.
To start off, I put on the Soft-Glow Foundation. Usually, I’m not a fan of wearing foundation, as it often feels like an additional layer of skin on my face and leads to break-outs. When applying the soft-glow foundation, I didn’t feel this was the case. The product felt very lightweight, yet gave a smooth, even finish to my skin.
The Matte Lipstick was next in line. This product is 100% organic and vegan, made with pure minerals. I liked knowing that the products I’m putting on my face wouldn’t damage or irritate my skin. Sometimes with matte lipsticks, the outcome can look a little dry and irritate your lips over a prolonged period of time. This product really surprised me with the results! After hours of wear, my lips still felt hydrated and looked pigmented due to the hydrating formula that contains blueberry seed oil and shea butter. I would recommend re-applying the product throughout the day, as the colour did fade over time.
My last and favourite product would have to be the Brow and Lash Booster. I didn’t use this product on my brows, as I naturally already have quite thick brows, but I did use it on my lashes and saw Immediate results throughout the week! You apply the lash booster serum directly to your lashes like mascara and through its special ingredients like peptides, caffeine and vitamin extract from Northern Chanterelle, your lashes will grow like crazy! I was ecstatic to see such large results in a short frame of time and will certainly be buying this product again when I run out.
