6 Waterless Beauty Buys Cleaning Up Our Routines
Best Waterless Beauty Products
NiodEthylated L-Ascorbic Acid 30% Network, £37.00
The Vitamin C Serum
In our humble opinion, NIOD's Ethylated L’Ascorbic Acid 30% Network doesn’t get enough airtime. The water-free, oil-based formula contains a potent dose of vitamin C (l’ascorbic acid) as well as zinc and selenium to fend off free radical damage from pollution, UV rays and environmental aggressors. Yes, the texture is slightly oily, but it absorbs quickly and the brightening boost you get from regular use makes it worthwhile.
Augustinus BaderThe Face Oil, £70.00
The Face Oil
There’s face oils and then there’s Augustinus Bader The Face Oil, and believe us when we say, the latter is worth every penny. Equipped with the brand’s signature TFC8®, this luxury vegan-friendly face oil melts into skin and leaves you with a post-facial style glow. The packaging is also fully recyclable.
AvedaShampure Nurturing Shampoo Bar, £14.00
The Solid Shampoo
Solid shampoos have a reputation for stripping your hair of all its natural oils and drying it out. Aveda's Shampure Naturing Shampoo Bar has been expertly designed with 25 pure plant extracts to gently cleanse. The formula and the plastic-free packaging were created with the environment in mind. It’s no surprise it’s popular with Space NK customers and rarely in stock.
Drunk ElephantPekee Bar, £25.00
The Cleansing Bar
Drunk Elephant has a few waterless products, but the Pekee Bar is our favourite. It’s been formulated with a pH level of 6.51 to ensure it washes away dirt and grime without leaving your skin feeling squeaky clean and tight. Not only is it water-free but it lasts for ages, making it a financially savvier cleansing option.
Biossance100% Squalane Oil, £25.00
The Multitasking Oil
The name says it all and Biossance100% Squalane Oil is made up entirely of the brand’s vegan squalane oil. You can use the nourishing formula from top to toe to hydrate your hair, skin and nails. Even those with oiler skin will love this oil as it’s super lightweight and doesn’t clog your pores. It’s an all-round crowd pleaser.
TatchaThe Rice Polish: Gentle, £64.00
The Gentle Exfoliator
Physical exfoliators have gone out of fashion with more of us opting for acid toners and treatments to achieve smooth, radiant skin. Tatcha's bestselling Rice Polishes will make you rethink your options though. As soon as the finely milled rice powder comes into contact with water it foams up into a whipped cream that sloughs away dead skin with ease. To say your skin feels soft and smooth after using this would be an understatement. Fortunately, the formula is gentle enough to use every day if you do so wish.
