CROP NATURAL SKINCARE AND BEAUTY PROUCT HAUL FEAT. NATURAL VOLUMISING MASCARA, NATURAL MINERAL EYESHADOW DUO + PURE ROSEHIP OIL REVIEWS!

 HELLO BEAUTIES! 

CROP, are a naturally derived skincare and cosmetics line. They launched in Coles supermarkets late last year. 

I've always been curious with these naturally derived products. Their products are suitable for both men and women of all types of ages. Why made their range stand out for me is that every product in their skincare range is at least 95% naturally derived and enriched with the essential oil blends.The specific blends are not generic combinations but they include unique combinations that incorporate ingredients that aim to benefit your skin's health and stimulate skin protection. 

So why should you also look to check out CROP COSMETICS? 
  • They are dermatologically tested. 
  • Suitable for sensitive skin types. 
  • More than 80% come from naturally derived formulations. 
  • The products have a sophisticated design.
  • Comes with natural SPF.
  • Made in Europe! 

I looked to put THESE products from the CROP range including cosmetics and skincare to the test to really see whether it helped me in any way. They include: 
  • CROP - NATURALLY VOLUMISING MASCARA. 
  • CROP - NATURAL MINERAL EYESHADOW QUAD. 
  • CROP - PURE ROSEHIP OIL

Check out my thoughts below to learn more about this exciting range! 


CROP, NATURAL MINERAL EYESHADOW QUAD in NUDE. 

Featuring a finely micronised powder that offers a multi-tonal nutrient-rich and non-drying eyeshadow.

If you are in the market for a natural looking type of eyeshadow that offers the soft neutral and warm toned colours, then you really should look to check this eyeshadow quad out. The pressed eyeshadow is in the form of a powder that offers 4 tones that can either be worn alone or blended to create a smokey eyed effect. 

It's interesting to know just how safe the product is to use as it doesn't contain parabens, mineral oils, synthetic pigments or fragrances and many more features that do in fact make this product really safe and gentle. Overall I love the light pigmentation of the colours. I've provided a swatch below for if you're wanting to see how the colours turned out. The fact that they are in a quad form really gives you more option to play with because all 4 of the colours are beautiful and natural. They're definitely ideal if you're wanting to create a smokey-eyed effect or simply want a nice neutral and warm look to your eyes.

The packaging of the eyeshadow is quite cute and compact. It's in a round palette where you just simply lift the lid to open the product. It somewhat reminds me of the MAC packaging but nevertheless I love how CROP logo is unique and very simple - making it easily identifiable if you were shopping in your local Coles aisle. 

The product has been enriched with the following: 
  • Zinc Oxides - This is for soothing and anti-inflammatory purposes. 
  • Iron Oxides - Provides a natural finish. 
  • Vitamin E - For hydrating purposes. 
  • Vitamin A - Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

FEAT. NATURAL MINERAL EYESHADOW DUO. 


Pictured above features the four swatches from the CROP Natural Mineral Eyeshadow Quad.

1 - Shows a lighter cream, beige and neutral coloured eyeshadow. You can also use this as a soft highlighter or as a blending colour for the other warm shades. 
2 - We have more of slight tanned brown shade where it's very warm looking and is quite nice. 
3 - This is more of a matte light brown shade which is perfect for blending into a smokey-eyed effect, 
4 - This brown has bits of shimmer to it making this eyeshadow colour more prettier than the other shades. 



CROP, NATURAL VOLUMISING MASCARA

This mascara offers a conditioning lash lengthening formulation that looks to strengthen the lashes. 

What we have here is a mascara that's also catered for those with sensitive eyes. The ergonomically designed applicator brush encompasses large bristles so you can actually reach your outer lashes with more volume and then the smaller bristles for the inner lashes which is made for precision.

The product has been enriched with the following: 
  • Natural waxes - Made to build your lash volume. 
  • Vitamin E - To hydrate and nourish your lashes. 
  • Vegetable oil - To nourish and strengthen your lashes. 
  • Natural Glycerine - Protects and smooths. 
When I used the mascara, I could definitely see a visible improvement to the lengthening and volumising factor to my lashes. The natural glycerine looks to condition your lashes with each application therefore you don't get that dry feeling to your lashes or any clumps. There are no synthetic pigments in the product which is a positive aspect of using this mascara. My overall impressions of using this mascara is that I felt it was a lovely, natural mascara to use on my lashes. It didn't feel like I had a whole lot product on my lashes which was good and most importantly, it felt light and natural to have on. 

The product also says NO to the following:

  • Finish off with a light application to the lower lash line.

NOW FOR SKINCARE! 


CROP, PURE ROSEHIP OIL

This products looks to protect and restore your skin by acting as a nourishing anti-ageing care for all skin types. 

This is an Australian made product where the CROP Pure Rosehip oil is very lightweight and very absorbing when applied onto the skin. It's full of Vitamin A properties which is essential for fighting against the ageing effects because it looks to restore vitality in damaged skin - for your face and body. Also there's Vitamin C present in the Rosehip oil which make it important in protecting your skin from the sun and ageing. It can be easily worn alone, under make-up or also mixed with your regular moisturiser if you're in need of a boost to your hydration levels. 

I love using this Rosehip oil every night just before bed. The smell is quite natural and not strong for a type of oil which is good because you'd want your pamper spa treatment to be a pleasant experience. The Rosehip oil is quite bearable so that's why I've been using this on a daily basis alongside my other skincare routine. The next morning after using, I have seen a considerable difference in my complexion where it's less dry and flaky these days. Thanks to the Rosehip oil, I can really look to rely on this product to prevent further ageing down the track and look younger again. 

The product also says NO to the following: 
NO PARABENS
NO PHTHALATES
NO SULPHATES
NO ANIMAL TESTING

BEAUTY TIPS: 
  • Look to massage around 2-3 drops of the Rosehip oil on your face and all around your neck after cleansing in an upward motion.
  • Use twice a day, morning and night.
