Natural makeup to compliment natural skincare


Anne @JdeV Largs store

We hope that you love Salcura and natural products as much as we do! Now that your skin is feeling nice and freshly prepped with the very best ingredients that nature has to offer, let’s take a look at natural makeup to compliment your glowing skin. When it comes to problem skin such as acne, psoriasis, rosacea or eczema picking the right makeup can be just as important as your skincare! Pick wrongly and you can wind up with uncomfortable flare-ups in your symptoms. Don’t worry though, our favourite makeup brand PHB Beauty are on hand with high quality, ethically sourced and nourishing products that will leave your skin looking and feeling fabulous!

Why do we love PHB?

We’ve already touched on our love for PHB Beauty makeup throughout your skincare plan, but today I thought I’d go into a little bit more detail about why we love their products so much! I’m sure you’re aware by now that PHB are a UK-based ethical beauty company who create nourishing, natural products that work in harmony with your skin. They pride themselves on fabulous makeup products that blur the line between makeup and skincare which means that their makeup is not only excellent quality but also nourishing and great for your skin too!

All of their products are handmade with love and a whopping 20% of their profits go to charity! They believe that ‘Plant Powered Beauty’ is the way forward and, here at Jan de Vries we couldn’t agree more! All of the natural ingredients used in their products are ethically sourced, cruelty free, alcohol free and free from harmful chemicals like SLS and parabens too. These Purity Pioneers are have a range of certificates from the Ethical Beauty Awards and are also 100% Vegan Registered too!

Our top PHB makeup picks!

Face – Pure Skin Organic Liquid Foundation
This skin-loving liquid foundation is available in a variety of skin tones from extremely fair to extremely tanned and it is the perfect natural alternative to conventional foundations. This liquid foundation is made with completely organic ingredients that offer long-lasting and full coverage alongside a light and silky texture that doesn’t clog pores. What’s more, PHB foundations are suitable for any and all skin types – even sensitive skin and acne!

If you’re more of a powdered foundation kind of person then PHB also do both loose mineral foundations and pressed mineral foundations that are ethically mined and sourced. All of PHB’s foundations contain a SPF30 which gives your skin some extra protection from environmental factors that can cause damage.

Lips – 100% Pure Organic Lip Gloss
We love PHB’s Pure Organic Lip Glosses! Not only do they soften and moisturise lips, but they also provide an elegant shade of colour too, courtesy of the rich mineral pigments and lip-loving botanical extracts. This super, non-sticky formula was winner of the Janey Lee Grace Beauty Awards in 2014 and, with a choice of vibrant shades and long-lasting capacities this lip gloss is definitely a winner in our books too!

Eyes – All in One Natural Mascara
Recommended by Vogue as Best Kept Beauty Secrets and Winner of the Green Parent Beauty Awards in 2013, we are sure this is a mascara you’ll love! Length? Volume? Strength? Anti-clump? This little mascara just does it all! Made with botanical oils to protect your lashes, this product is great for those of you with sensitive eyes and, like all of PHB’s products, this mascara is free from nano particles, parabens, fillers and artificial fragrances.
