Handmade Heroes - Malaysian Organic Body Care Brand5:58 PM
It's not often that you find a good body care brand that are organic, vegan and cruelty-free. Heck, I can't even name any except for HANDMADE HEROES, founded on the values of an all-natural lifestyle. They have a collection of face masks, body scrubs, lip scrubs, balm and lip tints to dry shampoo and it'll even give LUSH a run for their money. Fans of cruelty-free and organic stuff would love their products as they're made only using natural ingredients - no preservatives, synthetic chemicals and animal product. They're even PETA-certified! Their packaging are carefully sourced and are even BPA-free so it's safe yet affordable. Here are some of the products you should check out from HANDMADE HEROES.
Beauty Warrior Face Masks
These face masks are crafted with unique blends of plant-based ingredients and herbs to remove impurities and rejuvenate dull skin with a dose of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. They're also a face exfoliator so you just simply add a few drops of water (Rose water would be amazing) or herbal tea, as suggested by them and apply it all over your face and leave it for a while before scrubbing your face in circular motion for a micro exfoliation. There are three varieties to choose from - French Green Clay Mask, Hibiscus Vitamin C Boost and Black Charcoal Rice Mask.
These retails at RM 69.90 each.
Drop Dead Gorgeous Dry Shampoo
HANDMADE HEROES' dry shampoo sure do have a cult following that it's even been featured on Buzzfeed! It gives volume to oily limp hair roots by absorbing the excess oils and odour. There's a hint of peppermint for scent and freshness while the lavender and eucalyptus soothes the scalp. It's pretty handy to keep in your handbag especially for travelling! It's great for brunettes and it blends with dark roots (no more white residues on hair!). It uses activated charcoal hence you'd get rid of the oily odour and deodorises the scalp while it absorps toxins and impurities.
The Travel and Purse Size (30 grams) retails at RM 23.90 and the Standard Home Size (67 grams) retails at RM 35.90.
Coco-Friggin' Fantastic Lip Balms and Tints
Okay, I for one, am a fan of their lip tint. I've tried it and have worn it daily ever since I got it. It's not oily or sticky yet it makes sure my lips are not chapped while leaving a very beautiful tint that I'd wear this over my nude lipsticks on a daily basis. It uses organic sweet almond oil and extra virgin coconut oil and made with food grade ingredients without any petroleum or alcohol. There are two shades available - English Rose, a soft natural pink and French Rose, my favorite, a warm rosy red for a pop of color similar to nude lipsticks (it made my lips look fuller too!).
Coco-friggin’ Fantastic Lip Balms are selling for RM 16.90 and Coco-friggin’ Fantastic Lip Tints are RM 19.90 each.
Coco-licious Luscious Lip Scrub
I am a firm believer of lip scrubs before wearing any lipsticks (matte liquids especially) so if you're constantly wearing matte lippies, this would be a good addition to your routine. This lip scrub gently exfoliates and hydrates lips with organic extra virgin coconut oil and dehydrated coconut. They're all made of food grade ingredients so it is safe to ingest and please refrain from finishing it by constantly licking them off your lips. Jokes, by the way.
This retails at RM 22.90.
Butt Kickin' Deep Detoxing Coffee Scrub
Caffeine is known as an anti-cellulite agent so this body scrub is tough on the cellulite but kind on the skin with their ground organic coffee and cinnamon oil. Give your skin some tough love on those areas with this body scrub for only RM 55.90.
HANDMADE HEROES are against animal testing and is certified cruelty-free by PETA. It is currently available via stockists in Singapore, Malaysia, USA and the UK. Visit their website to find out more:
