Nordic Natural Beauty Awards 2022 were organized on the awards’ Instagram account on Thursday, October 27th, 2022. The competition was tight in all of the categories, proving that all the nominees are just incredible.

We wanted to take a deeper look at the awarded cosmetics and why they specifically make a great addition to anyone’s beauty routine. To avoid the list becoming one heavy manual (even though we know it would be a good one!), we divided the awarded cosmetics into seven parts. This post is all about FACIAL CLEANSING AND TONING PRODUCTS.

The skin is our largest organ, so it is important to take care of it well. Whether it’s about cleansing or toning, these following award-winning products will have you covered, naturally.


AYU Organics – Seabuck&Baobab Oil To Milk Cleanser

The Finnish brand AYU Organics’ Seabuck&Baobab Oil To Milk Cleanser was awarded the title of Best Cleanser. This Oil To Milk Cleanser is a luxurious cleansing oil that cleanses impurities and makeup gently and effectively, without clogging skin pores. With ingredients full of skincare benefits, such as antioxidant baobab oil, camellia oil containing plant collagen, and sea buckthorn oil rich in vitamins A, C, and carotenoids, it strengthens, renews, and nourishes the skin. 

Our Seabuck&Baobab Oil To Milk Cleanser leaves the skin clean, fresh and soft. The scent of Seabuck&Baobab combines the softness of enchanting vanilla, the sharpness of sea buckthorn, and the elegant citrus Litsea Cubeba.”

“Love how milky it turns when adding water to it! Cleansed my face really well too! This is an incredible product!”

Flawless! Definitely a huge favorite. Love the scent!

Kajo Cosmetics – Hydrophilic Cleansing Oil

Hydrophilic Cleansing Oil of the Finnish brand Kajo Cosmetics was awarded the title of Best Package Design. The rich cleansing oil and makeup remover is based on a mixture of natural oils and vitamin E. It forms a pleasant emulsion and cleans the skin perfectly without a greasy feeling.

“Our Hydrophilic Cleansing Oil effortlessly dissolves impurities, base makeup, and waterproof eye makeup. It helps protect the lipid barrier and preserve the skin’s natural resilience for a smoother feel after cleansing. The oil is formulated with nourishing antioxidants for healthy-looking radiance and it leaves the skin feeling soft and moisturised.”

The packaging is carefully thought out and designed, with a luxurious touch in mind. This showed also in the comments from the awards’ jury:

​​”This product has such a beautiful bottle! It feels exclusive and luxurious.”

“This has been my go-to cleanser ever since I got this. Really fresh smell, love the texture, but most importantly, it really cleanses your skin and removes all dirt and makeup. My skin feels so hydrated and soft after using it, no matter what I apply afterward, so it’s almost a moisturizer in itself and cleanses your skin at the same time. Love this product!”
