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 SERUMS AND FACE OILS.
The skin is our largest organ, so it is important to take care of it well. When it’s about revitalizing the skin, the following award-winning products will have you covered, naturally with power ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C, Acacia Senegal Gum, Bakuchiol, as well as Northern Bilberry, and Sea Buckthorn.
Magic Drops of the Swedish brand WISE Organic Skincare was awarded the title of Best Serum. This effective moisture serum, with hyaluronic acid, can be used seven days a week under cream, face oil, face balm, and/or day cream.
Hyaluronic acid is a cell-renewal substance naturally found in the body, but its production decreases with age. With this serum, you can fill out the moisture deposits found deep in the skin, which renews its elasticity and vitality and stimulates cell renewal. It is a must-have in the daily skincare routine for those with fragile, dry, or dried-out acne, who wish for freshness and an inner glow.
“Hyaluronic acid contained in the product is a body-specific substance that diminishes with age. With our Magic Drops, you replenish the moisture stores in-depth and get smoother, happier skin.”
“Fantastic product. Does exactly what it says it’ll do. My skin feels always perfectly moisturized after use.”
“Omg, I am addicted. True magic drops!”Awards Jury
Vitamin C Serum of Ljung Of Lapland was awarded the title of Best Vitamin C Serum. The antioxidants and vitamins, such as A, E, C, and Omega 3, contained in the serum help protect the skin against free radicals. Vitamin C also prevents pigment spots.
“Formulated with heather extract, blackcurrant seed oil, and vitamin C, this is a fast-absorbing and hydrating facial serum, with proven anti-aging and anti-inflammatory effects. Heather extract is rich in antioxidants and contains natural ursolic acid, which through soft impulses supports the structure of the collagen threads, improving elasticity and softening fine lines.”
“I love Ljung of Lapland and every product that I have gotten to try from the brand. They know how to make pleasing scents and my skin has loved everything from them so far!”
“Easy 10/10. I’ve used this serum everyday and there is still more left. It feels amazingly moisturizing and gives the right amount of oil to the skin – and the skin doesn’t feel too oily afterwards!”Awards Jury
ACACIA SENEGAL GUM
Anti-Age & Moisture Elixir of the Danish brand GreenEtiq Denmark was awarded the title of 99% Natural Serum. Using the amazing anti-aging properties of unique ingredients like Acacia Senegal gum, this serum is formulated to moisturize, tone, balance, and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles in the skin. GreenEtiq has also designed the other main ingredients, aloe vera, and hyaluronic acid, to support the benefits of Acacia Senegal gum and to retain hydration.
“The boosting Acacia Senegal Gum is a combination of two natural ingredients extracted from plant roots and tree bark, which support each other so well that they optimize the anti-aging effect. This ingredient penetrates deeper into the skin and from there it smoothes lines and any wrinkles in the skin. “
“I loved this whole product line. I used them all while I was on holiday and they kept my skin perfectly moisturized. Love the simple design as well! Great!!”
“One of my favorites! It moisturized really well my easily irritated skin!”Awards Jury
2+B Bakuchiol Face Oil of the Swedish brand MH+FaceOil was awarded the title of Best Face Oil. Containing natural avocado oil and squalane derived from olive oil, this powerhouse of face oil moisturizes and increases collagen production and elasticity in the skin.
“Our 2+B Face Oil also contains 3% bakuchiol, which is the natural alternative to retinol. Bakuchiol stimulates collagen and reduces signs of aging, such as uneven skin tone, dryness, and fine lines.”
“One of my favourite facial oils, out of all the oils I have ever tested, and so pleased with a different, less damaging alternative to retinol. The scent is really amazing and my skin looked and felt really great every time after using it.”
“One of my favourite face oils. Really liked the scent and it felt like it really moisturised my skin instead of just leaving it oily. Would definitely use this. I like the bottle and packaging too.”Awards Jury
NORTHERN BILBERRY AND SEA BUCKTHORN
The Oil of the Finnish brand AIVA was awarded the title of Best 99% Natural Face Oil. The luxurious, supple, multi-use organic oil absorbs effortlessly into the skin and leaves a soothing, protective layer. Because of its clarifying and balancing ingredients, it suits every skin type, even acne.
“Northern Bilberry seed relieves inflammation while supporting the skin’s collagen, organic Northern sea buckthorn oil helps protect the skin and promote regeneration, and vitamins A, E, and C help clarify the skin’s tone and complexion, promoting a natural glow. The composition of jojoba oil, which helps keep the skin moisturized but not oily, is similar to the skin’s sebum, which helps it stay balanced.”
“Fantastic! Loved it. It really hydrated the skin – after a shower or just anytime during the day. I recommend Aiva Oil to everyone!”
“Amazing! A new favorite product <3 Love the scent and the glowing feeling it leaves on the skin.”Awards Jury
