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 CARE COSMETICS AND MAKEUP.
The skin is our largest organ, so it is important to take care of it well. Whether it’s about pampering your skin with a mask, moisturizing the skin around your eyes, lips, or lashes, or preparing the makeup base for the day (or evening), the following award-winning products will have you covered, naturally.
PAMPER YOUR SKIN WITH A MASK
The Face Mask of the Finnish brand Erisan+ was awarded the title of Best Face Mask (99% natural). This face mask has prebiotic ingredients that are designed to balance, moisturize, reduce oiliness and soothe the skin. One of these prebiotic ingredients, which is fermented rice water, is especially good for activating collagen synthesis.
“Erisan+ is our product series for sensitive skin designed to strengthen the skin’s own resistance. The products in the series contain prebiotics that balance the skin, strengthen the skin’s natural resistance and increase skin health by promoting the growth of beneficial microbes.”
“An absolute favourite! Loved everything about this mask, from consistency and scent to how well it revitalized my skin!”
“The best one! Love that the mask may stay overnight. Congratulations!”Awards Jury
CARE FOR THE SKIN AROUND YOUR EYES
The eye contour serum 010 Serum, Eyes, Puffy, No More of the Finnish brand aie cosmetics was awarded the title of Best Eye Care Product. Being the brand’s secret weapon against wrinkles, this eye contour serum targets puffiness and small wrinkles. A refreshing and efficient eye opener, for your eyes only.
“There are some ingredients that we like to bring up, however, the perfect aie feeling is made by combining all the necessary ingredients, nothing less, nothing extra.“
“Love this eye serum! The cooling effect it has – it always feels cold when applying, and I think it also makes lines less visible.”
“I prefer this to regular eye creams, because it feels so light. It’s great under makeup as well!”Awards Jury
The Anti-Age Eye Contour Cream of the Danish GreenEtiq Denmark was awarded the title of Best 99% Natural Eye Care. This light eye cream is packed with nutritious ingredients like almond oil, pomegranate, and cactus. Formulated especially for the fine eye area, it has a light consistency that cares, soothes, nourishes, and moisturizes.
“Organic almond oil, shea butter, and aloe vera, as well as plenty of natural hyaluronic, pomegranate, grape seed oil, and cactus together, deliver our unique product that provides moisture and balance, while also having an intense anti-age effect.”
“This eye cream is really long-lasting, little of the product is enough for one time and the bottle is bigger than those of eye creams usually. Wonderful!”
“I suffer from some redness and sometimes dryness under and around my eyes but this eye contour cream gives me some glow and balance.”Awards Jury
CARE FOR YOUR LASHES
The Eyelash Serum of the Finnish brand Finlash was awarded the title of Best Lash Care. Formulated with ingredients such as betaine and hydrolyzed rice protein, this lash serum strengthens the lashes while simultaneously providing nutrition and moisture. It’s tested by ophthalmologists and made specifically for daily use. The oil-free formula makes it suitable for eyelash extensions as well. Not only is this product well made in terms of formulation, but the betaine is also derived from sugar beets as a by-product of the sugar industry.
“Our Eyelash Serum moisturizes and nourishes eyelashes and eyebrows. It prevents lashes and eyebrows from becoming brittle and broken and makes lashes look longer. It has also been awarded the Finnish Key Label, which guarantees local Finnish work.”
“It feels fresh to apply before I go to bed, and it does not irritate my eyes in any way.”
“Lovely, innovative product that supports these light Nordic lashes of mine.”Awards Jury
MOISTURE, CARE, AND EVEN LIGHT TINT FOR YOUR LIPS
Flora – 100% Natural Lip Balm With Plant Pigment of the Norwegian brand Englegård was awarded the title of Best Lip Balm. Based on organic ingredients, such as organic oils, pure mango butter, plant pigment, and vitamin E, this lip balm protects and nourishes the lips. It has no added perfume nor artificial colours or additives. The tint in the lip balm comes from red beets.
“At Englegård, we have a holistic approach to skincare, and we believe everything is connected. Englegård’s ethos is all about formulating close to and in harmony with nature. This includes growing and harvesting our own herbs in the garden of Englegård. Ancient knowledge about herbs is brought to life through our formulations.”
“I got so many compliments while using this lip balm! It has a little tint of color that looks so natural and beautiful. The look of the lip balm is so cool too.”
“I love the hint of color and have used it a lot under my lip gloss, as a more natural lipstick.”Awards Jury
GET READY FOR THE DAY (AND EVENING)
Mineral Makeup Powder of the Finnish brand Lavia Cosmetics was awarded the title of Best Makeup. Formulated with 100% natural ingredients, this mineral makeup powder is developed to meet the needs and high standards of beauty professionals, makeup artists, as well as consumers. Beautiful makeup and a more chemical-free lifestyle can absolutely go hand-in-hand.
“Our mineral makeup series is suitable for everyone that appreciates pure and natural raw materials as well as a professional result; makeup that stays on the skin all day and covers a wide variety of skin imperfections.”
“I love this in many ways. I’m just normally a sucker for dewy, wet makeup, instead of powdery makeup, but this covers extremely well, dark circles, skin imperfections, pimples, and everything. It really is an all-in-one product, no need to use concealer before or setting powder after. You just swipe it on.”
“A wonderful natural makeup, and perfect for those times when you want a natural look.”Awards Jury
