My Thoughts On Luxe Botanics
It’s been a while since I’ve talked about skin care, so thought it would be the perfect time to introduce you all to Luxe Botanics… my go-to skincare line over the last few months!
Sourced by biotechnologist, global ingredient hunter + founder, Jene Roestorf— who has meticulously researched the most skin-transforming active botanicals, centering elixirs on three overachieving multitaskers that mimics, balances + protects the skin’s natural microbiome:
✧Marula nut oil, from Kenya
✧Camu camu berry extract, from Brazil &
✧Kigelia africana fruit extract from Malawi
Luxe Botanics focuses on sourcing only the highest grade, nutrient dense, organic + wild harvested core botanicals through fairtrade alliances to support local communities, while safeguarding the environment.
Oh, and their entire line is:
♡ Animal friendly &
♡ Free from all that #nontoxic ugly stuff
Pretty cool hey?
Rooted from three extraordinary core botanical ingredients — Marula Oil from Kenya, Camu Camu berry from Brazil, and Kigelia Africana from Malawi, the range harnesses the nutrients from these ingredients to help nourish, brighten and clarify skin. I immediately fell in love with both of the cleansers and I do believe that the Luxe Botanics Marula Hydrating Pre-Cleaser and the Camu Brightening Cleanser are wonderful on their own, but combined they leave the skin beautifully soft and nourished, making it a fantastic cleansing duo.
The Luxe Botanics Marula Hydrating Pre Cleanser is your typical first oil cleanse. Used to remove makeup and the day’s dirt and grime without stripping or irritating the skin. The Camu Brightening Cleanser works as a wonderful second or morning cleanse and is of a cream cleanser consistency.

What I love about these two cleanser offerings is that they work so well their own but the are even better together. The Marula Hydrating Pre-Cleanser is a real treat to remove makeup without stripping or irritating the skin and the Camu Brightening Cleanser complements the Pre Cleanser so well as it works to clean the skin and give it a beautiful glow. Both cleansers work fantastic on their own or with other cleansers, with the Marula Pre Cleanser working as a fantastic first cleanse, prepping the skin for any additional cleanser. The Camu Brightening Cleanser can work as a real treat to start the day with its beautiful refreshing scent or as a creamy, nourishing second cleanse in the evening.
