Keep Calm And Carry On With These Lavender-Infused Beauty Products

Treat your skin and hair with the amazing benefits of lavender

Lavender is a plant that needs no further introduction. Known for its aromatic scent and soothing properties, you can often find it infused as a key ingredient in your beauty products or even food. Beyond its delightful floral scent, lavender is often used to treat and target hair and skin problems. Here are seven lavender-infused beauty products for you to pamper yourself with.

#1: Percy & Reed Perfectly Perfecting Wonder Cleanse & Nourish, $40 for 250ml, Sephora
Formulated to clean, condition and nourish your hair, you can now streamline your hair care routine to just one product. It is also suited for those with sensitive scalps as it is made with 97 per cent natural ingredients and is detergent- and sulphate-free. The delicate lavender and rose geranium and peppermint essential oils infused in it help to nourish your hair. While the non-foaming formula may take some getting used to, it is the very same formula that will leave your hair feeling soft and strengthened. #2: Pixi Glow Mist, $30 for 80ml, Sephora
Use this mist to set your makeup and get a natural glow without looking greasy, or to give your skin a hydration boost at any time of the day. Its slim and compact packaging makes it easy for those who are constantly on the go to stay fresh and radiant. The lavender oils infused in it helps to calm and soothe your skin. Along with propolis extract and rose flower oil, these essential oils work together to give your complexion its daily hydration and nutrient boost. #3: Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil, $55 for 175ml
Getting enough shut-eye may be the key to flawless skin, but it is not every day that you can get the recommended eight hours of beauty sleep. That’s where this lavender-infused cleansing oil is a lifesaver. Perfect for those nights where your skin is not getting enough rest, the key ingredients consisting of lavender essential oil, evening primrose oil and squalene thoroughly remove impurities and prep your skin for regeneration and repair before bedtime. The result? Smooth and hydrated skin by morning. #4: Fresh Creme Ancienne Infusion, $148 for 125ml
Suffering from dull skin? The all-natural lavender flower water in this toner serves to provide your skin with the hydration it needs to stay firm, vibrant and youthful. With the blend of botanical oils and waters, it is able to seal in moisture effectively. Some other ingredients include rosewater for its cooling properties and lemon peel oil that controls sebum. All these ingredients deliver the nourishment for a more balanced and healthier-looking complexion. #5: L’Oreal Paris Botanicals Fresh Care Lavender Range
Formulated with organic lavender essential oils sourced from France, this hair care range is suitable for all hair types. All products are free from silicones, colourants or parabens – common ingredients in hair products that will damage your hair. And not to mention the highlight of this range – lavender. The natural anti-inflammatory properties of lavender make this range suited for even the most sensitive scalps. This hair care range includes a pre-shampoo oil ($23.90 for 150ml), shampoo ($17.90 for 400ml), conditioner ($15.90 for 200 ml) and hair mask ($19.90 for 200ml) for you to get nice smelling and luscious hair. #6: Crabtree and Evelyn Lavender & Espresso Body Lotion, $36 for 250ml
Give your body some pre-bedtime pampering with this lotion. The lavender scent in this body lotion has a woody undertone to it and is combined with coffee oils to form a unique blend that will leave your skin feeling smooth and well-rested. Coupled with moringa, rosehip and evening primrose oils, it is formulated to restore balance and tranquility to your skin. Suitable for day and night use, it effectively locks down moisture to maintain your skin’s suppleness. #7: Fresh Umbrian Clay Purifying Mask, $35 for 30ml, $88 for 100ml
Thanks to the lavender extracts and chamomile water, this mask is able to mattify your skin without drying it out. And talk about great value for money – this mask can be used in three different ways – as a deep cleanser, a mask or for spot treatment. Made with rare Umbrian clay and can only be found tucked away on top of a hill in central Italy, this mask will cleanse, purify and remove impurities for a clearer complexion. The smooth and creamy formula also contains minerals like quartz and alkaline salt, which are calming and can be easily absorbed by your skin.
