Pure Source - Barbados

Featuring Bajan BEAUTY BLOGGER Lucinda Robinson

Our new feature reveals inspiring locals and Pure Source regulars with their top five picks

By Kim Sivyer on 01 Jul, 2017

Lucinda Robinson knows her beauty brands.  Together with make-up artist Heidi Bowen she is one half of the blogging duo Moden Make-up, joining in 2012 a year after it was launched by the founder Heidi.  The blog was set up in a quest to discover the best beauty products and skincare that worked for Caribbean skin, in a Caribbean climate.  Since its launch the hashtag #TeamModen has grown to be a go-to ‘heads-up’ on product releases, providing reviews and advice on the best way to use products as well as one-on-one make-up application.

Lucinda started to take a keen interest in more natural skincare mid-2013 whilst looking for the best way to correct her post-acne hyper-pigmentation. As her knowledge of ingredients increased, she further sought out alternative green beauty solutions.  This led her to Pure Source and her experience of shopping in the store has not only helped with her past skin problems but has also helped her to rediscover her love for aromatherapy. 

Here are her top five favourites:

RMS BEAUTY Lip & Skin Balm in Simply Vanilla - With its soft vanilla scent this balm penetrates the lips quickly, so it's perfect for use under drying lip products.  The balm leaves no colour behind so it's perfectly fine to use on other parts of the body such as the cuticles.

TATA HARPER Resurfacing Mask - This line is for those of us that are serious about skincare and are ingredient fanatics.  This mask can be used alone or put directly over your cleanser.

SCHMIDT'S Bergamot + Lime Natural Stick Deodorant - I love this scent!  Natural deodorants are aluminum-free and this one is made with baking soda and nourishing ingredients to help absorb wetness.

REN Micro Polish Cleanser - A gentle, yet effective skin polisher which although doesn’t lather a lot you certainly feel your skin is thoroughly cleansed after use.

THIS WORKS Sleep + Pillow Spray - I don't have trouble falling asleep; staying asleep is another matter. Using these products has "conditioned" my brain to recognise that when this scent is present, it's time for bed.
