The go to products of a beauty store owner

posted 2015 Feb by Sabrina J Parr

As the owner of Flora Organica organic beauty store i am lucky enough to have so many amazing products to choose from when it comes to my beauty regime! I am a firm believer in adjusting your skin care regime to fit the season and your changing skin care needs. 

Here are the products i'm currently loving and make up my current beauty regime!


I always use two cleansers - one for morning and one for night.


My skin needs a regular light exfoliation otherwise i start to get breakouts. I have used the Tata Harper Regenerating Cleanser for 2 years and still haven't found a product that i love as much as this one. It uses apricot seed powder and is super gentle.  It is the creme de la creme of exfoliators in my books.


I look for a creamy cleanser to take off my makeup without stripping my skin and that i can use on the eye area as well. The Tata Harper Refreshing Cleanser is a beautiful peachy pink cleanser that feels like silk and doesn't sting my eyes. A bit on the pricey side but like all of the Tata Harper products the formulas are concentrated and you only need to use a small amount so it lasts for ages. For eye makeup i use organic coconut oil followed by the cleanser so i am not left with a greasy residue.


Think of your moisturiser as your skins food and your serum as its vitamins. Morning and night is pretty much the same but because we are in summer i go for lighter products. I always use a serum that is targeted towards any skin concerns i have  which at the moment is focusing on anti aging because i am turning 36 this year and i feel it needs a little extra TLC! 

Morning & Evening

First i will spritz a toner, at the moment i am testing out a sample that was sent to me by a lovely new Australian brand called Flora Remedia (nice name!). After the toner i will apply a serum which at the moment is the Tata Harper Boosted Contouring Serum followed by Human and Kind Anti Aging Mosituriser which has organic acmeila clercea and is said to be a natural botox. It is lovely and light on the skin but still giving me good hydration.

I am not a huge eye cream user but the Human and Kind Moisturiser is designed to be used as an eye cream as well so i'll use an extra dab around the eyes.

I'll also apply a sunscreen in the morning before my makeup.


Once a week i'll use a mask. My skin has been a bit congested at the moment so i'm using the Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask


My hair tends to be thin and dry on the ends so i use Acure Argan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner which is one of the best natural hair ranges i have come across, and at an affordable price. I'm a foam girl, i like to get a lather in my shampoo and Acure delivers it without the nasties.

Once a week i will do a hair treatment using Hairbliss Repair Oil which smells divine!


I absolutely adore Prtty Peaushun Skin Tight Body Lotion as it gives the most gorgeous glow to my skin without looking like a disco ball. It is quick to absorb so it makes the perfect product to slap on in the morning. When i feel like my skin is a little more dry then usual i will use a more substantial moisturiser like the Indah Dreamland Body Butter which uses coconut oil as it's base.

When it comes to deodorant i reach for Lavanilla in Pure Vanilla. I like the solid stick, it keeps me dry and just works for me.

If you have any questions about the products i have mentioned or any on the site please feel free to email me at

If you change just one beauty product in 2015 pick this one!

posted 2015 Jan by Flora Organica

It is hard to know where to start when you are looking at changing over natural skincare and cosmetics. You have all these products you have spent a lot of money on and they probably work really nicely on you (otherwise you wouldn't be using them!)

The problem is most commercial products just aren't good for you. They very very slowly start to flood your system with toxins that your body was never designed to handle and can lead to illness and disease over the long term.

One of the absolute WORST products you can use are ANTIPERSPIRANTS. They have been strongly linked to breast cancer and let's face it, spraying aluminium onto such a sensitive area was never a good idea.

But deodorant also happens to be one of the hardest products to swap over as no one wants to smell bad at any cost.

Enter the new generation of natural deodorants!

I only stock natural deodorants that i have personally tested and found to work though i will say that some work better then others, it's actually a very personal thing!

One thing to remember is that a deodorant will not stop you sweating completely. That is the difference between a deodorant and an antiperspirant.

So invest in a good aluminium free deodorant, it may be a little trial and error that find the right one for you but it is worth it!

Welcome 2015! It's time to ditch the beauty chemicals and go non toxic!

posted 2015 Jan by Flora Organica

As always Flora Organica is all about finding you the absolute best natural & organic skincare brands in the world! Each product is put through a 4 P citeria test:


Does it contain non toxic ingredients? There are a lot of brands that say they are 'natural' but in actual fact only contain one or two 'natural' ingredients. Don't be fooled and shop with retailers you can trust.


Ok this is important. Does it actually do what it says it is going to do? I don't really care about Celebrity endorsements as personally i would like companies to be investing that money into R&D and using the BEST possible ingredients.


What is the company ethos? Are they eco friendly? These give you a lot of insite as to what their products are also about.


Just because it's natural or organic skincare doesn't mean it can't look lovely on your shelf!

As always if you have any questions about what products may be suitable for your skin, or anything really, you can contact us at

The top 3 Natural Products for Sensitive Skin

posted 2014 Nov by Sabrina J Parr

Sensitive and Hypersensitive skin needs a little extra care when choosing beauty products as certain ingredients can cause inflammation and conditions to worsen. Here are my top 3 natural and organic skincare products for sensitive skin! 

1. Acure Probiotic Sensitive Facial Cleanser

This beautiful sensitive facial cleanser contains a soothing blend of Organic Argan Oil, Probiotics, and Pumpkin Seed Oil. Rich in omega fatty acids, this gentle creamy cleanser will have your face feeling fresh, clean, and hydrated. It does not contain synthetic fragrances and is also gluten free.

Shop Acure Probiotic Sensitive Facial Cleanser

2. Acure Probiotic Sensitive Facial Cream

This nourishing natural facial moisturiser contains soothing organic chamomile and rich probiotics help alleviate redness and inflammation while organic argan oil provides superior moisture. 1% Chlorella Growth Factor and Argan Stem Cells provide cellular rejuvenation and collagen support. It is hydrating enough to be used day and night

This delicately scented natural moisturiser has strong regenerative and anti-inflammatory properties. It is also free from alcohol and synthetic fragrances which can trigger conditions such as Rosacea. 

Shop Pai Chamomile and Rosehip Sensitive Facial Cream

The Natural Alternative to Dry Shampoo

posted 2014 Nov by Sabrina J Parr

Dry Shampoo is extremely popular these days but take a look at the label and you would need a chemistry degree to understand what has gone in it. As most dry shampoos come in a spray can you are also more likely to inhale this chemical cocktail which is a BIG NO NO!

Lulu Organics Hair Powder is all organic, TALC-FREE natural dry shampoo hair powder for those in between wash days. This silky powder absorbs oil and leaves hair looking fresh and smelling divine!

To use simply sprinkle a dime size amount of powder into your hands and rub through the roots of your dry hair.

Lulu Organics Hair Powder comes in 2 delicious scents - Lavender and Clary Sage or Jasmin.

The Natural Alternative to Botox

posted 2014 Nov by Sabrina J Parr

Acmella Oleracea extract is considered a natural alternative to Botox, and is extracted from a plant called Acmella Oleracea.

Applied to the skin it reduces muscle tension meaning that if you are using it on wrinkles they soften and relax making them less visible!

In a clinical study, 75% of patients immediately realized the smoothing effect of Acmella Oleracea, noticing results the day after the first application. 

Look for products that contain this natural botox ingredient such as Human and Kind Anti Aging Cream which can be used as an eye cream, wrinkle cream and everyday moisturizer! 


How to Prep Your Skin For Summer

posted 2014 Nov by Sabrina J Parr

With the weather heating up your summer wardrobe is about to come out of hibernation. That is why it is important to start establishing a routine to get your skin smooth and summer ready!


It's time to say bye-bye to the winter fuzz and hello silky smooth legs. I personally go for the easy approach and just shave but a lot of people prefer the longer lasting results of a wax. You can make your own natural hair removal wax with a few simple ingredients.


Exfoliating helps remove dead skin cells, remove ingrown hairs and smooth out the skin. Give your skin a good scrub every few days which will also help reduce toxin build up that can help reduce the appearance of cellulite.


If you want smooth soft skin you have to moisturise. If your skin needs a little love after the harsh affects of winter go for something super nourishing like Acure Ultra Hydrating Body Lotion. If you are concerned about cellulite look for a targeted treatment body lotion like Acure Firming Body Lotion or Prtty Peaushun Skin Tight Body Lotion.


Nothing says summer like a golden glow! Opt for a natural fake tan that will moisturise your skin at the same time. My favorite brand is Eco Tan.

6 Ways to Naturally Protect Your Hair From the Sun

posted 2014 Oct by Sabrina J Parr

I got back from Bali a week ago and my hair was absolutely fried! We have become used to being so diligent at protecting our skin from the harmful effects of the sun but we most often forget about our poor hair!!

I stumbled across a brilliant little article at Urban Bush Babes of 5 natural ways to protect your hair from the sun. Here is the low down:

Moisture, Moisture and Moisture

 The sun breaks down the hair’s protein (Keratin) therefore keeping hair well moisturized and placing conditioner in your hair without rinsing it out or a leave in will keep damage at a minimum or at a bay. Go for a leave in conditioner such as Acure Argan Oil Leave in Conditioner

Hats Galore

By wearing hats when you plan to be out and about or lounging for long extended periods of time in the sun can be a great vice to combat the sun especially wide-brim hats which would provide a full coverage of protection.

UV Protection

The golden ticket to prevent oxidation is to assimilate a barrier of protection therefore the same sunscreen you use to protect your skin can also be used as protection for your strands. I would recommend using an SPF of 25 and diluting the UV protection with water. An easy travel tip is to mix 3 teaspoons of UV protection with a cup and a ½ of water and place in a spray bottle and shake. This way if you need to reapply the water bottle comes in handy.

I just started stocking a range of natural sunscreens but for this tip i would suggest Eco Tan Natural Coconut Sunscreen as it has a gorgeous coconut smell that will have your locks smelling lush!

Stay away from Peroxide, alcohol and lemon based products

 Peroxide, alcohol and lemon based products will cause your strands to dry out at a much faster rate and trigger or aid in the oxidation of your strands at higher levels.

Updo or Wrap it Up

 Protecting those strands by wearing a headwrap or updo style such as a bun can prevent major damage from the sun. Remember the ends of your hair are the oldest and weakest part of your strand which are more susceptible to the process of oxidation so don’t give the sun and excuse tuck your hair away.

Get an awesome organic hair repair oil or mask

Don't forget to give your hair some extra love when you come home from holidays with a leave in hair mask. I'm currently loving Hairbliss Organic Repair Hair Oil which i would recommend you leave on for at least 1 hour to really get those locks hydrated!

4 ways Probiotics can improve your skin

posted 2014 Oct by Sabrina J Parr

1. Smooth Dry Skin

Look for probiotics in a cream such as Acure Argan Oil + Probiotic Sensitive Skin Cream to give the active cultures a full 8 hours to do their dirty work.The probiotic technology helps your skin retain the moisture it has while natural moisturising ingredients feed your skin restorative antioxidants that combat fine lines and wrinkles.

2. Minimize redness or rosacea

Facial redness is caused by inflammation, which makes your blood vessels visible at the skin's surface. Products with probiotics such as Acure Sensitive Facial Cleanser with Argan Oil + Probiotics can calm, soothe, and strengthen the skin's barrier to lessen redness over time. 

3. Fix fine lines and dullness

Probiotics  can stimulate your skin to produce its own anti-aging ingredients—including collagen, hyaluronic acid, and antioxidants

4. Calm stressed-out skin

Probiotics boost your skin's natural defenses against environmental damage while calming down seriously stressed skin

Probiotic Supplements

Taking a supplement is another great way of getting the benefits of Probiotics. I highly recommend Glow Inner Beauty Powder from The Beauty Chef as it is a natural blend of fermented superfoods and choc full of skin loving probiotics.



5 Things i'm loving right a discount code!

Save 10% off my favorite flora organica stocked products mentioned in this post with the codeword myfave5 till the 8th November!

Hairbliss Repair Oil

I can't stop raving about this product! I tend to have oily roots and dry ends, i'm also very impatient in the shower so i never really leave a hair mask on for long enough to really do me any good. What i love about Hairbliss Repair Oil is you pop it on dry hair, leave for 30 minutes and then take your shower and wash it out! It really leaves the hair feeling soft and smelling like a day spa.

I had the pleasure of meeting the lovely Melissa a few years back. I have watched her site flourish over the last 2 years and can honestly say she really is the real deal. She has great advice on everything from eating well to creating a life you love. She recently released an online program that will help you achieve just that. She has lots of lovely freebies like meditation mp3 and recipes. Check out her site at Melissa Ambrosini  

Eco Tan Coconut Natural Sunscreen

With summer well and truly on the way it's time to invest in a good natural SPF! I say it over and over again you should absolutely wear an SPF on your face everyday to reduce the signs of premature aging. Eco Tan has just released their Coconut Natural Sunscreen and i'm slightly obsessed with it. It has a slight tint so goes on skin toned rather than white, isn't greasy so it won't clog your pores and smells tropical divine.

Alkaline Water

Doesn't matter if you are using amazing skincare products, if you want glowing radiant skin you need to be HYDRATED! I always go for an Alkaline water as it helps to balance your body’s pH and is a great source of antioxidants. It can literally take years off your face if drunk regularly and will make your skin bright and sparkly.

I recently bought a eobud alkaline water jug that filters the water and makes it alkaline so i can reduce the amount of plastic waste i generate.

Natural Toothpastes (that taste good!)

I had recently bought a toothpaste at the supermarket as it was advertised as 'natural'. It was only later that i realized that it had SLS in it (as they have two versions, one with and one without)!!! So i decided  to find a brand that i liked that was SLS and paraben free and tasted good! Dr Organic Toothpastes are just that in 2 flavors, aloe vera whitening toothepaste or pomegranate healthy gums toothpaste. There is also an aloe vera mouth wash as well which is great and all are now stocked at!




The aussie made 100% organic hair treatment you have to try!

posted 2014 Oct by Sabrina J Parr

It is exciting to see so many new up and coming Australian natural beauty brands making incredible products! A came across a wonderful little brand called Bliss Co on Instagram and after i read all the rave reviews i just had to try it myself.

I got in touch with the gorgeous Emily-Rose (even her name is gorgeous) and got to talking to her about her little company and the products she makes. A whole lot of dedication and love had gone into them!

So i tested the Hairbliss Repair Oil and was so impressed i had to have it in my store! Here are the reasons i loved it!

1) You put it on BEFORE you get in the shower! Saves so much time in the shower!

2) It smells ssssoooooooo good. It's like giving yourself a floral/herbal spa treatment in your own home

3) My hair felt incredible afterwards. I know it repaired my hair as the next day when i woke up my hair was straight and soft as opposed to the usual birds nest i have.
