Harness the Beauty of Plums

From nourishing recipes to natural makeup products, this delicious fruit is our winter favourite

We’re well and truly caught up in the throes of winter, so we thought we’d dive straight in and chat about one of our go-to seasonal fruits: plums! Oval or round, this fleshy fruit of the rose family features around 2000 varieties from deep purple and red to yellow. Not only do plums create the perfect lip shade but they’re also filled with more health and beauty benefits than we know. Packed with plenty of skin and body-loving nutrients, plums contain around 3-6 times the anthocyanin antioxidant content of blueberries which assist in fighting free radicals and minimising fine lines and wrinkles. They’re also a rich source of dietary fibre, which helps flush out toxins to create clearer looking skin and an improved digestive system. TIP: Try to opt for the organic variety where possible to soak up all of the goodness that plums have to offer. Since the colder weather is the perfect opportunity to cosy up with comforting winter recipes, we wanted to share one of our favourite desserts – The Antioxidant Plum Cake. We've paired this sweet yet refreshing dessert with one of our new lip colours for the seasons ahead, Cherry Plum Lip Nourish, so you can look great and eat well all winter long!  

The mouth-watering pigmented formula preps your pout for ongoing nourishment and protection with an effortless glide, while moisturising your lips and imparting a gorgeous deep berry hue. Free of chemicals, toxins and †˜can’t-pronounce-ingredients’ †” this lippy is antioxidant-rich and beautifully hydrating. As winter brings with it an increase in heating, air conditioning and chilly winds, there’s no doubt that the lips can cop quite the beating. Thankfully we’ve got 12 Lip Nourish lipsticks to choose from that will help protect from the wintry elements, with an incredibly soft, soothing texture and lots of omega 3+6 essential fatty acids to keep lips smoother, tastier and decidedly more beautiful and sumptuous. Our range is living proof of the power of Mother Nature when it comes to getting the perfect shade and the perfect nutrition for your body inside out, and outside in. Just don’t forget to rug up…. Brrrrrr!
