Love it: all new, all good Bestow Beauty Powder


When people ask me to name one beauty product that will nourish and transform their skin, 9 times out of 10 I will direct them to a bottle of Bestow Beauty Oil. One of my favourite beauty discoveries ever, it is rich in nutrients, makes a dramatic difference to my skin and – importantly – is easy to add to almost any meal at any point in your day.
So, I was pretty damn excited when I heard that Bestow’s creator Janine was working on another product, and even more so when it hit my desk!
The new little marvel is Bestow Beauty Powder, which she describes as “a delicious, beautifying blend of nutrient-rich plants, designed to bestow health and radiance to your skin.” Like Bestow Beauty Oil, it’s an edible cosmetic, packed full of minerals, vitamins and amino acids, all of which are beneficial for skin, body, hair and nails.
The super-nourishing blend of flaxseed fibre, kelp, spirulina, wheatgrass, alfalfa, coconut, blackcurrant extract and pumpkin flour is highly nutritious, leaving skin feeling incredible, and with a mild, slightly sweet flavour, it tastes as beautiful as your skin will look and feel.
I’ve been using it for a few weeks now in conjunction with its sister oil, and so far I’m really impressed.  Alone it provides a source of all of the nutritional building blocks your body needs to produce good quality collagen and elastin - your skin’s natural, anti-ageing fibres – and when combined with Bestow Beauty Oil it can also help support the protective film of the skin. This is great during winter when harsh conditions can really dry out your skin, especially when you are as eczema prone as I am. As a bonus, the vitamins, minerals and amino acids in Bestow Beauty Powder are also beneficial for the growth, maintenance and repair of your hair and nails.
I’ve even been using it on my three-year-old son Wolf’s cereal – he already loves the oil – to help with his dry, delicate skin, and he hasn’t turned it down yet!
It’s also super versatile, try blending it with smoothies, juice or yoghurt, or sprinkle lightly on other foods such as cereals, porridge, stir-fries or soups. It’s also apparently delicious added to baking such as cakes, loaves or savoury muffins, which I’ve yet to try.
Too easy huh? And so good!

  1. Hey, I just tried this too. I don't use the Oil as I find that Waihi Bush flaxseed works perfectly for me. And I've used LSA in the past (on my cereal, which I love), but was intrigued by the addition of spirulina and kelp. I must say I'm really impressed and will definitely purchase.
