Edible Beauty No.4 + Tinted Vanilla Silk Hydrating Lotion Review (and a discount)


Edible Beauty is an Australian skincare brand based on the philosophy that what you put on your skin should be good enough to eat. Edible Beauty products contain only the highest grade plant-based ingredients, both certified organic and from wildcrafted sources.

The skin is our largest organ, and 70% of what we put on our skin is absorbed directly into the bloodstream. The brand was developed by naturopath and nutritionist Anna Mitsios.

Edible Beauty Australia offer edible skin care products, herbal beauty elixirs and wild-crafted exotic teas containing evidence-based therapeutic botanicals designed to have you glowing both inside and out. Anna is passionate about using nutrition through food and herbs to achieve radiance, vitality and bountiful youth. It is one of my favourite skincare lines for the consistently beautiful products that are not only 100% natural, but also highly effective.

Edible Beauty is also cruelty-free and vegan.

Edible Beauty No.4 + Tinted Vanilla Silk Hydrating Lotion

The Vanilla Silk Hydrating Lotion is the most luscious, silky texture. It is beautifully light on the skin and absorbs quickly, leaving my complexion feeling hydrated and supple.

The No.4 + Tinted Vanilla Silk Hydrating Lotion is the same formula as the untinted version (which I've used in the past), just with the inclusion of a mineral tint. This moisturiser isn't designed to give you coverage (and isn't a makeup substitute), but rather a subtle sun-kissed glow. The tint is just enough to add a little touch of colour to my skin (so you do look sun-kissed, but not tanned - it's almost invisible) and absorbs fully. You don't need to worry about colour coming off your face throughout the day.

I use this in the morning paired with an oil, or when using the untinted version, you can use it both morning and night. It wears beautifully under makeup, really hydrating the skin to ensure a smooth application. There is no icky feeling or greasy residue with any of the Edible Beauty products, something that I used to have a lot of trouble with prior to discovering Edible Beauty.

Two or three pumps is sufficient for my face and decollete, and I also notice an improvement in the lines on my neck (which appear whenever I neglect that area) and plumpness of the skin when using this daily.

The Vanilla Silk Hydrating Lotion contains -

  • Australian Rosella Extract, known as the “botox” plant, thanks to its natural source of alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA’s) which helps to speed up cell turnover, increase moisture and flexibility and encourage fresh, younger looking skin.

  • Black Raspberry contains a natural SPF and is loaded with the powerful anti-inflammatory resveratrol, which protects the skin against inflammation. The antioxidant function of these stem cells extends skin cell longevity by repairing DNA damage and preventing internal and external oxidation.

  • Lemon Aspen which contains flavone glycosides, strong antioxidants which help combat the free radicals that damage the skin. It strengthens capillaries, helps to increase collagen production and improves skin texture.

I absolutely love this entire line, and if you are looking for a beautiful moisturiser to use morning or night, with or without makeup, then you really can't go past this one. It really is great product for all ages and skin types.
