12 crystal beauty products to add magic to your make-up bag

With holistic lifestyles on the rise, the craze for crystals has spread to the beauty industry…

Crystals have been revered for their healing properties for centuries, but until recently they were something you would only expect to find in a quirky spiritual shop alongside tarot cards and incense. 

As well as holding, wearing or healing with these mystic stones, you can now incorporate them into your beauty regime as pure gem extracts are increasingly being used to add enchanting energy to everyday cosmetic creations.

From rose quartz to malachite, the potent properties are now ingrained in products designed to utilise their unique energies. And a wide range of products spanning everything from face masks to crystal combs use these stones for a serious hit of skin amplifying oompf, without a palm reading in sight.

Check out our top twelve crystal infused beauty buys below…

Glossier Haloscope in Golden Topaz

This dewy highlighter is a serious glow giver thanks to the genuine crystal extracts embedded in the outer ring. The shimmering specks of golden topaz give the skin an ethereal glow and the solid core of rich moisturisers keep your cheeks dewy and intensely hydrated.

Nazan Schnapp Regenerating Gel Cleanser with Amethyst 

With a piece of amethyst in each bottle, this cleanser draws on the precious stone’s powerful properties to remove impurities whilst encouraging balance and rejuvenation. Combined with jasmine floral water to hydrate and bisabolol to counteract damage, this is skin salvation, bottled.
