Feb 3, Belle About Town Cleansing Oil Feature

Belle About Town Cleansing Oil Feature

Aamina has done a pretty comprehensive review here revolving around all things face cleansing. As noted, there a many skin cleansing products that can be used these days all having their pros and cons and of course you can pay a small fortune if you want to.

Our Rice Bran & Borage Seed Cleansing Oil is noted for just the things we want it to be noted for ie. “…to clean your face and revive dry and tired skin.” It does what it’s supposed to do and while being particularly good for sensitive (often dry) skin.

We agree that the best way to use is with a cloth or cotton pad, particularly when removing make-up.

Jan 25, My Family Ties Cleansing Oil Review

My Family Ties Cleansing Oil Review

We’ve been getting some great reviews for our Cleaning Oil over the past couple of months, and this one from Caroline at My Family Ties must be one of the most considered and it’s all very good news !

As other reviewers have now noticed, our Cleansing Oil is best used with a cotton pad for heavier make-up removal, because it’s a gentle cleanser with 100% natural carrier oils. We also appreciate Caroline’s notes that this oil does a great job of general moisturising as well.

Melanie’s Fab Finds

Melanie prides herself on being an honest blogger and we therefore really appreciate her honest opinion of our Forever Rose moisturiser “…effective in improving skin tone and is also great at healing blemishes and scratches.” This is what a good face moisturiser is all about, being effective. And on top of that our Forever Rose moisturiser that Melanie has reviewed also has the beautiful fragrance of Bulgarian Damascena Roses.

Does it get any better ??

Kate Emma Loves Review

We’re quoting again, but that’s because we getting some really great comments for our products, this time from Kate Emma Loves; “…leaves the skin feeling really soft and supple and hasn’t broke me out so it’s a winner in my eyes.”

Kate Emma has noticed the fragrance of our Cleansing Oil which is actually from the Plum Kernel oils that we use – it’s not that overpowering but very attractive and complimented by the Rice Bran oils to give a very high quality 100% natural gentle cleanser.

Smell of Peony Forever Rose Cleanser Review

And we’re delighted with this review ! Our Cleanser is a perfect match for Judita’s skin type and we’re really pleased that she’s again noted the quality of the packaging which we think reflects the quality of our products.

We’re quite proud of our Forever Rose range and this review confirms that we’re on the right track !

Smell of Peony Moisturiser Review

It’s very good when people are paying attention to what you’re doing in different countries. Judita is a blogger based in Germany and she’s looked at two of our products; the first here is our Hydrating Face Moisturiser.

We like this review a lot. Although this particular moisturiser doesn’t suit Judita’s skin type she can see that we’ve offered a quality product and that this particular product is suitable for dryer skin (it is in our Hydrating range !) It didn’t agree with Judita and we like the honesty, but we do know that her friend really likes it.

Jan 14, Sara Steel Blogger Review

Sara Steel Blogger Review

This is a lovely review from Sarah and for two of our favourite products. Interestingly, she hits the nail on the head regarding the Chamomile Toner fragrance ! Our products are either fragranced with 100% natural essential oils or they are not fragranced at all. This is the case with our sensitive range and in particular for our pure flower water toners. Chamomile is a great flower water for the skin and it smells like …Chamomile ! Because most skincare products are deliberately fragranced, often when there is no real need, the true scent in masked. Chamomile has a natural herbal fragrance, not common, but quite pleasant.

We should take nature at face value and not expect everything to fragranced to death !

She Might Be Loved

Georgina is a very popular and award winning blogger who is attracting a lot of media attention. We’re delighted she agreed to take a look at our Cleansing Oil as a part of her winter skincare blog last week and we’re very pleased that she liked it.

As Georgina discovered, our Cleanser is gentle and so removing make up with a cotton pad is recommended. That said “…I usually use this on no makeup days to leave my skin feeling extra soft and loved“. We’ll take that !

Jan 7, Sujet de Vert Forever Rose Mask Review

Sujet de Vert Forever Rose Mask Review

Our (pre-mixed) face masks were new to our range late last year and we’re delighted that the Intense Rejuvination Pink Clay mask has been picked from our range, trialled and then given a great review by Shubana at Sujet de Vert.

We agree with Shubana that most of the masks we have tried from the established brands are usually either too runny or they dry out and crack when applied. We’ve resolved this with a mask that combines the best cleansing and rejuvenating properties of Pink Clay and also moisturises and tones the skin.

The only thing we think Shubana has missed is that this mask has the beautiful fragrance that comes with our Forever Rose range !

Jan 6, Slick Mummy Review

Slick Mummy Review

“…we can’t wait to try some of the other products in the range…” concluded Slick Mummy after reviewing our Rice Bran & Borage Cleansing Oil. This is because our Cleansing Oil leaves the skin feeling moisturised and refreshed, without the greasy feel that comes with some heavier or non-natural cleansers. Removing make-up is only half the job – the skin should feel enlivened and moisturised afterwards as well >

Jan 5, Fashions Finest Review

Fashions Finest Review

“… a great product and worth every penny…” Excellent review from Fashions Finest for our Cleansing Oil. Using a Cleansing Oil isn’t a part of many people’s daily skincare routine, but Deborah notes here how beneficial it was for her and how easy it became a part of her routine.

We would completely agree that for a 100% natural product, our Rice Bran & Borage Cleansing Oil is excellent value for money at £14.25. Pay 3 or 4 times this for other “high end” brands, but we really don’t believe the product will be any better !
