Geeta at So Pure Skincare contacted me to ask if I'd like to try some of her products. They are 100% natural, cruelty free and hand made in the UK. Free from parabens, silicones, TEA, DEA, phenoxyethanol, mineral oil and all gycols.
Geeta started blending her own products when her children developed eczema. The products worked so well she began blending for friends and family. Wanting to reach a wider market she took a diploma in Holistic Cosmetology and then began developing her range. You can see the full range available here.
Here's what she sent me:
Anti-Ageing Serum sample* (50ml - £40) - this was my least favourite product as I didn't like the scent. It did feel nice on the skin though and is suitable for all skin types. It is packed full of plant oils, Vitamins, Hyaluronic Acid, Omega 3 and contains essential oils of lavender, neroli and rose to regenerate. Apply to the face and neck daily.
Anti-Ageing Nutrient Elixir sample* (10ml roll on - £18, 30ml pump bottle £45) - a luxurious face oil which contains anti-oxidants, omegas and phytonutrients. "It is like a vitamin shot for the skin". Use after the Anti-Ageing Serum or alone at night. Contains cold pressed Tomato Seed Oil which protects all skin types. Helps with cell regeneration, premature ageing, revives the complexion. Softens and hydrates the skin. Essential oils of vanilla, neroli, rose, sandalwood, jasmine and lavender rebalance, tone and regenerate. Apply one pump to face and neck and gently massage into the skin. Again, I wasn't keen on the scent.
Rejuvenating Body Elixir sample* (100ml - £30) a sweetly scented hydrating body oil which is packed full of organic oils and scented with Tiare Flower extract, Neroli, Rose flower extract, Jasmine and Sandalwood. Shake well before use and apply 4-5 pumps to the body concentrating on drier areas.
Activated Charcoal Facial Detox sample* (50g - £20) - this comes as a powder you mix with water and is suitable for oily/combination skin types. It contains activated Charcoal. Ideal for a weekly detox treatment. Helps to keep the skin blemish and shine free. Mix a teaspoon of the powder with a few drops of water to create a paste. Apply to the skin (I've used it on my t-zone) and leave for 15 minutes or so before removing with a warmed wet cloth.
My favourites were the Rejuventating Body Elixir and the Activated Charcoal Facial Detox. Have you tried any So Pure Skincare products?
