I was recently sent some products from the new Willow Organic Barbary Fig Miracle range. I've been trying them for a few weeks now.
Sue Stowell, founder of Willow Organic Beauty previously worked as a creative interior designer. The spa she was working with at the time asked her to source organic luxury beauty products. She couldn't find anything suitable so decided to create her own brand.
She teamed up with cosmetic chemists, herbalists and aromatherapists to develop a luxury organic range (the bath oils are pretty special too). No animal testing, no parabens, SLS or mineral oils. The products are Soil Association Certified.
The Barbary Fig Miracle range is the latest launch which combines the most up-to-date technology with powerful organic ingredients. 1000 kilos of Barbary Fig fruit creates 1 litre of oil which is packed with anti-oxidants and twice the Vitamin E of Argan Oil.
I was sent Gentle Cleansing Balm* (£38 - 120ml), Deeply Hydrating Toner* (£24 - 50ml), Super Firming Serum* (£80 - 20ml), Hydrating Moisturiser* (£52 - 50ml) and Luxury Conditioning Lip Balm* (£24).
Packaging is luxurious, the products are effective, a real luxury and are a joy to use.
Gentle Cleaning Balm* - a light and easily absorbed cleansing balm which contains Barbary Fig oil, comfrey and marigold. It deeply cleanses the skin and removes all make up including waterproof mascara. It smells fruity and is suitable for normal, dry and mature skin types. Massage onto dry skin and remove with a warmed damp muslin cloth. Leaves the skin soft, refreshed and clean. Really lovely to use, this is one of my favourites.
Deeply Hydrating Toner* - a concentrated gel formula which hydrates the skin. Formulated with Barbary Fig oil, chickweed, comfrey and marigold to refine, calm and lightly moisturise the skin. Leaves the skin refreshed. Apply to the skin using damp cotton wool and smooth over the skin to remove any last traces of cleanser. Suitable for normal, dry and mature skin types.
Super Firming Serum* - contains natural enzymes, Barbary Fig oil, Rosehip oil, and almond and aloe vera essences. It helps to smooth, restore, replenish and firm the skin as well as reducing fine lines. You can feel it instantly firming and tightening the skin on application. Massage gently into the face and neck. I love this!
Hydrating Moisturiser* - a light and nourishing moisturiser which contains Barbary Fig oil, rose, orange, thyme and marigold to soothe, protect and hydrate. It leaves the skin radiant and restored. Sutable for all skin types. Use after the serum.
Luxury Conditioning Lip Balm* - a rich and highly concentrated balm which is scented with orange. It also includes comfrey, Barbary Fig oil, Vitamin E and antioxidants. Plumps up the lips and protects leaving the lips glossy and conditioned. Apply as often as needed. This is a real luxe lip balm and would be great to gift.
