Gold Award

Eve St Agnes

Eve of St Agnes, Nourishing Cleansing Cream

“Invigorating, rich cream, cleansing and moisturising – loved the simplicity of packaging” 
“Texture thick but not so thick to drag skin, loved smell of sweet orange – excellent at removing make up – didn’t need to ‘double cleanse’ – delivered more than expected and a luxurious experience” 
“Mascara glided away – really impressed – does not leave skin feeling stripped of natural oils … never thought I’d find a product to touch Liz Earle Natural Cleanser, but I may defect to this!”

TheaThea Age Revival Dream Crème Exfoliator

“Uplifting, mood-enhancing, really liked it … performed brilliantly, only need small amount for really good exfoliation, grains small and smooth and not harsh … perfect” 
“Kind and gentle – I could see a difference almost immediately” 
“Such a pleasure to use – melts into the skin and then rinses straight off – delivered exactly what it promised with no fuss, mess or bother – wonderful value for money because you need to use so little”

 

Silver Award

Botanicals Rose and Camellia Cleansing Melt

“Had heard good things about Botanicals and this lived up to that promise and I would definitely purchase” 

MuLondon Organic Fragrance Free Foaming Face Wash

“Left face feeling cleansed, moist and fresh – not drying at all … easy to use pump dispenser, vegan and animal friendly – I loved it!” 
“Hate it when cleansers leave that stripped, squeaky clean feeling, and this didn’t – good value as very long lasting” 
“Overall a really nice cleanser that I would buy”

Saaf Pure Face Cleanser

“Loved this product, the texture, the smell – and great results – really melted into my skin and you could feel it working” 
“Friends commented that my skin looked brighter” 
“Love the ‘hot cloth’ method of cleansing – nowhere near as harsh as facial exfoliators – really enjoyed and will purchase”

Suti Cleanse Facial Cleansing Balm

“A real treat to use – easy and effective, rich buttery slightly grain texture, melting into skin on contact … uplifting fragrance … all make-up removed effortlessly” 
“Good packaging, clear labelling and instructions, good value for money as a little goes a long way”

A’kin Rose & Geranium Pure Creamy Cleanser & Toner in One

“Leaves skin soft and lovely and never dry – really kind to skin, a lovely product” “The toning action makes skin feel clean and prepped for moisturiser afterwards – would buy as it’s excellent” 
“Very convenient, attractive packaging, easy to use, mess free – can’t fault this product”  

Angela Langford Clean Sweep

“Gorgeous .. thick at first, but almost oil-like once applied to skin, but not greasy – removed all traces of make-up with no effort – love that it’s handmade”
