This post is NOT sponsored, and the products mentioned in this post was bought by my own hard-earned money. I simply want to recommend this amazing product I stumbled across by accident.
When I was in Cambridge in January I was suddenly without a day cream for my face. Major crisis. Especially as the water in the UK is full of bad stuff that really messes up my skin.
After I started using good organic products my skin has seen an enormous improvement. Byebye impurities!
I knew I had to find a good organic one. I'm not stupid, and I am not easily fooled by the label "organic". I'm pretty picky when it comes to ingredients, and I especially tend to stay away from moisturisers with coconut as it really clogs my pores.
In a small, pretty alternative organic shop in Cambridge I stumbled across Essential Care.
They're based in Suffolk, England and are a small family team, headed by Margaret, Colin and Abi. Their formulae and products are still hand-made by Margaret, which is so sweet! They state that they are "on a mission to make the purest skincare on earth" and oh boy, they are really on the right track, if not there already.
I originally bought the "Organic repair lotion", which isn't really a moisturiser, but it had to do. I was surprised as it was a great product for my sensitive skin, and the ingredient list was amazing.
2 weeks ago I bought their Organic Avocado Replenishing cream and it's amazing!
The Ingredients: aloe vera juice*, filtered water, cold-pressed avocado oil*, extra virgin olive oil*, shea butter*, rosemary extract*, nettle extract*, cetearyl alcohol (plant origin), cetearyl glucoside (plant origin), levulinic acid & sodium levulinate & glycerine (plant origin), lavender essential oil*, potassium sorbate, xanthan gum (plant origin), lichen extract, orange essential oil*, frankincense essential oil, bergamot essential oil*, ylang ylang essential oil*, limonene* & linalool* (in the essential oils).
This product is also Soil Association certified, which is a huge plus. It's going to be mayhem when my bottle is empty, and I'm dreading this day. New favourite moisturiser, and definitely one of my best buys in a long time. Worth every pound.
The next product I will try is the facial cleanser, alongside with their make up line! Can't wait.
