In a new blog series (and hopefully corresponding Youtube videos!) we are going to discuss each of the products in our range.
First up is the 'funkiest, freshest means of removing your makeup': Lime & Coconut Cleansing Water!
Melanie wanted to develop a product that was just as 'easy' and convenient to use as cleansing wipes, but a lot kinder for your skin (not to mention far more environmentally friendly!).
Along with some cotton pads, this is the ideal product to chuck in your gym bag for a pre/post gym freshen up - actress Susie Amy is a fan of the cleansing water for this!
Similar in idea to a micellar water (whereby oil particles - in this case, coconut - are suspended in water), our cleansing water easily cuts through makeup, dirt and grime (we're not suggesting any of our customers live in coal pits; cities can be dirty places!), without stripping your skin of it's natural oils as conventional soaps/cleansers can.
And although this is called a cleansing water, this relates to the product type, not the fact that water needs to be involved in the process - no rinsing is required! (In fact, cleansing/micellar waters are very popular in France, as it's said that French women NEVER use tap water on their facial skin).
As with all our products, we wanted to keep the ingredients we used as simple, natural and effective as possible.
We chose orange floral water as it helps protect and prevent dry skin by encouraging circulation, and coconut oil as it is lovely and light, and soothes the skin without blocking pores. Lime essential oil was selected (not just because it makes this cleanser smell like a cocktail and good enough to eat!) as it is a natural disinfectant, and the scent is useful against depression and anxiety.
We're slightly biased, but Lime & Coconut Cleansing Water is definitely one of our favourites - have you tried it yet?
