That’s it. The summer is over. Just like that, the sun has gone, the rain is here and we’re left with rapidly fading brown bits. Yesterday we were all too hot and today we’re digging out our umbrellas. So, it’s a perfect time to reboost our post-summer dehydrated skin and I’m going to prove to you that there’s no better skincare brand than Willow Organic Beauty to do the job for us.
I first reviewed Willow Organic during last year’s ski trip. I found that their porcelain face mask was an absolute winner for locking in all that moisture lost in the alps, while also repairing cells damaged by the strong sun. Unsurprisingly, I was a keen-bean to review more of the range when offered.
A bit of background for you first though. Sue Stowell founded Willow Organic 7 years ago. Eleven years previously she had made the big move from the London city smoke to the idyllic New Forest. Surrounded by beautiful countryside she gave up her interior design work and, while creating her own 100% organic garden in Lymington, spotted a gap in the market for a genuinely organic yet luxurious beauty line. And Willow Organic Beauty was born.
Her crucial ingredient in each of the products is Barbary Fig oil, one of the world’s most expensive oils. Used by the Berber women to protect their skins, this precious oil is packed with antioxidants, the essential fatty acid linoleic and more than twice the vitamin E of argan oil. It’s a true beauty-enhancing elixir which really DOES slow down the ageing of the skin.
To recap, these products are 100% natural & organic as well as anti-ageing. What more could you ask? (…apart from the rain to stop).
I reviewed Refreshing Cleansing Balm 120ml £38, Hydrating Moisturiser 50ml £52 and Hydrating Super Gel Mask 50ml £48.
