A natural skincare brand, The Zesty Soap Company, recently sent me some goodies to try out. As I’m trying to integrate more natural products into my routine, this beautifully scented little parcel was very timely! I would like to share my thoughts on these three products with you.
Mandarin Hand Balm
This smells as beautiful as its name suggests! The scent is not overpowering and absolutely delicious; highly reminiscent of Italian mandarins. The balm is of a light, non-greasy texture and absorbs straight into the skin, when massaged in gently.
I’ve been using it around my cuticles and on any dry areas on my hands; a little goes a long way. This is a good product to use after you’ve been cleaning or washing the dishes (something I do far too often; where’s my dishwasher?!) to protect the delicate skin of your hands. My hands always feel nourished and remarkably soft after use.
Balancing Facial Oil
I was so excited to try this out! The oil is suggested for use on normal/combination skin, which is ideal for me (I have a problematic T-zone and normal/dry cheeks).
It smells deeply aromatic (strong citrus notes) and can be massaged gently into the face, to restore moisture to any dry areas and generally balance the skin. The oil is so light, it can be used on the T-zone; it hasn’t made my skin greasy or caused any breakouts (in fact, my skin is remarkably clear).
This is a high quality product and has been better for my skin than a number of facial oils I have paid over £30 for, in the past. If you have a similar skin type to mine, I cannot recommend it highly enough.
Rose Geranium Soap
This soap is just gorgeous in appearance, with tiny rose petal flakes and neat packaging. Predictably, it smells wonderful (if you love roses, this captures the scent perfectly) and leaves your skin feeling lightly moisturised; it does not seem to be at all drying and lathers up well.
In conclusion, these three natural products have fitted into my routine wonderfully. All are high quality products and would make beautiful gifts; I cannot overstate how professionally they are packaged and designed.
