Lucky cloud cleansing balm and face oil my new skincare faves
I am normally very brand loyal when it comes to skincare. I have, for many years used natural skincare Dr Hauschka and Liz Earle being my favourite.
I came across Lucky Cloud skincare last year and have been stocking their body care range since Easter time. I have loved their products from the start for their simplicity, and natural, plant based ingredients making them perfect to use everyday but equally perfect to use on troubled skin whether that be eczema or other types of irritated skin conditions.
When they developed a cleansing balm and face oil I was super keen to give it a go especially since they both contain Neroli essential oil, one of my faves.
Not only does Neroli smell lovely it is known to improve the elasticity of the skin and is traditionally used to treat anxiety.
I have never used an oily cleanser before so was a little concerned that I might feel a bit greasy especially using the facial oil. I was pleasantly surprised as my skin feels super smooth and very clean (I use a white muslin cloth and it definitely gets the grime off!!!) I have yet to find a toner that I can use every day but Lucky cloud are developing one, My sister who is a beauty therapist says she uses a simple oil to cleanse her skin in the evening I have to confess my evening cleansing routine is not really routine at all much to my sister horror!! This cleanser would certainly meet her approval.
I then either add a couple of drops to my normal moisturiser or use the oil on its own. The oil leaves my face supple and smooth and not greasy especially if you leave your face for 5 minutes before putting on make up.
There are many facial oils on the market all claiming various different things. Luck Cloud's facial oil, amongst others contains rosehip seed oil which is full of fatty acids, antioxidants and vitamins helping to combat the effects of ageing and along with the mixture of oils and vitamins, I believe has the perfect mix to allow it to hold is own without breaking the bank.
Verdict - brilliant, smells divine, gentle on sensitive skin and leaves skin, cleansed and silky smooth.
The facial oil is now an essential part of my daily routine, I love it and since using it for over a month I have not had any red or itchy patches near my eyebrows that I can be prone to.
I love this brand and look forward to see what other lovely products they develop.
