You’ll have noticed that I mention PHB Ethical Beauty a fair few times in blogs and videos. They have a large product line and I have slowly been exploring some of the products mainly those from the fragrance free range. A couple of months back I bought the Gentle Cleanser with Olive & Plum and Avocado & Olive Sugar Scrub.
This is a milky cleanser with no scent which I like using in the mornings. It’s a little bit too runny for me and so in the evenings I use a balm for removing the daily grim and makeup. It is suggested that you massage this cleanser into skin using a cloth or cotton pad but I prefer using my fingers and removing with a damp cloth. Using cotton pads can get costly and I do worry for the environmental impact. I would recommend trying this product if you have sensitive skin and if that isn’t your skin type there are other cleansers available to choose from.
Avocado & Olive Sugar Scrub
This sugar scrub is rather unique compared to others I have used. As you will see from the picture it is a solid product. It looks like a bar of soap the only difference is you can feel it contains sugar granules. I use this in the shower and simply rub over my body where needed. The second ingredient in the scrub is cocoa butter so it does leave the skin with a rich layer of butter. It can feels a little too much but I just wash down with a konjac sponge and body wash to remove excess. My skin is left feeling silky smooth and I don’t need to apply any lotion. The downside is I do struggle with the abrasiveness of the sugar. I have very sensitive skin and have to grit my teeth when using this product but that goes for any scrub, it’s why I tend to avoid them. You’re probably wondering why I bought it, mainly curiosity. The sugar scrub is available in fragrance combinations as the Avocado & Olive is unscented.
PHB Ethical Beauty is an affordable brand and all products are suitable for Vegans. Whilst I might not purchase these two products again, my dislikes are personal and should not put you off. I am a fan of PHB's Gentle Moisturiser and Unscented Hand Cream.
