Conscious Skincare - Face Wash & Night Cream

Conscious Skincare - Face Wash & Night Cream
Conscious Skincare is an ethical company based in Wales. Products are handmade, organic, 100% chemical free and cruelty free for the face and body. They offer a specific range of products suited towards dry and sensitive skin and I was sent some samples.  I received the Gentle Face Wash and Gentle Night Cream.

Now you all know I love cream and balm cleansers so I was extremely sceptical about trying a face wash. I often find they can cause a tightening effect even those that are free from SLS/SLES. The Conscious wash contains no harsh detergents so it should not strip the skin. It does contain calendula and chamomile which are my hero ingredients because they work fantastically on sensitive skin. 

Face Wash Ingredients: aqua, organic potassium sunflowerate, organic potassium cocoate,organic glycerin, potassium chloride, potassium citrate, organic calendula flower extract, sunflower seed oil, organic chamomile oil, grapefruit seed extract

I found the best way for me to use this was to dampen my skin with a muslin cloth, massage in the product and then remove with the cloth. It’s purely personal preference to do it this way. I can’t stand splashing water across my face it’s too messy and I live in a hard water area so I think that contributes to drying skin out. The face wash lathers into a creamy consistency and it easy to work across the face. Once it is rinsed away I haven’t experienced a dry or tight sensation, my skin is left soft and clean.  There is no fragrance to the product.

The night cream has a soft texture and balm consistency which is rich and perfect for an intensive over night treatment.  The aroma is very heady from sandalwood and frankincense so may not be to everyone’s taste. It’s a lovely product with some fantastic ingredients clearly tailored to dry skin types. 

Night cream ingredients: organic fair-trade shea butter, organic cocoa butter, beeswax, organic comfrey root extract, organic evening primrose oil, grapefruit seed extract, organic calendula flower extract, sunflower seed oil, vitamin e, organic fair trade frankincense essential oil , organic sandalwood essential oil, rose damascena flower extract.

Overall, I have enjoyed sampling these products and I recommend you have a look for yourself. Some products are suitable for Vegans (includes face wash) and they are clearly labelled. Conscious Skincare do offer sample sizes and list all ingredients. Prices are affordable, for example, 200ml face wash £18 and 30ml night cream £16 (other sizes are available). If you are not dry and sensitive like me, do not fear there are products for oily/combination, mature and normal skin types.
