Konichiwa Washi Hot Cloths

My skin is super sensitive so I've never been a fan of muslin cloths; too much like washing your face with a piece of sack cloth. Ordinary facecloths/flannels are good provided you plump for something with a high thread count. You need something to remove your cleanser with and this is where Washi Hot Cloths are my first choice.

Approximately 9" x 9", 100% cotton, incredibly soft, machine washable and quick drying, the Washi cloth fits perfectly across the hand. It works beautifully with any type of cleanser, mask or scrub. And they pack up small enough to slip into any travel case. 

Each cloth comes individually wrapped in a paper sleeve, printed with one of six designs that you choose. Super affordable too, a pack of five are only £6.25. The Washi line includes their skin polishing towels, the reusable alternative to scrubs.

Anar Naturals Naturelle Facial Cleanser Cream

There is nothing better than the fresh clean feeling after you have just cleansed your face.

There is also nothing better than your face feeling moisturised and not tight after use.

 

I have loads of cleansers, facial washes, hot cloth cleansers and various other products that are designed to cleanse your face.

 

A lovely natural cream cleanser I have come across is by Anar Naturals. 

 

So here is more about the product itself.

 

Best Facial Cleanser with Acne Wash

Have sensitive skin? Anar Naturals Facial Cleanser Cream is the best facial cleanser with Acne Wash. It receives extremely high marks from those who have tried it. Free of fragrances, dyes, soaps, and alcohol, this Acne wash will neither dry nor irritate your skin, leaving it feeling smooth, never tight and stretched. It’s a gentle way to wake up the skin, polishing away impurities, oil and makeup for a clean, comfortable feel, with no pore-clogging residue. Free from Parabens, SLS and Phthalates.

Anar Naturals Facial Cleanser Cream cleans all complexion types – even sensitive and oily skin – while refreshing and reviving the face. Can either be used as a skin freshener to brighten up your skin during the day or at the end of the day? With organic Rose Petal Extract, it leaves a fresh, subtle scent which is suitable for and loved by men and women of all generations..

Your skin is exposed to innumerable external factors such as pollution and dirt, which can affect your skin deeper than you understand, blocking your skin pores. Early signs of aging, spots and marks on the skin and a general lack in brightness in your skin are a result of all these external factors. Therefore, facial cleansing is of highest essence and should never be ignored by anyone wishing to have a flawless radiant complexion and used to prevent skin imperfections. 

 

 

This cleanser has such beautiful packaging, the box is very easy to open and inside contains a green and silver plastic ball that twists open with ease.

 

The ball is easy to open, easy to hold and has a flat part to the bottom so it does not roll around, something I can imagine would get very annoying.

 

Once it has opened, there is a plastic lid to prevent leakage. This is very important as I hate the product ending up all over the lid and I believe it keeps the contents fresher.

The lid has a small tab that makes it very easy to pull off.

 

 

Once opened, you can instantly smell a luxuriously creamy scent, it reminds me so much of plain facial creams. Apart from a faint scent of natural rose, there is no other scent detectable, just 100% creaminess.

 

 

 

Scooping enough product out of the jar is very easy and it has a medium-thick consistency which makes it very easy to apply to your face, massaging the cream in to make sure you get a nice deep down clean.

 

 

 

It feels really silky when massaging the product between my fingers, this means when applying you will have no pull or drag on your skin, something that can actually irritate your delicate face.

 

On the box, it doesn't have great instructions, it just basically says massage into the skin.

 

I had to look online for the best use.

 

What you need to do, is rinse your face with clean water then apply this cleanser, massaging into the face.

Once finished massaging, apply a small amount of water to fingers and work into the face and the cream, then wipe away with a cotton wool pad.

 

So, this is what I did.

 

I massaged into wet skin, applying a little water afterwards then used a dry cotton wool pad to get the product off.

Now I wasn't sure if you could leave any product behind, so I used a wet cotton wool pad too, to get rid of the excess product from my face.

 

After my face had been pat dry, my skin felt really soft and smooth. I could get away without moisturising as it was so hydrated just after using the cleanser.

 

I used it on a bare face and with make up.

 

With a bare face, I felt like I had a really good cleanse on the surface, but it did not feel like a good deep down clean.

 

With make up, it removed foundation and blusher really well, however eye make up was harder.

I ended up having to use a separate eye make up remover to get rid of the waterproof mascara and eyeliner that I had used.

 

I prefer this cream on bare skin, not with make up.

It isn't as effective with make up on.

 

After a week of use, my skin was so much softer, dry skin was eliminated and I didn't have to wear my usual moisture surge moisturisers, I could just use my every day one as my skin was so soft.

 

I had a break out on day 3 of a couple of spots on my face and I really do think this moisturiser helped calm them down and stop them being so red and sore.

 

If you have problem with spots, this could be a good product to use when they are red and sore as it does calm them down really well.

 

So all in all, I really did enjoy using this product and I really do love the look of the jar.

Eden Organic Care 100% Certified Organic Avocado Oil

I was thrilled to have the opportunity to trial this new brand and have always been a fan of pure oils. They have so many amazing benefits for the whole body. When I received the Eden Organic Avocado Oil I was amazed at the size of the product. There was no excuse but to use this product with abandon and I quickly set about testing it on as many parts of my body as possible.

An attractive packaging & A stunning bottle

The box is attractive clearly printed and conducive to the pure product contained within. The biggest impact for me was when I removed the product from the box. Eden has scored 100% for me on the packaging. For such reasonably priced oil the bottle is stunning and gives the impression of a high quality product. The bottle is plastic with an inner white tube, giving a beautiful multi-layer look to the bottle. The product is dispensed via a large silver pump action nozzle which is protected by a clear plastic lid. The bottle looks sleek, professional and sits very nicely on show next to your key products on the bathroom shelf.

20140512 13314320140512 133225

I love multi-tasking products and this one did not let me down. I am in my 40’s and am consistently finding oils beneficial to my skin, which can often ne dehydrated, hormonal and of course showing the dreaded signs of middle age. The First trial for me was layering the product under my moisturiser. The instructions state that you should use 2-3 pumps for the face and décolleté but after initial dispense I found that 1 pump was more than sufficient per application. Sadly the pump has quite a jerky fast action and you need to be careful not to shoot the product across the bathroom. This slight issue by no means detracts from the quality of the oil. On dispensing you will find that the oil has an olive green/ brown colour and whilst this not the most attractive colour for a facial product, it is indeed normal and indicates the pureness of the oil. There is a mild Avocado scent to the product which quickly dissipates. If you are a fan of perfumed oils this may not be attractive for you but after all, it is results we like, not cosmetic fragrances. One pump warmed between the palms is easily applied to the face and gives an instant warming and nurturing feeling. It quickly absorbs without greasy residue and I find that I need less moisturiser than usual after the base oil. The oil gives an instant comfort feeling to the skin and deeply hydrates and soothes. After 2 weeks of use my skin looks less dull, more hydrated and it has evened my skin tone significantly. Top marks for facial use for me!

20140512 133304

The second trial was my hair. I use Argan Oil on a regular basis both as a pre-wash treatment and a styling treatment and I had reservations of the capabilities of Avocado Oil for this purpose. These reservations were unfounded. I have very long hair and it is fine so prone to splitting and dehydration. As a pre-wash treatment I applied 4 pumps of oil to the mid lengths and ends of my hair and left for approximately one hour under a good quality shower cap. It does take two shampoos to remove the product but after shampooing I did not need to use my usual heavy duty conditioner as the Avocado Oil was more than sufficient. After styling my hair looks shinier, sleeker and above all less dry. Be careful not to apply to the roots however, as this can weight down the hair. The oil also helped immensely with my itchy scalp which was calmed after the first use. As a leave in product I use one pump applied to the mid lengths and ends before styling. It is a great frizz tamer and gives the hair a beautiful shine by flateening and smoothing the damaged hair cuticles and helping to nourish and retain natural moisture.

A Body Moisturiser and Hand Treatment

I have also used this oil as a body moisturiser and hand treatment. For the body I found that applying the oil to damp skin ensured that the product would go further. It is not a thick oil but of you use it on towel dry skin you will find you need more product. It instantly hydrates the skin and leaves it wonderfully smooth and supple. I have also found it fantastic on dry feet! A good generous application with bed socks on top works wonders for those dry patches on the feet.

My Findings and Recommendation

After so many uses all over the body I am still only half way down the bottle and I am thrilled at the value for money. It is a wonderful, multi-tasking product that would have benefits for every user. As long as you respect the principles of oils you will always find them a hero product for your tailor made issues! Being 100% organic and the fact the Eden will donate 10% of their profits to world charities I could not rate this product enough. It certainly holds its own against more costly brands and will certainly remain a staple on my bathroom shelf!!
