Natural Skincare Range – PUREPOTIONS Review.

Super happy to talk natural skincare again in this new post, as I have been saying from my very first post, natural skincare is very important to me. What you put on your skin gets absorbed into your system and can have effects on your health. I am very cautious about this and so have been writing about some great skincare brands that have this awareness and bring products that are toxin & chemical free!

Let me introduce to you one such brand today, PUREPOTIONS.  

I have been using some PUREPOTIONS products for a few weeks now and I am really happy to share my experience with you guys. Purepotions is a natural skincare range which provides nothing but all nature’s goodness to your skin. A mother’s search for the perfect cream for her daughter’s dry skin led to the birth of this brand. Nathalie Balmond experimented with several traditional recipes using herbs & oils such as hempcalendulanettle, and olive when she realized that all other conventional products just aggravated her daughter’s skin condition. She finally managed to make a cream that was gentle and soothed her little girl’s skin, and from then on she continued to develop other natural skincare products. Today, Purepotions has different ranges for different skin types and even a whole range for babies!

I was sent these three products by PUREPOTIONS to test and review,

  • Skin Salvation Omega Rich Cleansing Oil:

sKIN sALVATION REVEIEW PUREPOTIONS

This is a 100% natural cleanser which a perfect blend of rich oils which can be used daily to cleanse and moisturize skin. It is a perfect choice instead of using harsh soap based cleansers that’s strip your skin of the moisture and thereby damage the skin in the long term.

ingredients - chai & lipstick

This cleanser is rich in RosehipCalendula and sunflower oil which help to pull out impurities from the skin without clogging the pores along with the amazing benefits that each of them brings to the skin.

How to use

Apply a small amount of the oil on the skin and massage in circular motions. Then with the help of a cotton ball remove gently from the skin. A small amount goes a long way and is an excellent makeup remover without harming your skin.

  • Skin Salvation Intensive Facial Oil:

purepotions review

The Skin Salvation Facial oil is a combination of rich and beneficial oils to keep the skin well hydrated and supple. I am specially loving this oil as its been a skin saver during pregnancy for me. My skin has become dry and patchy, the use of this oil has helped my skin stay hydrated and nourished, and reduced the blemishes.

ingredients - chai & lipstick

It contains a high proportion of pure rosehip oil, as well as Lavender,  Palmarosa, & Roman Chamomile essential oils which together improve the overall skin health, and visibly reduces blemishes. Purepotions uses the best quality, UK- sourced cold-pressed organic sunflower and organic calendula oils.

facial oil - pure potions

I love using it at night and wake up with a well hydrated and supple skin. The thing that sets it apart from other facial oils besides the amazing quality of the ingredients, is that it is not very heavy on the skin and gets quickly absorbed. And I absolutely love that about this oil.

How to use
