Siskyn Skincare are an amazing Skincare brand based around natural oils.
They are 100% natural, vegan and use no synthetics, no derivatives or preservatives.
They are a Cornish Brand and actually fairly local to me which I hadn’t realised until after sampling their products! They have all sorts of amazing concoctions to work for all skin types and specialise in anti ageing oils for older and dehydrated skin.
They have kindly sent me a few of their products to try.
Firstly I tried out the Camellia and Safflower Hot Cloth Cleansing Oil.
This one retails for £36.00 which is a mid range price for naturals oils, although they are labelled as luxury, and that is exactly how they feel. The packaging is glass and looks and feels of great quality. It even comes with a lovely muslin cloth to help remove the oil.
This can be used as a daily cleanser with just one pump smoothed into the face and then removed with the cloth and some hot water. It can also be used as a makeup remover which is how I used it most. I am a makeup wearer and sometimes a heavy makeup remover. It does state on the bottle you only need one pump however I found when wearing heavy makeup I needed at least 5 quirts to get the makeup off. However it slides on the skin so smoothly and melts the makeup away with ease. It even works well for removing stubborn waterproof mascara! Which is a must in the Cornish weather believe me!
It claims to leave the skin clear, clean and balanced. It is full of 100% certified organic botanical oils. Some of which include Castor oil known for anti inflammatory purposes so great for those with acne, breakouts and problem skin. Also Safflower which helps to unclog those stubborn pores and lift away impurities. This combined with the Camellia which is balancing is a wonderful combination.
It is suitable for all skin types from dry to very oily and even sensitive skin. It really is an amazing cleanser. It works well to remove makeup and as a general face wash. It is smooth, pleasant smelling and easy to remove. The cloth is great quality and easy to clean also.
I will say the scent of this threw me a little. It literally smells like peanuts. I have no idea what ingredient in it makes this happen or maybe its the combination of them all. But to me it smells like peanuts… not a bad thing at all!!!
But you don’t even have to take my word for it as this one has won some amazing awards this year such as winner of the beauty shortlist 2017 Mama and Baby Editors Choice award, and being Shortlisted for the 2017 Free From Awards, face care-wash off. And the Winner of the Beauty Shortlist 2017, Best Oil Cleaner Award.
Another of their products I was kindly gifted was the Elixir- Toning Body Oil in Grapefruit and Sweet Fennel.
This one retails at £32.00. As you can probably guess this one is for firming and toning the skin and helping increase skin elasticity. To help your body look younger for longer!
It has a blend of 14 pure botanical plant oils. Some included are Carrot seed for toning and helping with skin elasticity and Black Cumin which is a deep moisturiser for lasting smooth skin. It has Hazulnut for toning, Grapeseed which helps with antioxidants, and Peach and Apricot Kernel to help with skin structure. Sweet Fennel, Grapefruit and Cypress help to boost circulation as well as leave a fruity scent.
The fragrance is fruity and zesty making it perfect for both men and women.
As this one does have essential oils in it it is recommended you use it once a day, perhaps after your shower or before bed. It is recommended it is used at night time and unfortunately not for the pregnant ladies due to the essential oil content.
One of the things I love most about this one is that it absorbs really quickly. I personally use it straight out of the shower as this is where I need it most and I hate having to wait around for ages for your moisturisers to sink in. I do not have the patience. So to know this one sinks into the skin in just a minute or so really helps with my get up and go mentality.
I have really enjoyed trying out this skincare range and can’t wait to try some more local treats! I always love to support local businesses and this one was a true treasure! Amazing skincare and amazing quality.
