    Smells & Feels really lovely on the skin, a little goes a long way. You feel relaxed as soon as you put it on! Highly recommend it!

    Julie Reid

    This cleanser is really luxurious and rich with the most amazing fragrance. It left my skin feeling satiny smooth and hydrated

    Jane E Crofts Testing panel

    Loved the aroma, the results were amazing.

    Sarah Hand Testing panel

    My skin felt fresh, clean and plump for longer than using my normal cleanser

    Viv Hargreaves

    Face wash really cleans well but without drying out. And love the fresh clean citrusy smell!

    Jane Holtham

    I've been a fan of the super oil for years, and was thrilled to try out the other products. The facial oil is wonderful and the cleansing face balm is my new addiction.


    leaves the skin feeling hydrated, radiant and glowing and removes all traces of makeup. It feels like a mini-facial as it is also calming and soothing.
