You might remember that last week I posted about the VeeBeautyLDN Haircare products I had tried and said I would update you on the skincare at a later date. Well as they say, there is no time like the present so let’s jump straight into the cleansers!
Rose Cleansing Beauty Balm – £11.95
I tried two of the VeeBeautyLDN Cleansing Beauty Balms, the first of which was the rose one. Ingredients wise it contains Coconut oil, shea butter, Olive Oil, beeswax, vitamin E and rose geranium essential oil. Lots of softening and gentle ingredients to stick to the grease and dirt for you to remove with a warm cloth. Oils like this are also great to remove eye makeup. The floral scent will hit you instantly as you use this and I found it lovely to use in the morning. My top tip is that I find it’s vital the cloth is warm otherwise you just end up pushing the oils about your face. Use a flannel to be super gentle or a muslin for a little bit of gentle exfoliation.
Lavender and Lemon Cleansing Beauty Balm – £11.95
Next up is the Lavender and Lemon version of the Cleansing Beauty Balm. Again the cleansing ingredients are similar with Beeswax, Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Olive Oil, Vitamin E, Lavender Oil, Lemon Oil, Tea Tree Oil, Eucalyptus Oil. It looks as though this one would better suit oily or spot prone skin with the antibacterial properties of tea tree and eucalyptus as well as lemon oil to cut through any grease on the skin. I’ve been using it in the evenings to let the lavender oil help calm my mood for sleep. As with the last Cleansing Beauty Balm, warm water on a cloth is the best way to remove this along with your grease, dirt and make-up.
Clarifying Clay Mask – £16.95
Stupidly I forgot to take a photo of this mask on to show you what it looked like but it was a dark grey clay on the skin. The packaging said to make it up with 1 tsp mask to 2 tsp water (or other liquids such as apple cider vinegar) but I found this was quite runny and had to add a little more of the mix in to thicken it up. I would say less is more when making it up and add more water if required.
It’s packed with a variety of clays to make it super absorbent and also contains lots of natural exfoliants to buff the skin when washing off. The mask made my skin feel quite tight which is pretty normal for a clay mask. It was a bit too stimulating for me though and I wouldn’t generally consider myself to have sensitive skin.
While I have loved all the other products I tried, this wouldn’t be one I would purchase. I didn’t enjoy the feeling of it nor the price for the effects. If I wanted a natural face mask I could think of other brands who make them for a lower price and which feel gentler on the skin.
Rose Gold Elixer – £19.95
Last but not least is the Rose Gold Elixer . This product has a lovely scent with the rose and citrus oils blending together. It is packed with loads of nourishing oils to hydrate, balance the skins oil production and aid the repair of skin as well as holding back signs of ageing. For a bit of extra added indulgence there is 24k Gold Leaf – gold is a natural antioxidant, it will also fight free radicals which cause the signs of ageing.
I’ve been using this every evening and really enjoying the feel of it. It would be too heavy to wear during the day unless you had very dry skin but it makes a perfect overnight treatment to keep the skin in top condition.
Out of the 6 products VeeBeautyLDN gifted me, I really enjoyed all of them excluding the Clarifying Clay Mask which just really was not for my skin. The ingredients in their products are great – clean and natural choices with them avoiding synthetics and parabens. While I am not anti synthetics or parabens, I can’t deny it is lovely to stick to natural ingredients. Price wise, the products are all very reasonably priced for the quality of the ingredients.
Will I buy again? It’s very possible! It can take me a while to repurchase things due to the amount of products I keep in my bathroom at anyone time but I can for sure see myself going back for a few products and I would definitely love to try the nail and cuticle oil and lip balms in the future.
