Lucy Russell Face balm and scrub

The Facial Serum
The serum is an oil based product which contains Rosehip seed oil, Borage oil and Candula oil and combined with essential oils such as sweet orange and Neroli flower it sounds divin even before trying it.

The serum is designed for all skin types including you sensitive types and can be used as a daily moisturser, a night time fix or a facial massage oil.

The serum itself is fairly thick and i did worry at first that coverege wouldnt be easy...however i was wrong..went on the skin easily..didnt leave a greasy residue or anything and sinked into the skin. It left my skin feeling lovely and soft and totally replenished.

The full size version is available for £28 for 30ml here

The Rose Toner
This is a delicate toner fused with Rosewater and rare organic Persian Rose essential oil. Aagain suitable for all skin types  but especially for dry, sensitive and mature types.

It has a lovely subtle rose scent that sent me back to being a child playing with my mums perfumes..really lovely!! The toner is cooling to apply and left my skin feeling fresh.

The full size version is £18 for 100ml here

The Cleansing Balm
My favourite of the lot, this is a rich cleansing balm designed to remover make up and balance dry and oily skin. It contains Jojoba seed oil, candual flower oil and coconut oil along with the yummy essential oils of lemon, orange and May Chang.

The balm comes in a solid state which on contact with the skin melts in and releases a smell of lemons. Coverage was easy and if removed using a muslin cloth (which they also sell) - the muslin helps to polish the skin and remove impurities leaving behind totally clean and refreshed skin. I was completely surprised by this product...my skin felt amazingly soft..so much so i didnt feel the need to use moisturiser.

The full size version is £24 for 60ml here

The Super Balm
Iv fallen in love with these super balms ever since i reviewed 'All for Eves' version a while back..and again this one does not disappoint. The balm is designed for multi purpose use so you can use on your face, feet, nails, hands, lips...basically anywhere that needs a little bit of nourishing TLC.

This balm contains a multitude of flower oils from Rosehip seed oil to Roman Chamomile Flower oil. Again it comes in a solid state...and a little goes a long way so a small pot will last you ages.It provides a fast instant fix to dry skin - you can even use this stuff on split ends!!

Iv used this for dry skin on my face and feet...and it works wonders.....this little pot will last me ages - if you havent yet discovered Super Balm give it a go...tis fabulous!!

This is available at £26 for 50ml and £10 for 15ml here

The Super Scrub
The super scrub is designed for all over body use. It contains a blend of brown sugar, coconut oil and cocoa and shea butters. Now i find with some scrubs they only contain a small amount of scrubbing bits and generally turn out quite disappointing - this you can literally see from looking at it is packed with ample scrubbing properties - the scrub is thick and very grainy, i felt perhaps a little too thick but it did cover well...It has quite a strong lemony fragrance which i wasn't overly keen on but the best thing about this product is the feeling of your skin after - zingy clean and soft....again no need for moisturiser!! fantastic!!

This is available at £27 for 200ml here

Lucy Russell has produced a fantastic little range of products here and its great to know exactly what your putting on your skin.... ie no nasties just natural ingredients!!

The pricing is at the higher end of the scale, however when you realise how much work goes into these products you can thoroughly understand the pricing point - the products scream quality, and with the gorgeous packaging would make an ideal gift.

I love the fact that everything is handmade and not created in a lab - its like your getting a little bit of Lucy with every product.

Most definately a cult brand in the making and will be interesting to see what products she develops in the future - Miss Russell should be very proud of herself!!Pin It
