Waitrose have just launched a new affordable skin care range. The Waitrose Pure range is made from 98% natural ingredients, is for sensitive skin and is fragrance free. Each product in the range is priced at £2.99 but is currently on an introductory offer at £1.99 each (ends on 1.4.14).
The range includes; facial wipes, face cream, eye make-up remover, hand cream, cleansing wash, eye gel, beauty balm, facial oil and face polish.
I picked up three of the products to try out. I have sensitive skin so anything natural and fragrance free is always worth giving a go.
Firstly the facial oil, it comes in 30ml size. This product is made from 98% natural ingredients. Being a fragrance free product it doesn't have a scent. The facial oil is easily absorbed into the skin. Simply warm a few drops of the oil in the palms of your hands and rub over your cleansed face and neck.
Made with sweet almond oil and vitamin E it leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth. The product feels light on the skin and is suitable for all skin types. I have combination skin and it has helped to even out my skin.
The next product I picked up was the beauty balm 50ml. This made from 99% natural ingredients. The beauty balm is made from shea butter and coconut, it leaves your skin feeling nourished and hydrated. The balm is quite a thick consistency, so gives intense moisturising.
The balm is quite hard in the tub but once you've scooped some out it starts to melt onto your skin. The balm can be used on all dry areas including elbows, cuticles, lips and heels. Again like the facial oil it has no smell so can be applied liberally.
Finally the face polish 75ml. This product is 100% natural so is great for your skin. Its made from shea butter and coconut oil like the beauty balm. The polish is a different texture then I was expecting. It feels like a smooth balm with small exfoliating particles in it.
Similar to the beauty balm when it comes in contact with the skin its starts to melt and become more workable. Use the polish weekly on damp skin and it will help to remove all dead skin cells which may be sitting on your skin. The polish leaves your skin feeling soft and refreshed, and prepped for cleansing and moisturising.
Overall I think this range is great for everyday use. The natural ingredients mean that your skin isn't coming into too much contact with chemicals which is always a good thing. For the price the products are defiantly great value for money and well worth buying.
