I'm not going to lie. This range is probably one I would have overlooked if it wasn't for skincare extraordinaire Caroline Hirons recommending the facial oil on her blog. After reading her post I picked up all the bits I could lay my hands on. It certainly didn't hurt that everything was half price at the time making most of the products under £2.00 each, a real bargain!

The stand out products for me, the ones I have incorporated into my permanent rotation are the Eye Make Up Remover liquid (I just can't get on with the lotion), the Eye Gel and of course, the Facial Oil. I use the eye make up remover before cleansing properly in the evening and find it does the job just fine. It's gentle and doesn't sting my eyes or cause any sensitivity at all. The eye gel is a bit of a controversial one because of the inclusion of a small amount of menthol so you may want to avoid this if you have particularly sensitive eyes. I myself quite like the cooling, lightweight feeling of this in the morning and I will definitely continue to use it. The facial oil is just lovely. I have used it several times before bedtime when my skin felt a bit sensitive and over stimulated and found it nourishing and calming, leaving my skin supple but not overly greasy.

An honourable mention goes out to the Face Polish which is a great inexpensive balm-style exfoliating cleanser with shea butter and coconut oil. I massage this into dry skin and buff off with a warm wash cloth before removing any residue with a second cleanse. The only reason I wouldn't repurchase this myself is because I prefer a chemical exfoliant(eg:Pixi Glow Tonic, First Aid Beauty Pads) rather than a physical 'scrubbing' exfoliant but I can appreciate that it is a solid product and would work very well for some.

If you fancy taking a closer look, other products included in the range are a Cleansing Wash, Face Cream, Eye Make Up Remover Lotion(which bothers my eyes a bit), Face Wipes and Body Butter.
