Fresh Naturals Face Duo Mask & Soaps Review

October 6, 2016 7 Comments

I recently won an Instagram competition hosted by Fresh Naturals and the prize was a Face Duo Mask & Cleanser of your choice.

Fresh Naturals brings together amazing value products from small, independent Soap, Skincare, Bath & Beauty specialists
Everything we sell is Freshly Handmade and Cruelty Free – that’s a promise!

Freshly Handmade – just for you!
We have over 20 suppliers freshly making small batches of soap, bath bombs, face masks, lip balms, bath, beauty and skincare products by hand across the UK. Many are independent, small businesses from farms up in Scotland to cold press soap makers in Devon. Normally only available in small local gift shops, farmers markets and craft fairs, we bring all these great handmade products together in one place for you to buy.- Fresh Naturals

I had a look at their website and decided I really liked the look of the Pomegranate and Vitamin E Kaolin Clay Face Duo. So I asked if I could have that. After a little chat with Fliss of Fresh Naturals she kindly also sent me a few other products to try out and review too.

Fliss sent me the following to try including my Face Duo Mask that I won:

  • Pomegranate and Vitamin E Kaolin Clay Face Duo
  • Argan Oil and Heather Flower Lotion Bar Solid Moisturiser
  • Lemon, Grapefruit and Calendula Natural Sugar Scrub
  • Seascape Handmade Natural Soap

When I opened the parcel everything was really well wrapped in pretty tissue paper and the smell that emanated from the box was just gorgeous!

The Pomegranate and Vitamin E Kaolin Clay Face Duo (Cleanser and Mask) is just so lovely. I wasn’t sure if I should grab a spoon and eat it or put it on my face! Honestly, such a yummy smell. As you can see, it’s a thick creamy texture that glides onto the skin.

I applied it with a brush and you don’t actually need very much at all, so it’s going to last for quite a number of applications.

I left the mask on for around 20 minutes or so, then hopped into the shower. It rinsed off my face very easily without having to rub at it. With some clay mask they can be drying and leave the skin feeling tight even though they do a fantastic job at drawing out impurities. This wasn’t the case with this mask at all. It left my skin feeling really soft and it looked really clear and clean too.

You can actually use this Face Duo mask with a muslin face cloth as a hot cloth cleanser. I’ve not yet tried using it like that as I really love my masks.

Ingredients

Aqua, Kaolin, (Vegetable) Glycerin, Coco-Glucoside, Bentonite (a natural clay used to absorb oil and other impurities from skin), Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Argania Spinosa (Argan) Kernel Oil, Cetearyl Alcohol (fatty acid and glucose), Parfum, Coconut Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate (natural lubricant, made from palm kernel, vegetable or soy oil), Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Fruit Juice, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Dehydroacetic Acid (mild synthetic preservative and antibacterial, contains <0.6%), Disodium EDTA (food safe preservative and foaming agent), Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Benzyl Alcohol, Potassium Sorbate (a mild paraben-free preservative), CI 17200 (food colouring

Fresh Naturals Website

It contains No Parabens, Certified Vegetarian, No Artificial Fragrances. Contains food safe colouring.
There are 3 other Face Duo Masks also available:
  • Carrot and Avocado Kaolin Clay Face Duo (Cleanser and Mask)
  • Grapefruit and Orange Kaolin Clay Face Duo (Cleanser and Mask)
  • Tea Tree and Lemon Kaolin Clay Face Duo (Cleanser and Mask)
I think that this mask is absolutely fantastic value at only £5.95 per jar and I am definitely going to try the others out in the future too.

The next product I received was a Seascape Handmade Natural Soap; this is a pure handmade soap. It’s 100% natural and Vegan friendly too.
It came with this handy little buffer bag which acts as a gentle exfoliate. You place your soap inside and then rub it between your hands to work a lather up, then apply to the skin. You can also use the buffer bag instead of a muslin face cloth, using like you would a mitt. This bag has many uses actually. It can be used with Bath Salts, Soaks and Fizz. Simply fill the bag and hang under your taps whilst filling your bath. That way you get all of the benefits of the salts and essential oils but without all the bits getting in the bath.
The Seascape Handmade Natural Soap itself has a really fresh citrus scent as it contains grapefruit & black pepper essential oils. It really reminds me of the sea.

Ingredients
Sodium palmate, Sodium cocoate, Sodium olivate, Sodium sunflowerate, Sodium Cocoa butterate, Sodium castorate, Butyrospermum parkii, Citrus paradisi, Piper nigrum, Laminaria agardhii, *Limonene, *Citral. (*Naturally occurring in Essential Oils) – Fresh Naturals Website

It’s a really gorgeous soap and I adore the citrus Grapefruit scent it has, with that touch of spicy black pepper. They blend perfectly together.

Then we have these two bars, an Argan Oil and Heather Flower Lotion Bar Solid Moisturiser (left of pic)  and a Lemon, Grapefruit and Calendula Natural Sugar Scrub (right of pic).

These smell so amazing, I really wish you could smell them for yourselves. I don’t think I can do the scent of them justice!

The Argan Oil and Heather Flower Lotion Bar Solid Moisturiser just smells so so good. I can smell the Argan oil but the main thing I can smell is the Cocoa. It actually smells like chocolate to me; a creamy chocolate bar. It’s really moisturising and leaves your skin feeling not only soft but smelling heavenly too. I love the simple yet pretty dried Heather flowers that have been used on it too. It’s a really nice touch. These would look beautiful in a bathroom or guest room and would also make it smell lovely too.

Ingredients
Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Argania Spinosa (Argan) Kernel Oil, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Parfum, Calluna Vulgaris (Heather) Flowers, Cinnamal, Linalool, Eugenol, Benzyl Benzoate, Limonene.  – Fresh Naturals Website

Lastly but far from least is the Lemon, Grapefruit and Calendula Natural Sugar Scrub. 

This has a really subtle citrus scent from the Lemon Peel Oil and Grapefruit Peel Oil, a whisper of cocoa and just smells gorgeous. It’s a sugar scrub in a bar and is perfect in the shower or bath to use to gently exfoliate and moisturise your skin at the same time. It leaves the skin soft and nourished and gets rid of all the dead skin that makes your skin look so dull.

Ingredients
Sucrose, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Peel Oil, Citrus Paradisi (Grapefruit) Peel Oil, Limonene, Calendula Officinalis Petals, Citral.

20160928_144326_llsI’m really thoroughly impressed with all the products that Fliss sent me. They smell gorgeous, they feel wonderful; not to mention they leave your skin feeling amazing. Best of all they are all made with natural ingredients too!

I definitely recommend you stop by Fresh Naturals and take a look at their other products; you won’t be disappointed by what they have on offer for bath and body! They have such a great selection of products available. There is something for everyone.

  • I'll admit I am a sucker for a good face mask. Even more so if it's a honey one. 🍯 😍⠀ ⠀ This @farmacybeauty Honey Potion had been on my wishlist since I first came across it on Instagram ages ago. All I can say is it did not disappoint. Actually it did, in fact, exceed my expectations! ⠀ ⠀ I love watching the honey gooey texture change from a golden hue to creamy white when you start to massage it into your skin as it gets warm. ⠀ ⠀ After 10-15 mins it's ready to rinse off. Personally, I prefer to gently remove with a damp cloth, then pat dry.⠀ ⠀ My face always feels so very soft afterwards. It's suitable for all skin types but especially those that are dry, dehydrated and dull, which is pretty much my skin all over. I do feel like my skin looks more radiant as well as feeling nice and hydrated after using Honey Potion. ⠀ ⠀ I'd like to also mention the packaging, which is just beautiful - and I adore that the spatula/lid is magnetic too! 😊⠀ ⠀ This was a bit of a luxe purchase for me as I ordered it from Beautylish, along with some other skincare goodies that I wanted to try. I loved that I could split the total into 3 payments with them too. 🙂⠀ ⠀ Have you tried Honey Potion or anything else from @farmacybeauty?⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #honeypotion #farmacybeauty #skincare #skincareroutine #skincarecommunity #skincarejunkie #skincareproducts #skincareobsessed #skincarenatural #skincareluxury #facemask #facemasks #farmacy #propolis #royaljelly #honey
  • {gifted} I don't really like wearing foundation so this 'Feel Like Honey Moon Skin Base' by @touchinsol_ldn is perfect for me. It's not only a great base to use under your makeup but also makes your skin glow all on its own! 😍⠀ ⠀ I happily wear this without feeling the need to put foundation on, or even a BB or CC cream. ⠀ ⠀ Of course, it is a honey & collagen-based primer with a host of natural extracts & vitamins, so no wonder it makes the skin look, radiant and, for want of a better word, bouncy! 🍯 ⠀ ⠀ What's your favourite primer/base to wear alone or under makeup?⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #touchinsol_ldn #mmcl_ldn #primer #skincare #theinstagramlab #howyouglow #discoverunder20k #koreanskincare #rasianbeauty #koreanbeauty #kskincare #asianbeauty #skincareaddict #instaskincare #theblogtribe ⁣#화장품그램 #ABMhappylife #화장품추천 #스킨케어⁣ #abcommunity #abbeatthealgorithm #kbeauty #abskincare #abblogger #instablogger #kbeautyblogger #petitejoys #theeverygirl #touchinsol⠀
