Lyonsleaf's Natural Skincare

Lyonsleaf Beauty Balm review

Lyonsleaf Beauty Balm review, cruelty-free and vegan

Lyonsleaf Calendula Cream and Body Butter review

Lyonsleaf are a U.K. brand who make 100% natural skincare, with an emphasis on treatments for those with sensitive skin and allergies. When I emailed asking about their cruelty-free status, the owner Vicky was kind enough to quickly reply with clear straightforward answers and sent me a few samples to try. All three of these products are suitable for vegans, and their entire range is vegetarian.

I was also very lucky to win a Lyonsleaf Beauty Balm in a giveaway held by Chesca of Fern & Moss. I'd wanted to try this balm for a while so I was super excited to win!

The Beauty Balm is made with 95% organic ingredients and has a lovely scent of shea butter and almonds. As soon as the balm warms on your fingertips it becomes an oil, which feels lovely to massage into your face. 

I wipe off the balm with a warm flannel, which really helps to exfoliate my skin. Any make-up and dirt is lifted easily. After washing it off my skin feels refreshed, and so soft that I don't even feel the need for moisturiser.

I always get blackheads on my nose, but using this balm twice a week has really helped to get them under control. It's rid a fair few of them and I find that less new ones are appearing.

The Calendula Cream has a pleasant smell of essential oils and feels very nourishing for my skin. You can use it on your face and body and as a natural treatment for eczema and psoriasis. I've been using this little pot as a hand cream and it's perfect for helping those little dry patches that often appear between my fingers. Plus, you really only need to use a tiny amount as it spreads so smoothly.

The Body Butter is very much like butter in it's consistency! It also spreads very nicely and (unlike butter) leaves no greasiness at all. It takes a little time to absorb but then melts into my skin and leaves it feeling very soft and smooth. I can certainly see myself buying a full tub of this in the future.

Have you tried Lyonsleaf before? What are your thoughts on natural skincare?
