Sea of Herbs - Skincare Review

Saturday, August 29, 2015

It's been a while since I featured anything beauty and health related so I thought it was high time I remedied that problem.
I was sent this small but comprehensive skincare regime by the company Sea of Herbs about a month ago which I have been road testing for the whole time to really give my honest review. 
I was sent a bar of Milk & Oats soap, a 30ml dropper vial of Vitamin Face Oil and a tub of Firming Pomegranate Cream. These were all chosen in conjunction with each other and tailored to my skincare needs as I communicated my current skin concerns with the company and they recommended these products. 

How I used these products:

Milk and Oats soap
I started by washing my face with the Milk and Oats soap to ensure a clean base. The beauty of this soap is that it also exfoliates mainly due to the oat bits within the bar (see pictures).
The soap creates a nice gentle milky lather though it is not too bubbly to cause concern (more suds usually means more chemicals). I really enjoyed this mild bar and used it at the end of my makeup removal regime. Once I had removed the majority of my makeup I used the soap as the last cleansing step. I tested its ability to cleanse with a cotton ball soaked in toner to see if there was any remaining makeup on my face but my face was squeaky clean!

Vitamin Face Oil:
Next step I would spread the Vitamin Face Oil all over my face and neck to deeply moisturise my skin. This oil is a mixture of vitamins A, C, D and E which makes it a multi-use multi-purpose oil. Each vitamin tackles a different area of skincare so you are resell getting a fabulous product. This product was my absolute favourite from the entire range as I have dry skin and find oils are the most effective in combatting that. It is recommended to use only a few drops of this oil but I would use probably 5 drops per night and really worked it into my face and neck. Massaging this amber coloured oil into my skin would give me this beautiful after glow that only a really rich oil will give. 

Firming Pomegranate Cream:
This is the final step of the regime and was kind of the icing on the cake. After I massaged my face and neck with the rich oil I would gently pat this light cream over my skin without overworking it so that I had a film of cream sitting over my face. The reason I did this was to create a mask like effect. I have been doing this for years to soften my flakey skin and it really works. The cream would really do wonders for my skin as I slept and I would wake to baby soft skin. 

Additional step:
Once every few days I would include this additional step to really deeply hydrate my skin. Basically what you do is scoop a small amount of cream into the palm of your hand and then squirt a few drops of the oil on top of it. Then you need to mix these two together to create a super emollient super rich face cream. Apply this all over your face making sure you massage it in. Works an absolute treat!

Overall opinion.
I genuinely think this skincare line worked well with my skin. I experienced no breakouts and found my skin to be soft and supple after using them. I really made sure I used these products daily so that I can give you my honest opinion. I really wouldn't mess around with something as sensitive as skincare so you know I am being 100% truthful with you. 
If you would like more information I would recommend emailing the company as their customer service is excellent and they can guide you towards the right products to cater to your needs inshallah.
