Review: Lilly Anne Beauty Clean Purifying Cleanser

I hadn't heard of this brand until it popped up in the Bellabox - Lily Anne Beauty is an aussie brand new on the scene. They're calling themselves a "social selling and social impact" organisation - doing direct sales and giving a chunk of their money to humanitarian projects. Instead of general charity donations they seem to be concentrating on specific projects - microloans and other initiatives with clear goals, and they are diligently reporting their progress on their website.

Their range is all "natural" and cruelty free, and seems to be paying a lot of attention to ingredients, which is always nice to see.

The packaging is minimal and stylish, with a simple range of products that seems easy to understand.

The sample I got in the box was of the "Clean" purifying cleanser. It smells fresh, floral and a bit citrusy, and foams up nicely despite being free of artificial foaming agents. Did a good job of getting rid of all my makeup and left my skin feeling and smelling nice.

Looks as though this is a brand with a lot going for it- good products and a good cause too - can't really ask for more than that. I'm going to be trying to get my hands on some more of their range as soon as I can.

Review: Sukin Hydrating Facial Masque

This little beauty arrived in the BellaBox. I have been a fan of sukin's products for a long time - it's a simple, no-fuss range full of natural ingredients, at a price point that won't break the bank - and they're an Australian brand, too!

This hydrating facial masque smells like a tropical holiday - according to Sukin's info on the product the principal ingredients include Mango Butter, Avocado, Pineapple Extract and Olive Fruit Extract, so it's not surprising it has such a lovely aroma.

The masque goes on white and turns clear as it dries - you need a bit of a scrub to get it off, but afterwards my skin felt smooth and glowy.

A little goes a long way so I suspect the 50ml tub has quite a few applications in it. I'm going to enjoy having some pamper sessions with this.
