Sustainable Skincare with Up Circle | AD

Skincare is something that is really important to me. After years and years of suffering with cystic acne and being told to stay clear of anything other than water on my skin: I gave found a good skincare routine to be very important to my skin health.

My skin has been the best it's been a while, which is strange considering my strong diet of Kinder Buenos and the extreme amount of pregnancy hormones running through my veins. I have ditched the 'water only' skincare that I was advised by the dermatologist and opted for products that are not only better for my skin but the environment too.

The sign of a good product, is something you don't have to use every single day: Which is great for those with slow memory like myself.

The Cleansing Face Balm is the perfect product for any skin type. I have really loved using this product on the days when I wear makeup and skin products on my skin: It allows for a gentle removal of any makeup and impurities. The pot itself is an average size and you only need the smallest amount to cover your face. 

It isn't the kind of product I would us every day but I don't like wearing products on my skin all the time. A go-to product for days when I feel my skin is in need of a really good clean, perfect for travelling and great for a deep skin pamper.

As with all of the Up Circle range, The Cleansing Face Balm is sustainable, vegan, cruelty free and made in the UK. What's not to love?

Soap is just Soap right? No. A staple item that should be in your skincare routine. For acne prone skin, like mine, this is a great product to use. The gentle exfoliating natural soap is to cleanse and moisturise the skin. The soap itself is infused with green clay which helps to draw toxins from the pores. The bar is package-less meaning there is minimal waste and a brilliant product for getting into the deep pores.

The Soap Bar infused with Cardamon & Fennel Soap is a really great product for a deep clean, ance prone skin and those looking for a reliable product.

The Up Circle product that has really blown me away has been the Beauty Detoxifying Clay Face Mask  for once, blackhead and blocked pores prevention. Don't feel like if you don't suffer from bad skin that this product is wasted on you because it is great for all skin types, helping to give a healthy smooth skin.

Made with the fine powder of discarded olive stones, the Face Mask is a brilliant product to keep in your bathroom cupboards for pamper evenings, much needed refreshing or every day cleansing.

The Coffee Face Scrub Herbal Blend is the perfect exfoliator for oily and combination skin. I have loved using this product every other day, helping to buff away dead and dry skin. Created with repurposed coffee grounds from London Cafes, the scrub helps to fight breakouts and bad skin. 

I have really loved using Up Circle products because not only are they great for my skin but they have given me more confidence with my routine. I don't feel under pressure to use the same products every single day and continuously be scrubbing at my face. These products give me room to clean my skin when I feel they are needed. The minimal plastic, waste and the repurposed ingredients means that you are getting more for your purchase.
