Saving My Skin & The Planet with Up Circle Skincare | AD

 It is no surprise that Up Circle is one of my favourite brands when it comes to looking after my skin. I have used their products nearly every day for months now and they have to be the best brand both performance-wise and ethically. So now that they have released two new products, you can bet how excited I was to get into them.



Over the past few months, I have really loved using the Up Circle products from their Clay Face Mask to their Soap Bar. They have given me so much to work with within 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.

I have also been able to reuse the empties from these products. The products themselves are made with ingredients that would usually be thrown away but once you've used them all up you can wash out the packaging and use it for something new. 


Eye Cream

The brand new Eye Cream is the perfect addition to my skincare routine, as a mom of two young boys, you bet I need this. 

The amazing Eye Cream is made with repurposed maple bark extract, so once again you're helping your skin with a natural product without the guilt of thinking it's been harvested from natural land. 

It performs to brighten the skin with coffee oil from repurposed grounds, suitable for all skin types, suitable for under makeup use (which is amazing) and you can even get the pot refilled for repeat orders!

The eye cream has really helped to transform me, especially on my regular normal stay at home with the kids days. It allows me to brighten up the bags under my eyes from lack of sleep etc, if that be with or without makeup. I find a lot of eye creams break down my makeup when added to the top which makes things impossible to navigate but this stays and allows my makeup to stay in place too. 

The product itself is very lightweight so you don't feel like your under eyes are caked, it pretty much soaks in in seconds and leaves you feeling natural and fabulous. It is also so easy to use, all you have to pump a tiny amount onto your finger, dab it into the dry areas and let it soak in.

Vegan, Cruelty-free and UK-made. Housed in a glass bottle. For a plastic-free refill, simply save the pump from your first bottle and select "Refill - aluminium cap" from the drop-down menu when you make a repeat purchase!



Face Toner

The Up Circle is something you need in your skin routine, it is the perfect product for me after a long day of wearing makeup. It helps lift all the crap leftover in my skin and helps stop any inflammations from forming.

Made with repurposed chamomile extract to soothe and contains residual water of green mandarin fruit. Use after cleansing your skin to make sure it's as clean as possible to stop the build-up of dirt. Enriched with hyaluronic acid to plump your skin and of course comes in a plastic-free aluminium cap option for repeat orders.

It is such an amazingly hydrating product that helps to bring your skin back to life. I love using it on non-makeup days as a spray to make me feel more hydrated and bright. It is made with anti-inflammatory residual water of green mandarin fruit which, as I've said, helps to reset the skin to a non-puffy state. Which often happens after a long day with and without makeup.

So easy to use too, After cleansing the skin just apply the product to your fingertips or a cloth/pad and gently sweep over your face. As mentioned it can be used as a mist throughout the day too. Such a lovely product for people of all skin types.


Up Circle is one of those brands I always have full faith in, the make me feel so good and make the planet happy too. What else can you ask for? They have become the basis of all my skincare needs no matter what state it is in.
