Lyonsleaf is a brand that’s been on my radar for a while. I used their Beauty Balm a few years ago and loved it but haven’t tried any of their others. So when I was asked if I’d like to try them I jumped at the chance. I was kindly sent 4 different ones to try so here are my thoughts!
Lyonsleaf are a great natural brand and they use only the best and purest ingredients. THey don’t belive in using water as a base product (which many brands do because it means they can make them cheaper and make more of a profit from customers) which means you get the most out of each ingredient. It also means that you only need a tiny amount of product and it will last you ages. I love that there aren’t that many ingredients in their products too.
100% Natural Beauty Balm * £14.99
As mentioned above I’ve tried this before but it was a few years ago so I was excited to see if it had the same affect now. I’m pleased to say that it’s just as nice as I remember and still such a luxury to use. This is the perfect cleanser to take off make up as it just melts everything down really easily and a hot flannel then removes it all. My skin is left clean and nourished ready for the rest of my skincare routine.
100% Natural Calendula Cream * – 10.95
I like to use this as an intensive moisturiser. I apply it to any dry areas on my face, or all over if it’s all feeling a little parched at night and wake up with the most smooth and calmed skin. I’ve also found that it works great for any dry patches on your face before make up too. I apply it over the patch and then my make up sits much better and you can’t see where my skin is dry and/or flaky. A perfect cream if you suffer from eczema, rosacea or psoriasis. This one is also Vegan which is a great bonus!
Calendula & Marshmallow Balm * £10.95
This pot is probably my favourite as it can be used for so many things. For any dry patches I have on my body – dry heels, elbows, hands and even lips are all sorted out by using a tiny dab of this. I have a dry hairline so I’ve been using it there too and it’s helped so much with my flaky skin!
Another place you can use these balms is on your hair! Just a tiny amount warmed up in your fingers does a great job of moisturising split ends. My hair is dyed a lot so is pretty dry and I’ve found using this on the lower lengths has helped it become smooth and shiny again. I haven’t seen any long terms effects on my hair yet but I use it everyday so am hoping it will help in the long run too.
100% Natural Zinc & Calendula Cream * £10.95
This is perfect for if you have children, as this is suitable for everyone including babies and people with sensitive skin. It soothes any irritated skin and acts as a barrier to lock in moisture too. The added zinc reduces excess sebum production. According to Lyonsleaf this can be used on infants with nappy rash as a natural alternative to main stream creams (please check this yourself for your own child before trying it).
Lyonsleaf do a great collection of balms and creams which are perfect for this time of year. Dry skin should be terrified when it sees a pot of these coming towards it! They also do other products like face oils and a hair tamer. I’d definitely recommend trying one of these out if you suffer from dry skin and you won’t be disappointed.
