Pukka Ayurveda Skincare review
The Gentle Cleanser is a gentle wash-off cream cleanser, that takes off all make-up, including mascara, and doesn't leave the skin feeling stripped or greasy. It's not artificially fragranced, and it has got a slightly odd bitter herbal smell from the hemp oil that forms the basis of the formula. I'd recommend this cleanser particularly to congested skin or skin that's a bit unsettled or unbalanced; if you're getting spots in odd places or you've overdone it with complicated skincare this is a great cleanser to turn to. It'd also be very good for a teenage skin; it's purifying and balancing without being stripping. It's £11 for 50ml.
The Nourishing Night Cream has the same smell as the cleanser (and the same hemp oil base). It's not heavy and sinks in quickly, but is sufficiently moisturising for my skin. I'd recommend this to someone looking for a nourishing night cream that doesn't cause congestion. £28 for 50ml.
These are good natural formulas, particularly suited to skin that is irritated or easily congested/upset by formulations that are too rich. Pukka Skincare is available from www.pukkaherbs.com.
