Beauty Product of the Month: March - Purity organic skin care

The change of season usually means a change of skin care for me. Even for people who have found their perfect products usually still need to change it with the weather, because drier, warmer conditions have an effect on your skin. One skin care range I was quite eager to try out was the Purity organic skin care which is available from Superdrug. This is a British brand which looks very unobtrusive on the shelves and one which I hadn't heard much about before. I literally stumbled upon it, read the back of the bottle and was sold. If you want to find out about individual products I would recommend viewing their very useful website at:

http://www.purityorganicskincare.co.uk/ otherwise, let me give you a quick overview of what this brand is about.

Purity use ingredients with 98% derived from natural origin, approximately 82% of which are processed from organic farming. Compared to the percentages of other brands that class themselves as organic, that's pretty high. With such a high organic content, you'd expect to pay a high price, and that's where this brand is different, because no product is over £8.99, and that's for an anti-aging product. Just think how much people are prepared to pay for anything claiming to have anti-aging effects.

I bought myself the Conditioning Cleansing Lotion (150ml) and Facial Moisturiser (50ml), costing £4.99 and £5.99 respectively. A fair price I think. Purity keeps the cost of its products to a minimum by using just a small number of natural ingredients that are highly effective, rather than a great number of different natural ingredients. The Conditioning Cleansing Lotion for example contains Aloe vera, Avocado Oil, Oats and Rose water for its main natural ingredients, all of which have a specific purpose in making this an effective conditioning cleanser. 150ml of product may not seem a lot, but I find I only need a small amount to cleanse my entire face. The consistency is quite runny, but that doesn't mean you need to apply a thick amount like the bottle states. Just slightly more than a pea sized amount nicely covers my face and with cotton wool, easily wipes my make-up away with it. The moisturiser is very thick, I'd compare it with the consistency of body butters, but without the grease, a bonus since no-one wants a shiny face. Like the cleanser, this is unperfumed, it's not entirely fragrance free, there's just the natural smell of the ingredients used in it.The packaging is nothing to get excited about, it features plain, clear bottles showing the white product within, and just very simple, small text describing the product under the title. It may seem quite boring to look at, and admittedly, not what drew me in when scouting the aisles, but I think this brand is a breath of fresh air amongst so many that offer miracles they can't deliver. It doesn't promise to transform you skin, but is a low budget, high quality product that can help maintain good skin.
