Hello hello! Apologies for the sudden disappearance on the blog! I have been travelling (as you may have known from my Instagram posts) and am slowly returning back to normal life. Sometimes you need a holiday from your holiday as its so jammed packed and the schedule full of new and exciting places to explore. Anyway, I've returned home with a fresh mind, plenty of sleep and had a few days to just relax that now I am back into the blogging headspace again. I have realised this past month there seems to be a running theme of cleansers. I don't know why or how this came about (maybe something to do with the fact that I adore using a good cleanser?) but I am bringing yet another cleanser review to the blog...I am a self confessed cleanser junkie after all.
Luxe Botanics is relatively new brand on the natural skincare scene. Rooted from three extraordinary core botanical ingredients — Marula Oil from Kenya, Camu Camu berry from Brazil, and Kigelia Africana from Malawi, the range harnesses the nutrients from these ingredients to help nourish, brighten and clarify skin. Founder of Luxe Botanics - Jene Roestorf has always had a 'deep love of all things natural' which lead her to study and work in the field of nano and biotechnology to give herself a good grounding on the workings of nature and to look at it through a scientific lens. With 12 years of training and working in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries, taking her to all sorts of destinations in the world. Combining her studies and training Jene followed her passion with all things natural, combing and applying her scientific knowledge to find a more effective skincare solution.
I had the pleasure of briefly speaking with Jene and being able to sample the range last year before its official launch, with one of the brand's Discovery Kits. I immediately fell in love with both of the cleansers in the line (and wrote about them briefly in an empties post here). When the opportunity arose for me to try the full size of these products, I was so excited as I had already enjoyed the samples so much. I do believe that the Luxe Botanics Marula Hydrating Pre-Cleaser and the Camu Brightening Cleanser are wonderful in their own right, but combined leave the skin beautifully soft and nourished, making it a fantastic cleansing duo.Read More
