Purity Skincare - Natural Products - Review


Hey guys
Recently after reading a few blogs I’ve become a lot more conscious of ingredients in the products that I put on my skin. So when purity asked me if I would be interested in reviewing a selection of their skin care range I was really interested.

Purity is a brand whose products contain 98% of ingredients which are from natural origin and 82% from organic farming. They are all designed for sensitive skin so all contain gentle natural ingredients and are all unscented.

I am going to divide this review into products that I would repurchase and products that aren’t really for me.
Here are the ones that I loved.

Facial wash - £4.99
The facial wash is an unscented gel that contains sweet almond oil to moisturise and aloe vera to sooth. I have oily skin so love using gels to wash my face, the product made my skin feel clean and soft. I loved everything about this product except the smell; it says it is unscented however unfortunately I found it actually had an unpleasant scent.

Conditioning cleansing lotion - £4.99
This is a product that I like to use in the evening to take off my makeup. You simply rub a layer into your skin and wipe off with it a cotton wool pad. This product is exceptionally gentle on your face. Sometimes I feel you have to really rake your face to get your makeup off, however not with this product. It contains avocado oil to help remove dirt and it leaves your face feeling very smooth. Moreover it has a very pleasant scent which I think must come from the natural oils.

Anti-aging serum and mask - £8.99
When I saw this product was anti-aging I thought it wouldn’t be for me, being only 20 I don’t feel the need to use anti-aging products yet and usually find them a bit too heavy for my young skin. This product however is great. It’s a mask that you leave on for about ten minutes and when you take it off your skin feels soft and toned. It has the consistency of a serum so doesn’t dry whilst on your face; you just rinse it off with a flannel when you’re done. It contains cranberry seed oil, rose water to tone the skin and vitamin E to act as an antioxidant.

Now onto the products I probably won’t repurchase. Now I don’t want you to think the products are bad because they’re not. These won’t be negative reviews the products just weren’t for me.

Facial exfoliator - £5.99
This exfoliator contains ground coconut shell and coconut oil to exfoliate and moisturise the skin. This exfoliator had a beautiful creamy texture; however I just didn’t find it abrasive enough for me. I get some really stubborn dry patches of skin around my nose and this didn’t do enough to get rid of them, however if you like gentle exfoliators that aren’t too harsh then this product is perfect for you.



Anti – aging moisturiser - £7.99  Regenerating overnight moisturiser - £7.99
I’m going to group these two products together as for me I found they were very similar. They are both aimed towards more mature skin and like I said before I often find these sorts of products too heavy for my skin. Unfortunately I found this with these two products. I have majorly oily skin so need something very light on my face, although if you have dry or mature skin I think you’ll love these two moisturisers. The overnight moisturiser contains Ceramide 3 and vitamin E to protect the skin and lock in moisture and the anti- aging moisturiser Shea butter and Omega 3, 6 and 9 amongst other natural things to boost the skins functions and leave it looking healthy.


After trying out this range I am so much more mindful of what I put on my skin. I loved the natural ingredients in these products and I think they all do an amazing job for great prices. Here is a link to their website and I think they are available in some Superdrug stores. 

Lots of Love
