It’s been a few weeks since we did a #selfcaresunday hero product review, and what better way to kickstart the series again than with a product from one of our favourite brands, Upcircle Beauty.
Recently, cleansers have taken on a whole new importance, with much of the advice for managing mask-related skin problems centring on this pivotal stage of any skincare regime.
For this purpose, Upcircle’s everyday cleansing balm has proved itself more than up to the job.
‘This everyday cleanser gently removes makeup, pollution and impurities. Skin is deeply cleansed, soothed and hydrated. Reused, repurposed, reloved. This cleansing balm is made with the finely-ground powder of discarded apricot stones, a natural by-product of the apricot oil industry and rich in antioxidant Vitamin E.’
‘This cleanser is a dream for lovers of natural skincare. With a subtle grainy texture, it feels like it’s really working to remove make up and impurities, but without being drying on the process. The balm is best removed with a warm cloth, which also makes the ritual feel wonderfully luxe. We also love that the product is 100 per cent vegan, cruelty-free and has fully recyclable packaging.’
