The Body Deli Light Facial Emulsion.

I have had my Spring/Summer beauty box from A Beautiful World for almost a month now, and thought it time to share how I have been getting on with some of the products I received. The first is this 10ml sample of Light Facial Emulsion by The Body Deli
The Body Deli has been created by David Parker and Margaret Skarin who use raw super foods in their range of fresh and organic skin and body care. Their products are made by hand in small batches in California.
I first had a try of The Body Deli when Sandra from Beauty Balm was kind enough to send me some of her Blueberry Fusion Scrub and so was really pleased to fine a sample of a Body Deli product in my box.
The Light Facial Emulsion as the name suggests extremely light moisturiser that has clarifying properties. It helps to regulate oil and sebum production and unclog pores. I have taken the following ingredient list from The Body Deli's website.
(*) DENOTES ORGANICALLY GROWN - Antioxidant Micro-Clustered Ionized Water, *Virgin Coconut Oil, *Jojoba Oil, *Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Ionic Mineral Solution: Silicia, Sulphur, Magnesium, Copper, Cetearyl Olivate an Sorbitan Olivate (Olive Oil Emulsifier), Fresh Cells of Pomegranate, Pumpkin & Carrot, *Green Tea Extrat, *Watercress Extract, *Yarrow Extract, Squalane, *Evening Primrose Oil, *Carrot Seed Oil, *Rosehip Seed Oil, Alpha Tocopherol, Ascorbic Acid, 1% Salicylic Acid, *Olive Leaf Extract, Beta-Glucosamine, Xanthan Gum, Citric Acid, Essential Oils of Blood Orange, *Lemon, Ylang-Ylang, Vanilla Bourbon, Leuconstoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate (Natural Perservative System)
 I have used this every morning since my box arrived and still have about 1/4 of the bottle left, so am pleased with how far this little moisturiser has gone. Really this is better suited to oiler skin types than my dry skin, but that isn't to say I haven't enjoyed using this. For me, this is a lovely light Summer time moisturiser. I really like the matte finish it gives, without drying my skin. It leaves my skin looking fresh and healthy. I can't really comment on how good it is at controlling outbreaks as this isn't my skin concern, but I think this would be very helpful for a lot of people over Summer when the heat and humidity kicks in.
Although I have enjoyed using this and have been pleased with the results I don't think I will buy the full size as is it isn't quite the right product for me. There are other products in The Bodi Deli's range that are on my wish list. The Almond Milk Cleanser and the Crème de la Rose being top of the list.
Have you tried any of The Body Deli products? What would you recommend?


  1. I liked this too but like you said it wasn't quite enough for my dry skin, I much prefer the Creme de rose which is divine! Also the shampoo and conditioner are soo good, great brand :) Xx

  2. Thanks for the recommendation. I am pleased to see you like the Crème de rose :)

  3. Havent tried this brand yet....hopefuly soon :-)x

    1. So many brands to get around to trying x

  4. I was a bit sad that I didn't get this in my ABW box as I really want to try it as I have oily skin! It sounds lovely...I did get the melon peptide moisturiser though which is still lovely :)

  5. That's a shame. I think it would have really suited your skin x

  6. this sounds lovely. I love the shampoo & conditioner. I received the eye cream in my box and I find it irritates my eyes so I can't say I love it. x

  7. Sounds lovely, but I can see why you'd want to try something else it if it's not quite right for your skin type. The almond milk cleanser sounds amazing and I'm with you on wanting to try the Creme de la Rose! x

  8. Not tried anything from this brand yet, but the creme de la rose has my name written all over it. Like u, I also need a slightly heavier moisturiser. Thanks for sharing xx

  9. It sounds really lovely,but perhaps not enough for my super dry skin xx
